10 signs of negative energy at home (2024)

Your home is supposed to be your sanctuary, the place you feel safe and good.

But what happens when you suddenly feel negative energy around your house?

If you’ve been suspecting that there is negative energy in your home, you might want to find out some actual proof of that happening.

After all, you want to be sure what is going on so that you can do something about it, right?

This is why I’ll show you a bunch of signs that there is negative energy at home so that you can be sure of what is going on!

1) There is a foul smell

The first sign that something is wrong with your home is the smell.

Bad smells can definitely be a sign of negative energy in your home. This is especially true if you’ve checked everything and haven’t found a physical culprit for that bad smell.

If you are noticing a foul smell, it might be a sign that you are dealing with some type of mold or bacteria that is affecting the air quality of your home.

If you have a lot of humidity in your home, it can cause mold and mildew to grow.

If you are smelling something like a rotten egg, it might be a sign that you have an issue with your sewer pipes.

So, before you jump to conclusions of negative energy, it is actually super important that you check for these things as well.

You don’t want to let things like mold go unchecked, it can have detrimental effects on your health.

However, if the smell has no physical cause, it can indicate bad energy in the home, which could mean that someone is mad at you or that something you have is keeping bad spirits around.

No matter what the cause of the smell is, it is important to act quickly because it can be very unhealthy, both physically and spiritually.

But apart from the smell, have you noticed changes in the way you interact with people at home?

2) There are lots of fights and arguments

If you have a family that always fights and argues, this might be a sign that there is some serious negative energy in your home.

If you notice that your family members are constantly fighting and arguing with each other, it might be a sign that there are negative emotions in your home.

This is especially true if this behavior is not normal and you didn’t use to have this issue in your home.

It can be a sign that someone is harboring negative emotions and that it is affecting everyone who lives in the home.

This is why it is so important to deal with any negative energy in your home as soon as you notice it. The longer you put up with it, the worse things can get, no matter how difficult it might initially seem to fix the problem here.

To remove this negative energy from your home, you might want to invite someone like a priest or a psychic to perform an energy cleansing ritual.

However, you can also do rituals yourself, whether that’s burning some sage or simply visualizing your space being cleaned.

The thing is, there might be some underlying energy that is causing these arguments and it may not even be anything malicious.

You see, maybe someone is struggling with something personal and as a result they are letting it out on their loved ones.

Regardless of the cause, it is best to deal with this negative energy so it doesn’t negatively affect everyone in your home.

But sometimes, the signs of negative energy are more personal:

3) You suffer from nightmares

If your home is under a negative energy and you are having nightmares every single day, you need to take action and remove the negative energy from your home.

If you are experiencing nightmares, it might be because you are not sleeping well.

Sometimes we don’t sleep well because our minds are overactive and we can’t quiet them down.

If this is the case, you might want to try meditation or some other relaxation technique before you go to bed.

You can also combine these relaxation techniques with an energy cleansing ritual. You can also consult a psychic to find out what’s causing your nightmares and how to stop them.

The thing is, nightmares can have thousands of causes, so it’s not necessarily “bad energy” in your home.

Maybe you are subconsciously dealing with something difficult and your nightmares are the result of that.

Regardless of their root cause, if you are experiencing nightmares, you need to take action. You can’t let these dreams affect your life to the point of not being able to rest properly.

But sometimes, this energy can also affect the way you think when you’re awake:

4) You can’t think positively

10 signs of negative energy at home (1)

You shouldn’t be thinking positively all the time, but if you can’t even bring yourself to look at the bright side in your home, that is a sign that there is something seriously wrong.

If you are feeling like you constantly want to escape from your home, and you can’t think positively at all, it might be a sign that you have negative energy in your home.

You can clear this negative energy by placing crystals, burning incense, and doing an energy cleansing ritual.

Now: the thing is, we get sold quite a lot of crap when it comes to spirituality.

You could spend tons of money on cleansing rituals and tools that help you with your energy, when in reality, more often than not, it’s just something you can do yourself without any help.

There are lots of spiritual concepts out there and without any doubt, many of them have some truth to them.

However, there is also lots of toxic spirituality that might leave you feeling powerless over your own emotions because you think some “negative force” is the cause of it all.

When that is the case, it’s important to take back your power and identify what might not be very beneficial in your life.

In this eye-opening video, the shaman Rudà Iandê explains exactly how you can spot these toxic spiritual thoughts and what to do about them.

Not being able to think positively is a perfect example of this – it’s not a negative force in your home, there is simply something blocking you from feeling positive right now, and that is something you need to process and work through!

My next point is quite similar:

5) You have no energy when you are at home

If you notice that you have no energy when you are at home and you feel like you are in a daze, it might be because there is negative energy in your home.

When you have negative energy in your home, it can affect you mentally.

If you have weak energy, you might have a hard time taking care of yourself and doing things you need to do.

Sometimes, this negative draining energy can come from another person and it can affect the people around you.

You can clear the negative energy from your home by performing an energy cleansing ritual, burning incense, and visualizing white light.

But if this negative energy is affecting you mentally, you might want to consult a psychic or a healer to find out what’s going on.

The thing is, you need to find out what is draining you so much. Is there a person, or are you spending a lot of time on things that aren’t nourishing your energy?

If it’s the latter, you might want to focus on doing the things that make you feel good and that help you grow as a person.

Just remember: your home is supposed to be a safe haven. When you have negative energy in your home, you can’t feel safe and comfortable there.

Figure out why you are so low in energy and try to change your habits a bit!

6) You have no inspiration or passion at home anymore

If you notice that you used to have a lot of passion and inspiration in a certain area of your life and now you don’t anymore, it might be a sign that your home is under a negative spell.

Now: there are lots of reasons why you might be losing that passionate spark in your home.

One of them being that you simply haven’t spent enough time doing the thing that you used to love.

You can clear the negative energy from your home by visualizing the space being cleansed and by performing an energy-cleansing ritual.

Most importantly, try to bring that passion back into your life by spending more time doing the things that make you feel good and that make you grow as a person.

Get out of the house and have some new experiences – sometimes, that’s exactly what you need in order to feel inspired again!

7) You see shadows around you

If you notice that you are seeing shadows in your home, it might be a sign that there is negative energy present in your house.

You might see shadows of people around you or you might see shadows that look like hands or claws.

If you see shadows like this, it might be a sign that you have a dark or negative energy in your home.

First off, you don’t have to be afraid, nothing can happen to you.

All this could signify is that there is something you are afraid of that needs to be addressed.

If you follow your gut feeling and you want to get rid of the negative energy, you can try burning incense, visualizing white light, placing crystals, and doing an energy cleansing ritual.

You might want to consult a psychic or a healer to find out what’s haunting you.

But don’t worry, there is most likely nothing “evil” in your house, it could literally just be a manifestation of your own worries or negative thoughts that is playing mind-tricks on you.

So: if you feel like there is something shady in your house, it might be time to give yourself a bit of an energy boost.

Keep doing the things that make you feel good, and don’t let doubt into your life.

Once you learn the way for dealing with this negative energy, you will be able to use it to your advantage and empower yourself!

Another great energy-radar are your pets:

8) Your pets are stressed out

10 signs of negative energy at home (2)

If you notice that your pets are stressed out, this might be a sign that your home is under a negative spell.

If you notice that your pets are constantly hiding, sleeping, or refusing to eat, this might be a sign that your home is under some negative energy.

Now: before you do anything, it’s best to get your pet checked out by a doctor and make sure that there is nothing wrong with them.

Oftentimes, when animals are sick, they will behave the exact same way as when there is some negative energy.

So: if you know that there are no physical reasons why your pet is looking this way, you might want to cleanse your home of negative energy.

Sometimes, the reason why your pet is feeling this way has nothing to do with your home, but rather with something else in their life.

Maybe you have not been in a very good mental state lately – pets can actually pick up on that and it can cause your pet to act this way.

If you want to learn more about how to get your pets into a better mood, try to really lift your own spirits and spend time doing things that you love.

And don’t forget: you are not alone!

It’s not easy to cope with negative energy, and your home can definitely feel like a dark and lonely place.

But let me tell you, it’s definitely possible to take back control of your home, and actually open up the windows and doors to bring some light into the room.

Even if everything seems dark at first – remember that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.

But sometimes, that light is hard to see, especially when you have lots of bad luck!

9) You have a lot of bad luck around the house

If you notice that you are having a lot of bad luck in general, it might be because there is negative energy in your home.

Bad luck is a sign that your home is under a negative spell.

You might notice that you are always running late, or that you lose things, or that nothing good happens to you.

Sometimes, it can feel like the universe doesn’t want to help you – but in reality: it’s nothing more than bad energy in your home!

To get rid of this bad luck, you have to cleanse your home of this negative energy first.

And sometimes, bad luck is simply a phase that we have to go through, so don’t worry too much about it!

Sometimes, our life needs to be a bit unpredictable and messy in order for us to grow as people.

If you feel like you’re constantly having bad luck and that nothing good ever happens to you, it might be time for you to cleanse your house of negative energy.

10) You are restless and tired

If you feel like you can’t sit still and you feel restless all the time, it might be because there is negative energy in your home.

If you feel like you are constantly tired and feel like you can’t do anything, it might be because there is negative energy in your house.

To clear the negative energy from your home, you can place crystals, burn incense, and do an energy cleansing ritual.

The best way to protect yourself from negative energy is to surround yourself with positive energy and light.

Whenever I feel restless and tired, it’s also often related to being anxious in general and having too much on my plate.

I always find it helpful to sit down and really clear my mind, so I can answer the most important questions in life.

And you know what? If you feel like there is a lot of negative energy in your home, it might also be because you have been holding this energy in for too long!

Don’t be afraid of the negative energy

If there is one thing I can tell you today, it’s that this negative energy in your home is nothing to be afraid of.

Quite the opposite, these are all opportunities to look at something that isn’t quite working out in your life right now.

You see, these signs point to things that could be improved, whether that’s your own mental state, your relationship with the people around you, or simply your energy levels.

If an energy-cleansing ritual will help you to feel at ease, then, by all means, go ahead and do it!

However, remember that the power over your surroundings and your energy is always within you, you don’t need anything else for that.
