  • Laugh for your spirit!

    May 24, 2015
  • Several years ago I attended a workshop over a weekend to help myself heal my body. I was directed to first heal my spirit. As I was intently concentrating on my life, my issues, basically just myself, I kept getting annoyed by a woman across the room with the most loud, obnoxious laugh. After all, I paid for this workshop and I was determined to get every ounce of benefit from it. So, of course, I came back from our lunch break and found myself seated next to the ‘Loud Laughing Woman’. She was even more annoying up close to my ear. After just a short time though, we began a conversation. I found out that she had been employed as an ‘audience plant’ in her younger years due to her ‘unusual’ laugh. As I took my intent focus off myself and allowed it to broaden and include this wonderful woman, I found myself unable to stop laughing when I heard her laugh. Heal your spirit indeed. She was there to heal from terminal cancer. Laughter opens the soul; laughter frees the spirit and makes us realize that despite our sufferings, we are not alone.

    Don’t take yourself so seriously! Lighten up and laugh!
