After confirming that you have negative energy impacting your life, it is important to rectify its source. Once the source is established, then it is easier to disconnect yourself from its influences.
Negativity being such a huge field with different origins, it impacts our lives differently. Note that if this negativity is rooted in a simple situation of wrongful thinking or consistent worry, it is easier to deal with. However if it is originating from external forces, fields, beings or energies, then it takes more vigor and skill to get rid of. External sources could be those fed by evil people who either send out negative thoughts, or actually make an effort to practice witchcraft. This is when things get a bit complicated.
In this article, I will tackle the issue of dealing with negative energy that originates from oneself through activities, such as wrongful thinking, worry, doubt, deceit, laziness and anything else that is self created.
To completely eradicate this kind of energy, one still has to find its causes.
The first step is to ask yourself what ignites your wrongful thinking, worry, doubt, fear and whatever else is negative. Remember that being honest with yourself is vital to your healing. Also, considering the fact that the mind enjoys and tends to hold onto pity, worry and any other negative feelings it has been entertained with for a while, one should take time to really dig deep and establish the core of the problem. It might take time to get to the root of things; however repetition creates expertise when embraced with focus.
Once the cause or source of one’s negativity is established, then he/she has to ascertain why he/she keeps dwelling on it. For example; I was once racially harassed at a job, and because I didn’t deal with its impact at the emotional level, I went around thinking that everyone of a different race from mine was harassing me. Even when they were nice and friendly, a voice in my head kept screaming, “pretenders.” Due to this belief, I lost a lot of friends because I always expected the worst. I thought everyone I met had an intention to harass or discriminate me in some way. This kept me worried all the time. Then, I hated meeting new people for the fear of being exposed to discrimination. I underestimated the impact of my previous experience and what it did to my mind. Apparently, evidently, I let my past experience build a firm belief in my mind that kept me negative and resentful. It is only when I sort spiritual counseling that the healer dealt with my beliefs and helped me get rid of them.
If you are in a similar situation, these are some of the steps you can take to rid yourself off the negativity.
- After establishing the cause of this negativity, go within and forgive yourself. Tell yourself several times that “I forgive and love myself unconditionally.” You could do this every morning or night while taking a shower or whenever you get a moment alone during day. It is advisable to exercise this for a minimum of nine days.
- Get time alone, no cell phones, no television, and no interruptions. Get a piece of pen and paper and write a letter to the person or situation that created that negative belief. Remember that this letter shouldn’t be sent. Rather, use it to download every negative memory in your mind. It is okay to feel emotional as you write the letter. The point is to write everything you want to tell this person or situation without holding anything back. After writing the letter, put it aside for a maximum of 4 hours; read it again and then burn it. As you do this, talk to the situation or person as if they are sitting on the top of the letter. “I have removed you from my conscious and subconscious mind, and now I am burning you out my life. You are smoke and ashes and no more in my life,” tell it. You may wanna do this for a couple of days until you have nothing more to write about regarding the situation.
- The next step is to light up a couple of white candles (number of candles doesn’t matter), sit in front of them for a few minutes and visualize a white light surrounding you and cleansing all your energies, mind, spirit and body. Leave the candles to burn out and before you go to bed that night, say “thank you” to yourself.
