Hello, my name is Luna and I need some help. Here lately I have been not feeling like myself. Everyone around me has been dealing with allot of things lately and there is a bit of negativity in the air. I cleanse and get rid of the negativity but I comes back and sticks on me like i'm glue or something. Its really annoying and causing some troubles for me. I try to get rid of it but it keeps coming back. I realized that I tend to pick up energy around me for some odd reason. I really don't know what to do now. I can't cast spells with all the negativity on and around me. I can't meditate or astral project because I'll pick more up. I try to will it away but it keeps coming back no matter what I do... Please, any suggestions on what should I do? thank you so much!

Sometimes I find that when negativity sticks around like that, there is a lesson to be learned and a root cause you're overlooking. Depending on your situation, it could be vaious different things. Are others negative around you? Why? Do you know a solution for it that can attack the root cause? You don't have to give me these answers, but they are good for figuring out on your own. Magick is really only an aid and, depending on personal views, a lifestyle. You still have your physical, day to day life to attend to and work with and I'm not trying to look down on you when I say that. A lot of people can forget that sometimes, Magick just isn't going to cut it.
My best friend is going through allot right now, her parents are divorcing and they don't have much money. Her dad Is a HUGE jerk and scares me a bit. My mother is in a bad mood allot more often and there's just so much more things. I want to support everyone, but everyone is almost always in a horrible mood all the flipping time. Allot of stuff...
Ok so im prety shour you are an empath, a lot of empaths have trouble with that, and I sometimes get that to, the one thing I lurned is to just put a mental block on negative emotions (but once you lurned to do a mental block dont go crazy I used to have one on both pain and the cold, I got a cold in a week and kept finding browses and a burn mark on one occasion so yeah not as good a idea as it might seem to do eighter of those)

You can't just cleanse some negativity away and have all negativity stay away for good. After you remove the negative energy you then need to place protection magic around you and your living spaces to ward off additional negativity. Cleansing is also needed more frequently when negative situations and people surround us. Sometimes multiple cleansings must be done to get rid of the underlining negative energy as well. Keep cleansing the negative energy and placing different protections around you. These protection working should link together creating a web of protection which will help to keep the negative influences from affecting your life. I would start with building up a personal shield. You work on this type of casting daily as part of your meditation practices.
Cleansing is a good idea but cleansing alone won't keep it away, you need to cast a protection spell. Next time you cleanse wear a protection amulet afterwards.
Shielding can also help you, doing this daily will cut down on the negativity sticking to you. I've also been told by some friends when you feel something negative coming your way visualize a mirror reflecting it away from you and it sends it away instantly [depending on your visualization] I've never done this myself but its an idea. Speaking of mirrors, they're used to deflect energy, so if you could wear something with mirrors or reflective surfaces [like a scarf or dress] you could send some energy away.
I would recomend yousing white sage to smudge the area first that combine salt and water and sprinkle that around that area
And then place a white candle in the center of the area and let it burn out P.S
When doing this open all doors and windows when avalible
