Dear Dr. Nelson,
Thanks so much for The Emotion Code. I found that I had a heart wall and it was made of cloth. Intuitively, I asked if it was made of blankets and got a Yes answer. I was curious about that, and then it hit me. When I was a child I had a yellow blanket. I’d put it over my head and body, go into the kitchen, and tell my mom, “I’m the cookie monster, give me some cookies.” (And this was before Sesame Street). I’d made my heart-wall out of yellow blankets. I tried to figure out how many miles thick it was, but that didn’t work. I found out it was 5 blankets thick.
Later, I thought of the following verse from the Bible:
Matthew 5:15 (King James Version) Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
Matthew 5:15 (New Living Translation) No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house.
It seems that the heart wall is the bushel basket. Now that I’m getting rid of the heart wall, I feel that the light and love in my heart is able to shine. It’s so beautiful; thank you!
