Psychic Vampires

Today, someone gave me some great advice and told me about "psychic vampires."  I found the phrase funny, but looked it up.  I found it extremely helpful and wonder if you are unknowingly being bitten.

"When a psychic attack takes place, the psychic vampire receives an energy surge while the victim experiences fatigue.

People who "suck" the energy of others are called "psychic vampires." This "sucking" takes place when one's energy is depleted and needs to be replenished so he or she "sucks" the energy of another person. It is not unusual for a person who is ill or feeling inadequate emotionally to draw upon or deplete energized individuals of their life force. These "suckers" are not bad people, most of them are not aware on a conscious level that they are doing what they are doing. Still, their unknowing actions can play havoc with anyone who leaves an energetic opening for this type of thievery. It is important for us to be aware that we may be susceptible to having our energies stolen from us and learn ways to protect ourselves. The harm in a psychic attack is that there is no fair exchange of energy and therefore one feels depleted while the other becomes energized.

Traits of a Psychic Vampire

  • experiences feelings of abandonment or rejection
  • needs constant reassurance
  • never feels satisfied
  • seeks nurturing
  • low energy - fatigued"
There are ways to protect yourself from being drained by others.  Firstly, recognize this is happening!  Be aware of how you feel after spending time with others.  Try to distance yourself or "detach" from the people who drain the life out of you!  Cutting ties may be necessary for both of you.  The vampires may learn to stop requiring the life force of others, or may just move on to someone else.  Either way, you are not doing anyone any good by allowing the dependency to continue.  Save your energy and protect yourself.  This may ultimately be the only way to save or teach the psychic vampire as well.

Our Deepest Fear

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?"
by Marianne Williamson from A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles

Today was sidetracked by the pain in my arm from shoveling! The pain is constant and is taking my focus away from good things. It brought me down today and I noticed my thoughts starting to revert back to bad things. (Like feeling LOST in a crowd.) Physical pain can really wear me down, so I like to stay healthy! I don't take pain killers, so tomorrow I will rest and take supplements and try my best to help my arm heal.

Something positive to be grateful for... *YOU.* Also, finding this teeny old photo and me and Britty from 1998. Was that really 11 years ago? We're still having fun. I'm grateful for that and wish it could never end.

Lucky Me!

I am a little surprised by a recent opportunity to see Deepak Chopra in person. I am officially going to see him speak and am excited yet learning not to be surprised by these "coincidences!" When you align yourself with what you most desire, it all starts coming in!

Another coincidence was finding a book in my storage room by Deepak Chopra! I didn't remember buying it years ago and its date is 1994. Wow! I remember being interested in spiritual ideas and loved reading more and more! Funny that I find the book all these years later and read it again with a new perspective. It's not just a bunch of cool words anymore!

This book I uncovered is called, "The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success." It's fairly simple at first glance. I re-read it now and realize something that someone said to me yesterday is very true: "You've come a long way." Yes! This book is another way of saying things that I hold as unshakable truths.

Here is a bit from the book that I live by and wanted to share:

"Responsibility means not blaming anyone or anything for your situation, including yourself.... Once you do this, every so-called upsetting situation will become an opportunity for the creation of something new and beautiful, and every so-called tormentor or tyrant will become our teacher. Reality is an interpretation."

He goes on to talk about defenselessness and how you lose the need to convince or persuade others about your point of view. It's very freeing.

Deepak's books and videos and seminars can get pretty deep, so I am curious about this upcoming discussion. I'm ready for it.

Lastly, I wanted to share the perfect man I built today with Britty! With a carrot nose, sun-dried tomato eyes and a cranberry smile, we're loving him!!

Green Drink and Raw Stuffs!

**This never posted yesterday!  Now it's Day 4 of the challenge, but I wanted to post this even though it's late...**

Day 3 of the 100 day challenge, and that challenge includes eating healthier!  My typical vegan diet is being shaken up a bit with the help of a variety of raw foods.  I have a goal of a minimum of one meal per day as raw, which has not been difficult at all so far.  Today, that meal turned into two:

Raw Pasta and Cheeze Sauce:

Spiralized Zucchini (so good!) tossed with raw Cheeze Sauce made up of a red pepper, macadamia nuts, Celtic sea salt and cayenne pepper.  (recipe from the RawFoodWorld TV show linked to the right on my blog!)

Green Drink:

2 cups green leaf lettuce
1 cup turnip greens
2 celery sticks
1 apple
1 pomegranate
water from the pomegranate (when I soaked it to get the seeds out easily)

Whizzed around in the Vitamix for a moment, and this was a surprisingly good drink!  I sealed 2 more portions of it in glass containers and will be having those tomorrow!

Nothing else eventful happened much with Day 3.  It was a bit discouraging.  No surprises, no good news, and it was a lonely day, pretty much!  I did keep busy clearing out old photos and journal entries in my storage room.  (I think this has the answer to why today was not so great!)

One last note - I did discover journal entries from about 15 years ago.  I had forgotten some of the things I had been through.  I was a little angry when I read it and remembered the circumstances.  I have forgiven people and moved on, and apparently had forgotten the details.  This was a downer today, definitely.  What was a bit spooky about it all was how many times I was writing what I wished could happen.  I wished it page after page after page.  (not specific things, but general things that would free me of the situation I was in.)  The spooky part was - ALL of the things I said I wanted eventually happened.  Every single one.  Even the seemingly unreasonable ones.  It all happened within a year or two of my writing what I did.  I didn't know about intentions or manifesting or attracting, but I did it.  Knowing this, can you image what we can do when we are aware of how things work and also being more specific with our goals?

I had asked for many, many things in those journals.  I got every single one of them.  I just forgot to be specific.  Perhaps I did free myself of that situation years and years ago, but only to get tossed into another of the same!  Perhaps I did find a guy that seemed more interested in Britty... but I forgot to ask that he be honest and healthy and happy!  So I should be fine tuning those goals and wishes, because they DO happen.  They did 15 years ago, and they can only be healthier and better today.

Oh, and one more thing...  pomegranates are one of my new favorite fruits!!!!!  I love them!!!

"Most people are extras in their own movie."    ~ Bob Proctor

Day 1 of the 100 Day Challenge is nearly over!  It's very fun to be part of such a big group of people to inspire and be inspired by!

My day 1 included lots of my intentions like:  Green drinks, raw foods, focusing on work and even finishing early to have more time to do things at home.  I donated 5 more bags of my old clothing (wooo, it feels good to give that stuff away!) and pre-ordered my Vegan Body Building book!!!!  I seemed to have more time than ever and wasn't quite sure what to do with it all!  Usually, I'd work late and go into work late...  come home late and work more.  We like the new schedule a lot and it leaves me more than enough time for working out, making dinner and fixing up the house... especially that storage room!  grrrrr... never ending project!   Plus, it gives me time to go on Facebook and CCOR and YouTube to watch my favorite channels!  (Raw Food World, Brian Tracy, Lilou!)  It's nice to take care of yourself for once, isn't it?  I'm hearing that a lot from the other people in the challenge too.

My BIGGEST challenge is to stop the negative/limiting thoughts about myself like:  "I can't do that."  or thinking I am lazy.  I have to be careful of living by excuses too such as, "I'm too old for that" or "It's *his* fault"  haha.  It happens a lot and it's nice to see others aware of it in themselves and working on it too!  It's quite a journey. 

99 more days to go!!!!!!
