What is an energy vampire?
An energy vampire is a physical person or an entity who sucks your energy - to harm you deliberately or not.
Let’s see 2 different cases in order to give you an idea.
The vampire is another human being:
Sometimes some people want to harm you whatever their reasons might be, this is a case of active vampirism.
In some other cases, a person’s actions can harm you without them having the intention to do so (ex: someone who complains all the time, who expects you to justify yourself, who seeks your attention constantly) but the result is the same. In this case, energy vampirism is not deliberate/direct but it can harm you as much as an active one.
If the vampire is an entity:
Some entities who used to be incarnated in a physical body are sometimes not aware that they are physically dead or they might not be able to transition, in that case they can happen to attach themselves to you or to just suck your energy indirectly if they live where you live (they can also be attached to places - every entity needs energy to survive on its plane of existence). In that case the entity’s goal is not to harm but to survive - harming you is a consequence.
There are also some very low vibrational entities who are demonic and just want to harm and annoy people until someone takes actions to stop them from doing so.
10 signs to recognize an energy vampire
sudden stomach ache or nausea without any apparent reason
sudden pain in the chest, back, shoulders or solar plexus (not linked to an organ pain - you will be able to tell, it is an energy type of pain)
headache, a kind of throbbing pain
mood swings: you can become short-tempered, lose patience or react in a disproportionate way to a situation without any "logical" reason
feeling like a heaviness on your shoulders or in your solar plexus (around your solar chakra)
anxiety or nervousness, feeling that you are smothering inside (without really being physically short for breath)
sudden negative thoughts that come out of the blue
premonition, feeling that something is happening
feeling dizzy in a place where there are entities
feeling of apprehension that has no “logical” explanation when thinking of a specific person or place or when you are receiving a phone call from a "vampire"
How you can protect yourself:
ask Archangel Michael for protection if you resonate
visualize a bubble around you that is your energetic shield and set the intention that no one can penetrate
carry a crystal with you (like black tourmaline, onyx, tiger's eye)
work on raising your vibration
trust yourself and set clear boundaries
In any case, there is nothing to fear and there are solutions. An energy healer, a shaman and/or a psychopomp can intervene to help cut cords, cleanse the energies and guide the entities so that they can transition. What can also help is that taking your power back, expressing your personal power and saying stop when the situation is harming you before it becomes unbearable.
