Have you found yourself asking for your intuitive self to be removed or disconnected because it’s just too painful? Part of this pain comes from being around people who drain and exhaust your energy. That’s painful!
This world is full of very broken and troubled people who become energy drainers. There’s a lot of regular people out there who are just hurting.
We don’t mind giving energy to someone who is temporarily hurting. However, we are not talking about a matter of giving. This is a matter of energy stealing. Rather than an energy vampire who takes your energy by being unhappy, these are energy Zombies. . . . this type of person eats your energy to the point you cannot think, respond, or even move. And it can happen very quickly. One moment everything seems fine, then the next – you are drained.
Truth is, these people are so empty that they become a hollow shell that cannot feed on enough energy to get full. They always want more. They are intuitively drawn to caring hearts because those are the easiest to feed upon. We are less guarded - rightfully so, because living all guarded up is not what we came here to do. Actually, being all guarded up causes us to miss initial cues of their energy being amiss.
Unfortunately, they are really good at disguise. Like a chameleon, they disguise themselves and sweet people and just need a bit of a helping hand. Once you bite the hook, they reel YOU in. Once reeled in, they feed upon your kindness, good nature, and loving heart. You really don’t want to cut out your loving heart, you just want to be safe from this drain.
So, how to recognize and protect yourself in the future? Notice that their brand of helplessness or neediness has a sharp edge to it. It's not just a matter of doing a kindness for them. You can sense the difference if you look for it. You will feel a sense of needing to back up or feeling uncomfortable in a subtle way. You intuition will really help you avoid difficulty if you let it.
The moment you first notice an energy drain, while you can still think, look away - they eat (consume) your energy through your eyes. How do they do that? They have huge expectations of how you should be or how you should act or what you should do for them. When you don’t measure up to this unnatural expectation, they view you/see you with disdain and judgment. That judgment is felt by your caring heart. That judgment then allows them to absorb energy from you. It may feel like it’s coming out of your guts or your heart-space.
As soon as you notice an energy drain, back up so they cannot get within arm’s length as they are capable of sucking energy right out of your aura. If they are too close to you physically, they suck it right out of your heart space, your solar plexus or your whole energy field. Know, too, that their voice and their criticism/victim-speak sucks the energy right out of your heart, body, and energy field even over the phone!
Get away. Get some physical distance. If you have to be around this type of person very long, your awareness and intuition will be your saving grace! You will want to perceive this energy drain before it happens or just as it begins . . . not after you are already depleted.
If you cannot notice it right away, as soon as you recognize this form of energy thief, look away, back away, disengage - excuse yourself to the bathroom and then don't get back to them. They may get mad at you, but far rather they get upset than you get drained. They are only upset because you evaded the trap and now they have to entrap someone else to feed. Once they know they cannot feed on you, they don’t waste any energy in your direction. But use caution! If they think you’ve weakened, they will attempt to reattach!
What's really sad is that they don't even know what they are doing and they feel that everyone else is “so mean” to them and they cannot understand why. If you hear any one start to tell you how mean other people are to them, go on full alert! (Danger, Will Robinson! Use caution or you could become Lost In Space!)
You may think to yourself, well, I cannot be mean to anyone!
Keeping yourself save is not being mean! “Mean” is their judgment of clear energy boundaries – Their judgment of you being mean not the truth. Truth is . . . Letting them feed on YOU is mean, because then they don’t go to Source for their energy . . . by giving them YOUR energy, you are starving them of REAL, SUSTAINABLE energy! You are cheating them out of what really feeds them!
Stand your ground with a clear conscience.
What is also sad is not only do they feed on other's energy, they also download (dump) their dark energy into the one they are feeding upon - much like a mosquito. Receiving that poison will feel itchy and miserable long after the event has happened.
So, how to get clear?
Your awareness of the situation and getting away is your first response.
The second response is put them in pink light or pink bubble. This disrupts their energy barbs from getting to you. They cannot feed without hooking in first. If they've already hooked in, when you walk away, shudder (shake it off) and sweep yourself off with your hands - especially the heart-space. Once you are clear of their attempt to attach, you can release any dark energy they may have downloaded onto/into you. If you can put your hands on a tree or on a wall, this will ground out that dark energy.
The pink bubble connects them with God, who is truly the Source of all they truly need. You can add a prayer to connect the pink bubble to God and envision the pink bubble open at the top connected to Divine Source.
Lastly, here is a way-cool technique for reclaiming your energy and getting clear.
Notice your heart-space. Notice there is a door there. Don’t see it in your imagination? Create one. (See?! Your intuition and imagination are saving graces!) Open the door and notice a thread of light emanating out from your heart-space out away from you. Don’t see it? Imagine it. Once you see that thread of light, say, "All that I Am that I may have given away or had taken away, return to me now!"
You will feel the energy that is truly yours return to you down this thread. It might take a few minutes. Once you’ve received all you can receive for now, this thread of light will stop beaming out of you.
While that door is still open, you can release any downloaded energy. (The door should remain open. If not, re-open it for thus releasing step.) Then say, "All that is not mine be removed fully and completely." You will feel that dark yukky energy (betrayal, anger, frustration, confusion, fear, to name a few) being released or pouring out of you. For me, it’s like a big glob of gunk that spills out onto the ground where it is absorbed deep into the earth. (It feels like my heart-space vomits this dark goo. Sorry for the yukky visual.)
When that release has finished processing, that heart-door will close and vanish. You will feel a lot less drained and more like yourself. Probably more so than in a long time as we allow others to drain us more often than we realize.
There is more to this healing process, but this is the quick version and it works really well!!! I’ve been known to do this process every morning and every night.
Caring for someone doesn’t drain us. Acting out of love doesn’t drain us energetically. Yes, we might be physically tired, yet that unspeakable energy drain doesn’t happen when we act through a loving heart. Our intuition and our imagination work hand in hand to protect us and to help us clear. Now you can interact with your world on a higher level of vibration and feel safer doing so.
