Definitions

After each session, I will send you a detailed report of the work that was done. Here is a list of terms you may see on your report, and an explanation for each.

Addictive Heart Energy (AHE)-an energy given off by the heart in its desperation to feel love, happiness, etc. It attracts negativity and can be a factor in addictions. It only occurs when there has been a heart wall present, and needs to be released separately from it.

Allergy or Intolerance – trapped energies can cause or contribute to hypersensitivity to physical substances, such as pollen, pet dander or foods, and even to thoughts and ideas.

Chakras-from the Hindu tradition, chakras are centers of energy that emanate from the spine and direct the flow of energy through the body.

Cording-an energetic connection between two people. When one person drains energy from the other, or otherwise keeps an inappropriate attachment to them, the cord is unhealthy and needs to be removed.

Curses-a energy that has been placed into a person’s energy field by another person with negative, though often unconscious intention.

Despair Anchor– a negative, limiting belief which is perceived as true by the subconscious mind, and which the subconscious continually seeks to prove and demonstrate to be true.

Disconnection-a break in the energetic connection between either two parts of the body (physical-to-physical), the body and energy body (spirit-to-physical), or a tear in the aura (spirit-to-spirit).

Emotional Resonance (ER)-sometimes, rather than causing a trapped emotion, a traumatic event will cause an energetic vibration to resonate throughout the entire body- the way a bell will still vibrate long after the ringing sound is no longer audible.

Heart Wall (HW)-a wall of energy that the subconscious mind constructs around the heart as a protective measure after experiencing deep hurt, grief, loss or heartache. It is made up of layers of trapped emotions which can be added to over time. Although it can be beneficial to have this protection at first, ultimately it blocks the heart from giving and receiving love and stifles the person’s creative potential in all areas of life, and causes them to attract negativity. Clearing the Heart Wall can have far-reaching positive results.

Inflammation Energy-an energy that is trapped in the body tissues where there has been an injury, infection or other cause of inflammation. It can cause the tissues to remain inflamed longer than they should.

Kinesiology– testing various muscles as a connection to the subconscious mind. Can be done directly or by proxy.

Magnetic Field Distortion– an imbalance in the body’s magnetic field. The Japanese term it as Magnetic Field Deficiency Syndrome (MFDS). Caused by a lack of connection with the Earth’s magnetic field which TE’s, etc. often cause or contribute to.

Memory Field Imbalance – The energy of memories stored in the energy field, “in front” of a person, keeping these memories in the present instead of the past. This can occur when memories are traumatic or often recalled (ruminated upon). It makes it difficult to move ahead in life until moved “behind” the person, or released.

Meridian System-from Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is the means by which the energy, or chi flows through the body, similar to the way the circulatory system transports blood.

Miasm-from the field of Homeopathy, it is an inherited  distortion in the energy field caused by the suppression of a disease experienced by an ancestor.

Misalignment-the imbalance of a tissue, anywhere in the body. Can cause pain and malfunction in an organ, gland, etc.

Physical Trauma-an energy that becomes trapped after either a physical event, like a car accident or fall, or from a traumatic emotional event which is experienced strongly in the body (like a “punch to the gut”).

Psychic Trauma-when two emotions are experienced simultaneously and become trapped at the same time in one ball of energy.

Proxy Session-someone who has been given permission to act in place of another person is referred to as their proxy.  When you give me permission to do so, I will act as your proxy for the session, energetically connecting to your energy field and testing myself as if I were you. Then I clear or balance whatever you test as needing addressed. It works just as effectively as if we were together and I was working on you directly. Energy is not subject to the physical constraints of time and distance.

Reiki is a Japanese healing system in which life force energy is channeled into the client’s energy field to activate the natural healing processes of the client’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being. There are several different but related types of Reiki.

Saboteur-energy “weapons” placed into a person’s energy field by someone else, or even  themselves. Usually placed subconsciously as a manifestation of negative feelings, and it is usually symbolic in type and location (“a knife in the back”).

Six Pernicious Influences-from Traditional Chinese Medicine, imbalances in the energy system causing disruption in normal function and cause disease. They are:  1) Cold- an excess yin energy, depleting the body’s energy. 2) Heat- can be externally sourced, like spending too much time outside in very hot weather, or internally sourced, from pathogens, and cause overactive yang functions. 3) Dampness- a congestion and slowing of the energy flow, also can be internally or externally sourced. 4) Dryness- often accompanies Heat, the lack of moisture causes disharmony in the flow of energy. 5) Summer Heat- a damp heat, always externally sourced and causes the energy flow to become slow and lethargic. 6) Wind- an excess yang energy, there can be wind cold, heat or dampness, and is considered the major cause of illness in TCM.

Trapped Emotion (TE)-the energy of an intensely felt emotion can become lodged in your energy field as a ball of energy. It causes imbalance in the energy field, and can result in physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, relational and financial issues. Trapped Emotions can be inherited, or even absorbed from other people. In the case of inherited trapped emotions (ITE’s),  I will identify which ancestor you inherited it from, and release it from everyone in your lineage, including your children and grandchildren. Below, I have provided a list of emotions and definitions, as used in The Emotion Code/Body Code.

Definitions of Emotions by Dr. Bradley Nelson

The list of emotions that follows encompasses the range of human emotions which may become trapped. There are many more potentially problematic emotions in the dictionary besides the ones listed here, but a simplified list is used to keep things easy and quick. Every negative emotion that can be experienced will fall under an emotion listed below (e.g. Embarrassment would fall under Humiliation, Bewildered would fall under Confusion, etc.)

Abandonment: Physical abandonment is being left alone; left behind or deserted (this is the type of abandonment that we most often see in childhood). Emotional abandonment is being given up on; withdrew from; emotionally deserted or separated from; a feeling of being “left behind” in a non-physical form.

Betrayal: Betrayed is to have your trust broken, to be deserted or hurt by a trusted one. Betrayal of another is to be unfaithful in guarding or fulfilling a trust; to be disloyal or violate a confidence, to desert someone who trusts you. Betrayal of the self is to break integrity; act against oneʼs morals, to abuse the body or soul.

Bitterness: A harsh, disagreeable or cynical attitude. Being angry or resentful because of hurtful or unfair experiences.

Blaming: Being Blamed is to be held responsible; accused; or held guilty for something. Blaming another is to hold responsible; accuse; find fault with. Putting responsibility on someone or something else to avoid taking responsibility. This is a key emotion in creating a victim mentality and can cause a deterioration of personal power. Blaming the self is finding fault with oneself, which can lead to feelings of self-abuse, depression, etc.

(e.g. He was feeling conflicted about whether or not to take the new job) External Conflict is to fight; to disagree or be disagreeable; to struggle or battle against; to antagonize.
