What is a psychic vampire?
Like most supernatural phenomena we often dismiss it as unreal and having no impact over our actual lives, but again like most supernatural phenomena at least one aspect of it has a real and tangible element of existence in our lives.
The term Psychic vampire refers to a person who drains your energy by making you feel tired, sad, or general feeling bad about yourself. The dynamics behind this concept involve a person forcing you to give them something – your sympathy, or your disapproval for example. Consider a person who will keep provoking you until they receive an angry reaction from you. Consider a person who keeps telling you about how bad their life is until you give them a reaction of sympathy or validation.
The Energetic Exchange
Some examples of the energetic exchange working against you are when you find yourself feeling happy and then after encountering a particular person you feel sad or upset for no apparent reason. The energetic sensations we project forward can often come across as surface emotions that some individuals are able to drain from us.
The Energetic Healing Exchange involves raising the energetic field of both the healer and the person being healed. If you just give a person a certain amount of positive energy – then it is still a form a psychic exchange where one person loses their own energy and another gains it.
Here is an analogy:
If you are experiencing a positive emotion and others around catch on to this emotion – this is a form of healing. Healing exchanges are often not exchanges at all – where as psychic vampires feel they need to take the energy, power, and positivity others have to attain the state they want. Envy, greed, lust, and anger, can be major stimulants in provoking a negative psychic energetic exchange.
Psychic exchanges occur on a subconscious level, meaning it is important to be able to observe what others really want from you beneath their surface level impressions.
Does he or she have a hidden agenda to benefit from that will leave you worse off?
Does he or she seek out situations in which you feel act or speak in a certain way that could give rise to justified anger or sadness on their part?
Do you feel generally better while being away from this person?
The 3rd point is often overlooked. Until we really consider how we feel in various situations we cannot determine which areas of our life and which people are causing a drain on us. Once we become aware of what these areas are it allows us to stop acting in this manner. Each one of us has a choice about whether to fall for the trap of negative psychic exchanges, or to avoid engaging with them. Once we avoid engaging the people that want to be in our lives just for this psychic exchange, these psychic vampires tend to move on to other targets that suit their agenda.
