Have you ever wished you could wave a magic wand to release all the anger that you have been carrying with you for years? Would you like to get rid of your stress and tension and shift your perspective to one of tranquility?
While anger is a potent emotion that isn’t easy to shake, a new beginning could be yours with the life-transformative practice of Kundalini meditation. You can calm your mind and learn to meditate anytime and anywhere you become triggered. Reorganizing your nervous system is an inside job, and it all starts with your prana or breath. Changing your breath changes your energy.
With Kundalini meditation, all breathing goes in and out of the nose, stimulating the meridian points in the nasal cavity and reestablishing your connection to health and spirit. You’d be surprised at the difference this can make in your life when you practice regularly. Gabrielle Bernstein, a well-known author, speaker and coach in the spiritual community, promotes Kundalini meditation. She suggests a simple Kundalini breathing technique that can help you feel and then dissipate your anger.
Want to learn more? There are a few basic breathing techniques and meditations that you can use for anger management. To experience Kundalini energy for yourself, try the following:
Breath of Fire
Breath of Fire is a rapid form of energized breathing that is very energizing and can have a tremendous impact on your mood. This simple technique cleanses the blood and helps you detoxify, getting its power from the belly button and solar plexus. It is powerful, and cleans out the lungs, mucous linings, blood vessels and cells. Like many meditation and yoga poses, it starts in a comfortable position with a straight spine. Then, you begin to rapidly inhale and exhale—inhalations and exhalations should be equal in length. The navel will naturally move in and out, but the focus should remain on the breath. Most people practice this technique—which spends an equal amount of time on the inhale and exhale—anywhere from three to 20 minutes.
Sitali Pranayama is a popular pose that starts with being seated with a straight spine, in a comfortable position. It starts with curling the tongue and sticking it out past the lips, and ends with a deep inhalation through the mouth and tongue. This technique is known to flush out anger by cooling the body, affecting the area of the spine near the fourth and sixth vertebrae. It brings down blood pressure, fevers and can help with digestion.
Long Deep Breathing
Long Deep Breathing is the most natural thing to do, yet if you are like most people, you probably take short, shallow breaths on a regular basis. You can balance your emotions and become considerably less reactive by breathing slowly and expanding your lungs much more than you usually do. This type of breathing facilitates actual changes in brain chemistry that allow you to shift your emotions.
