How To Find Positive Inner Calm by Awakening Inner Child In You…
"I spent many years laughing at Harry Secombe's singing until somebody told me that it wasn't a joke."
…. It is a funny quote as you could expect from Spike Milligan. He is a special person in my life, as he was the closest friend to my father in law – Reginald Bennett, who passed away this year in February. He had an amazing sense of humour, and they shared it since the time they met during the war. They became friends forever. Humour bonds people. Never underestimate that!
…Well in this article I'm going to remind you how we can lose access to Divine Intelligence, Health and our Inner Positive Calm by being too 'damn' serious
It might be that :
…You have a lot on your plate…
…You are intelligent and must be serious…
…You have a business to run…
…You are too ill to find life funny…
…Now – when this happens it is an indication that now is the time to awaken your inner child. How can we do that? It is easy! As children we know well how to have fun, make jokes, be silly and just happy.
When we are small and have fun, laughing loudly, being silly and crazy, we are often told off by adults that it is not good to do so, or after laughter there will be something bad coming our way, or people will not take us seriously and we will not appear as intelligent as we are. …So we listen to these comments or 'rules' and agree with them. It becomes as a part of the Self-Image. When we grow up we have responsibilities, we have many serious roles to play and so we become too 'serious'.
Of course there are situations and places where it is not appropriate to have fun or laugh; however what happens is that even in places and situations we could have fun, we just don't know how to do it anymore or we just have a habit 'Being Serious'.
What happens when we are looking at the things from a funny side? We lose fear and once we lose fear we become strong, confident and can move forwards with a smile and inner calm. When you can find the way to laugh at least once a week about something so much that your stomach hurts, it is the best medicine you could find.
Laughter is a natural healer it boosts your immune system and influences your body chemistry. Your body responds to it by feeling good, and high naturally without any artificial stimulants. The release of endorphins makes you more intelligent, and keeps you younger, it reduces pain.. Also when you laugh with someone together it creates a bonding and strong friendships, as you are experiencing the happy feeling together.
Let's go and awaken our Inner Child NOW:
1. Start with memories. Remember the funniest situations in your life. Remember situations you could laugh about a lot and imagine them now. Remember yourself being funny, the situation where you were able to be silly and laugh about yourself. Remember the people you had fun with together and the feeling of being able to laugh a lot. How did it feel?
Now when you can recreate these situations in your memory it might give you an indication of how good that felt. Now what ever your situation is, there is a way to find something funny in everyday life.
2. Now make a plan for some fun. There can be many choices. Contact your best friend you can laugh a lot with. Get a funny movie and watch it. Do some exercises, it always helps to see the world in a funny way. At least once a week try to see a funny side of yourself or a situation.
The more fun you can create the easier is to develop even stronger sense of humour. Life shouldn't be too serious. Just think about it, if you would only have a week left to live, what would you do? Would you better go and have some fun whilst you can? There can be something funny about many situations in life. People have survived terminal illnesses, wars and suffering thanks to the amazing ability to laugh and see the funny side in very bad and tragic situations.
…I’m not sure if I would find any happiness without laughter, fun and sense of humour. I truly love my sense of humour, I would be nothing without it and my life would turn to suffering. In my life I find many things funny anyway, but apart from that I’m very fortunate to have a brilliant friend in my life. She makes me laugh so much that my stomach hurts! We have a chemistry between us, that when we meet I feel like I'm a little child in Kindergarten having fun We end up making up stories from real life situations, which evolve and become funny and so we just simply laugh like crazy. Even her presence makes me smile, and long after we’ve met each other I still have some memories floating around me which makes me smile. I’m sure you have someone in your life who makes you feel like that. And if not – it’s OK, you have so many ways to have fun, think of them and make them happen! Remember when you laughed so much that your stomach hurt, if that was a long time ago, you have to do something about it now.
The benefits of laughter are just to great to be missed and it is the most important ingredient for your Inner Peace. It is not only for your spirit, all of your body changes and heals. There is no substitute! …I'm sure you will find the way to something funny very soon. When you are happy that is the state of inner positive calm! Awaken your inner child within yourself now!
Stop being too serious and have some fun! Enjoy the life you have, find funny things about it and laugh as much and loud as you can!!! (in a secure place though :))
