Rain drops on rope

Cutting the Ties that Bind

I frequently use this wonderful technique in work on Relationships.  It was created by psychotherapist and author Phyllis Krystal.


Unconditional love doesn’t create any ties, conditions or expectations from one person to the other.

Unfortunately love that is unconditional is a rarity. Many people carry the scars of an overprotected, over-controlled childhood.  Love was conditional upon pleasing their parents or guardians.

“Love” that’s like a Business exchange

Many people also suffer the negative effects of a relationship where again, “love” was given if they behaved in a certain way. In these instances, “love” is confused with need.  One person in the relationship, acting from their pain, will try to manipulate the other for their own selfish ends. Therefore constricting binds and conditions are imposed that stop people from living their own lives.  Conditions are set down to prevent them making their own decisions and finding their own destiny.

In these instances, there are energetic ropes like chords between the two people. Both people become bound and are prevented from moving forward with their lives. A psychic clairvoyant would literally “see” these chords!

Sever these constrictions by using the technique “Cutting the Ties that Bind”.  This dynamic and highly focused technique sets you free from these constrictions.  This gives more freedom and independence to both parties.

When this technique is used on both people in a deadlocked relationship, great results can emerge.  They are then able to move on and experience broader horizons and a greater autonomy in their lives.
