I'm new here, and everyone has awesome stuff to say and ideas to getting ones mind right (and different things work for different people).
Personally I have found everything that I needed in Napolean Hills Think and Grow Rich. Yeah, that is no surprise, but the truth is when reading it a few times, every single "secret" to changing the way your mind works is in there and applicable to anything in life.
It is time for me to breathe some new life into this old thread. When I finished the articles I wanted to throw out there a couple of methods that could lead to solutions.
I never went on exploring them further into writing mainly because they didnít help me reach the results I was aiming for.
Sure theyíre great methods, and I still believe in hypnosis made by a truly good hypnotist, and the other two can give temporarily releases.But Iíve found a new method
that has done some great and permanent changes to me. Because of that, and because it fits as a continuous part in this article series I wanted to share that with you guys.
The method is called the Emotion Code and it is based upon the same premises as everything else. It is based upon the fact that our experiences and our
interaction with the local environment leaves traces and has an impact on us. The result of that are these so called trapped emotions.
What are trapped emotions? Trapped emotions are trails of feelings we experience in negative situations that are left in our system and are triggered as soon as our mind
identifies a situation that reminds us of that particular event.
For instance, have you ever asked yourself what happens to you when you always give back all that money youíve made so fast and so easy? What really happens is that
your subconscious mind corrects the issue by helping you giving it back to the market. It simply corrects your particular situation
in order to match its programed belief. Letís put it this way in order to throw further light on it. Assume that your father told you when you were a child that money are
to be earned the hard way. Here we have to add that children are very adept to be seeking confirmation from our guides and teachers
because they are the ones that holds the key to our interaction with the local environment in which we strive to become a part of. So together with that statement from the
father comes a need of being confirmed. If we trust and believe that statement we are good kids, and good kids
that behave according to what their parents says get love as a reward.
Is the picture complete now? You make money fast and easy, but that also triggers the emotion connected to that. We all need that confirmation because itís a part of
our designed societal needs and fast money is simply not a match for you (because in your subconscious mind
you still need that confirmation that will get you the reward in terms of affection) hence you give them back! Thatís where the Emotion Code enters into the picture.
It has a built in method that enables it to get feedback from the subconscious mind
making us able to aim for those feelings that are trapped and release them. When theyíve become released that need for confirmation/affection and we get to keep our money
because the subconscious mind is not active in that sense anymore and will not ďwork against usĒ.
Now, will the Emotion Code make us better traders? Yes and no! It is very important to emphasize that trading in itself has very much to do with mastering all the bits
and pieces in the whole trading package, from administration of your trades to your risk management etc. But one thing is for sure, it will
do wonders on the emotional part that is a huge part of trading. With a mastery of everything else in trading that can serve as the dot over the I in many instances.
But please do remember this, all the other puzzle pieces has to be mastered in order to make it all the way in trading.
If we are not doing that it is as if we put an athlete through a form of mind programing but we expect him/her to win without the proper training, systematic approach to wining,
diet, the proper mindset etc. etc. That is impossible right? So keep that in mind please!
What has the Emotion Code done for me? First and foremost it has had a huge impact on my mood. I have let go of an enormous deal of frustration and I have become
a very calm and patient person. It is like I have a sort of built in breaks now that are getting activated as soon as I get frustrated.
Even if I get mad (after all I am human being), my path to calmness has become greatly shortened. And it is not as if I get frustrated and then the thought
comes in telling me I am changed. No, it comes automatically, and it is due to the fact that those emotions
that were triggering that part of my brain/mind are released. My family is the biggest witness to these changes, and theyíre the ones that can truly testify to that because
theyíre the ones that are noticing the change mostly. For me things have become normal this way!
Iíve also got rid of this pollen allergy that has been bothering me for about 15 years. And that wasnít even on my list of things that I wanted to work with. You see, thoughts and
feelings are energy and energy gets stored into our organs. When you free the body from those negative emotions you actually free the organs from that stored energy,
therefore theyíre allowed to regenerate themselves in the proper way leading to recovery.
Oh, Iíve been through a couple of things/methods through the years, among other those 3 Iíve suggested before. The impact from those were temporary and not lasting
at least in my case. I started this work back in April and the changes are still here today, so I can testify to the part where the changes are there to stay!
Iím throwing this out there with myself exposed primarily because I owe it to this community constructed by Big Mike which intentions are to be continually applauded and second
it truly is something that has helped me a lot and I want to share it with my fellow traders that also can benefit from it.
There are a lot of practitioners out there. There might be one in your area or not. Sessions can be done either in person or by phone/Skype. I live in Sweden and I had sessions
over Skype in USA. When I decided to take the step and to employ a practitioner I started by comparing them all in terms
of experience and the value you get for your money. After choosing a couple of them I sent out emails to see what kind of response Iíd get. Some of them contacted me days later,
some didnít contact me at all etc. etc. Iím not gone get into particular reasons of why that happened and so on.
But there was this lady that contacted me very shortly after Iíve sent the emails telling me that she wasnít able to answer my questions right away, but that she wanted to
work with me and that sheíll contact me as soon as sheís able to. And so she did not long after that.
What really made me chose her was that she showed me from the beginning that she cared. Together with that she offered (and still does) most value for the money!
The rest is history and the changes are as Iíve told you above.
Her name is Jill Jolley and she lives in Arizona In case anyone wants to contact her. Here is a link to her webpage: LIGHTBORN SERVICES - Home You can always refer to me (@George)
or to (Big Mike trading) in order to show that you have a traderís background.

Thanks: 14 given,
Thank you George for your continuous updates and sharing your thoughts and experience in this forum.
I have already started the Emotion Code with Jill based on George recommendation in Private, and I am looking forward for the results in the next few weeks.
I will update you with any feedback regardng the emotional code results.
As always George, very well put.
Thank you again for sharing and helping other traders including myself to find a method to over come some of the psychological trading issues, after all trading is 90% psychology and mindset, and one has to be aware of his emotions specialty the negative trapped emotions.
One has to always be aware of his emotions at all time while trading and journal his feelings and where those feeling are coming from(fear Greed, Revenge,anger,being wrong...etc) and to be disciplined enough to stop trading once he is aware of his negative emotion, which will save him tons of money on the long run.
Talk to you soon

I did get some results from the emotion code, but wasn't enough for me.
I managed to find a more powerful tool, where I ended up becoming a fastereft(emotional focused transformation) certified practitioner myself. which is a very powerful combination of tools consists of (EFT,NLP...etc). it works on your belief system, and transforms the past negative experiences and releases the emotions and heals you from the inside out.
The results are amazing, it did transform me inside out, and I continue to use it and help others as well to overcome their challenges in different aspects of their life's including trading.
Hope this helps.

Like so many other traders, I struggle with my emotional state when trading. I reached out to Guss to see if he would be willing to work with me, utilizing what he learned through Faster EFT.
I spent time with Guss on skype and he led me through some Faster EFT exercises that helped me to clear up some emotional baggage I was carrying. I still utilize Faster EFT from time to time, to address issues that come up in my daily life.
Shortly after working with Guss, I stopped trading because I got a job, so I can't say that the Faster EFT methods pushed me over the learning curve of controlling my emotions while trading. But I do feel that the method would be helpful to any trader who is wrestling to reach the 'zone' in their trading. I hope to be able to return to trading one day and believe that Faster EFT will be a very helpful tool for me in my pursuit of becoming a successful trader one day.
