Do You Have A Heart-Wall?

Did you know that your heart beats 100,000 times every day? That’s more than 36 million times in a year! Daily your mighty heart sends 2,000 gallons of blood flowing through a network of 60,000 miles of blood vessels that feed your organs and tissues.
We now know that the heart’s function is for more than pumping blood. The heart is also an emotional organ and can be thought of as the center of your being – many cultures consider the heart the seat of the soul, where love and creativity reside.

Cardiologists are studying the effects that emotion has on the heart. In a recent study, it was found that arteries responded favorably by dilating when people laughed and constricting when people viewed violent images. I like the idea of laughing being good for our heart – but we already knew this intuitively, didn’t we? That we feel at ease when we laugh, feel joy, and receive or give love. And we feel stress when angry, resentful or sad.

The Institute of Heart Math, a research center dedicated to the study of the heart and the physiology of emotions, has conducted numerous studies identifying the relationship between emotions and the heart. A number of their studies have provided new insight into understanding how the activity of the heart is linked to our emotions and our health, vitality and well-being.

Have you ever been wounded emotionally? Or because of an emotional situation, felt that your heart was aching or even breaking? Dr. Bradley Nelson, developer of the Emotion Code healing technique, believes that when people experience a deep sense of grief, hurt or loss more than a couple of times in their life, that their subconscious mind will form an “energy wall” to protect their heart against further heartache and emotional wounding. He refers to this wall of energy as the “Heart-Wall”.

According to Dr. Nelson, the Heart-Wall blocks us from fully opening our hearts to others. Initially, the Heart-Wall served as protection, but later in life can, if not removed, contribute to you having a harder time being able to give and receive love freely. When the energetic Heart-Wall is removed from the body, the difference can sometimes be felt immediately, but in most cases the change is more subtle and occurs over time. Clients often report that their hearts feel lighter once the last trapped emotion is removed from their Heart-Wall!
