SHAKTI DURGA gives you practical tips on cleansing your negative energy and a simple meditation to get you back on track

You usually only learn about the results of your daily low points when it begins to show up in your life in a physical dimension. But it has already begun to affect your unconscious by its effect in your energy body.

Every conversation you’ve ever had, every emotion you’ve ever experienced and everything that’s happened to you in your life, good and bad is sitting in your energy field.

So, how do you work on cleansing your energy body of the negativities that reside in it? Follow these simple and quick ways to clear your negative energy:

Salt Baths
Salt is very purifying and dissolves negative energy. This is why we usually feel better after a swim in the salty water of the sea and look forward to a day at the beach. If you don’t have easy access to the beach or prefer a normal bath instead, throw a handful of salt into your bath water.

Coffee Baths
Coffee helps destroy negative energy. Throw a tablespoon of instant coffee into your bath and see how amazing you feel. You can also add some salt for the ultimate purifying combination. If you are sensitive to caffeine, make sure you try this early in the day the first time you do it.

Try Turning Vegetarian
A vegetarian diet is the best for clean energy. Fish and poultry are lighter in energy and red meat can exacerbate anger. Pork and crustaceans have particularly dirty energy so best to avoid them if you want to feel the energy of lightness and joy.

When we sweat during exercise, negative energy leaves us. It is also particularly helpful when we are experiencing anger and frustration. That’s an age-old therapy. Exercise releases endorphins, your feel-good hormones.

Choose friends who are positive and happy

Being Around Positive People
The energy of people with positive energy pulls us into their positive fields with their positive vibes and in many cases, negates the negative energy we have. The company you keep is very important.

A Cure for the Monkey Mind

I am often asked the following question:

When I meditate, my mind is full of thoughts. I’ve tried to tell myself to concentrate and fully commit, but I get easily distracted and the effect of the meditation is not as good. How do I solve this problem?

This is what I suggest:

When your mind gets active during meditation of any kind, understand that your mind is going through a re-calibration. All of the backlog of stuck thoughts, is cleaning out! It took me at least a year to be able to mostly meditate peacefully, and yet even then there would be cycles of thought arising and sometimes cycles of emotion as well.

My suggestion is to persist, just switch to a mantra for a while, do three malas (a mala is repeating a mantra 108 time). The first mala usually has lots of thoughts, the second time things will have calmed down, the third repetition brings a lot of peace.
