Have you ever been unhappy with how you look? If you have, you probably simply gave yourself a makeover and were alright again (or needed another one).
But what about how you feel on the inside? Have you ever considered giving yourself an emotional makeover when you felt bad for too long (by seeing a counsellor, psychotherapist, or just someone you trust)?
It’s somewhat taboo to talk about how bad we feel, and to seek support to help us sort out our emotional life. Many people tend to only do something about their emotional turmoil once the pain gets unbearable and they don’t see any way out of their misery.
This is like only doing something about your looks when you’re smelly and dirty, your clothes torn and your hair full of lice. No-one lives like this if they don’t have to! The difference is that feeling like a mess is socially acceptable (as long as you hide it), while looking like a mess isn’t. It’s a pity we can’t see our emotions – I think we wouldn’t neglect our feelings so much if we could.
First things first: If you do feel that abysmally bad, it’s best to see a mental health professional. I’m not advocating that energy work with the Emotion Code is a replacement for psychotherapy – it’s not. It’s simply a complementary way of activating your body’s and psyche’s innate healing ability.
But if you do want to give it a try, it’s a very interesting experience and a different way of getting an emotional makeover:
In the Emotion Code, we work with a concept called „trapped emotions“ as the main root of our suffering. Dr. Bradley Nelson, the creator of the Emotion Code, explains what those trapped emotions are:
„As you live through the days and years of your life you are continually experiencing emotions of one sort or another. Life can be difficult and emotions can sometimes feel overwhelming. All of us experience negative emotional extremes at times. Most of us would rather forget some of these challenges, but unfortunately, the influence of these events can stay with us in the form of trapped emotions.
Sometimes, for reasons that we do not yet understand, emotions do not process completely. In these cases, instead of simply experiencing the emotion and then moving on, the energy of the emotion somehow becomes “trapped” within the physical body.
So instead of moving beyond your angry moment, or a temporary bout with grief or depression, this negative emotional energy can remain within your body, potentially causing significant physical and emotional stress.
Most people are amazed to find out that their “emotional baggage” is more literal than they had imagined. Trapped emotions actually consist of well-defined energies that have a shape and form. Although they are not visible, they are very real.“
(From the book „The Emotion Code: How To Release Your Trapped Emotions for Abundant Health, Love and Happiness“ by Dr. Bradley Nelson, p. 5)
Wow! When I first heard about this, it seemed like a foreign concept, but I was open to trying new things – especially because I had nothing to lose: When a friend introduced me to the Emotion Code about three years ago, I was in deep despair and had lost all hope because I was unemployed and just couldn’t find a job. We were talking on Skype and she kindly did a session with me right then.
I can’t tell you how relieved I was after that – I felt light and hopeful for the first time in a while. I felt new self-confidence and that I WAS capable of changing my own situation for the better. And I was hooked – I wanted to know more about The Emotion Code, this powerful tool that had helped me out of my bleak state of mind. So I got the book and started practising obsessively.
Long story short: After working on all the emotional turmoil that I was going through, I decided that this would be a great way of helping other people, too, and after quite a few Emotion Code sessions to work on my fears and doubts about this, I started Energy Sessions.
I am so happy that I have found the Emotion Code and was able to help myself and other people with it. However, when I explain to others how it works, they often misunderstand, especially with those who have never heard of energy work at all. That’s why I’d like to use the next few weeks to delve into all the most fascinating aspects of the Emotion Code. After all, it enables you to help people even across continents – this still blows my mind!!
Next week, I’ll explain what muscle-testing is and how YOU can do it yourself and use it to get answers from your subconscious! Stay tuned!
Talk to you next week,
