It is common for us to feel the stresses of everyday life bearing down upon us. Sometimes it is hard to get away from the negative feelings and thoughts especially when it feels like nothing can go right. But, not only does negativity affect our minds, it affects the people around us as well. When we keep thinking these negative thoughts, it gets us deeper down into the pit, making it harder for us to get back out. Just small changes in our thoughts can make a huge difference in our attitudes and our outlook on life. Life is a beautiful thing and we should always see it as that. Our lives should be filled with positivity and love. Removing negativity from ourselves emotionally and spiritually can remind us of that, and show us how positively beautiful life can be.
Remove Negativity from Yourself Emotionally
1.) Think positively, things will change
Whatever is going on in your life at the moment that is bringing you down, just remember it is temporary. You will get through this and overcome it. Although this negativity may feel like it will last forever, it will not. You are strong.
2.) Buy a journal
Get a journal to write in daily, or when you are feeling that negativity creep in. Write down what is going on your life and why you think you’re feeling this way. I can’t tell you how much this helps to go into yourself for some introspection and actually figure out what is going on. It will bring you to a realization and you will see how to change it.
3.) Recite daily affirmations
Having a daily affirmation that you can recite when you’re feeling down helps immensely. It can be anything that helps you remain in the positive. A mantra, a quote, or even just a sentence that re-invokes you with confidence. I like to make a list of things that I am worried about, and turn them into positives. Then, for my last sentence, I will end it with a positive note on myself. After, I take a deep breath and recite the list until I feel the confidence grow inside of me. And, I repeat it until I believe it to be the truth. Know that all things are possible if you remain positive.
4.) Get away from toxic people / environments
Remove Negativity from Yourself Spiritually
1.) Cleanse your home
2.) Cleanse yourself
Sometimes cleansing your home isn’t quite enough, and you need to be cleansed as well. There are many ways to remove the negativity from yourself, and they all start with visualization.
Just like cleansing your home, you can also use the smoke of White Sage or Palo Santo to remove negativity from yourself.
Another way to remove negativity, is through water. When you take a shower, close your eyes and imagine the negative energies and darkness litterally being washed away from you. Standing in the rain or a waterfall are also beautifully natural ways to let the water flow around you.
Selenite is a wonderful stone that is connected to the angelic realm, and helps remove stagnant energy. You can use a Selenite wand to move around your body to unblock energy, and remove negativity. In doing so, it also instills a deep peace.
3.) Collect crystals / stones that dispel negativity
- Amethyst – one oldest protection amulet, for overall protection.
- Turquoise – another one of the oldest protection amulets.
- Smoky Quartz – transmutes negative energies.
- Black Tourmaline – pushes all negativity away.
Don’t let negativity hold you down or keep you from living the life of your dreams. You can get past this hump, even though it may seem impossible at first. Remember that you always have family and friends to help guide and support you as well.
