What to do when you feel really, really angry!
What do you do when you feel really angry? Like, really, really pee’d off!? How do you cope with anger? Especially when your trying to be a spiritual person?
Like when your angry because someone has pushed your buttons – and by the way, families are often the experts on which ones to push! Do you end up feeling furious, outraged and frustrated?
Christmas & holidays can be especially difficult. Families get together and old arguments and grudges can flare up. There’s pressure to spend what you don’t have and force yourself to be having a good time – even when your not really feeling it.
It’s good to know how to stay cool and calm whenever you feel frustrated and angry.
The best fighter is never angry.
I felt like this recently – I got really, really angry! I knew what I needed to do to calm myself down – but my Ego didn’t want me to go there. Instead, it wanted me to whine and complain about it – and hold onto that damn craziness!
What we need to do when we feel this type of frustration (and you’ll probably feel resistant to this)….is the very thing you won’t feel like doing!
I decided I would not allow my Ego to win!
I sat in my meditation space, I lit candles, I meditated and I felt the stress ease away.
These are things that might work for you:
- Walk away – even if its to excuse yourself and grab a glass of water
- Light a candle
- Sit in a favorite place in your home
- Pull angel cards for guidance
- Simply breathe and relax
- Practice yoga – (see my yoga postures for grounding)
You might find that you feel instantly better. Then you will be better able to focus and listen-in to what your next steps should be.
