Navigating Anger

Do you ever find yourself feeling like your anger is too much to handle?

Maybe you get extremely agitated over small things or you feel like your emotions are bottled up inside of you. If so, it’s possible that you are experiencing repressed anger. This is a common issue for many people, and it can be difficult to know how to deal with it. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to help yourself manage your anger and release it from your energetic system.

When it comes to managing anger, using your intuition and Reiki can be great tools to help you learn more about your anger and release it from your energetic system. By tapping into your intuition, you can gain insight into the root cause of your anger and discover the message it is trying to deliver. Reiki can help release the energy blockages that can cause anger to build up in your system.

If you’re experiencing repressed anger, it’s important to take action to manage it. In the upcoming weeks, we will discuss the importance of understanding anger, using intuitive messages to learn more about your anger, and the role of Reiki in releasing anger. By harnessing these tools and techniques, you can cultivate greater emotional intelligence and live a more fulfilling life.

The Problem with Repressed Anger

Firstly, I want to emphasize that it’s okay to feel angry. Anger is just another emotion that we all experience in life. When we feel it, we have a choice to either express it or repress it. Despite societal messaging that tells us “Don’t feel angry” or “It’s not okay to be angry,” we have the right to feel angry–everyone does. However, it’s our responsibility to deal with our anger appropriately.

Unfortunately, anger can cause many problems in our lives, and therefore, we often associate it with something negative or something we should feel guilty about. Anger and guilt can create a vicious cycle that feeds off of each other. This is largely because we haven’t been taught appropriate ways to deal with our anger.

When you enter into the anger-guilt cycle, it can cause all sorts of problems in your life. Anger can build up in our system like a pressure cooker, and when the pressure becomes too much, it begins to leak out. This can lead to sudden outbursts, screaming, slamming things, and stomping around. You may find yourself not wanting to do things and unable to enjoy life, and then wondering what’s wrong with you as you continue to say things you don’t mean and find sneaky ways to get even.

Eventually, if anger builds up for too long, you may lose control and go into a rage, or it can turn into bitterness and resentment. This can eat away at your physical body, causing tension, headaches, and digestive issues. When we feel angry, the body’s fight or flight response is triggered, and stress hormones are released. Prolonged anger can increase your risk for heart disease, severe digestive issues, cancer, or auto-immune disease.

It is important to learn how to feel your anger and find healthy ways to express it so that you can enjoy life and keep your energy balanced. One key aspect of this is understanding the root cause of your anger. By understanding why you feel angry, you can gain insight into what triggers your emotions and how to manage them.

Understanding Anger by Identifying the Beliefs We Have

To understand the root cause of anger and why we feel it, we must first identify our beliefs about anger and work to understand what happens when we experience it. In sessions with people dealing with anger, the first thing I address is their beliefs about anger. 

Often, we want to address our anger because it makes us uncomfortable. You may recognize that you’ve been repressing anger and that it’s leaking out, causing problems in your life. But because you’ve never been shown how, you don’t know how to deal with it. The first step is identifying what you believe about anger.

There are several common beliefs about anger that my clients often hold. As you read the list below, pay attention to which of these beliefs resonate with you. Being honest with yourself is critical. If you’re unsure whether you hold a particular belief, consider how you act and what you think when you or someone else is feeling angry. 

Sometimes we may claim to believe that it’s okay to experience anger, but then we suppress it when we feel it. This suggests that we may subconsciously hold the belief that it’s not okay to be angry.

Other lies that we believe about anger:

  • It’s a waste of time to feel angry, I’d rather be doing something else.
  • Good people don’t feel angry.
  • I shouldn’t feel angry.
  • If I get angry, I might lose control and explode or go crazy.
  • If I get angry with someone, they’ll leave me.
  • People shouldn’t feel angry towards me.
  • If someone is angry with me, it means that I did something wrong.
  • If someone is angry with me, it’s my job to get them to stop being angry at me.
  • It’s someone else’s fault that I’m angry. Someone caused my anger or did something to me to make me feel angry.
  • If I get angry at someone, I have to end the relationship in order to protect myself.
  • If I am angry at someone, they deserve to be punished.
  • If I am angry, I need to hit, break things, or act out physically in some way.
  • If I am angry, I need to shout or yell to get the point across.
  • I can’t be angry at someone and love them at the same time.
