Everything is energy, and everything we experience in our world is a variation of this energy, perceived as good or bad while we’re experiencing it. There are many people who are unaware of their own energy, that they are indeed energy beings who need it in order to live.

So how do I stop an energy vampire and keep my own energy protected?

First of all, we need to recognize that we are beings who require energy to live! And secondly, we need to understand that (almost) everyone around us is stuck in the game of stealing energy! (Including ourselves.) The majority of human beings have forgotten that they can get their energy from an unlimited source. Once we acknowledge these facts, we can develop the skills necessary to stop these energy vampires and become someone who gets their energy from Our Souce, from All-There-Is.

It’s this connection to All-There-Is that gives us an unlimited source of energy that we could literally move mountains with, but because of our temporary amnesia while on Earth, we forget about our Source and quickly learn how to steal energy from anyone who is willing to give it. Some people become desperate for energy and will stop at nothing in order to get it!

Whether it’s a co-worker complaining about how horrible their day is, or someone who wants to start an argument, there are ways we can protect ourselves, right now! Below I have provided some methods that have worked for me in the past:

  1. Raise your own vibration. When we raise our own vibration we begin to attract people who are vibrating at the same rate. Remember like attracts like. If you don’t like what you’re experiencing in your reality, change it. Taking care of yourself is vital to having good energy – eat a proper diet with lots of fruits and veggies and get proper sleep. Take time for yourself and do the things you enjoy; this can include meditating, reading a book or having a nice warm bubble bath.  Another great way to raise your vibration is by chanting the Sacred Sound “OM”. This can be done internally, or externally and along with one of the many OM tracks on youtube if you like!
  2. Don’t give into them. This will only feed them the energy they need and leave you feeling exhausted. It’s not up to you to fix their problems, and by helping, you teach them subconsciously that you’re a reliable source of energy that they can come back to whenever they need a boost. Give them advice when necessary, but don’t feed their energy addiction.
  3. Stand your ground but don’t react. When you are with someone who wants to argue or fight, become aware of what they’re trying to do. Center yourself and don’t allow them to bring you down to their level. When you don’t give them the reaction they want, they will get bored and move on to something or someone else.
  4.  Cut the cords. If you feel that you’re being drained constantly by someone, even when they’re not around, it’s because there is an energetic cord connecting you to them! Breaking it is as simple as imagining yourself cutting it. Call upon Archangel Michael to assist you if you like! He’s a pro when it comes to cutting cords and protecting you from negative attacks.
  5.  Wear a crystal that will act as a buffer in negative energy situations. There are many to choose from, including rose quartz, amber, amethyst, citrine, and jet – just to name a few.
  6. Shield yourself. A quick and easy method of protecting yourself would be to visualize a shield around you. Our minds are incredibly powerful and when you visualize something like a shield, you’re actually creating one in the astral, invisible plain! It can be any colour you choose but set the intention of it to be one of protection. This will keep your energy protected and keep unwanted energy out. Once again, ask Archangel Michael for assistance if you like!
  7. See the lesson. Always ask yourself ‘what did I learn from this situation?’ If you’re attracting angry or jealous people, chances are you’ve attracted them because you’re acting in a similar way. When you recognize these things in yourself and work through them, these people will no longer be vibrating at the same rate and will move on to someone who is.
  8. Most importantly. Surround yourself with positive and happy people, and be those things yourself!


Please also consider that you too could be an energy vampire! I know that admitting these things aren’t easy, but having awareness is the key to change. If you suffer from low moods or from a lack of energy, you could be draining those who are close to you. When you open up to the possibility that you may be doing this, you can actively begin to change your behaviour. Remember that one happy, joyful soul that you love spending time with and embody their wonderful qualities! When you do this you will attract happy people and others will love to be in your company!
