Ironically, giving ourselves a chance to feel our anger is sometimes the most powerful way to let the anger go. This meditation requires you to think about something that makes you angry. Please proceed with caution if you are in crisis or actively dealing with trauma. Please ensure you have the time and space to listen all the way to the end of this meditation. …
