They happen to us at work, in relationships, and in interactions with complete strangers.⁠

H̲e̲r̲e̲’̲s̲ ̲h̲o̲w̲ ̲t̲o̲ ̲u̲s̲e̲ ̲t̲r̲i̲g̲g̲e̲r̲s̲ ̲f̲o̲r̲ ̲g̲r̲o̲w̲t̲h̲:̲⁠

𝟏. 𝐅𝐞𝐞𝐥 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐚𝐬 𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐠𝐲⁠
Relabel what you are feeling as energy. Allow the energy to go through you. Try not to label it or react to it. Just acknowledge and breathe.⁠

𝟐. 𝐏𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐞 𝐨𝐛𝐬𝐞𝐫𝐯𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧⁠
We have been in a subconscious habit of reacting to our triggers. In the beginning observing the trigger will feel almost impossible. Use your journal to write down what your feeling even if it doesn’t make sense. Every time you observe your reaction acknowledge how difficult this was and assign a positive emotion to the experience. As you practice the pathways of the brain will change and you’ll be less inclined to go into habitual reaction.⁠

𝟑. 𝐋𝐨𝐜𝐤 𝐢𝐧 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬⁠
Use this affirmation as often as needed. Breathe and say this while connecting to the emotion of gratitude “I am grateful for this emotion and what it can teach me.” Linking any thoughts with emotion helps to actually change you. It’s what manifestation is all about. Thoughts and feeling together are very powerful.⁠

𝟒. 𝐁𝐞 𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐟𝐮𝐥 𝐨𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐧𝐞𝐰 𝐫𝐞𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐩 𝐭𝐨 𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬⁠
With some presence and practice you will begin to see how your ideas around emotions are shifting. You become lighter and more willing to have a different emotional experience. Each time this is practiced you become more aware of your own behaviors, habits and thoughts. Self-awareness will be your reward.⁠

𝟱. 𝗥𝗲𝗹𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗲⁠
Allow yourself to process and move forward. Do not push yourself to observe and learn if you’re having a natural resistance to it. Be patient and use your intuition to let you know when to release.⁠
