Sex is a wonderful part of the human experience. Most adults are aware of the potential physical and emotional pitfalls of sex, but few know it’s possible to pick up toxic energy from sex.

Although it's near impossible to measure with conventional science, those sensitive to other people's energy know that sex is an energy exchange, and it’s easy to absorb good or negative energy from your partner.

You might notice how another person's energy can influence yours, if you pay attention.

Have you ever felt energetically drained or depressed after sex, possibly for days afterwards, for no good reason?

Feeling worse after sex, especially if you have difficulty shaking the feeling, can be an indication of picking up negative entities, dark energy, or lost souls. A sudden desire to drink, smoke, do drugs, especially if you’ve never had the urge before or haven’t in years, is also a sign.

“The openness and surrender during sexual intercourse can allow the exchange of attached entities between two people. The thoughts, desires and behaviors of an attached entity are experienced as the person’s own thoughts, desires and behaviors. The thoughts, feelings, habits and desires do not seem foreign if they have been present for a long time, even from childhood. This is a major factor in the widespread denial of the concept and lack of acceptance of the phenomena of discarnate interference and spirit attachment, obsession or possession.”
– Dr. William Baldwin, Spirit Releasement Therapy

The more empathic or spiritually sensitive you are, the more at risk you are for picking up negative energy, especially during sex. Excessive guilt and fear about sex can also open someone up to it, as can alcohol and drugs, strong negative emotions, trauma, and surgery.

The risk of picking up negative energy from sex is a bigger problem than most people realize. Based on our empirical research we estimate at least 80% of the population has lost souls or negative energy attached to their energy field. Some people have been carrying it around for so long it seems normal and part of them.

How To Avoid It

We don’t believe sex between consenting adults is wrong, so we’re not going to tell you to be celibate.

Thankfully, you can minimize your risk with the tips below. This list is more for singles, but some of the tips apply to couples too.

1) Don’t have sex when you feel emotionally, mentally, or physically weak.

2) Even if he or she is drop dead gorgeous, completely your type, and you can’t believe your luck, be extra cautious if you have even a hint of an unfavorable feeling about the person.

3) If something is telling you not to have sex, don’t do it. Trust your intuition. Even if you’re not particularly empathic, you can probably sense when it’s not in your best interest to have sex, or if someone isn’t good for you.

4) Don’t hook up when drunk or high. Even one drink can make you vulnerable to all the energy and entities that are with that attractive stranger. Being excessively wasted can open you up to all kinds of spiritual garbage, even if you don’t have sex.

5) Be extra cautious of sex with people who drink or drug often as they are very likely to have lots of lost souls and possibly dark energy in their energy field.

6) Don’t sleep with people who are excessively negative. Bad people carry around a lot of bad energy, and good people can be the target of bad energy.

How To Clear It

Whether or not you follow the tips above, and even if you are celibate, it’s still easy to occasionally pick up troublesome energy. The first four clearing and protection techniques work best when used daily.

1) Imagine yourself being cleared and healed by bright sunshine. Doing this in direct sunlight is even better.

2) Ask for protection and help from God or whomever you pray to, and Archangel Michael, in removing heavy energy.

3) Meditate so you are more in tune with yourself, others, and the reality of situations.

4) Use the free Spiritual Detox™ Script.

5) Smudge, or burn sage.

6) Some stubborn negative entities can be difficult to remove for novices. In these cases, seek the help of a priest who performs exorcisms, or a spiritual releasement or spiritual clearing expert.
