Merriam-webster defines Anger as:
1. A strong feeling of displeasure and usually of antagonism ;
and then defines antagonism using the words ..opposition…hostility
2. A threatening or violet appearance or state
Etymonline (my favorite online source) uses the following words:
Hostile attitude, Sense of rage, wrath
It’s Proto-Germanic root (*angh-) uses the words: Tight, Painfully constricted, Pain, Distress, Grief, and Sorrow are used.
It used to be that I believed anger was the opposite of love. But it is not. Anger is a symptom of fear. And fear arises when we have lost our connection to The Divine, aka God, Source, The One, and so on. Fear arises when we have lost the Knowing of our inherent Power.
There seems to be quite a bit to express anger over in our outer worlds. And that’s often where we express our feelings of anger - outwardly at others- or others expressing it toward us.
But what about the inner world?
Somatically- meaning with in the body - we feel - and express - anger in some specific places. Do not assume that I am limiting the somatic sensation of anger to these areas, I’m simply pointing out that generally speaking, and in my spiritual and somatic studies, anger will express itself in the face (the 7th Cranial Nerve), including the jaw, right? And when it comes to anger expressing in organs, what comes up are the Spleen and the Gonads (reproductive organs). I have also understood others believing it presents in the liver.
Energetically( chakra ), anger will present with issues among the 2nd Chakra, (the sacral or “svadhisthana”). And musculoskeletally would effect the reproductive organs and the pelvis, mainly the sacrum/SI Joint, and the hips (note the proto-Germanic root above)
This is what I call a Disqualifying emotion and/or thought-form. It is in the same family as malice, hatred, and criticism.
As you feel into areas of your body, can you trace the feeling of the disqualifying emotion of anger (and its cohorts?). If not, or in addition this, what about these locations of your body? Do you have physical issues with any of these areas? Does your face show signs of anger? Your Jaw? Your mouth? What about your hips? Low back/SI Joint? Pelvic Floor dysfunction?
This is your self discovery - your research
There is no judgment to be had here, for we have ALL been swimming in a stew of disqualifying energy. And NOW is the time to clear these disqualifying energies from our bodies and bring in the qualifying language and vibration of our Highest Consciousness. There is a process to do that, and I can help with that. But before that happens, I encourage you to consider whether and where this emotion and use of the word has played a role in your life.
Sometimes anger can fuel the fire of change. It doesn’t HAVE to be labeled a “bad” emotion, but when it takes up residence, it disqualifies the higher frequencies you are capable of reaching.
Anger is an emotion that has the power to disqualify the virtues of the 7th Ray - The Violet Ray.
Qualifying Words found within the Violet Ray are:
