Dismantle the Wall Around Your Heart

Tearing down a Heart-Wall can make a big difference in your ability to experience love, for Valentine’s Day and the rest of your life

Valentine’s Day is a time for celebrating love, but what if you have lost someone you love? Heartbreak is not just an expression for the strong emotions we feel surrounding loss. It is a very real condition that can damage your health and even lead to premature death.

You may have heard about a study from the UK a few years ago that found that bereavement doubles a person’s chances of dying of a heart attack or stroke. You can probably remember a time in your life when you thought your heart was going to break. That sensation may have felt like an elephant was sitting on your chest, or that you couldn’t breathe. These are common physical sensations that result when your heart — the core of your being — is suffering from a deep trauma.

In the ancient world, the human heart was thought of as the seat of love, the seat of the soul, the core of our being, and the source of our creativity. New research is beginning to reveal that the heart functions more in these ways than we have imagined. For example, heart transplant recipients often report strange symptoms, including changes in their music, food, and entertainment preferences, as well as handwriting changes. Some even reported receiving memories that were not their own.

There are thousands of stories of “cellular memory” like these. How is this possible? The answer may lie in new technological developments. It has been proven in the laboratory that your heartbeat becomes instantly measurable in the brain waves of another person when you are focusing love and affection on them. There is an invisible communication going on between us that we had never been aware of before.

While people suffering from heartbreak can experience physical and emotional symptoms, there is another condition we call a Heart-Wall that can keep people cut off from others and harm their ability to form deep and lasting relationships.

When you experience deep grief, hurt, or loss, it may be interpreted as an assault on the core of your being, on your heart. These feelings can be so uncomfortable, so foreign and so difficult to deal with, that they often result in the formation of an energetic “wall” put up to protect the heart from further injury.

Heart-Walls are made up of Trapped Emotions, unresolved feelings from past traumatic and troubling events that lodge in the physical body and go undetected for years or even a lifetime.

While a Heart-Wall may protect you from experiencing bad feelings, it also keeps out good feelings. Conversely, your love, desire, and happiness may get trapped behind that Heart-Wall. A Heart-Wall doesn’t just hurt you; it can hurt those around you who need your joy and love.

Over the years we have worked with countless people suffering from Heart-Walls, leading us to conclude that this condition is a widespread cause of loneliness, isolation, and relationship troubles. I’ll share an example:

Miranda was an attractive 38-year-old nurse who came to me suffering from neck pain. During the course of my examination, she mentioned that she had not dated anyone in years and had no interest in having any kind of a relationship with men anymore. When I tested her, I was not surprised to find that she had a Heart-Wall.

Eight years before, Miranda’s heart had been broken in a relationship with a man she had deeply loved. In an effort to protect her heart from experiencing that kind of pain and injury again, her subconscious mind had created a heart-wall. In Miranda’s case, three lingering emotions had been trapped in her body all those years, blocking her from experiencing a loving relationship. She had no idea that these trapped emotions were the major underlying cause of the pain she was experiencing in her neck as well. Her neck pain had been going on for some time, and was considered chronic by the other doctors she had consulted, as nothing seemed to relieve it.

Fortunately it is possible to dismantle Heart-Walls. By using techniques described in The Emotion Code® and The Body Code™ energy healing systems, you can take steps to release a Heart-Wall. You can learn the basics about how these methods work to identify Heart-Walls, and the Trapped Emotions that comprise them, in the webinar Discover the Emotion Code: Energy Healing 101.

These are the methods we used to help Miranda uncover and let go of the Trapped Emotions that formed her Heart-Wall. One by one, we cleared each of these emotions. I didn’t see Miranda again for about three months. When I did, she looked incredibly happy. I asked her what had changed, and she excitedly said, “Everything!” She reported that her neck pain was long gone. But there was even better news than that. “Right after I saw you last,” she said, “I ran into my childhood sweetheart. I hadn’t seen him since elementary school. But it turned out he had been living around the corner from me, less than a block away for almost eight years. We started dating and something really sparked between us. We’re in love! I think he’s going to ask me to marry him.”

The woman who had come into my office complaining of neck pain and swearing off men was gone for good. She was like a completely new person. When a heart-wall is released, people sometimes say it’s like they can finally feel again. They can give and receive love freely for the first time in a very long time. In that state, very interesting and wonderful things can happen.
