Ray: What if you are an energy vampire? Can you change?
Judith: In my talks, I talk about energy vampires, and yes, some people come up to me and say, “I think I am one. What can I do about it?”
It’s so wonderful and touching. They’re honest, and I think that’s beautiful.
I also have patients who come in who are energy vampires. I help them plug up the hole basically.
Sometimes it’s a trauma from the past, so you have to get to the bottom of it. Sometimes it just takes a good meditation practice to solidify inside and that changes the energy.
There are many different reasons why people are vampires, and it’s basically because they feel they don’t have enough energy of their own, and so they need to take from others.
It’s almost an addiction, like a drug addiction. You take it to fix something. I take energy from you to fix me as opposed to going inside and finding out what’s going on.
So you can work in psychotherapy or do intuitive work, energy work, or spiritual work. All of these can help if you’re an energy drainer.
It takes a very honest person to admit that, though.
