Who Are Energy Vampires

Energy vampires are emotionally immature individuals who have the sense that the whole world revolves around them. They are almost incapable of seeing things from another person’s perspective. They often lack empathy. They believe that they must take everything they can get from others and that giving anything will deprive them of essential resources. It’s as if the whole world exists just to serve them and you are the latest object upon which they have set their sights for exploitation. -

I have already listed some features of them. Let me remind you of some:

  • being a difficult person - a victim, pushy, inciting conflicts,

  • talking behind others' backs, criticising and saying mean things,

  • making other people puzzled, hurt, or confused,

  • spreading negative energy by not keeping promises and lying,

  • energy (e.g., negative self-talk)

How To Protect from Energy Vampires

There are many tools that you can use. I have decided to choose the most efficient and simple ones, for the most common cases. My next article will describe more tips. But the most common solutions include:

1. Keep High Vibrations

It is true that not every psychic vampire steals other people’s energy knowingly or maliciously. They probably just need a little guidance and support along their journey. Yet as I wrote in my last post, they suck your energy by playing a victim or just having entities.

The Solution

Protect your aura. You may use black sage, candles, crystals and visualisation. I will write more about each of these methods soon. Do not forget about living according to the values of the Light and using positive language (i.e. not judging or labels, swearing, malediction and so on)

Sometimes you need to cut off a given person, the so-called "poor me" type. During a conversation, change the topic or let them know that you are busy and need to go. However, do not forget about giving them a few positive words about their relationship and it will fix the problem.

A Word of Caution

This type of energy vampire is without underlying intentions. However, they may just need some assistance in getting back on a path toward uplifting their own energy.

It happens because we all need help from time to time. It just may be one of those days in their lives, when they need someone to talk to.

If you can easily access your own positivity, this person’s energy should not affect you psychically. Yet when they insist to stay negative or do not accept your advice even though you uplift them, the time has come to cut off.

2. Use Affirmations

Affirmations can make wonders. We all know that solar plexus and heart chakras are the most endangered when you meet with various kinds of energy.

For example, when you walk into a room full of people, let's say the restaurant, you instantly feel blanketed by the overwhelming negativity in the room.

The same applies to pubs, hospitals, courts, and churches. You can feel suffocating when in the company of so many people radiating negative vibrations.

Of course, I need to mention that not all people in crowded places spread negativity, although the sad truth is that there are still in minority.

Then remember to silently cite some of your favourite positive affirmations or mantras to keep yourself balanced. Let's give me a couple of examples:

  • I am the light and there is nothing above my light which can enlighten all kinds of darkness.

  • I want to live my way, listen to my heart and find my own guru.

  • I am the wonder, beloved child of the Universe who loves and approves of myself.

Affirmations For Solar Plexus and Heart Chakra:

  • I am strong and brave.

  • I create my own life.

  • I have control over my life

  • I am grateful for all that I have.

  • I live in balance and peace. I am strong and brave.

  • I create my own life.

  • I have control over my life

  • I am loved and I love.

Affirmations can be combined with visualisation. For example, imagine yourself being bathed in white light from the Source of Light. You can also be shielded in a protective bubble of positive energy so that not to be brought down by the dis-ease of others.

4. Distance Yourself or Cut Off

As I wrote earlier, sometimes energy vampires are stubborn or malicious. If they continue with the manipulative or self-pitying behaviour without wanting to take responsibility for their own energy, you will need to let the person go completely.

You cannot have a healthy relationship with someone who refuses to take control of their life, even if it is a close friend or family member but doing the least work on becoming a more positive, independent person.


Never feel guilty for wanting to leave an unhealthy relationship because sometimes no other options are available. You just cannot carry their burdens on your shoulders forever.

If you allow this behaviour to continue then you give them permission to function as a victim. On the contrary, cutting ties with them will force energy vampires to find the strength within to both uplift themselves and others.

5. Meditate Daily For a Minimum of 10 Minutes

Meditation is one of the best ways to protect yourself from emotional manipulation and being taken advantage of. Just connect to the Source of energy and embrace your body and mind with it. Hence, you have a higher tolerance for dealing with the wide variety of energies you will encounter, and what is more, will not be phased by the clever, devious tactic of energy vampires.

While meditating you can also destroy the influence of all negative entities and strengthen your aura. Meditating can also help you to solve problems concerning the relationship with energetic vampires.

6. Smile

You might reckon how to benefit from smiling. Scientists discovered that a smile carries with it a high vibration. Hence, when you share it with others, they also feel the effects of your positive energy.

Just think of how you feel when a stranger smiles at you on the street or in the supermarket, you instantly feel happier, right?

Well, it works in the same way when you pass the smile on to others because ripples create waves. Therefore, make sure to keep the positive energy flowing by giving away your own happiness to others.

In A Nutshell

Today you have learned some tips on coping with energetic vampires. They work in the case of all kinds of vampiric beings and include laughter, meditation, affirmation, cutting off and keeping high vibrations. Good luck with keeping energetic vampires at bay in your life. With love,
