The Emotion Code and The Body Code were developed by Dr. Bradley Nelson. Below are some of our most frequently asked questions.
What is the Emotion Code?
The Emotion Code is an Energy Healing method designed to find emotional baggage and release it.
What is The Body Code?
The Body Code is an amazing way to find and clear imbalances in the body.
Through muscle testing we are able to connect with your spirit and communicate with it, much like a computer programmer communicates with a computer. We are able to test for imbalances in the body systems such as muscular or skeletal. We can find out about your organs and glands. We can find toxicities and excesses such as chemical toxicities and excess stress hormone. The Body Code includes the Emotion Code, so we are also able to find and release trapped emotions that tend to lie at the very root of a lot of physical, emotional, and mental problems. It is incredible how many things we say all of the time happen literally in our body. For example –> a lot of foot pain comes when we “can’t stand” something, –> stiff neck and shoulders from “the weight of the world” and excess stress. –> Pain in our hips and glutes when someone is being a “pain in our butt”. We are excited to share with you the Body Code and discover the imbalances that we can correct so that your body can heal and perform at its best!
We sometimes compare what we do in the Body Code to wanting to vacuum your living room carpet. You are completely capable and aware of HOW to vacuum and you have the SKILLS to do it. Now imagine that same carpet is covered in loads of laundry, dirty dishes, shoes, children’s toys, school work, office work, chairs, cushions, etc. The task of vacuuming the same carpet is now currently impossible, not because you have forgotten or unlearned how to vacuum, and not even because you have lost the skills to do it. The reason is because there are layers of too may things on top of the carpet to be able to vacuum it properly. In the Body Code, we remove the laundry, dirty dishes, shoes, children’s toys, school work, office work, chairs, cushions, etc., or IMBALANCES so that you can vacuum your carpet, or HEAL YOUR BODY. You already have the ability. You have been given that ability divinely and you already intuitively know how. We tend to pile so much extra garbage on top that we are no longer able to see the carpet, let alone vacuum it. The Body Code and the Emotion Code allow us to remove those imbalances and allow you to heal yourself.
What is a Trapped Emotion?
Most people recognize that they have some sort of “emotional baggage” from past life events. This emotional baggage is real and consists of actual energies from intense emotional events that we’ve experienced that are still stuck in our physical bodies. These energies, aka “Trapped Emotions” distort the normal energy field of the body creating pain, malfunction, depression, anxiety, PTSD, phobias, and all manner of disease. Emotional baggage is very real, and although it’s invisible it can really affect your happiness, your success and your health. It’s like lugging around a suitcase from every difficult event you’ve gone through- eventually the load gets too heavy not to notice. I call each ‘suitcase’ a Trapped Emotion- a bit of emotional energy that was created, by you, during an emotional event, and got stuck in your body somewhere.
How is releasing Trapped Emotions beneficial?
Releasing these and other negative energies allows our energy to flow freely without blockages–which allows our minds and bodies to heal the way they were created to heal themselves. Most people describe releasing Trapped Emotions as helping them to feel much lighter. As we let go of these energies, which previously were burdens, we are able to feel our anxieties dissipate; fears and phobias disappear; forgiveness becomes easier; hurtful memories dissipate; physical pains improve; addictions that we thought we couldn’t beat become conquerable; the love we try to give or that is being given to us can be felt with out going through a negative filter; relationships are improved or created; hope that has previously not seemed to exist begins to lift us, peace becomes attainable; and we are able to see our true selves and others clearly.
What is Muscle Testing?
Muscle testing is a noninvasive tool we can use to identify imbalances in the body. The science behind it is similar to a lie detector test or a polygraph. In a polygraph, a person is hooked up to sensitive electrodes and asked certain questions. The person’s answers generate a certain electrical response in the body, which is read and graphed by the machine, showing if the answers are true or false. This is done on a very delicate, minute scale. The muscles of the body are also affected by this electrical state- so we can use them to show this same response, just on a more pronounced, larger scale. Any muscle will become weakened in a state of incongruence or falsehood, making resistance difficult. Conversely, muscles will remain strong and able to resist when in a state of congruency or truth. What’s nice is that muscle testing allows us to access important information about health, we just have to know what questions to ask, then apply the resistance to a muscle and get our answers!
Why do you use Magnets?
Just like a magnifying glass will intensify sunlight enough to start a fire, magnets can act as an amplifier for the energy of your thought and intention, enough to produce a change in the body.
The intentions and thoughts we have are energy. Magnets are energy. Your body is energy. Because of this, one can have an effect on the other.
When we identify a trapped emotion with The Emotion Code, we simply must intend to release it, using a magnet to amplify this signal and put it into the body. We use the Governing Meridian as the entrance point for the amplified intention energy, because the Governing Meridian is an energy reservoir that connects directly to all the acupuncture meridians of the entire body. So when you put energy into the Governing Meridian, it flows instantly throughout the body and the trapped emotion is released!
What is a Heart Wall?
During times of emotional pain or distress, your heart can be really hurt or injured- this is where the words “heartache” and “heartbreak” come from. Sometimes we need to put up a form of protection, or a “wall” around the heart – but you can’t build a wall of nothing, right? What ends up being used as “building materials” are the most common excess energies in the body- Trapped Emotions. The problem is that the Heart-Wall doesn’t dissolve on its own, even if you don’t need it anymore. Having a Heart-Wall long-term is like living in a bomb shelter- it’s necessary short-term to protect you while the “bombs” are falling, but if you continue to “live” in there you’ll feel sad, disconnected, frustrated and you could even end up with heart disease or other heart problems down the road. The Heart-Wall can be removed, one emotion at a time- freeing you to live from your heart, create abundance and find true love. Now that’s what life is all about!
What should I expect after an Emotion Code session?
After an Emotion Code session, there is a processing time for the energetic changes to take place and be assimilated by the body. This period usually lasts one to three days. Drinking lots of water is one thing that you can do to hydrate your cells to help the process to be as fast and smooth as possible. Individuals may not notice anything at all during the processing period. Or they may feel relaxed, as if something heavy has been lifted from their shoulders. It is not uncommon to have some emotional swings during the processing period. You may feel extra tired or have waves of sadness or other echoes of the emotions that were released during your session. If you experience any severe or extremely bothersome symptoms, these are not related to Energy Healing and you should contact your therapist, or medical provider.
