Buying a new house? Have an office that just feels yucky? Just have a hard week and you can still feel it in your home? Negative energy can linger anywhere – curtains, clothes, and people. Here are my favorite tips for clearin’ out that crappy feeling from whatever it is. Some of these apply only to spaces, but others you can use to clear your own energy too.
1. Go Green!
Plants are an awesome natural filter for negative energy. Make sure each space or room you spend time in has at least one. I sleep with one on my nightstand by my bed and it makes a big difference for me. Opening the windows and allowing sunlight in is another natural cleanser.
2. Claim the Space
If your space feels full of someone else’s “stuff,” walk around and claim it as yours. “I take back this space. I choose to make this a positive place for me now! I love changing the energy of this space.” When you “install” this positive energy, all the negative energy that’s hanging around will no longer be a match (thank you Law of Attraction for that one).
Simply sprinkle salt (a small grain type) on the carpet. After about an hour, vacuum. Salt crystals have an amazing natural built in-ability to absorb negative energy. As an alternative, you can put bowls of salt in the corners of the room and remove after a few hours.
*this works for people too. Instead of sprinkling yourself with salt, take a bath with 2 cups of sea salt in it. It’s grounding and clearing all at the same time.
4. Burn White Sage
You can buy white sage smudge sticks in many places, including online. Burning this while you walk around your house with it (swirling it in a counterclockwise rotation) is really great for clearing bad ju ju. I usually say something as I do it like “I’m clearing all stagnant energy from this space and allowing only that of the highest vibration to remain.”
*this works for people too. Start at your feet swirling the smoke from the sage around you until you get all the way up to your head.
5. Room spray
Buying or making a room spray with pure essential oils helps clear negative energy. The best ones to use for clearing are: rose, lavender, frankincense, and patchouli.
*this works for people too. Gently mist yourself with the spray!
6. High Frequency Music
Playing high vibration music can make a big difference. We already know what a difference music can make in our own energy, and it does the same for spaces. Here is one recommendation, but I’m sure you’ll find your own favorites too:
7. Black Tourmaline
This is my favorite crystal for clearing negative energy. I have several of them around my house. This crystal does not need to be cleared as others do. I buy mine from Healingcrystals.org (great company and reasonably priced!)
*this works for people too. I often put it in my pocket or purse while traveling. It’s great for sensitive people who seem to pick up on the energy around them and need some extra protection.
I hope this has given you a good start to clear your space! Do you have something that works for you? I’d love to hear.
An Important Note
I get lots and lots of emails about this post. It’s important to understand that YOU have more to do with your environment than anything else. While clearing negative energy can be hugely helpful, you still must take responsibility for your own thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, health, and relationships. Energy in a house can be a factor in our wellbeing, but it should not be blamed for destroying relationships, “making” you be a certain way, getting you sick, and more. Wellbeing is about changing YOUR energy, too :)
