Do you often feel tired and bored? Does life seem to require way more energy than you can muster? Do sometimes feel that you need the energy of others to survive? Do you feel like part of you is lurking in the shadows, waiting for the opportunity to feast on people’s attention? Then, hello, Vampire!
The Vampire is a predator who can’t function without the psychic fuel that he or she takes from others. This type is usually well put-together and in all superficial ways, seems like a perfectly attractive individual. But wait until the fangs come out! That’s when you’ll see the Vampire’s true colors as your own emotional color pales.
Vampires use many methods to restore their powers and drain yours. Some are passive-aggressive, exhausting you with mental games. Others are paranoid and territorial, requiring constant attention and becoming angry if you can’t give it. Some are hypochondriacs and others are perfectionists who have no inner life and depend on you to give life meaning.
- Seductive and controlling
- Can psychically suck you dry, and you won’t even know what hit you!
- Take, take, take and never give
- Act weak or hurt, then prey on your sympathy
- Endless pits of need
A Happy Vampire
Just as the Vampires in movies get bored because they are immortal and have seen it all, energy Vampires are not good at entertaining themselves, or finding life interesting. So when fresh blood comes into the picture, they become more alert and alive. Their predatory instincts kick in and they become energized by the idea that they could soon be sinking their teeth into a new victim.
While fictional Vampires are often charismatic and interesting, in real-life energy, Vampires are not. They are so weak and draining to all around them that they are repellent. Because of this their circles of influence are small. They are not famous; rather, they are sneaky and elusive.
Vampires are happy to drain anyone with a fresh supply of energy and will attack unguarded souls of all types. They are especially seductive to trusting and caring people like the Angel and Lover. The Victim and Codependent will fall for the Vampire’s tricks every time.
Vampire in Love
The partners of Vampires are easy to spot. They look rather miserable. If you suspect that the person you love might be a Vampire there is an easy way to tell. Do you have more energy when you are away from this person than you have when you are near them? Do you feel drained around this person? Relationships regularly shift energetically, but if your relationship regularly leaves you tired and worn out, then you might be a Vampire’s victim.
You know how Vampires can’t see themselves in mirrors? Energy Vampires are the same in a way because they just can’t see themselves objectively. They are oblivious to the fact that they are draining people. Energy Vampires are simply trying to fill the gaping void of their souls and have no idea how to generate their own power in order to do so.
How to Play It
If you recognize Vampiric tendencies in someone you know, it doesn’t mean you have to keep this person out of your life forever. It’s not so difficult to live happily amongst Vampires if remain protected and on guard. Set personal limits and enforce them. Know what you will and won’t do.
And when you feel someone is emotionally leaning on you, walk away. Leave them to figure out how to balance without you. Imagine bubble of white light around you. This is your psychic shield that blocks negativity and wards off parasites, letting in only positive forces.
