Smile More – Be Happy – Live Longer!

July 14th, 2014

Would you like to increase your “Happiness Factor,” quickly and easily?

... you can add 7 years to your life simply by smiling more? 

I recently found this article in the “Underground Health Reporter” and even though there is no mention of brainwave function or Healing Spectrums, it provides yet another reason why the Healing Spectrums Method and Coherence Activations can be a boon for a healthier, happier, and longer life.

University brainwave studies have shown that the Healing Spectrums Sessions, Self-treatment Method, Practitioners Method, and Coherence Activations produce unique brainwave functions that not only activate and accelerate your body’s natural healing and regenerative processes, but also can increase your brain’s ability to produce the more rare “Gamma” brainwave function.

And here is where the “Happiness Factor” comes in!

Aside from the brain being able to process information/data at a super-high rate of speed, other research has shown that people who exhibit the capacity to produce Gamma brainwaves all have a specific characteristic that we all desire: Greater happiness! They are just happier, laugh and smile more, don’t sweat the small stuff, and experience greater ease and fulfillment in life.

So enjoy the following article, smile more, and let us know if you would like to know more about how the Healing Spectrums sessions and programs can help you experience greater health, happiness, and well-being in your life.

The Underground Health Reporter Article:

Have you ever been advised to fake it until you make it?  When it comes to smiling, this advice is scientifically proven to be on the mark.  The simple fact is, smiling extends your lifespan.

     Today’s cutting-edge research on this matter was born with one of Charles Darwin’s lesser-known theories.  Darwin claimed that the mere act of smiling can make us feel better.  Just as feeling happy causes us to smile, proposed Darwin, so does smiling can cause us to feel happy.

Almost a century and a half later, scientists at Wayne State University proved that Darwin was right.  But the truth was even better.  The researchers found that smiling not only improves your mood, but can also potentially lengthen your life.

Wayne State’s Breakthrough Study 

For the study, the team analyzed players’ smiles on 1952 baseball cards, and found that the size of a player’s smile could predict the length of that player’s life.  Players who grinned lived an average of 79.9 years, whereas those who did not smile at all lived only 72.9 years.  Thats a difference of 7 years!

The Fort Wayne study did not explore the biological connections between bigger smiles and longer lives, but the therapeutic benefits of smiling have been well-documented elsewhere.  Research links smiling to a variety of positive outcomes, including…



  • Lower levels of stress hormones like cortisoladrenaline, and dopamine
  • Increased levels of endorphins and other mood-enhancing hormones
  • Normalized blood pressure
  • Improved health overall

The Astonishing Power of a Smile 

According to a study carried out in the United Kingdom, you don’t even need to be the one smiling to benefit.  Scientists from Hewlett Packard used an electromagnetic brain scan machine and a heart-rate monitor to detect the “mood-boosting values” of different kinds of stimuli.  For the tests, 109 volunteers were subjected to three kinds of stimuli: 


  • They were shown photos of friends, family, and loved ones
  • They were given chocolate to eat
  • They were given cash

Smiling faces in the photographs had far and away the most potent influence of participants’ moods.  “Participants who were shown a child’s smile experienced the same level of stimulation as they would have from eating 2,000 bars of chocolate,” the authors stated.  In terms of money, it would cost you $25,000 to buy the same amount of happiness generated by a child’s smile.

“The powerful emotions triggered when someone important in our lives smiles at us and we smile back changes our brain chemistry,” commented Dr. David Lewis, psychologist and author of The Secret Language of Success, who analyzed the tests.  Lewis also highlighted the importance of sincerity. Participants detected fake smiles, which had the opposite effect on mood.

    "I had a bad reaction from inadvertently breathing some vapors from the glue I was using to decorate a costume that I would be wearing in a play a couple of days later. My throat closed down and I could hardly speak. I felt terrible and had no energy. I couldn't imagine how on earth I would be able to perform, as I had many speaking lines to perform. After a session with Thomas, I quickly regained my energy and I was able to perform without difficulty. This really saved the day for me! Thanks, Thomas." -- JB, Actor, Fairfield, IA
    "I had chronic ankle pain due to working in an auto manufacturing plant and walking on concrete for most of my life. After a long-distance session, that actually took place while I was asleep, I woke up and had no pain in my ankles or anywhere else, for that matter. And, I was able to enjoy working outdoors all morning with my brother--all without a lick of pain. This really works." -- CF, Mechanic, Lexington, MO
    "I had a constant buzzing and ringing in my right ear that was driving me crazy. I always had to have a TV or radio on during the day and sleep with a fan on to mask the constant internal noise. I tried supplements that didn’t help and then visited an ENT physician and they really had no solution. Well, apparently our sessions have definitely had an impact. The buzzing has completely subsided and I only occasionally hear any ringing. This is such an amazing relief that it’s hard to express. Thanks again for your continued help and support, I couldn’t recommend the sessions highly enough. -- Best Regards, Tom R, Chicago
    (Thomas): During the group session, it became clear to me that there was some deep distress in Ken’s knees where I noticed the brilliant blue spectrums beginning to appear. During the session Ken said that he had briefly felt the pain in his knees intensify and then suddenly it was as if all the pain and discomfort he had been having just poured out through the bottom of his feet. That was it -- the pain was gone and never came back.
    "The self-treatments have helped me in healing some physical issues and I'm sleeping better than ever. I've also been trained by Thomas to use the Healing Spectrums in my work as a counselor and I seem to be able to 'tune in' more quickly to the core issues of my clients. This is really valuable to both me and my clients." -- Cheryl Bailey, Counselor, IA

    "Before the course, I was only sleeping for 2-3 hours a night, but since Thomas' course I'm sleeping unbelievably better! 8-9 hours every night. This technique is a true blessing." - Katherine, Counselor/Coach, NY
    “I have been very impressed by the strength of the energy when doing the self-treatments. Last night I was surprised how quickly I went from feeling restless to very relaxed with a short session. Thanks so much!” — Jill
    “After our session on Thursday I felt a smooth, blissful feeling for the next few hours. In general I continue to feel more settled, grounded and calm and I’m sleeping very deeply now.” — Mary
