Are You Conscious Of The Triggers That Occur In Your Life

Published on 4/19/2019
For additional information  Click Here

In psychology Trigger means: "A trigger is something that sets off a memory tape or flashback transporting the person back to the event of her/his original trauma. Triggers are very personal; different things trigger different people. The survivor may begin to avoid situations and stimuli that she/he thinks triggered the flashback.

Being conscious of the Triggers that occur in your life does not necessarily mean trauma. It could mean good vibes, pleasant memories, comments or people.


Today April 18, 2019, I give thanks and appreciation for being once again and for the 16th time, Featured Member Of The Day (FMOTD).  Thanks also to my IBO associates who have helped to make this possible and with their congratulatory messages.


As I re read one of my press releases, I also read the comments from my IBOtoolbox associates which triggered this new release.

"Just reading this made me feel tranquil Cosmos, you capture the essence of your message beautifully in your choice of words and expression. Giving yourself the freedom to live is a quality I feel that many could benefit from .. let's hope that they all read this quite exquisite piece, they'll surely be the better for it."  --->Tom Riach - IBO associate

Thank you Tom!

So what was the trigger? "just reading this made me feel tranquil" I love it when I have that effect on people, don't you? As you understand more of your impact you can be a problem solver.

“Only the development of compassion and understanding for others can bring us the tranquility and happiness we all seek.”
--- Dalai Lama XIV--

I will tell you a little story. Remember we all have stories created in our daily lives.

The story - Caribbean

A about a year ago I was following up on a piece of jewellry stolen from my home, at the police station. Another woman later came in to identify her piece as well.

The supervising officer at the station was present. If you understand anything about some people who have been military trained you would understand (not accept) the attitude ... some times lack of compassion towards civilians and a control-like, frightening attitude, that really do not pay much attention to the answers they receive.

No one told them when they leave the army or reach levels of higher authority, that they need to tone it down and treat each circumstance differently. It doesn't help if before training there was already a level of arrogance. It is a training, I believe that is sadly lacking in most cases, that of rethinking and adjusting their attitude, and the willingness to adjust and understand, when in their new posts. This I believe could better serve and solve issues that may occur.

But to continue the story:
The other person identifying her belongings asked a question and to put it mildly, the answer, the attitude of the supervisor triggered a huge argument.

Because I was sitting there for awhile, quietly and occasionally having conversation with the supervisor, I was fearlessly able to state what I thought and how he was handling the situation incorrectly. I sensed he meant no harm with his somewhat gruff tone, and "I am right attitude" but was causing a lot of damage. I also noted what the lady was reading negatively into something very simple. So I called time-out.

It took me about 45 minutes to interpret for both sides, bring some calm and became the peacemaker. Well, in the end they parted amicably and in good faith.

There are many ways "Triggers" occur. By this I mean reading a book, sitting quietly watching what is taking place around you, suddenly seeing or hearing something that you hadn't seen or heard before, a happy laughter or a child's innocent words. All this can trigger thoughts and ideas that gets you doing somethings differently or starting something new.

So today I ask: Are you conscious of the triggers that occur in your life?

Think about it in your quiet moments. You may well be surprised by the results. Remembering things you had long forgotten. They may not all be pleasant but will get you thinking: "How could I have handled it differently?"  Or, the trigger with careful thought may send you to correct a wrong. Who knows?

May you continue to find your triggers learn from them and be blessed.
