Energy Vampires – Real or Imagined??
Can your energy be sucked or stolen???
I was reading a book about how to awaken your creative energy, and in it was a chapter called “The Vampire Test”, which was a warning about who to let into or out of your life, based on how much they suck your energy and leave you feeling exhausted.
In this book the author recounted a story of Picasso, the famous artist, who was well known as an “energy vampire”, sucking his visitors dry of their creative energy and then staying up all night in a creative burst of inspiration.
So I jumped on a live chat to talk about it because it got me thinking about whether that’s fact or fiction?… (it’s really me in this pic underneath this rather scary looking get up… If you’re a Game of Thrones fan you’ll know who this character is. If not, let me explain – this guy is the ‘King of the Night’. He wants to take over the mythical world of the 7 Kingdoms and eliminate all living beings. Not really a vampire, more like our modern day energy sucker. Great series, by the way.)
Because when I thought about it, there have been times in my life I’ve experienced people who appear to drain my energy. Have you?
But is the only answer to run them out of our lives? And is it really true they can drain us? What if it’s a family member?
In this video, I explore the possibility of energy theft and offer you another explanation… and a very important understanding of what is happening when you interact with those ‘vampires’ and what you can do about it.
If you are a coach or practitioner who works closely with clients, or you have a job that seems to drain, you this short video is essential viewing.
