Energy Vampires Don’t let them Suck You Dry…Yep! They exist. They are all around us. Energy Vampires you find them at the grocery store, the post office, at work and unfortunately sometimes even at home. They are people that wear their negativity in their sleeves. They can suck us dry of energy leaving us drained, angry and depressed.
Most Energy Vampires dont know that they are causing any harm. They are usually very unhappy people that live their lives dwelling on self pity, complaining, blaming others, and with a very negative outlook. Ok. So you can now identify them, but how do you keep them from sucking the life energy out of you? First thing you have to do is to recognize what is happening. If you are someone that is working on your spiritual awareness, then your intuition is expanding and you are becoming more sensitive to other peoples energy. Your spiritual sensitivity makes you more vulnerable to psychic energy suckers. You must learn to protect yourself. Below are 3 steps that are crucial to keep them at bay.
- Define and Guard Your Space We all live within our own energy field. It is called the Aura. This energy field stays with us our entire life and even after we move on. Your energy field shifts with your moods, your thoughts and your interactions with people, animals, plants, crystals and minerals. Keep your Aura balanced by doing daily exercises that include meditation, relaxation and visualization. These exercises help keep you grounded and in control of your own energy. Being in control of your Energetic Space help you block those that try to suck it away.
- Practice Detachment Detachment doesnt mean that you dont care about others it simply means that you dont have expectations about them. Expectation can best be defined as a set up for disappointment. Whenever we have expectations from others we leave ourselves wide open for hurt, anger and frustration. We then become very vulnerable and so we are easy targets for Energy Vampires. Give up attachment to your expectations and you will save yourself a lot of anguish and hurt.
- Dont Throw Your Energy at Others Just like a plant needs water to survive, people need to constantly share their energy others. The type of energy we should be sharing is love, compassion, kindness and understanding; however, that is not always the case even for some of us in the spiritual path. When we get angry or we allow someone to hurt us, we lose control of our emotions and we start throwing out negative thoughts, words and actions. Losing control of our emotions makes us vulnerable and easy targets to Psychic Energy Sucking.
I recommend you keep a sacred spot in your home where you have constant reminders of your spiritual awareness and your intentions. It helps very much to light candles, incense, use oils to anoint special amulets and practice frequent spiritual bathing of yourself and your surroundings. Follow these simple rules and Energy Vampires will have to go searching elsewhere for their Psychic Sucking. Be Well, Be Safe, and

Everyone seems to be thinking GREEN these days, and I dont’t just mean money. After a harsh winter a green spring is in most people’s mind. Isn’t it perfect that St Patrick’s day with its bright green symbolisms falls right at the beginning of Spring? If you ever have the amazing fortune to visit Ireland you will be struck by a few things The many shades of green in the landscape, the warmth of its people and the mysticism of the place. It’s no wonder that St. Patrick’s day is celebrated worlwide! Everyone wants to be a little Irish on that day. Below is an article, recently published in the Internet by an unknown author, that gives us some info about this beloved Saint. Then read on to find an old Irish blessing and a “Luck of The Irish” spell. Enjoy!
Who Was St. Patrick? Saint Patrick was born Maewyn Succat in Britain in the fourth century. It is widely believed that he died on March 17, around 460 AD. At the age of sixteen he was kidnapped by pirates and sold into slavery in Ireland. After six years as an enslaved prisoner, Patrick escaped. He would later write that the voice of God spoke to him in a dream, telling him it was time to leave. After returning to
Britain he studied to become a priest. After being ordained, he was sent to
Ireland to minister to Christians and convert the Irish. Patrick’s mission in
Ireland lasted for thirty years. Although
North America has the largest celebrations, St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated by people of all backgrounds all around the world. St. Patrick’s Day Symbolism The Shamrock Irish legend has it that St. Patrick used the shamrock leaf to symbolize the Trinity. He used the shamrock’s three leaflets united by a common stalk to help explain the concept of the Trinity.The Blarney Stone Old Irish folklore tells of an old woman that cast a spell on the stone to reward a king who had saved her from drowning. Kissing the stone while under the spell gave the king the ability to speak sweetly and convincingly. Kissing the stone is supposed to bring the kisser the gift of persuasive eloquence (blarney).The word blarney has come to mean clever, flattering, or coaxing talk.Leprechauns A mischievous elf of Irish folklore, the leprechaun takes the appearance of a miniature old man. Leprechauns are solitary creatures and spend their time as shoemakers. It is told the leprechauns are the guardians of treasures hidden by the Danes when they marauded through Ireland. If caught, they can be forced to reveal the hiding place of their treasure.
So, there you have it St. Patrick’s day is a mixture of Catholic and pagan rituals mixed together to celebrate the colorful history of a beloved Saint. Last year I published a spell entitled the Luck of Irish that is still very relevant to attract Luck and Fortune and perhaps help you find that mischevious leprachaun that hides the keys to great treasures.
