If one is being emotionally triggered, make sure you distance yourself from circumstance and look at what is being symbolized by those circumstances. There is a deep core of an energetic symbolism and/or consciousness archetype that is extremely important in taking responsibility for in our own actions and behaviors. If you are heightened emotionally in responding to the chaos, now in this particular energy, those circumstances are going to be manifested as a recurring theme and intensified because the forces of polarity structure are very amplified during these times.
An emotional trigger is a potential breakthrough for you to get out of behavioral reactions that get you stuck in repeating these patterns. In order to free yourself from patterns of repetition in these life circumstances, it is necessary to maintain detachment or nonattachment to the outcome. That means release all control or desire to manipulate the outcome or to get a result. Hyper vigilance in ego reprogramming and letting go of attachments is needed to maintain the now presence. Are you able to stay awake when everyone else is asleep?
This is what we are endeavoring to do now, for those awakened on the ascension pathway. It is necessary to surrender and cease resisting what is being presented in your life, even though this sounds simple, when there is extreme chaos in the lives of people you love, this is even more important. One will need to apply this in all life situations. If you are not feeding the energies of chaos, you are holding the energetic space to bring the circumstances into the light to resolve itself as quickly as it possibly can. If you try to force your will upon the circumstance, it will amplify the interference and the chaotic energies present.
This is learning to get out of the way of disruptive and chaotic energies that show up in a myriad of ways, sometimes being driven by dominating egos. Learning to get out of the way and surrender to the larger picture is a facet of transparency.
