Sometimes, after a relationship has ended, many of us have problems letting go of someone you love.
A lot of my clients often complain of feeling haunted or even possessed by the dearly departed (who probably isn't even thinking of you at all and is busy happily running away with his or her new partner.)
It's like the person has left an indelible imprint upon your heart and many of us feel that we can't go on until the ex returns.
The energy of the ex might be manifesting itself in all sorts of ways --- in what you perceive to be little omens or reminders that occur in every day life (such as a phrase or song lyric) or even as a visitor in your dreams.
There are all kinds of cures for this phenomenon, (everything from burning bundles of sage to clear the room of the ex's vibe to throwing out every single reminder of him or her, including the bed).
Yet before you ditch the Sealy Posturepedic, I suggest you try this little exercise called "Cutting The Cord."
The idea behind this is that whenever we connect to someone we connect to him or her at the point of our solar plexus, the area just below your diaphragm.
When we first meet someone and fall in love, we spend a lot of time building up this energy which lightworkers say looks like a rope of light that connects two people.
However, even after one person disappears, the rope can still remain.
Often, the person who is left behind spends a lot of time fortifying that rope with his or her own psychic energy in an attempt to bring the person back.
The ex can compare to a psychic vampire, who is gleefully sucking back the energy that the dumped person is sending them.
It doesn't even matter if you are sending them bad thoughts or resentment.
That energy is often translated to them in the purest form of astral energy -- and they use it to transmute and feed their new relationship.
How do you cut the cord on an ex?
So in order to prevent yourself being sucked dry by the psychic vampire, oops I mean the ex, I suggest you try this:
Lie down on the bed, breathe deeply and become as relaxed as you can.
Now picture the other person and the cord of light that you created when you thought the both of you would be connected for all eternity.
Visualize that cord as best you can and examine it.
How thick is it?
What color is it?
What is it made of?
Now choose your weapon.
What will you use to cut this cord?
Do you need a knife or is the connection so strong that it can be broken only by hacking at it with a machete?
If a machete doesn't work, try a buzz saw.
My favorite is a huge pair of golden scissors.
Now, in your mind's eye, snip, hack chop, sever ... do whatever you have to do to cut the cord.
Picture the other person floating away from you like a helium balloon let loose in the sky ... and smile and wave "bye bye!"
Oddly, one of the side benefits (or drawbacks depending on how you look at it) is that the other person senses the detachment.
Like a greedy psychic vampire, they will come back to see where their source of energy has gone.
So not only does this exercise your astral health, but it often brings the ex back.
That is, if you even want them back at all.
