How to sever a soul tie/energetic link with someone

Recommended Posts

I have recently distanced myself from an intimate relationship that I needed to distance myself from. What are the best methods to go about completely cleansing myself of this person's energetic bond with me?

 

I'm aware that the cessation of thoughts towards them is of benefit, though I know of little beyond that. I would really appreciate any and all input concerning how to begin excising this person's energy and influence from my personal sphere. Please and thank you

Let it happen naturally.  Try to accept it, rather than run from the connection. 

 

We all go thru crappy breakups and it would be wonderful to just forget about the people. But there’s important lessons to learn, and stuff to heal that comes with it. There’s no easy fix, unfortunately. 

 

Most energetic links are kept alive through our own thoughts/habits/inner stuff... so short of learning and healing through it, anything else would be a temporary fix.

I see and hear what you are saying. Though surely there is some rite I can perform that will disconnect me from this person's sphere of influence entirely.

 

You seem to be a sentimental person, as am I for the most part. However, I want to no longer have this person be a part of my reality.

I understand. 

 

Maybe a symbolic cord cutting can help.

I've done this once, a number of years back.  It was more out of curiosity to what it would feel like.  I did it with an old "friend" who was very toxic for me.  Two days after I "cut the cord", he came into my work to "see how I was doing."  I hadn't seen him in a couple years. Coincidence?

 

Good luck!

In my experience it takes about half the time that the relationship was maintained, for the connection to dissolve naturally...  for the waters to clear so to speak.

 

Although this varies depending on the depth of the connection and the process and approach of the one walking away, versus the one being walked away from (sometimes this is maintained indefinitely)...  each dynamic can have drastically different results for each involved. 

 

Residual echoes of the other person's influence will persist long after this... memory triggers arise, though with time, the impact of the recall does seem 'lose its teeth' and the memories no longer carry the sting and substantiality and ability to influence the current moment they when they arise later in the process.

 

I find it good to reassess when memory triggers arise, where I was, where I am and reassert my intentions and then when my bearings are set again clearly, let go again.

What do you get out of being connected to this person ?  It's not really about them, it is about you and your needs.
For instance if you wish to please people, perhaps because you have a habit of doing this because of a fear of aloneness, or because you do not have the skill of loving yourself, or due to pain that is waiting to be resolved, then you will be maintaining this connection.

Try the cord cutting ceremony, if it doesn't work then something deeper is there.

If you and this person were lovers, then there is an energetic link made that exist no matter the distance nor what you think or wish.  I've read in several places that this link lasts for seven years, and the only way to cut it is to find a real shaman who can see the link and break it for you.  I had a volunteer here who went through that recently and she said that after that she felt more energetic.

One method I've heard of being used is to use your intention to write down about your emotional attachments, issues, all strong emotions associated with said relationship on a piece of paper. Then, burn the paper, and as the paper burns down, let go of the attachments. If it doesn't fully work at the first instance, do it again.

I am sorry, but no on such rites.  Most of such connections are subconscious and things like cord cutting are not really cutting a connection, but more like trying to build a mental wall around it.  Such things usually become very unstable and breakdown.

 

It is always hard, but the most powerful technique is simply forgiving yourself and the other person.  Give it time and let it go.

Do you have a spiritual practice? I think it’s important to approach this with a method you find supportive, something that inspires confidence in you.

 

My approach is to not attempt to break the connection but to feel it, embrace it, be with it fully. I then bring this energetic identity, the one who is attached, the one who feels the connection, into a supportive meditative space (we refer to it as inner refuge). The openness, clarity, and warmth that are naturally there in the refuge allow the identity to lose its hold and, slowly over time, dissolve and ultimately liberate.

 

This is an approach that requires some fundamental familiarity with a supportive meditative space that can fully envelope and withstand whatever challenges I bring with me. Not something anyone can just sit down and do from scratch. Feel free to PM of you want more detail.

This is the best advice.

There are many ways to do what you are asking - the burning paper idea does work on some levels. You can also simply postulate that the agreements that brought you together and that have found you in separation are finished - as in the contracts you had between yourselves is now finished - you can write this down on the paper and burn it.

 

If this is done in resistance it will be far less effective than if it is done in simple no effort.

 

You can repeat the process for 7 days.

 

In so doing you are releasing the both of you energetically.

 

If there is something to forgive - greet forgiveness without willfulness and a kick in the behind. Drop it - simply drop it.

 

If you are one to visualize things - close your eyes and imagine you sitting across from the person.  First simply sit with this image and notice any resistance in your physical and energetic bodies that come to pass from sitting across from this person and breath into it and feel the tension dissolve or fall away. Do this until you feel you are not IN resistance.

 

Now imagine that a table appears between the two of you and it has a bowl of fire gently burning. Imagine that any agreements you still have with the person are floating over and dropping into the bowl - and notice that as those agreements go into the burning bowl some energy floats out in vibrant neutrality and some of it goes back to you and some of it goes back to the person across from you. This is the life force that you both had in those agreements. You are both getting it back in Present Time.

 

Address yourself within and know you are spotless - you have not been tarnished in any way. The person that is across from you is as you - spotless and untarnished. Rigidized patterns and held momentums brought you together and are released - releasing will ease over time. Give devotion to higher states - move on - forgive.

 

Be in the center of your bodies - take no side
