The Eeyore Effect – How Mindset Effects Your Health

By Dr. Jen O’Sullivan

Consider this non-medical term that has major implications on how your body responds to anything you use for your health. It is called the “Eeyore Effect”. Your mind can and will deter you from health. If you have a bad attitude about always being sick you will always be sick. 

If you have coined your pain as something you own such as “my pain, my disease, my illness”, then guess what, you own it and will never get rid of it. It is time for you to do some serious mental work and consider how you speak about your issues and how you may be holding onto them.

As a very clear example, I can put on an essential oil that is supposed to give me a sense of joy, yet if I am mad, and I want to stay mad, my body will reject the action of that oil. It is the same with supplements, oils, health foods, and any other healing modality.

A way to help overcome this is to do some specific mental exercises. When working with a modality such as an oil, supplement, patch, etc, sit or lie on your back for about 10 minutes with your hands on your belly. Take some deep breaths in and out. With your eyes closed, visualize the specific modality working well. Visualize your cells waking up and utilizing the modality you are working with. Visualize healing and wellness throughout your entire body. Work from the center of the issue area out. Do this at least once per day for a week to 30 days or more.

Your mind is an extremely powerful healing tool, so use it wisely!

Releasing Trapped Emotions using the Emotion Code

The Emotion Code® by Dr. Bradley Nelson is a great way to release trapped emotions. See below for details or get his book online.

Emotion Code® Method:

  1. Check your polarity. If you are constantly tripping and bumping into things, your polarity may be reversed. Do the cross crawl method to balance your polarity.
  2. Make sure you are properly hydrated.
  3. MRT (Muscle Response Testing)
    O-Ring Method: Link your hands by putting both pointer fingers and thumbs into an O-ring shape. See demonstration here. State your name as, “My name is _______”. Check the strength of the bond. It should be strong. State an incorrect name from the opposite sex, “My name is ______” and your O-ring bond should break. If it doesn’t do the cross crawl method again to reset polarity.
    The Sway Method: Stand up straight with your feet hip distance apart. Place your hand over your chest. Say the word “love” and you should sway forward. Say the word “hate” and you should sway backward.
  4. Make the statement aloud, “I have a trapped emotion.” With your chosen MRT method you should get a positive answer.
  5. Look briefly at the Emotion Code® Chart (below) and say “This trapped emption is in column A.” If you get a positive response then move to the next step. If negative, say “This trapped emotion is in column B.”
  6. Work through the chart until you find your trapped emotion. Go from columns to rows (odd row vs even row, then individual rows, then onto each emotion in that column and row.)
  7. Once you find the emotion say, “I have the trapped emotion of________.”
  8. Next you will determine when this emotion was trapped. Ask yourself if the emotion was inherited. If yes, find out which side of your family. Check which generation.
  9. If the emotion was not inherited, determine which part of your life it occurred in. “This emotion is from the first half of my life.” If the answer is yes, ask if it was in utero and then which trimester from your mother. If not in utero, check by age blocks such as “This emotion is from the first five years of life.” Keep asking in sets of five until you get your time frame, then ask specific ages. If not from the first half of your life, continue to check through the second half of your life using the same method.
  10. When you determine the age of your trapped emotion, ask the question “I need to find out more about this trapped emotion.” If yes, say “I can release this emotion now.” If yes, then release it.
  11. If more info is needed, you may need to continue to investigate and identify the circumstances that is associated with the trapped emotion.
  12. Think about any body part or organ that has been chronically in pain or ill that happened the same year you found in your investigation. Say, “This trapped emotion is in my _____?”
  13. Once you find out all the information you need, say, “I can release this emotion now.” If yes, release it. You may simply say, “I release this emotion.” There are additional magnet methods to ensure release, but often working through this without magnets is perfectly effective.
