It’s easy to understand the importance of taking care of our physical body, since we see it, feel it, and move through the world in it! It’s also how we are introduced to others, as the first thing the people we meet see. Because of this, it’s common to spend a lot more time thinking about our external selves, rather than our internal selves. This mindset tends to affect our approach to healing as well, with the physical body being treated far more frequently than the emotional self.

Our premise, however, is that many physical issues are actually caused by emotional pain at their roots, and cannot be healed with only physical treatments! Emotions can become trapped in the body and cause physical discomfort. Discovering these Trapped Emotions and releasing them can result in lasting emotional and physical healing.

Alleviating Discomfort Through Emotional Healing

When our bodies are only treated physically, through pills, massage, or surgery, discomfort may return. While sometimes illness and physical injuries need to be treated with these types of traditional medicine, we believe there can be underlying causes of discomfort that indicate a need for emotional healing. Often, if the issue is rooted in an emotion, the aching will grow slowly over time. It might be hard to point to the reason for the discomfort — as opposed to when you take a fall or break a bone. When physical issues are rooted in a Trapped Emotion it cannot be healed by external treatments. In this case, emotional healing from the inside out may be more effective in alleviating it.

Healing From The Inside Out

Healing from the inside means confronting ourselves, our histories, and our inner truths. This isn’t always the easiest thing to do! In modern society, we often learn to avoid things that are hard or hurtful. It might seem simpler to take a  pill instead. Alternatively, we may temporarily distract ourselves from uncomfortable experiences with diversions such as TV, social media, alcohol, and more. However, avoiding the real issue will only allow the discomfort to come back in the future. Even though it might seem more challenging, in the end, emotional healing may be what’s necessary to make a lasting change and improvement.

For deeper healing, we should look inside, as well asto external sources. Holistic healing modalities tend to focus on this internal approach, altering lifestyle and balancing energies. The Emotion Code® and The Body Code™ are designed to help identify energetic blockages that are preventing you from living your best life and removing them to enable your body, mind, and spirit to heal itself.
