Your vagus nerve tells your body to relax and take time to repair and heal. It is important you deliberately activate and strengthen your vagus nerve on a daily basis. Regularly activating your vagus nerve will improve your physical, emotional, mental and vibrational health and well being with immediate results. A simple exercise such as taking slow deep breaths will activate the vagus nerve to tell the rest of your body and to switch back into healing mode and higher brain mode.
Many of us don't breathe properly on a daily basis. It's very important to learn to breathe properly. To do this you must learn to breathe fully and this includes breathing deeply into the abdomen. Your diaphragm is made to move more than it does when you take shallow breaths. Breathing deeply activates your vagus nerve which harnesses your calm power and makes you feel happy and relaxed.
Shortened psoas muscles caused by stress, sitting for a long time and shallow breathing can result in chronic back pain. Lying with a pillow under your knees and breathing deeply for ten minutes can help to release these muscles and soothe a sore back. When you relax your psoas you relax gut and two nerve centres. The lumbar nerves tighten or relax the psoas depending on the messages going between your brain and gut. The solar nerves connect where the upper psoas and diaphragm join just behind your stomach and they register tension or ease.
Your two amygdala are working 24/7 to decide if there is a threat. Your amygdala triggers your fight and flight response. If there is a threat the back part of the amygdala switches on to give you the energy to flee or stand up to the threat. If no threat is found the front part of your amygdala switches on and lets you feel safe and happy. Thinking happy thoughts on purpose can activate the front part of your amgydala to make you feel happy more of the time.
Your heart generates an electromagnetic field made up of vibrations. Your thoughts and emotions affect this field and are shared through vibrations with others. You can feel anothers shared vibrations just as they can feel yours. When you feel happy you give off one vibration and when you feel sad or angry another. Your heartbeat influences your amygdalas. When your heartbeat becomes more coherent you begin to feel happy again.
Most of us have that constant voice in the back of our minds, this is known as the storyteller and sits in the left side of your brain. You need to quiet this voice to find the calm wise voice beyond it. The right side of your brain collects information about your emotions and the emotions we sense in others. It also registers all sensations in your body and any changes in how you feel vibrationally. You need to start noticing how you feel more often.
Your corpus callosum is a thick bundle of neurons that connects the two sides of your brain. Stress decreases this bundle of neurons. To improve this part of your brain you need to be aware of what you feel as well as what you are seeing and hearing. If what you see, hear and sense match you will feel at ease. If what you see, hear and sense do not match you will feel uneasy.
Your frontal lobe is home to your higher brain functions. You can think of your frontal lobe as the cool calm clever and kind inner adult. The cool part helps you to stop and think before you react. The calm part helps you to keep focused on something you want to achieve. The clever part comes up with creative solutions and the kind part manages and gives meaning to your emotions turning them up or down as needed.
