Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Given the catchy title, some might think Psychic Vampires is a tongue-in-cheek book about all the annoying friends and family members who drain our energy. But Joe H. Slate, an academic researcher and practicing psychologist, has written an earnest discussion on a lesser-known form of vampirism: predators who feed off human energy rather than blood. Every psychic-vampire attack "consumes its victim's energy and over the long haul destroys the energy system itself," he writes. Victims of repeated vampire attacks may experience "chronic fatigue, difficulty concentrating, sleep disturbances ... excessive anxiety, sexual indifference, and impaired memory." Much of Slate's book speaks to warding off these toxic energy attacks. (These psychic attacks take many forms: one-on-one conversations, a touch on the shoulder, or even a long-distance thought assault.) The best defense is a "strong internal system," claims Slate, who suggests numerous exercises and tools for boosting personal energy. Despite the havoc they wreak, most of Slate's vampires are not portrayed as evil life suckers, but rather people caught in a debilitating cycle of energy addiction. --Gail Hudson

This book is a must have especially for people who work in for corporations or anyone who works with the public in general. It touches on alot of things we never even realize. Even talks about how in relationships we could be victims of a psychic vampire or the predator. Alot of times it is a totally unconscious that a person is draining others of energy. In todays society with all thats going on we need to be aware. Not paranoid just aware. This book is a must have for anyone in a draining relationship,codependant relationships,working in the public or anyone studying the psychic realm. Very beneficial information to have.

I chose this book for my Metaphysical Discussion Group. I bought it originally to learn how to block people that try to access my energy without my permission.

We all know these people. The guy at work that gets in your face and talks really loud and fast so you can't hold your own in the conversation. The woman that stops you in the hall to gossip about your co-workers and cause dissent. The family member that calls to complain about the fact that you don't call them. These are all techniques that psychic vampires use.

We've all walked into a room and noticed the mood of the group. Sometimes, although not a word is said, it's obvious that everyone is stressed, or sad, or expectant. Mob behavior is another manifestation of sharing energy. People that would never riot or attack another person, do so because they are overwhelmed by the emotions that those around them are giving off.

Many abusive relationships are a result of psychic vampirism. The dominant person controls the other by withholding positive energy except for short periods of time to keep the person "hooked'.

There are positive examples of sharing energies also. For example, a mother and her infant are sometimes so closely linked that she knows when the baby needs her. I know personally one mother that woke in the night in a panic, ran to the babies crib, and found him totally blue. She screamed and he woke up, probably just in time. The next day they found out he had SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome), and he had to wear a monitor for over a year to keep from slipping away in his sleep. Negative experiences have been known to dry up a mother's milk.

We all live each day with our own emotions, but we also live with the emotions of others.

Format: Paperback
When I picked up this book I was very excited about it because it had some exercises (such as interlocking your fingers to close your aura from others) that seemed very intrigueing. With the enthusiasm of the new book I started getting right into but soon found that it fit my rule that if has the author use a title such as doctor on the cover it hard to read because they want to prove there worth of intellect (not all of them... but most of them). This book seemed to try to to hard to be "medically correct" with discriptions that sounded like they were generalizations from a medical journal it came across as impersonal, intellectual, and sometimes hard to put it in usable information.
Now like I said something about it in the title I finished probably two thirds of the book. For me to get that far it had to have something to keep me interested... and it did.
The good aspects about this book is that it does define everything, especailly the types of vampire relationships and symptoms that you can observe in these relationships. It makes it easier to recognize where vampirism actually occurs in everyday relationships... Making vampirism not something that only occurs in especailly evil or practiced people... but something that occurs in codependant, dependant, and in sometimes otherwise healthy relationships. It also does an important and excellent job at making the important discription of telling the reader about how to overcome vampiring another person.
The exercises to overcome vampirism are good but as all magickal/psychological work it requires the reader to actually become involved in the work emotionally more then just doing the motions. Though there is little mention of the emotional involvement needed.

I read Psychic Vampires at a time when I was under attack of one of these energy vampires. Dr. Slate's techniques helped me not only to see how I was giving my precious energy to a negative person in my life, but most importantly, how to shield myself from future attacks. The person is now out of my life. I am more energized and healthy thanks to Dr. Slate's book!

This book is not for beginners or newbees(dealing with Psychic Attacks; which is still a rare topic but current event). Ur situation may be advance or frequent, but if you are not into heavy psychic science or raw science in general, then this book needs to be read slow and kept as a reference. TOP NOTCH-EXCELLENT. I was able to follow along after building my studies for 5 yrs. It is known in other science studies, for Practitioners or healers to experience more psychic attacks than the average.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book provides what claims to be scientific evidence for the existence of energy vampires and how to protect yourself and your aura from them. It is almost exclusively concerned with incarnate (living human) vampires in all their forms and functions, and I was disappointed more attention was not paid to discarnate energy beings (dark force entities, earthbound spirits, astral vampires, etc.). The book provides clear, detailed info on how, why, and when psychic vampires attack and feed, as well as various proven protection techniques (some quicker and easier than others).

Overall, the book is a bit dry and academic in tone, but still extremely interesting. The rainbow cover is pretty cheesy, even though I know it is meant to represent the aura/chakra color system.

I would recommend getting Practical Psychic Self Defense Handbook, The: A Survival Guide if you are more concerned about psychic attacks and/or possession from discarnate entities.
