What is Proxy Testing and how is it done?

If you have read "The Emotion Code," you have gained an understanding of "Proxy Testing." In case you need to refresh your memory, I have excerpted portions of "The Emotion Code" below for your review:

When someone has been given authority to act for someone else, we commonly refer to the authorized person as a proxy. A proxy is someone who acts as a substitute. In proxy testing, the proxy temporarily “becomes” the person being tested. By voluntarily putting themselves into the position of standing in for someone else, a proxy can be tested as if they were the subject of the testing, allowing their body to be used to benefit the subject. Proxy testing is most useful when you want to help someone who is not present or who is inaccessible for some reason.
When you release trapped emotions from someone at a distance, it is literally a form of remote or distance healing. Although remote healing has not been incorporated into Western Medicine, it has been practiced both anciently and in modern times by those who practice The Silva Method, Qigong, GungFu, Reiki and other respected techniques.


Healing Allison in Japan

I once worked with a number of ballerinas from a local dance school near my practice. Allison, one of the dancers that I had been treating, went to Japan to dance with a group from Disneyland. Late one night, I got a phone call from Allison’s worried mother. “Doctor Nelson, we have a big problem,” she said. “Allison has hurt her hip and can’t dance. She is supposed to be in a big show tomorrow. Is there anything you can do?” I told her I’d like to speak to Allison, so she gave me the number of her hotel in Japan. When I reached her, Allison described the problem with her hip and said it had started bothering her that day for no apparent reason, and that she was having difficulty walking. Dancing the next day was out of the question. Having gotten permission from Allison’s mother and from Allison to test her, I asked Jean to act as proxy.
Although Allison was literally on the other side of the earth, we had no problem making the connection. We chose to call Allison on the phone in this situation to get her input, but it’s important to note that proxy testing can be done without having the subject on the telephone while you are testing them.
The energetic connection between the proxy and the subject is sufficient. Distance is no barrier to energy. Energy is truly everywhere, and fills the world, and indeed fills the immensity of space. There is as much energy in the air between objects as there is in the objects themselves. Since energy is continuous and everywhere-present, working on Allison presented no difficulty. We discovered that Allison had two trapped emotions lodged in the tissues of her hip. The trapped emotions had to do with loneliness and grief over her trip to Japan. “Do you feel that you don’t want to be in Japan?” I asked Allison on the phone. She grudgingly admitted it was true. “It’s exciting to be here and all,” she said, “but I’m very homesick. I miss my mom and my friends. I just really don’t want to be here, and I wish I could go home.” By running a magnet down Jean’s back, we released the two trapped emotions from Allison. Even though Allison was half-a-world away in Japan, the results were instantaneous.
Before we hung up the phone with Allison, her hip pain was entirely gone. She went on stage the next day and danced without any problem.


Dorene’s Remote Experience

A patient named Dorene wanted to share this story about how remote healing was just as effective for her as being there in person.
I have seen Dr. Nelson intermittently over the last 10 years or so for various problems. I had been suffering for several days with the symptoms of a hiatal hernia, including heartburn and pain. I was really miserable, and I wasn’t getting anything done. My husband, Rick and I were sitting in our family room when Rick decided to make a phone call to Dr. Nelson to see if there was anything that he could do to help me. He found through testing that my symptoms were being caused by a trapped emotion and he treated it. I can honestly say that the relief was instantaneous as we were sitting there and the symptoms completely left me before the phone conversation was over. I highly recommend that people be open to this type of treatment. There are wonderful discoveries available to us today through remote treatments by those who are knowledgeable. - Dorene N.
