What are “cords” and why should we engage in Cutting Etheric Cords, or as some people say – Cutting Cords?
To start with, the cords are etheric attachments that have connected themselves to your aura, the cords could be attaching you to a person, an object or a situation.
When I say “person,” that person could be a friend or colleague but most often it is a complete stranger you happened to be close to on the train, in the food court, or a classroom situation. The cords not only attach you to the person, object or situation but they also transfer energy from your aura [draining you] to and adding to the other person’s aura, at the same time, there is a transfer the other person’s stress and strain to you.
A sense of anxiety and strain is created in your aura and being. It is possible a sense of obsession or obligation may appear for no apparent reason, this is created by presence of the cords. Obsession and obligation are words that express consumption of energy from your aura and ultimately yourself. This the here and now cord.
Some of cords could be from past lives, where the attachments to those past lives have not cleared, until they are, you are destined to repeat the pattern of the past life over and over.
Tragedy and/or trauma will create cords if the energy fields between you and the deceased are not cleared. I am not saying to forget that person, but realize that holding on to their memory, their life is a way of locking them to you even when their spirit has moved on. These cords can be burdensome and heavy if you do not do anything about them.
Divorces and separations are tumultuous and emotional events, couples that have been close and are unable to recover from the break up can create negative and hateful emotions toward the other, ego becomes involved, fear, hurt, forgiveness, anger also appear. When children are involved, cords between both adults and the child or children can create complex interweaving cords
Something as simple as a friendship or a business association usually starts with positive expectations and as it starts to fail similar negative emotions to the divorce and separation can appear.
It is important to preform cord cutting regularly They keep your energy clear and free. It is important to know that when you cut cords, only negative and fear based cords damaging to your aura are cut, beneficial cords are not and even if they are, the underlying relationship will not be affected.
If you are not attuned to Reiki the process for cutting cards is simple.
Call on and ask Archangel Michael to be present and for his help. He will use his heavenly sword to cut the cords. I personally also symbolically move my hands around my head, shoulders, back and front. This is my way of brushing off any cords he cuts and making sure they fall away.
To clear past life or karmic cords, ask Archangel Raziel to be present and preform the same cord cutting. Archangel Raziel removes fear attachments from your aura.
To replace any energy my aura has lost I ask Archangel Michael to fill me with his “pure white light” and as protection against new cords attaching to my aura, I ask for him to surround me his “protective energy.”
At the end, and it only takes a few moments, I always thank the Archangels for their work.
I do this twice a day at least, first thing when I wake up and when I come home. I will add extra cord cutting when something alerts me, such as a toxic person I have been in close proximity to, or, a situation I am uncomfortable with.
