Releasing Anger

While anger can be righteous and sometimes motivating, most of the time it just gums up the works.Anger causes our blood pressure to rise,  clenches up the body and leaves a bad residue.
So today, we are going to work on releasing that residue.

Go into your mind and release any anger you have stored there.  You may think you don't have any but if you start to look you will find it.  It may be a time you took offense,  or things did not go the way you thought they would. 

It is as if there are little birds flying around in circles, trapped, around and around in your mind.  Release them!  And they will fly away so fast, so glad to be free.  You will feel better.  Do this a number of times until you are empty of these constructs.

Go into your chest and feel the tension of leftover anger there. Breathe and release the anger on the outflow.

Release the tension from your heart, letting the last bit flow down your fingertips.  Release anger from your belly, your gut, from the base of your spine.

And finally, go into your spine, starting at the base and feel that last bit of stored resentment.  Release the tension and let it pop out through the chakras in front of your body. Work your way up each vertebrae, find the holding part and release. Through your second chakra in the belly, through the solar plexus in the middle of your body,  through the heart, the chest, the throat and finally back to the center of your forehead.

What a great cleansing!  It is really releasing judgment towards everyone and everything.

Feeling so light and empty now.  Try to keep this stance throughout your day.  You can be discerning, you can observe.  Watch when you go into judgement,  see how your body clenches up.  Let it go when you feel it.  It is often an unnecessary reaction.

What will you have more room for, I wonder?  Calmness, delight,  clear seeing?

Breathe again now and feel the space in your body filled with relief, appreciation and compassion for yourself and others.  Namaste.
