How to Protect Your Energy Around People Who Trigger You

This is a simple and super-effective strategy to feel more peaceful around people.

Relationships are one of the most wonderful, and challenging parts of being human! We might be ok with most people, but what about that one person who gets under your skin and brings up all the icky emotions?

Years ago there was a person who triggered such strong feelings of anxiety in me because of how she would lash out at people with anger. Just the thought of being around her would make me uncomfortable.

Learning this strategy changed everything! After doing this a few times, one day she walked into the room and I suddenly realised I felt calm. No emotion!

I’ve used this strategy for years and shared it with hundreds of people.

Give it a try – it really works wonders!

  5. Thank you kelly i have wasted so much time on what others think of me. I wil put into practice your simple ways to stay in my own business and remember that my worth comes from within.

  6. Thank you Kelly, this is perfect timing for me.
    I had a situation just last week where I knew I was being bullied, for the want of a better word, and although I was focused on maintaining boundaries of what was my issue and what was theirs I still felt my power and emotional energy zapped. It unsettled me for a couple of days.
    I will be practicing this so next time I will be able to “bubble up”.
    Bless you

    • Hi Elke, thanks for your comment and insights. It’s amazing how much we can use tools like this to change the energy between us and other people so that they’re not able to bully us – or if they try, it’s like water off a duck’s back. So empowering!

  7. Thank you Kelly for this inspirational video.
    It is imperative for me to do this at Christmas time. I love my 2 sisters in Brisbane & will travel from Melb on Sat to celebrate Christmas with them. I already feel anxious meeting with one sister & your insightful approach has empowered me already!
    I wish you, Kelly a Safe and Joyful Christmas 2019 and a Wonderful year ahead.
    Best wishes,

    • Fantastic MaryJane, I’m so glad to hear this is timely for you. Here’s to you staying in your own power and energy. An extra bonus is that this technique is also a wonderful way to practice being present/mindful.
