Etheric Cord Cutting

Etheric cord cutting is a technique used to cut the negative energies from others that may have attached themselves to you or that you may have sent out to another. Using this method, Archangel Michael is called to facilitate the spiritual healing and clear the negative energies..

During the course of our normal day, we have many interactions with others, both sending and receiving energy. Many people, including myself are quite empathic and tend to absorb the energy of others, both positive and negative. If it seems at the end of the day you are mentally exhausted, it may be a good idea to cleanse your aura and body of the negative energies that have attached themselves to your chakras.

What Causes Etheric Cords To Form?

Most etheric cords form between the people you are closest to, including a spouse, parents, siblings, and also co-workers and friends that you spend a good amount of time with. The cords can be thought of as similar to surgical tubing connecting you to another via your chakras.

Many times the cords form because of fear or distress, anger, unforgiveness, negativity, or other life challenges. Energy travels back and forth within this tube from your chakras to the other person.

Cutting these cords does not mean that you are ending a relationship with a particular person or that you will lose contact. Removing the negative energy between two people actually allows love to form and grow in a healthy way.

If you have ever started the day in a great mood and then had a run-in with a negative person and felt completely drained after the encounter, chances are an etheric cord attached itself to you and that person is siphoning energy from you.

Clearing and removing the cords is a spiritual healing practice that is best performed daily to keep your energy high and your chakras in balance.

How To Cut Etheric Cords

Find a quiet spot where you can be alone for a few minutes. Begin by taking a deep breath in through your nose and exhaling slowly through your mouth. Repeat a total of three times.

Close your eyes and call Archangel Michael either out loud or in your mind by calling his name three times. Once you can feel his comforting presence ask of him the following:

“Archangel Michael, help me heal by cutting all etheric cords that have attached themselves to me and sending them back to whom they belong. Fill the openings with beautiful healing white light.”

If you close your eyes while asking for the cords to be cut, you may be able to actually see the cords drifting away like a ribbon in your mind or physically feel them detaching from various chakras in your body. You may get a sense or vision of the person that you were attached to via the cords.

After a few minutes, you should feel a renewed sense of energy and calmness. Make this a daily practice to keep your energy your own.

  1. Hello Laura,

    Thank you so much for writing the piece above. I will definitely be cutting the cords to cleanse myself of negative energies.

    Thanks again,


  2. I have only just discovered Cord Cutting and am going to see someone today to help me re-energise. Very excited at the prospect of being free of the mental, physical and emotional drain I have felt for longer than I can even recall. The last relationship I was in almost destroyed my soul with constant emotional abuse where I still feel him draining me of my positivity but know there is now a solution. Big sigh of relief. Being emphatic has its benefits but I look forward to detaching myself from the negativity. I will definitely post again to recount my experience today

    • Vanessa,

      I wish you all the best. Detaching yourself from the negativity is the best thing you can do. You will feel lighter and happier.

  3. i am posting your link to friends and on Facebook. Again Thank you soooo much for your reading. you really blew me away with your accuracy and showed me some new things about myself, and to arrive on 10/10/10 at 10pm. i never thought about my being born at 10:10 am it never occured to me! You are a Blessing Laura.


  4. I have been suffering with upper shoulder and neck pain and headaches now for over 2 wks. Day before yesterday I had a deep tissue massage combined with cranio-sachral and reiki. I felt a little better yesterday but back in pain today. It occurred to me that I may have some cord cutting to do along with my daily grounding and protection rituals. I’ll let you know how I feel after I cut the cords and have another massage treatment.

    • Hi Lisa,

      Something else you may want to try is pendulum dowsing to find the source of your pain. I don’t know if you are familiar with that or not. When done using a good system of questioning, it can be quite helpful in determining if the source of the pain is mental or emotional and from what area of your life it has come from. I would recommend the book from Andrea Hess, called Unlock Your Intuition: How to Accurately and Reliably Access Your Most Valuable Resource, as a good place to start learning pendulum dowsing.

  5. Hi Laura,
    Im Dom, age23. I have something to share with you. After a messy ending with a very strange and neurotic older woman, i thought i was mad for thinking she was a witch or a vampire! I kept hearing her thoughts, and it was as if she was spoiling everything good what came. Eventually what i did, was a deep and sad meditaion, where i began to hear the voice of my inner child, calling out that he wanted to go home, and her voice saying “im cutting it, im cutting it”, because i think she realised that she was in alot of trouble for what she was up to.
    Now that ive found out what this means, i feel assured that i can now finally get rid of her from my thoughts and my life forever, so Thankyou so much! Any other guidance is much welcome!

    • Hi Meena,

      Welcome to Intuitive Journal. It is nice to meet you! I would need to know more about the situation you are referring to before offering any opinions.

  6. After 13 years of friendship, my friend and i crossed physical boundaries, not in total, but enough for regret on my part and rejection on his. After initiating the boundary breach, he then turned around and rejected me after i accepted the jester. This was very hurtful to me and our relationship has not been the same since. I know how to let go of others with a clean break, meaning no contact physically and no connection emotionally, but wishing them well for an indefinite amount of time(but usually permanent); but in this relationship I fell i must work through and stay present in. I’m good at letting go, accept when i have to stay. It’s been rough, but this helped. Thank You

  7. Thank you Laura for this valuable information.
    This was the only thing that helped my young 3 year old son from feeling better after 2 weeks of having an etheric cord attached to him. His mood had completely changed once the cord was attached to him, and he was not himself. The night I finally found your information and ask Archangel Michael for help he awoke the next morning and was back to himself again, not to mention that he had been backed up for 2 weeks and everything “cleared” once I asked for his cords to be cut.
    I have since used this prayer more than once on both my sons and myself and see the improvements! Thank you so much again to you and Archangel Michael!

  8. I have to admit I am not religious at all however I am concerned that for literally years I wake up at 3:15 every night…for the last year things are happening when I wake up at 3:15. Nothing overly, just weird. Bathroom scale came on by itself, dogs won’t go into bathroom during this time, blue light in door way, tapping on shoulder, blankets pulled tight, hair being moved but not sure if dreaming? House has no past, lived here 12 years however before moving into house still woke up at 3:15 for about 2 years prior but no incidents until this house…just so tired…most incidents happen when alone…couple incidents with hubby there but he sleeps through anything however he is well aware of the 3:15 every night on the dot….checked if neighbors leave then, no…checked if anything comes on in house then, no…did research and it does say this is an awakening for earth actually when dew is created…so maybe sensitive to that? Don’t know…

  9. Hello-
    I am not sure I can call this psychic ability, hence here.
    1. I have strong sense of smell for eg if milk will be spoiled in days, I can tell. What’s in food, if my hubby lies about smoking, I can tell. I used to smell dead rat is my hallway, at times freshly baked cookies or someone smoking on my face.

    2. I saw my demised aunt standing next to me when young soon after the news came as if she came to heed a visit.

    3. I have strong hunch when something or someone close to me is sad or in trouble/ thinking about me.

    4. I work in customer support. When the day starts, at times I can clearly sense if a client is angry or unhappy with something or know something is not right or have this strong feeling if my boss has anything to say or he’s upset.

    5. I also taste funny things at times. I taste sweetness in my mouth or at times too sour like lemon or at times tinge of some specific taste.

    6. At my parent’s new rental, I had hard time to sleep as at night I used to feel pressure on my chest as if someone was on top of me and also once I felt someone held me tight on bed and I couldn’t move and whatever it was it was touching my body. I used to wake up sweaty and shocked.

    5. My and my friend were on bike and all of a sudden a dog crossed our path. I still don’t know who it was but someone held my hand and kept it on right side of his head while him riding bike. We had an accident and we fell on the road divider and thanks to this unknown force, his head fell in my palm and he dint break his head. This really saved his life.

    Don’t know whether all this is just mind games or me.

  10. Hello Laura,

    This is great advice! Thank you so much. As an empath, I have found cord-cutting to be medicinal. I would like to make a suggestion, that when requesting Archangel Michael to cut a cor or cords, he or Archangel Raphael should be asked to seal the area where the cord was severed. If left open, this will leave a person vulnerable to absorbing too much of other individuals’ energy. In my case, I found this out after, I had several cords cut. I guess I must have been like Swiss cheese. I began to overeat like crazy and I had to put shields up a few times a day. Later, I learned that it’s crucial to seal and heal the area where the cord was attached. I had Raphael fix this, and I am fine now.

  11. I have a question please. Does cutting etheral cords have side effects? Lots of times when i do spiritual things I suffer for it with bad headaches, migraines, and wonder if that will happen if i cut a cord?

  12. Mahalo for your post!

    Perception: Cultural diversity, beliefs, practices, folklore, and remedial cures have, in recent years, changed.

    A continuous ‘attachment/’s’ has affected my life spiritually, physically, psychologically and at times, emotionally for about 16 years. As a child, the seed of our universal creator, in whom I call God, had been planted in me. This seed (love, light, hope and peace) is the foundation that holds me… up.

    Like certain medication, food, material or sound, each individual’s body reacts to it differently.

    This simple prayer brought a whole lot of ‘stuff’ up, out and then back again. My body went semi-numb. All pain had left. I could feel tugs/pulls from my head, neck, between the shoulder blades, chest, back, throat, arms and legs (chakra clogged/cord removal :>) whoosh. I became a bit nauseous when asking to ‘seal’ the areas – especially in the throat area. I didn’t consciously ask or want to see who it was, but will when the time is right.

    Apparently, it seem that in my case, those who ‘connect’ are well aware of it an enjoy the benefits.

    Now I sit here in double pain (between the shoulder blades). It was expected. More work to be done. Hey, 16 years of continuous attacks/attachments has its drawbacks. :>

    I thank God, his son Jesus, Archangel Michael, Archangel Raphael, our Aumakua guardian angels), Anela (angels) and universal, celestial warriors of light.

    Ahui hou kakou.

  13. I sense energy. Since I was a child I could feel it. Still do. It always frightens me. Because I don’t understand. Sometimes it’s chasing me. Watching me. Especially in the dark. I’m 30 now and all I want to do is understand, develop protective skills and help others who experience the same. Your information was helpful but I feel im still missing pieces.
