Meditation styles vary drastically. And you may do amazing with one style and struggle with another. One option for you to try is cord cutting meditation.

What is cord cutting meditation?

We’ll explain this form of meditation in great detail and then walk you through the exact steps you need to take to see results.

Note: If meditation doesn’t work for you, it’s never a bad idea to just try something different. Sometimes, it’s the type of meditation that is holding you back rather than the practice itself. Cord cutting meditation is just another option to try, especially when dealing with negative people or energy.

What Is Cord Cutting Meditation?

Cutting the cord meditation revolves around:

  • Energy cords
  • Negative energy
  • Positive energy
  • Cord connections

The practice of cord cutting is right for you when you want to invite light into your life and let go of emotional stress. In short, this practice allows you to cut the ties someone has with you – energetic ties.

For example, do you have someone in your life who is an energy leech?

Of course, you do. In fact, 40% of people had negative emotions in 2020, setting a record in the process. This figure is likely much higher. Cord attachments are the connection you have with other humans that have an energetic hold on you.

This person can be an ex, an old friend or someone who you cared deeply about and is no longer in your life. You’re leaking energy to this person even if they’re not around you or really a part of your life.

And you internalize all of this energy.

Perhaps thinking of the person causes you anxiety, stress, negative emotions or other strong feelings.

If you engage in cutting the cord, you’re going to break free of these negative thoughts and energy that often sit in your subconscious mind, slowly impacting your energy.

How to Do Cord Cutting Meditation: 5 Easy Steps to Begin

Cord attachment is never healthy in my mind because there must be energetic boundaries. Unfortunately, you cannot control the actions of others, but if you cut these energetic cords, you can still care about the person without the emotional drain on your mind.

You can find peace of mind.

And you can begin experiencing the benefits of cutting the cord meditation by following these simple steps:

1. Create a Comfortable Space

First, you need to have a meditation space that is perfect for you and your needs. Everyone’s space is different, and you can have:

  • Candles
  • Incense
  • Music
  • Pillows
  • Blackout curtains

Anything you want. However, one thing you need to ensure is that the space is free from noise and distraction. You need to have just 15 – 20 minutes to dedicate to your practice so that you can begin your energetic practice.

inhale and exhale

2. Sit and Breathe

Sit in your meditation pose and be sure that your posture is good. You want the energy to flow through your body, and it will make it much easier to breathe when you maintain good posture. Breathing is going to be crucial to cutting the cord.

Once comfortable:

  • Close your eyes
  • Focus on your breathing
  • Inhale as long as you can
  • Slowly exhale until your lungs are empty
  • Repeat

After doing this 10 times, it’s time to move on to the next step.

3. Light Summoning

Light work is the foundation of cutting the energy cords that are causing your emotional attachments and finally putting boundaries up. You will continue with your eyes closed and maintain your deep breathing.

But you’re now going to do the following:

  • Focus on the top of your head, or the crown
  • Imagine a beam of light emanating from the crown
  • Put positive thoughts into this beam of light
  • Focus on the light and the way it makes you feel

The beam of light is thought of as a universal source or center of your energy. You need to fill this light with , intentional, positive thoughts.

4. Begin Cutting Cords

When visualizing and traversing the light from the crown of the head, it’s time to follow this light to the people that they branch off to. In this case, the person that you have an energetic connection with that you want to sever the cord with.

Now, you’ll need to:

  • Visualize breaking the cord with these energy-leeching individuals
  • Ask the light to remove the fear and anxiety you feel
  • Ask for help finding and removing the negative bonds you have with individuals

You’ll want to ask for guidance from the light during this practice to try and find the right cords. The light will help you find the right cords to be severe. Ask the light to stop the overwhelming emotions that you have with the person and guidance to cut these energy-draining emotions.

Note: Some individuals will call on angels, such as Archangel Michael for guidance. But if you’re not religious or follow another religion, just skip this part. It’s not 100% necessary, and cord cutting will work just fine whether you’re an atheist or one of the most devout people in the world.

5. Cut and Fill the Void

Finally, you’re going to begin cutting cords of light, and you’re going to notice that there are holes or voids which exist. You can visualize filling these voids with positive light and emotions to fill them up.

Many people find that filling the void is extremely helpful for them, and it’s something that works very well.

The goal here is not to feel a sense of emptiness that the person is no longer energetically attached to you. Instead, you should feel happy that you don’t need to rely on the individual for your own happiness, nor do you need to feel a sense of emptiness. Instead, allow someone or something else to receive this energy – including yourself.

When you cut these energetic ties, you’re finally able to:

  • Feel energized
  • Stop thinking of the other person
  • Not talk about the individual often
  • Etc.
