Have you ever been in the pit of hell and had a loved one reach out
to you; listen for a spell and then try their hardest to get a crack of
a smile to penetrate your firm porcelain face?
A great belly laugh that comes after you’ve weathered the storms
of pain can be akin to the ‘cigarette after sex’-satisfying and uplifting.
I remember taking a laughter yoga class (you will see a woman
do a TedTalk in a video coming up-doing just that with a huge audience)
may years ago-when it just began blooming as a form of healing-and
in this room full of strangers we were all instantly connected by the
contagious nature of our laughter. It was as though our formerly
impenetrable barriers faded instantaneously. It was like going to a
comedy movie. If you were to watch that same movie at home alone;
would as much laughter flow out of you as if you watched it at a theatre
or with a friend or two? No, likely not; because the magical thing about
laughter is its fanatically predictable trait-it is one of the most contagious
emotions out there.
I once heard a woman speak who had recently recovered from very
severe cancer-she felt that watching comedy movies with her life
partner and laughing hysterically everyday was what cured her cancer;
as well as alleviating the immense pain and discomfort while she healed.
By the way-did I mention she is now cancer free?
Laughter is also said to be akin to aerobic exercise-man that is really
good news to me; I decided yesterday that I would watch a female
comedian while I went about my creating yesterday and the laughter
that came with that made for a pretty diamond day!
Love, Laugh & Kick Ass!!!
