Chakra cord healing work is a new level of expertise for energy healers. After clearing and charging the chakra system, and then removing astral energetic blockages, the next layer of work moves towards healing a client’s relational connections. The energetic hardware for dealing with our relationships are found in the invisible webbing that connect us to others: chakra cords.Human beings use both wired and wireless mediums – cords and the Astral world – to energetically relate to other people: to form and maintain contact, and to share important ideas and vital resources with each other.
These tiny filaments represent the energetic “wiring” of the way in which we internalize the outer world – and their relationships – into our personal, inner world. We become truly individuated through these personalized connections, rather than just another predictable personality springing out of our family heritage.While relational chakra cords extend out to others, and astral energies surround, or are embedded within our physical body, self cords emerge out of our cord connections with others and then loop back, sometimes embedding themselves into the chakra head.
Normally these cords grow through our early and healthy interactions with others. They are automatically repaired and enhanced in any adult-to-adult relationship, such as that of a caring family member, a close friend or mentor, or even with your psychotherapist.
The primary focus of chakra cord work is when the healer enters the auric system with the intention to clear or untangle any problematic energetic wiring of the self, as well as to reinforce important connections where necessary. A variation of this is Heritage/DNA chakra cord work address family patterns which we may unconsciously be perpetuating in our own lives.
As these early chakra cord connections are often pre-verbal, held in place by years of habits, a supportive re-wiring of the chakra cord system helps create the circumstances for a leap to another level of awareness.
There are two kinds of people in the world: those that have lost a parent, and those that have not. For many, the experience of the death of a mother or a father is a shattering experience … because you always expected them to be here. The inner child within each of us cannot imagine life without the mother, or the father. We are all unprepared for feeling like an orphan.
When a client books a session with me soon after a parent has died I am often aware of two main issues they are dealing with:
1. Emotional release (expressive) work
2. The energetic DNA transfer (family karma) that may pass between the chakra cords of offspring and parent
It is the energetic DNA transfer (or “download”) across the mother or the father chakra cords after the loss of a parent where I can be helpful for a client. This is a process that happens to many clients, as the heritage information from their newly-deceased mother or father seeks to download into them, as lineage holder.
This is the energy consciousness of the family system seeking passage of family patterns into the future. It is where the family patterns will replicate or sustain themselves, generation after generation. These patterns degrade over three to four generations, and the impact of an ancestor’s struggles upon our current life has been noted in various classical sources.
“The gods visit the sins of the fathers upon the children” – Euripides (c.485-406 B.C.)
“For the sins of your fathers you, though guiltless, must suffer” – Horace (Odes, 3)
“The Lord is long-suffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons to the third and fourth generations”. The Bible (Numbers, 14)
The mechanism for the energetic DNA (or family karma) appears two-fold in nature. Firstly, the patterns are “downloaded” into your auric energy system, at birth so that you get to participate in your family system. Of course, this is usually unconscious on our part, as we assume the personal issues with which we wrestle are exclusively our issues. Shakespeare tells us that “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and entrances. And one man in his time plays many parts” (As You Like It, Act 2, Scene 7). The roles in which we often find ourselves are often just like theater. And we unconsciously participate in a family heritage (or ancestral) drama.
Energy healing work can potentially make the process of taking on (or of not taking on) family karma much more conscious. For many of us, the “sins of the fathers (and the mothers) may need ending right here, with us. We can interrupt the unconscious assumption of family karmic burdens, and come to make new choices. By becoming aware of what is being passed on to us we can pick a new direction.
Using chakra heritage cord work we may find the tools for the transformation of ancestral “iniquity” (absence of spiritual values) and then work towards a fresh start. We can move into the future freed up from much of the compulsion to repeat the past. Or, at the very least, to come to recognize old family karma quickly, and then to nip it in the bud. We can move from being a player on the stage of life, and graduate to authorship … and write the true story of our life, rather than repeat the life of those long gone before us.
Working With Heritage Chakra Cords
Chakra cords connect us to others; we both send and receive information along these energetic lines of contact. As we all know, relationships require some effort in order to make them work well. But the Western way of improving relationships via a psychotherapeutic personal process is relatively new to society.
Prior to the advent of the 1960′s and 1970′s relationships had models (assumed frameworks) within which individuals could pattern themselves. Adults aligning themselves with the excepted social relationship pattern of the day (the “traditional” marriage) and then would be carried along various stages over the course of a lifetime: courtship, marriage, mortgage, children, and finally retirement. As these generational-specific social patterns have eroded over the past thirty years (resulting in high rates of divorce and family breakups) the psychotherapy model heroically stepped in to save the day. “Look at your issues”, said the psychotherapists, “and let us show you how to work through any problem in your relationships.”
But one problem with this approach is that most people want others to change; very few people want to embrace significant change for themselves, or to engage in what one psychotherapist termed “The hard-work miracle”: personal development. Additionally, change is not the act of simply changing our minds and then making a new choice; many of the patterns in our relationships flow from a source other than our personal history. The apparent power that our relationship patterns have in our lives is strongly embedded and reinforced in our habitual actions. To the energy healer, these forces flow along chakra cords and are fueled by heritage-based Astral thought forms. To the energy healer your relationship issue may not be your issue: it may be a heritage/DNA one, fueled by hidden Astral energies.
Layered within each chakra cord lies your heritage habits, like growth rings on a tree, where your family patterns will await the right time and circumstances to become active in your life. When triggered, these family patterns attract a series of events or individuals into your life as a way to perpetuate their particular pattern. These repeating family dynamics are often masked from sight because they may skip a generation. Your personal life issues are most likely variations on your grandmother’s or grandfathers challenges, either maternal or paternal. In order to get to your personal development you have to peel away – and resolve – your family “karma”. This is always easier said, of course, than done.
While I am a big fan of psychotherapy as an essential tool to process our personal and relationship issues I feel more tools are needed on our transformational journey through life. We often need to clear away – or in some cases, connect to – the energetic patterning of our ancestors so we can see the new choices available beyond our current family situation. Clearing or connecting to the DNA/heritage patterns within the auric field is arguably more important than a past life healing as heritage issues are eternally present to our consciousness system, whereas past life issues are most often traumatic events left unresolved in the astral component of the auric field. Of course it is important to work through any incomplete death or unresolved life, but heritage/DNA cord work is usually far closer to home. It lives in each human cell, in real time, supported by memories held in both the physical and the auric field.
If there is a regular sequence my clients follow it is this: triage (get out of immediate danger), healing (resolve shock or trauma to the energy system, and then return to the pre-trauma developmental state), reflexive personal process (learning to work through adult personal challenges in an effective way), and then to glimpse new opportunities, which is followed by improved relationships and other events that take your life to a new and improved level. One of the keys to moving through this sequence is the awareness and clearing of heritage patterns. Think of it as a jump out of your usual outcome, and into a new evolutionary stream of development.
In many cases, we are also separated from the energetic support offered by our ancestors. This is the reason Asian people honor their ancestors, and keep shrines to important people: even though an ancestor has died he or she can still influence the family member in the present. We can still draw upon their blessing, support, and consciousness, because we have an energetic chakra cord connection to them. This can be helpful if you are not supported by your birth parents; you can reach back to grand-parents, great-grandparents, and great-great grandparents, to find energetic support. The maximum limit appears to be four generations.
