I once knew an angel named Angel who taught metaphysical classes in Aspen, Colorado, which I attended in order to learn more about my own burgeoning psychic development and inner understanding. She used to describe the sensation of being in a public place, such as a crowded department store, and suddenly feeling drained of energy. Some stranger had, in passing, caught her off-guard and sucked away the thin, invisible garment of mysterious force that we all, apparently, walk around with. She taught basic skills to guard against this.
After describing the human chakra system, Angel said that many folks just walk around with their seven chakras spinning like bright, wide-open energy pinwheels. That’s the equivalent of carrying a gaping pocketbook and will often attract a bandit looking for something to steal. To prevent this, before going into public you should concentrate on your chakras and imagine closing them like a camera aperture. You can also imagine wrapping yourself in a silver or gold hooded cloak for an extra measure. Most people aren’t aware of their chakras at all, but an energy bandit is apparently equipped to recognize an open opportunity to siphon off the substance which he needs for his own health and well-being.
I have to confess that I never remember to do any of this but the lessons recently came back to me when I read a book written from an energy bandit’s point of view. This book described such people as the real vampires, as opposed to fictional ones, who live in all societies and who cannot help the need that they have to draw down energy from people who can produce their own. The author explains that they are born with this need and it is a normal situation for them, rather than any sort of disease or evil intention. Many have no idea of what they are doing or why. Others are aware and are quite good at secretly feeding from the general population.
I do plan to reveal the name and details of this book, but in order to prevent a quick dismissal on your part, I’m taking my time so that I can describe some of the serious contributions it makes to an understanding of a very misunderstood subject. The puzzle pieces have been lying around for centuries but are so fragmented, scattered, and feared that I doubt if anyone has put them together before. I think that this is a seminal study on the subject and deserves to be considered. In addition to describing the situation in detail, this author makes a case for positive contributions which these people make to society because of this natural condition which they carry in this life.
Before you pass this off as foolishness, consider this:
1. Are there certain people in your life who simply make you tired every time you are with them? Does it take hours, or even days, for you to recover from their presence, even if you can find no excuse such as a thirty-mile hike or an all-night party.
2. Do you know drama queens or kings who always seem to be in emotional chaos and constantly try to involve you in the solutions to their many problems? Do they need your input on everything? Your patient counselling? Your strength?
3. Is there someone whom you might not have seen for years, but with whom you sense some sort of telepathic connection which activates at odd intervals? Do you sometimes feel exhausted and/or exhibit rashes and pains after having “a dream” about them? Or when you realize that some thought connection with them has occurred?
4. Do you simply have puzzling bouts of energy depletion for which you cannot ascribe a cause?
5. Or, do you feel better after having been in an excited crowd, say at a concert or a rally? Do you sometimes need to touch or to be around positive, bouyant people who give you an “uplift?” Do you crave the focused attention of others every now and then? Perhaps you are a vampire and don’t know it. Not to worry. It isn’t as bad as you think.
Stay tuned for more on this fascinating subject.
I’ve been home from South America for exactly three weeks now and have caught up, in most departments, to a regular life schedule. But, I’m observing an exaggerated tendency about myself to just pick up almost anything written in English and spend time staring at it, turning pages. Newspapers, magazines, junk mail, and books, books, books..the more unusual, the better.
Surely, this is because I was immersed in the Spanish language for a third of a year and found only an occasional interesting volume on shelves of various hostel book exchanges to satisfy my reading needs. News and information about home came only from short blurbs on computer screens and that supply was limited, as was the time that I had to access it. I remember thinking long and hard about whether to spend $8 apiece for American news magazines down there and usually I’d decide to pass them up. So now, when I chance upon one, it appears to be very precious indeed and makes me want to devour it in one gulp. This is time consuming.
This current state of being will pass. I call it Eye Starvation because that’s the way it feels to be deprived of the visual impact of your native language for a long period of time. I remember, in Hungary, during my round-the-world trip, shocking myself because I had bought and devoured a pink London Financial Times newspaper just because it was printed in English. Dry as dust it was, but I read it all the way through.
Because of this passive tendency to slurp up words rather indiscriminately, I’m definitely in Input Mode rather than Output Mode and that affects my blog writing as well as my interest in taking the first steps towards cracking my travel journals to see what material I actually have, and if there might possibly be a book somewhere in there. Writing is not coming to me as naturally, at just this moment, as reading is. This would explain why the last few posts have been lurching along trying to set the scene for some comments on one of the books that I have recently read and which provided an Aha moment for me. I would like to describe those new realizations but it is controversial material and so I intended to back into it by using some real-life examples.
Not all of those were accurate, I have now learned from a kind reader named KT, who tells me that unsecured wi fi networks, or domains, would have no effect upon my own computer’s reception. (See my two previous posts.) Actually, I’m glad to learn that. For use in the analogy, I was trying to illustrate how other people’s invisible actions can have an unrealized effect upon our own. In the future, I think it’s best to just come right out and say what I am talking about and not try to set up anybody’s perceptions in advance….to convince you in advance….because if you disagree, you will disagree anyway.
Trouble is, that my current Input Mode is having a dilatory effect upon my Output Mode.
So, I shall cut to the chase here and explain that the amazing mystery book I mentioned in those posts is about vampires. “So, what’ s the big fuss?” you say. “Many books, these days, are about vampires…..Anne Rice, Stephanie Meyer… No big deal.”
But, this book is different because it exposes the reality behind psychic vampires or Energy Bandits, as I call them, and it explains that this is actually a real phenomenon, practiced by real people who are living all around us and who literally make up a true vampire population. In fact, the book is not written for non-vampires, but is perhaps the first self-help book written for vampires. Many of them do not know, at all, that their seemingly harmless need to be around folks who do generate a surplus of energy is caused by the fact that they themselves don’t have the ability to generate their own, but must take it from others. It’s not blood from our necks that they want, but it is small doses of our lifeforce, nonetheless. We usually never notice, but sometimes, someone will get greedy and then we fold up in a mysterious exhaustion until our system naturally regenerates our supply again.
So, this book provides much FOOD For thought and causes balls to drop into place, at least within my own mind. I’ll try to do justice to it in a future post. In the meantime…. I’ll keep on slurping….on written material, not your lifeforce.
