The Two Faces of Energy Vampires in Your Relationship
What are energy vampires and how to spot them
You probably know someone who drains you with their negative attitude or unhelpful behaviour.
They’re called energy vampires because they suck the life out of you without even trying. These people seem to pop up in your life at the most unfortunate times. You probably don’t even know why, but these people seem intent on making your life more difficult than it needs to be.
If you find that there are some people who tend to bring you down rather than lift you up, then this article is for you.
They might be very charismatic, this is why it is easy to fall into their trap. Here, we will look at how to protect yourself from energy vampires in your everyday life so that they don’t ruin your day again.
The two faces of toxic people in intimate relationships
Toxic people, especially if you’re involved with one in a romantic relationship, have two sides. One face is attractive, charming, sexy, and alluring, making it simple to be caught. The other aspect is that they consume energy by not listening to people, becoming angry quickly, wanting to be correct at all costs, and demanding a lot of attention.
If you find yourself in a relationship with someone who has these qualities, you might want to consider whether this is the right person for you.
When empathetic and narcissistic partners become enraptured, it is often difficult to extricate oneself from the relationship.
The good news is that there are some things you can do to protect yourself from toxic people.
- Keep your distance.
The best way to protect yourself from an energy vampire is to keep your distance. If someone is constantly draining your energy, it’s best to limit your interactions with them. You don’t need to cut them out of your life completely, but try to spend less time around them. This will help you feel better and give you more energy to focus on other things.
- Set boundaries.
If you can’t or don’t want to keep your distance, then you need to set some boundaries. Let the person know what they can and can’t do around you. For example, you might tell them that they can’t interrupt you when you’re talking or that they need to respect your personal space. Setting boundaries will help the person know what is and isn’t acceptable.
“People inspire you or drain you, pick them wisely”.
Why boundaries are healthy for you
When you’re around a toxic person it is easy to get sucked into their drama. The best way to avoid this is to set boundaries.
They will push your buttons and try to get you to react, so you need to stay calm and collected.
One of the best things you can do is to not engage with them and avoid their drama as much as possible. If you feel like they’re trying to get a reaction out of you, you should walk away.
Very often, you might feel bad for them, but you also need to remember that you don’t owe them anything. If they’re constantly trying to get something out of you or they’re upset about something, don’t let them use you as their outlet. You don’t need to be the person who fixes their problems.
Why energy work help to detox yourself from their toxic magnetism
Many people have found success with energy work and energy clearing techniques. If you’re dealing with a toxic person, there may be negative energy coming from them and entering into your energy field. You can use clearing techniques to block the energy from the toxic person and cleanse yourself of their negative energy.
Some of the best clearing techniques to use while being around toxic people include:
– Grounding and walking barefoot in nature, preferably near the seashore.
– This is a great way to protect yourself from negative energy.
– Visualizing a shield around you.This is a great way to block negative energy.
– Meditation, walking meditation works very well.Highly effective at cleaning and clearing your energy field.
– Shadow work
– Cleansing tools coupled with energy tools- You can use crystals, pentagrams, and candles to clear your energy field.
In my programs I have lots of tools that can help you with this and on how to behave with these people.
–Work on your fears with my workbook and limiting beliefs such as:
-I am not good enough.
– I am not worthy of love and respect.
– I am not capable of achieving my goals.
– I am not worthy of happiness.
– I’m afraid to set boundaries, I might lose the people I love
-Crumbs are better than nothing
The list of beliefs is endless, the work I do with my clients, that sets me apart is that I connect heart to heart with them and I receive the root belief that holds the whole relationship pattern “alive”.
Take care of yourself
One of the best ways to protect yourself from the negativity of a toxic person is to take care of yourself. Here are a few ways you can do this:
Eat well: A healthy diet can help you maintain energy and feel good. Avoid junk food and sugar because that can drag you down and make you feel tired.
– Exercise: Exercise helps you clear your mind and can help you avoid getting sucked into toxic people’s drama.
– Sleep enough: Getting enough sleep can help you clear your mind and refresh your energy.
Energy vampires are people who drain your energy. You can protect yourself from them by setting boundaries, avoiding drama, and taking care of yourself. You can also use energy work techniques such as grounding, visualizing a shield around you, and meditation to clear your energy from their negative energy.
When you avoid the drama of toxic people and take care of yourself, you’ll be much better equipped to deal with them and their negative energy.
