Releasing Negative Emotions

Do you think it is actually possible to release all those negative emotions that we all experience every single day?

It may seem impossible and like a daunting task to take on, but it is possible and maybe not such a huge mountain to climb.

Now I am not going to promise you some miracle that instantly wipes out the negativity. It will take some practice and mindfulness on your part. I also cant promise you will get rid of all the negative emotions. What I can do is give you some tricks that if put into practice daily it will change your life and will release a lot of those negative emotions.

We have all heard that negativity attracts negativity and positivity attracts positivity. Like attracts like, what you put out in the universe is what comes back to you. While I do believe this I am not here to debate this with you, either you believe it or not. However you cant deny that negative emotions bring you down, and one negative emotion tends to lead to more negativity. It is unhealthy to carry these emotions around, they can make us sick.

Negative Emotions come not only from ourselves but other people as well, especially if you are an empath or a healer.

First lets look at the negative emotions that come from ourselves. We all feel anger, stress, disappointments and frustrations in our daily lives. They hit all of us at some point and there is no way to get around it. The key is to learn to let it go and not hold on to them. Ok, so how do we learn to let them go? First thing is acknowledging the emotions, feel them and accept that they are there. Take some deep breathes to slowly calm yourself. Now take that emotion and really examine it: Why am I feeling this? Is it really as bad as it seems right now? Is this worth bringing my energy down? How can I change this feeling? Is my negative reaction going to really help the situation at all? …etc. At this point you have calmly let the emotion in and then figured out why it is there and what is behind it. You have taken control of this negative emotion instead of letting it control you. Now you still my be experiencing the anger or other emotion but again you have control over it right now. If you have a stone or stones that helps release negativity(there will be a list of helpful stones at the end of the blog) this is the time to put it in your hand, rub it or roll it around, letting it help soak up the negativity and impart positive energy into you. Now you need to let it go. Just realize how unimportant that emotion really is, how unproductive it is. Think of ways you can turn that negative into a positive, or just say “I am not going to let this emotion get to me today”, “I am not going to ruin my energy with this, I have felt it and accepted it now I am going to let it go!”, “I am above this emotion, I am stronger than this and I have the power here”. If you have control over the emotion it becomes easier to just let it go, when the emotion has control over you it can seem impossible and almost painful to let it go. Take a few more deep breathes, breathing in the positive and letting out the rest of that negative emotion. Sometimes I also like to add at the end all the great and wonderful things in my life that I am thankful for. Please remember this will take practice, it may not work every single time at first. But the more you practice it the more it will work. Also that same emotion you just let go of very well may sneak back in later on, redo all the steps again until it stays gone.

I can hear some of you saying “Easier said than done”, and you are right. Like I said earlier in the blog this is not a miracle solution that will wipe all that negativity away. It is about being mindful and controlling your emotions. Now I try to practice this every time I get a negative emotion. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. I am still learning and still trying to gain control myself. But each time I do this and it works I grow a little bit, I raise my vibration a little higher, and I gain some happiness along the way to pass out to the universe and to others.

Next are the Negative Emotions that come from other people. Have you ever experienced being around another person when they have negative emotions hit them and before you know it your energy is feeling out of whack and bogged down with their negativity? That’s because that energy has entered your energy field and is now impacting you. How many times have you been in a bad mood and notice that it starts to roll down through your friends or family members that are around you? You have passed that negativity on to your loved ones. Being a healer is another way to pick up other peoples negativity. You are healing, you are taking out that negativity from another person and if you dont know how to block it from entering your energy field then you are soaking it into yourself unknowingly and unwillingly. These types of negative emotions is more about learning to block yourself from negative energy. Above I gave you tips to let go of negative emotions, even if you pick them up from other people you can still use the same techniques, remembering it does not belong to you in the first place makes it a little easier. So how can you protect yourself from picking them up? One suggestion is to start out every day with grounding and protecting yourself. There is a previous blog all about grounding and protecting so please refer to that. Starting you day out with that will put up a shield around you so it will be harder for negative energy from others to seep in to your energy field. You can shield yourself by wearing stones, carrying stones or placing them around your environment (home and work) that will block outside negative energy. Now if you are a healer you need to double up your efforts with each client you work with. So before every client you want to cleanse yourself, ground and protect yourself and cleanse any stones that you are using for protection. Sounds like a lot of work but if you make this a practice it will not seem so hard and you will get quicker at the whole process as well. Maybe have a few stones for protection and that way you can just pick up a cleansed stone for the next client and set up the others to cleanse while you are working with the next person.

Lets get into the stones that can help us release negativity and block outside negativity…(Please remember that all stones will need to be cleansed as they too hold negativity after you use them, see website for cleansing instructions)

Blue Calcite, Green Calcite, Chalcedony, Citrine, Green Fluorite, Jasper, Obsidian, and Black Sardonyx are all great at absorbing negativity.

Amazonite, Amber, Amethyst, Calcite, Emerald, Hematite, Lepidolite, Rose Quartz, Tourmaline and Turquoise all dispel negativity.

Black Obsidian and Black Tourmaline repels negativity.

Rutilated Quartz is great for healers as it filters out negativity.

Above all I think we can all agree that we could use less negativity in our lives and more positivity. So why not begin a practice that can help us get closer to that reality? Use my techniques and build on them or change them to suit your needs. As always if you have techniques that work for you please comment and share with us.
