If you often feel stressed, angry, jealous, or unhappy, you’re prone to attracting negative energy.

For example, if a family member experienced a bad day at work and came home in a foul mood, you might end up feeling upset too. This way, individuals can pass off negative energy to other people.

Negative thoughts also affect your auric field, allowing unwanted energy to consume your drain your positive energy reserve.

How to Cleanse Negative Energy from Your Body

  1. Exercising

Exercising helps to release built-up tension and stress, and it also boosts your mood and energy levels.

The endorphins released during exercise are similar to opiates like morphine and heroin but without the risk of addiction or other harmful side effects. These endorphins act as neurotransmitters in the brain, binding to receptors on nerve cells and blocking pain signals from reaching the brain. 

This means that when you're feeling good after a workout, you will likely feel less stressed and more relaxed.

  1. Meditation 

Meditation is one of the most powerful tools we have for combating negative energy.

The practice of meditation allows you to connect with your higher self and tap into a higher frequency of energy. When you’re connected to this higher frequency, it’s easier to break free from the shackles of negativity.

There are many different types of meditation, so find one that suits you best. Some common forms of meditation used for cleansing include guided meditation, visualization, and breath work.

  1. Sound Therapy

Sound therapy works by using different sounds and frequencies to promote healing in the body.

Some common sound therapies used for cleansing include crystal bowls, gongs, and tuning forks. But our favorite is the Tibetan singing bowl.

This instrument has been used for hundreds of years to help people relax and meditate. The bowl is often made from various metals such as silver and copper whose vibrations are said to inspire healing in the body.

  1. Smudging

Smudging is an ancient spiritual practice that involves burning sacred plants to cleanse your body. It's based on the belief that the smoke from the sage clears away any unwanted energy.

Smudges are made from herbs and other natural materials like white sage, cedar, palo santo wood, sweetgrass, and copal resin. The smoke from these ingredients can be used to cleanse your body, mind, and spirit by wafting the smoke from the burning herbs around you.

  1. Reiki Healing

Reiki healing is a Japanese technique that can be used to cleanse negative energy from your body. It's based on the idea that there is an unseen "life force energy" that flows through us and is responsible for our well-being.

If this life force energy is low, we are more likely to get sick or feel stressed, and if it is high, we are more likely to be happy and healthy.

  1. Crystals

Crystals are known for their ability to absorb and store energy. They can be used to cleanse negative energy from your body by surrounding yourself with them or wearing them as jewelry.

Some of the most popular crystals used for cleansing include amethyst, clear quartz, turquoise, and black tourmaline.

You can place these crystals on your body or in certain areas of your home where you spend most of your time (such as your bedroom). You can also carry them with you in a pouch or even keep them under your pillow while sleeping.

  1. Journaling

Journaling can help you live a more peaceful life by organizing your thoughts and feelings. This is especially true if there’s something that makes you feel overwhelmed or out of control.

This method also helps us process our experiences by putting them into words. In return, it helps us understand ourselves better and gives us insight into what's going on inside us. This kind of insight can lead us to make changes in our lives.

When we keep a record of our days, we're also able to look back on them to see how far we've come. As a result, it helps us appreciate what we've accomplished. This lessens our negative thoughts, which is one of the causes of unwanted energy.

  1. Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is another effective way to cleanse negative energy from your body. It involves using essential oils to promote healing and relaxation in the body.

You can use aromatherapy in many different ways, such as diffusing oils with lava beads, adding them to your bathwater, or applying them topically to your skin.

  1. Feng Shui

Feng shui is a Chinese practice that is based on the belief that our surroundings have a direct impact on our energy levels.

So, by making small changes to our environment, we can shift the energy in our space and improve our well-being.

Some common feng shui techniques used for cleansing include decluttering, rearranging furniture, and adding plants to your space.


You might not realize how much negative energy you're taking on every day and how it's affecting your health. But once you start paying attention, you'll be amazed at how much better you’ll feel when the unwanted energy is gone.

Remember that there are always options for cleansing and healing. If you feel stuck in a cycle of negative energy, there are ways to get yourself out of it and move forward toward a more positive life experience.

By using any of the methods above, you can achieve a better state of health and well-being.
