Positive energy is not just used for describing people. Everything is energy, even inanimate objects, so our environments also have vibrational energy. Increasing your positive energy will raise the vibrational energy of your work and living space and those who share these spaces with you. This will help you feel happier, healthier, more relaxed and more productive.

Here are a few tips to help you raise the positive vibrations in your living and working environments.

Communicate effectively and clearly with your family and coworkers
When we don’t communicate our thoughts effectively, it can cause confusion, conflict, gossip, and negative energy. Don’t participate in gossip or complaining and if possible, try to diffuse it in others. If you feel emotional while trying to communicate, slow down, take a deep breath. Don’t feel pressed to make a decision that can wait, instead say you will think about it. This will alleviate stress for you and will help make communication clear.

Maintain a positive attitude
We all have our moments and bad days but with a little effort, you can be positive most of the time and this will influence those around you. Any time you find yourself feeling low or negative simply take a moment to reflect on at least 3 things you are grateful for. Gratitude is a high vibration so will shift you and your space. Some other great ways to help maintain a positive attitude is to start your day with a positive morning ritual by reading, listening to or doing something positive, keeping a gratitude journal, being aware of your language and your thoughts, exercising, avoiding negativity on the news or other things you watch, social media (if certain people are always or often posting negative things unfriend them or hide their posts) friend people that are positive, give you tools for a better life experience and eliminate time spent with negative friends or even family members and surround yourself with positive people.

Keep everything neat, clean and well organized
Not only will a well-organized home or work space bring you positive energy, it will also help you keep it clean longer and easier, reduce stress, give you more time, make you more productive and help you feel more relaxed.

Add geodes, crystals and gemstones
Geodes, crystals and gemstones are wonderful for adding positive energy to the home or workplace.

Selenite will transmute negative energy to positive energy and is great to place in the four corners of your home and/or your bedroom.

Black Tourmaline is a protective stone that is very grounding. It repels and blocks negative energies and psychic attack and protects you from EMF’s. It will also cleanse, purify, and transform dense energy into a lighter vibration.

Amethyst is a wonderful stone to enhance our connection with the divine. It is a natural stress reliever and encourages inner strength. It is known to repels negative energy and attract positive energy.

Blue Lace Agate will enhance verbal communication and expression. It brings a sense of peacefulness and can alleviate headaches, depression, worry and insomnia.

Carnelian is grounding, increases physical stamina, brings courage, compassion, confidence and boosts creativity as it balances the solar plexus chakra.  

Make sure you cleanse and clear your stones regularly or whenever someone else touches them.

Add colors
Rich, saturated colors add warmth and love to your home and work space. Deep reds in the meeting areas of your home or office and can be invigorating. Deep blues and eggplant are energizing and lighter blue can be calming. White can bring a lot of positive energy but be sure not to use too much white as it can be overstimulating. Green with a little grey to it is extremely calming and restful.

Bring the outdoors inhouseleek-123130_1280
Sunlight can provide a natural, high vibrational energy to your space. Remove or open a few window coverings if you can. If you can’t, hang mirrors to reflect what little sunlight you get in your space. Indoor plants are also another great way to increase positive energy and clear stagnant air.

Use pleasing fragrances
Many candles, air fresheners or incense have toxic chemicals in them so make sure to use natural fragrances such as diffusers with essential oils but stick with mild fragrances like vanilla, cinnamon, citrus or use ones specifically to cleanse the air such as On Guard by DoTerra. This will eliminate risk to individuals with allergies, asthma or sensitivities to fragrances.
