There are people among us who, on occasion and effortlessly, seem to suck the life out of us. You know them because they leave you feeling drained. These people are referred to as Energy Vampires.
They may be people you love, work with or are close to. They may not even be aware that they are zapping you of your energy, and they don’t necessarily mean to do it; all they know is that you offer them something in the way of good feelings, positivity and strength that they desire. So, when they are around you, they garner these feelings from you for themselves.
To maintain your own personal energy, you must be aware of the effects of these people and take steps to protect yourself. First, if possible, limit the amount of time and contact you have with them. This may be easier said than done depending on your relationship with them. Next, when you see them approaching or you know you will be in their company, visualize yourself inside a protective bubble or held in the protective essence of a white light. Invoke a thought or say this prayer, “I am protected from all harm and only good will come to me”. This will shield your heart space and protect your personal energy from being zapped. And third, send love to them. Send it in the form of a silent wish, a heartfelt glance or a simple human touch. This will provide them with the positive and loving energy they seek, and they may not feel as compelled to suck it out of you.
Protect yourself, prepare yourself and give freely, and the Energy Vampires will remain powerless over you.
Now, that’s Powerful!
