Many empaths and highly sensitive people believe that some of the challenging or unpleasant individuals they deal with daily are 'psychic vampires'. These so-called energy thieves are believed to 'drain' or 'steal' the energy of their victims.
The spiritual truth is that there is an unlimited source of psychic energy and spiritual abundance available to all of us, if we only allow it to flow freely into our reality experience. We are all deserving of this. All we need to do to tap into this infinite source of wellness is to invite it into our daily consciousness, embrace it with open arms and savor its presence with gratitude and appreciation.
We all originate from this Universal Source, we all consist of this source completely, and we will continue to a part of this source in all its fullness forever. It cannot be drained, stolen or taken away from you.
Each time you experience people as ‘draining’, you need to acknowledge that your energy vibration was already shaky to begin with. The so-called ‘energy vampire’ simply stomped into your tranquil little world and tipped the scale. Their presence is simply the tiny straw that breaks the camel’s back. This only happens to me when I have been neglecting my daily routine of self-care, such as adequate sleep, meditation, healthy diet, daily affirmations, and taking some time to relax or enjoy leisure activities.
Furthermore, it may also be a good idea to take an honest look at some of the most recent vibrational signals you have been sending out, prior to your encounter with the 'vampire'. Have you been entertaining thoughts and feelings of anger, sadness, revenge, frustration, rivalry or self-pity? These are all lower-level vibrations, and they are certain to open up a few cracks in your overall equilibrium. Have you ever considered that you may have invited that encounter with the energy thief into your life?
This disturbed state of energy vibration is called psychic over-sensitivity or psychic overload. You may be more susceptible to this because you are more open to spiritual or psychic energies. If you don't take care of yourself, you will certainly feel ‘drained’ constantly. Some symptoms of psychic over-sensitivity include feelings of exhaustion, anxiety, restlessness, sadness, depression, extreme sensitivity to the moods of others or a lack of mental focus.
When I discovered the truth about my empathic nature, I had to find ways to shield myself and maintain my spiritual equilibrium. I sometimes jokingly refer to myself as the “boy in the bubble”, because I live in a protective bubble of psychic energy at all times.
Next time an ‘energy vampire’ crosses your path, thank them for being your guide towards greater spiritual awareness and personal well-being. Be grateful for the valuable life lessons you learn from them, and share your new found sense of freedom and mastery with them.
Not only will you feel good when you are perfectly in tune with the goodness of the universal energy source, but you will also teach and guide the ‘energy challenged’ by your example. That way we will ultimately have less negative souls around and share our wonderful planet with so many more happy, positive people.
Always remember that there are only two kinds of people who can 'drain' your energy: those you love, and those you fear. In both instances it is you who let them in. They did not force their way into your aura, or pry their way into your reality experience. Nobody can make you feel different unless you allow yourself to feel different. It is you, only you.
