Negative energy is a very general term we use today to describe an unseen force which makes our lives harder to live. In some cultures, they will call it the evil eye, modern psychology may call it depression, medicine may call it fatigue etc. Negative energy may have plenty of sources of origin but the important part is to be determined to clear the problem and take steps to rectify all possible underlying issues. We cannot change others but we can change ourselves.
Sadly, because many people can’t find peace within themselves, sometimes we can be victims of dark energy send intentionally or not by them. The negative energy has the ability to interfere in your life and it can be overwhelming in case you don’t know how to protect yourself from this energy.
There are various types of negative energy and you can’t really deal with negative energy until you learn its sources. These three sources may be influencing your feelings of negativity
You have probably had the experience of feeling positive or negative energy from a person. Humans pick up on anger, sadness, and other negative emotions that others project. We are good at reading those through verbal and nonverbal cues even when they aren’t openly expressed.
You may have experienced feeling very comfortable in some environments and uncomfortable in others. Sometimes this is because of the experience that you associate with the place. You’re unlikely to be as comfortable in the dentist’s office as in a friend’s home. But there is also scientific evidence that the physical details of your surroundings can impact your mood. Clutter, for example, can create stress and even interfere with your sleep. Places that make you uncomfortable can also be described as having negative energy because it affects your mood and aura.
Self-talk is the flow of mostly unspoken thoughts that run through your head. Negative thoughts can harm your health and well-being.
If you are being a victim of dark energy you are probably not feeling very well in general. We’ll help you identify the signs that you are being affected by dark energy and give you some tips to overcome the situation.

4. You’re letting others control your life
You’re not following your own instincts and in look for support from other people you’re letting their opinions interfere too much in your life. Instead of feeling supported, you feel way more lonely than ever and you’re trying to fill everyone else expectations instead of fulfilling your dreams and following your own directions.
You are focusing too much on comparing yourself to others, that’s why you’re stepping away from your own path.
In that process, you’re also not being able to process other people’s critics to yourself and you see everything as a strong personal attack. Try to be more conscious about the way you deal with it.

Complaining occurs when we express the negative talk in our heads out loud. Complaining can become such an ingrained habit that you don’t realize when you are doing it. When you complain, you are putting your negative energy out where it can affect others.

There are many things you can do to connect with yourself and protect from the negative powers that people send towards you. This is important for your present if you identify the previously mentioned signs, but also for the future because it can happen again.

Dealing With Negative People
You’ll be happier if you associate with positive people, which may mean rethinking your social circle. It may not be possible or desirable to remove all the negative people from your life. However, you can find ways to maintain positive energy in their presence. One is to imagine an aura of positivity surrounding you like a shield. Another is to use humor to create positive energy.
Create a Positive Environment
Decluttering your home and workspace can get rid of negative energy. Hold on to useful things and the items you love, and get rid of the rest. When you are tempted to buy more stuff, remind yourself that things don’t bring happiness.
You can look for help if you think this energy is too strong to start fighting it for yourself, maybe a healer, someone to help you clean the energies of your body and house, a meditation facilitator, etc.
For the future, remember to trust your own instincts, and anytime you feel you’re being under attack, don’t let things go on for too long. Act and solve it as quickly as you notice it!
Nothing can invade you without your permission
We don’t learn it, but the truth is that if energy is in our life is because, consciously or not, you gave permission for it in your life. For example, if you keep victimizing yourself you’re calling negative energies, or if you vibrate in hatred against your or the others.
Change your mindset, don’t let yourself fall in these patterns anymore.
Drink water and meditate to it before you drink it, or activate it while drinking it by thinking and feeling love. The water has the ability to concentrate our energies.
Smudge your places with white sage or palo santo often.
Review your boundaries
You don’t have to become a cold heart, but you also don’t have to accept all the energies everyone around you is trying to send you. If someone isn’t doing well you can try to support, but if you realize that person is not willing to seek a cure, you can always say “I’m not interested.”
Remember to keep your own integrity, after all, we don’t have to be always on service and duty.
Dealing with dark energy can be one of the biggest challenges of them all, but it’s so common that bringing awareness and protection habits into our life is essential.
