Protecting your energy is one of the most important things that we can do for ourselves. When we allow negativity into our lives it can have spiritual, physical, and mental implications. Your security is number one and it should be handled in a mindful and conscious way.
We should feel free, happy, and abundant every day, not dragged down by negativity. Unfortunately, we can find ourselves in situations that affect us. Office gossip, family drama, frenemies… the list goes on.
When we experience this regularly it can have a long-term impact. We must follow healthy practices every day to keep negativity at the door and face life head-on with positivity.
So how can you get away from negativity when it’s in your home, friendship circle, work environment, and just about everywhere else? With a few tips, you can regain control and create a happier and healthier lifestyle for yourself. Here’s what you can do to protect yourself from negative energy.
Strategy #1. Keep Your Friends Close… and Your Enemies Further Away
You are the company you keep, birds of a feather flock together, like peas in a pod… we become the people that we give our energy and attention to. If we are surrounded by negative people we will absorb their energy.
Preserve your time and spend it on people that leave you feeling happy, positive, and inspired. Being in the company of people who are bad vibes is draining. These energy vampires suck the life out of those around them.
Do what you need to do for you. If you have negative influences in your life then you need to make healthy decisions and separate yourself from them. You can love people from a distance and protect your energy in the process.
Ask yourself if the people around you add value to your life. Do they put you down? Constantly complain about life and moan about little things that are irrelevant in the grand scheme of things? Do yourself a favor and put yourself first.
Strategy #2. Focus on the Good
We can let negativity take over or we can control the way that we react to it. The question that you must ask is whether you are experiencing negativity or if you are aware of it. By being aware of our reaction to people and situations we give it power.
Instead of putting your energy and focus on negativity, focus on the good. This doesn’t mean that you are detaching yourself from reality but that you are choosing to look at the silver lining. This is a great way of protecting your energy as you are preventing negativity from having an impact on you.
Turn away from bad energy and find goodness within and without. Choose love over everything else and feel it permeate through every inch of your existence. There is no room for darkness in the light. Bad energy cannot exist in a mind that prioritizes positivity over all else.
Strategy #3. Set Boundaries
People will treat you the way that you allow them to. That’s the harsh reality that we live in. If we want to protect our energy we have to implement measures that will keep negativity at bay.
Laying out what you will and will not accept doesn’t make you a horrible person, it means that you respect yourself and are comfortable asking people to do the same. When you establish your boundaries, enforce them with compassion.
Approach negativity with positivity and it will melt away. Be firm and don’t be afraid to lay down the law in a peaceful manner. This is incredibly effective when you need to keep negativity away from you.
It’s ok to say no. Don’t feel like you have to say yes all the time just to keep other people happy. If something does not sit right with you, speak up. Express how you are feeling and make it clear where you stand.
Strategy #4. Create a Safe Space
Everybody needs a haven, a place where they can go to escape any drama or negativity that may be present in their lives. We should all feel safe and secure where we are. If negativity persists then we must make changes.
Your safe space can be anywhere, as long as it feels right to you that is the main point. It could be a room in your home, a place that you visit in your mind, or a specific spot in nature. Wherever it is let it be somewhere that lifts up your spirit and elevates your mood.
When you are in your happy space remember to switch off. Take this time to center yourself and rediscover your peace. Your wellbeing should come first above all else. If it doesn’t serve you then it doesn’t deserve you.
In the comfort of your sanctuary, you will be protected from negativity. Do something for yourself and remove yourself from bad energy and fill yourself up with goodness.
Strategy #5. Follow Your Intuition
Our gut is our inner guidance system that works to keep us away from bad situations and people. When you have a feeling inside that says “no don’t do it!” – listen. Following our intuition is one of the best choices that we can make.
Have you ever had a moment where you had a feeling that you shouldn’t go down a certain road or you shouldn’t believe something that someone is saying but you did it anyway? It’s almost certain that disaster followed not long after.
Protecting yourself from negativity can be achieved if we listen to that voice within. Don’t disregard it as a figment of your imagination. It is your 6th sense that is sharing the gift of foresight with you. It wants you to make the best decision possible to keep you out of harm’s way.
