Anger And Ascension
There will be times during this intense transformational process that we will be feeling intense emotions. One of those emotions is anger. My suggestion to you is not to go mental and try to figure out why you are angry. There could be so many reasons for it but really it doesn’t matter. Because as soon as you try to figure it out, you’re right back into your head and out of your feelings. And it is a clever way for the mind to suppress the feeling of anger because it is a scary feeling.
Especially for those who were taught that it is not polite to be angry. So, your best bet when the feeling comes up is to find a way to express it in a safe way, so you don’t hurt yourself or anyone else.
You can pound a pillow, or if you feel comfortable say a few curse words, wave your fists around, yell, whatever you need to do.
You may be feeling stuck, like you’ve had enough of this reality and things just don’t seem to be moving fast enough, or it may be old stuck energy from the past. Whatever the reason for the anger, it is much healthier to express it than try to suppress it. It is part of the releasing process. It is better to be angry and move energy rather than to sit there listless and hopeless. Someone very wise said that an ascending master is a pissed off master. In other words, this process of ascension can tear us apart on so many levels and it can feel as if you’re at the end of your rope. It takes so much courage and fortitude to take this path. To walk through it with a smile on our face well, I would say that is virtually impossible. Oh, we will be smiling later on but right now it is imperative that we allow ourselves all the feelings, especially the ones of irritation.
Now, it is also important to know that we are not those feelings. Not to over identify with them. Just express and feel them. Whether it is sadness, in which case I find that a good cry is very cleansing. And when the anger comes up I do not judge it like I used to and it dissipates much more quickly. By allowing these feelings we are giving them the benefit of our love. But I also would say that it is not wise to take action on these feelings. In other words, if you are feeling angry, it would be tempting to project it onto someone else and then unload on them, or quit your job or any number of other actions. It is wise to take action when we are in a balanced place. Taking action from a place of lack, which includes anger and sadness, will only produce unsatisfying results.
Emotions are energy in motion. Let the energies keep moving. You will find that as you allow these feelings to come and go, you will feel much more balanced and this transformational process will go so much easier.
