  • buttonsLet’s Talk About Buttons!!

We all have them. Perhaps we haven’t all called them buttons.A button is a automatic reaction to a situation that comes from the unconscious mind where we have stored  experiences that upset us. Buttons are primarily linked to frustrating, aggravating, fear inducing situations from a time in the past when we were young and felt most vulnerable. Essentially when we find ourselves over reacting we should look for the button. Freeing ourselves from our button reactions, and finding peace, can only happen by looking at the button within us rather than directing our emotion against the person who has triggered it.  Click here

  • Drama Triangle – The Role of Victim, Hero and Villain in Every Conflict.

Gary Harper starts out by telling us that in classic tales, we encounter three types of characters: the victim (often portrayed as a damsel in distress or an innocent youth); the villain (a witch, giant or dragon); and the hero (the white knight or prince). We encounter these characters in our everyday life – on TV and in movies, in the workplace and at home. Because we experience our own conflicts as stories, we unconsciously adopt these roles. – Click here.
