Dr. Nelson on Heartwalls -
Sometimes trapped emotions can become lodged around the heart,
and can create a 'Heart-Wall.'
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 area.
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 love freely.
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.
