How Anger Hurts You

How Anger Hurts You

In a healthy body, the flow of healthy energy is perfectly regulated synchronistically. Healthy people are firmly locked into these rhythms. When disease occurs, one of those rhythms has gone awry. Stress is the biggest disrupter. If you’re stressed, if you’re feeling hostility, your body’s balance gets thrown off. Stress breaks our non-local connection with everything else. When you are experiencing disease (“dis-ease”), then some part of your body is beginning to get constricted. It is tuning itself out from the non-local field of intelligence.

There are many emotions that can cause a disruption of the electromagnetic field in the heart, but the ones that have been most precisely documented are anger and hostility. Once this synchronization is disrupted, your body starts to behave in a fragmented manner. The immune system gets suppressed, which leads to other problems, such as increased susceptibility to cancer, infections and accelerated aging. This effect is so strong that animals can pick it up. If a dog sees a person who is harboring hostility, it will bark and act ferocious. Wherever you go, you are broadcasting who you are at this very intimate level.

Not easy to admit, but I get angry at selfish, self centered people, child and animal abusers. I call them every swear word in the book, out loud, usually in the privacy of my own home or my car.. I feel better after releasing what would be pent up inside.. I think the repressing your feelings causes more stress on the body, therefore, more disease. I'm living proof, 64 years old, never had a surgery (except wisdom teeth), or a diagnosed disease in my entire life.

Anger is in itself a natural and potentially healthy emotion and it is a mistake to overlook this and always try to suppress it. Jesus was angry when he threw the moneylenders out of the temple and so anger in itself is not the problem.While anger usually manifests destructively and this sort of anger is a problem it is still incorrect to say that all anger is destructive.

It's always great when my 'flare' of agitation flips to 'jubilation' and I find laughter to sail me through the torrid seas of life. For sure, there are times when the waters are not calm and soothing. Sometimes it's okay to let the juices of life flow, just remember not to get cooked in the bubbling brew,... [best not let the heat do harm to another either!] However, it has dawned on me as my years incline, that the juice of the moment simmers into a divine nectar upon meditation and prayer of my concern. It's all spiritual matter, and no matter how physical our stuff appears, this too shall pass and the pure essence of Spirit heals us all.

The baptism of the soul.

If people weren'r meant to get angry, they wouldn't. It's okay to be angry, but people are told it's bad so they hide it and bury it deep where it festers into rage. I just got out of a really bad relationship, I get angry when I think of it, so what I do it find ways to release it. My recent attempt was taking a painting she did for me, craved some mean words into it, scratched it up with a dart, box cutter and knife, used it as a base to light and explode fireworks off of during the 4th of July, and then burned it. It felt good. Some might call it petty, but it really felt good to write rude comments in her art books, diary entries in said books, and nude photos of herself, using a black sharpie. It felt good to release that anger because I have every right to be angry. She lied so much I don't even know what to believe, manipulated me, isolated me from my friends and family, undermined my feelings, did things behind me back, cheated on me and in the end, left because I wasn't paying her bills anymore and abondoned her son because she ever really loved or cared about him. Yeah, I'm angry but in the end, her lies caught up, all her bad karma caught up, and I am victorious because she is not allowed to see my son (she may have birthed him, but I'm his Mama, she was just an incubator), all her friends like me better and trust me more and I have all her stuff. She can kiss my ass.

Perhaps a simple explanation of why every dam thing's a war on something ... or why differences are allowed to grow,split and divide without thought and discussion, or burial if that's not possible. Life's too short, move on.

I can be annoyed because of someone's selfish behaviour - but when I speak to them I chose not to lose my head and express loud anger.
Perhaps it's because I hold a picture in my mind of how ridiculous people look when thy lose control and shout in anger ..... "Would you do that again in front of a mirror?"
