How Etheric Cords Work
Before we look at the twenty ways to cut cords and prevent them from returning, I wanted to highlight some essential characteristics of etheric cords and how and why they may form.
As etheric cords often attach to your energy bodies (aura, chakras, etc.), they are subject to change.
Not all etheric cords are negative. This means that etheric cords can go from favorable to unfavorable and non-serving to positive.
Etheric cords can also reappear as cord-cutting does not mean they will not return after one cord-cutting removal exercise.
Etheric cords are not static. Instead, they connect you with the world and things around you. This is done through interaction and the energetic dynamics within you.
This means that if you think about someone or something or feel an emotion about someone or something, it is very likely a cord will attach.
Etheric Cord Example
Sarah goes into a store and purchases some groceries. At the checkout, the cashier does not acknowledge Sarah, which upsets her.
Sarah has solid ideas about customer care. But, unfortunately, she leaves the shop and becomes increasingly enraged at her treatment.
All the way home, Sarah relives the situation. She even embellishes what happened with things she wishes she had said.
Sarah begins to plan revenge by wanting to report the cashier as payback for making her feel bad.
Sarah and the cashier create a deep and strong negative etheric cord.
In this example, if Sarah had spoken her truth and expressed her expectations, she may have avoided a negative etheric cord. Speaking her truth would have made her feel more empowered.
However, she did not do this. Instead, she allowed the intense emotions of rage, anger, revenge, and storytelling to take hold. She inadvertently kept the cord in place and strengthened it further.
The interesting thing in this example is that Sarah maintained and strengthened the non-serving cord.
It is essential to remember that non-serving cords work in two directions, both from and to you, so be mindful of who you are also cording.
20 Ways To Cut Cords And Prevent Them From Returning
The 20 Ways To Cut Cords And Prevent Them From Returning will look at both directions of cording.
Unforgiveness is undoubtedly the number one cause of repetitive non-serving cording. You will never be able to cut non-serving cords if you do not forgive.
If you hold any emotion or thought that blames, hates, or seeks revenge, you will inadvertently be cording the person or thing you don't want.
You will almost always be doing the cording, so it is essential to always start with forgiveness.
Forgiveness And The Thymus Chakra gives an easy-to-follow exercise to help with forgiveness.
2. Avoid Drama
Living in and entertaining drama is the second most common cause for non-serving cords. Energetically drama is a chaotic energy that cannot bring peace or balance.
Due to this, if you have chaotic energy around you caused by drama, you cannot maintain healthy etheric cords. Why Being Addicted To Drama Is Bad For Your Well-being explains this in more detail.
3. Energy Healing
Energy healing is a popular practice to cut and remove negative etheric cords. It uses energy to remove negative cords and ensure they don't return.
Energy healing may also be able to heal any damage caused by the negative cord. In addition, it may also remove any lingering associated negative energies.
I highly recommend the Etheric Cord Maintenance Attunement. This attunement not only aims to cut non-serving cords but also helps maintain the optimal functioning of positive cords. It also aims to repair damage and ensure your energies are balanced and protected.
4. Avoid Storytelling
Avoiding storytelling may sound similar to drama, but it is more about constructing stories (non-truths or lies) about people around you and yourself.
This is also a common reason why non-serving cords attach, highlighted by Sarah's action in the example above. Storytelling not only binds you to the non-truths but also binds you to others and things through the creation of non-serving cords.
As you can imagine, indulging in storytelling makes it easy to feel stuck and drained.
5. Karate Chop
Karate chopping is a wonderful way to remove cords quickly.
First, do a quick karate chop over and across your solar plexus chakra (just above your belly button). While doing this, hold the intention that all non-serving cords be removed.
This exercise works as most non-serving cords tend to attach at and around the solar plexus from normal daily activities.
If you are cutting cords from a previous relationship, do the karate chop in front of the sacral chakra.
6. Cord Cutting Meditation
If you already practice meditation, including a non-serving cord-cutting part is easy.
In a quiet and calm position, focus on your breathing. Allow a sense of serenity to fill you. Then start to feel your energies glow in white light.
In this beautiful state, allow the glow to intensify. Start to feel any negative cords burn and release.
As you feel the release hold an intention that the cord has been removed, including any associated negative energies. You are strong, empowered, and filled with love and healing light.
Visualisation is a great way to remove negative etheric cords.
A quick and easy visualisation exercise is to visualise a cord between you and someone else. Or imagine cords reaching out of you (even if you don't know who they are attached to).
Hold an intention that you will cut and remove the etheric cord. Imagine cutting the cord with a sword, scissors, or even a karate chop, as mentioned previously.
Visualise the cord breaking and instantaneously disappearing. Feel a sense of energetic restoration and your energy raising in vibration.
You can use this visualisation anywhere and do not necessarily need to meditate.
8. Intention and Action
A clear intention to have all non-serving etheric cords cut is enough to achieve this. You may like to do this regularly throughout the day.
However, it is best not to over-focus on this. You may inadvertently create negative cords if you become obsessed. Start by doing it as you feel the need.
I have also included action, as intention will only work effectively with action. So think about what you can do to clear and prevent non-serving cords and then do it.
9. Avoid Toxic People and Environments
Suppose you surround yourself with people and things not to your higher benefit or drain you. In that case, you will be in a position for possible cording.
Be mindful of the places you frequent also. Public transport, offices, bars, and clubs are the top places to be aware of.
Of course, you may only be able to avoid some of these places. Still, this list may help you be preemptively aware of dealing with any resulting cording.
10. Stop Thinking About Them
Suppose you have been corded or are trying to break a non-serving cord with someone specifically. In that case, trying to stop thinking and talking about this person is essential.
Thought and communication are energies, which may make breaking any non-serving cords more difficult. This may be challenging to achieve initially, especially for an ex.
So take your time and keep up with regular cord-cutting.
11. Do Not Investigate, Follow Up, Or Stalk
You will never be able to cut non-serving cords with someone if you are actively (emphasis on action) seeking out someone and keeping tabs on them.
For example, suppose you have the intention to break non-serving cords, but your actions contradict this. In that case, you cannot cut the non-serving cord. You run the risk of actually strengthening it.
12. Raise Your Vibration
When you raise your vibration, you reduce non-serving energies within your energy bodies. It also strengthens them and increases vitality, well-being, and personal power.
This all leads to feeling stronger within yourself, which helps avoid many of the points listed. You can raise your vibration in many different ways with an emphasis on preventing low-vibration energies (fear, unforgiveness, repetitive thoughts, etc.).
In addition, focus on increasing your vitality by eating well, focusing on love and acceptance, and letting go of the past.
13. Physical Activity
You are an energy being. With this in mind, any activity that helps you release energy, stress, or tension is beneficial. This is especially the case when focused on cutting etheric cords.
Consider rhythmic activities or exercises such as running, yoga, and dancing.
When you are being active and moving your body, hold an intention to cut and remove all negative etheric cords. Imagine the negative etheric cords detaching and being lifted away and cleared.
14. Nature Walk
Walking in nature is another physical activity that needs its own mention. When being active in nature, you are not only being active but also taking in healing energies from nature and the earth.
This wonderful infusion of positive energy helps you feel more grounded and uplifted. This, in turn, makes you feel stronger and more empowered and removes negative energetic cords as a side effect.
I am a big fan of walking meditations, especially in nature. Therefore, holding an intention to be rejuvenated and removing negative etheric cords can easily be incorporated into a walking meditation.
Self-reflection is an essential practice in all energy healing and spiritual practices. It can also effectively identify and remove any negative etheric cords.
Self-reflection can be likened to looking at yourself in a mirror. You subjectively look into the profound aspects of who you are.
You can use self-reflection to understand why you have an etheric cord and how to remove it effectively. While learning lessons to prevent negative cords from returning in the future.
Energetic grounding connects your energies with the energies of the earth. Therefore, keeping your energies balanced and rejuvenated is essential, which may enhance spiritual development.
Due to the balancing and rejuvenating characteristics of grounding, it can also be very effective at negative etheric cord removal.
The higher your overall vibration and sense of personal power, the lower the chance of getting negative etheric cords.
Working with crystals may not be an obvious choice for negative etheric cord removal. However, you can use crystal energies for negative cord removal and ensure they don't return.
While in a calm and meditative position (lying down is probably best), you can place crystals where the cord has attached. If unsure, placing the crystal on the solar plexus chakra (just above the belly button) is ideal.
Allow the energy of the crystals to infuse with your energies while holding a possible intention to remove and remain clear of negative cords.
Crystals such as obsidian, tiger eye, black tourmaline, and smokey quartz are good considerations.
Consider etheric crystal attunements if you want to work with crystal energies but lack time. Then, you can use these energies where ever you are without needing physical crystals.
Using positive affirmations regularly is a great way to set a strong intention to remove negative etheric cords.
Affirmations are short intention statements that use intention to bring about change. In this case, remove negative etheric cords.
Examples of a cord-cutting affirmations are:
'I am free of all negative etheric cords.'
'I remove all negative etheric cords, and they will not return.'
'I have a high vibration, and negative etheric cords cannot attach.'
Use an affirmation that feels right for you and include it in your daily activities. However, ensure you do this from a place of personal power and not a victimhood mentality.
Hypnosis is another not-so-obvious way to remove negative etheric cords. However, you can use hypnosis to strengthen your sense of personal power and release any emotional blockages.
This may be important as if you feel emotionally overwhelmed, it can be challenging to remove etheric cords effectively. This is because to have the intention to do so, you must have focus and consistency. Unfortunately, emotional blockages make this extremely difficult to achieve.
I recommend looking at the self-hypnosis audios provided by Hypnosis Downloads.
20. Inner Child Work
You must remain energetically consistent when removing and remaining free of negative etheric cords.
Working with your inner child is a good way of doing this. You can work with your inner child to release childhood traumas and aim to feel more energetically balanced and focused.
It may also help you raise your vibration, which, as mentioned previously, is an excellent way of remaining cord-free.
When removing negative cords, always be aware cords work in two directions. To remain negative etheric cord-free, ensure you are not inadvertently cording someone.
Cord cutting is not a permanent practice. This is because your energies constantly change. You also have constant energetic interactions with the energies around you. With this in mind, adding etheric cord cutting to your daily practices is always beneficial.
