3. Smudging

Another popular means of removing negative energy from spaces and from the mind is through a process called smudging. Smudging involves burning a certain natural substance and allowing the smoke and your positive thoughts to dispel negative energy. Shamans and indigenous people around the world have used this method for thousands of years to remove negative energy. People employ a wide variety of substances to smudge with, but the most popular are perhaps sage, sweet grass, sage mixed with other herbs such as lavender or chamomile, incense, and cedar.

 

4.  Learn to Focus

If you feel that you have become unfocused or “scatterbrained” lately, this can leave you susceptible to negative energy. Remember that if you don’t take control of your mind, someone, or something, else will do it for you. It’s not as hard as you think. Focusing is really a matter of practice. Pay attention to the little things in your life, the things that make you feel good. The funny thing is; the more you look for, and notice, the good things in your life, the more good things you will find in your life.

 

5. All You Need Is Visualization

No one has probably ever told you this, but you have an innate ability to protect yourself from any energy that is not good for you. All you really need is to visualize it. There are many ways to do this but some of the easiest methods are:

  • Take two or three minutes before you head out of the house in the morning and imagine yourself in a big bubble. Only you can reach out and interact or pull in the things you want, while the things you don’t want are left outside where they can’t touch you.
  • Imagine that your clothes are actually a mirror, reflecting bad energy away from you, but projecting positive energy to all you meet.
  • You can also ask a guardian spirit or a spirit animal to walk with you and protect you from negative energy. Carry a small symbol of this spirit (such as a medallion or a small animal carving or a feather) to remind you that you are protected and give thanks to that spirit for protection.

You don’t want to become disconnected from society and the human race; you are only looking to shield yourself from negative energy.
