Vampires are real, and garlic won’t keep them away! Energy Vampires are people who drain your energy, but only if you let them. Protecting your own energy will keep vampires from pulling you into the shadows. Vampires do this because they are vibrating at a low frequency, living in a place of lack and projecting their pain onto the people around them. Energy vampirism is truly a form of spiritual illness.

Energy vampires can be fully aware of how they make other people feel, or totally and completely oblivious to their actions. The good news is that energy can transform and a person can move out of living as a vampire.

There are ways to protect your energy and once you know the signs of an energy vampire, you’ll be able to make choices that help you feel good. Read our list of characteristics to help you identify the warning signs of a vampire, or maybe even realize you are one yourself. If you're truly unsure if someone is an energy vampire, there some questions you can ask yourself when in their presence. Do you feel accepted, happy and safe? or do you feel drained, judged and anxious?

Your birth right is to feel love and joy. If you’re being tested by an energy vampire, you have the freedom to say, “no thanks” and walk away. Keep reading for ways to protect your energy and also transform from being an energy vampire into a light being.
