How do I protect myself from an energy vampire?
There are many effective methods for dealing with energy vampires. Before we move on and discuss those methods, let’s start by you taking a piece of paper and answer the following questions:
Step 1: Identify time, situations, and places (where and when) your energy is being sucked
Step 2: Make a list of all the people that suck your energy out of you
Step 3: Make a note of all the thoughts that you have all day long that suck your energy
My favourite method is to avoid them completely, which includes cutting off all means of communication. Life would be easy if that was the case, unfortunately, this is not always possible. These energy vampires might be a partner, ex-partner, flatmate, a close friend, co-worker or close family member, a situation which you have been invited to be in, your own self-destructive thought patterns, etc, in which case you might find yourself always surrounded by them with no means of escape. If this is the case, there are some other methods you can employ to protect yourself.
Some people, by their very presence, seem to drain the energy of those unprotected people around them. They will often associate with a victim who exhibits the classic signs of this drain.
General debility, lack of motivation and energy, an emaciated physique, a pallid complexion, and an overall sense of weakness are typically noted. These victims also tended to be highly suggestible people. The dominant partner (energy vampire) always resists a successful treatment, or protection, applied to their victim.
Most of these energy vampires are well-meaning, normal people. They are an unhappy lot, and do their damage by a telepathic draining of their victim’s energy resources. Mere separation of two people results in immediate positive changes in the victim.
In my Belgravia and Pimlico office, international clients, the various workshops i organise as well as through the 360 degree change programme, I train and help all such victims in the art of spiritual protection techniques to eliminate any recurrences of this syndrome.
I prefer to use the term “psychic parasitism” for cases where this energy drain is involuntary and subconscious. If this effect is the result of a premeditated psychic attack, I refer to the perpetrator as an energy vampire.
You will observe this process at work in any public gathering, the more people present, the easier it will be to observe. This could be a family gathering, a lecture, or an encounter at your local movie theatre. When I conduct seminars and workshops, it is more than obvious. I discuss this concept and immediately see certain heads bobbing up and down. Even more interesting is the response of their partner. These individuals give more me some of the nastiest looks I have ever seen. Fear not, I am fully protected and am not susceptible to their parasitism/vampirism.
Psychic Defence Strategies against Energy Vampires
The psychological dynamics represented by people who inadvertently portray a psychic attacker (energy vampire) fall into five major categories. This personality type is an accumulation of that individual’s experiences in their current life, as well as in prior lifetimes.
Fear-associated with the root chakra energy is the common denominator in these individuals, and you too can learn to protect yourself from their negative influences.
The five personality types are called ethereal, insecure, paranoid, passive-aggressive, and robotic. For each type I will show you techniques to adopt so that you can be free of such energy vampires.
The Paranoid Type
Betrayal is the main issue with a paranoid type. Their karmic theme in past lives has possibly been that of warrior-like behaviour, self-sacrifice, and victory in their battles. As a result of their experiences, they learned that there were enemies in the world who betrayed and possibly killed them in several incarnations.
Paranoid types are soldiers still trying to win a war that no longer exists against an enemy that has long since perished. They do not trust anyone. Everyone is their enemy and life is their battleground. Fear is everywhere and an ingrained part of their personality makeup.
Their energy fields tend to be more highly charged on the upper half of their body. They are especially fearful and distrustful of members of the opposite sex. Aggression is the most common response to the world from a paranoid type. This aggression takes the form of physical behaviour and energy projections to anyone in their path.
Paranoid types constantly pick fights. They are seductive, but are incapable of long-term relationships. This person expects all others to betray them, and will assist in setting up others for this betrayal. A paranoid may initiate a betrayal as a pre-emptory strike.
To lose for a paranoid is to admit that they are bad. This is intolerable, so these people must win at any cost. They are hard workers, obsessive-compulsive, and are usually quite healthy physically. There is never enough time for them to accomplish their various goals.
Paranoid types insist you agree with their often-distorted view of the world. In reality, they want you to argue with them. This way they can win the argument and prove to themselves that they are good and you are bad.
Never argue with this person. Lower and soften your voice when you speak to them, and change the topic to something pleasant. If you are able to disconnect all together from such individuals do so, if not refrain from making eye contact with them.
Other effective technique is to imagine yourself being a white light energy ball, radiate the space with white light and send white light to this person. Create a vortex of energy in form of a violet tornado and clean the space around you.
If you are your own energy vampire with the above symptoms, on daily basis incorporate root chakra meditation, root chakra affirmations to help you in building trust in yourself. When there is a trust, there is no room for fear.
The Ethereal Type
Existential terror is the predominant issue of an ethereal type. Most often these troubled souls have been tortured to death in previous lives for their metaphysical beliefs or practices. Their only escape was to leave the body, so out-of-body experiences are the norm with them today.
These individuals do not want much contact with others. They were afraid to incarnate in their present body, and show this fear by being unwilling to commit their consciousness completely into their physical body.
Leaving their physical body often throughout the day is the most common method that ethereal types use to deal with problems. They have weak boundaries and spend as much time as possible on the spiritual realms. Since all time is simultaneous on other planes, these people find it difficult to relate to linear time.
The result of these inclinations is both withdrawal and aggression. They become aggressive and angry when forced to function on the earth plane. Their psychic attack on you is rarely premeditated, but nonetheless you must protect yourself from these individuals.
The Insecure Type
The main issue with insecure types is nurturance. These souls have been through many incarnations during which there simply was not enough food or love to go around. They usually were abandoned at some time in their present life, and fear it will happen again.
The insecure type feels that everyone around them is draining their energy; their response is to suck the energy from others to compensate. They may engage you in long, boring conversations and speak very softly. Their voice is so soft and low that you have to strain to hear them. These are compulsive people who are classically overweight and susceptible to addictions of all kinds.
These souls continually create life experience proving that they are not worthy of attention, and their energy needs and nurturing requirements will never be satisfied. To solve this deficiency, they must persist in draining the energy from others, creating a vicious cycle.
An insecure type always comes across as helpless. They insist you do things for them, and expect you to take care of their every need. Give-and-take circumstances are unknown to them. All they can do is take.
Never stand directly in front of this person. Do not make eye contact with him or her, if possible. Encourage them with words, but do not offer to do things for them. Remember these individuals live in constant fear of rejection and abandonment. Do not let your pity for them be a basis for you being their next victim.
The Passive-Aggressive Type
Invasion and being controlled is the chief concern of the passive-aggressive type. During several past incarnations, they experienced being controlled and trapped in situations, and prevented from being able to express themselves in ways they wanted to. They may have been slaves, prisoners, or been victimized by religion or governments.
These souls absolutely desire freedom, but their fear prevents them from claiming it. They are angry and resentful for not feeling free, and lack a solution to this problem. Their response to the world is withdrawal, but with a subconscious wish to obtain permission from other people to come back into the world.
Passive-aggressive types lack autonomy. They constantly strive to involve other people in their lives. This individual makes demands and resists input at the same time. They live in the now, and never plan or think about the future. Self-expression is unknown to them. It is common to observe others interfering with their development, completing their sentences, and taking them for granted.
This type of individual creates an internal world of unclear, undifferentiated fantasies and ideas, with fear at the core of this world. They imprison themselves and project loneliness, desperation, and resentment toward everyone they contact. It is impossible for them to express anger.
Whey you engage this type in a conversation, they will request your advice. Unfortunately, all of your suggestions are wrong and you are of no help to them. These people ask but reject whatever is offered to them. Their classic response to your advice is, “yes, but..”
The Robot Type
The main issue of robotic types is authenticity. They are denying their true self. During previous lifetimes, they had to keep up the appearance of being perfect in order to survive. They were most likely in charge of running things, as they probably are now.
Their outer world is perfect, the inner world is denied, and there is no core essence. They constantly fear that something is missing and life is progressing without them.
To deal with this reality, robot types try to become even more perfect. They have high-paying jobs, a good reputation, a perfect spouse and family, and look in perfect health.
The more inauthentic they act, the more meaningless the world appears. Others envy their lifestyle. People come to them with their problems. The robot types never attain satisfaction from life, and come across as a blank. They function as if on automatic pilot and are often removed from your conversation.
Robot types never complain about the world. They are perfect and everything is beautiful. Appropriateness and being “politically correct” are more important that being real.
These five types of psychic parasites need to be recognized and treated accordingly, or a psychic attack upon you is inevitable.
“I suck your positive energy!”
One of my favourite protective measures is learning effective ways to end conversations with these vampires. This might be as simple as telling your vampire that you don’t have any time to talk. You can fabricate situations that call for your “immediate attention” even if they don’t exist.
Taking the initiative by appearing to be extremely busy can shed off these vampires, they will go look to leech energy off of weaker souls. You never have to be in a position you don’t want to be in. You don’t have to stay and chat with them about their problems and dead end solutions. You always have the power to walk away, unless they have dug their teeth into your neck. Don’t let it get that far, have the courage to leave.
Staying and talking to these vampires will ultimately leave you feeling drained, tired, and lethargic. No matter what you say, they always seem to find a way to counter with a negative opinion. They focus on negativity, while ignoring any positive advice. When they face a problem, they soak themselves in the issue rather than deal with it constructively. They adopt a self-victimizing mind-set, complaining about whatever happens.
Energy vampires are fixated on doom and gloom, everything is black and there is no white. If you have the courage, have been asked for your help, you can shed light on their current situation and point them towards this article so that they can read, reflect and seek help.
