I’m feeling so much lighter today. I’m so light that I feel I could float to the heavens. I’m beginning to see signs of major improvement over my emotions.
I’ve become so conscious of them when they appear, that I have found myself categorizing the themes that cause these crazy emotions to emerge.
I boil inside and want to treat the culprit with lip smacking revenge. Most of the time, but not always, my response is usually out of proportion to the actual situation. What I’ve learned is that impulsiveness is a crime on my part.
Do you know what this response does to my body? It causes my face to flush, my mind races and my body quakes and quivers. This causes damage to my heart and circulatory system. Over the years, this has taken quite a toll on my body, and more of a toll on my relationships.
What I’ve learned to do to diminish this emotion is to remember that the other person has their own issues. They are not necessarily lashing out at me, but their response is a conditioned response from something in their past.
I have to first forgive myself, than move into curing this situation through awareness, deep breathing exercises, meditation, affirmations and energy psychology through PSYCH-K® or tapping.
PSYCH-K® is a muscle testing process that discovers a self-limiting belief that is likely at the root of my anger.
It could be a simple statement like, “I am clear about what I want in a relationship”, or, “it’s okay for me to express truths in a relationship”. My subconscious mind lumps all these statements under the heading of anger.
I might have experienced my mother using this same tactic towards my father when he made her angry, and even though it doesn’t make it right, I’ve learned to react the same way. I have to reverse this limiting belief trigger in order to disarm my same old, same old reaction.
On the other hand, I’ve also used tapping as an option to minimize my angry reactions. Tapping is done with my fingers on certain meridian points on my body.
I then do a second round of tapping on my eyebrow, little fingernail and collarbone and say several times “I forgive them because they didn’t know how to do it differently”, or, “I forgive them but I do hold them accountable”.
See the following blogs I’ve written on tapping:

What I’ve shared above, is just a smidgen of what these two processes entail.
More to come tomorrow.
As I test and tap my way out of anger, I send you my blessings and wishes for a prosperous and abundant day.
