Whether you believe in energies or auras surrounding spaces is your personal decision. However, whether you believe or not, one thing we can all agree on is the fact that sometimes a space just feels ‘off’.
You may be experiencing signs of negative energy at home and not be sure why. In the case of messy or dirty places, this feeling is clear, but sometimes the cause of a general feeling of negativity towards a certain place or space can be harder to pinpoint.
Think about your own home, do you ever find that there are certain rooms you gravitate to more than others? How you may enjoy relaxing in some places, and working in others, yet there are others that you subconsciously avoid entirely?
The cause of this is usually the negative energy that is emitting from that space. There are many reasons why this space may be viewed as negative in your subconscious mind, and as I mentioned, some are more difficult to figure out than others.
You may also find that the way you feel towards a room sours or sweetens depending on the changes made to the space.
If you work from home like me, this can be very inconvenient, as you need to make sure that your workspace is arranged in a way that supports a healthy mind, body, and spirit, which will allow you to increase and maintain peak productivity.
In this article, I’ve considered some of the factors that can make my own space difficult to work or relax in, as well as some of the solutions which I have found have helped me to cleanse my space of negative energy.
What Are The Signs of Negative Energy at Home?
Our homes are our sanctuaries, our safe havens where we seek refuge from the outside world. It is where we spend most of our time and where we feel the most relaxed and comfortable.
However, sometimes our homes can also become a source of negativity, which can affect our physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
Negative energy can be caused by various factors, such as the presence of negative people, clutter, or even a lack of light and fresh air. In this article, we will discuss some signs of negative energy at home and how to combat them.
Unexplained Feelings of Anxiety or Depression
If you are feeling anxious, depressed, or irritable, without any apparent reason, it could be a sign of negative energy in your home. Negative energy can affect your mood, leaving you feeling drained and irritable. If you notice a sudden change in your behavior or emotions, try to identify the source of the negativity and take steps to eliminate it.
Without a designated relaxing space you’re likely to feel more stressed, anxious, and tired.
Over time this may morph into physical symptoms such as stomach aches and headaches, so a place to relax really is essential!
You should try to keep your relaxing space as clean and clutter-free as possible.
A messy space is a stressful space because you’ll constantly be looking at the dirt or clutter and be thinking about cleaning it, instead of focusing on your relaxing activity or just spacing out.
Make it part of your relaxation ritual that before you settle down, you quickly clear away any mess.
Unexplained Physical Symptoms
Negative energy can also manifest itself in physical symptoms such as headaches, nausea, and fatigue. If you notice that you or your family members are experiencing unexplained physical symptoms, it may be a sign of negative energy in your home. It is essential to identify the source of the negativity and take steps to eliminate it.
Some spaces in your home are designated to productivity, such as an office, studio, or kitchen.
However, with negative energy in your space it can be hard to focus on the task at hand, and you may find your productivity within that space drops, or that you are reluctant to instigate activity in the space in general.
On a similar vein to the first point of this article, you should try to limit clutter in your workspace.
This is because clutter creates a visual distraction leading to overstimulation, which makes it harder to focus on your project.
Even if your space is tidy, you should ideally avoid having anything that is highly patterned, features text, or vivid imagery within eye line of your workspace.
Unexplained Cold Spots or Drafts
If you notice cold spots or drafts in certain areas of your home, it could be a sign of negative energy. These cold spots can be caused by negative energy that has accumulated in a particular area, and it is essential to identify the source and eliminate it.
A spot of feng-shui can help make sure that your space is an engaging and inspiring place to be.
By rearranging your furniture into a way that makes sense to you you’re not only making it easier to navigate your space, but you’re also claiming ownership of your space.
You can rearrange your furniture as much as you like, in fact it can be a great way to spruce up a room without spending a single cent!
You should also fill your space with things that bring you joy.
Nowadays people can often get too hung up on aesthetics, thinking their home has to be a white box with rose gold and pastel accents.
I don’t know about you but that look just isn’t me. I find spaces that are homely and lived in to be much more inspiring.
As I mentioned, my favorite color is yellow, so I try to add elements of this color to my spaces to bring me joy and inspiration.
Strange Noises or Unexplained Activity
If you hear strange noises or experience unexplained activity in your home, it could be a sign of negative energy. These occurrences can be caused by negative energy that has accumulated in your home, and it is essential to identify the source and eliminate it.
You should also avoid any strong scents.
Instead, just like relaxing you may find than some lavender or clary sage essential oil dotted on your pillow or pajamas will help you to slip into a deeper sleep.
Just like when relaxing, avoid over stimulating sounds if possible, and definitely remove anything that ticks from your space!
Focusing on the ticking of clock when trying to sleep is only likely to leave you frustrated, as it will remind you of how long it is taking you to settle.
In the morning, be sure to take the time to fluff your pillows and shake out your sheets before making your bed.
Clutter and Disorganization
Clutter and disorganization in your home can also contribute to negative energy. When your living space is cluttered and disorganized, it can be challenging to focus and relax. Try to declutter and organize your home to promote a positive environment.
If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed and unable to concentrate in your home, it may be a sign that there is negative energy present.
To counter this, you can smudge your house with sage, use essential oils or open windows to circulate fresh air.
You could also bring in plants and crystals known for their purifying properties and practice mindfulness techniques such as meditation or focusing on your breath.
Additionally, it may be helpful to assess the physical layout of your home.
Lack of Natural Light and Fresh Air
A lack of natural light and fresh air in your home can also contribute to negative energy. Natural light and fresh air are essential for promoting a positive and healthy living environment. Try to open your windows and let in natural light, or consider adding some plants to your living space.
In conclusion, negative energy in your home can have a significant impact on your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. If you notice any of the signs mentioned above, try to identify the source of the negativity and take steps to eliminate it. Whether it is decluttering your living space, opening your windows, or seeking the help of a professional, there are many ways to combat negative energy in your home and promote a positive and healthy living environment.
