Do you want to banish negative energy and stress from your life? First, you have to remove negative energy from your home. Here are 10 ways you can do just that.
Our homes are an extension of ourselves — for better or worse.
A beautiful space can bring you great joy, but if your home feels like it’s full of bad vibes, then it’s time to banish that negative energy once and for all.
Here are 10 simple ways to remove negative energy from your home — and your mind:
1. Remove clutter as soon as possible
Yes, there’s a reason you feel so good after you clear off your counter.
Energy remains in objects, especially older objects. And depending on the energy type, they may physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually block our path forward.
When you hold onto unwanted “stuff,” there is no room for new opportunities to come into your life. So try to make sure that everything you own brings you joy. If it doesn’t… pass it on.
2. Carefully burn some incense
This fragrant smoke has long been a spiritual and meditation practice used to restore life to a dull space. Bonus, it smells delicious, too.
Incense helps elevate energy as its properties create a calm and serene atmosphere. It is best used in a clean home for meditation.
3. Let in a breeze
The first step to moving negative air out of your home involves nature. Open up all your windows, or at least the ones that allow for optimal air to come through. Fresh air helps to move and “air out” any negative energy.
Stagnant energy can be suffocating, so be sure to get the fresh air flowing (and shake out your sheets and pillows, too).
4. Cleanse antiques of negative energy
Antiques are beautiful objects — but they come with their own energetic histories.
To make sure you don’t take on the heavy energy of an antique’s past owner, each item should be individually cleared of negative energy.
Wash items well, maintain them carefully, and give them a new lease on life — so you can enjoy the full extent of their beauty.
5. Remove or repair things that are broken
Keeping broken items in your house is bad feng shui, and sets the tone for what you will accept and tolerate in your own life.
Broken objects retain negative energy. If an object is irreparable, then it serves no purpose but to exude that it is in a “stuck” or negative state. Instead, look after, clean, and maintain existing, working household items — clothing, plants, furniture — and see the difference it makes to your mood.
6. Smudge your entire home with sage
A popular Native American technique for removing bad energy is lighting sage, then blowing out the flame. The smoke of the burning sage cleanse the air and remove impurities — both literal and metaphorical.
You should always start at the front door and work around the rooms in a clockwise direction.
After “smudging” the entire home, visualize your intentions for your home as the smoke fills every crevice.
7. Protect your space with crystals
Different crystals hold different energies, and certain crystals are perfect for fending off negative energy.
Black Tourmaline is known to ward off and dissolve negative energy, while Rose Quartz replaces negative emotions and feelings with positive ones.
Try putting these crystals next to electronic appliances to equalize the energy balance. Make sure to cleanse your crystals from time to time of the energy they gather.
8. Spray orange essential oil around your home
This fresh citrus scent will revitalize your home and your senses, clear negative energy, and uplift your mood.
Just add a couple drops into water or use it as an organic essential oil spray.
A quick spritz of orange essential oil will help breathe life into previously heavy areas in your home.
9. Rearrange furniture
Change can be hard — but it doesn’t need to be daunting! A good way to freshen up your space is to simply play around with the arrangement of your furniture.
This could be as simple as switching the layout of two armchairs, or it could involve redoing a whole room. Either way, experimenting with rearranging furniture each month will help to give life to your home — and it doesn’t cost a cent.
10. Ring a bell in your room
Audio cues from just one ring of a bell in each corner of the rooms and doorways helps to revive your physical space.
Use the tone of the bell to focus on getting rid of negative energy — and attracting abundant energy instead.
