Energy Cords: What They Are, Cord Removal & Breakups

As you interact with people throughout the day you are connecting with them through invisible cords of energy. This is a good thing as it allows us to feel and basically interact with our surroundings.

Most of these connections with people are casual or they feel good. Not triggering. Therefore, making them super easy to move on from or simply not feel drained.


When you’re triggered or fully connected with someone, in conversation, sex or experiences those cords attach. Attaching you and the other person(s) on an energetic basis. This is something that can happen both in-person and online. It can even happen through thoughts and actions. I mean, how many thoughts are you having throughout the day about people that do not serve you in the highest? eg: thoughts about your ex or someone at work you don’t like/doesn’t like you. These thoughts also come with a feeling and energy. A feeling and an energy that simply doesn’t leave you feeling good.

Being able to remove those energy cords helps you to let go, heal, let go and stop you being dependent on someone else’s energy to make you feel good. Even if that energy feels good to begin with, which it can, you never want to be plugged into the energy of another person.

Instead you want to cultivate your own energy. Then set healthy boundaries and take care of it. So, that you feel good, you experience what you need to for your own soul growth and are not at the mercy of other peoples energy, emotions or moods (co-dependence).

Why is cord removal helpful after a breakup?
We have touched on this above but let’s look a little deeper.

Although you may have physically moved on there will be some residual energy between you and you can still be energetically connected to that person.

By working on cord removal you help yourself to:

  • Facilitate the healing & forgiveness
  • Clear space within
  • Learn the lesson
  • Move on (maybe even doing so a little quicker)

That text from the ex when you remove the cords
One thing that I found is that every time I did a cord removal ritual, the soulmate would get in touch.

On a few occasions I took this as a “sign” that we were meant to reconnect. Leading me back down the rabbit hole. More on that later.

What I later learned is that once you do that cord removal work they will “feel” that disconnect in the energy.  Even if they are absolutely clueless about all things energy and mystical they’ll sense that you are moving on in some way.

If you find this happen don’t be the old me and take it as a green light to go back. Bring your awareness into the mix and recognise:

  • You are now in the midst of letting go
  • You have the choice to choose a healthier response and course of action. Ideally, one that aligns you with how you want to feel, who you want to become and what you want to experience

However, for those that are wanting to reconnect with your ex, be mindful that you can use this as an opportunity to do so. This time with more wisdom and better footing.

Learn the lesson
On that note and going back to my experience of going back into the rabbit hole, it’s important to learn the lesson or lessons that this relationship was there to teach you. This is especially true with karmic soulmates where there was likely to have been a wound that was the point of attraction that brought you together. For example, lack of self-worth, codepedency or not embodying your power.

When you see that root issue you can then start working on healing that wound which further facilitates your healing and personal growth. With the added potential of setting you up for healthier relationships in the future.
