Seven Ways To Release Anger Out of Your Body

Anger is a feeling of powerlessness. However, within your anger is a tremendous sense of power, purpose, passion and meaning because when you feel angry, it’s because you wanted to do something and you were blocked from doing it. People usually think of emotions as good or bad and they think that anger is a bad emotion, that you shouldn’t have it. That if somehow you feel angry, then you are not a nice person, or you’re not a spiritual person. From my vantage point, it is a rather good emotion because if you analyze the frequency of anger, it is an emotion that churns. It is trying to get you off your duff to do something about the situation. The truth is that no emotion is negative unless we refuse to feel it. That’s when it becomes destructive. We are only required to feel our emotions and release them. Even the most beautiful emotion of love will become destructive if refused to be felt.

So, anger is what it is, and if you judge yourself for feeling angry, then you are going to think that anger is bad. We like to feel the so-called positive emotions and take credit for the realities that they create. But what happens when you refuse to feel and release the so-called negative emotions like anger because you are afraid it’s going to be painful? Well it’s your emotion and you created it, so where is it going to go? If you don’t feel it and release it, you will either stuff it in your physical body, or into your extended body called your reality.

So when you swallow your anger, or stuff it down because you want to be a nice person and you don’t want to show it, over time your body might respond with symptoms of pain and inflammation as it is trying to say to you that it is not able to put up with the anger that has gotten stashed in it. If this happens, here are some of the ways you can deal with it.

1. Release all judgments and criticisms about yourself. The purpose of judgments is to make you not feel which is what got you in the situation in the first place.

2. Forgive your body for having to make your life miserable in order to bring this to your attention.

3. Honor and own that this is your creation in order for you to pay attention to, and see how you have given your power away to other people and circumstances to offer you the opportunity to step into your power now.

4.Give your body tremendous love as part of the healing process without any judgments or resentments at it for limiting you.

5.Give your body basic kinesthetic pleasure as part of loving it. Perhaps a gentle massage energy healing or a mineral bath.

6. Address your anger. This is probably the most important step in releasing that feeling of powerlessness out of your psyche so that you are able to step into your power. Remember to reframe and transmute energy.

7. Promise your body that you are going to love it and care for it and you are going to work in partnership with it. This will build trust between you and your body. Then imagine yourself healed in the not too distant future.

If you will take these seven steps, you will release anger out of your body, and you will heal yourself. (DJS)


Create Positive Change

We all have certain beliefs, expectations, and patterns of thought about certain subjects that seem natural to us because we have practiced those thoughts for so long. The number one reason it’s hard to get out of a rut or create change is because we keep thinking the same thoughts about a given subject. Jolt yourself out of an energy rut by forcing your mind to view things from a different, more favorable perspective, and then try to hold that new perspective for as long as possible.

As they say, madness is doing the same thing and expecting different results. If you are wanting something to be different in your life, or just wanting to create some excitement, the change has to start with you. There are no boring lives, only boring people. So if you want a different result, take a different action, even a small one.

A lot of times when people want something or someone in their life to be different, they automatically start from a place of negativity and lack, undermining the change they hope to create. Thinking, “I hate my job, I wish I had a different one,” will manifest more experiences to reinforce that belief. A simple shift to, “I’m grateful for having a job and am in the process of creating an even better one,” can have a huge impact. The new statement vibrates with and attracts experiences of appreciation and hope rather than desperation.

Always act as if what you want is already on its way, that it’s part of your life already. What’s showing up in your life isn’t necessarily what you want. You’re getting a reflection of what you already believe about yourself and your world. A belief in lack creates more lack. Creating change from a place of appreciation and abundance is much more powerful.

All of your power is exactly in the Now. The past and future are literally figments of our imagination, tools for the mind to string experiences together. The Universe only understands now, now, now. Take advantage of the infinite potential each moment holds when it is unclouded by regrets from the past and worries about the future.

Remember, changing your energy in the current moment is literally shaping what you will attract down the road. So get happy now and make an investment in your future!

Toxic Relationships

Every person reading this is either in, has been in, or knows someone who has been in, a toxic relationship. The term is self-descriptive, the relationship is poisonous, and it is deadly. Remaining in this type of relationship may or may not lead to physical death but its emotional toll is no less devastating.

At the risk of over-simplifying what is, in my opinion, a pandemic problem in our culture, ask yourself this basic question:  Is the relationship with my (substitute the descriptive term of any close person) making regular deposits to my positive energy account or regular withdrawals? Really ask yourself this question. Only you know who that/those person(s) are.

Every human being has a reservoir of positive energy and, hopefully, someone adding to it regularly. It’s that special someone that makes you smile, laugh, feel passionate, tickles your fancy, multiplies your dopamine output, etc. Conversely, everyone has a negative energy pool. You know all about this one. “You’re ugly, you’re fat, you’re stupid, you’re lazy, you’ll never amount to anything, or (worst of all) why are you drawing breath-you don’t even matter!”

When you are all alone with only your thoughts and your heart as company, sit down and make a list. Make two columns with the headings Positive Energy and Negative Energy. Down the side of your list name the most significant people in your world. For each name, identify the regular deposits they make in your positive energy reservoir. Put a star or some other mark by the most important contributions.  You know, the ones that make you warm just thinking about them. When you are done with the positive list, consider sending them a card, calling, or if close enough, giving them a hug to say “thank you” for loving and caring for you.

Now, do the same for the negative side.  When you complete this side, notice the people that show up regularly here, but rarely in the positive column.  Then do yourself – your mental, emotional, and physical self – a huge favor: Hit the delete button and get them the heck out of your life! Poison is for rats and other vermin, NOT for people with hearts and souls worth celebrating.
