Energy vampires are all around us even if we’ve not yet spotted them. They make a point to drain us in more ways than we tend to realize and the more aware of them we are the more we can work to combat their presence.
Anyone can be an energy vampire and usually the energy vampire is not aware of what he or she is. They without noticing zap the positive energies from your life and leave you feeling out of place and down in the dumps. The more time you spend with them the worse off things become.
If you feel someone close to you is an energy vampire and are unsure of what to do about it, spend some of your time working on the things listed below. While not all of them will be easy, they will all make a difference. Energy vampires are not just going to stop, you have to work to stop them on your own.
7 Ways To Deal With Emotionally Draining Energy Vampires:
1. Make them aware of what they’re doing.
Do not let the energy vampire move forward feeding off of everyone else. Make him or her aware of the issues following them and try to see if they can or will work on it. Sometimes bringing attention to it will force them to find the change they’ve been needing.
2. Distance yourself from them if needed.
If you need to stop spending time with someone because their presence makes you feel down and out, there is nothing wrong with that. You in this world have to do what is best for you and your own family. No one can tell you how to exist.
3. Be willing to put a label on them.
If someone is an energy vampire they need to be given that label. Once you’ve made this connection in your own mind they hold less power over you. This keeps them from being able to absorb so much of you.
4. Spend your time more wisely.
You are the only person who gets to decide how you live your life. Do what you want with your time. Spend your time being positive and making positive changes in your life. If someone or something is holding you back there is nothing wrong with cutting ties.
5. Limit the amount of time you spend with them.
Stop spending so much time with people who bring you down. You do not owe anyone an explanation. You live your life and that is all there is to it.
The more you work with your own emotions the stronger you become. Through this, you can work to protect your energetic field as a whole. This will make it much harder for the energy vampire to do what he or she wants to do.
7. Listen rather than engaging, this allows them to take less.
The more you listen and less you say towards these people the less they can take away from you. Do not give them too much and refuse to allow them to force you into something you’re not interested in. While you can still give advice spend more time allowing them to release versus you releasing in general.
