A Viewer has asked How to use Mindfulness/Meditation during a trigger?


.
.
Here is the principal, our focus on the breath must withstand the eruption of a trigger, our fight, flight or freeze mechanism, the dumping of cortisol.
.
This focus must be strong enough to let thoughts and emotions fade, while observing the body sensations, acknowledging the feelings.
.
This is not easy, so I developed this breathing track model to make it easier, stronger, quicker to accomplish.
.
Our goal is to not dissociate, not try to escape, not leave this present moment, not grasp the storyline and emotional upheaval.
.
It is so simple, not easy, and the focus needed takes daily practice and application.
.
Healing is nothing more than getting to know our inner world, our body mechanisms, our reactions to trauma.
.
Here is another post with a video explaining how to use the breathing track.
