Emotions and the nervous system

In ancient times the bowels were called the seat of emotions. Everything we do energetically affects our nervous system – either positively or negatively. Even too much excitement can stress out our nervous system. Unpleasant emotions can stop the peristalsis action of our bowels.

In Part 1, I explained how our inherited weaknesses in the lining of our bowels are connected with our nervous system and how different foods we eat can cause us to feel those weaknesses when they are being irritated. Well, our emotions can do the same! Every emotion felt by the nervous system has an effect on the blood supply to the colon. Fear and anxiety can cause constipation or diarrhoea. Over half of all bowel disorders have as much to do with unbalanced emotions and past traumas as the bad foods we eat.

We have to start to become more aware that we are beings of energy and that energy can be healing or destructive to all our different bodies.

You and I are spiritual beings just having a fun trip in this vehicle we call our bodies, and we have to learn how to balance our spiritual, mental, and emotional states to help keep an alkaline flow of energy that soothes our nervous system.

It really does all start and end with the energy or chi flowing through our nervous system and chakras. If we want to open all of our chakras we have to learn how to sooth the nervous system and be aware of our state of the subconscious mind.

The things that help soothe our nervous system the most is meditation, deep breathing exercises, stretching, time spent in nature, alkaline foods, water, and of course yoga.

One of the best ways to achieve balance in this area is to have more self-love, appreciation, gratitude, forgiveness, and control over the ego. These are all healing energies that help strengthen our inherent weaknesses.

I really hope this article has helped to bring more attention to the importance of the emotions and our nervous system.
