It is a form of therapy which encourages us to use the natural physiological process of laughter to release the painful emotions of anger, fear and boredom.
Sadly for many people this question prevents them from using the healing power of laughter to deal with the pain. Many of us are unaware that we laugh because we hurt. Abandoning our laughter because of overwhelming pain simply keeps us feeling victimized. Tapping into laughter as nature meant for us to do restores our personal power so we no longer feel like victims. We are able to cope with our pain.
No, we don't. We are actually happier because we laugh. Every time we laugh, we heal, That's why we feel better after we laugh, not before.
Absolutely not. laughter is always born of important feelings. It is nature's way of aiding our survival by giving us a new perspective so we may find ways to cope. Observe your own and other people's laughter and watch this important process take place.
You may need to cry which is equally healing. Tears are the healing not the pain. You may need to have a "tantrum" which is also healing. Watch the little children. They use their natural healing processes with masterful ease. They care for their pain with laughter, crying, and rage without wondering if it's okay or which process is best. They follow their emotions.
Because we laugh when we are hurt and laughter heals. The laughter was yours for the taking at birth. You used it then, and you can again. It's simply a matter of opening oneself to the healing powers of one's own body to assist in dealing with our painful emotions. We have to feel our emotions in order to heal. Our thoughts then assist our understanding. We need to feel as well as think in order to regain our balance so we can cope.
Everybody! Laughter is important and effective for individuals, couples, families, businesses, schools, medical facilities and all other organizations.
