9 Effective Tips to Manage Chronic Pain

Published

on

chronic pain tips image

Chronic pain is basically any pain that has a duration of 3-6 months and could extend much further. A popular alternative definition for chronic pain states: involving no arbitrarily fixed duration. It is “pain that extends beyond the expected period of healing”.

Epidemiological studies have found that 10.1% to 55.2% of people in various countries live their lives trying to manage their chronic pain.

I’ve recently dealt with a 2 year battle of sciatic nerve pain stemming from a pinched nerve caused by my L5/S1 disc herniating out onto my sciatic nerve, sending shooting, searing hot, cripplingly demoralizing pain from my lower back all the way down my right leg, leaving me all but bedridden.

Obviously, there are different levels, degrees, and types of pain. Out of all the different types that I’ve experienced in my life, including birthing labor pains, this was the worst!

Unfortunately, western medicine usually treats the symptoms of the issue but rarely delves into dealing with the root of the issue.

There is a common practice in western medicine to treat pain with opiates, which has caused an opiate epidemic. Opiates are highly addictive, causing internal damage to otherwise healthy organs and they don’t actually fix the root issue. In my experience, I have found one medical professional after the next that wanted to prescribe pain meds but did not have a lot to offer in the way of getting to the root of my issue. While you’re experiencing chronic pain, it can be a daunting and painful challenge just getting to and from doctors offices, having imaging done and getting little to no answers, only to leave with yet another prescription that can only barely alleviate the pain.

This journey took me on an in-depth discovery of myself, the medical community, and ways to effectively manage chronic pain. I’m going to share with you a recipe of practices that I created for myself to manage my pain.

1. Stay Away from Opiates

I myself chose not to take opiates to relieve my pain. I did not want to add insult to injury and create yet even more illness from taking addictive pain meds.

Opiates include a variety of drugs ranging from legal drugs such as fentanyl, codeine, and morphine, to illegal drugs such as heroin. The one thing they all have in common is the ability to depress or slow down the body’s central nervous system.

There are three classifications of opiates:

The first group contains naturally occurring opium derivatives including morphine.

The second group contains partially synthetic derivatives of morphine, called opioid drugs such as hydrocodone, oxycodone, and oxymorphone.

The third group contains synthetic compounds like Fentanyl, alfentanil, levorphanol, Meperidine, methadone, codeine, and Propoxyphene.

These drugs only mask the root of the issue, they have harmful side effects, and will NOT cure the root cause.

Pain is your bodies way of communicating with you and where you need to focus your attention. It’s an alarm to get you to the root of the problem.

Opiate usage can dull and numb the senses, keep you unaware of your true pain levels and how to manage it.

If you do have to take them, moderate and minimize: use only when the pain is unbearable.

Instead, I chose pharmaceutical grade THC and CBD oils and tinctures that do not have addictive qualities. Thankfully there has been a surge of new information surrounding medical cannabis, CBD oils, and tinctures along with passionate individuals and companies that are creating effective and safe ratios to treat and relieve chronic pain and inflammation.

2. Meditation and Affirmations

Meditation is one of the most important practices that you can learn to assist you in bringing the intensity of your pain down, to calm the nervous system, and to center yourself.

A calm mind is a powerful pain reliever.

For more in-depth information on how to begin your practice of meditation read Katya’s article “Meditations For Beginners: Best Ways To Start Your Practice”

Learning to breathe into your pain, to let go and surrender, will be one of your best tools.

It takes presence, courage, commitment, and consistency to evolve your practice, but you will notice a big difference in your ability to manage your pain.

Daily affirmations of healing are a must.

Visualize and verbalize your vibrant health. Only speak healing words into yourself, speak as if you are already healed. See yourself doing the things you want to do, and adopt a belief that it’s on the way.

Discouragement will come up a lot when you’re feeling awful and experiencing debilitating pain, so you have to be disciplined in your desire to heal.

Allow yourself to feel discouraged as you should, considering the pain, but don’t wallow in it. Be willing to pick yourself back up and move forward.

A wonderful book on healing is “You can Heal your Life” by Louise Hay.

3. Take the Initiative

What exactly does this mean? It means not leaving the responsibility of your healing and health in the hands of medical practitioners. You have to take control of your destiny, of your healing, of your well being. No one is going to come and wave a magic wand and end the misery. You have to dig yourself out.

You are alone with your pain, people can love and be supportive in your journey but it’s you who has to endure and manage your pain. You have to will yourself healthy, you have to do the “work” if that means physical therapy, show up EVERY single time, even when you don’t feel like it. Even if that means minimizing your activity and resting, do it. If that means eating healthy foods to assist your body in healing, give up the junk. And if that means asking and allowing others to care for you, be vulnerable and ask. It’s about balancing your inner will to heal and your outer practical steps towards that healing.

One thing about being in long extended periods of pain with limited mobility, you will have to become comfortable being vulnerable.

Don’t expect anyone to make it better for you, make it better for yourself!

4. Diet, Mobility, and Exercise

Our bodies are divinely created to endure immense levels of trauma and injury. With that being said, it’s vital to feed yourself the proper nutrition to aid in your healing. Hydration is number one, and is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Inflammation is the cause for the majority of health issues today. Drink at least an ounce of water for every pound you weigh. Make sure you are choosy about your water quality and the container that holds your water. Glass being the ideal receptacle and make sure you are praying into your water. Water has consciousness and responds to your positive intentions. Positive intentions spoken into your food and water changes the molecular makeup.

For more education on this see Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work. Here’s a snippet of an experiment where he proves this.

Eat live, fresh, organically sourced food. Lots of green foods, which are filled with chlorophyll.

Chlorophyll is a green pigment present in plants which facilitates the absorbtion of light from the sun. Consuming chlorophyll from vegetal sources can help with blood detoxification, boosts energy naturally, fights fatigue and assists in the prevention of cancer.

Eat foods that will support your vital life force energy: veggies, fruits, live, whole organic foods.

Try to avoid dairy products, which increase inflammation in the body.

Avoid caffeine. Caffeine exhausts the nervous system and can decrease your pain threshold, making the nervous system more alert to pain.

Take supplements!

Do the research, expand your knowledge, seek alternative methods and be consistent.

A few really good ones to mention are Curamin: a combination of curcumin (It is the principal curcuminoid of turmeric, a member of the ginger family) and boswellia (also known as Indian Frankincense. Resin made from boswellia extract has been used for centuries in Asian and African folk medicine. It’s believed to treat chronic inflammatory illnesses, as well as a number of other health conditions). When curcumin and boswellia are combined, the boswellia increases the absorption rate of the anti-inflammatory compounds in the curcumin.

Most illness and pain is derived from inflammation in the body.

Magnesium is vital even if you are not suffering from chronic pain, but especially when you are experiencing high levels of inflammation. Magnesium is a powerful pain-relieving mineral. In fact, some researchers believe this mineral holds the key to resolving many types of chronic pain and most people are deficient in magnesium.

In the body, magnesium converts vitamin D, which the body needs to take advantage of bone-strengthening calcium – into a form that it can use efficiently.

Be as active as you can be, without adding extra pain to yourself. Movement will be your friend. Even if it’s difficult and painful, movement is a huge step forward from staying stagnant and sedentary.

Even small attempts towards keeping active will be beneficial.

5. Salt Bath’s

Angela Fitts Salt Bath Image

I can’t say enough about this wonderful, easy practice. During my intense period of chronic pain, I literally took 2-3 hot, epsom salt baths a day! First off it takes the weight of gravity off and allows you to relax your muscles. The salt pulls out toxins and the heat aides in pure relaxation and lightens muscle tension. My baths meant everything to me. They help soothe tremendously.

6. Use Alternative, Holistic Pain Therapies

We are so fortunate to have access to alternative health practitioners: massage, essential oils, acupuncture, reiki, sound healing, network spinal analysis (Gentle precise touch to the spine cues the brain to create new wellness promoting strategies).

Create a cocktail of alternative and conventional care that is personalized and geared toward your health condition. Be open to researching and seeking out qualified practitioners that can assist in your journey to healing.

Conventional medicine is a wonderful and life-saving resource, not to be discounted by any means. Using discernment when to move forward in exploring alternative options is key. Or vice versa knowing when to seek conventional medicine when alternative options you’ve sought aren’t providing long-term relief.

We’ve created so much resistance around the word “alternative” because somehow that translates to negating traditional medical practices. I found that it’s vital to be open, educated and willing to explore and experiment with newer therapies available. When you are suffering debilitating chronic pain and illness you have to be willing to try. When you’ve exhausted traditional western medicine and it isn’t helping, you have to be willing to expand your own practice, remove resistances and actively seek those who are truly informed about “alternative” therapy and healing modalities.

There is most certainly a need to use discernment, same thing in the case of exhausting alternative therapies you need to know when it’s time to seek conventional medicine.

I tried to heal myself naturally first through noninvasive practices, but as time went on I sought out a neurosurgeon and turns out I did indeed need surgery to fix my injury. I don’t regret the path I took at all, the organic, alternative therapies I did in the interim were not in vain. It kept me physically strong and prepared me for surgery and allowed me a speedy recovery. I believe surgery should always be a last resort.

7. Be your own Cheerleader

Be your own Cheerleader Image

When experiencing day in and day out extreme pain you have to become your own best friend, your own cheerleader and your own voice of encouragement.

It’s wonderful to have family and friends encouraging you and sending beautiful blessings and intentions, but unfortunately, when you’re dealing with chronic pain specifically, you will find that most of your time is spent alone. You’re going to have to find that inner voice that speaks loudly to your healing and well being.

You will cry, you will ache, you will feel like giving up, you will be confused, you will be exhausted, you will be discouraged, you will be in agony and you will be enraged and every single expression is worthy of being felt and heard.

You mustn’t suppress any of it. When you’re done feeling it, let it pass and move into being proactive about healing.

Look at others powerful testimonies of healing to encourage you. Surround yourself with pleasant things, stay as active as you can, fill your time with positive reading, and reflections. Get to know yourself, enjoy your own company. Find healthy outlets to keep your mind occupied: writing, reading, researching, crafts, arts, music, whatever your personal interests are.

8. Practice Gratitude and Compassion towards yourself

Gratitude Compassion Practice Image

Practicing daily gratitude is essential. When you are experiencing intense pain, it’s not going be easy to practice. Even on your worst days it’s more important than ever to stay mindful, and saturate yourself in gratitude, this is going to lift your mood, remind you of all the blessings you still have and that you will eventually heal and it keeps your heart open and content.

Taking a huge dose of gratitude the moment you wake up every morning will affirm your vibration and transmute victim mentality. Be gentle, loving, soft, nurturing and compassionate with yourself, don’t wait for others to give you this, do it for yourself.

9. Get as much quality sleep as possible

Sleeping is essential to healing. When you’re in extreme pain, it’s very difficult to sleep. Drink chamomile tea before bed, take a hot bath with lavender oil, take melatonin, make sure your bedding is always clean and that you have proper pillows and body alignment for sleeping.

Wear comfortable sleepwear or sleep nude for optimal sleep. Do breathing exercises before bed to calm the nervous system. Make sure your room is dark, light can be disruptive. Turn off all gadgets ie: tv, phones, computers, and tablets. Hope for a better tomorrow and be grateful you got through your day.

The Bottom Line

Healing is not linear, some days will be better than others. Try not to get discouraged on the tougher days, know that better days are ahead of you.

You can heal, you can manage your pain without becoming addicted to harmful drugs and you can be your own advocate, it’s all about not giving over your power solely to the medical community. Your healing is your responsibility and that should empower you.

Happy healing, I hope these tips encourage you to start an optimistic approach to overcoming your chronic pain. Remember that information is just information, concepts floating around until you actually put things into practice. No one can do it for you but you!

4 Reasons Why You Should Practice Tantric Therapy

Published

on

tantric therapy image

Tantric therapy is a sacred healing practice from the ancient Hindu tradition. It dates back to over 5,000 years ago. It is a spiritual and energetic approach to life, love, and intimacy. You can achieve tantric therapy through practices such as breathing, mindfulness (meditation), moving energy, and sensual touch. As a result, you learn how to connect with yourself and the world at large in a real, beautiful, poetic, and deep manner.

How Does Tantric Therapy Work?

We use the following tantric techniques:

These methods open the energy system in such a way that dormant energy moves up the spine, initiating healing and transformation throughout the body.

You see, as our bodies age through the years, they develop constrictions and contractions. Tantric therapy loosens the body, allowing for transformation in the physical, emotional, and spiritual realms.

Similarly, as children, we were all stress-free, full of potential, and with amazing zeal for life. We had pure love and awareness for others. What changed us are life and its struggles. When we employ tantra as a self-development hack, tantra expands our body and soul back to its original state.

So, this strategy will enhance your strength, compassion, focus, and stress management skills. It will make sure you get that undivided attention to your dreams, aspirations, and goals in life.

Tantric Therapy and Spirituality (Self-Development/Meditation)

Tantric meditation image

In this context, tantra is about directing all energies, capabilities, and intelligence towards you. In addition, it involves connecting all that is within us with spirituality, including our partners.

Through its emphasis on reciting mantras, meditation, and belief in supernatural deities, tantric therapy offers easy communication channels. Ones that allow you to speak your mind out and claim the impossible. Such help you feel well cared for and passionate about life.

In a nutshell, when you employ physical efforts via your sexuality, creativity, and mental energy to reach ambitions you hold dearly in your heart or to develop your life, you have experienced tantric therapy.

And when all your efforts come from deep within, you become affectionate and mindful to other people especially your partner.

Health and Spiritual Effects of Tantric Therapy

Tantric therapy is a remedy for chronic ailments. It replaces them with vigor and enthusiasm by enabling the body to use the healing energy within it effectively. Tantra also clears blockages that hinder personal developments. As a result, you no longer experience stagnation in life.

Tantra works by purifications of the contractions that emanate from our day-to-day life. By also distributing essential energy throughout the body, we realize maximum personal development.

Tantric therapy takes care of confusion, anxiety, and emotional distress. It enhances your confidence, esteem, and high IQ. In return, you become wise, alert, and sharp. The therapy unleashes your potential to unimaginable levels and nothing that can hinder your progress.

A Tool for Sexual Freedom

Yoni Yoga Image

We all want to live a fulfilling life, right? In the west, people confuse tantra for masturbation. However, while sexual satisfaction and multiple orgasms is a welcome benefit, tantra focuses on a much broader sexual satisfaction. It uses a holistic approach to awaken sexual organs. The therapy is in such a way that even your brain receptors are awakened. As a result, with tantra, you break the chains of your past.

If you have been a victim of sexual abuse, for example, tantra will clear off your mind from the negativity such sexual trauma brings. You also realize the potential you hold within you; both sexually and mentally.

In other words, tantric therapy brings intimate healing to people who’ve been sexually abused before. It gives them a platform for connection and love by freeing them off guilt and shame. They also get to learn new ways of intimacy, which are fun, exciting and sacred.

Henceforth, others no longer define sexuality for you. Instead, you can take full charge and still enjoy more benefits. This is a life with profound joy, excitement, and freedom!

Role of Tantric Therapy in Relationships

What is tantra inage

Tantric therapy combines the energy of the whole body to bring us closer to our partners. In essence, it’s engineered towards intimate healing. Tantric therapy involves massage and sensual touches to stimulate the nerves. This creates a sensation of pleasure to your brain. It has therapeutic functions that bring greater joy and awakening to these senses.

In doing so, you overlook the weakness, shortcomings, and mistakes of your partner to enjoy the “now” moment and give feelings of appreciation.

The main goal of tantra is to do away with any blocks in our relationships. Such blocks include stress, tension, and pressures of everyday life. It releases tension in both partners, even if it’s the woman who physically experiences tantra. As a result, you can connect deeper and be better lovers.

In addition, once you achieve sexual freedom (as discussed above), you get a chance to enjoy intimate relationships and to trust again because you become more receptive of touch. Once you get mental healing, you will also achieve emotional breakthroughs.

Finally, tantra helps couples to connect better despite their busy lives. It is easier to get caught up with raising kids, advancing careers, and living up to societal expectations. But tantric therapy serves as a constant reminder that your sole purpose of getting together as a couple was to share love and happiness as you build a fantastic future together. This is mostly experienced when your partner is the one offering you tantric therapy.

And through tantric therapy, your whole experience in a relationship serves as an avenue for meditation. In return, you and your partner will get closer and get happier and fulfilled.

The Bottom Line

Tantric therapy is an essential practice for the overall wellbeing. You harmonize your spiritual, physical, and mental connections, as you experience satisfaction on a new level.

Karma Yoga: The Act of Living Selflessly and Enjoying the Benefits

Published

on

Karma Yoga Image

What is Karma Yoga? In Hinduism, one can adapt four spiritual paths in their lifestyle.

These are:

  • Jnana Yoga (The Path of Knowledge)
  • Raja Yoga (The Path of Psychological Experimentation)
  • Bhakti Yoga (The Path of Devotion)
  • Karma Yoga (The Path of Work)

These four paths to self-realization are based on the fact that human beings are emotional, active, reflective, and experimental in nature. In this discussion, I will explain more about the Path of Work.

What is Karma Yoga?

Also known as Karma Marga, the path of work advocates that we endeavor to dutifully and selflessly render our services to others regardless of our stages in life.

Lord Krishna summarizes the process of the path of work as detailed in the ancient text, the Bhagavad Gita, as follows :

“Therefore, without being attached to the fruits of activities, one should act as a matter of duty, for by working without attachment one attains the Supreme.”

This text simply means that people have a duty to offer their skills to humanity and in the preservation of nature to the best of their abilities. They should do this while exercising zero affinity to the effects or rewards of their works. Instead, they should strive to work as a service to God.

Offering service for the benefit of others is a form of prayer in Hinduism. It is human nature to seek rewards for works done. The Path of Work discourages this habit. Instead, a karma yogi (one who practices selfless acts) will serve others as a mother, a teacher, a doctor or a cook, without expecting a reward in return.

As you embrace the Karma yoga, you should differentiate it from Kriya Yoga, which is the practice of ritual action. The Practice of Work has a direct impact on others/society whereas Kriya Yoga focuses on cleansing our mind, without a direct impact on society.

Benefits of Karma Yoga

The practice of action for the benefit of others offers many physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits as follows:

Purifies the heart

Heart Chakra Healing image

Selfless acts assist us to let go of our negative tendencies. Any hatred, jealousy or selfishness is now replaced with love. Having a pure heart is the primary benefit of living a selfless life.

Instills Discipline and Dedication

Karma yogis focus their physical and emotional strengths towards using their professional and social skillset to the service of others. They, therefore, make a deliberate effort to enroll in the necessary training and apprenticeship to improve their skills. One learns early enough that no job is superior to the other. Hence, the karma yogi dedicates his efforts towards doing their best with what they have.

Mental Growth

By adopting a broader perspective of life in carrying out our everyday duties, we tend to appreciate others more and therefore attain fulfillment and happiness regardless of how small or big our actions are.

We achieve mental health when we learn to manage our emotions. When one is immersed in service for the benefit of others, he/she no longer has fear of being imperfect or the inability to fit into the norms of the masses. Hence, anxiety, depression or other mental health complications are no longer a concern for a karma yogi.

Perfect Balance

Meditation for beginners tips image

Working for the benefit of others enables one to lead a balanced life. We are better parents, disciplined children, dedicated workers, and better partners when we have purpose and clarity in our actions.

Living authentic lifestyles is easily attained when we learn how to prioritize our needs without focusing too much on self.

Develop Humility, Selflessness, Sympathy, and Love

As you practice living for others, you learn to tame your ego. Selfish acts are replaced with pure love for humanity. You no longer see yourself as an individual but as part of the wider ecosystem that needs to be protected.

Attain Spiritual Growth

Mindful meditation image

When a karma yogi dedicates all his actions to God, he attains an inner spiritual development. Drawing closer to God, in turn, makes it easier for us to execute our duties. 

Honest Intentions

A karma yogi learns to base his actions on the broader picture of life. By doing this he/she is hardly a victim of selfish acts, egocentric behavior, anger, envy or pain as a result of the short term failures he may go through.

How to Embrace Karma Yoga in Our Everyday Living

Giving to humanity is possible even when one has little wealth. However, our self-ego and impure mind make the initial stages quite difficult. In order to practice selfless habits in our lifestyle, here are some everyday acts that you can start with:

Charitable Actions

make a change image

  • Distributing water and foodstuffs to the homeless
  • Offering free consultation to poor people who can’t afford medical services
  • Responding to a call for a blood donation
  • Offering transport for accident victims
  • Giving tuition classes to underprivileged children
  • Volunteer at a home for the old

Moral Actions

Make a deliberate effort not to hurt the feelings of others by what you do for a living. Consider the long term effects of setting up your businesses or undertaking your projects that have a major impact on the lives of others.

Be mindful of Mother Nature. We gain from nature by preserving it from generation to generation. Join the global campaigns that strive to maintain a pollution-free ecosystem. Protect our endangered species.

eco-friendly image

Be mindful of others. For example, if you have an option, take a bus instead of your personal car and make your moral contribution towards decongesting traffic.

Set a list of virtues and live by them. Be a person of integrity, self-control, compassionate and generous in giving. Always have a positive attitude in everything you do.

Finally, always start by giving from what you have.

Conclusion

The practice of Karma Yoga has been passed from one generation to the other for thousands of years. To attain the full benefits of this practice, we need to focus on benefiting others by our acts and make it a daily routine. Make a deliberate effort to be on the lookout for opportunities that demand your physical, mental or spiritual input to better the lives of others. Only then can we find purpose and attain liberalization in life.

Karmic Relationship Healing: Effective Practice To Let Your Past Go!

Published

on

karmic relationship healing image

Your present is a reflection of your past worldview. Take a look around! Everything you have today is the result of your thoughts and actions in the past. If you’re not happy with your life or have problems with relationships you probably need to consider a karmic relationship healing.

As long as you’re attached to your past you give your energy to it. Thereby you take away the energy from the present. When you’re constantly reflecting on memories in your head (no matter if they are pleasant or unpleasant) it leads to a biased perception of the present moment. The present moment, in turn, has an impact on what your future will be. If there is not enough energy in the present moment, it will be even less in the future. Thus, your thoughts about the past have an impact not only on your present but also creates an energy deficit in your future.

Karmic Relationship Healing And Chakras

Very often other people “pull” us into the past. It can be people that hurt us, people we hurt, people with whom we argued, people we broke up with, etc. The memories of these people (conscious or subconscious) take energy through the energy cords that block our chakras.

Energy cord is an energy channel, which is formed as a result of a violation of harmonious energy interaction of a person with other people and forms attachments.

Negative emotions form cords on the corresponding chakras.

Karmic cords image

The Danger Of Energy Cords

The energy cords are dangerous because they cause energy failures in the energy field: from slowing the flow of energy to its complete stop in a certain chakra.

In addition, the cords significantly aggravate the communication, depriving you of liberty, weaken your connection with your Higher Self, and inhibit your development.

energy cords image

If your negative emotions are very strong, they can form energy cords that can persist for several incarnations. Moreover, in each new incarnation, you will attract those souls with whom you have energy cords again and again. And this circle of incarnations among the same souls will continue until you release yourself from these cords. Such a circle of incarnations, tied to the same souls, is called ”karmic connection”.

It is the absence of attachments (energy cords) that is an indicator of a free spirit. Therefore, in order to fully and harmoniously develop, it is necessary to get rid of karmic cords and free yourself from attachments.

Liberation from the energy cords does not imply the destruction of the energy connection between people but means the acquisition of freedom at the disposal of one’s life. For example, freed from the attachment to parents, you will not stop loving them and will not lose their love, but will find a harmonious relationship without pressure and manipulation.

The Most Common Attachments

Now let’s take a look at the most common energy cords that can affect your life in a very negative way.

Resentment

This energy cord has a negative impact on health. When you feel offended, in your thoughts you return to your offender, again and again, thereby generously giving your vital energy to your offender.

Guilt

This cord is based on your aggression directed at yourself. When we feel guilty, we realize that we can not correct what we’ve done. In our mind, we constantly analyze the thoughts of how we can beg forgiveness from the one who we hurt, and what we can do to make amends. As a result of systematic analyzing of such thoughts, the energy cord is formed.

Jealousy, Dependence, Passion

These kinds of cords arise when one person has a need to possess another person. He constantly thinks about the object of his lust, dreams about it, passionately wanting to get what he wants. Such thoughts create a strong energy cord.

Unrequited love

This cord has a very strong negative impact on health. It pulls out a very large amount of energy from the one who loves, and the one who’s loved. Naturally, here we are talking about illusory love because true love is always unconditional and brings only positive emotions.

illusory vs unconditional love image

Revenge

This cord is created as a result of building a plan of revenge in your head.

Pity, desire to save

This kind of cord is formed by ego. It is the ego that thinks that you are a Savior and a hero, makes you think that you are doing a good job, constantly “hanging” other people’s problems on your shoulders, and thinking that without your help and support people cannot cope. However, at the energy level, a cord is formed, on which your energy flows away towards the person you are so desperately trying to save. Thus, you become a donor for the energy vampire. Such a binding blocks both: your own development (because you simply do not have enough energy for it) and the development of the person to whom you are so actively helping to solve problems (because you take away from him/her the necessary life lessons for evolution and spiritual growth). As a result, interfering in the life of another person, you form a strong karmic connection.

Parent cords

parents control image

These cords are based on the desire to control your child. As a rule, parents explain their behavior with care and love, but this is a big mistake. Love cannot exist where there are an addiction and a desire to subjugate another person. Love lives only where freedom exists. If parents do not accept their child as an independent person and do not give him full freedom of self-realization, their energy completely blocks his main chakras, which prevents him from successfully building his personal life.

Karmic Relationship Healing Practice

No matter what kind of energy cords and attachments we have there is always something we can do. I’m talking about self-healing. Let me share with you a very powerful practice that provides a karmic relationship healing. This practice is aimed at the liberation from negative energy cords to a particular person.

First, you need to find out who you are attached to. Give yourself time to think about it. Who comes to mind most often? Write down the names of all the people you think about most often. After all, these are the people you have karmic cords with.

Writing notes image

Now you have a list of people to whom you are energetically attached. Follow the practice below, starting with the first person on your list.

  1. Light a candle with the intention to get rid of negative energy cords to … (say the name and last name of the person).
  2. Take a relaxed position, close your eyes.
  3. Invite the Higher self of the person you’re trying to let go and heal your karma from. To do this, say three times: “I invite the Higher Self of … (name and last name of the person) for karmic relationship healing and for removing the negative energy cords that exist between us for the sake of our Highest Good.”
  4. Visualize in your imagination this person in front of you. Imagine how a Golden ray comes out of his (her) Solar Plexus Chakra and enters your Solar Plexus Chakra. Concentrate on that ray.
  5. Visualize that you’re looking into the eyes of the person. Say 8 times: “I sincerely forgive you for everything you’ve done!”
  6. Keep concentrating on the Golden ray. This is your connection with the person. Through this ray, his (her) Higher Self receives messages from you in this meditation. Look into the eyes of the person, say 8 times: “Please forgive me for everything I’ve done!”
  7. Keep looking into the eyes of the person, say 8 times: “I sincerely and from the bottom of my heart thank you for everything you’ve done!”
  8. Now embrace this person in your imagination, and imagine the Golden-green ray of love coming out of your Heart chakra and going into his (her) Heart chakra. Accompany this ray with your love and words: “I love you!” (say 8 times).
  9. Now, in your imagination, move away from this person at arm’s length, and imagine how from each of your chakras to his respective chakras stretch cords similar to wires (there are seven of them).
  10. Pick up an imaginary lighter, light it and start annealing each cord, starting with the cord that connects your Muladhara chakras and finishing with the cord that connects your Crown chakras. Accomplish these actions with the words: “I completely forgive and let you go!» (8 times).
  11. Once you’ve annealed the last cord on your Crown chakras, imagine a wall of flame between you and the visualized person. At the same time, each of you is surrounded by a Golden cocoon of divine love. These Golden cocoons are healing all your wounds from annealing cords. Watch the flame between you, and as it burns, keep saying, “I’m letting you go!”.
  12. When the flame has dissipated, you will see yourself alone, surrounded by a Golden light, and realize that all the emotions and limitations that have been enclosed in the cords are only an illusion, a life lesson that you have passed.
  13. Thank the Universe for this lesson.
    Slowly open your eyes.

The number of such practices for each case is individual. It depends on the binding force. Sometimes it is enough to do this practice just one time. But still, to consolidate the result, it is better to do it 8 times for each person you’re trying to heal your karmic relationship with.

It is desirable to do a karmic relationship healing with all your friends. Don’t worry, the communication with them won’t stop if you’re interested in it.

After this practice, the person with whom you severed the energy cords, will feel that you have stopped feeding him (her) with your energy and will try to remind you of himself (herself). It can be a phone call, e-mail, another attempt to put pressure on you or something else. In other words, he (she) will try to provoke you to get emotional about something, so that you, once again, under the influence of his provocation, give him your energy. He (she) will do his (her) best to restore the cords. In this case, try to behave kindly with him (her), do not succumb to provocations. After that repeat your karmic relationship healing practice with this person once again to fix the result.

The Bottom Line

You can do karmic relationship healing practice as many times as you need. Sometimes I feel that I need to do it again with the same people I already healed my karma from. Our life changes every second of our existence. Today we feel like we have no attachments but when tomorrow comes we may feel that our old attachments rise again. If you feel that communication with some people isn’t pleasurable for you anymore it means on energy level you have cords to these people. And through these cords, you’re losing your energy. Before you distance yourself from these people do yourself a favor – do a karmic relationship healing first. I’m sure you don’t want to attract the same kinds of communication problems in the future.
