4 Steps to Clear Your Energetic Field

Early in my training, an intuitive coach emphasized the importance of cutting cords with a client after each session.  Once, I forgot. Yikes! I worked with a client recovering from severe back pain following a kidney infection. After the session, I was in a hurry to pick up my daughter from school and forgot to cut cords. Later that evening, I started feeling pain in my back along with sadness and fatigue. Where was this coming from? Shoot! I forgot to cut cords after my last session and so had empathically taken on her pain and feelings. Once I realized, I immediately cut the cords and within an hour, the pain and sadness were gone.
What Is Cord Cutting?
The removal of energetic attachments to people, whether it be a client, a family member, a friend, a colleague, etc. It doesn’t mean we don’t care about that person. Instead, it is a form of energetic hygiene for ourselves. This is important because we don’t want to take on the physical or emotional imprints of others. It’s not good for our physical or emotional health. We can still hold space for someone, love them, and be their friend, partner, lover, or more, but in a healthy way that doesn’t involve being attached to them energetically. Luckily, there are several ways that you can energetically cut cords with someone who can work for anyone.



Set Intention – Start by setting an intention for cutting a cord and visualize the person and/or speak their name in your mind. 

Call In Spirit Guides and/or Angels – Ask your angels and/or spirit guides to help you cut cords with that person and/or situation.

Visualization – Visualize the severing of the cord between you and the person that you want to cut cords with.

Send Love & Gratitude – Imagine love flowing from your heart, out of your auric field, and landing in theirs.
