CLEARING BAD ENERGY FROM YOUR HOME:
Cleansing your house of bad vibes can be an important step in your personal well-being – but how do you know if you have harmful energy in your home, and how do you clear it out without being harmful to the earth?
You can tell whether the energy in your home is good or bad – or neutral – based on the way you feel inside. A house filled with good energy feels fresh and vibrant; it’s full of life, and you feel good being there. Some may say it has good qi or feng shui. On the other end of the spectrum, a home drowning in bad vibes and waste will make you feel like you’re being stifled, smothered or even crushed. You can feel the tension in the air, and there are a thousand places you’d rather be.
Negative energy and stress go hand-in-hand, so if you’re constantly frazzled or at the end of your rope, your home could be partly to blame. If you’re not sure whether your home has bad energy of its own, check out these red flags:
Excessive complaining. If you or your family members catch yourselves complaining, even when things are okay (or worse, when they’re actually pretty good), you may have negative energy in your home. The same is true if you’re struggling to find the positivity in life.
Negative relationships. When the people around you – spouses, children, family and friends – are negative, it’s worth taking a look at the kind of energy you’re putting out there. Negative energy attracts more negative energy, and it becomes a vicious cycle.
The blame game. Household members always pointing the finger? Negative energy in the home could be preventing them (and you) from looking inward to place responsibility where it really belongs.
Criticism. If there’s a lot of criticizing going along with all the blame, your home could be swamped with bad energy. When you (or others in your house) send out negative vibrations, you’re increasing negative energy in your space.
Clutter. One of the biggest signs of negative energy in a home is clutter and waste. Clutter blocks the way energy flows through a home and waste expels more toxins in your air, so it could be keeping bad energy and toxins in and making things worse.
Even if you aren’t picking up on any of these warning signs that you’re dealing with bad energy, it’s a good idea to clear your house when someone has had an argument, been sick or is experiencing stress at work. Negative energy and waste can build up in your space over time, as well, so it’s okay to attempt to clear it whenever you feel like doing so.
Your home is the one place you should feel safe and secure, but if you open the door and you’re practically swimming in a pool of bad energy and harmful chemicals, you need to cleanse it – and this checklist will help.
THE ULTIMATE CHECKLIST
Fortunately, it’s typically easy to clear bad energy and waste out of your home to make room for positive energy. You’ll have to do an all-over cleansing, but it’s straightforward and simple.
First, clean the house. You can clear out your clutter sustainably and safely by storing your things away until you need them, donating your unwanted items, or recycling them so they can be repurposed and not sitting in a landfill.
Make sure you clean every corner with organic and natural cleaners to rid your home of germs and toxins without filling it with harsh chemicals.
Open all the blinds, and, weather-permitting, open your windows. Let in as much light and fresh air as you can as you clean.
Don’t forget to dust, vacuum and check for cobwebs – you don’t want the negative energy to have any reason to stick around.
One way you can revitalize your space and bring in good energy is by lighting some candles! There’s a lot to love about scented candles — a fine fragrance and a flickering flame transform a space, take you on a journey and inspire you to power down.
When looking for candles to purchase for your home, you want to steer clear from cheap, toxic and fake smelling candles.
Look for coconut wax candles. Coconut wax is the most sustainably produced, clean and slow-burning. It's the clear choice over cheaper, toxic alternatives. Coconut wax is naturally obtained.
Since it burns cleanly, coconut wax candles throw scent better too, creating a calming, good energy that you need in your home.
