A little story, I am a vegetarian for moral reasons that I won't get into here because that's not my story. Very recently, it seemed like my new apartment was filled with a lot of negativity and I felt angry all of the time. Sure, I have been going through a lot and had quite a bit on my plate that would create feelings of tension.
I move a lot of boxes back and forth, because of my business and since it's winter here in NJ, it gets dark by 4pm, so usually the moving of boxes occurred in the dark. One of these dark days, I remember smelling something dead. I figured maybe it was a rotting squirrel and kept it moving. Well, one day I got to move some boxes while there was still light out. I use the back door because it's just easier. I grabbed the first box out of my car and set it aside in my apartment, I went back up the stairs with a little pep in my step until I was literally stopped in my tracks... a severed deer head! Yes, there was a severed deer head hanging out under a patio table outside. Why was there a severed deer head under a patio table outside is beyond me!? But as someone who believes in the energy we put out, I quickly imagined one of the reasons my home was so full of tension was because there was an angry animal spirit roaming around.
I hurriedly got the rest of my boxes out of my car, closed the door and tried to put the head out of my head. This wasn't so easy. All I could think about was this poor animal. I also knew that I didn't want any of that bad juju in my home. I quickly placed crystals on my window sills to help deflect any bad energy that was out there. I also knew that this was the best time for me to start cleansing my new apartment of any bad or stale energy and finally use those sage smudge sticks that I got.
A simple way to create positive energy in your home is to keep it clean and be vigilant about not adding any unnecessary clutter. You want to create an environment that you'll feel good about. Once you have your home in order, you'll want to attract positive energy into it. A couple items that I keep around me to help achieve this are:
I also started keeping a bowl of salt water in my bedroom to absorb negative energy. I personally feel instantly uplifted when I have a bowl of salt water in my space. I no longer have any negative thoughts and my mood feels much lighter. This is simple and can be done in every room. The next day, you'll want to pour out the old water, take care not to get any on you, and to add clean salt water again.
These are just a few simple things that you can start to do to help remove negative energy and to attract some good juju in your space. I have felt a difference once I started implementing these changes. Are you using crystals or anything else to create positive energy into your home? Let me know in the comments.
