Heart Centering

by Jodi Cohen

I recently started dating someone.

The kind of person I have wanted to attract for a long time.

He’s brilliant, kind, funny, curious, handsome and so thoughtful that I can’t help but smile when I think about him.

And we have so many shared friends and acquaintances that I can’t believe our paths didn’t cross sooner.

But if they had, we might not have been a fit.

Here’s why…

My heart would not have been open to receiving him.


The Practice of Heart Opening

In December of 2021, while attending an event with other practitioners, I over-reacted to an announcement in a way that prompted one of colleagues to suggest that I consider the Emotion Code book to heal my Heart Wall.

I have always struggled with what I termed my own “Goldilocks dilemma” – I often either under-react (too cold) and try to ignore any upset feelings and avoid addressing the root cause or triggering conflict, or in rare cases – like this event – completely over-react (too hot) and feel upset that seems excessive for the situation.

I spent my life striving for the “just right” reaction of acknowledging the upset and problem solving through it in a calm, collected and thoughtful way.

The idea that the Emotion Code – a method of finding and releasing trapped negative emotions stored in the body by the subconscious mind to protect you from further suffering — might assist me in my lifelong pursuit of finding my “just right” prompted me to buy the book immediately.

I read it in a night – as I often do when content interests me and immediately printed out and laminated the Emotion Code chart to help release trapped emotions, like the emotional energy is stored around your heart that can interfere with your ability to give and receive love.

Trapped emotions can keep you stuck in a pattern where you actually attract or repel people, patterns and behaviors that mirror the emotions trapped in the Heart-Wall, resulting in a cycle of unfulfilling relationships and poor health.

Releasing the trapped emotions with tools like the emotion code and essential oils allows you to break old patterns and attract new people, energy and opportunities

I touched on Emotion Code in this post and want to focus today on clearing your heart wall


What is a Heart-Wall?

A Heart-Wall is the emotion code term for the energetic wall consisting of multiple layers of unresolved, unprocessed and trapped emotional energy surrounding the heart.

Trapped emotions are negative emotional energies that we still carry around from past events, traumas or abuse.

They are literally emotional energy stuck in the body which vibrate at different frequencies.  Every emotion has its own energetic frequency.  When emotional energies lodge in the body, the frequency causes an imbalance affecting the organs and tissues where they are stuck, or disturbs your whole energy field, thoughts and mood.

Certain emotions are known to carry a vibration that resonates with certain organs and tissue in the body.  For example, betrayal and grief can commonly be found in the lungs.  Anger tends to land in the liver.  And sadness can live in the heart.

Emotion Code author Bradley Nelson notes that the Heart-Wall is created by the subconscious mind as a protective mechanism to protect the heart from grievous injury – but it often over-functions (like my Goldilocks dilemma) and blocks the good along with the bad.

As you may know, the heart is the most powerful electromagnetic organ in your body, generating 60 to 1000 times more power and electromagnetic energy than your brain.

As your heart is the core of your being, your subconscious mind prioritizes and protects your heart in every way possible. Emotional trauma can prompt your subconscious mind to form an “energy wall” or “Heart-Wall” to shield and protect your heart from grievous injury.  It is made of a collection of trapped emotions which are wrapped, layer-by-layer, around the heart.


What Can Contribute to a Heart Wall

The following experiences can contribute to trapped emotions:

  • Loss of a loved one
  • Divorce or relationship problems
  • Miscarriage or abortion
  • Home, work, or chronic stress
  • Financial hardship
  • Physical illness
  • Internalizing your feelings
  • Self-sabotage or low self-esteem
  • Negative self-talk/beliefs about self/others
  • Physical, mental, or emotional trauma
  • Rejection, betrayal, or abandonment
  • Physical, verbal, or sexual abuse; neglect
  • PTSD / any traumatic event


Heart-Wall Symptoms

While a Heart-Wall can protect you from trauma, it can also interfere with healthy energy flow.

Trapped heart wall emotions can affect physical tissues, organs and overall wellness along an emotional impact, affecting how you think, the choices that you make, and how you react to every day challenges.

Trapped heart wall emotions can cause a variety of emotional and physical “symptoms”, impacting both physical health, like pain, along with emotional problems anger, depression, chronic fatigue, self-sabotage or panic attacks that can impact your relationships, career, or success.  For example, they can block you from finding true love and happiness and make them feel disconnected or lonely.

Some examples of heart wall symptoms include:


  • Lessen ability to give and receive love

  • Feelings of isolation or emptiness


  • Neck pain, shoulder tightness
  • Heart problems, including the physical sensation is referred to as “heartache” that can present as pressure or discomfort in the chest and throat

Clearing a Heart-Wall

It is estimated that 93% of us have a literal wall of negative energy surrounding the heart, made of multiple layers of trapped emotional energy.  The good news is that when this barrier is no longer necessary, your protective shield of Heart-Wall energy can be removed layer-by-layer with a combination of essential oils and Emotion Code.

Emotion Code technique can be used to detect and release trapped emotional energies stored in the body, through the subconscious minds’ desire to protect you from further suffering.

Your subconscious knows and understands everything about you and why you experience specific conditions or deal with specific situations the way that you do.

Every trapped emotional energy is significant in your life.  Each one has had an impact on you in some way or another.  Each comes from a specific time or event that was experienced either by you or someone else that you inherited or absorbed the energy from.  These energies affect you in a variety of ways and create challenges, problems and pains of all sorts, both physical and emotional.

Releasing trapped emotions can help you balance the body so it can regain its full healing capabilities and release or reduce the severity of physical and emotional issues.

When you release negative emotions, you shed what holds you back.  Feeling and experiencing your emotions can feel overwhelming, Emotion Code and essential oils allow you to easily release your trapped emotions without having to get trapped in the story.

Essential Oils for Heart Wall Clearing

Essential Oil can be used to remove emotional toxins, along with physical toxins, to help support your emotional release.  The high frequency of the essentials oils may help to open the subconscious doors and unlock the barriers that stop us from releasing our traumas. The oils oxygenate the cells and bring its blockages to the surface, ready to be released.

Since smell travels directly to the emotional control center in the limbic system, inhaling essential oils releases trapped emotional patterns, including heart wall patterns. Essential oils – with their unique molecular structure – can directly stimulate the limbic lobe and the amygdala where emotional trauma is stored, processed and released.

Each essential oil possesses multiple properties that can support emotional processing and release. The oils in the Heart™ blend in particular may help to balance your heart energy to promote feelings of safety that allow your subconscious mind to release negative stored memories and emotions and replace them with positive beliefs.

Essential oils can also help to release emotions trapped within various organs and tissues of the body.

Heart™ balances the heart to enhance compassion and support, integrate and reset all the systems of the body, including supporting feelings of open-heartedness, expansiveness, receptivity while mitigating loneliness, sadness and grief.

The heart integrates and balances the physical, emotional, and mental body, providing blood to every cell and every organ.  It also serves as a complex information processing center, influencing brain function, the nervous system, hormonal system and most of the body’s major organs.

The heart is our body’s reset button, but a state of constant stress can fatigue the heart and compromise our ability to reset, leading to inflammation, infections, toxicity and heart disease.  By returning the heart to balance, we support the cardiovascular and circulatory system, regenerate the structure of the heart and helping to reset the homeostatic mechanism for the entire body.

Heart™ blend contains a proprietary blend of organic and/or wild crafted essential oils that helps you show love to others and yourself. Research has shown that sweet smells, like those found in the Heart™ blend,  have been shown to reduce pain by activating the opioid receptors in the brain.

To release the trapped emotions or correct energetic imbalance, you can use the Emotion Code to identify trapped emotions, then Heart™ blend over the heart to clear the trapped emotions from your body.
