Our relationships generate energy that can nourish us – or that fails to nourish us, drains us, or damages us. Psychic cords indicate chronic energy compromise. And resolving psychic cords opens a path to profound transformation, chakra healing, and renewed relationship potential.
What is a psychic cord?
Psychic cords are energetic attachments that can form between people. Cords most often extend from the chakra(s) of one person to the corresponding chakras of another. Individuals will develop psychic cords when both relationship partners believe – either consciously or unconsciously – that their wholeness depends on the other.
For each person, this belief originates from different experiences related to their history and especially to unfulfilled needs, unresolved trauma, and/or karmic patterns. In the case of parent-child cords, the child’s dependence on the parent is integral to a cord, but that alone does not form a cord.
How do cords affect us?
A psychic cord will produce minor, chronic, or severe problems that compromise chakra function and impact self-expression. For example, cords can be the root cause of unresolved anger, fear, or grief, poor interpersonal boundaries, loss of personal power, lack of creativity and will, low self-esteem, and health issues. Chronic digestive issues, weight challenges, asthma, physical pain, autoimmune illness, and much more can all be rooted in chakra dysfunction caused by a cord. These symptoms can be present with parent-child cords, but also with cords between spouses or friends.
How does the release process work?
The Psychic Cord Release ProcessSM utilizes a step-by-step inquiry and dialogue, which invite a person to acknowledge and/or discover the depth of their relationship experience. Throughout the process, I guide my client to uncover unresolved emotions, unconscious beliefs, and self-limiting reactive strategies and behaviors. Within this exploration the origin of the cord and its chakra location are revealed – and then deep healing begins.
During this second phase of the process I carefully watch the energy present and expressing in the affected chakra(s). This information is essential. It guides my every question and the direction of unfolding dialogue until the cord dissolves.
Because the Psychic Cord Release Process is chakra-based, the depth of work is both gentle and efficient. Releasing a cord takes only one session.
Once the cord releases, an individual enters a period of integration. This phase of work will be addressed over one or two sessions. Creating new life strategies, supporting chakra vitality, improving self-advocacy through communication and action, and developing full, healthy chakra expression are typical intentions for integration.
Does releasing a cord end a relationship?
The intention of this release work is not to sever relationships. The intention is to dissolve the cord and the underlying issues and reactions that held the cord in place. Without cords, the once-attached individuals are free to experience themselves and the other as whole. Although the release allows both relationship partners to grow and evolve, it is usually the one who has consciously engaged in the cord release process that sees the most definitive transformation.
I created the Psychic Cord Release Process in 1983 – and it has been central to my practice ever since. This work is honoring and accelerating. It unburdens the body, heart, and soul in elegant and effective ways.
