Negative energy is something that we always thought that surrounded us all or is present in other people. But did you know it can be inside us? We could be unaware that we are attracting negative energy into our lives, and more scarily into our bodies and minds- all of which might be affecting our health.
Both positive, as well as negative energy, is present everywhere– in humans, and things and in the environment. Haven’t you noticed that sometimes when you meet someone, you like or dislike them right away? Well, that happens because we pick on the energy vibrations or frequencies from people and surroundings on our subconscious level.
Symptoms of negative energy in us
Imagine that your friend is talking about his or her illness or hardship in their life and about all about the struggle they faced. After you talk and interact with them, you feel very low and sad. This is negative energy and it is contagious. That doesn’t mean that it’s not OK to be sad or feel low at times! That’s natural; but when these kinds of feelings come again and recur frequently, you might be storing up this negative energy in your body.
How does negative energy make us sick
The following are the signs and symptoms when you are affected by negative energy.
You can get dull headaches when you are surrounded by, or absorb negative energy. Yes, headaches are caused by a variety of reasons. But if there is no cause found, and you are having a headache it can be probably due to negative energy.
These are signs that there might be negative energy in your environment. The tension might be held in your belly and not due to any illness.
Difficulty in breathing could be due to negative energy. Our lungs are the house of grief and that emotion is held therewithin. If we have the grief of some sort, that can cause breathlessness. The way to clear this is to treat the reason for grief.
- Anxiety/ depression
This can also be present in us due to negative energy. Depression is very difficult to shake off because you can’t think positively when you are depressed. It is more important to get to the cause of depression other than just treating its symptoms. You can take the help of a therapist to analyze and treat rather than not face it.
- Pain/ Chronic pain
Sometimes negative energy can show up as pain, as negative energy causes our body muscles to become tense and constrict. The stress of these muscles leads to tiredness and chronic pain. To set this right it is important to address the cause of the negative energy.
Negative energy causes our body to be tense or restless. Our mind or body is restless. You think negative and sad thoughts all the time. A shower or soak in the tub with sea salt will help! Even some meditation or yoga can help to calm your mind.
You tend to overreact or get sad or upset when dealing with certain people and also become confused and exhausted. This also may be due to negative energy. To deal with this, one has to practice more mindfulness and get rid of toxic people or avoid them the most. This will help the negative energy to clear up and be positive.
