Getting emotionally triggered and reacting strongly (flipping out, blowing your cool, etc.) in a way that you regret later can cause undue guilt, shame, and pain.
Whether it’s intense anger, fear, sadness, shutting down, etc., the strong emotional response could mean that you’re dealing with shadows, a wounded inner child, painful memories, etc., that are eager for you to witness, process, and heal.
Shadow work can be powerful, but it’s not always easy to work through intense emotions that arise as you illuminate shadows.
This emotional health workbook/guided journal offers you the chance to mindfully begin to face, feel, deal, and heal challenging or intense emotions or shadows that have been tripping you up.
Through 40 Shadow Work Prompts and a mindful 5-step “trigger tracking & healing” process, you can actively process stuck emotions/old wounds/shadows one by one as they occur.
It’s the perfect companion to anyone on the shadow work/inner child healing journey.
This helpful resource includes:
- A brief introduction to healing emotional triggers and the brain and nervous system in relation to triggers.
- 40 shadow work prompts to help you continue to become more self-aware, trace the roots of triggers, and illuminate what’s asking to be dealt with in your unconscious.
- 5-Step Tracking & Healing Emotional Triggers worksheets that you use when you begin to feel triggered or afterwards.
