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…...
Have you ever been around someone who obsessively tried to control and dictate everything they thought you were supposed to be, do, have, and feel?
These energy vampires have an opinion about everything and try to control you by invalidating your emotions especially if those emotions don’t fit into their rulebook.
They often start sentences with “You know what you need?” and then proceed to tell you.
This ends up making you feel stuck, demeaned, and put down.
We’re talking about the type of Energy Vampire called The Controller. This type of energy vampire can chip away at your self-worth and this can lead to depression and other physical symptoms.
Here are a few signs to watch out for:
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...
During the month of October, I'm adding to my Empath Collective library. This is one of the biggest projects I’ve taken on throughout the whole time my Empath Collective has been together.
I’ve been working on this project for several months. It’s on the topic of Energy Vampires.
I’ve been hesitant to cover this topic for a few reasons:
If you think you might have an energy vampire in your life, you’ll definitely want to keep reading and you might even want to join our Empath Collective.
First things first... You've probably noticed that I frequently talk about energy fields. Yes, we all have this energetic border around us that determines our comfort level. This is also known as personal space.
To determine if you're an empath you need to take a quick self-assessment test.
Being an Empath doesn't have to be a curse. I like to think of it as a gift. If you're an empath, don't push this ability to the side. When you push away this divine gift, you run the risk of blocking creativity, isolating, attracting energy vampires, turning to unhealthy substances and habits, harming relationships, and even getting sick.
We'll be using tools like meditation, writing exercises, reiki, grounding yoga sequences and other tools to nudge you in the right direction.
Do you think you might be an empath?
Have you been told you're "too sensitive"? I'd love to know!
