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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
During my first attempt, I recall being annoyed at the editing of this book, the numerous misspellings and grammatical errors. An editor is paid money to check a book for these things. This time around, I still discovered the misspellings, but discovered the message as well.
For those who are unfamiliar with this topic, psychic vampires have nothing to do with Bela Lugosi, Twilight, biting people in the neck, stakes through the heart etc. This is a topic about people who drain away your energy. They are real, and tend to be family members and co-workers.
There were things that I still found annoying about the book. The author's overuse of the words like synergy and empowerment. When I see "synergy", I recall that word as a 1980's corporate buzzword from my days working in a large corporation. That word nauseates me, but then again, that may be my issue and negative associations of that corporation and era.
So that I don't write another overly long review, this book has a good format. The author summarizes every chapter at the end of the chapter. He gives numerous steps which include meditation and visualization exercises. They strike me for the most part as being worthwhile. Joe Slate writes about every variety of Psychic Vampire (One-on-One, Group Vampirism (including Organizational Vampires perhaps like a big corporation), Global Psychic Vampirism etc.Read more ›
