3 Magical Ways to "Chill Out" When Your Temper Gets the Best of You

If you aren't signed up to be receiving our newsletter right to your email, then there's no time like the present. Go to the Esoteric School website and get signed up now. You can also see many of our past newsletters there. Chilling out when your temper flares is an example of the everyday issues that magic can help you with. Here's some of the ways we've shared in our newsletters that magic can help you with anger. 

Give It To Your Fridge
Your refrigerator can do more than keep your food chilled. It can be a magical tool to help you chill when you are angry. Since anger is a fire energy, a large appliance like a refrigerator, makes a great ground for magically flowing this excess fire energy out safely. Here's all you have to do. 

1. Lay down on the floor in front of your refrigerator and put the bottom of your feet on it or you can just stand up in front of it and hug it. 

2. Feel your anger and put all your attention on it. 

3. Feel yourself pushing all that anger out of your body and into the refrigerator. 

4. Fire energy flows quickly so a minute or two of flowing the fire energy should do it. 

5. As soon as you feel the anger has subsided, stop flowing energy and step away from the refrigerator. 

6. Take a few moments to check in with how you feel, then light a Sun Yellow candle, put your hands over the flame (not so close you get burned though), and pull in the healing fire energy from the flame for a minute or two to replace the anger energy you pushed out. 

Firebowl Burn
This magical technique lets you literally burn your anger away. Just be sure to observe fire safety precautions while doing it, then follow these steps. 

1. Gather a Sun Yellow candle, paper or wooden matches, a firebowl, paper and a pen. 

2. Sit in the South and face North with all these materials in front of you. 

3. Light the Sun Candle and charge it by putting your hands near the candle flame and saying the verse:
     "Child of Wonder,
    Child of Flame,
    Nourish My Spirit,
    And Protect My Aim!"
4. Charge the Firebowl by adding pine resin and sage to the lit charcoal disk and saying the verse:
"Fire and Air where you are cast,
Let no spell nor adverse purpose last,
Not in accord with me!
Clear from my life these unwanted matters,
Send far from my life these negative factors!
Thus my will, so it be!"
5. Next take the pen and paper and start writing down everything that you are angry about or any other negative thoughts or feelings you have. Write as fast and furious as you can to get all your anger out on the paper. Write until you literally run out of steam (fire and water energy). 

6. Now take the papers and place them in the firebowl. If the firebowl is not big enough to safely hold the size of papers you will be burning, move the whole operation to a sink or other place that is safe. 

7. Take a few moments to do whatever you need to in order to move the anger out of yourself – ask for angels or guides to help, do deep breathing or take some silent time. 

8. Light the papers with your matches and let them burn in the firebowl while you watch your anger go up in smoke. 

Let Apache Tears Take it Away
Apache Tears are black obsidian stones that magically open a doorway to the half worlds. You can send your anger into the half worlds using an Apache Tear like this. 

1. Hold an Apache Tear stone in your dominant hand (hand you naturally point with). 

2. Concentrate on your anger and feel yourself begin to push it out through your hand and into the stone. 

3. The Apache Tear acts as a conduit to send the anger into the half worlds and doesn't store it like some other types of stones do. In the half worlds fire energy can be re-used. 

There you have it. Three ways to magically deal with and release your anger. Signup for the newsletter so you don't miss out on great magical tips like these.

Sudden Changes at Work Got You in a Panic? These Simple Magical Strategies Can Help

We humans often don't handle change well, but change is inevitable so having some simple magical strategies in place can be a big help. You are most likely aware that the way you feel or think now determines what thoughts and feelings you will be able to access. If you are comfortable with a situation at work and suddenly things change, then panic or negative thoughts or feelings about those changes will only bring you more of the same. Think about it this way, if you are happy right now isn't it easier to access more happy thoughts? If you are angry, negative or down in the dumps, isn't it easier to take on more of those feelings than to try to switch to happy ones? The obvious solution to this dilemma is to change how you think or feel, but that is often easier said than done. Instead of trying to completely change your whole outlook, it is often easier to start by making just one small change in your perspective or thoughts. If you can make a small change you will shift the path your thoughts and feelings are taking. Using a small change is effective because it causes less resistance in us. Doing something that makes us uncomfortable or doubt ourselves can cause resistance to new ways or ideas.

But what do you do for those times when you just can't seem to make even a small change in how you think or feel about a situation or person? For most of us, our jobs make up a large percentage of where we spend our time and energy. We are invested in our work situations and of course have a preference for things to go smoothly. When a sudden change of personnel, ways of doing things, policies, procedures or anything else that directly affects us happens at work, it can be very stressful and cause panic. For these times, having a couple of simple magical techniques to rid yourself of those fire energies that panic, stress, anxiety, and anger are symptoms of can help get us to the point where we can start making those small changes in thoughts and feelings. 

Grounding Out Fire Energy
Here is a story that is one of many you will find in our first Kindle book, Learn How to Do Witchcraft Rituals and Spells with Your Bare Hands. This story is from one of our former students and it offers a simple magical solution to dealing with Fire energy. In this case he was dealing with anger, but this same magical technique can be used with any Fire energy, so anxiety, panic, and stress can all be dealt with in this way. 
I had recently begun taking the Basic Magic class to learn new paradigms in my observation of "reality." I was hoping it would offer me more options and choices in my life. 
One of the best techniques I learned was how to safely ground out Fire energy, which often manifests, for me, in the form of anger. One day, when I was nearing explosion in an argument with my wife, rather than continue on that path toward rage, I tried a magical technique to ground out anger. 
I stretched out on the floor, put my bare feet on the stove/range, and flowed red/orange (anger) out of me and into the stove until I felt very different. Afterward, I felt much calmer. I was able to think, "Okay, I don't need to blow up in anger. There are lots of other choices." I did not escalate the fight any further. 
The change was wonderful. It was a change as much in the energy as in the dialogue with my wife. My wife is really sensitive to energy. After I had flowed out the red/orange, she said, "OK, something is different." We ended up tabling the discussion for later instead of continuing the fight. 
I was so glad that we learned to ground out anger by sending that energy into a major electrical appliance like the refrigerator or the stove/range. I did not actually feel the anger leave me, but suddenly I felt the effect of it leaving. At first, I was steaming mad, but the floor and range were cold. During the flowing process, suddenly I felt a sensation like, "Ahhhh..." and the anger left me. 
If I told my friends about this experience, they would laugh so hard and ask me, "What planet are you from?" I really don't care! These magical practices work great!
-- Mike
When you go into panic mode or it feels like life is "falling apart", another useful magical solution is Rooting. This magical technique is simple, quick and takes really no magical background or knowledge to do. Rooting is a way to connect with Mother Earth. Situations that cause panic and anxiety are filled with Air, Fire, and Water energies. This combination often lends itself to fear, reactivity, negativity, and other junky emotions. Taking on Earth energy helps stabilize you, mineralize your body and balance out these other elemental energies. Here's how to do a simple rooting ritual. 

1. Sit or stand, whichever is more comfortable for you as long as your feet are on the ground. You will extend "roots" from the bottom of your feet so they need to have good contact with the ground. 

2. Extend your roots out of your feet, through the carpet or tile, into the sub floor and down into the Earth. Just visualize in your mind's eye or "see" roots growing from your feet and reaching into the Earth. If you are in a multi-level building, you will need to go through each level until you reach the Earth. If you are wearing shoes with thick soles, you may have to extend the roots out the sides of your shoes to avoid the soles.

3. Once your roots reach the Earth, keep extending them down through the topsoil and deeper layers until you reach bedrock. You will feel the bedrock as a more solid sensation than burrowing through the soil.

4. When you reach bedrock, dig your roots in, and lock them in.

5. Be aware of your breathing and with each exhalation, push excess tension, anger, frustration, sadness, distraction, or other unwanted energies through your roots into the bedrock. The Earth will easily accept these energies.

6. As you inhale, pull up minerals and energies from the Earth for stability and balance.

7. Once you feel relaxed and nourished, pull your roots back up into your body. Just see the roots retracting and going back into your feet. If you stand up or move your feet without pulling in your roots, you will feel a slight "popping" sensation, and your body might be sore for a few days. Pull your roots totally back into your feet before walking away or picking up your feet. 

Changes and the stress or anxiety they bring happen to all of us at some point in life. You don't have to live with it though. Take control of your own life, thoughts and feelings with these simple magical strategies. You will find lots more simple magical techniques like these in our Kindle Witchcraft Spell Books series that will give you the magical solutions to get what you want out of life.
