🔥 Day 7: Reconnecting to Your Clean Anger (your inner fire) 🔥
I've said it once, and I will say it again. The emotion of anger isn't the problem, it's what we do with it that is the problem.
Last year, a HUGE chunk of my personal work was getting intimate with my own anger, rage, and frustration. And I gotta say, nothing has supported my nervous system quite like this work.
When we are connected to our own clean heart-centered anger we can protect ourselves from boundary violations. We can stand up for ourselves in ways we once couldn't. When we are connected to our clean anger, we begin to feel what it feels like to be SAFE in our own own skin. We can take up space, and use our voices in ways we were once told not to.
This topic is a part of the #31daysofwellbeing series, because we can't be well if we are denying one of the most important, informative, and vital & adaptive emotions we have - Anger.
Coming home to your emotions & your body is life-changing work. It is work that I feel honored to do with women in my life daily.
Your inner child feels safe when you safeguard her in the way she couldn't in the past. If you're looking for a place to start -- just start to acknowledge anger, frustration, or heat pop up in your body by saying, "A part of me is feeling frustrated. And I am saying hello to that" -- from here, get curious. Why? What's triggered? What boundary was crossed?
Your emotions are valid, anger and all.
