Where would you be without your emotions? If the sum total of all your experiences makes up the tapestry of your life, it is the emotions you have experienced that give that tapestry its color.
Our emotions really do give color to our lives. Try to imagine for a moment a world where no emotions could occur. No joy would be possible. No feelings of happiness, bliss, charity or kindness. No love would be felt, no positive emotions of any kind.
On this imaginary emotionless planet, there would be no negative emotions either. No sorrow, no anger, no feelings of depression, and no grief. To live on such a planet would be to merely exist. With no ability to feel emotions of any kind, life would be reduced to a gray, mechanical ritual from cradle to grave. Be grateful that you can feel emotions!
But are there emotions you have experienced that you would rather not have felt? If you are like most people, your life has had its ups and downs. You have probably experienced moments of joy, as well as other times of grief, anger, frustration, and fear. You may have experienced moments of happiness, as well as depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, or any of a wide variety of emotions, both positive and negative.
What you may not realize is that some of the negative emotions you’ve experienced, even though you may have felt them long ago, may still be creating problems for you in subtle, yet very damaging ways. The Emotion Code is about finding those old emotions and releasing them forever.
Much of our suffering is due to negative emotional energies that have become ‘trapped’ within us. The Emotion Code is a simple and powerful method of finding and releasing these trapped energies.
Many people have found that when they free themselves of their trapped emotions they are able to live healthier and happier lives. A single trapped emotion can create both physical and emotional problems.
The following real-life examples illustrate how releasing trapped emotional energy using the Emotion Code can result in astonishing and sudden improvements in physical and emotional wellness:
Debbie thought she was having a heart attack. She had crushing chest pain and difficulty breathing; her left arm was completely numb, as was the left side of her face. She said it had been gradually getting worse for 24 hours. I immediately had her lie down while the staff called for medical assistance. After checking her vital signs and seeing that they were normal, I checked her heart for energetic imbalance. Her “heart circuit” was blown. Via muscle testing I asked her body if this imbalance was emotional. Her body answered yes. The emotion was “anguish”. I continue to test her, to see if we could determine when this emotion had become “trapped” in her body. We went back about three years and then could go no further. When I told her that the trapped emotion was anguish from three years ago, she started to cry and exclaimed, “I thought I’d dealt with all that! I can’t believe that is showing up now!” I asked if she would share with me what happened. She replied that three years before, her husband had had an affair. The news was devastating to her. All she could for months was weep, and she said that she felt like her heart was being torn out of her body. I released the trapped emotion from her body, and within seconds the feeling came back into her arm and into her face. Suddenly her difficulty breathing and the chest pain and heaviness were gone. We canceled the call for medical assistance, and she left the office a few minutes later, feeling completely fine.
In this story, a Canadian teacher shares how a difficult situation resulted in a trapped emotion that stayed with him, impacting his life in a negative way.
A number of years ago when I was teaching school, the principal and I just did not get along well at all. We fought almost from day one over one topic or another. She was extremely vicious, vindictive, and emasculating in every way, shape and form.
Finally, about January of the school year, I bailed out. I saw my doctor, and went on stress leave. He said, ‘Take some time off and regroup and recuperate.’ So I did that for about three months, and at the end of three months I went back to the school board with a clean bill of health, but with a proviso from the doctor that I was not to be put back into the same situation with this rather nasty principal.
Anyway, the feelings surrounding her and that whole situation would never leave. They would well up often, and I would ruminate on the situation, thinking about it, and I would feel my blood pressure rising, and I would feel the anger and resentment building up within me about the way I had been treated, and the fact that she never had any disciplinary measures even though she had a history of being rather sinister, if you will, to teachers who disagreed with her approach to principalship.
This went on for 2 years. I couldn’t sleep at night because I’d be so bent out of shape from all the negative feelings I was carrying. We were visiting Southern California and went and saw Dr. Brad Nelson and went to his clinic, and he rolled a magnet up and down my back, and released this feeling of resentment, and when he did so, I felt, I actually felt, something leave me. And from that point forward, even though I still don’t like the woman, I don’t have the negative feelings and the rising blood pressure, the anger, the resentment, which had possessed me for several years. So, that’s the story of an emotional blockage gone, with these principles and the Emotion Code that Dr. Brad teaches.

Susan had an earthquake phobia
Small earthquakes occur in California every day, and are large enough that they make the news several times a week. The smaller earthquakes, typically around to 2or 3 on the Richter scale, are not felt by the general population unless you are within probably a mile or two of the epicenter. Susan was different. She felt every earthquake, no matter how small. A feeling of panic and impending doom would come over her when she felt an earthquake, and she would feel an urge to hold onto the walls or something solid, even though she logically knew that the room wasn’t moving. I asked her body if there is any kind of trapped emotions might have anything to do with this phobia. Her body answered yes. On February 9, 1971, Susan’s home was mere yards from the epicenter of the deadly earthquake that occurred in California. The emotion that we uncovered through testing was ‘terror’. The emotion had become trapped in her body during the earthquake, and was never released. So we released the emotion, and Susan was delighted to find that her earthquake phobia was suddenly gone. She could no longer feel the small earthquakes, and, a few months later, when we had a fairly strong earthquake, she went through it with no feelings of panic or terror.
Jane had originally come to me for treatment of her migraine headaches. As we talked, however, she revealed to me that she suffered from night terrors. I was astonished to find out that two to three times a week Jane would wake-up screaming in the middle of the night, from a horrible, recurring nightmare. But this was not just any nightmare. She had broken multiple bones, and sustained a skull fracture from diving out off her bunk bed when she was younger. Now, as a married woman with children, she would still scream and thrash around several nights every week. After trying unsuccessfully for many years to overcome this problem, Jane had given up. In Jane’s case we found a number of trapped emotions that had become trapped when she was a young girl. By releasing these trapped emotions over the course of several weeks, we were able to put an end to her night terrors. I think her children were more grateful that she was!
Pinned to the Past
I was teaching a workshop once in Las Vegas when I had an interesting experience. I asked for a volunteer, and a young woman in her early twenties came up out of the audience. I asked her if she had any particular physical complaints, and she said no, that she was healthy, and had no problems.
I muscle tested her to see if she had a trapped emotion, and she did. The emotion was unsupported, which is a feeling similar to being all alone, and without help when you really need it.
Through muscle testing I asked her body when this emotion had become trapped. I asked, “Did this emotion become trapped within the last five years?” “No.” “Did this emotion become trapped between ages ten and twenty?” “No.” “Did this emotion become trapped between ages birth to ten?” “Yes.” “Did this emotion become trapped in the first five years of your life?” “Yes.” “Did this emotion become trapped in the first year of your life?” “Yes.” “Did this emotion occur after one year of age?” “No.” I asked her if she had any idea what this might be about, and she shook her head no.
It just so happened that this young woman had arrived at the workshop with her mother and they had been sitting together in the audience. At this point, I looked out at the audience and noticed that her mother looked very uncomfortable.
Her hand was covering her mouth and she looked either frightened or very embarrassed, I couldn’t tell which. I asked her if she knew what might have happened, since her daughter was too young to remember.
In a very pained and embarrassed voice she explained, “Well, when Jessica was a baby I used cloth diapers, which I would close with safety pins. There was one particular occasion where I’m ashamed to say that I accidently pinned her to her diaper. She cried and cried, but I didn’t realize that she was pinned to her diaper until I changed her again. I can’t believe this is showing up now and I felt so horrible about this and I still do.”
I turned to Jessica and asked, “Is that what this trapped emotion is about?” I pressed down on her arm and it was very strong, indicating that this was indeed the case. I released the trapped emotional energy by rolling three times down her back with the MagCreator, a magnetic tool made by Nikken, and she sat down again.
About two weeks later I received the following e-mail:
Hi Dr. Brad,
When you were in Las Vegas, you cleared a trapped emotion for my daughter, Jessica, stemming from infancy. Jessica has suffered from hip and knee pain since about the age of 12 years…it has gotten worse as she got older. Since you worked on clearing her trapped emotion of feeling unsupported (about 1 1/2 weeks ago), she has had no pain or constriction in her hips and knees. She has never gone more than a day or two without pain, and because it was worsening, it was beginning to affect her gait. She is ecstatic, and now is experiencing a “new” sense of inner joy. She sends her heartfelt thanks.
Jessica said feel free to share her story….she is certainly telling everyone in Las Vegas about it!
Thank you! – Maureen C.
Here is another example of a trapped emotion creating physical pain. The event that caused the trapped emotion happened when Jessica was a baby, and she had no conscious memory of it. Had we not released it, I believe that Jessica may have eventually become disabled, and the true cause of her disability – her trapped emotion – would have remained undiscovered.
“The Emotion Code” is a breakthrough new way to find these trapped emotions, and release these energies easily and quickly.
