Is there any significance to jaw bones and the energy points?

For example, whenever I do deep meditation, I always become more aware of my jaw. In addition, I feel like I need to stretch it, like it has been scrunched for months and needs to be ironed out.

I have also read articles about the jaw line being a something others subconsciously determine how powerful a person you are, and is also a determinant of attraction?

Any advice?

I'm inclined to think that it has to do with something specifically about you and your jaw. If I were to guess, I would say that you are a person who tends to hold tension in your jaw by clenching it in response to stress. If you do that, some of your "spiritual" energy becomes "trapped" in the jaw.

The first time I went to a chiropractor, I remember quite vividly the experience of reliving certain specific memories during my adjustment, memories of events that I had long forgotten. Apparently I was "holding" those memories in my body. For the next few days, I felt sort of a black pain in my body, a kind of pain I had never felt before, as the tension of those memories was released. But I was fine after that, and it never happened again.

When you meditate, you should notice your entire body relaxing, including your jaw. But you will notice more those parts of your body that you habitually hold tension in. Meditation releases that tension. For many people it is the shoulders and back where they hold tension, instead of the jaw.

Good answer. I think you hit the nail on the head.

Back2Basics Hi! I wish you happiness. I read your question and kept it in me for a day. I believe your soul is sending you a message. I use a dream dictionary to intrepret the symbols I recieve. Here is a copy of the interpretation of jaw.


To see the jaws of an animal in your dream, indicate a misunderstanding. It may also mean that you are rushing into things. Alternatively, the dream suggests that someone or some situation is taking a large bite of your time, energy or some aspect of yourself.

To see your own jaw in your dream, represents your stubbornness, determination and forcefulness. You may need to have more willpower and fortitude in some situation. To dream that your jaws are tight, indicates unexpressed angers and other powerful feelings which you are holding back.

To dream that you break or dislocate your jaw, suggests that you are compromising your own beliefs and principles.
