Have you ever walked into a space, even your own space and felt the negativity or stale energy right when you walked in? It can really make sensitive people uncomfortable, and clearing a room of negative energy fixes it fast. Maybe you have experienced it and not realized what you were experiencing.
Signs of negative energy in your space can show up differently for different people. You may:
- Experience a sense of constriction or feel attacked for no obvious reason.
- Intuitively feel unsafe, tense, or on guard.
- Sense prickly, off-putting vibes—you can’t wait to get out of there.
- Experience your own energy starting to fizzle, you feel foggy, over tired.
- Know there was a major argument, fight, or negative energy because you witnessed the event.
- Wish to routinely do this for good measure.
So what do you do about it? Well, if it’s not your space, you can get out of there ASAP. And you know the next time you go to that place, if you choose to go back (often times I just don’t go back) you can carry tools with you or be better prepared.
If it is negative energy in your space, its time to clear it! Clearing negative energy out of a room can be done in a few different ways. I have a strict rule about doing whatever works for you and whatever is simplest. So choose a method that resonates and doesn’t drain you further, then leave the rest.
I learned this technique from Hibiscus Moon, she uses it to clear crystals, and I have used it frequently since for clearing spaces. You can use sound vibrations (energy) to clear negative energy.Following the “keep it simple” rule, you can use any “noise” like playing music or a more traditional option such as a Tibetan Singing Bowl, Tingsha, or chime. You can check out this video below of those 3 items in action.
Meditation and intention are another way to clear a room of negative energy. You can simply meditation and during the meditation intend that the room be cleared with light, positive energy and blessings.
Sage is an age-old tool that has been used for a long time. I talk about the options around traditional sage smudging in the bonus video that comes with my free meditation e-kit here.
- Essential Oils
Using essential oils and even crystal infused solutions or elixirs can also work to clear a room of negative energy, without the smell of smoky sage and risk of the fire alarms going off.My favorite for this is a combination of sage and rosemary or sage and a citrus (I like to replace the negative energy with uplifting energy when possible). A simple recipe is:1 part water
1 part witch hazel
20 drops of Sage essential oil
20 drops of Citrus (Lemon, Orange, Lime) essential oilIf you want to get even fancier, you use water that has had Clear or Smokey Quartz or Amethyst or Rose Quartz infused in it.
Oh, I love me some crystals. You can use several different crystals for transmuting negative energy. Some of my favorites are: Rose Quartz, Smokey Quartz, and Amethyst. You can carry these with you are place them in doorways or rooms where negative energy abounds.
Remember no matter the method you choose, always choose something you will actually use and not just procrastinate on. Keep it simple to clear a room of negative energy.
