Energy Vampires and How to (NOT) Deal With Them
I want to talk about energy vampires… If you’re a sensitive person, you probably immediately know what is meant by that, but for everyone else, an energy vampire is somebody who is emotionally stunted in some way, shape, or form - someone who believes that the world really revolves around them.
Sensitive people seem to enter into relationships with energy vampires a lot. The danger with this is that energy vampires are people who, because of whatever has happened to them, can't seem to sustain their own life force energy. And so they will pull energy from other people and it really does feel like energy is being sucked out of you - exactly what you would expect from a vampire.
Here’s the tricky thing about energy vampires - they are actually very intuitive and have a sixth sense for detecting people who are nurturing and caring, those who seemingly have energy to give away, and they seek out relationships with those individuals.
Energy vampires can be found in every area of your life - they could be somebody that you're in a friend, it can be somebody you work with, it could be a neighbor - if you start thinking about it, it’s likely that you can identify at least one of these people in your life. It’s important to remember that all relationships are an exchange of energy. What you need to evaluate is if your relationships have equality in the exchange of energy - if not, you may be in a relationship with an energy vampire.
Here are 5 ways to know if you are dealing with an energy vampire:
As I mention in the video, you don’t always have to cut ties with people you identify as energy vampires. It is possible to maintain a relationship with individuals, it simply requires that you become aware, use your tools, and create healthy boundaries that will ensure your energy isn’t depleted when you engage with them.
