For some, they’d cling onto stuff from previous lovers because of its sentimental values. Psychologist, Serena In from The Mind says, “Does it spark joy? If it’s part of the healing process, that’s totally fine. But it might add up as emotional and psychological baggage.”

Here are five ways you can clear out the energetic traces of your ex from your life. It’s hard but you can do it!

1. Replace the old photos with new ones

You can throw the frames or you can replace them with new memories. Hang pictures of what you really want out of life and photos of your loved ones – like that crazy girls-only trip to Thailand!

2. Clear the window space

According to feng shui, it’s believed that windows represent the way we see our world. A messy, dusty window creates the same kind of attitude and direction towards our life. Clear off that negative energy by decluttering. You need all the help you can get to clear off the bad vibes after the horrible breakup.

3. Sage your home – especially your bedroom (ugh, can we sage the bed too?)

Sage is often seen in horror movies. There are bad spirits and some woman who sees the dead burns sage to clean the house. Now the theory behind this is that the smoke attaches itself to negative energy. When it clears. it takes the negative energy along.

Again, it’s all about clearing up negative energy left by that douche. Before you begin, set your intention – What do you want? Why? Then smoke your place up with sage!

4. Get rid of your ex mementos

Clothes, memorabilia, basically anything that reminds you of him. While you’re at that, clear out the storage boxes, dust the floor and mop your space clean. After the horrendous breakup, you’ll need a clean slate to start all over again!

5. Decorate your place with greens

Yes, plants fulfill the need to care for someone or something. Spend some TLC on the greens and flowers in your house. Besides that, it also cleans the air in your home. Which is exactly what you need – a breath of fresh air.
