Steve Bhaerman – A Course In Laughter 8 Weeks
Could experiencing greater health, wealth and wellbeing involve something as simple as bringing more joy and laughter into your life?
You laugh, and we say, “Terrific! You have a head start!”
Yes, we know. It might be a bit of a stretch to take humor seriously. But as writer Norman Cousins discovered when faced with a life-threatening illness, laughter can heal the body, mind and spirit. Laughter is medicine, all right … in the Native American sense of medicine, a transformational tool to turn the dross of life into the gold of loving laughter.
On the physical and emotional level, laughter instantly releases and eradicates stress. Mentally, laughter cultivates flexibility and creativity. And when we use laughter to take ourselves less seriously, we instantly gain more spiritual and emotional freedom. As Swami Beyondananda says, “Life is a joke – but God is laughing with us, not at us.”
When we cultivate “self-facing” laughter, we view situations from a higher perspective. We laugh with God at our human foolishness, we attain “fool realization,” and we recognize that we are way, way bigger than our problems and situations.
Now you may be thinking, “OK, you’ve got a point. But I’m simply not funny!”
We say, “HA!”
Seen from the outside, we’re all much funnier than we think. God thinks we’re funny. The Creator is watching the Comedy Channel, and WE are what’s on! The trick isn’t BEING funny … it’s SEEING funny, and by immersing yourself in “cosmic comic consciousness,” just about anyone can learn to see the jokes “hidden in the picture.”
Why a Sense of Humor is So Desirable
Did you know that one of the most sought-after traits in a spouse or partner is “a sense of humor?” Why? Because a sense of humor is a sense of perspective, and people who have that amazing knack can change another individual’s mood for the better. Levity certainly helps overcome gravity, and allows us to see from the higher perspective of love.
Laughter shakes us loose, releasing us from no-longer-helpful B.S. (Belief Systems). When you apply the perspective of laughter to your own story, you are liberated from the grip of that story – and your energy becomes available for more constructive things.
Think about it … what if you were able to bring more genuine joy – and enjoyment – to all of your life’s situations? What if you could laugh at your problems, and then use the “aha” in the wake of the “ha-ha” to see new solutions? What if you were able to turn your grumpiness into a grumpy “alter ego” who helps you to laugh at your grumpiness? What if you were able to effortlessly light up a room, and get much better smileage on your karma? What if you actually became the person your dog thinks you are?
Seriously … and humorously, what if you became more of who you REALLY are, and discover how much you really, really like the real you?
And all that takes is some practice with the guidance and expertise of a master mischief-maker like Swami Beyondananda and his slightly-more-serious alter ego, Steve Bhaerman.
Swami is known as the Cosmic Comic for a reason – he’s a master of humor that enlightens, that not only leaves people laughing, but leaves them smiling. Swami and Steve are teaming up on this 8-week course to bring more laughter – more joy, more wisdom, more love, more fulfillment – into your life.
Be truthful. Are you suffering from just a little too much seriousness? Has lack of laughter left you suffering from “irregularhilarity,” or heaven forbid, “humorrhoids?” Do you magnetize other people toward you, or does your seriousness keep them away? Swami says the world is in serious condition because of our conditioning to be serious.
How You Can Benefit From Developing Your 6th Sense
When you develop the 6th sense of humor, you gain the power of freedom and personal magnetism. When you learn to see the humor in more situations, expand your emotional range, and practice letting more of your inner sub-personalities out to play, you become a more engaging, powerful, fun person to be around. Just this magnetism alone attracts more clients, love, friendship, business, etc.
Laughter is good medicine for all of us but it also helps in a lot of very specific situations:
Laughter Heals the Body and Mind
When you laugh, your whole body chemistry changes. It’s like a cleansing effect – you feel better and lighter. But laughter goes beyond the feeling of wellness and joy. Scientific studies have shown that laughter has tangible health benefits. Laughter can:
- Boost your immunity and lower stress hormones, which slows the aging process
- Give you better health, faster recovery from disease, and higher rates of feel-good hormones
- Release endorphins, which helps to decrease pain in your body as well as reduce cravings associated with addiction
- Flush blood clots, cholesterol and inflammation from your body by expanding your blood vessels and increasing blood flow
Laughter is the fastest stress reliever on the planet. What’s even better – it’s FREE. Laughter, in fact, has been found to have similar benefits to exercise. So next time you feel like you can’t get off the couch to go to the gym, have a good belly laugh instead. As Swami reminds us, laughter causes deeper breathing, and breathing is the key to long life!
Use The Power Of Laughter to Call in “The One”
Laughter is the natural magnetism that will increase your animal magnetism. Not only will cats and dogs love you, you will instantly become a people magnet and start attracting the love you deserve in life. With laughter, you will:
- Add more levity, lightness, and play to your all relationships
- Create more satisfying and long-lasting romantic relationships (unless you’re a fan of first dates only)
- Become the world’s best self-lover – all parts of yourself, not just THAT part
If you’ve been seeking that one Soul Mate with whom you can live out the rest of your life, the gift of humor will make a memorable first impression on that all-important first date. More laughter and levity is guaranteed to instantly get you to Date #2 – or even just the first half of Date #1.
And even if those blind dates turn into blind alleys, having more fun and being more fun, will get you invited more places, and increase not just your chances of meeting “the one,” but in BEING the one who will attract the one you want to meet.
