Is your home feeling a little less like home lately?
Maybe it just isn't giving you the comfortable feeling you expect from your home anymore. Or maybe you can feel the heavy energy that has taken up residence in your home.
Whatever it is, it happens to everyone. There are so many reasons negative energy gets stuck in our homes. All it means is that we need some energy cleansing, and amethyst is one of the best ways to do it.
What Are the Signs of Negative Energy in a House?If you've been experiencing any of the following, there is likely stuck energy in your home:
- You experience unwelcoming feelings in your home, possibly in certain areas
- Family members are fighting a lot
- You always feel on edge when you are at home
- The energy in the house feels heavy, and you feel a lot lighter when you step outside
- You always feel drained in your home
- People in your home are sick or depressed
- You feel like you're always having bad luck
- Your home has a lot of clutter, as a result of unfinished tasks
- Life in your home feels chaotic
- You are experiencing stress, negativity, frustration, complaining, criticizing, resentment, or rage
- You are having relationship issues
- You are having financial issues
- Your pets seem anxious or your plants are dying
- Your appliances are breaking
- You just don't generally feel good when you are in your home
As you can see, there so many different ways negative energy gets stuck in your home. But if you still aren't sure, there is always the glass water test:
How to Use the Glass Water Test to Locate Negative Energy in Your Home?Water responds according to positive and negative energy. This phenomenon has been demonstrated in the book Hidden Messages in Water by Masaru Emoto, who used high-speed photography to capture the changes that took place in frozen water crystals based on whether or not it was exposed to loving words.
In the same way, we can use a simple water glass test to determine if our homes contain stuck negative energy. Here are the steps:
- Choose a translucent glass that shows no wear and tear and is clean and sparkling (wear gloves when handling the glass to avoid fingerprints).
- Add sea salt to one-third of the glass.
- Add white wine vinegar to two-thirds of the glass. Do not mix.
- Add tap water until the glass is full. Do not mix.
- Hide the glass in a room that seems to hold the most negative energy. Make sure it won't be found by other family members.
- Check the glass in 24 hours. If the contents in the glass turn color, instead of being clear, then you've located negative energy.
- Based on your results, you can repeat this process in other rooms to locate where the negative energy is located in your home.

Why Amethyst Helps Change the Energy in the Home?
Amethyst is one of the best crystals to use for removing negative energy in the home. It provides a gentle protective energy that transforms negative energy into positive energy.
Here are some of the key reasons we love amethyst for removing negative energy in the home:
Amethyst Transmutes Negative Energy Into LoveThis is my favorite quality of amethyst. Love is, after all, the highest frequency energy that exists. Having an amethyst geode in your home replaces all the yuckiness of life with pure love and harmony. What more could anyone ask for?
Just think of it! Here's what that really means:
- Amethyst transforms negative thoughts into positive ones.
- It neutralizes arguments, and brings understanding and compassion.
- It turns depression into contentedness.
- It mends relationships.
- It wards off ill wishes and negative actions.
- It improves all negative emotions.
- And so much more.
How does it do this? Basically, amethyst raises the vibration of everything, everyone, and all energy it comes into contact with. When that happens, we feel happier, we feel more emotionally complete, we see the good in everything, and everything flows into place.
Amethyst Protects Against Negative Emotions
Amethyst helps soothe and balance negative emotions, so it's great to have in your home when you or your family are dealing with emotional turmoil, or if you just feel a little emotionally unbalanced.
Amethyst Protects Against Psychic Attack
If you feel like you've been under emotional attack, amethyst is one of the best crystals to turn to. It can shield you against ill wishes from others and negative thoughts about you.
How to Remove Negative Energy in Your Home With Amethyst?
When the energy in your home has turned negative, there are some simple steps you can use to remove it with amethyst.
NOTE: We are listing 5 steps here, which all work together to produce incredible results when it comes to removing negativity in your house, however if you want a simpler solution, all you need to do is bring an amethyst geode into your home (the larger the geode, the more area it will cover). The additional steps help further purify the space, but aren't necessary because amethyst is such a powerful negative energy buster.
1) Clear the Energy With Sage
This step can add a level of cleansing that makes this whole process more effective. It's optional because amethyst will clear the negative energy for you, but it can do a better job when it doesn't have such a heavy layer of negative energy to work through.
Start by performing a simple energy cleansing ritual in your entire house to promote a healthy energy that can better receive the energy of amethyst.
To do this, you can use the smoke of burning sage to remove the heaviness and negativity in the house. Sage has been used for thousands of years, especially by Native Americans, to neutralize energy. You can use a sage smudge stick to do this.
NOTE: Sage will clear both negative and positive energy because it neutralizes all energy. To clear negative energy and bring in positive energy, you can use palo santo instead, although it's not really necessary because the amethyst will bring in the positive for you.
2) Place Your Amethyst
Now, you can bring in your amethyst geode and it can work to maintain the purity you've created in your home with the sage. Use your intuition to guide you when it comes to placing your amethyst in your home, or use one of the placement methods we discuss below in the "How to Shield Your Home With Amethyst Protection" section.
3) Clear Your Amethyst
If your amethyst geode is already in your home and it's no longer cleansing the environment, use one of the methods in this article to clear your amethyst. Clear your amethyst on a regular basis or after deep healing work, an illness, or a fight.
Clutter is a sign that stuck energy exists because it blocks the flow of energy. To maintain the work of the sage and the amethyst, go through your home and declutter. Once you do, you will immediately notice a shift in energy as it is allowed to flow freely through your home.
To further purify the energy in your home, meditate next to your amethyst geode. This will serve to magnify the energy of the amethyst, especially if you imagine the purifying energy of the amethyst pulsing outward, filling your entire house and shielding it in protection.
Our thoughts are powerful. They are energy, just as the frequency of amethyst is energy, so they can be used to amplify the healing power of amethyst.
How to Shield Your Home With Amethyst Protection?In the ancient art of feng shui, there are several popular ways to use amethyst in the home to remove negative energy:
- Place an amethyst by each of the doors in your house to protect negative energy from entering.
- Place an amethyst in each corner of the home to shield the house in protective energy.
- Amethyst is extremely helpful at removing negative energy from children's rooms. Just place it on a nightstand in their room.
- Place amethyst under your bed or pillow or on your nightstand to help ward off negative dreams and worries that keep you from enjoying a good night's sleep.
