Truth bomb: Your psychic energy makes you more sensitive to negativity than most people.
How does this strike ya?…Picture it:
The women next to you in the store is not having a good day. Her toddler has broken into a cereal box and redecorated the store aisle with Cheerios. The frazzled mom (hey, we’ve all been there) proceeds to yell at little Suzy — she only turned her back for a minute!
Of course, the store manager is less than thrilled with the Cheerios creation. Now he and the mom are exchanging words while Suzy cries.
Is your stomach tight just picturing that? Are you internally cringing? I am…
As intuitive souls, we’re often faced with combating negative energy…
And it can be tougher to stay away from than that chocolate cake calling your name in the fridge!
Negative energy drains us, makes us feel un-grounded, anxious, and is overall unpleasant, right? So let’s take a collective deep breath and explore some ways to kick negative energy to the curb and clean up our psychic energy!
Cleaning up your Psychic Energy
Of course in order to combat negative energy, we need to know how to recognize it when it presents it’s ugly head.
Raise your hand if you have:
- Felt an unexplained exhaustion after going to a particular place or being with a particular person.
- Wanted to lock yourself in a pillow fort because processing emotions seemed too tough.
- Felt anxious or upset in a space for no particular reason.
- Avoided certain situations or activities you used to enjoy.
- Recently dealt with an illness.
There are lots of other symptoms of negative energy, but at the end of the day, you know yourself. You’re intuitive. So if something feels like OMG – I need an aura cleansing bath – you’re probably right.
And if you’re reading this, it’s high time to clean up your psychic energy and kick negative energy to the curb.
Below are a bunch of ways you can get your energetic fields in tip-top shape again! Try one idea, a bunch, or mix things up and combine some of these tricks of the trade.
Mostly, remember to do what YOU feel most drawn to and works best for you! :)
14 Ideas for Cleaning up Your Psychic Energy
1. Set Your Intention
This is first because intention is the foundation of any project. Setting your intention is super important as you seek to clean up your psychic energy.
It should accompany any of these other techniques, okay?
BTW, I’m a big believer in stating intentions aloud as well as writing them down. We need to manifest them to the Universe as well as ourselves.
Tip: Of course, you can THINK your intentions if you’re in public and don’t want someone to call the cops on you. (Um, there’s a lady here chanting out loud?!).
There are no particular words you need to use, just say whatever feels right to you. It can be as simple as:
“I set my intention that all negative energy and influences be cleared from this space (or cleared from my body).”
Use the words that resonate with you — there’s no wrong way to do it.
2. Get Reiki or Some Other Type of Healing Session
First things first. If you can afford to get yourself a healing session, I highly recommend it. But if you can’t, no worries. You can totally meditate instead or use one of these ideas for people who hate meditating!
If you’re a newbie to meditation, the following post will help:
And if you’re like, yes! sign me up for Reiki right now… here’s the scoop:
Reiki is a healing technique that minimizes stress and promotes good energy. It is administered by touch and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.
Of course, there are multiple other modalities out there that accomplish the same goal. Do what feels best for YOU. Here are some ideas:
- Theta healing
- Cranial sacral therapy
- Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
- Polarity therapy
I’ve had ALL of these with great success! Bonus: Whether you meditate or have a Reiki session, you may learn something while clearing up your psychic energy. (Look at you, multitasking queen!)
3. Banish Drama From Your Life
Listen up — it is high time to serve drama an eviction notice. It steals your positive psychic energy and leaves you feeling stressed, anxious, and negative. Sounds like a blast, right? *insert strong sarcastic tone here*
But how are you supposed to banish drama for good?! Great question, friend. Check this out.
4. Get in Touch with Your Intuition
Your intuition is your Higher Self/soul. AKA — it’s super duper important.
And, it will always guide you in the right direction. After all it IS a part of you… Have you ever felt as though a person/place/situation was just wrong? Oh yeah, that was your Higher Self giving you a nudge through your intuition.
Getting in touch with your Higher Self and learning to trust your intuition can make life SO much more joyful – which is a natural repellent for negativity! Boom.
5. Be Joyful
Actually, let’s chat a little more about Joy. Because yes, it’s that important.
First things first… How can you serve others and live an intuitive life if you’re miserable? I’m not saying that you have to be Sally Sunshine every day, but as an intuitive soul, you want your overall vibe to be high…
This will help keep your psychic energy healthy… Seriously, joy is like “an apple a day” for your soul!
Have you ever heard that the best cure is prevention? By raising our energetic vibration we’re able to defend against negative energy! Again, there’s not really a right or wrong way to do this.
The principles of maintaining a high vibration are pretty simple:
- Surround yourself in beauty (whatever that means to you)
- Seek joy
- Engage with people and things you love
Doesn’t sound so rough, right?
Doing what makes you happy and healthy is guaranteed to keep your good vibrations circulating, so there are lots of positive psychic energy around you and your home.
Trust me, this works. I’ve spent the last 10 years or so learning how to be joyful! You and I both know it can be hard to feel happy in this crazy world we live in, but living a happy life (even with challenges and obstacles) IS possible.
The way I learned to live a joyful life was through the teachings of Esther Hicks. I can’t recommend enough the book Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires. In my opinion, this book should be required reading for EVERY human being on Earth.
Not only did Ask and It Is Given change my life, it saved me.
I also highly recommend The Teachings of Abraham: The Master Course CD Program. Personally, I own almost ALL of Esther Hicks teachings, but this CD set is one of my absolute favorites! I listen to it every day for a positive energy pick-me-up!
6. Use Aromatherapy
I used to diffuse essential oils instead of candles, just for fun. Then I learned from an aromatherapy guru that this stuff is actually linked to your brain! It’s incredibly powerful.
Have you even smelled something that took you right back to a specific time or place? The feelings came with it, right? We use this concept to promote relaxation and clear that negative energy away.
Some of the best oils to use for eliminating negative energy and raising your psychic energy are:
You can also try essential oil blends, which are a lot of fun to experiment with. (One of my fav’s is 3 drops of lavender and 3 drops of peppermint in my diffuser.).
There are all types of difusers, including ones for your home, car, and even necklace diffusers!
7. Use Crystals
This is by far one of my favorite ways to ward off negative energy! The cool thing about crystals is that they can both preventative and healing.
If you keep the right crystals on you, especially if you know you’re going to be around negative energy, you can avoid a bog down all together…
And after you’ve been exposed to negative energy, they can help clear it up.
Plus… aren’t they sooo pretty?!
My favorite is black tourmaline — I actually carry it in my pocket if I know I’m going to be out and about all day! It protects me from feeling drained as I’m with all types of people.
Others that work as well are:
8. Surround Yourself with White Light Every Day
I’ve been surrounding myself and my family (including our kitty, Gus!) with white light for years! I do it every morning and it feels like an energy cleanse!
To clean up your psychic energy, surround yourself with white light every day, too. It’s like a suit of armor for the soul! All you need to do is imagine yourself being surrounded by white light… head to toe.
I like to do it first thing in the morning when I wake up – or I imagine that the water in my shower is cleansing white light pouring down on me. Then, I hold the image of each of my family members in my mind and imagine wrapping them in white light, too!
9. Imagine Yourself Surrounded by Mirrors
I’m rubber, you’re glue… whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you! Do you remember saying that as a kid? I do!
The “grown up” version of “I’m rubber, you’re glue” is to imagine that there is a big mirror in front of you facing outward. And bam! Any negativity bounces right off it and and “returns to sender!”
10. Get a Himalayan Salt Lamp
These are not just for yoga studios anymore! I have one in almost every room of my house and have never looked back — they’re fantastic.
I especially recommend using them wherever you have electronic devices. They’re soothing, dispel any negative energy, and their soft glow is incredibly comforting.
If I’m feeling particularly bogged down, I will go sit by my lamp and meditate for a few minutes.
Basically, positive ions are created in different ways, including electromagnetic (EM) radiation from our electronic devices. Positively-charged ions sap our energy, leaving us feeling drained. They leak negative energy. (Please don’t ask me to explain this in detail — my last science class was in the 90’s. lol)
Since salt is a natural conduit, the lamp grabs ahold of these positive ions and changes them into negative ions, which emit positive energy. :)
11. Burn or Spray Sage
This may be one of the first things you think of when talking about clearing negative energy. It’s a widely popular tradition — for good reason!
Sage has been used by native cultures for eons to cleanse negative energy from spaces and people.
This is one of my favorite ways to cleanse because it smells great and the ritual of walking around the house with a sage smudge stick (or spray) while invoking a cleansing mantra feels so powerful!
My sage recommendations:
- My personal favorite, by a landslide is this sage spray! Look — I am in LOVE with this stuff. OMG it’s seriously so easy — just spritz it around your house or car and voila! Done!
- If you prefer to burn sage, these are my favorite white sage sticks (which have over 1,000 5-star reviews on Amazon).
12. Burn 9 white candles
Yes, specifically 9. And yes, specifically white. Look, I know this sounds a little kooky, but I learned it in a feng shui class once.
- Take 9 tea light size candles and place them on a fire-proof surface (I use a large plate).
- Light each candle and let them all burn out on their own (it takes about 4-5 hours).
- This supposedly clears the energy of the 9 areas of your home according to feng shui.
P.S. Please don’t leave home while the candles are burning. :)
13. Play High Vibrational Music
It’s no secret that dancing around to your favorite song can boost your mood. But yes, it can also cleanse negative energy! Now that’s what I call a win-win.
Music is a natural, easy solution for negative vibes because it raises our energetic vibration. It changes the frequencies in the air, which uplifts our mood – making us less susceptible to low energies. There’s no right or wrong way to do this — just play something you enjoy. Now, get out there and shake that thing!
14. Cleanse Your Aura
Your aura is a direct reflection of your psychic energy. If you are feeling poo-poo, it’s going to be reflected in your aura. That’s why you’ll see loving people with a muddy or black aura sometimes.
One of the most fun ways to cleanse your aura is to take an aura cleansing bath. A soak in the tub with some salts and a little essential oil is a great recipe for healthy psychic energy!
- Here’s how to take an Aura Cleansing Bath
- And here are some other ways to spruce up your aura! It’s like spring cleaning for your energy fields!
Clearing Your Psychic Energy Takeaways
As you encounter negative energies throughout your day, select any way to cleanse that seems right to you!
I use essential oils, salt lamps, high vibrational music, and crystals around my home every day. It keeps my space protected and cleansed.
But, I recommend tapping into your intuition and letting it tell you what techniques to use. You might use just one, or you might combine a few of them, depending on the energy you are working with or what your intuition is telling you!
