Uncordingby Liz Oertel, 1/04/07, update 04/08/14
Many of you ask what uncording is, so first I'll talk about what cords are and what they do, then go into some basic exercises to remove the troublesome ones.  The cords I am referring to are etheric cords, and in this article, negative etheric cords in particular.  These negative etheric cords issues often come up during my soul retrieval sessions.

Etheric cords exist between people, also between people and objects, and between people and places.  The first etheric cord you have is the one along with, and shadowing (or lighting!), the umbilical cord between you and your mother before you were born.  Clairvoyant people can sometimes see etheric cords as thin, hollow tubes, or umbilical cords, which usually connect with us at a chakra or chakras. 

Energy flows back and forth through these etheric cords into and out of the chakras, and through these cords energy can be pumped into you or drained away from you, without your knowledge and without you being in close proximity to the other person. Since the cords are etheric, it doesn't matter how far away the other person is, the energy still flows back and forth through the cord. 

Now, the negative etheric cords are different from the normal, healthy connections we have and are separate from the silver cord, which attaches our spirit to our body.  We all have cords attached to other people, and for the most part we don't need to concern ourselves with them because most of them are between us and people who love and support us.  The problem starts when unhealthy attachments are sent to us from other people, or we send them to other people.  In close relationships, it is fear that forms these negative cords.  The fear may be characterized as fear of abandonment, of being alone, excessive anger or depression, co-dependency, all forms of abuse, unforgiveness, wanting revenge, or any kind of excessive neediness.  Any relationship where a person looks to the other person as the source of their light, instead of looking to their own inner connection to the Divine, tends to create negative cords.  People who help other people, such as therapists, professional caregivers, non-professional caregivers, massage therapists, etc., and people who just naturally nurture other people, can have many cords attached to them, draining them, as the needy people whom they help unknowingly attach etheric cords to them.  This is why sometimes, the sickest people are the therapists themselves, they are unknowingly right in the middle of most of their clients issues.  Negative etheric cords are also a major cause of chronic fatigue syndrome and healer's burnout.  Below, under 'Removing Etheric Cords',  I have some exercises you can do to remove these cords and to shield yourself from negativity.

 
According to Doreen Virtue, Ph.D.,"Etheric cords act like hoses, with energy directed back and forth between both people. Therein lies the problem with having them. If the person to whom you are attached is having a life challenge, that person will siphon energy from you. He or she will draw upon your energy supply through the etheric cord. You will then feel drained, without knowing why. Very often, the people you have had sexual relationships with are attached to your sacral chakra. The people with whom you've experienced conflict are attached to your solar plexus. Those who you grieve over are attached to your heart chakra. Those with whom you've had painful relationships, or relationships where you carried all the weight, are attached to your shoulders. This is, in my experience, the root cause of shoulder and neck pain." 

Picture the average corporate worker sitting at his/her desk all day, internalizing the companies demands that he/she constantly produce more, and ask yourself if some of that workers' neck and back pain might be from the many etheric cords attached from managers, vice presidents, co-workers, subordinates, and shareholders, all needing more and more production in order to survive!


Doreen also shares with us in her book Angel Medicine, "Many people with chronic shoulder, neck and back pain have large cords in these areas that are the true culprit.  The longer the relationship has existed, the larger the cord.  Therefore the larger cords run the most energy back and forth.  That's why I often find that people with chronic pain have
large cords to primary family members."

Strong feelings of anger, resentment, and the desire for revenge, send negative etheric cord attachments to the other person, place, or object.  Holding onto this anger and/or resentment causes the cords to become thicker and larger.  The longer the resentment, the thicker the cord, the more the resentment becomes a part of you and drains you.  In fact, resistance while cutting or removing these cords usually, not always, but usually means you or the other party are still holding on to the anger and are resisting letting it go and moving on.  I mention one remedy for this below.

Negative etheric cords are also present during addictions, attaching the person to the substance of their addiction, whether over-eating, smoking, alcohol, drugs, sex, or other activities.  Cords can also be attached to us by unhealthy earthbound spirits who are not in our best interests, and want to survive at our expense, by using our energy.  Many of these spirits don't mean to be destructive, they just don't know any better, and then some of them are intentionally destructive.  Many of these unhelpful spirits  would prefer that we form addictions.  According to Samuel Sagan, M.D. in his book Entity Possession, Freeing the Energy Body of Negative Influences, "they [unhealthy entitities] need a connection with the physical plane [and] regular consumption of a drug, from alcohol to heroin, also makes a person particularly attractive to them."  If you think you have entity attachments, you can call on Archangel Michael to cut the cords and escort the entity back to the light as I mention below,  but you may need shamanic help, especially if you are very fearful of the entity or the process.  You can contact me for a shamanic healing session where we will perform a soul retrieval, and remove the entity along with the negative cord(s). 

After removing negative etheric cords your energy will be lighter, freer, more at peace.  More of your energy will be available to you, helping you to be more centered and better able to deal with ridding yourself of the pattern that drew the negativity to you in the first place.  Cutting negative cords between you and someone else doesn't mean, "I don't love you or care about you anymore," and having these cords in the first place does not mean that you are abnormal, guilty, or otherwise screwed up. After all, healthy attachments are necessary for humans.  Cord cutting doesn't lead to break-ups or abandoned relationships. It simply means that you are releasing the dysfunctional parts of your relationships. Remember, fear is the opposite of love, and negative etheric cords are created from fear.

removing etheric cords

The fastest and simplest way to cut etheric cords yourself is to mentally call Archangel Michael to come to your side and clear away all cords that are draining you. If you are unfamiliar with Archangel Michael, he is an angel who acts as a "manager" of other angels. His primary role is to protect you and to clear away all dark and fear based energy. You can ask Archangel Michael to come to your side anytime. You can even ask him to live with you permanently because angels and archangels can be everywhere at one time.

Take some deep breaths and relax.  Imagine a ball of the shining white light of God over your head.  Bring this shining white light down over and through your head, and cover your entire body with it.  When you are saturated with this light, call on Archangel Michael, by saying:  Archangel Michael I call upon you now.  Please cut the cords of fear that are draining my energy and vitality.  Thank you. 

Stay silent for a while and be sure to relax and inhale and exhale fully during this process.  You may experience sensations such as air pressure changes, or you may not.  Whether you feel anything right away or not, the process is still working.  You can follow Archangel Michael by visualizing him removing or cutting these cords away from you.  Ask him to also escort any fear based entities back to the light.  Then, ask Archangel Michael to fill any voids you many have with God's loving White Light.  Don't forget to thank him once you have completed the process, or at any time during the process as well. 

If you are one of the caretaker types I talked about above, you would also benefit by using the following exercise daily.  You can do this any time of the day or night even though before bed is indicated, and especially after seeing clients or coming in contact with any negativity or toxic emotions:

Each night before bed, call on Archangel Michael by saying, Archangel Michael please come to me now. Please cut all negative etheric cords of fear that are sapping my joy, energy and vitality. Please clear me of  all negativity and fill all voids with God's loving White Light. Thank you!

When You Meet Resistance

When resistance is met in cutting negative etheric cords, the main reason is usually that you are holding on to some anger or other negative emotion or judgement toward the other party.  In this case, when you are ready, say to yourself:

I am willing to exchange pain for peace.

Then repeat the process again.  You can repeat the cord cutting process again, and again, if you feel it was incomplete, or as you go about your life and more cords have reattached to you.  Again, if you need further assistance, you can make an appointment with me,

Shielding yourself from negativity

If you know you are going to be in a situation where there are lower and toxic energies, such as public places or around angry, depressed, or needy people, you need to shield yourself. 

White Light: One very powerful way is to imagine, think, or see yourself completely surrounded with white light.  This white light comes directly from God. 

Pink Light
Another very good color of light to surround yourself with, especially for people who work helping other people is to cover yourself with pink light.  The pink light is also a higher vibration of love and is impermeable to lower energies. 

Blue Egg:  Think, see, or imagine yourself completely surrounded by a an egg of blue colored light.  This blue egg of light has also been used by many people for protection.

Violet Egg:  Think, see, or imagine yourself completely surrounded by an egg of violet, that's a reddish purple colored light.  If you look an an amethyst crystal, that's the color of violet.  This Violet Egg is an even higher vibration than the Blue Egg. 


The light wears off after a while so it is best to surround yourself again every 12 hours or so. 

Archangel Michael:  In addition to the light, you can ask Archangel Michael to be with you protecting you from all negativity and harm whatsoever.  You can also ask that Archangel Michael to be with you always to protect you, your home, your loved ones and your posessions.  You can also call on Archangel Michael to protect you right away if you sense any immediate danger.

There are many ways of shielding yourself but these are the ones I know to be the most effective and easiest to apply.

Conclusion

After removing negative etheric cords your energy will be lighter, freer, and more at peace.  Whether you remove them on a one-time basis due to a particular incident, or on a regular basis, more of your energy will be available to you, helping you to be more centered, peaceful, and better able to deal with ridding yourself of the pattern that drew the negativity to you in the first place.  Cutting negative cords between you and someone else doesn't mean, "I don't love you or care about you anymore", and having these cords in the first place does not mean that you are abnormal, guilty, or otherwise screwed up. After all, healthy attachments are necessary for humans.  Cord cutting doesn't lead to break-ups or abandoned relationships. It simply means that you are releasing the dysfunctional parts of your relationships. Remember, fear is the opposite of love, and negative etheric cords are created from fear.

There are many more situations outside the scope of this article for negative etheric cords to develop, and many are highly individual in nature, but always based on fear.  For further help in clearing your energy body, removing negative cords, and to explore having a soul retrieval or other shamanic healing, contact me, click here.
