Goodbye negativity Hello positivity! 5 tips and a cleansing meditation
“We can bring positive energy into our daily lives by smiling more, talking to strangers in line, replacing handshakes with hugs, and calling our friends just to tell them we love them.” Brandon Jenner
Have you ever felt that your energy was being zapped by other people?
Or that you are were being drained by a situation at home or work.
You just wanted to run away from it all or curl up in a huddle and wish it would go away?
Sometimes when negativity creeps in, efforts to find the much needed peace and calm can feel like a herculean task.
Especially when everything feels out of balance on the outside, the sense of overwhelm can just take over and leave no room for positivity or peace.
Negativity can arise from many situations. Sometimes a simple fight at home or work can be responsible for upsetting the entire balance of emotions.
This is exactly what happened to me.
When I worked in the corporate world, I had a boss who was never happy with whatever I did at work. This often led to me to be stressed out most of the times.
I even brought home my stress and had the worst fights ever with my family members.
What’s more this negativity translated to non- performance at work and even showed up on my appraisals.
It was many years later that I attended Breakthrough Coaching with NLP, with Dr Rangana Rupavi Choudhuri (PhD), that I learnt how I was programmed to act and behave in times of stress.
I learnt about what triggered me and only then was I able to understand how to not let negativity affect me .
Sometimes the outer world is a simple reflection of what goes on inside us.
While we feel that all negativity comes from outside or others, most often than not , you would find the issue within yourself.
After attending EFT In Mumbai, I was able to get to the root of the negativity inside of me and eliminate it from there.
Author and Coach Deepak Chopra says, “As is the microcosm, so is the macrocosm. As is the atom, so is the universe. As is the human mind, so is the cosmic mind.”
This all translates to only one thing. Negativity can be effectively removed if we eliminate it from deep within ourselves.
Here are 5 important tips put together by Dr Rangana Rupavi Choudhuri, to eliminate negativity from within. (1)
These are the same steps that help me every time I get an indication of a negative situation arising and afterwards I am left feeling positive, excited and yet calm and centered.
Once you know how they are so easy to do. So here are the steps below.
TIP #1 – Shake off the negative energy
Animals are used to having a good shake off, leaving them feeling at peace and energised.
So shake off the negative energy by following these steps:
- Stand up and take a few deep breaths from your nose and exhale through your mouth
- Shake your feet one at a time.
- Now slowly starting shaking your legs, hips, shoulders and arms.
- Shake off all the negative energy from your body.
- When you’re done stand still and place your hand on your heart.
- Feel the energy of positivity pulsating as raised vibrations through out your body spreading inner peace.
TIP # 2 – Detach from the negativity
A negative attachment can arise at anytime as a result of a person or situation that triggers a feeling of being upset, angry, fearful, sad, hurt, guilty, disappointed or shut down.
Examples of negativity situations involve being scolded by a loved one, political agendas at work, hurtful communications, verbal abuse and toxic family arguments.
You can use a simple process known as detachment (2) to create distance between any person or situation and detach from the negativity or dis-empowering feelings leaving you feeling in control and more centered.
Begin by bringing into your awareness what issue or problem needs to be resolved.
Then make a prayer or intention to be free from the old problem or challenge.
- In one of the circles imagine yourself.
- In the other circle visualize all your negativity or the issue
that you have and want to detach from.
- Take a few deep breaths and visualise this for 2-3 minutes.
- When you are ready you may open your eyes.
“The truth is no one can take your power from you. Only you can choose to give it away.” Dr Rangana Rupavi Choudhuri (PhD)
If you wish to go deeper with this process you can download this free booklet on Creating Inner peace and Harmony by Dr Rangana Rupavi Choudhuri (PhD).
The process will help you to cut the ties that bind and free yourself from negative attachments.
It begins with an initial visualisation for 2 weeks and at the end of the 2 weeks a meditation to cut the ties that bind.
TIP # 3 – Protection circle around you
The purpose of a protection circle is to allow only positivity in and to have all negative energy simply bounces off you. It creates safety and a sense of inner calm and control.
- Take a few deep breaths through your nose and exhaling through the mouth
- Visualise a bright white protective light all around yourself.
- This is your protective light and only positive energies can enter your protective circle and all negative energies simply bounce off.
TIP # 4 – Walk away from negativity
While this may seem like a really difficult task, sometimes it benefits us to simply walk away from a toxic situation and physically cut the ties to a negative person.
This can be a liberating experience where you are letting yourself know that your needs are important and that you are worth feeling empowered.
TIP # 5 – Inside out clearing
Since the world around us are merely a reflection of what is happening inside, It really helps clearing the negativity from within.
Meditation is a very effective way to eliminate negativity from within.
I love this free healing audio by Dr Rangana Rupavi Choudhuri (PhD) for clearing negativity from within. It will leave you feeling positive, calm and refreshed.

In closing, while it is really important to eliminate negative energies from within, it is also important to build a protective circle and constantly reinforce it with meditation and other techniques to constantly have positivity and inner peace throughout.
