I published this article on cording some years ago; I have recently added bits and pieces and information on positive cords (Illumination Funiculus). Even if you have read this article before, you may want to read from the beginning including the new parts I have added about Illumination Funiculus.

Over the years, I have heard more and more misinformation on “cording.” Where did they even come up with the word “cord?” After a little research here and there, I found it originated with me, but it became polluted through the grapevine, causing misinformation to spread. Some even claimed they knew how to remove a cord even though they could not see it, nor did they know how it was attached.

In the last few months, I have received several letters asking me to please explain cords and cording, how and why it attaches, and how it affects the human body. I realized I had only shared some of this information with my advanced students at Life Energy Flow Tai Yi School of Healing when I taught them how to remove cords. It is now time to write on this subject, clearing misunderstandings and incorrect information beginning in 1981 and 1983.

In 1981 when I awakened from my deep sleep (coma) with amnesia from my near-death experience; I was able to see energy, not just energy, but also interior body parts, colors of organs, and the brain. In a way, it was natural for me, not knowing before my near-death experience, I did not have this ability. If you want to know more about this experience, read my book “Tide of Change.” Among the many different parts of the human bodies I could see, I would also see many with what appeared to be an umbilical cord, coming from other parts of their body. Some had just one; some had many. Some were thick and dark, and some were thin and light gray.

A couple of years later, in 1983, after I had begun my advanced learning from my Chinese Life Energy Flow Tai Yi Teacher, did I come to understand what these umbilical cords were. I didn’t particularly appreciate calling them umbilical cords, so I dropped the name umbilical and referred to them as cords. As usual, just before my next Life Energy Flow Tai Yi lesson, I would have an experience that set the stage for my learning. A friend invited me to go to lunch at my favorite restaurant in Tumwater, Washington. As we were sitting in the restaurant, a man and woman of middle age came in and were seated a few feet from our table. He had at least eight cords coming off his body. I saw some of them connected to non-physical people who traveled with him, but I also saw one of the cords connected to the woman with whom he was sitting. The non-physical people had many shadows around them, looking very depressed. These non-physical people took deep breaths, and I noticed they were deeply inhaling life energy through the cord from the man sitting a few feet from me. With each deep breath from the non-physical, he looked more and more depleted. He would then take a deep breath, and I could see energy moving into him from the woman he was attached to. My thoughts turned to my teacher; I must learn more about this in my next lesson.

A few days later, I was with my teacher, and as usual, he would start the conversation. This time he began with, “So you want to talk about Funiculus.”

“What!” I asked.

He laughed and said, “That is the correct name of what you have been seeing. I like your name “cord,” we shall use that name for our lessons.”

An Energy Funiculus or cord, which I have called and taught for many years, can be anywhere from a mild disturbance to a life-threatening condition. First, I will describe how they attach to the body. This is the part many have not understood, and through a lack of understanding, they have given incorrect information. A cord does not just connect to the body’s skin surface but instead has many tentacles anywhere from a few to a few dozen. These tentacles enter into the meridians of the bodies, of which some could be the physical, mental, or emotional body. (I am listing these three bodies, as they are the most common areas of attachment, but can and do attach to other bodies within the human energy system of which there are twelve). Imagine a needle placed in the blood vein on the back of the hand, as occurs in a hospital. This is very similar to the tentacles from the cord. The difference being, tentacles can travel a few inches to a few feet into the meridians. A complex or major cord can have many tentacles interfering with the gate system of the meridians. For those not familiar with meridian gates, a gate is like a valve, which opens and closes, allowing more or less energy to be sent to a different part of the body or bodies. (This is one of the fundamental teachings I teach to my students of Life Energy Flow Tai Yi School of Healing.) It is not my purpose to detail gates, just bringing attention to how these tentacles are attached.

I state this because some of the feedback I have received or seen on the Internet is from partial information I have taught and given over the years, and most of it is incorrect. One teaching I have seen is where one can take their hand and wipe the cord off the body. The cord is an energy cord; it does not just wipe off the body. What one might be seeing is the cord moving when a hand is wiped on the body’s area where it is attached, but the cord is not released as it is deeply attached into the meridians of the body or bodies. If an energy worker is not adequately educated about cords and tries this, it will often make the cord attach even deeper into the meridian walls. If the one doing the cording feels threatened, the cord will go into hiding. Meaning, the cord will appear on another part of the body giving the appearance it is attached elsewhere. An energy worker not knowing what is occurring will work on this false location, and the cord moves, giving the assumption that the cord has been removed when in fact, the cord has gone deeper into the body. When this occurs, the person with the cord or cords may experience more profound levels of pain and or exhaustion.

There is a Life Energy Flow Tai Yi treatment I taught to my advanced students using Universal Wave Energy. When used correctly and on the precise points, Universal Wave Energy varies according to the cord and can successfully remove these cords and their tentacles.

This is how cords attached and how it can be removed, but what about the why and who? What are the symptoms?

There can be many reasons why one is corded. You have something someone else wants. One example: what if one is addicted and abuses alcohol or drugs? A non-physical person, who died addicted to alcohol or drugs, cannot experience the same high in the non-physical. Many will cord someone physically to get high from one who is addicted to alcohol or drugs—the list of why can go on and on. If one died with deep anger and jealousy, they often feel powerless as many used this energy to control. They attach to one or more in the physical in an attempt to regain their desire for control. They usually do this to ones they knew in the physical, especially relatives. If one was abused as a child, the abuser could very well cord them. It matters not if the abuser is in the physical or non-physical. The cord’s attachment to the abused can continue the pain by encouraging self-abuse, as the abuser feeds off this energy. Pain attracts pain. To some souls trapped in the non-physical, pain is food. They will attempt to cord to one they know in this life or another life and feed off their pain. If there is not enough pain, then they will attempt to increase suffering in the physical person.

Cording can and does influence the brain and mind. I have seen many over the years in deep pain, unknowingly protecting their pain. It is interesting to watch but also saddens me as they hold so profoundly onto their pain. The person may attract a healer (therapist) who can truly assist them in healing. Many of these people may feel threatened by healing. Their brains and minds have formed a relationship with the pain, an unconscious relationship with the non-physical who is cording them. The reality is when they get close to healing, they flee from the healer (therapist). The non-physical will usually influence them to slander or hold great anger towards the healer so others who are corded will not go to them.

Can one remove a cord through therapy? Yes, they can. If one is corded because of abuse, past addictions, or any number of reasons, they can heal the cording. This is done by entirely releasing the issue that attracts the cord. One must stick with their healing and not run away from it, as they often want to do when the issue that attracted the cord is no longer there, the cord releases. Usually, it is much easier for a cord to be removed first, allowing for a much shorter healing period. Once the cord has been removed, one can see their issue, pain, and reason for suffering on a deeper level. If a person cannot work with an accredited Advanced Life Energy Flow Tai Yi practitioner to remove a cord, they can work on this with their therapist in healing the issue.

Cords do influence the mind, emotions, and one’s physical health. If you are concerned, you might be corded, ask yourself if you feel as if someone is persuading you to run away from your healing, or on the other hand, even encourage you to go to someone you know cannot assist you. Ask yourself if you have been delaying looking at or treating some ailment in your body.

A common question I receive is, “Can a cord, after being removed, return to the person they were attached to?” The answer is yes if the issue remains the same because they are in denial of what the issue may be that attracted the cord in the first place. Once the cord is removed, continuing your therapy and or counseling is recommended.

Years ago, in the early ’80s, I encountered a man who claimed he was the reincarnation of Jesus. He came to me for Tai Yi because of severe headaches. I asked him how long he had had the headaches. He replied, “Soon after, I discovered I was Jesus.” It did not come as a surprise as I could see a major cord attached to the back of his head, the same area he was complaining of headaches. The non-physical person corded to him believed he was Jesus and was promoting that belief through this person to feed off the ego. Also, the non-physical person not only believed he was Jesus; he believed he would become the next pope. After talking to this person, before I removed the cord, I found he was raised in the Catholic Church but had been expelled from the church for reasons he would not give. I removed the cord, and the headaches stopped. With therapy, he developed his own self-esteem, where he was able to love and accept himself. In almost 40 years, I have encountered over 30 claiming to be Jesus, 24 claiming to be Mary, all the apostles at least three times each, except John I encountered nine times. I am not sure why he is so popular. After Jonah’s message in 1985, “A Man Called Jesus,” reached national news in the United States, Jesus’ wife became very popular. I have not yet met ones who claim to be Mohammad, perhaps because you can be beheaded if it is believed you are insulting Mohammad. It does make one wonder why Jesus and Mary are so popular to impersonate.

Cords also exist from a physical person to a physical person, as I first mentioned in this article. This is done for control, or a person may have what another wants. Perhaps if one has money and likes to show it off, it will attract a cord from those who want the money. They can even influence the one with money to give it to the one doing the cording. The same can occur with relationships, where one will cord the other to control the relationship and or its outcome. There can be a thousand reasons why.

Perhaps back in 1983, when I was first taught about Funiculus (cords), I should have written a book detailing all the different aspects. Although I did not think my word for this would become so widely used or misused among New Age people at that time. I hope I cleared up some of the misinformation on this subject. I could fill a book on all the cording cases I have worked on over the last 39 years and many strange experiences that have occurred before and after removal. Before I end, one thing I do want to address is a positive cord. Its correct name is Illumination Funiculus. I merely want to say they do occur. My concern with sharing this information is that some will want to use this as an excuse for not dealing with perhaps a sinister cord attached. Illumination Funiculus is attached differently and is rare, in fact, very rare, maybe 1 in 10,000 cords.

In the ’80s, I would educate people who came to me for Tai Yi treatments about cords and how and why they occur. I continued teaching about cords in the ’90s when I founded the Life Energy Flow Tai Yi School of Healing. When the Internet came along in the early ’90s, I would often use Google to type in words cords and cording, to find nothing popping up. After I began talking more and writing about cords in the Jonah Newsletters, it seemed like articles on cording and removing cords started popping up like popcorn, anywhere from burning, freezing, to cutting them off. Indeed, one is free to express their beliefs, and each is free to accept those beliefs. Still, when certain beliefs cause injury to the unaware, those who are educated in such matters need to speak up to understand energy and how energy works. An analogy I was given many years ago. You are driving on a cold winter day, and you are preparing to cross a long narrow bridge covered in black ice. A sign in front of the bridge states, “Caution black ice drive slowly,” next to that sign is another sign, “Drive fast and speed to the other side to get past the danger.” It is up to you which sign to observe. Hopefully, one has been educated about black ice to make a wise choice. Well, enough of that, all I can do is continue teaching about Funiculus (cords) as I have for the last 37 years.

Now back to Illumination Funiculus. This occurs from an agreement before birth for a particular purpose in life. As I was writing this, I received a question asking about a teaching they heard from a channel. The teaching states parents should cord their children to protect them or keep an eye on them. Is this true? How loud can I say this? NO! It is not true. Not only does this person not know what they are talking about, but they are also giving harmful misinformation about cords. Any parent who cords their children does so to control and manipulate their children. Parents with a deep loving bond with their children will have a deeper spiritual connection that brings awareness from parent to child and child to parent. 

After re-reading my article above, I decided to continue this article to include Illumination Funiculus. I will refer to Illumination Funiculus as a positive cord.

First, I want to caution one jumping to the conclusion they have a positive cord when it is much more likely they have a negative sinister cord. A negative sinister cord can and does manipulate the brain and mind to whatever degree it needs for self-preservation. 

As I wrote earlier, this occurs from an agreement before birth for a particular purpose in life. All positive cords are only attached to bodies eight through twelve. A positive cord is never attached to the lower seven bodies, except for one exception below. One of the most distinctive teachings of Life Energy Flow Tai Yi is the teaching each person has twelve bodies, not just seven. However, I have taught about the seven bodies because they are critically important to understand, especially for my Tai Yi students. Beyond learning of the seven bodies, a Tai Yi student will learn about bodies eight through twelve, as Tai Yi treatments work with all twelve bodies.

If one could see energy through a powerful microscope, you would know the difference between a negative cord and a positive cord. With the negative cord, you would see its tentacles attached deep into the meridians with hooks firmly attached to the meridians’ walls in one or more of the lower bodies, both taking and sending energy from the source of which the cord is originating. This type of cord is usually light to dark gray, will often cause much distress, depression, anger, ill health, or send thoughts and desires to form or keep an addiction. 

The positive cord is also inserted in the meridians, but only in the higher bodies. This cord does not have hooks; therefore, it is not attached to the meridian walls; it does not take energy and only offers energy to fulfill the agreement from before birth. This positive cord is usually gold to azure in color. It could come from a higher aspect of yourself or another soul who has agreed to assist you directly for whatever purpose you came to fulfill. Illumination Funiculus is usually associated with assisting humanity.

The one exception when a positive cord is attached to the lower bodies, usually the physical body is facing imminent death in a matter of hours or days. For whatever reason, the soul is seeking to prolong the physical body’s life to complete something, perhaps wanting to talk to a person or persons or to resolve some issue they feel a need to resolve. In this case, a higher being connected to the one dying will insert a positive cord into the physical meridians of the body to send a short burst of energy to prolong the physical body for a matter of days or hours, certainly not longer than this.

Until next time, whatever you do, do it in the light, and the light will be your guide.
