We’ve all gone through those times in our life when nothing seems to go as planned. Often the culprit to these times of setbacks and unhappiness is the presence of negative energy in our life.
In this article, we’ll explore how to spiritually cleanse your house and get rid of negative energy so that you can live a happier and more prosperous life.
So, let’s get started!
What is negative energy and why is it harmful to us?
I think it is useful to start at the beginning and outline exactly what it is that we’re dealing with here.
Negative energy is, quite simply, any form of energy that is harmful to us. This can manifest itself in a number of ways, including but not limited to:
-Making us feel anxious, stressed, or depressed
-Causing arguments and conflict
-Making us feel tired or drained
-Affects our health negatively
Essentially, any time we feel bad in some way, it is likely that negative energy is the cause. Depending on your belief system, this may be due to the influence of heavenly bodies, a capricious universe, or an unhappy diety.
In my experience, it is all connected and whatever the source, negative energy needs to be overcome quickly
How do you test for negative energy in your home?
It is simple to know if there is negative energy in your home. You will feel it. By that I mean, you will sense it in your gut, or as a tightness in your chest. It’s one of those sensations that once experienced, it’s never forgotten.
There are a few ways to tell if there is negative energy in your home, and I’ve experienced all of these at one point or another.
One way is if somebody in your home is chronically ill and no matter what you do, they just can’t seem to get better. As advanced as western medicine is, I don’t believe it’s a holistic approach and often ignores our spiritual care. So, even with the best doctors, if there is negative energy in the home, someone will be ill.
Another way to tell is if somebody in your family is having a hard time landing a job they want or keeping a job they have. Now, sometimes this is simply because they aren’t qualified for the position they are applying for, but what about when they are? Negative energy can be preventing good things from happening.
If there is always quarreling in your home, that’s another tell-tale sign that negative energy is at play. People can quarrel for all sorts of reasons, but if it seems like every time you turn around somebody is arguing, and it’s not just about different opinions, that’s a sign that something else is going on. Negative energy can put everyone on the defensive and make even simple things become a big deal.
You can also tell if negative energy is present if you assess yourself and find that you’re feeling depressed and unmotivated more often than not. sadness is a natural emotion that we all feel from time to time, but when it’s constant, that’s different. If you find yourself in this boat, it’s possible that negative energy is affecting you as well.
A lot of times, we are unaware that negative energy is present until it’s too late and somebody in the family gets sick or we start having financial problems. But if you’re able to catch it early, you can save yourself a lot of heartache.
If any of these things are happening in your home, it’s time to do a spiritual cleansing. Spiritual cleansing is when you cleanse your home of negative energy so that you can lead a happier and more prosperous life. Below are some tips on how to do a spiritual cleansing.

How to spiritually cleanse a house
Over the millennia of human existence, our ancestors have perfected the ways of eradicating negative energy from our shelters. What worked thousands of years ago is just as effective today.
Below I’m going to go over a few different ways to reduce the negative energy in your home. You can use each method individually or in combination with each other for the best results.
Burn sage to reduce negative energy in the home
By far the most vogue method of cleansing negative energy is to burn sage. Sage has been used for centuries in many cultures for its ability to cleanse and purify. In modern times this practice is referred to as ‘smudging’.
To use sage to cleanse your home, you’ll need a bundle of sage and a heat-proof container like an abalone shell. First, open all the doors and windows in your home to allow the negative energy to escape.
Then, light the sage and let it burn for a few seconds before blowing it out. Start at the front door and walk through your home, wafting the smoke into all the corners and crevices. As you do this, visualize the negative energy being drawn out of your home.
When you’re finished, open the doors and windows again to release the negative energy. You can then dispose of the sage outside.
You can read more about this method, read my full beginner’s guide to smudging.
Use holy water to reduce negative energy in the home
If you are a practicing Christian, then you know that your faith can overcome anything, including any negativity stuck in your home. For those denominations that use it, holy water can be very powerful indeed.
The first step is to get your hands on some holy water. Usually, if you explain your situation to your religious leader, he or she will be able to provide you with as much holy water as you need.
Once you have the holy water, go through your home and sprinkle it in all the corners, closets, and other dark places. As you do this, say a prayer asking God to remove all the negative energy from your home. This ritual is to re-establish your home as a dominion of the Lord which is filled with HIS love and benevolence.
After you’re finished, open all the doors and windows to let the negative energy escape and to fill your home with light and fresh air.
Use crystals to reduce negative energy in the home
The power of certain crystals and gemstones has been known for centuries. Different crystals have different properties, but most of them can be used to reduce negative energy in the home.
One of the most popular crystals for cleansing is black tourmaline. This crystal is said to absorb and deflect negative energy. It’s also said to promote harmony and understanding, which are both important when it comes to reducing negativity.
To use black tourmaline for cleansing, place it in the four corners of your home. As you do this, visualize the negative energy being absorbed into the crystal. You can then leave the crystals in place or remove them once the cleansing is complete.
Another popular crystal for cleansing is selenite. Selenite is said to have the ability to cleanse and purify both people and spaces. It’s also said to promote peace and harmony.
To use selenite for cleansing, simply place it in the center of your home. You can then leave it there or remove it once the cleansing is complete.

Recite incantations to reduce negative energy in the home
Incantations, or manifestations, are another way to reduce negative energy in your home by unlocking positivity within your soul. Essentially, you are speaking words of power that will change your mindset and, as a result, the energy in your home.
One of the most popular incantations for cleansing is:
As you say these words, visualize the negative energy being drawn out of your home and replaced with light, love, and healing.
You can say this incantation as many times as you like, but I usually find that three times is sufficient.
Another popular incantation for cleansing is:
As you say these words, visualize a bright white light surrounding your home. This light will protect you and your home from all negativity.
You can say this incantation as many times as you like, but I usually find that three times is sufficient.

Pray to reduce negative energy in the home
If your spirituality has its basis in the church, then pray may be the best way for you to unlock the positivity within you and drive out negative energy.
Prayer is a way to connect with God and to ask for HIS help. When you pray, you are essentially asking God to remove all the negative energy from your home and replace it with HIS love and light.
Now, even if you pray every day you can still accumulate negative energy in your home. This is because we live in a fallen world and negativity is all around us. The important thing is to practice the right sort of prayer.
If you’re not sure how to pray, don’t worry, there are many resources available that can help you.
As you might imagine, your prayers are most effective when they reflect God’s intentions for us. So I tend to avoid prayers which put all of the pressure on the Lord, but rather ask for guidance to solve the situation myself.
So, I would recommend the following style of prayer.
This style of prayer is effective because it acknowledges our imperfections and asks for guidance. It also recognizes that the power to remove negative energy lies with God, not us.
When you pray this way, you are essentially asking God to help you cleanse your home of negative energy. He will then provide you with the guidance and strength you need to do so.
Call on your spirit guides for help to reduce negative energy in the home
I understand that some of the people who are reading this are not religious in the traditional sense, and your spirituality is expressed in other ways. Spiritual guides, whether they are angels or other entities, are excellent at helping us avoid negative energy.
Your spiritual guide is with you always, even if you don’t realize it. They are there to help and guide you through life. So, if you feel like you need some help cleaning your home of negative energy, then ask your guides for help.
To do this, simply close your eyes and ask them to come to you. Then, explain the situation and ask for their help.
Once you have done this, you should feel a sense of calm and peace. This is because your guides are with you and they will help you to cleanse your home of negative energy.

Use Feng Shui to reduce negative energy in the home
Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice that is designed to create harmony and balance in the home. The idea is that if your home is in harmony, then you will be in harmony.
One of the ways Feng Shui achieves this harmony is by reducing negative energy. Negative energy can come from a number of sources, such as:
• It can also come from the energy of the people who live in the home
• It can also come from the surroundings, such as a busy road
Feng Shui practitioners believe that by reducing negative energy, you can create a more positive and harmonious environment.
There are a number of ways to do this, but one of the most effective is to use a Feng Shui consultant. They will be able to assess your home and make recommendations on how to improve the flow of energy.
Using salt to reduce negative energy in the home
Salt is believed to be a powerful cleanser of negative energy. It is said that salt can be placed at each corner of your house as well as at the doorways, in order to keep bad energy out. Before doing this, make sure to clean the corners and doorways of any dirt or dust, as the salt will not be as effective otherwise. You may also want to say a positive affirmation or prayer as you place the salt, to help increase its power.
What do you say when cleansing your house?
I believe words are what separate us from the beasts and what we say has immense power during cleansing rituals. I’ve gone over a few ideas of prayers or manifestations earlier in this article, but my best advice is to get intentional here.
What is your reason for wanting the negative energy in your home to disappear? Say exactly what you want to happen and why.
For example, you or a relative may be experiencing sickness, you may feel a sense of unease in your home, or family members may be arguing more frequently.
When you state your intention out loud, it allows the energy to begin shifting in your favor.
In this situation, I might say something like:
‘I intend for this house cleansing to remove any and all negative energy that is causing (or has caused) sickness, arguments, or a general feeling of unease in our home. I want our home to be a peaceful haven where we can all feel comfortable and safe.’
You can also use this time to ask for specific things in your life.
For example, if you’ve been wanting a raise at work or hoping to start a family, this is an opportune time to state your desires out loud.
When you do so, it allows the Universe to know what you’re working towards and gives it the green light to start bringing those things into your life.

The benefits of having a spiritually cleansed home
We’ve already spoken about how to identify negative energy in your home as well as how you can get rid of it. Now, let’s talk about what you can expect after you’ve completed a house cleansing ritual.
Some of the benefits of having a spiritually cleansed home are
A deeper sense of peace and relaxation
In my experience, negative energy in my home always made me feel anxious and on edge. After completing a cleansing ritual, I immediately felt a sense of relief and my anxiety dissipated.
If you’ve been feeling stressed out or like you can’t catch a break, a house cleansing could be exactly what you need.
An increase in positive energy
As might be expected, when you get rid of the negative energy in your home, you create space for positive energy to enter. This is going to give you a boost in all areas of your life.
Improved sleep quality
I don’t know about you, but not getting enough sleep can negatively affect my entire existence. Negative energy affects your sleeping cycle because it increases stress and anxiety levels.
If you’ve been struggling to get a good night’s rest, cleansing your home of negative energy may help you finally get the sleep you need and deserve.
More clarity and focus
When your home is invaded by negative energy, everything looks bleak and difficult to achieve. Once that energy is gone, you’ll find it much easier to focus on your goals and what you want to achieve in life.
Greater overall health and well-being
As I’ve said before, western medicine only treats the body and never the spirit. Patients that are consumed with negativity can often become sicker and not pull through compared to those who are more positive.
A spiritually cleansed home will lead to an increase in positivity and a sense of peace, both of which are great for your overall health and well-being.

Perhaps one of the most beneficial effects of cleansing your home is the improved relationships you’ll have with those around you.
When negative energy is present, it often leads to arguments and tension between family and friends. But when that energy is gone, you’ll find it much easier to get along with the people in your life.
These are just some of the benefits that you may experience after completing a house cleansing ritual. Remember, the most important part is to have an intention for what you want to achieve from the cleansing. With that in mind, go forth and cleanse your home of negative energy!
How to keep your house free of negative energy in the future
Once you have cleansed your home of negative energy, you will feel so refreshed that you will never want to go back to living in a negative space again. There are some easy things you can do to keep your home free of negativity in the future.
Keep your house clean and organized
A cluttered and messy house is more likely to attract negative energy. Make sure you regularly clean and declutter your space to prevent negative energy from moving in.
Personally, I think this is more of a psychological thing. An unorganized home just makes me feel stressed out and like I can’t think straight. It breaks down my positive barriers and is a slippery slope toward negativity.
Don’t allow negative people into your home
This one is self-explanatory. If you don’t want negative energy in your home, don’t allow negative people to enter. You know the sort, the ones that always have something negative to say or complain about everything.
Those people are just toxic and their energy will only bring you down. We all need to learn how to cut these people out of our lives, but if they are relatives then this can be difficult. Just do your best to limit the time you spend with them and make sure they don’t enter your home too often.
Be mindful of the words you use in your home
The words you speak in your home carry a lot of weight. If you’re constantly using negative language, you’re going to attract negative energy. Make an effort to use positive words when speaking to others in your home.
For example, instead of saying “I can’t” try saying “I can”. It may seem like a small change, but it really does make a difference.
Place salt at each corner of your house
Salt is a natural cleanser and will help to absorb any negative energy that might be lurking in your home. It’s an excellent deterrent to negativity and is very easy to do. Simply place a bowl of salt at each corner of your house and leave it there for 24 hours. After that, you can dispose of the salt in any way you see fit.
Burn sage or incense regularly
Sage and incense are great for clearing negative energy. Make sure you do this regularly, especially if you feel like the energy in your home is off. I like to smudge my home at least once a month, but some people do it every day. It’s really up to you and how you feel.
One of the best ways to keep your home free of negative energy is to practice gratitude. Whenever you feel like negativity is creeping in, take a moment to think about all the things you’re grateful for. This
Carry a piece of crystal with you
Crystals have protective qualities that will help to keep negative energy away. Carry one with you or place them around your home to create a protective barrier. I like to keep a small piece of black tourmaline in my wallet. But I also have amethyst, citrine, and selenite around my house.
These are just some of the things you can do to keep your home free of negative energy. Remember, the most important thing is to be aware of the energy in your space and to take action if it starts to feel off.
Keep fresh flowers in your home
Flowers are natural symbols of positivity and will help to brighten up any space. There’s something about their beauty and fragrance that just makes me feel happy. So if you’re looking for an easy way to raise the energy in your home, put some flowers in a vase and enjoy their positive vibes.
Always stay positive!
This is the most important tip of all. If you want to keep your home free of negative energy, you need to stay positive yourself. Practice visualization and focus on creating a happy and positive home. Every morning I start the day with a positive affirmation, such as
This helps me to stay on track and keeps the energy in my home high.
So there you have it! These are just some of the things you can do to keep your home free of negative energy. Remember, the most important thing is to be aware of the energy in your space and to take action if it starts to feel off. Stay positive and enjoy the good vibes!
