As someone who is interested in energy healing and holistic health, chances are you’ve heard of the Heart-Wall®. Contrary to what you might think, a Heart-Wall, in the holistic sense, refers to the barrier of emotional energy you build up subconsciously as a means of protecting yourself from the pain of heartache and heartbreak.

Your heart, physically and emotionally, plays a critical role in keeping your body functioning properly and your emotions in check, so it’s important to take care of it. This is critical from a traditional health standpoint in the form of diet and exercise, but also important from an energy healing standpoint. Part of caring for your heart’s energy is to determine whether you’ve put up a Heart-Wall yourself. In this article, you’ll learn just how powerful the Heart-Wall is, how you can work towards releasing it, and what you can do to ensure your heart is free from Trapped Emotions.

The Heart-Wall Effect

Dr. Bradley Nelson, an expert in the field of energy healing, explained that having a Heart-Wall can affect your body in two important ways.

“First, a Heart-Wall may interfere with the free flow of heart energy through the body,” Dr. Nelson said. “This could make it more difficult for the body to heal itself, and may affect you physically; particularly in the neck, upper back, and shoulders. Secondly, a Heart-Wall could interfere with your ability to fully open your emotional heart to others, and manifest abundance and love in your life.”

The heart is capable of generating 60 to 1,000 times more power and electromagnetic energy than your brain, making it the most powerful organ in your body. The heart is understood to be your body’s second brain in the sense that it is continually sending messages to all the tissues of your body, and because the brain in your head is believed to be obeying the messages sent by your heart. Therefore, when your heart is surrounded by the layers of negative emotional energy that make up a Heart-Wall, its ability to send these messages may be diminished, and could even lower your immune function and contribute to disease. In our experience in energy healing, a Heart-Wall can contribute to feelings of sadness, anxiousness, panic, fear, and self-sabotage. Perhaps even more devastating, a Heart-Wall may hinder your ability to give and receive pure love and acts of pure, unselfish devotion. It’s often the latter effect that can prevent you from feeling joy or fostering healthy, successful relationships.

Do You Have a Heart-Wall?

Now that you know a bit more about the science that lies behind this concept, you’re probably wondering if you’re suffering from the negative effects of a Heart-Wall. Fortunately, you probably don’t need to visit a professional energy healer or undergo muscle testing to determine if your heart energy is being impeded. What you might need, however, is the willingness and honesty to complete an open, honest self-assessment.

Analyze your current and past relationships both romantically and likewise, and assess the factors that led to the problems or the failing of these relationships. Did you—and do you—feel numb to the emotional needs of others? Did you—and do you—feel like it’s difficult for you to experience the emotions that allowed you to connect with these individuals? Other common signs of active Heart-Walls to consider may include an inability to feel and express pure joy, to harness creative energy and manifest abundance, and, most of all, an inability to give and receive love or sustain loving relationships.

The Importance of Breaking Down Your Heart-Wall

Clearing your Heart-Wall and getting back to a place where you can genuinely feel loving, caring emotions is perhaps one of the most important aspects of maintaining a balanced and emotionally stable life. Throughout his tenure as an energy healer, Dr. Nelson explains that the results of clearing a Heart-Wall are often vast and profound. From addressing utter despair and crushing anger, to helping previously emotionally-isolated individuals connect to others, clearing a Heart-Wall may help you recover from heartache you may have experienced in the past to find love, joy, and meaning again.

Breaking down the barriers of a Heart-Wall could help you feel emotions, foster energies, and express love that you may have thought no longer existed in your life. It could enable you to live how you’ve always wanted to—with increased vibrancy, wellness, love, and joy.

How to Clear Your Heart-Wall

We believe the Heart-Wall is essentially layers upon layers of emotional energy, also known as “Trapped Emotions.” As such, it’s important to carefully and methodically clear your Heart-Wall as to not further impede you energy flow. Thankfully, with the help of The Emotion Code®, you may be able to quickly and easily dismantle the potentially damaging emotional baggage of Trapped Emotions, and identify and eliminate your Heart-Wall to achieve better wellness, relationships, and abundance.
