Anger Management - Positive Thinking


We are happiest and feel best about ourselves when we are fulfilling the needs of daily living in a positive way; doing something creative, and being kind in our relationships.

By being kind we take positive control of our mind and its impulses, rather than letting our mind control us as it does in an outburst of anger, for example.

Will power to follow through on what we know is best takes courage and energy; energy available to us through positive thinking.

The usefulness of controlling our mind to act with kindness means that we can remain easeful in seeming difficulties. And, through positive clear thinking and acting for the good, a workable solution to any problem can be created.

Guided Meditation

To start, sit comfortably, eyes closed, hands folded in lap - or recline comfortably, eyes closed, arms slightly away from sides, hands relaxed.

Begin regulated breathing and continue throughout the meditation with a pattern such as 2 counts to breathe in and 2 counts to breathe out.

Visualize yourself walking along a country road - up ahead there is a group of kids playing with a dodge ball in the field right next to the road.

One child suddenly decides to take the ball and runs away with it. The remaining youngsters look on with varying reactions.

One starts shouting for the ball snatcher to come back; one starts cursing; another runs and catches up with the ball snatcher and asks her to return with the ball to the game so they can all share the ball and enjoy each others' company.

Looking at the situation playing out it is easy to see which method of reacting to the same event was effective - not the shouting; not the cursing. It was talking over the situation that brought back harmony.

Walking further along the road make the resolve that when home again and faced with a situation where you have a choice of reaction, that the cooperative solution is what you'll choose.

Now, open your eyes, stretch out, and keep your new resolve in mind.

"Positive attitudes
Lead to positive thinking
Mastery of mind."
