Cleansing and Protecting Your Self from Negative
Energy and a Negative Environment…
Is vital to your Health!
Ahhh, let’s take a deep breath and relax a moment, look around your environment- and now notice how it makes you feel, What does the energy feel like that you live in?
Think of negative energy in your home as if it were like dust. Over time the negative energy builds up in corners of your home, some rooms a bit dirtier then others, and some homes have more dirt then others. You have a lot to do with the energy in your home and your inner space. If you are someone who carries negative thoughts surrounding your life situations, you will tend to have an office or home full of negative energy, clutter, heaviness in the air and most likely feel depressed, ill or worthless. You will also notice you may seem to always have problems, whether they are personal or health problems.
The energy that surrounds you greatly affects your life and your health. A negative inner space, home or office will have effects on your concentration, your sleep and your immune system.
Many years ago I found myself in situations where I was always sick and experienced negative things happening all around me, it seem to last for years. I would even sit back and try to look at why so many negative things were going on and how I could go about changing that. I had gotten so sick that I was in bed and experienced a few surgeries over a period of years. It got to the point where I just thought it was me and my life and therefore nothing I would do could fix it. It wasn’t until I learned about Reiki and self-realization and made changes in my life that things got much better. As I looked back on the past situations, I understand more about how I created negative energy and events in many aspects of my life, and just like the domino effect…. I allowed it to penetrate my ‘whole’ life.
If any of this sounds familiar, sit back, take another breath and keep reading….. Your new journey starts today, right now!
Well actually, it was not just me that was causing the issue, it was the people I surrounded myself with, those that I spent a lot of time with, rubbing shoulders with negative energy, in our thoughts, outlook and experiences. They weren’t bad people, just negative; we were all behaving and mimicking what we had been taught by family, society and our peers. Thinking negative, gossip negatively, and say hurtful things about ourselves and others. Negative (surroundings) people, including a few that I worked with, began to help me built up a huge cloud of negative energy around myself. So much that it made me spiritually broken, physically sick and nothing ever seemed to go right, and my personal thoughts wouldn’t let the positive in…. didn’t know how?
You would think I would have known better; all my childhood I experienced dreams, awakenings, paranormal happenings and was very curious and open to ‘the new age experiences’ as it was so called or referred to. I knew how to cleanse and protect myself and had lived most my life with a very positive outlook.
But then something happened, tragedy and loss of my mother and brother, and I left myself really, jumped off the path of being spiritual. That is when things went down hill. I was to learn a lesson from loss, experience new emotions and learn to process life’s mishaps… But, I chose to leave my spiritual life and the little I had learned up to that point. That was one of the many reasons things got negative, illness manifested and my outlook and company felt like depressed energy, because it was!
Another thing that can cause negative energy around us is when people send it to us. It may sound crazy to some, but it is true. We live in a world full of negative and jealous people. People think bad things of us and send us negative energy and thoughts most of the time without even realizing it. It is not really smart on their part beings anything you put out, both good and bad, comes back to you. It does not pay to be jealous, mean to others or think negatively about others. It simply says you lack self love. There could be people you work with and even at times your own friends that are sending you negative energy. This is why it is not just important to cleanse your home, but to protect yourself too. So let’s focus on cleaning up some of the negative energy in your personal space, home or office.
Many years ago I attended a Spiritual Seminar that included a Reiki Circle; the Reiki Master Teacher said we should avoid negative people, negative places and negative situations/things. She also said you need to clean up the clutter in your life. That statement is so true and I have applied that to my life and it works. But to begin you really should learn the basics of cleansing the home and office and then more on to focusing on cleaning up other clutter in your life. It is obvious as to how you can avoid negative people, places and things. Just avoid those who are negative and don’t expose yourself to a place that is negative for you, including maybe even a family gathering or party, avoid gossip and situations that don’t belong to you.
Let us begin with the home or office. Get yourself a sage stick. Sometimes you can find a mix of sage and cedar and that will work just fine. This is an ancient practice used by Native American Indians and other traditions. You can find them in and new age book store or order online. You will also want to light a few white candles, one in each room if possible. Then get yourself some sea salt, not table salt, which is available at the grocery store. Mix a few tablespoons of sea salt with a cup of water, preferably spring or purified water. Light your candles and then go from room to room sprinkling, with your fingers, the sea salt water mixture. You should do this in every room mostly in the corners of the room and in the closets. When you’re finished you can light your sage stick. Once the sage stick is burning, you will go room to room once again fanning the sage smoke throughout the house and in the closets, and as a practice I smudge sage smoke and sea salt water all around myself too….
As I say a little prayer; for example: “I call upon my Spirit guides, Divine Masters, Angels and Light-workers to set a field of loving energy around my home, myself (and anything else you want to include) to cleanse this space of all negative energy and allow only good to enter herein. May the archangels protect me, my family (etc.) my home from all evil and all negative energy as I cleanse this space for the highest good… So it is.”
You and your home are now on the way to becoming a wonderfully positive place to reside, it also helps to have a clear mind and home that is very clean with no ‘clutter’ or mind chatter.
A few other things that help bring positive energy into the home are plants, especially the good luck bamboo plant. Some traditions believe you should have one bamboo plant in each room of the home. Having a fountain with running water in the home also helps create positive energy and brings a relaxed atmosphere. So many things can influence your life, your mood and how you feel. Even the color you paint the walls in your home can greatly affect the energy. Just doing a few things each month will help you to feel better and to live in a positive, clean environment, work with positive energy, increase your positive attitude. These few suggestions will surprise you and change your life.
