However, these 7 ways to bring positive energy into your life will help you dispel these negative thoughts so you can experience life in a more optimistic light.
7 Ways to Bring Positive Energy Into Your Life
Let's discover how to bring positive energy into our lives by cleansing our homes, our minds, and our lives....
Cleanse Your Home
One of the easiest ways to start bringing positive energy into your life is to make simple changes in your home. Here are three ways to do that...
Remove Negative Energy
Home is where the heart is, so it stands to reason that one of the best ways to bring positive energy into your life is to cleanse your home of negative energy.
This may seem like a huge undertaking, but spiritually cleansing your home is often quite simple and can even serve as a meditative and calming act.
There are several different methods used to cleanse a home of negative energy. You can use all of these or any of them:
- Locate Negative Energy - Start by locating the source of negative energy. Oftentimes, negative energy will gather and become trapped in the corners of a room. You'll know where negative energy is because it will make you feel on edge.
- Get Air Flowing - Open all doors and windows in your house to get air to flow through your home.
- Sound Healing - Then, ring a bell three times in each room to create a pathway through which the negative energy can flow from your house.
- Smudging Sticks - Next, pass through each room with a smudging stick to remove any lingering negative energy and replace it with more positive and pure energy.
- Amethyst Geodes - Place an amethyst geode in any place that tends to collect negative energy in your home. It will work to keep positive energy in that space.
It may seem minor, but tidying up your home will go a long way in clearing out negative energy. A cluttered environment often leads to a cluttered mind and it’s in this chaotic atmosphere that negative energy can grow.
Taking the time to clear your home of any unnecessary items will help create a more open space that will in turn foster more peaceful energy.
- Start by removing any visible messes that may be dirtying the space.
- Create an organization system for items you use frequently.
- Bid farewell to items that no longer have a purpose in your life - these items tie you to the past and may harbor negative energies.
- Opening the windows and letting fresh air into your home will also help cleanse the space of any malicious energy that may remain.
Feng Shui Your Space
Feng shui is a traditional Chinese metaphysical method that people have practiced for hundreds of years. This practice focuses on organizing a space according to invisible forces that bind the universe together.
Feng shui separates each building and room into nine different sections, each corresponding with a different aspect of life. Organizing your space according to these different sectors, which form a Bagua map, will help you recognize the importance of each sector in your daily life and set an intention for each.
Arranging your home according to traditional feng shui principles creates better communication and cohesion between all aspects of your life. This allows you to move forward with more peaceful and positive energy.
Cleanse Your Mind
If we aren't thinking right, positivity cannot flourish. Use these tips to cleanse your mind. It's one of the best ways to bring positive energy into your life.
Meditation is one of the most popular ways to clear your mind and invite positive energy into your life. For those just beginning, meditation can often seem quite daunting, but it is actually a very simple and extremely personal practice.
During your meditation practice, think critically about the energies you surround yourself with and the energies you emit yourself. This will help you better recognize the aspects of your life that may produce a negative impact and the steps you can take toward correcting them.
Meditating alongside certain healing stones, such as a giant amethyst geode, can also help protect you from psychic attacks and encroaching negative thoughts. As such, you’ll be able to achieve a more blissful meditative state as you work toward a more positive outlook on life.
Don’t Dwell on the Negative
As you move through life, you’re likely to encounter your fair share of negative circumstances. Though these events may trip you up momentarily, it’s important that you don’t focus all your time and energy on them.
Dwelling on these unfortunate events will send you into a spiral of negative thoughts which will then manifest themselves in various other aspects of your life.
Rather than consternating over these moments, take a moment to assess the event objectively. Think critically about the event in question and try to find the silver lining in the situation—every moment in our lives is a learning experience.
Thinking critically about your responses during a particularly trying time will better equip you to deal with similar situations in the future. It will also help you achieve a more positive outlook when faced with trying times.
Cleanse Your Life
Aside from cleansing your home and your mind, there are some other ways to bring more positive energy into your life. Here are two of our favorites...
On some occasions, negative energies may come from an external source. Removing toxicity from your life, therefore, is one of the best ways to forge a path toward positivity.
Unfortunately, removing toxicity is often easier said than done. While it may be difficult to cut off a toxic frenemy or say goodbye to a job that leaves you emotionally drained, you’ll feel better in the long run.
Replacing these sources of negative energy with people and hobbies that invite light and happiness into your life will help you lead a more positive life.
Do What You Love
There’s a well known saying that states, “Do what you love, and the money will follow.” However, a more correct statement might be, “Do what you love, and joy and love will follow.”
Setting aside time in your daily schedule to focus on things that bring you joy will help you view life in a more positive light. Plus, it will better enable you to see all the beauty the world has to offer.
Spending time with the people you love and engaging in activities you find emotionally healing will help bring more positive energy into your life. That way, you’ll have the intrinsic motivation needed to achieve your goals.
