• you will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. the true power is sitting back and observing.
  • how to do shadow work:
    • begin to view emotional triggers as teachers, showing you what needs healing.
    • take 3 deep belly breaths
    • PAUSE. ask: "what am i feeling?"
    • practice FULL self compassion with no judgement around how you feel. MANTRA: "i accept this."
    • when a person triggers you, ask: "what trait in this person is activating me?" (this is what you deny in self, or a past wound looking to be resolved.)
