Take 30 seconds and laugh. Laugh strong. Laugh loud. Laugh for no other reason except to laugh.
After 30 seconds go into silence and notice what arises. (Do this now before you read on!)
Laughing meditation alters the dopamine and serotonin levels in our bodies resulting in a decrease in depression, stress and anxiety.
In other words: Aliveness vibrates. Attitudes shift. Joy seeps in. Beginners Mind reigns. Life becomes vibrant.
WARNING! Watch out for the Inner Critic! When we are not feeling up to snuff we will put off Laughing Meditation. This is only an excuse from IC telling us we need to suffer through whatever we are experiencing first.
Not so! Many meditation practitioners choose to do Laughing Meditation in the midst of suffering. For instance, joining together in Laughing Meditation when our Beloved is dying is one of the highest moments for all…especially the Beloved who is passing.
