Why are yawns contagious?

When someone yawns, it makes me want to imitate them.

Yawning is a physiological phenomenon that unconsciously tells others that I am relaxing.

This social reflex, inherited from my animal part, indicates that I agree with the proposal of soothing.


When I yawn, I free myself physically and energetically.

Physical release

By yawning, my body evacuates muscular or nervous tensions that could hinder my rest. Yawning is a natural self-relaxation tool, just like stretching.

It activates sleep hormones to prepare me for a good night’s rest.

Otherwise, when I yawn, it opens the Eustachian tube. This allows to regulate the pressure in the ears, especially during the descent in a plane.

Emotional release

However, the real secret of yawning is its energetic action.

My energetic body accumulates blockages.

I have several options for evacuating the accumulated energy.

Stretching the jaw is a natural release valve.


Emotional memories cause energy blockages in the body.

When an emotional wound is healed, it is common to yawn.

What are the energetic benefits of yawning?

It is a natural relaxation behavior.

Too often, I have been taught to put my hand in front of my mouth and to yawn discreetly.

By yawning fully, I facilitate the release of energy blockages.
