With Spring in the air, we tend to think about decluttering the house or maybe doing a detox. But do you ever think about spring cleaning your energy? And what do I actually mean by that!

Springtime is a perfect time to renew your energy, get rid of the old and make way for the new. Everything is energy and we can collect both positive and negative vibrations in our energy fields. The increased energy in Spring has a huge impact on our own energetic field as we start to feel refreshed, more energetic and ready to shed the cobwebs of the winter months.

When our energies are clear, we come across as fresh and full of life but if we are clogged with old negative thoughts and energies, we give off a more unwelcoming, heavy feeling. Negative people also lower our energies – have you ever had a conversation with someone and left feeling completely drained? Or met someone who gives you an uncomfortable feeling you can’t explain?

Places we visit also impact our energies, especially if we spend time where negative energy can collect such as shopping centres, busy streets, offices, workplaces, doctors’ surgeries, hospitals and other people’s homes. Even our own homes can be left with negative energies from arguments, conflict or sadness and this energy can hang around for quite a long time.

Essentially, your energy body can act like a sponge, mopping up the negative energy soup around you on a daily basis and this can eventually manifest as physical, mental or emotional illness. Not exactly a happy thought, is it? Even though you can’t see that energy, if you don’t occasionally cleanse it, the stagnant energy will collect and affect your health and wellbeing.

So, what can you do to encourage positive vibrations and protect yourself?

Here are a few ways you can clear out any stagnant energy from your own energy field and home to allow you to move into Spring grounded and ready to bloom.

1. Try energy healing

Reiki is one of the most efficient ways of cleansing yourself from negative energies. It’s an energy healing modality that works by moving and cleansing the energy in your body’s chakra system. By cleansing and re-circulating your energy, you’re essentially doing a reboot of your emotional, physical, and spiritual health. Reiki helps bring our mind and body back into balance without you needing to do anything else!

2. Declutter

Spring is a great time to go through the things that may have accumulated in your home and remove items that you no longer need or have outgrown. Clutter is a magnet for stagnant, clogged energy and it prevents the energy from flowing freely throughout your home. Clearing the clutter allows the fresh energy of Spring to move freely into your house, whilst making space for new things to enter into your life.

3. Cleanse  

You can energetically cleanse your home by using sage, palo santo, incense or a cleansing spray. After months stuck inside and the old energy of winter still lingering, cleansing clears out all that old, stagnant energy so that we can feel fresh:

  • Grab your cleansing tool and start moving clockwise throughout the room.
  • If you are smoke cleansing use your hand to waft the smoke into all the areas.
  • Raise and lower your smudging stick so the smoke gets the floor and the ceiling.
  • Pay attention to the corners of the room, stagnant energy likes to get stuck there.
  • Repeat this process throughout every room in your house.
  • Make sure you open your windows so the negative energy can escape!

4. Add energy with crystals

Carrying crystals or leaving some around your home is a great way to protect against negative & unwanted energy. It helps invite good energy into your aura and home, particularly the following:

  • Black obsidian can help ward off negativity
  • Rose quartz encourages positive and harmonious relationships
  • Citrine energises, cleanses the chakras and brings good vibrations
  • Selenite helps to purify energy and raise your vibration
  • Amethyst is a protective stone with strong cleansing powers
  • Black tourmaline is a great stone for cleansing and protection
  • Clear quartz is the master healer and amplifies protection

5. Bring the energy of nature into your home

Bringing nature inside the home is a great way to evoke positive energy and to clear the energy of your home. Certain indoor plants have also been proven to work just like a natural air filter. Here are some of the best options when it comes to clearing the air in your home:

  • Aloe vera
  • Bamboo Palm
  • Ficus Alii
  • Peace Lily
  • Boston Fern
  • Corn Plant
  • English Ivy

6. Be mindful about what you are reading or watching on TV

Newspapers, TV, radio, and films often have sad or disturbing images and words that can negatively impact our energy fields. So it’s important to be mindful about what you’re reading, watching or listening to and limit the time you are spending around these energies. Far better to be uplifted by music or happy, fun programmes than to be dragged down by horror films or negative news stories filled with fear.
