You will, after reading the list, some will feel more appealing to you than others.

#1 Smudging

The best way to clear negative energy from your house is to smudge it.

The best way to clear negative energy from your house is to smudge it. My favorite is sage stick but you can also use cedar, lavender, juniper, rosemary, or any other herbs that you like. I also like burning Palo Santo wood.

There are many traditions that use smudging. If you belong to one or want to follow a particular ceremony, you can do so. I chose to do a very simple process. I open all the windows and I burn the stick walking as much of the house as possible. Fan the sage lightly.

#2 Light an oil lamp

Lighting a simple oil lamp eliminates grief and sorrow by spreading positive energy.

#3 Spray Holy Water

when the Holy Water is sprayed throughout the house, it lifts the vibration of the space and makes is a much more pleasant place to live. You can grab some Holy Water from any church nearby.

# 4 Use crystals

People love crystals because they are very pretty. But crystals can be used for protection and to clear negative energy. My favorite crystals are

crystals, healing, energy
Crystals can be used for protection and to clear negative energy.
  • amethyst – for serenity of the mind
  • rose quartz – attracting love
  • black tourmaline – a powerful healer and protector
  • black jade – mental stability
  • obsidian – truth enhancing
  • smithsonite – stress relieving and peaceful mind
  • carnelian – feeling grounded
  • citrine – welcome abundance

#5 De-clutter

Depending on how long you have lived in your home, you might have accumulated a lot of things. Things hold energy. It is great if you house if full of good energy, but not so great when negative energy is held in your clatter. Start with cleaning your clatter. If you haven’t used something in over a year, chances are you do no need it. Share it with others. Donate it. Give it to others that need it and will appreciate it.

#6 Let the air in

Open the windows and let the fresh air in. Even in winter, make sure you crack at least one window open for a period of time. In the summer, when the A/C is blasting, try to find some time when you can open the window for a bit and let some air in.

#7 Have indoor plants

You can use nature to remove negative energy. Indoor plants purify the air, give you a sense of well-being, and relief stress. They increase the flow of energy.

#8 Sea salt

Sea salt has healing properties and can purify the energy in your house.

  • Start with moping the floors with sea salt water.
  • If you do not have restful sleep – place some sea salt in a container at the head of your bed
  • place sea salt bags throughout your house

#9 Burn candles

Burn candles to clear negative energy.

Smell is very important. Find some candles with refreshing smells that you enjoy and burn them often. If you do not want to burn candles, you can use a diffuse and essential oils.

#10 It starts with you

The energy of the mind is the essence of life. – Aristotle

The above suggestions are great and I urge you to try them but the truth is that it all starts with you. If you notice that your attitude is not so positive, at some point you will have to address that.

Sure the crystals, and smudging can help to a certain degree but an attitude adjustment is required.

This is the hard work that not everyone is willing to do, but if you truly want to cleanse your life of negative energy, it requires changing your mind.
