Our Life Response Kit
When a drama or struggle triggers us! how can we respond instead of react?

I remember the days and nights while care giving for my Dad, such precious time. As I would fall asleep in the upstairs bedroom I hear his life support oxygen machine helping him breathe. We also received a Pain Support Kit to be administered by the nurses when he had discomfort right to his last breath.

He could not be alone any longer and the support we  put in place for him kept him comfortable, content and happy. This personalized daily supportive environment for Dad inspired me to write the following article....Our Life Response Kit. We all need to find ways to support ourselves daily. I am so grateful.


~Our Life Response Kit~

Life has a way to take us into dramas and situations where we may find ourself triggered with a negative emotional charge or reactive with fear, self-doubt, and anger.

When this feeling of being out of control rises up, anxiety can take over causing a sudden reaction that may not serve our highest good in the moment.

After the dust of emotions have settled, have you ever thought to your self? "I wish I could have done this differently" or "If only I would have stayed calm".

Becoming conscious of what is really going on at the point of ignition takes practice, as we connect to any feelings that are triggered within and be aware of what life experience is causing us to react.

Our world that evolves around us continually takes us to our inner world to journey with truth as we become present with our soul's evolution.

As we take responsibility for what is going on and discontinue blaming anyone or anything, the whole experience of life can be a dance of awareness and an expression of presence.

The presence of peace, unconditional love, abundance and the fullness of worth.

Dramas and experiences of struggle seem to come out of nowhere. Know that the other person or yourself are looking for attention. This experience is for us to give ourselves attention so that we can respond in a healthy way instead of react with emotional charge.

Here is a Life Response Kit that you will not want to leave home without.

Each step becomes an important moment in process.

When you see or feel a drama showing itself....
