6 Ways to Dissolve Anger

Do you often get angry and disgruntled?

Ever been in a situation where you literally feel your blood boil?

Don't let anger eat away at you and destroy your health and harmony. Try these 6 effective ways to dissolve anger naturally...

#1 What is causing your anger? Why do you feel the way you do? What do you want? Whenever you have an angry episode, look at the root cause and why you're allowing this fierce energy to surface. When you know the triggers that cause you to react, you can go about changing the situation and changing the way you respond to those triggers.

#2 If you get angry often, realize that you have 2 choices: you can let the anger and negativity consume you or you can stop the 'habit' that has formed by changing your thoughts and the way you react for a healthier result. What do you choose?

#3 Feeling the anger rising? Find ways to re-channel that energy in a positive way. For example, massage the back of your neck or shoulders while focusing on something that would normally make you laugh... go for a walk or jog to 'run off' that negative energy... throw some paint at a a silly dance...

#4 Change your self-talk. Let go of the negative responses, thoughts and feelings and replace with positive ones. Surrender, forgive, and release what doesn't nurture you or others.

#5 Breathe... with each out-breath, release those wounded, annoyed, frustrated feelings. Recognise that these anger outbursts only steal your time, energy, happiness, and contentment. Breathe in joy and breathe out whatever is stealing your joy.

#6 Laugh! Look for something that makes you smile. Comedy films or clips on YouTube or just the thought of something funny can dissolve negative energy. It's impossible to laugh and be upset and angry at the same time. Focus on laughter.

Learning how to dissolve angry thoughts and feelings may take some time. It's a process of change, which begins when you commit to changing how you feel and react. Get the support you need!

Remember, anger is just energy in motion (emotion) which you can change as soon as you recognise that YOU can!

Make a difference today!

'Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.' -Buddha

Celebrate Your Uniqueness!

Are you trying to look and be like someone else?

Do you wish you were more like the popular girl or guy who always seems to get what they want?

Do you copy the style of your favourite celebrity at the expense of being you?

Having role models is one thing, but why not embrace the wonderful individual that you are. Here's how to celebrate your uniqueness...

# Realize that anyone who has become someone to admire has achieved that status by being unique.

# Recognise that you are an original. When you try being a copy of someone else, you lose your beautiful and dynamic uniqueness. Be the wonderful YOU!

# Cultivate your own style. Work on your self-esteem. Realize that you are a dynamic individual capable of success.

# Want to be attractive and desired? First, fall in love with yourself. When you are happy in your own body, you exude an attractive and desirable presence.

# Invest in yourself to be the best that you can be. Live a healthy lifestyle, work on your self-development, and focus on improving your gifts.

# Be the kind of person who inspires others. Develop a happy and positive outlook. Be kind and caring.

# You are amazing and have so many fabulous qualities and gifts. Believe in you!

When you are at ease with your self, you are at ease with the world. Be the awesome gift that is you. Honor and celebrate your uniqueness. There is no one else quite like you!

How to Be At Ease with Life

Are your experiences nurturing you or creating angst?

Do you find yourself constantly battling with the stuff that happens to you?

Are you always on edge because you're wondering what the future has in store?

Life has its challenges, but it's not meant to be difficult. Here's my guide to being at ease with life...

* Accept that life has its ups and downs, no matter how hard you try to avoid the downs. Stuff happens! Stuff will always happen. You might not like it, but it 'is as it is'. Just accept and, in doing so, be at ease.

* Enjoy living in the present moment. Stop dwelling on the past and don't worry about the future. Now is what really matters. You'll find a deep-rooted contentment here. The Now allows you to just be and embrace your true happiness.

* Stop being a controller. When you try to control everything that happens in your life, you hang on so tightly that it causes stress, tension, and dis-ease. Change what you can change and release what you can't. Simple!

* Set yourself life goals that are manageable and attainable within the given frame of time. Why create stress for yourself when you can achieve your goals with some slight adjustment.

* Always live your truth. Be you! Don't try to be someone else or live up to someone else's expectations. Doing so just causes more dis-ease. Honor the unique, amazing being that you are.

* Enjoy the journey. Many put so much effort into reaching the destination or achieving an end result when it's the journey that really matters. Be at ease where you are right now and see the beauty and perfection in this moment.

Life is easy when you accept that it is.

Have an amazing day!

De-Clutter Your Life

Do you feel weighed down by emotional and material baggage?

Would you like to be more joyful and carefree?

If so, make time to de-clutter your life and experience a deeper sense of peace and freedom. Here's how...

# Start by making a list of what feels heavy in your life. Identify material clutter (excess stuff you have around you in your home) and emotional / mental clutter (negative, obsessive, draining thoughts and feelings)... all the stuff that makes you tired, chained and lifeless.

# Now imagine what it would feel like to let go of all this mental and material clutter. Imagine how light and joyful and liberated you would be.

# Accept that it's time to release what no longer serves you. Clear out all your clutter. Do it in stages or at a pace that suits you. Right now, just commit to the process. As you let things go, notice how much lighter and brighter you feel.

# Be at peace with the decisions you make. If it 'feels' right to declutter and release thoughts, feelings and any excess material items, then that's what matters. Just let go!

Is your inner programming sabotaging your de-cluttering? Are you holding on to things that do not really support you? Maybe you need help with your self-talk!

When you release what no longer supports you on life's journey, you create time, space, and freedom to enjoy life.

So, what are you letting go of today? What clutter are you clearing?

Take that first step and start living with greater joy and freedom!

How to Change Your Life the Easy Way!

Feel like something is missing in your life?

Are there habits, situations and circumstances that you'd really like to change?

Embracing a better life may seem daunting, but it's easy when you set one good intention at a time. Here's how...

Choose just one goal and focus on it!

Even if you have a big list of things you desperately wish to change, start with just one goal.

It can be a small ambition or a big one. What matters is that you place all your attention and action into achieving this one life-enhancing thing.

Maybe you need to do more exercise to get fit, improve your health, or lose weight. Perhaps you wish to start learning a different language or how to play the piano. Maybe you want to start eating healthy foods to improve your well-being. Choose just one thing from your wish list.

Make this goal your primary focus for the next week or month ahead. Make time for this goal every single day.

When you focus on just one positive thing at a time and commit to it daily, you quickly form a new habit. This habit will become natural and easy as you give it your attention. Before you know it, you will have achieved your goal and created a positive change in your life.

Need a bit of help to get into the right frame of mind? Try Subliminal Power!

Changing any aspect of your life is easy when you focus your attention. So, what will you give your energy to this week to enhance your life?

Have a wonderful week!
