To be totally accurate, my commitment was neither immediate nor simultaneous with Dan’s. At first, I was curious and mildly intrigued. I figured it was Dan’s thing and I was just along for the ride. But by the third day, I had tumbled headlong into what felt strangely like Home, like Destiny. On March 19, 2016, I made what felt like an impulsive decision, though now I know it was a long overdue surrender to what I had known all along was what I was born to do.
A couple of months before, Dan had purchased The Body Code, Dr. Bradly Nelson’s brilliant system of finding and addressing imbalances in the body. I was excited for Dan, who immediately took to the work, both in its approach to healing and the logistics. He was able to navigate the “mind maps” with ease on his iPad. In the Timing of the Lord, he was told there was going to be a three-day retreat/workshop in Las Vegas in just about six weeks. Dan was given a free ticket to Dr. Brad’s training in The Body Code. As a bonus, it came with an extra ticket for a guest. Dan invited me.
I had been doing The Emotion Code, Dr. Brad’s system for finding and removing trapped emotions with magnetic energy. It didn’t require a lot of reading, and I was enjoying treating an occasional neurotic dog or traumatized human being. In real life, I was a writer. I enjoyed energy work, but my dad, Dr. Thomas Wing, and my husband, Dr. Dennis Greenlee, were the geniuses who pioneered microcurrent and a system of blending electronic medicine with Chinese meridian therapy. I worked in their offices, taught seminars and wrote books with them, and reveled in watching miracles happen, but they were the ones with the credentials. I graduated in Comparative Literature with an emphasis on poetry. They were the healers. I was just along for the ride.
Then there Dan and I were in a large, packed conference hall in a nice hotel on the outskirts of Las Vegas, watching Dr. Brad reveal the efficacy of the protocols, demonstrating on volunteers from the audience. It was so fast and painless; nobody had to relive any horrors. For years I’d done EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), with some of Dr. Peter Levine’s trauma healing, a little Sozo, and microcurrent (my dad’s invention). Everything took a long time. A typical session was ninety minutes to two hours. I loved the work, but it was tiring and requires so much attention. On days I had clients, I was often too drained to write.
But a typical session using this method takes about twenty minutes—enough time to clear an ample amount of trapped emotions from the body so it has something to process, but not so much that it is overloaded and overwhelmed. It is also much easier on the practitioner. My curiosity was stirred. At times God sends me clusters of people and animals to treat. I had been wondering if He wanted me to get certified in something. But what? Raindrop Therapy? EFT? The Healing Code? Now here was The Emotion Code, so practical and so harmonious with my background in energy medicine. But the logistics…
I slipped out of the lecture hall and found staff members Whitney and Mary sitting together. I poured out questions and concerns. The internet is so difficult for me. How could I handle an online course with hours of teachings and tests? They told me the lectures are videos, and, after discussing a bit, said it would be okay to have a sighted person help me with the tests. That sounded good. I decided to pray about it.
Too soon, the sessions were over. Dan and I were eating our picnic lunch in the parking lot. Suddenly I blurted out, “I think I’m supposed to sign up for certification in the Emotion Code.” I could barely talk because of the tears. Embarrassed, I mumbled, “I don’t know why I’m crying.” Dan said, “I think I know. I think it’s the blindness. You’ve lost so much. You’ve had to give up so many things you love. Now here’s something you’re getting back. You’re saying ‘I’m going for it, no matter what.’”
A rush of hot tears verified his diagnosis. I had thought it was my fear of failure and feelings of inadequacy, but that was the whispering past. In the workshop we had done clearing on hindrances to our heart’s desires and alignment with the Will of God. Now I was free enough to be choosing to go ahead with something new and difficult in spite of my severely limited vision. I was finally able to admit I love this work. I was committing myself to my heritage in energy medicine. Instead of fearing getting trapped in a career path I might regret, I was absolutely giddy with joy.
Dan signed up about a month later. So now we’re both working on certification in The Emotion Code, a prerequisite to certification in The Body Code. It’s the most exciting energy healing work I’ve done in decades. Not since I learned muscle testing and emotional release in the 1970s from Dr. George J. Goodheart, the Father of Applied Kinesiology, have I used anything so fast and effective.
The Emotion Code certification program requires watching a whole bunch of instructional videos and taking quizzes, followed by a 100-question final exam. After Dan got me logged in and set up with the right menus, I was able to do everything, including the tests, all by myself.
Tonight I finished the videos and, after Dan found it for me, I took the final exam. I passed with 94% and a big sigh of relief.
Now I’m on the home stretch. I have to treat 30 clients—26 humans and 4 animals or 20 animals and 10 humans. I have already been treating people and dogs, and having a delightful time watching them go free so easily. Four months remain for me to complete the final requirements. I’m so exhilarated that I can do this—with joy, prayer, access technology, and a little help from my friends.
