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.

7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

What do I want to do with my life? It’s a question all of us think about at one point or another.

For some, the answer comes easily. For others, it takes a lifetime to figure out.

It’s easy to just go through the motions and continue to do what’s comfortable and familiar. But for those of you who seek fulfillment, who want to do more, these questions will help you paint a clearer picture of what you want to do with your life.

1. What are the things I’m most passionate about?

The first step to living a more fulfilling life is to think about the things that you’re passionate about.

What do you love? What fulfills you? What “work” do you do that doesn’t feel like work? Maybe you enjoy writing, maybe you love working with animals or maybe you have a knack for photography.

The point is, figure out what you love doing, then do more of it.

2. What are my greatest accomplishments in life so far?

Think about your past experiences and the things in your life you’re most proud of.

How did those accomplishments make you feel? Pretty darn good, right? So why not try and emulate those experiences and feelings?

If you ran a marathon once and loved the feeling you had afterwards, start training for another one. If your child grew up to be a star athlete or musician because of your teachings, then be a coach or mentor for other kids.

Continue to do the things that have been most fulfilling for you.

3. If my life had absolutely no limits, what would I choose to have and what would I choose to do?

Here’s a cool exercise: Think about what you would do if you had no limits.

If you had all the money and time in the world, where would you go? What would you do? Who would you spend time with?

These answers can help you figure out what you want to do with your life. It doesn’t mean you need millions of dollars to be happy though.

What it does mean is answering these questions will help you set goals to reach certain milestones and create a path toward happiness and fulfillment. Which leads to our next question …

4. What are my goals in life?

Goals are a necessary component to set you up for a happy future. So answer these questions:

Once you figure out the answers to each of these, you’ll have a much better idea of what you should do with your life.

5. Whom do I admire most in the world?

Following the path of successful people can set you up for success.

Think about the people you respect and admire most. What are their best qualities? Why do you respect them? What can you learn from them?

You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.[1] So don’t waste your time with people who hold you back from achieving your dreams.

Spend more time with happy, successful, optimistic people and you’ll become one of them.

6. What do I not like to do?

An important part of figuring out what you want to do with your life is honestly assessing what you don’t want to do.

What are the things you despise? What bugs you the most about your current job?

Maybe you hate meetings even though you sit through 6 hours of them every day. If that’s the case, find a job where you can work more independently.

The point is, if you want something to change in your life, you need to take action. Which leads to our final question …

7. How hard am I willing to work to get what I want?

Great accomplishments never come easy. If you want to do great things with your life, you’re going to have to make a great effort. That will probably mean putting in more hours the average person, getting outside your comfort zone and learning as much as you can to achieve as much as you can.

But here’s the cool part: it’s often the journey that is the most fulfilling part. It’s during these seemingly small, insignificant moments that you’ll often find that “aha” moments that helps you answer the question,

“What do I want to do with my life?”

So take the first step toward improving your life. You won’t regret it.
