Sometimes bad energy might pollute your home, workplace or frequent destinations. The nature of such negative energies can range from simple bad vibes to actual malevolent entities. No matter how easily they are dismissed as science fiction, such things are very, very real. Not only can they be the rope tying you back from your happiness but it can also make you physically unwell! However where there is life there is hope and besides, here are 7 ways to completely annihilate such influences from your surroundings.


Plants are living tangible air purifiers whose vitality also keeps bad vibes away. And their liveliness has been shown to uplift people’s moods and will increase positivity too.


Many a times, bad vibes can stay back long after the owners leave. However, sprinkling salt on carpets is a great way to erase the past. It removes bad energies and makes the space new, and your own.

Smudging Ceremonies

Burning certain herbs/spices to cleanse the aura of the surroundings has been a pretty prevalent trend in many countries and faiths. People still burn white sage to rid themselves of “bad ju-ju”. Burn it and rotate in an anti-clockwise manner.

Essential Oils

Not only do they cleanse vibes but also uplift moods and freshen up your spirits. Some well-known ones are frankincense, patchouli, lavender and ylang-ylang.

Remove Clutter

Clutter or stuff that is more or less useless, like bad vibes themselves take up space inside a home unnecessarily thus blocking positive energies and vibrations while they travel causing build-ups. Hence clearing the clutter up can help you free up positive energy while driving the bad vibes out while you do it.


Right from Chinese wisdom to Indian mystics, the effectiveness of meditation in driving out negativity and enriching the mind and body is well known.

Rearranging Furniture

Like removing clutter, re-arranging things and moving things about can cleanse the energy of the room. Moving things around helps clear out new spaces that good energies and vibrations can travel to while providing an escape route for the bad ones.
