The other day I was watching a recording of guy giving a talk about an alternative therapy. He wanted to lighten the mood of the room given it was early afternoon and asked the group to do a little exercise Try it if you like
Take a deep breath and as you exhale say Haaaa
Take another deep breath and as you exhale, say Haaa haaa
Take another deep breath and this time as you let go of the breath, say ha as many times as you can.
He was getting them to help change the energy, lift the mood of the room. He got them to laugh.
The result was instant. Amazing.
But wait – there’s more.
Go back to the times of Lemuria or more correctly, Lemuriha. The islands of Hawaii are all that is left of Lemuriha apart from the traditions and some of the language. Ask a Hawaiian what ‘ha’ means and you will be told it is the ‘breath of life’.
So every time you laugh you are also calling out the breath of life. It puts a whole new meaning to laughing.
