THE GUIDE: CORD CUTTING

A ceremonial meditation to dissolve draining negative connexions to recharge your energy + create abundant opportunities . . .

Whenever we make a connexion with someone, especially romantically, we create energetic or etheric cords. These invisible cords of energy connects the person—a friend, a romantic partner, co-workers, and family—to that of our own energetic field. Through our interactions, thoughts, emotions, and mutterings, the activated cords are further strengthened.

Doreen Virtue describes etheric cords as ones that "act like hoses, with energy directed back and forth between both people." These cords are a high frequency communication tunnel in which we share, transmit, and transmute our energy. It's a manner of telepathic dispatch of our thoughts and emotions. 

When these cords are bound in a healthy relationship, they create a source of vibrant energy that elevates our own existent sources and intertwined at the heart. They become a source of rejuvenation, as in the jolt of sudden energy we get despite an afternoon slump when a loved one contacts us. 

In an unhealthy etheric connexion, however, the cord binds and drags us into a pit of lack of control and drainage of energy. This is often why we get tired from speaking, being in the presence of, or even merely thinking of someone we dislike or about whom we have obsessive, grieving, or fearful thoughts. 

Although we forging etheric cords daily, it's highly likely that you will intuitively know the people who feed you energy or steal it from you on constant basis. If you feel your energy is exhausted by someone or you would like to move towards a path of releasing negative patterns or addictions—your own draining cords to yourself—this cord cutting ritual is a tool to incorporate into your healing journey. 

When we cut etheric cords and attached experiences, we allow our own energy source to pool back in to rejuvenate us to open ourselves back up to receiving an abundance of opportunities. We finally rise up from the pits, ground ourselves, and elevate our energy to higher vibrations.

As a precaution: when we sever and release etheric cords that no longer serve us, the other person will often feel it. Although they will not know the source of this feeling or what it is, they will sense an inexplicable void of you or rather your energy. They might call, text, or e-mail you. This happens to me more often than not when I practise a cord cutting ritual. This can pull you into a black hole and back into their negative energetic exchange, especially when it's a romantic partner you're still attracted to but who does not serve you. Do another round of the meditation if necessary until you feel a complete release of their attachments.

Find a space where it's quiet and you feel at ease—this can be in your bedroom, living room, by a spiritual altar, or even in a relaxing bath.

Although it's not necessary, I like to smudge the space with sage or palo santo to clear any negative energies that might affect my meditation.

Take a comfortable seat and gently close your eyes, calling upon whatever universal guide you would like to assist you—G-d, angels, spiritual leaders, your inner guide, et cetera. 

Repeat the following mantra or prayer from Tanaaz Chubb to your spiritual guide, asking for their assistance in releasing this etheric cord that no longer serves you: "Dear [Spirit Guide(s)], I call upon you to help me heal, let go, and cut any etheric cords that are no longer serving my higher purpose. I ask that all cords attached to me that are not alligned with love, light, and positive attention be released. Help me to release them and surround me with a healing light to protect me from future attachments. Thank you." 

Now visualise the person from whom you would like to detach cords from standing or sitting in front of you. Feel the strength of the cord tying you to the person and how they drain your energy but do not judge him or her. Simply feel their affect on your energetic field and sense of self.

Begin to visualise the cord dissolving. I find repeating the prayer multiple times assists me in this process of the meditation. You will now if the ritual has worked when you feel lighter. When you feel at ease, charge yourself and your field by imagining a protective shield of white, healing light tipped in gold blanketing you. 

Gently open your eyes when you're ready and smudge your surroundings again, take a warm bath, drink water, and replenish your renewed self.
