Whenever we experience a situation in which we have an emotional response, a cord can form. These cords form energetic links between you and another person or situation; they allow your energy to flow from you to something else.
Although some cords with children and spouses are appropriate, most of the cords we have are unhealthy and create an unbalanced co-dependency with other people.
These negative cords can form when we have traumatic experiences, or from a sense of betrayal, guilt, blame, anger, depression, or attachment of any kind. In fact, because of its intimacy and intensity, sexual interaction itself – even a deep kiss – results in being corded for seven years.
When a cord has formed between two people, energy flows from you even if you are no longer in the other person’s life or within physical proximity. If negative emotional patterns are associated with that relationship, person, or experience, your energy and life force can become drained and depleted, keeping you stuck in the patterns of your past.
Once your cords are cut through this process, you are free to reconnect with those who are important to you! As a result, you can establish your current relationships on a new and healthier level, with new energy and focus.
