3 Ways to Get Rid of Negative Energy
Trying to understand where our energy derives from and what we can do to control it is a process that requires patience and awareness. We all go through things, we all handle situations differently, and we certainly are surrounded by environments that we may not have had a choice in. So, how do we cope with it all? What is a good remedy for feeling good in our own skin?
Negative energy can be associated with fear, experiences, society, or even self-doubt. Now, to calm those thoughts down, we can either say them out loud, or write them down as they come. Either way, we must acknowledge what we feel because our feelings are true and valid.
Now, let’s heal. Healing takes time; it doesn’t look the same for everyone, and it shouldn’t be compared to anyone else’s journey or process. Here are 3 ways to get rid of any negative feelings:
- After creating your list, ask yourself why you still keep them around, why you believe that there is truth to their words, and how you are going to move forward.
- Then, write another list of everyone who lifts you up, supports you, adds value, and brings peace to your life. Then, ask yourself how you might be allowing toxic people to overshadow the healthy ones.
- If your thoughts are stemming from not having anyone around, then ponder on how you can meet people who share the same morals, dreams, and hobbies. Seek those out!
- Change is a scary thing, but it can lead to a better life perspective.
2. Setting healthy boundaries and practicing saying “no” more in any sort of relationship is a necessary step towards moving forward.
I think we underestimate how powerful this is; if something or someone doesn’t align with your energy then don’t allow them to enter.
- As silly as it may sound, start saying “no” even if it’s for no reason. We sometimes get dragged into doing things because we feel guilty or fear upsetting the person. The more we practice the simplicity in this, the more beneficial it will be.
- Think about what you will and won’t tolerate; set boundaries according to this. For example: You can start by saying, “I’m okay with hanging out, but not today.”
- It’s okay for boundaries to change over time as we grow. You deserve to be loved and respected, so think twice before allowing just anyone to enter your life. Don’t settle for less.
3. Adding a meditation practice to your routine, either in a safe space in your home or surrounded by nature, can help your mind and body connect on a different level.
- With simple breathing techniques and positive affirmations you can train your brain to release tension and overwhelming thoughts.
- Meditation can help you set intentions in the present moment, while shedding the pressure of your past away.
- This practice allows you to take time to acknowledge any negative emotions that are draining you, and opens up space to ask yourself the hard questions. Pause to listen to the answers you’re seeking.
- Meditation is known to relieve the body’s stress response associated with bad energy.
