Anger gets a bad rap in the spiritual community – and understandably, as most of us had disturbing, upsetting, frightening, or even abusive experiences with it. As a result, we often judge it as a “bad” emotion and then deny or repress it. However, there’s a down side to this, as the body then stores the emotion and the mind may turn it against the self, potentially resulting in depression, anxiety, shame, guilt, or even physical pain or illness. Anger actually has a spiritual purpose – learn what it is, how to work with anger in an appropriate and healthy way, and harness its energy for transformation and greater good. Call in with your experiences, comments, questions, and to receive Connie’s expert guidance on how to spiritually work with your own anger.
