I know you have seen the many web sites out there with someone offering to remove negative energy that is causing the problems in your life.
How do they say it works? You pay them huge amounts of money and they will do the work or a spell from their end.
How do you know they are actually doing anything but taking your money and sitting back waiting for it to hit their bank accounts?
While negative energy can cause you problems in your life, wouldn’t it make more sense for them to tell you how to remove the bad energy yourself and know it works?
Often during readings for my clients I do pick up on negative energy around them, I do not however, offer to remove it for them but instead give them the tools necessary to do their own work.
First is to know how that negative energy is coming into your life. Sometimes it’s our own thoughts and actions. Once you know this, you can begin to remove those thoughts and action from your daily life and move on to more positive aspects. To say you will never have negative thoughts or do something to bring about negative energy would be to say you would have to live in a fairy tale and we know that’s not healthy.
At some point and time, we all do or feel something negative, that’s part of being a human being, we can’t be happy, positive and only surround ourselves with the same. We can, however, learn to control it and how to remove the residual energy it leaves behind.
Second is the negative energy you get from other people. I’m sure we all know a person that only sees the glass half full, never seems to have a good day or anything good in their lives. The person who could get a million dollars and complain because they had to take it to the bank. They refuse to see anything good in their lives and only dwell on the bad things. Have you ever noticed after they leave your house or if you go to their house, the heaviness that seems to fill the air? That my friend is negative energy spilling over into your life.
In most cases, just changing your outlook and attitude can rid you of the bad energy. Try saying “I will” more and “I can’t” less. Try as we will, we cannot fix everything, but often it only takes making a few small changes. For me personally, I change or fix what I can and for the rest I send it out to the universe to handle. When I feel overwhelmed, I meditate or just find a place to sit quietly and be still.
One of the things I do when I feel the heavy air of negative energy is to clean my house from top to bottom with a citrus cleaner. Citrus is known to bring about good, high energy. Burning calming incense or candles help too. You could always throw a peppermint tea bag or some cinnamon sticks into a little boiling water to bring about a calming effect. I’m sure if you bake, you always notice how nice everything feels if you bake something with cinnamon as an ingredient.
If none of these things are working for me, I smudge my house with sage. Just to be clear, this is not the sage from your pantry, but white sage. You can buy the sage, either in bundles or loose, at your local spiritual store or many places on the internet.
This is part of my heritage, American Indian, but has been done for many centuries by different cultures. I have complete instructions on how to smudge your house on my web site, as a free download. Always be sure to smudge yourself too.
I hope this article has given you a little more knowledge about negative energy and how to avoid or remove it, but if you have any questions, I’d be happy to help you.
