“Healers are Spiritual Warriors who have found the courage to defeat the darkness of their souls. Awakening and rising from the depths of their deepest fears, like a Phoenix rising from the ashes. Reborn with a wisdom and strength that creates a light that shines bright enough to help, encourage, and inspire others out of their own darkness.”
— Melanie Koulouris
As you continue to grow and expand your consciousness there will be people who are drawn to your flame like moths. People can become excited with your frequency and level of proficiency in spirit and will seek to siphon your energy from your high vibration to feed their low level toxicity and make them feel as though they can access your frequency. These are psychic vampires and the spiritual community is rampant with these types of people. Most times these energy vipers come in the guise of a person who has a knowledge of spirituality, and they can appear to be kind and tender. To an empath who is sensitive to energies and filled with the love vibration, letting someone such as this into your inner world can be detrimental to your physical health.
Each time you meet new people it's best to be wary of how their energy makes you feel. In order to recognize who these people are you must pay attention to you all the more. Monitor your energy levels when you think of them, when they are near you, and when you converse with them. How do they make you feel? Many times as an empath, we are willing to share our healing energy and can lift another's vibration with just a smile or even tuning into their frequency. We tend to carry a powerful energy signature that can effect change on the etheric plane for the other, thereby increasing their personal aura and energy while lifting them to higher levels consciousness without much effort. They can become addicted to your ability and latch on to your aura without you realizing it, and drain your energy. Sometimes the empath won't realize what has been done to them until they are in a state of confusion, weakened by the psychic attack, and feeling the excessive need to be replenished. These types of people have no desire to reciprocate what you have been giving, because they are incapable of fully escaping the grips of their egos, and uncover the masks to their true self. This alone is what makes them wolves in sheep's clothing, as there is only a one way energy exchange and it's never beneficial to the empath who carries pure crystalline energy from Source.
As an empath we must remember, we are always susceptible to the manipulations of these energy thieves. Most times they are oblivious to their level of deviancy. When an empath dedicates their lives to healing and nurturing souls to recovery, many times there are people who want to keep them locked away for their personal energy source, and use them as their spiritual drug. When the empath tries to flee, the vampire will always make their way back and try to vamp off your life line to heal theirs instead of them tapping into their own. In my personal experience, these people must be cut completely off from your energy field in order for you to properly recover your energy. The best way to do it is to cut the emotional cords, because most times they will make you feel for them. It's difficult at times for us to not care, or to care from a distance, because we are internally programmed to nurture. We instinctively draw people near to us to heal them when they are in pain. These people will always find their way to you, but you must do your due diligence to set up appropriate boundaries. You must do so by creating expectations for the other person before they may enter into your space.
I have had people pretend to be spiritually advanced to take advantage of my abilities and kindness for their personal progression. When you try to let the person know that they are taking your energy and you are not being reciprocated, most times you are met with contempt by that vampire. They don't like to be exposed of their subconscious megalomania. Often times when you expose them to heal the issue they reject you and try to make you feel as though you are insane for being who you are. They won't apologize or even see the error in their ways, as their egos won't allow them to see beyond the veil of their own vanity. They will act as though they were the victim of your imaginations instead of admitting to their behavior or emphatically understanding your perspective. They will excessively deny the role they played in your energy drain. Sometimes these people come in the form of “friends”, relatives, and even romantic love interests. I've been devastatingly hurt and energetically drained to oblivion due to it in the past, and I'm here to warn you all to be on guard against people like this.
They say you will be able to know a person by the fruits they bare. If a person only promotes hate, division, and has a pessimistic and negative disposition, this is a clear sign of a potential energy vampire. We empaths tend to want to heal the wounded, and make them see the rainbow through their storms and help them see the birds eye view to get them out of their funk of disparity. It is our very nature to be the source of light in the world of the dark, and to help those who are blinded by their egoistic sense of perception to awaken them to a world of beauty, love and light. Many people may think they want this glory, and will initially want your help, but you must be careful not to be a helping hand to those that do not want to help themselves. You can provide advice, do distant spiritual healing, give spiritual knowledge and do it until you are blue in the face. However, if that person you are providing it to isn't receptive of what you are giving or you, you must learn to walk away before it's too late. You must learn how to discern and trust your instincts when you see the red flags. Don't be afraid to loose them, because sometimes those you love the most won't help you heal but actually be the cause of your destruction. These people must remain on the outside, and should not be allowed in your inner sanctum. You must learn to love people as they are, and most times from a distance. Protect your energy dear empath. You are precious and a wonderful gift to this world. If you learn to yield your power wisely and fearlessly, you can keep your world full of love and vibrant joy, but only if you learn to say no and expose those who try to come against you to steal it away. Never let them in! Spot them before they take their bite, and banish them away from you as quickly as you can. If you have been the victim of such a spiritual crime, know that you are loved and you are perfect just he way you are. You are not defeated. RISE like the Phoenix, reborn and rejuvenated. Become more powerful than you ever were! I wish you infinite love and cosmic light, dear one.
Peace and Blessings,
