Are There Vampires Lurking Around You?
Could Your Friends Or Neighbors Be One Of These Parasitic Creatures?
We have all been brought up with the notion of vampires. We can easily imagine Count Dracula, in his long black cape, suckling the neck of a hapless victim. Stories of vampires fill the silver screen, Dracula, Son of Dracula, Blacula, Nosferatu, Twilight, Interview With A Vampire and Blade are only a few of the many movies that are based upon Bram Stoker’s classic portrayal Dracula. Stoker’s bloodsucking, shape-shifting, immortal villain Count Dracula is inspired by the life of Vlad the Impaler, the Transylvanian born 15th-century prince of Wallachia.
These creatures of the night, in order to sustain their life and vitality, are purported to feast on human blood. Vampires, as seen in the moves, may only be a fictitious character. There are however, real life living breathing individuals who are described as vampires. You may have already encountered one. These leechlike creatures are energy vampires.
What Is An Energy Vampire
Energy vampires intentionally, or more often unintentionally, feed off the life force energy of unsuspecting individuals instead of consuming their blood. They create a parasitic relationship between themselves and others. As living beings, we are each filled with universal life force energy. It is known as chi, prana and orgone to name a few of the words that describe this invisible force. Universal life force energy animates and sustains us.
We are able to create and maintain this unseen aspect of ourselves when we are healthy. Some energy vampires are unable to sustain their chi at healthy levels. Their ability to produce this vitalizing energy is depressed or not functioning correctly. They look towards other to support their depleted energy resources thus boosting their own. This may have occurred because they were violated or traumatized making it difficult for them to connect with this part of their being. They may discover at an early age how to siphon their shortage of energy off others. Energy vampires can also learn these negative traits if they grow up in an environment where their parents steal energy from them or others. These same children may also learn to become a good host. They are taught growing up how to remain quiet and passive during an energy feeding.
Some People Choose To Be An Energy Vampire
There are even individuals who consciously decide to become an energy vampire. Sites can be found on the internet that provide instructions on how to tap into the energy of others. An example of this is the website “The Darkness Of The Light” (http://leasre.tripod.com/psychic.html) which offers information and tips on how to become a successful “psychic vampire”. It states:
It is recommended that the beginner, especially those without a proper teacher, feed from people who seem invigorated or, shall we say “hyper”. This is the easiest victim for they seem to radiate energy, open season for the hungry vampire. After more practice, one can feed off anyone…
What Does An Energy Vampire Look Like
An energy vampire does not have long pointed teeth or wear a black cape. Most energy vampires are undetectable upon first glance. They appear as well meaning normal people. It is only when you spend a little time with an energy vampire that their true colors may be revealed.
The goal of an energy vampire is to control your space. They use a variety of ways to manipulate you that fall into two major categories – extroverted and introverted.
Types Of Energy Vampires
The extroverted energy vampire will seem highly attractive. You might find yourself mysteriously fascinated by them. They may have a strong opinion about themselves, their ideas and beliefs. In a more negative light, their self-serving outgoing nature may cause them to be stubborn, opinionated or angry. Whatever form they take, then endeavor to control your energy in an external outgoing way. Extroverted energy vampires are sometimes hard to detect.
Introverted energy vampires, on the other hand, take on a very different form. They are also more easily spotted. They may complain incessantly about their problems giving you little if any opportunity to respond or interact. They may throw pity parties or have a “poor me” attitude towards life – the consummate victim.
Both types of energy consumers may use guilt, fear, anger, sadness or a variety of emotions to manipulate your energy. Think about the drama queen who can stir up the energy in a room in a single bound.
Characteristics Of The Host (The Energy Vampire’s Victim)
An individual who’s life force energy is being drained by an energy vampire will often feel tired, bored, lack motivation, become irritated, overwhelmed, disoriented, depressed or feel out of sorts even after a brief encounter. Hosts tend to be suggestible, have weak boundaries and are often afraid or unwilling to say “NO”. Many times, they are people pleasers who do not like to let other down.
Energy vampires steal vitality from their victims by upsetting their auric field. They knock their hosts out of their bodies, leaving them in a dissociative state. The vampire achieves this through one of his or her well-practiced introverted or extroverted manipulation tactics. We are in a dissociative state when we are not in the present moment. Our mind wanders and we become unaware of what is going on around us. In essence, “we space out” thus leaving the door open for the energy vampire to invade.
Energy Vampire Hosts
Being the victim of an energy vampire is not all one sided. The host can get something in return that keeps him or her giving their energy away. The interactions they have might leave them feeling loved, needed, valued or in some cases safe. Some even find their exchanges with an energy vampire satisfying or believe that they are fulfilling their life purpose. Remember, many energy vampire hosts have been trained from an early age to provide their life force energy to others.
What You Can Do To Stop The Drain Of An Energy Vampire
The first step in stopping the victimization of energy vampirism is to wake up to what is going on. Are you consistently experiencing one of the symptoms listed earlier when you are around certain individuals? You might be acting as a host to one of these parasitic creatures if you are. Once you identify the threat, steps can be taken to lessen the hold they have on you.
As you may recall, energy vampires prey on individuals with weak boundaries and fragile auric fields. Through their control tactics, they interfere with the flow of your life force energy causing you to disassociate from your body. Taking steps to protect your aura and your energy space will increase your boundaries and make it harder for them to feed.
Tips To Strengthen Yourself From An Energy Vampire’s Drain
Stopping their ability to nourish themselves off you can be as easy as getting yourself, as spirit, back into your body. Try closing your eyes and taking a deep breath when you are around one of these individuals. Allow your whole self to ground and your essence to relax. This will help you reassert yourself and bring you back into your body. Getting back into your body calms and centers your psyche. It strengthens your boundaries and auric field. It will help you to return to the present moment.
You can also try crossing your arms with the intention of strengthening and protecting your auric field. Holding up your hand as in “Talk to the hand” will also help to define and strengthen your boundaries. If you know you are going to be around one of these energy suckers, imagine a mirror, reflective surface facing away from you, sitting about 18 – 24 inches away from your body. This will put the mirror on the outside edge of your auric field and will work to reflect their ill intentioned energy back at them.
Are You A Victim Of An Energy Vampire
If you come to realize that you have been a host to energy vampires your whole life, take the time to look at yourself and your life frankly. Work to resolve old wounds. Uncover why you keep giving your energy away and identify any secondary benefit you might be gaining from these negative interactions. They say that knowledge is power and with any kind of personal transformation recognizing we have a problem is 50% of the solution.
Our lives are all about choices and sometimes the choices we have to make can be hard. In the case of dealing with an energy vampire at times the only choice we are left with is to walk away. We are honoring our energy, our autonomy and ourselves when we end a relationship with an energy vampire. This is the only way to stop the ongoing attacks with some individuals.
Intentional or not, energy vampires, unlike their movie counterparts are real. Their need to feed off your life force energy is real as well. Their negative behavior compromises you each time it occurs. Their tactics for knocking you out of your body and putting you into a disassociate state robs you of your choices and interfere with your ability to live a happy self-directed life.
