_ Are you been drained by an Energy Vampire
Are there certain people you find are draining. After you leave their presence you are so exhausted and tired that you could fall into a puddle and sleep for days. Or you feel sad and depressed for no reason after spending time with them. These people maybe energy vampires, they thrive on other people’s energy and take it for themselves. In many cases the energy vampire is not even aware of the fact that he is draining your energy. They leave the encounter happy and fully energized while you are left in a state of exhaustion. This is because they consume your positive energy and leave only your negative energy behind.
How to identify and energy vampire?
· Intruding on your life, ignoring boundaries and privacy (energy vampires don't think of you they will call you in the middle of the night to tell you their problems or in the early hours of the morning, they often will not even ask you how you are, they will tell you all about their lives and then hang up when they have consumed your positive energy). I like to call these people “I specialists” take note every other word will include I or me.
· Making big deals out of nothing. Energy vampires are often called "drama queens" because they can turn a broken nail into a Shakespearean tragedy. Everything is a drama from a bump on the toe to break up. The event will be plumbed to its greatest depths, in order to draw your sympathy and compassion.
· Complaining constantly about their partners, jobs, children, bad luck, and illnesses. It does not matter what it is they will find some subject to moan and grip about.
· Love to vent and use you as a sounding board for their anger.
· Criticizing your hair, appearance, job, children, partner, friends, and pets (energy vampires aren't positive, they will always bring negativity into your life).
· Not taking "no" for an answer. Energy vampires don't consider your needs.
· Being unrelentingly negative. Their negative energy is relentless, and energy vampires drain your positive energy by encouraging you to be negative, too.
· Blaming everyone else for their problems (energy vampires don't take responsibility they do not accept that in many case they are to blame for the circumstance they find themselves in).
· If you are psychic you will notice that these people have a very odd smell to them, I can not really describe it but their scent is disturbing and other worldly and instantly repels you. It is almost sickly sweet, when you walk in crowded areas you will wonder past people that have this strange aroma and know that they should be avoided.
Energy Vampires Need Your Positive Energy
Energy vampires come in all shapes and sizes: loud and aggressive, soft-spoken and shy, charming and seductive, pushy and overbearing. Energy vampires have energy leaks that they need to fill. It's up to you to stop energy vampires from draining your positive energy! Often energy vampires don't even realize they're draining your positive energy. Energy vampires have often suffered some sort of crisis, whether in childhood or adulthood, and they're compensating to get rid of their negative energy. Energy vampires may not be deliberately, maliciously stealing your positive energy – but they're definitely not contributing to a fantastic relationship.
How is it possible for Energy Vampires to steal your energy?
They do it through energy cords; every one of us has energy cords that connect us to our loved ones. Anyone you have a connection with will share a cord with you. When the connection is healthy neither person is affected by the cords. But with energy vampires they subconsciously shoot out energy cords that will connect with you and tap into your energy. When in the company of a vampire take note of any odd physical feelings, for instance it feels as if you have been stung by a bee or pricked with a pin but there is no evidence of this. Following this you start to feel tired and listless.
Ways to Protect Yourself From Energy Vampires
Limit the amount of time you spend with energy vampires. The less time you're together, the less positive energy you'll lose.
1. Learn effective ways to end conversations with energy vampires (eg, I only have ten minutes to talk. Set you boundaries with them and don’t back down, if you say you only have ten minutes, Time the conversation and get out of it as soon as their ten minutes are up. Value your time and yourself, when you do you will realize how poisonous their company is to your well being and state of mind)
2. Stay calm and detached from energy vampires. Don't let their negative energy consume you, don’t get caught up in the drama.
3. Honest about your needs, remember that your needs are the most important and should be met before meeting others needs. (eg, "I need this time to work/read/relax/exercise.")
4. Refrain from attempting to rescue them or fix an energy vampire's problems. They don’t want you to fix their problems they want to talk about them so that they can take your energy.
5. Practice walking away from energy vampires.; the more you do it, the easier it gets.
6. Limit eye contact with energy vampires.
7. Avoid being in close spaces with energy vampires (elevators, cars, etc). Negative energy is catching. Try to only meet with them in open spaces, or place that have fresh air.
8. Define and guard your personal space from energy vampires.
9. Tell energy vampires you feel uncomfortable discussing particular people or circumstances.
10. Stand up for yourself and your boundaries! Your time, positive energy, and resources are precious and should be closely guarded from energy vampires
11. Most importantly DOUBLE BUBBLE, imagine that your Higher Power ie. God or Jesus is sending you a beautiful light from heaven that wraps around your body and forms an impregnable bubble of light which protects you and prevents your energy from been stole. The bubble will move with you and bounce off objects but will not allow negative influence to attack you. You will notice how much better you feel when you are around these people.
12. An Aura clearing can help to remove any attachments an energy vampire has to you, in extreme cases the vampire can tap into your energy when even when they are not in your company. You will find yourself out of the blue tired and depressed or sad for no reason. Some people even experience the emotions and thoughts of an energy vampire then they are feeding off you. The cords are cut and sealed so that the vampire no longer has access to your energy. For more information on aura clearing.
