Himalayan salt lamps move aside, there's a better way to enrich the space you're living in.
If you've ever felt uneasy inside your own home or been experiencing a lot of stress or health problems lately, there's a way to get to the bottom of what's happening.
Last year, my husband and I decided to switch to a smaller home after our two kids moved out. We moved to a relatively old suburban area known for its friendly community.
Everything happening outside the walls of our home was fine, but inside our home, we never felt comfortable.
Our financial life was suddenly in shambles, my husband got arthritis, and we were both feeling immensely stressed.
At first I thought this was happening because we missed our old place and living with our children, and so I tried to give it some time to get used to the new house.
To no avail, I let people in the community know how I was feeling, and most of them were shocked.
One woman got in contact with me a few days later and told me a trick she learned from a friend who had a similar issue.
She told me to put three common household ingredients in a glass of water and let it sit for a day.
How you may ask this has to do with the feeling I had about having a "bad energy" in my home?
Let's just say I was shocked by the results... And if you're still skeptical, I'll tell you why this works.
- 1 tablespoon of vinegar
- 1 full glass of water
- 1/3 sea salt (in accordance to the glass being used)
Pour the sea salt in your empty glass. The salt should cover about a third of the glass.
Fill the glass with water and add vinegar.
Hide the solution in a room where you feel most uncomfortable in.
If you're unsure, put it somewhere in the living room. Leave it for 24 hours, and make sure no one moves it.
After a day, if you see the water in the glass is still the same color, it means that there are no negative energies in your home.
However, if the glass has changed color, and the texture of the solution has changed in any way, this is a sign that you've been right about having a negative energy in your home.
If this is the case, repeat the process several times until the glass doesn't change in any way.
Keep in mind, when discarding the negative energy, flush it down the toilet.
Why This Works
It's strongly believed that people can bring or leave negative energies, which must have been the case when my husband and I moved into our new house.
Something was left, and we had no idea how to deal with it at first.
Ancient cultures believe that sea salt has the ability to trap and cleanse bad energy, and for that reason, this method of ridding a negative force in your family's life is so effective.
If you're looking for a different solution to combat the bad energy in your home, place these indoor plants around your house to cleanse the atmosphere and ward off evil forces:
Plants That Remove Bad Energy
1. Peace Lily
Buying these gorgeous flowers from IKEA will do you no good, other than look pretty in a corner.
This plant improves the air quality in your home by eliminating harmful toxins and allows for the flow of positive energy.
The best part about this plant is that it requires barely any maintenance. If this negative energy is centered in a dark room, the peace lily will still be able to work its magic.
Rosemary is not the most beautiful herb out there, but it does smell heavenly.
This pleasant-smelling plant has powerful effects on spirits, especially if it's burned. Many cultures burn rosemary to signify that they're getting a fresh start in life.
Rosemary also contains antibacterial and antioxidant properties that help you to sleep.
3. Holy Basil
This delicious herb is believed to emit an energy that protects the home it grows in.
If your family is going through a rough time and can't get along, basil leaves encourage happiness and prevents unnecessary conflict.
4. Spider Plant
This plant is not as scary as it sounds.
If it wasn't for the spider plant's long, narrow leaves, it would have no detoxify properties.
These plants are perfect to clean the air quality in your home and gradually ward off negative energy.
Ferns are famous for their ability to purify the air. I always keep these long leaves hanging close to my front and back door.
This plant will not only help to keep bad energy away from your home, but it will also bring you happiness.
