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.
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.
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.
I am discovering what to do with my emotions.
If I yawn when I wake up, it is because during the night memories were released.
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.
