Itís not the house plumbing or the position of a bed. Itís never colors or doorways or anything else dťcor related Ö but you see it reflected everywhere in a home.
This problem manifests as stacks of unfinished tasks, piles of dishes in the sink, clutter, broken stuff and dark corners. Junk, chaos, things left askew Ö
Itís like the life is being drained from a space.
Sometimesa space itself is just plain spooky, but typically itís chaotic people who inhabit a space that create the energy vortex.
Are you there right now, living with vampire energy dragging on you?
Vampire energy is a name forcharacteristic vibe of those who, for a multitude of reasons, squash dreams, create confusion, wreak havoc and make strong, happy, talented, earnest people feel small, ineffectual and weak.
Letís start by saying that vampire people are not ďevil.Ē At least, most arenít! In fact, they might be people you care about deeply; great people stuck in lots of negativity. No one is perfect.
That doesnít make it OK to let this drag on forever as a dynamic that sinks your confidence, well-beingand happiness.
When Iím on to something really excellent in life, vampire energy seems to stir up all around me. I now see this as a sign that Iím doing great things.
This used to be the point where (because I wanted everyone to like me) I would sabotage my own success and start a downward spiral of dark thoughts, fear and even illness from the stress of all the negativity.
My home, finances and love life mirrored this wild instability. They were up, then down. Organized, then a tornado. I would be super-healthy, happy Ö then shattered and in tears.
I became scared of things becoming ďtoo goodĒ because somehow the good would heart-breakingly fall away. I was afraid to succeed because it meant that a wave of fear and chaos would follow.
When I finally realized I was surrounded by tons of toxic energy and many toxic relationships, I dove into every bit of help I could find to detox my life of this dynamic.
Make awareness a big deal.
Once you see whatís happening, you can change it, even if itís challenging. Taking responsibility for participating in this dynamic, rather than being a victim of it, is a great way to start clearing space.
Ignore the true haters.
I used to try to reason with haters. As a life tactic, this has only failed me and wasted time.
Declutter your life of as many of these people and situations as you can.
Iíve learned to love many people from a safe distance, especially the people who were abusively negative. Thereís no right way to do this, but get as much counseling or support as you need!
Create a sacred space for the things that matter most to you.
Julia Cameron shares an exercise in her book, The Artistís Way, to create a safe space for precious things ó like your art or your relationships ó to flourish amid vampire energy.
You only allow the most supportive people you know to share in these aspects of your life. Those topics stay 100% off limits to all but the people in your personal inner circle.
Build up your own radiant energy.
When youíre stronger, youíre more resilient! Baths in Epsom salt and baking soda (1 cup each) are relaxing and rejuvenating. Clean your house. Eat more plants. Bask in more sun. Get deep into self-love.
Youíll know when youíve succeeded in your vampire energy detox when life is brighter, your home is more organized, youíre happier, more energetic. Youíll sleep more soundly.
Itís amazing how much more free time youíll have. Money and love might even flow easier to you! Youíll get your personal magic back.
A side benefit of decluttering life in this way: you may inspire some people around you to detox their own negativity and thrive with you!
