expressing anger

😡 EMOTIONS: ANGER 😡

Anger's a tricky emotion. You might be afraid to feel and express it, because it usually is considered as a 'bad' emotion. If you're honest with yourself you'll feel all emotions. Sadness, joy, love, anger.. 

.

Happiness, joy etc are fine to share why not anger and sadness? Because they're uncomfortable, seeing someone in their anger makes you question how you are with this emotion. It might make you face something you don't want to face.
.
Personally growing up, I was never shown how to feel my anger, express it, move through it and let it go in a healthy way. I saw it as people screaming at each other. I thought, that's anger and it does bad things.
.
But the truth is you don't have to direct your anger to someone. You can feel it, express it and let it go. If you feel like you're angry and judging someone for what they're doing, direct that energy to creating your own version of how you'd do it. Same energy but used in creating rather than destruction.
.
When you repress your anger, or deny that you're angry, the other side can feel it and it comes out as passive aggressive way anyway and that just feels horrible and we all know that feeling 🙈
.
I mainly express my anger during breathwork. If its a group session, everyone lays down, they start breathing. Through oxygenating the body, buried emotions come out. There's loud music, so you scream, shout, shake your body, hit some pillows, let go of the anger so it doesn't stay in your body. I love it ❤️ That's why its always part of the workshops I do.
.
But if you're somewhere that you can't shout or hit a pillow, try this next time you get angry:
- Close your eyes
- Allow the anger to bubble up
- Close your mouth with both hands
- Open mouth let air out into your palms like a silent scream
- Shake your body and head while you do it
.
This releases the energy from your body. If you want to gain awareness of what the anger was about to ease your Ego, ask yourself:
- What am I angry about?
- What's the anger telling me to do?
- Now let that go, imagine you're empty pure light, floating above the situation, fully present and in bliss, ask 'What's the truth?'
- Act on that truth.
.
This helps you to see what's underneath that anger. Maybe you're angry bypassing feeling sadness. But if you sit with that anger, you'll feel the sadness, then it'll go.
.
No emotions have control over you if you feel them fully ✨

What's your take on expressing anger? How comfortable are you with your own anger?

Loads of love to you ❤️
