Welcome to the age of the heart (1),
to the age where we "resonate with" instead of intellectualise our life through. Where intuition becomes our primary guide, allowing us to access deep states of flow and synchronistic life experiences so we can thrive. Where love, creativity, performance, abundance and so much else becomes readily available as the remembrance to tap into the unexplored depths of the heart space is activated in All. Where flowing with the natural erosion and renewal cycles of everyday life begins to feel easier, too.
Revolutionary scientific discoveries from the last 30 years or so about the heart have just begun to make popular science headlines, encouraging us to shift the way we perceive it and its role in the body. In the section below, I present assimilable take-homes needed to grasp the importance of the heart as an organ, and the implications that this has for the metaphysical heart and for the Heart-Wall.
The Heart-Wall, as an energetic fortification around the heart unconsciously built to prevent hurt and pain to be felt too intensely, is one of the most acclaimed discoveries associated with the Emotion Code. It is often my first port of call working with clients, because it so greatly affects the deep yet subtle biochemistries of our bodies, 24/7. I expand on this key notion in the section further below.
NEW SCIENCE FUNDAMENTALS
The heart is now well established academically as the most powerful, electromagnetic organ in the body. Here's a snapshot of what modern science has gathered about it, and why this may be relevant for you visiting this page today.
We now know that the heart generates at least 60 to 1000 times more power and electromagnetic energy than the cranial brain, in a doughnut-shaped field extending up to three metres past our bodies, called the torus field.
With neurocardiology and the discovery of a network of more than 40,000 specialized neural cells in the heart in 1991, scientists then showed that the heart can not only work independently of the cranial brain, but also sends commands to it and to every cell in the body, with every heartbeat. It can literally "think" for itself (think of transplant stories, where transplant recipients would sometimes receive the affinities and memories of the donor, along with their new heart)

It has also now been established that the heart and the cranial brain/ the mind can actually function together as a powerful system regulating everything from our ability to embrace change in a healthy way, to reduce stress, access advanced states of creativity, enhanced perception and super-learning (2). When in a fully coherent, also called harmonised-, state, the heart-brain complex was even seen capable of signaling new, non-coding gene expression (3) and to insulate our bodies from the typical breakdowns from aging (4). One can access this through the self-regulation of low-frequency signals between the heart and the brain, through the practice of meditation, breathwork, myofascial release and heart space opening amongst other techniques (5). If the "altered states" industry is in full bloom today, it is thanks to these discoveries. Some of the highest performers in the world have already been harnessing elevated states of consciousness, for the past 10 years or more, to unlock their full human potential, solve critical challenges and outperform their competition (6).
Electromagnetic frequencies radiating from the heart and directed at others have also been detected, regardless of physical distances, in the magnetic brain waves of the recipients. So when a person felt love or affection for another for example, the heartbeat of the person sending that love or affection was scientifically measurable in the brain waves of the recipient. This was shown to trigger positive, healing effects on their bodies, too (7)
So can you see just how powerful an open heart truly is?
Electromagnetic communication takes place between all of us, all the time, and the energy of the heart - of that central rose, in the core of our beings - is our very own, powerful broadcasting tower within. I've made it a central pillar of my practice and brand design because to me, this rose energy is to the fullest degree, the key to regaining our sense of wholeness, our wellbeing and our health.
But what if the heart energy isn't flowing as it is meant to? What if there is a Heart-Wall?
"The Heart-Wall - a very real production of our subconscious mind - has been one of the most important discoveries in energy medicine.
It is estimated that 93% of us have one today (8), which shows why so many of us are still anchored in the old, evolution-based beliefs of competition and survival.
For I have witnessed changes in mine and in the lives of many families, I believe that abiding in our fully open, Heart-Wall-free hearts will enable a more loving, abundance-minded, united human perspective. That it will give the empathy and compassion necessary for creating cross-cultural understanding and trust on the planet, for the generations to come.
Opening hearts is my specialty.
I just love the (very tangible) ripples it creates across the cosmos."

"by removing Heart-Walls we have seen cases of severe depression eliminated once and for all. We have seen marriages saved, abuse stopped, and lives turned around. We've seen beautiful, loving relationships begin. We've seen kids make better choices. We've seen peace restored."

At some point in our lives most of us will experience a time when we feel heartbroken; a feeling of pressure or discomfort in the chest and throat that may occur when we perceive someone to hurt us or when we experience a deep sense of grief or loss. That's when the deepest part of us, the heart, becomes wounded. Often times the subconscious will use the energy of clustered, low-frequency trapped emotions (such as sadness, betrayal, grief, etc.) to form an energetic barrier or wall around the heart and shield it from further or repeated distress and hurt, This fortress around the heart is what's known as the Heart-Wall. It is very real, and can be extremely dense - acting as a filter or a distorted lense through which we will then perceive the rest of our life experiences until it is cleared.
Whilst it's a good thing we have this protection mechanism when we need it, I believe that the effect of living with a Heart-Wall in the long run is damaging, for reasons which build on the science described before.
Here are key elements to integrate about it, and why you should consider clearing it.
First of all, Heart-Walls can block the electromagnetic signals from the heart from flowing unhampered within the body: to all cells, and to the cranial brain especially. This can make it more difficult to reach a coherent or "digest and repair" state (as opposed to fight or flight) required for the body to heal itself, and it can cause physical symptoms, particularly in the neck, upper back and shoulders - leading to heart disease and other heart problems down the line, too. In addition, we may have more difficulty "following our heart" and connecting to our life purpose - we simply can't "hear" everything our heart has to say. In sessions focused on the Heart-Wall, I will often ask and can relay to you, at what percentage capacity your heart's messages are reaching other organs and glands intact at. We can then monitor progress as we move through the layers, and ultimately re-establish a 100% connection.
Heart-Walls can block the heart energy from being emitted unhampered out of the body. The electromagnetic signals sent by the heart have to move through a dense wall of negative energies before reaching "the outside world", which means the original information is filtered and distorted to one degree or another. You may for example feel suceptible to being misunderstood by others, or feel as though your intentions are often miscontrued. This can make it more difficult to open our hearts to others and to give love freely. Concretely also, if the dominant trapped emotions around your heart are that of rejection in work, heartbreak after a separation, or fear of financial lack, then this is the tonality that the signals you are emitting will take on once they've passed through the Wall. This is what you unconsciously will communicate to your outer reality, and by Universal law, what you in turn will see reflected back to you. You may therefore be keeping a new job or partner at "arms length" unwillingly, because of that baggage stored in your subconscious is being picked up on by others subliminally. I have seen it manifest many times in my career as a practitioner; Heart-Walls do greatly tamper with our abilities to attract success, abundance, and a love mate or long-term partner.
Finally, Heart-Walls can block and/ or distort much of all external signals from reaching the heart itself, hindering our ability to receive love, energy healing and feel other positive emotions. If many of those layers are trapped emotions of rejection for example, then we'll have a tendency to look at our interactions with others through the lense of rejection - jumping to conclusions about someone's intent, or having more difficulty grasping their perspective. It can greatly impact our perception of reality (9), and can therefore contribute to feelings of loneliness, of disconnection to others, of depression; of being unwilling to change or forgive; or to more readily experience misunderstandings, prejudice or hatred.
