Some people bring joy, love, and excitement into your life. Their presence alone makes you feel good, and happy to be around. Then, there are others who, after being with them, make you feel stressed out, and leave you with a sense of guilt. They can suck the life out of you. Their problems are always more important than yours. They are dramatic, and they love to complain. These kinds of people are Energy Vampires. Energy or Psychic Vampires are negative people who are spiritually or emotionally weak people who drain and feed off of the energy, the life force energy, from others. The people who are being drained are left exhausted, unable to focus or concentrate, and can become down, and depressed.
Energy Vampires come in all different forms; the co-worker who never stops talking, the blamer who can’t see their own issues and drives in guilt, the drama queen who has to have center stage and be the center of attention, the negative friend who dwells on the past, the selfish siblings who thinks the world revolves around them. As an energy vampire can drain you of your energy, the good news is that you have a choice to be around them, or not. You can walk away!
In certain situations, when you don’t have a choice of being around an energy vampire, you can protect yourself. You have to start off by recognizing the signs of when that particular situation is occurring. You have to start paying attention to how you feel when you are around them. Do you notice any difference in the way you feel? Do you feel tired, or a tense feeling in your body? Do you get a headache while talking to them, or just after you talked to them? If you do, either eliminate your interactions with this person, or put a limit on the amount of time you spend with that person.
You need to remain calm, and breathe, and bring yourself back to your center, your God-Energy. You don’t have any control over anyone else’s actions, but you do have control over yours. It’s your actions that matter, and one that will invite more negativity in, or you cannot focus on the negativity of the situation, but on the positive energy of God within. People are our mirrors. We attract what we are. If you find out why that particular person is so draining to you, and realize how it is making you feel, you will see what still needs healing within yourself. Once you heal those particular issues within, you will probably find that the energy vampires do not affect you, and you will probably also find that they move on to other people who match the negativity they feel inside. An energy vampire does need help with their own issues. If you can stay detached emotionally from them, but help them, you will find that you are not only helping them, but you are also helping yourself. Some energy vampires, not matter what you say and do, cannot be helped. And, therefore, you need to make a decision to keep yourself positive and stay away from their negative energy.
With much love and many blessings,
