During this intense energetic shift, it is extremely important to be aware of our energy bodies and of the energy that we are both giving and receiving.
Our children are especially sensitive and are often picking up on feelings that are not even theirs. We are healing as a collective, and if you are unaware of this, the symptoms can be overwhelming.
With this great healing, we are purging much of our karmas and coming back into balance.
Often times we have energetic attachments to other people and experiences that are either draining or influencing our energy body. This is why cord cutting is such a powerful tool in developing a strong sense of self and awareness as we are then only feeling our own energy, not the energy of others.
And in a world full of so many distractions and artificial stimulations, it is of utmost importance to know what is your energy and what isn’t.
A cord cutting exercise could prove to be quite helpful for your child, especially if you are having behavioral difficulties or issues with them, or if they are doing things that seem really out of character. If they are old enough, you can walk them through it or listen to a guided meditation, and if they are too little, you can perform the exercise for them.
Simply ask them to think of someone that they feel they need to say something to, or perhaps had a “not so nice” experience with. Often there will still be an energetic attachment that will be interfering with their energy body. Everyone benefits when we cut cords as we are then stronger in our own energy and are not interfering with one another.
Cord cutting is a great way to help us live in the Now. Often times, we become caught up in the past or else in the future, thinking about situations or experiences, both good and bad. The problem with this is that we are not living in the present. So if you find yourself obsessing over a memory or some other thought that won’t let go, perhaps a cord cutting with that is just what you need to feel more present.
Sometimes these cords are from sources that we are unaware of, so in this case, just put out your intention that you would like to cut any cords that are not serving your child’s Higher purpose.
Cord Cutting Exercise
(you can guide your child or do it with them as well)
Take a few deep breaths. Feel your body relax. Breathe in, breathe out, and feel your body relax more with each breath.
Imagine tree roots growing out the bottom of your feet. Feel these roots reach down into the center of Mother Earth. She is loving, just like a mother. You can imagine a glowing light there, and it is full of love for you. You could also imagine a tree trunk growing out from the bottom of your back and reaching down to the center of the Earth. Feel the love of Mother Earth here.
Now I would like you to think of a person who you feel as though there is something between you that needs to be said or healed. Maybe there is someone that you feel doesn’t understand you. Or perhaps they hurt your feelings, or did something that you are not happy with. Or maybe something else happened, an experience that upset you.
(if your child can’t think of anyone or anything, it is ok. This can be done by you for them. You can simply ask to see any cords that are not serving their Highest purpose)
Your child (or you) may notice these cords (seeing/sensing/feeling) anywhere in their body. Perhaps attached to their heart center, or in their back. I have felt my own attached to my throat before as well, especially when there were many words that had not been said.
Once your child (or you) can see/sense/feel these cords, take a moment to notice what they look like. What color are they? Do they have a smell? Do they make a noise? What texture are they? Are they smooth, rough, shiny, slippery? How thick are they? Let your child know that there is no wrong answer and everybody’s are different.
Take a moment to notice where they attach to you and to the other person.
Once you see/feel/sense these cords, call in a Spirit Guide to cut them for you. You do not need to do anything but give permission for these cords to be cut.
You can instruct your child to call in a particular Source that you feel comfortable with, or you can let them try and see who shows up for them.
The cord cutting will be easy and effortless.
Once they are cut, you will be able to envision these cords either coiling up or coming back to your child in some way, and the other person’s cords going back to them. They might snap back quickly, or fizzle like electricity, or sparkle and dance lightly. Again, there is no wrong answer.
Now it is time to offer love and blessings to this other person/situation that the cords were attached to and also to give thanks to your Spirit Guide for their help.
You can explain to your child that this other person was in their life to teach them something, and that by offering love does not mean that they agree with what they did, but by loving and forgiving others, we take back our own power. We actually love ourselves more when we extend love to others.
Your child will now feel stronger and more secure in their energy body. It is nice to talk about their experience afterwards and ask them how they feel now. They may feel lighter, happier, or perhaps more peaceful.
You may be surprised who your child will choose to cut cords with, as often it isn’t someone you would expect. It doesn’t have to be someone that there was a bad experience with either, as many times the best meaning people can become attached and drain us, or we unknowingly interfere with one another.
Cutting cords will not harm a relationship and you will notice that it creates a space and a lightness for a higher vibrating form of your relationship to occur. And if this relationship wasn’t for the best, then this person may fade from your life.
When my daughter, Summer, performed this exercise, she chose someone that I was at first a little surprised at. But she had her own personal reasons and has since noticed an improvement in her relationship with this person. Our children are highly intuitive, so trust who they choose. I found it so cute how it was our beloved dog, Sidda, who showed up as her Spirit Guide to cut the cords. Our Spirit Guides have many forms as well!
Use your own intuition to tweak this exercise to suit you and your child, and don’t be afraid to get creative with the visualizations.
You also may notice that it might have to be repeated, depending on the situation and the strength of the attachments. Sometimes seeing this person or thinking of them may cause an energetic charge to occur, and therefore the cords would have to be cut again.
You can have your child state an affirmation as well, such as “I am released from all cords that do not serve me.” or “I am free of all cords and energetic attachments” or “I am strong in my own energy.”
Affirmations are powerful and can help reinforce the strength of the cord cutting. They will also let your child feel in control of themselves which is incredibly empowering, not only for children, but for anyone to know that they have a considerable amount of control over their situation andthemselves.
I had my son, Shep, write affirmations out several times a day for a while when we were dealing with some intense cords and energy shifts. We personalized them to him with the emphasis that he was strong in who he is, is in control of himself, and that he can trust himself to do the right thing. And I am happy to say that it made a huge difference in his mood and behavior which was becoming quite unpredictable.
You can also let your child know that this is an exercise that they can do on their own as well whenever they are not feeling as sure of themselves or “off.” This whole exercise really doesn’t take long at all, and once practiced, it will happen easily and with little effort.
Thankfully, a little bit of awareness goes a long way, and with the proper tools we can be riding these intense waves of energy rather than feel like we are drowning in them.
I hope that you have found this helpful. I would love to hear from you!
Love and blessings,
