I caught the Hiccups…

The other day I caught the hiccups.  Now this was a pleasant surprise as it’s been years since I recall ever catching one.  It lasted for about 15 minutes en route home one afternoon.  I was on the tube; the initial hiccups were unexpected and sounded pretty loud, which was a bit embarrassing.  I later found the rhythm but was very unsuccessful in getting rid of it.  I tried holding my breath, pacing my breathing and tried to provoke sneezing, all with no luck.  Then it stopped.  Looking back at this experience, I’m not sure what exactly caused it but I believe taking my mind of the present moment played a role.  I know it’s an involuntary action and there are many superstitions around it so this may be another plausible reason! This makes me think about life and realize the power of focus.  A lot of times, when we take our minds of the subject everything we want to happen happens on its own.  Also, the more we focus on anything, the more prevalent it becomes.  I tend to observe many parallels with everyday life and universal laws; think this is another one.

I would love to hear any feedback, suggestions or stories about your own journey…
