Over the years of working I have had so many clients ask me
"What is a cord and why cut it?"
'Cord cutting' is healing the energy connection between you and someone else, even though they may not be living with you, but they seem to be lingering on in your mind or generally sending you undesirable energy.
It may be a past relationship; a work colleague or even a family member, where you wish to stop them draining your energy!
When we enter into relationship with a person, or even business relationships and spiritual 'contracts' of all sorts, an energetic thread or cord is activated, between you and that person and we become "connected."
Over time, as we become aware that these relationships are not enhancing our life, we no longer need or want them to be energetically connected to us.
So for example, I recently worked with a daughter in her 40's, whose Mother is a narcissist. She was worried that cord cutting was going to cut her Mum out of her life and never see her again!
It is not that at all.
Cord cutting means that she is ready to cut the energetic cord connection between them, that's creating negativity, which in her case was manifesting in feeling depressed, hopeless and excessive eating, causing weight gain, leading into the cycle of depression, etc!
So to stop this cycle of negativity, we did a "Cord Cutting" which allowed for the energetic thread that had been created, to be cut, allowing for new beginnings, with new boundaries in place, instead of being trapped in the past negativity.
She contacted me a week later and told me that she had spent the afternoon with her Mum pleasantly for the first time, but had her boundaries firmly in place and decided that she would only see her mum when it suited her and saying "no" was ok.
I also worked with Debra, after her husband left for someone else. After he re-married, he still rang her up to share his worries about their kids and his health, leaving her drained and completely fatigued! The connection of 26 years was a strong energetic cord and it hadn't been cut.
Hannah had a business partner who betrayed her, leaving her with bankruptcy. She was obsessed with finding a way to revenge him. The energetic connection of 6 years together had to be cut.
So, you may be wondering what are the signs for you to know whether the cords need to be cut?
You always feel unwell
You feel stuck and hopeless
When you are in their company or think about them, you feel your energy levels sinking ending up with chronic fatigue
Having feelings of depression, hopelessness
Giving in to unhealthy habits such as – overeating, excessive drinking/drug use or smoking
Going over and over a conversation with someone in your head
Obsessing or seeking out ways to get revenge
You find yourself spying on the other person’s every move
