Forgiveness Vs. Cord-Cutting. Could be, sometimes you’ll never be able to forgive until you cut a particular cord of attachment. To the one who wronged you!
Forgiveness Vs. Cord-Cutting. Controversial. Shareable.
I’ll warn you, Blog-Buddies. This will be one of my more controversial posts. If you don’t hate it, you may love it. In which case, please share it with friends who might find it helpful, too.
What prompted this article?
“How to Help Others Forgive?” is the topic of a recent advice column by Amy Dickinson. She’s at the top of her field, at the top of her game. So I couldn’t wait to read how the author of “Ask Amy” would answer a reader’s question from stepfather Tom about his stepdaughter. (Whom I’ll call “Gladys.”)
Gladys already sees a psychotherapist. Yet she is unable to forgive her birth father, and Stepdad Tom wanted to help. Would Amy recommend a book on forgiveness?
Wise Forgiveness Advice. Yet Outdated
Amy Dickinson began her response, “There are many, many books about forgiveness, and every one I have ever read says: Forgiveness is a choice. Forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself. Forgiveness equates with freedom from the shackles of anger and resentment.”
Then she goes on to recommend “Dare to Forgive: The Power of Letting Go and Moving On,” by Edward M. Hallowell.
A thousand years ago, even a hundred years ago, this advice would have been fine. Okay, it would also count as anachronistic advice, since 1,000 years ago you couldn’t recommend Hallowell’s book (published in 2006).
To be clear, I think Amy Dickinson gives topnotch advice for mainstream American thinking today. I just wish she knew about…
Better advice for The Age of Awakening
In 2007, a very different book on forgiveness was published. It was called:
Forget wasting time over extra forgiveness attempts. Do some initial forgiveness… if you like… if you can. But then stop wasting time on diminishing returns.
Instead cut your cord of attachment to the person who is bending you out of shape. Because on the level of your aura and subconscious mind, that cord of attachment really is bending you out of shape.
Heal the STUFF and forgiveness won’t be an issue any longer.
Ok, that would have been a pretty long title. The actual how-to book, by Rose Rosetree of all people, is called, “Cut Cords of Attachment: Heal Yourself and Others with Energy Spirituality.”
Forgiveness Vs. Cord-Cutting
So many forgiveness practices, so little time!
- Forgiveness exercises
- Forgiveness prayers
- Psychotherapy to gradually awaken forgiveness
- Pastoral counseling offered by a saintly spiritual advisor who has personally overcome all worldly resentments.
What kind of person rails agains that? Well, me. Hey, at least I stop short of dissing motherhood and apple pie. There are limits. 😉
Forgiveness conversations are about serious pain. I’m not joking about that. Of course, forgiveness — total forgiveness — would be lovely for each of us, with every relationship. But let’s look at the facts with our third millennium skills of energetic literacy. Because people who lack energetic literacy can’t see beyond surface-level solutions like forgiveness practices.
Energetic Perspective on Forgiveness
Of course reading the human energy field in depth and detail is the emerging literacy for this new millennium. Just as the second millennium saw the rise of near-universal Gutenberg-style literacy, this new time is seeing a rapid rise in people who learn how to read auras in such detail they can go all the way to the level of chakra databanks… as in our Aura Reading Film Review of Michelle Williams playing Marilyn Monroe.
Reading auras in this third millennium doesn’t have to mean psychic development. No, it can be learned as a form of literacy, pure and simple. Just as Gutenberg-style literacy could be learned for the last bunch o’ centuries without your having to apprentice at a monastery.
Why Forgiveness Vs. Cord-Cutting?
And Why Might Cutting a Cord of Attachment Bring You Much Better Results?
Let’s give this discussion a human context, the Gladys context. In our anecdote about the loving but frustrated Stepfather Joe, the cord of attachment in question began when Gladys first became interested in her biological father — let’s call him “Joe.” Two energy structures developed, starting from Gladys, connecting the two of them.
- The spiritual tie stores a complete record of every sweet thing between Gladys and Joe. Beautiful!
- The cord of attachment contains one incident that especially has pushed Gladys’ buttons. Ick!
Using surface perception only, there is no way to know about either energetic structure. However that doesn’t keep them from impacting how Gladys thinks, feels, remembers, forgets. No amount of forgiveness practice will touch a cord of attachment. So let’s consider further.
Forgiveness Vs. Cord-Cutting. Hello! Cords Can Prevent Forgiveness.
Contents in Gladys’ cord of attachment can change over time but will only move in the direction of bad to worse.
And what do you find if, like me, you have spent over 10,000 hours in the field of Energetic Literacy, healing, and teaching about deeper perception?
Whatever happens to get stuck in a cord of attachment will recycle 24/7 in your subconscious mind. There is, literally, a sequence of “cord items,” part of a “cord dialogue” that moves through your aura. When you think about the cordee (the person at the other end of your cord of attachment), the whole sequence will run through you extra times.
Therefore, ironically enough, every minute that Gladys has spent with her therapist, trying to work through issues about her father Joe, guess what? She has triggered extra subconscious run-throughs of all the old distress.
Whatever has been stuck in her cord of attachment to Joe would have gone through her once that day anyhow. Now, thanks to all that forgiveness work, it has gone through her over and over and over again.
Forgiveness Vs. Cord-Cutting. To Be Blunt.
Resolving issues emotionally for forgiveness… does not remove a cord of attachment.
Praying and receiving answers to prayers for forgiveness… will not remove a cord of attachment.
Once it begins, a cord of attachment lasts until the final minutes of your life. Even if you never think about the cordee again. Or see the cordee. The cordee could even be dead. You’ll still suffer subconsciously and aurically in exactly the same way… unless you cut the cord of attachment in a quality way.
Cord-cutting, done effectively, means that you will never again have that cord of attachment. You can, of course, learn more about this from several of the most popular posts at this blog — not a bad way to start.
Many of you Blog-Buddies have also had telephone sessions with me where I have facilitated aura healing with this method. Glad to say, some of you Blog-Buddies these days are even in my Energy Spirituality Mentoring Program, because we are moving as quickly as we can to train professionals in this emerging field.
Please note, I do not mean to imply that cutting cords of attachment is the only way to remove STUFF in the way of forgiveness. Instead I am making the point that moving out STUFF works far better than staying on the surface of life and dealing with all of the subconscious and astral programming.
I happen to discuss cord cutting because it is one of many skills of RES Energy Healing that works! Including for clients who have struggled to forgive.
Before our session, they couldn’t. Now they can. That’s what can happen with Cord-Cutting, Vs. Outdated Age of Faith practices. Like so-well-meaning forgiveness!
