Have you heard of etheric cord cutting?  When we consider that everything in the universe is comprised of energy, in explaining etheric cords, I am referring to non-tangible energetic attachments.  These attachments may be between two people or it may also be from a person to an inanimate object. When these ‘ties’ are formed, they keep the people involved feeling bound and imprisoned and are unhealthy emotions shared between the individuals and/or the fear-based attachment for an object.

Fear towards a person or an object enables the forming of spiritual ties like cords or tubing that grow from one or more chakras to another person or object. These attachments although unseen by the human eye, prevent the person or object from moving forward and may stunt spiritual growth and keep them feeling bound and emotionally drained.

Who may we develop these attachments to or with? 

They may be with loved ones: family (parents, siblings) and spouses/partners – usually these and other longtime relationships are most intense. They may also exist between friends, co-workers, and for professionals such as spiritual healers / holistic practitioners, teachers, and counselors these attachments may at times, be with their clients, students and patients.

It’s important for people in professions that provide spiritual work, to ensure they cut the cords after completing their work, after helping someone, or whenever they begin to feel pain or tired and drained without any apparent reason.

Etheric cord attachments are hollow fibrous tubes between the attached persons. As they are fear-based, they are dysfunctional and unhealthy. When cutting etheric cord attachments it is not an act of severing the relationship per se, or of abandoning or divorcing someone, it is for releasing the unhealthy aspect of that relationship.

When you have an etheric cord attachment with someone, you may feel your energy being drained from you and the person to which you have the attachment is keeping you feeling held down, emotionally drained and feeling tired without you realizing or understanding the reason for it.

The late and very wise Wayne Dyer wrote in his book: The Power of Intention: Learning to Co-create Your World Your Way  “You get what you intend to create by being in harmony with the power of intention, which is responsible for all of creation.”

Cord Cutting is available to all who call upon Archangel Michael for his assistance. Sit quietly and ask Archangel Michael to assist you by using his sword to cut all attachments to negativity. Set the intention and think or say aloud, ‘Archangel Michael, please be present with me. I ask that you please help to cut the cords of fear that are draining my energy and vitality.’ Sit quietly while he cuts your cords. Next call upon Archangel Raphael, and ask that he assist with healing the areas where the cords were cut. Similar to an open wound when you suffer an injury, etheric wounds where cords once existed, are now left open and ‘vulnerable’. Asking for assistance to heal the wound and area where the cord was severed is not only important, but necessary to prevent leaving a ‘void’.  Archangel Raphael will send healing energy through the severed cords to both you and the other person. You will feel an energy shift and lightness that you did not feel before. Afterward, be sure to give thanks to the archangels for their help.

Although this process may be done on one’s own and with their own timing, at times it may be necessary to request help from a facilitator that provides spiritual work to assist with the process of cutting and severing the etheric cord attachments. There may be several reasons why one would want assistance. If you feel fearful, lack confidence to conduct the session alone or would just rather ask that someone else conduct the process. There is no judgment upon the person asking to be helped in such cases.

Have you ever tried to sell something but it just won’t sell—at any price? This may be a sign that you have an etheric cord to that object…for example this could be to your home, a car, and so on.  Regardless of price lowering, the object will not sell. Etheric cords to objects are usually attached from the bottom of the person’s feet and are attached to the part of the item where one is most attached. Again, since there is fear surrounding this object from the person that has formed the attachment—whether conscious or unconscious, to ‘release’ the object, first ask yourself: do I really want to sell this item?  If so, then set an intention, ask Archangel Michael to cut the cords from the bottom of your feet, and believe that once you’ve released the attachment to the object, something better will replace the item.
