LAUGHTER is a part of the human survival kit.

Today I stop taking everything so seriously!
Everyday before your morning meditation, enjoy a couple of Deep, Hardy, Vigorous LAUGHS!
Those Laughs will bring fresh oxygen into your brain & the rest of your body, and they will remind you how great it is to be alive today!
Plus, a bonus for anyone concerned about wrinkles: All that bright, clean oxygen enlivening your facial muscles will not only give you a whole new outlook on your day, but you will also look younger and more alive!
(The extra boost of oxygen into those skin cells on your face smooth out the wrinkles and give the skin a healthy glow!)
So, start your day with some hardy laughs and make your own day!!
Psst–Did you know that you can actually LAUGH any time YOU want during your day!
Am I hearing an Elmo Laugh?? Giggle-giggle. Maybe because I was just watching a PBS show about the creator of Elmo on Sesame Street. You know that infectious Laugh of his! He has something to teach us about Laughter and a Light view of Life. Elmo has lessons for us about LOVE too, but we’ll save that for another day.
Dr. Gebhardt: Bless you for bringing your expertise, training and experience into this forum to advocate open-mindedness. And, not surprisingly you expressed beautifully the value of the blending of the ancient techniques from the East with the technologies & research of the West.
As a Reiki Master, I have been using “energy” healing techniques for almost 20 years. And, I know that the elusive concept of “energy” as something that promotes healing is a hard concept for our minds that were trained to believe only what we can test successfully in double-blind studies that yield data as proof. I liked the certainty of the scientific method in my masters program yrs. ago, because it was so definite.
Even now, I’m not discounting the value of that way of learning & teaching. However, after I learned that there was a lot more to life than what my 5 senses could detect–like the elusive, intangible, non-measurable aspects of life–well, I was hooked! The proof was in the pain & stress that was alleviated by the hands-on healing of Reiki.
Reiki, like other forms of energy-work, can’t be sensed in the usual way that we’re used to, but we can detect its results. The bottom line is that there is much to learn from “conventional”/Western medicine AND from Eastern healing techniques, many of which have ancient roots & centuries of success at healing & facilitating healing.
