Emotions are vibrations of energy that our body produces, and each emotion has its own unique vibrational frequency. When we experience an emotion weather, we are in a difficult situation or not; we go through a three-step emotional experience.
1. Our body generates the emotional vibration
2. We begin to feel the emotion and any thoughts of physical sensations that come along with it.
3. We process the emotion-We choose to let the emotion go, and we move on.
Once we have successfully moved through the emotional experience, we are free to forward. However, when the second or third step is interrupted, the emotional experience is incomplete, and the energy of that emotion is likely to become trapped.
Often the more overwhelming or extreme an emotion is, the more likely it is to become trapped.
When we experience situations that touch the "heart," think things that we often describe as causing heartache, heartbreak, broken-hearted, and sometimes as a result of that painful situation, we go into protect mode. We feel as if we need to put a wall up around our hearts. The crazy part is that is literally what is happening on the inside of us. A wall of emotional energy is being built around our hearts as a form of protection.
Our heart is essential to not just our physical body, but our emotional well being- Our subconscious mind knows and understands this. It is for that reason; our subconscious will protect our hearts from danger or perceived danger. When we are in danger physically, we hide and protect ourselves. Our subconscious mind follows the same logic. When your heart is being hurt or in danger of being hurt, your subconscious quickly responds by building a shelter-a wall- to keep the heart safe. Heart walls are created with the energy of trapped emotions.
I'm not saying-heart walls have no value; they are an invaluable safety measure short term, i.e. when something emotionally overwhelming happens, an emergency barrier can help. For example, you cut yourself on a piece of glass. Your priority is to stop the bleeding and wrap the wound until you can get medical care. The bandaid, bandage, t-shirt, or whatever you had to use to stop the bleeding wasn't intended to be a permeant solution.
When we choose to stay behind the emotional walls we:
When we can release our trapped emotions in general, but in this case, the heart walls, we have the freedom to live a more vibrant, healthy life filled with love, joy, wonder, and authentic connection with others.
Taking the time and effort to go back the acknowledge the emotion and go through the emotional experience, you can eliminate the wall allowing you to live the life you were created to live.
The choice is yours-will you continue to operate at a limited love capacity, or will you do the work required to break down your heart wall (release the trapped emotions that make up your heart wall) so that you can operate at your fullest capacity?
The choice is yours!
