This ritual – excerpted from Holistic Energy Magic: Charms and Techniques for Creating a Magical Life – is designed to help you cut energetic cords of attachment between you and another person.
This can be helpful when a person is not actually in your physical space but they seem to be lingering on in your mind or generally sending you less-than-desirable energy from afar. It can also be helpful when you aren’t presently in a position to physically remove yourself from the person or relationship, but would like to stop any and all relationship-related energy drains.
Here’s what to do:
Stand upright and visualize yourself growing roots that anchor you in the molten core of the earth. Then extend branches high into the sky. Connect with the infinite light of the cosmos, and let your branches hang back down like a weeping willow and caress the earth once again.
Mother Earth, I hereby banish and release all cords of attachment between me and ______.
Father Sky, I hereby banish and release all cords of attachment between me and ______.
All cords are severed, all cords are demolished, all cords are destroyed.
All cords are canceled, cleared, deleted, and erased in all directions of time, never to return.
All my energy now floods back to me, filling me with vitality and encircling me peacefully in a protective sphere of light.
As you surround yourself in a sphere of visualized white sage smoke, see any and all energetic cords of attachment being completely deleted and destroyed. Then see any formerly co-opted energy returning to you as bright white light. See this light swirl around you in a rapid clockwise spiral and then return to your energy field, giving you a boost of vitality and surrounding you in a sphere of white light.
