There are times in our lives when we must tend to/prune our relationships with people, places or things or end our relationship with them completely.
One way to do this in a good way is cord cutting. For details in cord cutting read here. When doing this kind of ceremony, it is helpful to have a tool specific to the task. The right kind of cord cutting tool for you can be created or found.
Essentially, what you are looking for is an object that looks and or feels like it can be used to sever something. Items that come to mind are rocks, crystals, sticks, or something more literal like a blade.
As this is a metaphysical tool, I tend to enjoy using something that I can ascribe a metaphysical property to that makes it feel different than how it works in ordinary reality. For my cord cutting tool, I use a quartz crystal that I imbue with the intention that it will act as this kind of severing implement. If being more literal works for you, stick with something like a pair of scissors or a knife. Keep in mind that you will be holding this tool close to your body. I suggest that if you use a blade, that it be a dull blade.
Asking whichever object you choose if it wants to be a cord cutting tool is important. This is a conversation held in the in-between spaces. You can certainly ask outloud if an object wishes to work with you in this way and asking quietly, internally, from the heart space is good too. Using your heart is both a good way to ask for and receive information. Listen with your heart for the answer. It may be an automatic yes or no that you hear your heart say, or it may be more of a sensation of either acceptance or repulsion.
Once you have found an object that wants to work with you, it is time to create it. The creation portion of this work will include an imbuing/programming of the object’s energy. It may also include adorning the item with certain embellishments or symbols that make sense to you and the task you are assigning it.
When creating a cord cutting tool, whether it is a literal object or less literal, it is important to clear the object of any energy that it is holding. We want to bring the energy of the tool to a place of neutrality. For instance, if you are using a pair of sewing scissors, you want to clear those scissors of the “sewing scissor” programming. Found or purchased objects may carry energy from previous owners, those who handled it before you, or the environment it has been sitting in.
