"When one becomes drained by others, by their environment, by non-physical parasites or by entity overshadowed - it is natural for the human being to become hungry for energy to replace their own. This isn’t done intentionally for the most part - but rather as a self-defense program that runs unconsciously. When one is in a state of depletion their body will starve for this energy - without a healthy energy flow its’ like one’s own energy and state of being become desaturated and it hungers the soul.
To combat this, the person’s autonomous energetic centers will kick into survival mode and re-adjust itself accordingly. Often one grows what can be likened to tentacles from a person’s energetic field that will latch onto another person’s energy to feed just as a vampire of folklore. This is the root of manipulative behavior and sociopathic tendencies. These people may often present themselves as victims constantly, live within constant drama and can become severely emotionally desensitized or depressed. These are all acts which allow feeding to occur often unbeknownst to the person performing the draining.
This is not to say that there are not those that do not feed consciously. Often those involved in darker and more chaotic occult activities constantly sacrifice a lot of their own personal energy - which they know that they will need to replenish. Those who consciously target others create weapon-like hooks within their aura which they harpoon into other individuals.
Often these psychic vampires have both tentacles and hooks as being the victim and the aggressor are linked hand and hand. You know psychologically that abusive patterns are passed on if not stopped consciously. A parent that abuses their child were often children that were abused in a very similar way for example.
It would be beneficial to perform psychic hygiene exercises daily as well as energetic shielding, especially before going to bed. If you come across a vampire or victim of a vampire, it is best to remove their hooks, tentacles, cords, etc., guide them through soul retrievals to fix auric fragmentation and to help them connect to the Earth Mother and Great Spirit’s source energy to fill up their energy again followed by teaching them shielding and protection techniques. Most importantly though, they need to see the patterns in their lives, their interactions with others and what serves them and what doesn’t - so that they do not slip back into the same patterns.”
