If you are feeling angry, that's okay. Let's start by taking a deep breath and slowly letting it out. Now take a deeper, slower breath in the nose and out the mouth. And now one even slower breath in and out. Though anger can be debilitating, it can also teach you. Let's learn from our anger while we relax. Continue breathing at a slower pace as you allow your tense muscles to unwind. Start with your feet releasing the tension in your toes. Then move up relaxing the muscles in your lower legs and upper legs. Elongate your back, stomach, and neck as your shoulders release and drop. Soften the muscles in your face and eyes. Sway your head gently a few times side to side as you ask yourself this first question. What triggered my anger, and what emotions did I feel because of that trigger? How did that anger make my body feel? And how open did my spirit feel? What thoughts went through my mind when I was angry? Did I react in any way? What did I do? As you answer this next question, open your inner dialogue up to God. What was the result of my anger? Now, as you continue to review your answers, ask God to help you learn from this event, to give you wisdom and peace.
