Sometimes, for No Good Reason, We All Experience Anger
Even though I have been surrounded by love, praise, kindness, exceptional food, warm coats, and great conversation throughout my life, every couple of hours just a bit of anger, over something meaningless, would arise. It would feel like it inflamed my throat. I’d stop, remember to breathe in good, and breathe out resentment, anger, distrust, grief. But ultimately, all my brain kept coming back to was “blah, blah, blah, *@&!ing blah, just let me be angry!”
What is anger? Why does it arise? And what are some natural solutions for anger?
In Chinese Medicine, the Liver is the Seat of Anger
When the liver is inflamed, anger, frustration, and depression can all manifest as symptoms of a greater need. Knowing this actually gave me encouragement. While it may feel icky temporarily, releasing anger in small doses, and laughing at yourself before you blow up on someone else, may actually be a sign that the liver energy is moving and flowing more freely.
I’m now on Day 5 of a cleanse, and I remember the words of Charlotte Gerson “You can’t keep one disease and heal two others. When the body heals, it heals everything.” So, I can look at this anger, sink into it, and allow it to fester, or take it as a sign that my liver is actually loosening up and letting go of that which doesn’t serve it. Perhaps as my body is shifting, so too is my mind. And ain’t that just the best thing ever?
As a side tip, you can use these Castor Oil Packs to physically help calm the liver.
