Dealing with Anger in a Welcoming Way!

Is Dealing With Anger in a Welcoming Way Possible?

How lucky we are to get to deal with anger in a loving, respectful and welcoming way!

Not exactly what you would expect to hear from a Spiritually Guided Coach.   But I’m here to tell you that you should not discount ANGER and what it can actually do, to bring you closer to your heart and your Spirit.  We ALL experience ALL of the emotions (including dealing with anger) and feelings that come with being human.

It is how we respond to these emotions that really create our outcomes though.  If you have the desire to feel less anger in your life and decide that you would like to start to work with this emotion rather than be “run” by it, you can start the change – right now actually.

Just set the intention, right now, that when you are dealing with anger and the anger arises within you, that you will notice it for what it is, accept it without judgment and be with it without speaking or “doing”.  Just sit with it – kind of like a “time out”.  For this to actually work, you must actually do it and COMMIT to this intention you are setting.

That is not a normal response to dealing with anger therefore it does take determination.

When you CHOOSE to start working with it though, by consciously setting the intention to pay attention and give it your time and consideration, you will start to see that will show up less and less in your space.

Often times when we feel angry we either respond from a completely unconscious place, like lashing out, using physical gestures, screaming or completely closing ourselves.  If not those things, we may suppress our anger by pushing it down, pushing it away, until, like a volcano, one day it erupts with a fury!

The deal is that it should be accepted as part of our being human. Anger is caused by feeling hurt or sad or defensive and it’s a secondary emotion.  When you find yourself dealing with anger, there is a disconnect with LOVE.  Always, even though it may appear to have to do with someone else, it is a disconnect with LOVE for yourself.

That is why anger can actually be good if we commit to the choice of being aware and consciously bringing yourself to a place of just being with it.  It is in this space that we accept and love ourselves completely, wholly and without condition.  We notice we are angry, we don’t reprimand ourselves for being angry and it is here that we can get to the root of why it’s come up in the first place.

If you are really honest with yourself, you can almost always trace the cause of the anger back to you.  Are you choosing people and situations in your life that are not serving your highest good?  Are you putting yourself in an environment that is not serving your highest good?  Are you self loathing in a way that your environment manifests your beliefs about yourself and life?

You truly are more powerful than you could ever imagine and truly are the creator of your own world.  Giving yourself the time in these moments of HIGH VELOCITY emotion, is a great gift and one of the best  ways to really connect to your God Self.  The essence of who you truly are.

Dealing with anger is way more productive when you aren’t being consumed by it!

We all are in this together, because at our finest level, we all are really ONE anyway.  Having said that, sometimes going through these really tough times and dealing with our emotions are hard to do on our own.  There are many places you can go for support.  You can seek out a Coach or a Mentor to help guide you to your own answers.  Perhaps counseling might be what you need.  Or you just simply may want to find a place to come, to get questions answered, to bounce things off of other like minded individuals or just to get that little extra inspiration you may need to get you through that part of your day.

GOD SPEED! ~ You Be Right, I’ll Be Happy

Posted by on Jul 11, 2011 in General, Happiness, Positive Thinking, Relationships, Self Help, Self Love, Spirituality | 0 comments

GOD SPEED! ~ You Be Right, I’ll Be Happy

That coined phrase seems to re-occur often in my coaching.   Seems us humans are so invested in being “right” that we will use our entire energy supply trying to make someone else acknowledge our way of thinking.

It’s like beating your head against a wall – time and time again, because the other person is usually invested in convincing YOU that THEY are “right” as well. And so it goes…..

When should a person say, “you know what?….go ahead and be “right”, I’m going to go be happy!”?  We have no idea what others “human experience” agenda’s are, so why are we arrogant enough to want to change them, to seemingly make our own ideas and beliefs about life “right”?

The answer to the above questions would be, whenever it is you are ready to BE HAPPY!

Sure, you can share your perceptions about what is appropriate behavior for YOU, and what you feel is okay to have in YOUR “space”, but beyond that….Quit trying to change other people. If what they are doing, or not doing, saying, or not saying isn’t feeling good to you, than say to them “GOD SPEED! – Go live your life the way you see fit, make your bed and then lay in it, I’ll do the same, however, it just isn’t going to work for me to have you in my space anymore”.

The problem most people face is that they don’t want to have to give up anything… not their perceived comforts, their perceived friendships and most of all their NEED TO BE “RIGHT”!  There’s a feeling of “by God, if I have to tow the line, they better do the same!”, rather than just letting them be and then living in accordance with what makes them feel good.

It’s ironic that we cling so tightly to the illusion of what we think we have, or want to have, rather than WHAT we actually do have.

I have to admit, this comes up for me in my coaching.  Especially with people who I’m close to.  I need to practice what I preach. I sometimes get so invested in wanting people to love themselves at the level they need to in order to experience freedom, happiness and joy – all of which awaits them, that I sometimes feel the need to be “right” and I hang on so tight to giving all that I’ve got, that I end up depleted.  How’s that for the whole “mirroring” affect.  I want to help people “be happy” but ultimately I can only offer tools and different perspectives to help.  To be happy, is their choice.

I know that I need to give all I got, with love in my heart and then not be attached to the outcome.  Also, to give freely the tools and insights to help someone choose to become empowered, but then release attachment to how they use them.  At the end of the day, we all have to CHOOSE to love our-selves enough to let go. We have to find the courage to say “GOD SPEED” to people and things in our lives that are not in alignment with what we want to see for ourselves.  It’s a challenge to stay out of judgment of those things that we “let go” of and stay centered in our own consciousness when it comes to being connected to our Source. That’s the space where life becomes easy, joyful and feels effortless.

Thanks for letting me share!  This blog literally flowed effortlessly out of me, as my own experience of this has been presenting itself and mirroring back to me.  I know this is yet another opportunity to “let go” and unfold even deeper into the greatest expression of myself!

I love life!  I love my relationships because they teach me so much about myself.  I’m forever grateful for the absolute knowing of the Source that flows through me…that IS me. My heart swells with expansion and gratitude!

Blessings to all of you out there and….. “GOD SPEED” and BE HAPPY!!

Namaste!

WHAT AM I?

Posted by on Jun 22, 2011 in General, Happiness, Positive Thinking, Science, Self Help, Spirituality | 0 comments

Such a common question one asks themselves when trying to define or find a label for their perceived description of themselves. Really the question should be “WHO Am I”? because WHAT we ARE is Divine Light/Pure Source and nothing more – that’s it – “all she wrote”! We have to give up our grand ideas and all the drama we cook up TRYING TO BE SOMETHING OTHER THAN JUST THAT!

“WHO we are” reflects back to us by our relationships, circumstances, environment and over all state of mind….and it’s all based on how deeply we believe in the “WHAT we are” Energy.  So it’s important to become aware of WHO we think we are (by paying attention to what is reflecting back to us) in order to get to the “knowing” of WHAT we really are so we can be FREE and seated in LOVE.

Recently, at the Festival of Enlightenment held in Estes Park, I attended a workshop led by Panache Desai. I’ve created an illustration of what he described. Even though, at most levels, I knew this… through the power of his energy, and by the shear reality of that which he IS, it resonated at a deeper level within me. He used a marker and drew a very “rough” drawing of this idea in his workshop. I just felt compelled to create a “clearer picture” of it.

We all seem to feel the need to “SEEK” our highest potential, when all along, our highest potential exists in this moment. The biggest illusion is that we have to “strive” to find our Divine Light. Do you believe that is ALL that you are? Divine Light? If not, then it’s time that you start to recognize we have no choice in the fact that DIVINE LIGHT is ALL we are. We get to be the Lens that lets it shine through. We can remove the filters and JUST BE….or struggle with the concept that somehow we are not complete and whole in this moment.

Take a look at what is reflecting back to you and recognize it as a part of you. Embrace it without judgment and know that it too, is made up of the DIVINE LIGHT. That (Divine Light) is all that exists. It’s ALL SOURCE energy, it’s just that FEAR, and JUDGMENT and GUILT and SADNESS and all of those emotions we label as “bad”, vibrate at a heavier level and feel dense and uncomfortable. If all we do is recognize the DIVINITY in those aspects of ourselves, rather than resist them, push them away and cover them up, they will naturally transmute into LOVE which is the highest level of vibration there is. You will notice the “reflection” of those things showing up less and less.

TIP FOR THE DAY: When you feel an emotion/feeling or experience a “reflection” that makes you uncomfortable….Close your eyes for a moment, take in a nice slow, easy, full breath and say:

“There is Divine Light in this feeling and it’s okay. I know that there is NOTHING BUT DIVINE LIGHT in this “anxiety, fear, anger, judgment….etc.” that I am experiencing and I know that I am safe and complete in this moment.”

Hopefully this was helpful to you. I know that it was for me. It’s time we quit denying all the aspects of ourselves….ALL the aspects of being Human. Start to become aware in order to begin transmuting the lower vibrating emotions so that you can become more fully integrated into the FULLEST EXPRESSION OF WHO YOU ARE!

Love and Light ALWAYS!

Spiritual Path…OR just being authentic…Is there a difference

Posted by on Jun 19, 2011 in Positive Thinking, Self Love, Spiritual Audios, Spirituality | 3 comments

Please click on the link below.  Just because….

AUDIO:  Like it or not…. We are ALL on a Spiritual Journey

What is the “Spiritual Path” really?  We are all on a Spiritual Path just by virtue of being alive.  There is really nothing to seek, achieve, heal or “do” to be a Spiritual Being.  All that is necessary for us to enjoy the Light that we are is to KNOW that we are IT.  To recognize others as reflections of ourselves and see where we are and are not in alignment with our perfection.  Love YOU, so you can begin to LOVE all the other YOU’s that show up in your life!

Love and Light to you….or ME… which is it???

HEY WARRIOR!! – Yes I’m talking to you!

Posted by on Jun 5, 2011 in Positive Thinking, Self Help, Spiritual Poetry, Spirituality | 0 comments

WARRIOR

Standing strong against the storm of life and the happenings both in the heart and the external

Witnessing all that seems to be “happening” while recognizing your part in its creation

Standing still in the swirling debris of your mind, being the observer of what’s flying around you, seemingly standing in the eye of the storm

Reacting to only what is to be the message of it all, by embracing the chaos, observing, observing

Staying in the power of the knowing ~ staying still in the eye ~ feet planted solid into the earth

Allowing no one, no thing, no illusion to pull you from the expansive WARRIOR that you are

Patience to know that if you wait, observe and be still long enough, that the chaos remains outside of you, only to collapse in on itself as you remain a WARRIOR

Love and Light to you all!
