How To Cut Cords Of Attachment

Updated: Aug 25, 2022

The reason why people cut cords with others is to generally move on from a person and let them go energetically - this means on an energy level. People who we are close to forming energetic bonds with us that resemble cords of energy that link one person to the other. These are etheric cords, so think of ether as a kind of energy. Those who have seen the cords (and often we can see them in meditation for example) describe them as dark in color. The bonding itself can be light with just a slim cord, or you can be corded heavily with another through your chakras and can have multiple thick cording that literally shows your attachment, either mentally, emotionally, sexually, or all of the above.

Of course, when you care about another, the cording is not a problem. The cords act as a way we send and receive psychic energy between chakras, theirs and ours. The more energy we spend, the bigger the cords, and this is normal in any relationship. Communication between chakras is how a lot of communication happens between people. However, when we want to let someone go because we aren't moving on, the cords and the continuing psychic/energy communication between them and us can hold us back. Luckily there are easy ways to remove the cords; no cord is meant to be forever. Whether cords reform again is entirely up to us, but when we are ready to let someone go, we probably won't go to the effort of reforming the psychic ties any


Symptoms of heavy cording include:

  • Unable to move on

  • Unable to stop thinking or obsessing about a person

  • Frequent conversations in your mind with a person

  • Frequently remembering what they said in the past, feeling their ongoing judgment or criticism

  • Arguments, sometimes daily in your mind with someone (these can be actual psychic arguments)

  • Constant memories or emotions that arise - i.e. we used to watch that show together

  • The temptation to go back to a relationship that does not serve you

  • Stalking another online through social networking, watching them compulsively

  • Unable to sleep, experiencing amnesia

  • You seem to endless process the past and what happened there

  • Deep feelings of sadness, anger, and depression around the past
