The Emotion Code™ Chart: A How-To Guide
Harboring trapped emotions within your body can greatly affect your overall physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. However, thanks to Dr. Bradley Nelson’s work and publications in the field of energy healing and muscle testing, you can discover just how beneficial it can be to easily release trapped emotions with the help of the Emotion Code™ Chart.

How Does Releasing Trapped Emotions Work?
Generally speaking, releasing Trapped Emotions is a four-step muscle testing process that’s designed to prepare yourself, or the person you’re working with, to determine if an emotion is trapped, determine which emotion it is, and then release the identified emotion.

Using the Emotion Code™ Chart
At first glance, the Emotion ™ Chart may look complex, but by spending just a few minutes understanding how it works, you’ll find that this chart is a key component in determining and releasing trapped emotions. After verifying with yourself or your test subject that you are ready to either test or be muscle tested, it’s time to start asking questions in order to dial in on a trapped emotion.

The Emotion Code™ Chart consists of 60 emotions, divided into two columns and six rows. Start by asking yourself or your subject, “Is this trapped emotion in Column A?” Perform the muscle test and, if the muscle being tested weakens, the answer is “No.” In that case, ask if the trapped emotion is in Column B. In the event you receive a double positive or a double negative, you’ll need to take a breath, reset, and repeat the questions until you get a definitive answer. Notice that once you have determined which column the trapped emotion is in, you will have cut the list in half!

Once you know which column the trapped emotion is in, determining the specific row will help you further pinpoint this particular piece of emotional baggage. Notice that each column consists of six rows. The fastest way to find the trapped emotion is to ask, “Is this trapped emotion in one of the odd rows?” If the answer to this question is “Yes,” you have narrowed the list down to the 15 emotions in the odd rows in this column, and if the answer is “No,” you will have narrowed the list to the 15 emotions in the even rows in this column. I think you have the idea. If you’ve discovered that the trapped emotion is in one of the odd rows in this particular column, the next question would be, “Is this trapped emotion in row one?” Follow this method until you receive a clear answer of which column and row the trapped emotion is in.

For example, if your body responds positively to Column A, Row 3, you will have narrowed your search to just five emotions: crying, discouragement, rejection, sadness or sorrow. At this point, you will need to test the emotions one by one, asking, “Is the trapped emotion crying?” followed by a muscle test. Keep in mind that you’re only looking for one emotion on the list at any given time. One of these emotions will test stronger than the others, indicating the trapped emotion that you’re looking for. If all of the emotions test weak, you have uncovered an “inherited” trapped emotion, or an emotion that was passed to you from your biological mother or father.
