How To Protect Yourself Against Energy Vampires
Updated: Feb 18
Energy stealers are everywhere! They are your family members, your friends and they are your co-workers and YOU may even be one yourself. A more common name is an Energy Vampire and we all know what vampires do! In this case the vampire is sucking our vital energy, depleting us and causing us to become unhealthy emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. Spiritual purification and cord cutting are some tools that can keep the vampires away.
What does the term Energy Vampire mean anyway? An Energy Vampire is a person that steals other people's energies because they are living their life in a victim consciousness and believe that everything happens to them. Living in this manner is very dis-empowering. Therefore in order for them to feel better about themselves they need to attach themselves to another person's energy field.
In order for an Energy Vampire to attach themselves to your energy body, they form cords attaching the two of you together. These cords are not visible to the naked eye but they can be seen with the psychic third eye. When they need a boost, they unconsciously steal your energy instead of using their own! These cords are also like highways and run both ways. That means that you will also receive their energy whether it is positive or negative. If they have a headache, you may also develop a headache. If they are depressed, you may become depressed. If they are angry, you may become angry and so on. As you can see, this can be very detrimental to your health. At an unconscious level, you have allowed the vampire or vampires to attach themselves to your energy body through these cords. These cords prevent you from really being the real you! It is imperative that these cords be severed and sometimes a spiritual purification is required for your well-being and also for the growth of the other person.
How do we recognize an Energy Vampire? Some traits of the dis-empowered energy stealer are:
Feels lonely or abandoned
Feels they have been rejected
Needs constant reassurance
Never feels satisfied
Doesn't like to be alone
Seeks nurturing or feels they need to be taken care of
Low energy and fatigued
They have a poor me attitude
Is a drama king or queen
Constant talker that never allows you to speak
Needs you to be their therapist or rescuer fixing their problems
The blamer making you feel guilty about things
Vindictive by putting you down
A person that is unhappy a lot
Tries controlling you or your life
Manipulates you to get things their way
How do I know if I am being psychically attacked? You may experience:
Loss of energy
Small diminishing aura
Leaks, holes and/or tears in your aura
And a whole lot more!
Unfortunately, too many people are simply not aware of their energetic bodies and how they operate. Once people start taking responsibility for creating their own lives and taking back their personal power this will not be as prevalent. (Granted other conditions also can be the cause of these symptoms besides being energetically attacked). Either way it is detrimental to your health, in all areas of your energetic being, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Okay, so how do you protect yourself from this? First you need to become aware of which individuals deplete your energy and limit your contact with them. But simply not being in their physical presence does not stop them from draining you. You need to release all the negative emotions that you carry within yourself. If you hold anger, hurt, jealousy, etc. inside your being, it is like you are shackled to a ball and chain, holding you hostage with your own creation.
Releasing negative emotions brings freedom as fear is the robber of peace. Why must I do this? Because any disharmony in our four energetic bodies will cause us to be vulnerable, so that darkness and confusion can enter. Being aware of this is empowering. I stress this, do not go into fear now that you are aware of this. Simply take the steps to protect yourself. Darkness consists of anything that is of a lower/heavier vibration such as anger, fear, depression, jealousy, hatred etc. When angry thoughts are directed at you, they can penetrate your weak and vulnerable areas like arrows. What happens is they take away your clarity and fill you with confusion and drain your energy.
The following are some tools to empower yourself from Energy Vampires.
Here is a simple cord cutting exercise. Cord cutting should be done on a daily basis and much more often when we are going through a stressful period in our life. These cords should be cut from our loved ones as well. No cord attached to anyone or thing is good.
Take some deep cleansing breaths. In through the nose and out through the mouth. Call upon Spirit and your Spirit Guides and ask for assistance in cutting all cords that are attached to your being. I like to call on Archangel Michael. Visualize Spirit and your Guide’s positive energy swirling around your entire being severing all the cords. Know that no cord can remain intact and they are returning to where they came from. When you feel the process is complete, thank Spirit, your Guides or Angels for their assistance. It is done.
Here are some physical steps for purification:
Burn all relevant photographs or objects holding memories of the person, place or situation.
Write down all feelings of frustration, anger, hurt, fear, etc., and burn the paper or bury it. Repeat this step as often as necessary.
Clear all the clutter from every room of your home. Rule of thumb. If you haven't used in a year it's not likely you will! Get rid of it.
Clean and if necessary redecorate your home. Bringing nature indoors is wonderful energy.
Check there are no books in your bookshelves or pictures on your walls that have negative energy. Surround yourself with high vibrational objects, spiritual books, spiritual pictures, plants, fresh flowers etc.
Smudge with sage, cedar and sweet grass and invoke the help of Spirit, your Guides and your Higher Self.
Cleanse and purify your crystals and dedicate them to the Light.
Light candles and use pure essential oils.
