Chapter 22: Sphenoid Release & Skull Articulation
Neck And Right TMJ Release, Intense Ligament Snapping In Skull
November 30: Difficult Skull Work, Jaw Wraps Around Neck
It was a restless night with many kriyas. I have much neck tension. From 6 to 7:30 am, I did a freestyle session. It was difficult because of neck tension. I stood, than sat and did spinal stretches, then lying on stomach with skull turns that gave some relief in neck. I had to go deep to center to allow the skull work. From 7:30 to 8:30 am, growing phase started and I rested. From 8:30 to 11:30 am, I did a lying session with work on skull and shoulders. It was difficult, like my head is twisting off with many facial bone movements. I wrote another tanka poem:
twisting apart foundations
new life comes from old.
break apart under pressure.
From 1 to 1:45 pm, I did a freestyle session standing the entire time! With swaying stretches, the vortex worked up the spine into the skull. From 5 to 6 pm, I did a freestyle session standing the entire time! There was crunching and popping all over. It did not hurt, but was tiring. From 6:30 to 8 pm, I did a sitting session with skull work, long holds and much crunching in right skull. There were moments when it felt like my jaw was wrapped around my neck and pushing up, but it did not release. It was difficult.
At 8:15 pm, while sitting, energy circled around my neck and the right TMJ crunched and shifted like nothing I have felt before. From 8:20 to 10 pm, I did a freestyle session ending with lying on back doing skull work. There was a long period of strong ligament snaps along all the sutures and skull bones with jaw popping. I thought I was going to die. It was hard to endure so I went to deep center. After this, I felt loose ligaments in the right cheekbone area and the entire right face has loosened bones. The TMJ areas are sore.
Elastic Skull Turns With Pressure On Sacrum, Hyoid Release
December 1: Constant Pops Of Left TMJ, Sharp Object In Throat
I feel tension on left TMJ and at base of skull in back on right side. From 5:45 to 8 am, I did a CCW torso rotation session with constant popping of left TMJ for about forty minutes. I did a lying on stomach position with much skull turning. Then I felt much pressure on the sacrum. I felt the entire skull as one elastic sheet turning to the left. My nose was running and itching I guess because the ethmoid moved. It was difficult to rise with pressure at opposite ends of spine. I feel like a nap, that last session was difficult.
Dream of hyoid bone breaking: I had a dream in the session. I reached to the area on the throat where the hyoid bone is and it came out of my neck in two halves broken it the middle. It seemed another bone came out of the neck, but I do not recall what it was. Is it an omen of a move that will happen or has it happened?
From 10 to 12 am, I did a freestyle session standing most of the time, then squat, then sitting and twisting torso stretches, then lying on side, and last lying on stomach. The majority was skull work with crunching in lower right occipital bone and mandible with much skull bone movement. Then energy went across shoulder backs and I felt a big snap horizontally and then felt a sharp object in the throat. Did the hyoid bone release? I feel energy circling around the atlas bone and the skull feels free from the spine. I feel like sleeping, my hair is totaled and my face and ear are chapped and sore. I am getting many shiver episodes lately.
From 12 to 12:30 pm, my rest turned into another session. From 3 to 5 pm, I did a sitting session. Skull work was deep in sphenoid wing near the zygmatic arch and down. There was much crunching and opening of area under jaw, occipital bone and shoulder. Near the end, a profound whiteout happened with a clear high-pitched tone. My lower back still hurts. From 5 to 8 pm, I took a nap with a strong growing reaction. From 8:30 to 10 pm, I did a sitting session. Starting out there was high energy with soft bone movement without crunches. The last thirty minutes were difficult. Many bones released including the TMJ, cheekbone, palatine, maxillae, clavicle and scapula. From 10:30 to 11 pm, I did a sitting session with twisting stretches up spine with hip and sacrum openings. From 11 pm to 1 am, I did a sitting session with much skull work. I am sore all over.
Maxillae & Mandible Open, Bliss Sensation In Body
December 2: Sustained Spontaneous Moves, Loud Skull Pops, Whiteout
I awoke at 5:30 am, but the growing reaction was so strong I could barely sit so I went back to bed. From 8:30 to 9 am, there were strong spontaneous spine stretches before rising, where higher-self took over. I could only allow them by centering deeply and trusting I would not get hurt. From 9 to 11:30 am, I did a freestyle session where spontaneous movement lasted for more than an hour! Spontaneous movements stretched the entire spine with dance-like movements and swaying. Interspersed with this was work in hip and ligament snapping in skull. The hip popped several times and there were several loud cracks in skull back in upper right. There was a long whiteout with the right ear feeling deafened and a clear high-pitched tone. Something tight at neck back released. Then I was in squat, and after that sitting with twisting of torso to left. It was a difficult session but easy to sit in center.
From 11:30 am to 12:40 pm, I did a lying on the stomach session. At first, it was nice, sinking into a blissful energetic sensation as tension rolled out of the body with skull turning. I have felt this blissful sensation for a week. Then there were the loudest pops all over the skull I have ever heard: Bang, bang, bang, with about five minutes of rapid popping. There were many releases in the shoulder and the right skull. After this, the front of the face opened with the sensation that the maxillae and mandible were floating. There was extreme pressure on the sacrum and sexual arousal most of the session. It was difficult.
From 12:50 to 2:15 pm, I did a lying on the stomach session, which produces the most relief of tension with the least effort. Work was on right temporal bone and down to mandible. From 5 to 5:30 pm, I did a difficult sitting session. Something released under the scapula near right shoulder. From 5:30 to 6:30 pm, I did a freestyle session that lasted for forty-five minutes and a sitting session. There was much snapping and popping in the maxillae and mandible. I do not want to open my mouth anymore. From 6:30 to 8 pm, I did a lying session. From 9:30 to 12, I have been lying with a strong growing reaction and much sweating. There were some cracks on the left shoulder and mandible. As I fell asleep, the energy in my body grew to a strong vibration. Then I felt stinging prickles and energy puffs all over the flesh. I was sweating strongly. It took me a long time to fall asleep because it was not comfortable. The suffocating heat was the worst.
Sphenoid, Cheekbone, Eye Orbits & Nose Releases
December 3: Suffocating Sweats, Skull Vortex, Childhood Memory
I awoke at 7 am, with dry mouth and still feel sore and stiff. From 7:30 to 8:30 am, I did a CCW torso rotation session for about thirty minutes. There was skull, TMJ and shoulder work with significant releases in right skull near temple, in TMJ and cheekbone. Energy spirals up and forms a skull vortex.
From 8:30 to 9:30 am, I did a freestyle session standing the entire time with much skull popping. Fluid movement in body increases, the freestyle sessions are like a swaying dance. I felt a release of muscles between the right scapula and spine. There was a snap and it felt like two muscles separated and went opposite ways. It was like previously it was an X and when apart as parallel lines. Several times, I felt something release on the outside right lower side of skull and slide across like an elastic band. Many times work went into the tender area of the cheekbone and sphenoid wing. I had to go to deep center to allow most of the work.
Insight about spine shortening: An increasing sensation in the last months is that my spinal column gets shorter. Before it was like the hips and tailbone were way down there while energy worked in the skull. As the transformation continues, energetically the body grows toward being one unit and all parts are worked together. It is like there is no longer distance between the body parts. I know there is much more to do. I keep reminding myself growing takes its time. I wrote a tanka poem about it:
One step at a time
I walk on the path of life
finding no shortcut.
Accepting the laws of nature
a fruit will fall when its ripe.
From 10:30 to 11 am, I did a sitting session with work in sphenoid wing and cheekbone, which still hurts. I felt muscles releasing under cheekbone and down to shoulder crook. After this, I rested but tension builds fast. From 11:45 am to 12:45 pm, I did a freestyle session while standing with swaying and body crunching with much work in right skull and shoulder. Starting was difficult as I am stiff and sore but once energy increased, it was not bad. The rhythmic swaying action is effective to loosen skeletal bones. I stand with quiet mind allowing my body to be loose like a rag doll to allow the spontaneous body movements. When I stand long, the toes and fingers get puffy and fill with fluid.
There were several cracks with ligament releases. Both shoulders and TMJ’s were worked together. There were many releases in skull, shoulder and neck at a deep level, which took strong energy to pull apart adhesions in there. Increasingly, a smooth elastic sheet covers the entire upper body, the body rotates counterclockwise and muscles relax. It feels open in right shoulder crook.
The main line of work is from sphenoid wing, down at angle under cheekbone, down to mandible in molar region, then down to clavicle near sternum, across to shoulder joint, then down back to scapulae, across to T1 vertebrae, then in a diagonal down to right hip. There is another line going down from TMJ, circling around occipital bone to base of skull, then down right side of spine between scapula bone and down to sacrum.
From 1:30 to 2:30 pm, I did lying on stomach session. From 5 to 5:30 pm, I did a sitting session. From 5:40 to 6:25 pm, I did a freestyle session with standing, squat, sitting twist and lying on side. It was difficult work. Several times, it felt like bones were sticking into my flesh at backs of shoulder tops and I felt muscles burning. From 7 to 8:45 pm, I did a sitting session with head crunching and much popping. At the end, spontaneous skull crunches occurred in broad bands in various directions. I endured way beyond comfort feeling it is near to finishing. I felt pain, as if the bones were sticking into my neck at the back.
The facial bones loosened horizontally across the nose and eye orbit edges. The facial bones, right jaw and clavicle feel loose. It is strange to have that feeling. I felt much pain in the right ear where a dog bit me when I was a child. I recalled that memory and pain, and cried praying for this to be over soon. This was the most intense skull session so far. I am sore. The left side of skull and body are involved in these sessions, but I do not notice the left bodywork so much because there are fewer adhesions. I fell asleep to high energy and sweating.
