If you’ve heard the term ‘energetic vampire’, you’ve probably been wondering what it means. Namely, energetic vampire is a term used to refer to people who ‘feed’ with other people’s energy during a conversation. Probably, you’re also wondering why they’re doing this in the first place. It is believed that such people are empty on the inside and lack the bravery to confront themselves and resolve their own problems and issues. Instead, they torment others.
One can never prove or explain what they’re actually doing-they’re like a bottomless pit. Deep inside, they’re unhappy and scared. Most of them steal others’ energy unconsciously. Regardless of whether they do this intentionally or not, the outcome is the same- you’re exhausted. Just when you think that they’ve changed, they start again. Until they understand on their own what they need to change, they won’t be able to do that.
How to defend from energetic vampires
First, and foremost, you need to understand that you owe nothing to anyone. Especially your energy, even when it comes to family and friends. If you don’t allow your energy to be stolen, it won’t be. However, this is not the end for the energetic vampire. Hence, he/she will continue to prey for the next victim.
When you allow your energy to be stolen, you prevent the vampire from developing and finding the causes for their negative behavior. You maintain a status quo which is detrimental to you and to the energetic vampire as well.
Intention is very important. It can be felt, even without words. So, when you want to prevent an energy theft, you have to be decisive. Don’t feel unpleasantly because you don’t have a reason to feel like that: you owe others nothing! Once you’ve put an end to energy theft, do some of these things:
According to experts in body language, crossing your legs and arms is a defensive position, and with reason: by sitting in this position you dissociate from the interlocutor on an energetic level. Put your right palm across your navel, and then put the left palm on top. By doing this, you block energy thefts. Furthermore, you can also visualize a glass bell around you. Regardless of whether someone is sitting next to you or not, imagine being inside this bell which protects you.
Once you do this, you’ll be surprised how quickly the energetic vampire will find an excuse to go away. When they feel that they can’t no longer steal your energy they’ll be gone! What’s more, never think, for any reason, that you need to be kind and proceed with the conversation. Either stop talking or answer with very short words.
Also, smile and nod your head while doing these techniques. However, it’s important to note that these techniques won’t work if you haven’t decided to prevent your energy from being stolen. Moreover, never be sorry if this energetic vampire happens to be a close family member or a good friend. If they did this to you, they’re not worth it.
All in all, the next time you find yourself near an energetic vampire, be sure to draw a line immediately and show that you won’t allow your energy to be stolen. Your energy should be given only to those who return it back, those who appreciate it. Rely on your heart-it will always tell you the truth and you can never be wrong. Surround yourself with good people only. People who value you and grow together with you!
