Are you constantly feeling drained and anxious, and not sure why? If so, you might be an empath, and you might be taking on the energy of the people you support or surround yourself with. This is why it’s SO important to learn how to do a cord cutting meditation or cord cutting ritual so that you’re not draining yourself to support others! My clients have reported feeling lighter, happier, and even able to wake up earlier after doing this cord cutting meditation!
A few years ago, I started working with a new client who was very much energetically draining me. I always left our sessions feeling SO exhausted.
I didn’t realize it at first, but once we started working together, I found out that she was someone who couldn’t really focus on what she wanted. After our calls, she wouldn’t take action on all of the goals we discussed, and I found that she was extremely dependent on me.
For months, I felt this heaviness on my heart.
I didn’t know what it was, but intuitively, I felt like something or someone was draining me.
I didn’t feel like myself, and it was becoming harder and harder for me to wake up in the morning.
Even though I didn’t know a lot about energy or energy work at the time, I could just feel that something was out of balance.
So I went on the hunt for answers.
Knowing that I was an empath, I started looking into empath-related Facebook groups and asking people if they had ever felt the same thing. A few people recommended I do a cord cutting meditation, and that’s when the lightbulb went off. Intuitively, I realized this was exactly what I was looking for.
While the first cord cutting meditation that I found helped, it didn’t quite do the job. I invested in myself, I tried many cord cutting meditations as well as my own meditation techniques.
Finally, I found a cord cutting meditation that works really well for me.
When I began to regularly practice my cord cutting meditation, I started to feel like myself again.
For the longest time without even realizing it, I had been draining my own energy to heal my client instead of tapping into a divine source.
(A reader I later worked with told me that I learned this as a child to heal the people around me.)
But now I know spiritual self-care. After I learned how to call my energy back to me, the lingering dense energy that I had been feeling went away.
This was when I realized how powerful a cord cutting meditation is, especially if you’re an empath.
What Is A Cord Cutting Meditation?
A cord cutting meditation is an energetic process where you’re able to cut the energetic ties that somebody has to you.
Every time you have a connection with any other human, whether it’s a quick conversation or a deeper relationship, you form esoteric cords between you and that person. Though you can’t see them, these energetic cords are keeping you connected, even if the person is miles away.
What can happen is that if you have energetic cords with someone who is negative or draining, you can be leaking energy to them, even if you’re not around each other.
You can have energetic cords with a partner or an ex-partner, with a parent, with a friend, with a co-worker — you never know how much of other people’s energies you’ve internalized until you cut the cords off!
Why Is A Cord Cutting Meditation So Important?
When you’re the one who’s always cheering people up, helping others, giving support, advice, and wisdom, you can end up severely drained. And this is even more of an issue for empaths, who tend to take on the energy of the people they support.
So if you’re a coach or anyone who works closely supporting others, doing a cord cutting meditation daily — or even after every single coaching call — is an absolute essential.
It should be as much of a habit as brushing your teeth!
This is how you cleanse your energy after working with people and ensure that your clients aren’t energetically pulling from you outside of your calls.
This also helps you show up to each coaching session completely fresh because you’re not pulling any of your energy from other relationships or other clients into the one you’re sitting in front of.
I’ve had clients go through my cord cutting meditation and tell me afterward that they were so energized, they were able to start waking up at 6 in the morning, even though they never had before.
(P.S. I’m still not someone who wakes up THAT early, unless it’s with my baby.)
A cord cutting meditation not only helps you, but it also helps the person who has been draining you. When they are cut off from draining your energy, they get the feeling that they need to start creating their own energy — which is a win-win for both of you!
When I cut cords with people who were not around me physically, I started to see the magic happen. I started seeing them become more independent and accomplishing things they never had before.
(This is why you don’t want to be someone’s energetic crutch — the best thing you can do for someone is teach them how to work with their own energy so they’re not borrowing yours!)
Now, I’m going to walk you through exactly how to cut your cords between you and anyone who is draining you:
How To Do A Cord Cutting Meditation
Make sure you’re in a comfortable position before you start this cord cutting meditation.
Step 1: Relax And Breathe
Close your eyes and breathe deeply.
As you breathe in, put your hand on your belly and feel it expand.
As you breathe out, release all negativity.
Breathe out your day and let go of anything that is on your mind.
Keep breathing in and out slowly until you feel peaceful and relaxed.
Step 2: Call In The Light
With your eyes still closed, look up and see or sense the light just above your head.
Imagine a channel of light going from your head upwards into the heavens. Know that light is here to help you and support you.
Ask the channel of light to fill your entire body with light and beautiful positive energy… filling your head, your face, your throat… down through your shoulders, your arms and hands, your chest, your belly, down through your legs, feet, and into the ground.
Take this time to be deeply present in your body.
Keep letting the light flow through you and connect down through the ground to the center of the Earth.
If you feel any tension in your body, ask the light to loosen and release any density you might be carrying, and let it go.
Imagine you’re a beautiful glowing ball of light… like a bright star or a beautiful sun.
Feel yourself radiate this loving, bright light all around your energy field…
Step 3: Become Aware of the Cords
Ask the light to shine brightly on any fear-based cords coming out of your body.
Where are they?
What do they feel like?
Notice them with no judgment as they light up.
If you have any sensitive spots on your body, sense if there is a cord there.
Step 4: Call In Your Guidance and Cut The Cords
Now, it’s time to call in a higher power to help you with this next step.
Ask God, your spirit guides, your guardian angel, the Archangels — whatever divine guidance most resonates with you — to help you with this cord cutting meditation.
Ask your divine guidance to give you a light tool to cut the cord coming from your heart.
Your light tool might be a pair of scissors… a sword… a knife… open up your hand and feel what that light tool is for you.
(You can call on Archangel Michael for this, as he is the guardian who assists with cord cutting.)
When you’re ready, take the light tool and make a nice, easy, swift cut to the cord coming from your heart. Swoosh!
Step 5: Send Love and Light
Now, ask your heart to send a huge ball of bright flame to the cord that has been severed.
This bright, intense flame of love and light will continue to go through the cord and singe the ends.
Imagine the cord sparking as this pure white light travels down to the other end of the cord, burning up the cord and all fear-based agendas with love.
When this flame hits the other person, it will spark and be purified with love and light… a blessing you’re sending to that person.
Feel the light radiating through you, and imagine it turns into a liquid light that fills your entire body, purifying your energy system instantly.
Send bright, white light to wherever the cord was in your body, healing that part of you.
Let the light dissolve all of the decisions you made to allow these fear-based agendas to show up in your life.
Ask the light to heal everything instantly now.
If you feel any cords lingering, take your light tool and repeat the process of cutting the cord, burning it, and sending sparks of love to anyone on the opposite end of that cord.
Show them that they have everything they need.
Step 6: Practice Gratitude
Let any dense energies be cleared from your space, sending them up, giving them up to a higher power.
Now, you’re full of love, full of life, fully vibrant.
Feel the gratitude in your heart.
Thank your angels, spirit guides, the Universe, God… whatever source of divine guidance you believe in (if you hold those beliefs) and place your light tool back in your heart.
Thank you for taking this time for yourself and for being a positive impact on the world.
Ask your subconscious mind to remind you to do your cord cutting meditation and cleanse your energy as often as possible.
Open your eyes.
I’m so happy to share this cord cutting meditation with you!
If you’ve never done a cord cutting meditation before, you might find that you have to do it a few times to feel the lightness and the benefits that come out of it.
Know that’s not up to you to hold onto these heavy energies anymore. You’ve done your part.
And here’s what I want you to realize:
You’re a natural healer, and you heal people the most just by being who you are.
But you can’t truly help anyone else unless you help yourself.
You cannot pour from an empty cup.
It’s so easy to look around you and see people who need your help…
…But if you were outside your own body, looking at yourself, wouldn’t you think, “That person needs some help, too?”
Your body is your temple — it’s your most important asset.
So I encourage you to spend time making sure that you’re taking care of your own energy, and this cord cutting meditation is a wonderful way to do just that.
Remember that when you’re full-on with your energy, you’ll be able to support others even more. The energy you vibrate will have a positive impact on everyone around you.
This is why it’s SO important to work on your self-image and make sure you’re putting yourself first.
