How to Cleanse Your Energy After Being Around Toxic People

Do you feel drained after spending time with certain people?

Some people’s energy can leave you feeling exhausted, irritable, or maybe downright angry. It’s annoying that their energy affects you so much, but you cannot help feeling upset after being around them.

The best case scenario would be to not absorb this toxic energy to begin with. If only you could simply avoid certain people. But, as we know, that is not always possible.

No matter how hard you try to protect your energy, some people still get under your skin or catch you off guard with subtle jabs. Especially skilled narcissists.

If this happens to you, it’s important to cleanse your energy ASAP. You can then move on, stop thinking of this person, and forget about how much they make you want to scream.

Whether it’s a coworker, a family member, or an unavoidable Karen, being around negative people takes a toll on your mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

It’s not easy to strengthen yourself, but strengthen yourself you must.

Let’s discuss 7 ways to dissolve the negative energy of toxic people.

Cleansing Your Energy Starts With Your Mindset

No matter what tools you use to help cleanse your energy, your mindset is the key.

You have to decide that what this person says, thinks, or does does not matter. You have to be willing to be strong and resilient.

Although it helps to consider what makes them act this way, (Is it jealousy? Ignorance? Narcissism?) energy cleansing is not about them. It’s about strengthening yourself. The toxic person is unlikely to change, but you can.

These people are like advanced courses at the University of Life. They are set before us to force us to become stronger.

I don’t know about you but I’m ready to pass the class already.

Toxic Energy Versus Abuse

There is a fine line between toxic energy and abuse. Some people skate that line like an Olympic athlete.

If you’re in an abusive relationship or crisis, please get professional help. This article is not for you.

Now, let’s talk about some ways to help cleanse your energy. These techniques must be used in conjunction with a strong and determined mindset.

7 Ways to Cleanse Your Energy From Toxic People

1. Sunlight

Absorbing the powerful rays of the sun can help cleanse your energy after spending time with toxic people. Imagine the rays of light activating your inner strength, breaking energetic attachments, and empowering your energy to heal.

Sunlight is invigorating, restorative, and strengthening. My favorite thing to say is “Light codes, activate!” I use that affirmation for anything I’m trying to manifest- not just energy healing.

2. Water Cleanse

Another way to cleanse your energy of other people’s toxic cords is by using water. Any water will do.

You can take a shower or a bath, swim in a pool, or in any natural body of water. Take a walk in the rain, or even just drink a fresh glass of water.

Say a strengthening and cleansing prayer, affirmation, or other statement that works for you. Be intentional with your water and allow it to wash away the toxic energy. Water loves to wash things away.

3. Earth and Soil

Cleanse your energy by putting your bare skin to the ground. Whether you’re “earthing” (walking barefoot outside), gardening, or just laying in the grass, the earth can help cleanse and heal.

Many people today barely touch the earth, and it’s important.

4. Physical Activity

Sometimes, the best way to cleanse negative energy is to get your body moving. Whether it’s a brisk walk around the neighborhood or a heart-pumping workout at the gym, physical activity can help toxic energy get unstuck.

As you move, you can visualize your energy releasing the bad vibes. You can focus on feeling stronger physically and emotionally with each move you make.

5. Tree Energy

It might sound extra woo-woo, but leaning up against a tree feels amazing. For me, the sensation is like a big dose of calm energy.

If you’re feeling upset or frazzled, you can ask the tree to help cleanse your energy and thank the tree. I feel like the trees don’t mind if we lean on them, but if you feel like you’re asking too much of the tree, leave a coin, shell, or another offering.

Just look out for crawly things on the bark.

6. Crystals

Crystals, along with meditation or prayer, can help cleanse your energy and cut energy cords.

Some of the best cleansing crystals include:

    • Black Tourmaline- This crystal can absorb negative energy and dissolve it completely. It is my favorite protection crystal. Most black crystals or stones can help absorb, dissolve, or block negative energy.
    • Desert Rose- Especially helpful for when someone triggers your social anxiety.
    • Agate- There are many types of agate. This stone can cleanse and balance your energy.
    • Clear Quartz- Cleaning and clarifying, this crystal is full of pure positive energy.

7. Journaling

Journaling can be a powerful tool for cleansing your energy. It allows you to release pent-up frustration and stress. 

Journaling helps to detach the toxic energy you’ve absorbed from the rest of your energy body by physically getting it onto paper.

When you’re done writing, you can tear up the writing if you want to. The clarity and inner peace gained by writing can also help raise your vibration.

It’s good to write some positive things about the person and their energy, if possible.

Is this person ultimately strengthening your character? Making you more emotionally intelligent? Giving you tons of writing material? 

There’s always a silver lining. The Universe has its reasons for presenting you with the obstacles and difficult people you face.

Concluding Thoughts on Energy Cleansing

Dealing with toxic people can take its toll. In some cases, you can avoid or eliminate them from your life, but not always. When you cannot avoid or eliminate them, the only real solution is to strengthen yourself and cleanse your energy as needed.

Using crystals, sunlight, water, tree energy, and other natural forces may sound a bit woo-woo, but these things can help if your mindset is strong and determined.

You can become better at dealing with people you don’t want to deal with but must. And you can intentionally use nature to get rid of their toxic energy.

I hope you enjoyed this article on cleansing your energy after dealing with negative toxic people. May you get to the point where you are totally unaffected and a complete badass.
