Sometimes, when you step into a room or a certain space, it just feels different and not in a good way. People find it hard to explain that there is something in that space that’s either disturbing them or making them feel uncomfortable. This is the kind of effect negative energies can have on you. Fortunately, it’s not too difficult to cleanse negative energy and turn it into a vibrant positive space. Here are 6 ways to do it.
1. Spray Epsom Salt And Essential Oil Mix
Essential oils are a great way to transform a negative space into a positive one. Aromas have a powerful influence on you and have the ability to change the way you experience your surroundings. Using Epsom salts, you can make homemade essential oil spray bottles with almost zero effort.
First, select either one or a combination of essential oils. Once you have your oils ready, all you need now is a spray bottle, Epsom salt, and distilled or filtered water.
Add 2 tablespoons of Epsom salt to 1 cup of water, and pour into spray bottle
Add 15 to 25 drops of your chosen essential oils into the bottle
Mix the salt and oil together
Top the mixture up with water
Shake well and spray away on linens in the room
2. Diffuse Essential Oils
Although the scientific research to support diffusing essential oils is limited, studies so far appear to be promising. Some studies suggest that aromatherapy can improve sleep and relieve anxiety or depression. Currently, researchers have concluded that aromatherapy method cannot yet be considered a legitimate anxiety treatment. They can, however, help you change your mood and fill positivity into your house or room. Different essential oils have different effects. Go for essential oils of ylang ylang, lavender, or bergamot for a calming effect.
3. Burn Sage
Smudging is an ancient ritual that involves burning herbs and plant resins for both medicinal and spiritual use. It can help combat negativity, clear the energy in your field, and help you start anew. Smudging your sacred space, your home or office, or even your body with sage is like taking an energetic shower. Some people stay away from smudging because they think inhaling smoke is bad. However, a 2006 study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology studied the effects of herbal and non-herbal remedies. Researchers found that inhaling medicinal ”ambient smoke” actually helped with skin, respiratory, and brain health.
4. Play Soothing Music
Music is the universal language that connects all human beings. Scientists have discovered the entire universe is nothing but vibrating energy. This probably why music has a profound influence on people. When researchers at the Mindlab International in the UK ran an experiment to find the effects of music on anxiety, they found that the song ‘Weightless’ by Marconi Union reduced participants’ levels of overall anxiety by 65 percent. Go by your own instincts and look for tracks that help you relax. Play them whenever you find negativity around you or within you.
5. Create A Meditation Space
There is nothing more effective at infusing positive energy into your life than meditation and mindfulness practices. There are different meditation techniques you can opt from based on what your goal is or how you respond. Many studies have also found evidence that meditation can help lower blood pressure and inflammation, as well as help anxiety, depression, and insomnia. To make meditation a regular practice, create a small meditation zone or nook in your room. All you need is a floor pillow or yoga mat. You can even burn incense or use an essential oil diffuser to get into you calm zone.
6. Use Salt Lamps Or Crystals
As of now, scientists have not been able to quantify the effects of salt lamps on the human mind and body. But there are enough testimonies by people who have used salt lamps and found that they have a positive effect. While scientists write it off saying it could be a placebo effect, if a salt lamp can help you feel better, there’s no harm in trying it. As an added benefit, Himalayan salt lamps also look stunning and will add to your decor.
