Cutting the cord is not as simple as it appears. Every action has a consequence – that is karma for you; and who wants a bad repercussion from a careless action?
When someone needs to be released from so-called toxic relationships or relationships that no longer serve any purpose, I frequently hear the advice of cord-cutting.
Cutting cords with another person who has a significant role in one’s life, which is always the case for those who want to do a cord-cutting ritual by themselves, is, in my opinion, the least thing one should do.
The umbilical cord that connects a child to its mother at birth can be compared to the energy cords we form with people in our lives. The connection between the baby and the mother exists even after the umbilical cord is severed.
According to some psychics, energy cords run from one person’s solar plexus to another person’s solar plexus (also known as the third chakra and located below the rib cage, between the heart area and the navel).
However, I believe that there are various body parts where energy lines can connect, such as the area between the brows…these attachment points can transmit thoughts or serve as pathways for mental suggestions. Attachment points include the back of the head, the base of the skull, the crown area, the tips of the fingers, the throat area, and the toes – actually, the entire body. In other words, when there is attachment, an energy cord is formed.
Hence, one is not only forming or attaching cords to other humans, but also to animals/pets, objects, and places. Because energy cords do not age, they can transcend time. MY belief is that energy cords formed with a person, object, or place during a specific time period remain and can even become stronger the more you dwell on them.
Terms of disengagement
Cord cutting is something I’m aware of in some native cultures. In my opinion, the word “release” should be used instead of “cut,” because cutting is the same as applying force. While releasing can be gentle and subliminal, there is no such thing as gentle in cutting.
Another term that can be translated into action is “loosening the cord,” because it requires thought and care. The purpose of that connection remains the same, but the limitations you place on yourself as a result of that connection are lifted, similar to letting go of something you’ve held on to for too long.
I would rather release or loosen the energy cords than cut them because the latter may isolate us from the people from whom we are cutting cords, especially if these people have been placed in our lives to support us in our soul’s growth (example, parents, siblings, godparents, childhood friends, etc.).
Some causal relationships, such as people you meet at work, clients, and so on, I believe we can safely detach ourselves from. Nonetheless, the strands of energy created by these brief but meaningful encounters will persist, and their strength or weakness will be determined by how we perceive them to be.
Even so, we must guard against unpleasant or harmful relationships. If we are approached by someone who appears toxic or who wishes us harm, we must avoid engaging with them so that the energy cords formed are too weak to survive and eventually fall away.
The more we engage; the more we regard the person, our relationship with them, and the more we feed our frustration and anger, the stronger our energy bond with them becomes.
Change your response to situations in your relationship
How about cutting cords with Ex-partners? You certainly can, but consider healing the connection instead. When you do this, it does not imply that you are reconciling with them or that you are becoming friends with them again.
In fact, you are not even required to forgive them. All you have to do is acknowledge the connection and recognize that the cord isn’t perfect and isn’t meant to be strengthened. You may also concede that the cord has served its purpose and that you are distancing yourself from the ex.
Continue with your lives and stop feeding energy into the connection by reminiscing about the past. The goal is to weaken the cord by depriving it of (your) energy.
Strong emotions and thoughts are transmitted via these energy cords.
Unfriending or unfollowing them on social media is one way some people prove that they have cut ties with others with whom they have affinities. Some claim it works, but I have my doubts. More often than not, the connection is revisited with fresh eyes after healing, forgiving, and forgetting of past hurts.
Use your intuition before allowing deep attachments
When you stop paying attention to casual attachments, if they ever introduce cords, they can wither or drop away. You don’t give energy to anything that isn’t important to you.
People with bad intentions can sometimes use those cords to harm us. These cords, however, are not like tentacles that will simply grab us. Each of us has an etheric shield – our double – that guards us against such threats.
This etheric shield must be cleansed in a variety of ways, including meditation, deliberate intent to cleanse or heal your energy field through prayers of protection and guidance, and even acts of charity, to name a few.
Releasing connections through divine intercession
Praying this 9-day Novena to the Blessed Virgin Mary, titled Mary, Undoer of Knots, is one of the safest – if not the safest – ways of releasing unwanted connections.
Dearest Holy Mother, Most Holy Mary, you undo the knots that suffocate your children. Extend your merciful hands to me. I entrust to You today this knot [mention your request here] and all the negative consequences that it provokes in my life.
Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me.
Virgin Mary, Mother of fair love, Mother who never refuses to come to the aid of a child in need, Mother whose hands never cease to serve your beloved children because they are moved by the divine love and immense mercy that exist in your heart, cast your compassionate eyes upon me and see the snarl of knots that exists in my life. You know very well how desperate I am, my pain, and how I am bound by these knots. Mary, Mother to whom God entrusted the undoing of the knots in the lives of his children, I entrust into your hands the ribbon of my life. No one, not even the evil one himself, can take it away from your precious care. In your hands there is no knot that cannot be undone. Powerful Mother, by your grace and intercessory power with Your Son and My Liberator, Jesus, take into your hands today this knot.
[Mention your request here]
I beg you to undo it for the glory of God, once for all. You are my hope.
O my Lady, you are the only consolation God gives me, the fortification of my feeble strength, the enrichment of my destitution, and, with Christ, the freedom from my chains.
Hear my plea.
Keep me, guide me, protect me, o safe refuge!
Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me.
