How to Burn Sage
Burning sage, also known as smudging, is a great way to clear your house and your body from negativity. It’s a simple process that requires only four things – concentration, a smudge stick, a fireproof container, and a source of the fire.

Keep Crystals in Each Room
While the first three options of using healing crystals are meant to cleanse your aura and body, this one assists with keeping negative energy out of your house. Crystals will bring their energy into your home, so you should choose carefully which stone properties are most suitable for which room.

- For your living room: Peridot (calms jealousy and anger) and Opal (improves communication)
- For your kitchen: Jasper (boosts imagination) and Aventurine (stimulates metabolism)
- For your office: you can use White Topaz (grants clarity) and Tiger’s Eye (a stone of knowledge and courage)
These are just a few examples of what stones healing properties you can use to your advantage. Choose any crystal that is suitable for your goals and emotional condition.
Visualize The Release Of Energy
As simple as it may sound, visualizing the release of negative energy you are holding onto is a practice that everyone should get into the habit of doing. It’s easier than you think.
First, set an intention for releasing all negativity kept within you or on you, anything you’ve picked up by people around negative entities or people. Then think or say, ” I choose to release any energy that no longer serves me.” You can use whatever words you’d like, of course.
Sometimes, when I am feeling particularly heavy, I physically brush the energy off of my body – just using my hands. Also, as you are practicing, imaging each heavy breath you take inhaling clean energy and releasing anything you no longer want to possess.
Cleaning your House
Cleaning your house from dust, dirt, old useless stuff isn’t only beneficial for the energy in your home, but it’s also good for your mind. Remember, When you hold onto unwanted goods and leave a mess all over your house, you leave no room for new opportunities to come into your life.
While it might seem like a chore, cleaning ends up being very therapeutic. Because when you’re cleaning, vacuuming, or washing dishes, your mind ends up going blank. Feels like meditation!
Bonding with Nature
You can also get rid of the negative energy in your home by enlisting nature’s help. How? Two words – windows and plants.
You probably know the importance of opening the windows for better air circulation. But stuffy air isn’t the only thing that will go away when you open your windows. Bad energy exits as well.
Plants can help clear out negativity because they bring in a sense of positivity into your home all while making you naturally feel calmer and relaxed. Consider the following types:
- Peace lilies
What does negative energy feel like? Negative energy feels like exhaustion, worry, fear, anger, jealousy, or an overwhelming sense of helplessness.
What is a simple bath soak I can take to neutralize my energy? If you don’t have any crystals on hand, you can combine 1 1/2 cups of sea salt and 1 1/2 cups of baking soda together into a warm bathtub. Soak as needed.
