"I am angry." vs "I have anger in me."
Emotions can become overwhelming and it is easy to let them become WHO we are and allow them to take over. Even "good" emotions can take an unconscious control of your actions and thoughts. I have been overwhelmed by emotions many times through my life and even with everything I now know I can be triggered easily depending on the circumstances.
Emotions are not who we are. They are something we experience and can observe. We can use the emotion to guide us and lead us to a message that is being given to us. You are not angry, you are the being that is observing the anger in yourself. There is a difference. You have the power to not let the anger control your actions and thoughts.
Essential oils are a tool that can be used during this process. Each oil has a unique chemistry that can be of assistance for different types of emotions. They assist us in the process of moving the emotion from taking over and becoming WHO we are - to us becoming the OBSERVER of the emotion.
The oils that are part of our emotional blends such as Forgive are good examples. Forgive is a good aroma to smell when anger takes over and you need help to move in to observing the anger instead of being the anger.
Next time you start to feel anger boiling up inside you do the following and see if you can move to a state of "observing" the emotion:
- Stop everything if you can, find a focal point to focus on, and take 3 big breaths.
- Place a few drops of Forgive on your hand or use your Forgive Touch.
- Take in the aroma of the Forgive as you keep on breathing.
- Ask yourself why you are experiencing anger? ( not - why am I angry)
- Ask yourself if this emotion is beneficial at this time?
- Ask yourself what the message could be in this situation?
- Continue to breath and ask yourself if you have control over your thoughts and actions at this time?
Sometimes anger is an appropriate emotion to experience based on the situation and can give you the energy needed to take a certain action. Many times, once you have more control over your thoughts and actions, you realize that something triggered you to experience anger even though the emotion of anger is not a productive one for the situation and is causing more harm than good.
Emotions Mentor sessions can be very beneficial in working through this process. Each session is unique to my client and what they are experiencing at the time. I am there as a guide and observer for them and ask questions to assist them in understanding what may have triggered an emotion and or the message behind it. At times we go through the process of releasing what can be a trigger so that in the future the emotion will not come up in that particular situation.
