We’re Almost Out of Lower Consciousness in Anger
ANGER calibrates at 150 or 10 to the 150th power on the Map of Consciousness®
Anger “feels good” when it comes up from the lower levels. It “feels good” because you, in fact, have more power in your consciousness to move up the Map.
Unfortunately for the ego, you have to let go of anger to come into true power at the level of courage at 200 on the Map.
Anger is a useful emotion sometimes as it helps you stand up for yourself. This type of anger would possibly be calibrated as honest dissent (LOC 215).
So, you need to be aware of what anger feels like and the useful purpose.
To be angry and grateful as a predominant level of consciousness is detrimental to all of your life, including:
- Career and Jobs,
- Family Harmony,
- Physical Health, and
- Financial Wellbeing.
It’s inadvisable to hang out here.
A good indicator that your anger is getting out of hand and bringing you down the tubes is feeling hatred.
This happened to me and I realized I needed to turn it around before I became hateful and hurtful to others.
I am not a hateful person by nature (in fact it is NOT the nature of any of us!).
The way out of anger is learning how to let go of it in a conscious and willing way.
There are so many people “Googling” “how to let go of anger”, I did an entire episode on Dr. Hawkins’s mechanism of letting go here.
Many of us, including myself, are taught to suppress and repress anger. In fact, I prided myself on not being angered by much of anything.
Once you decide to walk a more loving, accepting, constructive path in life, anger and rage will rear their ugly little head!
I have experienced this firsthand. I never imagined I had so much anger and rage brewing within me.
Fortunately, I learned how to let go of anger from Dr. Hawkins’s bestselling book Letting Go, The Pathway to Surrender. It’s been so effective for me I created Your Weekly Dose of Higher Consciousness podcast and videocast to address the “letting go” process.
When you learn how to let go of any block or obstacle to a higher consciousness you will feel a significant shift in consciousness, an awakening of sorts.
It comes as a relief and a step into some freedom.
Be Aware: When you release anger from your energy system, you no longer attract experiences to trigger anger. There isn’t any energetic “match” in your consciousness to invite it in.
I kid you not!
“Pride Goeth Before the Fall”
Pride goeth before the fall has context now
I think Jesus, or whomever, said this quote knew what they were talking about!
PRIDE is the first level of lower consciousness at 175 or 10 to the 175th power.
How do you know you’ve fallen down the slippery slope of PRIDE?
Listen to yourself.
Are you feeling demanding & scornful?
Are you wanting to be right and make others wrong?
Are you over-inflating the truth about yourself and your life?
These are are all indicators that you are stuck in PRIDE in some area of your life.
PRIDE is a dominant level in our world. Because it is, you may have some belief that PRIDE is a “good thing”.
To put PRIDE into context, the energy of the “typical politician” is 180 on the Map. PRIDE is their “Field” of consciousness.
At this level, it is destructive, divisive, negatively oriented, downward-pulling, and it “juices” the core of the narcissistic ego.
There’s no “gas in the tank” to get where you want to go at this level.
You need to learn how to let go of this as well.
But let me share a story with you…when I learned how to let go of anger and felt myself in the energy of RIGHTEOUS PRIDE, I knew I was making progress!
In the absence of the awareness of the Map of Consciousness I could have easily stayed in RIGHTEOUS PRIDE thinking I was “all that” and heading on the “right track”.
Now don’t confuse Love of Country and love and appreciation of others or yourself be mistaken for this type of pride. Love and appreciation is the level of consciousness of LOVE consciousness and above.
Again, we all need to learn how to let go of the lower levels of consciousness and remove the obstacles to who we really are.
COURAGE is the gateway to higher consciousness and true power. That journey begins here.
