The Nature of the Energetic Cord

We are all energetic generators! The electrical frequencies that are absorbed, emitted, and processed by living beings- humans, animals, and plants- are just recently entering the scientific frontier for study, even though their existence has been acknowledged and used for healing and diagnosis around the world for over a millennium. As we speak, a new MRI machine that can trace deep brain light is being developed! The human body is made up of not only bone, tissue, and water, but also of electrical currents, energy centers, energy fields (auras), and cords of energy. Today, our focus is on the phenomena of the energetic cord, with its ability to both store and transport our energies, mimicking the functions of the circulatory system and dictating the health of our relationships with the outside world.

Energetic cords are concentrated pathways of the electricity generated by and running throughout our bodies. These cords run along our Meridian lines (TCM), express outward from our chakra centers, and run along both our horizontal axis at the heart center and the vertical axis following our spine (the Hara Line). At work inside the body, these energetic highways disperse our energy to specific organs, tissues, and areas of our physique to regulate our health. At work outside of the body, these cords give and receive energy to and from situations and other people. If the energy bond is strong and consistent enough, a cord will form in order to regulate a balanced energy exchange between the two individuals. These cords can originate from all of our energy centers in one form or another. However, the cords created at the Root, Sacral, and Heart Chakra centers are big influencers in our daily lives and how we interact with others and our environment. These particular centers, along with the Crown, dictate our physical, emotional, and mental responses to our daily experiences more than any other energy center we have. These areas of the body process more energy, producing more of it in turn.


When energetic cords exist between two people, they most typically originate from the heart, sacrum, or root centers, depending on the relationship type. Parent-child and intimate relationships grow at the roots and sacral centers, while sibling relationships and relationships between best friends grow a cord at the heart. The job of this cord is to keep a balanced field of power between its two entities by exchanging energy at the most optimal frequency using what energy is available between the two.

If both parties are able to source (generate) their own energy to stay emotionally fulfilled, keep good relationship boundaries, and vibrate at a high frequency, both parties will continuously generate more than enough energy to promote good physical and mental health. This balanced and high vibrational connection is the ideal type of relationship we inherently strive for in all of our connections, and it generates energy at an exponential rate, influencing a greater outside environment with a greater potential for healing and happiness. This is why it is so important for us to vibrate at a high frequency and to know how to consciously do so. The magic of this electrical exchange is that it helps us to generate energy for ourselves and, when operating under healthy conditions, can generate more than we need in order to share it with those in need.

The more energy we have, the more we have to share, and the more we share, the more we generate!

Energy cords make it possible for us to more easily feel the emotions and moods of someone with whom we are very close, even if we are not physically around them. They make it possible for us to share the healing burden, to hold our loved ones when they are in need, and to accept the help of others when we are in need. Energetic cords can be very useful when shared between two people who sustain a nurturing relationship. It is, for instance, beneficial for this cord to exist between a mother and child because it provides a balancing effect, helping to teach the child what emotional regulation feels like, when to be afraid, and how to emotionally perceive the world around them, assuming the mother is in good mental and emotional health themselves.


How we use our Cords

Our perception of the world expresses itself when we have feelings about something we experience and when those feelings cause a physical reaction, such as goosebumps, giddiness, or a pit in our stomach. This is the type of learning we glean from our parents at a very young age through our observations and through the energetic cords that bind us. This exchange of information dictates how we feel about everything we encounter and how we manage those feelings. This is important because those feelings, in turn, impact our bodies and health by releasing specific hormones in our brains, the physical consequence of each of our thoughts. Due to this energetic relationship, our offspring feel what we feel much of the time, learning what is ‘normal’ for us, adapting to that ‘normal,’ and making it their own. If we are joyful most of the time, our offspring will inherit that high vibrational emotional resonance and be in good health. If we are stressed much of the time, they will learn what the feeling of stress is, that it is ‘normal’ to feel that way, and dwell in a lower vibrational state of health, just as you do.

This type of cord connection and learning can occur in other relationships when individuals are with each other for prolonged periods of time, such as in marriages, long-standing work relationships, and sibling relationships. Emotional ties and intimate relationships can build cords and keep them strong if emotions and intimacy continue to flow between the two individuals. These cords are useful by providing healing for the relationship but only work well and on a long-term basis if both individuals are sufficient in sourcing their own energies and are able to keep an energetic balance. If both parties are sourcing their energy from within themselves, the combined frequency of the couple will grow, providing continual growth and happiness for both parties. Couples that share this production are power couples, accomplishing goals and demonstrating flexibility and understanding. Couples, be they intimate or not, who demonstrate an overdependency of each other or an imbalance of dependency between the two of them will experience turmoil in the relationship until a balance is found or until the cord is removed in order to teach each individual to independently meet their own energetic needs.


Sometimes we need to unplug.


When we are unable to source our own emotional energy from within at the rate we need, we begin to impose emotional attachments on others that are unbalanced and unhealthy in order to get the energy we cannot give ourselves. This lowers the frequency of the overall shared energy in the relationship. When energy is exchanged at such a low vibration, it can make us uncomfortable and cause discord in the relationship in the form of spats, fights, or even breakups. Further, when we are running the energy from unhealthy attachments through our bodies, we fail to see the impact this mitigation process has on us because we are honed in on how the energy exchange (aka the relationship) is making us feel. This leads to poor overall health.

If one person is using up more energy than the other in the relationship, an imbalance occurs. Consider this scenario and remember that the energetic cord’s ultimate goal is to keep a balance of energy; If a person with whom you share a cord vibrates at a lower frequency than you, the cord will begin an exchange of energy to achieve a balanced frequency between its two sources. Some of your energy will be transferred to the other person in order to raise their frequency and create an equilibrium of life force between the two of you. If you are not able to source your own energy from within, this natural process can create a draining effect on both you and the energetic relationships in which you operate. If we are unable to recognize when we are pulling energy from others in order to meet our own emotional needs, we are missing the opportunity to learn how to be emotionally independent and sovereign.

When we decide to source our own energies for emotional fulfillment, and when we decide to clear or detach our energetic cords from others (as needed and necessary), we begin to clear ourselves of false beliefs, relationships that no longer serve us, and ineffective perceptions that die away as the cords are cleansed or released. Unplugging doesn’t have to mean that we are throwing each other away or removing ourselves from the relationship. It is merely the process of reclaiming our energy for ourselves so that we can operate at our highest potential every moment of every day. Once we have detached our cords from those we do not need to give our energies any longer, we begin to more fully source our life force energy from within, which in turn requires the other person to do the same. Additionally, by doing our energetic work and keeping our emotional, mental, and spiritual vessels clear, we can produce enough of our own energy, and when we use it at a logical and reasonable rate, we are then able to keep our physical bodies clean, clear, and healthy.


An energetic cord is just that, a cord of electricity with a single purpose, to mitigate its electrical charge for the most optimal balance possible. If you find yourself drained of energy after leaving certain people or situations and are ready to reclaim your full energy source for your own fulfillment and growth, you have plenty of options. Cord clearings, ceremonies and rituals, energy healing, Soul work, and energy charts can help you release what you no longer need and take back what is you and yours!
