Cutting Cords through Forgiveness

Article by Darshan.S

One of the most powerful tool that Reiki has offered us is the ability to cut Etheric cords that bind us to people, places, events, objects and other forms of energies. The cords are hollow energy tubes through which the unhealthy energy runs back and forth between the attached persons.

What exactly are the cords? And how do they affect us?

Etheric Cords are basically fear based attachments or energy links that connects us to a person, place, event, other energy forms and objects. They are called Cords because they look like Etheric tubes or strands. It looks similar to the umbilical cord that connects a baby to its mother. But these cords are in no way similar to the umbilical cord. Etheric cord are based out of fear and remain connect to us draining out all of our energy. They don’t nourish us, They deplete us.

Cutting the cords that bind us

There are many techniques in Reiki that people use to cut the cords. But what is important to understand is that unless there is forgiveness taking place the cords inevitably attach back to the host no matter how many times you cut them.

Think of the scenario in terms of a weigh balance. The cords will remain attached unless both sides of the scale are equally balanced and this can be done through forgiveness.

The technique

  1.  Sit in a relaxed and comfortable position. Clear out all distractions.
  2.  Shield and Ground yourself through visualization or invocation.
  3.  Invoke the divine Reiki to flow through you. Call upon your Reiki masters, Angels, Archangels, Spiritual Angels, Spiritual Guides and your personal Reiki Master to assist and guide you in this process.
  4.  Relax yourself and Reach the Alpha State (you can use any technique that you are familiar with to do this).
  5.  Begin by scanning your body to find any Etheric cords that may be attached to your energy body. It takes a bit of practice in the beginning but just follow your intuition, don’t rationalize.
  6.  Once you find the cord “Ask what or who the cord is connected to at the other end?”.

  7.  Once you receive the answer ask the reason why the cord has been attached? What is it that you are gaining and loosing from this cord being attached to you?
  8.  If the cord is attached to a person ask for forgiveness in the following way:
    “ (name of the person) please forgive me for all the wrong doings and hurt that I may have committed towards you and your family knowingly and unknowingly in my past lives and in my present life”.
    “I am forgiving you for all the wrong doings and hurt that you may have committed towards me and my family knowingly and unknowingly in your past lives and in your present life”
    (Let there be peace and harmony between us) x3
  9. Ask your higher self to show you a way to cut and discard the cord.
    Eg:- Burn it, Bury it etc.
    Use any tool or method that feels right to you.
  10. Heal the part where the cord was attached through the Reiki symbols.
  11. Repeat the same process for all cords that are connected to you.
  12.  Close the session.
  13.  Thank all the Reiki masters, Angels, Archangels, Spiritual Angels, Spiritual Guides and your personal Reiki Master for assisting you in the healing.

      Your welcome,

      For your first question yes you can cut all cords in the same session but we have so many cords connecting us that it becomes impossible to sit for such extended hours.

      Secondly, i recommend you cut chords with just one person at a time, this will allow the process to go on more smoothly and you will easily able to observe the healing that has taken place.

      Thirdly, yes we can cut cords on behalf of someone else but only if the give you permission to do so,
      You can say that i am now cutting cords for _____ through their permission and only in ways that are for our highest good.
