Miranda was an attractive 38-year-old nurse who suffered from chronic neck pain. Due to the trauma from a broken relationship eight years ago, she had no interest in having any kind of a relationship with men anymore. She built a “heart-wall” to protect herself.
When she found the right help to let go of trapped emotions, her neck pain went away, and she reconnected with her childhood sweetheart who had been living around the corner from her for almost eight years.
From Dr. Bradley Nelson’s article: Three Steps to Heal a Broken Heart
“When you are experiencing deep grief, hurt or loss, it may be interpreted as an assault on the core of your being, on your heart. These feelings of heartbreak can be so uncomfortable, so foreign and so difficult to deal with, that they often result in the formation of an energetic “wall” put up to protect the heart from further injury.
“Miranda is a perfect example of how a heart-wall can interfere with a love life. She was an attractive 38-year-old nurse who came to me suffering from neck pain. During the course of my examination, she mentioned that she had not dated anyone in years and had no interest in having any kind of a relationship with men anymore. When I tested her, I was not surprised to find that she had a “heart-wall.”
“Eight years before, Miranda’s heart had been broken in a relationship with a man she had deeply loved. In an effort to protect her heart from experiencing that kind of pain and injury again, her subconscious mind had created a heart-wall.
“In Miranda’s case, three lingering emotions had been trapped in her body for all those years, blocking her from experiencing a loving relationship. She had no idea that these trapped emotions were the major underlying cause of the pain she was experiencing in her neck as well. Her neck pain had been going on for some time, and was considered chronic and even a bit mysterious by the other doctors she had consulted, as nothing seemed to relieve it.
“One by one, we cleared each of these emotions.
“I didn’t see Miranda again for about three months. When I did, she looked incredibly happy. I asked her what had changed and she excitedly said, “Everything!” She reported that her neck pain was long gone. But there was even better news than that.
” ‘Right after I saw you last, ‘she said, ‘I ran into my childhood sweetheart. I hadn’t seen him since elementary school. But it turned out he’d been living right around the corner from me—less than a block away—for almost eight years. We started dating and something really sparked between us. We’re in love! I think he’s going to ask me to marry him.’
“The woman who had come into my office complaining of neck pain and swearing off men was gone for good. She was like a completely new person.
“When their heart-wall is released, people sometimes say it’s like they can finally feel again. They can give and receive love freely for the first time in a long time. In that state, very interesting and wonderful things can happen.”
Ideas for Creating Your Own Miracles
In these Emotional Dark Ages, we have been socialized to repress our painful emotions by burying the pain deep inside. Miranda’s case shows the aftermath of unresolved emotional trauma on our physical bodies as well as our relationships.
Something similar happened in my own life; I too manifested chronic neck pain and loneliness. When we repress our emotions, we are denying an important aspect of ourselves. It’s a form of self-hatred that is rooted in the fear of our unwanted, yet natural emotions.
When Miranda found help to release the trapped emotions from her unresolved trauma, her “heart-wall” came down, and she found that she could give and receive love freely again. The shift from fear to acceptance, which is love, created a miracle that healed her and her life.
Please be open to the possibility that you too can create miracles in your own life. Let your inner wisdom guide you to what you need to make the shifts you desire. For me, Dr. Nelson’s Emotion Code was a good place to start. It helped me to learn how to connect to my subconscious and understand its messages. In the Miracles Toolbox on this site, I also share other tools that has helped me.
May your days be full of miracles!
