Here is a bit more on trapped emotions from Dr. Bradley Nelson.
The concept of a Trapped Emotion can be strange if you've never heard of it before, especially if you're not familiar with energy work. Yet so many people are catching on to The Emotion Code because they understand what it means to have emotional baggage.
When you're first introducing your friends and family to The Emotion Code, I've found that bringing up that term "emotional baggage" usually opens the right door to their understanding. If you get too scientific, talking about atoms and quantum physics, you'll probably lose at least a few people.
Here's a quick explanation you can give when teaching people what Trapped Emotions are:
Just about everyone has some amount of emotional baggage from painful life events, right? It's not all in your head! Emotional baggage is very real, and although it's invisible it can really mess up your happiness, your success and your health. It's like lugging around a suitcase from every difficult event you've gone through- eventually the load gets too heavy not to notice. I call each "suitcase" a Trapped Emotion- a bit of emotional energy that was created, by you, during an emotional event, and got stuck in your body somewhere.
Trapped Emotions are literally like balls of energy, vibrating at different frequencies depending on what the emotion is (for example, Anger is a different vibration than Sadness or Insecurity). Trapped Emotions are negative, destructive vibrations, and tend to affect the body wherever they are stuck, creating pain and malfunction of bodily tissues, even disease. They can also cause depression, anxiety and loads of emotional problems. Trapped Emotions sure can make life miserable, but you can get rid of them using The Emotion Code and lighten your load for good!
