Have you ever been injured emotionally? Have you ever felt that emotional
heaviness in your chest like your heart was breaking?
The heart is the center of your being. In fact, research now indicates that the
heart may be a second brain, a brain more powerful than the one on top of your
shoulders. A brain that is fully activated when you are giving and receiving pure
love and acts of pure, unselfish devotion. It is through our heart that we give and
But our hearts are vulnerable to emotional injury. Sometimes trapped emotions
are created in the body, and sometimes these trapped emotions lodge in the heart
Since all things are nothing but pure energy by their very nature, a trapped
emotion is no different, and consists of pure energy.
Well, sometimes your subconscious mind will take that extra energy that is now in
the heart area, and it will literally make a 'wall' with it. Why? To protect your
heart from injury; to keep your heart from being totally broken.
I believe that Heart Walls affect us in two ways. First, they block the heart energy
from flowing through the body; this makes it more difficult for the body to heal
itself, and can cause physical symptoms, particularly in the neck, upper back and
shoulders. Second, they block us from fully opening our hearts to others.
In essence, a HeartWall will make you numb to others and make it more difficult
for you to feel emotions and connect to others. When you realize that the mind
puts the heart wall up to protect us in the first place, it all makes sense, but if
you have a HeartWall, you will have a harder time being able to give and receive
When the Heart Wall is removed from the body, the difference can sometimes be
felt immediately. At other times, the change is more subtle and takes place over
time. One of the main reasons that I teach my BodyCode Seminars, and the main
reason I wrote "The Emotion Code" is the Heart-Wall phenomenon. I can never
hope to clear enough HeartWalls in my lifetime to make a very big difference to
the world. But if enough individuals learn how to release these emotions, many
hearts can be "unlocked", and the level of love and understanding in the world will
increase. In this small way, maybe we really can change the world.
When you have a Heart-Wall, you are not able to give love as well as you might,
because that love energy that is in your heart cannot get out as well.
At the same time, love that is being radiated toward you by other people is
blocked to some degree.
As a result, you can go through your life somewhat insulated from others, because
of the emotional traumas you’ve been through and the subconscious wall that
literally exists around your heart. The traumas were genuine enough and there is
no doubt that they caused more pain than your body thought it could stand to feel
again – that’s why the Heart-Wall made perfect sense at the time. But until you
take it down, you’ll be trapped behind it to some degree, less able to reach out
and connect with people, even the people you love most.
The importance of clearing the HeartWall cannot be overestimated. In practice, I
have found incredibly profound results from clearing the emotions that form the
heart wall. I have seen suicidally-depressed people completely get over their
depression and recover after having the heartwall cleared. I have seen seemingly
unreachable, very angry young people who were getting poor grades turn their
lives around. I have seen the incredible serenity that people regain when they
again feel connected to the people around them. People have even related to us
that for the first time in their lives they can actually feel God's love for them.
