when i was young, i was in a bad situation, and wanted to make myself sad.  i think i was making some kind of prayer because i was angry at 'God'.  i think i was wanting to be evil in a sense of the 'Devil'.  i felt my head get kind of warm, and kind of was startled.  could this be a physical thing, something about being male, or some other thing that you can explain?  i've always thought of myself as neurotic and sometimes with rage.  can you recommend some kind of paganism or practice that would counter this stuff?

Do you still get the feelings you describe? Cause when saying "when I was young" it seems as if it's been some time ago.

Having strong and conflicting emotions, if that is what you're describing, could have been caused by puberty. Since I'm female, I can't really answer your question if it's a male thing.

I'd suggest meditations and moderate exercise like yoga to counter rage, but then again, I might need to have some further information on your emotions to give a better advide.

I don't know how old you are, but my husband, father, brothers, and male friends have all described their lives as existing in a sort of cloudy, uncomfortable haze, characterized by bouts of rage and extreme emotion, from puberty until age 25 or so. I'm not sure if it's a brain formation issue, or a hormonal issue, or what, but if you're still a teenager or a young twenty-something I suspect you'll grow out of it. I don't think a stray prayer made in the heat of the moment would have the kind of long-lasting impact you seem to describe.

If you feel sad on a regular basis to the point where those feelings consistently and regularly are negatively impacting your life, I'd suggest finding someone to talk to about it, like a licensed psychotherapist.
