Our ten stage triggers are something that will remind us to break out of our “automatic pilot” so that you can be spontaneous, calm, and free.

Ten Stage triggers are reminders for us to come back to awareness so that daily activities can become more meditative and so that your whole daily life can become a meditation practice.

We suggest posting little notes that will remind us to smile and relax. We can post notes so we will see them first thing in the morning, helping to set the tone for the day.

We can stick a note to our computer screen or wherever we work, in order to remind us to detach ourself from the flow of habitual thoughts and emotions for a few breaths.

Ten Stage triggers can also be ordinary actions or objects in our environment. We can learn to associate those actions and objects with being stage aware, so that they act as reminders to be aware. We find that what we call “transitional stage events” make the best ten stage triggers.

A transitional event is an action that involves changing from doing one thing to doing another. So walking through a door can be a transitional event that acts as a stage trigger, as can getting into our car, or stepping onto a train, hearing our phone ring, or putting down a briefcase.

Cultivating ten stage triggers

You can cultivate ten stage triggers by choosing a particular transitional event, and consciously reminding ourself to become aware whenever that event occurs. For example, when the phone rings, we can remind ourself to take our awareness to our breathing, and to smile, and to breathe deeply three times before we reach for the phone.

Stage triggers can be very powerful “wake up calls”. We might be in the habit of grabbing habitually for the phone as soon as it rings. This tends to add to stress, since the compulsive nature of the grabbing suggests that the phone is in charge of our lives — since we can’t control when the phone rings we’re not in charge of our own lives, which is inherently stressful.

That small gap that we produce after the phone rings and before we pick it up reminds us that we have choices. We can choose to calm ourselves by consciously taking a few deep breaths, and we can choose to pick up the phone in a friendly state of mind by smiling.

Any other stage trigger can be used in a similar way. We use stage triggers as opportunities to wake up from automatic pilot and to be more fully alive in the present moment. We let go of thoughts of past and future, and in doing so we let go of some of the emotional turmoil that those thoughts engender.

We can even associate a phrase or image with a trigger – for example we could say to ourself “opening my heart” as we open the door to our house, and take our awareness to our emotions as you do so.

The Ten Stages is a studied recovery course. It is a source of reconnection a method of unlearning and a reintroduction to our child within which leads us back to our one true intuitive voice.We start to learn and come out of our protective dysfunctional shell and reclaim our lives.
