How to protect yourself from negative energy


Horrible, unspeakable stories dominate the news; people are all walking around defeated and struggling; our efforts are met with disappointment; loss is everywhere; and negative voices continue to infiltrate our minds.

We are engulfed with negativity day in and day out.

Yeah, yeah, we know that there is positive stuff, too, and so much to be grateful for.

You do see that, I know you do. But still. The negativity can really be depleting, eh?

Protect yourself from negative energy

Are you sensitive?

We sensitive folk feel things deeply. Especially the energy of other people around us. When it’s good, that’s great no problem!

But when it is confused, disjointed, cruel, or anything dark, heavy or negative in any way, this has the potential to tip us in a direction we don’t want to go. We have the weight of the world on our shoulders.

calm from anxiety

We cope and manage–sometimes trying to avoid negativity to relieve ourselves. But basically we feel exhausted often and, frankly, we are not totally happy with this arrangement.

I’m done being limited in how I am in the world! I don’t want to avoid negativity. I want to help heal it.

Being sensitive is both a blessing and a curse. Take the blessing and let go of the curse.

I LOVE being sensitive, and know what a gift it can be. I’m troubled that this beautiful skill has such a negative connotation now-a-days. I wouldn’t give up my sensitivity for all the tea in China.

So let’s talk. I know you want to know what you can do to make yourself enjoy the wonder of being sensitive without all the fuss and heaviness or anxiety the negative energy can bring.

I can help you.

In this video are two ways to protect yourself from negative energy. They are easy and you can try them right now.

A very timely and wise post and video, Jodi! There is so much sadness in the world, and I tend to take it on, feel it deeply. And I also tend to be apologetic for being so sensitive. Thanks for validating that trait and for teaching us ways to use our sensitivity for good while protecting ourselves from the weight of negativity.

I am sure it was a really hard week for you! I’ve been thinking of you a lot. I hope you try these things and it helps you bounce back when big things happen!

Hi Jodi,

Loved your video sharing the two ways we can protect ourselves from negative energy, which is always around us. I think it makes sense to have the little strength within us to keep the negativity at bay and take in the positive, so that it makes a difference. Self- talk and positive affirmations always help 🙂

Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

Jodi Aman

I do do a lot of self-talk and positive affirmations, too! Helps so much!

Hi Jodi,

Negative energy is more powerful, that is why it affects us immediately, especially the sensitive people. We all know how negative thoughts get a vice like grip on us till we shake them off consciously. We need to be in the company of positive minded people and say positive words to ourselves…develop a positive bent of mind.
Thanks for highlighting what eats at our minds so often.

Thanks, Balroop, I hear day in and day out what easts our mind, so I it’s easy to find topics that help people!


I love the igloo idea! Very clever Jodi It’s always hard to try and not feel or connect with negative energy from others, especially if it is coming from someone you care about. But it’s always great to find ways to still maintain your positive flow 🙂

the idea of an igloo. I’m visualizing myself in one now eating chocolate & drinking wine!
Jodi, I have a request.
Can your readers ask you questions?
….Then you answer them from your sofa while you drink tea?

You sound lovely, good to people and down-to- earth-nice. Found you by chance, have taken a look. Thanks for your insight and caring!

That is so true that telling yourself something ends up being a circular way of living. When you think you are sensitive to other’s pain you will then see ways of which you fit that and it will become engrained in you. Starting to reframe things one small step after another is always important. Thanks for this Jodi! Igloo!

Jodi Aman

Hope you enjoy making an igloo for yourself, Sebastian!

Laura Zera

Mmmm-hmmm, that’s an interesting point you made, that to believe yourself to be susceptible then makes you more susceptible. I hadn’t thought about it that way. Also, I don’t know how you do it, but your posts are always so timely to what I’m working on! I am reading Elaine Aron’s “The Highly Sensitive Person” right now, just started it yesterday, but before I watched your video. Thanks, Jodi!

Oh I had a client read that. She loved it.

I just think we create what we think. When my mind says that I am tired, I get more tired. Ya know?


I love the suggestion, Jodi, but is there anything warmer than an igloo? Here in San Diego, it would melt in no time, leaving me exposed to the elements. 😉 Still I love the idea of a buffer between me and all the negativity on the news right now. It’s too much!

I myself, have struggled with dealing with negative people and negative thoughts around me. It has always been very difficult to control. Before I knew it, I was overwhelmed with negative thoughts myself.

Jodi Aman

I hope this video helps you not get dragged down anymore!


I also love being sensitive. It makes me feel closer to people. It helps me understand others better. When I understand others, I also understand myself, my reactions. It is true that it can be draining, but only with selfish people. People who are not selfish and self centered never make me tired however negative they might be. In fact, maybe I misunderstood ‘negative” here. A person suffering is not negative. For me a negative person is someone who tries and take any “blessing” or anything beautiful as something bad.

Hi Jodi, this is such a great topic. I’ve often been told I’m “too sensitive” as if there is such a thing. It only made me doubt my gifts of empathy. I’ve learned to accept & cherish this part of me. As always, I love your video!

I believe being sensitive is more of a curse than blessing! 🙂

Negative energy or feelings are one the worst things we can experience as a human being. if you can master this, then you’ll be able to handle your negative feelings a lot better in the long run. It would be nice if we could stay detached to our emotions and not let them affect us and our thinking, but emotions are part of the body; they here to stay as long as we live.
