5 Ways to Clear Negative Energy from Your Home

Alexa Erickson
By  | 

I’m in my home a lot. I work from home; I like to practice yoga in my home; I love to stay in and cook a time-intensive meal. That’s why it’s so important that I love the spaces within my home that I create for myself. Depending on my activity, this can mean calming music, lit candles, the essential oil diffuser switched on.
 
Sometimes the blinds are closed in the middle of the day. Other times every window and door is wide open, letting the fresh air and sunshine in. It’s also important for me to surround myself with things that promote positive energy.
 
Negative or harmful energy easily makes its way into the spaces of your home all the time. You may notice that certain days you feel totally off – depressed, stressed out, anxious, or unhappy for no apparent reason. Removing negative energy from your home on a regular basis allows you to restore balance and harmony in your space.
 

Here are six ways to clear negative energy from your home for your health and happiness:

 

1. Go green with plants

One of the first things I did when I moved into my home was buy a ton of plants – big and small. They’re a functional decoration that just so happen to purify the air whilst also adding a relaxing energy to any room.
 
A variety of plants have been studied for years, showing positive results for lessening indoor air pollution, reducing stress levels, and cleansing and purifying the human energy field.

 

2. Use a himalayan salt lamp

Made from Himalayan salt crystals, these salt lamps release negative ions into the air when lit, which purifies the air by fighting against positively charged particles that cause you to feel sluggish and stuffy.
 
Not only do they naturally clear the air of allergens like smoke, pet dander, pollens, and other air pollutants, but they also emit a beautiful, soothing light source with a natural, orange glow that doesn’t disrupt sleep cycles like fluorescent or blue lights do.

 

3. Burn white sage

Sage cleansing is one of the oldest ways to remove negative energy from your space. To smudge, light a rolled stick of sage (which you can find online), or at a variety of health food and specialty stores), set an intention of what you are going to cleanse, and then fan the sage delicately.
 
Opening your windows and doors will allow the negative energy to quickly exit your home. Walk around, swirling it in a counterclockwise rotation, and say positive affirmations to promote positivity during the process.
 

 

4. Make a DIY space-clearing spray

Just like humans, homes have chakras, too. In fact, the rooms of our homes mimic our body’s chakra centers. For example, the attic and roof mimic the crown chakra; the living room and family room mimic the throat chakra; the basement mimics the root chakra, etc.
 
You can do energy work to balance these chakras, by incorporating pure essential oils that promote positivity and stability, like rose, lavender, frankincense and patchouli.
 
To make a space-clearing spray, simply combine water, essential oils, flower essences, gem elixirs – which are vibrational remedies made from crystals (black tourmaline, smoky quartz and amethyst are all great choices for clearing negative energy) – and some sea salt. Spray it all around!
 

5. Place black tourmaline throughout your home

Black tourmaline is one of the best crystals for clearing negative energy since it does not need its own energy to be cleared like other crystals do. Place it in your home’s entryway to repel any potential negative energy from entering, or place in the center of your home to radiate outward throughout your entire space.

 
This powerful crystal also works to absorb electromagnetic energy, making it a great crystal to put near your TV, laptop, Internet router and other electronic devices to protect from harmful energy.
 

Feeling balanced in your own home is crucial for your overall happiness and wellbeing. There are so many things that you can do to make your space one of peace and purity. However, sometimes an overwhelming feeling of negativity lurks about for seemingly no reason, and you may find it beneficial to create a sacred space with holistic remedies practiced by ancient healers and New Age enthusiasts alike.
