Do you know an energy vampire? Also referred to as a psychic vampire, they attach themselves to host and try to suck the person dry of their energies. When the host finally realizes what is going on, the energy vampire tends to either ignore them or let them go. Then the cycle simply continues as the energy vampire attaches to another person.
This is why you see vibrant, happy people attract others with self-serving objectives. Energy vampires have to turn to energetic people in order to get the energy they need to survive. Chances are that you have encountered your own energy vampire more than once, but aren’t sure how to deal with them. The next time you stumble across an energy vampire, use the following tips to maintain a healthy frequency and protect yourself from the energy vampire.
1. Retain your positive energy, while also trying to uplift the energy vampire’s energy.
There are many psychic vampires who unknowingly steal other people’s energy without malice. In many cases, they simply need some support and guidance.
According to Dr. Judith Orloff, a psychiatrist, Assistant Professor of Psychology at UCLA, and author of “Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself From Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life, “Some are overbearing and obnoxious; others are friendly and charming. For example, you’re at a party talking to a perfectly nice person, but suddenly you are nauseous or weak. Or how about the coworker who drones on about how she broke up with her boyfriend for the tenth time? Eventually, she feels better, but you’re spent. The bottom line is that on a subtle energy level these people suck you dry.”
To deal with these energy vampires, frequently referred to “poor me” types, you should offer a few positive words about her relationship or simply change the subject. They usually need assistance in getting back on a path that uplifts their own energy. Everyone needs help at one time or another, so don’t reflexively dismiss anyone who gives off negative vibes. They may need someone to talk to after a long day. You just have to continue to reach within yourself and access your positivity, while not allowing the person’s negative energy to affect you.
2. When in the presence of an energy vampire, say positive affirmations.
There are times when you enter a room full of people and instantly feel covered by overwhelming negativity. You may feel absolutely suffocated, so to keep yourself balanced, silently repeat some your favorite positive mantras or quotes. You can also imagine that you are protected by a bubble of positive energy to keep from being brought down by others.
3. Distance yourself.
If the self-pitying, manipulative behavior continues without any sign that they have plans on taking responsibility for their own energy, you may need to let them go, even if they are a family member of close friend. If someone refuses to take control of their own life and work on becoming more positive and independent, you will never have a healthy relationship with them. Don’t allow yourself to feel guilty. You can’t carry their burdens forever.
Cutting ties will force them to find the strength they need to uplift themselves and others. In the end, you will be doing them a favor.
4. Meditate daily, for at least 10 to 15 minutes.
One of the most effective ways to protect yourself from emotional manipulation is by looking deep within and channeling source energy into your mind and body. This will ensure you have a higher tolerance for dealing with the energies you encounter and won’t be deterred by devious energy vampires.
As you tap the universal consciousness grid and your own spiritual powers, you well begin to realize the behavior of other people won’t impact you as much.
5. Give them a huge smile.
This will benefit you because a smile carries a high vibration. When you share it with others, they also feel the effects of your positive energy. Ripples create waves that will keep positive energy flowing.
Of course, this doesn’t mean you should allow others to walk all over you and use up your energy stores. Simply give off good vibes that others can benefit from and use to enrich their own lives.
