The Healing Power of YOUR Smile :)

The Healing Power of YOUR Smile :)“DO THE KINDS OF THINGS THAT COME FROM YOUR HEART. When you do, you won’t be dissatisfied, you won’t be envious, you won’t be longing for somebody else’s things. On the contrary, you’ll be overwhelmed with what comes back.”–Morrie Schwarts

We all know that a thing of beauty is a joy forever and that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. Isn’t it interesting how the perception of beauty changes from person to person and heart to heart.

Today I will share with you an act of Beauty that also spreads Beauty and healing all around us. I noticed and experimented from my Hearts perspective as to what would spreading beauty really mean and how it feels deep down in my heart. And this is what I came up with:

Just Smile

Now, smiling isn’t such a big deal. We all smile, so many times in the day. Sometimes we smile when we have found something funny, sometimes when something nice happens, sometimes we smile at our own silliness and sometimes we smile as a greeting to another person. And most of the time we smile out of courtesy.

Always always, a smile that’s from the heart will have a boomerang effect. If you simply smile for the sake of smiling it isnt going to be reciprocated.

So, as my Positive Monthly GIVING Challenge on being more giving this month, I started smiling. I mean really smiling from the heart. The kind that makes even your heart swell with happiness.

I started smiling with feeling, not out of courtesy- at the grocery store clerk, at the building watchman, at the neighbors, at any living thing I came across. I also started smiling at the pigeons that come to my balcony and the trees, flowers and plants. Think of me as weird, but I actually felt those birds smiling back..!!!

Ok, I mustve done this for like just two days and already everything around me was suddenly becoming beautiful. Not only that, all those smiles I was giving away were coming back to me in the form of pure beautiful love. That feeling was so indescribable!

Now, I never ever want to courtesy smile. I will truly smile from the heart. Cause I know, maybe my smile isn’t picture perfect like those toothpaste commercials, but I feel that simple smile of mine doing its job of spreading BEAUTY everywhere it goes. Giving smiles spreading beauty 🙂

The Healing Power of YOUR Smile 🙂

One good heart smile will have a domino effect. The person you’re smiling at will feel that genuine love with which you’re beaming away and will smile back. Inturn he/she/it will smile at someone else cause your smile just made them happy. And this will continue…I saw it happen.

At the grocers-the clerk seemed in a mood, or rather no mood. But, when I reached the counter, I smiled at her and and so did my little one. Instantly her face beamed up and she started smiling and chatting away. After we finished, she actually greeted the next customer with a beaming smile too!!

No jewel in the world can match the radiance of joy reflected in a happy smiling face.

Let your smiles and laughter be only a means of merriment, joy and happiness.  It must never be used as a device to humiliate or ridicule others. That would be selfish and mean. Neither must your smiles and laughter be a means to conceal your shyness or nervousness. That would be stupid. Smiles and Laughter are indeed good for the mind, body, heart and soul.

You can not think negative thoughts for long, while you are smiling or laughing.

Laughter is said to be the best medicine. When you are faced with worries and problems, laughter can provide you with the necessary relaxation and diversion you would need at the time, to regroup and to heal your mental and physical resources.

A Smile is infectious and so is laughter. We feel happier, relaxed and free of tension when we smile or laugh.

There is a lot of wisdom in the following words :-

“Laugh it off and sleep over it”

“Smile and it will wash the wrinkles away”

Imagine a world full of Happy Smiley People…….How BEAUTIFUL is that??? 🙂

A Smile not only makes you beautiful but makes everything and everyone around you beautiful too!

What are you waiting for??? SMILE 🙂 Its free. Its easy. Its always available in abundance. You know you love to Smile !!! 🙂

Our world needs all the BEAUTIFUL positive energy generated from that beautiful Smile of yours 🙂

  1. Beautiful post, photo! and reminder Zeenat. I love the idea of spreading beauty and kindness with smiles. 🙂 🙂
    Your idea for a month long focus on giving overlaps with the Compassion Games. Maybe you want to join and play along? Here is more info.

    blessings and smiles, Brad 🙂

  2. Awesome post, and so true. Smiling’s so simple, yet so powerful. Smiling, and positivity in general, are contagious, so a simple smile can have a small ripple effect in making the world a better place. Some studies, like “Grin and Bear it”, also show that smiling can make us feel genuinely better. So it’s a win-win for everyone if we smile :).

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Hi Zeenat,

    SMILE! What a powerful word! I have felt it’s beauty, I have seen its latent energy…the first effect is on our own wellbeing – how it opens our heart to the outside world, it sends positive vibes effortlessly, it can win many hearts! The reassurance it sends comes back to us, we feel we have done one good deed, having completed one act of benevolence that warms our heart with a strange glow.

    Thanks for the reminder! Surely smiles can connect us SO well! 🙂

  4. Smiling has always been a big part of my life. I love your post and couldn’t agree more! ❤

  5. I love smiling and it does work wonders. You make others happy and it is rather infectious! Keep smiling away! Thanks for a lovely post! 🙂

  6. Great post! I usually catch myself with such a serious face everywhere I go. But I do notice that when I smile at people or just random things and events it really does cheer up my heart. It’s hard to explain, but it does make a difference. Thank you for the reminder. I will be more aware of smiling often, in a sincere way. 🙂

  7. Smiles are great and I love, love, love that picture! So cute!!
