Why NOT Ask for a “Cord Cutting Session”?

Cutting cords of attachment is an emerging skill in this third millennium. These days, it is often referred to as “Cord-cutting.” Many clients think they are being smart consumers when they ask for a “Cord-cutting session” — a personal consultation where, as the healing centerpiece, a cord of attachment is cut.

If you’ve been thinking this way, you’re right that Energy Spirituality sessions can help you a lot. By now you can have them either with me or with someone who has received professional-level training with me in the field now called “Rosetree Energy Spirituality.”

Personally, I do not refer to my sessions as “Cord-cutting sessions” or “Removing energetic cords.” This distinction can be a very big deal to you as a New Age Consumer, as well as helping you as my client for personal sessions.

Let’s explore why.

What to expect in your first session of Aura Healing

Relax, for starters.

Although this is your first experience of the mind-body-spirit healing known as “Rosetree Energy Spirituality,” I have been cutting cords of attachment professionally since 1986. These days, in a typical year I facilitate more than 1,000 session hours.

Most of these personal sessions are for aura healing, rather than aura research or mentoring. Yes, I often choose cutting a cord of attachment as the healing centerpiece of a session for aura healing. Probably I have done more quality work of this kind than anyone alive. Because of all this experience, I know better than to promise anybody a “Cord-cutting session.” (More on that later in today’s post.)

In your first session with me, bring an intention. This means one way you would like your life to improve, such as:

  • Living more fully in the here and now.
  • Preparing for an appropriate, fulfilling, committed, mutual love relationship.
  • Handling anger more effectively.

Not sure what your intention is? We can figure it out together, right at the start. Use my experience to help tweak your intention to make it as productive as possible.

Early in your session, if you are interested in cutting a particular cord of attachment, let me know that too. I call that your candidate for cutting a cord of attachment. Naming this is not the same thing as setting an intention.

  • I promise to help fulfill your intention in the most powerful way possible. The whole purpose of your session will be to help you grow as a person, heal emotional and/or spiritually.
  • I cannot promise there will be cord-cutting. Why? That won’t necessarily be appropriate for you in a session of aura healing.
  • However, here is something else I can promise. Communicating with you, I’ll be honest and clear, right from the start, about what will happen in your session. Your permission is always asked in advance before any technique is employed.

Whatever helps you the most, I’m fully committed to being of service. In fact, you’ll probably hear me start talking really quickly, once we agree on the wording for your intention. That’s because I want to pack your session with the maximum help, healing, and information for you. (Although if you want me to slow down, just ask! Can do.)

What will your session include after setting an intention?

You get to choose the Divine Being who helps us. (Usually this is “God,” but if you’re more comfortable with a different choice, we’ll make that work. For instance, I have co-created sessions with my client plus Jesus, Kwan Yin, Merlin, The Intelligence that Rules the Universe, Highest Power.)

Then, with permission, I will do a Skilled Empath Merge with you.

Experiencing you from inside your aura, I can learn a great deal about you. I can learn it fast. Actually, that is how I figure out which skill set will help you best.

As a first-time client, you might have other causes of the problem you want to fix. There may well be different techniques of aura healing that would actually help you more than cutting a cord of attachment.

What if you are expecting a cord cutting session? What if you are focused, with great fervor, on removing energetic cords?

To protect you, and make sure you get as much help from the session as possible, I will evaluate if it is appropriate to do this kind of aura surgery during your session. Because I care as much as you do about helping you as much as possible during your session.

There can be aura-level problems that you have never heard of… problems that are much more significant causes of distress than any cord of attachment. Problems that I have the skill set to heal, right during your very first session.

The short list includes psychic coercion, astral entities, E.T. entities, and other significant misalignments. I will only tell you about a problem like this if I also can facilitate major healing during your session.

Unlike a beginner at aura healing, I know too much about how to facilitate healing to promise a cord-cutting session.

As a client, you don’t have to be an expert at Rosetree Energy Spirituality to benefit. Surely the healer’s expertise is what you are paying for.

When we are in session together, your healing centerpiece for that session will be chosen with all due respect for you, where you are right now in your personal development, and what will bring the best, safest results for you.

So please do not think in terms of a “Cord Cutting Session.” Choose a Session of Aura Healing with Rosetree Energy Spirituality.

Divine Homeostasis, Part of What Keeps Everything Safe

Due to Divine Homeostasis, only you will be affected by the session. Divine Homeostasis means that energetically any cordee, or other person related to you, will not be changed energetically because you are requesting healing for yourself. God works out Divine Homeostasis automatically during the session.

Divine Homeostasis happens during Step 6 of the 12 Steps to Cut Cords of Attachment. Similar aspects occur with other skill sets used for Energy Spirituality. It is very important that your session helps to heal you. We never presume to change anyone who is not my client.

What will definitely happen during your aura healing session

Step 1. Set an intention. Optional: You can also name a candidate for cutting a cord of attachment, but that is NOT an intention. And just because you name a candidate does not guarantee that this will be selected as the Healing Centerpiece for your session.

Step 2.  Setting up the co-creation with the Divine. Coaching you about how to get the most from your session. (Hint: Relax! These sessions tend to be fun as well as healing.)

Step 3. A brief Skilled Empath Merge helps me to diagnose, on the level of auras, how to help you best.

Step 4. I will systematically use one skill set at a time to bring you healing.

Usually there is a before-and-after picture. Other components of the session are used as appropriate for your unique situation.

You can expect both immediate benefits and long-term benefits from your session. In most cases, I will be able to summarize these quite specifically (and, I’m told, accurately).

There is good reason why most of my clients have multiple sessions. Some come back every year or five. Others commit to a standing weekly appointment (for a while, not forever). Whether we have one session or one hundred sessions, I will serve you the very best I can.

Benefit from my experience with cord cutting

When I published Cut Cords of Attachment, in 2007, it was the first book in English on this topic. I googled and found three pages of hits. At the start of 2010, less than two years ago, the number of hits was up to 3 million. That is when I wrote the first version of today’s post.

A lot has happened since then. Just today, updating this popular post, I googled “Cut the cord of attachment.” How many hits? 14,600,000

This type of aura healing is really exciting. As someone who has worked in this field professionally since 1986, I am thrilled to have this energy technology move from the fringes of mind-body-spirit into the mainstream.

Confusion, as much as enthusiasm, is present in much of today’s conversation about cords of attachment, energetic cords, etheric cords, astral cords, energy ties, psychic ties, etc. Even confusion about Divine Homeostasis.

I would love to help you make sense of it all. Because I don’t know everything yet about this topic.  I’m still learning, one session at a time. But I have successfully cut cords of attachment for clients on every continent without polar ice caps.

New Age Consumer, beware

What do you need to know as a New Age Consumer, if you are considering this type of session with a healer? Beware the healer who promises you a “Cord Cutting Session.” Why?

Cutting a cord of attachment is major surgery to your aura. An experienced, ethical practitioner of Energy Spirituality will not promise to do this for you, not as a first-time client, not ever. It is not as though you are buying a new pair of shoes.

You can easily find practitioners online who promise “Cord-cutting sessions.” Some of them outline, in considerable detail, the 12 Steps to Cut Cords of Attachment(R), taken right from one of my books, Cut Cords of Attachment with Energy Spirituality or Cut Cords of Attachment with for Self-Healing (The Quick and Easy Edition).

To me, this seems very much like advertising shoes for sale. Only oops!

Facilitating major surgery to someone’s aura is actually different from buying shoes. No professional at Rosetree Energy Spirituality will advertise “Cord-cutting sessions.” We know too much about different kinds of STUFF. We have learned how to assess what would help a particular client most, in terms of techniques being used.

Personally, I care very much about educating and empowering consumers of energy healing.

  • You don’t have to look far at this blog to tell that this is not the usual quick weblog, with each blog post consisting of a screen or two. And maybe the host will offer a few new posts every month. Out of respect for readers like you, I give you depth articles on a regular basis.
  • Another reason I spend so much time on this blog is to educate all you Blog-Buddies. Rosetree Energy Spirituality is an emerging field. There is exponential growth but also huge misunderstanding — hence the need to distinguish a quality session with a professionally trained practitioner versus presenting “Cord-cutting sessions” as if selling shoes.
  • Your questions of all kinds are welcome here at this post and elsewhere at “Deeper Perception Made Practical.” I answer all relevant questions of general interest.
  • If you make an appointment for a session with me, you can contact a real-live human being to discuss your appointment. Mitch Weber works full time to do a quality job of scheduling appointments, etc. It isn’t just a matter of clicking onto the shopping cart at The Official Rose Rosetree Website.
  • Long before your session begins, you can call Mitch with your questions and concerns: 703-450-9514.
  • Or you can send Mitch an email and he will respond to your questions and concerns: mitch**at***rose-rosetree.com.

Why I decided to write this post

Most of the articles at this blog have a light-hearted tone. This has been a serious article because quality control is serious. It impacts you and the results that you get. That includes the reputation of this emerging field of energy spirituality in general and cutting cords of attachment in particular.

I have worked since 1970 in the wild and wooly world of New Age. Mostly I love it. But the lack of standards is a real problem. Energy healers are not licensed like doctors. Consumer skills can be lacking. I will not share with you all the stories I have heard from clients about ineffective work passed off as “Cord cutting sessions” but maybe you can imagine.

Sadly you can find plenty of practitioners who advertise cord-cutting sessions and describe them at length. You’ll read terms like energy cords, psychic cords, etheric cords, energetic cords, energy ties, Divine Homeostasis. These healers could be really talented. But they are not necessarily skilled in this healing modality.

Some who advertise their services will actually take portions of my how-to books and post this on their blogs or websites; one psychic “kindly” offers to download a chapter of my book from her blog.

Copyright law protects readers as well as writers. Honoring this is also the ethical thing to do.

At my website, you will find at least one chapter of every one of my books. Plus FAQs galore. P)lus loads of supplementary articles about cord cutting as well. For details about personal sessions, in person or by phone, use this cord-cutting link.

Yes, I offer a Mentoring Program in Rosetree Energy Spirituality, where I thoughtfully train professionals at this kind of healing. Their training and apprentice sessions prepare them to do a quality job at cutting cords of attachment. This is a professional program that is attracting really talented, dedicated healers.

As a consumer, know the difference between a graduate of that Mentoring Program versus someone with little or no professional training in this powerful specialty.

If someone claims to have studied with me, take a second look. What, a misleading claim on the Internet? Having read my how-to book or taken a weekend workshop does not really count as “Studying with Rose Rosetree” or being authorized by me in any way.

One more practical point, psychic development is an honorable and very traditional path. However, Rosetree Energy Spirituality is not a form of psychic development. When I teach aura reading, it is not done as psychic development but as a form of energetic literacy.

From my perspective, one of the smartest things you can consider as a New Age consumer is this: A reading is not a healing.

Therefore, if you are reading the website of a professional psychic, you can be absolutely positive that this person is not someone I have authorized or trained as a practitioner for cutting cords of attachment. You might also question: When a practitioner does not make a clear distinction between giving a reading and giving a healing, what else may be fuzzy?

Below, ask your questions about cutting cords of attachment. Let’s shed more light on this powerful healing modality!

    If you’re not sure about the wording of the intention, fear not. Because we will talk. We will communicate.

    A session will unfold, depending upon what I find going on in your aura during the Skilled Empath Merge or aura reading that is done AFTER our agreeing on your intention for the session.

  • 502

    Could be, the appropriate Healing Centerpiece for your session would be having me facilitate cutting the cord of attachment between you and your husband.

    Or it could be something different.

    How do I choose?

    Not by taking requests. (I’d apologize but, really, it would not be in your interest to take requests for a Healing Centerpiece.)

    I choose based on the type(s) of STUFF that are the biggest deal in your aura at the time, particularly as relevant to your intention.

  • 503

    To give you an idea about the different types of STUFF identified in this energy spirituality, check out this blog post:


  • 504

    It’s tricky for newbies sometimes, I know. If you read my website, different skill sets are listed.

    This is not meant to read like a menu in a restaurant, where you order up your fave.

    I’m in that tricky pioneer’s position of having to educate clients about what on earth is done in the field of Rosetree Energy Spirituality.

  • 505

    Be grateful, I’d say, that you don’t have to become a specialist in this field in order to benefit from a simple 55-minute session.

    Just bring yourself. (Don’t even need to tote along your husband 😉 )

    Bring an intention.

    And let me know, also if, in general, you are interested in a session of:

    * Aura Healing and Transformation
    * Aura Research
    * Personal Mentoring

    Then leave it to me and the process of co-creating with skills. And look for results related to that intention for your session.

  • 506

    Historical note: When I began to offer sessions in 1986, it was long before the planet shifted vibrationally into the Age of Aquarius.

    It has always been valuable for my clients to look for results in human ways — rather than “Having a certain technique done.”
    or “Energy ideas, like ‘Fix my Root Chakra'”

    Now, since The Shift into The Age of Aquarius, it is more important than ever to have just about everything in your life be about human vibrational frequencies, not astral or energetic experiences.

    So unless you’re facilitating a session, or doing self-healing, relax and enjoy being the very human client… moving forward on your sacred and unique path of personal development.

    Enajite says:

    I need to cut the cord of attachment from multiple people in my life, including someone who may or may not be my future partner. I am an empath and am in a crisis of feeling too much vibrational energy. What is the price of the sessions?

  • 508

    Thank you for asking, ENAJITE. Please read carefully the part of my website about sessions:


    As in receiving professional services from someone in any field where you have not formally trained, it would help you to bring an intention. Just one intention. Not a list of a many problems that you expect to be solved all at once.

    It sounds from your question here that you might have made up your mind about what I would do to help you, one session at a time.

    Well, with all respect, don’t be so sure which techniques of Energy Spirituality are really the most important for helping you at this time. Until I’m in session with you and have gone through setting an intention, then doing a Skilled Empath Merge, I don’t know yet. Why would you?

    Just bring your intention and allow me to help you the best I can. 🙂

  • 509

    Also important: I do not do sessions for new clients who are in a crisis.

    Nor do the professionals I train in Rosetree Energy Spirituality.

    Find a way to get through the crisis before you contact me for an appointment, because I do not have the skills (or training or credentials) of a mental health professional,

  • 510
    Enajite says:

    The crisis is not mental the crisis is trying to process vibrational energy. Sorry, that I did not use the appropriate wording. I think this service would be helpful, which is why I am trying to seek it out. I will be in touch for aura transformation and regression therapy sessions.

    Shelly says:

    I have a question about cord cutting. I have had one heck of a bad love relationship that went on for a few years before my husband.

    It was a very very bad relationship. He was an alcoholic and very verbally abusive to me.

  • 514
    Shelly says:

    He is no longer in my life, but I would LOVE to have a cord cutting session for that past relationship.

    However I’ve been told not to ask for a cord cutting session.

    So how do I appropriately go about asking to have that done? Thank you for your help please.

  • 515

    You’re welcome, SHELLY. Golly, you inspired quite a thorough response.

    Heidi says:

    I am now dealing with depression from a 17 year abusive relationship with a narcissist ex boyfriend. I am starting therapy and are not on anti-depressants, but wanted to know if cutting the cords to this individual would help me in getting over the pain and damage he has caused.

    Thank you,

  • 517

    HEIDI, thank you for asking. This is your first comment here at the blog, right?

    Since you are starting to work with a psychotherapist, it would be important for you to ask your therapist whether it would be appropriate to have a session with me (or another expert I have trained in this field).

    Usually the therapist is comfortable with this. Still, it’s better not to assume, because you and your therapist will have an important relationship.

    Incidentally, a person can be on psychoactive medication and still be my client. Just so long as it is understood that I am not a mental health professional. And we do ask new clients to inform us if this type of medication is being prescribed.

  • 518

    Do I think that a session of Rosetree Energy Spirituality could help you? Probably.

    Occasionally when I work with a new client, when I do the Skilled Empath Merge and talk to the client early on in the session, I can tell that the client has problems that require the services of a mental health professional.

    In that case, I let the client know, end the session and give a refund.

    This seldom happens.

  • 519

    So I do encourage you to set up a session (phoners are just as effective as sessions in person).

    Do be clear, though, that when I choose a Healing Centerpiece to help you, it may not necessarily be cutting the cord of attachment to your ex-boyfriend. There might be a stronger priority, which is why it’s smart to go to someone thoroughly trained in this field, rather than someone who offers “Cord cutting sessions.”

    You can learn a little more about how to get the best results from a session from this recent post:

    Today’s blog post comes from a session where my client never would have thought about cutting a cord of attachment to this particular person, a lawyer who was consulted only briefly.
    But this Healing Centerpiece for the session flowed naturally from the client’s intention. Read about the surprising cord items here.

    And then, if you would, think about the logical consequences that client could expect.

    Especially see Comments 15-18 at that post, Blog-Buddies.

    You’re so sophisticated, gaining a depth knowledge of what energy spirituality can be. Few people know yet that there’s more to it than cutting cords of attachment.

    If you’ve been reading the main article here and the many comments, this reflects well on your interest in learning about what is true, not simply some easy cliches circulated on the Internet.

    On behalf of all energy spirituality experts who are bringing this new field into the world, THANK YOU.
