Navigating Energy Drains with Spiritual Protection

by Jean

As we walk through this life, as much as we try to shine and show love, try to heal, and be there, we are going to encounter various energies. Some will be uplifting and joyful, while others will drain you, almost like they are sucking your soul out of you. While it’s tempting to ignore these draining forces, hoping that not acknowledging them will shield us from their effects, it’s crucial to understand and address these dynamics to preserve our light and well-being.

Let’s first start by recognizing the shadows and take a detailed look at the different types of “Energy Vampires”

The Complainer:

These individuals are always dissatisfied with life and tend to put too much focus on the negatives of life. They are in a constant grievance mode about their circumstances and interactions feel more like emotional burdens. The key to recognizing when someone habitually views the world from a lens of negativity is to guard against adopting this outlook.

The Manipulator:

Oh, boy! More often than not, you can recognize these lost souls as they use emotional intelligence for their own selfish purposes by creating a sense of obligation or guilt and they will draw you into their emotional drama. The manipulator crisis is often self-created and serves to engage and entangle others energetically. The best way to protect yourself against the manipulator is to recognize the patterns and make a clear decision to disengage from their emotional rollercoaster.

The Martyr:

Everyone knows that one person who is always playing the victim, They seek attention and even energy by manipulating others through guilt. They have endless stories of how they’ve been wronged in life and expect others to rescue them or feel sorry for them. They suck you into their pity party and you being an empath or a lightworker, are drawn to make them feel better, to help heal them. This is why you must set emotional and even conversational boundaries.

The Dominator:

These are individuals who assert their power through covert means to control and dominate others. This includes speaking over others, taking control of a conversation, making unilateral decisions, or just using their physical presence to intimidate others. They drain energy by creating an environment of suppression. They like to shine like a star, be in the limelight, and be the center of attention. You can protect yourself by strengthening your assertiveness and refusing to be overshadowed or controlled.

Signs that you are being drained

Feeling drained can manifest in various forms:

Physical Symptoms:
You’re unusually tired, and may even have headaches, or a decrease in physical energy after interacting with these negative vibrations.
Emotional Symptoms:
You become irritable, have a drop in mood, or even feel a deep sadness out of the blue following certain encounters.
Cognitive Symptoms:
You may find yourself being forgetful, having difficulty concentrating, foggy brain, or even a sense of confusion after spending time with particular people.

Protective Strategies

Setting Boundaries:

I know this is a difficult one for most, but it’s important to learn how to set boundaries… Firmly define what you are willing to tolerate and what you are not willing to put up with. This might mean physically removing yourself from a draining situation or limiting the amount of time and depth of your interactions with certain individuals.

Grounding Practices:

Meditations, yoga, Tia Chi, spending time in nature, or just walking barefoot with Mother Nature can help you reconnect with your own energy and even disperse any negative energy you may have picked up.

Visualization Techniques:

Do you remember when you were a kid, blowing bubbles and watching them float with the beautiful prism of colors? This is very similar to where you visualize yourself being wrapped in the center of a bubble, especially when you are in a situation that makes you feel vulnerable and uneasy. This mental barrier can help shield you from external energies like a force field around a spaceship in the movies. There are also a few mirror visualization tricks I can guide you through.

Maintaining your light

Cleansing Rituals:
Regularly engage yourself in the practice of clearing your energy field. You can do this by burning sage, showering, and visualizing that you are washing all the yucky away and see it going down the drain, sweeping off your aura from all the dust particles, or even participating in sound healing sessions or listening to frequency music in 528 or 417 Hz that can be found online.
Affirmations:
You can reinforce your personal boundaries and positive self-regard with daily affirmations claiming that you are grounded and in control of your energy. Just like declaring your day, you can declare your energy field. This is your space, so claim it and stand firm!
Positive Associations:
Cultivate encouraging relationships with those who support you, make you feel happy, and energize you. Spend more time in environments that give you peace of mind, uplift your spirit, and enhance your well-being.

Seeking professional help

If the burden becomes overwhelming, seeking help from professionals familiar with spiritual and energy healing can be invaluable. Whether it’s a Reiki practitioner, a shamanic healer, or a therapist specialized in spiritual counseling, these experts can offer strategies to effectively cleanse and safeguard your energy field.
Remember, you are a luminous being of love. Your light is designed to shine brightly, even through the darkest storms. To continue guiding and healing others, you must first prioritize your own spiritual health and energy.
