A question from one of our readers: “Very often I feel angry with other people and blame them for my misery, even though I know it’s not their fault. How can I stop this behaviour?” Read the answer in this blog post.
First of all, we want to thank you for writing to us with such an important topic as many people strugglw with this issue.
Many of us get angry for seemingly no reason, we fly of the handle and literally spew our anger over those around us.
Have you ever stopped and inquired why?
For many of us anger is a cover, a defence for some deeper feeling that we don’t want to admit to, experience or expose to others.
If you are feeling angry, take a moment and stop
- Close your eyes, breathe deeply.
- Ask what is deeper than this anger? If this anger were a cover for something else what would that be?
- And like a blanket peel back this layer of anger and notice what is revealed to be here…
- Keep asking what’s deeper than this until you are resting in an expansive, experience of source.
For some people peeling back emotional layers is really easy. But for others of us, who have maybe numbed their emotions for a long time, it may be more difficult.
What if I don’t feel my emotions?
If you don’t reach an expansive, wholesome state on your first attempt, relax! Society teaches us to suppress our emotions, so your body is simply not used to feeling, and wants to keep a lid on your emotions, all your emotions!
Start with daily short meditations to develop a better connection with your body. Your body already knows and will reveal all your emotions when it’s ready.
