Many years ago, a friend showed me some pictures
of a friend of hers; we will call him Guy. They were the best pictures I
have ever seen of energy cords showing up in photographs. Yes, they
sometimes do show up in photographs, as energy cords are a real
energetic phenomena that is lying just outside the visual spectrum.
Cameras can pick up frequencies and wave forms that our eyes cannot. Guy
was having health problems, and had contacted my friend who was a
healer. He had also brought some pictures along that a family member had
taken of him inside his house. They were all just regular family
pictures, except that on many of them there were light beams, straight
and curved, that seem to be connected to his body. They would start or
end on different places of his body. One picture was even more
incredible: he was posing behind a kitchen counter and the wall behind
him was visible through his half transparent body! These were real
pictures (digital cameras did not exist yet), no tricks, no fakery. I
had met Guy one time before on a sweat lodge that was an unusual event
too. I had gone on several sweat lodges my friend was holding, and it
can very, very hot in it. But that day, no matter how many hot stones
and water was used, we couldn't get it even warm. During the
preparations, I had noticed Guy, who was there for the first time, and I
had psychically picked up that although he was a very nice person all
the way through, there was something strange about him. I kept seeing
him as Knight's Templar, with sword and all, on a horse.
later visited my friend, and she showed me the pictures to get my
opinion about him. She then told me that he was a bit overly interested
in the Templars! He would go places dressed up as a templar, and/or
carrying his large Templar's sword! My friend had to tell him that he
cannot do such a thing in our society. It was obvious he was still
connected with his past life as a Templar. But there was more. He had
been part of a magical circle. He had left the circle, but then his
health problems started up. He didn't see the link, but to my friend and
I it was obvious. His former magician friends has attached energy cords
to him, to suck his energy. Energy cords not only serve for the sucking
of energy, but also for gaining information (material and spiritual)
from that person, and a means to control that person. This was also the
reason why the sweat lodge was not even getting warm. His presence was
sufficient to drain the energy around him. In this event it was heat
Now, you might think that all this is just a nice story, or
it only happens with people involved with magic. But in reality, it
happens all the time. The only difference is that magicians are aware of
the existence of energy cords and are deliberately using this
phenomenon. We all have energy cords with the people around us. The
moment we have a relationship with somebody an energy cord is created
that runs from one person to the other. This is a real energetic
flexible beam that connects the energy bodies of two people together.
Some clairvoyants can see the cords, and some people who had
out-of-the-body-experiences have also seen them. Usually they run from
solar plexus to solar plexus, but the can start or end in any other
place of the body. I have seen pictures of people were the cords connect
to their head. That would suggest mental connection; mental manipulation
if used for bad purposes, or inspiration if used for good purposes. You
can look around on the web. People have been posting these kind of
pictures, usually not knowing what these flexible light beams are. (Some
of the light phenomena in pictures have other causes, and are not energy
The more emotional a relationship is, or the longer it has
existed, or the closer connection you have with somebody, the stronger
this energy cord is going to be. This is a normal phenomenon, it is the
way we connect with other people. The energy cord allows us to feel what
the other person feels, even if he is thousands of miles away. More
gifted people can even feel what the other person is doing or thinking.
In regards to just plain energy, some people are what I personally
call "vacuum-cleaners". They live a life that is usually self-centered,
which also implies that they tend to be rigid, dogmatic, controlling.
Their way of life requires a lot of energy to keep their thus 'armored'
energy structure (the body's energy matrix) the way it is. Life energy
wants to flow freely, and these 'armored' people have made their energy
(you can say their emotions and thinking) so rigid that they have
blocked their own energy flow to a certain extent. It is like an
artificial dam that blocks the flow of the river. The dam has to be
maintained and that requires energy. These people become
'vacuum-cleaners', that is, they unconsciously suck the energy of the
people around them. Have you ever felt drained and tired after a
conversation with a person? This is the result of that person sucking
energy from you through the energy cord during the conversation when you
really connected with that person.
This is not unusual. People are
so unaware of the energy body and the energy structures that lie at the
basis of the physical world, unaware that we exchange energy all the
time with our environment, and especially with other people. It is
through energy cords that we all have with the people around us, and
especially those who are close to us, that we manipulate our friends,
our colleagues, or 'loved' ones; AND that we allows ourselves to be
taken advantaged of too. We all have to exercise self-responsibility in
our thinking, our emotions, our actions, but also in our energy. We can
voluntarily give energy to others in order to help them, but giving too
much will deplete our own energy reserves, and this will result in
health problems. Health problems will also result when we are not
consciously giving, but somebody is constantly draining our energy
because they CAN. By this I mean, that because people are unaware of
their energy body, they leave themselves wide open for energy predators.
Do you leave your house wide open for thieves to come by? Your energy
system creates your physical body. You don't leave the it open for other
people to steal your energy, or manipulate you through the energy cords.
So what do you do about it?
There are many techniques to 'close' your
energy system. You are really closing it in the literal sense. Our
energy systems are open ended systems that constantly connect with all
other energy systems in our environment. If you would literally close
off your energy stem, you would die. What needs to be done, is putting
up a filter that allows only the good, beneficial energies to enter, and
block all unwanted, harmful energies. In the first place comes
intention. Your intention has to be very clear and precise.
Determination is very important. A 'maybe it might work' is not good
enough. You have to be clear, direct, strong, determined, a hundred
percent warrior. You have to know clearly what you want and what you
don't want. And don't allow for any security breaches in you energy
body. Most important you have to maintain your filters, every day, until
it has become part of your attitude.
An example of general
protection of your energy body, is to visualize a cocoon of white energy
around your body, allowing beneficial energy in, but reflecting all
harmful energies. You can also imagine a mirror-like coating on the
outside of this white cocoon that reflects the harmful energies away.
If somebody is sending you negative energy, you can program your energy
body to send it back to the sender. Always send from a neutral point of
view. You are doing this out of self-protection, don't allow yourself to
get negative too. Don't be angry, don't be upset, don't do this out of
revenge. This kind of attitude weakens you energy system, and you will
become even more vulnerable.
If you want to keep your connection
with a particular person, you could put a filter (like a camera or photo
filter) in your energy cord.
Some people like to visualize a golden
rain shower that washes away all negativity, but with energy cord
problems, you want a permanent solution.
In case you want to sever
'ties' with somebody, because the relationship has become unhealthy, you
need to cut the energy cord with that person. How do you do that? This
has to be done correctly and not in a 'new agey' way. But first I have
to tell you a Greek myth because it specifically tells about cutting
energy cords, although in a symbolic way as all myths are.
(of twelve) labors of Hercules was to kill the Lernean Hydra. From the
murky waters of the swamps near a place called Lerna, the hydra would
rise up and terrorize the countryside. A monstrous serpent with nine
heads, the hydra attacked with poisonous venom. Nor was this beast easy
prey, for one of the nine heads was immortal and therefore
indestructible. Hercules set off to hunt the nine-headed menace, but he
did not go alone. His trusty nephew, Iolaus, was by his side. Iolaus,
who shared many adventures with Hercules, accompanied him on many of the
twelve labors. First, Hercules lured the creature from the safety of its
den by shooting flaming arrows at it. Once the hydra emerged, Hercules
seized it. The monster was not so easily overcome, though, for it wound
one of its coils around Hercules' foot and made it impossible for the
hero to escape. With his club, Hercules attacked the many heads of the
hydra, but as soon as he smashed one head, two more would burst forth in
its place! To make matters worse, the hydra had a friend of its own: a
huge crab began biting the trapped foot of Hercules. Quickly disposing
of this nuisance, most likely with a swift bash of his club, Hercules
called on Iolaus to help him out of this tricky situation. Each time
Hercules bashed one of the hydra's heads, Iolaus held a torch to the
headless tendons of the neck. The flames prevented the growth of
replacement heads, and finally, Hercules had the better of the beast.
Once he had removed and destroyed the eight mortal heads, Hercules
chopped off the ninth, immortal head. This he buried at the side of the
road leading from Lerna to Elaeus, and for good measure, he covered it
with a heavy rock.
The long necks of the hydra are energy cords.
Cutting an energy cord is only a short term solution, because the energy
cords will automatically re-establish itself. In short time, if not
immediately, it will connect to your body again. Therefore, when you sit
down in meditation, and imagine cutting the energy cord, you will also
have to burn shut the end of the energy cord that leads to the other
person. It is also a good idea to burn shut the little piece that is
still left on your energy body. You have to do this really good,
otherwise it will recover and connect itself to you again.
feel for it, can can create yourself a ritual around it. Whatever works
for you best will do. The cutting of the cord happens with the will, as
the will is the director of energies. You could also use a real or
ritual knife to emphasize the action. The Buddhists use a kartika (see
picture at end of page) for this kind of practice.
How do you know
where the energy cord connects to your body? Usually it is at the solar
plexus, but it can be anywhere on your body, even at the sides or the
back. Go into meditation, or into a peaceful, calm state of mind, and
just feel around. Pay attention to any variation in your energy field,
or subtle impressions, or images. Knowing the exact location is not that
important. The moment you feel an energy cord somehow in your energy
field is enough.
You also have to understand that the place where
the energy cord was connected has been traumatized if the connection was
a negative one. So, after cutting the cord, bring some healing energy
(white, golden, or whatever color you associate with healing) to that
area. you can just visualize it, or bring it there with your hands, or
with any other method.
It is also good to check yourself
periodically for any negative attachments. Although don't do this out of
fear, as when your attitude of daily self-protection has become strong,
people wont be able to transmit negative energy through the energy cords
connecting them to you (you want to keep your positive connections going
with most people), and those people you have cut the cords with won't be
able to create any attachments anymore. It is all about knowing what you
want, be clear about it, and be strong all the time. It is a law of
nature that any weakness in a biological system creates fertile ground
You might also think that you could call for your
guardian angels, St. Michael, Shiva or Shakti etc. to help you with
clearing any negativity. The truth is, these spiritual beings, although
powerful, will come down to help you once or twice, but they have better
things to do than to hang around you in order to solve problems that you
can and should solve yourself.
A Kartika, a type of spiritual ritual tool that
is sometimes called a chopper or axe. It is used to sever attachments,
that are also known as cords, and its use symbolizes the severance of
all material and worldly bonds or any circumstance that calls for
binding or cutting off. The Kartika cuts and severs those cords and
attachments that are no longer serving a necessary purpose in our lives.
