Feng-Shui Methods to Clear Negative Energy in the Home


Source: GaiamTV

So you’re not ready a full-blown space-clearing ritual, but there are a few bad vibes you’d like to be rid of. No problem! There are a few basic space-clearing techniques you can utilize to encourage buoyant energy to gather in our homes, enhancing its energetic orderliness while sustaining our own happiness. At the same time, these methods also sizzle away the dark energy, bringing light and air into your home sweet home.

These tips are not an official ritual of any kind, but they are Feng Shui principles that have withstood the test of time. They are simple and easy to incorporate into your home, as told by Feng Shui consultant and blogger Amanda Gibby Peters:

1. Open windows.

Think about how amazing it feels when out in nature. The air is alive and electric with potent life force, often filling us with fresh hope. When we open windows, we invite this same wild grace into our space. The outside air beckons our home to enjoy a deep cleansing breath, exhaling negativity (and toxins!) out. Invite the ripples of a breeze into your surroundings daily, if even for only a few minutes.

2. Burn incense.

As mindful as we strive to be in conversation, we sometimes say too much. And as carefully as we filter what seeps in through media, it is an easy slip. So, keep a stash of incense sticks handy.

Incense has a magical quality that shifts energy immediately. Burn incense after a stormy argument or any lingering unpleasantness — it restores balances in our surroundings. Some practitioners love white sage; others love sandalwood. Experiment, and use what your nose LOVES. Our intention while clearing the air carries its own irrefutable power.

3. Sweep.

Vacuuming works well when keeping an area pristine of dust or dirt — both which carry low-wattage energy. However, it is the symbolic gesture of sweeping with a broom that creates a palpable energetic shift. Vacuum as a maintenance ritual. But when energy feels static, sweep. And don’t worry if an area is carpeted — the bristles don’t even need to touch the ground. Sweep toward a door or an open window. This ritual becomes symbolic of sweeping out the old to make room for refreshments.

4. Take a sea salt bath.

When left unattended, toxic words eventually get into us. They pile up and we feel the effects weeks later in unexpected outbursts or clinging bad moods. Slip into a salt bath for 20 minutes — this renews our personal energetic fields immediately. Need an easy recipe? Add 2 — 4 cups of sea salt with a few drops of a favorite essential oil (or a couple orange peel rinds) to a full bath, and let yourself soak.

5. Use beautiful words.

Habits don’t change overnight, so try this instead: make it a goal to use the word JOY or LOVE 50 times a day. When we pirouette through our home with gorgeous words, the world turns in our favor. Words create a gravitational force, attracting their likeness into our lives.

Words absolutely shape our tender trajectories, each making its own energetic deposit in our surroundings. Observe the words spoken in your space and how they make you feel. Incorporate a few of these techniques into your daily rhythm, and adopt the one(s) that work for you. When we honor their power, words fuel our ability to live a really good life.

    These sounds, together, like a beautiful morning ritual to start the day with serenity and happiness… perhaps because I’m off to open the windows just now. 🙂 Blessings.
