Unpacking Emotional Baggage: How to Release Emotions Trapped in Your Body

Unpacking Emotional Baggage - Dr. Bradley Nelson

Do you struggle with sadness, anxiousness, anger, worry, fear, or other distressing emotions? Fighting these emotions day in and day out may be detrimental to your well-being.

Where do negative emotions come from, and what can we do about them?

When we go through traumatic or intensely difficult experiences, sometimes the feelings can stick with us long afterwards, especially when we don’t process those emotions for one reason or another. These Trapped Emotions can weigh us down, causing us to feel less confident, more upset, or more reactive in our relationships, careers, and life.

Emotions are made of energy, and so is the body. Emotions that aren’t dealt with usually won’t just go away. They’ll stay lodged in your body, holding you back and impacting your feelings. 

Fortunately, there are things you can do to release potentially harmful emotional baggage. The Emotion Code® and The Body Code are are energy healing methods designed to help free your body and mind from the negative energy of trapped emotions.

Emotional Baggage Examples

Trapped emotional energy could come from a wide variety of experiences. A few examples include heartbreak, being let go from a job you love, living through a scary situation, having a fight with a loved one, illness or injury, divorce or a major life change. The more intense the experience, the higher the likelihood that emotions will become trapped. 

When we experience an emotion, that process would ideally go something like this:

  1. An emotional vibration is created.

  2. We feel the emotion, as well as experience any physical sensations or thoughts associated with that emotion.

  3. We process the emotion and the vibration leaves the body.

When step two or three gets interrupted, that often leads to an emotional energy becoming stuck in the body — lingering there and causing physical or emotional issues. Trapped Emotions can cause many different issues, including:

  • Feeling low self-worth or self-esteem

  • Challenges connecting to others and experiencing love 

  • Experiencing physical discomfort or illnesses

  • Becoming more reactive to stressful or upsetting situations

Where Emotions Become Trapped in the Body

Emotions each have their own vibrational frequencies, and those energetic vibrations can interact with the vibrations of our bodies, becoming stuck in certain locations. Emotions stored in body parts can affect the health and wellness of those body parts. Trapped Emotions can be stored anywhere, though there are certain patterns sometimes observed. 

Where a certain emotion is trapped won’t be the same for everyone. While many people experience feelings of stress as tightness in their chest or their jaw, that doesn’t necessarily mean that’s where you’ll find the vibration of stress every time. Similarly, when we’re heartbroken, we often experience that emotion as a sensation in the chest. That might mean the feeling becomes stuck there, but it could also become lodged elsewhere. Not every person will experience an emotion in the same place in their body. 

Releasing Trapped Emotions With The Emotion Code and The Body Code

The most effective way we have found to release emotions that have become trapped in your body is through energy healing with the Emotion Code and the Body Code. These methods are simple and effective. They use the body’s innate knowledge to determine exactly which emotions are trapped and pinpoint where the emotional baggage is stuck. By identifying the specific emotion and location, practitioners of the Emotion Code and the Body Code are able to effectively release the vibration with the use of magnetic energy. 

These powerful tools are non-invasive, easy to learn and use, and often provide immediate relief from a wide array of physical and mental issues. For more information, please visit
