Anger

Anger is a scary, overwhelming energy that many of us unconsciously resist as a protective mechanism. It is a very low vibration feeling stored within our energy fields and within the tissues and organs of our body. It feels terrible when it is activated within our being and because of this; we oftentimes resist fully feeling our anger. When anger arises, if we would give it a few minutes to be fully felt, without overreacting and unleashing it on another being, we would release it.

It may differ from person to person; women, for example, are more likely to describe anger slowly building through the body rate, while men describe it as a fire or a flood raging within them. Of course, it varies by what's acceptable in the culture as well: Some Asian cultures may experience anger in a milder way and for a shorter time than Caucasian Americans.

Though considered to be a psychological problem, anger is related with the poor liver function. Most organs are connected to an emotion and liver is the organ connected to the anger. It stores not only our anger but the anger from others as well.

Bile is produced by the liver and stored in the gall bladder, which makes these two organs vulnerable to negative choleric emotions like anger, irritability, frustration, resentment, jealousy and envy. Anger and rage can explode upwards from the liver into the head, causing a lot of havoc in their wake: headaches, migraines; and muscular tension in the neck and shoulders.

If your liver is unable to render a toxin harmless for you, it'll store it for you to keep it out of your blood. The toxic energy stored will eventually affect the organs function and leads to anger problems. (See Liver Cleanse for total health and Anger Cleanse) Functions

Anger triggers the body’s ‘fight or flight’ response. Other emotions that trigger this response include fear, excitement and anxiety. The adrenal glands flood the body with stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol. The brain shunts blood away from the gut and towards the muscles, in preparation for physical exertion. Heart rate, blood pressure and respiration increase, the body temperature rises and the skin perspires. The mind is sharpened and focused.

In the brain, the amygdale, the part of the brain that deals with emotion, is going crazy. It wants to do something, and the time between a trigger event and a response from the amygdale can be a quarter of a second. But at the same time, blood flow is increasing to the frontal lobe, specifically the part of the brain that's over the left eye. This area controls reasoning and is likely what's keeping you from hurling a vase across the room. These areas generally balance each other out quickly; according to some research, the neurological response to anger lasts less than two seconds. This is why you get a lot of advice about counting to 10 when angry.

Problems

The constant flood of stress chemicals and associated metabolic changes that accompany recurrent unmanaged anger can eventually cause harm to many different systems of the body. Some of the short and long-term health problems that have been linked to unmanaged anger include:

  • Headache
  • Digestion problems, such as abdominal pain
  • Insomnia
  • Increased anxiety
  • Depression
  • High blood pressure
  • Skin problems, such as eczema and psoriasis
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke etc.

Symptoms

The response varies from person to person, but some Common symptoms include:

  • Teeth grinding
  • Fists clenching
  • Flushing
  • Paling
  • Prickly sensations
  • Numbness
  • Sweating
  • Red, sore, bloodshot eyes
  • Muscle tensions and change in body temperature

Causes

A leading cause of anger is a person’s environment. Stress, financial issues, abuse, poor social or familial situations and overwhelming requirements on your time and energy can all contribute to the formation of anger. As with disorders such as alcoholism, anger issues may be more prevalent in individuals who were raised by parents with the same disorder. Genetics and your body’s ability to deal with certain chemicals and hormones also play a role in how you deal with anger; if your brain doesn’t react normally to serotonin, you might find it more difficult to manage your emotions.

Anger Cleanse

Some people consider that anger is a bad emotion and choose to suppress it. However, bottled anger often turns into depression and anxiety. Some people have very little control over their anger and tend to explode in rages. Raging anger may lead to physical abuse or violence. A person who doesn’t control their temper can isolate themselves from family and friends.

However, neither explosion of anger nor its suppression can be advocated; as both have minimal benefits and maximum harms. Some people who fly in to rages have low self-esteem and use their anger to manipulate others and feel powerful. On the other side people with bottled anger are often abusive to kids, pets and other innocents. Anger Cleanse not only helps you to get rid of these negative emotions, but also helps you live a healthy life.

Following are some basic techniques, you'll find the depression lifting and the triggers that used to key your anger no longer working.

1. Smiling Energy and Healing sound technique

Healing Sound

  1. Find a comfortable, quiet place to sit with your hands in your lap (right over left). Connect mentally to the location of the liver because the use of the healing sound and light for the liver will be employed. The better the connection, the quicker the results will be.
  2. Practice you’re breathing as explained on page no.5. Bring your breath deeply (through your nose) to the bottom of your lungs and link up mentally to your liver. As you start to exhale, tilt your head back with teeth clinched, tongue to the roof of your mouth.
  3. Exhale and sub-vocally (heard only internally) say SHHHHH. You may want to orally practice this sound for a while. The sound is like HUSH.
  4. Repeat this technique at least four times. You may do it as many times as you wish but in multiples of three. You are ventilating the toxicity in your liver so the more you practice the greater the results. Practice it also during times of anger and stress.

Smiling energy

Each organ has an associated colour. The colour for the liver is bright dark green akin to emerald green. We will use two things to impact the liver-the smile-down and healing light.

  • Think of an event in your past that was the funniest thing you've ever experienced. Just thinking about this event causes you to laugh. This is the smiling energy you'll use to help your liver.
  • After doing the above, stand and walk around for a while. As you are walking, use your hands and your thoughts to move the energy from your liver into your naval area.
  • Deep Breathing Relaxation is an important step towards healing. The simplicity of deep breathing makes this process easier. Inhale through the nose and draw as much air as possible. Once the lungs are completely filled, hold the lungs full for a count of five. After a count of five, exhale from the very bottom of your lungs through your mouth. Do this three times. To start, this breathing should be done three times daily with an increasing count
  • Massage Massage therapy, especially Rolfing (a deep muscular massage) is a terrific method to cleanse the muscle and connective tissue where our 'toxic' issues are stored. Additionally, start a regimen of walking for short distances with distances increasing as strength returns

Anger Management Tips

Control your temper

Out of control yelling and bad behaviour is actually a childish temper tantrum and it is not necessary to put up with it. Leave on the spot. If you’re at home, go to another room or take a walk. If you're dining out, take a taxi, leave money for the bill if there is one, but get out of there. It doesn't matter how important the occasion is; it's ruined anyway. Once the person realizes you're not going to put up with bad behaviour, he or she will hopefully understand it is unacceptable and change it.

On the other hand, the person who loses his or her temper looks like the bad guy to everyone else, no matter who started the problem or who is really at fault.

Rewinding the Tape

To get better at controlling your anger, visualise a scene where you got angry and replay the tape several times, to get a clear picture of yourself responding in different ways. When you do this, you are actually rehearsing different reactions and giving yourself new options. Imagine a previous angry situation as if it’s occurring now. Get as clear a picture of the scene as possible, imagining what people are wearing, what the room looks like etc.

Because this scene didn’t go well originally, consider what you'd like to change about what you're doing. Remember, you can't control the others in the scene, but you can get them to respond differently by giving them something different to respond to. Rewind and replay this mental image, trying new ways to handle it until you are successful, i.e., you handle the situation without losing your temper.

Play the tape a few more times, with this successful process and outcome, until you feel confident you can do and say what you are visualising.

Learn to trust yourself

Put your full trust in yourself by following your intuition and doing your best and then move forward one step at a time with faith and confidence in the future. Life will not forsake you. Love, persistence and hard work combined rarely lead a person astray in the long run. If you have faith in your abilities, if you stay true to the path that feels right, if you channel your passion into action, you will ultimately achieve a breakthrough. In other words, as soon as you trust yourself you will know how to heal and grow.

Focus on what you’re learning

Mistakes and setbacks are simply a form of practice. If the road is easy and free of bumps, you’re likely going the wrong way. The bumps in the road teach you what you need to know to progress down a path that is all your own. Sometimes things have to go wrong in order to go right.

Ease your expectations

Life is under no obligation to give you exactly what you expect. Whatever you’re seeking, will rarely ever come in the form you’re expecting. You must see and accept things as they are instead of as you hoped, wished, or expected them to be. Just because it didn’t turn out like you had envisioned, doesn’t mean it isn’t exactly what you need to get to where you ultimately want to go.

Open up to someone you trust

No matter how bizarre or embarrassed or pathetic you feel about your own situation, there is someone in your life who has dealt with similar emotions and who may help you. Don’t expect him to solve your problems; just allow him to face your problems with you. Give him permission to stand beside you. He may not necessarily be able to pull you out of the dark, but the light that spills in when he enters, will at least show you which way the door is.

Use hope to drive positive action

Hope empowers you to strive and grow even when your circumstances are in shambles. The road that is built with hope is more pleasant than the road built in despair, even though they both may seem to lead you to the same place. The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope as you work for what you want. Get deeply involved with the thoughts and activities that keep your hope alive and your intention possible.

Move TOWARDS something instead of AWAY

When you concentrate on not thinking about something, you end up thinking about it. Similarly, by persistently trying to move away from what you don’t want, you are forced to think about it. But if you instead choose to focus your energy on moving toward something you do want, you naturally leave the negative weight behind as you progress forward.

Take a few steps back

Everything seems simpler from a distance. Sometimes you simply need to distance yourself to see things more clearly. Take a few steps back and give yourself the benefit of this distance and then give yourself some great advice. Think of the most difficult challenge you face right now. Imagine that it’s not you, but a close friend who is facing this challenge. What advice would you give him? Think of the advice you would give your friend if your friend were in your shoes.
