A Psychic Vampire is a person who takes or “sucks” our energy from us. In an ideal world/situation, there would always be an equal give and take of energy, however this is not always the case. Those we call psychic vampires are not necessarily bad people. Most psychic vampires do not consciously realize they are doing it. When a psychic vampire takes our energy it results in a temporary surge of energy for the psychic vampire and a serious loss of mental and physical energy for the unsuspecting prey. If you suddenly feel emotionally or mentally depleted, you may be under attack by a psychic vampire. The unfortunate effects of prolonged energy loss are damage to the energy system itself and in some instances, serious illness.
Symptoms of a Psychic Attack:
- leaky or diminishing aura
- loss of energy
- muscle tension
- mental confusion
- chronic fatigue
- sleep disturbances
- depressed mood
- physical illness
Psychic Vampires can be men or women, young or old. They can be tween, teens, or adults. They can be professionals in business suits, wealthy dot. comers, CEOs, NBA stars or construction workers in hard hats. They can be a coworker, business associate, next-door neighbor, friend, family members or even spouses/lovers.
Those who give selflessly without balance can become doormats or martyrs or may “kill with kindness”. They may find it difficult to say “No.” On the opposite side of the spectrum you have those who take without thought; sometimes these people are kind at heart but have learned inappropriate ways to get energy. They may also be obviously selfish and thoughtless of others. Most of us sit somewhere closer to the middle and may fluctuate back and forth. The giver’s attitude of willingness creates an opening that enables a taker to connect to the giver. Connecting to each other, although generally unseen, literally creates a physical connection that we do not see with the naked eye. The Hunas have spoken about these connecting “cords” for centuries and they call them “Aka cords”. There are ways to cut these cords, which we will go into in just a minute.
Feeding on the energy of another person is a basic explanation of being a psychic vampire, however there are actions and events that can be psychic vampirism on a bigger or ongoing scale. Forms of psychic vampirism can include harboring ill thoughts towards someone, exploitation of a lover or friend, spreading malicious rumors, ruining a reputation, or betraying a trusted friend.
Collective Psychic Vampirism
On a much broader scale, psychic vampirism can occur in a vicious, collective form as sometimes seen among organizations that feed on prejudice and hate, or corporations that blatantly vampirize their employees through deception and greed. Narcotics trafficking, organized crime, and so-called “ethnic cleansing” along with discrimination based on age, race, gender, or sexual orientation are examples of collective psychic vampirism on an alarming scale. In its most widespread collective form, psychic vampirism can exist at a global level. Reckless pollution of the environment, irresponsible disregard for endangered species, and exploitation of the globe’s natural resources are examples of global vampirism that affects everyone and literally puts the future of the planet at risk.
Finally, it may seem hard to fathom, but psychic vampirism can occur in a self-contained, parasitic form that turns inward to feed upon oneself. In that internal form, the person ironically becomes both vampire and victim. Examples are of this are phobias, obsessions, and compulsions that can hover over us like monsters waiting to devour us.
Most of the time these cases of self-contained vampirism are caused by a past-life experience (and sometimes a childhood or prior experience in this lifetime that we may have blocked out or not associated with the fear). Usually these phobias, obsessions, etc. can be “cured” by discovering what that event was that is triggering this fear. This is why past-life regressions are so healing and helpful. They say “the truth shall set you free” and in many cases that is all it takes, just the new knowledge of what happened and realizing where the fear stemmed from. Most people are afraid of the unknown and once it becomes known, enlightenment occurs and the fear vanishes.
Psychic Vampire Studies
Joe H. Slate author of Psychic Vampires: Protection from Energy Predators and Parasites study investigating the human energy system. Here is an excerpt from the book: “The year-long study, which was funded by the U.S. Army Missile Research and Development Command, identified several important characteristics of that system. Of particular interest was the finding that the physical body’s central energizing core and its surrounding energy field, commonly called the aura, are each influenced by the presence of others. Using aura photography along with visual observations of the aura, the study found that the auras of couples whose interactions were positive tended to complement and energize each other, with each aura becoming brighter and more expansive. Conversely, negative interactions tended to constrict the aura and actually induce a state of mental and physical fatigue. When constrictions occurred in the aura, intellectual functions became slower, short-term memory declined, and physical strength decreased by as much as 50 percent.”
”A later study funded by the Parapsychology Foundation of New York not only confirmed the findings of our earlier research, it showed that certain persons were highly skilled at deliberately tapping into and directly feeding upon the aura of others. By draining energy from another person’s aura, these so-called psychic vampires not only deplete the aura’s energy resources, they interrupt the capacity of the aura’s central core to generate new energy, particularly when the interaction is prolonged. Consistent with our earlier findings, direct observations of the aura as well as aura photographs taken before and after a psychic vampire interaction showed the victim’s aura becoming severely de-energized and constricted following an attack while the vampire’s aura became energized and expansive.”
What you can do if you encounter a psychic vampire or think you may be one:
If you suspect you are a giver – you must become clear you play a role in the experience and you are no longer willing to do so. Say firmly and clearly aloud, “No one else can have my energy. My need to give is fulfilled through healthy means.” You can visualize yourself doing service work or another healthy form of giving. Take time to get quiet or to meditate and ask to see any unhealthy ties connecting you to another that are affecting you then. Visualize severing those ties in whatever way comes to you. It helps if you know the person you are severing from, but it is not essential. Do this clearing, affirming, meditating and severing until you feel you mean it and it is complete. Relief and new energy will follow within a few days. Bless and forgive everyone involved, including yourself.
If you are a taker you must become clear you are no longer willing to play that role. Say firmly and clearly aloud, ” I now receive all the energy I need in healthy ways. Energy comes to me easily from the earth, from the air, from Divine intelligence. It is everywhere and I willingly accept it from healthy places and in healthy ways. I always have all the energy I need.”
Whether you are a giver or a taker, you will likely need to practice this over time. You will learn to recognize physical sensations that go along with someone connecting to you. For me it is light headedness and dizziness or an immediate complete energy drain. For you it may be different. Pay attention. Your body will tell you and you can always ask for clear signs when it is occurring. Both the giver and taker are simply trying to have their needs met. Both are seeking balance. Both have complete control over the situation through managing their own attitudes lovingly.
