Today I want to talk to you about protecting your energy from those who do not have your best interest at heart (Energy Vampires), they feed off your light to make themselves feel better.
I had an experience over the weekend where I witnessed an energy vampire feeding of an unknowing pure light. The energy vampire would speak to the girl she was “grooming” and she was manipulating her by making her responsible for her well-being. Watching this play out before me reminded me of some recent articles I have read about the Narcissist and the Empath. I always want to intervene when I see this happening to someone I care about.
5 signs You are being taken advantage of by an Energy Vampire.
1: They make you responsible for their emotions, well-being, and happiness
2: They have no respect for your boundaries
3: They constantly talk about their issues, looking to you to fix them. They will ask for advice, but they never follow through.
4: They use guilt tactics to manipulate you, they want you to feel sorry for them.
5: They have a poor me / victim mentality
5 ways to Protect your Energy
1: Use Crystals! Carry them with you, wear them in jewelry, keep them around you. Set them on your desk, your nightstand, the kitchen, etc……. Below are my crystal recommendations to protect your energy.
2: Trust your gut, your intuition! Your intuition is there to protect you, and it never lies. It is your first thought, it’s the thought that you you to reason with, rationalize away.
3: Take a walk in nature and Earth, also referred to as grounding.” this act of Earthing transfers the Earth’s electrons from the ground into our body. This helps to cleanse the system of negative (unwanted energies) that you may have picked up from being around people that do not have your best interest at heart.
4: Sit in an Epsom bath with a piece of Smokey Quartz! Smokey Quartz will infuse the water grounding and protective energies and the Epsom Salt will help to pull any unwanted energies, energies not serving your highest and best.
5: Create a grid for Protection and meditate daily with your grid. I suggest using some of the crystals I mentioned above and whatever else you are intuitively drawn too. Below is an example of grid I made for protection. Don’t forget to program and activate your grid.
I used Black Tourmaline in the Center as my focus stone. This stone is excellent for grounding and protections. I then surrounded the grid with other protection and cleansing crystals such as Selenite, Amethyst, Smokey Quartz, and Labradorite.

Now, I know this is especially hard for the Empath. Empath’s first response is to care for others. Just remember you can help others the best by caring for yourself. Setting boundaries for yourself and your energy is a profound act of self-love! You are not judging the energy vampire, you are simply discerning what energies you will allow in your life.
