  • Headaches

  • Digestion problems

  • Clenched jaw / teeth grinding

  • Insomnia

  • Increased anxiety

  • Depression

  • High Blood Pressure

  • Liver Disease

  • Heart Attacks

  • Strokes

Holding onto anger

Are you thinking to yourself “But I don’t get angry, this doesn’t apply to me”? Trust me, I used to think exactly the same way until I got a very serious liver inflammation of unknown cause (none of the countless blood tests could identify a cause). What I did have was years of suppressed rage that I hadn’t expressed. And once I acknowledged this and got a healing around it, my liver inflammation dropped by 80%

So if you find yourself using any of the following phrases, these techniques can also be of benefit you

  • God, you’re infuriating

  • I’m so annoyed right now

  • This is sooooo frustrating

  • It’s so irritating when you do that . . . . .

  • That . . . . . makes me so furious

  • I’ve very cross at . . . .

  • It offends me when . . . / I’m offended by that

Letting out your anger

So how can you release this anger without becoming a raging lunatic? I have five techniques that I find work really well for both myself and my clients. They are:

  1. Every day, it’s a good idea to ask yourself the following questions “Am I angry with anyone? Am I angry at any circumstances?” For now, just listen in to your intuition and see what comes up. Next month I shall be teaching you, how to self-muscle test and that will help with the answers

  2. Once you have identified with who or why you are angry, write it out. Writing it down by hand is usually best because it is slower and it allows you to process the information better. Plus journaling is renown as a healing technique

  3. Visualise that the person who you are angry with is in front of you and then tell them all the reasons why you are angry with them. Just pour your heart out to them. You will find it to be very cathartic (I recommend that you do this technique when you are on your own and know that you will not be disturbed)

  4. Go to a park, forest, a beach or cliffs (wherever you can be alone in nature and feel comfortable) and scream your anger and frustration out. Continue to scream and yell and howl until you feel as though all of the rage is gone

5. Finally – It can be beneficial to hold the acupressure point Liver 3 as this is a great release point for anger. You just hold it as gently as you would place a finger on your eyelids (no need to dig into the point). What you need to wait for is what will feel like a blood pulse. This is an indication that the Qi has become unblocked and has started flowing again. You want to wait until it becomes a slow rolling pulse before you move onto the other foot
