Dr. Bradley Nelson 2:58
Well, thank you.
Lisa Beres 2:59
So why do you say that some emotions are the underlying cause of most illness?
Dr. Bradley Nelson 3:07
Well, when I was in practice for many years, not far away from where you are, I worked with lots of people day in day out year after year. And what I found was that all of my patients, no matter what they were suffering from, whether it was a physical problem, whether they were dealing with infertility, or asthma or digestive disorders, or if they were dealing with physical pain, like migraine headaches, or neck pain, or back pain, or knee pain, or elbow pain, or if they were dealing with depression, or anxiety, or phobias, or panic attacks or PTSD or eating disorders, no matter what they were suffering from, they all had something in common that was actually causing their problem. It was a cause and the biggest cause that they all had in common was something that you'd never suspect but it was really their emotional baggage. And, you know, we use that phrase emotional baggage, usually when we're describing someone else, right? Never ourselves.
Lisa Beres 4:09
Somebody else. We're so buttoned up and we've..
Dr. Bradley Nelson 4:13
Emotional baggage. So what I found during the years I was in practice, I was able to figure out how to A identify that emotional baggage and B release that emotional baggage. It was amazing how well it worked. 80% of the time, people would come in with all kinds of different problems. just releasing their emotional baggage was enough to alleviate their symptoms. Wow. And I finally realized, wow, this is huge. This is unbelievable. This is monumental. This has to go out to the world. And so that's why I left my practice in 2004 and wrote this book, the Emotion Code that now looks like this.
Ron Beres 4:54
Dr. Bradley Nelson 4:55
Yeah, this is the hardcover version that came out a few years ago. But people needed to understand And how this works. And so you can use the Emotion Code book, you can learn how to find your own emotional baggage. And how this works really. It's really interesting. I was a computer programmer, I took a computer programming class in college at 1980. All right, I must be getting old.
Ron Beres 5:18
You look very young, by the way.
Lisa Beres 5:20
Right? Young and not stressed.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 5:24
Zoom is, you know, giving you a fake image of me, but But anyway, I took this class and became just absolutely head over heels in love with computers and programming. So I became a computer programmer. I had a business called the Computer Tutor back in the early 80s, when the IBM PC first came out, yeah. What happened was, I had been healed of kidney disease when I was 13 years old. And so at that age, I decided I want to go into the healing arts. It was some holistic doctors that had healed me. And I decided, this is what I want to do for a living, I want to do this with my life. I want to be a healer. And so but then I discovered computers, and kind of got really sidetracked. And it was really an answer to prayer that brought me back to that early dream of being a healer. So I went to chiropractic school. And one day, I'm sitting in class, to put myself through school by programming the admissions office computers at the college that I'm attending, right. So I was doing.
Ron Beres 6:21
You've got straight A's, of course, right after you're working on the computer, straight A's all across.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 6:25
I made sure I..No I never did anything cricket. But anyway, one day, I'm sitting in my neurology class, and my instructor is talking about the brain and how it's like a computer. And I still remember sitting there listening to him thinking, Wow, I wonder if maybe in 100 years, or two or 300 years, we'll have developed the technology to be able to actually tap into the computer that everyone has within them. Because wouldn't it be amazing, as a doctor, I could ask questions of that internal computer, and I could get answers from it. That would be such a game changer. Because the information inside of that computer inside each person must know what's really wrong with them. Right?
Ron Beres 7:08
Dr. Bradley Nelson 7:09
And so I thought, well, you know, maybe in two or 300 years, little did I know that that is exactly what I would be devoting the rest of my life to. And that's what the Emotion Code, and that's it The Body Code is really about.
Ron Beres 7:22
Dr. Bradley Nelson 7:23
It's about asking questions and getting answers. So let me explain this. I mean, if you're sitting at a computer, like I'm sitting at my laptop, it has an interface, right? That enables me to interact with it. What's the interface? Well, it's the screen right? Where I can see things. There's a keyboard, right? So I can type things in. If I look at my phone, right, I have an iPhone, there's a screen where I can see things and I can use my finger and I can touch buttons and I can interact. So that's the interface or it's called the touch screen interface. Well, the human body does not have a keyboard, and it doesn't have a screen. But it's a computer. How does it communicate with us? It communicates with us through symptoms that we have.
Ron Beres 8:07
Dr. Bradley Nelson 8:09
Yeah. It communicates with us through pain, through depression, anxiety, phobias, panic attack, self sabotage, PTSD, eating disorders. It communicates with us in other ways, too, for example, physical symptoms of not just pain, but also things like infertility and asthma, digestive disorders.
Lisa Beres 8:33
Would you say every illness every ailment?
Dr. Bradley Nelson 8:37
Now you're catching on? Every single illness is a communication from the subconscious mind from the computer telling us, hey, there's something wrong here. So in other words, all the symptoms that we experience in western medicine, the symptom is the problem. And so in western medicine, wow. You know, they're devoted to suppressing the symptom. Oh, you got migraine headaches? Well, you know what, let's see. Let's give you this drug that will make hair grow out of your tongue. But while you're taking it.
Lisa Beres 9:14
Yeah, right, exactly.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 9:16
And so that's how Western medicine is totally geared. But that's missing the boat, because the human body is a divine creation. And it will manifest symptoms of all kinds as a way to communicate with us. We've never known that until now. See? And so when you have some kind of a symptom, that should be the beginning of questions and answers a dialogue with that subconscious.
Lisa Beres 9:43
What's causing the symptom versus how do we treat the symptom? Yeah.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 9:47
And this is a paradigm shift that is now beginning to take place in the world. And it's going to change everything see, and it's time it's time for us to realize is what our bodies are capable of. They're not these dumb machines. See, the approach to the body is really rooted in the industrial revolution in the body as a machine that everything is a machine that the heart is a machine, all of the organs and the glands in the body. They're just machines. And they're not interrelated at all. And there's no intelligence there. Really, we're just like, lumbering robots, right? But the reality of it is, we're divine creations. And we were waking up to that now that the subconscious mind within each person is so vastly intelligent, and also within animals within infants, babies, subconscious mind that is more complex than we can even begin to imagine.
Ron Beres 10:51
How perfect is it that your background and computer coding and and also being a health practitioner, wow, perfectly in alignment, right?
Dr. Bradley Nelson 10:58
It had to be.
Ron Beres 11:00
I think you're the only one right? They got to this point. Your background is so diverse that way. It's it's it happened for a reason.
Lisa Beres 11:06
Like opposing energies too, though, I think of like, one, so yeah, right. And I let up on linear and one more spiritual and energy. All right. And so them coming together. Yeah, the left and the right brain. So how does energy healing work? And give our listeners some insight into what can they do? I know, people are listening that are struggling with so many things right now. I mean, let's be honest, the world is a very strange place right now. I mean, it's just strange. There's so much strangeness in my lifetime. This is the weirdest it's ever been. Oh, absolutely. Yeah, post pandemic, I mean, everything up until that point seemed to be kind of normal. Normal is had been like the world turned upside down since the pandemic. And so people are going through everything that we can imagine, right? And every kind of stress right now. Well, how does that energy healing? What can somebody? How can someone get started?
Dr. Bradley Nelson 12:00
Well, first of all, it's important to understand that you do have this intelligence within you that knows exactly with a perfect understanding what's really wrong with you. And if you're having any kind of symptoms at all, it knows why. And if you're not having symptoms, yet, your subconscious mind knows what symptoms you're going to have eventually and why. And so you can address those imbalances when we talk about preventive healing, preventive medicine, this is preventive medicine at its most pure, and simple, because the subconscious mind knows exactly what's happening. So let's do a little exercise here with your listeners. First of all, because most people, when we talk about the subconscious mind, it seems very abstract, right? We live in our conscious mind, we have our relationships, we work our jobs, we spend all of our waking hours in the conscious mind. And then when we go to sleep at night, the conscious mind shuts down. And what's left is the subconscious. And it's always running. It never sleeps really. And so that subconscious mind is always keeping track of things and creating millions of new cells every minute. And I mean, it's amazing what it does. But one of the things that we've learned is that all organisms will respond to positive or negative input. And so for example, if you put a drop of something toxic into an aquarium, the fish will sense that they'll swim away towards cleaner water. If you put a plant near a window, it'll grow towards the light. If you put a plant in a room with a speaker that's blaring, harsh, anoxic sounds, this plant will bend away from the sound coming out of the speaker. really wild. Yeah. So anyway, the human body is an organism that's very complex, and it will also respond to positive or negative input. So here's how this works. All right. I don't know if the two of you can do this. But your listeners can definitely do this.
Lisa Beres 13:52
We are going to do a muscle testing?
Dr. Bradley Nelson 13:54
Yeah, well, we'll do what we call the sway test. Okay. Here's how this works. Just like a plant bending towards the light coming in from the window. If you're holding thoughts of truth, or positivity, or congruency, and you're standing relaxed, with your arms down by your sides, your body within 3 to 10 seconds will start to sway forward. If you're holding thoughts of negativity, or falsehood, or incongruency, within three to 10 seconds, your body will start to sway backward. So here's how this works. Now, if you're driving, try this later.
Ron Beres 14:28
Right? For sure.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 14:29
But anyway, so what to do, stand up, take a deep breath. And if you're sitting on the edge of your chair, this also can work. It works a little better. I think if you're standing but sit right on the edge of your chair, you can also do this. So drop your hands down by your sides, close your eyes. Let's imagine that we're living 1000 years in the future. Close your eyes, drop your hands down by your sides, relax, and imagine that you're living in a place of unconditional love. And imagine not only that, but imagine that you've become a being of unconditional love and the unconditional love that fills your heart for all being in for all of creation can't even be contained by your heart. And imagine that love expanding out from your heart and going into every nook and cranny and the whole world, and expanding out beyond the Earth and going out and filling the whole universe. Imagine what it would be like to be that kind of a being. Now, as you contemplate that, and you think about what that would feel like, at the moment, your subconscious mind connects with what you're consciously thinking. In that moment, you'll start to sway forward. And I know a lot of your listeners right now are right on their tiptoes. Because that is a potential future, I believe for all of us, you see. So what you can do with this method of sway testing, is you can ask yourself questions you can ask, Do I have a trapped emotion that needs to be released? Hold that thought. And within three to 10 seconds, your body will tend to sway forward for Yes, or backward for No. So the simplest way.
Lisa Beres 15:56
You don't have to do a long meditation to get to that state, you can just ..
Dr. Bradley Nelson 15:57
Lisa Beres 16:02
10 seconds. Okay, so it's like the pendulum because we're aware of the dowsing and the pendulum. Yeah, okay.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 16:09
And that also works the same way. And so there are lots of different methods of muscle testing that you can use to and we teach all of those. These are the ways that we get information from the subconscious mind and we can ask any question that we want as long as the answer can be given back to the subconscious mind in the form of a yes or no? Which it would be a forward sway for Yes, backwards. Why for now, or strong muscle for yes, and a weaker muscle for now.
Ron Beres 16:35
On the positive one, I not only felt moving forward, I felt like my chest was opening up and I was raising now is that I was good. I look like I was flying on camera. Did you see it? Was it up? Really? Good a record that okay. No, that's great.
Lisa Beres 16:52
I've done muscle testing with different doctors along my journey, my health journey. And Ron and I were fans of Dr. Wayne Dyer. And he was very into, you know, doing the muscle testing with his son with his son was listening to I think rap at the time. And he was showing how the rap particular music, this music was negative negative lyrics and negative energy and you know, the muscle gets weaker, right? You when you put your arm out straight, like you're not able to hold the arm with something weak in it, right?
Dr. Bradley Nelson 17:20
Everything is energy. And your subconscious mind can detect energy like that. You can hold a bottle of supplements, for example. And you'll sway forward if it's good for you and sway backward if it's not, and so on.
Lisa Beres 17:32
Yeah, so getting in touch with our physical bodies and listening to those signs. So you say trauma is the root cause of most of the discomfort and illness people experience. And you kind of talked about what led you to that conclusion? How can someone determine if the physical symptoms are related to an emotional cause?
Dr. Bradley Nelson 17:51
When I was in practice, because I had been a computer programmer, I always had a computer there with me in my office. And as I was working on patients, and as I was finding imbalances, sometimes I would find new imbalances. Sometimes I would be guided to new things. Sometimes I would receive an answer to prayer about something that somebody had going on. And so I would catalogue all those imbalances. And what I found is that there are really six different categories of imbalances that we suffer from. And those are the things that actually cause all the symptoms that Western medicine is trying to, you know, basically put out those facts. Yeah, right. And so those are things like pathogens, like viruses, bacteria, fungal infections, mold, parasites, things like that. It's also things like nutritional deficiencies. If you don't have the right vitamins, minerals, things like that. Maybe you're deficient. Maybe you need a certain herb or an essential oil, things like that. Maybe you have some kind of a bone or some other tissue that's misaligned in the body. misalignments, I found are usually caused by other things, usually emotional baggage, and emotional imbalances and traumas and things energies that shouldn't be in the body, but that are there go into a category that we call energies. And this is actually this is actually all in the Body Code. And so in the Body Code book, we have this map, what kinds of imbalances, see, and then every one of those has a page number, so you can actually learn how to do this.
Ron Beres 19:22
So those are the six right, so I saw six categories there, can you tell us what the six are just off top? So 1,2,3 is okay.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 19:30
Pathogens. Another one is Circuits and Systems, the subconscious mind, the spirit really has to interface with the physical, and sometimes there's a breakdown there. And so that would be in the circuits and systems area along with all the organs and glands and the cardiovascular system and nervous system and so on. And then the last one is toxins. If your body's full of toxins, then you're not going to be as healthy as you can be. And so what I found and what's really amazing about this is that as I was building this database in my computer. And that's the only place that this database existed. I found as time went on, the subconscious minds of my patients knew somehow what was in my database. And I could ask questions, and I could ask, okay, is there a reason for this problem that you're having? And I would get a yes answer from their body.
Lisa Beres 19:30
Even if they weren't there?
Dr. Bradley Nelson 19:35
Well, yeah, even if they weren't there, if they were there or not, there wouldn't matter, they wouldn't have to see it, they wouldn't have to know it was in it. We get people that would come from other countries that didn't speak any English. And I found that I could talk to them in English, even though they couldn't understand me. But the answers would come back perfectly from their subconscious mind, because there's this communication going on. And so what we believe is that the subconscious mind of every person is immersed into this database of Universal Intelligence, of the quantum field, what Rupert Sheldrake called the morphic field, the database of all that is, and so everything exists in that database. And so we can ask questions and get answers. And we've certified almost 12,000 People in the Emotion Code around the world in eight countries.
Ron Beres 21:06
That's a large number. Wow.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 21:08
Yeah. And most of them work with other people in other countries.
Lisa Beres 21:11
Are these people already physicians that are kind of adding that to their practice? Or is this just anybody who wants to.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 21:18
Lisa Beres 21:19
Dr. Bradley Nelson 21:19
We have more and more doctors of all types, joining us hypnotherapist and psychotherapists, and medical doctors and nurses, especially since COVID. I mean, we have a lot more of them joining us all the time. But really, this work is about it's really the practical application of quantum physics. And so it's very different from what we're used to. It's not about drugs, it's not about surgery, although sometimes those can be totally appropriate, right. But most of the time, most people don't need a drug. And most of the time, most people don't need surgery. They just need to figure out what the imbalances are that are going on inside of them that are driving their health downward.
Ron Beres 21:57
Your practitioners are finding the symptoms to these problems, right. But I would also have them too, they're trying to help the patient maximize their conscious mind to control their subconscious, so they can be in an autopilot, a life that benefits them versus just living on the whim of the world, right. I've heard that's the challenges to your conscious mind, to control the subconscious more effectively. So you can live a more fruitful life, whether it's your health, your wealth, or whatever, it might be that correct.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 22:24
Well, yeah. So here's the thing, the conscious mind, if you could think of an iceberg floating out in the ocean, okay. The top of the iceberg, is what you might think of as the conscious mind. The vast bulk of that iceberg, right is below the waterline. But if you were to actually look at those in in a more accurate way, the conscious mind instead of being part of the iceberg that's above the waterline, that's a fairly large piece of ice, it'd be about the size of a peanut with a massive subconscious mind iceberg below the waterline. Yes, the subconscious mind is very interesting. Because if your subconscious mind wants to go west, you're going west, even though you might really want to go east consciously, right? Yeah. So a lot of what we do is find the blockages in the imbalances that are in the subconscious mind, that are making it oppose what you consciously want to do. When you can align the conscious with the subconscious, then that's when you really start to go where you want to go.
Lisa Beres 23:28
Right. So what illnesses would you say? Is there a few that you see over and over again, like more prevalent? What I would say, are the top five illnesses that are exacerbated by trapped emotions?
Dr. Bradley Nelson 23:42
Well, you know, the fascinating thing is, every disease process that I've seen in 35 years, has had emotional baggage is a component. Sometimes it's the only component. For example, I had a patient once they came in to see me, she's about 72 years old, I think. And the very first thing that showed up was that she had a trapped emotion. And the trapped emotion was sorrow or sadness, one of those two, and it and her subconscious mind said, we need to know more about this. I'm asking questions, getting yes-es and no-es. And so I trace this back 10-20-30-40 years, it went back to 1963. And I thought, hmm, maybe 63. Maybe this is about JFK. And so I said, you know, was about JFK assassination. And as I got a yes answer from her physical body, from her subconscious mind, at the same time, she's breaking down crying, and she's saying, oh my gosh, yes, that affected me so deeply. Then when his son JFK, Jr. Died in the plane crash that all I could do was cry for days, I couldn't work or do anything. And I thought, Okay, well, that's a great example of how a trapped emotion will cause you to feel that emotion in an enhanced way. And then I thought, you know, I wonder where this emotional energy is because it's trapped emotions, a ball of energy from about the size of a baseball, the size of a softball, and I wonder where this has been and so I asked, was this on the right side of the body? midline on the left that was on the left side and the left chest area. And all of a sudden when I arrived at that she and I just kind of looked at each other, like a couple of owls with big eyes, because for years before she did that breasts removed, see, oh, wow. And so cancer, there's always always an emotional component, every disease process we suffer from, if you think about it, you think about the people that you've heard of, you know, their spouse dies, maybe they've been married for 50 years or something. And then, you know, within a few months, or even less, or, you know, a year later, that other person is dead. We now know that people can die from a broken heart. The Japanese figure this out, they call it Takotsubo Syndrome, because a Takotsubo is a little bell shaped jar that the Japanese fishermen will put on the bottom of the ocean that provides a really nice home for an octopus. It'll climb in there, and then they bring it out, right, the heart will actually assume that shape. If you're actually dying of a broken heart. Look, it will look exactly like one of those jars. It's really amazing. So now even here in the US, the medical profession has been forced to admit that yes, people do die of a broken heart. Typically, you're more likely to have that happen if you're a woman 55 or older, and you just been through something that's really emotionally traumatic. One of the most famous stories about that was Doug Flutie, his mother, Doug Flutie played for Boston years ago back in, I think, in the 80s, famous football player, and his dad died. So he was in the hospital room with his dad. His dad has been dead for about an hour and he's there with his mother and they're grieving and crying and his mother bends over to give her husband a kiss on the forehead. And all of a sudden, she's gone. Slumps over dead. So he lost both his parents in the course of about an hour. But why did she die? Well, I think it was a classic case.
Lisa Beres 26:55
Yeah, animals too, right? I haven't they've studied that. And elephants. Elephants are very emotional. They've they've get very depressed if they're alone, right? I know. And these elephants sanctuaries in Africa, they have their caretaker and the caretaker will sleep with them on the ground because they're very social animals and they really need to be with especially the baby orphans who lost their parent. That's usually what we're dealing with.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 27:20
Yeah, that's really interesting. Horses too.
Lisa Beres 27:23
Horses. Yeah. So divine are such beautiful spiritual beings. Now, are you into EFT Emotional Freedom need the tapping as a way to release some of these blockages, or, I know you have your system. Okay, no, no
Dr. Bradley Nelson 27:38
Emotional freedom technique or EFT, the tapping system is fine. I remember that I was at an event once. So we did a seminar in Manhattan. And we had had an EFT instructor who came and her remark at the end of it was that the Emotion Code is like EFT at the speed of light. So I think EFT is great. And it's helped a lot of people. But this may be faster. And so if you're doing EFT, you might want to check this out.
Lisa Beres 28:00
Yours is a how many step process is your technique?
Dr. Bradley Nelson 28:04
Well, it's really simple. So let me give you an idea. Let's say for example, I happen to have a chart we're okay. Of the emotions. And they're six.
Lisa Beres 28:14
Yes, we're very into this. Yeah, yeah.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 28:17
It's divided up to columns, six rows, right. And so let's say that I'm working on one of you. And I want to ask, if you have a trapped emotion, we would just ask, Do you have a trapped emotion we can release? Maybe that's contributing to some kind of a symptom? If your subconscious mind answers yes, through muscle testing, or dowsing, or whatever, then the next question would be well, okay, is this emotion in column A or column B?
Ron Beres 28:41
So it doesn't matter how they're speaking, you're just looking for the symptom, right? So they can say, don't have anything, but you're picking up on us?
Dr. Bradley Nelson 28:47
Yeah, we're not looking for the symptom. What we're looking for is the actual emotion, we're just trying to identify the energy of the emotion. What am I.
Lisa Beres 28:54
I know what you mean? He mean, Ron means if they're saying no, but their body's saying yes, right. You're gonna over it. Yeah,
Dr. Bradley Nelson 28:59
Yeah, exactly. So we might ask, is this emotion in column A? If we get a yes answer, then we'd ask is the emotion in one of the odd rows in column A? And if it is, we'll ask is it in row one? Maybe that's a no row three, maybe that's a yes. So then, usually within about 15 seconds, you can zero in on a single cell in the chart. And then you can ask, Which one is it? Is it crying or discouragement or rejection, and one of those will be strong. If they're all weak. That's how we get guided to inherited emotional energies. And those that received a conception from mom or dad and those go back for many generations. But you can also find those and release those.
Generational trauma, right? Yes.
So once you're able to identify the emotion, then the next question in the Emotion Code is, do we need to know more about this? Because really, what we're trying to do is we're trying to close the loop on that little emotional experience. It's like an open loop and the grand in the body.
Ron Beres 29:57
Lisa Beres 29:57
How do we close a loop say The woman with the JFK trauma, how has that healed for her?
Dr. Bradley Nelson 30:04
Well, what happened with her was? I asked, Is that what this is about? JFK assassination? The answer was yes. And then I asked her, we didn't know anything else about this. And the answer was no. So in other words, we give the subconscious mind a chance to make us dig deeper if we need to. Usually, I mean, I would say probably 60% of the time, all you'll need to do is just identify the emotion that's on the chart, then sometimes you might need to figure out the subconscious. If you ask that question, do we need to know more about this? The subconscious mind, come back and say, Well, yeah, so then what you do is you figure out the year, well, how old were you? And 20- 30- 40? That's what happened with me. That's how I arrived at 1963. As I said, we need to know more. And your subconscious mind came back and it said, Yep, we didn't know more than that was all we needed to know that it was about Jeff Kay's assassination.
Lisa Beres 30:53
So there's no like, sending it love or healing energy or anything like that?
Dr. Bradley Nelson 30:57
What do to release the trapped emotion once you've identified it, and once you get the answer to that question, do we need to know more? Once the answer to that question is no. Then you can just take a magnet or your hand. And if you're working on yourself, you just swipe over the governing meridian like so.
Lisa Beres 31:13
Is this governing meridian.
Ron Beres 31:15
So we're swiping the third eye and got rolling, going overhead, right?
Dr. Bradley Nelson 31:18
Yeah, it's the third eyes right on this meridian. The Meridian starts in the tailbone, it's the governing meridian, it goes straight up the back over the top of the head to the inside of the upper lip. And we found that you can swipe any length of that meridian, have three times to release a trapped emotion. But you have to go through a little process to bring that emotion to a point where it's ready to be released. And once it's released, it's gone. And we've never ever seen one come back with inherited emotions, though. You do need to kind of figure out the genealogy a little bit. Oh, you got it from mom, your mom got it from her dad. It goes back 10 generations and it originated with a male grandfather. And did your kids get this? And you can clear from everybody in one shot. This is really only one energy. And that's quantum physics for you.
Lisa Beres 32:03
Yeah. Wow. We've had a couple of guests on this Exactly. Like, because energy in the quantum field is so fast, right? It's just right. It's instant. So it is pretty incredible.
Ron Beres 32:15
We sort of have a couple of more questions when I asked you before you go to but you coined the phrase, heart wall. Yeah. specific condition. Right. So what are heart walls? And why do you believe many people suffer from them? Without even realizing it? Yes.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 32:28
Well, this is such a great it's such an important topic. And it's all explained in the Emotion Code also in the Body Code as well. First of all, think about this back in the 1960s, when doctors first started doing heart transplants, it didn't take long before people would come back to the doctor to the clinic. And they would report strange things. They would talk about how their tastes and music or food or sports and radically changed, right. And sometimes they would have memories of being in places that they had never in their life or revisited. And when they were connected with the family of the heart donor, they would find out well, yeah, our son was a baseball player. And that must be why you love baseball now because his heart's beating inside of you
Ron Beres 33:08
Lisa Beres 33:09
And food too, right? They'd have like food cravings, and then never crave.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 33:13
Oh, yeah, yeah. I heard that efore but you know, the heart of the Chinese person or whatever. So yes, all of that. So interesting. Well, you know, our daughter, she'd love to visit Rome. She was her favorite city in the world and went there as often as she couldn't. Now you have memories of being in Rome, but you say you've never ever in your life ever visited there. Those must be her memories and weird. Yeah.
Lisa Beres 33:34
Dr. Bradley Nelson 33:37
Anyway, so the ancient peoples believed that the heart was the seat of the soul, and our source of love and creativity and romance in the core of our being. But you know, in the West, in this kind of post industrial kind of medicine that's been practiced for a long time. We look at the hardest is muscle, it's just a pump. That's all it is. And in fact, it wasn't even till the 1970s that they discovered that the heart had all kinds of gray matter and white matter in it just like the brain does. So we now know there's a little heart or sorry, a little brain in the heart.
Ron Beres 34:11
Well, where is it? Is it in the center? So I'm just I've never heard that before. So it's literally gray or white matter in the heart? And yes, brain of the heart?
Dr. Bradley Nelson 34:15
The little brain in the heart, they call it and so few. So now, yeah, as the brain that is in our heads, is really obeying the messages that are being sent by the brain in our hearts. And so there's this communication going on between the two. Well, what we found is that when you feel like your heart is going to break, if you're feeling really deeply grieved, by someone or something, you feel that physical sensation. Like there's an elephant sitting on your chest or like you can't breathe like you're choking you feel like your heart is going to break right. Have either one of you felt that in your life?
Ron Beres 35:01
I am sure. It's called being human. we're human too.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 35:07
It's a common thing. Well, if you feel that more than once or twice, see what's happening is your heart is really under assault. So the subconscious mind will put up a wall around your heart and that wall is made up of layers of your emotional baggage, layers of trapped emotions, grief from age 10, and, you know, sadness from your divorce and sorrow and frustration and humiliation when you were bullied as a child. All of those things can create this big wall of energy around your heart is like a force field. Okay? So we call it a heart wall. Now, when that wall is there, it makes it much more difficult for you to find love to feel love to connect with other people. It makes it more difficult for you to really manifest the perfect blueprint of what your life can be, which lies within your heart, I believe. Let me tell you a story really quick. There was one of my favorite stories about this happened to me. Not long after this was really something that was shown to us. I go into detail on the book, but I'm talking now, a woman came in to see me not long after this was shown to us this heart wall thing. As I was talking with her, she told me that she was 38 years old. She was a nurse. And she hadn't dated in eight years. She was single, she was never going to date ever again. She was going to die single and I had never met anybody that was really celibate like that, except for an occasional Catholic priest. And so I said, Well, why do you feel that way? What happened? She said that eight years before, she was really deeply in love with this guy who dumped her and broke her heart. And so I tested her and found and by the way, she came in to see me for neck pain or neck pain was about a nine on a zero to 10 scale. She'd seen a couple of other doctors for it, and they hadn't been able to help her. So I tested her and found she had this wall. Of course, the subconscious mind knows about this. So I just asked questions and got the answers. And there were three emotions, three trapped emotions, three layers of emotional energy wrapped around your heart. So I released those 1-2-3 released them all, when the last one was gone. They all had to do with their breakup from eight years before, by the way, when it cleared the last one. All of a sudden the neck pain was completely gone. Right? It was a nine now it's a zero. She was super excited. She left the office feeling totally fine. Three months later, she comes back in I hadn't seen her for three months. And I'll always remember this. I saw in my hallway and I said, Hey, I remembered her immediately. Because of her situation. I said, How are you doing what's going on? She said, You know, my neck has been fine since I was here. But she said, You cleared that heart wall for me. And that really works. She said about two weeks after I was here. I found out my childhood sweetheart has been living right around the corner. Wow. For almost eight years. We're dating ah, and we're in love. He's gonna ask me to marry him. And I thought well, what a shift?
Lisa Beres 37:53
That's a quick, shift. That's a power. Right? Yeah. Dr. Brad, when they say oh, you know, oh, I'm dating this person. But they have walls that are signs. So I met someone but they have wall you're going to break their walls? You know. So that is interesting.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 38:06
That's what this is. What is what this is and you know, 93% of people, we estimate from the work that we've done, are walking around with a wall around their heart.
Lisa Beres 38:17
Yeah. I can't imagine anyone isn't just because like you said, you know, who didn't go through even if you weren't bullied as a child, everybody teases each other, right? That could create, like, you know, people start to kind of harden and well, I'm not going to be vulnerable. Brene Brown, do you know her work about vulnerability? Yes.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 38:36
And so it is so so common. You know, 7% of people don't, they haven't put one up. But the vast majority of people do. And when that wall is taken down, it's not unusual for people to fall in love. Not unusual for creative ideas to start to really flow spontaneously, because the best ideas you'll ever have are not going to come from the brain in your head are going to come from the brain in your heart. And it's really interesting. One of our practitioners told me that her sister called her one day, and her sister had been divorced for nine years. And she called her up one day, she'd never let this sister who was one of our practitioners ever worked on her before. But she said, she said look, I'm tired of being alone have been divorced for seven years, coming to work on me and see if you can help me. So she went over, worked out and spent the weekend together cleared her Hartwall. And neither one of them told anybody what they were doing. And then on Monday, the phone started to ring and who was calling? Well, it was these guys that had known her from years before see. And now all of a sudden that energy is going out. Think about this nurse that I worked on. Why hadn't she ever run into her old boyfriend who lived right around the corner for almost eight years? Well, she wasn't open to it. She was totally closed off. And so nothing ever happened. Right cosmic thing. It's really kind of a miracle.
Lisa Beres 39:53
It's reminding me and we've talked about it on the show many times the doctor Marisol Emoto, who did the water tests water crystals. Yes. Right, just by the words and the energy. And I saw a tick talker, actually recently where she took rice and did the exact same thing with rice, you know, different jars of rice on different sides of the kitchen one talking negatively, putting negative words on the jars and the other one positively in the negative rice turned black and the exact same time the other rice state white. So right, it's like pretty shocking that up. Yeah, the power. Yeah, right. The power of our energy, our words, our vibration, right, or, as you say, our subconscious. So what are some compelling findings that are coming out about the connections between emotions and health? Okay, so you said the six things, could you have somebody who's sick? Who has just one of those six, like maybe it's just parasites say, but they don't have emotional issues? Or do you think they're usually all off balance?
Dr. Bradley Nelson 40:55
Well, what I found during the years that I was in practice is that all my patients had emotional baggage, okay. And about 80% of the time, just releasing their emotional baggage would do away with whatever symptoms they were dealing with. And of course, it depends, you know, the more imbalances you have, typically, in those six different areas, the more difficult your condition may become, or the more serious it might become, and the more imbalanced you are, and the longer those imbalances have been happening, the more they can kind of combine to eventually create something that might be life threatening, like cancer. And you know, the Emotion Code and The Body Code, they're not methods of treating cancer, treating any kind of a disease at all. All they are, it's just a way to find the ways that we're out of balance, and bring our bodies back into balance, because our bodies know how to heal themselves. But sometimes there are things in the way of that. And the number one most common thing in the way is emotional baggage.
Lisa Beres 41:57
It's very interesting. Yeah, we talk so much on this podcast about toxicity and toxins and mold and fungus and parasites and chemicals and heavy metals, and you name it, but not the emotional part that much. So this is a really important, absolutely key to unlocking a lot of that.
Ron Beres 42:15
I'm curious, you touched on this a little bit earlier. But what are some simple steps people can take to address the root causes? So they can live healthier, happier lives?
Dr. Bradley Nelson 42:24
Well, you know, it's time for us to wake up and realize that we're divine beings, and that we each have all of the answers within us. Now we can tap into those answers. And we can actually do this ourselves. And so for example, with The Body Code Book, you can learn how to do this yourself, you can work you can become your own doctor, in a sense, not that there won't always be a need for doctors. But the thing is, most of the time, most people don't need some kind of a petrochemical, pharmaceutical drug or surgery. Most people just need to find those imbalances. And we now have a way to do that. So the Emotion Code is.
Ron Beres 43:01
You're preaching to the choir. Dr. Brad you are right.
Dr. Bradley Nelson 43:04
Exactly. Okay, well, anyway. Yeah. So the first thing I think, is to realize that, that the answer is all lie within you. And you can learn how to get those answers yourself. Or you can have someone else work with you. Like I said, we've been surrounded by 1000s of people all over the world. You can go to discover healing, that's our website, discoverhealing.com.
