Cut the Cord

Today I’m going to share with you one of my favorite meditations, the cord-cutting practice. If you’ve been on a spiritual path for a while, or if you’re familiar with visualization meditations, you may know about this practice.

…Or it may sound crazy to you.

But if it does, I promise you’ll dig it the second you try it!

Wherever you are, this practice can completely heal you physically, heal you energetically, change your relationships and change your overall well-being if you practice it regularly.

I’ve been in a daily practice of cord-cutting for the past 30 days and I feel lighter, cleaner and happier.

Here’s how it goes.

When we have attachments to other people, whether a coworker, a lover, a friend or even someone we meet very briefly, an energy cord can be attached. People can send you cords and you don’t even know it.

Those energy cords can actually become a huge drag. They can bring you down, particularly if these cords attach you to someone you have resentment you need to forgive. Cords may be attached to exes, people you long to see again. That attachment can feel like an immense weight and you don’t even know where it’s coming from!

For the practice of cord-cutting, you get into a meditative state and invite in any type of guide you believe in, whether that’s angels or God or your inner wisdom or the Universe. I like to invite in Archangel Michael, the protector, a huge angel being who carries a huge golden sword.

In my mind’s eye I invite in Michael, and he is there to cut that cord for me.

So welcome in the angel Michael or any other being or presence who can cut cords on your behalf. Ask him to go down that list, slicing through those cords with ease.

Keep in mind these energetic cords likely lead to people you care for very deeply. You’re not cutting this person out of your life — you’re simply cutting this energetic cord that transmits negative energy.

In fact, you can even ask to cut a cord that’s positive but feels too needy.

Say, “I ask you to cut these cords now.”

When you do this, the presence of that angelic realm settles in, and you feel peace come over you and a great deal of support.

This practice is something I’ve been doing for the last 30 days and I feel happier, healthier and lighter. My consciousness is freer.

If you’d like me to guide you through this meditation, you can grab a copy of my guided cord-cutting meditation here, or you can simply close your eyes and invite in Archangel Michael or another figure and guide yourself.

This practice will heal you, serve you and change you in the most miraculous ways.

Try it out and trust in the process. This isn’t just a visualization — this is an energy shift that will support you in ways you can’t even imagine.

I hope this serves you.

  1. Thank you Gabby! I have been feeling the need to cut the cord on many situations and people that I am realizing that have been really toxic in my life. I´ve been sick, anxious, and having trouble sleeping and I am very ready to let that go. Thank you for your message and I´ll try the meditation!

    God bless!

  2. Will this also work for setting the other person free? I was/am so in love and needy with someone who does not want me and I am sure this hurt him too.. I want to (energetically) ask for forgiveness and set him free.. will this work?

  3. Gabby, I heard you speak in Massachusetts yesterday. It was great to be inspired by yourself and many other people in the room. Your book came to me at the right and perfect time in my life.
    I have used this cord cutting in the past, and most recently to I have recognized what I truly want in my life through all of this. I can’t thank you enough for all the inspiration and guidance.
    I will continue to use the cord cutting over the next 30 days to be free of all that is weighing me down.

  4. Thank you for posting this Gabby. I just wanted to say that this powerful practice can really be felt by the people who are on the other end of the cord-cutting. They will also feel a sense of release and feel more loving and energized as a result. Coincidentally, I have also been doing a form of cord-cutting for about a month and I already see a big difference in the people to whom I have been energetically attached. I truly wish them well and want to mend any misunderstandings or any mistakes that I have made – sometimes it is difficult to know how to apologize appropriately even though you desperately want to.
    Thank you for your wonderful post.

  5. Thank you, Gabby!!! Perfect, Divine Timing…I am going to a cord cutting/full moon release event tonight and this just gave me a jump start!! xoxoxo

  6. I first tried this recently. I really was finally able to forgive after carrying around resentment for about two years. Thank you for pointing out that we would benefit by practicing this regularly.

  7. Gabby, I am feeling a calling to work with my angels…angels in general, and I really don’t know much about them. This vlog, and its visuals, were exactly what I needed and in the perfect, Divine timing. Blessings to you.
    ~ I love the light orb on the table to your right…I always notice it. Do you know where I might find one?

  8. That is so powerful Gabby, I can feel it just from what you’ve written, thankyou. Possibly the strongest meditation you’ve mentioned in a long time. Will practice with undeniable faith. Looking forward to the lightness!! . xx

  9. Gabby.

    This was an amazing advice, specially coming from a light worker like you.

    Even if we don’t do the meditation practice you just taught, the message behind the message was powerful. You were explaining energetically what is defined by codependency, psychologically speaking, which is a very draining phenomenon.

    Thank you for the amazing tools you bring to the world, specially when they come full of truth and love.

    Blessings to you always,


  10. I love this! Thank you! As an empath I am very sensitive to other people’s energt. I was woken up twice recently (out of the deepest sleep – scary!) by someone sending me very bad vibes. I invited Archangel Micahel in and instant peace. Thank you!

  11. Hi! Is this the same Cord Cutting Meditation that you have as a single on iTunes? I was about to buy this new one and realized I already had the iTunes one and LOVE it.

    I’m also curious about how you do it for 30 days. Do you cut cords with different people each day? Or is it the same person for 30 days?

    Thank you for this! It was perfectly timed, per usual. 🙂

  12. I have been doing this practice of cord cutting with Arch Angel Michael for as long as I can remember. I feel that it’s an important daily practice I invite in Arch Angel Michael and ask him to please cut cords to all people, places, and things that no longer serve my highest good
    Thank you for sharing you video dearest. Love and Light to you

  13. HI Gabby I”ve been doing cord cutting on a daily basis for 5 years now. It’s life changing. Been able to forgive people and heal relationships through this. Haven’t found anything stronger than this.

  14. I have been in a divorce process that has gragged on for what feels like ages! I have been married for 21 years and my husband cheated on me three years ago, we have been separated for two years and three months.
    I need to let go of him and this woman he’s with. We are slowly arriving g to a settlement out of court. And I need to cut cords with three properties that my family and I have shared for many years.
    I must detach from these places where my three children have grown up, where we’ve had great times and sad times together. I need strength and peace.
    Thank you so much for this meditation, it is just helping me so much!

  15. Hi Gabby. I have deep feelings for a guy who doesn’t want me.I have hurt him so I understand where he’s coming from but it’s a weighing feeling. I hate that he feels resentment towards me.I will practice this meditation and ask for help to let him go
    I love all ur advice. Ur an inspiration to me. Marianne in Ireland

  16. Hi, Gabby,
    I LOVE the cord cutting meditation! It’s so appropriate! When are you coming back to Chicago? I saw you there with your previous book. We want you back here. Happy Thanksgiving!

  17. Hi Gabby!
    I want to try this but I am still very new to the practice of Meditation. I’m wondering if it is realistic to practice a meditation like this even if you aren’t yet experienced with meditation. Thank you so much! xoxox

  18. I am on day 3, doing 30 days like you did. I bought and am using your guided Cord Cutting mediation. Should I use that one every day. I am still a newbie at meditating, but let me tell you, something happened the first time I did this on Dec 1. I was able to actually meditate so deeply that it felt like I was in a trance? I didn’t even hear the music end. When I came to, I had to immediately close my eyes and sleep. I actually set my alarm because I had to pick up kids at school in 8 minutes. But I had to sleep and I fell deep! And thank God the alarm was set because I was OUT. What is going on when that happens? I am so curious where was I in that state? And was is the power that is going on at that time? I do feel better, less emotionally attached. Thank you!

  19. Do you think that the person on the other end feels you leaving their space? (This other person may or may not actually want this – so that’s why I am asking) Essentially, will they feel the pulling away – and possibly pull you back?

  20. If lets say you dont feel that effect of cutting off person is complete yet, can you keep doing same meditation and keep cutting it until you feel its better?

  21. Hello Gabby! thank you once again for great video!
    Can this be used for situation when you love someone who may love you back but ‘not in that way’? I do not want to cut the cord completely, i.e. as long as I live i want to be there for this person with my purest love for them, but I also want to be loved and happy, & so I beg universe for guidance and help (as it hurts damn a lot… )

  22. This is so strange, when I was younger I used to cord cut through visualization when I felt like I was figuratively drowning in someone else’s energy. I had this strange sense that there were cords of energy between other people and myself and some of these cords would be causing me a lot of pain and negativity so I would visualize cords of different colors attached to other people and cut them. I had no idea what I was doing then but I’m excited to see it actually is a practice and I wasn’t being a silly child. This article alone has taught me to have more faith in myself, the universe is guiding us all with loving hands. Thank you Gabby. I needed a few more pushes to stop doubting and denying myself the spiritual journey I’ve been desperately screaming for inside. Fear has definitely been playing a heavy hand in my day to day life but I’m willing to change that.

  23. Thank you, Gabby, that´s exactly what I´ve been looking for!
    Funny though that I need to cut the cord that ties me to a not-so-angelic Michael… ;D

  24. Working with complex trauma and families who find themselves in distress, I find it extremely helpful to cut cords at the end of the day. It allows me to not take ‘stuff’ home with me. Both clients and I get to leave what’s been released behind- turning it all over to a Power greater than me.
