Today I let something external get under my skin.
I got triggered by a complete stranger.
While I was ordering a coffee at the coffee shop it started to pour down with rain. I then overheard one of the coffee shop assistants yell out:
“I HATE MY LIFE!!!!”
She was so vocal and animated I believe she had been heard by the entire coffee shop. Something prompted me to walk over to her and seek understanding:
“Excuse me, I’m so sorry to approach you like this… But may I ask why you hate your life?”
The girl said –
“I have to ride my bike home in the rain, I live 10km away”
I was already triggered by her first shout out, but this made me take a deep breath.
Regardless of my multi-dimensional thinking turmoil, these ended up being my choice of words:
“Oh no, I hope the rain eases off before you finish up today”…
Well the rain stopped after 5 minutes and the sky was already showing its blues as I walked out of the coffee shop.
After processing and reflecting on this moment I quickly turned my triggering into inspiration. This girl in fact inspired me into messaging and sharing, so here we are.
There are a few different things that triggered me about this girls attitude:
1. Having this experience as a customer in the coffee shop.
2. Knowing what kind of impact she had on me, I could also empathise how the other people may have been feeling as a result.
3. The girl operated from a space of ‘hate’ (ego, fear, programming), projecting more hate into the world. It was fascinating to observe this ripple effect and the change in energy in that moment.
4. I found myself (in my own mind) trying to seek understanding and common ground with her concern:
Her cycling home in the rain VS people killed in accidents, lost their loved ones, lost their homes or businesses, experienced trauma of any other kind, and even animals slaughtered for human consumption (it was a vegan cafe)…
As my mind scanned through the above points at lightening fast speed, I immediately noticed my own vibration falling and chose to release my judgement of her. I came to terms that I had somewhat slipped into judgement, and I owned up to it right in the moment.
I reminded myself that people can only operate from a space of their own beliefs, programming, life experiences and level of awareness. Hence I shifted to LOVE in an absolute instant and chose to respond to her with love and compassion.
Do you easily you find yourself judging others?
DID YOU KNOW…
Every time we judge another it takes love away from ourselves.
Next time you catch yourself judging another human being or situation (we all do this from time to time, it’s human nature),
I encourage you to observe your own energy, vibration and internal feelings. What are you experiencing within yourself in that exact moment?
ALSO, DID YOU KNOW…
The space you choose to operate from (respond or react) is the same energy you will continue to attract into your life.
For example –
The more you think, speak and declare
“I hate my life”,
the more you will continue to create those exact triggers.
WHAT YOU FOCUS ON, EXPANDS.
This is the human super power.
This is YOUR super power.
Furthermore, how is your attitude and reactions impacting those around you?
Self-awareness is the key to positive transformation. Take responsibility and use that key to unlock your best self.
YOUR EXTERNAL LIFE EXPERIENCES ARE A REFLECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INTERNAL EXPERIENCES.
I am grateful for getting triggered today. This girl inspired me to unlock my full potential and start serving on a bigger scale.
How do we shift this planet in a more positive direction?
WE AWAKEN AWARENESS
WE START WITH LOVE
Always an honour to share with you…
Yours in Life & Soul Transformation,
