I was quivering with frustration and anger over someone who had yet again derailed a process that had already lasted way longer than I’d have liked. I decided to stick to my routine of yoga, five Tibetans and meditation.
I chose loving-kindness meditation over the zen meditation as my mind wasn’t in the mood to follow empty silences today. So, i put on my favourite track and as i came to the last part of visualising a person with whom communication had been difficult and sending love, joy, peace, health and happiness their way. It did seem difficult at first but as i stuck it out with my hands on my heart, blessing the person in my mind.
I noticed, for the first time ever, flaming, fiery energy going in to my heart via one hand and a soft, flowery energy coming out through the other. I did instantly realise the alchemy and the mine of gold I had uncovered, for myself. I had just ALCHEMISED ANGER INTO LOVE with my heart acting as a converting machine.
I wonder though if it’d work if the bottled up anger or frustration was considerable. Nonetheless, being no Buddha, I did, however, come to regret that I hadn’t put the fiery energy to good use and cleaned out the attic or garden, for example! Another lessen learned, don’t give away (yet), what you still need 😉
PS: I’d love to hear from you if you’ve experienced something similar or even dissimilar 🙂
