3 Foolproof Ways to Deflect Negative Energy

Have you ever noticed you feel happier and calmer around some people, but anxious and stressed around others? With or without realizing it, you are consciously aware of people's energy. Certain friends, colleagues and loved ones radiate positive energy and others negative energy. A person's energy is formulated from a combination of their past, their mindset, and their thought patterns. Whether we realize it or not, we can often quickly feel and absorb other peoples' energy. That's why sometimes we take an instant dislike or like to someone we just met without understanding why - it's just 'a vibe' you feel - often because we're picking up on their negative energy.

3 Foolproof Ways to Deflect Negative Energy

Positive people radiate love, happiness, and kindness, so we instantly feel drawn to them and content when we are around them and their positive vibes.

Negative people emit negative vibes in the form of unhappiness, judgment and putting others down, which makes us feel insecure and on edge around them. Negativity can be contagious, which is why our intuition transmits signals to our brain to avoid negative people.

There are ways to shield your energy from negative people. Here are a few ideas:

#1 Exit the negative energy field and do something that makes you happy to psychologically 'wash off' their negativity.

#2 Understand how to control and protect your energy. If you are badly affected by someone's energy, avoid them. If you have to be around this person, put on your invisible energy shield - be content in your own skin and deflect their negative vibes. Let them complain and be miserable to someone who has time to waste.

#3 Mindset is everything. Obsessing over the words or behavior of negative people is falling into their trap. Mentally take note that nothing they say or do is of importance to you, and you'll soon feel far less affected by their behavior.
