Everyone has it. We live in this world, exchanging vibrations of energy. Positive energy can uplift you, while negative energy can pull you down. Energy, just like disease, is contagious. That’s why you laugh when the people around you are funny, and you cry when you’re affected by crying people in films.
Now, we don’t want to get negative energy, don’t we? The key is awareness. Once you know that you are giving off bad energy, you can start changing your behavior towards it and begin your journey of positive vibes!
YOUR MOOD CHANGES A LOT
When your mood changes a lot, it means you have no focus. People with a negative vibe lose focus easily because they let their emotions overpower them instead of seeing situations from other people’s eyes.
YOU COMPLAIN EVEN FOR THE SIMPLEST OF REASONS
No matter how concerned you are with yourself for deserving better, complaints are still full of negative energy. It’s a viewpoint on what is wrong. Think about what about the better side of things instead.
YOU LOVE TALKING ABOUT WHAT’S WRONG INSTEAD OF WHAT’S RIGHT
Praises don’t interest you anymore. You only like to pinpoint the bad things that people are doing instead of what they might be doing right. Lift other people up instead of pulling them down.
YOU JUDGE PEOPLE OFTEN
Once you are so full of negative energy, you will care nothing less about avoiding it. Judging other people means you never appreciate them for what they are and you try to search for something more. People are always enough. Everyone is trying hard just to survive each day. If you can’t be empathic to that, then you are full of negative energy.
YOU BLAME OTHERS
You don’t see the good side in other people but you also don’t want to be at fault. You just want to be credited for noticing, but you never want to be a part of the solution. I don’t know what’s more negative than that.
YOU GET FRUSTRATED WHEN YOU THINGS AREN’T UNDER YOUR CONTROL
People with negative energy tend to panic or get frustrated when things aren’t under their control because they hold on to what could have been. That ideal perspective in their minds is just too hard to let go. If you want to become more positive, you have to let go of control and have faith in what the universe has in store for you.
YOU ALWAYS FEEL LIKE THE VICTIM
It’s okay to feel like a victim sometimes. It means that you know what you truly deserve. But when you feel it all the time, it means you are focused on the wrong things done to you instead of the good actions that have been done to you by anyone, and you focus on what can they possibly do wrong. Be stronger than a victim. Be the survivor.
YOU ARE ONLY GRATEFUL WHEN THINGS GO RIGHT
You only think that things are going well if your perfect dream had happened. Things rarely go the way we plan in life, no matter how much we prepare for it. Something out of our control will always happen and we should be grateful for everything that does. Mistakes are still valuable lessons learned. Being grateful for every second of it won’t do you any harm.
MOMENTS ONLY PASS BY YOU
Negative thoughts can make you drown. When your mind is so busy, you can drift away from what is happening in real life which include: dinner with your family and friends, dates with your partner, and even vacations with people you cherish. Be more active in the present and your future will truly thank you.
YOU FIND IT HARD TO MAKE NEW FRIENDS
Negative energy can eat away your courage. You will always doubt a conversation starter, and you will always doubt going near the person you like. If you keep on doing that, you’ll be full of what ifs instead of lessons learned.
NEGATIVE PEOPLE ARE EVERYWHERE
Are you beginning to feel that negative people are all around you even if you try your best to avoid them? You may be attracting them with your negative vibe. Energy attracts alike energy.
YOU ARE HAVING A LOT OF ARGUMENTS
Negative energy can close you off on accepting new ideas and mustering the courage to try new ventures. This can make you very defensive about what you do. Healthy debates become arguments that hurt the both of you.
YOUR FRIENDS ARE ALWAYS BUSY
If your friends are spending less time choosing to be with, it may be because of the bad vibes they feel around you. Bad vibes, like diseases, are contagious. They just don’t want to absorb the loneliness. That’s all.
OTHERS AVOID MAKING EYE CONTACT WITH YOU
Avoiding eye contact means they feel shy towards you. They probably don’t know how to react with your negativity.
MOST PEOPLE HAVE A CLOSED OFF BODY LANGUAGE
A closed off body language means their disposition is trying to protect them from your negative vibe. They also feel uncomfortable. It is normal. Negative energy will really make people uncomfortable, so if you want to start having a good time, you should let go of that negative energy.
PEOPLE ARE PULLING AWAY FROM YOU
People want good vibes. It is natural for people them to move away from the negative because it feels heavy and can ruin anyone’s day.
YOU ARE OFTEN ASKED IF THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG
If people ask you what is wrong, it means they are not seeing or feeling any good aura around you.
YOUR FRIENDS DON’T ASK HELP FROM YOU
A problem is a source of sadness, and to solve problems, your friends will turn to those whom they think can be a solution to their sadness. What can solve sadness? Positive vibes.
ANIMALS AVOID YOU
Animals are psychic. They are more sensitive to energy waves than human. If they end to avoid you, now you know why.
YOU ARE ALWAYS TIRED
Negative energy is a very heavy load. That’s why when were sad, we have drooped shoulders, falling eyelids, and a hunched back. This posture in itself is very tiring. Improve your posture, and you’ll immediately feel your mood improve, too.
ORGANIZING THINGS CAN BE THE MOST DIFFICULT JOB FOR YOU
Organizing things requires focus. Your negative thoughts can be a whirlpool you’ll get stuck in for hours. While you are distracted with these thoughts, it will be hard for you to focus on organizing because a negative vibe dictates that you listen to these whispers.
YOU ARE NOT GETTING PROMOTED
Leaders will handle a lot of people and if your boss can’t see you influencing others in a motivational way, you will never be given the opportunity of a promotion.
YOU’RE HAVING BREAKOUTS
Whether it’s being too distracted to practice hygiene or an overproduction of stress hormones, our skin reflects what we feel deep inside. Love yourself a little and pamper with positive energy.
YOU KEEP ATTRACTING THE SAME KIND OF DISAPPOINTING PARTNER
Like energy attracts like energy. You are getting the same kind of disappointing relationship because you are projecting negative energy. If you want better relationships, you have to work on cleansing yourself first from negative vibes.
PEOPLE OFTEN CHANGE THE SUBJECT
Positive people don’t want negative talk in their vocab. If you are full of negative energy, expect your friends to change the subject when you are talking negatively.
YOU ALWAYS TALK ABOUT COMPLAINTS AND GOSSIP WITH OTHERS
A negative vibe dictates a negative mindset. Hence, a negative vocab. It will all be that’s interesting to you if you are full of negative energy.
IF THERE IS ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE YOU, IT’S IMPATIENT
By this time you are probably already aware that frustrations are indications of negative energy. If you become frustrated a lot by not being in control, however, you are already on a different level of negative energy: impatience. Positive people are more secure of themselves. They are patient because they know things will happen the way they are supposed to be.
A negative person will always feel being attacked even if they’re not. Be careful.
YOUR PARTNER SHUTS YOU OFF
Endless arguments will make your partner shut you off for reasons that your partner knows you will never give up your point and try to understand the other side, and it’s just ruining her/his mood.
YOU FEEL HEAVY WITH CONFUSION AND TENSION
Negative thoughts will fill you with what ifs. If that is not a very tense and confusing state, then I don’t know what is.
HOW DO YOU TURN NEGATIVE ENERGY INTO POSITIVE ENERGY?
- Take ownership
Not everything is your fault and that goes the same for the people around you.
- Replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts
This can take a lot of time especially for people who have been through a lot of trauma, but practice makes perfect.
- Realize you have no control over your situation
Lose that need for control. There are things we will never be able to control, just like the weather.
Cleaning your house, workspace, or even your email can remove all of the negative energy you have to make space for new and positive energy.
- Bask in the sun and breathe some fresh air
Enjoy your environment. See the world. There'll be a time you won't be able to do that.
- Burn some incense
Do this as long as it is safe for your health.
- Smudge your home with sage
Sage has cleansing properties and the scent will relax your mind.
- Bring in some crystals
Crystals are good for cleansing negative energy and replacing them with positive energy.
