Negative Energy: 10 Ways To Get Rid Of It Right Now!
Get rid of negative energy!
Negative energy is a caustic force that you absolutely don’t want in your life. It generates bad karma and also takes a toll on your health.
Research shows that people who carry negative energy with them get more sick than most and suffer from poor self-esteem. They also tend to live shorter lives.
If negative energy has been part of your reality, it has likely caused you a number of problems, including unwanted illnesses, financial struggles and unhealthy relationships with others.
Negative energy can also cause you to gain weight and accelerate the aging process. In fact wherever negative energy exists, there is a high likelihood that bad luck is not too far behind.
I have seen first hand just how destructive negative energy can be in my own life and the lives of loved ones. It took a devastating toll on my health in the form of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and lost relationships. It snatched the health of my grandmother and caused her to become a double amputee. It also caused the death of a pet dog that I loved dearly.
Making the decision to cleanse yourself of negative energy means deciding to turn away from toxic thoughts. It means choosing to engage in activities that promote and maintain wellness. It means stopping the downward spiral of sorrow and pain and tapping into a greater force that is restorative and repairative.
Finally, cleansing yourself of negative energy means limiting exposure to caustic people.

Look for positive
1. Focus on the positive
Focusing on the positive doesn't mean adopting a Pollyanna attitude to life. Instead, it means identifying the good things, however small, that are part of your reality.
An example might be that child who smiled at you today for no apparent reason or the dollar you found on the sidewalk.
It could also mean focusing on something positive about yourself, such as the unique color of your eyes or the wonderful ability you have to make others laugh. You may struggle at first with identifying the positive but in time, a snowball effect will take place and it will be fairly easy to quickly list all of the good things happening in your life.
Not everything is “bad” in your life. Focusing on the positive empowers our next point – gratitude.
2. Practice gratitude with zeal
One of the most powerful ways you can cleanse yourself of negativity is by practicing gratitude. This however, can only happen after we focus on the positive. Practicing gratitude with zeal means not complaining about a given struggle and appreciating your greater journey.
It means believing that you are worthy of happiness and appreciative of all that has been done on your behalf. Gratitude disempowers caustic behaviors, which can translate into isolation and loneliness. Your ability to engage in gratitude fuels the next negative energy cleaning tactic – modesty.
3. Practice Modesty
Modesty is truly an art form. It requires that you embrace the gifts that you have and trust that the universe will recognize them.
Modesty means resisting the urge to brag about yourself or your deeds and believe that your efforts will ultimately be rewarded.
When you over-promote who you are or what you have done for others, you set yourself up in a negative trap of expectations. Nothing is owed to you. Remember, all that you have is ultimately a gift. And while you may have worked hard to obtain the position in life that you have reached, someone, somewhere helped to make that possible.
4. Embrace who you are
There is an old saying that suggests we attract what we are. If constantly deny certain truths about yourself, you create a negative paradox that is fueled by guilt and shame. Embracing who you are means embracing all of who you are, including your mental health issues.
Embracing who you are also means recognizing that you are not alone on this journey called life and that others just like you are working through different life challenges.
Example: If you have obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), know that you have nothing to be ashamed of. Did you know that many celebrities have struggled with OCD? It’s true! The same holds true if you are challenged by depression.
5. Choose to be around positive people
All of us to some extent have the ability to choose whom we associate with. When you choose to surround yourself with positive people, you paradoxically attract positive things in your life – including money. Choosing to be around positive people means letting negative people go. Never try to keep someone around who doesn’t want to stay.
If you are not able to distance yourself from negative people, you can choose to limit exposure. This means not allowing your deep empathy for others to turn into a situation where you end up becoming emotionally drained.
It means recognizing the signs of people who engage in learned helplessness and being OK with allowing them to walk their own path. Finally, it means knowing which personality types you are most compatible with.
Negative Energy Can Be Repelled
6. Embrace humor
Finding humor in various life events a sometimes be challenging. One of the best ways you can begin embrace humor is by allowing yourself to laugh – particularly at yourself. Rather than channeling negative energy towards yourself through self-criticism, try giggling.
By taking yourself less seriously and recognizing that mistakes are part of life, you help to repel the darkness and usher in restorative and healing light.
7. Help other people
When you are in a dark, negative place, it is difficult to do much of anything. This is particularly true if you are feeling depressed or highly anxious. One of the best ways to detoxify yourself of the negative energy you are holding is to help other people.
When you help other people, you channel the powerful energy of love. This is one of the most healing and forces in the universe. You don’t have to do anything herculean either to offer assistance to those who might be in need.
An example might be offering to help an elderly person cross the street or holding an elevator door open for someone in a rush. You can also help others by volunteering your time to causes that you care about and by donating money to people who are truly in need. When you help others, you paradoxically help yourself and attract harmony.
8. Open windows
Opening your windows allows you to become closer with nature – a life giving force that is all about positive energy. Even when it is cold outside, it is good sometimes to let in fresh air. The act of opening your windows will require that you also open your shades.
Combined, the light (even from nighttime stars), combined with restorative planetary winds will cleanse your environment of stale oxygen – something that negative energy likes to dwell in. Finally, opening your windows creates a symbiotic relationship mother nature, which is a force that pushes you towards the light.
Peace chant repels negativity
9. Chant goodness
Chanting is a commonly used spiritual practice that has rhythmic elements. You don’t need to speak a foreign language to engage in a chant that is designed to cleanse yourself of negative energy. All you need to do is pick a group or words or a positive phrase to help chase away the darkness.
If you are struggling with creating your own chant, consider partaking in a basic “Om Shanti Om” chant that is designed to clear your mind, purge yourself of negativity and attract positive energy. This is a very powerful way for you to clear the dark forces currently hovering around your life.
10. Light a candle
A final way to remove negative energy from your immediate proximity is to light a candle. Darkness cannot exist if there is any form of light. Even if there is sunlight outside, a candle can help your situation. You may be wondering how?
When you light a candle, you have the ability to attach a thought to the burning flame. What many people do is identify the one negative thought that seems to be a constant in their life and then mentally project that thought onto the candle flame. Let the heat of the burn from that candle slowly disintegrate the negative energy your dark thought has been holding over you.
Some people who believe in a higher power like to weave in prayers. Others who subscribe to humanistic and Karmic principles use elements of astral-projection. Finally, people who are of certain zodiac signs tap into various forms of celestial energy. The choice is yours but candle burning can help to reinforce a positive intention while destroying dark toxicity.
