How to Get Rid of Negative Energies

Negative Energies

Getting rid of bad energy is important if you want to be healthy and strong. If you live in a place where you are always dealing with negative energy, you need to learn to get rid of it and learn to clear your space.

Everyone has different energy and even our own energy can become stale. We might get stuck in emotions and in stress. We might have past life things that are holding us back or relationships that are not helping us.

Getting Rid of Negative Energies

One way that you can get rid of negative energies is by smudging. This means that you burn a plant such as sage and you use the smoke throughout your home.

This will clear your energy. So, if you feel stuck in life or if you are feeling negative, you need to smudge your home to get rid of this energy.

Maybe you have had negative people in your home, or you have had a fight with someone. Smudging is one way that you can clear your environment and make it strong for you.

One thing that you can do is to clear your energy once a week. Doing this can get rid of negative energy that you didn’t know was even there.

It is important when you smudge that you walk through your whole house. You should smudge the areas that have the most people in them more and you should always do the corners and even the rooms that people don’t use.

Energy can get stuck in the doorways so pay attention to the areas that you work. The spirit world can go to any part of your house.

Pay attention to what you are doing and how you are feeling. If you have strong emotions or negativity, you need to sage your house longer. Make sure that you keep your home strong and safe.

You can even use herbs that are organic and high quality, but you don’t have to.


Sage is a smoked weed, and it has an earthly smell. This is a feminine energy, and you can even use sage to cook with. Some people use white sage when smudging their homes.

Sage can help to heal and help to give you clarity if you are stuck in some way. It can also get rid of negative energy and bacteria in your home.

Palo Santo

If you don’t want to use sage, use Palo Santo. This is a masculine energy and smells like pine and lemon. It can be used to sage your home and is sometimes called a holy stick.

You need to choose whatever smudging herb that you want to use. You can use different ones like myrrh or frankincense or citrus things. Do whatever you want to use and use it to purify your home and to be more aware of your surroundings.

How to Cleanse Your Home

The first thing that you do is to open the windows and the doors so that the energy that is negative can leave that way. You must give it a way to get out.

Imagine that you are putting chemicals in your home and you need to make sure that they cover the whole house. Make sure that you don’t just do small spaces but that you do any space that will have toxic energies. Give a place for the energy to go.


Always prepare yourself for lighting something on fire. Have a way to get the fire out. If something goes wrong, make sure that you put the fire out immediately.

When you burn herbs, you are creating an energy field.

What to Wear

You can wear black because if you hold the herbs close to your body it can cause you to get spots on your shirts. When you do this as a ritual, you want to make sure that you are not allowing anything to stick to you or to stick to the person that is smudging their home.

Speak to the spirits and energy and tell them to leave.

Light It

Light the sage or the Palo Santo and let it burn at a 45-degree angle. If the embers fall, do not let them catch fire.

Go room to room and hold it against the surface so that it can fill the room.


Walk around the house and clearing the space and fan the smoke. Allow it to fill every room. When you see the glow, keep it off the carpet.

If you are clearing energy off a person, make sure not to get the smoke in their eyes but cover their whole being. Put your hair back so it doesn’t catch on fire and when you smudge someone make them close their eyes.


Say a positive mantra when you are saging your house such as, “Get rid of any energy that is not of love. Go out the window or the door.”

Turn Out the Lights

Turn out the lights and go around your house. Let the smoke fill your house. You can see it better when the lights are out.

Other Ideas

If you don’t want to use smoke, you can always use a sage spray and spray it all over your home.

Preventing Toxic Energy

You can use ones such as Onyx or Hematite.
