I would classify as invasive any chakra cord that seeks to override or co-opt the life force of another; it is a direct theft of prana, and the loss of adult freedom of choice. While there are multiple influences upon the development of our everyday personality when we have been energetically invaded by another (or even by a group consciousness) we are being unknowingly dominated by the other. The creative power of the human mind is such that the wiring of energetic connection can be used in relationally predatory ways that are detrimental to our well being, and to our personal and spiritual development.
Three common symptoms of invasive chakra cord are numbing, habitual usage (resignation), and the active denial of a truth.
1. Numbing: When an invasive cord attaches to the head of the chakra it resembles a fish hook or a cord with suckers at its terminus. Like the insect bite it resembles this cord will numb the chakra, thereby restricting its natural functioning. As an example, with an invasive cord in Swadhisthana (Second) Chakra an individual will experience reduced tactile feeling in their animal (sensual) body, as well as possible immune system compromises.
2. Habitual Usage (Resignation): Some invasive cords have been with an individual most of their lives, possible put in place by a parent or other caretaker. The invasion effects (energy drain, lack of freedom or personal development experienced in adulthood) are now considered inevitable or karmic by that person: the individual simply cannot imaging a life without being controlled, or drained.
3. Active Denial: One of the major hurdles in personal development work is the psycho-emotional structures that support denial in our lives. The truth of our situation can be clearly seen by another who is outside of any denial system, but those within the system will actively work to refuse to acknowledge what is really going on. Invasive cords that support denial are often group (shared identity) cords; everyone in the family or group agrees to agree on the same view of reality. This type of networked cord system commonly supports political propaganda, for instance, or efforts that are designed to keep our attention from wandering where it really should go; to the discovery of an important truth.
Removing invasive chakra cords should bring significant results into an individuals life, usually in the form of increased energy, more awareness about the life issue the cord represents, and individual freedom of choice. It is also essential for spiritual development of all kinds, as we must be free to grow in our own direction and not be induced to support the agenda of others. Once the cord is removed the chakra will begin the return to its natural and healthy state, slowly improving the mental and emotional lives of the former victim. They will resume their spiritual evolution, now unfettered by the outside influence.
Invasive cords are those that most energy healers will intuitively attempt to “cut”. But my preference is to remove the invasive cord at its terminus, rather than attempt to traumatize the energy body even further with “cutting” techniques. After cord removal an individual will have much more prana available for their energy system, which is now available for satisfying life pursuits, relationships, or personal and spiritual evolution.
