[ Episode 4 Recap ] Energy Vampires & Protecting Your Energy

Have you ever been in someone’s presence, be it online or in close proximity, and start to feel uneasy?  You may start to notice tension throughout your body, your stomach may be in knots, your breathing may become erratic.  Well, if you notice those small but subtle changes, you have been bitten by an Energy Vampire!  Beware…

According to Dr. Sophie Henshaw in How to Avoid Being Drained By Energy Vampires, “Energy vampires are emotionally immature individuals who have the sense that the whole world revolves around them. They are almost incapable of seeing things from another person’s perspective. They often lack empathy. They believe that they must take everything they can get from others and that giving anything will deprive them of essential resources.”

As we’ve discussed in previous episodes, stress and MS are a dangerous combination. Imagine the stress that energy vampires wreak on one’s system! When you’re dealing with MS, you’re already operating with a deficit — dealing with someone who drains you, instead of refilling your cup, can be damaging to your spirit (and manifest in your body). Take care to avoid them! Or, at the very least, be aware of this type of person (or situation) and keep your distance.

It’s important to recognize when your personal space has been invaded, because your body will tell you when toxic energy is unwanted.  In the podcast, we talked about a couple of techniques to help keep the negativity at bay.  Meditation and body scanning are always easy ways to escape the “bite.”  If you’re curious about how to incorporate relaxing or energy blocking techniques take a look at the link below.


We want Myelin and Melanin to be a place where you find information that is beneficial to your life.  Remember, avoid the bites and stings that energy vampires can bring!

Love, light & awareness! 🙂
