As Dr. Caroline Leaf states in the “Switch on Your Brain Everyday” devotional:
“Love can change the way the brain and body function. Loving others and being loved changes the blood chemistry in all 75 to 100 trillion cells of the brain and body.”
Read that again! Love is one of the most powerful healing and transformative tools, and we all possess the capability to love. Not only does this mean that we can heal and transform our own minds, spirits, and bodies with love, but it also means that we can actually bestow this wonderful healing gift to others.
Everyday, we can make the choice to love ourselves and to love others unconditionally, and a great way to train ourselves to do this is through laughter yoga. Here at Loving and Laughing Laughter Yoga, we recognize that the two most curative exercises for the mind and body is love and laughter. They go hand in hand. When we laugh, we become happier, and we can love more easily and thoroughly. Similarly, when we love, we become happier, and we can laugh and experience joy more easily. It’s like a beautiful positivity cycle that I never want to get off of!
Two of the benefits of laughter yoga is that it increases joy, and it increases creativity. When our joy is increased, we also become more loving, and that joy and love begins to shine out of us onto others. We become lights in the world, and we shine brightly! Additionally, the increased creativity that laughter yoga provides allows us to think of more and more ways to get that joy and love out into the world.
When we spread this joy and love to others, we increase their joy and love. In turn, they are more likely to then pass that joy and love on to someone else. Basically, we can create a ripple effect of love and joy, and enable healing, transformation, and peace to spread throughout the world. This not only increases the health and happiness of ourselves and those around us, but can also even help to heal the Earth, and with the world in the state it’s currently in, this is needed now more than ever.
I challenge you each day to make love and laughter a top priority, and one tool to help you with this endeavor is to practice laughter yoga for at least 15 minutes a day (preferably more, making laughter a normal occurrence throughout your day). Then keep your eyes, ears, and heart open to recognize the positive changes that come along with it – not only in yourself, but in those around you, the energy you attract, and in your ability to love and accept love.
