“Bouncing Back”– Rewriting your Brain for Maximum Resilience: Linda Graham
.

“Left hemisphere: Verbal processing: Language, Speech, Symbols

Right Hemisphere: nonverbal processing: visual images, body movements, emotions, experiences in relationship

Left hemisphere: linear processing (one bit of data after another in sequence)

Right hemisphere: holistic processing (seeing the big picture)

Left hemisphere: logical, rational processing: abstract reasoning and analysis, cause and effect.

Right hemisphere: emotional processing, including processing of facial expressions in fusiform gurus,

Left hemisphere: Sense of social and emotional self”
.
.
.
My two cents: Mindfulness practice, using focus on the breath, trains the mind to let attention fade from the left hemisphere (“The Ego”, thoughts, emotions, desires, needs, judgments, fears, worry, doubt, dissociation), allowing us to cross over to the other expansive side.

Let us debunk some judgments first. We do not control anything but where we place our attention and our attitude.

From that space, it would seem simple, basic, to change where we place our attention. Placing attention on irrational fear, which usually precedes anger, gives it power.

Jim, practicing focus on the breath, letting go of thought will prepare you for your next visit from anger.

When you can build focus skills to the point where you can let go of the storyline and feel your body sensations, healing will be quick.

When anger arrives, step back, breathe, let go, get to know your body mechanisms and emotions. They are harmless when they become friends.

Here is another tool which may work. Set up a kitty for donations.

Everytime you lose your temper, ante up. Make it so it impacts you financially. Maybe it is a $1, $5, $20. Later, donate this in person to a needy soul.

Money, financial loss may speed awareness.

Example: Someone or something has crossed our path, cut us off, remarked not appropriately, anger arises. Emotionally blood pressure, respiration and heart rate have spiked, tunnel vision, loss of fine motor skills and mental confusion follow.

A choice appears.

We grasp, become angry, maybe enraged or we step back, use the space we have developed and come back to the breath, now.

It seems benign, powerless, simple but the greatest Samurai ever to walk this planet used it.

Someone who killed 62 competitively thought anger a crutch.

Bias brings the ego, thought, and confusion.

In battle, anger never played a part.

Please examine how your anger is used and how a Samurai in lethal danger uses none.

Why is yours needed if not in lethal threat?

Sit quietly, focus, let go, empty the mind, prepare for irrational anger, surrender to it.

“Dear God,I can’t seem to control my anger.”
.
.
Let me share these ideas about anger and emotions.

Then, let us take some small actions to change the mind, daily, repetitively, almost devoutly.

The answer, the solution, the healing and happiness are far more simplistic than you can imagine.

Coping with Trauma Related Dissociation:

.
“One of the most difficult aspects about anger is how intense and overwhelming it can feel; a lot of energy is generated in the body, and the physical sensations of anger are very powerful. After all, anger is an inborn tendency designed to support us in threatening situations. Some people believe their anger gives them a sense of strength and makes them feel good; they are afraid if their anger is “taken away,” they will lose their power and energy.
*
Of course, it may well give them strength for the moment, but there are many other ways to find energy and a sense of being in control of oneself while still being appropriately angry at the right times.
*
Many traumatized individuals feel ashamed of their anger, because they believe anger is “bad,” or they believe they will be punished and rejected if they express or even feel anger, or because they fear being angry makes them “just like” the people who hurt them. They fear losing control, yet their anger remains intense and easily provoked.
*
Like many intense negative emotions, anger is often disowned and held in various parts of the personality, so that other parts need not experience it but will react in other ways instead.”
*
It is essential to remember that anger is an emotion that guides behavior, not behavior in itself. Anger as a feeling is not dangerous or bad; it is an inevitable part of life. It is how you cope with anger that makes it adaptive or not.”
