I’ve been dealing with a lot of anger and rage lately. That surprises me because I don’t see myself as an angry woman. Yet I’ve been highly reactive on several occasions lately.
I’m experiencing transitions as I start a new business and work with new clients. Transitions can be stressful if I choose to think that there is only one way to experience them. I will experience stress if I start to judge myself for failing.
I also have consciously chosen to clear old patterns and beliefs that no longer serve my higher vision. I realize that as I’ve done that my subconscious mind is bringing me into situations that would trigger anger and rage. You see, I was raised to be a good Christian woman and good Christian women don’t get angry, right?
However suppressing my anger and rage has caused me to experience depression and anxiety. Staying depressed and anxious certainly hinders me from manifesting my calling to serve women. The result of my conscious decision is that I experience situations that trigger my anger and rage.
I’m discovering that rage is a powerful emotion that will serve me if I first accept my feelings and shift its intensity. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is my major tool to shift my rage and become calm enough to make constructive decisions about handling the triggering situation.
Recently I experienced rage with a friend online. She commented on my post about feeling triggered because of my past experience with fundamentalist Christianity. I felt that her response was coming from the arrogant “let me fix you” perspective. Unfortunately she hit on one of my major issues with the fundamentalist world.
I tapped (practiced EFT) on my feelings about the situation. I accepted my feelings towards her without judgment. I’m learning that there are no bad feelings; emotions are simply energy in motion. After tapping for awhile, I became calm and relaxed.
I spoke my truth and expressed my feelings about her comment. I started by thanking her for acknowledging my pain. I reflected that I found her comments to be arrogant and explained my feelings. I shared that I recognized that I have past wounds with fundamentalist Christianity but that I’ve chosen to use Emotional Freedom Technique as my primary practice to clear what’s in my cellular memory.
This interaction is a major shift in handling challenging relationships for me. Up until now, I would either acquiesce or remain silent but filled with rage. But in December I set the intention to be courageous love and roar.
Isn’t that amazing! I set the intention of the feeling I wanted to experience in my body. Two months later, I’m experiencing that intention with ease.
Would it be okay to ask if there are intentions that you made at the beginning of the year? How are you doing in manifesting them? Do you want to shift the patterns & beliefs that hold you back from your desires?
