It’s funny the things that can trigger us. If you’re aware, you will hopefully get ahead of it, but usually, it’ll have the effect of rolling over and falling out of bed, or missing that first step and tumbling down the stairs like a rag doll.

In reality, we don’t want to perpetuate painful programming. We don’t want to keep revisiting hurtful, and totally untrue beliefs about ourselves, or our world. Our minds, bodies, and spirits desire to be in (and will naturally return to) equilibrium, and flow, and in league with the diverse energies of the universe. So, what gives?

Since the earliest days in each of our lives, we’re sponging up the energies, attitudes, ideas, and atmospheres of our circumstances and environments. Long before we can understand words, or even speak, we’re collecting and codifying and imprinting on our DNA the apparent nature of the reality presented to us, suppressing inborn abilities, energies, and understanding.

In our culture, this usually means a lot of stress, trauma, and negativity. This means stunted emotional, psychological, and spiritual growth. This means confusion, frustration, disorientation, and enmity.

Why is self-help such a massive industry? Why is binge-worthy content in such high demand? Why do we stay in shitty relationships? Why are we so lonely — and unable to engage in face-to-face, meaningful conversation and discourse?

You know why. But are you willing to do the work? No one can do it for you, but everyone can be a guide, an angel, or a catalyst. Find your tribe.
