Energy, Empaths and Vampires: Empaths tend to be more sensitive to energetic states than the average person. We can all be affected by energy vampires–those who cruise looking for energy–but empaths because of their innate sensitivity are even more vulnerable.
Energy, Empaths and Vampires: the Boundary Connection
A major issue to be considered when we are looking at the issue of energy drains is our own boundaries. Vampires may cruise and look for energy, but there has to be an entry point for them to hook and deplete us. We all have life experience that have impacted our energy fields and left us vulnerable. By looking at some of the circumstances or feelings we typically have we can begin to identify how we have been at risk for energy drains
Do you find that you
Have a strong sensitivity to others’ feelings, moods, needs, or problems to the point of being overwhelmed by them?
Are prone to excessive giving or people pleasing behavior?
Have negative moods that overtake you but don’t seem to originate with you?
Experience fatigue, exhaustion, anger, or resentment resulting from care taking where all energy goes out and nothing comes back?
Often feel depression or feelings of heaviness or burden that are not really about you or your life?
Often feel generalized anxiety, feelings of being edge, or a need to guard against danger for no real apparent reason?
Signs that your energy has been compromised…
Situations that show recurring patterns of negativity or lack of success—this can show up with finances, relationships, or working conditions.
Weak boundaries allow our energy to drain away with the result that we do not have the available energy to bring to these areas of our lives.
Unresolved emotions from our past can result in energy leakage or leave openings for others to drain our energy away.
The good news/bad news that is our energy supply is our responsibility and we are the only ones who can heal and repair what is necessary to have our lives be nourishing and supportive for us.
