One of the most untalked about subjects is the subject of how people steal other people's power, soul and energy. It is more common then you can understand and it goes beyond the realm of the physical dimension with people and extends into the non-physical dimension with non-physical beings.
People on earth have what is called the soul, or personal power. The soul of humans is something that can be taken or given away or stolen. The act of "soul stealing" is a common phenomenon among people in relationships where one person is a dominating or power taking person.
People also have what is called an energy field or aura. A common problem that most people have is that somewhere in life they became dis-connected to their own personal power or soul and because of this they have become dependent on the energy of other people. The term "Energy vampire", or "Psychic Vampire" is often a misunderstood term, but it is basically a person who lives and feeds off the life force or energy of other people. The "energy vampire" person is actually unable to develop their own energy, and in turn they have to go "outside" of themselves to get energy. The main cause of energy stealing or feeding is a lack of connection to ones own personal power or soul, for if you had a connection to yourself on a deeper level you would have no need to use other people for energy. It is extremely common among humans although only a few people are actually aware of it, in terms of having to protect their own energy from being stolen or used by others. On a deeper level, the act of taking or using someone else's energy is based on having power over another person, and it is a lower level of consciousness that people have chosen to operate under.
A common belief is that energy vampires are negative people or use negativity to drain you, although this is not true. Someone can take your energy just by you speaking to them, listening to them speak, looking at them, or being close to them in terms of space, (like if you were to stand very close to another person). It has nothing to do with being negative, it has to do with a person who is on a lower vibration energetically, and just by dealing with them, your energy is taken.
What is even more interesting is most people who take or use other people's energy, do not know they do it. This is because most people do not understand how energy works, therefore they have no idea they are draining you of your energy. The people who understand how energy works and are also users of other people's energy are what I call "Professional thieves" meaning they actually purposely choose to use other people for energy. I had a friend at one time in my life who told me she would purposely "steal" other people's energy and feed off of other people energetically. I asked her how she did it and she said, "with her mind". She said she would pull people to her intentionally just with her thoughts and by just someone paying attention to her, she could take their energy. I asked: so a person has to be paying attention to you?, and she said yes, by them paying attention to me, they give me their energy. This makes a lot of sense, because whatever people focus on, they tend to give their energy to. I later found myself always tired and drained around this "friend".
Whenever we have a relationship or interaction with another human, the other human we are having the relationship with or interaction will either function on two levels.
The first level is the giver level, this is a person who does not have any type of hidden agenda or desire to control or have power over others. This level is how people should function with one another. This level is what is right and respectful within the universe as the way you are "supposed" to operate as a human being. Within the universe humans are supposed to be beings who "share" their energy with each other, and not take one another's energy and not give back anything in return.
The giver is a person who is connected to the "light" as they say, meaning, this person has a connection to his or her own inner power/soul and has no need to use other people for energy, because they can develop their own energy. This is how you are "supposed" to function as a human being.
-The giver has an energy field (aura) which develops its own energy and in turn gives that energy to others.
The second level is the user/abuser and taker level.
The user is the human who has chosen to dominate, control, have power over, or manipulate one another as a way to compensate for his or her own lack of power, understanding and soul. The user may be completely unaware of his or her actions and functions on "automatic pilot", not really knowing who they are and why they operate the way they do.
Some users understand more then others and actually purposely steal other people's power, energy and soul.
The user tends to associate with other users and givers usually avoid these types of people. The user may be in high profile positions, such as teachers, healers, leaders, etc. The user is more common within the race of humans then the giver. This is due mostly to unhealthy choices and being spiritually dis-connected to ones own power and soul. The user tends to operate under fear, which is due to his or her own lack of power, understanding, and higher consciousness. The user functions at a level at which non-physical beings of a dark nature function at, which is a level of over powering one another, dominating one another, or attempting to control one another.
-The user has an energy field (aura) which is reversed, meaning it does not develop its own energy, but instead it gets its energy from outside of itself, from other people.
As we deal with one another in a social or sexual relationship, we exchange energies completely unseen by the naked eye. When a user operates with another user there is very little power lost or stolen between the two people as they are both users and operating at the same level.
When a user operates with a giver, there is an imbalance of energy exchanges. What this means is the user cannot give or exchange energy because of his or her lack of power, while the giver tends to "give" energy to the other person which is the user. So this imbalance creates a unhealthy relationship between the two people, as one person takes and the other person gives. As the relationship develops the user can actually steal whole parts of power or soul from the other person who is a giver. These parts of power or soul that are stolen from the giver are usually unknown to them because of there lack of understanding of how the soul functions on an energy level in regards to "Soul Loss". As parts of personal power are stolen they create openings or holes in the energy field. Once a person begins to develop holes in his or her energy field they are "energetically vulnerable" meaning they have power missing from them which in turn has caused them to be open energetically to non-physical beings. The attachment of non-physical beings in a persons energy field is what causes a person to develop lower levels of consciousness, energy, and power. The more power a person has stolen from another person, the more power is lost from that person and the more energetically vulnerable that person becomes.
It is important to understand that we are not living in a world that is made of kind and loving beings, although you may believe you are. The darker truth of life is that this world we live in is made mostly of fear based beings, lower level humans, and dark consciousness. For if we lived in a loving world there would be no need to fight, battle, have power over each other, start wars, or hurt one another.
The fact that humans have lived for thousands of years, and have created nothing but sickness, pain and misery within one another is only an example of how humans operate on a deeper level.
Now, I believe there is a time for change. That we must understand what is wrong in order to fix it. That we must choose to understand who we are, and learn to make the choice to not live in fear, or give our power to others, or allow fear and lower level energy into our lives.
Until we understand that there is no more need for fear, or pain or misery we will never change.
To make the choice to become spiritually intelligent is to understand who we really are.
Who we are is not a living breathing human being, but we are much more then that. We are soul beings, trapped in a physical body until we make the choice to leave this world.
So when a person comes to you to steal your power, what are you going to say to them?
No! You cannot steal my power, go get your own energy and power and stop using other people for your own personal benefit. When we make the choice to not allow others to use us, we choose to become self-empowered through our own choices to not allow other people to make us sick.
Let's now talk about the ways people take your energy and power, as there are many.
1. The Eyes, and Your Body Position when speaking to someone.
The eyes are an important tool for transferring energy. The eyes have been called the 'window of the soul' for a reason. We can give and take energy through the eyes. If someone needs you to focus on them, you will need to look at them. When people look at something they are focusing on what they are looking at, giving it energy and attention. Whatever you focus on you give your energy to. Also the body and the position of the body is very important. Standing directly in front of energy vampires is giving them direct access to your heart chakra and center of your being. It is this position of your body which is not beneficial when speaking to people who absorb others energy. So when talking to someone who uses others for their energy try to not make eye contact with them, or face them directly.
People who use others for energy will need you to focus on them and feed them. This is how most energy feeding is done. So what they will do is get you to fight them, argue with them, play their emotional and power stealing games. They will feed off your emotional reaction. They will attempt to get you to "play" their game by reacting. They will feed off the energy fed into the conflict. The easiest (and oldest) way to steal someone's energy and power is to start an argument or conflict with them and feed off their reaction. So when someone starts to begin some sort of conflict with you, you need to examine whether it is worth your energy to "fight back". Some battles are best dealt with by walking away and saying NO.
3. Name Calling, Gossip, Emotional Attacks
People will need to get you to react emotionally and feel hurt to give away your power. People need you to focus your mind on them and what they are manipulating you with. So what better of a way then to call you a name or emotionally attack you in some way? Mostly all power games revolve around making you feel hurt, or embarrassed, or weak, or powerless. So this method involves various acts of demoting your quality of being. Treating you in a way that hurts your emotional self.
4.People Treating You As If You Are Of No Worth or powerless, Power and Domination Games
Another similar tactic is to attempt to treat you like you are of low worth, or someone who lacks a certain skill or quality. The way a "boss" has power over his employees is to treat them like they are beneath him, and if the employees accept his beliefs they give away a certain amount of power. The way parents have power over their children is to keep them held down with limiting beliefs such as "you're not good enough", or "you will never attain that". Limiting beliefs is another way to steal someone's power.
5. Talking Too Much, Asking Redundant or Pointless Questions
A very simple and common way to use others for energy is to ask them pointless questions. You need to get someone to give you their energy, so getting them to talk or listen to you talk nonstop is an effective method. A person will come up and ask "Do you know where the supermarket is", when the supermarket is right across the street or they very well know exactly where it is. Or they will talk, and talk, and talk, about anything, it does not have to be a dumping of negativity, it can just be listening to them speak on end. The more you listen, the more energy you give away, the more they get you to talk, the more energy you give away.
6. Trying To Be The Center Of Attention
Some people when they walk into a room talk extremely loud and attempt to make their presence known. This is a subtle energy feeding method which is designed to draw your attention to them, thereby focusing on them, which gives them energy. People who constantly need to be paid attention to have severe inner issues of needing love and attention from others. This is what little children do when they do not get what they want, they cry and create drama. Don't allow people to come into your life and force you to pay attention to them if they are not deserving of your attention.
7. Dumping Negative or Emotional or Heavy Crap On You
Related to number 4, is dumping heavy or emotional stuff on you. Negativity is very draining, so a person can sit and talk about their problems, and how this is going wrong, and how life is so hard, and on and on and before you know it you are drained, and they walk away feeling uplifted because they just fed off your light by dumping their dark crap on you. Again, having boundaries with people is the lesson.
8. Emotional or Heavy Relationships
An emotional or heavy relationship is draining and some people seek out these types of relationships. Related to number 1, this relationship revolves around drama, pain, heavy emotions, and conflict. Constant arguing is a sure fire way to give away your energy and power. Understand that you could die at any moment and spending your time upset and bent out of shape because of a women or man you are in a relationship with is an extremely unhealthy existence. Avoid drama, or anything emotionally heavy at all costs.
One of the easiest ways to drain someone else is through sex. Sex is not just a physical interaction, it is an energetic and spiritual interaction. The biggest "feeders" I have met used sex as their weapon of choice. Understand that if you are a "giver" of energy like so very few people are and you have sex with a "feeder" you are basically making a choice to give away your life force energy and power for a brief moment of physical pleasure. Now sex is not a bad thing, but if it starts to become draining, then you need to find another person to have that experience with. We did not come to this planet to give our power away to others, we came here to grow as a collective group of beings, and if the beings we are dealing with are not playing the same game as we are, we need to shift and change those relationships.
10. Invasion of Personal Space/Being Very Close To Unhealthy People
This is a little more advanced, but some people can feed off of you by just standing close to you. Since your energy field (aura) extends around your body in a distance of 5 feet give or take, those who are more experienced "feeders" will simply feed off your energy by standing close to you. You would not believe the amount of people who have tried to stand extremely close to me in order to feed off my aura. It is almost a joke. But this is what some due in order to steal your power and energy.
11. At distance Feeding aka "Cording"
Another more advanced method used by those who are highly skilled is to focus their feeding from a distance. Yes some people can actually feed off your energy psychically by using their mind and focusing on "cording" with you. "Cords" work by very thin thread like energetic cords (almost like tentacles) being connected to you to feed off you. Some people can project their cords from a distance to you and suck and steal energy from you. You usually have to be within eye distance of them, but it can be done and it is done on a daily by those who are more skilled at using others for energy.
12. Psychic Cords
Unlike normal energy "cords", psychic cords are a psychic connection you have with another person. You may constantly have dreams with a particular person, or you may constantly think about another person. You may think about someone and speak to them and they said they just thought about you. These are psychic connections and some of them are unhealthy because the people we are connected with "psychically" are unhealthy. If you are psychically connected to someone who is unhealthy, they can absorb some of your energy and power through dreams and other methods of psychic interaction.
13. Violence, Fear, Anger and Intimidation
An extreme way of stealing another person's power is to attempt to intimidate them or physically attack them, for if someone is coming at you to hurt you, you will have no choice but to fight back and defend yourself. It is this defending yourself that will drain you. It is the heavy emotional crap you will go through while defending yourself that will drain you. It is the fear you feel when someone attempts to threaten you with physical harm that will drain you. Fear and anger are one in the same, so if someone gets you angry and upset at them that anger will drain you. These are all the extremely deceptive and manipulative ways some people use to steal our power. So be careful with who attempts to scare or hurt you. Defense is necessary in some instances but not all. The warrior way is to avoid conflict at all costs, and walking away is sometimes the best defense. Fear no one, unless you like being afraid. Fear is extremely dis-empowering and it is the greatest tool of all to steal another person's power and energy. If you could get everyone to fear you, what a great master of dis-empowerment you would be. But people choose to be afraid. It is a learned response and choice common among people who are not in their power. People can also project their fears and anger and negative emotions on to you as a sort of psychic attack and that will drain you as well. Learn to be in your power and develop emotional control and you will respond less and less to life with fear.
