Cords are threads of energy connection between two energy bubbles. Ideally, nothing should be connected to the energy bubble. But cords do happen, it is not uncommon. they should release after an engagement, and in a perfect world, cords would not connect even during engagements. but what fun would a perfect world be?
Most times, cords just.. release, or go away, much like a memory or emotional charge from a situation. Sometimes though, cords are unintentionally or intentionally, left attached. They can impact both sides, drain the recipient, and act like a computer stealth virus..
Cutting them is not too difficult and can help to reclaim your energetic integrity. I’ve talked about that elsewhere, so i won’t go into it again. ( if you’d like, ask me and I will repost the links on releasing cords, or you can check for it under the categories list:)
Cutting cords CAN mean you are no longer attached energetically in any way. That may or may not mean you no longer have physical connection/ interaction with the person. It just means that there is some sort of energetic undercurrent going on that you do not choose to engage in. Like playing tug of war.. it only works when both people hold the rope. By putting down your side of the rope ( cutting the cord), you are saying,nope. not interested. Sometimes the cord originates externally, sometimes internally, sometimes- who knows.. doesn’t matter. The point is, you have a goes-inta.. or affinity.. that agrees, sure.. I’d love to play tug of war.. SO- clearing the cord is only part of the issue. The other half of that, is figuring out what you agreed to, or by what agreement/contract on your side.. you slipped into this dynamic. it could be anything from ” I need to be right” to.. sure, steal my power.. I wasn’t using it anyway… or.. ” the door’s open, go on it”, which “note” you may have left for someone else.. and forgotten to remove..
this does not necessarily mean you have learned the energetic or karmic lesson. You may have to track down the lesson.. but you are now AWARE that there IS a lesson/energetic/dynamic playing out.. which you no longer “find fun.”
Sometimes, yes, you have moved on.. and someone else has a cord into you that simply needs severing.. but, as noted previously.. if the affinity were cleared.. the other person shouldn’t be able to maintain their connection– so its always worth investigating.. or at least doing a thorough bubble-clearing- looking for and “smoothing over” the entry point.. not all work needs to happen on the mental-conscious level:)
Levels of attachment/detachment.. I see no reason why you cannot completely detach from someone energetically. this doesn’t mean you are creating amnesia.. just that it holds no charge, no interest for you, any more.. like crossing paths with an old friend, boss, partner.. and you just kind of shrug, and wonder what you ever saw in them.. or feel a moment of nostalgia, but no real reaction… even if they might want something from you.. you just have no interest.. sort of like someone offering me fast food.. naahh.. or the beer that has been sitting in the back of my fridge for.. 5? years… I don’t hate been.. I just have no interest in it, and it’s kind of invisible.. there, but not really there..
” I wanted to kill them”… yes, just a metaphor– But- something like that, is a huge energetic charge.. and yes, we have all been in those places..
Instead. think of it this way.:
Are you angry at the other person for doing X… ?
Or angry at yourself, for being betrayed, gullible.. etc… ?
Usually the deeper anger and energy, is aimed at ourselves, but projected outward onto the other person….
The deeper level is the one to tend to:)
All these engagements are our teachers.. they are reflecting back to us, things we need to tend. And if/when done well.. this becomes a gift and a power/strength for you..
You know you have really resolved something, when you have gratitude toward the parties involved. You have gained something you might not have, in any other way… whatever that power might be.
And power, is not a dirty word. Being in ones own power, is essential and required.. being in someone else’s power.. not a good thing.. and that is what power, has become about in today’s modern culture.. power is about power-over.. but we need power, our own power.
If someone is able to steal that power.. but you reclaim it– you are stronger, have healed affinities, and gained an ability you didn’t have.. as well as self-awareness and a process you can apply in other situations.. they have “taught you how to fish”…
And once you know how to fish, you have a skill, and can apply that in any waters.
Do you have people who are energy drains? Try cutting the cords.. see what changes?
