Can you relate to the term “emotional baggage”? Everyone seems to have some and we all recognize that it is not a good thing, but what is it? And how do we get rid of it?
The Emotion Code, created by Dr. Bradley Nelson, calls this emotional baggage “trapped emotions.” According to Dr. Nelson, emotional energy can become trapped in the body when we are overwhelmed or traumatized, when our defenses are down, or when we are unable to fully process emotions. In addition, blocking or “stuffing” an emotion can cause it to become trapped.
What’s Wrong with Emotional Baggage?
These trapped emotions, until they are brought to conscious awareness and released, interfere with the healthy flow of life force energy in the body. This can affect our physical, emotional and mental wellbeing, our relationships, and our ability to fully express our creativity and gifts with the world. Trapped emotions take a toll on our energy levels as energy is diverted to maintain all this baggage.
It is estimated that the average person has collected 300-400 trapped emotions. That’s a lot of emotional baggage! Wouldn’t it be great if we could unload some of this? Thanks to Dr. Nelson, we now have one more way to do this. The Emotion Code allows us to quickly and easily identify and release trapped emotions. In fact, you can learn to do this for yourself.
How Does It Work?
The process is simple: muscle testing is used to identify a single trapped emotion that the body is ready to release. Once enough information has been obtained about this emotion, such as the age when it became trapped and where it is held in the body, it is released by running a magnet several times along the Governing meridian (usually down the back).
It looks very simple but the effects can be very profound. Some people feel better almost instantly, for some the changes are very subtle and seem to come over time. Many people report feeling “lighter” after an Emotion Code session, as if a weight has been lifted from them.
Emotion Code can be effective in releasing chronic pain, relationship blocks, and anxiety, among many other things. While it would be unwise to claim that trapped emotions cause disease, Dr. Nelson says that he has never treated someone with a disease or condition that did not have any trapped emotions that were contributing to the problem.
But I Don’t Remember Where All My Emotional Baggage Came From!
One of the best features of this technique is that it allows us to bring to conscious awareness many issues from the past about which you have no conscious memory. We access the wisdom of the subconscious mind through a form of muscle testing to get the information we need to release trapped emotions.
Some of our trapped emotions were actually handed down to us at conception from our parents. Most of us carry some ancestral emotional baggage. These inherited emotions can also be released with Emotion Code. Not only does it release from us but it also releases from all the previous generations who passed this on to us. This can bring profound healing within families.
Emotion Code works well for all ages, especially children. You are probably aware that many of your issues are based on experiences from childhood. What a great gift to help children let go of the emotional baggage they’ve already picked up and freeing them from a lifetime of dealing with it!
If you’d like to learn more about Emotion Code, Dr. Nelson’s book, The Emotion Code: How to release your trapped emotions for abundant health, love and happiness, is a great place to start. He does an excellent job of explaining difficult energetic concepts in simple, clear terms. The book also provides everything you need to know to get started using the Emotion Code.

When you think of meditation, what images come to mind? Sitting cross-legged on the floor for hours? Emptying your mind and holding perfectly still?
This is what many people picture when they think of meditation—not very appealing. And if the benefits of meditation aren’t obvious, it’s not surprising that few put in the effort to practice it.
Meditation comes in many forms. You may be surprised to find that you already participate in some form or another.
