Halloween delights us as we poke fun at what might normally frighten us. The vampire is a mesmerizing archetype, who feeds off the blood of living humans and shuns death. But we don’t have to be celebrating Halloween to be exposed to vampires. Energy vampires are humans who feed off the energy of others. They are toxic to our energetic health.
How to Protect from Energy Vampires
Here are 3 Signs to identify energy vampires:
- You often feel yucky in your friend’s presence. You felt fine before making contact, but after you encounter your friend, you feel exhausted and drained. Feeding off your energy can happen in person or on the phone.
- Someone asks you for something, and despite your original intention, you cave in and feel used.
- Your friend typically dumps on you about all her problems. It is not a reciprocal relationship. But your friend feels better afterwards.
If you feel violated after being in contact with this person, you have been exposed to an energy vampire. They don’t give; they take.
Fortunately, you can protect yourself from energy vampires.
- Imagine a bubble of white light over your entire body. Hold the intention that any lower vibrational energy will lose some of its darkness when entering the presence of your light.
- Take the palm of your hand facing your navel. Do an imaginary zip up from your navel to your chin. Imagine that you are zipping up your energy, as a shield from other energies. If you are unprotected from someone’s toxic energy, and you do not want to appear rude, you can zip up in your mind’s eye. It has the same effect.
- Daily, or whenever you are exposed to frenetic energy, ask a friend to do a spinal flush: face the recipient’s back, take 3 fingers, and quickly flush the spine from the nape of the neck to the lower back. Repeat 3, 6, or 9 times, or however many times feels good. Usually 6 will suffice. Feel your energy vibrate as you release the negative energy.
We are energetic beings, and we are exposed to multiple energies throughout the day. As an empath, I am particularly sensitive to energy. If you suffer from anxiety, you could also be feeling other people’ energy. What has been your experience with energy vampires? What other ways do you protect yourself?
