I’ve been involved with a few of the “empath” Facebook groups here and there and I’m seeing a common theme: empaths are not willing to take action to stop energy vampires from zapping their energy.
It breaks my heart to read about all of the problems empaths are having with energy vampires but there's not a single thing I've read that promotes taking any type of action.
That's where I come in.
If there’s an empath problem, there’s a solution. And I'm here to give solutions. But it all starts with YOU. You must take some type of action to get to a place where you can stand in your own power and learn to STOP letting energy vampires feed on your life force. Yep - your energy. Whether it’s the controller, the victim, the narcissist, the space invader, or any type of energy vampire.
The solution I'm about to offer you is NOT exciting. It might even seem like the silliest way to deal with energy vampires but hear me out…...
We're diving deep and discussing what types of energy vampires can slowly drain the energy out of our daily energy “bank account” I thought I’d give you a sneak peek.
Last week, I talked about the Space Invader Energy Vampire. If you missed it, I also created a blog post about it here:
Here's an interesting type of energy vampire that I think everyone has in common. The Victim. Yes - I know, we’ve all unintentionally settled into the victim mentality every now and then but we don’t want to live there.
I’m talking about the type of Energy Vampire Victim who is living in their “victimhood”.
As empaths, these energy vampires can really drain our energy and leave us feeling like we've absorbed all of their problems. We walk away feeling heavy, frustrated, and wondering what just happened to make us feel...
If you're an empath, you might have been told you're "too emotional'. Not to worry. You're just naturally healing. Your body knows exactly what to do.
Tears help protect our eyes by removing irritants, reducing stress hormones, and tears contain antibodies that naturally protect our eyes.
They allow your eyes to clear out irritants, protect our eyes from infection, and are a part of the body’s department of defense.
After crying, our breathing and heart rate decrease, and we enter into a calmer biological and emotional state.
Emotional tears contain stress hormones. They shed hormones and toxins that build up during stress. Crying also stimulates the production of endorphins, our body’s natural pain killer and “feel-good” hormones.
Crying is also essential to resolve grief when waves of tears periodically come over us...
But, we keep on working. We all have todo lists, priorities, projects, and commitments. We keep working, thinking that we can dig ourselves out of this chaos by more work.
Why do we do this?
Society says, “tough it out”. Society rewards this behavior.
We celebrate overachievers who ignore their body signals.
This is incredibly harmful to HSP and Empaths.
We need ample downtime, quiet, and rest to thrive.
Fatigue is your voice of wisdom. It’s your body and your energy level telling you something. This is called listening to your body!
Take one compassionate action (baby step) for yourself.
