The Trigger Cycle Unveiled: Keys to Unlocking Lasting Peace in Your Marriage Ep 167 | The Marriage Coach
 

This week I delve into a concept that’s been on my mind: the trigger cycle. This cycle—activated by something your spouse does—can lead to a reactive dance of fight, flight, freeze, or fawn responses. But fear not! There’s a way out of this cycle—one that leads to lasting peace in your marriage.

Understanding the trigger cycle is the first step towards breaking free from its grip. By recognizing what’s happening in your body and practicing self-awareness, you can begin to unravel the patterns that keep you trapped in this cycle of conflict and distance. In this episode, I’ll share practical strategies and real-life case studies to help you navigate this journey towards greater harmony and connection in your marriage.

As you listen, I encourage you to reflect on your own experiences. Where have you noticed the trigger cycle in your marriage? What’s one thing you can start doing today to interrupt this pattern and create a different result next time?

If you find yourself struggling to navigate the trigger cycle or any other challenges in your marriage, I invite you to book a Courageous Love conversation with me. Together, we can explore your unique situation and develop practical strategies to move towards greater harmony and intimacy in your relationship.

I hope you find this episode insightful and empowering as you embark on your journey towards lasting peace in your marriage!

Breaking the Chains: Unlearning Destructive Communication Patterns: Ep 164

Breaking the Chains: Unlearning Destructive Communication Patterns: Ep 164 | The Marriage Coach

I’m thrilled to announce the release of my latest episode of the AwakenYou in Your Marriage podcast: “Breaking the Chains: Unlearning Destructive Communication Patterns.” In this episode, we delve deep into the transformative process of shedding old communication habits to pave the way for healthier, more fulfilling relationships.

As we reflect on the first quarter of 2024, it’s crucial to evaluate the patterns and dynamics within our marriages. Communication plays a pivotal role in fostering connection, understanding, and growth. However, certain patterns can hinder our progress and create barriers to intimacy.

In Episode 164, I explore four common destructive communication patterns:

  1. Withdrawing and avoiding: Recognize the tendency to shut down or avoid important discussions.
  2. Escalation: Understand the impact of intensifying conflicts and learn how to de-escalate tensions.
  3. Negative interpretation: Challenge assumptions and cultivate empathy to foster understanding.
  4. Invalidation: Learn to validate your partner’s feelings and experiences instead of dismissing them.

Through insightful discussions and actionable strategies, you’ll learn how to identify these patterns, understand their impact, and implement healthier communication habits. From recognizing triggers to fostering empathy and validation, I’ll empower you to break free from old habits and cultivate deeper connections with your spouse.

I invite you to listen to the episode on your favorite podcast platform and share your thoughts and insights with our community. Together, we can embark on a journey of growth, understanding, and transformation in our marriages.

Thank you for being a part of the AwakenYou community. Your support and engagement mean the world to me, and I’m honored to accompany you on this journey toward a more fulfilling relationship.
