    The Dancing Jaw

    Does anyone know possibly old Indian legend about the dancing jaw?  How this might relate to tardive dysconetia (sp) ? And how it may relate to the coming of God and the fulfillment of His promises?

    it is due to excessive wearing of teeth due to old age or neurological problem.

      Could very well possibly be same symptom...but this is old American Indian Legend and Religion I am looking for.

    Here is the theory behind the dancing jaw:  As a Native American or Native American Orthodox practitioner either performs rituals or smokes (possibly marijuana) - a higher degree of balance is achieved as the ear begins to pick up higher and higher frequencies (toward God or gods).  When a certain level is mastered, the jaw begins to "dance."  It moves (usually from side to side - symptom similar to involuntary jaw movement of tardive dysconetia). 

    The Native American continues to smoke, realizing the tongue (the tastebuds of which are attaching themselves to different areas of the mouth and immediate throat) is also "dancing."  The dancing tongue is what causes the dancing jaw.  As the tastebuds attach to the different areas (until all tastebuds have attached themselves and have been released through smoking) the gods or God is summoned (remember - toward frequency of God or gods) - in this manner, God or gods assist and at the same time the immune system is triggered (tastebuds to different areas of mouth or throat). 

    God or gods then grant an immunity to the related diseases or sickness - or heal a personally suffered disease or sickness.  The end result is immunity and healing (health) toward physical eternal life if the Native American continues the ritual or smoking without fear (He/She feels guilt free or rectified in life's choices and responses to circumstance).
