4 Steps to Integrating Your Anger

In our most recent Again & Again podcast, one of things we discussed is anger, and how it can affect the Dark Night of the Soul. For me personally, anger has been one of the most challenging emotions to learn how to integrate. There are many books and resources out there for facing fears and understanding sadness, but the books on anger tend to focus on managing it, not healing it. I choose to look at ways in which I can integrate my anger, so that it can be used constructively, and not destructively.

Anger contains powerful information, it can help us learn more about our past life patterns, and our Soul Mission, but only if we approach anger with mindful awareness. That can be a challenge itself, because our social norms do not have a place for anger, and that is why we have so much anger exploding around us in road rage, political arguments, and workplace tensions. We as a humanity are not properly taught how to process our anger, and therefore we tend to stuff it down deep inside of us. Unfortunately, all that does is turn us into a dormant volcano, just waiting for the right phrase or word for the angry lava to spew out of us.

Step 1 in integrating anger is to accept that you, me, and everyone else holds onto anger. We all have it! There is no way around it. To deny the existence of your anger is the most dangerous thing you can do. Without accepting that you have the ability to be angry, you will never be able to recognize it in those pre-eruption moments, before it becomes a guiding force for your actions.

Step 2 is to learn what your specific pre-eruption moments look like. Do you have an increase in heartbeat? Does your neck vein throb? Do your cheeks get flush? Do you shake? Do you feel like wanting to run away from the situation in front of you? What are your signs of imminent eruption? By arming yourself with awareness, and understanding of what to look for, you can begin to spot your anger at earlier and earlier stages. Eventually, you will be able to spot your anger when it is at the stage of annoyance, like a mosquito buzzing around your ears when you are trying to fall asleep. It is at the annoyance stage, when anger is best suited for integration into your energy body system.

Step 3 is to talk with your anger. Discover what it and your Ego are trying to tell you. Perhaps, it feels disrespected, or is upset it cannot be in control of a situation. Ask your anger, “What prompted this feeling?” and dig deeper to find out what energy is the root cause of the anger. It is from past life experiences, or from early on in this lifetime? What were the details of the situations that connect to the anger? Dig as deep as you can, until the answers stop flowing. Write all this down and journal on it if you can, often this will lead to further insights along the way.

Step 4 is integration. Learning the details that created your anger is how you integrate it. For example, you have a past life where you were persecuted for your belief system. Let’s work with that example to show you how you can integrate your anger into your life now. This root cause of the anger will have you feeling reactive to situations where you are facing others who have beliefs at odds to your own. This has potential to show up in many life areas, not just politics and religion. Look to health, diet, career choices, how you raise your children, or any other important life factors connected with how you define yourself. In that self-identification you have reinforced your own belief system, and your anger wants you to defend it. Therefore, if someone says something that your Ego sees as being a judgement or dig at your belief system, that will be transferred to your Ego believing that the other person is in judgment of you. Integration comes from seeing that the past life judgment is directly connected to how you expect judgment to appear in your life now. You might say to yourself on a mental level that you are not in a state of expecting judgments, however the emotional expectation of judgment is certainly there, or you would never have felt angry in this type of situation. Starting with your root causes of anger and connecting them to your state of mind now is the integration process.

Imagine each detail of past and present lifetimes is a thread in a giant blanket. The blanket is so large it is nearly smothering you under the weight of it all. So, now you go along and start pulling out the threads you no longer need, shrinking the blanket to just the right size and right the right thickness for your life. The discarded threads of anger (or other emotions too), are now singled out, and you can examine them further and discover connections and overlaps you were unaware of before. Once you see how the past life threads have formed the fabric of the present, then you have started to integrate the anger. The more of these past life threads you identify, the more emotion you will also integrate. Plus, the blanket left behind is further focused and refined to fit your Soul Mission precisely, with no extra information to cloud your focus.

Take some time today and reflect upon your anger, go through the steps above slowly and completely. Do this exercise often to reveal more and more of those threads, pluck them out and understand why they were there in the first place. Each time you integrate more of your anger, you are removing the extra weight of emotions you no longer need, and left behind is the pure focus of how to put your past and present life experience into action as your Soul Mission.

What Causes a Chakra to be Split?

When a chakra is split into 2 or more portions it is a big sign of past trauma. That trauma can be either from past life experiences, or from earlier on in this life. A split chakra will always have one main portion that points in the proper direction, and this main portion will always be the largest. This is because it is very slowly, over time, working to absorb back the other split-off portions. But, when left on its own, this process is very slow. This is because as long as the subconscious memories of the trauma are still present in the etheric body, the rate of absorption will stay at less than 1% per year.

However, once the memory of the trauma is removed and healed, then it becomes quite easy to restore the chakra to its proper shape. There are many ways to remove the trauma, including energy healing, chakra clearing, yoga, tai chi, color therapy, and talking through the trauma for purposes of releasing the energy. If the trauma is too great to release, this is one reason why a person’s Higher Self may not be ready to have the full removal that comes with a chakra clearing or energy healing. Talking through the energy can help the person to be prepared to release traumas, as can sending the energy of unconditional love to the individual. The other methods listed provide for a slower and gentler release, but still are quite effective for self-healing, as they assist the chakras to heal themselves at a faster rate than what the body would normally.

The split-off portions of the chakra can travel in any direction, except they are never parallel to the main portion. While the main portion of the chakra looks very smooth and filled with colorful light, the split-off portions look more like gnarled tree roots. The difference in appearance is due to the chakra pulling its energy flow from the split-off portions, so the outsides of the split-off portions dry up. One of the steps involved in restoring a split chakra is to soften up these portions, so that they become more flexible. This flexibility is required before the split-off portions can have their direction altered to match the main portion.

When a person is nearly done with restoring the split chakra, that chakra appears more like the spiral of a mythical unicorn horn. This occurs because the two or more portions are twisting and wrapping around each other. In order to fully harmonize and incorporate all the portions back together, they must all have the same spin speed and direction first.

Split chakras do not occur in everyone, but so far, I have seen them about 50% of the time in the chakra clearings. I have not yet seen more than one split chakra per person, however I am certain that it is possible to have multiple chakras that are split. If you have split chakra, you may not even notice it physically. You will notice it in your emotional state, because the split chakra is very much connected to a repressed emotion or memory that is simply too challenging to face. But, the good news is that once you are ready to release the suppressed energy, then a chakra clearing, or similar energy healing, can really do wonders for you, and help you release the energy for good.

Split chakras normally will have some side effects in the 5 or so days following the chakra clearing. It is because the repressed energy and emotion was popped out and released, and often the body will have a physical response of some kind to assist in this. Side effects depend on which chakra was split, and can include: headaches, dizziness, stuffy nose, earaches, sore throat, coughing, digestive distress, crying, and vivid dreams. Thankfully though, the body does not need to feel the exact emotion again, and really when you think about it, a few days of headaches to release lifetimes of trauma is a pretty good trade off!
