Dealing With Emotions Part Two

All emotion must be experienced in order to be understood. The reason all of us incarnate is so we can understand all things. Therefore we must experience all emotion through our many lifetimes.

There are no negative emotions. It is not the emotion that is the problem; it is how we perceive it and then how we deal with it that is the key.

Take anger for example (as addressed below by The Council of 12). Anger is a normal emotion. It is one all egos on the planet will experience (while we are here we all have egos. It is part of the human condition).

Anger is simply an ego reaction that needs an appropriate way of being expressed, and our lesson is simply to express it, learn from it and let it go.

Some writers and teachers - particularly those of eastern background - speak of emotions such as anger as a sign of weakness. They miss the point of life on the planet. In certain situations, anger is a normal reaction and it needs to be expressed in an appropriate, healthy manner.

Anger that is not dealt with accumulates and becomes loaded and explosive. This is damaging and unhealthy to the person experiencing the anger and those around them. Volatile, accumulated anger that is not dealt with can - and does - create problems.

My advice to you is this: don’t block your anger. If you can recognise the source of your anger, express it properly. Write a letter directed to the person or situation concerned and then burn it. Repeat the process again and again if necessary. Or go into nature and scream if you feel so inclined (be careful no one is about!). Alternatively, if you can't recognise the source, get some help to find the origin of your anger. Regression therapy can be of tremendous benefit.

Try to see if you can look at the situation from a different perspective - from the other person's view point. But remember, you will first need to have released a good portion of the accumulated anger though ways mentioned above before you can genuinely achieve this.

Welcome to the planet. Live life, embrace what you are and set about changing the aspects of yourself that no longer serve you.

Happy travelling,
