Anger manifests three ways in the physical body - as pain, as rash, as infection. Frustration is a form of anger that, when held for long periods of time within the system, may turn to skin rashes. Skin rashes come in many shapes and sizes including, psoriasis, eczema, poison ivy, acne, itchy skin, etc. No matter how your body chooses to display your rash, the truth is that the manifestation is simply anger that you have stuck in your system. Frustration is stored in our liver, and frustration can lead to resentments. Resentments are stored in our spleen. Since the liver and spleen are the body's filtration systems, when one or both are under stress through overuse, the only way for the body to detoxify this anger or these poisons is through the skin. So it's not a bad thing that the body is using your skin as a filtration system. Otherwise, we would self-poison.
In order to heal skin rash, the emotion of anger must be healed. I am going to list the anger flowers below. The secret to healing anger is to transform it back to joy, love or forgiveness. This is dependent upon what caused it to begin with. When you begin to experience the vibration of the flowers, you will find that you will be able to "see" more clearly what is stored from the past in your system. Many times, this stored negative energy goes back to our childhood.
Let me take you one step further.. in truth, we are spiritual beings having a physical experience. As physical beings, our truths (or who we truly are) are beings embraced by love. Anger creates an imbalance from who we are. Our spiritual self does everything possible to show us our anger through the emotional state and encourage us to come back "home" to love. But as physical beings, we have been taught to become more comfortable in our negative states of anger and so we choose to remain in that state and hold on to grudges, bitterness, resentments, etc.. However, what we have failed to realize is that we cannot put out anything to someone else that does not directly affect us personally.
When we put out anger, we receive pain, rash or infection back. The physical body is the means through which the spiritual body speaks to us. Physical symptoms are body language. Once you understand your own body language, you are now in a position to begin to heal yourself.
It is not that the skin condition is not real. It is certainly as real as any other illness we create within ourselves. However, now you can begin to look at it from a different angle.
Now you can begin to change that which the spirit is asking of you, which is to transform your anger back to joy, your impatience back to patience, your intolerance back to tolerance, your resentments back to forgiveness and your hate back to love. These are the five states of anger: anger, impatience, intolerance, resentment and hate. This knowledge that I am sharing with you has come directly from those people who I have worked with and who have experienced psoriasis or eczema and have actually healed it through the emotional/spiritual states of love and forgiveness.
Sometimes it is not easy to see ourselves for who we have become. The shift to a negative state of being occurs so gradually, that it becomes "normal" to ourselves and those around us. And although this may be considered "normal" in the physical world, it is certainly not normal in the spiritual world. Once you create the physical symptoms, now you have to help heal them as well. Along with skin rash, a body that is full of different types of angers may experience tiredness, inability to think or focus, headaches, muscle pains, colon cramps, cold sores, sinus and/or bronchial infections
Eliminating the foods that aggravate our digestive organs such as the liver, spleen, stomach and gall bladder is essential so your body can begin to heal itself. These foods are always consistently the same including fried food, hydrogenated oils, pork, cow dairy products, city water, artificial ingredients including colors, preservatives and sweeteners, oranges and orange juice as well as caffeine and chocolate as well as refined white flours and sugars. With skin rashes, I have found that the deeper cleansing herbs, such as yellow dock and burdock root capsules tend to be more effective. With severe rashes, a combination Blood Cleansing formula might be even more effective. Michael's makes one called "Blood Detoxification Formula and HerbPharm makes one called Red Clover-Stillingia.
I have also found that Vitamin D cream is helpful externally on the areas where the rash has developed. Bach Rescue Remedy Cream may also be helpful in some cases.
After you cleanse the liver/spleen you might consider Milk Thistle to begin to strengthen these body parts. Remember that the liver and spleen hold the emotions of anger and resentment. See the connection? Everything is connected. We are not separate from ourselves or from one another. The great truth that "what you do unto others, you do unto yourself" has more meaning than we know. What you put out, you get back in the physical body. How else would we pay attention? How else could our spirits speak to us?
Another great truth is, what you want for yourself, you wish for others. Because in the end, you get it back. This is energetic. Begin to think energetic and you can create anything you want in life. Think it. Speak it. Create it. It is really that simple. We just have forgotten how to practice it. And as we all know from another great truth, practice makes perfect.
The following is a listing of the flowers used for anger in the Bach flower system. Be open and honest with yourself to see how you were taught to deal with your anger. The flowers are one of the tools we can use to open up the channels so we can begin to see and eventually recreate how we deal with anger. Anger should never be stored, but instead it should be transformed back to love and forgiveness. Always begin with the flower you see in yourself at this very moment. As you heal the present, whatever is underneath from the past will begin to reveal it self to you and then you can "see" more clearly what your next step or flower might be. It is not unusual for those who manifest skin rashes to have multiple layers of anger that need to be dealt with.
The anger flowers are:
Suppress and deny true feelings.. feelings of mental torment. Anger is hidden and not addressed. The agrimony personality makes light of issues instead of facing them. They tend to become the addictive personality type using drugs, alcohol, chocolate, sugars, carbohydrates, gambling, shopping, etc. The agrimony is always looking outwardly for something to make them happy as they have not dealt with the issue of their happiness from inside.
Demand obedience or allegiance from others.. control and direct. Assertive to point of aggression.. my way or no way. Strong willed that overpowers others.
Aloof and socially distant.. measures others according to social status, economic background.. may not want to associate with those beneath you. Easily annoyed when working with others. Leave me alone!
Hold on to past injustices or misfortunes.. bitterness & resentment. Victim role.. always being persecuted or unfairly punished.. emotionally inflexible.. difficult to forgive others or be accepting and yielding.
Tense, irritable, easily impatient and argumentative. Take over for others, finish their sentences or complete tasks because others are too slow. Rushing ahead of experience, not able to enjoy or pay attention to the present.
Set high standard for others.. critical or judgement toward behavior & performance of others or of oneself.. must be surrounded by perfection.
Feelings of jealousy, rivalry, suspicious or vengefulness. Loss of feeling of compassion for others.. Feelings of alienation, mistrust or hostility. Struggle or compete in order to receive love or recognition, feeling it is rightfully yours.
