Severing Etheric Cords
It窶s important to have a regular practice of severing etheric cords from people who may be draining your energy. It窶s also not uncommon to have etheric cords attached to places, animals, and people who have died. When we think of someone, or someone thinks of us, and form an attachment, there is an energy cord created between us and the person, place or being.
It窶s important to recognize when a person may be draining on your energy, or leaving you feeling anxious or angry, etc. This may be an indication that there are energy cords that needs cutting. Cords are placed with people all the time, as we interact with others. So, it窶s extremely important to regularly sever cords that are not in your or the other person窶s best interest and highest good. We can also attach cords or have cords attached to people or situations that we are not ready to let go of. People who have died are a good example of this. People who have died are still energy beings, therefore, etheric cords can easily be run from our plane to theirs. When cords are not healthy and in our best interest, this prevents forward spiritual progress for the other person, as well as for us. "
