Toxic people and negative energy within our work environments… How can we even begin to combat that, before it starts to suck the life out of us!? Well, before we explore this from a holistic and vibration healing angle, we need to understand that negative people produce negative energy, we absorb that negative energy and it naturally brings us down a level (or two or three or four), depending on how much of it we absorb.
Our minds and bodies are like sponges. We literally absorb the chemicals that we clean with through our skin, we filter in and process information through the light that enters our eyes, and we are most definitely effected by the moods and attitudes of those who surround us. Too much negative energy in our environment causes us stress, fear, can contribute to depression, can effect your body, your sleep, and your physical health.
So how do we deal with toxic people in our workplaces? Well, we know we have no control over others and their actions and attitudes, but we can control how another’s energy effects our own.
Just like we put on sunscreen to keep our skin from absorbing damaging UV rays, we can do something similar with our energy field using healing crystals. By bringing a particular crystal into our energy field, we begin to alter its flow, and alter what it is that we absorb into our energy body at a vibrational level, or so the theories of vibrational crystal healing goes…
Our first step here is to put on our “vibrational sunscreen”, which can be achieved by introducing black tourmaline into our energetic field. It acts as a mirror, bouncing negative energy away from the body. Next we want to incorporate a filter for any external negative energy that may manage to get past our “sunscreen”. In this case, I recommend using red jasper. Thirdly, we want to include a filter for any internal negative energy that may be buzzing around as a result of worry, stress, and other negative emotions you may be subconsciously adding into the mix, in response to your stressful environment. For this, I recommend smoky quartz. It does a beautiful job of absorbing negative energy and recycling it into positive energy.
So how do you use these crystals, where should you put them, etc.? I always say it is best to keep them as close to your person (inside your auric field), as possible. In your pocket, tucked into your bra, worn as jewelry, etc. Carry them daily if you feel this is appropriate, but feel free to remove them once you are no longer surrounded by these toxic people. As I have said, these stones absorb, so you want to make sure to cleanse them nightly, or as needed, especially red jasper. In fact, if red jasper is not cleaned it has been known to actually shatter in people’s pockets, believed to be due to absorbing it’s max of negative energy flow… Crazy huh!? *I cleanse my crystals of negative energy gunk by holding them under cold running water for 20-30 seconds.
Now that you know how to keep negative energy away from your energetic field, let’s chat a bit more about a few things you can do to add some additional good-vibes into your workplace!
