Are you a Christain and wondering if energy healing is Christian? Perhaps you have concerns that Emotion Code or Body code work is New Age and goes against Christian beliefs? Here I will address all of those concerns as I spent a lot of time researching the same questions before I started down the path to becoming a certified Emotion Code and Body Code practitioner.
Before delving into the world of energy healing, body code and emotion code I had some big questions and big concerns. I always try to have good discernment and not allow myself to walk down a path that could be of anything against what the bible teaches.
I spent a lot of time researching my concerns and finding guidance from God and the scriptures to lead me down the right path. Was the body code and emotion code a viable way for me to help people heal and feel well? Let’s dive deep into the big questions because I am sure you have them too!
First, a little about me and my background. My name is Sarah Marturano and I am a Registered Nurse (with an active license), Certified Emotion Code Practitioner, I am trained in muscle response testing, nutrition coaching and I am on my way to being certified in the Body Code as well. I have been on both sides of medicine. I have been fully engrossed in western medicine and what is generally accepted as the “normal” standard of care in the United States. After that method grossly failed me I dove headfirst into the world of holistic wellness and natural methods to heal the body. I discovered a whole new world where instead of treating symptoms (and never addressing the root cause), I was able to heal root cause issues and be free of the symptoms without toxic pharmaceuticals, surgeries or other invasive procedures. I was amazed and in awe. After being a full believer in western medicine, I had no idea this other world even existed! How could this be? How could it be so hidden from the masses? Not only was I in awe and amazement but I was also perturbed that the masses didn’t know about this natural approach and wasn’t benefiting from it.
After reclaiming my health and feeling better than I even knew was possible, I knew I had to bring this to more people. I couldn’t just sit with all the knowledge I learned over years of trial and error. I had to share this and help others who were struggling just like I was. God called on my heart to help people reclaim their health and get their lives back.
Now that you know a little bit about me and my health background, let’s move on to the important questions.
Is the Emotion Code or Body Code New Age, Sorcery, Divination or Witchcraft?
When evaluating something we aren’t familiar with it can be easy to instantly fear that it is of the devil. I will admit that when I first experienced muscle testing done on myself by a practitioner I was seeing, I came home and started googling if muscle testing was witchcraft. I had never seen such a thing and I was worried for my soul!
The plain answer is NO, Emotion Code, Body Code and muscle testing are NOT new age, sorcery, divination or witchcraft (or anything of the like).
The deeper answer is that we can examine what they are and that will help us to see where they come from so you can reach your own conclusion.
In Emotion Code, Body Code and muscle testing we use the subconscious mind to get answers to yes or no questions about your body. We do this through a process that utilizes a muscle going strong or going weak in response to the question we ask the body. This may sound like magic, but it is far from it. It is science and it is God-created.
Your subconscious mind is like a binary computer. It stores the information of everything that has ever happened to you. It knows all of it. Perhaps you’ve heard before that humans only use less than 10% of their brains. This is true! Our conscious mind only utilizes under 10% of our brain. The remainder is left to the subconscious mind’s operations. Knowing this, wouldn’t it be cool if we could ask it questions to see what it knows about your body and get accurate answers that only your subconscious mind knows? We can!
Utilizing muscle testing we ask the subconscious mind yes or no questions and measure the response of the muscle for the answer. The body is strengthened by truth and weakened by lies. If you tell me a lie and I test your muscle, it will go weak. If you tell me a truth and I test your muscle it will remain strong. Knowing we are beings created in God’s image it makes sense that truth would make us strong and lies would make us weak doesn’t it?
Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines sorcery as: “SOR’CERY, noun, Magic; enchantment; witchcraft; divination be the assistance of evil spirits, or the power of commanding evil spirits”.
The Cambridge Dictionary defines divination as: “the skill or act of saying or discovering what will happen in the future”.
When we utilize muscle testing we are not accessing or utilizing evil spirits or predicting what will happen in the future. We are simply asking your body a yes or no question and getting an answer from the binary computer that is your subconscious mind.
This in NO WAY involves evil spirits, the devil or anything of demonic nature.
Muscle testing is actually a scientific process and doesn’t utilize spirits.
Are Chakras New Age?
When we hear things like “energy body”, “meridians” or “chakras” we may instantly think this is a New Age practice. That is not true.
While we don’t see the words “chakra” in the bible, there are a lot of things that are not named in the bible. What we need to do is determine if the principle of chakras being energy wheels in the body violates scripture.
We serve a God who creates order. The idea that we have energy flowing through our bodies (which can be measured by EEG, EKG, etc) is not a new concept. The idea that the energy flows along something called meridians is also not a new concept and was discovered thousands of years ago. The idea that this energy pathway has intersecting energy pathways that create a vortex of energy called a chakra is also not a new concept. I think we can all agree that we have energy flowing through our bodies at all times. Science has confirmed this for us. Chakras are nothing more than energy centers in the body.
Chakras and meridians are the “order” of our energy system. God creates order.
Science has even discovered a way to measure our energy. Beyond things like EEG brain wave scans, EKG heart scans, there is now a way to measure the energy in our bodies. If you want to dive deeper into this search Heart Math Institute and the work of Dr. Korotkov. Just because something is new to you and new to the western medical community, doesn’t make it of evil origin.
We are beings of energy, created by God. He created this and what he created is good. The bible tells us this.
Can We Really Release Emotions?
Yes, we really can release emotions without reliving the past traumas and events that created them.
Tesla was a famous scientist who said: “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.”
Emotions are simply energy. A frequency or vibration that is stored in the body. This can distort tissues around it and can contribute to symptoms surrounding it. Have you ever had stomach upset because of anxiety? Anxiety is a frequency and as you have probably experienced, can cause physical symptoms. We can release these frequencies and thus, release these emotions for good. Once they are released that is all. They don’t come back. You can create new trapped emotions but the ones that you release don’t come back.
Do you believe that God wants you to live with these emotions and resulting symptoms or do you believe he wants you to be free of them and be of a sound mind? I believe he wants us free from things holding us back and causing us to not have peace. The bible tells us this.
Can Our DNA Store Memories?
Epigenetic memory modifies DNA and can alter our genes. Researchers found that these memories can be passed down 14 successive generations. One research on how trauma affects the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors found these descendants have an abnormal stress hormone profile and are more prone to suffer from PTSD, anxiety and depression. To read more about this epigenetics study.
We know that our DNA can store these things passed down from our ancestors and that they can have an effect on us. Using the body code and emotion code we can zero in on these things and release those frequencies so they no longer hold you back.
Is Muscle Testing New Age?
We use muscle testing to use the body code, emotion code and nutrition testing. Muscle testing is also known as kinesiology.
Kinesiology is defined as: “Kinesiology, Study of the mechanics and anatomy of human movement and their roles in promoting health and reducing disease.”
We are simply using your body’s muscle response to determine if something is beneficial to YOUR body or not. Everyone has different needs and one supplement may be amazing for me, but your body may not need or want it. That is why we use muscle testing to determine exactly what nutrition your body needs to heal itself. Everyone is different and entirely unique in their body’s specific needs.
Muscle testing is not New Age. It is simply another tool used to assess the body and determine it’s nutritional needs or subconscious answers.
Are We Made Of Energy?
If you look at your hand it looks solid right? Well, if you looked at it under a microscope you would see that it isn’t solid at all.
Every human on planet Earth is made up of millions and millions of atoms which all are 99% empty space. If you were to remove all of the empty space contained in every atom in every person on planet earth and compress us all together, then the overall volume of our particles would be smaller than a sugar cube.
We have known for some time that every object is made of tiny molecules and that molecules are made up of even tinier atoms. Atoms are made of tiny sub-atomic particles called neutrons, protons and electrons. This invisible world that makes up the solid objects of our environment is the world of quantum physics.
What we perceive as our physical material world, is really not physical or material at all, in fact, it is far from it. This has been proven time and time again by multiple Nobel Prize (among many other scientists around the world) winning physicists, one of them being Niels Bohr, a Danish Physicist who made significant contributions to understanding atomic structure and quantum theory.
“If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet. Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.” – Niels Bohr
The Newtonian physical universe that we were taught in school is not the solid truth that we were led to believe it was.
“Despite the unrivaled empirical success of quantum theory, the very suggestion that it may be literally true as a description of nature is still greeted with cynicism, incomprehension and even anger.” (T. Folger, “Quantum Shmantum”; Discover 22:37-43, 2001)
It is time to drop the physics class and move forward into the new discoveries that are truth.
“Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual” (1) – Richard Conn Henry, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Johns Hopkins University (quote taken from “the mental universe)
Could energy be the new frontier of medicine?
“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”
One of these potential revelations is that “the observer creates the reality.”
A fundamental conclusion of the new physics also acknowledges that the observer creates the reality. As observers, we are personally involved with the creation of our own reality. Physicists are being forced to admit that the universe is a “mental” construction. Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: “The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. (R. C. Henry, “The Mental Universe”; Nature 436:29, 2005)
Studies have shown that positive emotions and operating from a place of peace within oneself can lead to a very different experience for the person emitting those emotions and for those around them.
We can look to the bible for wisdom on this. We are instructed to:
The bible also instructs us:
Knowing all of this and the concept of quantum physics, I think you can see that the possibilities are truly exciting!
In conclusion, I choose to use the bible to guide all of my decisions in life. I have done my due diligence in researching all of the topics outlined above and I do not believe any of them to be demonic, New Age, evil or of the devil.
Keep in mind that just because something (like the New Age movement) uses something, doesn’t instantly make it evil. We need to use good judgment, prayer and the bible to determine if something is created by God for our good or is of the devil.
As a bible-believing Christian, I don’t use any methods that cross the line between divine and of evil origins. The devil can only twist what God has created, he cannot create anything new. Keep this in mind as you evaluate things and make your own conclusions. I believe that God wants us well and all sickness is from the devil. The bible tells us this. It is my mission to help you reclaim your birthright. You have the right to be well. You just need to claim it.
