Do you sometimes feel like someone’s bad vibes affect your mood and health? Or perhaps there are some places where you simply hate going because you feel like they are full of negative energy.
While there isn’t much you can do about the negative energy surrounding people and places, you can at least take a few measures to attract positive energy into your home when your home feels like a welcoming, comfortable and happy place to live in, and your energy is sure to become more positive as well.
Learn how to bring positive energy into your home with nine simple tips.
1. Declutter your home regularly
If you want a boost of positive energy, get rid of the clutter! Make sure positive energy can flow freely through your home.
Get rid of any item you don’t need or haven’t used in over a year. Above all, get rid of any object you don’t like or any item linked to bad memories. You don’t need any reminder of a stressful experience or a toxic past relationship in your home.
2. Get rid of dust and cobwebs
To get rid of the negative energy in your home and attract positive energy instead, keep your home clean. Living in a clean home is a source of pride and joy and helps surround yourself with positive vibes.
Don’t allow dust bunnies and cobwebs to settle down in your home. Vacuum the floor and dust surfaces regularly to eliminate bad and sticky energy.
3. Open your windows and blinds
Opening your windows and blinds is another way to bring positive energy into your home.
Opening one window for a few minutes daily will help bring fresh air and positive energy in. And keeping your blinds open as much as possible will flood your home with natural light, which can instantly uplift your mood and fill your home with joy.
Ensure you don’t place any heavy furniture in front of your windows to make the most of natural light.
4. Add a touch of nature with houseplants
Houseplants are beautiful and can make us feel more connected to nature. They can also help relieve stress and improve our well-being. Even just one plant could help bring more positive energy to your home.
If you don’t have a green thumb, opt for a spider plant, a pothos, a snake plant, or any other plant that doesn’t require much maintenance.
5. Brighten up your home with colours
If you feel like your home could use a makeover, you could paint your walls with colours that bring joy and tranquillity.
Green encourages peacefulness and well-being. Blue is a calm and soothing colour. Orange brings warmth and excitement, while yellow is a sunny and cheerful colour.
If you can’t or don’t want to paint your walls, accessories in a colour that makes you feel good can bring positive vibes into your home.
6. Use scented candles or essential oils
Lighting a few candles will make your home feel cozy and peaceful. If you opt for a scented candle, you can also fill your home with a fragrance that will lift your mood. Be sure to choose a candle that contains essential oils and no harmful chemicals.
An essential oil diffuser is another way to make your home feel more joyful and positive. Essential oils such as peppermint, cedarwood, cypress, rose, and sweet orange can bring you good vibes.
7. Use a Himalayan salt lamp
If you have already seen a Himalayan salt lamp, you know they are pretty and emit a warm and comforting glow. But did you know they also emit negative ions?
Despite what their name suggests, negative ions bring with them some truly positive benefits. They can refresh us, boost our energy levels, and improve our overall mood.
They get released by Himalayan salt lamps, but we also find plenty on the beach, near a waterfall, or after a thunderstorm.
8. Smudge your home
If you feel like your home is overwhelmed with negative energy that someone else brought in, you could try smudging. This ancient practice consists of burning herbs to let their smoke clear the air of negative and stagnant energy.
Smudging sticks are often made from dried sage. If you want to smudge your home, get a smudging stick and light it as if you were lighting up a stick of incense. Next, walk around your home and let the smoke clear the air.
9. Invite happiness and joy into your home
Finally, to bring positive energy into your home, invite joy and happiness. Create happy memories by spending time with your friends and loved ones. You can print photos of cherished memories and display them in your home.
