I have long been fascinated by my relationship with anger and our cultural beliefs around allowing it to be expressed in healthy ways. What follows is a story about my relationship and experience with this powerful emotion on my journey of personal growth and a recent unexpected experience of releasing some stuck energy. In January 2021, I had an intuitive/channelled reading and was told by the channeler that I would at some point have an experience where I would have a release of anger and I would then be excited to consciously release more with support. This came up as work I would need to do relating to a question I had about my long-time struggle with weight. When I get awareness about something like this, I usually jump into action fairly quickly. So when I moved to Vernon in February I had an expectation/hope that I would be able to do this work at the local Men’s circle. I believe that I even vocalized this intention at the first circle I attended. As a side note, when living in Squamish I facilitated the Men’s group there for 7 years and struggled to find an opportunity to do meaningful anger work. Partially due to the inability to find a suitable location to do that type of work and what I believe is an unconscious resistance to doing so.
