Processing Anger With An Open Heart


On Feb 19, 2013 Nancy, a Swan wrote:

 We are all actors on each others stage. Anger is a motivator to actualization: More Self Knowing. Anger is an emotion is produced by feelings and thoughts about an experience we assume an injustice has occurred. To manage the gift of anger productively we must look at the WHY of it objectively as the Neutral Witness. 

Anger often signals suppressed feelings of inadequacy and hopelessness. It is road rage personified.  Not excusing in someone the same offense we have been "guilty of".  Making the other person wrong w/o asking them their motives,  we protect deeper feelings we do not want to own:  we have cast our Shadow onto them. Our ego loves our self-righteous indignation. 

EQUALLY: The person who is the recipient of the anger is repressing anger of their own no matter how innocent the remark may have been. So it is a major opportunity to release the martyr hood belief of "when I speak my truth I get burned." Major theme of many Light Workers.

Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate. Carl Jung
