Newsletter April 2018
While reflecting on a topic for the April newsletter I of course thought of Spring, and spring cleaning, and essences such as Detox and Purifying, but then my thoughts turned to traditional Chinese medicine where Spring is represented by the wood element. The wood element is composed of the liver and gall bladder meridians (so this follows on the spring cleaning theme) but what caught my attention was the emotion of the wood element - anger.
Some think that anger is a toxic emotion that should be banished at all costs, but it is actually a healthy emotion if handled correctly and not repressed. Anger is a way of responding to stressful situations, venting frustration, or reacting to injustice. It is how we treat our anger that determines whether it is good or bad.
Some people rarely express anger, suppressing it and pretending that everything is always ok. Others express their anger in an explosive manner which can be frightening and even harmful to themselves and others. If you grew up in a family where anger was treated in either of these ways you may consider anger as bad and to be avoided at all costs. Shutting off our feelings of anger, repressing them as a way of feeling safe, can actually be harmful.
We need to accept our anger rather than run from it. By looking at our anger, and the reasons for it, it will begin to dissolve and find productive ways to vent its energy. One interesting thing about anger is that we are rarely angry for the reasons we think. Getting angry at someone or something is often the reflection of our past, including unacknowledged or unhealed wounds from childhood. Anger can be a statement of how we feel about ourselves such as a situation which makes us feel helpless or vulnerable. And of course, anger is intimately linked to forgiveness. Holding on to our anger, frustration, and resentment hurts us more than it does others.
Here are some of the essences that can help you address your anger issues.
