Negative energy impacts your ability to live a joyful life. We all encounter people and situations that can bring us down. We are constantly being bombarded by negative vibes and some of us are more susceptible than others. Understanding how to deal with this energy is the best way to avoid living in a perpetual state of negativity, which is counter-productive to a healthy, vibrant, fully present you. Recognizing negative energy is the first step to clearing it out of your space and head.

What are signs of negative energy?


Are you experiencing bouts of insomnia? Your inability to sleep may be a sign that your household contains negative energy.

Unbearable Stress & Sickness

Stress is a part of life, but if you feel overwhelmed and are unable to cope with everyday stressors it might be time to evaluate what negative vibes are bringing you down. Stress can be the culprit of your illness too. Make a mental note of when you come down with a cold in relation to the stressful things happening in your life. Chances are your stressors and health issues are related. Toxic energy can make you physically ill.

Overall Fogginess

Negative energy makes it difficult to focus on what you need to do and how you need to govern yourself around others.
