My new favorite technique…
Have been doing EFT for many years, and have read many books on various energy psychology techniques – would say that this one is now what I would recommend to people to use: clearing the negatives -and- instilling the positives. And as with EFT, one learns a lot about oneself by moving through the process multiple times, because more comes up into play as you clear that one bit away… Excellent to do with somebody guiding you -or- on your own.
Never too late to recover
I started the exercise before the investigation process and felt an immediate lift. In 2 days I read this entire book and started the investigation and began practice immediately to address individual beliefs. The practices are simple and easy to follow. I can lament if only this information was available 40 years ago my life may have been different. But, it’s different now and for that I am grateful.
Excellent Approach backed By Science
This book is very interesting and engaging. It backs up its seemingly metaphysical claims with as much science as it backs up its psychological claims. This is a work that nods to the ancient ideas of the East without getting bogged down in any spiritual lunacy that often creeps up in those areas. It also recognizes the fact that we are energy and recommends thinking of yourself as such, but it never shoves any quackery or nonsense down your throat. In fact, the bulk of the book is an admonition to respect the awesome power of your subconscious. In an interesting twist, it offers a simple way to check if you’re in tune with the subconscious by using neuro-muscular feedback. Quite interesting, as it almost always works!
By respecting the control your subconscious has upon your life, the book takes you through a series of exercises and optional ideas to tune into your hidden self (if you will) and remove those harmful ideas, effects of abuse, etc. that are causing you to be less of a human being than you deserve to be.
This is not a one-time fix. This is not magic. This is reprogramming a brain by addressing the brain correctly. It is definitely a successful approach. It does work. It works astonishingly well for some areas and incrementally well in others. The extent of your problems, abuses, etc. will determine how much you should engage with this process. But the process is easy. It simply requires time, a quiet place, and some repetition.
This is not a rehashing of beliefs in affirmations and visualization, but it is quite similar–only with a very logical and effective approach to utilizing both techniques.
If you want to start on a journey toward happiness and personal truth, erasing all of those harmful ideas the brain has accepted since childhood–or even trauma in adulthood–buy this book. If you were abused, if you suffered PTSD, if you have addictions, if you have self-hate, if you were bullied, if you have unfounded fears, if you have anger issues . . . BUY THIS BOOK.
It teaches you to understand yourself biologically and respect yourself as a person. More importantly, it offers you a way to heal yourself and get more out of life.
Bestseller in my mind!
What a joy to now know my personal code to finding more of it! Both the case histories and the info about WHY the steps and order of them in their process work, made this a very convincing read. I already feel a sense of lightness and hope around clearing away some foggy bottoms in my life. On my way to more joy! I read the ebook version and now want a hard copy that I can write all over, bend down corners and fill with stickies!
Taking action to diminish past traumas
A third of the book discusses short stories describing reasons people’s lives have been transformed by going through this four-step process. I’m half way finished with Code to Joy; it’s taking awhile to get to the substance of its practice. But easy to follow and some practical applications for self help for those who want to break negative patterns.
Amazing enlightening book!
This book is the best self help book I have ever read–A true gem and treasure. No mushy woo-woo stuff–just pure wisdom from the source, giving a powerful path to walk down if one is ready to live a life without fear, doubt, guilt, shame, and all the other self limitations that have been imposed on ourselves throughout our life’s journey through the stagnant dark tangled web of trauma…This book shows clearly, easily, and elegantly how to untangle that web and then walk down a path that will lead you to discover and uncover and behold the forgotten bliss of your radiant joyous self–I am very, very impressed–Much gratitude to the authors–Thank You!–Philip M.Berk, author Mountain’s Stillness, River’s Wisdom
