I've really experienced the creative force of anger lately.
Anger is a strong creative energy when we know how to channel it in the correct way. Its interesting, as while I was growing up, I saw anger in the form of uncontrollable rage.. and internalized the story: 'Anger = Bad'
For most of my life, I've avoided being angry
(unless of course it all came bubbling out).
Avoid, suppress, resist, pretend, hide...
We do some many of these things with our emotions...
Imagine this as a possibility...
ANGER = CREATIVE ENERGY
I've been learning how to use it in new ways lately..
To feel it... Yes. And also to channel it into creative expression.
PS - ALL EMOTIONS ARE A GIFT. It's only when we're resisting whats there that we feel suffering around our emotions.
Take this morning for an example:
First 10 minutes:
ANGRY + resisting the anger = Disempowered space
10 Minutes Later:
Still ANGRY + EMBRACING/CHOOSING my anger = massively empowered space (and VERY different outcome... cool things got created)
...a fundamental, core, primal, stunning bloody shift in how I felt and experienced that moment... AND it didnt take 'making myself not angry'... it took CHOOSING the anger.. and in that choosing... shifting into a space of empowerment.
Resistance of something, is a lower vibration of that something that we're resisting. So resistance of anything, causes a lower vibration and hence disempowerment. In the moment of choosing, we immediately up our vibration...even when it's choosing anger, or choosing sadness. That choosing opens up the space, and from there...a knock on affect occurs in the direction of more empowerment.
