Do You Have a ‘Heart Wall’?

Mar 30, 2020 08:00AM ● By Desiree Punla

The heart is at the center of our being. It emits an electromagnetic field that extends approximately 15-to-25 ft. in all directions, interacting with other surrounding electromagnetic fields emitted by people, animals, plants, etcetera. The heart intelligence acts as the hub of our emotions and enables us to expand human consciousness ( As it is easily vulnerable to emotional distress, the heart houses our innate ability to give and receive love.

It is common to feel the need to protect ourselves from vulnerable situations. Experiencing overwhelming emotions from a traumatic event over a period of time affects our quality of life, causing significant damage to our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing. Unfortunately, many people would rather neglect these emotions than acknowledge them completely, and they then become trapped in the body.

Some emotions may lodge in the heart, or start to create a protective and energetic barrier called the “Heart Wall”. This may sound advantageous, however, having a Heart Wall does more harm than good: Instead of deflecting any impending negative experiences, it may create more.

Layers of the Heart Wall are usually composed of negative emotions that can inhibit the heart’s healing flow of energy thus hindering the body’s ability to heal itself. Over time, it can cause physical symptoms, particularly in the neck, upper back and shoulders. The Heart Wall can also restrict us from fully opening our hearts, making it difficult to connect with others.

Let’s consider an experience we may encounter when involved in a romantic relationship. In the past, we have endured several traumatic experiences  causing us to trap emotions—for example, anger, resentment, shame and worthlessness. Each of these emotions has created a layer in our Heart Wall. Thus, anytime our partner sends us love, this energy has to travel through our Heart Wall in order for us to receive it. By the time their loving energy passes through each layer, the signal has already been distorted. Consequently, we feel the negative emotions associated with those layers rather than feeling the truth of their love. As a result, we begin to question their love for us, possibly erupting into an argument. What could have been a beautiful experience has quickly diverted into an unpleasant one, potentially adding on more layers to our Heart Wall.

Having a Heart Wall hinders our ability to give and receive love and feel other positive emotions. As a result, neglected emotions often lead to feelings of entrapment that can fester over time, creating more toxic emotions such as anxiousness, isolation, sadness, fear and other emotional challenges. It is extremely beneficial to release any negative emotions that have the potential to form a wall around your heart in order to experience more positive outcomes and feelings associated with the true depths of love.

Testimonial from a Client

“Growing up—and until this point—I have struggled with being vulnerable, admitting my wrongs, and selfishly had a mindset of ‘me-first’, which ultimately was not sustainable in any relationship (specifically with my fiancé). Just recently, my fiancé and I encountered an issue that required me to step back from my feelings and put myself in his shoes. Typically, this is not my approach in problem solving as I am an Aries... and will fight it to the very end! However, after releasing my Heart Wall, I was compelled to push my urge to fight aside to better understand him. This was surprising, because throughout my life I have always fought to prove my point and always be right. However, since the session, I have been more attuned with my partner and with myself. I have let my guard down and I am slowly, but surely, admitting to my wrongs. My mindset has shifted to being able to think about my partner's emotional wellbeing instead of my ‘me-first’ approach. Needless to say, my fiancé was surprised, thanking me for finally being able to set aside my pride and become more empathetic towards him. Coming out of that conflict, I felt lighter and proud of myself for being able to let my guard down and actually try to understand him for once.”

A Heart Wall can be identified in an Emotion Code session through muscle testing, a noninvasive practice of tapping into the subconscious in order to access information. Energies that we carry are either positive or negative; thus, your muscles are tested based on their natural response and resistance to these energies. Once a Heart Wall is identified, each layer of trapped emotions is identified and released with healing light energy (
