Smile away your negative emotions
Practice the inner smile when you are tense, angry, anxious or depressed. Smile in the body part that experiences the tension and the pressure, then you will see how the negative energy gradually turns into positive, vital life force. The exhausting negative emotions will be transformed into positive energy and vitality. Smile away the emotions. The energy of the smile can convert emotional energy into powerful energy – provided you smile enough into emotions such as anger, tension, fear and impatience.
Smile away pain and illness
if you experience pain or restlessness in any part of the body, or if you feel sick in any particular organ, keep smiling and talking to it in these parts of yourself; let them respond to you, say something back – until you notice that they soften or open up, or their color changes from dull and dark to bright light.
Use in everyday life
Try to do the inner smile every day when you wake up. That will take you to a higher level all day. If you love your own body, you will be more loving to other people and able to do your work more effectively. Once you have learned it and put the inner smile into practice regularly, if you are short on time you can do it faster, within minutes.
Collect the smile energy in the navel
1. It is very important to store the smile energy in the navel at the end. Most of the nasty consequences of meditation are caused by an excess of energy in the head or heart. The navel area can safely handle the stronger energy brought about by the inner smile.
2. To collect the smile energy, focus on the navel area, which is about one inch inside your body. Then, spiraling that energy outward around your navel 36 times with your mind; do not focus above the diaphragm or below the pubic bone. Women start spiraling counterclockwise, men clockwise. Then reverse the movement and return the energy to the navel in 24 circular movements. Use your finger the first few times to guide the movement. The energy is now safely stored in your body and always available if you need it – for any part of the body.
You have now completed the inner smile.
