One of the most immediate and obvious symptoms of spiritual awakening is anger and frustration.
This destructive force comes on suddenly during the process of awakening and is actually a result of deeper parts of you “waking up” as you empower yourself.
We learn in life that anger is a negative, low emotion – and it is. But if you learn to use your anger correctly, it can be useful in the early stages of spiritual awakening.
Awakening Moves You From Passive To Active
The process of spiritual awakening takes you from an unawakened state to an awakened one.
What that means for you is that the things you have been “putting up with” are rapidly becoming things you won’t stand for anymore.
The anger isn’t arriving with your spiritual awakening; it was always there. You just didn’t act on it before because you were unawakened.
Anger Drives Self-Empowerment
Anger occurs when you get pushed too far. When someone crosses a line, or a situation becomes unbearable, you respond with anger as a way to empower yourself.
Anger empowers you to leave an unbearable situation or disassociate from someone who is crossing the line.
Spiritual awakening is all about self-empowerment. It’s about taking control of your consciousness so that you can take control of your life.
Anger vs Love
Some people disagree with using anger, as it is a low-frequency emotion. Instead, they say we should use love, kindness and other gentle strength.
If that’s an option, then absolutely.
But for people going through a spiritual awakening, the vital thing is self-empowerment.
Sometimes, we can stay in situations or remain connected with people because we love them – even though we know we should leave.
It is essential to get this the right way around. You need to love yourself first, so acting with love would give the same result as acting with anger.
However, many people at this stage of spiritual awakening have yet to achieve self-love, so acting with love for them would be staying in the unbearable situation.
As long as it is expressed healthily, using anger during spiritual awakening is an acceptable way of gaining self-empowerment.
Expressing Anger Healthily
Anger is a powerful emotion, but its low vibration gives it some harmful side effects.
It is important to express anger in a healthy way that does good rather than harm.
Use words only to express anger – use wise words that you have thought through! Many things are said in anger that simply aren’t true, just intended to hurt.
Expressing anger healthily is about expressing yourself, telling whoever it is how you feel and what needs to change for you not to feel that way.
Anger is about self-empowerment, but that is power over yourself, not over others.
Use the anger that comes with the early stages of spiritual awakening to free yourself of the shackles of passivity and take back control over your destiny.
