6 Quick Ways To Remove Negative Energy Around You

6 Quick Ways To Remove Negative Energy Around You

Have you had the feeling lately that something is off? Are you lacking in positivity? Or do you maybe feel that there is some sort of negative ‘presence’ lingering around?

Negative energy can begin to permeate your entire life. Removing that energy from your life is one of the best things you can ever do for yourself. Sometimes it can be hard to pinpoint where the problem is, or even that there is a problem. Sometimes the energy is palpable, sometimes it just hangs around. The first step is recognising that it is there, then you can continue to find out how can you rid yourself, and your home, of these negative vibes.

1. Smudging

The ancient American practise of smudging was used as a purification ceremony for certain spaces. Sacred herbs were used to help clear the negative energy from a room or space. The burning of these certain herbs, such as Sage, is not only considered a spiritual practise, but a scientific one too. The herbs are said to release negative ions, the oxygen atoms that are charged by electrons. Negatively charged Ions are created effectively in nature by water, air, and sunlight. This is what makes us feel calm and re-energised when we are in nature and breathing fresh air. It is your body being awash with negative ions.

2. Talking To Yourself

In other words: ‘Positive affirmations”. When we think positive, we are attracting positive energy. And in turn, we are expelling negative energy. Our brains work in the way that they become used to thoughts. The brain will mould itself so that similar thoughts, or a thought that is occurring frequently, can come faster and faster. This is called a thought pattern.

This is why we should train our brains to think positive, and also what will convert positive thought into positive energy. That way, we are reaping what we sow. So talk to yourself! Mutter away. Just keep it positive.

3. Meditating

Studies through recent decades have shown us that the brain is in fact, quite malleable. We no longer accept that what we are born with is what we’ve got. The brain can change – and it can change a lot.

Meditating, particularly meditation concentrating on mindfulness, allows us to exist in the moment. We can practice being slow and to recognise our present state and become peaceful with it. We are not letting our minds exist in the past or the future that is yet to happen. In other words, we are not worrying, and we are not connecting that worry to the negative energy surrounding it. We become slow and peaceful. Mindfulness takes practice, but it will change your life.

4. Singing

Singers live longer! Everybody knows that. Singing is great for mental health, for feeling good about yourself. It improves cognition, can lower your blood pressure, it develops your lung power and your posture and basically gives you more general positive energy. This, we all know, beats off negative energy. Singing attracts positivity, and you can do it anywhere you like.

5. Walking In Nature

Returning the concept of negative ions, one quick and easy way to remove negative energy from your surroundings is by getting out and greeting Mother Earth. There are a plethora of health benefits that are instantaneous, the greatest being a decrease in stress. We feel refreshed and restored after walking with trees and other natural elements full of oxygen atoms, and we are more capable of facing the tougher parts of life that may seem overwhelming when negative energy is also hanging around. The same also goes for …

6. Being By The Sea

Science has shown the attributes that come from simply being around water. It induces a calm and meditative state, allows us a feeling of cool cleansing, and is very rich in negative ions. Even a lake or a river can be beneficial, but there is just something extra special about the vastness of the ocean. So if you get the chance – visit the seaside. Your mind and body will thank you.

But sometimes, certain situations arise in life that makes it hard to keep a positive outlook. Take steps to make positive thinking become more like your second nature and you’ll reap the biggest benefits.

Here are 10 ways to make thinking positive thoughts easy:

1. Spend Time with Positive People

If you surround yourself with constant complainers, their negativity is likely to rub off on you.

Spend time with positive friends and family members to increase the likelihood that their positive thinking habits will become yours too. It’s hard to be negative when everyone around you is so positive.

2. Take Responsibility for Your Behavior

When you encounter problems and difficulties in life, don’t play the role of the victim. Acknowledge your role in the situation and take responsibility for your behavior.

Accepting responsibility can help you learn from mistakes and prevent you from blaming others unfairly.

3. Contribute to the Community

One of the best ways to feel good about what you have, is to focus on what you have to give.

Volunteer in some manner and give back to the community. Helping others can give you a new outlook on the world and can assist you with positive thinking.

4. Read Positive and Inspirational Materials

Spend time each day reading something that encourages positive thinking. Read the Bible, spiritual material, or inspirational quotes to help you focus on what’s important to you in life. It can be a great way to start and end your day.

Some recommendations for you:

5. Recognize and Replace Negative Thoughts

You won’t be successful at positive thinking if you’re still plagued by frequent negative thoughts. Learn to recognize and replace thoughts that are overly negative. Often, thoughts that include words like “always” and “never” signal that they aren’t true.

If you find yourself thinking something such as, “I always mess everything up,” replace it with something more realistic such as, “Sometimes I make mistakes but I learn from them.”

There’s no need to make your thoughts unrealistically positive, but instead, make them more realistic.

6. Establish and Work Toward Goals

It’s easier to be positive about problems and setbacks when you have goals that you’re working toward. Goals will give you motivation to overcome those obstacles when you encounter problems along the way. Without clear goals, it’s harder to make decisions and gauge your progress.

Learn to set SMART goals to help you achieve more.

7. Consider the Consequences of Negativity

Spend some time thinking about the consequences of negative thinking. Often, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

For example, a person who thinks, “I probably won’t get this job interview,” may put less effort into the interview. As a result, he may decrease his chances of getting the job.

Create a list of all the ways negative thinking impacts your life. It likely influences your behavior, your relationships, and your feelings. Then, create a list of the ways in which positive thinking could be beneficial.

8. Offer Compliments to Others

Look for reasons to compliment others. Be genuine in your praise and compliments, but offer it frequently. This will help you look for the good in other people.

9. Create a Daily Gratitude List

Getting in the habit of showing an attitude of gratitude makes positive thinking more of a habit. Here’re 40 Simple Ways To Practice Gratitude.

10. Practice Self-Care

Take good care of yourself and you’ll be more equipped to think positively.

Get plenty of rest and exercise and practice managing your stress well. Taking care of your physical and mental health will provide you with more energy to focus on positive thinking.
