Consider this week’s combination an early intervention. When Principle 2: I AM Detached does the tango with the royal blue throat chakra, chances are that your sensitivity is exaggerated and you are about to get triggered by someone’s thoughtless (or deliberate) words… and you aren’t going to be happy!
Perhaps the title is actually the antithesis of what this week is about but that’s because it’s advice rather than a prediction. You see, if you take the advice of Principle 2 and get detached and stay present in the moment with what is, then being triggered by a statement or comment from another is far less likely.
Communication is a tricky business when hidden agendas, egos and personal wounds are involved, that’s why this is a week where you should endeavour to take everything at face value and not read into or between the lines of any information coming your way… at the same time you should aim for your own verbal or written offerings to be immaculate in content so as not to press buttons or be misunderstood or misinterpreted by others.
At the end of the day you control your own reactions so take a moment when a trigger steals your happy to check in on reality:
- Does this have to be true for me? (Principle 4)
- Does this even apply to me? (Principle 4)
- What part of my story is feeling attacked? (Principle 2)
- Have I forgiven the original wound? (Principle 3)
- Am I responding from an empowered or diminished position?(Principle 1)
This is also a week where responding rather than reacting to a trigger with respect, kindness and compassion for self and the person who presented you with this unique opportunity for healing can actually be a genuine moment for connection and understanding.
In order to do this you must first understand that the throat chakra relates to all aspects of communicating: both speaking and listening. When you choose to listen with your heart (which is just another way of saying from a compassionate perspective) you begin to understand far more than you would from an analytical point of view.
Though I recommended taking everything at face value so as not to take anything personally this week, the alternative is to look far deeper but remember that everything you hear is a reflection of the wounds and triggers of the orator rather than being about you. This is not an excuse to use this insight to harm the delivered of the message but rather to initiate a truly open channel for healing.
The Oracle at Delphi says above the entrance “Know Thyself.” If you understand where and what your triggers are then they can no longer be sore spots that cause pain and instead become deep wells filled with wisdom… then you will always be Trigger Happy.
More next week… x
