Everyone wants to live a positive life and nobody wants to be in negativity. The problem is that sometimes we just do not have the control over the things in our lives and negative events and people may invade us and succumb us to negativity. Learning how to stay positive is important, but do not forget that protecting yourself from negativity is equally important too.
You cannot be successful and live a great life if you always submerged yourself in the negative energy around you. Whenever you want to act on your goal, someone negative will tell you it is impossible and distract you from moving forward. The moment you are feeling happy and your mood is great, something negative can happen and that takes away your joyful moment. And thus, it is important to shelter and protect ourselves from negative things, such as events and people around us.
How to get Protection from the Universe: Top 10 Outstanding Tips
When it comes to dealing with negative energy, the first thing most people come to understand is negative thinking. They think that negative energy is all about negative thinking and bad emotions. However, in a bigger context, it can be from the Universe. When you read the book, The Secret and understand how the Law of Attraction works, you will know that things happen for a reason.
Once, there was an avid reader of The Secret from Mumbai who followed the Law of Attraction principle and used affirmations daily. He explained how his positive energy has protected him from being killed in a bomb blast in Mumbai. Usually, he would travel the usual route to get to work, but somehow, he received a phone call and had to attend to another client in a different place. Guess what, in that day, the bomb blast took place, but luckily for him, he was saved because he traveled to another place and skipped the bombing area.
Not only that, in fact, he has avoided from the second bomb blast too. This was what he said in TheSecret.tv website, “I travel by bus every day from work to home. This day, because of the new call that replaced my initial plans, I had to divert my route to get to work and I was in the parallel area at the time the second bomb blast took place. If I had followed my daily routine, I would be stuck in the second place of bombing as I pass that place during the same time the bomb blast took place.”
What is more interesting to know is that the reader said he felt obliged to share his story because he practiced affirmation daily that he intends to live in a beautiful, secure and joyous universe and he is always protected by the Universe.
Somehow, his positive energy shielded him from the bomb blasts. Therefore, learning how to protect yourself from negative energy is important. Not only can that negative energy affect your mode and mentality, but also your life.
According to the Law of Attraction, everything is energy, including your thoughts. Therefore, your thinking and feeling will affect every area and event in your life. You may attract unwanted people or things into your life and wonder why things are always going against you.
Below are some of the signs that you have picked up negative energies and you need to cleanse them.
- You feel depressed out of the blue without knowing why.
- You get extremely tired and exhausted even when you have enough sleep.
- You get sick easily, such as flu, fever, headache, and sore throat.
- You lose your keys, phone, wallets, or something that you value.
- You spend unnecessarily and buy things that you do not really need.
- You are deeply in debt

The above are just some examples that you may experience when you are feeling negative. Below are some of the suggestions how you can protect yourself from negative energies that you may face in your everyday life. Learn them and apply them starting from today on.
1. Express Your Intention
One of the most powerful things that you can do is to express your intention that you want to get rid of the negative energies in your life. For instance, you can place both of your hands on your heart and say your intention out loud. You can also write it down on a piece of paper, and then either throw it away or let it burn. See all the negative energies thrown or burned away.
When you do this, you are telling specifically what you want from the Universe. You set yourself clear from negativity with clarity and strong intention.
2. Play Drums or Music in the Background
This does not mean that you need to have a drum at home. Everyone has a smartphone these days and you can simply go to YouTube and check out drum music. There will be plenty. Find one that you like and start playing the music in the background. If this is not working, you can go to a wooden desk and start tapping and drumming the table with your hands. The key is to get yourself move according to the rhythm so that you will keep yourself away from the negative energies.
Well, if you do not like drum music, you can choose any fast-pace or inspiring music. The only problem is that sometimes some music will make you nostalgic and brings back sad memories. Thus, be extremely careful with the music you choose to listen.
3. Just Laugh
Yes, many studies have shown that laughing is one of the best mental medicines. And the best part is that it is free to use and available for everyone. Laughing is a very powerful tool to protect yourself from negative energies because when you feel joyful, your vibration will be high and this will cancel out the lower vibration energies.
If you find that laughing or having a joyful moment is difficult, just fake it. Your emotion is created by your motion. When you laugh and make a big silly grin on your face, there is no way negative energy can attack you. People just cannot laugh and feel sad or cry and laugh at the same time. It is a contradicting behavior that will cancel out each other. Hence, when you laugh, you will automatically feel happy and the negative energy will be gone.
4. Skip like a child
As what you have learned above, your motion will determine your emotion. When you jump up and down, you are boosting your energy to a higher level. As a result, you will get rid of all the lower and negative energies within you. After the jumping, you will feel relieved and less stressful. More importantly, you will feel happier.
Yes, dancing is another great way to protect yourself from negativity. It does not matter what dance move you are trying to perform, as long as you dance and move your body, you will feel good. This technique is especially powerful when you combine it with playing uplifting or inspirational songs in the background. Your mood will be lifted higher and so with your energy vibration.
6. Write a Gratitude List
Writing down what you are grateful for is one of the most powerful ways to get rid of negativity and at the same time, put you in a grateful and positive mindset. Science has proved that when someone practice writing down and engage their thinking with what they are grateful for, they will feel happier and less stressful after the process.
Think about it, when you are grateful for something, the Universe will reward you more for it. When you constantly worrying about something, the more you worry and the more you think about it, the more it will come true to you. This is because your thoughts are things. And thus, when you feel grateful and thankful for things that you already have in life, you will have more of it.
7. Practice Affirmations
Your words are powerful and they can shape your life. Highly successful people use positive and inspiring words in their daily conversation. They do not use negative words such as “Impossible” or “I can’t”. When you say that you can’t, your brain will shut off all the possibilities because you are directly telling your mind that it is impossible. On the other hand, when you tell yourself that you can, you are giving orders to your brain to find a solution.
This is why affirmations work and why they are powerful. John Demartini, the famous chiropractor who is also a best-selling author and international speaker, said that one thing that changed his life and led him to success is through affirmations. Each and every day, he will repeat a short, simple, but powerful phrase, “I’m a genius and I apply my wisdom”. When you repeat your affirmations regularly, you conditioned your mind to believe it is true. And eventually, you will live your affirmations.
8. Join Others Who Are Positive
It is true that you will become who you mix with most of the time. Jim Rohn said that you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with, and he is absolutely right. The people you mix with will influence your thinking and hence, your energy level.
When you network, talk and mix with negative people who always blame, give excuses and complain about everything in life, they will suck your energy and turn you into a negative person as well. Researchers have found that what parents told their children will greatly affect the children’s lives.
So choose to mix with the right group of people. Network and make friends with people who are positive, who want to move forward and who always look at the bright side of life.
9. Practice Meditation
When you quiet your mind through meditation, you are alleviating yourself from all the negative energies within you. Meditation is a powerful technique to keep your focus, reduce your stress, and also protect yourself from all sorts of negativity. Successful people such as Oprah Winfrey, Arianna Huffington, Jack Canfield, Robin Sharma, etc, are practitioners of meditation. They practice meditation regularly each week.
10. Essential Oils and Incense
In this modern day, using the natural healing properties of essential oils and incense are common and has become popular as people started to see the positive effect from them. Essential oils like sandalwood, myrrh, and niaouli have good smells and cleansing elements. The olfactory sense links to your emotional system and hence enhances a healthy and positive state for you.
The use of incense is similar to essential oils. Incense is commonly used in Buddhism and some other religions. However, you want to make sure you are using natural incense and essential oils that are toxic free and without any artificial perfumes.
11. Take a Shower
If it is in the morning, it is suggested you take a cold bath. This is because the cold water will make you fresh and cleanse away the toxin from your body. And this is exactly what the world’s number one success coach did each morning. Tony Robbins told during an interview that one of his morning rituals including taking a cold plunge in his pool that maintained the water temperature at a brisk 57 degrees Fahrenheit. Usually, he would submerge himself for a full minute. He said that this “cold bath” practice has made him refresh, fully awake and prepares him for what is coming on the day.
These are some of the great ways how you can protect yourself from negative energies. Obviously, there are much more ways how you can do this, however, the above are great suggestions that you may want to choose a few and practice them daily. Find out what works best for you and make them your habit to shelter you from negativity.
