Harnessing Our Anger

Anger is an emotion. Emotions are energy designed to move us, to help us to move forward or to teach us something.

Many of us were taught or learned that anger is dangerous, scary and should be avoided at all costs. Anger is like fire… and yes, we do want to avoid being burned, yet think about what would happen if all fire ceased to exist: how would we warm our homes, cook our food or drive our cars? My point here is that not all fire is bad and the same goes for anger.

Anger feels like fire, and it is part of the matrix of passion. Just as fire burns and transforms fuel into movement, we can use our anger as an internal fire to propel us forward; to change.

When we suppress our anger, our internal fire, we suppress our passion. We prevent ourselves from changing, and we stagnate or stay stuck.

Tapping Out on Emotional Overload offers a helpful strategy to help manage anger, or other emotions, that feel excessive or unhelpful.

Again, not all anger is bad. It is our judgment about the feeling and suppressing it or not channeling it into something creative that can be the danger. What we do with our passion, with our anger, and this with our energy is up to us. We can use it, just like fire, to cook food or to burn things down.

For reflection:

  • What are you using your passion for today? Or are you keeping it locked up?!
  • Or just allowing it to unleash without any creative direction?
  • How can you see your emotions differently, allowing them to lead you to your greatness?

  1. An ex girlfriend rang me today (we still get along fine), and as the conversation went along she said something that really shook me. So much so that I felt very angry that she would say such a thing. She said that I didn’t need to do a healing on a friends horse. To me that was the equivalent of not believing in who I was, what I love to do from the heart…and that she really didn’t know who I was.
    So I stopped and thought about it, and realised it was actually not what she said, but why I reacted the way that I did. So I went for a dig…and up popped an old faithful of mine…that rejection I always felt from my dad, that feeling of not being loved for who I am.
    It is amazing what is beneath all those emotions that we do, and the great gifts our ex’s give us, even though at the time we are a little blinded by those emotions they bring up within us.
    I can breathe now…and must sit her down and have a heart to heart. Communication from the heart, in truth, integrity and its love will heal anything…even me ❤
    Thanks for the share Tiffany, and as you said, it is not all bad. In fact it will guide us ever closer to those fears that we hide and the love we are always looking for, behind those very walls ❤

    1. Mark, this is such a lovely share. Yes! People, especially those with whom we have been the most vulnerable, reflect for us our deepest fears. You’ve done the work to see the roots into the past.
      It will be interesting to see if she can openly share her own fears behind her message to you. What I am repeatedly finding, what people say to us is a reflection of what they are saying to themselves. Maybe she’s afraid of her own gifts. (interesting, i’ve been drafting a post this AM on receiving our gifts).
      Namaste and big hugs!
