Law of Attraction: How to Tame That Temper ...

There's nothing wrong with getting angry. Anger is a natural and important human emotion. There are always those moments when you feel irritable or moody or when you just want to scream to release those frustrations. Anger can be very healthy when it's handled correctly. It's one of the ways your subconscious mind is telling you that things aren't going the way you need them to be. How it's expressed will determine how each situation will turn out.

Sadly today, I've failed to control my temper with Nicky. All of us got up late this morning after a late night of movies and computer games. Nicky had been moody the whole time and was further aggitated because he was having a login problem to his Maple game. When I enquired, he was rude and his line of answer were just eating up my patience. In the end, disappointingly I blew up and scream at him. Thankfully, we've ended the hostility with a truce ... we both admit that we've been wrong. To prevent any future negative outbursts, I realised I have to take control over myself more effectively.

So how do you stop from reacting angrily? How do you prevent explosive reactions?

According to the Law of Attraction, you are just like a magnet, sending out energy on one end, only to receive it again at the opposite end. The Law of Attraction is about thoughts and emotions. It rewards any thought with the same thought or any emotion with the same emotion. The reward of patience is patience. The reward of anger is anger. The reward of love is love. This is your CHOICE!

If you find yourself irritable, moody or carrying some pent-up frustrations, see what is causing them and make corrections immediately. Search inside you and try forgive which will include yourself too. Move forward firmly towards what will bring you happiness. When you focus on positive thoughts and emotions, your anger will start to dissipate.

Here's some simple tips to take control of yourself:

1. Think carefully before you say anything so that you don't end up saying something you'll regret.

2. If you're too angry to think rationally, remove yourself from the situation.

3. Give yourself a few quiet minutes alone to cool down. Think of something relaxing.

4. When you feel your body relax, take a few deep breaths.

5. Return to the original situation and try a different approach.

6. If your new approach doesn't help you stay in control of your temper, repeat steps 1-4.

7. If you've got a problem with someone, don't hold it inside, let him/her know about it.

8. Use humor to release tensions, such as imagining yourself or the other person in silly situations. Don't use sarcasm, though — it's just another form of unhealthy expression.
Always remember: Devil

  • The reward for patience is happiness.
  • That 5 seconds stand between you and logic, count to 5, and remember that logic always beats anger.
