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 can cause a response at the mere mention of their name and 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 constantly emit lovely, light vibrations and are a joy to be around. However, there are some who live under a constant cloud of negative energy and are riddled with angst. These people may think nothing of spewing out their dark angry vibrations in all directions and refuse to accept or change their behaviour, even if it has been pointed out to them how their actions affect others. They tend to find fault in everyone (except themselves) and choose not to see the good qualities in those around them.

Who are they?

Anyone who fits the above description, that you may have had to spend a lot of time with in the past, can act as a trauma trigger. They will normally be a family member, friend, employer or teacher etc. They can literally suck the joy out of your life, just like the Dementors in the Harry Potter books. And because you have felt so bad around them in the past, from their negative energy, they can create a trauma response in you just by simply 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 trigger 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 to surface within you, you can be triggered even after a vast time gap of not being in their presence.

It has to be said though, it is not always negative people who can cause a painful response within us and thus become a trauma trigger. Anyone who is suffering emotionally can activate our pain body and this normally happens when their pain is something we relate to.

If, for example, you have suffered bereavement, being around the recently bereaved and grieving can act as a trauma trigger. Feeling their pain can take you back to your own time of loss and activate the painful memories. However, these kind of trauma triggers normally reduce over time as the 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 and you will find yourself having negative emotions/thoughts about a certain person, who is sending you negative energy. A trauma response can happen 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 said person comes into your energy field through thought, word or presence can be enough to activate you.

How to deal with trauma-trigger-people

We can avoid trauma-trigger-people but we cannot stop them from connecting with us mentally or even physically. This subject is a post in itself and one I will be writing very shortly.

I feel many of you will now be being activated by trauma triggers and psychic attack. You will also no doubt have noticed some strange behaviour in those around you and this is what I intend to write about in my next post. So for now keep practicing your chosen methods of protection daily and remember: we are all in this together and are never given anything we cannot deal with.

Until next time…

  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.
