Why you mad?

April 09, 2018

Anger is poison in the body, mind, and heart. Grief, hatred, resentment, fear, jealousy... these are all bad for our health and can manifest into a plethora of issues. Some examples of how anger can manifest in the physical body include heart burn, digestive issues, eczema, chronic inflammation, pain, and dare I say it, even cancer. 

Anger also blocks the flow of abundance and joy from our lives. When we remain joyful, our whole life is a celebration. The Universe draws to you what you are feeling and being. Think and feel angry thoughts, the Universe brings you more things to be angry about. Think and feel joyful thoughts, the Universe brings in more joy. It's quite simple. 

In honor of Aries season, the SOfit community and I have been discussing anger, our relationship and history with it, how our parents expressed anger, how they set the example around how to deal with anger, and more. Below are a few of the journaling questions we have worked with last week.  

Let's do the work
grab your journal
  1. What makes you angry?
  2. Who makes you angry?
  3. Who/what are you still angry with from your past?
  4. What triggers you on the regular, on the daily?
  5. How do you react or respond when you get angry?
  6. When did your parents get angry with you?
  7. How did your parents express their anger towards you?
  8. How did you respond to their anger with you?
  9. What would you like to release from your body and psyche?
  10. What are some action steps you can take TODAY to break the cycle?

I came into 2018 reeeeallly ready to dig deeper into my anger and resentment work because I know that letting go of these lingering resentments are the key to bringing more abundance and joy into my life. I start every morning with a meditation where I release all anger and resentment towards others and myself - before I even get out of bed. I end every evening laying down to sleep, and imagine a golden light washing over me. I release all anger and resentment I may have felt throughout the day and send all energy that is not mine back to where it belongs. I fall asleep as I call my power back to me and let go of the day. Sometimes I pray, repeat mantras, or simply breathe in feelings of love.

Obviously I am a very physical and action oriented person, so I also make sure I get all the grumbles out of my body through self expression such as dancing, journaling, having necessary conversations, communicating my feelings and needs, working out, teaching SOfierce, and practicing all the ways of self care (bc self love). This includes cooking my own meals, daily skincare, seeing healers, and reaching out to people to hold space for me while I rant and rave that kimchee fire out of my system... I got a lot of it, lol :)

What about you? What are you still mad about? Are you ready to let go? What are you going to do about it?
