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.

    Thanks for the comment, Katie! I haven’t heard of soul ties, but you have made me curious. I will check them out! :)

    Think of this as a tool that comes at a different time chronologically than discovering the etymology of the unhealthy attachment. It’s best used as a ‘how’ tool, though the visualizations may cull from your mind hints as to ‘why’.

    Each tool isn’t meant to eclipse another (such as insight and awareness around why a cord was made in the first place). In other words, we add to our toolboxes, we don’t throw away hammers because we now possess a screwdriver. ;)

    Any healthy dynamic will be marked by sustainability and nourishment for all people involved. Even in situations where the person is, say, a stranger pouring their heart out to you, if you leave the interaction with the intrinsic reward of having helped someone in need then it was nourishing for you (and you could sustain the interaction on that level if it was available to you). If you left the interaction feeling drained then someone else received value at your expense.

    Those are not the only metrics but they’re a good start when gauging if your relationships are healthy for both you and others: do your interactions average out as mutually nourishing (since in any friendship there will be times when one leans on the other and vice versa), and is the relationship energetically sustainable? If not, it’s time to reevaluate how the dynamic is set up, how to make it both of those things, and if it’s not possible how to complete the relationship.

    Basically, you see it through your mind’s eye. I’ve used a pendulum to find cords on my body. A pendulum can also be used to determine what the cord is made of. But, most of the time you can just open your mind and see what pops into it. Ask yourself, what is this cord made of? And take the first image that pops into your head. An energy worker can also help you identify cords of attachment if visualization is new to you.

    I found some helpful videos on youtube regarding cord cutting, like this one:

    I’ve studied cord cutting from a Christian perspective (similar to the soul ties mentioned by someone else), but hadn’t realized there could be multiple cords in place in a single relationship. This was a helpful insight, thanks. It helps to understand the multiple chakras in that sense.

    Also, Joel talked about feeling socially obligated to a stranger on a train or whatever. I think this comes from being groomed as a child to take care of other people’s energy. That also sets up our own expectations for others to take care of our energy. The message seems to be that no one can handle their own energy, that everyone needs someone else who will manage their energy for them. I have to visualize holding my own energy inside my own space in order to resist this dynamic. I’ve noticed people being more attracted to me when I do this successfully—they’re more open to talking with me, more likely to strike up a conversation, or even just to sit near me. It’s almost like they subconsciously recognize a self-contained person as being a place of strength and stability. And so then I have to be careful about who is attracted—many times, it’s people who are looking for energy sources, which is what I was trained throughout childhood to respond to. It was always my job to provide strength and stability to the grownups in my world who couldn’t hold their own uncomfortable, feeling-and-thought energies.

    My problem, though, is that I don’t know how to open up and share energy withOUT being a codependent, one-up-one-down relationship. What does a HEALTHY exchange of energy look like?
