At the end of a long and busy day, the last thing you want is to return home to find yourself swamped in negative energy. Unfortunately, our homes can become breeding grounds for hostility and when this happens, you can find yourself overcome with stress, anxiety, malaise, and even illness. There is good news though. Thankfully, negative energy is certainly not permanent. By making a conscious effort to refresh your space and fill your home with positive vibes, you can banish negativity and surround yourself with harmony instead.
Here are 7 ways to remove negative energy from your home.
1. Sage advice
Burning sage can be a great way of cleansing the atmosphere and increasing positive vibrations. The smoke will cleanse the energy in the air before carrying negativity through the nearest open window.
Filling each room with the smell of sage is like giving your home a refreshing shower. It’s a great way to start anew. Once your room smells of sage, think of it as a blank canvas which you can fill with happy emotions and vibrant energy.
2. Let the light in
Even if you’re in a rush to get to work in the morning, open your curtains to let natural light in as soon as you can. The sun will cleanse and stimulate your home and give each room a fresh and energised feel. A home that’s dark and dull can become a breeding ground for negative energies.
3. A breath of fresh air
Fresh air can do your home a world of good. Not only can it help you achieve a fresh smell throughout your home and minimise the likelihood of mould, it can also enable positive vibes to flow freely while allowing negativity to escape right out the window.
4. Crystal clear
Placing crystals in each room can have a wonderful effect on the energies present in your home. With so many crystals to choose from, it’s simply a case of finding the ones that do the job you want them to do. If you want to boost creativity, for example, a carnelian, lapis lazuli or amazonite could be right for you. If, however, you want to focus solely on happiness, team an onyx with a moonstone.

5. Music to your ears
Music can be a fantastic healer. By playing calming or joyful music, you can uplift your mood and fill your home with happiness at the same time. Although you probably already have go-to songs that you turn to in times of crisis, it’s worth exploring different songs, artists and genres from time to time. You never know, you might find something that really moves and inspires you.
6. Out with the old
Think of your home as your own sacred space of peace and tranquillity. If it’s filled with items that evoke bad memories or don’t bring you joy, you’ll struggle to create an environment that is completely free from negative energy. Feng Shui is an incredibly powerful force that can help you create harmony within your home.
7. Live, laugh, love
Sage, crystals and fresh air can only do so much. To fully remove negative energy and make your home a more positive and welcoming place, you need to fill it with joy. Make an effort to focus on the good things in life rather than dwelling on the bad. By regularly having friends and family members round and hosting the occasional party or social gathering, you can create an environment that’s bursting with glee and contentment. Consider decorating each room with photos and pictures that arouse cheerful memories, fill you with nostalgia and transport you back to some of the best days of your life.
