IS IT POSSIBLE TO TAME YOUR ANGER? (YUP, YOU CAN!)
So you’d think that after 6 years of intense spiritual study and meditation practice, I would understand what it meant to be a spiritual woman. That was until the day I became angrier than ever at my mom.
That’s when I had an ANGER blackout.
If you’ve ever completely lost control and started yelling things you later regret or maybe even slamming things then you’ve felt angry, you’ve suffered from an “anger blackout.”
It’s the space when you feel hot in the face, your heart races, you virtually stop breathing and your mind goes blank. You get into automatic attack mode. Your ears go deaf, you make stinging comments with the intention of defending yourself and proving your point.
When the blackout has passed you are left with a lump in your throat from the shame. A belly aches from regret. And the pain in your heart because of the guilt.
Ever since I was a teenager, my mom has a way of triggering my anger. This last anger blackout happened in April when she came to help me when Ayaan was born
Last week, I was off the internet radar because I spent a week at my parent’s house. Ever since that last anger blackout, I felt like a total failure on my spiritual journey.
How could I still harbor so much anger even after my yoga, meditation and mindfulness practice?
I decided to make a change. For the past 5 months, I’ve been healing the root cause of my anger and practicing techniques to stay calm when my anger flares.
From my own personal journey, I share 3 powerful tips on how to manage your anger without losing your cool (i.e- have a crazy anger blackout). These have helped me stay calm when I would normally act out on anger.
I’m happy to report I stayed calm the whole week. It’s not because my mom didn’t trigger me, it’s because I changed my approach on how to handle my anger with these three tips.
If you have a challenging relationship with your parents, children, spouse or friend who continuously trigger your anger, this week’s episode is a much watch.

Anger is the greatest barrier for us to truly connect to one another. And the human connection is one of our deepest desires. To feel closer to your spouse, children, family, and friends it’s important to realize anger is a normal emotion but unleashing the fury of anger is totally NOT a normal reaction. Let’s do our part to change the dynamic in our relationships. When one person changes, past patterns can never be repeated in the same way.
