You don’t have to wait for the full or new moon though to do these things. Anytime is good time to push out negative energy. As you begin to become more sensitive to energy (simply by paying attention to it) you’ll start to feel when the time is best for you to do these things.
How Do We Pick Up Negative Energy?
But we can also pick up the energy that’s been left somewhere. For instance, if you’ve ever walked into an empty room and feel sadness or just something bad, that’s negative energy that’s been stained on that room. It’s this kinda of energy that makes us want to leave a room or house without really having an explanation other than “something just feels off”.
You create negative energy by hanging onto bad things. This can be bad habits, thought patterns, negative people, beliefs, etc. If something makes you feel bad, then you’re accumulating negative energy.
Ways to Start Dispelling Negative Energy
Aromatherapy/ Essential Oils: Negative energy doesn’t like being fought with positive energy and smells like citrus, lavender, and eucalyptus can help promote peace and tranquility. Put these in a diffuser or on your wrist or the back of your neck.
Incense: To ward off negative energy, my favorite thing to use in incense. When I feel like something is lingering I light up some frankincense or dragon’s blood and walk around the house to all the corners.
Releasing stress: This is one of my favorite things to do and it’s becoming something I do with every new moon. Get some paper and a fire-proof bowl. Write down what stresses you out, give permission to let it all go, and then burn it up baby!
Write down the things that you feel you’ve failed with: Write down everything that you feel you’ve failed at. Don’t leave anything out and nothing is too small when it comes to making this list. Burn it up and give yourself permission to let go of this guilt and negativity.
Say the things you ‘hate’: I enjoy doing this exercise with my fiancé. Take turns saying things that you don’t like. No matter how ridiculous it might sound. Say it out loud. When you bottle things up, your giving it permission to haunt you.
Write down what’s stopping you: When it comes to what you want in life, write down everything that you think is stopping you. Take a look at this list. Aren’t most of those things just stuff that’s in your head? And you guessed it: Burn it up baby!
Empower Your Positive Energy
It’s not just enough to have positive energy sometimes to help to in dispelling negative energy or to help with keeping it away.
**I do have a post about how to protect yourself from negative energy that I mention at the end of this article.**
There are some ways to empower your positive energy on a daily basis. They also help to keep your mind, body, and soul functioning in a healthy way.
Balance your chakras: Your chakras are the energy systems in your body. If your energy systems are blocked or not functioning properly then your whole body is going to feel the effects of this.
Believe in yourself: Your mind has more power over you then you’d perhaps like to believe. Believing in yourself and your abilities can help protect you from negative energy.
Practice affirmations: If you catch your mind saying negative things about you or about a situation, change it up! Practice using positive affirmations. Use your own or hope on Pinterest to find one that speaks to you!
After you’ve cleared some of the negative energy from your life and your surroundings, you need to start protecting yourself from picking up more negative energy. It’s not always possible to avoid it all but there are things that you can do to help avoid it. You can read about that here in my post: Protecting Yourself From Negative Energy
