In our series on thoughts, emotions, and emotional baggage, we’ve talked about how emotions become trapped and the way they negatively affect our emotional, physical, and mental health. The next thing we need to discuss is the Heart-Wall.
First, what is the Heart-Wall?
When we experience a great loss or stress—any scenario in which we endure an overwhelming influx of negative emotions—we often also experience “heartache”. This heartache is a physical sensation, pressure, and discomfort that occurs in the throat and chest area. When this happens more than once, the subconscious mind begins building an energy wall, made of trapped emotions, around the heart in order to protect it from further damage.
Dr. Bradley Nelson discovered the Heart-Wall in 1998 during a conference on magnetic healing he attended with his wife. He found there are layers to the Heart-Wall just as there are layers to an onion. We are able to measure the symbolic thickness of it as well as the symbolic material of which is it made. It is believed that 93% of people have a Heart-Wall as the result of trauma they’ve experienced.
Why is this important?
The heart is the most vital organ in the body. If the heart and the brain were to lost contact, the heart would continue beating. Remarkably, the heart produces 60 to 1000 times more energy than your brain! Ancient cultures understood this much better than we do today. They considered the heart to be the core of our person, the source of our love and creativity, and the seat for our soul. The Bible reinforces this concept several times in Scripture. Proverbs 23:7 reads “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” Proverbs 4:23 says, “Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life.” Even then it was well understood how vital the heart was to a healthy existence.
What happens if you have a Heart-Wall?
Thanks to the magnetocardiogram, we also know that the heart emits a strong magnetic field that assists in communication with other people. The magnetic field is, on average, twelve feet in diameter. When an individual feels love for another, the magnetic waves from their heart become visible in the brain waves of the person for whom they have affection and their heartbeats will often sync. The negative emotions that make up the Heart-Wall distort these electromagnetic signals and makes it difficult or impossible for the other person to receive the purity of love coming from our heart.
As a result, a Heart-Wall can cause isolation, depression, and the inability to feel emotions deeply. It can also make it difficult to access the abundance of creativity and passion a person possesses. Physical side effects of a Heart-Wall include neck, shoulder, and back pain, as well as lowered immunity. It may also play a role in blood pressure, heart disease, heart attacks, chest pain, and respiratory problems. It also keeps the heart from being able to communicate with the brain properly. This relationship between the brain and the heart is one we are only beginning to understand, but we know that the communication that the heart gives and receives is vital to emotional and physical health.
