Every interaction, every relationship, every connection forms energetic cords between us and another person (or sometimes even a group of people). These energetic cords provide a path for energy to be exchanged. For empaths, intuitives, and other highly sensitive people, these cords can be absolutely draining as they are absorbing so much of the other person's energy and that person may be feeding off their energy as well.
Even those who don't necessarily resonate with being highly sensitive to energy are impacted by energetic cords.
Think about going to the grocery store. You're having a great day, but it's a crazy busy day in the store... the lines are long, and your cashier is obviously having a terrible day. They don't smile when you try to engage them, they roll their eyes when you ask a question, and you notice it looks like they could just start crying at any moment. You leave the store with your items and when you get home find yourself snapping at your loved ones and your patience is totally gone.
Yes, this is a symptom of an energetic cord.
A cord was created between you and the cashier, their coldness was already draining, and now you've created a connection that creates an energy as if the interaction was still occurring.
We can also have deeply intense cords between ourselves and loved ones. It is so important to cut cords with our loved ones so that way the energy between the relationship can stay moving and positive. A sign that these cords need to be cut is when our relationship with someone has reached a standstill, there is frequent arguing, and an energy of tension.
Many people express a desire to detach themselves from the energy of others and one of the most effective ways of doing so is through cord cutting. Cord cutting is the ritual of cutting the energetic cords that connect us with another person or group of people. We can often tell where these cords are in our body as it is the area that tenses up when we think of this other person. Cutting cords is helpful for both parties as it reinstates the boundaries of each person's energy.
Cord cutting is often done in reiki healings or during meditation.
