It’s difficult to watch anyone go through a hard time. While you might be physically unable to help someone you care about when they need assistance or guidance, you can always try helping them on an energetic level.
Sending positive energy to another person is simple and free; the only thing you really need is an open mind and a little time, as visualization is the key to directing energy.
How to Send Positive Energy to Someone?
Luckily, there’s more than just one way to send positive energy to another person who needs it. Check them out below!
1. Sending energy using crystals
One of the most popular methods of sending positive energy to someone else is through the use of healing crystals. This is known as distance healing.
To understand how this works, the first thing to know is what healing crystals actually are and why they’re so powerful. For millennia, crystals have been thought to store and release energy. They all have different specific properties and can be used to absorb negative energy, emit healing energy, cleanse a space, and much more. While most people use healing crystals for their own benefit, you can also use them to send positive energy to someone who needs it.
Steps to send energy using crystals:
You can do this by simply taking a crystal of your choice and set an intention for the crystal to send its positive energy to a particular person. Setting an intention is just a matter of quieting your mind and mentally stating your desire for the crystal. For example, you might say, “I intend for this crystal to send positive energy to [person’s name] and heal them by [specific action you’d like from the crystal].”
As I mentioned, different crystals have different properties so it’s a good idea to choose a crystal based on the specific type of positive energy you want to send. Use an amethyst, for example, if you want to help someone tune into their intuition. Or send love with rose quartz.
The great news about distance healing is that you can send positive energy to anyone, no matter where they are in the world! Because we are all energetically connected, physical distance really doesn’t matter.
Some points to bear in mind
Before you work with crystals, always be sure to cleanse them of negative energy, charge them, and program them with an intention. You can cleanse and charge a crystal by placing it in the sun or moonlight. Just be sure that your particular crystal isn’t prone to sun damage before you do this.
You can also burn incense and allow the smoke to carry away the negative energy that the crystal was storing. Then program your crystal by holding it during a meditation and mentally telling the crystal what you’d like it to do, for example, connecting to your higher self.
2. Sending energy using the Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction might sound like a bunch of new-age hocus pocus, but this Universal law has actually been around since the dawn of time. It’s the belief that everything in the Universe has a frequency (including us!), and we are able to attract specific experiences into our lives by vibrating at the same frequency as those experiences.
According to the Law of Attraction, our emotions impact whether we’re vibrating at a high or low frequency. Feeling negative emotions keeps our vibration low, while positive emotions keep our vibrations high. With high vibes, we attract positive experiences that match those vibrations, and the same is true for negative experiences. You can manifest the life you want by controlling your vibrations through thinking positive thoughts and feeling positive emotions.
So how can you use the Law of Attraction to help someone else? By sending out heart energy.
Steps to send energy using LOA:
While you can’t actually attract anything into anybody else’s life, you can send high vibrations, or positive energy, from your heart to theirs.
It’s super easy to send heart energy to someone who needs it. Start by feeling your heart in the center of your chest. Then imagine a stream of white or silver light traveling from your heart out of your body. As you imagine it, you might even feel warmth emanating from your heart.
Envision that stream of light traveling to the person or animal who needs your positive energy. That’s all you need to do to send good energy according to the principles of the Law of Attraction. It will then be their choice, even on a subconscious level, as to whether they accept the energy in or let it pass through them.
3. Sending energy using meditation
Meditation comes with a whole list of physical, mental, and spiritual benefits. Along with using meditation to boost your energy and de-stress, you can also use this age-old practice to send positive energy to someone else.
Steps to send energy through meditation:
It’s best to meditate in a place with no distractions where you know you won’t be disturbed. Begin by closing your eyes and breathing. With meditation, the idea is to quiet the mind, so try to focus on each breath you take and let all other thoughts pass you by.
If your mind jumps to other thoughts—and it probably will—try not to judge yourself. Just gently keep bringing your attention back to your breaths until your mind feels clear.
When you’re ready, focus on the energy inside of you. Visualize it filling up every inch of your body. Then see the person who will receive the energy in your mind’s eye. Keep trying to imagine them until you have a very clear picture of them, down to what their hair looks like and what clothes they’re wearing.
Visualize the energy inside you gathering into a white ball of light in your chest. Think about what you’d like this light to do for the person you’re sending energy to. It might be that you’re sending them healing energy to overcome a sickness. Or maybe you’re sending them love after they’re been through a tough breakup. Then you have to feel that energy yourself. Feel healing or feel love. You can use your memories of those emotions to help you if you’re struggling to summon the right feelings.
Bring together those good feelings and the white light, and then project the white light toward the other person in your mind. Envision them being surrounded by your positive white light and receiving it into their body.
4. Sending energy through angels
Angels appear in multiple religions and cultures. These beings of pure light or spirit have historically been portrayed in different ways, but most schools of thought agree that angels exist to guide us, guard us, and deliver us messages that we need to hear.
Along with your own guardian angels, there are also the high-ranking archangels. Although these figures feature heavily in the Abrahamic religions, they also appear in various forms in different religious traditions from around the world.
Steps to send energy through angels:
The angels can heal and help us when we ask, but it’s also possible to ask the angels for help on behalf of someone else. Just as you would ask angels for something for yourself, ask them to help another person: “Angels, please help [person’s name].”
You can also ask the angels to give you a sign that they have heard you. This can come in many forms, from seeing the word angel to finding a feather in an unexpected place to seeing an angel-shaped cloud.
Angels act in accordance with the divine order of life, so sometimes they may not be able to intervene, even though they’d like to. All you can do is ask and then release your worry. Trust that the angels can see the bigger picture and will always do what they can, when they can.
Even if the person you’re sending the positive energy to doesn’t believe, it’s still worth asking the angels for help. The angels don’t abandon people who don’t understand or believe in them. However, if positive energy is sent, it will ultimately be up to the person as to whether or not they receive that energy.
A note about Free Will
As you can see, there are multiple ways to send healing energy to someone. But no matter which method works for you, you still don’t have the power or the right to override someone else’s free will.
While healing crystals, the Law of Attraction, meditation, and angel healing all have the potential to make a difference, the other person still has to agree to receive that positive energy, even if it’s at a subconscious level.
This can be really tough to process, especially if you’re trying to help out someone you care about who seems like they really need it. Try to remember that you can always play your part by meditating or asking the angels, but you can’t hold it against yourself if they don’t want to absorb the light you send them. It could be that their higher self wants to learn a lesson without any help. Trust that if the energy you send is meant to be received, it will.
How to recharge yourself after sending energy?
It feels good to send positive energy out into the world. But you can also drain yourself in the process, so it’s helpful to know how to recharge again afterwards.
One of the best ways to do this is by taking a salt water bath. Epsom salts can neutralize toxic energies, which can help you to release negativity. At a physical level, a salt bath can also relieve sore muscles and leave you feeling energized.
Another great way to recharge your own energy is by getting in touch with nature. Try going for a walk, barefoot if possible, in a natural setting. Walking along the beach is a great option, as is walking in a park or by a river. Coming into physical contact with nature can help you to receive the earth’s energy. You might even like to spend some time lying in the grass or sand to re-energize.
Finally, you can also recharge yourself with another meditation. As always, begin with breathing and quiet the mind by focusing on your breaths, allowing your thoughts to come and go without judgment. When you meditate to recharge, set the intention in your mind to receive energy. Visualize an energy stream attached to your crown chakra on top of your head, slowly filling your body up with positive energy.
There’s no one right way of sending out positive energy that’s more powerful or more effective than the others. It all comes down to what resonates with you and what you feel the most comfortable with. You might even like to try them all out and see what works for you. Listen to your intuition!
Even though you can’t guarantee that someone else will want to receive the energy you send them, there’s always a chance they will. It might not seem like a lot, but using crystals, angels, meditation, or the Law of Attraction to send energy can make a huge difference to someone’s life.
