Here’s a calming, powerful mantra to heal anger. Simply repeat it when someone says mean things or does negative things to you.
I learned this calming mantra for anger from my 3 year old son (Ari).
There was one kid who was calling everyone poopy-head.
When he called Ari this name, Ari told me he told him…
Basically Ari was not accepting these words and actions.
Ari was not allowing these negative words to be received in his heart, mind, spirit.
If you’re an adult, you can use this mantra to heal anger as well.
You simply do not need to say this mantra for anger out loud to the other person’s face – as Ari was doing.
You can silently say “NO thank you” – as a calming mantra to yourself.
Trust me: You will feel a lot better.
A few weeks after Ari started his “no thank you mantra,” he and I were watching a children’s TV show. One of the characters said “Return to sender!” to someone who said something mean to them.
Ari and I talked about how this phrase “Return to sender!” might also serve as another way to keep negativity away when someone says or does something hurtful. You can take a moment to think to yourself, “Return to sender” – then refuse to allow their cruelty get to you.
But… my personal favorite mantra for anger will remain Ari’s “no thank you!”
