Nothing vague about the Vagus Nerve
The theory provides insight into the autonomic nervous system and teaches you to slow down or activate the survival response. Affect how your body reacts: action or relaxation.
How do I react to stress, where am I on the stress ladder, what are my survival structures and beliefs are questions that become visible. By learning to feel which signals your body gives you and by acting on them, you break through obstructive patterns.
By learning how you can influence what your nervous system tells you, you can influence the well-being of your body and mind.
It’s all about safety, being connected to yourself. Am I ‘safe’? How does that actually feel? How do I bring my nervous system back to ‘safe’? The Polyvagal Theory helps you to ‘social engagement’ as the Americans call it: a deep connection with yourself, which strengthens relationships with others.
This way you influence a more harmonious life!
