How To Remove Negative Energy From Home?

Negative energy within the home causes for its inhabitants to get sick, for the plants to die and things always seem to break. Nobody wants that in their home. That’s why it’s important to cleanse your space. If you’re still not sure if you have negative energy in your space, there is an old wives tale about how to find out. All you’ll need is a long wax candle or a candle from the church. Light it and start going around the home clockwise, starting from the front door. Make sure to pay special attention to the corners and furniture. If the flame seems calm and keeps lit, this means that there is no negative energy. If the flame is crackling, smoking and the flames increase at certain spots, that means that in that place there is a lot of negative energy. So, how can we get rid of it?

Open The Windows

Make sure you ventilate your space every day. This doesn’t mean you should keep the windows open 24/7, but take some time out of the day to get some fresh air inside. It’s also very important to open up the windows in cases where you feel like your home guest was a bearer of negative energy.
