I’m so full of anger and I can’t seem to rid myself of ego. I don’t really know what to do.
When you are angry it arises from the solar plexus, fire in the belly. When you feel heated, it consumes and rises like fire, you lose control of yourself because control is the main captive of the solar plexus. The Solar Plexus is your Power Source, control of the life Force Energy.
Solar Plexus Chakra
The Third Chakra
The Manipura Chakra, which means the diamond, is the energy center of personal feelings, power and sensitivity. When in balance, this energy center creates a person who is outgoing, cheerful, open and expressive, intelligent, self confident, flexible, and has a keen sense of respect for themselves and others. This person is also very decisive and has strong nerves. This person may also show qualities of being out going, cheerful, spontaneous, relaxed. This chakra can give clarity of thought and an increased awareness. It stimulates interest and curiosity.
The Solar Plexus Chakra often deals with raw emotions, like anger, frustration, and intuition or gut feelings. Being extremely sensitive, particularly to the emotions of others any blockages here can easily create uncontrolled emotions, tenseness, hostility, rage and severe stomach problems. Located between the sternum bone and the belly, it governs the will, the mind, emotions, stomach, and upper digestive tract, assimilation of nutrients, psychic experiences, rational left brain) thoughts, ego, vital energies, control, accomplishments, and the freedom to be yourself. Organization is important to this chakra that likes everything orderly and disciplined. It is the center of self esteem, power, directed will and it radiates expansiveness, warmth & joy. It quickly takes issue when feeling threatened and this can cause an even greater bridge to have to span when treating problems.
Most of us are taught from early childhood to repress our emotions and feelings. The rules of society say that we must always be practical and wary. It cautions us against exploitation. We live in a restricted society where people will often take advantage of one another, so this problem is difficult to overcome.
By repressing the third chakra, you place yourself on auto-pilot and this can cause severe emotional problems among others. Doubt and mistrust will eventually destroy your vitality if this continues. They must both be endured and finally overcome.
To aid this center, you must relax your emotions. This centre must be made more available. You must be more sensitive, laugh more, cry more, touch and feel more.
An overabundance of this color is said to result in conceit and loudness. One with an imbalance and overactive chakra here may be judgemental, a workaholic, a perfectionist, demanding, sometimes emotional in the extreme, and tends to complain a lot about relationships. This person needs help to relax. They are very rigid. Besides being judgemental and critical, they may also do some mental bullying. They are always planning but never doing. They are stubborn and need to change. This can be treated with violet or purple followed by a brief period of yellow.
A person with an underactive third chakra is always depressed, lacking in confidence, worrying about what others think, afraid to be alone, and confused. These people often carry around hurt feelings and feel confused. Their digestion is poor and they have an inane fear of failure, along with poor judgement, apathy, feelings of being deprived of recognition, aloofness, and feelings of isolation. They are often afraid to learn new things and have many psychosomatic problems. This is best treated with yellow.The image in nature to focus on is sunlight, a ripe wheat field, or sunflowers.

When unbalanced there may be other problems like lack of will, overemphasis on power, anger, eating disorders, fear, and hatred. Violet or indigo can also aid these problems.
Ginkgo biloba, milk thistle, dandelion and ginger herbs are good to use for this chakra.
Getting rid of the ego is technically impossible but everything is possible. It takes mind discipline you have to realize that most of this society goes under the assumption of auto-pilot. They let the mind control the body. You have to free your mind from thoughts that do not serve you. You have to question yourself, you have to ask why am i having these thoughts? why am i angry in the first place? Why am i only thinking of myself when i should be thinking of others? Why? You have to learn to detach yourself from your thoughts. I know it sounds almost silly but you have to not take your thoughts seriously. Your mind will try to control you, it puts you in loops, constantly, i’m not good enough, i didn’t do this right, i’m awful at this, i’m not as pretty as her, etc. Your mind creates an illusion of fear between the past/future oriented self which isn’t even REAL. IT DOESN”T EXIST. You are alive, here right now, within the present moment, forever, eternally. NOW. Not tomorrow, you are here now. Past and future is illusion that is caused by the plaguing of the mind, the ultimate truth is in realizing that all you need to do is surrender into yourself. RID YOUR THOUGHTS. LET GO. EXPRESS YOUR EMOTIONS. DON”T FIGHT IT. When we think too much, what happens? You start worrying and then when you start worrying your mind goes into a loop, it’s kinda like one of those brainstorming-bubbles you use in school sometimes. It’s like one minute i am perferctly content and happy then the next i’m worried about how i’m going to have enough money with the hours i have, then i’m worried about how this gas will last until next week, then i’m worried about food, then…you build anxieties, your mind racing, you don’t know what to do so you keep thinking, but then if i can’t figure out how i can get this money then i’m screwed, i’m going to starve, and if i starve, then i’ll get sick and if i get sick then i’ll have to go to the doctor, and blah blah blah blah blah….Maybe that’s an over-emphasis but you get my point. you get STUCK. plain and simple. Eckhart Tolle is a fucking genius. He teaches you how thoughts can be poison, you will only find inner peace if you embrace the positive NOW and unleash yourself by surrendering into the present where thoughts become silence. I highly recommend his book, his lectures, simple youtube search, anything by this guy. He’s EXCELLENT about ridding yourself of Ego.
Because that’s what ascension is truly about, the battle of the mind vs. the heart we’re creating the bridge between the two. Transcendence. Merging the ego into the SOUL. Transcending the ego into the soul. When you get stuck in ego, you lower your vibrations because the thoughts will consume you. you will never be good enough in ego thinking. If you move to soul thinking, you will learn to love yourself, be respectful of others, find truth in others, find peace within yourself again. I don’t know why i got so CAPsy on you. sorry it’s been a weird day lol
Hope this helps
much love and healing light <3
