This week on Voices of Courage, Ken D. Foster is joined by Dr. Bradley Nelson, the author of the best-selling book, “The Emotion Code,” that explains how to identify and release trapped emotions that block us from wellness, and Rico Caveglia, a speaker, author, multi-gold and silver medalist in the California State Senior Olympics, and America’s Healthy Aging Trainer, to discuss letting go of our heavy emotional baggage and living a healthy and ageless lifestyle.
Ken begins by asking the listener if their future is bright. He says someone’s thinking is a reflection of the world and how if you do not have the world, you want how you can change your thinking to improve it. He calls our programmed negative thoughts, “thought viruses,” and how we can overcome these thoughts to change our lives. Ken welcomes his first guest Dr. Bradley Nelson, author of the book “The Emotional Code.” Dr. Nelson begins by explaining what emotional baggage is and how it harms our life.
Dr. Nelson explains how everything around us is made of energy and how our thoughts and emotions are also energy. Negative emotions cause our body to vibrate at different frequencies, and if the emotion is powerful enough, it can become trapped in our bodies. Through tapping into our subconscious mind, we can get rid of the trapped energy in our bodies. Dr. Nelson used this technique with a woman to help her overcome her grief from her husband having an affair. Ken asks Dr. Nelson which illness is caused by holding on to emotional baggage. Dr. Nelson explains how nearly every doctor he’s met agrees that emotional baggage is a part of everyone’s illness.
Ken asks Dr. Nelson what a “heart wall” is. Dr. Nelson explains how ancient people viewed the heart as the center of the soul and that they were on to something as the heart can be the center of all our emotional problems and solutions. Ken welcomes his next guest Rico Caveglia, a 78-year-old fitness coach with a 35-year-old man’s fitness level. Rico explains his wellness system, which he created by researching how we can keep the body as healthy as possible for as long as possible. He explains that one of the first steps to taking control of your health is changing your mindset. Ken asks Rico why he thinks aging is an issue in our country, which Rico explains is a result of pharmaceutical and health companies influencing people into making unhealthy choices by default. He says this can be combatted by taking responsibility for our own health. He says no matter what condition your health is in, by taking steps to make yourself healthier, the results will always come. Rico says part of remaining healthy is to enjoy your life and still leave time for having fun.
Ken brings back both his guests and asks Dr. Nelson, what his message to the world is? Dr. Nelson talks about how we can’t make it to a brighter future without getting rid of enough of our emotional baggage. Ken asks Rico the same question, to which he replies with an encouragement for people to up their game and improve their health.
