When someone experiences a traumatic event or suffers through prolonged negativity, it is easy to understand why they may be on an emotional roller coaster. But what if you are struggling with an inexplicable sense of hopelessness or sadness, with no specific situation to identify as the trigger? Or, perhaps you feel as though you’re carrying emotional baggage that isn’t your own? If that is the case, you may be dealing with emotional inheritance.

What are Inherited Emotions?

You may feel that you are doing all of the right things: exercising, eating right, practicing mindfulness, and using energy healing work – yet the anxiousness and despair you feel will not leave. This might be because what you are feeling didn’t originate with you. It’s possiblethat you have inherited that emotion from one of your ancestors. If this is the case, the instigating factor or experience could go back many years, having become trapped generations earlier and passed down to you via inherited emotional energy. 

Trapped emotions have energetic resonance, and these energies can be passed down from generation to generation without our awareness. While we may not know they exist, they can still have a negative impact on our lives! We call these energies Inherited Trapped Emotions, and they can be addressed through the Emotion Code® and the Body Code™. It might sound “out there,” but there is actually science behind this phenomenon.

The Science of Emotional Inheritance

At Emory University, experiments conducted on mice found that a traumatic event can leave an imprint in the DNA of sperm, thereby affecting the behaviors of future generations. This emerging science is known as “transgenerational epigenetic inheritance” or epigenetics. It is becoming more apparent that these influences may create a chemical fingerprint on genetic material, and then be transferred to you by one or both biological parents.

By using the ideas and practices in The Emotion Code and Body Code, not only may you have the potential to release your current trapped emotions, but also the potential to release inherited emotions from past generations, alive or deceased.

Resolving Inherited Trapped Emotions with Energy Healing

Understanding emotional inheritance helps make it possible to more fully resolve a host of physical and emotional complaints. We are energy, and we believe that each emotion has its own energy and its own frequency. Our premise is that identifying and releasing inherited or trapped emotional energy can free and empower you to be your best, physically and emotionally.

The benefits of releasing inherited emotions may have the power to improve your life on many levels. Inherited emotions that cause constant feelings of anxiousness and negativity can lead to physical conditions such as:

  • Physical discomfort
  • Metabolic concerns
  • Eating and sleeping problems

By lightening our emotional load using the Emotion Code and the Body Code, you may enable your body to restore itself from these and other physical conditions.
