Vagus Nerve Somatic Workshop

Vagus Nerve Somatic Workshop

The Firefly Team, Danielle, Toni and Amy, welcome you to join them for a 2 hour somatic workshop on the 27th of January. 
The intention of this workshop is to guide souls into unlocking the natural healing powers of their vagus nerve

The vagus nerve is the longest cranial nerve in the body, and has 80% of its branches in the parasympathetic nervous system. The PNS is our rest and digest system which induces an anti-inflammatory response throughout the body. The vagus nerve controls our brain-gut axis and dictates our neuroceptive awareness. It controls all of our bodily functions, and has direct influences on the various biological systems including the neuroendocrine system, immune system, cardiovascular system, respiratory system, circulatory system, lymph system, reproductive system, digestive system, muscular-skeletal system, urinary and excretory systems.

Essentially, via the vagus nerve, we can counteract responses from the sympathetic nervous system (more commonly known as, stress response), and release trapped energy in the body that was impinged through cyclical events of pain, trauma, stress, and overwhelm.

Souls will be guided into their embodied network, to connect with their internal energetic and electrical system and in doing so, connect with any past traumatic and painful imprints that have been lying stagnant viscerally in the body, neuroceptive pathway, soma, nerve cells, fascia, connective tissue, muscles, nerve circuits at a synaptic level.

The brain-body axis holds the memories of past painful experiences and the imprints of trauma, which inevitably dictates our entire life. The imprints inform how we show up in the world, how we perceive reality, how we engage with others, how our senses have been attuned, how we feel in our vessel, and much more. These traumatic imprints are visceral and are stored in our nerve cells, mitochondria, muscle cells, fascia and connective tissues, organs, gut. We have to deep dive into the body, clear it out and get empty, so we can truly free ourselves from the chains of the past, om a visceral, cellular and genetic level.

Techniques that will be implemented in the workshop will include but are not limited to:- Subconscious unravelling to gauge what limits beliefs are neurally firing in the limbic system, specifically the amygdala, hippocampus and thalamus all located in the emotional brain

– consciously connected breathwork to stimulate an afferent to efferent vagal process, with the aim to switch off the defence mechanisms and threat responses in the autonomous nervous system

-inner child connection to resurface old memories that are running subconsciously

-activation of the parasympathetic nervous system to signal anti-inflammatory biochemical responses within the internal system

-brain-gut-body coherence techniques including body scanning and chakras activation aimed

-recalling, reframing and reimprinting protocols to aid cellular release and regeneration

– guided trauma cycle completion to process old emotions, thoughts, perceptions, sensations, and neuroceptions

– guidance into neurogenic swaying, shaking and tremoring for releasing the imprints of trauma, pain and stress from the nervous system and somatic system

– gut massaging and rolling for digestive system healing

– Engaging the interoceptive, proprioceptive, neuroceptive pathways to connect with one’s inner sense of self

– various sensory stimulation

– somatic movement, fascial stretching, fascial manoeuvring, in alignment with releasing trigger points and pain markers

– cranio-sacral techniques, acupressure, and working on meridian points

– vagus nerve stimulation and toning through various portals such chanting, gargling, rapid eye movement, massage, muscle contraction and pressure, breath patterns

– direction on neuroplasticity and one’s allostatic load (resilience to stress and pain)

– guidance on upholding good energetic hygiene such as morning routines; hoy and cold therapy; caffeine consumption; energetic clearing, cleansing and smudging; food choices; natural supplements; sensory stimulus; homeopathy; bathing; electromagnetic consumption; bed time routine and sleeping patterns; fasting protocols for cellular autophagy

We will work together to help you to release any stored and undischarged nervous and stress energy that may be stuck in your body in relation to a traumatic episode or event, to release the imprint of it on the body

This workshop can be benefited by absolutely everyone. It is particularly effective for souls who have experienced, or currently experiencing, traumatic events such as:

• adverse childhood trauma such as domestic abuse, alcoholism in the home, abandonment, homelessness, neglect, parental divorce

• sexual abuse such as non consensual sex

• addiction problems such as food, drugs, alcohol, sex, shopping

• tragic and traumatic accident, involved or witnessed as trauma can be secondary

• crime victimisation

• domestic violence including physical and verbal abuse

• failure experiences affirming self limiting prophecies

• phobias, which are learnt

• sudden death of a loved one and deep losses such as miscarriage, spouse, child

• ongoing stress, panic attacks and anxiety showing a nervous system stuck in a chronic state of sympathetic response

• cycles of depression and deep lowness showing a nervous system in dorsal vagal shut down state

• physical traumas and traumatic injuries

• outer body experiences, cycles of dissociation, flashbacks, struggling with PTSD

• women with fertility issues, conception and menstruation problems

• libido problems such as inability to orgasm

• chronic pain, joint pain, ongoing inflammation and regular flare ups including fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis

• distorted eating habits such as binging and restrictive patterns

• suffering with migraines

• stuck in dysfunctional behavioural patterns

• consistent ruminating thoughts

• poor sleep and insomnia

• digestive issues such as IBS, bloating, gas, crohns

• skin problems such as acne and eczema

• ongoing throat problems such as strep, thyroid, ulcers, sore throat

• attention issues (eg ADHD) and memory problems (eg brain fog) • self harm as means of pain relief

• immune system issues showing up as asthma, crohns, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, allergies

• cardiac issues such as high blood pressure, racing heart beats, Arrhythmia

• respiratory issues such as asthma, irregular breathing rate, COPD

• sensory issues resulting in ailments such as vertigo and tinnitus
