The vibe field with the most physical energy in the Animal Body Vortex is this field of anger, aggression, and hatred. The vibe field of anger is useful in the animal world as survival energy. It has energy for flight or fight. Instead of withdrawing like the vibe field of fear, this field expands to look larger and intimidate others.
Anger, aggression, and hatred are life-denying in that the physiological response, the soup of hormones and body chemistry, is damaging to your health.
If you are resonating in fields above the vibe field of anger, why would you choose to lower your vibe to anger? It’s not like you choose to totally immerse yourself in it. It’s that you add that note on the organ to the music that is you. You’re not really leaving your previous vibe field, you’re adopting a new vibe, adding to the notes you know.
You might want to “get angry” so as to energize your physical body to sustain an effort to accomplish a task such as when you are threatened by any animal, humans included, that does not stop attacking you after you have used other measures of a higher vibe such as gifting, reason, or flattery. For example, Michael Phelps, the world class competitive swimmer, said that he uses anger to increase his energy. He could have the energy without calling it anger, but that’s what worked for him.
Imagine the vibe field surrounding a crowd of people who have joined in anger. It is impossible to ignore. It permeates the air. You can almost taste it.
For most people, sudden anger passes quickly. But some people stay in this vibe field forever in a vicious cycle of disagreeing, getting angry, fighting, losing, and getting angry again.
What you do with that energy, how you direct it, can lead to a higher energy field. If it doesn’t, then when the energy dissipates, you can easily fall into a lower energy field. Eventually then, if the issue is not resolved, “anger simmers down into resentment”.
Rage is allowing the anger to be the only vibe, ignoring any self-restraint and having no rationality.
The spectrum of emotions in the vibe field of anger and aggression ranges from being mildly annoyed to a hateful rage.
Now I’m mad! Everybody is so annoying! I just want to break something! I hate this feeling!
Arrrggghhh!!! Why does everyone lie to me? Somebody give me the truth! I am so angry! I hate being here!
The yin side of this vibe field keeps its distance and watches what’s happening, making sure that no real damage is done. The yang side wants to kill something.
The fish are very aggressive down here. They are prodding me and antagonizing me. I see a light above. Come, let’s go higher.

Pride says, “I’m better than that! I won’t let myself be angry.”

“It is helpful to see that the inner ego has become addicted to the artificial ‘high’ of anger, with its puffed-up animal characteristics. It is also educational to select a successful role model and pattern oneself in accord with those traits, such as determination, commitment, skill, and integrity. One does not become a success by envying and vilifying it but by imitating it. Thus, the angry person has to go back and make up for what was missing in their own education and development.” ~ David R Hawkins, MD, PhD
Treat your anger with the utmost respect and tenderness, for it is no other than yourself. Do not suppress it; simply be aware of it. Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things, they are transformed. When you are aware that you are angry, your anger is transformed.

“Hate! Get Thee Hence!”
Raise the Vibe
What is to be done about this anger? You can use the energy of higher vibes to release the field of anger.
The field of competition and control is of great assistance to many people. They utilize a meme, whether they know it or not, that says, “I’m better than this. I can’t let myself be angry.” Remember, the higher the vibe, the more power there is in it. Rising from anger into competition and control is a good first step, but it will leave you in denial. There is even more power in the higher vibe of courage. When you acknowledge the truth of the situation, you enter the higher vibe of courage. Feel the excitement of facing the challenge.
While you have the energy of anger, use it! Focus the energy. Anger has a lack of focus. Better focus reduces anger. Through meditation practice the mind becomes better at focusing during times when it is needed. As preparation, anytime before you get into a field of anger, make sure you can align with your best intentions, even when blinded by the firestorm. While immersed in the field of anger, bring your attention to your focus. Use the energy of anger to bear down on that focus. When you do, the field of anger dissipates.
Use the vibe field of acceptance to transcend anger. Utilize wisdom and understanding to find acceptance. Wisdom says the correct actions are constructive rather than combative. Over time, simply observing your resonance with anger is enough. Your inner wisdom will know what to do with it.
When you become a parent, you may discover many changes in how you deal with anger. You recall the fear you had when your parents expressed anger. You might think, “I am going to be a better parent. I am going to watch my anger. I don’t want my children to see what I saw.”
Being immersed in a field of anger or resentment is like being underwater. The wise fish around you are saying, “There has GOT to be something better than this. We deserve better than this. Take a deep breath, close your eyes, and let’s bubble up to the next level as we slowly let the air out.”
Hale Dwoskin and David R Hawkins say the same thing. Welcome anger. Let’s have fun with being angry right now. Hawkins tells a story about his first experience with road rage and how he got off on it, keeping it up until he started laughing.
