When People Become Trauma Triggers for the Empath

Trauma Triggers EmpathIf you have someone in your life who acts as a trauma trigger they will no doubt have already sprung to mind upon reading the title of this post.

Those who act as a trauma trigger cause a response at the mere mention of their name, and can have the Empath awash with a torrent of painful emotions, just by thinking about them.

For the Empath, feeling other people’s energy and emotions is normal, both negative and positive. Some people emit lovely, light vibrations and are a joy to be around, but there are some who live under a cloud of negative energy and are riddled with angsts that they seem to feed on. These ‘trigger’ people tend to spew out dark, angry energy  and refuse to accept or change their behaviour, even if it has been pointed out to them how their ways affect others. They tend to find fault in everyone (except themselves) and choose not to see the good in those around them.

Who are they?

Anyone who fits the above description, that you may have spent time with in the past, can act as a trauma trigger. They could be a family member, friend, employer or teacher, etc. They literally suck the joy out of life, just like Dementors in the Harry Potter books. Because you have felt bad around them in the past, from their negative energy, they can create a trauma response simply by thinking of them.

If you are a naturally calm and peaceful person, these trauma-trigger-people can feel like pure poison to your energy field and cause any number of painful emotions and/or discomfort, mostly around your solar plexus or heart area.

It doesn’t matter how long it is since you last saw them either, if they felt bad to you energetically and regularly caused painful or uncomfortable emotions, you will be triggered by them even after a large period of time of not seeing them.

It has to be noted, it is not just negative people who activate painful responses within us and thus become a trauma trigger. Anyone who is suffering emotionally can ignite our pain body. This normally happens when their pain is something we relate to or have experienced. If, for example, you have suffered a bereavement, being around the recently bereaved can act as a trauma trigger. Feeling their pain can take you back to your own time of loss and activate the memories of grief. However, these kind of trauma triggers normally reduce as their emotional pain subsides.

How would do we differentiate between a trauma trigger and a psychic attack?

Some people can be behind both a psychic attack and a traumatic trigger. Psychic attacks normally come randomly and out of the blue. In these cases, you find yourself having negative feelings or thoughts about a certain person who is sending you the bad energy. Recognizing a psychic attack takes some getting used to but once aware, you know exactly what it is and when it is happening.

A trauma response can be ignited when the person, acting as a trigger, is randomly mentioned in conversation, seen from a distance or just something reminds you of them. Basically, every time the said person comes into your energy field through thought, word or presence can be enough to activate a response. The trigger may be simple be the reaction traumatic.

Dealing with trauma triggers

We can avoid trauma-trigger-people but we cannot stop them from connecting with us mentally or even physically. Many of you will now be being suffering the effects of trauma triggers and psychic attack and you will no doubt have noticed some strange neurotic behaviour in those around you. The best way to deal with trauma triggers at this time is by continuing to practice your chosen methods of protection and stay in balance in the mind, body and spirit.

  1. Hi
    Just wondering how others have dealt with the source of their psychic attack. I protect myself energy wise but was wondering if anyone has actually said anything to the person who is sending it? Is it best just to deal with it quietly with protection, does bringing it to their attention makes things worse? I’d be interested to hear others experiences. Thank you, bless you all.
