Spiritual Silver Cord
"An energetic or fluidic link that connects the perispirit to the physical body while the spirit is incarnated. It may stretch out to a considerable distance without breaking or damage, as in astral projection. The silver cord, also known as the luminous cord, or line of force, is severed only some time after physical death (minutes, hours or many days) -Divaldo Franco,1974."
(Definition of Perispirit: "Perispirit is a semi-material envelope, as opposed to the fully material envelope of the body. At death, the spirit sheds the body, but preserves the perispirit. The perispirit constitutes, then, an ethereal body that the spirit can render visible, or even tangible, as in the case of spirit sightings" Spirits' Book by Allan Kardec)
In the New International Version of the Bible- Ecclesiastes 12:6-7, it gives reference to the cord.
"Remember him—before the silver cord is severed, and the golden bowl is broken; before the pitcher is shattered at the spring, and the wheel broken at the well, and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it."
A woman, who had a lot of astral travel experiences, stated that she saw her silver cord while leaving the body. She described it as being long, sturdy and shining. She further stated, "Upon leaving my physical body, I looked back and this cable-like object was attached to my body and spirit. It gave me a sense of being safe or protected. The farther my spirit traveled, the longer my cord got. For some reason, I was not fearful that it would break."
The silver cord is what allows our incarnate spirits to travel to other celestial realms/worlds during sleep while still being attached to the physical body.
It is when the physical body dies that the cord is broken, allowing the spirit to move on freely to the spirit world and without any attachments.
Have you seen your silver cord? If so, please feel free to share your experiences. I would love to read them.
