The Seattle Space Needle* with it’s 360 degree wall of floor to ceiling windows and rotating restaurant bar, is a fun image to use to release your head upwards.
Without the jaw, the head, or skull to be more precise, looks a bit like the top of the Space Needle.
It helps to know that the roof of your mouth is the base of your skull. Everything above the roof of your mouth floats up away from your neck vertebrae.
To find your 360 wall of windows, use your finger tips and trace all the way around the rim of your skull. Start at the back, the (occiput), and walk your fingers over your ears and cheekbones all the way around to your nose.
Try turning your head as though it were the top of Space Needle. Does it free something if you imagine that you have a 360 wall of windows all the way around your head?
I like to imagine myself having a fancy cocktail as I look out at the view from inside my head.
