What Is An Energy Vampire?

 An Energy Vampire is a person who feeds off the energy of other people, most of the time they aren’t consciously aware they’re doing it either. These people often don’t have their own spiritual source of connection, so they siphon energy off those around them.

They are often described as a narcissist, drama queen, or a victim. They often believe they are helpless, and they have no interest in self-growth.


They’ll do anything to get your attention, which is why they create drama.

Vampires seek to get an emotional reaction out of you because your attention is the primary way they “feed” on your energy.

Needless to say, they can be enormously draining to be around. If you suspect you might be living with an Energy Vampire, take note of the way you feel after interacting with this person and ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do your eyelids get heavy, like you’re ready for a nap?
  • Does your mood plummet?
  • Do you have an urge to binge on carbs or comfort food?
  • Do you feel put down or like the rug was pulled out from under you?
  • Do you notice that whenever you interact with the person, they seem to feel better and more energized, but you always feel worse?

If you answered yes to two or more of the above, you could be living with a Vampire. But don’t worry, I’m here to give you some magickal and practical tools for protecting your precious energy…

1. Stop Giving Them Attention

They get their energy from your attention. When you stop giving Vampires your attention, you take away their ability to feed on your energy. Stop listening to their drama, stop trying to heal them, and stop interacting with them more than is absolutely necessary.

2. Use Salt to Cleanse and Protect

Living in the same space as a Vampire will leave a murky residue in your energy. Take a soothing bath with Epsom or Sea Salt to cleanse your energy field. Salt also cleanses negative energy in your home, so sprinkle a little Salt in the corner of each room in your home.

3. Become Boring to Them

Energy Vampires are attracted to your vital energy, so disguise your energy around them. Do this by visualizing your energy field as a boring grey color when they are near you. Imagine that suddenly a shied of hard, impenetrable grey rock is around your energy field. A Vampire will sense that your energy is no longer vibrant and open, and you will become boring to them. They will then begin to seek their source of energy elsewhere.

4. Wear Crystals

Wear protective crystals as necklaces or bracelets. Crystals will help to protect your energy field. Crystals such as black tourmaline, black obsidian, or amethyst are especially great for protection.

5. Keep your Vibration High

Meditate, relax and take time for yourself. Practicing self-care keeps your vibration high. You strengthen your energy when you have a peaceful, high vibrating energy field, making you less susceptible to a Vampire.6. Send Divine Love

The truth is, if you are living with an Energy Vampire, they are usually a family member or a person you love. It is important to know that although you may love them dearly, it is not your job to change them. The healthy way to feel love for them is to send them Divine Love, instead of personal love. You do this by sending them love that is from your higher spiritual source. Give up the need to personally heal them, and ask the God and Goddess that higher love and light take over and protect you at all times.

Living with an Energy Vampire is incredibly challenging. By remembering that you have the power within to protect yourself, you can create a life as healthy, happy and magickal as you are, no matter who you live with!

With so much love,
