Healing Your Heart Walls
"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."
~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Our hearts are vulnerable to emotional injury, and a hurting heart does not feel warm and heartful. Emotions such as sadness, anger, and fear get stuck in the body. And, sometimes emotions, especially grief, can lodge into your heart.
Dr. Bradley Nelson, author of "The Emotion Code," coined the term, "heart wall." Dr. Nelson shares that painful emotions can collect around the heart, building a wall of energy in order to "protect" the heart from further emotional pain.
Yet, a heart wall can adversely affect you in two ways. First, it blocks your heart energy from flowing throughout your body for loving yourself. And, secondly, it can block you from fully opening your heart to loving and receiving love from others.
Heart Wall Exercise
Consider that a heart wall is an emotional shield meant to protect you. When traumatic or negative events impact your heart, a heart wall is created. It is created to block future negative emotions from harming you.
Yet, as time goes by, your heart wall can energetically grow thicker and increasingly hold you back from loving and being loved.
Write about your heart wall: Sense into the hurts you have experienced in your life. Write down any hurtful experience that pop into your mind. Sense what your heart wall is trying to protect you from.
Draw your heart wall: What does your heart wall look like? Envision how thick your heart wall is. Also, imagine what your heart wall is made of. Is it constructed of concrete, bricks, ice, or wire, for example? Draw a picture of your heart wall.
How has your heart wall shut you down? How has your heart wall held you back? What feelings of hurt do you habitually feel? Do you feel victimized, regretful, withheld, guilty or sad, for example?
Ask for heart healing: Ask your intuition how you can start to clear your heart wall. Sense into a small step you can take today to heal your heart.
