What The Book Talks About
When we dim our light to make others feel more comfortable, the whole world gets darker.
Remember that Darkness feeds on your fear and anger, so stop feeding it.
To heal our past, we must first become aware of how Darkness works. Shining a light on it is the first step. And then forgiving ourselves and being unconditionally loving—and also changing our behavior, if necessary—is the next step to clean up the legacy for good.
Every morning before you get out of bed, say the following: “I expand in abundance, success, and love every day as I inspire those around me to do the same.
I pledge allegiance to myself and to my Soul for which I stand. I honor my goodness, my gifts, and my talents. I commit to remaining loyal to myself from this moment forward for all of my days.
One of the best ways to minimize your interaction with energy vampires is to become “empowered in the negative.” In other words, learn how to turn people down, even if you have to hurt them a bit in the process. This is essential. Be like those old drug commercials: Just Say No.
Boys who have been shamed tend to act out, while girls turn their shame inward, often creating depression, eating disorders, or perfectionism.
Dr. Mario Martinez teaches that love is toxic to a toxic person. And that there are only so many milligrams of love that a toxic person can take before they become mean or nasty.
Once you face down your fears of saying no, you’ll be much better able to stick to situations that don’t drain you.
Do not make the mistake of thinking that you can defend yourself against this. You can’t. Just walk away. Don’t try to make your case. At the end of the day, you will be judged by your behavior—not your words. Walking away is very powerful.
You must first feel as bad as you’re feeling and move your emotions of anger and hurt out of your body. You do this by feeling them fully and expressing them in a safe way.
Tami Lynn Kent added mantras to each of the five A’s to make them even more powerful: Attention: I see you Appreciation: I value you Approval: I accept you Affection: I love you Allowing: I trust you I suggest that you say these each morning out loud to yourself while looking right into your eyes in the mirror.
You’ll feel an energy shift by day 20—or even earlier. And in the future, you can judge the value of your relationships by whether or not these five A’s are present or absent.
Here’s the deal. When another individual is completely disconnected from their well-being and their joy, this has absolutely nothing to do with you on any level.
You didn’t attract this. You are not responsible for it. The only thing you are responsible for is your own energy field. And when you learn how to pay attention to that—and only that—you’re free.
Lets now look at how you can identify energy vampires.
1) Negative people!
Negative people are very easily spotted. Especially since they tend to pride themselves on the fact that they think this way. They are negative thinkers and they complain about everything. They are very powerful in their negative thinking. Even sometimes to the point of being overbearing.
2) People who are depressed, sad, needy, or critical most of the time.
This is similar to number one, however, instead of being overbearing, they have more of a victim undertone. Everyone has felt this way on occasion, and experiencing these emotions from time to time is totally, and completely normal. However, what I am talking about are people who chronically feel this way, with only brief bouts of happiness.
These people are not hard to spot; in fact, you probably can name all of the people you know like this in under a minute.
3) People who are searching to fill a void in their life.
This category of people can be so tricky, they are not negative, depressed, sad or even critical, but they are just lost souls trying to figure things out.
In fact, many times from the outside looking in, they can seem very pleasant. But with a newfound “thirst for knowledge”, also comes a newfound “thirst for energy”, resulting in becoming an energy vampire.
As these people begin to find their way, and find purpose in their life, their sponge will begin to fill up. They will no longer need to be an energy vampire, as they will begin to replenish and recharge their own system.
4) Drama queens.
This is pretty self explanatory, but in case you don’t know what a drama queen is, they tend to like drama, or be very drawn to it. They like to cause, or stir up trouble, and get everyone fighting.
This can become a very addicting type of behavior, because drama queens like the way it “feels” when energy is all stirred up in a chaotic manner. The chaotic energy they feel from the drama, they enjoy! It gives them excitement! What is really happening, however, is this type of person needs to have drama going on to essentially “distract themselves” from feeling unfulfilled in their own life. So they cause, and start a distraction…aka drama.
When you are doing something exciting, rewarding, or fulfilling with your life, you can feel the energy stirring, internally. Positive stirring of energy feels good…it feels exciting! When you are unfulfilled on a soul level, however, you do not feel any energy stirring up inside.
So sometimes people try and figure out how to mimic that feeling. These people many times will mistake “chaotic energy” for the “positive, fulfilling energy” you feel stirring inside when you are doing something rewarding.
This can be a rough one. Angry people, like some of the other “energy vampires” are also very easy to spot. However, these energy vampires are different.
These people can be very, very intense.
When dealing with angry people, they draw energy from you in a totally different manner.
You put your guard up…literally! You put up an energetic shield in order to protect yourself. This is energetic shield is a real thing. When you feel as if you are walking on eggshells and feel like you need to have your guard up, in actuality, your spiritual body will put up an energetic guard or shield.
An energetic shield, will protect your spiritual self, from their intense anger and energy.
You will expend a lot of energy creating this shield out of necessity and protection. Angry people will then draw upon the energy used to create this shield. They will also go on attack.
As to how you can dodge energy vampires you will learn that in this amazing book.
Best Place to Buy The Book
The best place I recommend you buy the book is on Amazon. The price there is fair and according to my research, it is the most trusted online store at the moment. It will also be very convenient for you to buy there if you were planning to do more online shopping today.
I think this book is engaging and accessible. It provides straightforward information, wise insights, immeasurable comfort and overdue validation to empaths, sensitives and intuitives, who are often plagued repeatedly by the “energy vampires” in their lives and wonder why.
