How do we get rid of negative energy?
Energy is everywhere.
You can’t see it, but you can feel it. If you’ve ever instantly disliked someone without knowing why – or on the flip side, instantly connected with them – it’s because of the ‘vibe’ that you are both radiating.
Some people give off negative vibes, and others positive.
What’s important is that we are naturally attracted to people who give off a similar vibe to ourselves – that’s why, if you’re in a negative state, you may feel attracted to people who are also negative, and dislike or be repelled by people who are vibrating more positively.
Your home and your workplace are powerful concentrations of your energy because of the amount of time you spend there. The thoughts you think, the words you say, and the actions you take are very strong in your home.
It’s important to clear out negative energy in these physical spaces, as well as any negative energy that’s stuck within you, so you can start an upward trend in your life.
So, how do we get rid of negative energy in the body and home?

How Do You Release Bad Energy?
So, we’ve cleansed our bodies. Now it’s time to clean the home.
Clearing the bad energy from your home isn’t too tough. Here are 10 easy ways to get rid of negative energy in your living space.
1. Clean up!
Every time you get rid of clutter, dirt and dust, or organize your belongings, you are restoring order.
Think about it – a clean, orderly space feels light and bright – lightness and brightness are very high-vibrating energies! Your home and workplace are not only concentrations of your energy, but they are reflections of your inner state.
2. Clap your hands, or make loud noises with pots and pans
Walk through every space of your home, and clap loudly to break up negative energy patterns and allow them to disperse.
Have you ever noticed how light and fresh everything seems after a thunderstorm?
3. Meditate on love
Love is the highest vibration, and you can infuse yourself and your living and work spaces with a loving meditation where you focus on radiating love to everyone you know. This is one of the best, most powerful ways to get rid of negative energy fast.
4. Rearrange the space
Move furniture around – it’s the same concept as the loud noises – and rearrange your furniture and belongings so that there is as much free, open space as possible.
5. Smile and laugh
Laughter is the best medicine for a reason! Smiling and laughing cause physiological changes to take place in the body. You can’t help but improve your mood (vibration) by smiling!
6. Use a small bowl of sea salt in the northeast and southwest corners of your home
This Feng Shui practice helps balanced chi (energy) to flow through your home.
7. Open windows to let the energy flow freely
(Unless you live somewhere that is heavily polluted.)
Spend as much time as you can outdoors, feeling the vast expanse of the world and the universe. Set your intention for negative energies to leave you and “hand them over” to the universe; it’s infinite, and can easily “absorb” anything you put out there!
8. Add living plants to your spaces
And again, spend as much time as you can outdoors. Remove dead or dying plants immediately, though – and be careful with this technique if you have a “black thumb.”
9. Avoid negative people
These complainers, drama queens, energy vampires and downers just drag you down. Keep a wary distance from these individuals.
10. Don’t hang onto emotions
Ride out the emotion; while you’re feeling the negative emotion, say to yourself, “I feel (sad, angry, whatever)” but never say, “I AM (sad, angry, etc.).”
You can let go of feelings, but you can’t let go of yourself.
Don’t be the negative energy. Release it as it comes.
