“Energy vampire” are really just people who don’t have enough of their own energy or lost their connection with the source energy. So when you come in contact or proximity with them, you often feel drained.

Why?Empath Art

Well, they are untentionally taking your energy from you and whomever is nearby because they don’t have enough of their own. They are vibrating at such a low state of energy depletion that their system needs to constantly BORROW energy anywhere possible. And because empathic individuals are not as skilled at keeping personal boundaries, our energy leaks. It’s the easiest to take.

It crazy right?

Okay, so we can’t really do much for those people except send them blessings that they will find whatever is needed to help them feel complete and happy.

The most powerful thing we can do is refocus our awareness.

Ask yourself: “How can I increase my vibration?”

According to Caroline Myss, an amazing knowledgible person who specializes in energy work, says that we can work to heal our wounds. The wounds that have caused the holes in our energy systems causing the energy leakages. I highly recommend watching her videos, “The Energetics of Healing (1988).” Very enlightening and extremely helpful for energy sensors to understand where their energy might be leaking. From which chakras and where in their history to go back to to heal the leak(s).

I love the anology she used to clarify our energy leakage. She explains that everyone of us wakes up with a maximum deposit of $100 dollars worth of energy. And it’s up to us how we want to use it. She calls it “energy investing”. The secret is to invest our $100 into places that will yield back an interest just like a well investment in our finances “ROI” return on investment. In our case, it’s “ROE” return on energy. This is the rule of the game. We have to choose wisely where to invest our precise limited energy. Because it’ll be stupid of us to throw our money away, spend it on something that will cause us debts.

It’s interesting how she explains if we continue to have energy leakages then we’ll end up borrowing from our cell tissue in our body! Which over time can cause us health issues. For example, have you ever seen someone age a few years overnight? Because their system was so overstressed, they unknowingly had to tap into their body tissues and borrow energy from there causing them to age at a rapid rate.

What do I do to repair the holes and stop the energy leakage?

Caroline Myss covers it more in depth in her videos what specific questions to ask yourself in each of the chakras to find out where you are leaking your precious life source energy.

Let’s go over the third chakra because I feel it pertains to those of us who are more empathic the most. This is the chakra that holds our personal power. How you fell about your self: your self-esteem, self-respect, and your integrity. It’s also the place of your personal boundary.

You may have energy leakage here if you seek approvals from others. Or you say you were going to do something and then break your promise with yourself. Dishonoring your promise such as “I’m going to workout tomorrow and then don’t” this will cause distrust in yourself. Integrity is so important because you need to know you can count on yourself. Your body needs to know it can depend on you. Without integrity with yourself, more than likely you ability to function in this physical world is is not as stable as it could be. So start with rebuilding your integrity if that is off.

It’ll bring back your confidence and trust within yourself. This will help you strengthen your energy and your personal boundary. With a stronger boundary, you are vibrating at a higher positive vibration. You won’t have the need to lean on another for their approval. And your energy won’t be leaking to another for their approval. Your emotions will not be solely dependent on their response. You ‘ll have the power to say, “You know what, I don’t want to invest any of my $100 dollars of energy into that opinion, thought, or energy. ”

Watch your thoughts and anytime you catch one of these energy leakage, call it back.  This practice will help you keep your energy and maintain your boundary and calm.

If you see something you don’t agree with, instead of criticizing, condemning, or complaining – ask yourself this, “What is it in me that is CAUSING me to feel this way?”

And pause for a minute.

Simply clean how it is making YOU FEEL. Not how wrong the situation was or how that other person fell short.

During Dr. Hew Len’s Ho’oponopono training he teaches us to take 100% responsibility and clean how it’s making you feel. CLEAN THE MEMORY ON HOW THAT EVENT IS AFFECTING YOU. And clean THAT!

If you spot it, then clean it up. If you have that yucky feeling – even better. It means there is a healing opportunity there. Don’t blame. Don’t brush it off. Instead take 100% responsibility for the situations and clean the emotions attached to the incident. Feel your feelings and transform it. Let those emotions dissolve and transmute into light.

All you have to do is TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF.

Because if you start thinking you need to do it for others – thinking cleaning the emotions for them would help them – you’ll be in for a big surprise. Not a very good one I may add. (I’ve been there…and trust me, it wears you out.  You are opening doors that should be left alone.)

Not until I re-listened to Dr. Hew Len’s audio again did I understand why I should not be cleaning how OTHERS’ are feeling. But instead I should ONLY FOCUS ON ME – cleaning only what I feel. Dr. Hew Len mentioned, if you try to clean the other person, you are essentially  trying to process EVERYTHING connected to that person. That’s a butt-load of memories. You are cleaning all things connected to that person’s past and present occurrences. Anything from their family history as well.

Can you believe it?

You are trying to clean for them, their mother’s, father’s, grandparents’, great grandparents, ancestors, and all those connected to them. You are trying to clean up ALL this person’s blood line of stuff.

That’s why Dr. Hew Len teaches his students to only to TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF. Just focus on cleaning your stuff. This will raise your  vibration. You’ll have a cleaner vessel. That will in return raise the vibrations of those nearest to you and clean up those dirty stagnant energy near you. At least, you’re cleaning the space around you (where ever you go).

When you do this you make room for inspiration to come in. The contagious “feel good clean energy” may inspire those connected to you to take actions to raise their own vibration.

I’ve seen it happen right in front of my eyes over and over again. It’s amazing!

People are attracted to clean, high vibration, and feel good energy. It’s very contagious.

So remember, start with cleaning and taking care of yourself first. Let the good feeling overflow abundantly from you.

Being an empath can feel like a curse instead of a gift. This is especially so when we don’t know how to deal with it.

Moreover, we can feel like a victim to the different things happening around us… Even feel things going on are bigger than us. Taking in so much emotion, thoughts,and physical pain of others we can feel overwhelm and over consumed by the intensity.

… and we wonder “Why me?”

When it feels like it’s just too much, this one phrase could help you put things into perspective.

“We all are affected by each other regardless if we are an empath or not. You affect me. I affect you. Even if some of us can not sense it  to the degree and intensity as we [empaths] can, never the less, they are affected. Because WE ARE ALL CONNECTED. ”

I picked this up from a good friend and teacher of mine, Dr. Michael R. Smith. If you want to learn more about being an empath and how to work with your gifts and abilities, or simply just need more guidance, or pick on a skilled empath’s brain (who has over 15 years of experience in helping empaths and highly sensitive people (HSP) connect with their highest self bringing out their full potential) I highly recommend you to get a copy of his ebook The Complete Empath Toolkit: 44 Practical Steps to Master Your Energy and Personal Power. It’s a life saver!

He is truly a gift and inspiration to us fellow empaths for the work he does. We can always use more people with loving heart and patience. Michael is definitely shaking up the world with his work. I invite you to join us in the journey of discovering your unique abilities.

Words of wisdom for all Empaths and Highly Sensitive People from Dr. Michael Smith.

Empaths and the Shadow – Overcoming Darkness by Creating Light

By Michael Robert Smith

Empaths understand, as walkers between worlds, the polarities of Darkness and Light.

Every single thought carries energy that affects ourselves as empaths and others. Empaths know and understand this unlike any other individuals, because we take the brunt of other people’s negativity. We feel it in our own energy fields.

Empaths often will hear the very not-so-nice words and literally experience the not-so-nice energy that has been created by others. The mere act of walking into a chaotic restaurant or department store is all that it takes (thus, empaths avoid crowded places like the plague).

Negative energy stays around. If left unchecked, it will accomplish its mission of advancement of the Darkness. One simple negative thought will linger unless we recant those words and take responsibility for our own karmic negativity.

If we do not face the Shadow side and learn to become friends with it, then we will never learn to grow past it, nor be of any real help to others. The shadow side is an invitation to create Light. It can NEVER be changed or altered by merely ignoring it or by running away (which empaths tend to be very good at). The Shadow and Darkness are strong signals that we need to do everything in our power to Create Light.

The goal of the work I do is to teach empaths to be better Light Creators. It is our responsibility to ourselves and to others. Creating Light is done through pure prayer, patience, and finding others who are stronger on which to temporarily rely. We cannot accomplish our Collective task as humans and as empaths unless we help each other. That means asking for help when you know you need it – putting aside your ego. I struggled for many years by myself in isolation, thinking that I had to do it all myself. Only when I dropped that belief did I receive the help that I needed, and get to a place where I now am thriving and not a victim anymore.

It’s my belief that empaths have asked for this experience, and here we are Now with a job to do. Accumulated negativity (otherwise known as Karma) is never altered unless we have a stronger Light energy to absorb it and transmute it. Thus, the power of prayer and intention.

Prayer from a pure and humble heart is strong enough to erase and diminish any negative energy. However, many times it will take years to be enough to overcome the Darkness. This is the not-so-fun aspect of Karma, and of being an empath, sucking up everyone else’s negativity. And yet with patience, it WILL be overcome. That is a Universal truth.

I write these words to offer you encouragement to endure and persevere over whatever hardships that are currently Testing you. There is nothing that is strong enough to break you, unless you let it. And if you let it, then you may just get to come back into an earthly body again and do it all over again, until you get it right.

Go for broke this time. You’re an empath with a job to do.

Face you shadow – clean yourself up. And most importantly, ask for help! This time, let’s all get it right!

Here are some solutions to clearing negative energy we found useful. Everyone is different, so try them out to see which ones work better for you.

The number one key is to STAY GROUNDED in your body. This means getting regular exercise, eating nutritional food, and cutting out overstimulating things in your life.

Clearing Negative Energy In Your Environment:
1. Smudging your home with sage.
2. Doing Meditation and taking deep breaths.
3. Strategically placing bowls of sea salt in your home to protect you from entrance of negative energy. The salt acts as an absorbent to negative energy.
4. Using protective stones and crystals. Some good protective stones that repel negative energy are Onyx and Obsidian. While Amber and black tourmaline acts more like absorbers.  And Amethyst is considered a healing stone. So you may also want to consider wearing protective stone jewelry. (Just remember to clean the stones regularly with sea salt and water.)
5. Physically clean the place. This removes the old energy and keep the place in high vibration.

A man in Hawaii healed the patients in a special ward, a clinic for the mentally ill insane criminals… And closed down the entire hospital.

So how did psychologist, Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len, do it?

At the time this Hawaii State Hospital was filled with individuals who committed murder, rape, and other serious crimes. People who worked there were so frightened of the dangerous environment and unpredictable threatening attitude of the inmates that staff would constantly call in sick. Nobody wanted to come and work in fear of being attacked by a patient-inmates. The employee turnover became so bad that many workers quit after a few months.

How did Dr. Hew Len change all that?

He practiced, what he calls, “Ho’oponopono“. It basically revolves around the concept that everything that you perceive or that happens around you is your own creation and take this…You are 100% RESPONSIBLE for it. No exception.

Pretty hard to swallow, huh?

Doing ho’oponopono, it’s claimed, you can virtually heal yourself and you can can virtually heal whoever or whatever that appears to you as a problem. The phrase, “If you spot it, you got it…” pretty much says we are all connected. If the problem was introduced to us, it means we attracted it. Somehow we are responsible. Not necessary at fault, but responsible because the world is our creation. As Dr. Hew Len likes to point out, “Didn’t you notice that whenever you experience a problem, you are there?”

Dr. Hew Len points out that “Peace begins with me.” If there is going to be peace in the world, it starts with first cleaning ourselves.

So how do we do this “cleaning”?

Here’s the healer’s SECRET technique that freed the mentally insane criminals.

By simply feeling and saying these 4 Simple Phrase (in any order you like) daily to situations that appears to you as a problem.

I’m sorry.
Please forgive me.
I love you.
Thank you.

Take ownership…the whole 100% responsibility for the happening. Apologize for the situation and feel that. Ask the Divine Creator for forgiveness thus cleaning and cutting any negative memories, blocks, and vibrations of that unwanted energy from the beginning of our creation to the present. Because we just aren’t that big to see all and why the problem came to existence. We sometimes have to just ask and let and trust the Divine to see it through. And then feel the love and appreciation by saying, “I Love You” and “Thank You” to the Divine Creator and ourselves.

This ritual has the intention to cleanse, purify, release and cut any negative memories and blocks connected to that energy and situations and wiping it clean. Which brings you back to the original state he calls the “Zero” where there are zero limits. This is the state where one is free from the past, wrongs, gunk, and any unwanted energies…  And where space is made for the Divine creator, light, and love to come in.

Only when we have clarity can The Divinity provide us with insight, inspiration and whatever is perfect for us… And true lasting change can take place.

This is a prayer Kahuna Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona used to heal and clean negative energies, memories, thoughts, blocks, and vibrations making space for the divine to flow through you.

The story goes… during one of Morrnah’s gathering, a student (who could see people’s aura) pointed out that everyone in the room has an aura around them except Kahuna Morrnah. For some odd reason, Morrnah did not have one around her. The student was baffled by this. Then a fellow attendee told her she needs to go outside up to the hills to see for herself. And so the student did, and to her amazement, There it was!… Morrnah’s aura… so grand, that it covered the whole place. Morrnah’s aura was so large you could not see it up close because you were inside her auric field.

I love this story. I feel it sums up a lot of things about who Morrnah is.  And most importantly, how this prayer has help her in her journey. Thank you Morrnah for your gift and enlightenment to the world. You are not only a jewel of Hawaii, but a beautiful blessing and light to us all.

May Morrnah’s prayer and blessing bring more peace, love, and light into your universe.

Here’s the Prayer For Cleaning and Cutting All Negative Energies (From Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona–A Hawaiian Kahuna).

Divine Creator, Father, Mother, and Son as one…

If I, my family, relatives, and ancestors have offended you, your family, relatives, and ancestors in thoughts, words, deeds, and actions from the beginning of our creation to the present, we ask for your forgiveness.

Let this cleanse, purify, release,  cut all negative memories, blocks, energies, and vibrations.

And transmute these unwanted energies into pure light.

And it is done.

-Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona, Kahuna

Ever feel overwhelmed by your environment? Does it sometime feel like others energy soaks into your personal space? Ever catch yourself feeling exhausted, angry, irritable, moody, or sick for no reason–it just came like a sudden flood out of no where? Have you ever asked yourself why you are so sensitive to others around you and the environment?

The good news is these feelings might NOT be yours.

You may be what others call an “empath” also know as a “highly sensitive person” (HSP). Empaths are highly sensitive of the environment and energy. Often they can sense others energy and even absorb others energy. They can sense how another person is feeling just by being in proximity or seeing the person as if the feeling is in their OWN body.

The following list is provided by Michael R. Smith, Ph.D of EmpathConnection.com to help you discover if you are an empath.

You May Be An Empath If…

1. You look at someone and “just know” their emotional state.
2. You can feel the energy coming at you (or being drained) from another person, especially from the eyes.
3. You have a blocked feeling in your chest [or core], as if someone is tugging on it.
4. Tend to run away from people when stressed, rather than engage.
5. You’ve been called “oversensitive,” especially if you’re male.
6. Always know where danger may lurk. (Curiously, you may have avoided accidents).
7. Are drawn to the tranquility of animals.
8. Are drawn to mountains, nature, the ocean – anywhere outdoors.
9. Can not bear violence in any form.
10. Can easily produce tears, sometimes at will.
11. You can feel the physical aches & pains of others.
12. Feel better after a good, intense cry.
13. See things from the “bigger picture” and from “the larger scheme of things.”
14. Are overwhelmed by large crowds or mobs (e.g. shopping malls).
15. Can sometimes feel affected by the energy of the full moon.
16. Have intense, fantastic, and sometimes lucid, dreams.

If this sounds like you… You’re not alone.
