Psychic Vampires

Updated on May 7, 2013

What are they?

Have you ever been in a room with other people and found yourself feeling tired, having a headache or even being a little off-balance and couldn't figure out why? Well take a look around you. Someone could be tapping into your energy. If you know somebody with whom every time you get together you find yourself excessively tired afterwards, chances are they may be a psychic vampire. Unlike popular opinion about possessions, where you need to be weak or give permission in some way for the entity to take hold, there is no such restrictions on psychic vampirism.

Some people do not create enough energy on their own for day-to-day activities. In order to make it through the day, these people drain the energy of those around them to use for themselves. This can be done with or without the knowledge of either the victim or the perpetrator. These people are known as Psychic Vampires, Psionic Vampires, Energy Sappers, Soul Suckers and other such names.

How it works.

We all know that matter is composed of energy. Energy is all around us. It flows through us. Energy is used and replaced as needed by food, rest and other factors, and provided we are healthy, our bodies will maintain an equilibrium of that energy. Psychic vampires, however, are unable for whatever reason to produce enough energy to replace the energy used in their daily activities. As a result they loose that equilibrium and they look, consciously or not, for a way to supplement their energy level.

Anyone can learn to take energy from others, however the psi-vamp has a need and craving to acquire more energy and often do so without even knowing it. The usual source to pull from is another human being. This can occur through various processes including eye contact, physical touch, astral means and others. Another source could be the surrounding environment including radio waves, ultra violet, infra red, and the rest of the electromagnetic spectrum. If this source is used, then radios, cell phones, computers and other electronic devices may not function properly around the psi-vamp. In most instances, whether drawing from other people or the environment, the psychic vampire reaches out with astral threads or “tentacles” for its source and drains it of its energy.


The victims of a psychic attack can have different and varied reactions. Most victims are usually excessively tired after being around a specific person for any length of time, after an uncommonly vivid dream which may indicate an attack while asleep, or after an intense and/or traumatic interaction with someone. Other effects range from minor headaches to severe migraines, and from minor upset stomach to severe abdominal cramping. Some victims may experience light heartburn to a possible stroke, or minor fatigue to paralyzing immobility. Normally a victims aura will be affected by an attack. A victim's aura is often covered with telltale black splotches, sometimes with black tentacles leading back to the psi-vamp. These tentacles are only present during the actual feeding.

The victims can almost always recover with plenty of rest and nutrition, and the effects of the feeding are usually short in duration. However once a person has been victimized, it may cascade into a vicious cycle. The victim is left weakened by the attack, which impedes their ability to defend against further attack. This weakened state then makes them an easier and tempting target for more feedings by either the same or other psychic vampires. If the person is routinely and repeatedly victimized, they may interpret their constantly drained state of energy as an inability to make enough of themselves and in turn, may actually turn to psychic vampirism as well. Again, all this could be happening with no one being consciously aware of what is going on.

What you can do.

So what can you do to stop it? To protect yourself you first must be aware if you are being attacked. To do this, you need to be aware of your environment. Develop an awareness of your own energy and Self. Meditate. Learn to interpret your body's signals. It tells you when you burn your hand. It tells you when you're hungry. It even tells you when you're too hot or too cold. We all know what these signals are and how they feel so well that we don't have to think about it. Your body tells you when you're being victimized by psychic attack as well, and with practice and time you will learn to interpret these signals as well. Focus and become attuned to your body's subtle reactions to the environment around you.

Recovery is simple. Relax, eat and sleep. If you always feel drained or tired after spending time with a specific person, and you think he or she may be a psychic vampire, the best thing you can do is stay away from that person for a while. Keep a regular sleep schedule. Eat nutritious and well balanced meals. Meditate and relax. Take time for yourself if possible and keep stress to a minimum so that your body can produce enough to build up your energy reserves. The best overall advice is to just be aware of your Self and your surroundings.

      i assume it feels the same as being drained. hungry tired depressed.

      try doing situps when attacked, the psi vamps cant stand when you protect your electro magnetic energy field like that. also smoking weed helps. because that frequency is not the right kind of energy for a vamp.

      OMG! I think my grandmother is a psychic vampire. She always starts arguments when she's tired and if you argue with her long enough you leave the argument tired and she is full of energy but if you don't argue or get excited in any way she eventually just falls asleep. She also always said how she can do things, not with her own power or ability because she says she don't rally have any but rather with others power and ability. She said that it's especially easy with children because you can persuade them so easily. She told me she found an old book, it was an old book of shadows she found setting on top of a sideways refrigerator at a location she was lead to in a dream in Florida after her husband died, the difference was hat in the dream there was a single wide trailer there and in reality there was nothing but debris, you could not even tell there had been a trailer there. She arrived there right after a severe rain storm and the area was a wreck like a tornado had hit there, she said she found the book lying on top of the old sideways fridge, it looked almost brand new even though you could tell it centuries old and it was laying open and the pages were flapping in the wind, strangely enough even though it had just rained the book was not even wet damp and it just so happened to be opened to a section called Of Life and Death' and opened to what appeared to be a spell that required the sacrifice of a baby to bring back the recently deceased. She said she took the book because it was at the sight the dream lead her to and read it, some of it was in an ancient language she could not understand so she decided against trying to read that aloud but she was intrigued by the Voodoo secton even though she didn't believe it and decided to make sock puppets of those who she didn't like and burn them, the first one nearly lost her children, the next one died, and the last one went insane and killed his baby. Eventually a lady who claimed to be the Devils wife befriended my grandmother and later a wicked man who resembled Jesus joined in, the wicked man chose to read from the section written in the ancient language and was said to have read it like a well seasoned preacher even though he was in his early 20s and then the candles they had lit blew out and the power went off, there was scratching noises on the walls and a shadow was seen passing the room that resembled a tall woman in a long black robe/ Victorian style dress thing, the dogs started going off and everybody vacated the house until morning. My mother, aunt, and an infant child were all in the house at the time, my mother remembers everything. The next day they went back to the house and burned the book then decided that was good enough so they stayed the night, a tall woman in a black robe was seen passing down the hall that night and the next morning the infant turned up dead. The mother was the woman who claimed to be the devils wife and she showed no emotion, she was later seen wearing a long black robe as she left, it waved as she walked, it was her night gown and went all the way up her neck like a Victorian dress but the authorities said that the child died of crib death, in other words it just stopped breathing. My grandmother moved out of the house and every person who ever lived there would hear a baby crying in the room the child died and some claimed to see blood running down the walls of the room where they set up the makeshift pulpit, lit all the candles, and read the book and even burned the sock puppets and various other things like papers with people's names on it. The kitchen is where a Ouija board had been set up and every once in a while things started flying around in there according to what the locals say today. The book was burned in the back yard, the house was abandoned and months later they went back to the place, the grass had grown waste high and was dry and so brittle they made a trail when they walked through it at this point, the meter was removed and you could clearly see on the outside that not a single living being had been to the house, not even an animal, since it was abandoned by the last family after the father beat his child's head into the wall because he heard a baby crying in the back room. Strangely enough the house was extremely clean on the inside, the beds were made, and the electric appliances were hooked up and everything was arranged neatly and even the beds were made like someone was living there and had electricity. The house had been abandoned, like I said before. Anyway, every since those days my family has had horrible luck with finding love or happiness and my grandmother has drained anybody of energy she could get into an argument with. I can even recall being attacked by some sort of demon when I started going to church and praying and a psychic said the demon was attacking because he wanted me to lose my job and get fired so I would have to go back to my family and leave my church since I was not from that state and the demon did not want me involved in the Iraq or Afghanistan wars as a soldier anymore because I had saved too many lives behind the scenes with my work. but before deployment that same psychic told me to 'trust my intuition' so I did and since I worked in intelligence at the time my unit managed to capture more insurgents and a lot of ambushes and IED attacks were avoided by my work except for when I couldn't prove what my intuition said would happen; you see you can't make assessments based on feelings in intelligence and if you claimed to be psychic you would get a psychological discharge for being insane like the guy who claimed to be a werewolf or the last analyst who said he was right because he was psychic. I can even remember avoiding being struck by a bullet once when I had a strong feeling to move over one foot and it went past me and struck the nearby wall and another time I had a strong feeling not to go on a convoy and it was struck by an IED and another when I had a feeling not to join a team and my replacement was struck by a sniper round in his leg and had to go home. Anyway, you can't really play psychic analyst but it does help to have some sort of intuition when looking for clues about what might happen in the future because if you have a feeling something might happen and find the evidence that it will then you can prevent it a lot faster. I've not felt very strong though since that dream where a demon attacked me and ripped out my heart and then my grandmother had to stay with me because she lost her home, something about her gives me a headache sometimes and makes me tired and when I'm feeling really strong and doing good she isn't so she starts an argument with me and the headaches eventually come back and I feel drained or she starts one with my brother and the same affect occurs as though she had drained me. Long story short, something happened when my grandmother had that book and I think she became a psychic vampire and furthermore she somehow managed to curse the family but thankfully my intuition still works when I really need it and my mothers is still strong, actually stronger since my grandmother moved in with me and 1000 miles away from her. If I could just get this all straightened out I can fix a lot of problems and do a lot of good; I was born to do that. My name translates to Yeshua, I was born to serve and protect people and that's what I'm going to do, I'm going to save people as soon as I get my family fixed and save them. I'm close believe it or not and my time to rise and do what I was put on this earth to do is drawing very near. I assure you God's will shall be done no matter what because even if I am physically destroyed my mission this time is clear, serve and protect people. I love you all, may God bless you and keep you.

      Jane, if all three were vamps, you may want to ask yourself what is it about yourself that attracts them in the first place? I'm glad you found some advise you can use, but don't forget to work on why you keep ending up with them. It's part of working on the whole picture.

      Me and my mom are psyvamps. I know because its in my family. I can take over headakes and the people around me and my mom feel tired. Also when we are surounded by nature, we feel realy good, becouse of the natural energy around us. My question is; Do you (other psyvamps) feel that you'r watched by "normal" people? I just ask myself what the hel is so special about us that everyone stares at us like we're going to harm them? Can normal people feel that we are psyvamps?

      Hey, anonymous... Thanks for making me feel bad about something I can't control. It's not like we can just up and stop whenever we feel like it. Our body is taking energy from everything around us constantly, whether we want it to or not.

      i was in this mess for since last year due to some upsetting events that keep happening which in the end i become both the vampire energy and victim =S

      Anyway it took me a whole year before i finally figure out how to actually solve both side but it is quite lengthy and can be very tough especially on the side of vampire energy.

      currently i'm on the road of recovery and see some positive result.

      victim side

      1. clothes colour that balance your chakra. blue, black and white . blue is good especially you need energy for your work immediately while black / white may took longer time as it will provide energy to much more place in your body.

      2. crystals/item that protect and heal your aura at the minimum. you may need crystals that can balance your main chakra.

      3. best to cut off your connection with negative people especially those who actually in a way would try to hurt you just to sap your energy.lavendar oil is good if you are planning to create a loving and peaceful environment as it helps everyone balancing chakra and heal aura over longer period.

      vampire energy:

      1. stop committing anything that create negative situation, emotion, thought or action (include behavior that can harm others). Replace it with things that promote positive and good feeling. lavendar (for overall positive mood) and green jade (for positive virtue thought).

      2. apply victim side rule no.1 and 2 for faster healing.

      *being a vampire energy for too long can bring danger to the people that are close to you(friends, family or even someone who happen to be passing by) as they may experience mental disorder or other various health issue as a result of insufficient energy.

      This is a short summary of what i been through as i had been making a topic in my blog regarding this based on my own experiences , research and testing some ways to solve this. I am about to leave this negative situation soon and thus my finding may end in a month or two.

      tuck some amethyst (cleanse and charge ) into your pillow to promote good sleep.

      hey everyone

      so im new to this whole thing, and i really think i might be a psi vamp. i live in a a rural area, and whenever i go to a city, i feel so alive and empowered. i feel much better when i'm around a larger group of people, but if im just hanging out with a one or two friends they tire very quickly. im worried im draining them! will this hurt them? can i stop it? i also can't sleep the night of the full moon, ever. this has happened ever since last year, my 16 birthday. am i crazy!?

      Be careful what you believe in folks! Not everything online is true! Make no mistake, I'm a psi-vamp as well, but I've found so many things that are fake, you can't really tell anymore. One of the best places to look for help is you're inner self. There you'll find all the answers. I did, and look where I am now. I'm a healthy Psi-vamp living a helthy life, or reltively. (I'm not sure about all the sweets I ate today ;) )

      Hi, my name is Soul as u can see. i have became fully aware that i am a psi vampire. To me regular feeding or soul sucking is childs play. I am now working on inhancing now just the feeding but other abilitys i have researched. And not anyone can learn how to take someones energy. Me and a few other psi vamps have tried to teach my cousin how to do it but to this day he can not and he's been trying to every day for the past 2 years and still fails. So that part is false. Psi vampires can become more than just soul suckers. They just have to learn how.

      Many people who are psi-Vampires do not realize what they are until friends and family start commenting about how drained they feel after spending time in the psi-Vampire's company. If you are concerned about draining someone too much of their Lifeforce, make sure you don't spend too much time around that person. Giving that person some "downtime" will allow them to generate some more Lifeforce.

      In truth I have know that I can steel the energy from anything/body at will, I tend to feed when people have a high amount of anger, saddness, hate......I have tried to change my feeding habits but it hard, Im still new to this and Im trying to learn more, I really don't like being called a Psychic Vampire because it just sounds so childest, but the truth remains if anyone can help me I would be glad to hear what they have to say my email is, also I guess I would be willing to take questions, But I wish to learn more then anything.

      If you are a Psy Vamp and have issuse controlling your energies, giving or taking, then wear silver and/or magnetized hematite. Just be carefull with the silver, wearing too much can overwhelm you... assuming it has the same effect on you as it did me. The hematite would be optional.. it stops the surges in my Im free on IM most of the time.. i don't know much.. only about myself really.. i don't look up vampire info.. but someone called me a funny name and i was trying to search for where it came from and what it means (if i can ever remember) But if i can be of any help go for it.

      I have too much energy sometimes, and therefore have to be very careful, as I can attract energy Vampire (as you call them) I always use the term energy pirate, as its not so harsh and derogatory. Mainly, because many people don't know they do this to people.... I have a friend of 20years, who has no idea that she drains the life force out of people, its sad really...and the more I read about this subject the more fascinating it gets. As for my friend, well, needless to say I spend very little time with her now, and when I do I protect myself. Oddly, since I've done this - our relationship has dwindled.

      hey im a psi vamp and its true about us taking energy but for me it depends on what mood im in for what energy i drain. if im in a good mood i drain bad energy to make people feel better but if im in a bad mood it's the other way around. i also used to get migranes when around a lot of people from all the energy but subconsciencly learning to develop shields. Also for some reason most of the time people don't get sleepy around me but they do get excited (it might be from draining bad energy like depression)

      In theory a psychic vampire can drain anything around it that has a living life force going from trees to humans to pets animals and even grass. Its pretty interesting the theories on this. Also if you think about it psychic vampires could be just a term for someone that drains people that uses a lot of psi energy.

      I believe there's validity to this--that certain people drain your energy, possibly impacting on your aura. I've read that they will take others' energy when their own levels are diminished.
