I’ve been focusing on the back for too long, should I hard mew on the green spot rather than the red spot?
Appreciate any advice
Both are important from what we know. Your whole tongue should stick to the palate.
Of course, focus on getting all of it up. On a side note, I think that those of us who can't easily get the back up are doing themselves a disservice in not just focusing on the front. Especially if lacking forward projection, it's going to do a lot more than trying in vain to make the posterior tongue fit when it can't, at the expense of what can be easily controlled. (I have a high palate, the back tongue is not going to stay up no matter what I do)
I think everyone should just push the tongue forward (above the front teeth), it's simple and easy. I also find that when I push the tongue forward it naturally brings the back of my tongue up, as long as I'm pushing above the front teeth, what I notice in myself is that when I push the tongue against the teeth the back of the tongue doesn't come up, if you push forward in the proper place it forces the tongue to come up.
I agree. If you want forward growth the force should go that way. I had forward growth with slight flaring of my upper incisors when my jaws and posture were ideal. Once I learned to suction I then applied pressure forward and that’s when I start feeling sensations around my mid face.
