15 Ways to Combat ‘Energy Slime’

How to get un-stuck, once and for all.


If we’re feeling irritable, overwhelmed, drained, stuck, emotionally heavy, and just plain “blah” there’s a good chance we’ve been energy slimed. And the more run down we are the more susceptible we are to being slimed. BUT not to worry, there are some easy ways (that really work) to de-slime and restore our energy to normal levels.

15 WAYS TO DE-SLIME & COMBAT FUTURE SLIMINGS

These are in no particular order of potency. Mix and match. Try a few or try them all.

Way #1: Take a break from the news and even social media where the news and sometimes negativity hangs out.

Way #2: Clean up your physical space. A good dusting and clean up can do wonders to the energy that surrounds our physical space.

Way #3: Speaking of cleaning up our physical space, getting rid of anything that we no longer use, cleaning a closet, or drawers is a great way to shift the slimy energy.

Way #4: Do something fun everyday.

Way #5: Boundaries are great for de-sliming and protection from future sliming. Saying “no” (and remembering that it’s a complete sentence) helps to remove the slime.

Ways #6: Keep a lid on the comparisons. When we compare ourselves to others we ‘re inviting slime to make an appearance.

Way #7: Finish un-finished business, whether that’s resolving an issue with someone or completing a project.

Way #8: Work on letting go of any old anger and resentment. Talk it through with a trusted person. Write a letter that can be sent or shredded (depending on the severity of the letter). Side Note Reminder: Anger is fear turned outward and fear is forgetting everything’s all right.

Way #9: Have a Reiki treatment. Reiki is a great way to release any stuck energy and to de-slime.

Way #10: Avoid or limit time with toxic people.

Way #11: Speaking of toxic people, avoid negative conversations and gossip.

Way #12: Create some balance between “doing” and “being”, which means making sure to rest and relax in between or after “doing”.

Way #13: Replace forcing something to happen with curiosity. (i.e. “ I wonder what’s going to happen today?”) Being curious and open to what happens doesn’t just de-slime, but it leaves us open to additional opportunities that we may not have considered.

Way #14: Stay out of the past and engage with the present moment.

Way #15: Get to the source of any issue. Getting to the source helps to eradicate it for good, rather than band-aiding the symptoms. Having troubles getting to the source? Not a problem… coaches are awesome at helping get to the root of issues.

What do you do to de-slime? We’d love to hear your ways so feel free to share them in the comment section.

Here’s to saying “no” to energy slime. Until next time, I’m sending you much love and light…
