What Are Etheric Cords?

What are etheric cords? We all have etheric cords. We are even born with them. Etheric cords (sometimes referred to as ethereal cords, energy cords, and ribbons) are energy structures that connect to your energy bodies (aura, chakras, etc.). They extend out of you and connect with other people, places, animals and even objects.

Etheric cords allow you to feel a connection with what you have corded.

Etheric cords of attachment provide you with a very accurate way to connect with and tap into someone else’s energy. This gives you an energetic feedback mechanism. It is this feedback mechanism which allows you to know what others are feeling and perhaps even thinking. Have you ever felt that you know what a partner or good friend is thinking or feeling? It almost certainly is due in part to the etheric cord. When a baby is born, instinctively, the mother is connected to the child. This is also due in part to the etheric cord.

How Do Etheric Cords Work?

When you connect with someone by interacting with them or even by think or talking about someone, you will create an etheric cord with them. An energetic cord will extend out of you and connect with that person. It literally can be as simple as where you place your focus you will cord it.

Etheric cords can attach anywhere on your body although there are certain areas of the body which are more common. As an example, etheric cords that connect at and around the solar plexus chakra (personal power) tend to be from cords that attach due to normal daily activities. Etheric cords that attached at and around the sacral chakra (emotions/sexuality) tend to be associated more with romantic partners. Romantic partners that are both present and past (this also includes those who you fantasise about or have a crush on). Of course, these are just generalisations. You should use your intuition as to how to read them.

Once connected, you will then start to receive energetic information from this person. This information is carried back to you via the cord. The etheric cord is very much like a probe that transports energetic information back to you. This information is then read and decoded. This is how you sometimes know if you like or dislike someone even before you interact.

If you get to know this person over time, the etheric cord strengthens. This makes it easier to pick up their energy and energetic information. This helps keep relationships healthy and is an essential human energetic mechanism allowing you to connect with the world around you.

When you have corded someone, the energies will flow in both directions; it is essential to be aware that cords are not always positive. Sometimes we can take someone’s energy or have ours taken from us. This can leave you feeling drained energetically. Etheric cords can be used to attack psychically. It is essential to ensure your etheric cords are healthy and maintained. I have written in more detail about this in the blog post Are All Etheric Cords Negative? which you may find interesting.
