We have all had an experience with a person who drains us, takes our energy and just plain leaves us depleted. I hear about it many times while I am conducting goddess classes, my meditation groups and even with my friends. These energy drainers are usually very attractive and charming people when you first meet them.
As time goes they start taking your energy and you find yourself tired and depressed. There are some things you can do to protect yourself from these people. I often suggest these ideas while I am doing readings. I always start with trying to bring the vibration of these people up. Love, smiles and hugs can sometimes turn things around.
If that doesn’t work, you must start to set boundaries for them. First I start with verbal boundaries, for instance just saying, “you can’t treat me this way”. For self preservation, a daily meditation to keep yourself grounded and calm is a great practice. I also give myself a protective bubble or shield when I finish my meditation.
I visualize it surrounding my entire being, even imagining that other peoples energies bounce off of my bubble. The power of prayer and positive thinking can change the world around us. I love essential oils and use them to aid in protection against others energies. I love lavender, vetiver and geranium, all seem to bolster my defenses against the energy vampire. As a last resort sometimes we have to distance our self or walk away from the person. Just remember always be kind, honest and use your best communication skills.
Try an affirmation every morning just to set the day up: “Today I will be strong, present and will retain my positive energy”
