The Healing Code is helping me neutralize emotional chaos.

I don’t know what else to say about it. After using the meditation contained in the book, I’m astonished to remember painful memories with a smile and a feeling of peace. If nothing else, I’ve gained a great deal just from that. I feel in a rush to get through all of my painful memories, but I have to remind myself to take them one at a time and give each the time it deserves. I’ve given the book to my dad and my sister as well.

Now the caveats. Author Alex Loyd opens the book with a story that may spark doubt among skeptics: He says the Healing Codes just came to him on board a plane and he wrote them down. He talks about how his wife Tracey’s years-long depression lifted shortly after starting the Healing Codes.

It sounds like a miracle story — and Loyd also makes it clear that he is religious. However — and it’s a big however — Loyd states that Healing Code results can be measured with the Heart Rate Variability (HRV) test. This is a scientific test with complex parameters, and it would be interesting to find out more about which methods were used to measure HRV before and after the Healing Code meditation. One of the best uses of research money I can think of would be to run a trial to determine if The Healing Code works as advertised.

Here’s the other however, and it has nothing to do with research studies: This meditation works for me. I’ve tried it. I went into it with an open mind, and I put to rest some of my most painful memories. It’s easy to learn and doesn’t take up much time in the day. I don’t know if it will have physical effects or not, but the emotional effects have been worthwhile.

I admit that I was a bit taken aback by the heavy prayer emphasis in the book, since I think it limits its appeal to non-Christians, but when I downloaded the free “truth focus statements” (the “om” equivalent to be repeated while meditating) from the book’s website, I was happy to see quite a few non-religious ones in the mix.

So, in sum: I don’t question what works, and the Healing Code meditation worked for me. Your mileage may vary, but it’s worth taking it for a spin.

Possibly the most important step, since emotional shocks and pain may underlie 1 many physical 2 and mental symptoms. This “mind-clearing” can take many forms such as tai chi, qigong, yoga, meditation, deep breathing, or Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). One form of meditation that is helping me is The Healing Codes. If you can get past the authors’ religious overtones, the technique they describe really works for me — and they do provide non-religious “focus statements.”
