The Vagus Nerve is the longest of all the cranial nerves, connecting the brain to the heart, lungs, and nervous system. It is responsible for digestion, heart rate, the immune system, and blood pressure.
The Vagus Nerve is also a vital part of the connection between the head and the heart. It carries information between the two sources, which helps to communicate between your personality and soul.
Read on to learn more about the Vagus Nerve and the steps you can take to activate it.
What is the Purpose of the Vagus Nerve?
The Vagus Nerve is the dominant connection between your head and your heart. The brain sends signals to your heart to allow for emotional processing and other cognitive functions. The heart also sends signals back to the brain during high-emotional states. This reinforces the experience of extreme emotions, such as stress, and makes it more difficult to think straight.
The Vagus Nerve can be used to send purposeful messages throughout the body. When stimulated, you can send signals to relax and be at ease. This can shift your consciousness into a more peaceful state, as well as allow you to release pent-up energy in the body and heal from past traumas.
The Vagus Nerve and Animal Communication
Creating a more powerful signal between the head and the heart can increase empathic abilities and help enhance communication with animals. Your brain and heart are better able to communicate with each other and pass the information you are absorbing from the animal.
Since animal communication is intuitive and energetic, your heart and brain may pick up different signals. Through their connection, they are better able to process these signals and decipher a message.
5 Tips to Activate your Vagus Nerve
1. Practice controlled breathing of the diaphragm
Deep breathing through your diaphragm can help strengthen and tone the vagus nerve. Conscious breathing also helps slow heart rate and lower blood pressure. Simply take deep breaths while letting the air fill your lungs and stomach. Then, slowly let it out.
2. Use cold therapy
Cold therapy is another way to tone the vagus nerve and strengthen the connection between the head and heart. You can expose yourself to cold weather, take cold showers, and more. This is known to have significant effects on stress reduction.
3. Meditate daily
Meditation helps increase mindfulness and reduce stress. By relieving yourself of the tension in your body, the connection between the head and the heart will have greater strength. You should meditate frequently for the best results.
4. Enjoy creative self-expression
Modes of creative self-expression, such as dancing, singing, and painting can put you into a flow state that sharpens the Vagus Nerve and reinforce a strong unconscious passing of information between the head and heart.
5. Utilise energy healing
There are many modes of energy healing, such as Reiki energy healing, that can unblock the energies stuck in your body and strengthen the flow of energy and information passing through your nerves. This also helps to maintain balanced chakras, which are critical for a profound connection between the personality and the soul.
