Activate Thoughts That Make Stress Impossible

Friday, July 13th, 2012

Today's Power of Intention calendar from Wayne Dyer reads:

"You can either activate thoughts that produce stress within you, or activate thoughts that make stress impossible. It's your choice."  

Let's activate thoughts today that make stress impossible: thoughts like fun, play, silliness, excitement and joy! Join me for our first Giggle Fest & Manifest! VIDEOCHAT at GoodVibeUniversity today at 2:00 p.m. EDT and let's create some fun and play! You have to be a member to join in on this one, but you can try it out for $1 here. Once you join, look to the left sidebar under "Resources" for "Videochat." "See" you then! hee hee

 

Anderson Cooper Giggle Fest – Part 2

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

I'd say that Anderson is having a lot more fun these days. Or maybe it's the new wave of news for 2012! Looks like he broke into giggling again about two months ago (8 months after the earlier Giggle Fest on the air).

The part that I really love is when he says, "You gotta let it out!" Very good, very good, YAY! Your body, your spirit and your mind all need laughter. We need to return to our childlike-playfulness to live happier lives. Laughter truly is the best medicine!

So how about a regular Giggle Fest and Manifest! session on your show, Anderson? We could get it all out before you begin (or) anywhere in the segment where you feel it's needed! I'm open and I live in New York! hee hee

In the meantime, keep on letting it all out!

Getting Rid of “Old Stories” We Tell Ourselves

Friday, June 1st, 2012

I'm a faculty member at GoodVibeUniversity where we have a forum called "Old Story Pot." It's where we throw our "old stories" or "limiting beliefs" that we tell ourselves into a pot and get rid of them once and for all.  The idea is that in doing so, we then release them and allow more good stuff in.

Society, our upbringing, messages from the media and what we tell ourselves inside our own heads often limit us - if we choose to believe these stories. Getting rid of limiting beliefs is a choice. When you begin to become aware of just how many beliefs you have that don't serve you in living a joyful life, it can be freeing to start throwing them into the "Old Story Pot."

I didn't just post these two stories into the "Old Story Pot" forum at GVU this morning, I decided to throw them out in the garbage (and not the recycling bin either)! hee hee  My two "old stories" are "Act your age!" and "Don't be so childish!"

What does "acting your age" really mean, anyway? It's this notion that we must "conform" our behavior to a more mature, "adult-way" of doing things. What does "adult-way" actually mean? And is there a difference in how you think an "adult" of 25 years of age should behave and another who is 75 years old? If the answer is "yes," I encourage you to challenge these beliefs.

Holding on to these notions or "old stories" can limit you in living a life of joy. When we refrain from being "child-like" through play, joy and other fun behavior that's typically found in children, we restrict ourselves. We get more stressed, we don't have  as much fun, we worry and we attract more worries and stress to our lives as a result.

Yet letting go of these notions takes practice. Often, some adults may find Laughter Yoga to be unsettling because we let our inhibitions go and act playful. In Laughter Yoga, we laugh a lot (like children do). I don't know about you, but laughing a lot sounds and FEELS really good to me!  I've found that once my Laughter Yoga group gets started, most people drop these inhibitions and just have fun. The laughter is contagious and it's "OK" and "safe" to be "adults" playing and acting child-like.

Don't you really want more fun and laughter in your life? Why not consider joining me this Sunday at 12:00 noon EDT for my next Giggle Fest & Manifest! call? A virtual class is a good way to "ease into" an in-person class as we don't see each other on the call. You can even show up in your pajamas! hee hee While the beauty of Laughter Yoga classes is the connection between the people in the class and I do believe that in-person classes have more benefit for this reason, there is great value in just laughing for no reason. In doing so, you are making a choice to at least challenge these "old stories." You're making a choice to BE joy!  And guess what? When you're in joy, you enJOY! 🙂

I invite you to give it a try this Sunday, June 3rd. Call-in details are listed on the right side bar.

 

Let’s Play!

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Ready? Set! GO!!! Let's play!

What, you ask? Not feeling it? Are you not in the mood today? Perhaps you're not feeling so well today? What's your excuse? How many times do you make excuses not to have fun, because you think you have to "act your age?"  Or maybe you've been taught that "playing" is immature behavior that "adults" don't do - Or perhaps you're so stressed out worrying and thinking about your current "reality" that you don't think you have time for fun.

Whatever the reason you're using, you're not alone. Adults don't have as much fun as kids do. Children know how to have fun. They laugh a lot more than adults. In one study, children were found to laugh about 400 times a day, compared to only 17 for adults.  This site is intended to help those who know the benefit of laughter and to help them deliberately create a more joyful life. We don't need stories, comedians or jokes either.  We'll just laugh for no reason, even if we aren't feeling it, even if we're not in the mood today and no matter what age we are.  

So welcome to the first post. Are you ready? Set! Let's go!
