There are lots of posts up on social media about the triggers women feel after a miscarriage. These posts usually come in the form of a miscarriage sufferer holding up a board in the photograph that says, “please stop saying…” or “please stop asking…”. Please stop triggering me.

There was a time when I would have said, “amen!”

Now, I’d rather heal so that I don’t have to feel the trigger at all.  Yes, that’s entirely possible!  And I highly recommend it. 

You will always be triggered if you don’t heal.  There will always be another person to push your buttons. And it will hurt every time.  You can go through the world, and your life, wishing everyone would stop, but you’ll never be able to experience true joy if you don’t heal the pain that is causing your triggers in the first place.

I’m going to teach you how to identify your triggers and the true pain that is underneath them. There are 7 steps in the process and I’m actually going to use snippets from my own personal journal to demonstrate how I healed from one particular trigger that I know you are feeling as well. 

Here are some of the highlights:

5:46 Here I share why it’s not other people’s job to know what is going to trigger us, as much as you’d like them to just stop

6:32 At this point, I’ll get into how triggers develop in the first place

8:15 Common triggers for women who have had a miscarriage or infertility

12:09  I’ll describe the first step to healing the pregnancy announcements trigger

16:18 Triggers make you feel flawed in some way.  Here’s the step that allows you to get at how your trigger is making you feel flawed.

17:04  Step 4 is one of the most important steps in the process. I’ll explain why going back to your childhood is such a critical part of uncovering the true root of your trigger.

21:28 The last three steps are the ones that will make the healing stick.  Triggers can creep back in even after you think you’ve healed. These steps are going to ensure that you heal fully so that your trigger doesn’t resurface.
