Energy Vampires

It’s not easy being an empath – even one with only mild abilities. It’s difficult to be around any type of sentient being, human or otherwise, without getting caught up in whatever emotional issues the other person is facing. Empaths are highly sensitive to the emotional energy others put out and can easily be overwhelmed and drained by the experience if they don’t take precautions and replenish themselves with alone time.

Maybe one of the worst things for an empath is coming in contact with an “Energy Vampire.” Yes, vampires are real but not all of them feed on blood. Many thrive on emotional and psychic energy and have no remorse about draining their victims dry. Even for non empaths, the energy vampire can be a terrible encounter.

You probably know or have known several energy vampires in your life – you probably just haven’t labelled them as such.

An energy vampire feeds on emotion and you can recognize their presence by the effect they have: Your eyelids become heavy, you feel unusually tired, any joy you had before the encounter is stripped from you, binging on comfort food will seem like a great idea, several encounters might make you have strange, troubling dreams. The vampire will show you no mercy and will feed upon you until you are completely drained. Then, if you manage to replenish your energy, they will return to feed upon you some more. Scary!

There are different types of energy vampires which prefer to feed on different types of emotion. Some will hunt out an appropriate victim though many will actually be drawn to you because you are giving off the correct energy pattern. If you are sad, angry, scared or hurt you might attract a vampire that feeds on that specific emotion. They will appear before you sadder, angrier, more fearful or more hurt and illicit or force a response from you – perhaps compassion, perhaps revulsion, whatever type of emotional energy the vampire desires.

The best defense is to avoid or flee from such an encounter. But sometimes this is not an option. The vampire might be someone you work with everyday, maybe a family member, or maybe some other sort of relationship that prevents you from distancing yourself from the creature.

What can you do?

First, be sure it is really a vampire and not just a one-off pathetic soul in need. Vampires are predictable with clear patterns of behavior. If it’s a vampire it is likely you will have more than one encounter and you will probably become aware of the person’s vampiric history. You might be a victim once but be prepared for secondary attempts. Next identify the type of vampire: is it trying to make you sad, angry, frustrated – what is the desired emotion the creature seeks? Once you determine that, you will be able to deny it the energy it wants.

Stay calm and maintain keen awareness. It is emotion they seek – don’t give it to them. Circumstances might require you to fulfill some sort of societal requirements by spending time with the creature but that doesn’t mean you have to feed it. Avoid having your buttons pushed. Recognize what the creature is after and when you feel yourself being drained interrupt their pattern. If they want sadness, tell them you’ve never really felt that way or tell them a bad joke to break the mood. Frustrate them with your own calmness. If they don’t leave, suddenly remember something else you have to do – but tell them you want to talk to then again, later. Next time you see them, they will be forced by their own condition to start over from the beginning. This gives you time to come up with another way to break their pattern and deny them the energy they need. Very soon they will move on to a more compliant victim and leave you alone. This will become someone else’s problem, to be sure. However, society limits the level of response we can use to defend ourselves in these situations: we cant use the proverbial wooden stake on them.

Now, if you’re an empath, even normal people can drain you of energy and fill you with unpleasant emotions.  So, empaths must train themselves to limit their exposure to other people’s issues. Practicing meditation and self-awareness is the best protection from negative emotional influences.

Goodbye Handshake?

I’m not a big fan of shaking hands – or touching people in general. I have some mild empathic abilities and I find that touching people gives me access to their inner spiritual energy and complexes. Most people have some spiritual issues and, as compassionate as I might want to be, I don’t really like randomly dealing with all that confusion and pain.

However, I do recognize that the handshake is of great importance and significance to people, generally, and to those of Western culture, specifically. Even without developed empathic abilities, grabbing someone’s hand or arm, just like staring deeply into someone’s eyes, puts you in contact with more than the mere physical aspect of the person. Anyone can get a better sense of another’s personality and psychic state by touching them – even if they don’t understand why.

This, I believe, is the real reason the handshake is, perhaps, the most widely used gesture of greeting. And why losing the handshake out of fear of “the pandemic” is a major loss to culture – particularly the culture of the West.

The origins of the handshake are a mystery. Some think it originated in prehistoric times as an indication that people meeting together were peaceful in that they carried no weapons in their hand.


The handshake does not seem to be common in the East where bowing is more the norm. Will bowing become the norm in the West?

What seems to be one of the first depictions of a handclasp is found in a carving from the 9th century B.C. showing an Assyrian king and a Babylonian king sealing an alliance with the gesture. The 8th century B.C. poet, Homer, mentions the handclasp in the epic poems The Iliad and The Odyssey in connection with pledges of trust. In 5th century B.C. Greek carvings, there are depictions of deities clasping hands to indicate a bargain. And the Romans also appear to have used the gesture in this ritualistic way.

Interestingly, the practice was always used to indicate equal status. Deities shook hands with deities, kings with kings, warriors with warriors and so on. A king would never shake hands with a peasant. The handclasp was reserved for people within the same social status. Is this because the psychic energy experienced during the handshake would be too disturbing between people of different families or classes?

Whatever it’s original intention, the handshake really only became a common form of greeting within the past 500 years due largely to the Western concept of an egalitarian society. The idea that everyone was intrinsically equal meant that everyone should shake hands with everyone else. It was rude not to because to avoid such contact meant you believed yourself to be better than others – better not just different. Today, for example, it would be politically unwise for the President of the United States to refuse to shake hands with even the humblest of citizens. Whereas in England, since “class” is still a matter of birth, it is considered inappropriate for a “commoner” to shake hands with a titled individual, much less the Queen. Shaking hands actually appears to force people to agree that they are equal. And this, I think, is a good thing.

Thus, even though I don’t particularly want to touch anyone at random, I still believe that the hand shake serves a powerful purpose in creating bonds of commonality and unity amongst people of all economic and social strata. Losing the ritual handshake because of the dictates of an authoritarian sub-class of the population is a grave injustice and insult to civilization itself.

Cancel Culture Update

In my last post I asked “who will be cancelled next?” Well, it didn’t take long to get an answer. In the past week several people have been cancelled – most notably Pepe Le Pew, a character who might never work again thanks to the cancel culture militia.

More relevant to me, however, are the many films that have now been placed on a conveyor belt to the furnace. Big studios and film distributors have decided (after consultation with Leftist social justice warriors) that some movies are not fit to be seen by decent people. These pictures will now carry a warning label or a taped introduction condemning the works for what George Orwell would call the crime of “wrong think.” The films don’t live up to the current standard of Leftist morality.

You might be wondering, if the movies are so bad, why are they being shown at all – why aren’t they just destroyed or placed in a vault forever like the Oscar winning film “Song of the South” from 1946?

Well, there’s an old joke – a bad joke – that might explain it. It goes like this:       

A travelling salesman goes to a farm and notices a pig with a wooden leg limping around. He says to the farmer, “what’s up with the pig?”

The farmer says, “See that pig – that pig is amazing. Last month there was a fire and the pig woke us all up and rescued us from the flames. We’d all be dead if it wasn’t for that pig. He’s a hero.”

The salesman says. “Wow. But what’s up with the wooden leg?”

And the farmer says, “well, a pig like that – you don’t EAT all at once.”


But it illustrates why the movies are not being destroyed or buried right away.

You see, these are Classic films, prize winning films, films that have been enjoyed by audiences for generations and are consistent money makers. Even soulless studio executives pretending to be “woke” don’t want to go broke. They’ll milk these cash cows for a few more years and hope there will be a change in the political climate before they have to enact a final solution. Slapping a warning label on them, advising that no one should actually approve of these productions, is a wishy-washy way of virtue signalling.

Anyway, here’s a list of a few of them you might want to check out or check up on before they are gone forever.

Who Will be Cancelled Next?

Leftists will try to tell you that “Cancel Culture” isn’t a real thing – and that, even if it is real, it is NOT the same as censorship because it isn’t being done by the government so there’s nothing to worry about.

True to a point. In the time of Joseph Stalin (a hero of Leftists and authoritarians everywhere), governments really did practice an extreme form of Cancel Culture – they could effectively make some people DISAPPEAR – not just kill them but ERASE them from history.

Stalin – King of Cancel Culture

Today, democratically elected leaders (whatever that means) don’t have to get their own hands dirty with the messy stuff that might upset their constituents (donors) – they have a whole army of so-called “free market” allies that are delighted to help get rid of anyone that doesn’t reflect the New World Order Party line. Entities, such as Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook, Twitter, GoFundMe, EBay, PayPal, network television, cable television, the fake news media, Hollywood celebrities, the late-night talk show hosts, etc. – all are happy, without even being asked, to take a turn at deleting inconvenient people from the public eye. And, although it is currently people claiming to be “Liberals” who do most of the cancelling, “Conservatives” also have done their fair share of erasing history.

Whoever you are, if you are fighting to ban books and shut people up for political reasons you are on the wrong side of history.

Some people have been on a “cancel culture” hit list for years – Shakespeare, Columbus, Wagner – to name a few:  but they’ve proved themselves to be resilient. More recently, Leftists have set their sights on cancelling various past leaders such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln(?!) and Theodore Roosevelt as well as Winston Churchill, Sir John A. MacDonald and, of course, Donald J. Trump. Statues and portraits of these people, as well as buildings, streets and parks named after them, are all being threatened with removal. Why? Because they don’t reflect the will of the Party in charge, they don’t conform to the current standards of “Wokeness.”

For readers of my posts, I must explain that “wokeness” has absolutely nothing to do with what I advocate when I suggest that people “Wake Up.” Claiming to be “woke” is just wrapping yourself up in a brightly colored veil of illusion and delusion. To actually be “Awake,” on the other hand, is to be free of the nonsense associated with Leftist cult ideology and other extremist views. Leftists claim they operate from a spiritual base but ignore the fact that demons and Lucifer himself are spiritual beings.

Who’s currently on the chopping block?

Well, Elvis Presley’s house was recently attacked by BLM activists. John Wayne is constantly under threat. Books like Huckleberry Finn, To Kill a Mockingbird, Gone with the Wind and the” Little House” stories, among many others, are barred from classrooms unless heavily redacted. Popeye and Bugs Bunny cartoons are savagely edited before they are aired – if they are shown at all. And when was the last time you saw the Little Rascals or the Dukes of Hazzard on television at all? Shows like The Brady Bunch, Gilligan’s Island, the Beverly Hillbillies, the Muppet Show and other classic programs are only shown accompanied by warning labels – soon they will be gone as well. Product lines that have been around and enjoyed for decades such as Aunt Jamima, Uncle Ben’s, and Land O’Lakes have all gone through a re-branding process to be “less offensive.” Mr. Potato Head is under attack and Dr. Seuss is being vilified.

Many people currently in the public eye are terrified that they will also be cancelled – careers ruined, lives destroyed – if they don’t toe the Party line. One random Tweet from 10 years ago is enough to have an actor banned from Hollywood if he or she was already suspected of “wrong think.”

Laventiy Beria, the head of Joseph Stalin’s secret police, is reported to have said, “You bring me the man and I’ll find you the crime.” This is the standard operating procedure for the cancel culture militia – choose a public or private figure you can’t control and then find something about that person that can be labelled as offensive – then you can cancel them with public support. No one is truly safe, though some people can be protected as long as they are considered useful to the Party.

So, who will be next? Maybe me; maybe you.

Cancel Culture will not stop on its own until, as George Orwell wrote, “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every date has been altered … History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”
