By Maj Britt (Denmark). I’m a fitness trainer and joined my local laughter club because I thought it would be good for my immune system. I later realized however that I have gained far more than just better health. I can feel my soul healing. I’ve opened up and this practice has helped me know myself better.
I was a very serious person and was not good at playing. It’s very different now! The most beautiful thing about laughter is that you can make mistakes. I come from a family where no one is supposed to make any mistakes. It is such a relief to know that one can make a mistake and it’s OK.
Laughter Yoga has also helped me heal from an important rejection by someone I loved. We had a lot of problems and then suddenly he left without saying goodbye. I was very sad and then I remembered what Dr Kataria had told me, to simply say “So What?”. After I said that I started crying and ended up laughing. I could see how ridiculous the whole thing was and I felt much better. I feel I can do anything in the Universe. I know that when I’m feeling low and depressed I can laugh and that it will help me lighten up become my happy self again.
