There are several methods you can use to detect negative energy at home. However, the method in this post is a very simple and quick trick and will help you maintain harmony in the house. Negative energies affect our daily lives, making us stressed, anxious, and depressed. They are sometimes unavoidable, but you can remove them. Some of the things that indicate there are negative energies in the house include stress, financial problems, relationship problems, bad luck, and many others. Here is how to detect negative energy with a glass of water.
How to Detect Negative Energy With a Glass of Water?
- Find a clean glass of water with no colors, drawing, or marks on it.
- Place 1/3 of sea salt in the glass cup
- Pour 2/3 of apple cider vinegar
- Pour water
- Find a space in the house which you sense has negative energies, probably the corners of your house
- Leave the glass of water in the corner for up to 24 hours
- Take the glass cup out to see the state it is in
If the clear glass of water has changed its color (gasified or dyed green), it means there are negative energies in the house and you have to make a clean one. All you have to do is throw the glass contents in the toilet and flush it. Now, fill another one and place it in the same place. Repeat this process until the glass is the same as you have placed it. A clear glass means there are no negative energies in the room again.
How Do You Know if Your House Has Negative Energy?
You can tell if the energy in your house is bad, good, or neutral based on how you feel inside. A home filled with positive energy feels vibrant and fresh; you feel good staying there because it is full of life. On the other hand, a house drowning in negative energies will make you feel like you are being smothered, stifled, or even crushed. Stress and negative energy go hand-in-hand, so if you are frazzled constantly, your house could be to blame partly.
What are Signs of Negative Energy?
If you are unsure if your house has negative energies of its own, red flags include the following:
Clutter is one of the biggest signs of bad energy in the home. Clutter tends to block the energy flows in a home, so it can be keeping negative energy in and making situations worse.
The Blame Game
Are members of your house always pointing fingers? Negative energies in the house can be preventing you (and them) from looking inward to accept responsibility for actions taken.
If there is a lot of criticism going along with the blame game, your house could be filled with negative energies. When you (or other household members) send out negative vibrations, you are increasing bad energy in your space.
When the individuals around you – children, spouses, friends, and family – are negative, it is important to look at the type of energy you are putting out there. Negative energies attract more negative energies, and it now becomes a vicious cycle.
If you or members of your family are fond of complaining, even when everything seems to be okay, there may be negative energies in your home. This is also true if you are striving to discover positivity in life.
Does Salt Remove Negative Energy?
All over the world, salt is considered a cleansing and protective agent, both metaphysically and physically. A salt bowl in your home will not only kill bacteria, emit ions, and absorb water, but it can also remove negative energy. Salt crystals are believed to have an incredible ability to absorb negative energies.
How do you Cleanse a Room of Negative Energy?
Luckily, it is usually easy to clear negative energy out of your house to make room for positive energy. You will need to do an all-round cleansing, but it is simple and straightforward. First, clean your house. Remove all clutter by disposing of things or putting them away. Open all the blinds and your windows if the weather permits. As you clean, let in as much fresh air and light as you can. Remember to vacuum, dust, and check for cobwebs – you don’t want the bad spirits and negative energies to have any reason being around.
As you are cleaning, note that keeping broken items around in your home is bad Feng Shui, so if you have any item that is irreparably broken, it is time to move on. When you have removed all the broken items from your house and cleared away the clutter, you can use this naturopathic remedy to send the bad energy away.
What You Need:
- Sea salt
- ¼ cup white vinegar or ammonia
- 5 lemons
- Copal, frankincense, or sage (or all three)
- A bell
- Fireproof dish for catching ash and embers (Native Americans typically used abalone shells)
The windows and doors are where energy enters the home. Purify them by mixing a bucket of water with ¼ cup of white vinegar or ammonia, one cup of sea salt, and the juice from 5 lemons. Clean the windows, frames, doors, and doorknobs in your house with this solution to purify them. Additionally, the ancient Native American method of smudging can remove negative energies in the home. Burning sage is a fast and simple way to clear out negative energy and bad spirits. You can add copal and frankincense incense to chase all the bad vibes, so there is enough room for positive ones. Also, you can use Santo, Palo, patchouli, or other herbs healers recommend.
Sage burning will help to display positive energy in the house. Some people prefer making positive affirmations or reciting incantations as they are smudging. If you are comfortable, appealing to a higher power or saying a prayer for positive energy can be helpful. After you have smudged every room, pour sea salt into every corner and leave it there for 48 hours. The salt can help absorb negative energy. Ring the bell 3 times in every corner to disperse all stagnant energy, which the sea salt can then absorb. After 48 hours, vacuum the salt away. Alternatively, you can use a salt lamp to clear negative energies away from your home.
Beyond that, you can protect your house by placing selenite on your windowsills. Selenite can raise the vibration and cleanse in your home. You can use other healing crystals as well. For example, black tourmaline is a crystal that absorbs negative energy and depression. Citrine lets you manifest your dreams, while rose quartz helps open the heart chakra, and amethyst help to set your intention. If one crystal works best for you, place it in spaces where negative energies seem to collect.
