In July 2012, my sister Laurie was visiting one weekend and wanted to release some trapped emotions. I asked if she had any physical issues that we could work on and she said she experienced a sharp pain in the ball of her left foot about four times a week. She rated the pain an “eight” and said that when it occurred she would have to stop what she was doing and focus on breathing through it. We then proceeded to release one trapped emotion that day because that was all her subconscious would allow. The next day we decided to see if anything else could be released and she said, “By the way, last night in bed I was awakened by the foot pain, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as it has been before.” We then released four more trapped emotions.

A week later, I received a text from Laurie saying that she had not experienced the foot pain at all that week! That same day I was talking on the phone with my mom. She said that Laurie mentioned that we released some trapped emotions. I said that we did and told her about the pain that Laurie had in her left foot and that she just texted that it was gone. My mom said, “That’s funny, I experience a pain in the ball of my left foot a few times a week – I didn’t know that Laurie did too.” I asked my mom when she last remembered experiencing the pain and she said it was last weekend, which was the weekend of my sister’s session. I told my mom to hang on while I got my notes and sure enough, the one emotion my sister released that first day was “Pride inherited from mom.”

This was almost four years ago and when I checked in with my mom and sister to get permission to tell this story, they both confirmed that they are still pain-free!
