A Sense of Closure
In every relationship, people are constantly exchanging energy that can become a chord connecting two people. This energetic cord forms just below the breastbone and can remain long after a relationship has ended. This unbroken cord may leave an open channel between you and another person, through which emotions and energy can continue to flow. If you are unaware that the chord exists, it is easy to feel the other person’s emotions and mistakenly think that they are yours. Besides the fact that this can limit the amount of closure you can experience in a relationship, letting this cord remain intact can leave you with a continued sense of sadness while creating feelings of lethargy as your own energy is sapped from you. Cutting the cord can help you separate yourself from old baggage, unnecessary attachments, and release you from connections that are no longer serving you.
Finding and cutting unwanted cords is a simple, gentle process that is best done alone and when you are relaxed. It is important that you are strong in your intention to release the chord between you and someone else. To begin, breathe deeply and perform a simple centering meditation. When you are ready, visualize or sense the chords that are connecting you to other people. Run your fingers through the cords to separate them until you find the cord you wish to sever. There is no need to worry, because the chord you need to sever will feel just right. When you have found it, determine where the cut should be made and then visualize the cord being cleanly cut. If you need assistance, Archangel Michael can be called upon to help you with his sword. Afterwards, if you feel that cutting the chord has left spaces in your energy field, then visualize those spaces being filled with healing sunlight.
There may be times where cutting a cord can help free a relative or loved one to reach new stages of growth. You’re not severing a relationship, but you are severing the chords that are no longer serving you both. At other times, a cord may simply refuse to be cut because it is still serving a higher purpose. It is also important to remember that cutting a cord with someone is not a replacement for doing your emotional work with people. It can, however, be an enactment of that work upon its completion. In any case, cutting a relationship cord should always be viewed as a positive and nurturing act. By cutting the cords that no longer need to be there, you are setting yourself and others free from the ties that bind.
I sent this to Thorik as well as posted it in my MySpace blog. Of course, Aphrodite might take it as a hint *sigh* — which proves, in my mind, that the cord between Thorik and Aphrodite is still there.
I asked him why that was the first thing he thought, but he didn’t really have an answer for me. I do, in some dark part of me, find it amusing that the first thing he does is prove that it really IS still there. He then mentions that it is me who always seems concerned about her and mention it. I told him it’s because she is my friend. Perhaps I am wrong, but it is the way I am with friends. But I do see his point. He is just wanting to spend time with me, concentrate on us and our handfasting.
Perhaps I have been the one adding energy to the connection, but I still thing the connection is still there. Perhaps not… Either way, it is something we can both soul search and move past. I will do my cord search for various people who are no longer a direct part of my life, such as my ex. At least it has been longer and is further in the past. I know the cord was still there a few years ago when he told me he was leaving the Tracy-Bitch… but I think now I have moved even further than that. However, I don’t know if there is still a cord there or not… I had never thought about it that way before.
