15 symptoms of negative energy at home (and how to clear it)

Your home is supposed to be your oasis, a place where you can go and relax after a day of hard work.

But what if there are symptoms at your home that seem to be draining your energy instead of nurturing it?

Let me tell you 15 obvious signs of negative energy in the house, and how to combat them. Take care of yourself with these simple tips!

1) You feel weak

Some people feel weak when they enter their homes because we often associate this feeling with our vulnerability being exposed in front of others. That’s probably why you feel weak since you’re putting too much pressure on yourself to achieve more at work or in your relationships. It happens to the best of us.

You need to remember that you can’t control everything and stop putting so much pressure on yourself.

However, if this feeling is constant, there may be an underlying reason for it.

You might be feeling weak because there’s an unexplainable force in your house sucking your energy away.

Recall the times when you’re trying to relax, yet you can’t since it seems like your energy bar is constantly going down – and it usually happens when you’re at home.

How to clear it:

The first thing you should do is give yourself a break and let go of the things that are out of your control. Sit in a quiet place and ask the Universe for a break.

When you feel yourself getting weak, find an oil burner or a candle to provide your body with an extra boost of energy.

Light the candle and take a deep breath for about 10 seconds. Make sure to do it at least 3 times during the day, morning, noon or night. You can also put some safe-smelling oils in the room.

2) You often feel sick

It’s great that you get sick and recover quickly, but if this happens to you every now and then, it’s time to reconsider things.

There may be a reason why you keep getting sick every year for a certain period of time.

It can be your body preparing for a huge transformation or even a sign from Universe that something is wrong in your life.

Or worse, your home might be the cause of your sickness – negative energy is manifesting itself into your body and making you sick.

The negativity consuming your house goes through your body. That’s why you feel sick more often.

How to clear it:

If you want to be ready for the worst, get your house checked by an expert feng shui master.

A professional will be able to determine if there are any negative energy sources in your home – and hopefully, their solution is easy and cheap.

On the other hand, start by keeping yourself hydrated and living a healthier lifestyle:

– Go on a diet, the more natural and colorful the better. Avoid processed foods as much as possible.

– Drink more water, at least 8 glasses a day!

– Exercise regularly, even a walk around the neighborhood will do!

– Don’t smoke, drink alcohol or use drugs. Your health comes first!

Or better yet, why don’t you take time off and get away from the city? You deserve it. You might just need a break from your house for a while.

3) You feel restless

The feeling of restlessness is often associated with stress and temper tantrums.

However, this feeling may also be caused by negative energy in the house.

Have you ever felt like someone or something is following you wherever you go? If this is the case, then there probably is someone or something in your home that is causing you a lot of stress.

This negative energy might be draining your energy and causing you to feel restless and uncomfortable. You just can’t stay still in your home because you don’t feel safe.

How to clear it:

Test it out: go to a neighbor’s house to see if the feeling still remains with you. Is it still lurking around you?

If not, then it’s definitely negative energy in your house.

With this, what if you get advice and clarity by speaking to a gifted advisor?

Clearly, you have to find someone you can trust. With so many fake experts out there, it’s important to have a pretty good BS detector.

After going through a difficult time, I recently tried Psychic Source. They provided me with the guidance I needed in life.

I was actually blown away by how kind, caring, and genuinely helpful they were.

A gifted advisor can not only tell you how to clear the negative energies around your house, but they can also reveal all the hidden issues about yourself that’s draining your life energy.

4) Your home is full of clutter

You might not feel clutter in the way that I have put it but if your house looks like it was hit by a tornado, then you probably know what I mean. If you’re not sure what clutter is, it’s excess stuff that’s taking over your house.

It’s a sign of an unhealthy life fast approaching your future.

All these things are dragging you down and not allowing you to relax. You can’t get rid of them since somehow, their presence makes you feel comfortable.

Imagine this: how can you find peace if your house is full of stuff? Some of it may be necessary to your everyday life or hold a special meaning to you.

However, it still does not hold your attention and so you can’t relax in it. You get a general feeling of resentment whenever you think about getting rid of it and that’s when the negative energy gets stronger.

How to clear it:

Start by removing the clutter from your house and things that are holding you back from moving forward in life.

Make an extra effort to clear out your space, even if it means selling some things or throwing them away. I know that it’s going to take time but you can do it!

If you start with small things, maybe you’ll be able to feel the difference by the end of the day.

You can also find a good bagger to come and pick up all the excess stuff.

This is how you’ll start feeling lighter, while your home will start becoming more organized.

5) You often get headaches

This one’s pretty self-explanatory but headaches are a sign of tension.

If you have a headache all of the time, there are two reasons why. First, you might have an underlying reason for having headaches, like migraines or other medical conditions.

Second, there could be negative energy at your house – it’s draining you to its fullest and that is why you experience headaches regularly.

You might not notice the connection, but if you do get headaches in certain rooms in your house, there’s a big possibility that it’s caused by negative energy of something else.

How to clear it:

To counter this, if you know of someone nearby to cleanse the house, do it as soon as possible. Cleansing your space should be done at least once a year.

Then, do breathing exercises like yoga or meditation to help clear your head.

If this sounds good to you, I highly recommend watching this free breathwork video, created by the shaman, Rudá Iandê.

Rudá isn’t another self-professed life coach. Through shamanism and his own life journey, he’s created a modern-day twist to ancient healing techniques.

The exercises in his invigorating video combine years of breathwork experience and ancient shamanic beliefs, designed to help you relax and check in with your body and soul.

After many years of suppressing my emotions, Rudá’s dynamic breathwork flow quite literally revived that connection.

And that’s what you need:

A spark to reconnect you with your feelings so that you can begin focusing on the most important relationship of all – the one you have with yourself.

6) You’re having recurrent nightmares

Nightmares are a form of anxiety. So it makes sense that if you have recurrent nightmares, your home could be causing them. Nightmares are a way to deal with an unresolved issue in your life.

They can be caused by different things but it’s usually something that you avoid facing.

For example, maybe you’re being bullied at work and there’s no one to help you out or maybe your marriage is in trouble and you’re afraid to leave your spouse because of the added complications that could arise from it.

Having nightmares could really distort your opinion of your home.

How to clear it:

Get help from someone who performs home cleansings regularly and ask them what they think is causing the nightmares. They will know exactly what’s going on in your house.

If that sounds a bit of a task for you, then try to light some candles or incense in different corners of your home to balance out the energetics. You can also do this before going to sleep at night.

When doing this, keep in mind that your surroundings can reflect your subconscious mind and might be affecting you.

All in all, it’s not an easy process but it’s definitely worth it.

7) You’re having arguments with the person/people you’re living with

jumpstory download20220807 145424 2 15 symptoms of negative energy at home (and how to clear it)

If you’re sharing your personal space with someone and you’re having arguments, this means that some negative energy is causing you to be uncomfortable around each other.

Yet evidently, this can happen when you’re living with someone who has depleted energy. They’re either depressed, holding on to something from their past and/or a little bit selfish.

The arguments seem to come out of nowhere and they’re focused on a small, negative topic.

How to clear it:

There’s no easy way to do this but to talk to them so that they understand what you’re actually experiencing. They have the ability to transform their energy and clear out the negative energies around them.

If they become aware, they’ll become more conscious about their behavior and how it might be affecting you, especially if you’re family members.

8) You’re seeing shadows in your peripheral vision

This is one of the most mysterious phenomena that almost no one understands. These shadows usually appear in places where you’re the most comfortable.

When you see them, there’s no way to know for sure what’s causing them. Usually, it’s not a bad sign and is caused by negative energy in your house or by something outside of it.

It seems harmless, but just the thought of it makes you uncomfortable, right?

It’s definitely a sign that something is out of balance in your surroundings but that doesn’t mean that the energy is bad or something bad will happen.

How to clear it:

There’s not much an entity can do to harm you if you don’t actually allow them to do so.

You’re most likely experiencing the energy of a body that has passed on.

Get rid of any negativity that you have around you and talk to someone who performs space cleansings regularly. They’ll be able to explain if the shadows are caused by something else or not.

I mentioned how helpful the advisors at Psychic Source were when I was facing troubles.

9) You’re lacking passion and inspiration

What’s the point of life if you’re feeling uninspired?

No matter how hard you try, you can’t feel like everything is going smoothly and it’s not because of a lack of effort.

It seems like your home is making you feel dependent and uninspired. If you feel like this,  it’s possible that the energy in your home is making you feel bored and dull every day.

This also happens when people feel drained after working a lot.

The worse is if it’s also affecting your relationship with other people, yes, it’s possible. Maybe they’re having the same problem or they’re feeling uncomfortable around you because of the energy you’re bringing.

How to clear it:

First, take a look at the energy that’s around you and explore what it is.

Is there any stagnant energy in your house?

Is there something in the energy that could be causing this?

Energy has a way with us. It’s possible that you have a little bit of stagnant negative energy in your home that’s impacting not only on your physical being but also on your mental state.

It’s time to stop living with it and find a way to solve the problem by clearing it out of your home.

Also, find a way to discover little inspiration every day. It’s unlikely that you’re going to find it in every corner of your house but it’s definitely in other places as well.

Look for inspiration on social media, read inspirational texts and try to spend time with people who bring out the best in you.

You just need a little motivation by finding it outside of the house. If these people don’t exist in your life, don’t worry; there are other ways to do it.

10) You keep having negative thoughts every day

jumpstory download20220807 145459 2 15 symptoms of negative energy at home (and how to clear it)

This doesn’t mean that you have OCD. But if you’re still having these thoughts, then it’s time to do something about it.

Negative thoughts are sometimes caused by your environment, especially if you’re living space is negative in any way.

It’s not only affecting your mental state, it’s also affecting your physical health as well.

It would be tiring if something nice has happened in your life yet you cannot fully appreciate it because of these thoughts.

How to clear it:

If you live in a place where your energy is being drained, you’re not going to be able to make positive changes in your life. Dealing with negative thoughts is a lot easier when you’re feeling good about yourself and your surroundings.

This is not a very easy process, but with the right guidance, you can do it and make a huge difference in your life.

Clear your mind from negative thoughts, surround yourself with positive energy and focus on the good moments of your life. Your mind is a powerful tool, use it to find peace and achieve well-being.

Remember, you’re always in control of your life so make the choice to be happy every day.

You want to create a space that is positive and vibrant.

You don’t need to go through this alone, though! Although it’s completely normal for us to want some privacy sometimes, it’s healthy to ask for help from others when we need it.

11) You feel disconnected from your life

The way that you deal with things in your life depends on how you react to them. If you’re not feeling connected with yourself, the factor influencing it most likely is the energy in your home.

You’re living inside of a negative space which can be draining and can cause a lot of discomforts. Everything about your day-to-day life seems to be out of balance and no matter how hard you try to change it, nothing is happening.

Feeling disconnected in life isn’t great, but it can be good if you realize this is a point in your life that’s affecting your energy.

How to clear it:

Make a list of everything that’s affecting you in every aspect of your life and see if there’s some positive change that you can make.

If there’s nothing that you can do about your energy, the only thing you can really do is to create a space for yourself that is positive.

Try to talk about these things with someone who can offer you insights and advice on how to change your environment.

If these things aren’t possible, maybe it’s time to find a therapist or seek some advice from someone who’d be able to shed some light on this.

Final words

How you live and how you feel about yourself will determine how you see the world.

There are a lot of emotional things that need to be worked out and one of these things is living in a negative space. Although it’s easy to ignore them, try not to allow it at all costs.

Although some negative energy is natural in life, there are times when we have taken it too far. You might need to get some advice from someone who knows a lot about energy and is able to guide you toward the right path.

Do what it takes to make your life the best it can be because it’s worth it.

That’s why I recommend speaking to the folks over at Psychic Source.

I mentioned them earlier on. When I got a reading from them, I was blown away by how kind and genuinely helpful they were.

Not only can they give you more direction on how to get rid of the negativities in your own home, but they can advise you on what’s really in store for your future.
