5 Ways To Cleanse Your Body And Home From Negative Energy

Updated: Oct 17, 2022

All of us experience negative energies that affect us in our day-to-day life, whether it is a stressful situation at work, a bad day, or just being around someone with a bad attitude. At first sight, negative energies don't look dangerous, but they can harm our health as they might cause stress, anxiety, depression, etc. Our bodies process the things we eat and drink while our minds continuously process thoughts and emotions. Regular cleansing of your body and mind helps recharge your system.

Before trying to cleanse any space, clear your own energy first. Just as you regularly wash your body, cleaning the energy attached to you is also essential. Stress, illness, or even painful emotions can put negative energy into your body. Think of it as energy hygiene that should be a daily routine.

Notice how your feelings and energy changes after you arrive and leave your home. If you notice dramatic changes, this is a sign of bad energy in your home. If you have a messy house, you're probably attracting disorganized and chaotic energies to yourself.

When it's important to clear your or your home's energy?

  • When you're having a bad day

  • When dealing with a breakup or loss

  • When you feel sick or without energy

  • When you are dealing with toxic people

  • When you are feeling stuck in your life

  • When you are going through significant life events

If you want to attract more positivity to your life, consider using these ways to clear negative energy from your home or body. Getting in the habit of removing the negative energy that surrounds you will make your space feel lighter and more creative.

How to cleanse your space and body from negative energy?


One of the oldest energy cleansing practices is smudging with dried white sage or Palo Santo. Smudging is burning sacred herbs and using the smoke to cleanse your aura and energies. To do this, you can use any herbs, including sage, cedar, and thyme.

The smudging ritual is a great way to clear out the negativity around your house and body.

Ring a bell

One of the quickest and easiest ways to clear out bad energy is by ringing a bell. The sound vibrates through your entire place and releases negativity. Tibetan singing bowls are excellent for clearing out bad vibes and welcoming positive influences.

Use crystals

Many people use healing crystals to cleanse and protect their bodies and homes. Protective gemstones such as Obsidian, Amethyst, Black Tourmaline, Tiger's Eye, and Citrine block harmful vibrations and clear negative energy. You can place them around your home or wear them as jewelry. Do not forget to charge & set the intention to your crystal before usage.

Cleanse energy using visualization & meditation

Meditating helps us connect to our higher self and intuition. Also help us release stress and anxiety, which can improve our mood.

How to cleanse your energy using visualization:

  1. Sit quietly and focus on your breath.

  2. As you breathe in, visualize white light filling every part of your entire body.

  3. Visualize this light as pure, peaceful energy that fills every inch of space surrounding you.

  4. As you exhale, imagine black smoke leaving your body and energy field.

  5. Visualize the smoke flowing and dissolving into the earth or the sky.

  6. Visualize this white light flowing through every cell until you feel cleansed.

  7. Repeat this exercise until you feel lighter inside.

Cleanse negative energies with salt

Salt has been used to sterilize since ancient times, and it also clears negative energy.

How you can use salt for spiritual cleanse?

  • Dissolve sea salt in a spray bottle filled with water and mist the air of every room.

  • Place a thin line of sea salt in front of your home's entrance.

  • Take long cleansing baths with sea salt & herbs.

  • You might use Himalayan salt lamps.

Take the time to reflect after each session. If you're new to cleansing, start slowly and experiment with all of the cleansing practices. After some time, you will build up your own cleansing routine.
