5 Ways to Completely Clear Negative Energy

Have you ever wished you could just completely clear your life of all the negative energy and start with a fresh, clean slate?

Well, you can. Right now, you have the ability to clear negative energy from your body and your home with just a few simple things. In fact, these tips I am going to share with you I personally use on a daily or weekly basis, depending on how I feel.

Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about myself. In fact, I’ve completely transformed my life. I’ve really gotten to know what defines me and who I am. One core trait is that I have a very caring and sensitive nature. This sensitivity allows me to be very intuitive,  compassionate, and understanding toward others. At the same time, unless I protect myself I can absorb their energy – positive and negative.

Just like bugs are drawn to an outdoor light at night,  negative energy seeks the light. It wants to be transformed. So, the closer to the light you are the more negative energy you may come in contact with.

Without protection, negativity can flank you at all sides and rob you of your happiness. No one is immune. This can cause depression, anxiety, and many other mental and physical diseases. Negative energy feeds just like positive energy.

Cleansing your energy is also a great way to keep your unique energy intact. What I mean is, when you come in contact with a lot of people or find yourself in a crowd you actually exchange energy, whether you consciously know it or not. With that being said, it’s very important as you are making your way along this positive lifestyle journey that you protect yourself and cleanse when you aren’t feeling… well, yourself.

Let me share with you five things I personally do and I have found extremely effective.  Some I have picked up and been using over the years consistently as part of my positive lifestyle, but a few I learned from my mentor Deborah King, a well-known expert on Energy Healing.

 5 Ways to Completely Cleanse Negative Energy

1. Fresh Air & Sunshine

Fresh air and sunshine have incredible cleansing powers. As the wind blows through your hair and the warm kiss of the sunbeams on your face, the energy of nature will always make you feel anew.  So if the weather permits, open up your windows or take a walk outside.  Feel the cleansing air enter your lungs as you breathe in, then exhale the negative energy and repeat.

2. Smudging

Smudging has been a heritage from the times of my Indian ancestors.  To smudge, you light a rolled stick of sage, set the intention of what you are going to cleanse (your home, body, an object, etc.) and fan the sage lightly.  If you are at home, open the windows to release negative energy as it is cleansed.

3. Salt

Salt Rock Lamps – The beauty and tranquility of the lamp allow individuals to focus on positive energies which allow them to heal mentally and physically. It is also believed that Himalayan Salt Rocks transfer the negative ions in the air.

Salt Around the borders of your home – Sea salt placed around the borders of your windows, doors, and house have been known to ward off incoming negative energy and cleanse

4. The “BLISS” Bath

This is my favorite! I created this term “BLISS” Bath because it’s exactly how I feel during and afterward. We all need more bliss in our life, right?  Afterwards I feel clean, centered and refreshed.  If you take it in the evening, it makes for a great nights sleep too.

BLISS stands for: Baking soda, Lavender oil, Intention & Sea Salt.

There are many baking soda and sea salt bath detox recipes, but here’s mine.

Cleanse Negative Energy with a Bliss Bath:

Add to warm/hot water, as hot as you can comfortably stand.

1/2 lb of Baking Soda
A few drops of Eden’s Garden Lavender Oil
Positive Intention
1/2 lb of Sea Salt


It is safe to double the recipe for your first time or when you feel that you REALLY need a deep cleanse. I have done this and it is very effective. However, for regular cleansing, this recipe is very effective.

Overall, it’s a great detox for your energy and your body. If you make it hot enough that you can comfortably stand and stay in it for at least 20 minutes (I usually do 40 minutes), it will draw the toxins out of the body to the skin’s surface as the water cools. This water is very high alkaline (which is so healthy) from the baking soda and re-mineralizing from the sea salt.

A BLISS Bath is an easy way to cleanse negative energy that you suspect you may have picked up. You’ll know this when you aren’t feeling yourself or feeling overwhelmed.

An important thing to do after your bath is to drain the tub and quickly shower off, washing your hair, too. This will ensure that the toxins are completely rinsed off and don’t absorb back into the skin.

Overall, whether you’ve absorbed negative energy or not, this bath is great to cleanse and regard your energy and body. Try it, you’ll feel so refreshed the next day you’ll want to make it a habit.

5. Holy Water Spray

Whether you are religious or not, the truth is Blessed, Holy Water dispels negative energy. It’s been noted consistently through centuries by saints and sages. In fact, it’s use dates back to 15 centuries.

It works well because water is the universal solvent for cleansing. It dissolves chemical compounds, physical and energetic. Holy Water is prized for its properties of blessing and healing.

To obtain Holy Water you can visit a church or buy it online. You can also make your own if you believe in your own abilities to do so.

There are a few ways. First, you can take some pure water and put it in a container. Then leave it out in the sunshine for a few hours. You can then infuse the water with holy basil leaves, flower essences or essential oils. If you believe in the power of prayer,  you can hold your hands over the water and pray over it. Pray for its protection and healing over you and anyone else it comes in contact with.

Once your Holy Water is ready,  put it in a spray bottle and sprinkle it on yourself and around the house. Anywhere you intuitively feel you need to cleanse energy.   Some parents even make it a regular routine to spray holy water on and around their children at night before they go to sleep.

Final Thoughts Cleanse Negative Energy Out of Your Life

These five tips are perfect and very effective for cleansing negative energy, however, the best thing to do is first protect yourself daily. What I like to do is, every morning I envision a bubble of protection around me. I close my eyes and feel the warmth and protection surrounding me. I affirm that it is with me all day.

Here is this space,  my positive energy is protected from seeping out as well as negative energy coming in. If you pray, you can add this extra protection then. The key is truly believing and asking, if you don’t ask, you’ll be found wanting.  This is what I have found to be true. In fact, sometimes if I am going through a challenge, I ask for extra protection and I truly feel it.

When I protect my energy, I feel consistently better. Good luck!

  1. Very rarely do I find an article I can relate with. I found several connections with me upon going through this article.
    Just a fortnight back I went to attend a wedding, where I met several people. While I was there I was going. But once I came back I realized how much energy I have list and replaced with so much negativity. Till date I didn’t know what to do about it, this I sleep for 4 days in a go. I only got out of bed to eat.
    Actually, I’ve always been like this. I enjoy being with people but only if I get My time to recharge myself. Otherwise, there’s a blackout!
    Also, I absorb a lot of negative energy. Whereas, I see most people who are bothered with nothing.
    The rock salt technique and carrying a bubble around oneself are really nice. Thanks for the article. I have liked your page on fb and looking forward to learn a lot from you. Tc. And have a great 2016!!

  2. So important. Great article. All I would like to add is that sometimes, perhaps when we are tired, or we forget to protect ourselves because we do not feel the need with certain people, that lower vibrational energy becomes attached. It is so subtle and you are totally unaware. Suddenly you feel tired, moody, irritable, out of sorts! If you are down for no definable reason it is worth checking it out. If you are unable to clear it find a good auric/light body healer to clear it for you. ?. Sharing with love

  3. I Ask Archangel Michael to clean the energy in me and around me. Also ask him to bless water and put that in in a spray (equevalent to your holy water). Rosewater is very effective. So is asking the angels for Angelrings (fast and works on energies, chakra's and unwanted or fearbased connections. This is just a few options I have in my arsenal.

  4. I LOVE all of these wonderful suggestions and I truly try just about EVERYTHING!!! See, I have been recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia and I am PRAYING for a miracle!! I believe God led me to read this Kristen Butler… PLEASE, if anyone knows how to help me, I would be forever greatful… thank you!

  5. Thank you for this helpful article. As a writer, I couldn't help but several grammatical errors in the article though. Might want to double-check your work before publishing.

    I also use Juniper Berry and Sage essential oil by doTERRA and Young Living to cleanse my aura. Apply to your palms and sweep through your etheric field (just outside your physical body) with "karate chop" motions along your body. I have countless holistic essential oil remedies on my Facebook page at:

  6. Thank you for this article. As I read it I saw myself in every single word. I've been working on my inner self for a very long time. Today I totally love who I am and accept myself completely. I am very sensitive therefore very intuitive. I pick up on all energies and even feelings around me. I've noticed that I attract a lot of weak personalitie and I feel the need to help as much as I can. I love life and all living things. It makes me feel good to be as close as I can to anything that is Earth related as I am a Capricorn and that also influences a lot.

  7. Nice..will try…I chant mantras and they also work wonders..hv water in a copper vessel chant one round of your rosary ..this water can be consumed and sprinkled everywhere in your house and compound..I usually chant Om Namah Shivay..it is awfully powerful.

  8. I use music to help me pump up my energy, while I stoke my aura-energy, getting rid of the negative m, and filling back up with my light. I call it my high pro glow. Usually works best in a hot bath.

  9. Lisa D Shrake It is like out with the old and in with the new… If you have ever had a bad day and went to bed, you could have left your energy there, and having nightmares or night terrors can add more bad energy to your sheets. By changing your sheets ( I like to pray over mine as they are washing that all negative energy will be washed away) you release the energy that was left in them. This will help you to have positive energy in your bed, allowing a better night's sleep and good dreams.

  10. this changing of the sheets is new and intriguing to me , i believe you all that it helps but like lauren ,i just dont understand why . what about it makes sense to you Joy ? destiny can you tell us some of the different things you think this might mean ?

  11. epsom salts are great ! i would like to add that before anyone uses it that they make SURE they read the warnings and directions WELL. As some people should not bath in Epsom salt water for medical reasons .

  12. I'm a chakra and aura cleanser. Most only need a one time session and I protect myself with chakra stones and crystals, energy candles, home grid with stones, and meditate daily with chakra stones. I've contacted my guardian angels and also channel loved ones of mine and others that have passed. I love being positive and connected to the Universe. Also helping others everyday raises your energy vibe.

  13. Blue Eagle Liquid Smudge – A portable and safe alternative to traditional fired smudges
    Traditional smudging can be a problem as it requires combustion (burning) to release the energy of the selected materials. This is usually not permitted in public places (except some churches), and makes it difficult to clear places such as hospital or hospice rooms, public meeting rooms or places, hotel rooms, or just yourself.
    We came upon Blue Eagle's Liquid Smudge – made from essential oils – at least a decade ago and have enjoyed and have come to rely on the benefits that they can offer in dealing with daily and exceptional situations – such as when we moved our mother to a Hospice – a space that became vacant because someone had "transitioned" hours before.
    Originally they had only one product called Invocation – now renamed "Chiiyaam" (a powerful short lasting Male scent) and have recently added a magnificent longer lasting female scent called "Miwah" .
    Learn more by googling "Blue Eagle Liquid Smudge" or get some background info at his blog at http://www.blueeagle1.net/article-invocations-native-essences-116843861.html

  14. Thank you, I would like to express that I believe in the higher power, the Divine, Arcangels and Angels and definately prayer with with true intention, I am Canadian Native and smudging is part of my teachings for purifying firstly myself and what needs to be purified, many blessings send ur way

  15. Joy Johannes Miller and to Lauren Tasker,, "cleansing the sheets can mean different things… Find someone that can add healing energy to infuse your sheets or blankets, In Ohio, Pat Zimmerman is wonderful. She and her mother add healing energy to blankets or objects that you may bring them, like earrings, bathrobes or stuffed animals, for example, and the positive energy does not get washed out! Look into the practice of reiki; be careful that you find someone though that has the most positive intentions. some are just out there for the money.

  16. Thank you for sharing . . . Excellent advice here . I have a question – I am very allergic to lavender – is there a replacement for it for the Bliss bath?

  17. Clean sheets! Sounds weird but I swear it helped me when I was having massive panic attacks after losing my son. I had to change them every two days or they would exacerbate my anxiety. Weird but true.

  18. Great article. Please continue to share your experiences and resources used that will collectively make us better people living in a better world who desire a better future, and if not for us, them our children and future generations….

  19. I use Florida water, Rose water, and Kolonia 1800 water….mix together with some water and rum….throw in some petals from a white flower and white powdered eggshell. Pour over your body once you are done taking a shower. Air dry.
