FAQ: Cord Cutting and Energy Fields

I did two group channeling events yesterday and attended a drumming circle and Lightworker discussion group the night before. Variations of the following questions have repeated themselves several times. The idea of “cord cutting” or “need for protection” seems to trigger many Lightworkers as being “fear based” or “uncompassionate.” “Don’t these people need me?” “Who am I to say no to someone in need?” “Aren’t we all One, and if so, why would we need to protect ourselves from anyone or anything?”

I will share some answers to those questions below, but I do want to underscore that the post about Protecting Your Energy Field is specifically about energetic vampirism. This phenomenon extends beyond simple, balanced, loving energy exchange. Rather than emotional cords, you could think of these as feeding tubes that attach to you at emotional weak spots with the sole purpose of draining your energy so that the person doesn’t need to bother connecting with Source on his or her own.

This is codependency in the extreme, in that the process ultimately discourages people from finding their own inner Light, Divinity and wholeness. By continuing to deny situations of energy drain, Lightworkers miss an opportunity to shine brighter, to grow stronger and to bring their message and gifts to more people who are ready to take responsibility for themselves and the world we’re all co-creating. By ignoring the fact that some people really do project all their inner aspects, including both Shadow and Light, onto others, Lightworkers actually validate dysfunctional, “dark” behavior. Tough Love is still Love. In fact, speaking the Truth is Love is one of the highest expressions of Love, because it requires a release of any attachment to how others receive your words. People say “actions speak louder than words,” and you could consider protecting your energy field as a very loud speaking of Tough Love words — action on the inner plane, which radically ripples out and echoes into the collective world.

2012 offers chances for a complete, global system upgrade. Instead of troubleshooting all the broken, dysfunctional systems, humanity can co-create an entirely new grid — with new rules and new, healthier, holistic ways of being. An alcoholic cannot fully recover from alcohol abuse without addressing the gaping holes in the psyche, emotions, auric field, etc., which result in the dependency; the codependent spouse who constantly picks up the alcoholic’s mess makes life just functional enough to discourage any real, core change. Similarly, our world will not shift on a grand scale if Lightworkers continue to support behaviors, attitudes and perspectives that limit and weaken ourselves and others.

2012 encourages us all to empower ourselves with “power to, not power over.” No more manipulation through conditional Love! No more turning a blind eye to patterns that systematically harm, weaken, shame or destroy others’ connection to Source. 2012 is a time of quantum leaps, and quantum leaping takes energy. Most of the masses on this planet remain drugged and hypnotized, so those people who have awakened enough to connect with Source, to experiment with Law of Attraction, and to imagine the possibilities of a world far beyond that which we have known before … those people have a job to do! That job is simply to help raise the vibrational level of this planet, and you can do that much easier when your own energy remains intact enough to amplify instead of flatline.

We’re talking about a complex and important topic — a topic that highlights much of this year’s potential for radical change. I provided some additional discussion in the comments section of the original post, and these two comments seemed helpful to bump up to main post status here:

Hi Laura,
Found this very interesting. I have dealt with these same things for the past few months and I found the best way was to work on my own shadow areas and see myself in other people. Although I agree with the cutting cords, I ask for them all to be cut accept ones that maybe attached to my heart. The idea of this comes from we are all one and this is where my compassion and understanding of these people (we) come from. My vibration stays higher when I think this way. I see people as wounded souls sometimes, ones that need that bit more help and although its hard, its not as hard as the guilt I feel if I cut them off. It doesn’t feel right. Any words of advice on this is greatly appreciated. Please tell me if you agree with the heart cords. Many thanks for all your words of guidance and wisdom. :0) Much love

I agree in the sense that if you feel guilty for cutting the heart cords then that will have the opposite of the desired effect. Guilt encourages major energy drain! The Shadow Work is definitely important, and I’ve written on that many times before.

Ultimately, yes, we are all one, but while we are in physical form and dealing with people who aim to control rather than respect, we can still be drained. As a species we are moving into a higher vibration where this behavior simply won’t be able to continue. Shifting things on our inner level — those things we do or do not consider acceptable –will help the entire planetary shift. If you have not read David Wilcock’s work about Financial Tyranny, please do so. It’s long and intense, but it demonstrates better than most things how these inner patterns of victimhood and letting ourselves be sucked dry by parasites are actually creating a reality of exploitation, war, slavery, etc. As within, so without. Here’s the link to that book-length series of posts.

Also, consider that viewing others as somehow in need of your energy, as in they can’t shine their own light, actually limits them. Feeling Unconditional Love for oneself and others does not mean becoming food for an energy vampire. Unconditional Love honors people where they are but also recognizes that it’s OK to set your own healthy boundaries. If a child repeatedly hit another child would you just send love to both children and not intervene in any way? Or would you set firm rules about what could or could not occur on your watch? “An ye harm none, do what thou wilt” is a pagan proverb, similar to St. Augustine of Hippo’s: “Love, and do what thou wilt.” Love is hugely important, but true love does not seek to control others against their will. Cutting inappropriate cords allows people to love more freely, completely and unconditionally because it frees us from manipulations via conditional love. … imho, anyway …

If you’ve not listened to this Michael Tsarion interview yet, I also recommend it.

LOL, lots of homework! You can also just do whatever keeps your vibration high, since this is really only talking about inappropriate, dysfunctional cords, not all love relationships. 🙂

Please go at your own pace, and realize you can ask for help, both on and off world. We’re all growing, expanding, and dealing with previously unimaginable options and possibilities. Life in the fast lane can feel fun and invigorating! When it doesn’t, I suggest you slow down. Pull over at a rest stop. Take a deep breath, walk around a bit, hug a tree, eliminate some waste, and then get back on the road. You’ll enjoy the journey much more if you can laugh while remembering that this thing called Life is quite a trip! Yes, indeed, what a long, strange trip it’s been, and I can’t wait to see what’s next!

    Laura – I attended your channeling last night and this morning did a meditation with the Angels that spent alot of time cutting inappropriate or unneeded cords. I have felt noticeably lighter since. Thank you! I had done this meditation CD before, but hadn’t fully grasped what was needed. It was an entirely different experience today.

    Really appreciated all you shared with us last night and look forward to connecting again. Blessings to you!

      Hi Cheryl,
      Wonderful to have met you, and I’m so glad you found the cord cutting helpful and that you’re feeling lighter. We will keep you posted on the next event. Good news: David’s got some weekends off again in March, so we should be able to set something up in the later part of the month.
      Many blessings!

    I wanted to contribute to inform you about Rose Rosetree’s work and her book Cut Cords of Attachment. Unless you learn from the subconscious contents of the cord, it won’t be properly cut. Her website has a lot of information. http://www.roserosetree.com/blog
