I woke up in a complete panic in the middle of the night a few days ago to see a cord physically coming out of my stomach connecting to another beyond my view. My heart was racing and huge beads of sweat were exiting my body (specifically on my stomach region). This spiritual vision of the cord only lasted a minute but the physical reaction of my body continued for an hour. This was a sign that a Cord Cutting Ceremony was in order.
An active cord maintains a connection from one Soul
to another on a spiritual level
thereby giving and receiving energy that no longer is ours to take or give.
Throughout our lives we connect energetic cords to those with whom we keep relationships: friends, family, lovers and sometimes material objects. These cords serve an important purpose at the time for our journey, yet we tend to keep these cords intact even after the relationship has ended. An active cord maintains a connection from one Soul to another on a spiritual level thereby giving and receiving energy that no longer is ours to take or give. Freeing oneself from this spiritual cord of energy reroutes this energy back to the Self while simultaneously amplifying it outwards to call in your next spiritual contract(s). Here is how to separate energy in a Cord Cutting Ceremony:
Create a sacred space to hold your ceremony and include any objects that allow you to feel the most connected to the Divine. It is important to cleanse the space using gifts of the Earth such as sage or palo santo. Allow yourself a few minutes of meditation in order to center the Self and be at peace. Take a new candle to represent the individual you are separating yourself from - placing the candle in the middle of your sacred space. Light the candle in the name of the Divine or any enlightened Soul you honor (i.e. Jesus Christ, Buddha, etc.). This provides the strength and support of the spiritual world. Once the candle is lit, place your hands in the prayer position in front of your heart and visualize the individual you are separating yourself from in front of you. See them as they are and accept them completely - understanding that their role in your life was a gift made purely out of love. Take a moment to wish them well and bless their journey.
PLEASE NOTE: if you are unable to wish them well, then a longer healing session is in order prior to a Cord Cutting Ceremony.
Next, visualize a cord connecting you to this individual. In the name of the Divine then ask that this cord be severed and the energy returned to each individual. Allow your arms to rise up above your head, using your hands like scissors to cut the cord and then bring them together in the prayer position. Take a deep breath in and, as you breathe out, place your left hand over your heart and push your right hand forward as if indicating “stop." Stay here for a moment. When you feel ready, slightly bow your head and bring your hands in the prayer position to your third eye. Take this moment to give thanks in prayer and end with your prayer hands in front of your heart. PLEASE NOTE: The candle must continue to burn until it puts itself out in order to honor the ceremony. However, you may move the candle to a safer location as it continues to burn.
Freeing oneself from this spiritual cord of energy
reroutes this energy back to the Self
while simultaneously amplifying it outwards
to call in your next spiritual contract(s).
It is important to note that frequently the individual from whom you are separating will reach out after the energy has been disconnected. This is because they are so used to receiving energy from you that they are unconsciously attempting to reconnect. If this happens, you must repeat the Cord Cutting Ceremony.
