Discover how anger can be used as a tool for deeper spiritual awareness and transformation.
Learn how to quickly stop yourself from getting angry.
Throughout the day we often experience either our own anger or the anger of others. One of the ways in which we can uncouple from the energy of anger is to ask ‘What is the purpose?”
When you ask this of yourself or another, it helps to disconnect the mental body (ego) which is causing the anger and brings our spiritual awareness into the present moment. Now you may be thinking, “Why would you ask that?” or “What do you mean?”
Often anger happens when ‘what is’ and what ‘we want’ are not aligned. We can get so wound up by our thoughts about what should have happened and what isn’t happening, that the mind begins to create such a toxic story at such a fast rate, it builds up an excess of energy, like steam in a pressure cooker and before we know it, it erupts.
By asking the question “What is the purpose of my anger?”, it enables us to quickly balance our energies, bring us to a deeper connection with self, so we can have a deeper spiritual awareness of what is really going on.
One of the most important spiritual lessons we can learn, is to be fully aware of what is unfolding within us. You see, we often claim we are not connected with spirit, our angels, our guides and loved ones. We often believe they have abandoned us, but in reality, in order to have a deeper connection with spirit, we need to be fully present in the energy of the moment to maintain our connection.
When we are doing something simple, be it, washing pots, or ironing, we are often focused on the end result, getting things cleared away. We can get angry and resentful that we have these tasks to do because it is something we have to continually do throughout our lives. Yet, in these small tasks, we can, if we are fully aware, see them as a perfect opportunity for being fully present with our guides, angels and loved ones in spirit.
In the past when I have been to Spiritualist churches, some excellent platform mediums have talked about sitting in the power. I must admit I wasn’t really sure what they meant by that in the beginning. 25 years later lol, I too, now speak about sitting in the power. Sitting in the power, is about being fully immersed without thought in the moment. Meditation is about disconnecting from the mental body (ego) and allowing our soul awareness to be fully present.
Anger is often a distraction, it is used to direct energy from being wrong, being seen as stupid or invalidated, and it is a way of getting people to see the angry person, in their eyes, as important. Anger is also a tool that many use to manipulate others into doing something. When we complain, we distort our energies. When we get angry we distort and stress our energies.
The purpose of anger is an attempt to change what is, into alignment with what the ego desires. Yet, does anger really help us achieve the right reaction from others that we want and would like? Anger either represses another or challenges another to retaliate. Neither outcome is going to help us achieve balance. When we stress our energies through anger, it is akin to putting emergency energy metal shutters around us, thereby disconnecting us from our own soul, others and spirit.
Anyone who knows me in my formative years would attest to the fact that I was an angry person. I could go from zero to 100% anger in less than a second. Looking back, ah yes, the luxury of reflection, I can now see and understand so vividly, the futility of anger and how it never helps us achieve the desired effect, it merely blocks our spiritual awareness and our soul’s growth.
Learning to ask “What is the purpose of my anger?” has helped me realise the futility of it. It has helped me to remain present, thereby allowing spirit to lead me and support me in what is unfolding in that moment. With presence comes a deepening of soul connection. With stillness and silence, the energy of ‘being’ transports what could have been a stressful, angry situation into an energy that flows in cooperation where accomplishment is achieved simply and quickly.
Learning to let go of our anger, is a major spiritual lesson the soul chooses to take. Being free of anger doesn’t mean becoming a doormat. It helps to foster a deeper connection with others, peace and love. So guys, the next time you experience anger either within you or from an external force. If you want to develop a deeper spiritual awareness, take a moment to ask of yourself or another, “What is the purpose of anger and how is it serving you in helping you to achieve what you want?
“Your life isn’t about a big break.
It’s about taking one significant life-transforming step at a time.”
