Recognizing Trauma Triggers: Understanding How Blind Spots Affect Emotional Reactivity with Joe Ryan

Recognizing Trauma Triggers: Understanding How Blind Spots Affect Emotional Reactivity with Joe Ryan

Most of us have such psychological “blind spots,” aspects of our personalities that are obvious to everyone but ourselves. You can find the answers if you care to—or more accurately, if you dare to. This is the roughest mission you can undertake: a direct seek-and-destroy attack on your own pockets of denial.

Identifying your own blind spots is an exercise in paradox, because if you’re aware of a problem, it doesn’t count.

Our guest today, Joe Ryan, has been on a lifelong journey of overcoming trauma, shame, and the demons that plague him as a result of childhood abuse.

With often bone-jarring honest and authentic vulnerability, he is sharing his invaluable insight; paving the way to help others heal from the turmoil and distress of past traumatic experiences.

Joe and I explore how we each can become more emotional connected to uncover and understand our emotional blind spots, empowering us to recognize past trauma triggers so we might mi e behind emotional reactivity. Being emotional and emotionally connected to self are two very unique and different states.

Joe teaches how to go inward, facing our trauma triggers, so we might uncover those hidden blind spots which allow us to become fully engaged and present.

Tune in to find out how lean into those often uncomfortable emotions. In the process, learning how to become more comfortable with your authentic self on this episode of- The Light Inside.

Sweet Surrender: The Role Ego Plays in Spiritually Evolving Past Patterns of Addiction with Dr. Linville Meadows
JUL 8, 2021
Sweet Surrender: The Role Ego Plays in Spiritually Evolving Past Patterns of Addiction with Dr. Linville Meadows

Spiritual Teacher Eckhart Tolle tells us:

“Ego is presented as an accumulation of thoughts and emotions, continuously identified with, creating the idea and feeling of being a separate entity from one's self.”

We learn only by disidentifying one's consciousness from it can one truly be free from suffering.

Psychologist and author Dr. Nicole LePerla shares this: “The Suffering within our world comes from the human egos misguided attempts to keep us safe. It’s always creating stories.”

When we stop to reconsider the words of both Tolle and LePerla, one has to ask- are these stories truly serving me and feeding my spiritual evolution, or are they leading to a destruction of self?

-The Me that is within.

Our guest today, Dr. Linville Meadows knows the often devastating effect of allowing our egos to step into the driver seat. Having walked the journey of his own recovery and through collecting the lessons, tips, and techniques he used to get sober.He adds his observations from over twenty years of helping addicts and alcoholics. Now, as an author, incorporated these ideas into his recently released book, “A Spiritual Pathway to Recovery from Addiction, A Physician's Journey of Discovery"

Linville is hear to today to share his perspective. Tune it to find out The Way Doctors Do It on The lIght Inside.
