“Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face”. – Victor Hugo
Fear is an emotion that every one of us has experienced in our life.
Fear stops us in our tracks and blocks our free will and ability to rationalize.
This is known as becoming blocked or stuck which is what the word negative emotion means. Stuck or slowly moving energy.
Several things can cause us to experience stuck energy.
A visual or auditory reaction to what we saw or what someone said to us.
Ingesting unhealthy low vibratory foods and drinks will also cause us to feel stuck energy.
Often unchecked fear will result in anxiety and panic attacks. Once you get here recovery can be a long and windy road. You get to a place where you fear your thoughts and how your body will react to them.
Whenever you are feeling tight and heavy especially in the chest area you will be prevented from connecting to “all that is.”
You essentially become cut-off from divine guidance and are more likely to make hasty decisions that you will later regret.
Have you ever had a hangover before?
A hangover is the result of ingesting too much low vibrational alcohol and your body’s vibration becomes very low and experiences stuck energy as a result.
After some time and allowing the body to detox, your body’s normal balance will regain itself. Sugary, salty, and artificial foods will also have the same effect on the body.
Many authors experience “writers block” due to exaggerated fears and concerns that they are giving attention to.
Also writers block will occur if you are already carrying stress in your body about something unrelated to writing.
If you ever experience writers block take some time to check your thoughts about writing.
If there are no concerns with your writing than something else may be weighing you down.
Find some creative ways to simplify your life.
Why laughter eases fear
Laughter causes the self to “lighten up” and not take itself too seriously.
It’s difficult to laugh and be in fear at the same time.
Some people don’t laugh enough and some not at all. You can recognize these people by their stern demeanor and serious attitude.
Laughter also causes the dense, stuck energy to become loose and begin flowing again.
Medical tests and trials have also proven that laughter has a tremendous effect on sick patients. Once again because laughing causes the energy to flow again.
Stuck energy in the body is no different from stuck mucous in the lungs.
One way to break up chest congestion is by taking decongestants, or drinking something hot like mullein tea.
These physical products will work at removing physical symptoms.
Laughter is an energetic mechanism and so is stuck energy.
They are in the same form so you will need to use energy to help with stuck energy.
There are depression pills and such on the market that can help with stuck energy but the problem is that they have nasty side-effects that would make you want to opt for the depression.
Remember no matter how bad your situation is laughter will always make you feel better and will keep you from declining in your emotional state of being.
I have a tendency to take life and my own personal goals too seriously.
I notice that when I do this my body stiffens up and I get aches and pains.
One way that I help myself with this is by getting a massage or taking a hot shower.
But another easier and cheaper way is to watch some funny movies.
Laughter acts as an emotional lubricant to ease fear and worry. That is why we often laugh when we are nervous. It’s a response mechanism known as the laughter/fear response.
Call To Action
Make a date for yourself to borrow at least three funny movies and watch them back to back to back.
See if you don’t sleep better at night and feel great the next day.
“Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it.- Bill Cosby
Update 2/9/12: I recently found out about laughter yoga.
Have you heard of it? I haven’t until today. Here is more about laughter yoga from Laughter Yoga.org.
Laughter Yoga is a revolutionary idea – simple and profound. An exercise routine, it is sweeping the world and is a complete well being workout.
The brainchild of Dr. Madan Kataria, a Physician from Mumbai, India, launched the first Laughter Club at a Park on March 13, 1995, with merely a handful of persons.
Today, it has become a worldwide phenomenon with more than 6000 Social Laughter Clubs in about 60 countries.
Laughter Yoga combines Unconditional Laughter with Yogic Breathing (Pranayama). Anyone can Laugh for No Reason, without relying on humor, jokes or comedy.
Laughter is simulated as a body exercise in a group; with eye contact and childlike playfulness, it soon turns into real and contagious laughter.
The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter. One gets the same physiological and psychological benefits.
