Until approximately two years ago I had never experienced, or even heard of, Reiki Healing. The first time I ever experienced it was when I had a distance healing that my sister bought for me as a gift two years ago. Because I had never heard of Reiki, I was kind of skeptical, but I had decided that I would be open to this new experience.
I had no idea how the session would go, or if she would even be able to “tune in” to my energy from so far away. Afterall, I was in North Carolina and she was in California. But, I went along with it anyway, but secretly I remained a skeptic. So, on the evening of my scheduled reading the phone rang at exactly 9:00 pm and when I answered I was surprised that she sounded exactly like the rest of us. I don’t know what I expected her to sound like but, it was anything but normal. We chatted for about 10 minutes and she went over a few things, and then she asked me to lay down flat on my back somewhere comfortable so that when ready she could begin the healing. Then we hung up the phone and she said she would call me back to discuss her findings in about 30 minutes. She also told me that I may experience the feeling of someone’s hands moving up and down my body, or I may begin to feel heavy and sleepy, but again, secretly I was like yeah right.
I layed down on my bed the way she instructed me to and tried to quiet my mind. Then, suddenly I could feel what felt like heat moving up and down my body. I continued to feel that for about 10 minutes, and then I began to feel very heavy and sleepy just like she said I would. The next thing I remember was the phone ringing over and over again, I had fallen asleep for a whole hour, and she had been trying to call back to finish the healing. But I was in such a deep sleep that I didn’t even hear the phone ringing and it was right beside me on the bed.
Once I woke up and was back on the phone with her I began listening to all of the things that she was saying, and every one of them were 100% true. Some things that she was saying were things that no one knew except for me, and at that moment I became a true believer. The conversation continued for about another hour while I listened intently to every single word that was coming out of her mouth. I was completely astonished at the truth behind everything that she was telling me.
Needless to say, after that healing my perspective changed and I became a believer. And, I also decided to try to learn all there is to learn about Reiki healing and the Law of Attraction and all of the things that both of those topics entail. I just wanted to share my experience with you guys in case there is someone out there that can benefit from learning about my personal experience. If you ever have a chance to get a Reiki distance healing you must look this woman up as she is amazing. Her name is Marisa Moris and she has a website, blog, and she has written a couple of books as well. I promise you that you will not be disappointed. Love and light to all!!
Etheric cords are what keep humanity connected. Without these cords we’d all be very singular and the world would be in absolute chaos. Etheric cords manifest from general interaction, love or fear. These cords keep us connected to those around us and our world as a whole. Everyone you meet during your life will connect with you through an etheric cord. Even a tiny interaction between people produces a slim etheric cord.
So what is an etheric cord exactly? Etheric cords look like silvery, floating cords/strings that connect from the etheric (spiritual) body to someone else’s etheric body. The most common place of connection is the solar plexus (top of the abdomen) as this is where the essence of ones self lies although I also quite commonly see etheric cords that run from the third eye chakra (positioned on the forehead) and the heart chakra (middle of the chest). These are cords that have shifted from the solar plexus overtime as two people have established who each other essentially is and their connection lies in the mind or the heart now. The cord can move again as their relationship changes.
Of course most people can’t see these cords but they most certainly effect everyone. Etheric cords promote feelings of empathy, sympathy, love, hate, attachment, connection, fear and loathing. Any feeling you have towards another person is usually transmitted through the etheric cord that connects you (unless you decide to tell them what you feel for them vocally!). This is how we can instinctively tell whether someone we’ve just met likes or dislikes us. Even if they’re being outwardly nice or pleasant to us we’ll still be able to pick up on any underlying feelings they have towards us.
Etheric cords can be strong or weak, thick or thin and bright/sparkly or dull/faded. Whatever feelings are running through these cords determines what they look like. The following are general explanations of why a cord may appear a certain way
Strong: Developed through close relationships such as with your mother, father, child, spouse, lover, long-term best friend or someone from a past life of yours
Weak: developed through interactions with strangers such as a shop assistant, friend of a friend etc. Walking past a stranger in the street shows an interesting reaction…usually a weak cord starts to develop and then dissolve very quickly as the distance becomes further apart. Weak cords are easily broken.
Thick: The thicker the cord the stronger the bond. Shown in people who have intense bonds with each other. e.g. A parent and child who are particularly close, lovers most commonly have very thick etheric cords connecting them and even arch enemies have thick etheric cords. Long-term rivalry and hate between two people causes a thick cord. Thick cords are most commonly associated with a few strong past life connections between two people.
Thin: Shown in a flimsy relationship between two people or one that isn’t strongly connected such as acquaintances, a marriage that is loveless but has no hate or resent in it, sex-only relationships, parent/child relationships that hold no real ground.
Bright/sparkly: These cords are beautiful to see and are very positive. They are present between people who hold deep love, care and understanding for each other. An etheric cord can only be bright and/or sparkly if it is strong and thick. People who are genuinely in love with each other, twin souls and very close parent/child relationships have bright/sparkly cords.
Dull/faded: These cords show negative feelings and distaste between people. Cords can change overtime so a loving, caring couple or friendship can go from initially having a bright/sparkly cord between them to a dull/faded one. Enemies and rivals who have a mutual hate for each other have a strong, dull cord attaching them
As you can see there are a variety of relationships that we come across daily and these all produce cords. Etheric cords transmit feelings so even if there is a weak or thin etheric cord between yourself and someone else, you could be unintentionally picking up some of their energy and feelings. Unexplained negative feelings can all come from complete strangers that we’ve hardly interacted with. This is why everyone needs to learn how to cut etheric cords.
Cutting Etheric Cords
Cutting etheric cords should be practiced by everyone and done regularly. The result of not cutting etheric cords are overwhelming feelings that don’t belong to you or feeling drained. Heath issues can often arise from not cutting cords regularly (Isn’t it funny how people catch the flu through the mere mention of it by someone else) If you work with people regularly in your job then this is essential. As I mentioned earlier, etheric cords are even produced between strangers so it’d make sense to not have their negativity transmitting to you on a daily basis. Think of it as a daily slothing away of unwanted energies. I mean, do you really need to remain connected to the waiter in the restaurant that you ate at last week and will most likely never see again…no.
Another instance where cords should be cut is when a relationship has ended and needs to be let go of. If you’re wallowing in self-pity over a break up or have feelings of resent, revenge and forgiveness then some good old cord cutting needs to be done. These cords can be quite strong and thick so sometimes it can take a while for them to be properly severed. It is an idea to cut these cords if you are trying to ‘get over’ someone too.
Grief is extremely relevant to etheric cords too. Whether it has to do with a relationship ending or the death of a loved one the feeling is usually the same: a physical pain/ache in the pit of our stomach. This happens when strong or thick etheric cords are being cut and the spiritual body can feel it in the solar plexus chakra. Because the cord is so strong and thick the pain carries through to the physical body.
Cutting everyday cords isn’t painful like cutting strong cords are. The result is usually renewed energy and a feeling of lightness and relief. It is also a very simple exercise to do:
While your in bed at night or when you have a quiet moment visualise your spiritual body and the silver etheric cords extending from it. See if you notice any dull or weak cords present…these are the ones you’ll want to cut. If you can’t see the cords then don’t worry, you’ll still be able to cut them. Now imagine yourself or one of your spirit guides or angels slicing through the unwanted cords swiftly and easily with a sword (the sword can be as ornate or as plain as you’d like as it’s your sword). Watch the cords disintegrate into nothing as they’re cut.
You can protect any positive, healthy cords by simply asking for them to be protected or by asking them to disappear/hold back for a minute or two. Some people recommend cutting cords that belong to yourself and a close person in your life if there are any arguments or negativity present between the two of you at the time but I don’t recommend this at all as it can weaken the cord which eventually leads to a weakened relationship.
