Protect Yourself Energetically from Draining People, Part 5

Worried about a draining personality?

Worried about a draining personality?

Today we continue our series on protecting yourself from difficult people, a.k.a. draining people, toxic personalities, energy vampires, psychic vampires, narcissists, or just plain “somebody difficult.”

Why do new fears emerge now about contamination by somebody else’s energies? When you live has a lot to do with it. We’re still getting used to the new Age of Aquarius, whose defining characteristic is this: All humans can notice energy more easily.

You may not go to the extreme of fearing a “draining person” or scaring yourself with similar names that grew popular in the decades leading up to this Age of Aquarius.  Yet you still may feel uncomfortable around certain people’s energies.

What can you do about that? How can you best protect yourself?

In today’s Part 5 of a 6-part series that began here, we’re going to take a especially practical approach, by way of a teaching tale.

GLADYS is a sweet client who has had many sessions with me off and on over the past several years. She’s spunky, smart, and a survivor who is committed to personal growth. Besides that, she’s caring, with beautiful integrity and deep Christian values. It doesn’t hurt that she’s very pretty, too.

Yet she has made choices that recently resulted in big drama with a “Draining Person.”

Overcoming challenges in the Age of Aquarius, a guest post by DON

Big congratulations. Human-sized congratulations.

Big congratulations. Human-sized congratulations.

Has anyone congratulated you lately? Well, you deserve it, just getting through the day.

Because these days are being lived in the still-newish Age of Aquarius, when all humans must adjust to the thinning of the veil. It’s all too easy now, moving deeply into astral experience (a.k.a. subconscious frequencies), which can throw us off our game — the game of being human. Energetically the world is different now.

Wars and financial upheavals compound the adjustment needed, due to the new astral dazzle.

Even biologically, we’re having to adapt. As a wise chiropractor was telling me today, the sheer number of chemicals each of us deals with on a daily basis has increased exponentially since the 1980’s. This is being processed by us all the way down to the cellular level.

70 years of fame — that's the main story being explored in this month's issue of "Reading Life Deeper"

How about a kindness break?

From one human tear  you might generate so many drops of sweetness

From one human tear you might generate so many drops of sweetness

At the blog lately I’ve been going through the grim parade of draining people, toxic personalities, energy vampires, psychic vampires. Have been trying to sort out common misunderstandings that happen all too often in this new Age of Aquarius.

Meanwhile here is what has happened to me personally in the last 24 hours. I have had three very difficult interactions, two with established relationships that matter enormously to me and one with a potential new friendship that is now, officially, over.

For me that amounted to more difficult personal interactions than I have had in the last six months. Maybe longer. Definitely more tears than I have shed in many years, put together.

Communication matters so much for untangling misunderstandings. In every one of these conflict resolutions, it was necessary for me to admit mistakes I had made. Admit to the other person, admit to myself.

The other person fought fair, just as I did. What matters most is that, in each case, we arrived at an understanding. I’m sure that respectful resolution of conflict will help us so much in the long run, keeping each relationship vibrant.

Glad tidings have arrived from Mother Nature.

Yes, spring is coming to metro Washington D.C. The crocuses are shouting it like crazy.

And two noisy bird families are already trying to raise robins, one family each per brown-sided column along the entrance to my front door.

Protect Yourself Energetically from Energy Vampires, Part 3

Could that boyfriend really be an energy vampire who is masquerading as a human being?

Could that boyfriend really be an energy vampire who is masquerading as a regular human being?

Today we continue our series on protecting yourself from difficult people, a.k.a.  energy vampires, psychic vampires, narcissists, draining people, toxic personalities, or just plain “somebody difficult.”

Why do new fears emerge now, almost as if fearing contimination by somebody else’s energies? When you live has a lot to do with it. We’re still getting used to the new Age of Aquarius, whose defining characteristic is this: All humans can notice energy more easily.

You may not go to the extreme of calling that difficult person in your life an “energy vampire” or other names that grew popular in the decades leading up to The Shift into this Age of Aquarius.  Yet you still may feel uncomfortable around certain people’s energies.

What can you do about that? How can you protect yourself? In today’s Part 3 of a 6-part series that began here, let’s consider one very big way you can help yourself to disentangle energetically from the energies of a problem person in your life.

What is an energy vampire, anyway?

The first step in protecting yourself would be to set the record straight. There are no energy vampires. Not figuratively, unless you’re a very sloppy perceiver of energy. And, I’m pretty sure, not literally.

Really, has any human being ever approached you, then growled, “I come to suck your blood”? How about ringing your doorbell, giving you a grim glower, and then announcing, “I come to suck your energy”?

Protect Yourself Energetically from Toxic Personalities, Part 2

Why are today’s new fears emerging so strongly, as if we could be contiminated or attacked by somebody else’s energies?

Why Cords of Attachment Matter Now More Than Ever

You have always had cords of attachment. Only now they may bother you more.

How to Protect Yourself Energetically from Somebody Difficult, Part 1

Puzzled over how to protect yourself energetically, aurically, vibrationally?

Puzzled over how to protect yourself energetically, aurically, vibrationally?

Potheads and alcoholics aren’t the only difficult people to live with. Recently we have been having a lively discussion at Answering your latest questions about marijuana, and today we can broaden the inquiry.

  • In his Comment #23, Blog-Buddy DAVID FB asked about the tendency to take on extra STUFF if you’re in an intimate relationship with someone addicted.
  • While ISABELLE is the one who originally started that conversation (and blog post) with her questions about special problems for empaths when dealing with a pothead.

Such questions strike me as extra important these days.  Long before the Shift into this Age of Energy, there have been alcoholics and others trapped into substance abuse of various kinds. Why do new fears emerge now, almost as if fearing contimination by somebody else’s chemical addiction?

A sweet, small precedent for my work as an Enlightenment Coach

Enlightenment dazzles yet again

Enlightenment dazzles yet again

Ha, I’m adding this preface the following day, just to clarify, before you’all read a thing.

The sweet, small precedent is this. LINDA was the first client I’ve ever had who requested, and received, some aura healing and transformation who:

  1. Had moved into Enlightenment before becoming my client.
  2. Was still interested in progressing as a human personality
  3. And thus had a session that turned into aura healing and transformation.

In the past, I have facilitated sessions with:

  1. Clients who gradually crossed the threshold into Enlightenment.
  2. Clients who moved into Enlightenment and then continued to have further sessions with me, enjoying aura healing and transformation.
  3. They already knew the value of furthering their personal development.

Commonly, people who have moved into Enlightenment feel so good that they don’t consider progressing further in human ways. They may be interested in progress as far as consciousness is concerned, but not in progress on the human side.

Okay, now I’ve written all this more clearly. On to last night’s original post….
