The Role of Intuition in the Life of a Feeler

Have you had the chance to take the quiz and find out what type of spiritual intuitive you are? This week, we’re diving into the world of Feelers! Did you know that Feelers make up about 40% of our readers? So, there’s a good chance this type might really resonate with you.

Intuition is a really special ability that we all have, which allows us to understand something instinctively, without relying on reason. It can help us make better decisions, solve problems, generate new ideas, and improve our relationships with others. Feelers use their physical bodies and inner feelings to accomplish this.

The intuitive gift of feeling communicates through the physical sensations and emotions we experience in response to people and our environment. As a feeler, you may experience this physically through bodily sensations or emotionally through a wide range of feelings. You can gather information by developing a better relationship with your body and emotions.

Intuition is such a powerful tool for Feelers, as it allows them to connect with others on a deeper level and make more informed decisions. However, there are also unique challenges that Feelers face when it comes to their intuitive gift. In the upcoming sections, we’ll delve into the many benefits that come with using your intuitive sense of feeling. We’ll also discuss some of the challenges that you might face as a Feeler, and provide you with some strategies to help you navigate these challenges.

How Feelers Use Intuition

Feelers use their intuition by tapping into the vibrational energy around them and paying attention to their feelings both physical and emotional. You can then use self inquiry to gain more information about what you sense. Using what, where, why, and how questions. For example you’re thinking about taking a leap of faith and starting your own business. You know you feel excited about it, but you also feel anxious and doubt your abilities. You can ask the feelings questions like the ones below to gain more information about the feeling.

  • What is this feeling trying to show me?
  • Where is this feeling coming from?
  • Why do I feel this way?
  • How is this feeling benefiting me?

Feeling is one of the easiest intuitive gifts to tap into. Even if feeling isn’t your strongest intuitive gift, you can still practice tapping into it to sense the energy of your environment and the people you interact with. When we are in touch with our feelings, they can protect us from potential danger and help us recognize red flags that may not otherwise be obvious.

Feelers often rely on their gut feeling to make decisions. While this intuitive sense is easy to tap into, it is also easy to discredit or ignore. Feelers must learn to trust their ability to read between the lines and pick up on nonverbal cues. Doing so can help them make more informed and empathetic decisions.

The Benefits of Relying on Intuition for Feelers

Feelers possess a unique set of qualities that enable them to connect with others in a more empathetic and compassionate manner. They can do this by tapping into their intuitive gifts, which make them more attuned to their own emotions and those of others. Additionally, they possess a heightened sense of emotional intelligence, which enables them to pick up on subtle cues that others may miss. This enables them not only to build better personal relationships, but also to be more effective in professional roles such as counseling, coaching, and leadership positions.

Feelers possess an innate ability to comprehend and empathize with the emotions and needs of those around them. This ability allows them to respond in a supportive and helpful manner to those in need. Furthermore, their heightened intuition enables them to produce innovative ideas and tackle problems in novel and creative ways. This means that they can use their gifts not only to address immediate concerns but also to develop long-term solutions that benefit everyone involved.

Examples of successful individuals who rely on their intuitive gifts include Oprah Winfrey, who credits intuition for guiding her both in her career and personal life; Martin Luther King Jr., who emphasized the importance of following one’s moral intuition in fighting for social justice; Mother Teresa, who was renowned for her deep empathy and compassion towards the sick and poor; and Brené Brown, who uses her intuitive gifts to help people develop greater self-awareness and vulnerability in their personal and professional lives.

Navigating Challenges of Using Intuition as a Feeler

As a Feeler, you may face a range of challenges when it comes to using your intuition. These challenges can be difficult to navigate, but becoming aware of them can help you to develop strategies to protect your energy, set clear boundaries, and learn to interpret your feelings as valid information for decision-making.

  • You often absorb the emotions and energy of those around you, neglecting your own needs and feelings. To prevent this, it’s important that you set boundaries and practice self-care, prioritizing your own needs and taking time to recharge so that you can better support others without sacrificing your own well-being.
  • Many Feelers struggle to protect their energy, not understanding the importance of maintaining their energy levels for their overall well-being. You can learn how to recognize what activities drain your energy versus what activities replenish it, developing coping strategies to manage your energy and prevent feeling overwhelmed. Prioritizing self-care activities such as meditation, exercise, or spending time in nature can help you recharge and maintain your energy levels. You can also set boundaries with others and learn to say no when necessary to avoid overextending yourself.
  • Weak boundaries can be a common challenge for Feelers, who may prioritize the feelings of others over their own. Without clear boundaries, you may find yourself susceptible to hurt or rejection, which can be detrimental to your emotional well-being. It is important for you to detach yourself from situations or relationships that do not support you for your own personal growth and development.
  • It can be difficult for Feelers when they encounter individuals who do not respond with the same level of empathy or understanding that they would expect. Despite these challenges, you often strive to maintain your empathy and understanding towards others, even when it is not reciprocated.
  • You may struggle to interpret subtle impressions, spending a lot of time trying to decipher these messages, which can be both frustrating and exhausting. However, taking the time to reflect on your feelings and impressions can be crucial for helping you make better decisions in the long run. By doing so, you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your emotions, which can help you navigate through life with more confidence and clarity.
  • Accepting your feelings and emotions as valid information for decision-making is a crucial aspect for Feelers. It is important to acknowledge that emotions can provide valuable insight into your personal values and beliefs. By learning to harness the power of your emotions in a positive way, you can make more informed and authentic decisions that align with your personal values and goals.
  • Finally, you may struggle with structure because you often prefer to go with the flow. By embracing structure and planning, you can gain a sense of direction and purpose, which can ultimately lead to greater satisfaction and fulfillment in your personal and professional lives. Additionally, you may find that by incorporating structure into your daily routines, you are better able to manage your time and responsibilities, allowing you to focus on the things that truly matter to you.

As a Feeler, it is important to recognize the unique challenges that come with relying on your intuitive sense of feeling. However, by becoming aware of these challenges, you can develop strategies to overcome them. Setting boundaries, practicing self-care, and learning to interpret your feelings as valid information for decision-making are all important steps you can take to protect your energy and navigate through life with more confidence and clarity. By embracing structure and planning, you can gain a sense of direction and purpose, leading to greater satisfaction and fulfillment in your personal and professional lives. Remember, your intuitive gifts are a powerful tool that can help you connect with others on a deeper level, make more informed decisions, and ultimately lead a more fulfilling life.

I hope this has helped you gain a better understanding of the role of intuition in your life as a Feeler. By embracing your intuitive gifts, you can connect with others on a deeper level, make more informed decisions, and ultimately lead a more fulfilling life. If you struggle with navigating the challenges that come with relying on your intuitive sense of feeling, consider booking an Intuitive Healing Session. This session can help you tap into your intuition and develop strategies to overcome the unique challenges you face as a Feeler. Remember, your intuitive gifts are a powerful tool that can help you live your best life.

Intuitive Message for Feelers

Dear Feeler,

You possess a gift that is often overlooked but is so important in our world. Your feelings and emotions matter. It’s okay to make decisions based on how you feel about something, but it’s best to wait until you find balance.

Be careful not to make rash decisions based on heated emotions. Instead, allow yourself to process your emotions to figure out how you truly feel about something. It’s okay to ask for time to make a decision and figure out how you really feel about it. I promise you, it can wait a little while.

As a feeler, how you feel about something will often defy logic, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pursue it. If something lights you up, excites you, or fills you with joy, then it is meant for you. Trust yourself and take a leap of faith. The details will work themselves out.

Your ability to connect with others on a deep level and sense their emotions is truly special. Don’t ever let anyone make you feel like your feelings are invalid or unimportant. Keep following your intuition and using your empathic nature to bring comfort and support to those around you. You have a bright future ahead of you, full of opportunities to use your gifts to make a real difference in people’s lives.

How I Discovered My Primary Intuitive Gift as an Audient

In my last post, I discussed the four main intuitive types. If you haven’t already, take the quiz to find out your intuitive type.

The four types are the Audient, the Feeler, the Visionary, and the Prophetic. Each type has its own unique strengths and weaknesses. For example, the Audient type is proactive, highly detail-oriented, and has a knack for comprehending and processing information. People often seek them out for help in getting organized or for understanding and solving problems.

Currently, the most popular type among our readers is the Audient, with nearly half of you identifying as such. (Scroll down for this week’s intuitive message, written especially for you!) It’s also my primary type, and I’ve found that knowing my type has helped me to better understand my strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of the people around me.

If you haven’t taken the quiz yet, I encourage you to do so. Knowing your intuitive type can help you to better understand yourself and others, and can lead to more meaningful and fulfilling relationships.

Who is an Audient?

An Audient is someone who has the primary intuitive gift of hearing or a strong inner voice. The intuitive gift of hearing communicates primarily through sounds, music, and words. Being an Audient, you have a strong inner voice and will most likely experience this gift as talking to yourself a lot. Most of the time the gift of hearing comes through as your own voice, it is internal, not external. However, Audients can sometimes receive intuitive hits through gathering information, reading, listening to others, or a song stuck on replay.

How I Learned I Am an Audient

When I first started learning about intuition, I discovered the concept of clairvoyance, or the intuitive gift of sight. My Reiki teacher was the one who introduced me to intuition, teaching us how to gain intuitive information about the chakras through visualization practices.

However, I have always struggled with my inner vision. For instance, if you asked me to close my eyes and visualize an apple, I cannot actually see an apple. Instead, I can only think of an apple and I know what it looks like because I have seen one in reality. Meanwhile, my peers would have grand visualizations as they practiced and would describe very vivid images of all the things that they saw.

This led me to believe that I wasn’t intuitive. I wondered why I couldn’t experience the same types of visions no matter how hard I tried, or how many intuition exercises I did to open up my third eye and access this intuitive sense.

It wasn’t until later that I learned about the other intuitive senses: feeling, knowing, and hearing. The first intuitive sense that I learned I had was the sense of feeling. As a massage therapist, my clients often asked me how I knew where they were feeling pain in their bodies while I was massaging them. They commented on not having that experience with other massage therapists they had worked with.

They recognized something in me that I wasn’t able to see in myself. At first, I didn’t know what it was, but soon I realized that I was able to feel the pain in their bodies either through my hands or by experiencing the same pain in my own body. This helped guide me to where I needed to work. My intuitive gift of feeling is still something I use a lot today in Intuitive Healing Sessions.

My intuitive gift of feeling is something that I primarily use with others. So, I struggled when it came to using this gift for myself. However, our intuitive gifts are primarily for ourselves and can assist us with making decisions and guiding us through life’s journey. Our intuition does so much for us, including keeping us safe and helping us recognize when something is right or wrong for us. It can also guide us towards people, places, and experiences that will bring us the most joy and fulfillment.

After discovering Human Design, I finally realized that hearing was my primary intuitive gift. According to Human Design, each individual has a strategy and an authority. Your Unique Intuitive Blueprint includes your primary intuitive gift, which you can use to gain your own intuitive information. You can find out what your primary intuitive gift is by taking the Intuition Quiz.

Additionally, your blueprint includes your secondary intuitive gifts, which you can use to help others. Your Human Design, including your strategy and authority, is also incorporated into your blueprint.

In Human Design, your strategy is how you interact with stimulus from the outside and how you use your energy. Your authority is how you make decisions, this is one of the guiding factors for your intuitive type.

My authority in Human Design is self-projected, which means that the best way for me to make decisions is to hear myself talk. I learned to use my intuition through experimentation and by allowing myself to become like a child, learning about the world through the lens of intuition.

To experiment with this information about my authority, I focused on opening up my throat chakra through speaking and singing. This helped me to speak my truth and recognize when my voice was resonating with authenticity. As I continued to open my throat chakra and practice using this intuitive sense, I discovered that listening to my inner voice was one of the most helpful ways to make aligned decisions for myself.

Now, I exercise my inner voice by going on walks and talks with the people closest to me. This way, I can talk about my ideas and the decisions I am making as I figure out my next steps.

If you haven’t thought about it before, take some time to reflect on what your primary intuitive gift might be. It might not be immediately obvious, but paying attention to what comes naturally to you and what you excel at can be a good starting point. Remember, intuition comes in many forms and can be developed with practice and intention.

Have you ever thought about what your primary intuitive gift might be and how it can guide you towards making aligned decisions for yourself?

If you’re struggling to identify your primary intuitive gift, try experimenting with different methods of gathering information and making decisions. Pay attention to what comes most naturally to you and what feels the most aligned. Don’t be afraid to try new things and step outside of your comfort zone.

Remember that intuition is a skill that can be developed and honed over time. With practice and intention, you can become more in tune with your inner voice and use your gift to make more informed and fulfilling decisions in all areas of your life.

In conclusion, understanding your intuitive type can help you to better understand yourself and others. There are four main intuitive types, each with their own unique strengths and weaknesses. If you haven’t already, take the quiz to find out your intuitive type and start developing your skills. Remember that intuition is a skill that can be developed and honed over time. With practice and intention, you can become more in tune with your inner voice and use your gift to make more informed and fulfilling decisions in all areas of your life.

Inutitive Message for Audients

Dear Audient,

You possess an incredible gift for understanding and analyzing problems with a high attention to detail. Your ability to sift through large amounts of information and make sense of it makes you a valuable asset to others, as you often provide the most efficient solution.

However, your strength in gathering and analyzing information can also be a frustrating struggle. You may become stuck in analysis paralysis instead of listening to your inner voice.

To become more in touch with your gift of hearing, start paying attention to the way your intuitive gift speaks. The gift of hearing is most often communicated through your own inner voice, so developing a journaling practice is essential. If you don’t enjoy writing, try audio journaling instead.

Talk things out with someone you trust and ask them to listen instead of giving advice. Giving yourself space to pay attention to your own voice, what you are saying and the tone of your voice as you say it, is key.

If you want to gain more intuitive information about others, your environments, and whether something is right for you, ask yourself what you notice about the spaces around you. How can you use audio to enhance your environment? Pay attention to what people are saying and how they say it. How do you know when you are speaking your truth? When you learn to identify your inner voice and what it sounds like when you are resonating in truth, you will find yourself in alignment.

Many people who are Feelers, Prophetics, and Visionaries actually mistake themselves as Audients because they highly value gathering information, paying attention to the facts, and being able to understand and find a solution to a problem. The gift of the Audient is most accepted by society, and we have been taught to ignore our feelings and gut instincts because we’ve deemed them as invalid ways of making decisions. For Visionaries, not feeling valued for their gifts of vision and innovation may be a common experience. If you find that the above methods do not work for you, it may be a sign to pay attention to your gifts of feeling, knowing, and inner vision more.

Exploring Intuitive Archetypes: Which One Are You?


Welcome to a special edition of the Empowered Intuitive Blog! This week we are exploring the four different intuitive archetypes through the lens of celebrities!

Scroll to the bottom of this post to access the Quiz I created for you to help you determine what type of Intuitive you are!

By taking a closer look at each archetype and what it represents while referencing pop culture, I hope this helps you gain a more relatable (and humorous!) understanding of the various types of intuitives.

Exploring this topic further, we can delve into the specific details of how each archetype manifests in individuals and their daily lives. We can relate each archetype to different pop culture icons and characters to make them more tangible and easily recognizable. Additionally, we can examine the strengths and weaknesses of each archetype, and how they can be harnessed or overcome. This deeper understanding of the archetypes can lead to a greater appreciation of the diverse ways in which intuition shows up in our lives.

This week we will be covering:

  • The four main types of intuitives
  • What celebrities most align with each intuitive type
  • How to begin understanding your own intuitive type based on what I share

Let’s take a look at the types of intuitives!

The Visionary – Jonathan Van Ness

Visionaries have the intuitive gift of seeing or clairvoyance. They possess the unique ability to visualize with their minds’ eye and have a keen attention to detail.

They are highly visual learners and have a strong appreciation for visual aesthetics, enjoying the physical beauty of their surroundings. Visionaries stay up-to-date on the latest trends and designs, so their friends often seek them out for shopping and decorating advice.

Jonathan Van Ness, best known for his role in the Netflix series “Queer Eye,” embodies the visionary archetype. With his keen eye for detail and fashion-forward sensibilities, Jonathan has become a style icon and trendsetter.

The Prophetic – Ann Walker

Prophetic individuals possess a unique gift of instinctual knowing. They frequently experience gut reactions or an instant sense of knowing.

Despite being quick thinkers, they can get stuck in overthinking and fail to listen to their body’s intuition. For most, the gift of knowing is primarily located in the gut, so prophetic individuals need to learn to listen to their bodies. This gift often comes with a sense of knowing something without understanding how they know it.

Ann Walker, the character portrayed by Sophie Rundle in the series “Gentleman Jack,” embodies the prophetic archetype. Her intuitive nature and ability to anticipate the needs of others make her a valuable asset to those around her.

Image item

The Audient – Cassie Nightingale

Audients have the intuitive gift of hearing and a strong inner voice. They benefit from talking out their decisions or journaling, so they can process the messages their inner voice is trying to communicate.

They know when something is right for them based on how they talk about it and need to pay attention to not just what they say but how they say it. Does the tone of their voice match the words coming out of their mouth?

Cassie Nightingale, the character portrayed by Catherine Bell in the series “The Good Witch,” embodies the audient archetype. Her ability to listen to her inner voice and sense the emotions of others makes her a calming presence in her community.

Image item

The Feeler – Harry Styles

Feelers have the intuitive gift of feeling. They gather intuitive information based on their emotional responses to situations and how their body feels. Being a feeler is the most common intuitive sense but is often overlooked. This can make it easy to discredit feeling as an intuitive sense and a way of gathering information.

Harry Styles, the musician and actor, embodies the feeler archetype. With his emotive lyrics and ability to connect with his fans on a deep level, Harry has become a beloved figure in the entertainment industry.

In conclusion, each archetype brings a unique set of intuitive gifts and strengths to the table. By understanding your own intuitive sense, you can unlock your full potential and use your gifts to make a positive impact in the world.

The power in knowing what type of Intuitive you are

When you know what type of intuitive you are, you can begin to understand more about yourself and the unique gifts you bring to the world. This knowledge can help you make more informed decisions and communicate more effectively with others as well as feel clearer about who you are individually.

Additionally, understanding the different types of intuitives can help you recognize and develop your own intuitive abilities more powerfully.

Being able to accurately identify and interpret your intuitive gifts can help you show up in more authentic ways both in your personal and professional life. A stronger sense of your intuitive gifts can help you tap into your creativity and problem-solving skills, allowing you to approach challenges in an aligned way.

Overall, taking the time to explore and cultivate your intuitive gifts can lead to a richer, more aligned and authentic life.

Are You on the Wrong Path? Here Are 10 Signs to Look Out For

Are you feeling stuck in life? Do you feel like you’re heading down the wrong path? Sometimes it can be difficult to identify when we’re on the wrong path in life. We can get so bogged down by our emotions that we lose touch with the root of the problem.

I’ve been there before, where I felt overwhelmed by my own misery and finding a way out seemed almost impossible. Sometimes, realizing that you’re on the wrong path is the first sign of hope before you start to feel like you can finally catch your breath.

This article will help you determine if being on the wrong path is the root cause of why you might be feeling down right now.

Do any of these signs of being on the wrong path sound familiar?

These signs of being on the wrong path may be the very things keeping your stuck:

  1. You’re not achieving the results you want in your life. You’ve set goals for yourself but you’re not making progress towards them. You put a lot of effort into your work because you thought that it would make you happy but instead you feel frustrated and unfulfilled. You’re doing everything you’re supposed to but it’s not actually what you want.
  2. You spend time rationalizing why your current choices are the right ones. When you consider making a choice to follow your desires, you may feel a sense of discomfort or unease, even though you know it would bring you joy. As a result, you might ignore or dismiss your intuition in order to do what seems logical. This could be because you’re concerned about financial security, maintaining certain relationships, or being the “good kid”. You may also find yourself defending or justifying your decisions or judging the decisions of others who are doing what you want to be doing. It’s important to be honest with yourself and stay open to opportunities, even if they may be difficult or uncomfortable to pursue. Remember, the right path isn’t always the easy one.
  3. You have been told that you are gifted, but you do not believe it. You spend a lot of time speaking unkindly to yourself, and you worry that you are not enough as you are right now. So, you focus your energy on what you need to do to improve. You believe that many obstacles and hurdles stand in the way of doing what you love, and that being yourself is the biggest obstacle. You might question what your gifts are or struggle to believe in yourself. You do not feel connected to your intuition on a daily basis and feel like it turns on and off, or you may not even be sure how to listen to it.
  4. You’re not sure who you are anymore. You feel like you’ve lost yourself and the person you used to be. Perhaps you used to experience lots of joy and be extroverted, but you no longer feel that way. There might be things you loved to do that you no longer do. You feel like the good old days are always behind you and that the future is grim. You struggle to be present and express gratitude for what you have right now, because let’s face it, you hate the way things are and you’re not grateful because life isn’t how you want it to be. When someone asks you what you like or how you imagine the future, you can’t even allow yourself to think about it.
  5. You are afraid to make choices that would bring you joy and fulfillment. There are many valid reasons for this perspective. To most people, what you have now is good: a well-paying job and someone who loves you (even though deep down you know that you don’t love them). You feel that the only way to maintain the things you like about your life is to stay in your current situation. To avoid thinking about things, you use food, alcohol, Netflix, or social media. Furthermore, you believe that if you do what you truly want to do, you will be rejected, suffer financially, or both.
  6. You may be feeling lonely and without anyone to talk to about your emotions, or perhaps you have people to confide in but don’t want to burden them or fear they won’t understand. Your social circles have dwindled and you’ve lost friendships, some because you chose to walk away and some due to life circumstances. You wish for people who understand you, but you don’t believe they exist, or you don’t know where to find them. At the same time, you feel like no one in your life really understands you. You’re afraid to burden them or be told your feelings aren’t valid, so you don’t talk about it. You don’t believe anyone can help you, and you think trying to get help is a waste of money, so you don’t try. You’ve been hurt in the past, and you believe it will happen again.
  7. You’re constantly exhausted and have difficulty getting motivated. You hit the snooze button as many times as you can, waiting until the last possible moment to get out of bed. The first thing you do when you get up in the morning is check your phone either in hopes of receiving a notification that will change things or to doom scroll on social media for a while. You spend all day dreaming about taking a nap or a vacation but you never actually allow yourself to get true rest. Then you come home exhausted, but stay up late, procrastinating going to bed because that just means the tomorrow you’re dreading is that much closer.
  8. Nothing makes you happy, and you feel bad that what you have isn’t good enough for you. Guilt and shame seem to be your constant companions, accompanying you throughout the day. They point out everything that’s wrong with you and all the ways you’re a bad person. This voice tells you that you’re bad for not loving your life the way it is, and that if you pursue your desires, you’re still a bad person. It seems that there’s no way you can win, because no matter what you do, someone gets hurt. It’s better to stay where you are. The hope of being happy is so dim that you’re not even sure it exists.
  9. You can’t explain why you dread going to work or being social, and why that gives you so much anxiety. Every time you try to leave the house, you’re hit with a wall of panic that feels overwhelming. You spend a lot of time and effort avoiding those feelings. You worry that they will become so intense that you’ll lose your sanity.
  10. You avoid things you enjoy because they’re unconventional or frowned upon. You may want to pursue a creative endeavor or start a business, but fear it won’t generate income. Or perhaps you have a passion project, but the smart choice is to stick with your 9 to 5 job. Maybe you want to embrace your sexuality and identity, but fear rejection. You may sense that who you are doesn’t fit into the boxes that your family, mentors, and society have set for you, yet you try hard to appease them at your own expense. It can be difficult to break free from these societal pressures, but by taking small steps towards your goals and prioritizing your own happiness, you can start to live a more fulfilled and authentic life. Remember, it’s never too late to start pursuing your passions and living life on your own terms.

If you resonated with any of the signs above, it’s time to take action and start making changes in your life. Start by identifying what you truly want and what makes you happy. It may be helpful to talk to a trusted friend or therapist, journal your thoughts and feelings, or simply take some time to reflect. Remember that change can be scary, but it’s also necessary for growth and fulfillment. With patience and perseverance, you can find your way back to the right path and start living the life you truly deserve.

How You Can Use Intuition and Reiki to Manage Anger

Last week, we had an engaging discussion about the effects of anger on both the body and mind. We explored some common triggers of anger, such as feeling threatened or powerless, and shared strategies for addressing them.

We also recognized patterns we may have developed for dealing with anger, such as lashing out or internalizing our feelings, and discussed healthier alternatives for responding to our emotions. It was an enlightening conversation that left us with much to consider on how we can better manage our anger in the future.

This week, we will explore practical ways to develop the ability to communicate your needs honestly and straightforwardly, while also considering the needs and emotions of those around you.

5 Steps for Dealing with Your Anger

Dealing with anger can be tough and overwhelming, but it’s important to remember that it’s a natural and valid emotion that we all experience at some point in our lives. In this section, we’ll explore practical ways to manage anger and cultivate greater emotional intelligence.

We’ll discuss the importance of giving yourself and others permission to feel angry, recognizing the root cause of your emotions, and finding healthy ways to express and manage your feelings. Let’s dive in and discover how you can better deal with anger in your life!

Take a moment to think about a situation that made you feel angry recently. It’s totally okay to feel angry about it for the next 10-15 minutes as we go through some ways to manage your anger. When you reflect on the situation, what thoughts and emotions come up for you? Don’t worry, I’m here to help you work through it.

The first thing I want for you is to give yourself permission to feel angry. It’s okay to feel angry, as much as you need to. Other people also have the right to feel angry, so let’s give them the space and permission to do so. By allowing everyone to feel angry, you take back your power and give others the opportunity to do the same.

It’s important to remember that giving permission to feel angry does not mean giving permission to lash out or harm others, but rather to acknowledge and process those emotions in a healthy way.

Remember, it’s completely normal to feel anger, and denying those feelings can lead to internalizing emotions and potentially causing more harm. By acknowledging and accepting anger as a valid emotion, you can work towards understanding the root cause and finding healthier ways to express and manage your feelings.

Below are five steps for dealing with your anger. Take it one step at a time and give yourself as much time as you need to work through each step.

1. Identify the beliefs you hold about anger. When you reflect on the situation that recently made you angry, what thoughts come up for you? Often, our thoughts reflect our beliefs. A belief is simply a thought that you give power to by holding it as truth and allowing it to control your life and influence your actions.

For a list of common lies we believe about anger and how to reframe them with the truth, refer back to the Navigating Anger and The Truth about Anger blog posts. 

2. Feel your anger. Anger is just emotional energy and is neither right nor wrong. There are many ways to release this energy. You can physically express it by hitting a pillow, taking up kickboxing, or dancing. You can scream into a pillow or yell into empty space in your car.

Alternatively, you can call a trusted friend to vent, write an angry letter in your journal, or channel your energy into a creative project. Find a method that works for you to release the physical energy of anger without harming others.

Experiencing your anger will help you release the emotion from your energy field. This prevents it from becoming trapped and causing pain, or from unexpectedly resurfacing in the future. 

3. If you feel out of control of your anger, take time to detach. Remove yourself from the situation and change your environment. You could go for a walk or run an errand that you’ve been meaning to do to get your mind off the situation for a bit. This will allow you to decompress, clear your mind, and make a better decision about how to deal with your anger, instead of letting it control you.

You may also need to remove yourself from someone else who is feeling angry. Choosing to react to their anger is allowing their anger to control you. In both cases, you need to detach so you can plan a better course of action. 

4. Ask for what you need. Sometimes, our anger is caused by an unmet need. For example, if someone is interrupting us and we feel frustrated, it may be because we have a need for respect and consideration.

Take a moment to reflect on what made you angry and what your underlying needs are. By identifying our needs and expressing them clearly, we can avoid misunderstandings and work towards a mutually beneficial solution. 

5. Take ownership of your anger. Instead of blaming others with “You made me,” try expressing “I feel angry when you do this because…” This shifts the responsibility and power back to your own self. Although anger is a normal reaction, we are still accountable for our own emotions.

Likewise, other people are responsible for their own feelings and emotions, so let them experience their emotions without feeling the need to fix it. This way, we can all learn to be more accountable for our own emotions and respect others’ emotional experiences as well.

It’s important to remember that anger is a natural and valid emotion that we all experience at some point in our lives. By acknowledging and accepting anger as a valid emotion, we can work towards understanding the root cause and finding healthier ways to express and manage our feelings.

The five steps for dealing with anger are to identify the beliefs you hold about anger, feel your anger, detach if you feel out of control, ask for what you need, and take ownership of your anger. By taking it one step at a time and giving yourself as much time as you need to work through each step, you can better deal with anger in your life and cultivate greater emotional intelligence.

This can help you manage your anger in a healthy and productive way, leading to better relationships, improved communication, and a greater sense of emotional control.

How can you use these steps to better manage your anger? How do you think using these steps would change the way anger affects your relationships and personal energy?

In the next sections, I’ll share how you can lean on your own intuition and utilize Reiki to help you manage your anger.

Using Intuitive Messages to Manage Anger

Anger is a completely natural and valid emotion, and it is essential to acknowledge and express it. When you experience anger, you may tend to react impulsively, but taking a moment to understand the message behind your anger can help you develop greater emotional intelligence and ultimately lead to a more fulfilling life.

It is important to recognize that every emotion has a message that you can explore through your intuition, including anger. 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.

When you feel angry, you can try to take a moment to pause and bring your attention to your physical and intuitive senses. You can notice the physical sensations in your body, your thoughts, and the mental picture of your anger. Then, you can ask each of these what they are trying to communicate to you. By taking the time to listen to yourself, you can gain a deeper understanding of your anger and learn how to express it in a healthy way.

Suppressing anger can lead to negative consequences, both physically and mentally. Acknowledging and expressing your anger in a healthy way is crucial for your well-being. By reflecting on your emotions and exploring their messages, you can become more aware of what is happening inside you.

This increased self-awareness can lead to a better understanding of your triggers and allow you to respond to situations rather than react to them. By tapping into your intuition and becoming more aware of your triggers, you can respond to situations in a more productive and constructive way.

Additionally, you can also seek support from others and find healthy outlets for your anger, such as exercise or creative expression. By doing so, you can embrace your emotions and use them as a tool for personal growth and self-improvement.

The Role of Reiki in Managing Anger

Reiki is a powerful tool that can help you manage your anger. You can use Reiki both as a personal practice and in sessions to support your management of anger.

As a personal practice, you can integrate Reiki into your daily meditation practice. In sessions, there are many ways to utilize Reiki to understand and manage anger, building on the various methods we have discussed over the past three weeks.

Using your personal Reiki practice to manage your anger:

The foundation of a Reiki practice is learning to perform a self Reiki treatment. If you have already taken Reiki I, you know that a self-treatment is essentially a meditation practice that involves placing your hands in various positions related to the chakra system. As you do this, you meditate or focus on sending Reiki energy into the chakras for healing and balancing your own energy system.

If you have taken Reiki with me, you also know that you can use this time to tap into your intuition and gain information about your energy system, which you can use in your personal growth journey.

If you are interested in learning more about how to do Reiki for yourself, I am available for individual training. This will enable you to learn these practices and integrate them into your own life to meet your healing goals.

Meditation has been found to provide numerous benefits for the human brain. These benefits can be further enhanced by practicing Reiki. One of the key benefits is that it can actually strengthen the amygdala and prefrontal cortex. These are two regions of the brain that are central to our emotional regulation and decision-making abilities. We discussed this in more detail in the blog posts on How Anger Affects Our Body and Mind and Identifying Your Learned Behaviors and Patterns for Dealing with Anger.

Essentially, the amygdala is activated when you perceive something as threatening, which can trigger feelings of anger and physiological responses such as an increased heart rate. By developing a regular Reiki practice, your amygdala will strengthen, reducing the intensity of your response when you perceive a threat.

Because of this, Reiki can also be used as a tool for reframing your thoughts and perceptions. By creating stories that help us to see a particular situation in a different light, we can actually change the way that we approach anger and other negative emotions. This is because these stories help us to reframe the threat that we perceive, leading to a more positive and constructive response.

How Intuitive Healing Sessions can support you in managing your anger:

In my signature Intuitive Healing Session, I use Reiki as one of the primary tools to help you achieve your healing goals. During each Intuitive Healing Session, you will receive up to an hour of Reiki healing.

Receiving Reiki allows your body’s relaxation response to fully activate, further enhancing the benefits of meditation. If you find meditating on your own difficult, receiving Reiki is a great way to let go and allow the process to happen naturally.

By using advanced Reiki techniques, such as timeline Reiki, we can send healing to all the times in your past where you have experienced anger. By utilizing a combination of Reiki symbols and guided visualization, we can remove anger from your system and change the stories that keep you trapped in anger.

You will have me as a guide to support you through the process step-by-step, and help you through the work that can be challenging to face alone.

In addition, I use power-centered coaching and practical tools and exercises to guide you through all the steps we’ve discussed over the past three weeks.

This approach allows you to apply what you’ve learned in your everyday life, in your relationships and real-life situations. You’ll be able to communicate your needs and feelings easily without getting stuck in them.

In conclusion, managing anger is an essential part of emotional intelligence and personal growth.

By identifying the beliefs you hold about anger, feeling your anger, detaching if you feel out of control, asking for what you need, and taking ownership of your anger, you can better deal with anger in your life.
