When we smile or laugh, the brain acquires the feeling of satisfaction and emits positive vibrations throughout the body. When we smile, neurotransmitters are released such as dopamine and serotonin, which help to relax the body and lower blood pressure.

Now smile and meditate:

Meditate inside your body and smile into:

  • Heart: Smile into your heart and dissolve hate and impatience. Smiling into your heart can help shift cruelty, hurt, hate and impatience.  Feel your heart fill with joy, kindness and compassion with each breath cycle.
  • Liver: Smile into your liver and dissolve anger. This greatly assists with the decision-making process.  Forgive, accept and feel kindness.
  • Kidneys: Smile into your kidneys and dissolve fear. Feel safe, secure and protected in life again.  Breathe a smile into your kidneys, feel them soften on the inhalation and release fear and stress on the exhalation.
  • Lungs: Smile into your lungs and dissolve sadness and depression. Fill your lungs on the inhale and totally empty them on the exhale. Allow fresh new air to fill your lungs as you inhale the smiling energy.  Feel them relax and release any feelings of sadness and depression.
  • Stomach: Smile into your stomach and dissolve anxiety. The stomach can often be a place where we hold lots of worry.  Smiling into your stomach can greatly help bring you into the present moment releasing worry and anxiety about the past and future.  Continue breathing the smiling energy into your stomach until it feels totally relaxed. 
  • Any body part: Of course you can enjoy a quick 5-minute smiling break by breathing into any part of your body that is overworked, fatigued or stressed. Smile into your eyes if they are tired.  Smile into your jaw if you are clenching your teeth.  Smile into your shoulders if they are hunched and tight.  Smile into your feet if they are tired.  A smile encourages you to soften, release and improve energy flow.
