Wayne Dyer is a famous author and metaphysician. He has written many wonderful books on conscious thought, creation and not making excuses. He is a powerful and lovely man. I have met and worked with Wayne in person. My comments about how Wayne feels about anger need to be prefaced with; just because I don't agree with one thing he says, does not make Wayne a bad person. He has helped millions of people around the world.

One of the things that I have heard Wayne say repeatedly is that the emotion of anger is negative. I can understand where Wayne is coming from as anger vibrates at a very low rate. However, if you are feeling fear, anger vibrates higher than fear. Sometimes we need to express anger to get out of a low vibration of depression or fear. Anger is an emotion that our society allows us to exhibit. Perhaps it is not as widely accepted as joy or peace, we feel okay with it, because we usually grew up with a parent or sibling that expressed anger freely and got away with it.

Even Esther and Jerry Hicks talk about "rockets of desire" when they are teaching Law Of Attraction. Let's look at the word and energy of desire. Desire actually vibrates below anger at a rate of 125 according to Dr. David Hawkins in his book, Power Versus Force. Shame vibrates at 20, grief at 50, fear vibrates at 100 and anger is at 150. Choosing to express anger is not a bad thing. It gets us from point A to B. Anger is energy and helps us move out of a lower vibration.

In my book, Odyssey Victim to Victory I talk about how depressed I was at the end of my last marriage (Chapter 10 - Make Believe Soul Mates). I was so disappointed when my husband rejected me and began having an affair. When I was able to express the anger of being betrayed I was able to pop the cork on the pain lying smothered by the depression. When we do not express anger we become depressed. Anger is there as a guide to our emotional state. It also serves to show us when our boundaries are being crossed. If you are wondering why you are feeling anger, look to see if someone (especially a spouse or partner) has crossed your boundaries.

I love Wayne Dyer. I hope you will tell him next time you see him!
