You can practice this meditation even when you are angry or upset for some reason. In fact, you should practice this meditation especially when you are angry or upset. Once you begin this ‘Smiling you meditation, you will feel relaxed and your mental excitement or anger will melt down.

Smile meditationI remember once my friend Donna came to me very excited and angry about one of our common friends. I suggested her to sit down and do this meditation which I guided her in to. Within a few moments, she looked calmer and centered. She thanked me profusely for this meditation that uplifted her vibration so fast. But the best benefit from this meditation comes when you practice it daily. You will find yourself more peaceful and saner than before. You will be even-tempered. You will not lose your temper quickly. You will be more blissful.
