How to Be Free of Other People’s Bad Energy

My Spirit Care, 25 Years of Psychic and Spiritual Advice for Thousands of PeopleWhy is it that some people make you feel awful just by being around them? Often, it’s an energy thing. Their energy field can bring you down.

Worse, it can happen that their bad energy follows you. It clings to you. You can’t seem to shake the creepy or depressed feelings or the physical symptoms–like cold skin or a dull headache–that come from having been near them.

When I was young, I knew a woman who was an invasive hugger, but what she gave others with her hugs wasn’t the warm fuzzies! She gave ice. Auric ice. She made me cold to my core, and from the tip of every hair to the center of every cell. An energy vampire of expert skill, she drained the life force from everyone she touched and she did it as often as she could reach out and grab another warm body. Sometimes the energy ice would last for hours, and many years later, when I saw her for the last time, she was still vampirizing the life force out of everyone around her.

Learn to Energetically Recognize Yourself from “Other”

People who are spiritually sensitive are more subject to noticeable symptoms, but everyone can be affected by another person’s bad energy even when they’re not aware of it. Many of our readers are empathetic, good people who feel the emotions of other people and the energies of places. Empathic people pick up other people’s feelings and physical problems very easily, and if they don’t know better they can perceive someone else’s energy as their own. One of my clients told me this story:

“I went to my next door neighbor’s house to visit an elderly woman, to offer consolation after the passing of her mother. I hugged her and immediately I got this overwhelming dull, sick headache! She left the room and while I was wondering what was wrong with me, her daughter came up and said, ‘Poor mama! She gets these terrible sick headaches when she gets upset!’ I was blown away to realize I was feeling my neighbor’s headache!”

By being aware of your own aura, you are taking the first step to manage the energies you allow, or don’t allow, into your life. Mindfulness is the key, awareness is the answer. You have your own energy signature. No one else is the same as you in this way. By taking the time and awareness to feel your own consciousness, you are tuning into what is “you” so then, you will also be aware of what is “not you.”

Some people, maybe you, reading this have felt the presence of a departed loved one or another spirit at some time. How is this possible, that you can recognize the presence and identity of a spirit? You can do this because every being has a unique energetic frequency; you included, that is unmistakable. When you become aware of your own Light body, aura, or energetic frequency, (all interchangeable terms) you will no longer confuse your own energy with someone else’s.

Be prepared, though. Keeping your own energy up and vibrant and free of other people’s negativity requires a conscious, deliberate, disciplined effort. It’s an easy choice, really, because by doing so you will experience what it is to feel truly alive, and truly free. Joy and freedom, spiritual, mental, physical health and aliveness to your core is what you will get.

These are the rewards of one who will consciously work to honor and protect their own sacred space, their auric boundaries.

Walk in a Bubble of Light Daily

At the start of each day, before you leave the sanctuary of your home or room, have a Light Bubble meditation exercise, or any one of the exercises mentioned on this site that places a Light barricade around your own aura. Reinforce this in your mind during the day, and especially when contact with undesirable energies can’t be avoided.

Use Discernment about Physical Contact

Most people, unaware of spiritual reality, have auras that are open and defenseless against invasion by other energies. When they have indiscriminate contact with others, such as hugging out of mere politeness, they are vulnerable to unwanted energetic exchange.

Likewise, many people don’t know there is no such thing as “casual sex.” During sexual activity, the aura is wide open and vulnerable to whatever energies are attached to the other person. Many a person has acquired negative energy, which adversely affects their life, from one-night stands and a “friendship” with “benefits.”

While this is a spiritual truth and a practical fact that is not popular in a culture that prides itself in sexual liberation, not all that is called “progress” is truly progress! If you are going to have sex with an essential stranger (someone you have not entered into a commitment with and that you do not really know that well) then the use of conscious auric protection is essential, even though this won’t be enough over the long haul. The only answer is: if you can’t have heart-centered sex with someone you truly know and truly love, don’t!

Make an Energetic Safety Zone When You Are Around People in Trouble

There are wonderful people in this world who like to take in stray puppies…and stray people. They step up to the plate to help troubled folk, which is noble, but not all people in need of a helping hand are good for you to be around. There are safe ways to help, and there are personal boundaries. Opening your life, your wallet, your house, your most personal spaces to the refugees of the world also opens your aura to an assortment of energies you may not be prepared to deal with. When you offer help of this nature, be mindful of the energies that are you and the energies that belong to the other person and keep your energetic boundaries intact.

Whenever you have involvement with people who are seriously ill, have drug addictions, alcoholic problems, psychological imbalances, psychopathic, neurotic, or severely dysfunctional behaviors, know that these beings have energies that need cleansing and you should use auric protection around yourself, otherwise you may find yourself having to deal with negative energy that has been transferred to you.

Choose Your Friends and Associates Wisely

Fact is, there are people you just should not be around! Period! Every person has their own level of tolerance and their own soul mission with regard to other people. Some of you have spiritual connections that need to be worked out with people who are challenging to be around. But remember this: never, ever are you expected by the Divine to take on other people’s energies!! Learn “self” from “other” and keep your own space sacred and inviolate. This is your spiritual duty to yourself.

Toxic relationships happen. The people you should minimize or eliminate contact with will give you certain feelings and experiences. Stay away from people who:

  1. Make you feel drained, exhausted, or give you unpleasant physical symptoms like aches, palpitations, chills, upset stomach, etc.
  2. Talk incessantly about themselves, their problems, gossip about others or dwell on negative or morbid subjects.
  3.  Demean you in any way whatsoever.
  4. Try to control you or boss you excessively.
  5. Engage in any form of deceit.
  6. Rage on about other people, their bad relationships, using hate terms and ugly or profane language.
  7. Try to pry information out of you or otherwise invade your privacy without your consent or request.

Know When to Leave and When Not to Look Back

Let’s face it: too often you keep people in your life that don’t belong there because they make you feel bad. Do something about that. You are in charge. Whether it’s a friend, family member, neighbor, whoever: if the relationship does not lift you up or contribute good things to your life, leave it! And don’t look back.

Time for a Look in the Mirror

We can’t end this article without mentioning that life often sends to us what we put out; meaning, if you want good energy from others, give good energy! Many a time I have found that those who complain the most about the bad energy of others are dripping with it, themselves! If this is a frequent problem in your life, it may be time for a good energetic cleaning within yourself, first.

By being positive and loving yourself, you are establishing a strong aura that is far less vulnerable to incoming negative energy. Like attracts like, and that’s a fact. If you are having a problem with attracting the wrong kind of people into your life and it’s been a pattern, it’s time to take the opportunity for self-reflection this brings to you. Everything in your life is geared to help you grow spiritually, and having a good attitude about bad experiences is a good way to get your life on track! 🙂

Auric and Energy Cleansing Methods

Yes, I’ll say it again: a daily spiritual practice to envision and protect your auric Light Body is absolutely essential to keeping bad energy out! Also, when you’ve had some form of contact with someone who has upset you or made you feel bad in some way; take a bath with ½ cup of salt added to it! This is your first remedy and will soothe superficial damage to your energy field.

When energetic interference from bad energy goes deeper, meditation and “decording” (which is a spiritual action of cutting cords between energy fields) can be needed. Emotional counseling may be needed to break toxic relationships apart, and certainly inner work to strengthen a healthy sense of self is almost always a necessary step toward healing.

And of course, when you need help resolving issues with bad energies from other people, it’s probably time to talk to me. I will do a clairvoyant energetic assessment and provide personal guidance relative to your situation. You can have a good life, free from the draining and damaging effects of negative energy!

        My mom has either bad/negative energy or dying energy aura. Every time I am around her or she enters the room I get a very bad creepy almost deathly and I explicitly uncomfortable energetic feeling that emanates from her aura. What is this? She does take a lot of medicines and had tumors but is apparently healthy but there is just something dead or sickly about her energy. Please help me to understand.

          Janice, I’m sorry that your mother has not been well. It appears you are picking up on the fact that she has had physical illness, yet you lack the experience to pinpoint exactly what this is. I cannot do a clairvoyant assessment of your mother in this forum, obviously! Nor would I, without her permission.

          To lift this energy, how about you give yourself a good smudging, enter her presence with a prayer of love and healing in your heart, and ask Divine Spirit to help lift your mother’s energy to one of greater vitality and healing energy. It sounds as if she needs that! (You might also, depending on her mindset, ask her if she would like to have you smudge her and her house as an act of healing and help, to bring in Divine spiritual energies to assist her.)

          You are revealing your revulsion and a degree of fear…this is a good time to work within yourself about whatever issues of death and dying that you have. Almost everyone fears death and this is something we all have to deal with at one time or another. If you will focus on Love, Janice, the fear will evaporate, and add to that a daily spiritual practice to discover your constant connection to Divine Source and the eternal nature of existence and the love that drives out fear.

    Hi Diana,

    Thanks for really great and spot on articles. I have read a bunch but is still got a question for you and would be really Happy if you Could give me some advice.

    My case: I have experienced unwanted feelings, bad presence from places here and there for serveral years. Doctors would call it stress and spiritual people bad energies for another dimensions. This also hasppens when connecting and socializing with other people, or just passing by a large group. Sometimes I get this pressure on my chest for minuters, sometimes days. I have visited doctors, spiritual healers but nothing still helps. I have always had great empathy but the last years this has triggered to something i no longer can control. The trigger Could be unwanted visitors Durling night at an apartments i hade together with other signs that were so impossible that i just had to accept that i wont know.

    Anyway. Other things in my life are great (thats what i think). Good salary, Job, education, girlfriend, friends, family, money, travels, traning, yoga, meditation, harmony (by myself or with good souls) and such. But still.

    How can i instantly handle bad energy when it happends to protect myself? Both people and “empty” places.

    Except for morning meditation and salt scrubs which really work in the moment. But not for me during the day when the energy strikes…As you write im more protected in a mental state but for me that doesnt help in quite some cases.

    Best regards
    Andy

    Hi Diana.. 🙂 your article was really self soothing to me.. It makes sense to me.. Thank you for such a great article…
    I have been friends with two very important friends whom I thought would be friends but ended up as enemies and strangers right now.. We have ended up the relationship between us and it’s been 5 months… This is one of the worst experience’s in my life till now I haven’t experienced it yet.. It hurted me very deeply to the core for leaving them because I couldn’t tolerate their behavior’s at any cost.. I feel like I was drawn into some kind of negative energies pulled towards them.. The problems errupted as when we were in relationship I started suffering from health issues for no reason which I couldn’t understand why I started vomiting, coughing, frequent fever,stomach aches, headaches always in some sort of anxious feeling and fear.. first, I thought its my negative thoughts that’s leading to unwanted problems… but finally I realized it was because of the wrong friends… I had this feeling like I have been drawn into some negative energy so I finally decided to walk away from them as soon as possible.. But I tried maintaining the relation for 2 years but it ended up as my greatest lesson’s for my life..
    But now the only problem for me is the relation is over and I stay happy but sometimes I get heavy feeling’s in chest and severe headache’s apparently for no reason irrespective of day and time I get it.. And it sometimes lasts for 2-3 days and then it finally reduces and I become completely normal and happy without any negative feeling’s.. What I want to know is.. Is it because they think about me that I get such changes in me? And next I still love them no matter how bad they treated me.. I want to reconnect but I’am way to scared that something will happen to me again because again they will start behaving negative..
    So please kindly advice me for this.. I will be waiting for your reply ma’am!! 🙂

They will spend many hundreds of hard-earned dollars on a cell phone to “keep connected” and will not spend a few dollars to help themselves be truly connected to their spiritual core, which resolves problems and leads to a joyful life.

      Priya, read the articles on personal energy cleansing here, here, and here as well as many other articles on this website. Finally, “loving” someone does not mean you should associate with them. In this case, what you call fear of reconnecting is more like common sense coming to your rescue. –Are you afraid to put your hand on the burner of a hot stove even though you really want the soup you just heated on that stove? Someone once said that the definition of insanity is to do the same thing over again and expect to get different results. Learn from experience and make a habit of putting your mind on things that are constructive to your life and stop looking back.

    Hi .. I am really thankful that I have found this post.

    Why is it that whenever I listen to a person’s voice or just being with a person whom slouches even though they dont say any harmful words to me, I feel like I am more tired? It really depressing because I can’t seem to get much done with my lack of energy.

    The story is that I am always with my 60 years old aunty and she is just not a motivating person to be with . I am planning to stop being with her . But I dont think I have the choice, if I dont have the choice but have to stay with these people , how can I handle it? By doing more yoga and exercising? thats not a habit yet.

    Hope you can help

      Ree Ree, perhaps you need to go back over this article and read it more slowly so that you understand what it’s telling you.
      Also, Ree Ree, elderly people can inadvertently make young people feel tired, either out of boredom with their company or because older people sometimes have a lower energy threshold. But there’s something more: you appear to have a habit of drawing other people’s energy from them in order to feel energized but your aunt has nothing extra to give you. As you say “…she is just not a motivating person to be with” but I ask you, why should you expect this from her? You need to develop a daily spiritual practice of protecting your aura with a Light boundary, paying attention to how much energy you take from others and how they take from you. People do this to each other all the time, not meaning harm, but when human beings are not mindful of their Soul energy they tend to try to get life energy from others. So my point is: perhaps your aunt tries to get energy from you but you may, unconsciously, also do the same to her. It’s time to discover your divine Soul and lean on that for strength and vitality. Read other articles on this website, there is guidance for you there. More in-depth guidance, Ree Ree, will require a session but do please read the article again…while you once again ask your questions and look for answers provided in the content.

    Hey Diana , we were left with my husbands grandmothers house who has recently passed. My husband has been struggling with an addiction although he doesn’t want to admit it , and he’s been telling me lately that he gets a bad feeling when he gets to the house. I have been noticing that I’ve been feeling the same way , when I leave my home I dread stepping foot back into it . We have let alot of people in our home who have stabbed us in the back and it makes it feel as if my home is not “safe”. I need some advice on what I could do to get rid of this feeling and the negative energy out of our home. Please help

      Now for you, Mariah, read my articles on smudging, here and here. Continue doing this practice if necessary–including the smudging of your family and even articles owned through inheritance–until the energy is clear and your feelings are once again peaceful. I’m certain this will make a positive difference.

    Hey Diana, im back but I just wanted to bother you with one more thing because I really do appreciate your time.. Lately I have been kind of insecure in my relationship with my fiancé. I don’t know why I have such a problem trusting people in general. I have been with him since we were very young. Since we’ve been engaged he’s never given me a reason to think he is doing something behind my back or being unfaithful. But my mentality is that eventually there is someone in the relationship who will stray (and ofcourse I don’t think it’s me) but again I don’t know why that is just the way I think. Like eventually he will lose interest or just make a dumb decision just cause he’s not happy with his life or something. And he has been at his job for over a year and he interacts with females all day (males also but obviously females is all I think about) for awhile I was pretty content in my relationship, very comfortable but then last year I was going through a tough time (it was a personal thing… nothing to do with my relationship between me and my fiancé) so I called my friends “spiritual healer” to try and calm me down with my burst of anxiety and depression that I was experiencing .. And this so called “healer” actually made matters worse. Even though it had nothing to do with my relationship and I didn’t ask anything about him … She changed the subject and asked me when we were getting married, I said maybe next summer nothing is set yet because I’m still not sure on a couple of things like a profession etc then she said “I don’t see it happening then, you should really get married this summer before things start falling apart” … That comment honestly triggered something in me to become even more depressed and anxious. I stopped talking to my best friend who gave me her number because I somehow blamed her even though I’m the one who called this lady, but I took it out on her.. Now we don’t speak. I became an emotional disaster… (I mentioned in my last comment to you how I went through a tough time and felt like I lost a lot of me) And I then had it fixed in my mind and was obsessively thinking that the reason me and my fiances relationship will “fall apart” as she said, is due to him not wanting me anymore or him stepping out with someone else, or me catching him texting or liking another female our us just in general falling out of love with eachother etc etc. I had trust issues to begin with but On top of that, hearing that comment just pushed them over the edge. And since then it’s been more then a year and I’m continuing to work on my trust for him but I can’t say I am really too good. For example: his company is having a Holiday party soon with just the employees and I really hate that he is going. It’s not even that I want to go to enjoy myself, I would want to go just to monitor every situation. Like a freaking body guard. This is no way to be. It’s not fair for him either, and I absolutely recognize that. Waking up in the middle of the night not able to sleep cause constantly worried about if your other half is being untrustworthy or unloyal but I don’t know why thats how I feel. Thank you again for your time reading this Diana.

      I forgot to mention that in general we do have a very well balanced relationship. We always try our best to be there for one another emotionally and physically. I can’t say that he’s never been there for me, because he truly always does his best to support me always. No major problems thankfully other then the occasional fight here and there but the fights we get into that are triggered from my trust problems Get really intense and really bad. He truly has become so fed up with the lack of trust :/ … Sorry again for being a pest but thanks for your time!

      Jay, step back from your thoughts. –How much time do you spend alone in simple contemplation about things other than your personal worries? –Do you ever look up at the stars and think about the immensity of existence and the miracle of your existence on this planet? –What do you deeply desire to achieve with this precious life? The kinds of things that you choose to focus on destabilizes your psyche. There is so much more to life…will you dare to expand beyond all those concerns that you allow to consume you?

        I try to focus on the beautiful miracles everyday. I used to look up at the stars randomly and felt such beauty and such a light shine through my body, I felt connected to nature and I was in touch with my soul, I absolutely felt it. My depression (I call it depression to most people but honestly I don’t know how to explain it, it didn’t feel like true depression. It was instantly out of no where one day. Like someone just snapped their fingers and BAM! It was downhill from there. It was a very powerful negative out of body experience I felt) took me down a really bad path and I lost a lot of myself and my connection to higher power and my faith. But I do hope and I believe sooner than later I will be able to stop myself from dwelling and thinking such negative thoughts whether it’s my own self loathing or the relationships with my loved ones who I value very much in this life. Thanks Diana and have a very healthy and happy holiday season and new year =)

          Hello, Dear Jay! It’s taken me awhile to respond as I’ve thought about you, considering what to say in a forum, how best to help catapult you toward healing with limited space, time, and out of context of a session. Any further advice will have to be given in session, Jay, so keep that in mind as I attempt to be thorough on your best behalf.

          Over your series of comments, a more complete picture unfolds. In a previous comment you mentioned your encounter with a healer and first off I want to say to you…and to all readers…do not ever put stock in psychic readings or “healing” sessions that send you into an emotional tailspin, that are negative and that leave you feeling despaired. All of you, understand that psychics and all people who you turn to for help are human beings like yourself, with misperceptions, flaws, egos, misdirected beliefs, and unseen motivations and influences. While there are those who are sincere, spiritual-minded people, there are others who are not, and those in-between. Even a good reading can go South when something is said that triggers intense emotional responses which are not the fault of the psychic (for if people were realistic in their dealings with psychics/healers a sufficient defense against such vulnerability would be in place) but can be an unintended backlash which brings out into the open an area of our lives in need of healing.

          If only people could know at the time of the troubling event that this is a blessing in disguise. –A tough lesson in unearned trust, given too readily; and a revelation of deeper insecurities and lack of trust in one’s self and a lack of awareness of the inherent goodness of each person’s Divine path. (There is an unseen spiritual security in each person’s life but they do not know this. I assure you it is there.) This “blessing in disguise” is what Spirit does, all the time: Spirit turns a negative event into a positive one. Most often, it’s up to the blind-sided individual to hang on and push through, because usually this amazing fact is discovered in retrospect…after the crisis is over.

          In your case, Jay, you have been set upon a very important search of self-discovery. You are fortunate. Countless millions never do this and are completely unaware of their authentic selves, living instead with the superficialities of physical life. Now, of course I understand that you feel that you have lost yourself, but this is not true…because it is literally impossible! The feeling that we have lost ourselves is not uncommon and in this, Jay, you are not alone. This is a rite of passage, a opportunity for spiritual emergence that is already underway.You are a Soul who is what it has always been: it is impossible to lose your Core self because you cannot be separated from that, anymore than you can lose yourself by running away as fast as you can. Your Soul is strong and beautiful and luminous and wise. And you are the good and positive person you always were, you have just lost sight of that, for awhile. Spiritual Emergence is difficult and sometimes feels more like a spiritual emergency. In this time, you must suspend self-judgment and be kind to yourself. You must will yourself to let go of regrets and have mercy on what you consider to be losses and shortcomings. Observing the beauty in nature will help you re-set, bring peace and blessings to your eyes and into your heart. Let yourself go silent, within. Pursue your intention to heal while soothing yourself with a spiritual poultice of love, hope, and renewal. You are being taught humility about the mortality and vulnerability of the ego-self…a gift…so embrace it and look for the good that is sure to come to you. Your job is to listen to the goodness that is your heart. Your job is to breathe through the panic mode, and allow yourself the peace of self-acceptance. Your job is to see the beauty that will heal you. Have a daily spiritual light protection practice as written on this website. Do this much without fail. And celebrate your life!!! It is the right start to a re-newed and wiser you. For all else (and there is) you will have to contact me for an appointment. Much Love to you!!

    I came across your sight after googling something a psychic told me that I wasnt sure how to undetstand it. She said ” you need to let go of that energy.its not yours” I suffer from anxiety, for years on and off. I believe its my overall health causing it. When eat right and exercise my anxiety gets a little better. Im on an antianxiety med that was working but as usual some how my anxiety breaks through. I havent been healthy or exercising. Your article made a lot of sense to me. Can you recommend a good bookor website or advise on meditation.

        Not that simple. While other people’s energy can influence, we are very complicated beings. Far more likely that there are experiences, beliefs, etc. buried within you that are causing this anxiety. We are not at all what we seem to be on the surface, but so much more. Discussions with a trans-personal therapist as to the deeper origins of this anxiety would be helpful. Best of everything to you and thanks for commenting.

      Hi, Erin and thanks for commenting. You present a complex issue and while your question to me presents itself as something of a self-diagnoses on what you think the answer might be, I ask you to read my article on meditation before you undertake a meditation practice. Begin all of your altered-state anxiety remediations with a daily spiritual protection, as explained here. Don’t skip this step in your healing as it is fundamental. Also, Erin, keep in mind that the mass consciousness of which we are all a part and connected with is in an extreme state of anxiety. This does bleed into an individual’s personal experience. Strive for balance in body, mind, and spirit. Yes, care for the body, bring balance into your thinking, perceiving, and outlook…expand your personal philosophy about life and your place in this world, avoid over-exposure to anxiety-inducing media/mind memes, have quiet personal spiritual time each day, and as I’ve said to others here, anxiety is as much about the unseen workings of beliefs and buried workings within the mind as much as it is about energy. Your struggle is a call from your Soul to “know yourself” and to find your spiritual power. When you do that, anxiety will no longer be a chronic issue. I know you can heal, and as a first step in exercising your spiritual power, ask your Divine Guidance to lead you to the next connection. For instance, you were led here! 🙂 May you come to feel the stirrings within, drawing you forward to find what you seek: healing through an awakening to your Soul

      Ella, do you really think there is a simple answer to this? There are many reasons why “relationships” (as we define them) are not happening “right now”. Best thing for you to do is to stop (sorry, honey) feeling sorry for yourself. And maybe…oh, yes…you are trying too hard to get the wrong people to accept you. Stop feeling so awful about yourself and start over with something like, “Maybe I’m better off without those people who don’t ‘want’ me, because they don’t see me for the beauty I am and they don’t know what they’re missing.”

    Hi Diana, really liked de post! thank you very much (sorry for my bad english)
    By reading this I kind of realized how afraid I am of a certain person and I though that you may be able to give me some advice…without putting too much detail into the story, let´s say there is this guy who used to be my friend, we went to highshcool together but he was extremely manipulative,mean, and for most part with really bad and aggressive vibes. He was kicked out of our school because he wasn´t taking his meds (later on we found out that he had several mental health issues, not only depression and anxiety as he used to tell us), it was because me and my friends stood up against his manipulative behaviors and told the teachers and counselor about him.
    We get rid of him,luckily, at the beginning of classes and it was a blessing for everyone (everyone of us felt the same about him, even teachers but we would say a word because he kind of brainwashed us)
    Now I found out that we are going to work at the same place. The guy hates me, he blocked me from every social media, and from what I’ve heard he blames me for what happened at school. Im really concerned about him being manipulative again and talking s*it about me with our coworkers but most importantly: because of his super bad vibes. I can ignore his hate comments (I had to before, on school) but i can definitely not ignore his vibes. You wouldn’t believe how fu*ked they are… super creepy, aggressive, invasive, and exhausting…. I think a lot have to do with his mental instability and problems, my friends tell me not to worry about him, not to give him so much power and I agree with that but I can’t stop feeling scared. I truly feel like Im in great danger when Im around him, Its something that never, EVER, happened to me before, just seeing his face makes me want to start running away from him and Im not exaggerating. Even tho I really appreciate your post and Im definitely putting your advice into practice I feel its not enough for this situation…do you think the problem is mine? would you recommend something in particular to keep me protected? you won’t believe how terrified I am of him (I know… It sounds pathetic, but still..)

    thanks you very much in advance!!

      Kelly, time for some tough love and some straight truth. You need it.

      Do you know one of the primary meanings of the word, “drama”? Let me help you. It means: “a situation or sequence of events that is highly emotional, tragic, or turbulent”. Meaning further, of course, that you (as well as others) got yourself pretty worked up over this.

      Drama is a word that generally applies to play-acting or fiction, but all-too-often the players in life build situations to a crescendo, which amplifies the energy, blows things out of proportion, and makes the possibility of a balanced outcome unlikely. In fact, drama acted out in real life is very often destructive to the characters involved and is harmful to bystanders who don’t steer clear, as well.

      You are young, and as adolescents often do (along with many adults who have adolescent personalities), you got caught up in drama. This experience is part of your life’s training, so now is your chance to learn to stay out of drama…hopefully adopting this rule as a principle to live by for the rest of your life.

      It’s time to recognize and own the things you did to make matters worse, to amplify this irrational fantasy that is building, which can make matters even worse, still.

      To begin with, you and your classmates “ganged up” on this person and no doubt gossiped frequently about him, building a horror profile as you went along. –I’m not saying you should not have taken your concerns to school authorities, but this should have been done between you and school personnel, and then not discussed ad nauseam with your friends. You joined a “click” of “us against him”…a sure way to heighten negativity in any form. You were all sending out some very undesirable vibes, a sure way to attract them right back. –If not from the source of your disdain, then from other energetic frequencies that oscillate in tandem with your own disharmonious energies…energies that are not calm and are inappropriately focused.

      At this point, you are experiencing the results of your own outpourings, not his.

      Then, for some truly inexplicable reason, you expected him to not “block” you on social media. Really, my dear, are you serious? –Really?!

      When I wrote this article a few years back, the world was a different place than it is today. As of this writing, November 19th, 2016, the world has finally arrived at the razor precipice of calamity. The swirling terror within the collective energetic mindset is congealing into a frenzy of paranoia, division, extremism, and irrationality so grave, so dire, that a genuine collective psychosis is now underway. I am not using a metaphor, here, this is not an opinion, but a fact of astonishing concern to every living thing on this planet. The crazies are in control of the asylum. The answer this time is not, “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!” but to remain sane if we are, and to somehow get sane if we aren’t. When I wrote this back then, the comments from readers reflected something very different than they do today. Today, I can see that this article appears to reinforce the present divisions and misperceptions of a stressed social collective which has been influenced to see “badness” in other human beings to an unprecedented degree. We are becoming reflexive in our judgment, our blame, our branding, and our fear. This article in no way supports any of that, but instead is meant to teach people how to conduct their lives from a point of personal power and even-handed action.

      So, Kelly, the world today gives you no stable or sane platform upon which to build your life, upon which to see goodness as the underpinning of all life. I want you to try to understand the ways in which you have worked yourself into a frenzy of fear, and the part you play in your own troubles.

      I want you to see and understand how you dehumanized this person and inflated his “badness”, sometimes sending mixed signals as you implied when you mentioned being blocked by him (were you trying to initiate contact at that point? –with someone you didn’t like?), which is a mild cruelty in itself. Most of all, I want you to understand that you cannot discover the divinity within yourself if you will not work at trying to see it within others. No one is ALL bad, as each living being has a spark of Divine life within them that animates their existence. In the worst human beings, the spark may be all but gone out, but as long as there is breath, there is a God presence in there, somewhere. It’s time for you to let this go, if you want peace in your life. He is not stalking you, Kelly, you are inviting him into your mind, begging for his presence with your terrified thoughts, and he may very well say bad things about you to others…but so what?! —So what?

      To answer your question, yes, the problem is yours. Make peace with this person in your head, learn from your mistakes, do not pretend to be a friend or try to be a friend insincerely and leave him alone. Do not gossip about him. Do not empower the negative past by living it in your mind in the present. Let this person be and get on with your job–and do a good job. Get on with your life. You say, “Even tho I really appreciate your post and Im definitely putting your advice into practice I feel its not enough for this situation” and I say, “Yes, you’re right, if you don’t get control of your own head then there is nothing that can help you because you refuse to learn.”

      If, in the highly unlikely chance that he should make a move to actually DO something threatening, report it to authorities. Otherwise, it’s time for you to recognize that it rains on the just and the unjust, the sun shines on all the crazies…including those of us who know just enough truth to confuse us, but not enough to cure us. Allow life to be, Kelly, allow other people to live as they must, (you don’t have to like it) and keep your pointing finger in your pockets.

      Hi,
      Thanks so much for the confirmation and the tip with the salt. I am new to the meta physics term but my soul taught me everything that I am now reading about and even asking about. I knew a lot of it. This is a journey that I have ben on for a very long time with thinking and feeling I as just made this way, I am an old soul who loss there soul and I am now awakening with a clear consciousness of everything around me. I can remember from 5 years of age and I’m 50 this year. I am interested in finding others like myself because I am a empath too, I cant go everywhere and when I do its only to improve me or to build up my son, I am often entertained by the energies around me and also by my 27 year old that rebirth who was an old spirit and lost control by calcifying her gland through addiction instead of channeling her powers through the sun. as I said I’m exited and glad to find others of love. please help me to find an awakening community in the area trust issues are few and the web sites in my area I am not feeling good about. I am in Louisiana if you know of anyone who will tell you of someone near me please help. and if you can help me on this journey any more I am open for suggestions Thanks for everything and your peace.

        I receive dozens of comments and appeals for help daily from thousands of daily readers and cannot possibly answer all needs. Readers need to be mindful of the limitations of a comment section as well as my policy on free readings as explained on the home page. In the comments section, we have before us a concerning truth that most cannot see: human beings have become so out of touch with their Souls that they don’t respect themselves enough to spend a few dollars to heal their lives. They will spend many hundreds of hard-earned dollars on a cell phone to “keep connected” and will not spend a few dollars to help themselves be truly connected to their spiritual core, which resolves problems and leads to a joyful life. No amount of free advice can cure this epidemic lack of self-respect, so if you have an issue that is difficult, love yourself enough to reach out through the means that I provide you.

        For you, Constance, you need to have a daily spiritual practice as written elsewhere on this website and to take your needs to Spirit for personal guidance and direction. Allow yourself to be led to find what is needed and you will find it. Your life is a learning curve and your beliefs are meant to expand as you gain more truth through study and the hard work of personal development. Not having others of like mind to associate with is indeed difficult, but you are meant to see that your spiritual development does not depend on others, but on your own heartfelt connection to the sacred within you, your own Divine Soul. In other words, recognize the fullness within and then completion in the material realm will follow. Peace and guidance be with you.

      Oh, Carla, your email address is so revealing. You take pride in being a rebel, and in that sense you are setting yourself up for the downspiral you describe. Let me explain, ever so briefly: you are young and feeling your way through life. Actually… being a rebel is a pretty good thing, except you have to know that there are consequences. With maturity, time, and experience, one learns to be a rebel without self-destructing. But early on, the symptoms are profound dissatisfaction with society that if not collared, can turn inward. This may not make any sense to you, but if you think my words over very carefully, you will begin to understand.

      The world, especially today, is very sick. But this should not make you feel sick!! Just because the world and others around you are showing a sickness of soul, don’t catch it!! 🙂 You don’t have to catch it!! You have to understand it, and with time, you will. Observe, don’t react. Learn, don’t jump to conclusions. Don’t judge harshly. Don’t criticize and condemn. Don’t get on a pedestal.

      Practice understanding, work to get the bigger and bigger picture. Ask, how can I serve this world best? What are my gifts to help others and the planet? Spend time and energy building a good life of service, and watching others receive the gifts you have to give, both big and small.

      Count your blessings, develop humility. Don’t take things for granted. Admit your own flaws and weaknesses, and learn the greatest truth of all: we are all one and we’re all in this together. The world doesn’t soil you: it conditions you. Get your hands in it an learn to love it for what it is, because I promise you there is priceless treasure in all the places you are not looking because it seems so unpleasant to look at.

      Practice love. Without love, all the “spiritual” efforts in all dimensions of time and space amounts to nothing at all. Nothing. Nothing at all.

      May you choose to know love because you have found the love you are made of, and in that, discover the love in every person who appears so negative to your ego’s eyes.

    Hi Dana, thank you so much for enlightening us all with this amazing article. Very helpful! I have some concerns.
    Two seperate psychics i have been to have told me i have “negative energy” on my aura. And that many people are very jealous of me. I do know that i have had very jealous people in my life,, and cut most of them out. However, I do not consider myself to be negative. I have had some traumatic experiences in my life, but i am extremely grateful for the good i’ve experienced and always focus on the good rather than the bad. My grandmother has some religious powers and cleanses me of the evil eye which she sees i occasionally catch ( common in my culture) My boyfriend of two years claims that ever since i came into his life he has been depressed, and claims that negative energy is rubbed off on him. However, we have broken up for months at a time, and his energy had not improved so im not sure if that even has to do with me? And also like i said, i always maintain a very positive, greatful, and generous attitude so im not sure if i am actually projecting any negativity on others. I do consider myself very emotional and empathetic.I try to picture a golden white bubble around myself along with a mirror every day, is their anything else i can do to protect or cleanse my aura in my situation? Thank you so much

      Your problem is with your beliefs, and your choices. You don’t see the contradictions going on within you, so here they are:

      Number one: Do not believe psychics who tell you such things, in fact, you need to stop going to psychics. You are too impressionable and you are being played. Meaning, they were wrong…the sure sign of fake/bad psychics is when they tell you that you have bad energy or you’re cursed, and that people are jealous of you. This is a predictable charlatan script used millions of times, and it’s as fake as it gets.

      Number two: “My grandmother has some religious powers and cleanses me of the evil eye which she sees i occasionally catch” Religious powers? This is a contradiction in terms. Religion does not bring power. In fact, psychic ability is not a “power”. This is such a common misconception. With all due respect to your culture, it’s time that you decide whether you want to know the truth about life or you want to settle for inherited superstitions and live with the consequences. You do not have “the Evil Eye”…but you, like most everyone else in this world, can benefit from an energy cleanse and a good scrubbing of your beliefs. This doesn’t make you defective, it means you’re human. –Which is a very good thing, by the way!

      Number Three: This boyfriend makes for an abusive relationship. Period. No ands, ifs, or buts. Why, my dear, do you put any stock in anything he says to you? And if you’re still speaking to him at all…not good for you.

      Number Four and Most Important: Despite your assertion that you see the good over the bad, that’s not what you are demonstrating with what you wrote. You don’t know how to be a good friend to yourself!! You line up to be abused, you look for it and then you lay down for it.

      Our beliefs and our choices are entwined, meaning that for you, it’s time to see that what you’ve been willing to believe has caused you to suffer. The Divine endowed you with the same inner truth and right to exist as anyone else in this world. It’s time that you honor the Divine by honoring yourself, loving yourself, and stop taking other people’s word that you are a negative person. The lesson here is for you to come to your own defense and really start to trust more in love and light than evil and darkness, especially your own love and light. This will transform your life and lead you to fulfill greater things than you have ever imagined possible.

      I hope you will make the change. You are a beautiful being so own it.

    Dear Diana,

    I really would appreciate a suggestion on my situation. I am in a terrible financial state and lately my optimism is leaving me. I live in a European country with bad economy and heavy taxation for the last 8 years. I have a morning job and in the afternoons I teach yoga. All my income is going to pay enormous taxes, bank debt from my previous unconscious living and bills. I struggle to buy everyday necessities. This is going on for 4 years now. I have a strong daily spiritual discipline, I do prosperity meditations and I work as much as I can. I know they do work, money is coming in but it goes to pays debts. This is a life without joy. My boyfriend is also unemployed for two years now so I pay everything in the house as well. Is there something I am missing? Is there a dynamic at work that I fail to see? I am so tired of this situation dragging on. Thank you for listening to me.

      Hi, Lilly. I simply cannot provide much help in a comment forum. In addition, I receive dozens of comments per day and there are time limitations. I will tell you that you are in an economic boat shared my millions upon millions of other people: and we haven’t seen the worst of it in this world. We face challenges, and it is up to us to decide right here and right now that discouragement/despair is not an option. We may feel we deserve a break, and surely we do…but it doesn’t come and then what? Keep on, keeping on!!

      In your situation, however, I detect some self-infliction happening. There are things you can do to change things that you are avoiding. Your debts…there are probably other options. Your boyfriend…now wait a minute! You need to rethink this over very carefully. There are jobs he can get…may not like them…but something he can do to carry his own weight and if this is a real relationship, some of yours. If not, my dear, then it’s time to call a spade, a spade.

    Hi,

    I have evidence that my husbabd is using prostitutes.

    He lies, is remorseless, and sees nithing wrong with it.

    He keeps saying he’s not, but there’s slways evidence.

    I am not yet in a position to divorce due to lack of support and finances.

    Meanwhile he wants us to continue as if everything is normal.

    The deception is destroying me inside as I know his thoughts are impure and continuous, and I sense this constant stream of deception towards me.

    Can you offer any tips on how to protect myself from this continous harmful stream of deceit piercing my aura?

    Thanks

    Hi Diana, I hope you are well. Sorry to be a bother but lately I just feel like my soul and spirit need to be cleansed of all the negative energy. From work, home life, my in laws, my fiancé and my personal struggles. It’s just a lot. I went through a really rough time the end of July 2015 and have been recovering from it since then. I lost myself more then I could have ever imagined. All I did was cry, no appetite, can you believe for about two months I actually slept less the. 2 hours every night? I really don’t even know how I survived the feelings and thoughts I was going through. Lost, hopeless, drained. It was a real spiritual disturbance. I honestly lost so much of myself throughout that year, that I think it’s almost impossible to get myself back to were I was. The bright spirited, high energy aura that I once had is not anymore. I actually had people approach me sometimes and tell me that as soon as I walked into a room, it just lit up! And the more I think if it I actually feel sad again about how now I just am breathing and walking. Nothing else. No feeling, no real laughter. Just blowing through life. I had a whole plan of going to school and starting a future for myself before I got “sick” and now I’m just working somewhere that o can’t complain about pay but this was a job I would have never come too if it wasn’t for my mom and brother being desperate and sticking me here. I lost my best friend because I blamed her for what emotions I went through (there is a back story about that) but it really wasn’t her fault. Now she hasn’t reached out to me in over a year. And I truly do miss her but my pride is too big and also I don’t know if my family will let me talk to her because what I went through last summer. I love her but her energy isn’t always the best. When she’s in a good mood she’s great, but wow when she’s mad or upset her energy just radiates through my body. I lost a couple of my other friends cause I just withdrew from them. I’m kinda lonely at times and I don’t mind too much cause I’m a home body anyways but sometimes it’s nice and I miss my best friend and other friends. My significant other now is going through similar emotions about life. He’s been depressed, hopeless and just upset about life for the past 3 months. Won’t tell me exactly what is bothering him in his souls core. He blames it on work and “stuff” like that but I’m just not sure. I’m so sorry for this long comment, I thought it wouldn’t have been so long lol but my thoughts just started streaming through. Thank you so much for your time. Blessings on blessings your way

      Jay, you survived because you are a Divine Soul housed in a physical body. Nothing about that fact has changed. You are always that, you have always been that. Extreme hardships draws a curtain over our eyes and we are temporarily blinded to the truth, which is a primary cause of our suffering. I recommend counseling and shamanic healing/spiritual extraction, power animal retrieval, and soul retrieval to supplement the psychological healing. For further information on trained and qualified shamanic practitioners in your area, go to http://www.shamanism.org. Look under the dropdown box for trained people with whom you can seek healing help.

      Also follow the suggestions for spiritual connection and energy cleansing provided on this website.

      Due to time constraints, with dozens of comments coming my way daily, this is the extent of what I can offer you in this forum. If you will follow through, you will see your life improve and your energy for life blossom once again. Blessings to you.

    im going to bed because its 3 in the morning. but just a quick question, does weed make you more spiritually vulnerable because it opens up your aura. because im guessing that it can kind of goes both ways, like you’re more susceptible to bad energy but also more open to positive energy and i know a positive thought is stronger than negative. also i have some questions about dreams i wish you could answer right now lol.

Thank you and I will take your suggestion into strong consideration. Financially I might not be able to seek shamanic spiritual healing because I have done my research (I live in NY so everything around here is pretty pricey) but I will try to desperately work on it myself and try my hardest to push down the negative thoughts and become the happy me I was. I hope that works. Thank you again very much.

        Thank you, Jay for reaching out. Just one more thing: keep in mind that trying “desperately” is not quite what you’re aiming for. Joy and peace are not gained with desperation (although we can arrive at a good space because of what desperation has taught us), but rather, your healing will be achieved with relaxing into all the goodness you’ve not been noticing. Life is so beautiful, if we pay attention. Count your blessings, connect with Nature daily, undertake that spiritual practice, and laugh more. Gratitude is a good beginning, combined with an allowance for your healing to occur. Life wants so much to help you. Let it…

        Pushing down negative feelings only puts them where they can do harm long-term. What you want to do is transform negative thoughts/feelings with corrective thinking, with a realization of the truth that no matter how bad things get, the sun is shining behind the clouds. Remember to avoid self-pity while you genuinely nurture yourself with love.

        And, by the way–all things are possible with Spirit, so allow that the healing opportunities you feel you can’t afford will arise as you are able to work on yourself improvement. Even increasing your positivity just a little bit can cause miraculous things to occur.

        Love to you.

    hey diana, im “m.” im 17. i have a lot of questions and i hope it doesn’t bother you that i don’t have any money, i understand that your time is valuable. first of all id like to say that i really appreciate all of this information that you have posted and it has helped me to gain a new and different perspective on life. thankyou… i have always been aware that there is some kind of “energy” and i know a fair bit about the law of attraction. im young and just begging my life, so any advice is appreciated…. im in an ongoing crisis and its messing with me mentally because i feel like there are things that may be out of my control, its causing me alot of stress and anxiety and i just want to see what you think from your experience. i think someone is doing witchcraft or black magic on me and i have some evidence to show that it isnt just suspicion…..this is a seperate question. and is it possible or even common for someone to put bad and/or controlling thoughts in your head? and why might they do this? even if they appear to be your “friend”. also can weed and cigarettes, harm your energy if you let it? i’ve tried (omitted) a few times too and i feel like that totally opens my mind up… i think i like drugs. ive been (omitted) for like 5 years now and wonder if its still okay, is it up to me to decide? or should i not mess around with it. id like to talk to you privately, or some way we can talk because i feel that the topic is too sensitive.

      Hi, “M”…please notice that your comment was edited to protect your privacy. Thank you for reaching out and I’ll help you as best I can within this comment forum. Sessions with me are limited to those who are age 18 or older, so even if you could, I’m not able to consult with you in person. I want you to know, however, that you are a young person with tremendous potential and I’m proud of you for asking questions and being the seeker you were born to be. It’s an honor to assist you as best I can.

      Okay, so we have a several different issues, here. Let’s start with “i’m in an ongoing crisis and its messing with me mentally because i feel like there are things that may be out of my control, its causing me alot of stress and anxiety“.

      Most people have a lot of stress and anxiety these days. But for you, the answer to this is very plain: Do all that you can to bring stability and balance into your life, while taking into account you are a 17 year old male with a lot of development occurring within your maturing body that naturally and normally creates feelings of chaos and confusion. You will outgrow much of what is happening to you now. In the meantime, willingly and eagerly inject some personal discipline into your life: create a healthy routine for yourself and stick to it. Don’t stay up until 3 AM, go to bed at a healthy time each night, get up in the morning at the same time daily, eat healthy food, get plenty of regular exercise, study and read regularly, make sure that each day has a balance of physical work, study and learning, a safe spiritual practice, and healthy recreation. It’s clear to me that much of what you are choosing to do with your time involves being “out of control” by altering your state of consciousness, and this is most unwise for you. Don’t escape from life: use your time building solid dreams and learn/practice how to cope without “checking out” by using drugs. You are naturally sensitive and imaginative, so direct these gifts in a productive and focused way. Develop a talent, for instance. Come to understand that you gain spiritual power through practical disciplines, as well as earnest study and a daily spiritual practice, such as smudging.

      Slow your thoughts down, M. Notice how fast your thoughts jump from one thing to another, and are all over the place. Practice focusing, okay?

      Now, about “witchcraft and black magic” being directed at you, which you seem to believe is the cause of feeling stress and out of control: stop going there. Even though you say, “i have some evidence to show that it isnt just suspicion” this thinking does not serve you. This thought injures you and directs you away from a Primary Truth that you need for a personal foundation in your life, which is: You are a Divinely created, sovereign being. You do have control over the energies you allow into your life, if you will recognize your inner goodness and claim your sovereign right to be safe from negative attack. But, there’s more. You cannot choose to do those things that will subject you to negative influences. Mind-altering drug and substance experimentation by the young (and adults as well) certainly subjects you to negative influences, that’s a fact…and that’s that.

      Yes, you are correct that you have a choice! If I had but one message for young people, it would be to consider their choices very carefully, looking to the bigger picture of certain consequences of their choices and holding to those things they most wish to achieve in life.

      So, M, for those thoughts coming into your head: cleanse yourself with a salt bath, a smudging ritual, and a daily light meditation. I encourage you to read all the articles on this website about spiritual strength and protection, here, here, and here, for instance.

      Love yourself, young man, and remember this: Your life is a miracle and a gift, an adventure with limitless horizons if you will answer the call of your heart, and seek to discover your Soul. You build your life one day at a time, by the things you think, do, and act, so think of life as a world you create for yourself, a reality that brings out the best in you and makes life better for others. Thank you for sharing with us, M. and blessings to you!!

      Time constraints prevent me from giving you a long answer, Rajiv. I can assure you that you’re not dumb or spreading bad vibes, but I do suggest that you’re trying to make friends with the wrong people. Rajiv, finding friends shouldn’t be work, and it shouldn’t be painful. When it is, this is life telling you that you’re trying too hard, and that probably you’ve made a poor choice with the associations you seek. You are trying to find acceptance from people who cannot be your friends because they are not energetically or otherwise suited to you, so instead build your confidence with people who are more open and accepting. We can’t be liked by everyone: no one is, no matter what it looks like and besides…true friends are far and few between. Do you want true friends or do you just want to be popular? I suggest some counseling so you can get helpful feedback and some emotional support while you learn to socialize with more accepting people.

    Hello!

    About 6 years ago I was in a physically and mentally abusive relationship.. I am now engaged to a man that would never hurt me and we have a baby but I still cannot get away from my past. I still have dreams about him hurting me and I feel like I just cant get away from it.. So I guess my question is how do I get rid of this past negative energy?

      Read the many articles on this website and follow the guidance, such as salt baths, smudging, spiritual practice, etc. Your dreams do reflect psychological influence as well, and Sandra, the damages of abuse can sink deeply, so please make an appointment with a qualified therapist who can help you heal. The very best to you.

    Hi Diana, I really need your advise, I am a Ivory intuitive person and believe in bad energy as I’ve been living with my mother in laws bad energy for the past 3 years! She is destroying me and my husbands live as its asking over and I know that this is not me! She has caused a lot of problems through her sarcastic, hurtful comments, unfortunately my husband is not a fighter and she is very manipulative to the point where I think she is definitely narcissistic! I know that the way I feel is not me and have tried reiki, cbt, psychic readings and e conclusion was that I get a lot of her bad energy! Please help me to stop allowing her and my husbands brother to continue with this behaviour and give me all this bad energy as me and my husband love each other very much but it’s destroying us as she doesn’t stop!!

      Ane, thanks for commenting. Now I ask you: did you read this article? I suggest you read it again…and again…and take the meaningful steps that are suggested. Please read the article on this page, as well, for further guidance about how to have good energy for yourself, no matter what.

      I am sympathetic for the way you feel so trapped…and outnumbered. But you truly need a change of focus in this situation, because your pained emotions are crippling your ability to take positive action with yourself. –I know what you’re thinking, that you aren’t the one being negative here, but can you not see how your desperation works against you?

      Ane, you have to back up some, get better distance emotionally, and decide what you can do, and what you can’t. You cannot remold your husband to not be who he is. He has a dynamic with his mother (established long before you were even a twinkle in his eye) that frustrates you even further, which makes matters worse. I understand you are frustrated, and I want you to understand that this frustration works against you. So you have a decision to make. Actually, several.

      You can decide you will not argue with your husband about his mother. Turn your focus back on the love you share in your relationship with your husband and build on it, make it stronger by not trying to “show” him how awful his mother is. (–You have done that, haven’t you?) Don’t try to make him take sides. His dynamic with his mother is his alone, and you will have to find a way to live with that. Perhaps, over time and with the strengthening of the love between you, he will begin to see things in a different light. Your decision is whether or not you want a loving marriage. It is not your mother-in-law who is responsible for whether or not that happens so blaming her won’t fix the problem. It will only make matters much worse.

      When a person is facing crippling negative circumstances, when one is feeling brought down by the negativity of others, there are two rules we can live by: eliminate or minimize association; and stay true to the inherent goodness within.

      She has sucked you in and in so doing, you are contributing to the misery at hand. If you absolutely cannot eliminate your association with her (and your brother-in-law) then minimize it. Keep contact brief, be polite and emotionally withdrawn. Don’t take the bait. Think about other, more pleasant things when she’s saying things that offend you. Play deaf. I know you don’t want to do that, that you want those around you to understand how terrible she is, that you want justice in the form of recognition for the woundedness, but you have to let that go. She is what she is. Accept it. Express love and positive things to your husband and go on with your life. Get out of her head and she will have to get out of yours.

      Do you have a daily spiritual protection exercise? Do you visualize, with reverence and humility, a barrier of Divine Light around you? This is a clarion call for your own spiritual growth so answer it. Your life will change and your Soul will rejoice.

      Understand that this is a comment column and all contingencies cannot be addressed here. Further guidance requires a personal session with me. Thank you for sharing and I hope you will take the steps to rise above this for by taking control of yourself you will take control of your life.

    Hi Diana,
    There is this lady I will call her mama.
    I’ve known her family for almost 20yrs. But only in the last 2 year gotten close with her. She comes off as generous and understanding. But as of lately, I been getting those BAD vibes and I’m having a hard time trusting anyone around me. And sure enough the other night at my sons birthday party, she yells at me and calls me and my family fake, in front of my friends I introduced her to. I left my son’s party immediately. Let me tell you a few things about this lady, she is punchy, she had a very hard life, she isn’t physically loving nor emotional loving…what she is, is MEAN…I need help giving her bad her bad vibes, because I don’t want it. I don’t wanna feel like this, it’s ruining my day…first couple of nights I was good, but today it’s bad…I tried my best to envision peace, but it won’t let me…I’m hurt…I’m did NOTHING wrong to this women but be forever nice to her, even though I knew she had that negative vibe in her..I tried to sooth her irritations, that didn’t work….my fault for trying I guess….

      Hi, Phats, what do you mean when you write, “I need help giving her bad vibes”? –Are you meaning that you want to hurt her like she has hurt you? I hope not!!

      We can choose our friends and we can choose to realize when our “friendships” have turned the corner, meaning, when it’s not a healthy friendship anymore.You say you knew she was negative, all along. So why, Phats, did you expect anything else from her? Yes, at times she was “generous and understanding”. Perhaps on occasion she helped you in some way. This should teach you that even “bad” people are not “all bad”, but it’s time to learn that people who are not “all bad” are not necessarily good for you, either.

      I understand your feelings are hurt: she embarrassed and offended you! You wrote, “…my fault for trying…” and yes, that’s partly true…but not in the self-pitying tone of your words. This experience does not teach you not to try! It gives you valuable experience with human nature, and teaches you to be wise with your expectations and the amount of risk you take with relationships. You must learn not to be “all or nothing” in your superficial relationships, and measure your associations with greater caution and more realistic expectations.

      This sounds like a very miserable and tormented person. She certainly doesn’t need any “bad vibe” from you, and giving her that will only make you more like her…not a good choice. Instead, choose to learn from the experience and mature because of it. We all get our feelings hurt…not fun…but this is a part of life we all experience. It’s not what life does to you that matters, it’s what you choose to do with yourself that counts. So be forgiving, back away with grace, and go on with your life. This is in everyone’s best interests.

        Hi Diana,
        I just wanted to thank you, for this post which started a abundance of good vibes and karma for me…on the road to my own personal success. I have discontinued my friendship with her and her entire family, who i loved so very dearly, but i sent them off in a positive way…i still love them but i know i can no longer be around negativity. This has also helped me feel and see the worth in others i wish to be around…which aint much….i am completely happy now…ive started to meditate..and my life is in a major change! Its amazing!! Thank you!

    Hello,
    Thank you very much for your insight.
    I would very much appreciate some personal advice. I live with my brother who is mentally ill and he copes by being codependent. It’s been a long journey emotionally, physically and spiritually and after almost 2 decades of living together, I’ve been trying to move on with my life but it seems impossible. I’ve moved out more than once but circumstances beyond my control (financial and familial pressure) ensured I had to return.
    Living with him is unbearable not just because of his symptoms (he is schizophrenic and has a propensity for rage) but because of the way the atmosphere feels in the home. It’s heavy and oppressive even on his “good days”. What’s worse is, in my dating life I seem to attract men who I come to discover are diagnosed with mentally illnesses or exhibiting disturbingly similar traits. I have tried everything I can physically to improve my circumstances and it’s only gotten more complicated.
    I’m at my wits end and need help breaking this cycle. Please advise. Thank you.

      There are numerous and important facts not available about your situation, so I am going to recommend that you have a session with me. If it weren’t really necessary, I wouldn’t recommend it.
      I would love to help you, very much. I hope to hear from you so we can get started digging out. In the meantime, clear your head, have a daily spiritual practice, make a list of what you want to accomplish and every single day take baby steps to achieve your goal. You aren’t beat until you feel beat…so above all else, don’t sag into despair. There are answers.

            Of course, absolutely. Please read the articles throughout this website and implement the helpful suggestions in your life. Also, Tori, reach out to Spirit by asking for help, every day. Start each day with the expectation of a miracle, just say to yourself, “Expect a miracle!” and then watch how the help comes from Spirit, often through the hands and hearts of other people…help is all around you, big and small. Love to you…peace, hope, and help. I know your answers arrive.

    Hi Diana, I’ve read all of the comments, and interestingly enough, the last comment on your article relates to my situation. I have the challenge of being a caretaker for a mentally challenged adult ( through my husband’s relation) who is very needy intellectually and thus, with no one else to care for her, we have the requirement to do so. There are no surviving relatives and she was never signed up for social services, so she lacks social supports. I have noticed that my mental well being has been impacted by her. She is not our only challenge, but I will say that her depressive moods and behaviors are a significant strain on both me and my husband and our relationship – it’s as if she’s 10 years old and is a mature adult chronologically. Do you have any suggestions about how to deal with a situation where the person who is depressed and mentally challenged is negatively effecting my aura and thus my life? She lives with us full time and it is so draining, I don’t feel the energy to pursue things that I used to do – working full time, having friends and social outlets, etc. I get the paralysis feeling that another person wrote of above me – I sit at home and feel I can’t “do” anything to get us out of this spin, yet I have general health and balance in terms of my abilities and talents. It’s like I freeze at home & so does my husband. I realize these are huge life lessons, but frankly, the lessons are getting “long in the tooth” – LOL! Should I change where she lives, if possible? We’re at wits end sometimes and I think any tips would be helpful. I realize she cannot help her condition and that she is her own soul with her own journey, too. She is a good person. Some advice on this matter? Love to you!

      Hi, Sarah, thanks for reaching out. First off, do you have a daily spiritual protection practice? You should.

      This is a complicated situation, on the surface. So let’s simplify.

      You say she hasn’t been signed up for social services. Why not?? You and your husband need to discuss between yourselves why you took this on. –How did this end up in your lap? Take a look at every reason your gave yourselves and in there somewhere, you’ll discover some assumptions on your part that were good-hearted in the beginning, but that now have become too much to bear.

      Perhaps the most difficult reality to deal with…for anyone facing such a situation…is that our society is horrendously neglectful of those millions of people that lawmakers and others in power (who have the authority to make adequate resources available to those in need) consider to be unproductive and disposable. There is a systemic, evil, and criminal neglect of the poor, the aged, and the handicapped. Beautiful and good people who can still feel their Divine souls, such as you and your husband, are compelled to do the just and right thing: help how they can. So truly, bless you for trying.

      Having said that…notice I said “how they can“. Just because you are still breathing does not mean that you are able to do this, in other words, your situation has exceeded the “can” element of the equation. So it’s time to make some changes. Certainly, this should not be allowed to adversely effect your marriage, your emotional well-being, or your life expression to the severe extent that it has.

      It is difficult to learn the philosophical and emotional difference between the states of “being selfish” and “self-preservation”. You need to think about this. And what you should remind yourself, is that your hearts have been in the right place and you…very admirably…gave it a good go. I know that her Soul thanks you. –But–being a Divine Soul, I can assure you that her Soul does not want to injure you and is willing to take what comes, for this is how Souls develop. It’s often very difficult and sometimes, there is no other way. We know that when we choose to be born here. What matters here, is your motivation and intention. I am certain your heart is in a good place. I go on about this because I know you need to hear it.

      Even though there are certainly emotional and physical components to being such a caregiver, there are certainly spiritual ones. So, if you are going to keep her around, you will need to have a daily protection meditation (use often during the day) and I would recommend smudging the house as well as the family, including her. Go here to learn more.

      But really, it appears that the choice before you is to reassess the facts. I am certain there are social options, welfare assistance and care homes, available to her. It’s time to make those phone calls.

      I hope this has been helpful to you, and I thank you so much for commenting.

    Hi Diana,

    I would love your advice. I have 2 sons and a loving husband. My problem is my inlaws. They have got my money (whatever i earned before marriage also), have hurt me more than I could count. I havent got a chance to help my parents financially or be with them along with my kids. My question is “What you sow is what you reap” , so should I wait till my in laws move out of my aura or should I do something ? I have quit my job also to take care of kids. My needs are met but my parents feel bad as they need my moral support ,me being the only child for them. My inlaws have used me which I realized very late mainly financially. Will there be god’s way of getting back that in return ? I have so much hatred on them that I feel they should be punished severely.
    Thanks,

      Well my dear, as a good friend once said to me, that’s a “big wad of bubble gum!” Meaning, you wrote lot of stuff to know (that I don’t know) and to consider (several things going on), served up all at once. So I chewed on those parts that I can gather from your dilemma, to get to the best advice that you’ve asked for.

      Let’s start here. You said, “My question is “What you sow is what you reap” , so should I wait till my in laws move out of my aura or should I do something?” These are two unrelated ideas, and neither are exactly accurate as you propose them.

      When faced with life’s problems, we have to start by asking the right questions to get the correct answers that can help us! So, slow down…sort out your emotions…learn to recognize when you’re feeling a bit out of control and take the time you need to spiritually re-center yourself.

      In your sentence, you reveal your belief that “you sow what you reap”. That would mean that whatever you do (both good and bad) will come back to you, isn’t that right? This concept has roots in the Eastern religions that believe in Karma, also phrased as “What goes around comes around”.

      Now in your case, you feel that your in-laws have done something bad to you. But there are some problems, here, with taking a black-and-white position on what you believe to be karmic “law”. This fundamental approach to this particular spiritual belief can cause us to be fixated on the dispensing of justice, which has a very negative effect on us because it prevents us from taking personal responsibility about events we blame others for, leaves us feeling justified in our non-forgiveness, keeps us fixated on resentment, and puts our internal emotions and our spirits into a slow, boiling compressed rage.

      Another problem with leaning on this belief too heavily is one of timing… Look around you at all the bad things that people have done in this world and manage to get away with their wrong deeds….so when, then, do people get their comeuppance for “bad doings”? Lots of times, it appears that it just doesn’t happen, at least not when the people who feel injured want it to! Meaning, when we get stubborn about “not getting better” until the bad people get punished, we are sentencing ourselves to a very long time in a prison of self-imposed misery.

      Our thoughts and concerns about people being punished for things they’ve done are based on our ideas of justice…human beings want justice…but let’s face it: sometimes our desire for justice is a bit misplaced. Our judgements about who deserves bad things to happen can even be wrong when seen from outside of our own injured eyes. So, not knowing how they got your money, I can only surmise that you had at least some part in making that happen. Whatever the case, you do have some personal responsibility for what happened. (We all have personal responsibility for what happens to us.) Taking this responsibility will shift your negativity and resentment into far more productive thinking, so you can come up with calm and proper solutions for yourself. What has hurt you the most in all this is the hatred that you feel.

      Move away from the hatred, even if you can’t stop being angry. This is the only way you can repair and rebuild. My dear, the hatred you feel is not your “in-laws in your aura.” It is your own energy that you are suffering with, brought on by the hatred that you feel, along with the helplessness, the sense of betrayal, the being torn about your own family’s needs, and more. For your own good, turn your focus away from punishing them and focus on healing yourself and building a strong spiritual connection.

      I know that you, like many others, feel that if someone who hurt you gets punished, that this will heal you. I’m sorry to say that many good lives have been wasted in this idea. So please don’t waste yours.

      Furthermore, Life itself is the Source of all abundance, in all it’s forms. Money is merely a thing, a manifestation of energy and to make it, let the negativity go. Of course money can come back to you!! —But it will be much more difficult if your attitude is negative and you are holding onto resentment.

      It would be good for you to get this all out and begin to move ahead with your life, so go see a qualified psychological counselor for yourself and seek marital counseling for your marriage. Although you say your husband is loving, there is considerable confusion in this assertion since these are his parents, and by your description he allowed them to “take” your money, leaving you in this state of mind. There is a disconnect here, and marital counseling is probably called for.

      I know that this isn’t the answer you were hoping for, simply because you are hurt and feeling so torn, unable to sort things out. God does not step into our lives and wave a wand to fix things. We have to, while relying on our inborn spiritual connection to the Creator, come to understand the deeply spiritual and loving lessons we are being taught about life. With the right attitude, you will come through this healed, with a better understanding of yourself and others, and back into the beautiful soul you were born to be. Please start to practice gratitude and joy, and begin to let go of what has happened. For this, there is a good saying: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

        Hi Diana,
        First of all thanks for taking time and giving a long reply. There is literally no benefit for you from me but still you took time to understand and reply back. Thats really sweet. Thnx a ton for that. I was surrounded by so many positive people before marriage that I thought there is literally no negative in this world. I was just so dumb and naive. As you have said , yes, I gave the money to my husband so that he can help his parents to get a house. I absolutely had no regret till I was earning, So as you say I should take responsibility for it. I have a regret now as my parents are in need of a house and I am unable to help and I have quit my job to take care of my kids. Husband was not ready to help and Dad feels if it had been a boy child I would have helped as that is how society is in my place (India). Now I am filled with guilt that without doing my duty as a daughter I am useless 🙁 . Now that I have seen that negative people do exist in life I should have taken a better decision before giving my money to my husband. I pray a lot for my parents. I can walk out of my marriage but it is a disgrace for my family back in India. I will not make my parents go through that. This soul, birth, life everything is for my parents as I feel i have given my best to the rest of the people around me (husband, kid, etc). Your reply makes me feel that there is still positive people alive in this world and one day there will be light at the end of the tunnel. I will pray for now. But is there a way that you can do a paid healing for my situation ? Will that help to smooth-en my situation ?
        Thanks Much,
        Shan

          Thank you for sharing the necessary details and bless your heart for the goodness within you. As I respond to you, know that I am assuming your parents would like to have a house, not that they are altogether without shelter. So there are two issues here: your feelings about yourself and circumstances and secondly, your parent’s condition in life. So, let’s start with you.

          First of all, hindsight–that ability to see things after-the-fact–can sometimes make us feel that we wish we’d done things differently, sometime in the past. All humans beings share this experience at some time or another. Life is a vast expanse of unknowns for everyone. So, we do the best we can do and that is the best we can ask of ourselves. I’d like you to think that over very carefully, for if Divine Spirit is anything, it is fairness, as well as mercy. Show mercy upon yourself, and be fair in your retrospection.

          Please don’t be so disappointed in yourself, Shan! I ask that you begin to consider truths greater than the beliefs you were taught, truths greater than the expectations you have heaped upon yourself because of the way your society has conditioned you. These are tremendous moments in your life for profound spiritual growth and personal breakthrough. I see good things happening here.

          If you could see the perfect planning of Souls, if you could understand your own parent’s Souls, you would have tremendous peace in the understanding that everything is all right! Their Souls know what they are doing (even if their personalities lean heavily on you for support). This means that your parents are in Divine hands and it truly is not up to you to be a stand-in for God when something you so desire to help them with is not possible for you. Your job is to see them in Divine hands and trust in a greater power at work here. All Souls work out the most meticulous plans for their development in the physical world, including your parents, and this development, of necessity, requires less-than-perfect circumstances at one time or another. You are not expected nor required to step in and “fix” everything. Nor should you feel as if you have to compensate for not being a male child. Again, this is about expanding beyond the limitations of belief into the larger circle that encompasses all of life. That expansion of awareness is often called “finding truth”.

          When it comes to asking for a healing for something of this nature, out of caring for you I ask you not to ask people like me for a healing. I know that thousands….who knows how many?…of psychics and gurus and others that say they can provide healing, or charms, or chants or whatever and of course, for a price. I also know that some people seem to “get healed” after someone “does something” for them, but this is not about the “healer”. When it works, it’s because the person somehow believed in it. This discussion ranges deep into metaphysics and belief, and a lot more, but your situation as described does not need a healing by an outside person. You need peace of mind and greater insight, something I am attempting to share via this comment. The strength you need, the help for your parents, and peace in your family will come through your own growth and understanding, your connection to your own divine Soul. So yes, by all means trust in your spiritual practice.

          You only need to begin to love and accept yourself, accept the limitations at the moment, and begin to surrender to a deep trust in the Divine to provide for your parents what you cannot provide right now. (Now, Shan, if they are in dire circumstances, such as without shelter or necessities, then you also can mount a collection drive in their behalf or arrange for help from agencies, however, you have not given me the impression that they are destitute.) Remember the quote I shared earlier, and in your pain of heart, know that in this are the seeds of miracles sprouting. This may not be what you think you want, but be sure that blessings and help of the right kind will come to you and to those you love.

          Namaste, from my heart to yours.

            You are correct. My parents are not in dire need of a house right now. They had the need some 6 months back when water entered our old house due to heavy rains. Though I couldnt give them money God gave them help through my uncle and they got the house and they have a safe shelter now. Yes as you said they are in divine hands. I will believe that miracles and blessings are on the way and will wait for things to unfold. Thanks for the last two lines mainly which are very soothing and comforting. You are an excellent clairvoyant 🙂 Once I get changes in my life I will come back and post again here 🙂

            You are not money- minded which is very clear from your reply which is very rare these days. Even though I have asked for a paid healing you have said that is not needed in my case. Since you have done your part in helping me I will do my part in spreading your link to my friends. If possible I will post in FB groups as well 🙂

            Thank you, Shan, for contributing here and for sharing your heart. I’m grateful for our interaction. All and every blessing to you.

    Hi Diana
    I would love your advice. I have living in my home with my 14 year old son for 9 years. 2 years ago my mum and dad built a granny flat on my property and I have not been happy. 3 months ago I had a flooding which has taken me out of the home for the last 2 months and still out. I am not feeling happy returning as I am feeling bullied by my entire family. They have been visiting my parents without acknowledging me and I feel that I want to sell however cannot due to the situatuation with my parents. My mum has also now taken over my cat and dog which I feel very unhappy about. Is there a way to protect around my home so that I can bring back the beautiful energy I once felt on my property.

      Hi, Suzette,
      Your situation has complexities to it that I can’t address here. Please read the many articles on this site, which give lots of information about how to build beautiful energy. Your family dynamic needs to be somehow separated from your personal sense of self, and it would be good for you to work on one problem at a time and project constructive thought and action into that before going on to the next. The very best to you, and my desire for your success. You may arrange for a session with me if you need more assistance other than what I’ve written here on this website.

    Thank you so much for this article! It has explained a lot.
    Just today I was serving a customer when I looked into his eyes and felt a heavy aura coming from him trying to attach itself onto me. I felt angry but my gut instinct was telling me to be calm and not be bothered by this guy. (I’ve been having problems with this guy, as he has been bad mouthing me behind my back and all I said to him was ‘morning!’ Whilst being friendly and nice!). I didn’t know that I could feel his energy, but definitely would try the white light when he is around. Thanks you!

      Thanks, M., for taking time to share. Just a couple of things to mention, though: Use clear intention when building your auric barrier by visualizing it in your mind and, use golden-white light when you do. (There is an important difference between the frequencies of white and golden-white, or golden. I did not specify in this particular article.) I’m glad you discovered the website and grateful this has helped you!

    Hi!
    Thank you for such a wonderful article! I struggle with “energy vampires,” even in just passing, as I am an empath and very sensitive. I was in a bad religious situation growing up, a church of “energy vampires” and narcissists. My family left when I was fourteen, and it took me almost six years till I was able to recover from them (with the help of my family and a new, very loving religious environment). But they still seem to “drain me” and I don’t know how to protect myself. My mom told me she read an article and to envision myself in a ball of white light, and imagine their negative energy is bouncing off of it (I think your article was the one that she had mentioned 🙂 ).
    But, I recently had a very bad experience in a class I really looking forward to. Another girl was very negative, continually talked about dark things, casually told the professor that she would go over his head and “report him” if things didn’t go the way she wanted, and she spent the whole class talking about herself. She got us off topic continually and talked about dark writings, in the fiction and short story area; I wouldn’t have minded so much about this specifically, but we were supposed to be learning about poetry and the different forms. We learned almost nothing that day.
    But when she did get us off topic, I would sigh, cross my arms and the professor would try to get us back on topic (I felt badly about this later because it’s not his fault that she was acting this way) but she was extremely persistent, almost like she was teaching the class.
    I was shaking, had an upset stomach, chills, and I thought I might pass out (I had dots dancing in front of my vision, I was worried that I was going to have a panic attack in class, something that I have a great fear of). And I felt a lot of unnecessary or unexplained anger. I was upset that something I was so looking forward to was defaced in such a way and that she has threatened out professor, but my reaction later was almost a digression to a place I had been almost four years ago.
    I need this class for my major, and thankfully, the class only meets once a week, but I’m dreading going to the next meeting. And I don’t feel safe writing about things that are close to me, as I would be making myself vulnerable.
    Is there anything I can say or do? I’m not the only one, as other students in the class were sharing “looks” and seemed irritated by it.
    How can I protect myself from people like her?
    Thank you so much!
    Sincerely,
    Eve

      Thank you, Eve, for writing.

      What’s wrong with standing up? Literally…standing up, saying in front of the class, “This is all quite interesting, but not on my time. I pay good money for my education and in this class, you are not the teacher I paid for.” Then turn to the teacher, “Is is possible that we can get this class back on track?” You can also speak to the teacher and to administration, as well. Sometimes we just have to stand up…this is a lesson in your own personal power and even though you’re scared to say anything, that’s the reason these kind of people take the center stage…intimidate others…and run the world. In this case, a public classroom, you are being called upon to show some leadership. Come from level-headedness, don’t lose control, don’t attack, just assert your right to get your education without disruption.

      Love and light around you, courage to be what you need to be.

    I ve bee catching alot of negative energy lately and usually i m really good at spotting the source of this bad vibes but lately i ve been wondering how can i recognized their source.
    this got me really confused lately so the question is: are this vibes coming from my own fear and unsecurity or is it coming from somewhere or someone else?and if so how should deal with it?

      Don’t look for the source!! Why are you doing this? Build your own positive energy!! That counters all negativity. Work on you, all else follows.

        Diana, just a questio/thought in reference to safa’s question. I agree it is essential to build your own positive energy, but I also think it is important to understand the source in some instances to be aware of places and people to avoid. This might be helpful in discerning one’s own energy field and what or who affects it.The same umderstanding could be a support for people and places
        that are source of light and love. Thoughts?
        Thank you

          Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! Yes, I have some thoughts! 🙂

          When reading the comments section, it probably good for readers to know that my responses are specific to the person leaving the comment. For this reader, I provided the “short and sweet” answer that can solve the underlying problem: she is feeling bad energy , regardless of where it comes from. Keeping our own aura clean and with boundaries intact is a fail-safe solution. It isn’t productive for us to over-complicate or try to out-think the problem, nor to overreach into areas that muddy the primary issue.

          The reader did not say that she practices spiritual protection, and along those lines, I encounter many who “pick up on bad vibes” but who do not have a defensive spiritual practice of their own. –Which is the primary reason why they are “catching” bad vibes!

          Now, having said that, you’ve suggested the need for me to further explain my response, which I’ll offer in a future article. For for now, though, a few important “bullet-points” (if that’s even possible) for something that’s not as simple as it seems. At least from where I sit.

          You said, ” I also think it is important to understand the source in some instances to be aware of places and people to avoid. This might be helpful in discerning one’s own energy field and what or who affects it.The same understanding could be a support for people and places that are source of light and love”

          The most authentic way for us to discern our own energy field is through the heart, by coming to know what we stand for. Human beings are incredibly complex. There are many unseen, unrecognized elements to our awareness, not the least of which include psychologically-embedded factors (such as ego) that serve as undeniable filters through which we perceive reality. When you see through a filter there is a distortion and what you think you’re looking at, is often something other than what you are seeing. What you think you are feeling, is often something other than where you are feeling it from.

          This doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try to discern energy…in this case, to “scope out” the energies of a person or place or thing…but we should know a lot more about it than we do before we rely too heavily upon our certainties. Countless times, people in New Age, religious, or other similar communities have committed great error in attributing “negative energy” to people who are innocent, and “good energy” to superficialities that stroke their emotions and mislead them.

          All this means, is that first and foremost, before we attribute this energy or that energy to someone or something, we need to know ourselves a lot better than we do! These are matters that individuals have to assess for themselves, for in matters of spiritual growth, we have to be flexible and have a high degree of self-honesty.

          It is far better to state a simple truth, such as, “I feel this way when I am….” rather than think or say, “This energy is…..” because discerning and assessing spiritual energy in reliable ways is so difficult. Instead of over-reaching, we can start to recognize how much our egos influence our spiritual development. On our spiritual journey, we are meant to learn that over-reaching, using our intellect to assess spiritual reality, and expecting to gain more than we can from looking through the filters we all have…these are the roadblocks that we make for ourselves.

          What everyone safely can do, and should do, is to pay attention to their feelings, which is not the same as “reading energy” even though we often use those terms interchangeably. Feelings are an inner guidance about something going on, within them as well as outside of them. Then, we must do what is necessary to establish inner harmony, and use energetic defenses that keep unseen and unwelcome influences out.

          So often, the work that we need to do is within us…while we learn to see the outside world as a reflection that has something to teach us. Instead of sensing energies in order to define them as positive or negative, we should instead be learning to stand perfectly centered upon the holy ground of our own Being, regardless of whatever chaos rages beyond the reach of our Light.

          This is the ultimate spiritual achievement. In the meantime, be the best you can be in this moment and growing better with the passage of time. The energy that’s “out there” is, what is is. You be who you are, and focus on understanding that, a very big task.

          Over time, then, you will be much more capable of reading the energy landscape, knowing how to proceed and who/what to avoid.

          That is the way of the spiritual traveler.

            Hi Diana, thanks for this very helpful comment. I’ve read the message several times on your blog, but this is the one that makes it most clear to me what the next step is. It’s time to start working on myself, accepting and loving myself and the energies that I feel around me, and find a way to help others. It’s a dramatic change for someone who lived in the rational world most of their live, thinking I couldnt ‘feel’, suppress my sensitive side. I think it’s difficult for a lot of people where to start. For me starting to feel was experiencing physical connections in partner dance.
            Thank you so much for your objective clear posts, it’s beautiful how you help many people in this way!

    Hi Diana,
    Thank you so much for all of your amazing information and insight! My question is this: I’ve begun practicing sending love energy to family and friends at night before I go to bed. I thank the Divine for my many blessings and ask for assistance in sending _______ love, or warmth, or nurturing, or healing, or peace or whatever it is I want to send the person. I then think of the person and ask them if they would like to accept, I’m sending them love. I then envision the beautiful love energy flowing from me to them. When it feels like it’s been sent, I stop. I have noticed that for a specific person, either within minutes or the next morning, I feel depressed or anxious or conflicted… Have I picked up some of their energy? Almost as if they’re angry at me for sending them energy… Should I stop? I thought it was helpful to them, even though they don’t know I’m sending them love. After reading your wonderful insights, I think I may just need to protect myself. Also, I must admit I am also doing this almost as exercise… To strengthen and invite the live in my life. I was thinking the more love I send out, I should attract it too. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

    I have a negative energy at my front door of my flat, from a living person, the care-taker of this block, who lives on site, down stairs from med. Its a heavy, somewhat nasty kind of energy, stuck there. I do manage to clear it, but it comes back because he is still alive and emitting bad vibes to everyone. I have plants, crystals, incense, etc. My question isn’t How do I clear it, My question is what will eliminate it once and for all and permanently eradicate it. I thought it was just me, but someone who used to live above me, who’s now moved on, talked to me one day about how he sensed the same thing. Short of him actually dying, what needs to be done..

      Hello, Claire and thank you for writing!

      Your question, just to be clear, is this: “…how to eliminate (this negative energy) once and for all… permanently eradicate it.”

      I wish I had a bit more information, such as whether he lives directly below you, what the air flow is like at the front door (Are you within a closed building or does your front door open to the outside air?),
      and so on. So, not being fully informed I’ll have to go with your question at face value…and the answer will require that I give you some explanation, first.

      One can certainly eradicate bad energy from a house, a location or a tract of land, or an object. We can then render that energy neutral–like a clean slate–readied for reconstruction into a positive state. From what you tell me, you’ve done great things to raise the frequency at your door but it’s being overwhelmed, in spite of that.

      Now, unlike locations or objects, when it comes to taking unauthorized action to eradicate bad energy from a person… I’m sorry to say that you can’t. You have to find another way to deal with the situation, and there’s a bottom-line explanation why you cannot.

      Human souls, including the caretaker’s, have a unique opportunity given to them by Life to be sovereign beings responsible for their own energy fields. We cannot reach into someone else and get bad energy out without their consent even if we are qualified and trained to do so. In the same manner that you want to clean this man up, wouldn’t we also like to clean up the dark and terrible energies in this world, exuded by the people who do heinous things to other beings? –Wouldn’t we all love to live in a world without any darkness? Those of us who do our best to not be darkness or invite darkness into our lives would jump for joy if we could eradicate it for good!

      This is where our ego minds come up against a Cosmic brick wall and our spirits enter into the type of Mastery training for which we were born into the human condition. We need to get the bigger picture, and in this way, negative energy makes us grow. It makes us better for the understanding, self-mastery, and wisdom we acquire from it. And that includes outlasting it, being serene in the face of it, being unmoved because we are so strong within our own Light it has the mere annoyance of a stinging ant hill at our feet. We don’t have to live inside the anthill–that much is given to us–and we are free to side-step and be on our way. Metaphorically, dear Claire, it appears you are staring at the anthill when you should be moving on. While that may seem to be an oversimplification, I assure you it is not far from the truthful resolution you seek.

      But there’s more. Created physical worlds in this dimension are held together by opposing forces, which allows matter to exist. We have sunlight and dark, up and down, joy and despair, sickness and health; we have the right amount of rain, then no rain, then floods; there are poisonous spiders and harmless doves…you get the idea. The key is self-protection, placement of self, and where one puts their attentions.

      Earth is a “theme-park” for maturing Souls: there is a waiting line for spiritual beings who want to experience dual forces, an experience not widely available in the limitless expanse of multidimensional life. Your training includes the development of wisdom, calm and wary attention of what’s going on around you, and an understanding of the right of forces to exist. Your right is to choose your own alliance, and move ahead within a stream of light while chaos rumbles around you. –All is seeking order and reunion with Source, eventually.

      Now the metaphysics of this situation doesn’t make you any happier about your front door, does it? –Or any happier about the existence of someone who is a negative energy generator in your vicinity. I understand. Our present societies present unique problems not encountered by our ancestors: we live in crowed environments and shared buildings, forced into close contact with those we find repellent. Many of us share your circumstances in one way or another. Nevertheless, our task is to adapt, respect all of life (it is wise to not scorn dark energy or “pick a fight” with it), and instead, to focus on the emanation of our own light. Please trust me when I say that when your own frequency elevates to a sufficient pitch of extremely rapid oscillations (created by calm resonance to transcendent Love) the man will exit your stage. In the meantime, keep doing the clearings. You are building your spiritual muscles by lifting the weight of the situation and its important for you to see the positive side of the matter.

      –And Claire, please do take a light heart about this. Nothing is forever, so while you have the opportunity, simply observe the presence of those little “stinging ants”. Meantime, you may as well be joyfully, thoughtfully on about your way. There is so much more to discover, much of it good, some of it not…but I am certain you are the right person to handle the Divine work of your Soul! 🙂

    I would just like to say thank you. Thank you for understanding negative energy from people. It’s nice to read your post and to know what impact negative energy can have on a person. I am currently experiencing negative energy from a person at work. She stinks of the stuff. For the first year of working with this person I was able to be my happy self, it didn’t affect my aura. Now 2 years on its has. It’s like it’s clinging to me n I need a detox badly. I get palpitations going to work that started about a year ago. It’s not my work that has affected me it’s that one person that has. My dreaded fear is ending up like such a person. The person enjoys been sarcastic towards others. Enjoys putting people down and basking in her own joy. I have gone from a happy person to were it feels soul destroying. An ex employee gave one of the reasons was her why he left, I have another employee making a request to not work with her. It’s absolutely mind boggling to me how a person would want to have a personality like this.

      Hello, Julie, and thank you for sharing.

      You say in your comment that “It’s absolutely mind boggling to me how a person would want to have a personality like this.” Oh, how often I hear statements similar to this! We have a serious problem shared by the good-hearted people of this world: they just don’t understand why all other people are not as harmless or as well-intentioned as they are. As a species, we need to grow beyond our immature hopes that other people “can’t be that bad.” Our tendency to assume that just because we would do the right thing, that everyone else should too, causes us to not assess predators easily and once having spotted a person that we should be wary of…to deal with them accordingly. In your case, this would be to maintain your psychological and psychic defenses while doing your job and liking your work.

      Julie, there are all kinds of people in this world, and she is giving you some valuable teachings about life: namely, that not everyone is nice…or sincere…or kind…or loving…or truthful…or harmless.

      It may come as a surprise to you, but a person’s personality is not a matter of simple choice. Now, what they DO with the personality they project is their choice, but a personality is is an artificial facade sculpted by genetic make-up, life circumstances, and unseen spiritual factors. While some have the benefit of pleasing personalities, that in no way means that they are “good” people. (Crooked and deceitful politicians liked by the public are a good example of this phenomena.) Likewise, there are people with disagreeable personalities that are good people who just don’t easily demonstrate the value and goodness within them.

      Our personalities are not necessarily what we truly are, they are not the “real” us. I say to you that this woman has been a wonderful teacher to you…even if an unpleasant one. It’s easy to accept and forgive people we like…the real test (and spiritual training) comes from having the opportunity to rise above difficult situations like you describe.

      Having said that, Julie, you will benefit now from accepting the fact that this woman cannot be your friend: she is what she is and such is life. Don’t spend another minute focused on the faults you find with her. She exists and so do you, both created by Life and each on your own Path. Your continuing thoughts about what she is, or isn’t, can be released. This is something you don’t have to try to understand: the reasons why she is the way she is are not for you to figure out. What you do have to do, is stop allowing it to influence you in a negative way. When we get stuck on trying to understand why “bad” people are “bad” we lose sight of many important facts of life. All that you are responsible for, the only person you have the power to change, is you, so put your focus there. Tell yourself that “It’s not what others do to me, it’s how I react that matters.”

      Allowing others to drag us down is a choice. Yes, it is!! Now that you know this, from the very first efforts you make to allow her to be who she is…and get on with being who you are, the negative influence she has had over you will begin to subside.

      I also recommend that before going to work every day (as well as every other day of the week) that you have a spiritual practice of visualizing bright sunlight all around yourself, coming from the Source of All Life. Read my article on “Tips & Techniques to Have Positive Energy and a Good Aura No Matter What!”

      Blessings to you on your wonderful journey through life.

      Thanks Diana. The answer you gave , I hope someone else also gets something out of its explanation. My front door opens up to the fresh air, I get a strong cross breeze passing through my walkway. The care-taker is down stairs from me, just not directly underneath. I love my location where I am, but if I should move address then I will. Also I will look for reading articles, and / or music, on meditations for protection. Thanks for that insight.

    Dear Diana, I have troubles dealing with anxiety. It doesn’t disrupt my everyday life, only certain triggers set it off. Well it seems to be a person who sets it off. She was a friend but I have learned that she is a trigger for my anxiety and I have learned to keep her at a distance except that I cannot control her motives in my life. Like I cannot control her showing up to my yoga class, and when she does she places her mat front and center with all her focus on me, teaching a yoga class is the last place I want the anxiety placed on me. Yoga is supposed to be calming and relaxing and clear of negative energies but when she comes she throws my entire energy off. I can literally feel warm heat , pressure coming from her. I get anxiety and mess up the entire class and after class she gives me a smirk and walks out. I know that I can teach a good yoga class but it seems when ever she shows up I get so anxious the whole class gets screwed up. I have even went to one of her yoga classes and sat in the back and expirence the same anxious tension, and leave the class more up tight than what I was before . How can I clear my emotions from her , around myself so that I cannot be effected by her energy ?? I need some advice, thank you .

      Hello, Susan. Thank you for taking the time to comment. You would greatly benefit from a session with me, as a comment section is not the place to address this issue competently. Quickly, there are a couple of issues: lack of self-confidence and poor aura protection. I suggest you begin here: http://myspiritcare.com/articles/when-meditation-goes-wrong-6-secret-facts-about-altered-states-of-awareness. Pay particular attention to the section that explains why things happen to you, and begin your education about how spiritual energy works, how it is that you are impinged upon, and how to build a solid defensive barrier against outside energies. Yoga, done properly, is a form of meditative practice and it opens one to spiritual forces that most people do not understand. As far as self-confidence is concerned, you will gain more of that through spiritual education and a deeper connection to your own Soul energy. And please make an appointment if there is further need.

    Hi. Ever since my dad left for his holiday to see my trailer trash older brother for a week, I have been getting that ratty and nervous feeling again. I been overly exhausted and tired, and feels like my entire body is on fire, especially in my head, and forehead, with red skin rashes on my face, and my eyes go in and out of focus, or cross-eyed, as I’m staring at the computer screen. I don’t know if I’m overly sensitive to all the radiation emanating from all my electrical appliances, or if I need glasses, or if it’s a form of spiritual awakening, or opening of the third eye, or alchemical fire, which I doubt, because I stopped meditation long ago as an experiment to see if the fire would go away but it hasn’t, or if it’s psychic hatred and jealousy energy, emanating from my psychopathic brother, because he missed out on a sizable inheritance over 5 years ago, and the reason why he kicked my dad out of his caravan in the middle of the night, cutting his 2 week holiday short.

    I’m trying to nail down why I always receive all these strange physical reactions and symptoms when I don’t drink, don’t smoke, no drugs, no prescription medications. I drink distilled water, no fluoride, no chlorine, I eat raw and cooked organic foods, and wash it all down with Bentonite Clay. Yet these strange feelings persist, especially around the full moon months. I’m right in the middle of buying an EMF Meter to see if there is too much radiation in my bedroom. I’m going to keep nailing it down until I discover the root cause of these symptoms, because I want to feel 100% healthy and I’m not getting it.

    When I used to socialise with people, they were so easy to read, I didn’t like what I was receiving back, so I dumped all me mates, and feel so much happier now that I’m a recluse. But getting rid of family members isn’t as easy. For many years I could already sense a growing agitation in my brother wanting inheritance, until one day he got drunk, and pretty much spilled the beans, confirming what I always believed. I even sensed that he was subconsciously hoping that I would touch his kids – which would give him a better reason to hate me, and use it to convince others I’m not worthy to receive inheritance. To use his own kids like that, hurt me to the core, which propelled me to write several poems about him, and his no good greedy wife, then I threw them up on my Facebook page, knowing he would read them.

    15 years ago I received a $20,000 inheritance from my grandma, and my brother received nothing, and only found out about it 5 years ago, and ever since, has been stewing over it, and no doubt thinking of all the hateful things he would love to do to me and this property, especially when he discovers at the last moment, the house is going to me and my younger sister.

    I was going to write more, but it might be too personal to write it here, so I will shut up now. But anyway. What I am trying to get at here – I wonder if I am feeling his vengeful wrath energy 1000km’s away.

    Like, what are the symptoms of someone thinking hateful, revengeful, jealous thoughts about you from a 1000 miles away?

    Should I encapsulate myself in golden energy each day to try block out his constant barrage of hateful thoughts? It’s just ridiculous isn’t it? This is why I hate being around people. Most people are scum, except for my immediate family and animals whom I love deeply, but I never want nothing to do with this world and all the fear mongering you hear when you turn on the TV sickens me to the core.

    But I’m happy. I feel free, and loved, and at the end of the day that is all that matters really.

      Mark, read this article again and again until you have it memorized. Then DO… and stop dwelling on the faults of other human beings. These people are your greatest teachers about the shadow within yourself, which must be acknowledged before you can further mature and develop spiritually.

    Hi Diana
    I am very confused about this person. He was my boss now I quit working for him. He really cares for me and he is about 15 year older than me. He is widow and I am married and love my family very much.
    This guys love me even after I told him I have no feeling for him. He try to take of all my needs even though I don’t want him to. But on my side I hate to be around him. I get irritate when he message me or call me. I hate to hear his voice or answer his call. He have not done anything bad to me but I just can’t stand him. He is saying he do not expect anything from me but just want to see me once in while for 5 minuts. I don’t understand how to deal with this situation. Ido t want to be mean to him but I get so irritate from his name even. What kind of energy he have. I hope you have answer for me. Thanks

    How does one, myself, who is a friend of someone who has taken on some negative energy from a group she was working with, help her? Is there anything I can do as a friend to this person to help them, comfort them, through this really hard time, as they are trying to “get back what was taken from them”?

    Hello,
    I just received a hug from a person in the office, and felt sudden bad feeling, and coldness, and like something else negative. He was well intentioned, but I am afraid I am feeling his negative vibes. How do I get rid of it? I don’t want his energies in my immediate field. I am so mad I hugged him!!

      Thanks for sharing! I have to say that feeling “afraid” and “mad” are negative vibes all by themselves, so instead of feeling negative about what happened, learn from it and let it go!

      We live in a world with negativity all around us, and the last thing we want is to generate it ourselves. Life is constantly teaching us something: this was a good lesson that prepares you to learn aura cleansing. We all need to clean our auras regularly, even when we haven’t been touched by someone with cold and unpleasant energy. I have written about how to clean your aura of negative energy all through this website. Start with these articles:

      http://myspiritcare.com/articles/the-smudging-ceremony-remove-bad-energy-with-sage-smoke

      As for being mad you hugged him: did he make the move to hug you, or did you offer one? My dear, go easy on yourself. In our society, one does not want to appear to offend because we are trained to comply and conform. We act out of impulse many times, doing what others do, without question. Now, you are aware, and what’s next is to work on the development of your personal boundaries. And practice all those ways you can deflect an unwanted embrace: stepping back, putting your arm out in front of you, turning away to do something, etc. You may also just say, “I don’t do hugs, but thank you, anyway.”

    Thanks for this great information. When I am around certain family members I am overcome with a sense of inertia. I don’t sense any “negativity,” but I am just unable to tackle chores or projects in their presence and feel almost paralyzed –when I’m by myself I’m very motivated and active. I’ll try the light bubble to see if this will energize me!

      Your description of your energy when around these people is diagnostic of what their energy does to you. Definitely use the Light protection!! And be aware of your reactions and energy levels when around them…it is probable you are forgetting to be fully yourself and instead, are deferring to their energies. You were trained to be this way, they expect you to defer, but oh, so sorry…too bad…they will have to accept you for what you are…or not. Emanate your own Light but do not absorb theirs.

      Thanks so much for your comment.

    Thankyou for your consice and helpful techniques for energy shielding! I have been trying to improve these skills for a long time and these are the first methods that have really clicked. I am dealing with a family who carries their stress deeply and copes using distraction and substance abuse. I am a very sensitive person and feel that they regularly discharge their stress and negative thought forms on me, unintentionally. I wish to resolve our relationship, and am wondering if you have any advice on how to approach the conversation/situation.

      Without having a private session with you, I can’t answer this definitively. I will remind you that addictive personalities often will project blame rather than take responsibility, thus…preventing recovery and healing. You love and want to help, naturally. But stand back: take stock. Does this person want help? Ask you for help? If not, understand you cannot heal or help someone who doesn’t want/ask for it. The only resolution is going to be on your end: don’t expect them to understand you, as dysfunctional people are not functioning normally! A simple, firm but kind statement such as, “Abuse is not welcome with me and if this continues I cannot have a relationship with you until such a time you can (fill in the blanks, such as ‘respect me’).” Negotiation is not an option with addicts, all of whom use manipulation in relationships. You have to state your terms and follow through. Say what you mean and mean what you say. “Tough love” is not mean. It’s often necessary and wise.

    I am hoping someone is still on this site. I came across this page while trying to find out how to get rid of this “bad” thing on me! I was trying to help a neighbor and she asked me to see if I could ‘feel’ anything evil in her-so we held hands and WOW I was blasted with something NOT good….I thought I kicked it out right away, but this is 3 weeks now that my heart is beating 135 bpm a headache that wont go away and doctors want to run loads of tests because they cant find what is ‘wrong’ with me…please help me put this ill energy back to the earth or anywhere else but the body I live in! thank you…

      Lisa, I’m sorry you are suffering so much! This was a difficult experience and a life lesson about wisdom. I hope other readers who are also prone to leap before they look will learn from your experience. We should not jump into things we are not trained for or not prepared to deal with.You describe an energy attachment to your aura, and there are ways to deal with this. First, your aura was vulnerable (open and unprotected) when you willingly took her hand to “feel” if she had “evil” in her. –Why would you do that? What did you think you could do to help her? Now that the deed is done, follow the links in my replies to other readers in this comment section and read the articles on how to clean your aura and get your energy strong again. This should take care of it. You can also contact me for an appointment.

    I wanted to take the time and thank you for your blog posts.

    I came about your web site by accident as I was searching for ways to rid myself of bad thoughts, energy, feelings etc. Over the past few months I have harboured bad feeling towards a family member through marriage. Our once tight knit family, or so I thought has been fractured by someone who has managed to manipulate by brother beyond belief. We are now outsiders looking in; we are trying to keep the line of commutation open in order to see grandkids/niece & nephew but get the standard line of they’re not feeling well.

    This has resulted in some very hurt feelings for me and my mother. We (my mother & I) had picked up a bad vibe from her right from the start of their dating; however we wanted to show support and since my brother liked her we accepted her and put our doubts to the side. Over the years we began to notice a gradual pull back from my brother becoming argumentative, quieter and more closed with his life… which I can understand as not everything is shared with your family. The final nail in the relationship was this summer; with the both of them totally ignore calls or not calling back after messages left on the phone.

    Anyhow, this has left me very bad thoughts, feeling and wishes towards them; which I know is bad in itself as what you wish on others can and will come back on you. I have found all your blog posts very helpful, insightful and will try my best to follow them. A good cleansing is in order. Thanks.

      Thank you for taking the time to share your challenge with our readers as so many people will relate to what’s been going on in your family. I’m so glad you’ve come to realize that there’s a better way to deal with the situation because this will free you so you can return to your beautiful, loving heart. It’s very hard to see the ones we love pull away…and in this case, apparently influenced by the company he has chosen for his life. These are very Soulful lessons…lessons about life, unconditional love, respect for another’s choices, and forgiveness. It’s also very much about self-love and looking deeper into the family dynamics we get stuck in. This has been a big spiritual lesson and I’m so very thankful you are taking the high road on this one; learning, seeking, and recognizing a need for purification from the things that have dragged you down.

      In so doing, you stand the greatest chance of helping your dear brother and other family members at some point down the road. Love heals: whether you see the evidence of that in the here-and-now is irrelevant: he is an eternal being and love (your genuine, forgiving love) will do him great good. And, isn’t this what love is all about? 🙂 You are taking love to a new level: you can let go, go on, and love him from a distance. Healing takes time, and lots of self-understanding, but I’m very confident you will see your way through this.

      I give you a joyful embrace of support in your endeavor. Thank you for being you.

    I am constantly drained of entergy. I have always been a positive person but for some reason I got down and can’t get back up. I am thankful for what I have. I don’t get to see my children much and it has caused intensr grief. I try to remain strong though . I can’t hardly go in public. I have always been adventurous and went everywhere with no problem. Everything negetive. Help! Need to be helping others. Its a waste.

      Hi, Jenn, thanks for commenting and for sharing. Bless your heart, I’m sorry you’re having a tough time. The fact that you want to help others is a testament to your inner strength, your Light, and your beautiful Spirit. What you are describing is a complicated dynamic, energetically and emotionally. Everybody gets down, but you’re telling me you’re having a hard time pulling out of it. On a public forum, there isn’t much I can say, except tp ask you to make an appointment with me so we can discuss these things in private.

      There are solutions and help is all around you, Jenn. I know you’ve been a strong and positive person in your life, and inside you still are! What you’re feeling now doesn’t have to be “permanent.” You are worn down and confused about what can be done to feel better and get more energy again. For now, I suggest that each day, you find three beautiful things. That’s right! 🙂 Find three beautiful things each day and focus on them. You will discover that by noticing beauty around you, by connecting to that beauty and taking the time to appreciate it, your mood will lift. Play uplifting music, and please, please, do something you like to do…maybe you don’t feel like it, maybe you’re not interested in anything, but to improve you have to push forward and expand what you love, in your life. It’s hard to be apart from your children, but it’s for a reason. It’s time to enlarge the circle of what you love in your life, and connect your beautiful heart to things and people around you.

      I hope I hear from you soon, and we can get started on specific steps…practical and spiritual…to get you through the trials and into your purpose. Feel comforted. You are loved. Ask Spirit to help, and take baby steps to fall in love with life again.

      And Jenn, please read my articles on how to have positive energy here:http://myspiritcare.com/articles/tips-techniques-to-have-positive-energy-and-a-good-aura-no-matter-what as well as how to overcome fear (a common cause of low energy) http://myspiritcare.com/articles/how-to-overcome-fear-with-spiritual-power how to clean your spiritual body for better energy: http://myspiritcare.com/articles/scrubbed-your-aura-lately and how to use spiritual ceremony (cleansing with sage) to improve your energy, here: http://myspiritcare.com/articles/the-smudging-ceremony-remove-bad-energy-with-sage-smoke

    II always felt energy when i was a younger girl im 17 now. I havent lived my life yet fully but somehow i always felt low. I’m actually high spirited bubbly but living with people who are terribly miserably and getting worse It does take a toll on me as it would to anyone. I live with parents that arent mine but i look at them as such. There are a numerous of aspects to one situation but overall I trying slowly to get my spirit back because now its done taking a mental toll but a physical one too. But in some cases i feel really spiritually sensitve. Im not too sure and i never have anyone to talk to about such things.

      Jae,

      Thank you for sharing. You’re very special and I hope you know that. You ARE spiritual and you need to have friends that understand you and respect you. Connect to metaphysical groups, take a class in spirituality, energy healing, and read books on these topics. Learn about the “old ways” such as shamanism and earth-centered wisdoms. Your energetic spirit is to get you through life, so protect it. Don’t let others drain you of what life force you were born with. They don’t know better and can’t help you find your authentic self, but now is the time to get involved in constructive learning: things that excite you!”Women Who Run With the Wolves” by Claressa Pinkola Estes is a good book for you…it will help you see that being different and “high spirited” is a very good thing. Blessings on your life path, Jae.

    With this has come the realization that all the negative stuff I’d felt my whole life was there for a reason. It was a result of things that had happened, a natural outcome of some very horrific circumstances. Having negative energy within myself didn’t make me a bad person. It really wasn’t a negative or positive judgment on myself (or anyone else) at all; it was simply being aware of what was there.

      I’m glad this article has helped you and your point about the awareness of the energy that’s “out there” is very wise. May you continue to discover the brilliant Light that you are and find joy in each of your days, for Joy is what you are, deep down inside.

    I live with my mother who is draining the life out of me. I am on financial assistance and do not have the mental faculties of a normal adult to leave. There is no person I can call for help. I feel horrible that I may also be draining others as I am experiencing energies that discourage sleep for weeks on end. I feel energies swirling around my body and I feel vulnerable. I feel that I cannot leave this tiny apartment with my mother who, God bless her, I cannot stand. I want to move into a new environment, she does not need to change although the apartment is crumbling from age. It is not home to me. People tell me to do this or to do that but not only am I physically weak but have no innate ability to survive in the adult world as an adult. How does one protect their aura in a situation like this?

      Michelle, thank you for commenting and for your question. My heart goes to you for the suffering you are going through! While there are no in-depth answers that can be given in a comment, there are some suggestions that can greatly help if you will follow them.

      Protecting your aura is also about warding off discouragement and despair. What you are asking is about how to stay positive and make changes in your life when it seems there is no way out, when you feel too drained and exhausted to do anything.

      There are certainly situations that make us feel so trapped and overwhelmed that we scarcely know what to do. First, it’s really very important to do whatever you can to move beyond the immediate sense of hopelessness. Think about the bigger picture: realize that you are a Divine Spiritual Being in physical form going through great trials, so common to physical existence. As bad as things are, you’re here for a purpose! Don’t let this confuse you, or frustrate you if you can’t figure it all out right now because when in distress we cannot achieve clarity.

      The obvious first step is to find calm and peace in your situation. This is where you are: please don’t resist and find a way within yourself to simply accept what it is for the time being. Change will occur and new opportunities will come, but you have to trust life and begin to work with it, starting where you are today.

      When things get this difficult, don’t ask “why me” but begin to count the ways in which you have things to be thankful for. I understand you dislike being there, but please stop for a moment and think about how many people don’t have any place to live…you do, even though it’s not where you want to be right now…and be thankful for the shelter that you do have. There are many things we can all be thankful for if we will stop focusing on the things we dislike or don’t want. Yes, it’s very difficult, I know that, but you are the only one who can change your circumstance by first changing your viewpoint.

      We all suffer more when we argue with what is: when we argue with reality. Things happen for a reason and life is our teacher, so remind yourself that this hardship will pass. For now, it’s needful to accept what is. This does not mean you are giving up or consenting to be miserable: it means you are finding whatever goodness is around you. It means you are determined to have a a more peaceful state of mind so you can begin to build a better life.

      What is true today may not be true tomorrow. You say you have no ability to survive in the adult world, but as sure as the sun rises, your life will undergo change that you cannot yet foresee. Accept that you will be provided for and even allow that you will one day be able to be independent!! This is a dream and a goal, is it not? So whether you one day live with someone else or on your own, know that by finding peace within yourself today, you are on your way to creating a future that nurtures you.

      Positive attitudes make a positive aura. Please read http://myspiritcare.com/articles/tips-techniques-to-have-positive-energy-and-a-good-aura-no-matter-what-2 and also http://myspiritcare.com/articles/scrubbed-your-aura-lately for easy steps you can take to feel better. Also, please consider having a daily spiritual practice: http://myspiritcare.com/articles/december-8-2011-a-daily-practice-for-spiritual-protection-and-strength

      Lastly, spend time outside with nature. Make your own private space as pretty and pleasing as you can. Take care of your body as best you can. Smile; love; laugh more. Life loves you. Love life back, no matter what’s going on in your life. These are steps and although they may seem difficult, go ahead. Take the steps. You will see amazing and wonderful things occur.For now, here’s a special hug just for you: may you find the strength to take these steps and may peace and joy be with you.

        Thank you for your tips on how to deal with the negative energy of another person and looking for signs there is a need to walk away. But what if we are unable to do this because the person has mental health issues and is a mother in law? Point 2 above and point 6 struck particular resonance with me. Those are all she speaks about. Itis exhausting being in her prescence. , As a mother myself I can see our twice a month visits to her, are now also making my eldest son slightly uncomfortable. My other child is too young to notice. When I leave her prescence I have a head ache, feel very unsociable and disturbed for up to a week. In the past year my symptoms from being near her have increased I don’t want my children to not see their grandmother. I dread visiting her and how awful I feel after. I will try the technique of creating a bubble around me, thank you.

          I’m so glad I could help, Sarah! You will get relief with your efforts, so be strong in your visualization of the Light around you and through you. Mental health issues or not, given your symptoms after being around her, your mother-in-law is an energy vampire.No mistake!

          But one more thing, Sarah: observe your dynamic with your mother-in-law and begin to change it. For example, she draws energy from you by demanding your attention and your interaction, so don’t get drawn in to what she is saying. In situations like this, it’s more than acceptable to NOT pay attention. Don’t let her emotions or her words in. Think about something positive when she is being negative…let her voice trail away; nod once in awhile and change the subject often. Take control of the conversation. Cut off her negative words. Don’t let her dominate the conversation and when she does, be disinterested. This will disconnect the energy exchange that goes on when she locks into your aura and begins to drain it. She can’t catch and latch onto the energy you deflect, so don’t make yourself a target by paying close attention to her.

          After your visit with her, get a little exercise to re-invigorate your energy, take a salt bath or shower, change your clothes, and unplug your thoughts from her.

          As for your children, you need to know they are particularly vulnerable. I suggest that you limit their time in her presence; give them something to do around her house instead of sitting at her feet, so to speak. Make your visits very brief. Given the description of your symptoms, it’s an easy decision: you and your children’s welfare, versus her energy appetite.

          We are trained from the time we are young to honor family “obligations” and to be “polite” even when it’s harmful to us, but this is not a cosmic law. It’s society’s unspoken expectation and all-too-often, we end up doing what we think we should do instead of what we really should do. Don’t put her welfare first, under the circumstances, and know you are free to reconsider your idea about your children needing a forced relationship with a grandmother who may not be good for them.

          Really, the way you are feeling is telling you that this is not a healthy relationship. Managing your energy is all about taking control of your choices and who you associate with; I know you are a good person but that does not mean you must go through the motions of “doing the right thing” when it’s genuinely harmful to you and your children.
