How to recognize an Energy Vampire!
Sometimes people drain us far more than we can handle. It happens time and time again to all of us. Walk away from situations like that; they leave permanent marks on your physical mental and ethereal bodies. How can you recognize a vampire? When you know that the mere thought of seeing them brings you negative feelings. Protect yourself and do not allow your kids into an environment of this sort, for it is not healthy.
The story of my own energy depletion starts from a very young age, having grown up in an environment where my mother was a very nice, but neurotic human being. She was always screaming and never satisfied with anything really. A constant complainer, basically unhappy for a considerable amount of time with anything or anyone in our family, yet never diagnosed as depressed or bipolar.
She was the person the whole house had to be gravitating around and both my brother and myself learned to live by the sidelines as we deemed her continuously immature and spoiled at the time. We had a great father who was keeping to the best of his ability the balance and the demonstrations of affection that we so much needed. Do not get me wrong, my mother is not a monster. She is someone who has an incredible amount of friends and is loved by everyone who meets her, because to everyone else she is a happy, interesting, giving, kind, albeit highly opinionated person with a lot of stamina and good energy.
Having a depressed or bipolar person living with you is not easy. Especially when you are a child. The constant ups and downs, the emotional abuse one suffers is because of this chemical imbalance in their brains. They are constantly changing because they cannot control whether they are happy, sad, tired or angry and they project their feeling of the moment on you. One minute they tell you how great you are and how they miss you and almost immediately they tell you are not good enough and you are selfish and inconsiderate and crazy; yes crazy.
We the children, see them as children unable to be the loving supporting parent that every child craves. Because we are hurt we become strong but extremely nervous because we have learned to walk on thin ice, because of their unpredictable behavior. Naturally this fear of trying to disturb the peace at home, turns into anger. Both my brother and I left our home as fast as we could once we became adults. Yes, no one can live in a home full of negative energy. I didn’t know at the time that living with a person who constantly takes away energy from you would affect my health. Now, I do.
But now the damage is done and I am trying to undo it on every level. I have a saying with my kids: “we hate needy people!” People who need to suck your energy dry in order to make themselves feel better. We all have many of those in our lives: the blamers, the guilt trippers, the gossipers, the Debbie downers, the fun haters, the whiners, the jealous bees…
So this is a warning to all of you to take care of yourselves because there are many vampires out there. Be aware of their presence.
Heal yourselves with loving kindness, and just to let you know, I have found help with reiki healers, tai yi healers, bio resonance, non-linear body scanning, meditation, yoga and psychotherapy!
The idea is to clear all the manifested negativity that has passed on to your bodies unfortunately by allowing others to do so.
Let’s move from suffering to joy!
One way to protect yourself from people who drain us, is to visualize that you are under a shower of silver light and then under a shower of golden light.
