With the Sun in Scorpio many people might feel emotionally overwhelmed until around November 21 when the Sun changes energy. Since it is Hallowe’en, we need to discuss the term Soul Vampires. I have yet to hear a better term and hopefully someone out there can suggest one. Some people call them psychic vampires, but I don’t like that term and refuse to use it.
Each of us has encountered Soul Vampires. They are those folks who leave you emotionally drained. They leave your presence, you have a headache. They leave and you are emotionally exhausted. They leave and you feel depressed. They are sucking your energy and feeding off your positive vibes. Those are all indicators of a soul vampire. We have soul vampires in our families, in our workplace, and among our friends. Two out of three are pretty difficult to manage or control. However you can work towards minimizing your contact with any soul vampire who wanders into your energy field.
Use this as a tool to determine the effect a person has on you. Imagine a thermometer that shows a scale of 1 to 10. It is important for you to understand your personal Emotional IQ. 5 is average for how you typically feel.
1 = I’m seriously depressed, sad, down;
5 = I’m average, content with life and just coasting;
10 = I’m joyful, exuberant.
I truly believe that most mild to moderate depression occurs because our emotional well has run dry. We have let too many soul vampires in. We need to retreat and find out why we gave away our emotional power without filling up our well. I believe the depression of sleeping helps us to do that. It slows down the outside stimulation. It has the effect of making us cocoon until our emotional well is refilled.
If you are depressed or feel down after someone leaves your energy field, ask yourself the following:
1. is there a physical reason for my having low energy?
If so, then start eating and exercising properly. Perhaps it’s sleep you need!
2. Is there an emotional reason for my having low energy and feeling down? If so, then deal with the issue rather than running away from it.
3. Is there a spiritual reason for my having low energy and feeling depressed? If so, have a chat with God and work on faith, self respect, hope and love.
4. Is there an intellectual reason for my having low energy and feeling depressed? If so, determine why you are choosing not to challenge yourself to learn something new or to surround yourself with smart friends.
Empower yourself! Promise yourself that you will minimize your contact with soul vampires on your spiritual journey!
Life isn’t about how to survive the storm,
but how to dance in the rain!
