We encounter a wide range of energies on a regular basis. We can acquire positive and negative energy by interacting with other people, touching an animal, object or other external sources. We also create our own energies by the way we act, speak and think.

You’ll feel happy, inspired and energized if the predominant energy is positive. But you’ll feel drained, exhausted and depressed if the predominant energy is negative.

How do we get rid of negative energy? Here are 4 ways to cleanse negative energy from your mind, body and your physical space.

Meditate

It is easy for the mind to fill up with unnecessary thoughts. If you allow negative thoughts like past hurts, judgmental thoughts, fear, worry and anxiety to overwhelm you, you are likely to suffer from depression and self-doubt. This can dampen your abilities, destroy your confidence and demean your value.

Clear your mind of negative energy by practicing meditation. Do this in a quiet space and make sure that there no disruptions. Have a positive intention when doing it.

Play music

Every Chinese New Year, the fireworks are set off continuously for 1 to 2 hours. The Chinese do this not only to add a jubilant atmosphere to the festival, but also to scare away evil spirits. Loud noises break up energy patterns and allow them to disperse.

Play some loud music, preferably uplifting music or happy songs. You may also dance to the music if you want to.  After doing this little exercise, your home will be rid of negative energy and you’ll feel happier as well; hence, creating a field of positivity within and around you.

Smudging ceremony

Smudging is a simple, yet powerful exercise that can help in keeping yourself balanced. This is especially beneficial for those who are around emotional people. You can also use this to remove negative energy from the area.

You can smudge to clean yourself if you are feeling down, stuck or have been exposed to negative or heavy energies. Sweetgrass is used to bring in positive energy; while sage is for purification.

Fresh air and sunlight

Believe it or not, one of the easiest ways of acquiring positive energy is by allowing fresh air and a little sunshine into your home. If weather permits, open the windows and stand near the window. Or better yet, go out for a walk. The intrinsic positive energy of nature will boost positivity and make you feel splendid.
