About This Class

Hi there, my name is Chantelle. I'm a meditation, mindfulness and EFT expert from New Zealand, with a qualification in Ayurveda since 2009. I have become an expert in dealing with and understanding emotional triggers through working closely with PTSD triggers and CPTSD triggers. I am definitely someone who can relate to living with constant triggers myself so learning to overcome them for myself and to help my clients has really given me insight to the dynamics and how they affect our mental health and the relationship between triggers and how they affect our situations and perceptions. 

Emotional triggers are a hot topic right now for so many reasons. We are growing as a human race, evolving consciously to new heights of awareness and in order to do that, we need to become aware of our suppressed emotions and pre-programmed thought patterns and reactions. 

Join me as I clarify what emotional triggers are, how they show up in any situation or issue we may be dealing with and how we can recognize when they are affecting us in our everyday lives. When we have the ability to be aware of their presence, we also have the ability to release them and heal ourselves of our programmed reactions to become more conscious and in control of our emotions and as a result, more in control of our own lives. 

In this workshop you will be shown how a situation or issue in your life right now involves an underlying emotional trigger that is orchestrating and attracting this issue into your life. Step by step, I will help you acknowledge what emotion that is and how to release it with EFT so you can be free of the suffering it is causing you.

With this new knowledge and awareness, you will then be able to use this new skill to release triggers that show up in any area of your life in the future. 


To release triggers as explained in this workshop with EFT, you need to have at least watched and tried out the basics of EFT as learned in my first tutorial called "EFT for Beginners". Releasing triggers with EFT is more of an advanced style of using EFT. I recommend practicing simple symptom release first as shown on the beginners workshop for a while to become used to the feeling of releasing symptoms before you release deeper emotional triggers as shown in this workshop. If you are a beginner I would suggest tapping on the initial emotion you feel when seeing how you feel about a situation rather than digging more deeply to get to the core issue (just until you feel comfortable with the releasing effect), then you can move into treating core issues when you feel confident releasing a few symptoms in a row, as core issues will often surface a layering of symptoms. 

See you inside! :)

1. Introduction: welcome to profound liveliness. So I'm going to talk to you today about how to recognize and release emotional triggers. Now, this is a workshop that you can do at home, too. Face, recognize what your emotional triggers are that are currently playing out right now and how to release them. So let's get status. So our workshop intention today is to recognize, first of all, what situation is going on. Second role. What is the underlying emotion that is causing this trigger to play out punitively and three, We want to be able to release these triggers. Right? So the best way to do that is actually through the emotional freedom team, mate. Now I'm gonna be showing you all of this today. And you will by the end of it, no house. Who'd No. We knew triggers are around and how to release them. So here we go. 2. Identifying Who We Are: Obviously, it's important to distinguish the difference between who we are, and here we are not. They may explain. First of all, let's start by writing down three good qualities about yourself that you know other people appreciate about. You just take a moment and just write down those three qualities. 3. Who We Are And Who We're Not: Now, these qualities that you've written down break present who you are is a visit. All right there, your personality traits, but there, once toe, hold onto once, too. Identify yourself. It's being so who you are. Aspects of your personality that others appreciate about you, the world you've written down as well as your outgoing who common nature, your culture, your ethnicity, your passions and talents, your hopes and desires. Your wit, charm, incidence of humor. These are all things that you can identify yourself as being who you are not gonna change. They are who you are. Do you have no your past Dave's? I mean situations, things you did in the past. Your reactions, how you react to situations, how you've reacted in the past does not need to be a stable identification about who you are as a person. Then it's how you doubt with things in the past, people learn people grow. They move through things and learn different ways of coping, better ways of coping. This is why it's important to realize that this is not who you are. This is just how you have been able to cope up until now, your emotional grief, your health problems, your current limitations, your fears and your insecurities. These are all traits and aspects of ourselves that should not be identified with who we are . 4. What Are Emotional Triggers?: So what is emotional baggage? What are emotional triggers? Baggage refers 12 negative past experiences that have left scars on our body, mind and spirit. These events and situations in the past have shaped our opinions, our thoughts, our beliefs and our behavior into how we function today. The baggage is the part about shaping that is no longer serving us and needs to be released in order for us to move forward and reach out for potential. These forms of baggage include things like our emotional issues, al negative thoughts out physical pain and out negative reactions to our past experiences. For example, if you've experienced a loss off any description, a break up traumatic experience, ah, hash opinion off the opposite six. Because, let's face it, we've got a harsh opinion of the upset seeks. We've had a bad experience here, which has formed the reasoning behind why we have an opinion, although since six the same goes with opinions off other races, other religions or judgments towards a certain lifestyle, and also physical pain or injury that has created a negative outlook on your life. A negative spiritual experience that has done the same thing created a negative perspective . All of these things create what we call triggers. So if anything comes up like this again, anyone talks about it, we've given toe a similar situation. Someone expresses an opinion that reminds you off a past event or a belief that you now have because of the past of ink, they are triggers emotional triggers. And we need to deal with these emotional triggers so that we don't get triggered because, let's face it, that's not how we want to react all the time. 5. Identifying Your Emotional Triggers: Let's identify a trigger that is currently playing out in your life. Think about an area of your life that you're finding difficult with challenging. Well, things just aren't working for you. Might be in your relationship. Might be to do with communication or feeling connected. Or you're not receiving what you need from a partner, a family life. I'm same thing. Connection with family members, Children, our relatives. Maybe we're having an argument with someone, and conflict is part of our lives. We'd like to deal with that conflict. Finances, maybe a feeling and secure about your financial position. You'd like to be wealthier that you don't know how I would like to find some way of moving through the trigger. Maybe you have a health condition that's just giving you down while stressing you. Maybe there's problems at work, conflict or, you know, able to escalates through your job as quickly as you might want to. We're finding barriers to doing your job spiritually issues all social problems, anything at all that you're not happy with about your life now right down the problem or situation. Now you can just take your time to write down what it is that's bothering you every detail . You don't have to write every detail, but as much detail as you feel you want to write, take this time to pro Cease. What's going on in your mind on Sometimes it helps just like talking to a counsellor. Look at it as expressing yourself and giving the problem out there onto paper. Now here are some examples. I'm finding it hard to communicate with my partner. I don't feel like I'm appreciated at work. Or perhaps I'm not hitting targets like I want to pay. I'm being bullied by a family member or friends or colleagues or balls. I'm feeling overwhelmed and distressed or I'm struggling with anxiety. Well, whoever, it May bay brush it down. 6. Finding The Core Issue: Now ask yourself, How does this make you feel? What's the emotion that arises? What sorts of feelings doesn't surface When you have an answer? Try asking yourself the question again. Or if it's not appropriate to say, How does it make you feel? Maybe just a simple why, If you can answer, how does it make you feel or why? Why do you feel like that? Then keep asking yourself those questions until you can no longer continue that process. All right, so you can no longer answer why or how does that make you feel? That is the solid answer that is the end of the line. That is your core pressure. Okay, now give you an example of how to do this. So in this example, I am being bullied. So how does it make you feel? Well, it makes me feel angry. Why doesn't make you feel angry because they're trying to make me think I am the limits in the wrong. How does it make you feel angry? Why? Because it's not fair to be blamed for something that isn't my fault. How does that make me feel confused and insecure? Why? Because I'm not in control of the situation. How does that make you feel? Anxious Palace. Do you see the process that we went through there? We've got to a point where we lift with just one feeling or a couple of feelings or emotions. Right? And this, this is your core issue. Okay? We have discovered at the very core of the situational problem, there's a feeling of anxiety and powerlessness. Often, these feelings that come up that are at the core of these issues, uh, brought with us from our childhood days events that happened in our childhood. That left us feeling this way. We now attract the same situations over and over again until we can clear the stored emotion from the past. 7. Treating The Core Issue: So how do we clear the core issue? Fastest and easiest way to clear these emotional stores or emotional triggers or al emotional baggage is to use what's called A of T, which is short for the emotional freedom technique. Now the emotional freedom technique is being used all over the world by psychologists, psychotherapists and counsellors, as well as if to practitioners to help people reduced symptoms that are causing them psychological distress, thoughts, feelings, emotions, physical pain and memories. We can clear the majority of these symptoms with e of tae have done correctly, So I'd like to introduce you to this concept of this steep make. 8. What is EFT : So what is a empty if t is a tipping teat make that is similar to acupuncture by tapping on Meridian points while describing demure experiencing After completing a round or two of dft , it will decrease the intensity of the symptom that you're experiencing, and often it significantly decreases the intense today. 9. Creating your EFT Sentence With Your Core Issue: right now we need to create our Eve Tay Sington. Here are some examples of Eve Tay sentences so say someone is feeling anxious. This would be a sentence to help decrease that anxiety. Even though I am feeling very anxious, I deeply and completely accept myself. 10. Follow Along To Release Your Core Issue With EFT: Okay, so now we need to take on the points while we say the sentence. The most effective method is to tech hold each point while you say the entire symptoms. So even though I feel anxious, I deeply and completely accept myself and then move onto the next one. Even though I feel anxious. I didn't plead incompletely exit myself. And then you move through each point saying the complete sentence until you've done one round of eager to. So I'm going to do a team plate here for you. I'll tep on each of the points. I leave enough time between each point so that you can say in your mind your own sentence and just follow along with May as I take on the points. So the ego that's one round of E. F. 11. Releasing A Few More Underlying Symptoms: you may find that after tapping on one symptom, you now have another, which is totally normal. This just means that now you need to tap on the next Boston team symptom. So you may have released anger, and now some sadness has come up. That's perfectly normal. What you doing now is you create another E of T symptoms to describe the new symptom that you're experiencing, and then use TFT on that until that decreases, and possibly until that either changes into something else or you feel pizza, so quite often you might need to do four or five different symptoms that come up. Sometimes you might get away with just doing one, and it's gone, and that's great. And then other times it may be a layering effect off a few symptoms that it clustered together, so you need to release all of them one by one as they come up. The more you release the BT, you feel afterwards, it's really quite empowering. To be able to remove these layers as easy as it is with a hefty toe, make you feel better about how it is that you're feeling so that the rest of your day has speaks in a great mood rather than still having to deal with this anxiety or anger or whatever it is that you may be experiencing. 12. Conclusion: great. So that's how you treat your court issue with a empty now. He should be feeling a whole lot better. Should be feeling the reduction in those core issue emotions and feelings. Now you know how to use FTP to treat any court issue or any emotional trigger that arises in any situation. So I hope you've enjoyed this. Which up? And I hope you join me in the next one.
