What to Do With Negative Energy

By Steve Wickham

Riding a bicycle to work on humid summer days makes for debilitating work, especially with hills or headwinds to deal with. Reaching the destination can be as much about energy conservation and focus as anything.

Energy drains - or worse, negative energy - can affect us in the same ways, only mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Maybe we can liken this to days of spiritual humidity, where the ether is thick with complexity we can't rationalise. We feel it but we cannot see it.

It's also occurring outside of ourselves, in the realm of relationships too. Some people seem quite content to propagate their unproductive energies via control, ascendency and warmongering.

We can see the advent of negative power as something that subsists in, or is contingent on, the relational sphere - whether with ourselves or others.

We all have not-so-good days; times when for want of rhyme or reason our energy has flown out the window.

But sometimes negative energy can come from a prevailing nuance in our self-talk. What have we been pondering and what has our mind and heart been saying about it?.

This can often be a clue. If the self-talk isn't productive and it doesn't abide to truth, we should actively resist it, calling lies, suspicion and innuendo what they are. We are readily fooled at the level of the mind. It's important to allow God to speak truth into our thinking.

Some people maybe totally oblivious to the fact we feel their negative energy, and whilst some are negative for a time, or over an issue, others seem permanently negative. There are at least two positive and countering standpoints.

We can accept the negative energy as an aberration, in the case of someone's mood, or in the case of a negative person, we can respectfully challenge - at truth - the negativity. Truth is always sound basis for challenge, so long as we can remain objective.

Both of these positions ensure that the negative energy is not affecting us. The former is about ignoring or absorbing it, without thought over it, unless to appropriately empathise. The latter is gently bringing the person to account, accepting that some people will refuse. They're beyond help, so we limit our involvement with them; we're free to do this as much as our worlds allow. That's a sufficient freedom.
