Can Emotions Cause Knee Pain?

I recently had an enlightening personal health observation that I want to share . . .

Last month I traveled back to CT to spend time with my family over the holidays. I have a great relationship with my family and visits to them certainly never cause me stress. In fact, we had a great time, but strangely I developed a lot of pain in my knee during that visit. I did nothing but sit around for three days with no physical activity and no logical reason for my knee to hurt so much.

On the long drive home I sat in the car clutching my knee and pondering what on earth could be the reason for the pain. I explained to my husband that the pain was exactly the same pain that I experienced when I was young. It was this pain that made me stop playing soccer (or, at least the reason that I got delegated to goalie). It was this exact pain that sent me to the doctors in search of help and was told that I was wearing the cartilage away in my knee way too fast. The doctors gave me a big knee brace to ease the wear and tear and told me that I “would be in trouble by the time I was 30” if I continued to play and be as active as I was.

Fast forward to my 30 and 40s . . . I was just as active, if not more so. Not only was I running, hiking, and biking regularly, but I was doing it all with no knee brace at all. That terrible chronic pain just magically disappeared.

Until this visit back to CT.

All of a sudden a thought hit me and I blurted out to my husband, “Do you think Italian food is causing my pain?” It was mostly a joke, but it was based on the fact that my diet is much different now than it was when I was young and living at home. I lived on nothing but Italian food back then and now I’ve cut it almost completely out of my diet. (My parents and grandparents are probably shaking their fists if they are listening.) I went from never eating it, to a complete Italian Christmas overload. Knowing diet contributes to just about all of our health concerns, my joke might have had some validity and I couldn’t stop thinking about it all the way home.

When I got home, I decided to use my pendulum and my crazy skills at talking to my subconscious to get health-related answers. I specifically asked what was causing this sudden new pain and the very clear answer that I received was a “trapped emotion.” And it wasn’t just a trapped emotion, but a more powerful “inherited trapped emotion” meaning I was born with this and the energy was passed down to me by one of my parents (in this case, my mother). The emotion was “unworthy” and that really made me wonder. It’s very hard for me to be a houseguest because I hate the thought of people going out of their way for me. I hate feeling like a burden and it’s hard for me to eat their food, dirty their laundry, and cause them any extra work. I even brought my own bath towels to this visit which made my sister-in-law shake her head. Hmmmm, maybe I don’t feel worthy of them doing this extra work. And double hmmmmm, maybe being a houseguest for 3 days triggered this trapped energy!

So I used the Emotion Code™ to determine that the trapped energy was indeed in my left knee. And here’s something even more interesting to note . . . Pain in the left side of the body relates to your experiences (past), your emotional self and your memories. I used the Emotion Code technique to release the trapped emotion and the pain COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED. I have not had the slightest bit of pain since.

What is Your Pain Trying to Tell You?

Pain is like our “check engine” light going on. It’s our body trying to give us a sign that something is not right. Many times we think we know the cause for our pain (perhaps from a recent injury) and we turn to pain relievers. The pain relievers do in fact lessen the pain, but they also essentially turn off the ‘check engine’ light. No more pain, no more problem. At least that’s what we think.

But what about when we don’t have a good reason for that pain to be present? What about when unexplained pain comes out of nowhere? Ignoring the ‘check engine’ light is not a good idea. Sure, we can take the painkillers, but it’s also important to try to find the reason for the pain. There are many different messages about our emotional health that our pain may be trying to send us.

Emotional Meanings of Pain

One-sided pain issues can reflect the side of you that feels confused or unsupported.

Left side is the Yin side and is the more receptive side. It responds to stimulus from your environment. It holds your experiences (past), your emotional self, your memories, and emotional joy or pain.

Right side is the Yang side and it organizes and moves you forward into the future. It governs how you interact with the world. When you are experiencing problems on your right side you may feel stuck or hampered in moving forward. Or you may be experiencing unwanted change that is causing fear, reluctance, or trepidation

Pain on the Front side reveals your social or public self. It is the way the world sees you. It reflects those aspects of yourself that are active ingredients in your day-to-day living. This includes communication, desire, caring, loving, happiness, sadness. These show in your face, posture and body language.

Backside pain reflects private and unconscious elements of your life and can be the storehouse for everything you don’t want to deal with or don’t want other people to see. Hidden or unexpressed feelings become frozen into the structure of your body. That means a lot of negative emotions become stored along your spine and in the backs of your legs. Most of your powerful emotions such as anger and fear are stored in your back which pulls your body out of balance.


Energy Medicine and the Emotion Code can help to identify and remove some of these emotional blocks that may just relieve the pain naturally. Contact me today for a free 20-minute consultation to learn more.

The True Cause of Illness

I want to share a couple of images with you that I created to explain illness, the root cause of it, and how we can uncover it. Imagine a huge iceberg with only the very tip sticking out of the water that you can see. The small part that sticks out is the actual pain, illness, or disease. But what’s under the water . . . the part that you can’t see is the root cause of it.

Now let’s use that same image, but instead of thinking about the iceberg in terms of the illness or disease, let’s imagine that it’s our brain. We only use a tiny percentage of our overall intelligence with our conscious mind. What’s below the surface is our subconscious mind and that’s where all the answers are. Our subconscious minds store all the data about our bodies and by tapping into that intelligence we can uncover things that traditional medical tests can not.

If you only treat the tip of the iceberg (also known as the symptom or the disease) you never really get to the root of the problem. Often times this results in the issue resurfacing at some point down the road. What if you could use the untapped portion of your brain, the subconscious mind, to reveal the true hidden causes behind your problems? Wouldn’t that be amazing? What if I told you that I could help you do just that? Would you be curious to enough to book a free consultation? Just click the button below to contact me.

Hidden Causes of Lower Back Pain

Our bodies are constantly trying to send us messages in the form of pain in different areas. We all have aches and pains that can be explained (or at least we think they can be explained) by recent injuries, but how many of us suffer with “pain for no good reason?” No matter what the pain or where it is, we usually have some kind of story that our minds have created for why it’s there, but only our subconscious knows the real reasons. Wouldn’t you just love to know??? I can get those answers for you with the Emotion Code, but in the meantime, here are some clues to what your lower back pain might be trying to tell you.

So what does it mean if you have lumbar (lower) back pain?

Lumbar (lower) vertebrae and tailbone can affect the reproductive organs, hips, large intestine, immune system, kidneys and bladder. Since this area of your body relates to safety and security, the consequences of your childhood show up in this area of your body, as do issues that make you feel threatened or insecure. Lumbar supports your spine and torso. This area is where family and security issues usually surface. Damage in this area often blocks the root chakra. Think of your root chakra like your ‘foundation’ which provides you with stability. It is our body’s most primal and fundamental energy center. When the root chakra is imbalanced due to trauma, psychological issues we experience a disruption in the flow of life. Often our blocked energy centers lead to constant personal and relationship issues. This all leads to feeling insecure and anxious as you turn your personal power and happiness over to others. You may fear success or failure. You will perceive a lack of financial support in your life making you feel as though you are struggling alone or that you never have enough resources (time, money, etc.) A victim mentality may be developing. Are you blaming others?

With Energy Medicine techniques, I can check the vitality of your chakras and clear them. I can also uncover some old emotions that may be trapped in this area and are causing problems. If you have lower back pain and are curious to learn more, please contact me.

Hidden Causes of Neck / Shoulder Pain

I’m nearing completion of my Emotion Code™ Certification and the results have been astounding. So far I’ve worked on over 26 different people and have had some form of success in all but two. There have been significant reductions in pain and anxiety levels. Two of my most successful and exciting cases where performed on dogs. Both dogs had developed a sudden onset of anxiety which kept them from sleeping through the night and completely changed their normally calm demeanor. When things change, for seemingly no reason, in a body there is most certainly some sort of an underlying energetic (and most likely emotional) cause. I was able to identify and release a handful of trapped emotions from both dogs that completely changed their behavior. Within days of their treatment, I received messages from both owners that the dogs were now sleeping through the night. I even got two messages from the same owner to let me know that their dog wasn’t even flinching at nearby fireworks around the 4th of July . . . and then another text a few days later to tell me that the dog was calming resting during a thunderstorm. Now I would say that was a success!

This article will cover the hidden causes of pain in your neck and upper shoulders. And if there’s anybody with plenty of experience with that, it’s me! After suffering with it for several years and finally having surgery, only to have the pain return . . . I finally figured out that the surgery did not address the root cause of the problem. If I only knew then what I know now . . .

So what does it mean if you have cervical spine, neck, and upper shoulder pain?

Neck, cervical vertebrae, and upper shoulders support your head and must be flexible. Tension and stiffness in the neck can indicate inflexibility–not willing or afraid to look at other possibilities. Neuropeptides released by stress and fear gravitate to the neck and shoulder area, causing tightness, pain, and constriction

Your neck sits between your brain and your heart–the two electric command centers of your body. Your neck is the bridge between your head (logic) and your feelings (body). Since your neck is the narrowest point on your body, energy can easily become restricted here

Electrical impulses passing between your heart and brain integrate analytical thinking with emotional desires and feelings. Differences between what the brain thinks and the heart desires can leave you feeling scattered, stuck, confused, or powerless, even dizzy or off-balance. Decisions become difficult. When feelings (fear, self-doubt, overwhelm, etc.) conflict with logic (organization, focus, action, strategy, etc), stress results

A disparity between heart and mind is the root cause of many physical disorders and dysfunctions, particularly auto-immune disorders such as Lupus. You may be judging and punishing yourself harshly, causing your body to punish itself.

Why Do I Have Chronic Neck Pain?

The first year of my Energy Medicine training was filled with endless things to remember, from the locations of all the meridians, source points, alarm points, holding points . . . the list goes on, to procedure after procedure to memorize and practice. It all felt very mechanical and physical to me and I found myself ‘going through the motions’ as directed by my studies. But this year is different. This year, I’m moving away from a focus on memorization and toward applying the knowledge to each unique case. No two people have the same physical or energetic makeup and the most challenging part of my job is to uncover the root of the body’s physical symptom like chronic pain. It’s almost like a puzzle and it really is fun.

What I have discovered this year is just how important the mind/body connection is. During this year’s first quarter classes I learned how to test the body’s energy systems to uncover emotional imbalances and just how those imbalances can affect the physical body. It has been a positively fascinating journey and that journey has led me (quite by fate) to the study of the Emotion Code™ healing system. You can find more information about the Emotion Code by clicking here.

And now I’m diving deeper and deeper into the connection between emotions and physical symptoms. I plan to write an article every month that explores some of these connections. This month I’m going to focus on the neck. It just so happens that it was my neck that caused me so much pain and trouble over the years. Even after neck surgery (a disc fusion) I still wasn’t fully able to get rid of the pain. Not only did the pain come back, but it came along with other problems that I didn’t have pre-surgery! Was this a sign that the root cause of the problem might not have been structural? The thing that completely cured me of my chronic, never-ending neck pain was over one year of regular meditation. It was a big commitment and one that I know not many people can stick to. But now I’ve found a much faster and easier route to the same end result.

So what does it mean if you have chronic pain in your neck?

If you have pain in the back of your head and neck (where your skull meets your spine) you may have issues with guilt. This type of pain often means you made mistakes somewhere along the way that you haven’t forgiven yourself for. You (and perhaps others) are judging yourself harshly. Are you not forgiving yourself? Are you not forgiving others? Is your pride getting in the way? Are you doubting your abilities?

If you have pain in your neck, cervical vertebrae, and upper shoulders it is a sign that you may be inflexible. Perhaps you are not willing or afraid to look at other possibilities. Neuropeptides released by stress and fear gravitate to the neck and shoulder area, causing tightness, pain, and constriction. Your neck sits between your brain and your heart, the two electric command centers of your body. Your neck is the bridge between your head (logic) and your feelings (body). Since your neck is the most narrow point on your body, energy can easily become restricted there.

Electrical impulses passing between your heart and brain integrate analytical thinking with emotional desires and feelings. Differences between what the brain thinks and the heart desires can leave you feeling scattered, stuck, confused, or powerless, even dizzy or off-balance. Decisions can become difficult. When feelings (fear, self-doubt, overwhelm, etc) conflict with logic (organization, focus, action, strategy, etc), stress results.

A disparity between heart and mind is the root cause of many physical disorders and dysfunctions, particularly auto-immune disorders such as Lupus. You may be judging and punishing yourself harshly, causing your body to literally attack and punish itself.

The Art of Energy Healing

This article is a re-post from Dr. Brad Nelson

Often times, people approach the energy healing arts with equal parts interest, curiosity, and skepticism. However, if you’ve ever experienced the power of holistic health care or known someone whose illnesses or ailments have been helped through alternative medicine, you know just how advantageous these practices can be. Though the art of holistic healing has been around for thousands of years, there are still many aspects of holistic medicine that take many by surprise. Energy healing, for example, is perhaps one of the most common forms of holistic medicine used today.

What is Energy Healing?

Energy Healing is an umbrella term for any type of treatment, practice, or method that uses the body’s natural energy flow to restore or maintain a healthy, holistic balance throughout the physical body. As an alternative means of healing, energy healing refers to the belief that aspects of physical, mental, and spiritual health can be treated by accessing and communicating with the subconscious. By using the mind-body connection to identify, access, balance, and manipulate the energies that promote healing and well-being, energy healing practices are able to access all aspects of the patient’s life, body, and mind to find a powerful, remedial solution.

Below are four uncommon facts about energy healing.

1. Muscle testing examines positive and negative energies
The human body lives and functions on principles of biomagnetic energy. While our conscious mind is typically unaware of these energies, our subconscious minds are both hyper-responsive and hyper-resistant to these natural energies and congruences. Fortunately, it’s also these energies that allow holistic practitioners to perform muscle testing. As outlined in The Emotion Code, by tapping into the subconscious mind through muscle testing, practitioners are able to find the root cause of ailments, illnesses, and decreased well-being.

2. Magnetic healing can be traced back more than 2,000 years
The history of magnetic healing traces back more than 2,000 years. In modern times, magnetic healing practices were commonly used in the late 1800’s as a means of detecting diseased tissue in the human body and healing the underlying imbalances. As concepts and theories have developed, the use of magnets in holistic healing continues to remain prevalent as modern practitioners use the body’s own magnetic energy and the energy from static magnets to treat and reduce pain.

3. Chakras offer a “Sixth Sense” into the subconscious
Think about all your eyes see in an hour; think about what they see in a day; a year; a lifetime; Now think about all your Third Eye Chakra sees. As the sixth of seven energy centers in your body, your Third Eye is responsible for connecting our conscious mind with our internal intuitions – our “sixth sense” – so to speak. It through this chakra that you are often able to connect with emotions, feelings, and experiences that happened in the past, yet continue to affect you in the present.

4. Energy Healing is based on scientific principles
One of the biggest misconceptions about alternative medicine is that there is no scientific basis backing its legitimacy. That, however, is simply false. As science has proven for many years, atoms such as hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, and nitrogen, exert their own energy and play a big role in maintaining a healthy mind-body balance. Furthermore, these atoms are also very susceptible to the vibrations given off by each emotion. If you experience a traumatic event, for example, you will actually be able to feel the energy vibrations being spurred from emotions like fear, sadness, anger, etc. Unfortunately, these experiences can affect the natural makeup of the body’s energy field and create an imbalanced energy flow throughout the body, also known as trapped emotions. By using energy healing methods, however, you can identify and release the energies and emotions that have become lodged in the body and maintain a healthy, holistic balance.
