In this podcast you’ll find:

Cord cutting is a visualization tool used to ensure that relationships are as healthy as they can be.

Chakra Podcast

Cords have a tendency to attach to our Chakra centers

Cords are energetic ties we have with another person or thing.

We have all had a physical cord at one point in life. Our umbilical cord sustained our life.

The umbilical cord was necessary to our survival. So cords aren’t always negative, and we may even see them as a form of nourishment.

Some cords are positive, and some are toxic.

Spirit Release by Sue Allen

A positive cord example would be the cord we create in a pair bond relationship. A loving, supportive cord between two partners. Love passes back and forth along this cord. A transparent, flexible cord between heart chakras. Also a cord between sacral chakras connecting partners sexually.

A solar chakra would not necessarily be beneficial for a couple, especially unidirectional. That may indicate the vampiric absorption of one’s sovereignty by the other.

Some people are draining to our energies. Energetic vampires.

Cording can be one directional or multi-directional.

One directional cording is rarely a good thing.

Co-dependent cords are not nourishing either. They can cause two people to feed off each other.

If you are in one of these harmful cording relationships, and you sever it the other person will usually know and attempt to reestablish contact in an effort to re-cord.

Cut the Apron Strings

Many of us can imagine different things in life we feel are keeping us tethered or obligated. Something we can’t get free of certain things, like an idea or location that is holding us hostage.

Most of us probably have a lot of cords – good and bad.

To cut cords:

  • Once you decide there is a cord attached to you, try to imagine what it looks like. There may be a texture, color, size, etc. Is it old and gnarly? Snake-like and scaley? Or long and sticky?
  • Where is the cord attached? According to Spirit Release, cords usually attached to Chakras. Some Chakra attachments are more common than others; some more dangerous than others.
  • Choose the weapon of removal:
    • Imagine a knife cutting it from you,
    • Visualize throwing the cord into a fire,
    • Use an imaginary shovel to dig it out,
    • Imagine yourself physically pulling it from you like a barnacle,
    • Whatever imagery seems most practical to you.

Use this visualization as a tool you use to shift your mindset.

Cords can reattach if we are not careful. If we are used to the cord, and it is old and gnarly, it may come back, and you will need to cut it again, and maybe again.

Sometimes we get back into old dynamics, and the old muscle memory attaches a familiar cord.

Cord cutting is language that reminds you to go back into that space and helps you to be mindful of how you are attending to your relationships. If you have to go back and cut a cord again, it reminds you of the tendency to get back into toxic relationships, and it keeps you aware of the need for personal autonomy.

With a Chiropractic adjustment, it takes multiple adjustments for the body to realign to its proper position. One cord cutting ritual may do the trick, but it might not. You may have to do it on a regular basis.

We create cords all the time; sometimes with random strangers.

Some personality types are more wired to do this than others. They feel responsible for everyone else’s emotions.

Where are you getting attached to people that may not be necessary?

On some level, we are all part of the dynamic that allowed the cords to connect, and it is up to us to remove the cords as quickly as possible.

If you have a tendency to attach to people, visualize yourself dressed in armor, or a cloak. Armor would be a temporary solution. A cloak protects you against cords that you don’t give permission to, but it is porous enough to allow healthy cords to develop. Like a gatekeeper.

    Hi mentsh, I happened to come here after realizing my own trauma history and read your comments, which resonated a lot with my own experience. I have been processing it with an integration mentor through the framework of the Four People Within by Merja Sumiloff. Merja herself comes from an experience of intense childhood abuse and I found her and her program to be incredibly helpful. Perhaps you could check it out. Wish you the nest

    I really enjoy your podcasts ! This visualisation technique is quite new to me as well as chakras’ theory ! I understand this tool is more about cutting cords for unhealthy relationships but i was wondering if this could also be usted to create bonds for healthy relationships ? Like is visualisation working in this case because cutting cords is an internal process ? And maybe to create cords you have no choice but to interact in the real world and visualisation is not so useful ? Thanks a lot !!

    There are a lot of resources on Google and Youtube. Just keep searching for Guided Cord Cutting and find the one that works for you.

    Okay, this is helpful…it gives me another level to think about what should happen in healthy relationships. My question now might not be relevant to many people, but I need to ask anyway.

    What if all of my relationships require more work than the intrinsic reward I get out of them, no matter how healthily the relationship seems to be structured?

    I have an extensive trauma background, raised in a very codependent/abusive family, and I’ve been diagnosed with Asperger’s. With those 3 strikes against me, I’ve not been able to figure out how to relax around people and just “be myself,” despite many years of counseling/therapy/self-work. Around people, I’m always in performance mode, and managing a great deal of sensory input, and trying to translate inner-world existence into outer-world language. Although I’ve learned to emulate appropriate social behaviors, it never feels natural to me, and other people react in ways that indicate they perceive something is “off” about me, too.

    I understand the whole “be authentic-be yourself” approach. But if I were to truly be myself with someone, I think there wouldn’t be much room for real interaction—I exist too deeply inside myself. And yet, I desperately want to feel connected to people. But then I’m always afraid I’ll fall back into the grabby, codependent-y dynamic of trying to “mesh” with people, so I lock myself down and keep distance from others to protect them from my internal mess.

    I’ve gone around in circles on this so many times in the past few years, I feel completely lost and hopeless. I think I’m too broken for anyone to want to know the real me. I’m in therapy, but my therapist can’t “fix” me. I wish I understood what a healthy relationship is supposed to be, so I could work towards that goal. But I can’t figure out how to get enough access to healthy people for me to observe them and practice relationship with them.
