In past discussions, if you have been following this blog, we have discussed emotional polarization, archetypes such as lightworkers and darkworkers, love and codependency, emotional dissociation, and narcissism. All of these themes dance around a topic most Empaths are aware of, Psychic Vampirism and Psychic Attacks, but do not openly discuss for the most part. It is as though it were a taboo subject. But I believe it is important to shed some light on this topic. So lets start, as we always do, with some basic definitions to get the ball rolling, and from there...we'll see where it takes us.
An Empath is a person who has an acute or highly developed sense of empathy. Empathy is the capability to share your feelings and understand another's emotion and feelings and is often characterized as the ability to "put oneself into another's shoes".
A Psychic Vampire is a term used to describe a living person who "drains" others emotionally either empathically (draining the auric life force) or metaphorically (someone who takes emotionally without giving anything back; a "user").
Psychic Vampires are those which are born with (latent or active) an internal need, a physical need for pranic (life) energy which they themselves cannot supply.
Psy-Vamp is one who has a psychological dependency for pranic energy.
An Energy Vampire (or more commonly known as an "energy vamp") is a person that feeds off the life force or energy (or ch'i) of other living creatures - mostly other people. Can also be known as pranic vampire, empathic vampire, energy predator, psy-vamp, energy parasite, or emotional vampire.
Emotional Vampirism is the act of manipulating another into an intense desired emotional state; such as love, passion, anger, in order to absorb the resulting emotional energy. Emotional vampirism includes such practices as learning what someone needs in a mate and accentuating those traits so the person thinks he or she is in love.
Emotional Energy arises out of an intense emotional state; such as love, passion, anger.
Pranic energy, also known as life energy, is the energy needed to live.
Prana is the life force or vital energy, which permeates the body and is especially concentrated along the midline in the chakras. It is life sustaining energy centered in the human brain governing inspiration and the conscious intellect.

The Important Stuff
So we've seen definitions and traits of psy vamps, symptoms of psy attacks, precautionary measures, and a few quizzes to see if you are a psy vamp and/or if you are susceptible to psy attack. But please do not assume that this is a complete guide to this topic, by any means, because there is quite a bit of information out there if you are willing to search for it. Now we will move on to the important stuff, that none of the above will tell you.
You and only you have control over your own body in both its corporeal and ethereal forms. What this means is that the only one who can give permission, whether it is out of a lack of attention to what is going on around you or simply unknowing capitulation, to being used in such a way is you. So the responsiblity of either your ignorance or your inattentiveness is on you, while the responsibility of intentionally seeking to drain another's energy is on the person attempting it.
Most, but not all, people who are deemed as energy drainers or psychic vampires, in reality, have no idea of what they are doing to other people. To them it is as unintentional as knocking into you on accident when you pass one another on a street corner. In these types of cases, there is no intent to harm and no will to steal. Usually these types of people are simply going through something in their lives that has left them highly emotionally needy, so they begin to reach out, in all directions, unconsciously for support.
Beyond this point, there are real psychic vampires who claim the ability to intentionally drain others of their energy (prana, emotional energy, or whatever else you wish to call it). Are all of these people bad, because of such a claim (not debating the reality or fantasy of this topic)? No. They, like all of us, are multifaceted beings who exhibit one behavior which one might wish to avoid. But beyond that one behavior, they are as normal as the next person. They hold down jobs. They have families. They have friends. And they experience life in the same day to day world that all of us share.
As Empaths, we have the ability to shift our perspective to help us understand what others motives and intentions truly are. In doing this, the next time you run across someone you feel is draining you of energy, try to see them from their perspective. Are they really draining you? Are they really trying to hurt you? Think about it.
