Energy vampires

Energy vampires are people who suck the positive energy from your being, whether they do so consciously or not. They can be friends, family, or even people you have just met. Energy vampires tend to focus on people who are easily suggestible, have low self-esteem, and wish to drain their victim of all positive energy. Most energy vampires are unhappy themselves, and in some cases, their subconscious is at fault.  The energy vampire, themselves, can’t control the energy they create or take away.

Victims of energy vampires see improvements the second they have detached from the vampire, when they have left the room or cut them off them off completely. Energy vampires usually use fear as the gateway into stealing your positive energy, but if you protect yourself from these types of people with spiritual techniques, they can’t take advantage of you.

My girlfriend had an event at her church called the “Soup and Sandwich Luncheon,” which by the title, you can guess what it entailed. On our way there, we both had a bad feeling about what was to occur, seeing as she left her church two years ago after attending for 16 years, having been done with dealing with a fire and brimstone type of environment. However, her parents wanted to see her and we felt obligated to go.

The second we walked into the building, people my girlfriend use to call friends all turned and stared at us, going as far as rolling their eyes at our presence. I immediately felt this heavy weight on my chest and my stomach began to hurt. My girlfriend started to cry because of the way they treated her, judging and whispering as if we couldn’t hear them.

After the initial feelings we experienced, we got our food and sat down next to her parents, unfortunately, leaving me to sit at the energy vampire’s table. They didn’t speak to me and I didn’t speak to them, but I could feel their eyes on me, trying to intimidate me and make me feel embarrassed or unwelcomed. I tried my best to ignore them and listen to a different conversation.

Later on, after the energy vampires had left, I felt very tired, as if I had just worked an eight hour shift, or took a six hour road trip. I couldn’t explain the way I was feeling without connecting the dots to the energy vampires. I had never believed in a concept so much until I encountered those people. I felt so sick and tired, and those feeling came out of nowhere. It had to be the energy vampires, and I truly hope I never have to go back to that church.

After leaving the church and driving around in an attempt to calm myself down, I began to feel a bit better. I didn’t feel as tired and my stomach stopped hurting. I knew it was because I had put enough time and distance between myself and the energy vampires. I know now that if I ever have to go back there, I need to protect myself and learn to fight off their soul-sucking energy. Energy vampires don’t have to steal your happiness away. All you have to do is learn how to protect yourself, or simply, refuse to allow those people into your life. It’s your choice.
