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.

LOL! I was not expecting that. :)

That's weird how people can steal you're energy. Sadly, I think I might do it a little! I have to stop it because I don't relish the thought of becoming a psychic vampire! :p

Lol!! It says "anonymous" but when you used the word RELISH... I knew who you were! LOL!

PS - You are not a psychic vampire by any means. Oh, and please pass the mustard!

I have used this term for awhile and it's so true! It's the reason why I hate going to Wal-Mart. I feel so drained when I leave there. People need to find a way to make their own energy and stop sucking mine away!!! lol

Candi said...

Lisa! Lol! Well if related, I guess you just distance yourself until they knock it off!! Lol!

Omg, Tonya I laughed at the mention of Walmart! Yes, it's another world in there!! Lol!

Oh, PLEASE! Detaching from that person isn't the only way to defend yourself against a psyvamp, people. Research it on your own a little. All you have to do is find out small hand-gesture defenses, like hooking your middle and thumb fingers and mentally picturing your aura as a hard eggshell sort of thing. That's the most common way, anyhoo. Besides, what if your best friend happened to be a psyvamp without you knowing? Would you want to detach or would it be worth it? Exactly.
And trust me, if there are psyvamps feeding off of people in Walmart they have some seriously bad taste, I'm a sensor and partial psyvamp--trust me, most people's energies are totally not worth the trouble.
If you feel fatigued after you get out of Walmart then shopping takes too much thinking for you or you simply didn't have enough energy in the first place. Especially if you suffer from depression, but then you're always fatigued... Also it depends on how heavy your kart is, but I'm going too far.

Cool idea - but I can also apply the term say, to your crush - when he/she passes by and you are just weakest to your knees.

Most psychic vampires really don't have an idea that they are sucking energy from you. It is best to use gemstones like black tourmaline or black obsidian to prevent psychic attacks.
