Anger is an emotion that most people would prefer to avoid if at all possible. Anger makes us feel out of control. Perhaps I should actually reverse the order in which that statement is made? Certainly the two go hand in hand.
Untamed and unchecked anger has the power to completely destroy many things in many senses. Physical objects may be smashed to smithereens, relationships can be placed in a precarious situation, ones job may be thrown away.
Anger rarely achieves a positive outcome. At best, most of us feel more than a little shame faced after giving in to an outburst of anger. Anger, we realize after the event, is rarely worth it.
There are many things that we are presented with in life that seem to test us to our limits. One of the many learning curves that life offers to us is that of working out how to overcome anger and rise above it, or how to use it in a positive and powerful manner.
If the emotion of anger is channeled so as to power a sense of purpose then it is being used in a positive way. This ability can be likened to building a mental and emotional wind tunnel that allows you to direct the wind in a particular chosen direction instead of it simply swirling around like a tornado. This takes a high degree of mental and emotional control, but it is possible and doable.
Many people will say that they feel it is better to express their anger than to keep it in. In many ways this is true, so long as it is expressed in a manner that doesn‚Äôt cause greater destruction. In effect, it is good to express anger so long as it is in a controlled fashion. Again, this can be difficult to do, but it is both possible and doable.
Some people have a low threshold where the balance tips over to allow anger to take hold. Others have a high threshold. Your anger thermostat is set in accordance with a combination of your general temperament and past experience. No matter what genetic wiring you have inherited or what experiences you have encountered you can still temper your automated responses to anger cues.
Saying to yourself "This is how I am" or "This is how I was born" or "It shows how much I care" are all variations of a cop-out. Merely saying or thinking these thoughts displays the fact that you have already given in to anger and are not willing to take the time or make the effort to master your own wayward emotions.
Anger can be controlled and directed in a positive way so long as you wish to do so. Hypnosis is a very helpful aid in this quest. Hypnosis is a natural state of relaxation. It allows access to your subconscious mind, which is the part of your mind where automatic patters of thought and behavior are stored. It is the part of your mind that rules and drives your anger thermostat.
With well-placed hypnotic suggestion you can find a new and better way in which you can deal with things that used to trigger the emotion of anger. With hypnosis you can control this instinctive and automated emotional reaction.
