Here is the second part of the post on how to remove negative energy from your house. If you’ll like to start at the beginning, you can read the first part of this post here.
5.- Tidy up: It’s hard for energy to flow when all the surfaces in your home are covered in things. Also negative energy needs objects to cling to.
If you keep unwashed dishes in the kitchen, half eaten cookies on the table, old newspapers and magazines on your living room, clothes hanging from the back of every chair, laying on the bed; shoes on the floor (…well, you get the idea) then your home is completely open to negative energy.
All this “obstacles” stop the normal flow of energy towards the outside, and therefore help negative energy linger. By making a habit out of tidying up a little daily you’ll find that the general feel of your home improves.
Assigning places for specific items usually helps. If you know your family will leave their shoes lying around no matter what you tell them, then create a spot where they can drop them. That way you’ll only have to pick up and sort shoes from one spot, rather than having to raid the whole house looking for a missing shoe.
Get a laundry basket so that dirty clothes have a place to go. Keep coffee tables clean, remove old and broken items and throw them out or donate them, so that someone else can benefit from something you no longer need.
Most of us have little spare time and don’t want to spend our free time cleaning, but you don’t need more than an hour to keep your home tidy if you do it daily. If you can engage some other members of the family to help, then you probably just need half an hour, and that’s not too much to ask, is it?
6.- Try the following recipe:
To a small pot add half a litre of water, 1 cinnamon stick, 2 slices of orange. Place on a medium heat and let it boil for as long as you want. Keep an eye on the water level, and add more when needed.
Cinnamon clears energy generated by fights, anger and resentment and protects your home from other sources of negative energy.
Orange smell energizes.
As the aromas from the pot move around your home, you’ll be enveloped in a warm and inviting atmosphere.
Orange and cinnamon are also closely associated with the Christmas season which for most of us carries a positive connotation, therefore this concoction will, subtly, make you feel more cheerful and hopeful.
7.- Use sea salt: If you are feeling a little more adventurous, or think that your home is really negatively “charged”, a great way to be rid of even the most tenacious of negative vibes is by using sea salt. This is a remedy commonly used in Feng Shui to clear the energy of homes and offices.
There are two ways you may use sea salt: One is to sprinkle it on the floor of every room (or the room you feel needs it), leave it for an hour and then hoover it. This should remove any trace of negative energy.
Otherwise, you can place bowls with sea salt in each room of your home and leave them there for a month. The salt will absorb the negative energy. You can then throw the salt away (make sure not to keep this salt in your home after you’ve used it for cleaning).
8.- Meditate: A great way to dispel negative energy. Sit daily for at least 15 minutes during a week. A proper meditation in your living space will broadcast out a powerful positive vibration. The energy generated during a meditative state is much more powerful and positive than any negative energy that could be lingering in your home. A proper meditation will saturate a space with uplifting energy for several hours.
Meditating on a regular basis will also increase your creativity, awareness and well-being.
9.- Add living Plants: Plants bring colour, oxygen, and positive energy to any space.
Certain type of plants also filter the air around them, so they are a great addition to any home. According to a study carried out by NASA, the following plants not only turn CO2 into O2, but they also help purify the air in any room by absorbing benzene, formaldehyde and/or trichloroethylene from their surroundings:
- English ivy (Hedera helix)
- Peace lily (Spathiphyllum ‘Mauna Loa’)
- Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema modestum)
- Bamboo palm or reed palm (Chamaedorea sefritzii)
- Gerbera daisy or Barberton daisy (Gerbera jamesonii)
- Rubber plant (Ficus elastica)
Bear in mind that for plants to be a positive energy source, you need to look after them, remove any dead leaves, stems or flowers and water them as required.
Wilted, dead plants are a source of negative energy, as you may imagine, given that they are dead and therefore have no positive energy to release.
10. – Rearrange your furniture: Negative energy needs something to hold on to. Arrange your rooms with as much wide open space as possible (hopefully you would have tidied up around you before doing this, creating even more space), allowing any negative energy to disperse. Also, the mere act of rearranging will cause harmful energy to dissipate, by breaking the existing energy patterns.
While you are at it, hoover your carpets and plump any cushions and pillows you got in your home; they too get impregnated with negative energy and it’s good to give them a hearty whipping every once in a while.
These are the ways I know to clear negative energy. Do you know any other ways? Can you share them with us so that more people will know about them? Thank you!
Have a great day!
