Okay, this one is going to sound a bit weird, and “out there…” I thought so too, at first, but being the open-minded person that I am…
I can’t remember how I was introduced to this, but got the book (the Emotion Code by Dr. Bradley Nelson) out of the library and gave it a whirl. It is really quite fascinating.
The Emotion Code is a system of tapping into your inner subconscious as a tool to eliminate unseen baggage that may be negatively affecting you physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Basically, your body or subconscious knows things about yourself that you don’t know or don’t remember. As you apply this method of “asking” your body questions and recognizing the answers, you can then take it to the next step of ridding yourself of negative memories or scars that you’ve been unconsciously holding onto and which are holding you back and could be the cause of physical pain and disorders as well.
I’m not one with a lot of “baggage” but I did find it enlightening and interesting, as I had seen something along these same lines taught and applied with the use of essential oils. In that application, one “asks” one’s body which oils it needs for a particular situation.
The book explains the science (yes! science!) behind the process and it makes sense, at least to me.
Total Investment: Borrowed the book from the library, spent about $2.00 making copies of the pages I wanted to keep; spent about $15.00 on magnets; already had a utensil that was applicable to use with the magnets. (have I intrigued you enough to investigate?)
Do I still use it? On occasion I have done an “internal check-up” to get in touch with my body and do still find it useful.
A few days after I wrote this post, I got a text coupon that my Prima Plants supplements (See A is for Apple) were on sale for 48 hours ending today but I was way over budget on my credit card and I didn’t feel like I could order them. They are pretty spendy so to get them at 60% off was amazing. I’d only been on it for about 3 weeks and I wasn’t sure if they were doing what they were supposed to do for the price I had to pay, so…I decided to ask…my body. I invoked the Emotion Code and got a surprising result. “No, they are not really helping my body.” What? Are you sure? I asked 4 times varying the question and got the same response each time. “Not worth it.” Also not the answer I was expecting or necessarily wanting, as I wanted them to work. Well, saving us some money this way, but I must listen to my body! It’s back to basics of homemade Greek yogurt for my probiotic and lots of kale, spinach and other “real” greens.
