How Energy Affects You

Updated: Apr 22, 2022

How Energy Affects You and How to Cleanse Your Energy

There is a spiritual belief that there is energy all around us, and it can affect us in many ways. Sometimes the energy is positive and full of light. Other times, it can be heavy or just simply dull. Then there are instances where it is dark, causing the hairs at the back of your neck stand on end.

Some quick questions: have you ever had a “gut feeling” about a place or a person? Have you ever been drawn to someone you simply felt you could trust? Have you ever walked in a room, and noticed the place felt dense, thick, or otherwise uncomfortable?

If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you may be someone is sensitive enough to pick on this energy I am talking about. You know how people say a dog can sense if someone/someplace is a good or bad? Humans have that gift, too. Sure, some are more sensitive than others, but at one point of our lives, we’ve all experienced a moment where (without any logical reason) we just knew if something was good or bad, based off what we perceived to be its “energy”.

How does this energy affect you?

The energy around you can greatly affect the way you feel, act, think, or perceive things. Positive energy can give you a sense of wellbeing, happiness, strength, and comfort. It can lift you up, and help you rise above any negative energy that may be trying to come your way. On the other hand, negative energy (whether it be from an outside source or something more internal) can weigh down on you mentally, physically, emotionally, and even spiritually.

Many people have come to here to Dual Crossroads, telling us how they feel as if there is a cloud all around them that just refuses to lift, or that they cannot sleep well at night. Some even say they don’t feel like their usual selves, and that there is weight upon them they cannot determine the source of. This is a common thing that can happen when dealing with negative energy around you. It makes your quality of life and sense of peace be off balance.

Some Ways to Cleanse the Negative Energy around You

If you feel off balance, and want to take steps to clear that energy, then great! First, thing you should do is take a moment to assess what’s causing this negative energy to be in your life.
