What is the Emotion Code technique? To put it simply, it’s a series of processes designed to release emotional blockage. Come, let’s find out.
The process is designed to take energy that’s stuck in our bodies and move it out. This releases resistance and allows healing to begin.
Because this technique works on the level of energetic frequency, it can be used anywhere in the world by anyone.
This is great news for those who have trouble making time for appointments with their local practitioner but that desire to make a difference in their lives and be able to discover more of who they are meant to be!
1 – Emotion Code Chart
The Emotion Code Chart is a tool that will help you discover the trapped emotions your body carries.
- By running your finger along the outer edge of a muscle on your body, you can detect any energetic disturbances that are preventing it from working at its best. This method of energy testing is called “muscle testing.”
- The Emotion Code Chart helps us to interpret the results we obtain through muscle testing by identifying underlying negative emotional energies that may be causing our physical problems.
This chart lists common negative emotional energies, identified by their symptoms and adverse effects. We call these negative emotional energies “trapped emotions.”
Rage; Anger; Hostility; Irritation; Frustration
Anger is an unpleasant emotion that can range from mild irritation to intense rage. It’s often associated with feelings of annoyance, resentment and hostility.
Anger can be caused by internal factors (such as frustrations or jealousy) or external factors (such as a conversation, event or situation).
A person usually experiences anger for a reason. In some cases, the cause of anger is apparent and easy to identify; in other cases, it isn’t so obvious.
Uncontrolled anger can lead to problems, such as poor decision making, increased stress levels and even violence. For example: Anger can sometimes lead to violent behavior such as yelling at someone or even hitting them physically.
7 – Acceptable Emotions
The list of emotions that are acceptable to experience is below, but it is not all-encompassing.
These are just the main categories. And what’s the purpose of this list? To let you know that these emotions are not a problem when you experience them, and they may mean that you’re even doing something right!
They’re good emotions to be having!
Now that you have your chart, look at it every day. Your goal is to ask yourself how you feel on a regular basis – at least once a day – and look at your chart for guidance.
Which emotion do I feel today? This will help point out which energy is in your body and may give you some insight as to what’s going on with you.
Joy; elation; Bliss
Emotions are a common experience, and yet they can be difficult to define. We often think of emotions as feelings, but that’s not quite right; emotions are also thoughts, sensations, and behaviors.
At the core of an emotion is an involuntary neurotransmitter release that affects our whole being.
We tend to consider some emotions good and others bad: excitement is good, pain is bad; anger is bad, joy is good. In reality, though, there are no inherently “good” or “bad” emotions – all of them serve a purpose in the human experience.
Emotions exist to inform us about our environment and guide our behavior. For example: when you’re angry about your car being stolen from the parking lot at work, it might motivate you to enlist others in searching for it.
Or when you’re overjoyed at receiving an award from your boss for a job well done on a project, it tells you that your efforts were appreciated by those around you–and that encourages you to keep up the hard work in the future!
While we ultimately can’t control how we feel all the time (some things just happen), we can learn more about what causes these feelings so that we can better understand ourselves – and make informed decisions based on what we discover!
5 – Sorrow; Grief
Sorrow is a deep and poignant emotional pain in response to misfortune or loss. It may be understood as a combination of sadness and disappointment, though it is more intense than either of these feelings.
Sorrow is less violent than grief. Grief is indeed a natural reaction to change or loss. It’s the process of accepting that a significant person, place, or thing no longer exists as it was known before, and involves intense emotions such as shock, anger, guilt and depression.
Some of the physical sensations associated with Heart-Wall Trapped Emotional Energy include:
A feeling that you are drowning
Feeling as a dark cloud is hovering over you
Feeling like you are in a bottomless pit where there’s no hope for happiness or fulfillment
8 – Lack of Emotion
The opposite of passion is apathy, which is a lack of emotion or motivation. When you are apathetic, you are indifferent or unenthusiastic.
This can be toward anything – a specific person or event, a situation, a career path, etc. To break this tied-down feeling, try the following steps:
- Begin by recounting what your passions were as a child. What did you like to do? How did those activities make you feel?
- When last time did you feel passionate about something? What made that experience different from your current state of apathy?
- Find ways to reignite your interest in new things. In what ways could you change up your routine to engage with something that piques your curiosity?
Examples of the apathy emotion: You feel like you’re just not interested in anything. You don’t feel like going out.
Maybe you even lack interest in things that you’ve always enjoyed, such as hobbies or activities. Sometimes when people are feeling this emotion, they also feel powerlessness.
The powerlessness emotion is more complex than apathy; it can involve feeling overwhelmed, disinterested, disconnected, indifferent, out of control and disempowered.
2 – Trapped Emotions
To find the trapped emotions, you use the Emotion Code chart. The Emotion Code chart has a list of hundreds of potential trapped emotions.
It includes physical symptoms, like aches and pains, as well as emotional symptoms such as depression or anxiety.
You can use this Emotion Code chart to find everything you need to know about each emotion listed on it.
- “If you are feeling sad most of the time and you do not know why, that might be a grief or loneliness or a despair inside your body.”
- “If you feel nervous all the time, those could be fear or terror.”
- “If you’re feeling hurt at your shoulder, and the doctor does not actually know the cause and remedy, there might be an anger in your shoulder still,” as he says.
Many people have a misconception about pride. They think that all pride is bad. However, that’s not true. There are actually two different types of pride: ego and virtuous.
An example of ego-based pride is arrogance or high self-esteem. This type of pride is negative because it makes us feel superior over others. In some cases, this can lead to discrimination against other people, which can cause many negative emotions.
On the other hand, virtuous pride is a positive emotion and it comes from feeling satisfied with ourselves and our accomplishments.
An example would be when we graduate from school or get a promotion at work – we might feel happy and proud of ourselves for achieving these things!
This type of pride will help us continue striving towards new goals in life because it motivates us to keep doing what we’re doing (or even better).
9 – Chart
The top of the Emotion Code chart is the emotions you want to avoid, and the bottom is the emotions that are healthy to feel.
For example, if you’re emotionally attached to an event in your past (for instance, having fallen and broken your arm at a friend’s birthday party), then you might feel sad when you think about that friend’s party, despite it being a happy occasion for everyone else.
If this were true for someone who had just broken their arm, he or she would be carrying around emotional trauma from that event (“the broken arm”), which could manifest in other areas of his or her life (such as a fear of falling down).
This Emotion Code is a very powerful and highly simple way to rid yourself of the unseen baggage. Emotional baggage occurs when your energy field has imbalances caused by, and resulting in, harmful emotional energies from either traumatic experiences or negative thoughts.
“Fear has been trapped in the body as a pain, a tension, or stress,” explained by Dr. Nelson. “…this can be easily released with The Emotion Code method…”
Anxiety is another common emotion that can be difficult to overcome; one that many people wish they could free themselves from, whether it be social anxiety, separation anxiety or any other type of this disorder.
Anxiety causes feelings of uneasiness or worry in various situations and often results in physical sensations as well like sweating and racing heartbeats.
It may seem hopeless at times but there are ways you can overcome your anxiety – not just manage it – such as identifying its cause and symptoms, learning relaxation techniques and making positive lifestyle changes.
4 – Guilt
Guilt is a common emotional response to feeling like you’ve done something that goes against your personal moral code. You may feel guilty when you lie, break a promise, or hurt someone’s feelings.
There are many ways to overcome guilt, but one simple way is to truly accept how you feel. This can be difficult because you may have learned that guilt isn’t a “positive” emotion and should be suppressed.
However, like all emotions, it has an important purpose in your life. The first step toward overcoming guilt is acknowledging its presence and then asking yourself why you feel this way.
In order to distinguish true guilt from other emotions, ask yourself some questions:
- When do I feel the most guilty? What situations trigger these feelings?
- Am I blaming myself for something outside of my control? Who else might be responsible or involved in the situation?
- Can I meet my own expectations right now? If not, what steps can I take toward meeting them later on?
Guilt; Remorse; Regret; Shame, Self-Disgust, Embarrassment
These emotions are ones we definitely do not want to have. They block us from feeling good, and they keep us from living our best life.
Guilt, remorse and regret are also very bad for our health because we literally hold them in place with our energy fields. It’s much better to release them as soon as possible.

Emotion Code Chart
You may have noticed that the emotions on the Emotion Code chart above are listed in order of intensity. For example, love is at the top. That’s because love is considered to be the most powerful and positive of all human emotions.
But if love doesn’t work out, you might slip down a few rows to joy or happiness. From there it’s a slippery slope to fear, which includes dread and terror, before bottoming out at grief, apathy and powerlessness.
On this emotional rollercoaster ride you’ll find some other familiar feelings including anger and jealousy along with some more obscure ones like guilt, shame and sorrow.
So what do we want to avoid? The bottom row of emotions including: Grief; Apathy; Powerlessness; Burden; Suicide; Worthlessness; Shame.
What do we want to encourage? The top row of emotions including: Love; Joy and happiness; Peacefulness and contentment.
What’s difficult to achieve? The middle row of emotions including: Fear (includes dread and terror); Anger (includes rage); Jealousy (includes envy).
