Why you can’t let go of your ex

You may be on board with this idea or maybe not, but it’s wise to consider the possibility that you may be unable to let go of your ex because there is a spiritual bond between you two.

It could very well be that your ex is your soul mate, twin flame, or that the universe has put you together for reason.

Now, I know this sounds kind of crazy, especially if you’re still dealing with a broken heart, but if you want to see crystal clear signs that you and your ex could or could not be meant to be together, you’d be best served to get your free numerology reading.

The numbers hidden in your name and birth date hold secret keys to your destiny and the divine plan set in stone on the exact date and time you came to this Earth.

If you’ve been experiencing issues in your romantic life, much of the time the answers to your most pressing problems will be found once you consider your sacred numerology report.

Most people have no clue about this ancient wisdom, yet it’s the one thing that could set them free.

So yes, the first step to learning how to spiritually let go of your ex is to see if there is a deeper reason for your feeling attached to them in the first place.

Once you understand any reasons for your heart connection, you’ll be better equipped for dealing with it going forward.

And you’ll be more successful in your efforts.

Spiritually release your ex through manifestation

Once you’ve determined that you’re ready to spiritually release your ex from your life, you might consider working with one or more manifestation oils.

I recommend Art of the Root’s “Heal My Heart” manifestation oil because it’s made with the most powerful herbs for helping you release painful emotional baggage.

Along with Rosemary and Lavender, it features Black Walnut, Helichrysum, Blessed Thistle, and other related medicinal plants that have been used for centuries in spiritual work to break up soul ties between lovers as well as remove negative attachments.

Manifestation oils are always a good idea to help assist you with achieving your desires, whether that’s drawing something into your life — or releasing it.

There are many ways you can use this manifestation oil to spiritually release your ex, but one of the most effective ways is to combine it with the pillow method.

For this, all you have to do is write a positive affirmation about how you lovingly release bonds and ties to your ex.

Anoint the paper with the manifestation oil, then place the paper underneath your pillow at night for eight days or until you start to feel better.

Keep it simple and easy and light.

You don’t always need a heavy ritual for good results.

Energy clearing ritual

The next way you could work on spiritually releasing your ex from your life is to perform an energy clearing ritual.

This one is so simple and easy to do, and you can use it to release any negative or heavy energy binding you to your ex.


Here’s the 7-step process to follow:

  • Get rid of all their old stuff
  • Delete old texts, emails, photos, and other mementos
  • Unfollow them on social media and block them from contacting you
  • Declutter and organize your space
  • Light a white candle, burn some sage or palo santo and ask your ancestors or the universe to assist you in spiritually releasing your ex from your life
  • Take a bath or shower to physically cleanse your body
  • Express gratitude for the work being complete


Cord-cutting meditation

Next, you must realize that when you bond with someone as in a relationship, you have built a metaphysical “cord” of energy connecting you together. 

This cord is built on shared experiences, mutual affection, and a spiritual bond that, of course, strengthens over time. 

When you break up, even though you’re no longer physically together, the energetic cord binding you together still exists.

That’s one reason why it can be so hard to spiritually release your ex. 

You can find healing and release with a cord-cutting meditation or ritual. 

Simply set aside some time where you won’t be disturbed, take a few deep breaths, and set the intention to release these negative emotions.

Then, do a cord-cutting meditation.

Here’s an example of a free one to try


Full moon spell for letting go

Another excellent idea for you to cut ties and spiritually release your ex is a full moon spell.

The full moon is the perfect time to set intentions for what you want to release from your life.

The basic idea behind this is that you start with a full moon, then as the moon shrinks, you release what is no longer serving you.

To perform this ritual, light a white candle and welcome healing, positive energy from the Universe and the divine.

Grab a piece of paper and write a brief note of what you’d like to release, and what you want to welcome instead.

For example, “I lovingly release the bond shared between my ex and I, and welcome fresh energy and hope for new love in the future.”

Burn the paper in the flame, and repeat a mantra to confirm your desire as it burns.

“I release what no longer serves me and welcome what is for me.”

Let the candle burn until it’s all the way gone to close the ritual.

For even better results, anoint the candle with Heal My Heart manifestation oil. 


Self-love spell to release your ex

Finally, a big part of why we hold on to our exes is because we need more self-love in our lives.

I have created a self-love spell that can help you welcome gentle self-appreciation into your life and that will help you sever those toxic bonds that hold you back.

I will give a brief description of the ritual below, but for best results check out the full post, here:


What You’ll Need For This Self-Love Manifesting Ritual:


First, you’ll want to take a shower to physically cleanse your body, then set your sacred space and ambiance with the Tarot or Oracle card that represents your intention, light incense, and place your rose quartz crystal nearby.

Spend a minute or two connecting with your breath to get fully relaxed, and create an image in your mind’s eye of how you want to look, feel and show up in your life.

Focus on all the beautiful things about yourself and how you want to be!

Get deep into this visualization because it will set the stage for what you welcome into your life going forward.

Once you have a clear picture in your mind’s eye of who you want to be, write a scripting letter to the Universe about the deep, intense love you have for yourself and how this radiates outward.

Write straight from a full heart and open mind, sign it with your signature, then store it in a safe place.

Finally, express gratitude to the Universe for your wish and dream coming true to close out the ritual.


Final thoughts on spiritually releasing an ex

The spiritual release of an ex is a deep, loving, and freeing practice that can help you move forward in your life.

Especially if it’s been quite some time and you’re still struggling with feelings of being held back.

Whether it’s severing the negative energetic cord between you or strengthening self-love in your life, make sure to treat yourself with gentle care during this process.

Oh, and by the way, please don’t forget to get your free numerology reading if you haven’t done so already.

Many people miss this critical step and make things harder than they need to be.

It very well could be that your ex is just part of your divine plan, or that you have lessons to learn before you move to the next phase.

Without opening your heart and mind to this possibility, you could be missing out on critical information that will help you move forward.
