This bustling holiday season marks the end of another year and is a natural time for people to reflect on their lives. It’s a time when we can acknowledge and appreciate connection with others, achievements along the way, and it’s the perfect time to practice the art of genuine gratitude.
Genuine gratitude is an authentic feeling of thankfulness and appreciation that comes from your heart. It involves more than just saying "thank you"; it involves humility, understanding, and a desire to reciprocate or pay forward the kindness or favor received. Expressing gratitude can increase levels of happiness, improve mood, increase health, and overall life satisfaction.
Have you ever noticed that the more you focus on things that you are thankful for, the better you feel? That’s gratitude in action.
But what does it look like if someone doesn’t have the ability to experience gratitude? Many people have trouble expressing gratitude for various reasons: seasonal affective disorder, negative belief systems, mindset, upbringing, stress, or life challenges, etc. Someone might overlook or dismiss the efforts of other’s, often taking things for granted. They might expect favors or help without feeling the need to express appreciation or reciprocate. They might lack empathy toward those who have helped or supported them. Without gratitude, they might focus more on what they lack rather than what they have, which only leads to feelings of dissatisfaction or longing for something more.
A "Heart Wall" in the Emotion Code/Body Code systems refer to a collection of trapped emotions that the subconscious mind uses to surround the heart as a protective barrier or “wall” against emotional pain. This barrier can block the flow of energy through the body making it difficult to heal itself, it can block us from fully opening our hearts to others, and it prevents one from fully experiencing emotions like love, joy, and gratitude.
Love, joy, and gratitude reside behind a Heart Wall so when it is released, it can help individuals access and experience these higher frequency emotions more freely. By removing the emotional blockages and allowing emotions to flow more naturally, people may find it easier to tap into feelings of genuine gratitude, precipitate self-healing, and cultivate deeper connections with others.
Here's how releasing your Heart Wall can help you experience gratitude:
Emotional Well-being: The removal of trapped emotions can alleviate emotional burdens and promote a sense of well-being. This may result in increased emotional resilience and the ability to cope with life's challenges more effectively, with less reactivity.
Physical Health: The removal of trapped emotions can have a positive effect on your physical health. Unresolved emotional issues can increase stress and pain levels, which may significantly impact your physical health over time. Releasing these emotions can support your overall health.
Improved Relationships: Trapped emotions influence our perceptions, beliefs, and behaviors potentially affecting relationships. By releasing these emotions, you may experience improved communication, understanding, and connection with others.
Increased Energy Flow: Trapped emotions can create energetic blockages. By removing these blockages, the natural flow of energy in the body can be restored, leading to increased vitality, well-being, and a greater sense of well-being.
Releasing your Heart Wall can indeed have a profound impact on your ability to experience gratitude. This process can lead to a more open and connected emotional state, enabling you to recognize and appreciate the positive aspects of your life more deeply. This newfound emotional freedom can allow gratitude to flourish naturally as you experience a greater sense of connection, empathy, and appreciation for the world around you no matter what time of year it is.
To your healing!
