I sometimes experience sadness while meditating. I feel like crying and try to let it happen, but instead I start to yawn intensively and afterwards the moment of sadness seems to have moved out of reach. It is like my brain wants to prevent me from experiencing the sadness, so it does that by making me yawn. The thing is, I would like to be able to overcome this protective yawning behavior and stay with the sadness. I feel it is there and needs my attention; I want to acknowledge and give it space, but my brain won't let me. Does anyone recognize this? If so, how do you deal with it?
