Anger is a strong emotion that impacts the entire nervous system.
Anger triggers the body’s “fight” or “flight” reaction, which causes stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol to flood the body. Depending on how angry you are, you might not be capable of making rational choices or behaving in a way that isn’t damaging to you or someone else.
At its core, anger is nothing but the ego reacting to life not going according to plan, specifically your plan. Whether it’s because you hit a detour when you were late or someone betrayed you, it always comes back to unmet expectations.
A deep breath can help in the moment, but any anger that isn’t fully processed stays in the mind and the body waiting for the chance to reactivate with the next unmet expectation.
Anger affects our entire being – physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Western medicine has finally recognized the benefits of more holistic techniques regarding anger. Traditional “anger management,” which includes things like exercise and talk therapy, was once the only option. Now, healthcare providers recommend more Eastern methods like meditation, yoga and acupuncture.
All of this can be very beneficial. It’s always a good idea to have a spiritual practice of some kind and who doesn’t feel better after exercising or getting a massage. But is that enough?
Anger Isn’t Always from This Lifetime
It’s a gift when you can pinpoint exactly what caused your anger, but what happens when you can’t identify the cause? Many people I’ve talked to experience a “free floating” anger that doesn’t seem to have a reason. This can feel frustrating and even make you question if something is “wrong” with you.
There are several reasons why you might not understand where anger is coming from. Perhaps it’s caused by something you experienced when you were young that wasn’t fully processed. If there are complex reasons that caused your anger, it may take several rounds of dealing with it to dissolve it completely.
It could also be because you’re working against something dictated by a past life or even a contract agreed to for this lifetime.
How the Akashic Records Can Help Release Your Anger
Soul contracts are powerful commitments. When we’re unaware of the contracts that we’ve made with others in our soul groups, or even with ourselves, we can find ourselves bucking our path. This often leads to experiences that cause us to be angry because things aren’t going according to “our” plan.
Working in the Akashic Records can help you to discover your soul contracts and find the power to remove the situations and/or people who help to create your anger. The Akashic Masters can also help you understand any karma you might be processing or vows that you made in a past life that have come with you into this one, both of which can help you understand and dissolve your anger.
Knowledge is power. The awareness waiting for you in the Akashic Records can bring you acceptance and peace as well as empower you to make different choices. This information goes a long way toward helping you to relinquish your plan and nurtures the understanding that there is a plan greater than the one you’ve made.
