Laughing = Ease much better than worrying

I spent the month of June traveling through Europe with my very good friend, Bart. Among other things,  Bart is an incredible practitioner of Energetic Healing. One of the things I love about him is that he laughs all the time. He laughs at me, at life and, most importantly, at himself. His laughter brings healing and joy to all he does, and he does a lot. He finds humor in everything, well, almost everything.

He also flies by the seat of his pants. What that means to me is that he goes with the flow, which was sometimes troublesome for me. I like to "know" things. What I'm doing, where I'm going, things like that. I would find myself getting anxious about what the day would look like, what time we had to leave for wherever, any little tidbit I could find that would catch my worry wart. I know you know what I'm talking about.

Fortunately I was aware enough to feel my body contract vehemently when these worry thoughts presented themselves. It was quite obvious that I wasn't in the flow because my stomach was tied up in knots. I was worrying about whatever I could. Because I was aware of what was going on inside myself, I could remind myself to take a deep breath or two, or three and tell myself that everything was just fine. More importantly, I was able to see and know that things were better than fine. Things worked out with amazing grace and ease every single time.

Many of us worry and that seems to be some weird sort of control over things (or so we think). I'm finding that it's much easier to laugh and enjoy life and trust that things are working out. And what the heck, if they don't work out the way we want them to, we'll just figure out what to do next.
