When was the last time you laughed spontaneously and out loud with gusto? Laughter is a powerful, healing energy that connects us with the free-spirited, most loving parts of ourselves and deepens our connection with others. There are even organizations dedicated to that healing quality of laughter by offering regular meetings for “laughter yoga”. People get together and laugh in community for a half hour. The joy of others expands the joy of each person, and the feeling increases exponentially. So, if laughter is that uplifting and highly infectious, why don’t we do it more often?
In our daily lives, we allow ourselves to become focused on getting things done with certain results. We think about the reasons for doing things and the logic of how to get them done. In other words, we often function primarily from our mental body. But laughter helps us of let go of the mental body and connect with our Soul consciousness. Because in a state of laughter, we are closest to our natural state of being, fully present in the moment with love and joy. There is no question of who laughs better or when we’re going to be done laughing and get on with more important things. We are in the pure experience of a higher frequency state of being.
Years ago, I was sent a link to a video about the power of laughter. You can find it on You Tube at Buddha on the Train It’s an 8-minute French video about the infectious state of joy and togetherness that comes from the pure and simple act of laughing. You don’t even need a reason to laugh because it’s not about whether something is funny, it’s about tapping into that pure state of joy which is always within us.
I invite you to take a few minutes and enjoy the pure, healing power of laughter within you. Go ahead, laugh! (Hee, hee).
