I decided to write about what I experienced when I started to develop my psychic abilities. A lot happened but I am picking just a handful of items to address at this time and will be broken up into three entries.
This is information that I have found to help me on my spiritual path. I do not claim any of this information to be my own techniques or lessons. I have given you a reference of books in order for you to read and make a decision for yourself. I am not claiming that this applies to every person or situation. Please read with an open heart and willing to find an answer on your own through the power of your own experience.
Psychic Vampires, energy drainers, and needy people, oh my!
Geez. Where to start with this one.
Have you ever had a meeting with someone and after the talk you felt drained and tired?
Did they take more from the conversation than just sound advice?
Do you ever avoid a certain person because you do not want to spend hours talking about how awful their life is?
Did you answer yes to any of the questions?
This leads me to the next question.
Are there psychic vampires?
Well, there is a certain breed of people that have the ability to suck energy from their surroundings. I have found that a majority of them are people who do not know that they are light workers and try to subdue their psychic abilities with other means (drugs, sex, food, and such). Could you call them addicts? Maybe. They are just people with a different set of psychic skills. Rather than give energy to others to heal and protect, they pull from the energy around them to give them a sense of protection and natural high. You will usually find this from people who are needy in nature, wanting attention (bad or good), who have developed a certain behavior that gets them what they want, which is to be noticed.
How did I handle this sort of person?
I usually had to protect myself from them (keeping a distance, advising them on how to dim that part of their ability, or setting up sacred space before interacting with them) and also take care of myself afterwards by shaking off the excess energy or grounding and centering.
Can they be needy?
They will suck the life right out of you if you let them. The real lesson to remember here is compassion. Compassion for the path they are choosing to walk. They are not ready or willing to spiritually grow but are willing to use their abilities to their advantage.
I had to really turn to my healing abilities of Reiki and Chakra healing.
I had to close myself off from their energy sucking ability or reflect so much energy to them that they would spiritually exhaust their self out. Most of the time they would not want to be around me because I would eventually be too much energy for them or not enough. They will go where the power is. It is in their nature.
I am not stating that they are bad or anything. They simply are not ready to move forward with their wonderful spiritual gifts and in turn you are not ready to supply them with the energy needed to transform and propel them in the right direction. Well, at least not yet.
Until next time.
P.S. Here is where I learned the "Grounding and Centering" technique by Mya Om
