Emotional cords are connections which form with people you have an emotional give and take with, even animals. Anyone who creates a blip in your graph negative or positive the cord forms.
Though we all are universally connected these are more pronounced.esp with our mother. These can infact be viewed as silver threads running from the solar plexus of one to the other. And with mothers it exists even after one of them has left the body. More the traffic on them the thicker they get.
Though they form the basis of relationships and the emotional gratification that comes with being attached to another the bad news is that even negative stuff keeps getting exchanged. However that's a part of life..After all we are having a human experience here right. And emotions are a very powerful human experience.
Discomfort on continually 'receiving' bad vibes from somebody could be cause of karma having to be worked out which might have expectation as its root virus. Or forgiveness..or wider deeper understanding of who you are and what the other person is representing.
Just discomfort is not reason enough to cut cords .Infact cord cutting is ideally recommended for connections which are extremely negative like the cord between a rapist and victim. Or an ex partner who has found love and there’s still feelings being exchanged. Letting neither grow
Meditation: Visualize a walking bridge in your mind. Imagine yourself standing on the far end of this bridge. Now imagine the person you want to cut cords with is standing on the opposite end of the bridge. When you feel ready to energetically connect with the other person begin walking slowly to the middle of the bridge. Allow the other person to walk toward you, meeting you half way. Once you are in eye contact with one another you may begin communicating with an inner dialog. Tell the person what your feelings are. This is not a time to be angry or be holding onto grudges - you are releasing the ties. Tell the person that you are sorry for all of the things you said or did that hurt him/her. Tell him/her that you are forgiving him/her for all the hurtful things that were said or done in your relationship. Say your good-byes, wishing each other well in your separateness. Turn around and walk off the bridge.
