What is a cord cutting meditation?

A cord cutting meditation is an energy purifying process wherein you can cut energy-based ties that you may have created with somebody. 

Every single time that you associate and engage with another human entity, you form cords of an energetic nature between you and that individual, regardless of whether it was a brief interaction or a deep bond.

Building new relationships can be rewarding and heartwarming but could possibly end up being a source of misery as well. If the individual that you created the energetic cords with has a negative outlook and is draining, your energy could end up leaking to them without you even having to be around each other after the original interaction. 

As social beings, we can end up having energetic cords with all sorts of people. Starting off with parents, friends, partners, ex-partners, and colleagues, etc. Just as you can leak your energy to another individual, they can leak their energy onto you as well. There is no way of knowing what energies you have absorbed and actualized within yourself until you cut the cords! That is where cutting the cord meditation comes in, as a tool to cut these draining energetic cords.

Cord cutting meditation starts with making yourself comfortable. Once comfortable, close your eyes and focus on your breath and slow it down. Focus on these steps and get into a meditative state:

  1. Once you are in a meditative state and comfortable, you can go ahead and invite a guide that you would feel secure with – whether that be god, an angel that you believe in, the power of the universe, or your inner pure self. 
  2. The guide you invite will be assisting you by cutting the cords on your behalf. Request your guide to progress smoothly and swiftly across your list of undesirable energetic cords and request that they cut those cords with ease and grace. 
  3. You could internally voice something like “I humbly request you to cut these cords now.”
  4. By doing this regularly, you will feel a heavy burden lifted off your shoulders. Your overall state will end up improving and you will feel happier and re-energized. 

In the long term, you will witness an energy change within yourself that you may not have even imagined at the start.
