A crash course in the Emotion Code
The modality of healing called the Emotion Code is based on the truth that sometimes the negative emotions we experience can become trapped. When that happens, these emotions can and do cause all manner of dis-ease, both physical and emotional. Releasing trapped emotions can relieve pain, correct imbalances, and greatly improve our quality of life. To the right are some basic explanations and definitions of the various conditions that are commonly found within the Emotion Code work.

My friend, The key to working the Emotion Code is intention, or more precisely, faith. It is a work that is spiritual. The truths that sometimes seem to be hidden mysteries are actually available to us all, because our bodies know what is amiss, what we need to be rid of, and even what will serve us best. It is crucial to remember that all healing has but one true source, and He is the Creator of our world. Thanks be to God for the incredible tender mercy of this knowledge. I am privileged to work in the Emotion Code with you. Thank you! Warmly, Janae Monson The Emotion Code Definitions of Emotions By Dr. Bradley Nelson
