Cord Cutting

cut-energy-cords

Every contact we have with someone, particularly when it is emotionally charged, and very strongly so if it is sexually charged – forges a cording of energy between two people. These can become very strongly entrenched in our energy bodies and subsequently, our physical bodies. Periodically cutting cords — especially when we feel we are thinking of the person too frequently, mentally looping incessantly whether at our own urging or the other person’s, distracted or tired (energetic cords can and will drain us), experiencing emotions or thoughts that feel mildly foreign to us, or generally stuck or held back in life – is a healthy, regular spiritual practice to employ.

It is an energetic fact that cords are created between people in relationship. This includes nuclear families, friends that we are close to, co-workers and lovers. Having empathy for someone without discharging the other person’s energy, can create cording to us.

Healers must be extra careful and vigilant because cording can occur with clients if you aren’t aware.

It’s less about cutting the cords than letting go of the proverbial tug-of-war rope. Releasing. Laying it down. So if the instructions for severing of these cords feels harsh to you – consider the laying down, releasing any taught-ness to these cords as might occur if you laid down a rope that you’d been pulling on.

Instructions for cord cutting:
• Get into a calm, clear space as if you are going to meditate.
• Reduce distractions for the next 10 minutes
• Close your eyes (this helps you get into the alpha brain wave state more quickly where your subconscious gets to be affected in positive ways by this exercise)
• Breathe easily and rhythmically, slowing down your heart rate
• Call in Archangel Michael (he wields and mighty sword that is very effective in this process, see graphic above)
• Ask him to cut all cords of connection with either anyone draining your energy or a specific person.
• Breathe and relax while in your mind’s eye you watch him cut the cords.
• Pay attention to how your body feels and what area of your body feels affected by this – where you may feel tension, a release, relaxation, warmth, coolness, sharp pain, etc.
• When the process feels complete, then ask for healing and loving white light to be brought in to fill any cauterized cords or spaces left open by this process of cord cutting. If you saw cords being pulled out by their roots allow the white light to fill all of these spaces.
• Finally, see/feel your entire being begin to fill with white light and watch it extend beyond the lines of your physical body out into your aura.
• Mentally express gratitude and thanks and feel free to move about your day.

I’ve been going through a breakup this month….a breakup with a 20 year old habit. As I break up with the one – replete with the on-again and off-again qualities that we’ve all experienced around breaking up with people, I’m examining other old habits as well.

It really doesn’t matter what the habit is – it can be self-judgment, a particular view of or relationship with food/alcohol/caffeine, procrastination – it does not matter what form the habit takes. It isn’t necessarily a ‘negative’ or ‘unhealthy’ habit either – this is about examination of and opening up to ways that may serve our souls more deeply and allow us to serve the world more expansively.

What I’m loving about this process is the level of examination that is taking place. None of it goes as deeply as you may imagine – which is the beauty of this.

I arrived at this place, out of the blue really, but certainly while listening to my intuition. I noticed when I went to engage with this habit, somewhere around the end of January, my desire/motivation/attitude towards this behavior felt different to me. I’m a big ‘feeler’, you see, being a strong Empath (go here for more information on being an Empath https://energyintuit.wordpress.com/2014/03/29/empathy-vs-intuitive-or-psychic-empathy/)

What I began to do then, was to treat these shifted feelings as new friends and turn them over like fall leaves deserving much attention for their vibrancy and color. Simply observe them and then move on to new feelings that came with those and do the same.

I stayed out of analysis and judgment of me, my habit, my relationship to my habit – I merely observed it all as if I was getting to know a new person whom I knew nothing about.

As I really listened and watched, I learned that the absence of this habit – or the prospect of its absence, allowed for some beautiful spaces in my life and being to allow other things to take root. To allow other emotions, other high-vibrational states of being and feeling good, room for other intuitive messages to pop through.

I read recently that if we aren’t losing friends then we aren’t growing. I would re-frame it to say that if we aren’t changing our relationships to friends, habits, the world then we aren’t growing. We aren’t meant to stay in stagnant relationship to anything or anyone – we are meant to grow and change and evolve as spirits in human bodies.

You might examine a breakup with an old way for yourself. Get quiet, tune into your intuition and see what comes up in your life as wanting attention. It may be that some of your ways are up for transformation vs. an ending. Check it out. Enjoy the process!

Many are asking me, how I distinguish between an Empath, a Healer, an Indigo and a Seer – lenses that we are picking up and looking through in a new program called Spiritual Spy Glass, which launched earlier in the month. The program has a rolling enrollment – meaning you can jump on at the beginning of each month. You can find more information on the program here: www.energyintuit.com/ssg . This post is the second in a series of four on the nuances of these sensitivities, these qualities at an intuitive level.

The Healer is an extension of the Empath http://wp.me/p2vm4l-8b . Many Empaths are Healers, not all Healers are Empaths. We feel and intuit others’ emotions through our gut – our second or sacral chakra. The Healer works a bit higher up, through their fourth chakra or heart chakra. All healing is the transmission of love. Our hands are governed by our heart chakra. Through the ages all religions have stories of hands on healing and the miracle of laying-on-of-hands, Jesus Christ being one of the most famous and infamous of healers. Many debates go on around his healing abilities – whether it was genetic, vs. channeling the Holy Spirit, vs. channeling Usui Reiki.

The Healer archetype has been around at least as long as Man has been. Currently we see this archetype in caring and nurturing professions–Physicians, Acupuncturists, Massage Therapists, Dentists, Counselors, etc. It seems that Reiki can be found fairly pervasively now too and hundreds of alternative energy healing modalities abound. Healers are found in all walks of life really. You may feel the healing nature of your lawyer, of a stranger who you sit next to on the subway or that from a toll taker on the turnpike. There are no ‘professional’ limits to the Healer.

As Healers we naturally and intentionally channel divine, healing energy. Healing someone from an ungrounded state, essentially pulling and giving of our own life-force energy or chi – is a big no-no. This is a fast way to illness and exhaustion. It’s important to realize and then act from a place of being a conduit, channel, vessel, or as Shamans would say act as an empty bone, to flow this energy through you to others.

One of the tricky parts – so many people walk around having no idea or a mild idea that they are a Healer and so may feel physically compromised, drained or tired as a result.

Indicators of the Healer archetype (if you have any of these you too may be a Healer):

  • If you are an Empath or check here: http://wp.me/p2vm4l-8b
  • You are near someone in distress or ill and you feel your hands or other parts of your body tingle
  • You feel peoples’ emotions in your heart both positively and negatively
  • People tell you they feel better being around and with you
  • You have a sense, thought, feeling that someone needs you and you reach out and find it to be true
  • You are asked for advice, often
  • You have been told that you have a sensitive system
  • You know you have a sensitive system based on how you react to food, drugs, chemicals, substances, etc.
  • You feel anxious
  • You naturally know what will make yourself and others feel better and it likely involves some form of grounding
  • You seem to hear the calls of those in need and feel them in your body
  • You have an interest in all things alternative, paranormal, supernatural
  • You seek medical attention for headaches, heart palpitations or other medical maladies which turn out to be un-diagnosable

If you know you are a healer and/or suspect that you are, begin to pay attention to your body and particularly your hands when you are in a caring or nurturing type situation. If you have or are experiencing anxiety or a strong desire to express – to run or move, to paint, to write, to sing, etc. – please do move and/or express. This is one of the best ways to clear what is a build of up healing energy inside of you.

We’re channels for this energy and if we’re unaware it can clog up our subtle energy body. Therefore expression, exercise, rest, time in nature, water and healthy foods along with salt baths can relieve some of this. Allowing healing and empathic energies to clog up our subtle energy bodies is akin to dirty oil in your engine or atherosclerosis in your body – keeping these channels clear will benefit our health.

As long as you are approaching the expression of this energy from a grounded place (go here for more information on grounding: http://wp.me/p2vm4l-6A) feel free to place your hands over your loved ones, pets or the earth and apply some healing to their/the situation! It really is this simple. Get grounded, set an intention that you are a vehicle for healing, check your ego at the door and apply your loving hands.

As a Healer you are becoming aware of these sensitivities for a reason. The world needs as many nurturing, healing people as it can get!

This will get you started in identifying and discerning whether you are a Healer and how to work with your sensitivities.   For more information sign up and tune in for this upcoming, free webinar entitled: The Heart of the Healer, 5/1/14 at 7pm EDT By opting into this email list — http://eepurl.com/QuXfL you’ll receive the free webinar log-in information and information about the upcoming webinars to be held in support of the Indigo and the Seer.

During the The Heart of the Healer I’ll cover more in-depth what it means to be a Healer, how to ground and flow healing energy and I’ll address healing through intention, prayer and meditation from a distance.
