Bent over from laughing so hard, being silly; it can suddenly happen to you again. Has your face been tense for a while, or were your emotions overwhelming? Did you have problems with your sense of perspective? Were you just too tired to be happy? Then it’s possible that you spontaneously break into a fit of laughter while doing the MIR-Method.
Humor needs energy
One of the characteristics of the MIR-Method is that you renew your energy: via the meridians, new nutrients, getting rid of old burdens and the flowing again of your chakras and aura. All of these work together to reload your batteries and you become energetic again. Humor is something that you need energy for. The more energy you have, the more humor.
The Chinese know where humor flows in your body. The circulation meridian is an energy path that represents love of life, sparkle and ability to enjoy. If this meridian is disrupted, you no longer sparkle, everything becomes more difficult and you easily feel attacked
Humor in the family
How did you grow up? In a family where humor existed? Did everyone laugh? Or was everything serious and you weren’t allowed to tease each other? Then your feeling for humor is underdeveloped. Children, who grow up with little humor, can lack it as adults. If you do the MIR-Method, then with step 3: “Detach father. Detach mother”, you detach yourself from the norms of your parental home. You shake off the weighty seriousness of it all. You get your “dirty mind” back. You begin to feel that teasing is not life threatening. You begin to realize the teasing is actually fun and that it can really improve the atmosphere in the house or at your work!
Detoxify limiting beliefs
Your brain can really work against you. If you have beliefs that hinder you from being happy, I call those “toxic beliefs”. Think about things like: “Laughing is something for dumb people”. “You can’t be happy because the world is too dreary”. “Once a pessimist, always a pessimist”. “A manager is supposed to be an example of focus and drive”. If you laughed at the wrong moment as a child (during a funeral), you can probably remember the slap you got on the back of the head very well. You learned a belief: laughing is dangerous because, out of nowhere, you can get slapped.
Detoxify toxic memories
Humor can be used against you. If you were bullied, it was “really” fun for the bullies and those surrounding you. It wasn’t for you. Or if someone in the class said: “You have a weird laugh!”, you hid your loud laughter forever. With step 2: “Detox all toxicity”, you remove all of those hindering beliefs and toxic memories out of your system.
Hello loud laughter, are you there again?
And then all of a sudden, that loud laugh appears again. Before you know it, you are guffawing. You can have a laughing fit with your neighbor or colleague like you haven’t had in a long time. Enjoy it!
Humor feeds a relationship
“A day without laughter is a day not lived”. This expression irritated a friend of mine. As if life is fun! In the meantime, doing the MIR-Method has reawakened her sense of humor. She reports laughing as she used to, to the point of getting a stomachache. A release! “It was so wonderful,” she shouted through the telephone.
People with a sense of humor are worth their weight in gold! Humor is essential in relationships, between friends and girl friends, colleagues, during meetings, everywhere. It can even be your mission: to create gaiety by making people laugh. Laughter is enormously healthy and healing. If you make someone laugh, you help the other person to forget his or her worries. You lift the other person out of being gloomy. It makes life a bit more cheerful and bearable.
