from crying every time she hears a certain song, a song which meant nothing to her before her transplant. The heart has its own unique intelligence. It can think, feel and remember.

There is now considerable evidence that the heart contains memories and feelings. A large number of heart transplant recipients have reported new food and drink preferences and cravings, as well as handwriting changes, musical preferences, and memories that don’t seem to be their own.3

The Discovery of the Heart-Wall

Have you ever felt that you needed to “put up a wall”

to protect yourself in a negative situation? It appears that this common phrase has a basis in reality. We call this phenomenon the “Heart-Wall”, and here is how we were led to discover it.

In March of 1998, my wife Jean and I were in Portland, Oregon, attending a conference on magnetic healing where I was one of the guest speakers.

Early one morning, she woke me to say she’d had a powerful dream. She felt strongly that her dream had a deep meaning, and that it had something to do with her own health.

In her dream, Jean saw a stainless steel order wheel like those found in restaurants and diners. She explained that the wheel had three orders clipped to it. She understood intuitively that each order represented a different issue having to do with her health.

Her subconscious mind knew the meaning of this

dream, so I began muscle testing her, asking questions about the orders attached to the wheel. We quickly determined the meaning of the first two health issues. When I turned my attention to the third order on the wheel, something completely unexpected happened. Suddenly I had a waking vision.

I could see very clearly in my mind’s eye a beautiful, highly polished hardwood floor. Along with this vision 236

The Walls Around Our Hearts

came the understanding that Jean’s heart was under this floor!

This made no logical sense, but the image of this gleaming floor, and the perception that her heart was under it, were very persistent and clear. I determined to figure out what it all meant, if I could. I told Jean what I was seeing, and asked her if she had any insight into what this meant.

“Well, last night I wasn’t feeling all that well, and Lana told me that she sensed there was some kind of energy over my heart. I wonder if that is what she was picking up.” My sister-in-law Lana is a Reiki Master, and a very gifted and intuitive healer. “I really don’t know what it means.”

Fascinated, we began muscle testing to find out more about this hardwood flood.

“First, let’s find out how thick this floor is,” I said. “Is it one plank thick?”

Her arm was strong. The answer was “Yes.”

“Is it two planks thick?” “Yes.”

“It is three planks thick?” “Yes.”

Patiently, we went up by the numbers – five planks, ten planks, twenty, fifty, 100, 200 … Before long, I began asking about the thickness in feet.

“Is this floor 100 feet thick?” “Yes.”

“Is it 500 feet thick?” “Yes.”


The Emotion Code

And on it went – 1000 feet, 2000 feet, 3000 feet, 4000

… “Is it 5000 feet thick?” “Yes.”

“Is this floor a mile thick?” “Yes.”

“Is it two miles, three miles, four miles thick?” “Yes, yes, yes.”

“Is this floor five miles thick?” “Yes.”

“Is this floor six miles thick?” “No.”

This was quite strange, and we couldn’t imagine what it meant. I was certain that it had some significant meaning, so I continued testing. It quickly became apparent that the hardwood floor I could see so clearly in my mind was exactly five miles thick. I had never had a waking vision like this before, yet the answers we were getting were very clear.

Three things were certain. I could see the floor vividly in my mind. I knew that in some symbolic way my

wife’s heart was underneath this floor. The floor was very thick, five miles thick to be exact. What in the world could this possibly mean?

I asked, “Is there a wall around your heart?” “Yes.”

“Is this wall five miles thick?” “Yes.”

“Is it made of wood?” “Yes.”

What exactly was this that we were in the process of discovering? Was it something of consequence?


The Walls Around Our Hearts

Quieting my mind for a moment led me to ask another question. “Is this wall made up of trapped emotions?”

Her arm was strong. The answer was “Yes.”

Suddenly the symbolic meaning became clear to me. I knew how vulnerable the human heart is to being hurt. I also knew Jean’s past.

Jean had been a sensitive and shy little girl. She had grown up in an imperfect, dysfunctional household like many of us do. While she has some wonderful memories, and while she loved her parents and siblings and knew they loved her, she didn’t feel safe emotionally.

She could never predict what the emotional tone in her home might be from one moment to the next. Anger and harsh words frequently and suddenly erupted over things that should have been inconsequential. She and other family members would find themselves “walking on eggshells” at times like these. She never knew when she or someone else in the family might be lashed out at or blamed for something.

Protecting the Core of You

People deal with uncomfortable situations such as these in many ways. Some attack, some retreat, and some hide. But usually, we feel the need to defend and shield ourselves from being hurt.


The Emotion Code

Your heart is the core of your being. Your subconscious mind knows that it must protect your heart; it must protect your delicate core in any way it can.

Words like “heartache” and “heartbreak” are socalled because of the peculiar physical sensation that occurs in the heart under strong emotional strain. Nearly everyone has felt this sensation at one point or another.

Trapped emotions have substance. They consist of energy, just like everything else. When trapped emotions are created, they must reside somewhere in your body, and sometimes they will lodge in and around your heart.

Your subconscious mind – which knows no limitations – will sometimes use the energy of these trapped emotions to create a barrier or shield around your heart. Literally, it creates a wall of energy around your heart, to protect it.

At first, I puzzled over this process until I realized that the subconscious mind most likely follows certain rules. For example, it is not possible to create a wall out of nothing. In the world in which we live, all things around us are made of energy, and I believe the subconscious mind understands this concept implicitly. All walls that exist in the physical world around us, regardless of the chosen building material, are ultimately made of energy. The Heart-Wall, created by the subconscious mind, is also made of energy. It 240

The Walls Around Our Hearts

just happens to be made of a specific sort of energy, the energy of trapped emotions.

I believe that to the subconscious mind, the Heart-Wall is as real as the chair you are sitting in. The Heart-Wall exists, it’s just on a slightly different plane of reality than the world we can see with our physical eyes. Does that make the Heart-Wall any less real? I don’t think so. Remember that we cannot see ultraviolet light or indeed, the vast majority of the electromagnetic spectrum, yet no one disputes its reality.

When I asked Jean’s body if we could release the trapped emotions that were making up this wall around her heart, the answer was “Yes.”

Gradually, her body was willing to release these emotions. We found that the procedure for releasing emotions from the Heart-Wall was the same as for releasing any other trapped emotion. The only difference was that we had to ask specifically if we could release an emotion “from her Heart-Wall” in order to gain access to those emotions.

Each time we released a trapped emotion from Jean’s Heart-Wall, I would ask if we could release another emotion. Sometimes her body would allow us to clear more than one emotion in a single session, but often the answer was “No.”

It wasn’t surprising that her body needed a certain amount of time to process each of her emotions as they were released, so we patiently waited between 241

The Emotion Code

sessions. We found that we were able to release a different trapped emotion roughly every other day until they were all gone, and Jean no longer had a Heart-Wall.

The Creation of Her Heart-Wall

Jean had learned to protect her feelings from childhood. She retreated to safety inside of herself, shutting down her positive feelings, and avoiding connection with those that she felt vulnerable toward. When there were volatile episodes in her home, she chose to feel fear, resentment and other negative emotions, some of which she expressed, but many that she internalized. Some of these feelings were never fully processed, and they became trapped energies in her body.

While she was consciously doing her best to deal with life, at the same time her subconscious was building a wall, an ultimate protection against her heart being injured again.

Her subconscious mind chose an imaginary wooden

floor for her wall, specifically the hardwood that is walked upon. Do you see the symbolism there? The room she grew up in had a hardwood floor, as did much of her house back then, so it was a familiar sight. Her subconscious mind created her Heart-Wall at an early age, but it wasn’t completed for many years. 242

The Walls Around Our Hearts

Each new trapped emotion gave her wall additional thickness and strength, until it was many thousands of feet thick.

As we released the emotions from her Heart-Wall, we found that the thickness of the wall decreased. We could never predict how much of a decrease in thickness might result with the release of a trapped emotion. Some trapped emotions would result in a large decrease in thickness, some in a little.

When the last trapped emotion was released, something very interesting happened that helped Jean move beyond her past and the way that she perceived herself.

Getting Reconnected Again

While Jean’s Heart-Wall protected her heart from damage and hurt, this protection came at a cost. Having a Heart-Wall left her feeling numb and somewhat isolated. She felt disconnected from others. She wanted to have close friends, and she tried many times, but something was always in the way. She was well-liked, but she found it hard to be at ease with people. She had many associations, but few close friends. In social gatherings, even with people she had known for many years, she invariably felt that she was on the outside looking in, and she was never able to feel like she truly belonged.


The Emotion Code

When the last trapped emotion was finally released, and her Heart-Wall was gone, there was a profound shift.

“For the first time in my life, I’m not on the outside anymore,” she told me. “I’ve longed to feel this way my whole life. Now I know what it feels like to be part of a circle of friends, part of a group. It’s a very different feeling than I’ve ever had before, and it feels wonderful and right.”

Since that day, these feeling have stayed with her, and have helped her to grow in many ways. We’ve since discovered that releasing someone’s Heart- Wall is often followed by a profound experience of connection with other people.

Much of our personal and spiritual growth comes out of our love and interaction with others. The more open our hearts are, the stronger will be our connection to one another. The more connected we are, the more we can give and receive love, and the stronger and richer our lives will become.

I am so grateful for Jean and her dream that day. Without her, the Heart-Wall might still be completely unknown.

When we began to test other people for Heart-Walls, we found that they are a very common problem. Our experience is that eight out of ten people have one. Chances are, you do, too.


The Walls Around Our Hearts

Joanne’s Bad Marriage

One of the first people we tested for a Heart-Wall was a woman named Joanne. She had been married for

twenty-two years and had five children. Her husband was mentally and verbally abusive. He had created such a toxic experience in their home that the rest of the family wondered why she chose to stay in such a bad marriage year after year.

Like most women in her position, Joanne had endured the marriage by creating a Heart-Wall that helped insulate her tender heart from her husband’s abusive verbal and emotional assaults.

I suspected that Joanne had a Heart-Wall, and her body responded “Yes” when I asked if she did. Next I wondered what her Heart-Wall might be made of. Were all Heart-Walls made of wood? I didn’t know, but when I asked that question, her body said “No.”

Not wood. Well, how about some kind of metal? The answer was “Yes”, some kind of metal.

“Is the metal iron?” I asked, trying to narrow it down.


“Is it steel?” I asked. “No.”

I tried titanium, aluminum, copper and all the other kinds of metal I had ever heard of, but the answer was always “No.”

So I approached from a different angle. “Is this metal harder than iron?” “Yes.”


The Emotion Code

“Is this metal harder than steel?” Again, “Yes.”

As I continued this line of questioning, it gradually became apparent that the metal was harder than all the metals I could name. Feeling a bit exasperated, I asked, “Is your Heart-Wall made of metal that is harder than any metal that actually exists on earth?

”Her answer was definitive: “Yes.”

Wait a minute. What? How could her Heart-Wall be made of a metal that was harder than any metal that existed on earth?

Something Out of This World

I was so caught up in my concrete questions that I’d forgotten one very important fact.

The Heart-Wall is a creation of the subconscious mind – where literally anything is possible.

This wall is not physically made of any materials except the energy of a certain number of trapped emotions. It may not be “real” to us, but I believe that to the subconscious mind, although it is imaginary, it is also as real as anything else that exists in the world. Its reality in the body is a very powerful one. That reality affects the systems of the body, just as our thoughts do. It has a direct influence on our health. But remember, the Heart-Wall is an imaginary construct

– it can be made of literally anything at all.


The Walls Around Our Hearts

Two years after Joanne was married, the abuse began. Her highest value was to keep her marriage together, so she stayed put.

Joanne had grown up in an idyllic and serene home, where she was cherished. According to Joanne, she could not remember her parents ever fighting, and the number of times that angry words were spoken could be counted on the fingers of one hand.

As the abuse increased in her marriage, her subconscious mind searched desperately for protection. Trapped emotions were being formed, so the raw materials were there to build a wall, but what kind of material would her subconscious mind consider to be tough enough to protect her heart from Nick’s abuse?

It is said that the subconscious mind does not distinguish between what we perceive to be either

“reality” or “non-reality.” For example, if you see a movie that is very frightening, your subconscious mind doesn’t “know” that you are not actually experiencing the celluloid-reality of the movie. Sure enough, your heart will pound, your palms will sweat, and your biochemical reactions will be just the same. Adrenalin will course through your veins, and all the reactions that occur in a fight or flight situation will be the same as if your viewed reality is, indeed, reality itself. Essentially, the subconscious mind treats everything that comes into it from your conscious mind as reality, whether it is or not. Which brings us back to Joanne, 247

The Emotion Code

who has a Heart-Wall made of metal, but a certain kind of metal, stronger than any metal that exists on earth.

At some point, long ago, Joanne had seen an alien spaceship on a science fiction show. The Army fired missiles at it. When the smoke cleared, it was still there. They shot cannons at it – to no effect. They even launched a nuclear warhead at this alien spacecraft, but when the smoke cleared, it was still there. The scientists were stunned; the spacecraft was made of an entirely unknown substance, a metal that did not exist on earth, one that was apparently indestructible.

“Yes!” Her subconscious mind said, “That’s exactly what I need!” And this alien, make believe metal from an old sci-fi movie became her Heart-Wall construction material.

So Joanne had a Heart-Wall made of indestructible metal from an alien spacecraft. What better way to protect her heart? Remember, the Heart-Wall is from the deep imagination, from the subconscious mind of the person who unconsciously creates it.

Once we’d found out what it was made of at the metaphorical level, we began to release the trapped emotions that had been organized into this wall around Joanne’s heart.

Because she was still in this marriage with her abusive husband, we realized that her Heart-Wall had probably 248

The Walls Around Our Hearts

been a very important factor in her remaining married to Nick.

It had protected her heart all these years. Was removing the Heart-Wall the right thing to do? Was it the right thing for Joanne, at this point in her life? Her body had created the Heart-Wall for a reason, but there is always a price that you pay when you have a Heart-Wall, that price mainly being a diminished ability to feel. We decided that the only safe route would be to ask her subconscious mind if it was okay to begin releasing these trapped emotions that were making up her Heart-Wall.

“Can we release a trapped emotion from your HeartWall now?” I asked. Her body said “Yes.” It was okay to begin getting rid of these trapped emotions that were making up her Heart-Wall. In fact, Joanne’s body wanted them gone!

So we began to clear them out, finding them one at a time through muscle testing.

Each time we would release a trapped emotion, we would re-check the thickness of the Heart-Wall, which we had initially found to be seven feet thick.

“Is the Heart-Wall still seven feet thick?” “No,” her body responded.

“Is it six feet thick?” “Yes.”

Again, with every trapped emotion we released, her Heart-Wall became thinner. The distance by which the 249

The Emotion Code

Heart-Wall thickness diminished varied, depending on the emotion. Sometimes one released emotion

would reduce the Heart-Wall by an entire foot. Other times, a released emotion would make less difference, resulting in a six-inch change or less. In Joanne’s case, there was no waiting period between releasing one emotion and the next; her subconscious mind was

ready to release them all in a row, just as fast as we could find them and let them go.

Connecting the Dots

As we identified each trapped emotion, I also asked when that specific trapped emotion had become trapped. Asking that question helped Joanne connect the trapped emotions to specific events in her life that had caused her so much pain. We found that

she did not have a Heart-Wall until the second year of her marriage, when things really started to become difficult.

As we traced back the origins of the individual trapped emotions, it was easy to see why Joanne had needed a Heart-Wall that was indestructible. One of her trapped emotions was from the time her husband had held a gun to his head and threatened to kill himself in front of her. Another trapped emotion was from the time that he fell into a fit of rage over her religious practices and literally burned her Bible in front of her. There were nine different emotions that had become 250

The Walls Around Our Hearts

trapped in her body, each of them having to do with some extreme experience with her husband, Nick.

Feeling Again With Her Heart

It took about thirty minutes to release all nine of these emotions and completely clear Joanne’s Heart-Wall. When her body indicated that the Heart-Wall was

gone, Joanne smiled quietly.

“How are you feeling?” I asked her.

“A little dazed,” she said. “But good...” Then she went back home to Nick.

For twenty-two years, Joanne had an impenetrable wall around her heart. Now that the wall was gone, suddenly, she was able to feel in her heart all the barbs, all the meanness and all the venom that Nick heaped on her, from the moment she walked in

the door.

For the first time in many years, she was really feeling what was going on in her relationship with Nick. Her Heart-Wall had been shielding her from the full force of his cruelty. Now that she could experience it for what it really was, without the protective wall, she couldn’t believe she’d stayed with him for so long. Who could tolerate this kind of abuse? And why should she put up with it anymore? Within two weeks she had left Nick for good, and filed for divorce.


The Emotion Code

Like so many of our body’s defenses, a Heart-Wall can be an invaluable safety measure in the short-term. When something overwhelming happens, an

emergency action can save your life.

If you’re being bombed, it’s a good idea to hide in a bunker. But you wouldn’t want to live there. If you did, you’d miss out on the joys and wonders of life.

The same is true with a Heart-Wall. No matter how important it was to your life at the time it was created, you will be able to live a happier, more connected life as soon as you can tear it down. Sometimes, it can make the difference between living a life of disappointment and living happily ever after.

Miranda and the Old Boy friend

Miranda is a perfect example of how a Heart-Wall can interfere with your love life. She was an attractive 38-year-old nurse who came to me suffering from

neck pain. During the course of the examination, she mentioned that she had not dated anyone in years and had no interest in having any kind of a relationship with men anymore. When I tested her, I was not surprised to find that she had a Heart-Wall.

Eight years before, Miranda’s heart had been broken in a relationship with a man she had deeply loved. In an effort to protect her heart from experiencing that 252

The Walls Around Our Hearts

kind of pain and injury again, her subconscious mind had created a Heart-Wall.

In Miranda’s case, three lingering emotions had been trapped in her body for all those years, blocking her from experiencing a loving relationship. She had no idea that these trapped emotions were the major underlying cause of the pain she was experiencing in her neck as well. Her neck pain had been going on for some time, and was considered chronic and even a bit mysterious by the other doctors she had consulted, as nothing seemed to relieve it.

One by one, we cleared each of these emotions. At the end, I asked her body if the Heart-Wall had finally been released. Her body said that it was completely gone.

I didn’t see Miranda again for about three months. When I did, she looked incredibly happy. I asked her what had changed and she excitedly said, “Everything!”

She reported that her neck pain was long gone. But there was even better news than that.

“Right after I saw you last,” she said, “I ran into my childhood sweetheart. I hadn’t seen him since elementary school. But it turned out, he’d been living right around the corner from me – less than a block away – for almost eight years. We started dating and something really sparked between us. We’re in love! I think he’s going to ask me to marry him.”


The Emotion Code

The woman who had come into my office complaining of neck pain and swearing off men was gone for good. She was like a completely new person.

“Thank you so much for helping me,” Miranda said. “If you hadn’t released my Heart-Wall, I honestly don’t think this would have happened. I was too closed-off before.”

When trapped emotions and Heart-Walls are released, people sometimes say it’s like they can finally feel again. They can give and receive love freely for the first time in a long time. In that state, very interesting and wonderful things can happen.

How We Are Meant to Live

This is how we’re meant to live. We’re meant to live vibrant, healthy lives, filled with love and joy. Of all the emotions, love is the most pure and has the highest vibration. Love, that most powerful and most popular of all the emotions, is both generated by the heart and received by the heart.

When you have a Heart-Wall, you are not able to give love as well as you might, because that love energy that is in your heart cannot get out as well. At the same time, love that is being radiated toward you by other people is blocked to some degree.

As a result, you can go through your life somewhat insulated from others, because of the emotional 254

The Walls Around Our Hearts

traumas you’ve been through and the subconscious wall that literally exists around your heart. The traumas were genuine enough and there is no doubt that they caused more pain than your body thought it could stand to feel again – that’s why the Heart-Wall made perfect sense at the time. But until you take it down, you’ll be trapped behind it to some degree, less able to reach out and connect with people, even the people you love most.

People’s lives and the lives of their children and their families have been completely transformed when their Heart-Walls have been removed.

About thirty percent of the time, the effects of releasing a Heart-Wall are very apparent and immediately noticeable, but most of the time the results are subtle, and the changes in a person’s life appear gradually, in ways that they themselves might not immediately recognize.

Paula and Her Angr y Son

One day a woman named Paula came to my office with her son, Rick, who was 17 at the time. She told me that Rick was having problems with anger. He was hanging around with the wrong crowd and his grades were

abysmal. She was afraid the next step might be drug use, and was looking to me for help. She had heard of our work with trapped emotions and was wondering if some of her son’s anger might be due to them. 255

The Emotion Code

I tested this very silent and angry young man and found that he had a Heart-Wall. When I tested his mother, I wasn’t too surprised to find that she had a Heart-Wall as well.

It quickly became apparent that Rick wasn’t the only one suffering from anger. His mother was also filled with anger and resentment toward her ex-husband, Rick’s father. She had a rather grim expression, and her jaw seemed to be set in a determined, angry clench. It took 5 different sessions to clear Rick’s Heart-Wall, each session taking no more than 10 minutes or so. Sometimes we would release two emotions during

a session, but most of the time, just one. His HeartWall trapped emotions all revolved around his birth father and how he had felt abandoned by him over the last few years. His parent’s divorce had been terribly difficult for him. He had trapped emotions of anger, frustration, resentment and feelings of inferiority, among other negative emotions.

As soon as we’d completed the process, Rick started to change. It was amusing to see that even his hairstyle changed. When I first met him, Rick had an orange Mohawk; in his case, an expression of his defiance. Without the need to express anger and resentment anymore, he went back to more ordinary hair. Not only that, but his grades improved by several levels. He had always been a smart boy, but he was blocking his emotions behind a Heart-Wall and the pressure had been building up for a long time.


The Walls Around Our Hearts

Before we released his Heart-Wall, feelings of rage would well up inside of Rick when he thought of his father. After we cleared the Heart-Wall, Rick could think about his father – even spend time with him

– and be completely okay. Now that his simmering anger was a thing of the past, Rick felt happier and more motivated. When he let go of the Heart-Wall, he got his life back.

I will never forget the last time I saw Rick, and how dramatically transformed he was. I remember him not being able to wipe the smile off his face as he told me about a recent fishing trip with his birth-father, and how much his relationship with him had changed.

Curiously enough, when we cleared his mother’s Heart-Wall, she didn’t seem to notice any change. About two months after we cleared her Heart-Wall, Paula came back to the office and complained to me, saying “What’s going on? Rick is like a completely new person. I hardly recognize him. But I don’t feel any different than I felt before!”

I explained that, when a Heart-Wall is removed, it often takes time for changes to be felt and for things to realign in your life.

The body has to go through a healing process once a Heart-Wall is removed, and that can take some time.

It was hard to tell whether she accepted that explanation or not. I think she was disappointed that her own life 257

The Emotion Code

hadn’t changed as dramatically as Rick’s. I didn’t see either of them for a while and wondered on occasion how they were doing.

Then about a year later, I ran into Paula in a very upscale department store in Orange County. She recognized me and waited to see if I would recognize her. She looked familiar, but I had no idea who she was. As we talked, it dawned on me who she was,

but she looked so completely different that I scarcely recognized her. Her face radiated happiness. Her whole demeanor had changed. Since we had last seen each other, she had not only gotten a wonderful job at this store, but had also found a wonderful man, and they were happily married.

As we talked, I found that Rick was continuing to do very well both in school and in life. I reminded her about her Heart-Wall and our conversation of a year before.

“I don’t know if having my Heart-Wall cleared had something to do with this or not,” she grinned, “but my life is so much better now than it was a year ago I can hardly believe it!”

As I walked away from that encounter, I remembered how deeply angry and unhappy she had been only a year before and I couldn’t help but wonder where she would be if we had not cleared her Heart-Wall.

Children and Heart-Walls

It’s a sad fact of life on this planet, that children often have Heart-Walls, too.

Think how tender and open a child’s heart is when they are little. They are helpless and trusting, and far too often, they are the victims of predatory or abusive adults and sometimes even cruel children. In these cases, Heart-Walls are always found. Sometimes life is challenging even in wonderful homes and under the best of circumstances. The following letter is from a delightful woman whose son was diagnosed as being clinically depressed. After developing a trapped emotion while witnessing the death of a close friend, a Heart-Wall was formed to keep his poor little heart from entirely breaking. Nine Years Old, and Depressed

Dear Doctor Nelson,

Several weeks ago I brought my nine-year-old son to see you. He had been exhibiting unusual

behavior. He was having difficulty eating, sleeping, and concentrating. He had become angry, negative and pessimistic. School was a nightmare! We tried urging, punishing, rewarding and bribing him to

complete his school assignments. When they were

finally completed he would not turn them into the teacher. He is a very intelligent boy yet his grades 259

The Emotion Code

suffered because his assignments were not turned in.

I set up an appointment with his pediatrician to be evaluated. We were then referred to a pediatric neurologist, and then to a psychologist for further review – they concluded that my son was depressed. (Two years ago my son witnessed the drowning of a very close friend and ten months later was whisked away to the funeral of his cousin. Four other relatives were buried within the next six months and I believe these events had a distressing effect on my son. I tried to help him cope with these events, but apparently they were still affecting him.)

When I brought him to see you, he was tested

and you determined that he had a “Heart-Wall”

causing an emotional imbalance in his body. The MagCreator was used to roll-out each of the

negative emotions associated with the Heart-Wall. I do not understand all the scientific aspects of this type of treatment yet I believed I had finally found the answer to the growing problems with my son.

After you worked on him he was a little lethargic for a couple of days, but the changes I noticed in his behavior in the weeks that followed were absolutely incredible!

By the end of the first week he was sleeping and eating normally, and was once again happy and

enthusiastic. He now completes every homework

assignment without any nudging on my part. 260

The Walls Around Our Hearts

Our home is much more pleasant – he is helpful,

kind and patient. I feel like my sweet little boy has returned!

If skepticism had kept me away from this type of treatment, I would still be parenting a very sad and frustrated little boy with no solution in sight. Instead, I have found a treatment that has literally saved him. Thank you Dr. Nelson for all your help. Your knowledge and expertise in this field and

your patience and concern have had a tremendous

impact… My heartfelt gratitude to you for all that you have done to heal my son.

Thank you!! - (Name Withheld)

Little Jacob’s Heart-Wall

One of the most touching experiences I had with

children is told by a young mother named Meisha. Her three year old son, Jacob had developed a HeartWall shortly after his birth and the death of his twin brother. I treated him and released his Heart-Wall in one visit, and later she wrote this testimonial for you to read.

Three and a half years ago I gave birth to twin

sons. Nine days following birth they contracted

a virus, which ultimately attacked their hearts, leaving them in critical condition for two months. Jordan, the eldest twin, passed away due to multiple complications leaving Jacob, who then quickly 261

The Emotion Code

recovered enough to come home but with continual problems with his heart.

Not only was Jacob left with heart failure, but with a Heart-Wall made from deep, lasting emotions that were manifested in excessive anger, destructiveness, unhappiness, insecurity and aggression. A day or two following treatment my tender hearted son was back. Friends would comment on how happy he

appeared. He was helpful and kind, patient and

pleasant. His behavior was polar opposite from

when his heavy emotions were weighing him down.

I know through continued treatments my dear son

will be emotionally healed and allowed to live the happy life that he is entitled to.

As news of our discovery of the Heart-Wall spread, other practitioners began to come to us for training, although the majority of attendees continued to be laypeople. The following Heart-Wall story was submitted by Gwen Legler, a counselor in Washington State. The Hated Heart-Wall

I have found that people usually choose a HeartWall substance that has a positive memory or image for them. That is why I was so surprised with Pearl’s negative reaction to her Heart-Wall made of Rhododendron bushes. She hated rhododendrons

and couldn’t believe her subconscious chose them. I double-checked, and it was correct. I found it 262

The Walls Around Our Hearts

interesting that her body would not let me identify her Heart-Wall until the third visit, and then it would only let me remove a few emotions. It was

definitely protecting her from something. I suggested we continue and maybe we would understand


By the fifth visit we began to remove more emotions

– guilt, heartache, hatred, betrayal, grief, and so on. It soon became apparent that her Heart-Wall was

like a storage unit for one particular incident in her life. About 16 years ago she had an extramarital affair for which she felt extreme guilt and selfloathing. Although she stopped and never had another affair and was forgiven by her husband, she couldn’t seem to forgive herself and put it behind her. Now we realized her Heart-Wall was a bush

she hated because it contained an experience she hated. We cleared the Heart-Wall and she found

peace and was able to forgive herself.

The Ring Dream

Pat and her husband Jim attended the first seminar that I taught, which was held in San Diego in 1996. I received this letter from them about their experience with a recurring nightmare that was being caused by a Heart-Wall.

I wanted to share my experiences with Heart-Walls with you. Jimmy and I attended a seminar in San


The Emotion Code

Diego with you, where you explained Heart-Walls, how to find them, and break through them.

My daughter died in 1987, and after a while I

began having a recurring nightmare that we called

“The Ring Dream.” Nancy had loved rings, so I

always connected the dream with her. I would wake up hysterical and screaming, clutching my hands

looking for my rings. I could never remember what caused the panic, or why it was so important to

find my rings.

After we attended your seminar, we decided to

check me for a Heart-Wall. Needless to say, we

found one! We worked back through the years,

clearing the layers of trapped emotions as we went. At two years of age, I had a trapped emotion of

abandonment. As I had always been with my family, I did not quite believe what the testing was showing. I told my mother about the HeartWall, and the abandonment emotion. She told me that when I was two, she had left me with my

grandmother and had gone to stay with my father

at an Army camp. My grandmother had said for

her to go, that she would take care of me, that I was just a baby and wouldn’t miss my mother. It was a story that I had never heard before, but it had left its impression on me when I was 2 years old.

Jimmy and I worked together and cleared all the

trapped emotions that were making up my HeartWall. What a relief it was to us to discover that 264

The Walls Around Our Hearts

the dream stopped, and did not return. While we

both felt we learned a lot at your seminar, nothing compared to the joy we felt we received when that horrible dream stopped.

I appreciate the opportunity to share this with you. We have shared this story with other people we

have met, but I’m glad to finally be able to tell you about it. Thank you so much for this wonderful

Finding and Releasing the Heart-Wall

Now let’s talk about how you can actually determine if a person has a Heart-Wall, and how you can release it.

To find a Heart-Wall, you simply ask. Unless you actually ask the person’s subconscious mind if they have a Heart-Wall, it will not be revealed.

The Heart-Wall is made of trapped emotions, but

the subconscious mind no longer categorizes them as such. These emotions are now part of a wall and are inaccessible until you ask if there is a Heart-Wall. You have to get the mindbody to admit that there is a wall, before you can get to the trapped emotions that are creating it. Once you do that, the trapped emotions once again become recognizable to the subconscious mind as trapped emotions, and therefore, are vulnerable 265

The Emotion Code

to being released. As you release them, one by one, the wall will come down.

It’s really simple. Ask, “Do you have a Heart-Wall?”

Then use the muscle test of your choice to get the body’s response.

My experience is that about 80% of the general public will test positive for a Heart-Wall.

Use of the Word “Hidden”

When you ask, “Do you have a Heart-Wall?” and the answer is no, there might be another phenomenon

at work. Quite often, the Heart-Wall will actually be hidden and will not show up unless you actually use the word “hidden” in your question or statement. The whole purpose of the Heart-Wall is to protect one’s heart, or in other words, to hide the heart from those who might do it emotional harm. It seems that sometimes the Heart-Wall gets a bit too hidden to readily detect, but if you expressly use the word

“hidden” when you ask, it will show up.

To check for this possibility, simply add the word

“hidden” to your question or statement. For example, you could ask, “Do you have a Hidden Heart-Wall?” If they have one, and it’s hidden, it will be revealed. It’s important to remember this tip. I can’t tell you how often I’ve had to use the word “hidden” to find 266

The Walls Around Our Hearts

Heart-Walls that would otherwise not have been detectable.

A hidden Heart-Wall is not a different kind of Heart- Wall. It’s simply a Heart-Wall that is a bit more difficult to find.

Once the body has opened up to you, to let you know that a hidden Heart-Wall is there, you can proceed without having to use the word hidden anymore, because it’s no longer hidden.

Is it Ready to Be Released?

Once you have determined that a Heart-Wall is present, ask “Can we release an emotion from the Heart-Wall now?” The Heart-Wall is there for a reason, and while ultimately the effects of having a Heart-Wall are negative to the health and well-being of the individual, some people are in situations where they simply are not ready or willing to give up the protection of the Heart-Wall for now, and you need to respect that.

If a Heart-Wall is present, but you get a negative response about removing it, your subject may want to meditate on why the subconscious mind is giving that answer. Is it unsafe, or are they already processing some other things that are taxing the mindbody? At any rate, it is important to listen to their subconscious. It knows what is best for them.


The Emotion Code

If you get a yes answer to your question, you then simply follow the same process outlined in chapter six and follow it. For your convenience, there is a flowchart on page 282 that is specifically for releasing HeartWalls. The Emotion Code works the same way to release

trapped emotions whether they are part of a HeartWall or not. When you ask, “Can we release an emotion from the Heart-Wall now?” and you get a positive answer, the mindbody has a particular emotion in mind that it is willing to release.

You don’t get to choose which emotion will be released first; the subconscious mind of the subject will do that.

As soon as you receive a yes answer to this question, the trapped emotion has already been chosen. All you need to do now is determine which emotion it is on the chart, in order to bring it to conscious awareness. Identify it, determine any other information that the subconscious wants the conscious mind to know about it, and then release it.

Time to Process May be Needed

As I’ve explained previously, sometimes you will be able to release all the trapped emotions that are making up a Heart-Wall one after another, in one concentrated 268

The Walls Around Our Hearts

effort. At other times, the body will allow you to release a limited number of trapped emotions before needing to take time out to process what has been released, requiring from a few hours to a day or more before you can release another one.

After verifying the release of a trapped emotion from the Heart-Wall, you simply return to your original question and ask, “Can we release an emotion from the Heart-Wall now?” If the answer is yes, and if you have the time, keep going.

If the answer is no, you may want to check to see if perhaps the Heart-Wall is gone, by asking again, if they have a Heart-Wall. If they still have one, ask when you can release the next emotion – later today, in an hour, tomorrow, etc.

Determining the Heart-Wall Material

Remember that the subconscious mind is very logical. Since it is patently illogical to have a “wall” made of nothing, the subconscious mind will always choose a material for the Heart-Wall to be made of.

You don’t really need to know what substance the subconscious mind chose to build the Heart-Wall out of in order to release it. Ultimately, all Heart-Walls are made of the energy of trapped emotions, and releasing these trapped emotions is what really matters.

On the other hand, determining the material that has been chosen is interesting because of the symbolism 269

The Emotion Code

that is often revealed. There is no right or wrong way to ask what material has been used, but I usually start by asking if the material is wood. If it isn’t wood, I ask if it is a material harder or softer than wood. If it is harder than wood, I may ask if it is made from metal, etc. You can narrow it down pretty quickly using the process of deduction, and you’ll get some great practice using muscle testing.

If you have determined what material the Heart-Wall is made of, you might then want to ask how thick the Heart-Wall is. They can range in thickness from paper-thin to many miles! All I can tell you is that this is what we have found in testing. Our subconscious minds are not limited like our conscious minds are, and can have quite an imagination! Yet I believe that the subconscious mind takes it all quite seriously, and really does believe that there is a wall there, made of whatever material has been chosen.

Heart-Wall Metaphors

An older couple came to see me. The husband was

very grouchy, and was dismissive and gruff with his wife. She seemed to be a very gentle soul. They both had Heart-Walls. His was made of solid steel, cold and hard, miles thick. Hers was many thousands of layers of curtain material, providing a nice cushion against his toxic personality.

A gay man had a Heart-Wall made of solid diamond, which is the hardest known naturally occurring 270

The Walls Around Our Hearts

material. Incidentally, his subconscious would not allow me to release this wall.

I’ve seen Heart-Walls made of flowers, quilts, blankets, earth, stones, vegetation, leather, glass, all kinds of metals such as steel, titanium, and iron, as well as various construction materials such as logs, concrete blocks, bricks, and so on.

Quite often there will be a noticeable relevance between the personality of an individual and their Heart-Wall material. I treated a young child once who had a HeartWall made of yellow plastic, just like her little yellow plastic toys.

Sometimes Heart-Walls will have a door or a window. Often the door will be locked, and nobody has the key but the owner.

While often a Heart-Wall is spherical, they can be box shaped, or any other shape you can imagine. Sometimes they have sharp edges or projections on their surface to keep people out.

One young man couldn’t seem to form close attachments with women, although he was very handsome, had everything else going for him, and had many opportunities.

I found that his Heart-Wall was made of a one-way mirror, which allowed him to see out, but no one else to see in.


The Emotion Code

I once treated a child whose most common expression was “I can’t!” I found and released his Heart-Wall. It was made from a single piece of paper. On it were the words, “I can’t!” His parents commented that after his Heart-Wall was released, he no longer felt that he couldn’t do things, and was happier and more positive. He also stopped whining and saying “I can’t!”

Anne Horne’s Story

A woman named Anne Horne wrote from Seattle to

tell me of a remarkable near-death experience she had, in which she saw people in the future, helping others remove their Heart-Walls. Here, in her own words, is her story, or see the video:

Dear Dr. NelsonI originally came into contact with your work when a practitioner here in Seattle named Marguerite

used your techniques to balance my body. At the

end of the session, Marguerite turned around and just as an afterthought said, “Oh, let’s see if you have a Heart-Wall...”

“What is a Heart-Wall?” I said. “I don’t


And she said, “That’s okay. You don’t have to know what it is. I’ll just test you for it.”

So she did, and I didn’t have one.


The Walls Around Our Hearts

Then she said, “Let’s test you for a hidden HeartWall.”

“All right,” I said. “But what is it?”

“That’s okay,” she said, smiling. “You don’t have to understand.”

She checked me for a hidden Heart-Wall, but I

didn’t have one of those either. Then she explained how emotions can put up a wall between yourself

and others around your heart. When she found

a Heart-Wall, she would run a magnet down a

person’s back to release those emotions and open their hearts.

I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. It was like an electric bolt went through me. Suddenly, an

event that had happened to me twenty-five years

ago made sense. It was the realization of a very significant event that I’d experienced when I was 23 years old.

When I was 23, I died. It was a violent death. I had one of those near-death experiences that 10

million other people have also experienced. But

when I was 23, nobody talked about this stuff. I’d never heard of seeing a tunnel or white light or anything like that.

It was a very important experience for me. I left my body and had a life review. I was a young thing and hadn’t done anything particularly exciting

or big. But I was going back, home, and on my


The Emotion Code

way, there was a light, a tunnel. I felt like I was being pulled by my heart toward a wonderful place. In that moment, I was encompassed by all this

innate intelligence and tremendous love. And I

just wanted to go home. It was fantastic.

I found myself facing this man who was standing in front of me – we were not on the ground, we were just floating – and he said, “It’s not your time.”

I said, “But I want to go home.”

He turned away from me and I could see him

conferring with someone else, but I didn’t know

what they were saying. Then he turned around and said, “I’m sorry. It’s not your time.” But apparently, he did get permission to show me something about my life.

And suddenly, I realized where we were, because

we looked down, and there was the earth. We were way out somewhere in space. And I could see the

earth below us. We were looking at the Americas, specifically the West Coast of North America. We were looking at the Northwest area, Colorado,

Texas, and down through California.

Now, I’m from Virginia and I died in North Carolina. At 23 years old, I had never even left the state. I was very young.

I could see many people in groups, sometimes large groups of 20 or 30, and sometimes just a

few people together. They were in groups doing


The Walls Around Our Hearts

a specific training that was very unusual. There would be two or three people together, with one

person lying on a table, or standing up, and another person who was rolling something down the other

person’s back.

I knew this was in my future, that I was one of

these people. I could feel the sense of urgency that they were feeling. It was like a numbers game; we had to treat as many people as possible. We were really in a rush, really hurrying. It was very, very, very vital. I couldn’t quite understand what was going on, but I noticed we were dressed in white.

“Are we nurses?” I asked him.

And he said “No, you’re not nurses.”

I said, “Well, what are we doing?”

“You’re opening people’s hearts,” he said. “Not in a physical way. You’re removing all blocks from

their hearts so that they can give love and receive love from here.”

At that moment, the people doing this work became consciously aware of each another. It wasn’t something planned, it wasn’t some kind

of harmonic convergence, or anything else. It just happened. We became conscious of each other. And at that moment, the meaning of this work became

clear to me.


The Emotion Code

Suddenly a flood of energy was sent to the earth from where I was, above the earth. It looked like a white bolt of energy that came in through our open hearts in the back and went out through the front of our hearts into the world. We were there opening people’s hearts so that they could be anchors for this divine energy to come into this world.

Within three seconds, the world was completely

transformed by this energy. This light went into every crack and crevice, everywhere, and there was no darkness in this world, ever again.

The next thing that happened was, the doctors

resuscitated me and I was brought back to life. But it was OK because, once I got back, I pretty much thought that I had a mission from God. And I

thought “Oh, my life is going to be so great!”

Well, my life has been a living hell! I have tried to have all kinds of trainings, looking for something that matched my experience on the other side,

thinking, “Well, where is it? If this is my mission, when am I going to find out how to get started?”

I worked for the Edgar Cayce Foundation for Research and Enlightenment. I studied Quantum

Physics for 25 years. I took courses in Physics of the Mind. I became certified as a Neurolinguistic Programming trainer and in hypnosis. I’m a graduate of the HeartMath Institute. I’m a trained counselor in chemical dependency, timeline therapy, 276

The Walls Around Our Hearts

and core transformation therapy. All the while, I’ve been doing my best to help improve people’s lives, but searching for the connection between the work I was doing and what I’d seen.

I hurt my back at work, which made me open

to trying the Nikken magnetic products, and the

magneticI went to Anaheim to a Nikken event.


And then I met Marguerite.

I don’t know if you’ve heard of the theory of the 100 monkeys. It’s about reaching critical mass.

There was an island of monkeys. Scientists came in and taught one monkey to wash his sweet potatoes. After 100 of them learned how to do it, all the

monkeys on the island knew how to do it. Scientists thought that was pretty amazing. But that was only part of it. They soon realized that as soon as these 100 monkeys knew how to do it, the other monkeys automatically knew how to do it too. But not just the monkeys on that island. The monkeys on the

islands all around that island began to wash their sweet potatoes, too!

It is like Dr. Nelson says, quantum physics has

shown us that information travels instantly. If

people’s hearts are opened, we can reach critical mass.


The Emotion Code

During my near-death experience, I said to the

man who met me, “But there are only thousands

of us.”

And he replied, “Millions will hear, but only thousands will remember.”

And we only need thousands. Thank you for giving me a way to fulfill my mission.

- Anne Horne, Washington

Counting the Cost

The price we pay for having Heart-Walls is incalculable. How many people have led disconnected and lonely lives due to the walls around their hearts? How many people have not experienced the joy of finding love in their lives? How many wives and children have been abused?

Heart-Walls can lead to depression, divorce, and abuse. The patterns of abuse that are created can pass from generation to generation, causing all manner of pain and destructive behavior.

The result of Heart-Walls on a larger scale leads to misunderstanding, prejudice, hatred and brutality. On a global scale, Heart-Walls lead to ethnic cleansing, nation against nation, terrorism, and war.


The Walls Around Our Hearts

There is altogether too much of isolation and violence, too much of sorrow and pain in this world. When

I walk down the street, I see so many people with tight, clenched jaws like Paula had or boys with angry, resentful expressions, acting out their pain and frustration any way they can. The news is filled every night with one story after another about people whose hearts must be barricaded behind strong walls for them to do the things they do.

Widespread depression is another common side effect of Heart-Walls and trapped emotions. In the United States alone, it is estimated that between 13

and 14 million people suffer from depression. It is the leading cause of disability in American women. Nearly 15 percent of those women will ultimately commit suicide. Among children and young adults – between 10 and 24 years old – suicide is the third leading cause of death. By releasing trapped emotions and removing Heart-Walls, we have seen cases of severe depression eliminated once and for all. We have seen marriages saved, abuse stopped, and lives turned around. We’ve seen beautiful, loving relationships begin. We’ve seen kids make better choices. We’ve seen peace restored. I am so grateful to be able to share what I have learned about trapped emotions and Heart-Walls, and to be able to bring this information to light. There is no doubt in my mind that it comes from above, and is meant to bless many lives in these times that are so trying in so many ways. I feel so blessed to have been 279

The Emotion Code

led to discover a method that has such a powerfully transformative effect on people’s lives. It’s an exciting thing to be a part of.

If you have a Heart-Wall, can you see how important it is for you to clear that wall away? Can you see the importance of helping your own children and your own family? Can you see how transformational it

would be if we could do the same thing for the whole world? Imagine how this world will change when we can open enough people’s hearts to create a critical mass. As in Anne’s near-death experience, that critical mass, perhaps only thousands of us, will be enough to help transform this planet forever. Those whose hearts are open will be the anchors for that divine energy that will transform and heal the world.

The Walls Around Our Hearts


Often the hands will solve a mystery

that the intellect has struggled with in vain.

- Carl Jung


Surrogates, Proxies and

Distance Healing

Imagine being able to release trapped emotions on a loved one who is thousands of miles away.

Imagine being able to tap into the subconscious mind of someone who is in a coma or unconscious and

needs your help. Imagine being able to test your pet for trapped emotions and improve his behavior. All this and more is possible through two expanded forms of muscle testing that I refer to as surrogate and proxy testing.

Surrogate and proxy testing are probably the most useful adjuncts to muscle testing that have ever been discovered. I have taught many people to use these methods, and they have been able to use the Emotion 287

The Emotion Code

Code in what would otherwise have been impossible circumstances.

Although I have used surrogate and proxy testing for many years, I am continually impressed by how well they work. These forms of testing give you the ability to test otherwise untestable people, as well as to perform true distance healing.

I believe that we are living in an era when all the knowledge of past ages is coming back to the earth, and that the Emotion Code may once have formed part of that body of knowledge.

As we continue to refine our understanding of how the world works, we have made incredible advances in many areas. Things that would have been inconceivable in the past are commonplace to us today.

Just over a century ago, if you wanted to capture a likeness of someone, you had to draw or paint it. To create a full-color rendering usually took lots of paint supplies and many hours of effort. Now all you need is a tiny digital camera and a split second to press the shutter. Going to visit a relative 100 miles away used to be a week-long activity. Now, you can easily get there and back in half a day.

The task at hand is always made simpler when you have the right tools. Surrogate and proxy testing are powerful tools that can be used to effectively release 288

Surrogates, Proxies and Distance Healing

trapped emotions regardless of whether that person is right in front of you or thousands of miles away. Gif ts from Above

I look on surrogate and proxy testing as gifts from above, gifts that allow us to get the job done even under trying circumstances.

For example, suppose you have a young child with an anger problem and suspect that a trapped emotion is involved. How do you muscle test a young child?

Suppose your husband who is overseas in the military is grieving over the loss of a comrade. How can you help him at such a distance?

Your dog becomes lethargic after one of your children goes away to college. You suspect there may be a trapped emotion involved, but how can you be sure?

Your pet may understand a lot of what you say, but will they know what it means to “resist” when you do a muscle test? If so, please call me!

Surrogate and proxy testing allow you to use someone else as a substitute for the person (or animal) you’re trying to test. Both methods are very simple and take two people, plus the person (or animal) you are testing. These two testing methods differ in that, while surrogate testing is used to test an untestable person who is physically present, proxy testing allows you to test a person who is not present, and who can indeed be literally anywhere in the world.


The Emotion Code

Surrogate Testing

The following analogy will help you to understand how surrogate testing works.

Many small farms and ranches in America have lowvoltage electrified cattle fences around their grazing areas. When a cow brushes up against the wire in an electrified fence, it receives a slight shock. These fences have proven to be simple, but effective at keeping cattle safely within their confines.

Not long after the first electric cattle fence was installed, farm boys made an interesting discovery. If one boy took hold of the fence, it was a shocking experience. The mild jolt of electricity pouring through his body was intense, but not life-threatening. If the boy holding onto the fence grabbed hold of another boy, suddenly that boy would experience the shocking discomfort, and the boy touching the wire would feel... nothing. He would merely be acting as the transmitter of the electricity, like an extension cord.

It didn’t take long for this discovery to make its way around the farming communities. Just about anyone who grew up on a farm with an electric fence will tell you that they have tried this. I have spoken to people who remember being on the end of a long

chain of people, and being continually shocked until they could get a hold of someone else to be on the end. It works.


Surrogates, Proxies and Distance Healing

Surrogate testing works on a similar principle. You can think of the subject who is actually being tested as the

“live wire.” They are the one with the electrical current you are trying to tap into. Because surrogate testing is always used on someone who is present, the surrogate simply touches the subject to make the connection. Then the testing is performed on the surrogate, rather than the subject.

Surrogate testing is the answer in any situation where a person is present physically, but is not testable.

Reasons that a person may be untestable might include the following:

1 Age, such as testing an infant, a small child or an elderly person.

2 Physical limitation such as injury, illness, pain, weakness, dehydration or neck misalignment.

3 Loss of consciousness such as sleep or being in comatose state.

4 Inability to reason due to mental retardation or if you are helping an animal.

Suppose you would like to test an infant. Anyone who is testable themselves, can act as the surrogate for the infant. In the case of a child, the surrogate could be the child’s mother or father or anyone that the child is comfortable with. Of course, if someone other than a 291

The Emotion Code

parent is testing a child, they should be sure to obtain permission from the child’s parents before attempting to help them.

Anyone who is testable can act as surrogate for anyone else.

I‘ve come to regard surrogate testing as an indispensable adjunct to muscle testing.

If you are getting an inconsistent response while testing someone, my recommendation is to put a surrogate in between, and perform the testing on the surrogate. The answers will be the same, and you will often find that using a surrogate will make it easier to detect the answers you are seeking.

You’ll find that certain people are somewhat easier to muscle test than others. For example, my wife Jean is very easy to test, and since we work together, I often use her as a surrogate.

How to Do Surrogate Testing

The first step in doing surrogate testing is to make sure that the surrogate himself, is testable. Do this as we have previously discussed, by simply having the surrogate make a yes or no, true or false statement followed by a muscle test. Once you have a testable surrogate, proceed. Follow these steps:




Surrogates, Proxies and Distance Healing

1 To make the connection, the surrogate simply

touches or holds hands with the subject.

2 Have the subject say their name in the form of a statement, “My name is ___.” Muscle test the

surrogate, who should test strong.

3 Next, have the subject make an incongruent

statement by saying, “My name is____,” using

any name that is not their own.

4 Muscle test the surrogate. The surrogate should test weak at this point. If not, repeat step three until they do. Once the surrogate tests weak when the subject makes an incongruent statement, the

connection has been made and testing may proceed. Within a few seconds after their initial physical contact, the surrogate and the subject will be connected and testing will be possible. Once this connection is made,





The Emotion Code

you will ask questions of the subject or have the subject make the appropriate statements, but the muscle you’re testing belongs to the surrogate, not the subject. Go through the questions described in the previous chapters to identify and locate any trapped emotions. Any change in energy that occurs in the subject will immediately flow through to the surrogate and become apparent through testing. To release a trapped emotion, pass the magnet down the back of the subject, if possible. If for some reason this is not possible, passing the magnet down the back of the surrogate will also work, provided they are still connected energetically. The connection with surrogate testing is easy to break. The surrogate simply stops touching the subject. Surrogate Testing Children

Young children are not usually able to be muscle tested reliably. Surrogate testing provides a simple and efficient way to get the answers you need to help them. We can inherit trapped emotions, or we can form them during our time in the womb or during

the birth process, and at any time thereafter.

It’s not uncommon for children to be born with trapped emotions. While it is rare for a child to be born with a Heart-Wall, it does happen.

Children are so precious! You can help them in many cases, simply by using a surrogate. The Emotion Code 294



Surrogates, Proxies and Distance Healing

works the same way for children as it does for adults. Children that have stressful and difficult lives are certain to have trapped emotions, but any child can have trapped emotions, no matter how much love

they receive or how favorable their home environment may be.




On the following pages is a dramatic story about how removing trapped emotions helped a very disadvantaged little girl in a very big way.


The Emotion Code

Julie’s Story

Julie was a “crack baby.” At one day old she was placed into the custody of a foster family who hoped to adopt her. Her problems were certainly not over with. When I first saw her at age two and a half, she had been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation, and severe Asthma. She was also suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Her behavior was like that of a wild animal.

She was in a state of extreme agitation at all times, and it seemed that she would have literally “climbed the walls” of my office if she could have. She could not play with toys or other children, and she could not sit still for a second. She could not speak at all. She had tantrums that would last for hours at a time. She had been hospitalized for her asthma seven times in the month before she was brought to our office, and had been on machines to help her breathe. Her foster mother was very patient with her, which I found very admirable.

By testing Julie through a surrogate, I was able to determine that she had a Heart-Wall, as well as other imbalances.

Here are the trapped emotions that were forming her Heart-Wall, which we were able to release, one trapped emotion per visit over a month’s time.


Surrogates, Proxies and Distance Healing

Inherited Love Unreceived from Birth Mother

“Love unreceived” is a fairly common emotion which occurs when someone feels unloved or when their love for another is rejected. Julie’s mother was suffering from a trapped emotion of love unreceived herself, and passed this on to Julie at the moment of conception. As a society our natural tendency is to judge people like Julie’s birth mother because of their addictions. We see the outward behavior and the poor choices that people like her make, and we tend to look down on them. But what we do not see is the invisible; the hurt, the sorrow and the grief that make up their own trapped emotions, their own Heart-Walls. Julie’s mother had such a burden.

Inherited Hatred from Her Birth Father

We may never know what Julie’s birth father had been through in his life that created hatred for him. Julie never met her birth father, but she was definitely affected by his trapped emotion of hatred. When trapped emotional energies pass from generation to generation, they interfere with how we would otherwise live. Emotions drive us to make the choices that we make. Emotions cause us to treat others the way that we treat them. Is it possible that trapped emotions that are inherited and passed from one generation to the next are partially to blame for generational abuse and dysfunction?


The Emotion Code

Grief and Anger from Her Birth Mother

Both grief and anger had become trapped during the first trimester of Julie’s time in the womb. These two emotions were her birth-mother’s response to being pregnant and had become trapped in Julie. These were the answers I received as I surrogate-tested Julie. Grief, Disheartedness and Sorrow,

Third Trimester

It is not unusual for a child to develop trapped emotions from the deep feelings that their mother is experiencing while she is carrying them. I found trapped emotions of grief, disheartedness and sorrow, all emotions that her mother was feeling during the third trimester. Trapped emotions are most commonly produced in the third trimester, but can be created at any time during pregnancy.

Hopelessness From Her Mother at Birth

Julie’s mother was apparently feeling the emotion of hopelessness while she was in labor. Julie was still in her mother’s body at this time, and within her mother’s energy field. As her mother’s body vibrated at the frequency of hopelessness, Julie began to resonate at that same frequency, and she was born with this trapped emotion.

Unworthy and Self-Abuse at Age One

The emotions of unworthy and self-abuse were created by Julie herself, because she had so much trapped emotional baggage compounded by toxicity from her mother’s drug abuse. Her foster mother told me that when she was around this age she used to bang her head against floors and walls.

The Results

After Julie’s third treatment she slept all night, and her breathing was no longer audible. By her fourth treatment her asthma symptoms were gone.

Shortly after her asthma symptoms disappeared, Julie’s foster mother received a visit from her social worker. The social worker spent nearly two hours chatting with Julie’s foster mother and filling out adoption paperwork. During this entire time, Julie sat on the floor and played quietly with her toys, something that she had never been able to do before. The amazed social worker asked, “What kind of medication do you have her on?” Betty replied, “Well, she is off all her medication now.” Betty tells the story here in her own words.

We got Julie when she was a day old; she was a

drug-exposed baby, and we planned on adopting

her. She was sick, and in and out of the hospital at least 3 or 4 times a month with severe asthma, and was on a machine to help her breath, on prednisone 299

The Emotion Code

and 2 or 3 other asthma medicines. She had cerebral palsy, and her behavior was just terrible.

We found Dr. Nelson for my mother, who was

not doing well. And after seeing how far along she came, we decided to bring Julie to him. She has

seen Dr. Nelson for 13 treatments, and when we

came she was in the hospital 7 times in December, and she was on a machine. It’s been 3 weeks since she has had any asthma medicine or the asthma

machine or anything. She is doing really well. She is walking much better, and her bad behavior is

almost gone.

She is talking now. When we started bringing her in, her speech was not there. She’s talking, counting, and she is doing very, very well. We are very pleased and very happy with the results so far. She is just a different child. It was to the point that we didn’t know if we were going to make it through a day

with her or not between the asthma and her fitthrowing; she could have fits that would last for 2

and a half hours. Now she may get irritated but no fits, she might cry a little bit, but that’s about it. We feel very happy and we feel very good! - Betty R. Gratif ying Results

Julie continued to improve, and before long, Julie’s doctors informed Betty that they were withdrawing their diagnoses of cerebral palsy and mental retardation. 300

Surrogates, Proxies and Distance Healing

Her erratic and uncontrollable behavior were gone, and Julie was like a new little girl.

Our experience is that many behavioral and health issues that children have can be greatly improved or alleviated when the Emotion Code is employed.

In Julie’s case, her health and mental development were greatly impacted as well. I can’t express how gratifying it can be to free little children from the grip of trapped negative energies that have the potential to ravage their young lives.

Surrogate Testing Animals

Surrogate testing is the perfect solution for animals. Many animals could probably be tested directly–if they could understand how to participate in the test!

But it’s much more effective to enlist a surrogate on their behalf.

Let’s say you want to test your horse. Simply ask the surrogate to touch the horse. Then direct your questions to the horse and test the surrogate to get the responses.

When I test animals, I always talk to the animal as if it were a human being. The animal may not understand the words, but they do seem to connect with the emotional intention that our thoughts convey. Believe me, animals understand what we’re trying to do for 301

The Emotion Code

them. Their ability to understand human intention may even exceed our own at times.

Surrogate testing works with cats, dogs and all kinds of animals. There are so many remarkable stories about using the Emotion Code on animals that I’ve devoted the next chapter to the topic.

Testing People Who are Unconscious

Surrogate testing also makes it possible to test someone who is unconscious, or even in a coma. Even if the person is unresponsive or unable to make verbal contact, their subconscious mind is still at work; it never sleeps. An unconscious person’s bodily functions are still working. They are still breathing. Their heart is still beating. Their subconscious mind is still alert to the environment and working to keep things on track. When you ask the mind-body a question, the subconscious mind will know the answer, but if the person is unconscious, they will not be able to actively participate in the test. So testing through a surrogate is the perfect solution.

Muscle testing should never be used in an emergency situation, when CPR would be a more appropriate response.

A few years ago my father suffered a massive brain aneurysm and fell into a coma. I was deeply concerned and eager to help him in any way I could. When Jean and I went to the hospital to see him, we found it 302

Surrogates, Proxies and Distance Healing

impossible to get close enough to work on him directly, due to all the tubes and wires that surrounded him. I asked Jean to act as surrogate for my father. Even though he was in a coma, we were immediately able to tap into his subconscious mind and determine the things that we could do to help him the most, in addition to all that was already being done by the hospital staff. It was an unforgettable experience that made me grateful indeed, for the gift of surrogate testing.

Getting Permission

Just remember that you always need to obtain permission before you work on anyone, whether you are working on them directly, using surrogate testing or proxy testing. Here are some commonsense guidelines on who to obtain permission from in different scenarios.

Subjec t to be Tested

Obtain Permission From

Pet ’s Owner

Surrogate testing is such a useful tool that I have found it indispensable in reaching the full potential of this work. It makes it simple and easy to work on pets, infants, small children, the unconscious, and those 303

The Emotion Code

who are either too weak or in too much pain to be tested.

Proxy Testing

When someone has been given authority to act for someone else, we commonly refer to the authorized person as a proxy. A proxy is someone who acts as a substitute. In proxy testing, the proxy temporarily

“becomes” the person being tested. By voluntarily putting themselves into the position of standing in for someone else, a proxy can be tested as if they were the subject of the testing, allowing their body to be used to benefit the subject.

Proxy testing is most useful when you want to help someone who is not present or who is inaccessible for some reason. When you release trapped emotions from someone at a distance, it is literally a form of remote or distance healing. Although remote healing has not been incorporated into Western Medicine, it has been practiced both anciently and in modern times by those who practice The Silva Method, Qigong,

GungFu, Reiki and other respected techniques.

Healing Allison in Japan

I once worked with a number of ballerinas from a local dance school near my practice. Allison, one of the dancers that I had been treating, went to Japan to dance with a group from Disneyland. Late one night, I got a phone call from Allison’s worried mother. “Doctor 304

Surrogates, Proxies and Distance Healing

Nelson, we have a big problem,” she said. “Allison has hurt her hip and can’t dance. She is supposed to be in a big show tomorrow. Is there anything you can do?”

I told her I’d like to speak to Allison, so she gave me the number of her hotel in Japan. When I reached her, Allison described the problem with her hip and said it had started bothering her that day for no apparent reason, and that she was having difficulty walking. Dancing the next day was out of the question.

Having gotten permission from Allison’s mother and from Allison to test her, I asked Jean to act as proxy. Although Allison was literally on the other side of the earth, we had no problem making the connection.

We chose to call Allison on the phone in this situation to get her input, but it’s important to note that proxy testing can be done without having the subject on the telephone while you are testing them. The energetic connection between the proxy and the subject is sufficient.

Distance is no barrier to energy. Energy is truly everywhere, and fills the world, and indeed fills the immensity of space.

There is as much energy in the air between objects as there is in the objects themselves. Since energy is continuous and everywhere-present, working on Allison presented no difficulty.


The Emotion Code

We discovered that Allison had two trapped emotions lodged in the tissues of her hip. The trapped emotions had to do with loneliness and grief over her trip to Japan.

“Do you feel that you don’t want to be in Japan?” I asked Allison on the phone.

She grudgingly admitted it was true. “It’s exciting to be here and all,” she said, “but I’m very homesick. I miss my mom and my friends. I just really don’t want to be here, and I wish I could go home.”

By running a magnet down Jean’s back, we released the two trapped emotions from Allison.

Even though Allison was half-a-world away in Japan, the results were instantaneous.

Before we hung up the phone with Allison, her hip pain was entirely gone. She went on stage the next day and danced without any problem.

Dorene’s Remote Experience

A patient named Dorene wanted to share this story about how remote healing was just as effective for her as being there in person.

I have seen Dr. Nelson intermittently over the last 10 years or so for various problems. I had been

suffering for several days with the symptoms of

a hiatal hernia, including heartburn and pain. I 306

Surrogates, Proxies and Distance Healing

was really miserable, and I wasn’t getting anything done.

My husband, Rick and I were sitting in our family room when Rick decided to make a phone call to

Dr. Nelson to see if there was anything that he could do to help me. He found through testing that my

symptoms were being caused by a trapped emotion

and he treated it. I can honestly say that the relief was instantaneous as we were sitting there and

the symptoms completely left me before the phone conversation was over. I highly recommend that

people be open to this type of treatment. There are wonderful discoveries available to us today through remote treatments by those who are knowledgeable.

- Dorene N.

How to Do Proxy Testing

Let’s talk about the actual steps involved in doing a proxy test.

Above all else, you must obtain permission from the subject who is going to be tested. It’s an invasion of privacy and is unethical to test someone without their permission.

Let’s say that Ryan Jones would like to be tested and treated. He has given his permission to you and your friend, Susan to do so by proxy, since he is out of town. Susan has volunteered to act as proxy for Ryan, so you will be doing the testing on Susan.


The Emotion Code

1 As in any other type of muscle testing, you must make sure that the person who will be acting as

proxy is testable, so perform a baseline test on the proxy first to make sure.

2 To establish an energetic connection between

Susan and Ryan, have Susan make the statement, “My name is Ryan Jones.” Now perform a muscle test. This statement will most likely elicit a weak muscle response at first. But the connection will occur if you persist a bit.

3 Simply have the proxy repeat this statement, (in this example, “My name is Ryan Jones”) a few

more times, each time followed by a muscle test. The clearer your intention to connect Ryan and

Susan, the faster it will happen. Generally within a few attempts, the energetic connection will be made, and the muscle test will suddenly become strong. To continue with this particular example, Susan will now test strong when she says, “My name is Ryan

Jones.” If Susan makes the statement “My name is Susan” she will test weak temporarily. Susan is now acting on behalf of Ryan. At this point, everything that is tested on Susan as the proxy, is actually being tested on Ryan, however far away he may be.

It’s important to understand that when this energetic connection is made between the proxy and the subject, the connection is very real.




Surrogates, Proxies and Distance Healing

In some way that we do not understand, the needs of the proxy are entirely set aside temporarily in order to aid the subject.




Any question that you ask the proxy, you are now asking the subject. Any trapped emotion that you find by testing the proxy, you are actually finding in the body of the subject.

Until the connection is broken, anything that you want to test on the subject, you will simply test on the proxy; the answers will be the same. In this same way, any correction that you want to make on the subject, or any trapped emotion that you want to release on the subject, you will simply perform on the proxy. As you can imagine, this is a very useful tool. It allows you to not only find out what trapped emotions are stuck inside the body of a remote person, but to release 309

The Emotion Code

those emotions from afar – and often, relieve their symptoms immediately.

After the connection is made, you can use the Emotion Code the same way it has been presented previously. Ask questions and identify any trapped emotions in the subject, by testing the proxy.

When you identify a trapped emotion by testing the proxy, you can release it just as you would if the subject were there with you. Simply use a magnet on the proxy. Remember that energy knows no

barriers of distance. Your intention to heal and your belief that it can be done make it so.

Breaking the Connection

Once you have completed this process, it is very important to “break the connection” between the proxy and the person being helped. If the connection is not broken, the proxy may actually begin to eventually experience the emotional state of the person they were acting as proxy for.

On one occasion, I had been using the Emotion Code to help a woman who lived in Cleveland. Her sister had been a patient of mine for some time at my clinic in California, and would act as proxy for her sister on occasion.

I once made the mistake of not breaking the connection between the two of them at the end of a session. The 310

Surrogates, Proxies and Distance Healing

next day my patient came back to the office and said,

“Something is wrong. I feel like I’m turning into my sister. I’m feeling her emotions, I think. It’s weird. Could I still be connected to her?” I immediately realized my mistake, broke the connection, and she felt like herself again.

When you are finished, thank the person who has acted as proxy. To break the connection, simply have the proxy state their own name and muscle test them until they test strong.

For example, if the proxy’s own name is Susan, have her say, “My name is Susan.” If she tests weak, she is still connected to the subject. In that case simply ask her to repeat the statement with her own name in it until she tests strong. That’s how you know the connection is broken. It’s just that simple.

Something Special

I feel that there is something truly sacred and special about healing using a proxy. The way that the subconscious mind of the proxy subordinates the self in favor of the subject is amazing. The knowledge of how to do this, as well as how to make the connection at any distance, is hard-wired into us all.

I am always thrilled when I work with someone long distance by proxy and the subject finds an immediate improvement or release of symptoms. I hope you will 311

The Emotion Code

give both surrogate and proxy testing a try. Anyone can do it, including you.

Though I am confident that you can learn to do proxy testing with practice, I find that some of my readers are interested in having our help.

And generally speaking,

they are ignored.

- Alice Walker


The Emotion Code

and Animals

As any animal lover will tell you, animals have feelings, too. They may not be able to talk about them, but if you watch their behavior and get to know them, you will soon be able to recognize their subtle changes of emotion. Even without words, animals

express their emotions clearly. When emotionally upsetting events occur, animals can suffer from trapped emotions just as people can.

A Horse is a Horse, of Course…

My first experience treating trapped emotions in animals occurred somewhat by accident. One day, I received a telephone call from a patient named Linda, a 317

The Emotion Code

trainer from San Juan Capistrano. She had come to me a year before with a rather severe case of asthma that I’d helped her with, but this call was about something else entirely.

“I have kind of a strange request and I’m wondering if you can you help me,” she said. “One of my horses, Ranger, is having a problem with frequent urination. I’ve had three veterinarians examine him, but none of them can find out what’s wrong. As far as they can tell, he’s perfectly healthy. But he’s causing a terrible problem – not just for me, but the adjacent stall owners and horses as well. I know that you occasionally work on animals, and I’d really appreciate it if you could come to the stables and see what you can do.”

When Linda had come to my office for her own treatments we’d talked about our shared love of horses. I had grown up around horses in Montana and never missed an opportunity to ride. Linda had shown me photos of four or five beautiful horses she kept in her stables, but I’d never been to the stables to see them. The next day, Jean and I made the trip down to Linda’s stables. We walked into a large, rectangular building with a peaked roof that covered about forty horses’

stalls in two rows. As we arrived at Ranger’s stall, we could see immediately why Linda was so concerned about him. Unlike all the other neat, clean stalls we had seen in the building, this horse’s stall was a soggy mess, as he was having a urination problem.


The Emotion Code and Animals

Linda brought Ranger outside so we could work on him on dry ground. Jean volunteered to act as surrogate, and put one hand on the horse, holding her other arm out for me to muscle test.

We determined that there was something causing an imbalance in Ranger’s kidneys, but after testing him for a few minutes, I was at a loss as to what the source of the imbalance might be.

“Why don’t you test to see if there’s a trapped emotion?”

Jean said.

I laughed out loud. “Test a horse for trapped emotions?

That’s really funny…” I was born and raised in Montana, and had two different horses of my own while I was growing up. While I loved my horses and took good care of them, like most people, I never imagined that they might suffer from trapped emotions.

Jean looked at me calmly and repeated, “Just test and see.” Jean is very intuitive, and she was probably sensing the truth about what was going on with Ranger.

So I asked out loud, “Is this imbalance due to a trapped emotion?” and pressed down on Jean’s arm. The answer was “Yes.”

As I went through the chart of emotions, we were surprised to find that the trapped emotion was

“conflict.” By a process of elimination, we determined that Ranger felt conflicted in his relationship with 319

The Emotion Code

another horse. Linda was able to confirm that a new horse had been brought into the stables in the past few months. Ranger and this new horse were at odds from the first day they met and occasionally had to be separated to prevent them from injuring one another. They had moved the new horse further away from

Ranger’s stall, but the two horses still came into contact with each other almost daily, if only in passing. Further testing showed that this trapped emotion had become lodged in the right kidney, and was indeed the underlying cause of Ranger’s kidney imbalance.

Once we had verified the trapped emotion, I released it by rolling a magnet down Ranger’s back. When I retested Ranger through Jean it was apparent that the trapped emotion had been released.

From that moment on, Ranger began to recover. When I talked to Linda on the phone a few days later, she told me that his stall was dry for the first time in months. The problem never recurred.

Although I rarely worked on animals, as my practice consisted almost entirely of people, this experience opened a whole new dimension for me, and it can for you, too.

Working on Animals

Releasing trapped emotions from an animal is essentially no different than releasing trapped emotions from a human being. You will use the same Chart of 320

The Emotion Code and Animals

Emotions that you are already familiar with. The only psychological hurdle you might have to overcome is that you will be speaking directly to the animal, or rather to the subconscious mind of the animal, instead of the subconscious mind of a person. Everything else is pretty much the same.

1 Since you will be using a surrogate to test the animal, perform a baseline test on the surrogate to make sure they are testable.

2 The surrogate will place one hand on the animal and hold their other arm outstretched, to be

used for muscle testing. The tester will then make sure the animal and the surrogate are connected by asking the animal a simple question. For example, if you’re working on a horse and the horse’s name is “Buck”, you might ask the animal “Is your name Buck?”

3 Muscle test the surrogate, and when the surrogate tests strong when congruent questions are directed to the animal, and weak when incongruent questions are directed to the animal, the connection is made.

Once the energetic connection is established, you can test the surrogate for answers as if you were testing a human being. For all practical purposes, there is no difference.

Your first experience testing an animal may really surprise you. To suddenly open a line of communication 321

The Emotion Code

with an animal is a fascinating experience that is oftentimes quite moving.

Twiggs Gets Dognapped

A little Lhasa Apso named Twiggs is a perfect example. His owners, Brett and Cathy, told me his story when they brought him in.

A few months before, they had all been taking a walk together in the foothills near San Juan Capistrano. Twiggs, who was very inquisitive and loved to go exploring, had trotted off down the trail about 50 or 60 feet in front of them. Suddenly, there was a rustling of leaves and a coyote emerged from the brush along the trail. A heartbeat later, the coyote was running away with Twiggs in his jaws. Brett and Cathy barely had time to move before he was gone. They chased the coyote into the trees, but there was nothing they could do.

Going back home, broken hearted, they resigned themselves to the loss of their dog. They were still grieving four days later, when Twiggs showed up on their doorstep. He stood there quivering, his hair all matted and bloody, glad to be home. They rushed him to the animal hospital, where the vet stitched up his wounds, gave him antibiotics, and saved his life.

“It was like a miracle,” Cathy said, stroking Twiggs, as she held him snugly in her arms. “We were so relieved!”


The Emotion Code and Animals

“So what seems to be the problem?” I asked.

“He’s just not the same dog any more,” Brett explained.

“He never barks or chases anything. He seems to have lost his interest in life.”

“And he shakes all the time,” Cathy said, holding Twiggs up so I could see how much he was trembling.

“The vet says it might be neurological damage,” Brett added. “He said there’s nothing he can do. It’s probably permanent.”

Cathy set Twiggs down on the table, so I could examine him. I checked for misalignments in the spine. I found a few, as I had expected, and adjusted them.

“The thing is,” Cathy said, “We’re wondering if we should put him down….”

“His quality of life just isn’t very good any more,” Brett said. “He never barks or runs around like he used to. We have to carry him everywhere. His curiosity is gone. He just seems like he’s suffering all the time.”

We all looked at Twiggs, sitting on the adjusting table, shivering, with a miserable, frightened look in his eyes.

I could only imagine the terror he must have experienced when he was attacked and carried off, and decided it was likely he was suffering from a trapped emotion. After getting permission from Brett and Cathy, I explained surrogate testing and asked one of them to act as surrogate for Twiggs.


The Emotion Code

When I asked if he had a trapped emotion, the answer was “Yes.” I assumed that the emotion would be fear or terror. As I narrowed the list of emotions, what turned up was surprising. The emotion that filled this little dog’s heart and soul at the time it was being carried off by the coyote wasn’t terror, or anything like that. It was sadness.

As he was being carried off in the jaws of the coyote, all Twiggs could think about was that he was never going to see Brett and Cathy again, and the thought overwhelmed him with sadness.

Once we identified the trapped emotion, I quickly released it with a magnet and the treatment was over.

When I set Twiggs down on the floor, he took off like a speeding bullet! He ran down the hall and into the waiting room. When he had first come into that waiting room, in Cathy’s arms, he’d been shivering so hard, he hadn’t seemed to notice any of the people there. Now, he greeted each patient with several nice, healthy barks. Then he rushed down the hall and stuck his head into every room, barking at least once, before he finally ended up in front of Brett and Cathy, happily wagging his tail.

It was an amazing, instantaneous transformation. We were all astonished and touched by this miraculous healing. According to his owners, Twiggs stopped 324

The Emotion Code and Animals

shaking from that moment and his charming, inquisitive personality returned.

The great thing about testing animals for trapped emotions is that what you see is what you get. Animals don’t pretend they’re feeling better just to make you happy. Often the effect is immediate, and quite profound.

Twiggs seemed to know that we were trying to help him. And when he suddenly felt better, the change was obvious to everyone!

Brandy’s Naughty Behavior

We dropped in to visit with some friends at their home one evening, when I was “greeted” by their dog Brandy in a very enthusiastic, but rather obscene way.

“I’m so sorry!” Skip said. “Every time we have guests over, he rushes up and starts humping their leg! It’s really embarrassing, and there’s nothing we can do to get him to stop, so we finally have resorted to locking him outside when we have company. We didn’t realize you were going to stop by, otherwise he would have been locked out in the backyard.”

As we sat with them our conversation quickly turned to other topics, but from where I was sitting I could see poor Brandy on the other side of the sliding glass door, looking forlorn.


The Emotion Code

Changing the subject of our conversation back to Brandy, I told them that a trapped emotion could be the cause of his odd behavior. They hadn’t heard of anything like this before, but they trusted me and were willing to let me check Brandy.

It didn’t take long to determine that my hunch was right. Brandy’s trapped emotion was grief, and here is how it happened.

The family had recently purchased a cabin in the mountains. At first, they’d taken Brandy with them in the backseat, but he couldn’t endure the long drive. He kept getting carsick and throwing up in the car. Soon they started leaving him behind. Brandy would get all excited, watching them pack up their gear, and then they’d drive away without him. Brandy was distraught, and didn’t understand why he was left behind when he was so excited to go and be with them.

That’s when the trouble started. They had never had any trouble with Brandy before, but suddenly Brandy was different, and when a visitor would come to the house, Brandy would rush them and hump their leg, to everyone’s disgust. Apparently, he couldn’t express his grief any other way.

Once we cleared the trapped emotion, that behavior totally stopped. The family still didn’t take Brandy to the cabin, but at least he got to be in the house fulltime again. 326

Boofy the Paranoid Cat

The unique thing about this story is not so much what happened to her cat, but how a young woman

discovered her own gift and found a new direction in her life.

After my friend, Cyrena, and I finished Dr. Nelson’s two-day seminar on trapped emotions, we were

eager to try out our new knowledge. When we got

back to my house, we both spotted my cat asleep on the couch and thought “Aha! Our first victim!”

Boofy was a stray cat that adopted our family when he was about one-year old. We had cared for him

well and had even given him a collar with a bell, so he wouldn’t get lost again. We tried for a month to find his owners, but when we couldn’t, we decided to keep him because he was so well-behaved.

Although he was always friendly with us, Boofy

had a terrible fear of strangers. Instead of rubbing up against their legs, looking for attention, like most cats do, Boofy seemed to see all strangers as a threat. If someone Boofy didn’t know came into the room, he would bolt and run.

Using myself as a surrogate, I tested Boofy for

trapped emotions. As we suspected, the trapped

emotion was fear. Once we cleared the trapped

emotion by running the Magboy down his back,

Boofy rolled over to have us scratch his stomach, but nothing else particularly happened.


The Emotion Code

But a few days later, when a visitor came over,

we noticed that he didn’t run. In fact, when any new person came into the room, Boofy now acted

like any other cat, sometimes going up to them for petting and attention.

Thanks to Dr. Nelson’s training, I’ve found that I enjoy working with animals. I’ve even discovered that I have a special ability for working with them. Using self-testing, I can identify trapped emotions quickly and clear them. I have my own

pet therapy business now, and have seen for myself the remarkable changes that come to animals using the Emotion Code.

Abandoned Puppies

I received another touching letter from Katrina, who has become very proficient at using the Emotion Code with animals.

Last year, I received a phone call from one of my friends asking if they could borrow our boat. They had been at a private park by the Stillaguamish

River when they thought they heard whimpering

puppies. After looking around, they saw the puppies by the cliff across the river, stranded on a small sandbar. My friend was afraid that the next rainstorm would raise the river and drown the

puppies, so she needed my boat to rescue them.

and rescued the puppies. One was already dead,

but we took the other four home with us. They were beautiful black puppies with white markings, a

mixed breed of pit bull and German shepherd.

One of them would not stop shivering, even when

I wrapped it up in a blanket and held it next to me. I knew it wasn’t cold, it was in shock. But I got out my emotion chart and started testing for trapped emotions, using myself as the surrogate. The puppy’s primary trapped emotions were terror, shock, fear, betrayal and abandonment.

As I worked with the puppy, asking questions about what had happened and testing myself for

the answers, I learned that the puppies had been deliberately abandoned and left there to drown. It’s easy to understand how upsetting that would be! I carefully cleared all of the trapped emotions from the puppy and confirmed that they were gone.

After less than a half-hour of work, the puppy had stopped shivering and calmed down. Even though

I was happy to keep holding him snugly in the

blanket, he wanted to get up and play.

Knowing the trauma these puppies had been

through, I cleared the trapped emotions from the other puppies, too. I wanted to be sure to give them a better start with the families that would adopt 329

them when we took them to the animal shelter. The pound had no problem finding them good homes.

A Horse’s Sorrow

After I’d worked on Ranger, word started getting around about my unusual approach to treating animals. An owner asked if I would come to look at her horse, Valiant, who was having difficulty with his gait, or the specific pattern of his leg movements.

Valiant was an elegant horse used in dressage, a particular kind of horse training in which the horse learns to follow very specific movements by the rider. With an abnormal gait, it’s impossible for a horse to work, so Valiant’s training had ground to a halt. A veterinarian had seen the horse, but could find nothing physically wrong, so Karla, the horse’s owner, turned to me for help.

My arrival at the stables caused a bit of a stir. The owners, horse trainers and stable hands were curious to see this new technique that purportedly freed horses of their emotional baggage. A small crowd gathered around the stall as I worked. I asked for a volunteer to act as a surrogate and a rider named Melissa volunteered.

As I tested Valiant through Melissa, I soon found the reason for his gait problem. There was a trapped emotion that was imbalancing his hind-quarters. 330

The Emotion Code and Animals

Further testing revealed that the trapped emotion was sorrow.

“Is it sorrow about another horse?” I asked. Melissa’s arm went weak, which meant “No.”

“Is it sorrow about a human being?” Her arm went weak again. “No.”

“Is it sorrow about a dog?” “No.”

“About a cat?” “No.”

Knowing it would help to know the nature of the

sorrow, but running out of possibilities, I kept at it. Seeing a squirrel nearby, I asked, “Is it sorrow about a squirrel?” “No.”

“Is it sorrow about a bird?” At this point, Melissa’s arm tested strong, indicating a “Yes.”

A horse feeling sorrow about a bird? This somehow struck me as being quite funny, and I started to laugh, along with everyone else. This was really unexpected.

Suddenly, Karla, the horse’s owner, spoke up. “Wait a minute. I think I know what this is about.”

I could see from the look on her face that she was serious. “Last week,” she said, “a baby bird fell out of its nest onto the road, right in front of Valiant’s stall. The baby bird struggled for its life for a time, but it ended up dying.”


The Emotion Code

“Is this sorrow about the baby bird that died?” I asked Valiant through Melissa. The answer was “Yes.”

Valiant must have seen the whole thing. As this baby bird struggled helplessly for its life and eventually died, Valiant was overwhelmed with sorrow, and a trapped emotion was formed, which was imbalancing his hind-quarters and affecting his gait.

Running a magnet down his back, I released the trapped emotion. Karla led him out of the stables and walked him. Lo and behold, Valiant’s gait problem was suddenly gone, along with his trapped emotion of sorrow about a little baby bird.

Amazing Horse Stories

Our children were taking riding lessons at a local equestrian park and we ended up treating the owner’s horses for trapped emotions. The owner tells the story here.

I have been involved with horse training and riding since I was fourteen years old. I now own and

operate an equestrian facility. I regularly compete in National Reining Horse Association events around the country with my horses.

I met Dr. Nelson and his wife, Jean a year or so ago, and have been privileged to have the two of them work on some of my horses, with amazing


The Emotion Code and Animals

results, and I would like to share with you what I have seen.

All my horses are quarter horses, and are considered working cattle horses.

One of my favorite horses is Newt. He is now 14

years old, and has been retired for 5 years, which is very unusual for a horse, but Newt has some

problems. About 10 years ago, Newt slept on an

anthill, and was bitten repeatedly by ants in a large area of skin over his left hind-quarter. Within a few days, all the hair fell out of that area, and he never really recovered from it. Although the hair grew back, I quit showing him about 6 or 7 years ago, as he just couldn’t perform any more, and it was obvious to me that he was in pain. His energy level was very low, and it seemed that he was suddenly old before his time. Over the last five years he has been totally retired, but I have been taking him out about twice a year to work him just a bit, just to give him something to do.

Over the years I have had vets look at him, chiropractors, and even tried shock therapy, but nothing worked at all. Newt is a very valuable

horse. Both of his grandparents were from DocBarr twice, from both mother and father. DocBarr is a very famous quarter horse. His mother’s lineage is in the top 5 reining and cow-horses in the country. 333

The Emotion Code

As Dr. Nelson and Jean worked on Newt, they told me that he was suffering from trapped emotions.

Specifically, he had lack of control and nervousness from around age 2. This dated back to before I had him, when he had been worked too hard and too

aggressively by his former owner/trainer. They

said he had some sort of disconnection going on in the left hindquarter, dating back to the ant bites as well.

Since Dr. Nelson and his wife worked on him,

(he had a total of one treatment that lasted about 30 minutes) Newt is like a new horse. In fact, it’s like he has suddenly gone back to where he was

when he was a four-year-old. I can now use him to rope cattle, which puts a lot of strain on the horse’s back, with no problem. I can rein him and put him through all his paces, and he performs at the top of his game. It’s amazing to me how he acts now. He is full of energy, and wants to play all the time. After being retired and unable to do much of anything at all for many years, Newt is brand-new.

Another horse of mine I call Buck. He is probably the best horse I have, and is a beautiful little buckskin quarter horse. I got him three months

ago. From the very beginning, he was suffering

from a severe lack of energy and trust, and had

no desire to do anything. He didn’t want to work. I happen to know how he was trained, and it was

way too aggressive, to put it kindly. My observation 334

The Emotion Code and Animals

is that you can get a horse to perform with that kind of harsh training for about a year, and then you are all done, because the horse finally says,

“You can hurt me all you want, and I just don’t

care anymore. I’m done.”

Well, Buck had reached that point, and he was

done. He hated his life, hated his job, and hated people, because they had mistreated him so much. Dr. Nelson and his wife checked him out, and

found trapped emotions of hatred at age 3 (he felt that the trainer hated him), depression at age 3, and other emotions of overwhelmed, panic, and

feeling taken for granted.

Since then, Buck has changed in a big way. His

cadence has changed, he is much smoother to ride, and feels much more relaxed, which is how he should feel to me when I ride him. In addition, he is no longer afraid of people, and much less guarded. He is now a normal horse in all those aspects, he loves to work now, and is full of energy. It’s really amazing. He is like a new horse.

Last month, I took Buck to the NHRA show,

where he took 3rd out of 30 head in the stallion class event, and 3rd in the trainer horse event. I am happy to say that he beat his old trainer’s best by five points at this show. Training by instilling fear might work for a while, but trust lasts forever. 335

The Emotion Code

I’m not sure how Dr. Nelson’s method works, but I am absolutely convinced that trapped emotions are real. It is truly amazing to see this process done and to see the results that are obtained. Without Dr. Nelson knowing anything about a horse’s history, the emotions and things that come up are exactly right on.

I have seen this method work, and I can see and

feel the results in my horses. When I try to describe it to people they say it sounds like Voodoo. All I know is, it works, and that’s all I care about.

invaluable in working with horses, as well as people, and I have many amazing stories that I could share, but here are a couple of great ones.

One horse that was in training with me for several years would go lame several times a year. We had three different vets look at him, x-rays, chiropractic, and acupuncture done but nothing seemed to work

during these times. It was very frustrating since we were competing with him and never knew just

when this mysterious lameness would occur. When

I learned the Emotion Code through being a patient of Dr. Nelson’s for 10 years, as well as going to his seminars, I began to use energetic balancing on the horses I had in training with me.

Highlander would go lame in his right hock area. I began to clear his emotional baggage. He had a Heart-Wall that was 29 stalls thick. I was able to eliminate all of the Heart-Walls through clearing. He had abandonment issues, anger and resentment

at his owner, and major grief. I was able to trace this back to when he was 5 years old and was being trailered. He had fallen down in the trailer. The owner never stopped to help him and he had to lie that way the entire trip. I asked the owner if this had indeed happened and she ashamedly admitted

that it had. She simply did not know what to do, so drove with him in the trailer until she got to the show grounds. Highlander knew that she knew,


The Emotion Code

and he resented her for it. He also felt abandoned by her.

After I was able to clear everything, he went from being totally lame in the hock to being completely sound within 10 minutes. He remained sound for

the next 3 years while I had him in training. Only two times did I have to clear him again, and that was when he saw horses that didn’t want to load

into a trailer and I think he recalled his grief. But still he stayed sound and went on to win several Championships.

Another horse I was training in a clinic came in lame. I had never taught him before. I asked his owner if I could muscle test him to see if this was a physical lameness or an emotional one. It was

an emotional lameness. I was able to clear his grief issues over the loss of another horse that had to be put down in his barn. He was mourning the horse

and short-circuited in many organs as well as his heart. It took me about 10 minutes to clear him, after which he immediately trotted off sound. He continued to be sound for many more Clinics until he was sold to another home.

I have used the Emotion Code on horses I plan to purchase to see if they have emotional short circuits and if they are indeed trainable. It has helped me enormously in choosing good horses. I am always

muscle testing my horses to do check-ups on their 338

health status. I think they are physically healthier and happier because of Dr. Nelson’s methods.

- Debbie Spitzenpfeil, Oregon


We populate this earth along with the animals, and many times we end up in the position of being their caretakers in a very personal way. They are our companions and our friends. We sometimes come

to love them as if they were another member of our family, and this is as it should be.

Like our family, it falls to us to make sure the animals in our care are fed and sheltered, and to do our best to keep them safe and healthy.

Keep an eye on the animals in your care. If something unsettling happens – like the baby bird dying right in front of Valiant – think about how your animal might feel. When an animal develops symptoms of any kind, whether they are physical or behavioral, they may reflect a trapped emotion. You now have the tools to help them on your own.

Don’t be afraid to try. Just let your heart be full of love for the animal, have a prayer in your heart, have a clear intention to help them, believe that you can do it, and you will be successful.

Life Without

Trapped Emotions

To live a life completely free of trapped emotions would truly be a wonderful thing. It might be

achievable, but from what I have observed, there is rarely a person that does not get a trapped emotion from time to time. It seems to be part of the human experience.

Life is a mixed bag, filled with blessings to be grateful for, difficulties to overcome, opportunities to explore, decisions to make, and grief and suffering at times. All of these things give us experience. They provide ways for us to exercise faith, gain knowledge and develop love. All of the human family is connected and everything that happens to one of us affects everyone to one degree or another. Through our experiences we 345

The Emotion Code

have the opportunity to strengthen our connection by developing understanding and compassion for one another.

The way you decide to feel each day with all of the many things that you face will determine how life will flow for you.

Your attitude has tremendous bearing on what will present itself before you, on the opportunities that will come, and on what you will learn.

In reality, you attract much of what you see before you because of what you believe you can have in your life.

Your Focus Determines Reality

The choice is there each new day, to feel good or to feel bad about the things that are going on in your life. There are almost always both good and not-so-good things happening at any given time. What you choose to focus on is a big factor in the happiness equation. Sometimes people put too much focus on the past. If you choose to focus your mind on a negative event from your past and re-experience those emotions, you can actually create a trapped emotion about that event, even long after it has happened.

One particular patient named Diane comes to mind in this regard. Diane’s father had died 10 years previously, yet I found a trapped emotion of sorrow about his 346

Life Without Trapped Emotions

death that she had created 4 years after he died. While she had made it through his funeral without creating any trapped emotions, she had chosen to allow the negative emotion of sorrow to overcome her on the fourth anniversary of his death. At that time, she had made a conscious decision to re-experience her loss and sorrow, instead of thinking about the wonderful and positive things that her father represented to her. The result was a negative and potentially dangerous trapped emotion.

Stop for a moment and think about your own thoughts. During any given day of your life, do your thoughts tend to be more positive or more negative? Do you choose to dwell on favorable, positive things and decide to feel grateful, content and joyful or do you choose to dwell on negative emotions?

If you are in a troubled relationship, for example, there are almost always a number of good things that you can think of that you appreciate in your partner. Focusing on the good things about a relationship and giving your attention to its positive aspects can help to create gratitude and happiness for you. To do so may even open a way to create positive change, especially if it is your intention to build and preserve the relationship.

By contrast, whenever we place our focus on our problems and on the things that are going wrong in our lives, we end up creating more negativity. I saw a movie once where a wise teacher told his student, 347

The Emotion Code

“Remember, your focus determines your reality.” How true that statement really is! You can see a glass as being half-full or half-empty, but seeing the glass as half-full is more empowering and will create a more positive reality for you.

The Law of Attraction

Feeling positive emotions about what you want will literally help you to create your dreams. When you visualize your life the way you want it to be and feel the way that it feels as if you already had your dream, you will eventually find opportunities to create the things that make you happy right in front of you. Focusing on the things that you don’t want and feeling negatively will either create or perpetuate those same negative problems in your life.

For example, if you spend your time thinking about how you can’t seem to find love, the signal you are sending out to the universe is that you can’t find love. As a result, you won’t find it, or it will at least be more difficult to find.

We are constantly radiating our thoughts into the cosmos. I believe that these thoughts fill the immensity of space, and that they are not limited by the speed of light or any other limitation. Our thoughts are powerful, and what we think and feel is what we create. 348

Life Without Trapped Emotions

Remember Proverbs 23:7, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”

Creation is always happening. Every time an individual has a thought, or a prolonged, chronic way of thinking, they’re in the creation process. Something is going to manifest out of those thoughts... And so you end up attracting to you the predominant thoughts that you’re holding in your awareness, whether those thoughts are conscious

or unconscious.

- Rev. Michael Beckwith1

You may already understand the importance of controlling your conscious thoughts, and keeping those conscious thoughts in a positive vein. But what about your subconscious thoughts?

Your subconscious mind can have a very great effect on the outcomes that you are trying to achieve in your life. Trapped emotions work their negative influence on you in large part through the mechanism of your subconscious mind. You may be trying your best to think positively and see the glass as half-full, while your subconscious trapped emotions are betraying you by constantly radiating their own particular negative thought-frequencies into the universe.

The more trapped emotions you have, the more negative thought-energy they are radiating, and the

The Secret, TS Productions, LLC. 006. 349

The Emotion Code

more difficult it will be to attract what you really want.

The good news is that trapped emotions can be released. When you make a habit of using the Emotion Code regularly, you will be able to avoid the damage that occurs on a subconscious level of thinking and feeling because you will be changing your thoughtfrequencies. When you free yourself of negative trapped emotions, you will find it easier to choose the positive emotions that will help you to attract what you really want in your life.

You Choose Your Emotions

Have you ever made a statement like, “My husband makes me so mad…” or “That made me so depressed…”

or “That put me in such a bad mood”? Statements like these are very common. If you listen to yourself more closely you might catch yourself saying something similar. If you stop and think about statements like these, you will realize they’re quite ridiculous. The fact is that nobody can make you feel any emotion that you don’t choose to feel.

Things that happen to you do not really determine the emotions that you feel. While you may not have conscious control over all of the events that affect your life, you do have the ability to choose how you think, 350

Life Without Trapped Emotions

feel, and act. No matter what happens, you ultimately choose the emotions that you feel.

Many of us unwittingly become victim to our emotions at times. You may not believe that you are in control of how you feel. Negative emotions can emerge so quickly that it may appear as if there is no time to choose a different emotion than the natural reactive emotion that just seems to come out of nowhere. If you are late for an appointment, you may automatically feel anxious. If someone treats you rudely, you might automatically feel miffed. When you are insulted or abused, you may immediately feel resentful or angry in response.

If you are like most people, unacceptable things happen from time to time. Unless you take control of your emotions, you will simply react. When you allow yourself to react, your subconscious mind may offer up a negative emotion for you, based upon the emotions you have chosen in similar circumstances in your past.

While you may have always responded in a certain negative way to a given situation, your past negative responses do not have to be the same as your future responses. You have a choice every time you need to deal with or confront something negative. You can choose to react how you have always reacted or you can choose differently. The past does not have to equal the future.


The Emotion Code

The reality about emotions is that you always choose them. You always choose how you feel. Always. Becoming aware of this is in itself quite empowering. You are the author of your own emotional experiences. You can choose whatever emotion you want in any

situation you are faced with. It takes some practice, and it’s not always easy, but it can be done.

The next time you find yourself filled with a negative emotion, stop and think about the process you went through to arrive at that feeling. It might seem like the emotion chose you, but you really did choose the emotion.

Making a conscious choice instead of allowing old subconscious patterns to run you is choosing to evolve and grow.

Using your new knowledge and awareness of trapped emotions will help you to be able to stop and think before letting an automatic response get the best of you.

The next time you are faced with a negative situation, don’t simply react. Think! Ask yourself, “Which will serve me better, a negative emotion or a positive emotion?” My guess is that positivity will usually win. There are all kinds of great ways you can choose to feel. Here’s a list of positive emotions that you can use the next time you want to choose positively.

About Letting Go

In the book “Man’s Search for Meaning” the importance of choosing your own emotions instead of allowing negativity to choose you is illustrated very well. Dr. Victor Frankl was a psychologist who was sent to a concentration camp by the Nazis during the Second World War. As a student of human behavior, Dr.

Frankl naturally began to observe the people around him. People’s reactions to their predicament and the horrors they observed around them varied widely. Dr. Frankl found that those people that chose the emotion of hopelessness, and who simply gave up did not survive for long.

To his surprise, Dr. Frankl found that in the midst of indescribable horror there were still those individuals that chose emotions of love and hope. He wrote:


The Emotion Code

“We who lived in concentration camps can

remember the men who walked through the huts

comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human

freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

About Pride

When you hear the word pride, what do you think of?

Pride in an accomplishment? Pride in a job well done?

Perhaps you think of pride in your athletic team or pride in being the citizen of a certain country. While all of these kinds of pride are probably quite all right, there is another kind of pride that is insidious and damaging.

The kind of pride that hurts us is sometimes called false pride. It is when we put ourselves in a state of opposition to others or to God. It is when we feel hatred, jealousy, resentment, superiority, ill will, or anger toward another. False pride is selfish. It can be like a temper tantrum, when our way is the best and only way.

False pride is often very difficult to recognize in ourselves; it has been called “the great vice” because it is so common among people. One of the real problems with this kind of pride is that it makes you unwilling to forgive others. Instead, pride makes you want to hold 354

Life Without Trapped Emotions

on to the real or imagined hurts you have suffered, and leads you to all kinds of negative emotions such as anger, frustration and resentment. Eventually you may end up wanting revenge on those who may have wronged you.

When we pit our own will in resistance against others or against God or the Universe, we steal our own power. The source of all power is God; if we are working against Him we paralyze ourselves and stop our progress.

In reality, allowing false pride to persist in your life only thwarts your own progress and hurts you. Pride of this sort leads to the creation of trapped emotions, because it does not allow you to let go and forgive; it does not allow you to access a higher path that leads toward peace. Instead, pride leads down the dark road of negative feelings, usually beginning with a feeling of resentment.

Anger will never disappear so long as thoughts of resentment are cherished in the mind. Anger will disappear just as soon as thoughts of resentment are forgotten.

- Buddha.

About Forgiveness

It is so important to realize that letting go of old hurt feelings helps you. You may think that you are justified 355

The Emotion Code

in holding on to hurt feelings because it punishes those that hurt you. In reality, holding on to negative emotions hurts you, not them. They may or may not be aware of how you feel, but the way they feel is entirely up to them. Just because you choose to suffer by holding onto the past doesn’t mean they will suffer along with you.

They may have truly done something horrible. It may seem impossible to let it go. This is where you have power to do something meaningful that can be life changing, especially for you.

You can decide to forgive them, thus freeing yourself of all of the negativity associated with the problem. I’ve always liked this quote by Lewis Smedes, “ To forgive is to set a prisoner free and then discover that the prisoner was you.” So why not set yourself free?

Why create more negativity and more damage by feeding your hurt feelings year after year?

Have a mind to let things go. Forgive. Problems happen so often out of ignorance.

So much human suffering is because we don’t know what we do to one another. If only we could understand that what we do to others, we do to ourselves.

If you’ve been mistreated, think of the example left for us by Jesus Christ, who said these words as he was being nailed to the cross, “Father, forgive them for they 356

Life Without Trapped Emotions

know not what they do.” In his extremity, he chose the emotion of love and forgiveness, and we can, too. A true-life example of the power of forgiveness made national news in 2005. Columnist Jay Evensen tells the story:

How would you feel toward a teenager who decided to toss a 20-pound frozen turkey from a speeding car headlong into the windshield of the car you

were driving? How would you feel after enduring

six hours of surgery using metal plates and other hardware to piece your face together, and after

learning you still face years of therapy before returning to normal—and that you ought to feel

lucky you didn’t die or suffer permanent brain


And how would you feel after learning that your

assailant and his buddies had the turkey in the first place because they had stolen a credit card and gone on a senseless shopping spree, just for kicks? . . . This is the kind of hideous crime that propels politicians to office on promises of getting tough on crime. It’s the kind of thing that prompts legislators to climb all over each other in a struggle to be the first to introduce a bill that would add enhanced penalties for the use of frozen fowl in the commission of a crime.

The New York Times quoted the district attorney

as saying this is the sort of crime for which victims 357

The Emotion Code

feel no punishment is harsh enough. ‘Death doesn’t even satisfy them,’ he said.

Which is what makes what really happened so

unusual. The victim, Victoria Ruvolo, a 44-yearold former manager of a collections agency, was more interested in salvaging the life of her 19year-old assailant, Ryan Cushing, than in exacting any sort of revenge. She pestered prosecutors for information about him, his life, how he was raised, etc. Then she insisted on offering him a plea deal. Cushing could serve six months in the county jail and be on probation for 5 years if he pleaded guilty to second-degree assault.

Had he been convicted of first-degree assault—the charge most fitting for the crime—he could have

served 25 years in prison, finally thrown back into society as a middle-aged man with no skills or


But this is only half the story. The rest of it, what happened the day this all played out in court, is the truly remarkable part.

According to an account in the New York Post,

Cushing carefully and tentatively made his way to where Ruvolo sat in the courtroom and tearfully

whispered an apology. ‘I’m so sorry for what I did to you.’

Ruvolo then stood, and the victim and her assailant embraced, weeping. She stroked his head and patted 358

Life Without Trapped Emotions

his back as he sobbed, and witnesses, including a Times reporter, heard her say, ‘It’s OK. I just want you to make your life the best it can be.’ According to accounts, hardened prosecutors, and even reporters, were choking back tears.2

About Charity

The ability to forgive others arises from our own ability to love. The purest form of love is unconditional love, also known as charity.

One of the most well-known scriptures from the New Testament is 1st Corinthians chapter 13, which reads in part:

1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Jay Evensen, “Forgiveness Has Power to Change Future,” Deseret Morning News, Aug 005, p. AA).


The Emotion Code

8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

How can forgiving others and having charity help you to avoid getting trapped emotions?

Charity is love, pure and simple. Unconditional love for our fellow-beings. I believe it’s really one of the most important reasons we are here on this earth; to learn to develop this kind of love.

When we feel this way toward others, our hearts resonate at the frequency of love, and we experience peace and harmony within.

This frequency doesn’t allow room for any of the dark feelings that could create trapped emotions.

Charity helps us to get out of ourselves, to get beyond our own self-centeredness. It helps us to be more interested and understanding of the needs of others. It leads us to sacrifice of our time, service, and worldly goods to give to another in need. It helps us to become givers and grateful receivers rather than takers. It creates a bond, a kinship, a brotherhood between us. It gives value to us as individuals, and gives us wholeness and a sense of belonging.

Charity, this pure love, is a gift from God, and emanates from the heart. Since it is a gift from God, we can ask Him for this gift, and we should.


Life Without Trapped Emotions

When our hearts are filled with charity, we are turned outward, not inward. We find joy in helping to create happiness for others. Our concern for the welfare of others becomes as great a concern as our own happiness. We therefore create our own happiness by making worthwhile contributions to others and to society. Our hearts enlarge in a spiritual sense, becoming more capable of giving and receiving love. Mother Teresa is universally admired for her service to mankind. She was asked how she could continue day after day, visiting the dying, feeding them, touching them, wiping their brows and comforting them.

She said, “It’s not hard, because in each one I see the face of Christ in one of His more distressing disguises.”

When our hearts are full of charity, we are much less likely to develop trapped emotions. We are forgiving, patient, and kind.

Our tendency is to overlook the faults and weaknesses of others, rather than to judge them. A life full of charity is worth striving for and worth living. It is a life of positivity, a life that is high above the sea of negative emotions below.

About Integrity

When we live congruently with what we know to be right and true, we have integrity. Integrity is a virtue, 361

The Emotion Code

an inner strength, an honesty with one’s self. Integrity drives people to be their best selves.

Generally, the more integrity we have, the less likely it is that we will develop trapped emotions because the soul is not divided, but is whole. There is no tearing of the heart, no conflict within.

When a person chooses to live in integrity, he is at peace with his own heart and mind.

When he continues on this path, integrity grows, confidence strengthens and positivity increases. A person living this way has little room for negative emotions that might become trapped.

Life, by its very nature, is uncomfortably challenging at times. We must meet those challenges by growing and going through change, so those with integrity are not exempt from trapped emotions entirely.

Personal growth requires stretching, adjusting, accommodating the needs of others, refining ourselves, taking risks, making difficult decisions, and doing more than we thought we could.

Adversity, opposition, and challenge certainly do give us the opportunity to grow. We can choose to resist and resent those challenges or welcome them as blessings, and feel gratitude for the growth they will bring to us. Sometimes the experiences that are the hardest to face, benefit us the most.


Life Without Trapped Emotions

When we go through times of opposition, we may

need to check ourselves for trapped emotions that might result, to stay free from their negative effects. The Refiner’s Fire of Life

Life is a learning and purifying process. There’s a story that illustrates this principle very well.

There was once a group of women studying the

book of Malachi in the Old Testament. As they

were studying chapter three, they came across verse three, which says: “He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver.” This verse puzzled the women, and they wondered what this statement meant

about the character and nature of God. One of

the women offered to find out about the process of refining silver and get back to the group at their next Bible study.

That week this woman called up a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him at work. She

didn’t mention anything about the reason for her interest beyond her curiosity about the process of refining silver. As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames were hottest as to burn away all the



The Emotion Code

The woman thought about God holding us in such

a hot spot – then she thought again about the verse, that he sits as a refiner and purifier of silver. She asked the silversmith if it was true that he had to sit there in front of the fire the whole time the silver was being refined.

The man answered “Yes”, and explained that he not only had to sit there holding the silver, but he had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire time it was in the fire. If the silver was left even a moment too long in the flames, it would be damaged.

The woman was silent for a moment. Then she

asked the silversmith, “How do you know when

the silver is fully refined?”

He smiled at her and answered, “Oh, that’s easy. When I see my image in it.”

If today you are feeling the heat of this world’s fire, just remember that God has His eyes on you.

- Unknown

If the trials of your life seem overwhelming to you, remember that God has a purpose for you and that you are loved.

God is refining you. He will know you are finished with this process when He can see his own image when he looks into your face; when you have become like him in your ability to give unconditional love.


Life Without Trapped Emotions

I believe that each of us has a destiny to fulfill, and a mission to perform while we are sojourning on this earth. Trapped emotions can contribute to illness and can prevent us from living the life we could be living. It is a sacred calling to help those who are suffering, not only because of themselves, but also because the ripple effects of their life, lived fully, can spread out through time and space to eternity. Some of the greatest satisfactions in my life have come from teaching people, bringing out the healer in them and practicing the healing art myself. As I do these things, I experience the joy that comes from empowering others and helping them to be well and happy.

About Prayer

When I was a young man, I had a profound spiritual experience, in which I learned that God is real. I know that He lives and that He loves us all. We are His spirit children, brothers and sisters in a quite literal sense. Prayer has been an essential key for me in understanding who we as human beings really are, how our bodies really function, how to correct problems and how to heal. It has been my custom to ask a silent prayer for guidance before attempting to help anyone who has come to me for help. Many times I have received understanding and inspiration that was beyond my own. I am grateful for this help, and I give the credit to God for it.


The Emotion Code

I strongly encourage you to ask God for help in all areas of your life, and especially in your attempts to help others. He will be there for you. You have only to believe and be grateful that He is helping you.

In case you are not sure how to pray, or what format you might follow, I will share with you what has worked for me.

I start by simply addressing God, usually by saying, “Heavenly Father”, as I believe He is my father.

I next thank Him for the opportunity I have to help the person I am trying to help.

Then, I ask Him for His help to do this, and for His insight and guidance.

Lastly, I close my prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. The word Amen simply means, “so be it.”

God bless you on your journey to getting well yourself. I hope that you will help many others along your way. I know that you can.

Life Without Trapped Emotions


About the Author

Dr. Bradley Nelson graduated with honors from Life Chiropractic College West, in San Lorenzo, California in 1988. He has lectured nationally on the natural healing of chronic illness, and was in private practice until 2004, treating patients from across the US and Canada who were suffering from Chronic Fatigue

Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and a wide variety of other chronic ailments. A holistic chiropractic physician and craniopath, Dr. Nelson is a specialist in the emerging fields of bioenergetic medicine and energy psychology. This is his first book.

Dr. Nelson is one of the nation’s foremost experts in magnetic healing, and has developed a simple yet powerful self-help method known as “The Body Code,”

of which “The Emotion Code” is a part.

With the creation of his “Balancing the Body Electric Seminar,” now “The Body Code Seminar,” Dr. Nelson has taught his healing methods to rave reviews. Widely renowned as a speaker and a gifted teacher, he is now making his teachings available online at, a membership site providing instructional videos, books and more.

Dr. Nelson is married and is the father of seven children. He lives with his family in Southern Utah. 369

Our goal is to provide the knowledge that will help empower people to become healers. We believe this is everyone’s birthright; to know how to help themselves and their loved ones to heal, that they might live up to their full potential.

Healers Library is being created for the express purpose of making powerful natural healing techniques and supplements available to everyone. Please visit us and see how easy it is to be a member of this online educational library where you can watch videos, purchase books, CDs, tools and supplements, ask

Nikken Magnets

Dr. Nelson highly recommends the use of Nikken

magnets in your healing work using The Emotion


Personally, I prefer to use the magnets manufactured by the Japanese company, Nikken, Inc., because

they are specifically designed for use on the body, and are very comfortable to use. The magnets that I use to release trapped emotions are designed to roll down the back, are easy to hold, and as they spin, they produce a larger magnetic field.

A lot of research has gone into their development, and I use them whenever I can. I have found numerous applications for them (for example, as

pain-erasers, where a refrigerator magnet would

not have the same effect). I believe that the Nikken magnets are well worth the modest investment


Many years of clinical research in Japan has gone into the design and creation of Nikken’s magnets, and they work very well.

The two specific magnets that Dr. Nelson recommends for practicing The Emotion Code are both made by Nikken. They are the MagBoy, a small, hand-held

magnet that can easily roll over the governing meridian, and the MagCreator, a larger, beautifully designed massage tool made with heavy-duty roller bearings, built to last. Either one of these is ideal.


Nikken is now the number one wellness company

in the world, with many high technology products from magnetic mattresses and air and water purifiers to cutting-edge sports and nutritional products that can create a true “Wellness Home” for you.

If you’d like more information on any of the Nikken products and how to purchase them, go to:
