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 from my 3 year old son (Ari Salmansohn).
Ari says: “NO thank you” or “No Thanks!” to the mean kids in his class.
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.
You can simply silently say “NO thank you” – as a mantra to yourself – either when you think of a person who’s harmed you in words or actions.
Or you can say “NO thank you” at the speed of life – when someone is presently harming you in words or actions.
Ari and I talked about how this phrase might also serve as another way to keep negativity away. But my personal favorite will remain his “no thank you!”
