Often this is a romantic connection where you form a quite close bond with the other person. 

This can also apply to friendships where you are closely connected by shared interests.

Sometimes these attachments can relate to a past life affiliation where there are karmic links that have brought you together in this life.

Alternatively you may form a close relationship with someone else where it is not related to a past life situation. 

These Ties Exist On The Etheric Spiritual Level

These ties exist on the etheric spiritual level rather than in the physical world, and can be beneficial in many cases as they assist you to bond and this may be helpful if you have children.

These hooks can be advantageous and are often the reason why partners seem to know exactly what is happening to the other person before it occurs.

But when things go wrong in your relationship, these hooks or karmic ties are not always helpful.

These hooks or karmic ties can create situations where one partner wants to control the other person and uses the attached cords to do this.

When you are strongly attracted to someone else and form a deep romantic relationship and it's going well, you may create cords or hooks connecting you to each other.

Best Ways To Use Crystals To Sever Karmic Ties

How Do You Sever Cords or Karmic Ties Attaching You To Others?

If you want to cut cords that are connecting you energetically with someone else, start by attaining a state of relaxed inner awareness.

You do not want to go deeply into meditation, as you need to be aware and mindful of the process while doing this.

Hold one of the crystals to sever karmic ties in your hand, then close your eyes, as this allows you to more easily visualize the person or people from whom you wish to disconnect.

You can cut the cords connecting you to just one person at a time or you can sever the cords that are attached to a number of people at the same time.

Another way you can approach this is to simply call on Spirit, your guides or the angels to remove all ties that are attached to anyone else in this life or a past life.

Getting Started:

Getting started: Instead of simply sinking into deep inner awareness, you do need to keep your thoughts open to doing the steps needed to cut the hooks or cords.

  • Step 1: start by holding the stone you are using at the solar plexus chakra, as this is where most cords may be strongly attached, within the network of nerves located in the stomach.

Note: If you are not sure where this chakra is located, read more on the page about the solar plexus chakra.


    Step 2: imagine you can see the cord or cords attached there. You may like to see a very long cord or bunch of cords stretching out from you into the distance.

  • Step 3: visualize the cord or cords being gently removed. While you may find this works if you can still feel a cord connected to you, you may need to cut the cord.
  • Step 4: cord cutting methods include using a crystal with a sharp edge. You can visualize cutting the cord and then seeing it float away.

As it floats away, use you imagination to insert a barrier at the place where it came from, to prevent it being immediately re-attached. 

Once you are comfortable that it's done you can release the barrier or leave it in place for a few days, whatever feels comfortable to you.

Pulling The Cord Out Is Not Usually Recommended!

Pulling the cord out is not usually recommended as you need to be gentle to avoid harming yourself.  

If you feel you need help, you can call on the angelic beings. 

You can also ask your spirit guides to assist you to remove any ties, cords or hooks that you feel are still attached.

  • Step 5: if you feel that there are still ties attached, ask for cords that are attached at any other chakra to also be released. 
  • To ensure all of the other cords are removed, simply ask the angels or your spirit guides to create a block and ask them to sever any other ties you weren't aware of. 

Use your chosen stone at any or all chakras, one by one, asking spirit to cut etheric ties that have bound you to others, and free yourself from the restrictions that these unwanted ties can create.

Note: Ties may be connected at the higher chakras, especially if you have a strong Spiritual connection to someone else that may relate to a number of past lives.
