Another fantastic exercise is the Gibberish Tension Release Walk. This can be done on your own or with a friend, partner, or maybe someone you have had a disagreement with. It soon changes the state of feeling between you both.
To practise this on your own, find a deserted space where you can walk freely, this may be your living room, your garden, the beach anywhere that feels safe to you. Have in mind whatever is making you feel upset, grumpy, frustrated, irritated and express this feeling in Gibberish as you walk a few paces. Then, stop and raise your arms in the air and laugh loudly. Carry on walking Gibberishing loudly. Then, stop and raise your arms in the air and laugh loudly. Keep going till the deeply felt feelings are all out.
If you have a person to partner you, start at opposite ends of the room or space, walk towards each other expressing yourselves in Gibberish, then when you come together, stop and raise your arms in the air and laugh loudly, continue to walk to the other end of the space, turn around and come back towards one another again expressing yourselves in Gibberish, till you meet, then stop and raise your arms in the air and laugh loudly. Walk backwards and forwards at least three times.
Whilst in Egypt a couple of years ago, I had a profound experience using Gibberish Healing. Our tour group had had a particularly tense day and everyone was grumpy. We all had to get back on the tour bus for a few hours and no-one wanted to, everyone was complaining. So, I decided to stand in the doorway of the bus and give Gibberish Healing to each person. The effect was remarkable. I could see people becoming calmer, more relaxed and accepting of having to get back on the bus. Much laughter and giggles followed, with even a song thrown in as we made our way off to the next temple we were visiting. It was at this point I realized the true nature of Gibberish. It not only releases inhibitions, it allows people to become fully present and more accepting of themselves and their circumstances. Just brilliant!
I encourage you to speak Gibberish, with lots of facial and arm movements, the next time you are faced with a challenging situation, and then of course, combine it with laughter. As the old saying goes Better out, than in Let those feelings out, and life suddenly becomes a lot more fun!
