Protect Yourself From Energy Vampires

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comPeople have the power to either energize or drain us because we are all energetic spiritual beings in human form. This is especially true if you are highly sensitive and empathic.

Energy vampires are people who mostly unintentionally drain or ‘steal’ the energy of others, leaving everyone they interact with feeling mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually drained, even depressed.

Although they may not be intentionally malicious or evil, their dysfunctional personalities and toxic behavior patterns can have a detrimental effect on our health and well-being.

Energy thieves are everywhere, from the workplace to our social circles. Understanding their effects and protecting yourself from their toxicity is critical to mental and emotional well-being.

It is important to recognize the signs and patterns in your interactions with these people. There are many signs that you may be the victim of an energy vampire. Some of the most common indicators include feeling drained or exhausted, having a change in mood or energy level, or difficulty concentrating or making decisions after spending time with someone. You may also feel that you are always giving and never receiving from someone, or that you are being used or manipulated by them.

A predominant reason for energy vampires is that the vast majority of us are energetically depleted and out of balance. And once our subtle energy field gets distorted, “feeding” on each other may be an automatic occurrence ~ Scott Jeffrey

Types Of Energy Vampires

Energy vampires are diverse and do not all display the same characteristics and behaviors. Some common styles of energy theft and characteristic behaviors include:

The Complainer. A chronic worrier who constantly focuses on the negative aspects of their life. They rarely express gratitude or appreciate the good things in their lives. Instead, they dwell on problems and find fault with everything. Dealing with a complainer can be exhausting because it’s hard to stay positive and upbeat when they’re constantly bringing you down.

The Dramatizer. Drama queens and kings thrive on attention, theatrics, and public excitement. They love to exaggerate situations and their emotions, and make a big deal out of everything. They just seem to have a knack for creating and attracting a lot of upheaval and drama. They always seem to be in the midst of a major crisis or meltdown, needing the help and support of others. It is overwhelming and draining to be drawn into their emotional roller coaster way of life.

The Killjoy: Also known as negative nellies, wet blankets, or debbie downers, this person always sees the glass as half empty and has a very negative attitude toward life. They can always be counted on to point out the downside or potential risks of absolutely everything, leaving no room for any joy, hope or excitement.

The Critic. Nothing is ever good enough for them and they can find fault with just about everyone and everything. They nitpick, criticize, evaluate negatively, and judge others. Their constant criticism undermines your self-esteem and makes you feel inadequate.

The Victim. Some people enjoy playing the victim card and are always ready with a new sob story about some perceived slight. They like to cast themselves in the role of the helpless and powerless person who is always being wronged or mistreated. They constantly seek sympathy and attention from others and refuse to take responsibility for their own actions. They also tend to be quick to blame others.

The Manipulator. Some people are able to manipulate almost any situation to their advantage. They rarely say what they mean and usually have a hidden agenda. One of their most toxic behaviors is ‘gaslighting,’ a form of manipulation in which they try to get someone else to question their own reality and sanity. They use gaslighting techniques to undermine their target’s confidence and make them doubt their own judgment.

The One-Upper. They always have to outdo your achievements or life experiences. They constantly compete and compare themselves to others, trying to make their accomplishments, possessions, or successes seem greater than everyone else’s. They have a narcissitic, addictive need to always be superior or special.

The Psychic Vampire. The most dangerous type of energy vampire because they consciously and deliberately manipulate and steal other people’s auric energy or life force through supernatural or occult means. The psychic vampire literally dims or steals the ‘light and love’ of others. Some do this mentally through telepathy, spellcasting, astral projection, dream casting, or psychic attack, while some do it through physical means, such as standing in close proximity or touching their victims, or sending them an object charged with their own demonic energy.

A psychic attack is the sending of negative energy with the intention of causing harm to another person. This negative energy is usually projected in the form of thoughts based on jealousy, envy, anger, and other negative emotions.

Dream casting is the occult practice of using the dream state to communicate with others or influence their thoughts and actions. Although it is most often used for healing, self-improvement, and spiritual growth, it can also be used for negative purposes, such as causing harm to others. Succubus and incubus dreams, which typically involve sexual encounters in the dream state, are an extreme version of this type of psychic assault.

When we are pushed to the mental and emotional limit by others, our bodies get depleted as our auric field is consumed with energy that’s not our own. While we may not notice it at first, our magic, intuition, and work can suffer when people are feeding off our energy — just like vampires ~ Lisa Stardust

The Effects Of Energy Theft

Energy vampires can wreak havoc on your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual state. Their constant negativity, drama, or criticism can leave you feeling emotionally drained, stressed, and anxious. Over time, these interactions can undermine your self-esteem and affect your overall well-being. It’s like carrying a backpack full of heavy rocks that emit toxic radiation wherever you go.

The effects of energy vampires are not limited to your mental and emotional state. They can also affect your physical health. Chronic stress, which can result from interactions with energy vampires, has been linked to a number of health problems.

When you experience stress, your body releases hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol, which can cause your heart rate and blood pressure to increase and your muscles to tense. If you experience chronic stress, these physical changes can take a toll on your body and lead to a variety of health problems, including:

– Anxiety
– Depression
– Digestive problems
– Headaches
– Muscle tension and pain
– Heart disease, heart attack, high blood pressure, and stroke
– Sleep problems
– Weight gain
– Problems with memory and concentration

It’s therefore no exaggeration to say that the presence of energy vampires in your life can be a real threat to your health, wellness and even your longevity.

There are plenty of reasons why people develop energy-draining behaviors, such as mental health conditions, certain attachment types, and past trauma. Some people — including empaths — are more susceptible to being emotionally drained than others ~ Hope Gillette 

Protecting Yourself From Energy Vampires

Recognizing the energy vampires in your life is the first step in protecting yourself from their influence and impact. The next critical step is to take action to protect your health and well-being. This doesn’t necessarily mean cutting them out of your life completely, as this is sometimes not possible or practical, although ‘no contact’ or complete avoidance is often the best course of action.

If you cannot completely walk away, then you must at least set firm boundaries, proactively manage your interactions with them, and ensure that you practice a daily spiritual and self-care routine to protect your energy.

The following strategies are essential to protecting yourself from energy vampires:

Evaluate the relationship. Consider whether the relationship with an energy vampire is worth maintaining. It may be time to reevaluate the connection if the person is constantly draining your energy and adding little to no positive value.

Limit contact. If you can’t avoid an energy vampire altogether, limit the amount of time you spend with them. Choose to spend your time with positive and supportive people who uplift and energize you.

Set boundaries. Set clear boundaries with energy vampires. Let them know what you’re comfortable with and what you’re not. For example, limit your time with them or politely disengage from negative conversations.

Be assertive. Don’t feel obligated to listen to their negativity or get involved in their drama. Set clear boundaries and let them know you don’t appreciate their draining behavior.

Pick your battles: Pick your battles wisely. Not every negative encounter with an energy vampire requires confrontation. Sometimes it’s best to let things go and save your energy for more important things.

Don’t enable them. Don’t give in to their demands or rescue them from their problems. This only reinforces their belief that they can count on you to take care of them, which will continue their draining behavior.

Find your joy. Prioritize your emotional health and engage in activities, hobbies, and interests that bring you joy and relaxation. Surround yourself with positive people who are supportive and uplifting.

Practice self-care. Engage in self-care activities that help you replenish your mental, emotional, and physical energy. Make sure you get enough sleep, eat healthy foods, and exercise regularly. This will help keep your energy levels high and make you less vulnerable to energy theft.

Seek support. reach out to trusted friends, relatives, or a therapist or spiritual advisor about your experiences with energy vampires. They can offer guidance and support as you navigate these challenging relationships.

Spiritual practice. Spiritual practices such as prayer, meditation, visualization, divination, yoga, breath work and journaling help to center, ground, heal and align your energy with the universal flow. Access to free-flowing divine love and light is a resource the energy vampire typically lacks, that is why they try to share or steal yours. By staying spiritually aware and empowered you strengthen your connection to the divine and your higher self, and achiieve sense of peace, clarity, joy and empowerment. Call upon the protection and support of a higher power and your angels, guides, guardians, ancestors, or loved ones in spirit. Always remember, you are not without support and you are never alone!

Energy shielding. If you tend to be a victim of constant energy vampirism, your daily spiritual routine must include the practice of energy shielding or some form or psychic protection. There are a number of ways to shield your energy, such as visualizing a protective bubble around you or wearing crystals or amulets that are said to protect against energy theft.

Cord cutting. In cases of extreme energy theft, the practice of severing or ‘cutting’ the energetic cord that connects you to the energy vampire can be very liberating and healing. These energy cords are formed through any type of relationship you have in your life, including romantic relationships, friendships, family relationships, and even work relationships. They are often strongest and most difficult to sever when they have been formed through intense shared experiences, strong emotions, or traumatic events. When these connections are no longer healthy or beneficial, they can become very toxic and drain our energy. Cord cutting is a way to break these unhealthy soul energy connections and free yourself from the negative energy leaks they create. It is a powerful tool for healing and personal growth. There are various ways to practice cord cutting yourself, but for best results it is recommended to work with a professional spiritual therapist, energy healer, or shaman to guide you through the process.

Protecting yourself from energy vampires is not an act of selfishness; it’s an act of self-preservation. By protecting your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being, you will be better equipped to live a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life. Remember that you have complete control over who and what affects your energy.

There is such an abundance of universal life force energy freely available to everyone that nobody needs to steal yours. Even psychic vampires have complete access to this eternal, omnipresent source of divine love and light if they make the effort to change their ways and do the work to become a better person. You deserve a life of joy, resilience and balance. Surround yourself with positivity, protection and spiritual strength, and do not let anyone drain your vitality and steal your joy.
