When You Can’t Find Memories …

In an earlier post, I answered a question about what to do if you have too many memories. Here is the opposite problem: what to do if you can’t find any earlier memories connected to the feeling in your issue.

Q: “I have health problems but don’t know what caused them. I can’t remember anything in my past that may have brought them on. How do I do a Healing Code without having pictures to heal from the past? Can I just picture the health problem I have now?”

A: You don’t always need to find earlier pictures, though it is helpful and seems to speed up the healing when you can find them. Your heart always finds and heals many earlier memories without your being aware of them. It just speeds up the process if you can access at least some of the earlier memories. So, it may take you a little longer to heal your physical issue if you don’t have memories. Be patient with the process.

The best way to try to access memories is to ask yourself how you feel about your physical issue. Then ask yourself when is another time you felt that way about anything, not just a similar issue.

Many clients cannot remember much from childhood. That is usually a sign that there is quite a lot of “heart junk” underneath. Some people have what Dr. Bradley Nelson calls a “heart wall” that keeps them from being in touch with their hearts.

The Healing Codes can heal a heart wall, and in fact, I believe it’s automatically a part of the process. It doesn’t hurt, however, to put “my heart wall” in the prayer of intention. What I and many clients find is that the memories do start to come after you’ve been doing the Healing Codes for a while.

Often the memories come only after they’ve healed. If you remember something and there is a perfect peace about it, that’s your heart giving you a piece of your life back, all healed. It was one of the wonderful things I discovered about The Healing Codes that I did not expect.

There is a difference, however, between peace and numbness. If an earlier memory surfaces and you feel numb about it rather than peaceful, that’s a signal it’s a memory that wants to be healed. Put it in the prayer of intention before you do your Healing Code, even if you can’t rate it. Work on it until you feel peace, not numbness.

By the way, a reminder: When doing a Healing Code, make sure you’re picturing something positive, not your issue. You only get in touch with your issue enough to rate it and put it in the initial prayer of intention. Then you switch to focusing on the positive Truth Focus Statements or a Love Picture.

  1. I love the fact that Dr. Nelson and the emotion code is mentioned in this article, as I love to use the emotion code myself as well as the healing code, but was wondering if they are comparable and what Dr. Loyd actually thinks about it. I would actually love to hear what he says about the emotion code if possible…thanks. Blessings, Claudia

    • Claudia,
      I don’t know what Dr. Loyd will say but my own opinion, from working with clients, is that the heart wall concept is a good one but The Healing Codes go much deeper. Sometimes I use The Healing Codes to break down a heart wall so a client can listen to their heart better, but once you break down the barrier between you and your heart, there is inevitably heart junk in the heart that needs to be healed. Also, The Emotion Code works on the meridians, which is a different system than The Healing Codes. The Healing Codes heal the cellular memories, which I don’t think The Emotion Code gets at. Finally, I love the fact that we use the energy from our very own bodies to heal, rather than needing a magnet.

      That’s my opinion, anyway. I think the Emotion Code is a very good book and even helps people understand the concept of energy and trapped emotions and the damage they can do.
