I ran into a vampire that sucked me out. The mood has deteriorated or a strange weakness has appeared.
After talking with a person, you suddenly find that your mood has deteriorated or a strange weakness has appeared. Sound familiar? Almost certainly!
Many people associate this with mystical abilities and special energy.
“I ran into a vampire who sucked me out,” they say. Psychologists dispense with mysticism in their explanations, and in their mouths "energetic vampirism" is nothing more than a colorful metaphor.
Ladies and gentlemen, we invite your attention to a session of black magic with its further exposure. However, first of all, let me acquaint you with the history of the issue.
Vampire(he is a ghoul, these words have a common origin) - a mythical character who drinks human blood. This endows him with a variety of supernatural abilities, from the ability to live after death to the ability to transform into various objects, alive and not very much.
Thanks to the aestheticization of vampires in late 19th century Gothic novels and modern cinema, they are most often imagined as the most charming creatures with perfectly white teeth and neat little fangs, dressed in elegant costumes and characterized by an addiction to half-naked virgins. Two hundred fifty - three hundred years ago, the image of vampires was much worse: a half-decayed abomination, buried in a non-Christian way, brainless and half-rotted, thirsty for blood solely out of hatred of all living things.
Magicians, magical creatures and heroes of legends, drawing strength in human blood - from night spirits thirsting for the death of their murderers to queens taking bloody baths to preserve their youth - are found everywhere in world culture. Of course, psychology could not do without them: among the patients of psychoanalysts there are many people who believe that they negatively affect others, as well as those who are sure that they are being pursued by vampires.
“A vampire is a dead person who sucks the blood of sleepers. This image, haunting the patient's imagination, is quite often encountered in clinical and psychoanalytic practice and expresses the patient's visualization of the feeling that all his psychic powers are taken away by someone else."
IM Kondakov, "Dictionary of Clinical Psychology".
Some time ago, however, another type of vampire appeared in the world - energy. If you believe parapsychologists, psychics and other characters who earn money by taking money from the suffering in exchange for magical passes, an energy vampire is a person who forcibly takes away, "sucks" our energy. At the same time, the most conscientious ones explain that "energy" is nothing more than a metaphor denoting the totality of a person's inner forces: his well-being, mood, feeling of his power, and the like.
“The essence of an energy vampire begins to take root in a person from childhood. The fact is that the children's energy field is very weak and unprotected, it is influenced by adults, and the baby easily absorbs the energy of its parents and caregivers. Therefore, if a child does not feel love and often hears rough and cold remarks from his parents in his address, then he will grow up capricious, and becoming a little older, he will begin to be rude to his parents in response. As we can see, vampirism - the desire to improve one's well-being at the expense of another person - can arise in a very infancy."
Judith Orloff, “Positive Energy. Ten reliable recipes on how to turn fatigue, stress and fear into cheerfulness, cheerfulness and love."
Black magic of energy vampires
Now I will pretend to be an energy vampire, and you will give me your energy. If everything works out, in the next article I will tell you how good and comfortable I am, how I am prosperous and in harmony with the world, and you will complain to me in the comments how bad you are and how your head hurts.
As an energy vampire, I love to scandal, whine, complain about life, list all the ailments, my own and all my relatives, cry for sympathy while pressing on your sick calluses, and call at inopportune hours. In addition, I am a genius flatterer, a sucker, and an amateur under the guise of helping to elicit information about your deepest problems. There is even a division of energy vampires into active (screaming) and passive (whining).
It looks something like this: “Oh, good people, the house burned down, my grandfather got sick, I have an inflammation of cunning, an increase in acidity in my stomach, I’ll smash all your dishes, but I won’t pick up the fragments, because you are such stout idiots - you can see right away, that noble, a little bit malacholny, by the way, and what are you dissatisfied? I suppose someone knocked up your dissolute daughter - tell me, I know that I can help you! I have all gynecologists and obstetricians in my family, I will ease your mental pain."
How is it? Are you getting sick? Take your time with the answer, listen to yourself. In the meantime, I will organize …
… exposing energy vampires
If we reject the hypothesis of influence using NLP techniques, energy vampirism can be explained by completely ordinary things:
Aggression. Man, as you know, descended from a monkey. Monkey communities are not at all like the Gardens of Eden: each has a supreme dominant, and all the rest obey. However, a rigid hierarchy is established between the rest, which is also supported by aggression. In human society, the right of the strong, fortunately, is not always decisive. However, aggression, especially if its causes and goals are incomprehensible to the one at whom it is directed, causes negative emotions, which then have to be eliminated and suppressed. This may well cause the very fatigue and emptiness that is attributed to communication with the energy vampire.
Hypochondria. A person who constantly and for no particular reason complains about health, as a rule, does not strive for any constructive dialogue. His complaints are aimed at gaining attention and pity. This is how he feels needed, loved, or at least interesting. Those who are forced to communicate with such a character, as a rule, feel that they are being manipulated, but many cannot do anything about this, since the social order obliges to support the sick and suffering. In addition, such an imaginary patient provokes in the listener thoughts or fantasies about him, the listener, his own ailments. As a result, the person really starts to feel worse.
Flattery … This has something in common with the previous scenario. This is common - manipulation. The point is, undeserved praise is rarely pleasant. A person who is being flattered, as a rule, understands that this is not done for nothing. Moreover, foolish praise, even with the best of intentions, can be disgusting - for example, praising everyone indiscriminately or over praising in hopes of winning the goodwill of the world. And it is very unpleasant when you are praised by someone who, for example, two days earlier painted with the most iridescent colors of some disgusting type. Cognitive dissonance arises, which leaves a bitter residue.
Caring for your own purposes. There are people who like to help who are actually motivated by the desire to "find out how bad things are with them, so that I feel good." Other "benefactors" admire their own "altruism", or even flaunt it if they can find an audience. It is not surprising that such "services" are perceived as an encroachment on personal space and interference in other people's affairs. And this also leaves behind unpleasant emotions, irritation, fatigue, and even depression, and, to top it off, the thought that you respond to someone else's good deed with black ingratitude.
Disguised insults. A simple example. “Oh, what a wonderful dress you have! How well it hides that you have crooked legs and no waist! " There are several reasons for the disorder, which has nowhere to "dump" and have to "swallow", suppress. First, not everyone knows how to respond to such teasing and insults, and therefore feel helpless. Secondly, a certain internal conflict arises, especially among those who from childhood were forbidden to be angry with others: "She probably just wanted to praise the dress, well, but my legs … my legs are really crooked." Thirdly, there are companies where a greeting in the spirit of "Hello, friend, I'm glad to hear your burnt voice!" is considered the norm, and trying to take offense at him will be considered a defeat.
The desire to win back. Once bitten by a vampire, he himself turns into a vampire; this applies not only to fairy tales, but also to real life. The boss yelled at dad, dad at mom, mom at the child, and he strangled the hamster. Moreover, the methods of spreading the infection are different for everyone. The mother-in-law, who "bit" her daughter-in-law by listing her own ailments, will turn her into a "vampiress" who will throw her husband a loud scandal with the beating of plates in order to regain composure and be convinced of her own strength.
Aspen stake for a vampire
If you think about it, it turns out that the esoteric methods of dealing with vampires - crossing your fingers behind your back, washing your face with cold water or reading prayers - are by no means as ridiculous as it seems at first glance. All of them allow you to psychologically distance yourself, regain control over yourself, not allow the vampire to control your behavior, interrupt the flow of negative emotions.
In general, if you suddenly feel worse after reading this emotionally oriented and energetically depleted text (to create a difference in potentials and drain psychic energy), just spit over your left shoulder at the monitor. The need to wipe it off is great for helping you regain control of yourself, your feelings, and your energy.
