How To Get Rid Of Negative Energy in Relationships
We all have them. Those people in your lives that are surfing alongside your positivity. They are attracted to your uplifted mood and personality. Clinging on to you and sucking you dry. When their desires cloud their mind many people don’t really think about the effect it has on other people.
In my opinion, positivity has actually become a little bit like an addiction. Everybody wants it in their lives because it makes you feel good… Great even. Does this sound familiar? Here are some ways on how to get rid of negative energy in relationships, empowering yourself with positive vibes and healthy bonds.
Remove Undesired Relationships
It might sound a bit harsh but you have to remove a toxic relationship from your life. There is no method where this is done nicely or pleasantly. But it can be done respectfully. Be honest and clear to the person you are talking with. We all have our own ways of making our message clear.
Small white lies are hidden in everyday conversations. These little lies will in the end always lead up to bigger ones. Simply put, lying creates negative energy. You want people to be open with you right? Showing your true colors will allow them to trust you and feel comfortable around you. This, in turn, leads to a more meaningful friendship/relationship.
If you don’t comfortable with what they say to you let them know. If their comments cross a line or you feel judged you have the right to confront them and share how you feel. True friendship will show love and respect. Respectfully choosing for yourself will always be the right choice.
Live By Example
Find the people you wish to be surrounded with, by projecting that image onto yourself. Positivity attracts positivity. The ones that make you feel empowered and special should overpopulate your life. In time the negative relationships will fade.
Taking the steps to help someone in need is admirable, to say the least. However, when your friends are in a ditch and you want to help them out you must consider your own standing first. Are your thoughts and intentions clear? Do you have enough positivity/energy to see this through? If it becomes a burden for you then it will become one for the other person as well. Think twice about how you can help and always do so within your means.
More importantly is that whatever you decide you have to make the choice thoughtfully and move forward. Regretting choices you have made will always result in negativity. Read here how to always make a thoughtful decision.
How To Get Rid Of Negative Energy in The Body
There are many ways negative energy can manifest in your body. Having a healthy diet might help you to remove most externally brought in toxins but tackling your inner demons require other methods. If you feel like you’re twice your weight or have twitching muscles try a few of these techniques and free yourself of unwanted stress that holds you back from your true potential.
Instead of taking a walk we choose to make our body active and allow our blood to pump. Take a deep breath and just run in any direction. Allow yourself to breathe in the incredible healing energy of the surroundings and its abundance of oxygen. Be sure to take some moments to slow down and walk at your own pace to recover. Taking the time to notice the incredible miracles of life that surrounds you.
If you feel stressed or anxious, deep breathing is a simple and easy way to restore your mind-body-spirit to a place of peace and tranquility. Inhale positivity and exhale negativity. It’s that simple. Focus on the area’s which have too much energy whilst you inhale and send the energy out or away from that area when you exhale.
This is a form of meditation in which you lay down and allow yourself to be guided through a process of releasing tension in your body. Check on youtube for more than plentiful options. Try to find one which you feel comfortable listing to and start to experience total relaxation and stress release.
Dance Like No One Is Watching
Everyone can dance. Turn up the volume and move to your favorite dance beats. Shaking off that heavy feeling is much easier than you think. Dance uplifts the soul and allows the body to feel free. We do this – no kidding – at least 2/3 times a week. So much fun!
Water has healing powers by itself, let alone when you combine it with Himalayan sea salt or Epsom salt. It makes your bath even more restorative. Add 2-4 pieces of Himalayan salt rocks/a cup of Epsom salt to your bath and a few drops of your favorite essential oils. Let your body soak for at least 30 minutes for it to absorb all the healing properties. Here some inspring words to ignite that self-love.
Your body is your temple and keeping it functional, healthy and strong should be a top priority for you. You only have one in this life so make sure you treat it with the love and affection it deserves.

How To Get Rid Of Negative Energy in The Mind
We can’t really think that all these parts of our being are just working separately right? Each has an effect on the other. Cause and effect. Balancing them is key to a healthy lifestyle.
I.e. You carry more responsibility than you can handle, the weight on your shoulders get’s heavier, your body has less energy and you are prone to physical ailments. It’s not rocket science to see what the effects are of negative energy. However, have we fully accepted that we are the cause of our own suffering…?
To truly accept that we have to start by being honest, painfully honest. You simply cannot move forward if you choose to lie to yourself about what you are thinking.
Face Your Fears
Many of us let fear and anxiety impair our ability to move forward and achieve the things that will bring happiness into our lives. Fear is not a negative thing perse. It is actually a trigger to let you know what requires some extra attention. Become aware of what your fears are and take steps to challenge them head-on. Imagine the empowerment you will experience once you conquer them. You will surpass your limiting beliefs and your confidence will rise.

I know you have heard this too many times! But for one simple reason. It works! There are many different types of meditations you can try such as yoga, breathing, body scans, focus points you name it. The goal here is to spend some time on a daily basis, clearing your mind, ridding it of negative thoughts and refocusing it on those that are positive.
Follow Your Passion
Enjoying the things you love allows you to feel positive, happy and joyful. Submerging yourself into a passion will make you forget your negative thoughts in no time. Not only is it fun but it is a necessity to give yourself the time to do what you love. You are in control of your own happiness.

Train your perception
Become the master of your own destiny. The more negatively we think, the more negative things we will perceive. It is a state of mind we choose to put ourselves in. However, the more positive we are and the more we believe in ourselves, the more positive things will seem to come along our path. The worst situations will always have a lesson in store for you. Learning equals growth and is positive. The choice is yours.
Ok, this one might be harsh but I want you to be bluntly honest with yourself. No beating around the bush. Write down pros and con’s about your behavior, feelings or thought patterns. Do they benefit you? Yes, add it to you “to keep” list, No? in the “discard” list. Create a clear overview of whats in your head. If writing is not your thing use voice recording. You’d be surprised how well things will fall into place when you hear yourself talk. Become your own friend and help that person in need.
Doing mind work requires some dedication. You need to handle much more baggage and negative associations. Like everything it’s a process. Don’t be discouraged if you do not succeed to change things in this instant. You are working toward undoing your old patterns which you have built up for years.
If it would be simple you would not experience the benefit of change.

How To Get Rid Of Negative Energy in The Environment
Your surroundings can have a huge impact on how you go about your day. Be it the community where you live, in and around the city center or at school, you will be influenced by everything and everyone around you. How do you handle all these external energies? If you are an HSP this will make things even more complicated.

Love Where You Live
No matter where you live it is important to love it as you would love yourself. The energy we carry as an individual is reflected outwards. Show your positive view of the community and your neighborhoods might do the same. If anything distasteful has happened which will not allow you to experience a positive outlook in your surroundings it might be a good option to move.
Take Positive Action
Help an older citizen with their groceries. Do some charity work. Get involved with a non-profit. Getting involved in philanthropic programs makes a positive impact on the world around you, ultimately making you feel positive about yourself and about life.
Become Aware of Energy
Now, what do I mean with this…? It might sound a bit fictional to you but you’d be surprised how much energy someone can give you just based on their state of mind. If someone is angry you feel an urge to stay away from this person right? Just like if someone becomes violent you keep your distance.
Negative energy is something that you can feel around you without it necessarily being directed at you.
Call it a gut feeling if you will, but in the end, it all points to simply wanting to avoid anything that makes you feel uncomfortable. Sadly you cannot always choose to leave and you must deal with all those nasty vibes. In that case…
Create a Barrier or Let The Energy Flow Past You
Think of a bubble of around 50cm that surrounds your body. Inside you are safe and your energy is in control. Nothing from outside will be allowed to penetrate your barrier. It is your safe zone. Being aware of your surroundings and not letting it affect you takes time but is worth the commitment. You can also choose to visualize the negative energy passing you, flowing straight into the ground. This is also a method many people find working well for them.
It is hard not to get affected by others but whatever the case try to be yourself! Be the example. You live your life by the standards which you want to receive. You have the immense power of influence. Use it the right way and you can make incredible changes.
Transforming negative into positive can be a lengthy process. However, the rewards are life-changing! There is a lot of information to digest so take your time and read it through a few times. As always, feel free to save on your self-growth Pinterest board. Thank you for supporting Nomadsoulzz.
