Alternative Medicine: What are Etheric Cords?

By Marcela Arrieta

Etheric what! That’s one of many words used to describe the connections linking a person to the other. 

To a person who can see energy, these cords look similar to a water hose. Interlacing two people. Inside the water-hose-like  structure, energies of love, compassion, etc., flow between people. But it’s not all lovey-dovey. On our not-so-great days, the predominant energies consist of the icky-like textures of anger, bitterness, etc.

The question we should be asking is: why are these etheric cords so important and why do they exist? The best way to describe a positive-filled cord is that of the bond between a mother and child. It’s said women tend to have a heightened sixth sense. 

Somehow we intuitively pick up on the needs and wants of a baby who can’t speak. Part of this “knowing” emanates from the etheric cord bonding mother and child. It’s flooded with incalculable love and compassion. Making mom ultra sensitive to the higher energy frequencies shared through the cord. 

The opposite is true. When a cord by majority is filled with negative energy it becomes toxic and we feel it through the emotions of anger, resentment, inability to forgive, etc. 

This energy if left untreated has the possibility of being harmful. What is conveyed through this cord is one of the reason why we find ourselves continuously thinking and judging that person who did us wrong. In reality we are contributing to this energy. What happens when you add fuel to fire? The fire will continue to burn. 

I’ll share two simple yet effective techniques. 

To pump additional positive and loving energy into an already loving etheric cord simply imagine a water-hose like structure bonding you and the other person. Picture in your minds eye filling this cord with tremendous amounts of light-pink light. Hold this thought up-to 3 minutes. Repeat as often with anyone!

How do you transform a negative spewing cord into one of joy and love? Simple! Follow the same instructions given in the above exercise. With the following added step: practice forgiveness towards the person who hurt you, it may even be towards oneself.
