If your home is full of negative energy, you won’t be able to relax and unwind. But don’t worry if you lack the usual mystical cleansing tools of sage or crystals; there are other simple ways to create positive energy in your space.

By simply doing a bit of de-cluttering, repairing, and cleaning, you can transform your home into a place that fills you with nothing but positivity.


Clear out the clutter

We all know that clutter has been proven to trigger anxiety and stress, which can inhibit you from being able to relax at home. Throw out all the unnecessary clutter and instead hold onto only the things which give you a sense of peace and joy.

Repair whatever’s broken

Broken items should be kept out of the home, because these actually retain negative energy. Repair those things if it is still possible, but if not, better throw them out instead.

Cleanse your antiques

Antique pieces can add a sense of history to a home and make it more interesting, but because they have been passed down through generations, these come with energies in themselves, which can add negativity to a home. Simply wash these items carefully before bringing them into your home, and maintain them well.


Do some cleaning

Aside from ridding your home of clutter, it’s also helpful to keep your space spic and span. For one, the stovetop, which represents your health and financial life, should be kept clean. Sweep dust towards the direction of open doors and windows. Wipe doorknobs and windows with a mixture of water, lemon juice, vinegar, and salt. Keeping your house clean is great for combating negativity.

Ring a bell

It has been said that the sound of a ringing bell can actually help in cleansing a home of negative energy. Ring a handheld bell in the corners and doorways of your home to help get rid of all the negativity. Aside from a bell, wind chimes are a great alternative.

Listen to music

Music has always been a tool for dispersing negativity. Listening to music, especially melodic and harmonious tunes, can help lift up your mood and create a positive energy in your space. Singing can be helpful in achieving that, too.


Put up some mirrors

Mirrors are not only great for making a space look larger; they can also make it look a light brighter and more spacious. In feng shui, mirrors are used to deflect negativity, which makes them a good tool for helping make your home a much more pleasurable place to live in.

Use salt as a cleanser

To help ward off any incoming negativity from entering your home, place some salt in the corners of the different rooms in your house and leave it sitting there for about two days, then sweep or vacuum it away.

Burn incense

This practice has been used historically in spiritual ceremonies and is helpful in creating a tranquil environment for meditation. Not only that, but there is a variety of scents that you can go for depending on what kind of vibe you want to achieve in your home. For example, scents like lavender and jasmine can cleanse the aura, while pine and chamomile can help you relax.

Stick to a neutral color scheme

Instead of painting your home in dark colors which can give off a negative vibe, go for more neutral shades that can allow you to unwind after a stressful day.
