In this episode, we dive into the following:

  • Understanding rage as a natural part of our emotional spectrum 

  • Societal factors that lead to the suppression of rage and mismanagement of anger

  • How to start addressing suppressed anger

  • How living intentionally can reduce the amount of rage that builds up in the body

  • Finding a community that supports your full emotional range

In the labyrinth of self-discovery, emotions often stand as the guiding stars, leading us through the twists and turns of our journey. One emotion, however, frequently shrouded in stigma and misconception, takes center stage in the insightful conversation as we are joined by Bianca Sprague of Bebo Mia. This conversation intricately weaves together the threads of intuition, emotional decluttering, and community connection, offering a profound exploration of the transformative power of rage and the importance of authentic self-expression.


Embarking on the Journey of Intuition:

Bianca Sprague encourages a deep dive into intuition, urging individuals to attune themselves to the subtle whispers of their inner selves. Central to this is the recognition of "hell yes" and "hell no" moments – visceral responses that act as compass points on the map of authentic living. The practice involves not only acknowledging these intuitive responses but aligning one's actions with the authentic desires that emanate from within.


Decluttering the Emotional Landscape:

Much like the act of decluttering a physical space, the journey toward authenticity requires a deliberate process of emotional decluttering. Identifying and eliminating elements that drain energy and contribute to dysregulation form the essence of this practice. By distinguishing between what sparks joy and what kindles rage, individuals can liberate themselves from societal expectations and lay the groundwork for a life steeped in genuineness.


Embracing Rage: A Reclamation of Power:

Rage, often vilified and suppressed, emerges as a potent force for positive change in Sprague's narrative. It is reframed as a natural response to societal oppression and an essential catalyst for transformation. The call is not to stifle or redirect rage but to understand it and channel it towards constructive avenues. This involves authentic self-expression – a reclamation of personal power in the face of adversity.


Community Building in Authenticity:

At the heart of this journey lies the creation or discovery of communities that wholeheartedly embrace the entire spectrum of emotions. Sprague underscores the dynamic nature of relationships, recognizing that individuals traversing this path may experience shifts in connections. The pillars of supportive relationships are founded on mutual understanding, the capacity to hold space for one another, and a commitment to taking action, even if that action is as simple as acknowledging the struggle.


Overthrowing the Patriarchy: A Collective Endeavor:

Beyond personal transformation, Sprague issues a call for collective action in dismantling oppressive structures. She envisions a community of aware, angry individuals united in a radical commitment to overthrowing the patriarchy. Through the process of unlearning societal norms, individuals can liberate themselves from conditioned responses and actively contribute to societal change.


The journey towards authentic self-expression and community connection, as articulated by Bianca Sprague, is an intricate exploration involving intuition, emotional decluttering, and the transformative power of rage. It's not merely a personal odyssey but a collective movement toward dismantling oppressive systems. By cultivating supportive communities that value authenticity and engaging in the continuous process of unlearning societal norms, individuals can find empowerment, liberation, and a profound connection to their true selves in this ongoing adventure.
