Have you ever woken up feeling energized and positive, then you go out and feel completely drained, angry or depressed? Do you sometimes feel like a crazy person with your emotions going up and down like a roller coaster, and you cannot understand why? Or do you ‘feel’ places and people that make you become very tired and sick, and you cannot explain it? You are absorbing others’ energy whether that is a person or a space. To help you understand this more I am going to give you signs and tips that you can use to identify and clear negative energy. If you have pets this is especially important for you to understand that what you absorb, your pets will take from you and absorb. Many people will tell me they don’t understand why their pets are now aggressive and biting, etc. To avoid this from happening it starts within you.  


Before we can go into how to identify and clear the negative energy, it’s essential that you clearly understand what negative energy is. Negative energy is negative thoughts that are trapped within a person’s mind, creating negative emotions and negative actions. These negative emotions which can be of any kind, such as fear, anger, jealousy, or even hatred can cause people to behave negatively. Negative energy within a person builds up over time until it is released through negative actions. For example, if you were to hold your anger inside, it would build up until you finally lose control and shout at someone. When someone emits negative energy, they’re draining your energy in one way or another. Some negative energy emitters may be aware of what they’re doing, but others may not.

How To Identify Negative Energy In A Person: The Signs

Now that you understand negative energy better, let’s look at how you can identify it. Have you ever met someone who just seemed to suck the energy out of the room? It is that person who makes you feel tired and emotional after spending time with them. It’s not always easy to tell what it is about them that has such a negative effect. Here are 7 of the most common signs of a negative energy person to watch out for, and limit time with or avoid at all costs for your health and well-being.

They Find Fault With Everyone and Everything

Have you ever been around someone who is quick to judge and pinpoint all your mistakes? They constantly complain about things no matter how good they are. If the answer is yes, then you’re dealing with a person clogged in negative energy. Someone who’s emitting a lot of negative energy will find fault in just about everything. They have a love / hate relationship with the world, which means they love to hate things and hate to love other things. They always try to find fault with everything and everyone around them and are critical of everything. The next time you see someone pointing out all the negative aspects of something or someone, know that this person is emitting negative energy!

They Try to Bring You Down With Them

Have you ever had an encounter with someone who, when even things seemed fine between both of you, managed to deflate your happiness anyway? Perhaps you were excited about something, but this person managed to make you feel less enthusiastic about it. Negative people often try to make others feel as miserable as they do. They think this will somehow strengthen their bond of friendship or relationship since they’re both “in the same boat.” When it comes to bringing others down with them, some people don’t always realize what they’re doing. It becomes so much a part of their nature that it comes out naturally in the form of conversation and behavior.

They Tolerate Little to No Disappointment

When someone tolerates little to no disappointment, that’s a sign of negative energy because the only way that they can effectively show how unable they are of letting go of their disappointments is by holding on to them until they affect them so badly that they feel suffocated! This means that constant negative thoughts are weighing down this person’s mind. If you see someone who gets angry or upset over trivial things such as being late, being interrupted while speaking, and similar things that are normal for most people, then know this person emits some form of negative energy. However small these ‘disappointments’ might seem to you, for them, it’s enough to cause an outburst or at least some form of annoyance. Because negative thoughts are constantly running through their mind, they can handle very little disappointment. They often feel cheated or shortchanged when they don’t get what they want.

They Can’t Handle Criticism

Negative people often fail to take criticism constructively. They either don’t listen at all or take it too much to heart and let it bother them. Either they get angry over something trivial, or they dwell on your words even after your talk is long forgotten. Both are indications that they’re emitting negative energy. If someone’s always getting angry or offended by your words, then know that they can’t handle criticism. These people are extremely sensitive and prone to getting hurt more easily and soon enough their entire emotional state of mind is affected. They might seem to take criticism ‘in stride’ on the outside, but inside, they’re seething at what you’ve said! They’ll go over and over your words until that frustration turns into anger and then it becomes directed towards you for hurting them in the first place! This is because their negative thoughts aren’t only affecting the way they act but also the way they take things.

They’re Afraid to Take Risks

People who can use their intuition effectively, without the burden of negative thoughts, act independently and bravely when needed! Since negative people are always afraid of losing something, they never dare to take risks. They think that taking a risk involves more ‘losing’ than it does ‘winning’. Because their negative energy is directed towards protecting themselves from loss, they’re constantly afraid. Instead of taking any chances, they prefer stagnating where they are. This is precisely why they don’t make plans. Whenever they’re forced to take a risk, they’ll try to find any and every reason not to do it. They may seem like the only reasonable ones, but deep down, their fears are what’s holding them back!

They’re Quick to Label Things as ‘Bad’ and Are Pessimistic 

Negative people are quick to label things as bad. If you tell them that something is good, they’ll argue that it could be better because they’re always finding faults with anything and everything around them! Their thoughts are so clouded by negativity that positive things don’t impress them. They’ll always see the downsides in anything before seeing its upsides, which is why you’ll never find them making any constructive suggestions. Similarly, when a person constantly sees the negative side of every situation, they become pessimistic. They always look at what could go wrong in a particular situation, and even if they see a slight chance of it going wrong, they avoid taking any risks around it. For instance, when offered something that sounds extremely good, their usual response would be, “Yes, but what if this happens?” That’s because they’re constantly looking at things with a pessimistic point of view and by doing this, it offers them more ‘protection’ against loss! If something works for someone else, they won’t try it out. They will probably scoff at the idea and mock you for even suggesting it!

They’re Secretive But Curious

Negative people are secretive about everything that concerns them and they’re also curious about others’ affairs! Since they’re not willing to reveal anything about themselves, they’ll always try to fish for information about other people. Once you become aware of this trait, you’ll realize that negative people are only interested in the lives of others because their own lives are so empty! Instead of working on making themselves happy, they look at what everyone else is doing and make it a point to criticize them for it! When they talk about others, you’ll notice that their eyes light up and their tone changes. However, whenever they’re asked questions about themselves or what they do, they get defensive and angry. The more negative energy they have, the more likely they are to interfere in someone else’s plans out of sheer curiosity. They typically want to know what you’re up to so they can find some way to discourage you from trying it because they don’t want you to get ahead of them!

Steps To Clear Negative Energy Within

We all have experienced being around negative people, and for some of you who are extremely sensitive to energy, you may encounter any or all these symptoms that include headaches, being moody with emotions up and down, your energy is drained, you feel exhausted, your body swells, or you feel body aches. For me, being so empathic, if the person’s energy or space is negative, and I have not protected myself, I can experience nausea and sometimes even feel sick to my stomach. If they are not grounded, I can get so dizzy that I feel like I’m going to fall over. I can also smell negative energy.

Here are some tips to help you clear the negative energy that you have taken on.

  • Place 1 cup of Epson salts in a bath and soak for 20 minutes and do 2 times per week
  • Play 417 hertz frequency music for clearing negative energy ( I use the FREE APP – Insight Timer. You can also find this type of music on YouTube)
  • Go out into nature and be present
  • Make meditation a regular part of your life 
  • Smile often, it will make you and others feel great
  • Move your body with yoga, tai chi, or dance
  • Go complaint free and walk away from those complainers
  • Write total truth letters to get out your anger, frustration, and other negative emotions
  • Write forgiveness letters (for total truth letters and forgiveness letters you do not reread or mail them)

While you may not be able to make negative people by nature positive, you can limit the amount of negativity they spread around. The moment you become aware of their negative energy, try to limit your interactions with them. This will go a long way in helping you with your negative energy removal journey! Don’t forget that negativity spreads like an epidemic, and if you’re around it for too long, it can and will affect your health, well-being, relationships, and your pets! So, surround yourself with people who constantly strive to stay positive!
