You’ve heard the phrase, “An apple a day, keeps the doctor away”, well, try saying this instead, “A dose of laughter a day, keeps an amazing life coming your way!” Laughter is one of the keys to manifesting an amazing life that you love. Why? Because when you laugh, you let go of having to be in control. Laughter frees you up in such a unique way that there is no “mind” there analyzing, criticizing, and constantly ‘efforting’ to remain in control.

A good long authentic belly laugh is one of the best medicines you could ever take on a daily basis. Clinical cases show that the endorphins released in a persons brain from laughing naturally creates a healing which over time adds up to a large collective healing reaction throughout the whole body.”

So, how do you laugh more? A lot of people believe that some silly event needs to happen in order to really have a good laugh.  The truth is, you can start looking for the humor in life right now and you can laugh at just about anything.  Here are a few tips:

  • See your human experience as one big comedic sitcom. Do this by taking one thing you’re taking very seriously and think of how it might be portrayed in a sitcom. The more you do this the easier it will be. There is always a perspective that is less dramatic, serious or worrisome than any other.
  • Recognize that your seriousness is not really helping the situation. Feeling and focusing on being angry, depressed, ashamed, blamed or playing some old victim game inside will just attract more of the same. Laughing about it just feels so much better! You release that serious grip on the expectation, belief, thought or desire.
  • Remember that you are in charge of which thoughts you choose to entertain. The big cosmic joke is that you become what you decide to put your attention on! So, start opening yourseIf up to really getting in a good, deep belly laugh about anything that starts out just being remotely humorous. You’ll start having a much lighter experience of that situation which will impact your inner perception of “reality” and then your outer experience more than you know.
  • Give your ego mind a “break”. Your overly serious ego mind wants to keep you blinded from knowing how to fully enjoy life.  Your ego mind is lost in the world of trying to achieve, resist and become something.  Laughter is not about achieving anything, it is a releasing and a cleansing.  It liberates you from the ego mind and delivers you to a place of deep peace inside. Remember that feeling of release you have after a big belly laugh? If you don’t remember, it’s been way too long!
  • Think of the Universe as a giant playground where you are the actor, director and producer of the play, as well as the watcher, witnesser and audience who’s seeing it all happening on stage.  This massive playground exists in all directions and is within everything around you now.  Pets are the best way to start. I once saw a play where the dog was the main character. It was so well done and humorous as the dog said out loud all its thoughts. So start with your pet, and imagine what they are thinking and saying about you!
There really is just one simple rule for creating massive joy in your life this week, this month, this year and this lifetime.  If you want to have an amazing life that you love, don’t ever let seriousness into your body….ever!  No matter what anyone tells you, if what you’re doing is not enjoyable, fun, or at least educational, then don’t do it!  You can find something better!  Seriousness is a disease to your soul and only cripples your life.  It’s never too late to change directions and have a sense of humor about it all.
Having access to this light playful spirit is the key to creating a tremendous healing in your life.  It’s the great golden secret to turning your life around and the lives of those around you.  Simply say to yourself every day, “I can let go and laugh about it all!”  Yes!  It’s time you started to have more fun in this amazing game called Life.  It all starts by taking a tiny step back from the mind, and not taking anything (especially your mind) too seriously. If you can do this every day, you are well on your way to raising your vibrations to a level that attracts a wonderful, joy filled life.
