The Body Code

A Heartful Healing video introducing The Body Code.

Certified Body Code UK Practitioner Badge for Guy Shahar of Heartful Healing


The Body Code (incorporating both The Emotion Code and The Belief Code) is what we have always used as our primary tool at Heartful Healing.

It is an incredibly simple, but amazingly powerful energy healing system that enables us to identify and release the various imbalances trapped in our bodies that are causing us pain, spoiling our condition, or holding us back from what we want to acheive in life. Often, these are related to repressed emotions or shocks and traumatic experiences from our past, but The Body Code is able to also deal with many different types of imbalances (including various energetic imbalances, small structural misalignments, toxins, pathogens, the residue of old illnesses or decisions or beliefs, offensive energies like cords and entities, and much more), making it a comprehensive healing system in itself.

We use it to free us from our issues and help us to live to our true potential.


Through the huge range of imbalances it can deal with, The Body Code facilitates deeper and more comprehensive treatment of almost any sort of issue, including:

In a typical session, I will start by making a connection with your subconscious mind, and then use muscle-testing to ask yes/no questions of it.  This will lead us to the specific imbalances that need to be released, which we then do using a simple technique. 

We don’t need to discuss or relive each painful experiences that caused the trapped emotion in the first place.  This is not psychotherapy, far from it.  Your job is simply to be present and aware of the life you’d like to be living.  It’s not even necessary to be in the same place – we can do it all over Zoom.

You can see some recorded sample sessions in some of the videos further down the page.

Why Do We Need The Body Code?

While conventional medicine really excels in an emergency like a broken bone, or the aftermath of a car accident, many of our chronic issues do not seem to have an obvious medical cause.

People with sleep, digestive or mental health issues (for example) or ongoing aches and pains, often feel that there’s no meaningful help available through conventional channels, not to mention simply feeling below par, unmotivated or lacking direction, or having communication or anger issues, etc, etc.

Many people (including me) have found that addressing such issues energetically has yielded results that hadn’t previously seemed possible.

How Does It Work?

Our subconscious minds know everything that’s ever happened to us and understand the roots of any of our issues.  Unfortunately, we can’t easily access this information.  Body Code practitioners are trained and practised in accessing this information from our subconscious minds, using muscle testing.

They use the Body Code to let the information they get from our minds guide them to know what to work on and how.  It’s extremely simple and immensely powerful.

How Can It Help?

The Body Code can be used to assist with almost any type of issue, and there are some examples of how I like to use it in the video at the top of the page, as well as in the sections below.

And it’s not only with people, but I have found that it works especially well with children and pets.  As they have less resistance, and are generalliy simpler in their make-up, results can often be quicker and more profound.

Ways We Can Use It

However, it goes much further than these, and also addresses a huge range of other imbalances that lie behind the issues we may have.  These can include Mental and Emotional Blocks (including post-traumatic energies, decisions we may have taken in weak moments about what we want which are still holding us back, remnants of past illnesses, underlying core beliefs, and much more), Energetic Imbalances in any of the body’s Circuits and Systems or in our energy field, Structural Misalignments in any of the body’s Circuits and Systems, Toxins and  Pathogens we may have been exposed to at any time our lives. Sometimes, it may be the case that these toxins and pathogens is no longer with us, but their energy remains causing complications for our health.  It is even possible for this energy to have been inherited, so it may not relate to anything we’ve had in our own lives at all.

Our original interview with Body Code creator, Dr Bradley Nelson.  We talk about the roots of the Body Code, some key energy healing principles and we get an early demonstration of the new Belief Code.

Reversing Limiting Beliefs and Blockages


The Body Code can bring about huge changes in many ways.  One of my favourite ways of working is to either create a powerful goal statement to work towards, or to identify underlying beliefs associated with particular issues and reverse them.  It’s truly amazing what can be achieved  While The Belief Code, currently in preparation, will be specifically designed to identify and reverse entire limiting belief systems, there’s still plenty we can do with beliefs using Complete Healing.

It could be a core belief that someone’s been carrying around for years like “I’m worthless” or “I don’t deserve love” or “It’s not safe to have money”.  We can actually quantify exactly how much that person believes this (and it’s opposite) and is guided by it on an unconscious level.  Then we can identify (using muscle testing – for more on this see the FAQ question on What To Expect From A Session) what imbalances are influencing this, and remove them one by one.  It’s amazing to see the strength of the negative belief come down after each one.  I’ve worked with several people whose negative beliefs were at 99%, and typically, within a couple of sessions, they’re down to zero and their opposite is up to 100%.  After that, the person is approaching life in a new way and attracting different outcomes with their energy.

The same can be achieved with other blockages.  For example, if there’s a project someone is procrastinating about and not starting, we can ascertain their level of ability and readiness to progress it, and bring that up to 100% in the same way.

I love this way of using healing to track progress as we work our way through all sorts of different issues.  The testimonial below is a simple but powerful illustration of how a change in our unconscious thinking can immediately bring about transformations in our experience of life.  We had been working on her belief that she didn’t deserve to be helped, which had resulted in her ending up doing everything on her own.

Morgan Freeman (and others) talk about these unconscious beliefs that determine our destiny (to an unnecessarily dramatic musical backdrop…).  It is these beliefs that we are able to access and remould using the Body Code.

A Deeper Way To Use It

Few people (including myself when I have been working through my own imbalances) have the faith and patience to try this, but when they do, the results have been wonderful.  It is essentially about letting go of our own agenda of what we want healed, and just asking the subconscious mind (through muscle testing) which imbalances we should clear.  After all, we know deep down what is in our interests much more than we do on a conscious level.

It takes a big leap of faith to do this, but the results can be phenomenal.
