A key aspect to the Abundance process as an internal process is the clearing of energy and emotions from the liver. In a holistic sense abundance has everything to do with being on our path,having direction in life and clearing out feeling of anger and frustration. The liver is the largest organ in the body, it works hard day and night processing toxins from the environment and self generated emotional toxins. In the Chinese medical system the liver is responsible for direction, life purpose and holds the emotions of resentment, rage, anger and bitterness.
With this new awareness lets look at the negative emotions associated with the liver and what you can do to help move forward. Resentment is a highly toxic emotion and major impediments on our path of right livelihood and general well being. Resentment is anger which is stuck in the past. It is common for resentment to be directed at the wealthy and those better off than us. This perceived unfairness is a self generated story, which drains our energy and wastes our precious time. This energy could be directed towards our goals. Bitterness is the active part of resentment, it is how the long held energy gets expressed and over time it can start to dominate the personality. When bitterness becomes dominant in the personality we lose our connection to grace and gratitude. Grace and gratitude both keep us connected to the flow of the divine in our lives.
When anger is not expressed it can easily turn to rage. Rage clouds our vision and prevents us from seeing situations clearly. Anger and rage can be used as fuel on our path. In the tantric system goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of abundance loves to receive our rage and anger as an offering. This speaks to the potential alchemy of emotions, how anger and rage can be transformed into something beauty.
The emotions we are talking about all block the flow of liver chi, stagnant liver chi prevents us from moving forward in ways that we would like. There are a few key Bach essences that help to transform the emotions of resentment, bitterness, anger and rage.
