Keep your cords where they aren’t visible, so that they aren’t used for other purposes. If you wish to weave, braid or spin your own cord, that’s good. They get more powerful that way. Anything you make with your own hands, you can dedicate to your needs during the process of making them. Braiding is in itself a magic act. In many cultures, string is seen as a spiritual road. Strings have been used to travel, capture and confuse. But also as a medium for energy to move through.
