Today’s Miracle Moment Is About the Miracle of Laughter…
As we’ve been making these Miracle Moments for you, we’ve had so many laughs in the process. So, we decided to create a Miracle Moment especially for you on the miracle of laughter because we want you to join us in laughing!
There’s a lot of research and evidence about the power of laughter to heal.
Laughter creates endorphins, the feel-good chemicals that help us feel great after a good laugh.
Laughter is a big pattern interrupter that takes you out of your old stories that clamp you down and keep you in a rut.
Laughter absolutely confuses the mind as it’s hard to think when you’re laughing; this opens up your energy field for joy to come through. So, when you can, just laugh at yourself, laugh at your thoughts, laugh at how seriously you’re taking things.
Why get caught up in the moment with such intensity when you can often laugh it off and recognize that most things work out in the end anyway?
There’s a form of yoga called laughter yoga that originated in India. The last time I (Marci) travelled to India, we were riding in a boat along the sacred Ganges river at 6:30 a.m. All of a sudden, we heard roaring laughter from a big group of people bathing in this holy river. We boated over to them to see what they were doing and they invited us to join them in laughter yoga.
We’ve since taken a few laughter yoga classes, and once the laughter gets started, you can’t help but join in.
It’s great to talk about laughter, but it’s much better to do it! So please join us in about 20 seconds of laughter for no reason.
If you feel silly doing it, even more reason to do it. Why pass up an opportunity for a good laugh? After laughing for about 20 seconds, notice how you feel in your body. That’s the endorphin high.
We’ll close today with a Jewish proverb …
“As soap is to the body, so laughter is to the soul.”
So, let’s clean our souls. Let’s scrub them down with some good yummy laughter.
