Aka Cords are the thin vital force threads of energy we send out of our body as we think about anything or anybody.  Aka is a Hawaiian word for vital energy.  These cords are everywhere and connect people and things. From my study, the ancient Hawaiians provide the most information on these.

When I first came upon the meaning of “stickiness,” part of the root (pili) meaning of unihipili, the  kahuna word for the subconscious spirit, I could make nothing of it. But, when I had associated the shadowy body or aka with the subconscious spirit, and had considered the several root meanings of aka, I discovered that the thing that was “sticky”, was the shadowy body. It sticks to anything we contact or see (even to things we contact by hearing, I am inclined to believe). It is like touching fly-paper with a finger and, when the finger is pulled away, a long fine thread of the adhesive substance is drawn out.

Absurd as this may sound at first telling, that is exactly the way the kahunas found the shadowy body of the subconscious worked.
The idea of an aka thread or cord is closely related to the idea of a flow of mana or vital force. The root ‘lea’ means a cord, and also means a vine which branches out. The vine is the symbol of mana, as is water.” … from The Secret Behind the Miracles by Max Freedom Long

I wish to expand how they work so to continue to build a foundation of how we can understand and use our own energy efficiently and how to sort out what we do and do not want when it comes to other energies interacting with us.

As Serge King coined the Huna phrase “Energy flows where attention goes” that perfectly captures these tiny energy threads that move about.

Energy Cords Move Quick as Lightening

As we” begin to think”, aka cords are already created in a nano-second. 

If we think about Joe’s coffee shop, the aka cords will go to Joe’s coffee shop and be there before we even step toward it. If we think of Joe and his amazing smile, the aka cord is now touching Joe, or even entering his body!

This is the connection we feel from others when they are thinking about us, if we are perceptive enough. This is also how we know when someone is going to call us on the phone moments before it rings. Our connections make it easy.

Our energy always proceeds us!

When we are with our lover, we anchor aka cords in to the sacral energy center and depending upon how we relate to this person we will anchor in to more or all of their energy centers. This is just what we naturally do and we do not think about it; it is how our personal energy works.

When we break up from the lover, we will still feel him/her when they have thoughts about us and it is through the aka cords. We may have walked away but the energy streamers are still in place until we move them out.

These connections deepen our connections to others in very real ways.

Sexual Cheating is Known Instantly

Sensa Norma told me when a married person cheats (has sex outside marriage) the whole family knows this deception immediate and is crying inside for this breach.  It is through the aka cords that we have with all of our family that this energy information is distributed. They know instantly, although it may not be consciously. The feeling something is off.

Aka cords are a communication pathway; you may dream or think about them when they think of you. It does not help a person to be connected to former relations, if it is not someone you wish to keep close. It will also make your significant other feel uncomfortable as they do not know what it is, but might feel this ‘energetic presence’ that makes them feel uneasy. They may think you are having an affair when you are not.

Working consciously with aka cords will help you. Learn about the major chakras, energy center that are working through our body. Most of the time aka cords are placed through these portals in the front and back of our physical body, and other times just in the energy fields.

Managing Our Energy

When we suspect or know about having these vital energy thread connections and we no longer wish to have them, just push them out and away, intending them to return to their owner. Visualize them being pushed out, with energy, your breath, or any creative thoughts that help it feel real to you. Check again for the connection and repeat only if you need to. Watch your thoughts and try not to reconnect through thinking about those who you do not wish to be ‘attached’ to.

As you become aware of the energy bodies and energy centers that move through us, you can begin to manage your own energy and how it can work.

Our energy fields and centers are always in motion. Our mind and actions always in motion so it is easy to have cords come and go. When you think too often of someone that you do not wish to think about, that bothers you, then it is time to push them out. Even if you do not know where, you can just intend a total body clearing of cords from a specific person and push them out. You can also refuse to have such threads connect again, but the trick is, that you will place cords when you start thinking of them for a short time.

Aka cords can drain energy and often do as we learn as a child to ‘drink’ in from our elders. Having aka cords with our children can also be of great help to us, as we know when they need us or are in trouble.

Aka cords are neutral energy that someone has placed some intent in to it changing it to that flavor. So watch your relations and be kind. Kindness and love are the best intentions.

Practicing Aka Cord Maintenance

Unplugging Aka Cords

Aka is a Hawaiian word for vital force.  Aka is the energy substance which surrounds us and connects us to each other it is how information and mana (the life force and energy)  travel. All contact whether in the physical or on another level involves  the exchange of  threads of aka material or energy. Ongoing relationship will build  cords, energy and information is exchanged along these cords and connections. where the cords are locked in has a lot to do with the quality of the relationship.
