I've been having relaxation issues with my tongue.   embarassed   Sad  This could make for a good joke if it were funny.

Lately, it seems if I get "too" relaxed it feels like I'm going to swallow my tongue or saliva gathered in my throat makes me swallow and I lose my relaxed stated and have to start over.

Does anyone recommend a way to help keep a stray tongue in check or what to do when you have to swallow?   cheesy

If you feel any need to swallow, do so. If you're aware enough of your body to have to do it, you're not tranced enough for it to be a problem.

If you're worried about swallowing your tongue, tilt your head forward a little.

Yeah astralspinner sounds right.  I would agree and say it sounds like you got your head tilted back too far, thus causing your tongue to fall back when you get relaxed.

Thanks!

I wasn't worried just annoyed and irritated.

Good link, Major. I like jilola's info about pressing tongue to roof of mouth and adding a small bit of suction as well as Jame's book suggestion for Paul Wilson's calm series.

My question MadLord is how do you get your jaw that relaxed!!!?Huh I'd love to know because I have the opposite problem. I always have tongue to roof of mouth, but I further that with clenched jaw.

I do all kind's of jaw exercises and stretches. Alexander technique was mentioned in that thread as well. I've worked with Feldenkrais method.

All very interesting indeed.

It's an energetic action, too, if you work with TCM, tai chi, chi kung, etc, to keep the tongue touched to the roof of the mouth. Completes the energy circuit.
