What exactly is negative energy? Does it differ from a negative entity or spirit? What is a negative attachment? In this blog post, we demystify these terms and why you probably shouldn’t be afraid of them.
People throw the terms negative entity, negative spirit and negative attachment around all the time, particularly practitioners that can pick up on energy vibrations in their clients. My bug-bear comes from the fact that these terms are usually all used to describe only one thing: lower vibrational energy.
Hearing that you have a negative entity, spirit or attachment around you can be frightening and it can sometimes lead to unnecessary fear. Although negative entities, spirits and attachments exist they are extremely rare. I have only seen a negative entity and negative attachment twice in the whole time that I have been working as a psychic. When people are told that they have a negative entity or attachment on them it can cause distress and a cycle of wanting to get rid of them which becomes counter-productive.
If you think or have been told that you have a negative entity, spirit or attachment on you, around you or in your home then you need to read this as there are different forms of negativity which exist, but not all of them are as powerful, scary or as attached as you might think. So, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of what these terms mean…
Negative energy exists naturally in the world and is also known as lower vibrational energy. Without it, we wouldn’t have positive energy flowing opposite it. Negative energy isn’t an entity or being of any description; it is simply a manifestation of energy which comes from people, places, emotions, thoughts and feelings. All of us have created negative energy at some point in our life. We’ve also all managed to dispel, neutralise or eliminate this negative energy as well. Negative energy is nothing to be worried about as we come across it every day and in most instances are able to eliminate it so that it doesn’t affect us.
Negative entities are extremely rare. They are beings or energy sources which are usually very old, haven’t incarnated as a human for an extremely long time and who are effectively stuck in a cycle of negativity and lower vibrational energy. Because a negative entity’s energy field is so far removed from the physical plane, they find it hard to attach to people and places on earth. The only instance in which I have seen them attach to someone is when a person is in an extremely deep, addictive cycle of hard drug use (think of your real nasties like meth and heroin which are so chemically unstable that they destroy the body at a rapid rate). The effect that drugs have on the physical body also manifest in the auric field and spiritual plane bodies which gives a host body of the same energy frequency to the negative entity to attach to. The consequence is usually a draining effect on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the host person.
Unlike negative entities, negative spirits are the spirits of people who have passed away. Just as there will always be people who emit lower vibrational energy through their thoughts, actions and emotions there will always be people in spirit form who do the same. Negative spirits are usually restless, pissed-off and mischievous. Their aim is to cause a bit of a fright in the people that they are dealing with. Negative spirits can’t usually hurt us physically though. Negative spirits can be quite easy to dispel and shift on through smudging, affirmations or general energy cleansing of a space. Negative spirits don’t usually attach to people but tend to attach to a home or other place.
Negative attachments aren’t a being as such, it is simply the concept of attached energy. Negative entities and negative spirits can attach in certain circumstances but the most common negative attachment is simply energy which we have allowed to linger. For example, you could say that the feeling of anxiety is an attachment if it has been present for a long time. These are simply the result of your mental state though and not the result of a being attaching to you. Negative attachments can be dealt with and dealing with them depends on the form in which it takes whether it be a negative entity attachment, a negative spirit attached to a place or negative energy which you can’t or haven’t tried to shift.
I hope that makes more sense and takes the fear out of these terms!
