I saw your facebook post about a yoga teacher the other
day. I get upset about how nowadays anyone can become certified yoga
teachers. In particular I know a girl who is getting certified. She eats
very unhealthy, smokes and so on.
I’ve been practicing yoga for years and she considers herself to be a
yoga expert just because she’s getting certified. That makes me very
I don’t know how to release this anger. I journal my thoughts, but that’s it. Do you have any other suggestions?
Journaling is a very good idea. However it’s not good to keep this energy in a notebook at home.
Rip off the pages with angry words and burn them (safely!).
Hide the bits that can’t be burnt into the earth or flush them down
the toilet. Say a quick prayer that when these bits reach the earth, the
earth will do with them whatever it wants. Now it’s not your issue –
you’ve released it.
This works because you project/channel your anger into a tangible
thing (a paper) and then you see this projected energy burnt into
insignificant pieces. Then you see with your own eyes how you bury these
pieces into the earth and they are no more.
Although it seems very easy, don’t underestimate the power of this process!
You can also use the same process to let go of some person you no
longer want to be attached to. In this case you should burn his/her
Burning celebrations to release energy
There are some communities in the world who celebrate the burning of
old things every year. It’s a big festival on the day, and a lot of bad
energy is released into the earth, leaving people feeling light and
Here’s a quote from Cuzcoeats.com
about the tradition of people living in Cuzco, Peru:
For many, part of augering a good year for themselves is
to get rid of their old clothes and other old things by burning them.
People will make dolls of old clothes in order to light them on fire at
midnight. In this way they can begin the New Year by starting fresh.
…people welcome the celebrations by burning old things off as a sign of making way for the new.
In many cultures this process of burning the old for the energy
release and inviting new opportunities has been modified into burning
one single thing or disappeared completely. However anyone who chooses
can revive this process and get the same benefit people of the old got.
It’s important to get rid of the things that you channel your anger
or other negative emotions to. A good way to get rid of the energy
stored in an item is to burn it and bury the left bits into the earth.
This shows to your mind that your anger has vanished and so you become
more positive and open to new opportunities.
