Energy vampires are people who suck all of your psychic and emotional energy. You may not even realize they’re doing it until it’s too late. Usually, relationships are built on a healthy foundation of energetic and emotional give-and-take. But you’ve likely met energy suckers. After spending time with them, you feel fatigued and exhausted.
Some energy vampires don’t realize they’re draining other people’s energy. Most of them certainly aren’t doing it on purpose. They feel drained or inadequately charged, so they naturally draw on the life force of others. However, you still need to protect yourself against this. Because if you don’t, you’ll be chronically drained of all of your psychic energy. Here are some tips to help you protect yourself against energy vampires.
Understand What’s Going On
Try and understand just how an energy vampire works. The person likely is more vulnerable than you may think they are. They need energy to function, and you have energy. They have reasons for doing things the way they do them. But note that trying to understand them does not mean you must allow them to take advantage of you and take what they need from you.
Are You Partially to Blame?
Energy vampires don’t target a specific person on purpose. As mentioned earlier, they probably don’t even realize what they’re doing. You may be the victim of an energy vampire because you’re the type of person who feels as though you should do whatever you can do in order to help other people.
This is a good time to take an honest look at yourself and figure out what kind of person you are. It’s generally important to know how to stand up for yourself. This also helps when dealing with energy vampires. Having compassion for them doesn’t entitle them to use your energy for their own good. So, understanding what you’re doing wrong will help you prevent future problems in this area.
Keep the Right Company
You may sense that somebody is an energy vampire, but you can’t actually confirm this. Think about negative people that depress your mood whenever you spend time together. If you feel as though somebody’s presence is draining your energy, it may be healthier for you to break off your relationship with that person. This is a difficult decision you must fully think through.
Don’t Be an Energy Vampire
There’s a chance that you may be an energy vampire, and you didn’t know that you are. Are you feeling an absence of love in your life? Are you always seeking validation from others? If you are, then you may have a problem.
Analyze your behavior. Be sure you’re acting as a positive influence on your family, friends, colleagues, and other people around you. Ask yourself if you feel a need for approval, or if you crave acceptance. If so, start working from there. It’s crucial for you to take enough time to make sure that the changes you make in your habits and patterns of thinking become permanent.
If you don’t know where to start, a psychic can offer significant assistance. A psychic will be able to show you what you’re doing right, and can also offer useful advice on things about yourself you could start working to change.
