Recently Blog-Buddy ZELDA was commenting on the importance of using techniques of Energy Spirituality just the way they are taught, subtracting nothing, adding nothing. Just using the skill set, as with cutting cords of attachment.
In her Comment 38 she wrote:
You get it, how important this work is, especially now. And you get how smart it is to just respect the diligence that went into the development of the techniques. That will serve you well!
In my cleaning today, I came across notebooks of notes on sessions of cords of attachment cut by Rose, and my notes on my own cords cut. Ive done somewhere around 260 now!
The first cord cut was in 2007. I destroyed all the notes from the cord sessions except those first few major, icky cords cut by Rose. They help me remember how far Ive come. They also help me have compassion for what I had been dealing with in my life up till that point 47 years! Yikes!
Then JEM asked her about this, what she had noticed as a result of cutting so many cords of attachment.
Today here comes ZELDA’s response, worthy of its own guest post. Headings, links, and minor edits are mine. Powerful energy healing can result from using the skill set known as 12 Steps to Cut Cords of Attachment(R).
I found it inspiring to read ZELDA’s account of self-healing and hope you do, too.
Cutting cords of attachment has been so practical and useful
About cutting cords, JEM
Its a wonderful skill to have, for sure. It has certainly helped me move out STUFF and is a good way to nip things in the bud.
I have a few different approaches for using the skill. For instance, after going through a big challenge, like dealing with difficult insurance company bureaucrats, Ill systematically check for and cut cords of attachment to those with whom I had charged interactions.
Ive found that doing this removes the charge. Of course, I only do one a week, to allow time for integration.
If I find a lingering or repeated feeling of annoyance related to one of my students, Ill check for and cut the cord of attachment.
I just did that last week and and noticed a big change as a result. This student no longer pops into my mind repeatedly after class.
The educational part of cutting cords, learning about the former cord dialog[Note: In 12 Steps to Cut Cords of Attachment, several of the steps involve finding out what used to be in that cord of attachment. Then figuring out logical consequences — results in life — related to those specific “cord items.” This method to remove cords of attachment is very different from many approaches that seem simpler. Yet they don’t bring permanent benefits, while this tested method does work to bring results permanently]
Lately, its been both surprising and helpful to note that most of the cord items related to a couple of students have been mine, from my side of the dialog box.
Theyve been related to my anger, frustration, and annoyance about behavior from some of those students.
Cutting these cords of attachment has removed that charge.
Results have helped me to shift to acceptance and tolerance.
People certainly have the right to do things sloppily! They are learning big lessons, as am I. (They’re just, maybe, learning different lessons from those I am learning.)
Indirect consequences of cutting cords of attachment[Another note from Rose: Newbies to cutting cords of attachment sometimes think they will change the cordee, or improve the relationship. Not so. Your cord of attachment to JOE or GLADYS is your problem, not JOE’s, not GLADYS’s. Similarly, their cords of attachment to you are none of your business. Still, as you evolve, the relationship dynamics between you and former cordees may improve just because you are different. And sometimes we have karma to pay back to somebody, and when that’s done, it’s done. Which is what ZELDA describes next.]
Its fascinating to see how relationship dynamics can sometimes change rather dramatically after a cord of attachment is cut.
Last year, I had a student who was sort of clumsily narcissistic, in that he constantly talked about himself and would try to pull all the attention in class to himself.
I cut the cord of attachment to him and then he just disappeared! Never came back to class, never heard from him again.
