We’ve all felt it before- that draining feeling being around certain people.
Not only do you feel drained, but you instantly feel moody, angry and upset out of nowhere! There is a name for people like this- Energy Vampires!
The above is a funny joke but Energy Vampires are a real issue.
And they don’t just come around at Halloween. They always suck the life out of you leaving you paralyzed in their wake. You don’t even have to be in their physical presence to get bitten or as I say, ‘energetically slimed!’
It can happen over the phone, over text, in your social media feed or even just thinking about them can leave you feeling depleted and edgy.
In today’s Energy Healing Toolkit, I give you tangible action steps to get ‘unslimed’ and take your power back from the Energy Vampires!
In private sessions, we delve deeper into your energy, goals and needs.
Thanks for taking this journey with me.

Preventing & Clearing Yourself From Unwanted Energy
1) Protect Yourself: If you have a known energy vampire in your life, you need to be prepared! When dealing with them, you need to put yourself in a protective, white bubble of light or imagine yourself wearing an impenetrable cloak of protection. Spend a few minutes visualizing this before the interaction. I also always wear crystals of protection such as black tourmaline and selenite.
2) Clean Up Your Social Media: Sometimes I feel energetically ‘slimed’ after seeing energy vampires’ posts. I am not talking about a one time rant or rage, but a person is constantly posting negative and depressing posts. Stay friends but unfollow them. Start filling your feed with positive and inspirational people. It is more uplifting and energizing for your energy field to see beautiful images and read inspiring messages.
3) Let It Go To Voicemail: The phone rings and you get sick to your stomach. We have all been there! Let it go to voicemail so you can take a few breaths, shield up and protect yourself. Once you are aware of the dynamic with the vampire, you can consciously center yourself to be prepared when you call them back.
4) Essential Oils: If you feel like you have picked up some negative energy, you can clear it easily with essential oils. Put a drop of the essential oil in the palm of your hand, and then rub your hands together and pass them through your aura. Good clearing oils are eucalyptus, juniper, frankincense, lavender, clary sage or cedar.
5) Burn Sage or Incense: Clear your space of negativity after the person has left by burning white sage or cedarwood incense. Put the sage in a fireproof container. Light it with matches and and blow out the flame. Waft the smoke around your space. Traditionally, this is done with a feather but a postcard works fine. Open all of the windows to usher in the fresh air. If you are burning incense, make sure you burn it in a fireproof container as well. If it is not possible to burn sage or incense, there are sprays that contain the essence of sage that purify the energy of the room.
As you can see, there are easy ways to not be a victim to the energy vampires. It just takes a little preparation to not get bitten. If you do fall prey, there are easy remedies to restore yourself back to feeling in balance.
