Reduce the Flames of Anger with Energy Medicine
We all know what it feels like to be angry. It does not feel good. That is because the qualities of anger are destructive. Anger is an emotion that feels hot, urgent, blinding, and destructive; much like a fire. These are some of the characteristics of anger that give it its particular energy, and why it feels different from other emotions such as fear, joy, surprise, or disgust. In general terms, the energy of emotions either expand us or they collapse us.
If we pay attention, we can connect with the qualities of any emotions that is destructive and reduce the intensity or alter the characteristics using Energy Medicine.
Anger Alters The Brain
When we are angry it is difficult, if not impossible to think clearly. The energetic and physiological response that accompanies anger results in 85% of the blood in the pre-frontal cortex draining from this area of the brain in order to support a fight/flight/freeze response. The brain cannot access the area of the brain in which higher levels of thinking, judgment or creativity reside.
An simple yet effective tool used in Energy Medicine to reduce anger is called the Crown Pull. This is a very effective, soothing and simple exercise that encourages blood and energy back into the pre-frontal cortex area of the brain and reduces the intensity of anger.
