What a month October has been – we had great fun and laughter with Robin Graham which created the perfect opening for some fab networking. Many thanks to those who brought food for our social share. Then for those of us who trained with Janine Regan-Sinclair, lots of clearing with Crystal Ki healing followed by earth healing. Please send love and healing to Mother Earth and the people affected in these times of change and know that it’s all part of the shifts taking place.
This month we are delighted to welcome back for a third time, Eric Edmeades who will be sharing strategies to create Perfect Days when he joins us as part of his UK speaking tour. Autumn / winter is a time from shedding the leaves and getting clear for the year ahead so Eric’s event is the perfect opportunity to take ‘time out’ and learn how to have more fun and be more productive in both our business, work and life. Come along and join us for our last Mastery Path event of 2012. This month’s event will take place on Thursday 15 November, at The Village Hotel in Bury as opposed to our usual Wednesday night date, please note the change of venue. Eric is speaking at Tony Robbins Business Mastery Programme in London from 17-20 November and this really is a rare and wonderful opportunity to learn from a world-class speaker who walks his talk.
I really wasn’t sure what to expect from a laughter workshop and how grateful I am to Mastery Path member Debbie Turner for recommending Robin Graham to come and speak for us. We had such a fun filled evening!
Robin explained that laughter is a language – an expression of emotion. I remember that as a schoolgirl, I would often get in trouble for laughing at inappropriate moments (eg when I was being reprimanded or if I heard some bad news). Robin said that laughter can be a way of coping with stress and that makes complete sense … so if your children laugh when being told off, don’t be too hard on them – find a way to resolve the tension between you.
Interestingly, the word ‘silly’ comes from the German root which means ‘to be blessed’. This may explain why so many of us like to be silly now and again – we can view it as blessing ourselves – yay!
Laughter doesn’t always mean that you’re happy, but when you laugh it raises your endorphins and then you can laugh genuinely. When we’re relaxed our natural response to chaos is to laugh and sometimes, before you cry, you have to laugh and the reverse is also true.
Robin shared how we don’t need jokes to make us laugh. We have a filter system that involves our brain so we have to think about something first to see if it’s funny to us. What’s funny to one person may not be to another. When we are playful we don’t use a filter and can therefore get really deep. Through laughter we can generate joyfulness. A great way of lowering our stress levels is to use breathing techniques (which is an internal practice) combined with laughter (an external practice) – this helps us to bring about internal changes. It’s interesting to note that the laughter doesn’t have to be real – the same effect is produced chemically with put on laughter so it really is the best medicine with positive side effects of lowering blood pressure and reducing stress.
Imagine if everyone reading this newsletter made a conscious effort to laugh more, and it spreads to everyone in the area that you live and to the whole of the UK and wider afield … we can change society for the better.
