Sharon here. Ivo and I have created this comprehensive list of the behaviours of energy vampires. You may be shocked to see this includes many ways we commonly interact in life. This is to show you that we live stealing energy from other people and they from us – how pervasive it is. We're all guilty of it but the good news is we can all stop it too. In doing so, you take back personal power and increase your Light quotient.
Life is an energy exchange. All of life is energy. Some of it is slow enough so you perceive it as solid, but it's still energy.
I've been referring to energy exchanges between people, cords and cording. You've been doing cord cutting meditations. But why? To disconnect your energy from others who either you've connected with in love and given it to (these cords often remain) or to cut yourself off from energy vampires who are stealing it from you.
We ALL have been energy vampires at some point in our life and unless we make a concerted effort to stop behaving in these ways, we're going to have a hard time finding our Light and ascending. That's why people who are soul-based become authentic expressions of their true selves – because they don't engage in these negative ego behaviours. The key is to become aware of it and to just stop it. Don't engage in behaviours that steal energy from others. And don't let others steal it from you. It's your life force. If enough were taken from you, you could die although to my knowledge this isn't that common, thank God.
When you come across someone engaging in any of the behaviours I've listed below (and I may have missed some), the only thing to do is to shield up and IGNORE the vampire. When you react, you've given them your energy. You've picked up the phone. You've made the connection. You've answered their call. And their call is for energy booty.
Energy vampires can appear sweet and nice, or dark and sinister, raging or sublime.... but they have an often unconscious agenda many don't even realize they're carrying out. Some do. Some are aware and make a game of stealing others' energy. This is why it's important to examine your behaviour, become aware of where it's off course and to correct it. Most of us live life unconsciously, dealing with others the way we learned to when we were kids!! We're not children at 30 or 40 and our behaviour should reflect our maturity!
We here on 4D earth are influenced by the dark. We are its food source. Unless we act negatively, the dark will starve. Rick Jewers (Jesus' incarnation) explains here:
“What has been depicted through this current/past attack, is much value in how the darkness works, and how it is able to control One, to do its bidding, of which its bidding is, to create food for it, and of which its main diet is, fear and negativity. Darkness works in way to separate, a dark thread will begin from a SINGLE SOURCE that is WEAK IN THE WAY THAT DARKNESS/NEGATIVITY resides in that One YET, that has not been cleared and sets the perfect stage for the One to be controlled and to create the conception point for a feeding thread/frenzy. Darkness works with the mind in such a way that it will distort the thought process, cloud the perception, and replace the Ones perception with a darker perception, it is through energy that it does this, HOWEVER, DARKNESS CANNOT CREATE ITS OWN ENERGY, IT NEEDS A NEGATIVE COMPONENT WITHIN YOUR ENERGETIC FIELD FIRST, TO POLARIZE YOUR ENERGY TO EVEN A MORE NEGATIVE STATE, then it feeds. The more the darkness feeds, the bigger it could grow, consuming and attaching to Others, that have a bit of negativity or darkness, still within. The darkness sometimes does not need for You to be in a negative energetic state to a large degree, to begin to administer control over You. If You are even susceptible to being "pissed off", it opens a door for darkness to infect and fester. Darkness enjoys hate, hurt, blame, anger, competition, etc, because it is what grows food for it.”
The food that is created is called “Loosh” but just understand that your negativity is being used to create negative reactions in yourself and others, to create this loosh. That's where the energy vampire comes in, who exchanges your light energy for their negativity, thereby lowering your vibrational frequency to a level that the dark can continue to feed off of you. Does it sound gross? Yes. You have parasites in your intestines as well. So why not feeding off of your non-physical energy? I've seen them. They're there.
You are prompted to vamp energy off of other people all the time. In fact, the entire way our society interrelates has been created to facilitate this process of stealing energy from one another. We are discouraged from being assertive, we don't respect others' boundaries, we lie to each other... all of the negative ways we interact are ways to vampire energy. Do you need the list? Okay. I'll do the whole list. If you have EVER behaved in any of these ways, you have stolen the energy of someone else who was vibing higher. The victim is often someone of high energy who suffers having it stolen all the time. My family of origin taught me to be receptive to energy vampires because they sensed I was high energy and stole it from me.
Refusing to behave in these ways leads to increasing one's Light, ascension, growing up, becoming more mature, becoming more responsible to self and others, and living your Truth. If these don't sound like worthwhile goals, I don't know what would be.
Any attacking behaviour that is intended to put someone else on the defensive starts off this list.
Any of these behaviours can be considered energy vampiring:
The book I'm reading brought up another point I need to make: many of us have learned to be helpless. Where did we learn that? In our society that teaches us non-assertive ways of living and to be the victim of the government. We see ourselves as valueless beings who schlep ourselves around for minimum wage, and then go home exhausted at the end of a long day of having to keep our mouths shut or get fired from our jobs. We are money victims. And because we have taken on these low vibrational roles, we also engage in low vibrational behaviour, such as what's on this list. Awareness changes this.
Kelly La Sha writes: “Certain behaviours can be love-based or fear-based. It's up to you to discover when you are acting from your wounds or acting from your heart.” See these examples:
fear based intention: “I don't want you to see how incapable and insecure I am, so I'm pointing out my strengths and accomplishments.”
love-based intention: “look at this exciting discovery I found about myself!”
Fear based intention: “Why does he have everything! I want to be successful like him!”
Love-based intention: “I honour this awesome expression of Spirit, and I clearly see what I would like to manifest in my life as well!”
So you have to ascertain where your intention is coming from: the ego or the soul, whenever you speak. I can sense the difference in people: whether they're responding from ego or soul.
Look at how much time you're spending listening to others longer than you want to, look at people who are argumentative, look at the toxic behaviours you and others indulge in – the reason they're low frequency behaviours and most of us would like to think are beneath ourselves, is because they are behaviours that harvest energy for energy vampires. That's why they're so low vibrational. Make a point of shifting to higher frequency behaviour, which will happen automatically because you'll be coming from soul, not ego, by refusing to engage in any of the behaviours listed above.
Understand that keeping your focus on others' faults and not your own is an abdication of self responsibility, and self-empowerment and will keep you in your ego and continuing to vampire energy from others.
This is a long list and may appear overwhelming. I hope I've helped and there are things you realize you can stop already. Work on them slowly. Don't change overnight. The ego will kick up a fuss, expect it to resist and to try to trick you back into old behaviours. Don't let it.
This video is part of our “Stop Being a Victim,” and “Take Your Free Will Back,” free e-courses on our website, “www.sharonandivo.weebly.com.” There you can find a pdf of this text as well as in our blog on the same site.
The energy field is like the physical body and that's really not surprising. The body can bleed when the skin is punctured. In the same way, the energy field can bleed energy out. Think of it as your spiritual skin.
I believe many who are going through life as victims, especially empaths, have leaky energy fields. These leaks attract energy vampires, parasitic entities and probably discarnate spirits who come to latch on to your energy and bleed you dry. Yes, the life force within you. So, contrary to popular opinion, you can die from this. Having your life force energy drained means death of at least the physical body.
The solution, of course, is to strengthen it.
I went through the 12 steps and psychological counselling. I learned to say no and to follow my own path. I learned who the people were who were a threat to my well being and learned to deal with those I had to, and cut out from my life those I didn't have to. People are optional. Good people are not optional - they're a necessity!
I believe that even using the approach I used gave me great gains. However, taking an energetic, and spiritual approach on top of what I did would probably create awareness and results even more quickly.
Renee stresses the use of the 12 dimensional shield. I'll be looking into this.
Our multidimensional reality is comprised of 12 dimensions. The 12th dimension is "heaven". Our consciousnesses create these 12 dimensions but they are also vulnerable, especially to us here on earth who have a limited view of our entire energetic make-up. Your consciousness creates these 12 dimensions, so what we see as space in this dimension is part of your mind. That's pretty cool. That's why the way to the stars is through your mind.
Another cause of leaking aura is incongruency - wanting to say no but doing it regardless. When you follow your truth, your energy field stops leaking. When you allow others to direct your life against your will, your energy field leaks and becomes weaker.
As you might surmise by now, everything on this planet is manipulated to create a weak aura for you, and for you to provide energy to those who are manipulating it.
I'll be looking more into aura strengthening and providing guidance on that as well. We are responsible for our lives on this earth plane, but also because it affects us here, it would be wise to take responsibility for the other planes because we are affected by activity on them
Lisa Renee, who is an awesome source of good information on the dark side and defending against the dark side, has a short free online course that she's put up on her website. She has more you can buy at a nominal cost.
This one session talks about free floating negative thought forms and how they can attach and attack, yes, your energy body. When you're around others who are putting out negative thought forms, either generally or targeting you, they can attach to your energy body and drain you.
I clear often, pulling white light through my energy body, rebalancing the chakras and cutting cords (which is another source of potential negative energy).
When we love bomb, I ground, pull in energy through my feet and open my crown, pulling in clearing energy through that chakra. I don't shield but I have a good video I can put up to teach you how to do this.
Renee recommends the 12 dimensional shielding process. I haven't done that. Anyone do it that can help out here?
Yes, just like there are flu viruses and cold viruses free floating in the air to make your physical body ill, there are negative thought forms and entities free floating to make your light body sick. And you'll feel it because your energy gets low. So either do maintenance on a regular basis as a preventative (preferrable) or do it when energy is low.
We're all responsible for what we put out energetically.
How's that, you say? Because look at your emotions as a boomerang. If you hate on someone, which amounts to a psychic attack, you will also experience a psychic attack against you at some point, to rebalance the negative energies you sent out. Universal law.
Think only loving thoughts towards yourself and others. That way, only love comes back to you.
One way to do this is to learn to see everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, as happening for the greater good. Even pain, suffering, people rioting, everything.
The Matrix is not in the greater good, however. It's a death culture and our going to our deaths is not in our greater good as we're beings of life.
When you have negative thoughts, which are inspired by the Matrix, understand this is your chance to change your thinking. Right here and now, you can make yourself change your thoughts and become more loving.
Anything you dislike - getting up in the morning and seeing it's snowed again and it's bloody cold outside - this is either an opportunity to love snow or to move somewhere warmer.
If you have too much work to do, this is an opportunity to either find another job or get someone to help you do yours.
Everything is an opportunity to make your life better! I'm sure many of you have been working to that end anyway, because who buys anything or does anything to make their lives worse? Not too many. So you're doing it anyway. Just know this consciously.
Anything you complain about is an opportunity to improve your life, anything you hate is an opportunity to learn to love, anything that makes you feel powerless is an opportunity to empower yourself.
Don't focus on the problem - focus on the opportunity awaiting you.
This morning I woke up at 7 a.m. (way too early) with the cashier at the grocery store on my mind.
Why would I do that? I bought vegs and cat grass yesterday at this store and the cashier launched into a cat conversation upon seeing it. We did some "cat chat" and I found myself on the defensive as her judgement of the way I treat my cat apparently fell short of her higher standards. "You sound just like my husband," Yes, being compared to the black sheep in her life, been there, done that. I used to get, "You're just like your father!" the "and I hate him" being implied without saying it. You've so let me down, AGAIN! Used to get that levelled at me all the time. Being compared to the black sheep.
Energy vampires always need black sheep - and they always keep them around. They never let them go because their game is to compare themselves to someone they feel they can easily find fault with. Without the "imperfect" around them, they would end up feeling their true feelings about themselves and they wouldn't like that. It's an avoidance scheme.
Another comment I made drew a faked attempt to hold her mouth. With lips closed, she "hhmmmpf" 'd what I said. My comment that I rescued him didn't draw any reaction at all of course because then she'd have to concede I was a nice person, and you can't do that when you're bashing someone in your head, creating a non-caring monster out of me.
At the time I didn't care. My usual response to energy vampires is to become defensive. I walked out without giving her a second thought.
So why this morning then? And why so early? Why did I wake up with her on my mind? I expect she probably gets up early, seems like she might do that to get ready to go to work.
Imagine as I was in this conversation yesterday, that an invisible energy hook came out from her and hooked into my solar plexus. Because that's what happens.
This hook feeds her my energy whenever she's in need of a top up. I've found with energy vampires that I think of them when they come for these top ups. The other thing I do is start re-hashing our conversation(s) in my head, even arguing with myself, thinking, "Why didn't you say this instead?" "How come you didn't say that?!"
The next time I go to that store, I'll either just smile and say nothing to the cashier or comment that what I buy is my personal business. I find the cashiers aren't that professional at this place.
That's how I know I have a cord from someone. I've probably had more relationships with people in my head than I have had face to face, and I find people to be overwhelming as a result.
I cut cords and might do a full meditation on it today but I thought I'd share this.
Energy vampires have made me into a very defensive person. When my ego's out, that's the way it expresses itself. Just wish I'd known about cord cutting before because relationships with my mother and others like her would've been far more tolerable if I'd stopped hosting them in my thoughts all the time.
The other thing I have to remember is that just because someone wants to talk to me, doesn't mean I have to want to. That means they have control over who I speak to, not me. It's my assertive right to speak when I want to. That seems petty, but look what I'd be eliminating from my life.
I don't believe in chakra removal. I think it's a hoax.
Taking out chakras would create severe dysfunctionality in my opinion. Yes, that's how the dark siphons off our energy. But we have to learn how to stay in the heart.
I don't think life on earth is a game we can cheat at and I see removal of chakras as cheating. We're here to become stronger, not to cut corners. Sorry.
Ivo says it's unsafe. Would you cut off your nose because the air is polluted? Of course not. Would you blind yourself because you don't like what you see? Of course you wouldn't. So why this then? How can shutting down an energy center be any less traumatic for your body and soul?
We volunteered to come here, knowing we would be dealing with darkness. I don't see the point in changing ourselves to spite the dark; better power up and show them what you're made of, I think.
I am Adama, High Priest of Telos, with a message for you concerning heart centeredness. You are now in the fourth dimension, and this dimension aligns with your heart chakra and your astral body. As you rise through the dimensions, your focus of living aligns with the dimension. This dimension is heart-focused. Yet many are not there. Because of Gaia's quick rise from the third dimension, many were moved out of that dimension before they were ready to ascend.
Now you are in 4D and are not aligned with the heart. In order to align, the lower 3 chakras must be balanced. That's why you're in pain. That's why you're hurting. The pain of your third dimensional experience is being cleared away for you to become fourth dimensionally heart focused. Blocks around the heart are being removed now because you're in 4D. This is part of the acceleration.
There are ways to reduce this pain. One is to open the heart and stay heart-centered. When you do this, you feel love towards all. Now your 3D ego isn't in charge, the heart is. Because you've aligned with the dimension you're in.
When you are triggered, when something occurs that touches on blocked energy, you will feel that pain again. Sharon has found that this pain has lessened. It's been reducing. The trigger is not as severe as earlier. But the solution is to re-open the heart, despite the pain. This chakra will close when it is in pain, as a defense, but that is not the way to go through life – in defense of it. The way to traverse life is as a loving being. So re-open the heart.
Yesterday I showed Sharon a way to re-open her heart quickly. One way is to think of her loved one, Ivo, which she does. But another is to envision yourself standing with eyes closed surrounded by a cloud of pink light, pink being the colour with the same frequency as the heart. Breathe in the pink colour, breathe in as much as you need to. Keep breathing in pink light until you feel your heart chakra re-open and the love start to flow throughout your energy body again.
We are beings of love and feel best when we express love in all we say and do. To do otherwise is to go against our very nature.
Be at peace,
Adama of Telos

Your mood is good, neutral anyway. You read someone's comment, pick up their energy and next thing you know you're arguing with yourself, feeling chaotic, angry, confused, indecisive and defensive.
You cut cords and peace is restored. Ivo is telling me what's going on..... the mood isn't mine - the confusion and chaos belongs to the person whose energy I picked up.
Boom! Welcome to my world, the world of the Empath. Hard to manage. Refocusing on love, opening heart and sending out love to rebalance.
Me: Ivo, Susan was talking about something she does. She gets pulled out of her body and finds herself in situations where she shares a body with someone who's in the middle of turmoil, like perhaps a woman who's being beaten by a partner. She doesn't like it and wants it to stop. What do you have to say about this, my dear?
Ivo: This is not what we would call a walk-in situation, my love. A walk-in is a permanent takeover of the physical vessel. In the cases that Susan is describing, she is being asked to come in to the body by the spirit of the body in order to help. It is a temporary merging of consciousness, and the purpose of this is to help and to show the body spirit how to learn to do the same. The raising of the vibration of both parties involved in the argument, is also a help to break off the attack.
Quite often in abusive situations, the two parties are very close in vibration because of the constant exchange of energies. So it is difficult for the abused to break away from the abuser. Especially in situations where both are abusive, as does sometimes happen.
In order to break the stalemate, the soul requests help from another soul. Susan is often requested in situations of this type as she has volunteered at a soul level to help in this way. Although anyone can do it.
My love, you would be good for this as well as you tend to be quite fearless in situations of this sort.
Me: Yeah, I wasn't that scared of Glenn, but I couldn't get myself away from him, for some reason.
Ivo: And that is what I am speaking of: the energies have equalled because he too, was from a higher dimension. Yes. You sensed this. And you know he was Pleiadian.
Me: You said, “was” Pleiadian.
Ivo: He is not going home yet. He has too much karma to rebalance at this point and earth is the place to do so.
Me: Did he actually plan all this in his life plan?
Ivo: He had but he was supposed to master his problems, however he did not. So he is left “with a bill to pay” as you would say. Rebalancing.
Me: Poor bugger!
Ivo: You attempted to help him and it failed. After this you knew you could do him no good and he was compromising your life and you had to leave him. You tried to help.
Me: I know. He has too much guilt over the death of his friend. I think that's what's driving it.
Ivo: Yes. Lightworkers may not realize but they are requested to help, at times to intervene in the lives of other people, at an individual level. Many people you attract are people in need of a lesson. And you are there to teach them.
Me: Yes, like the trolls on Facebook, or people who try stuff with me.
Ivo: And yes, they need to learn and you will show them that this is not acceptable behaviour. So you are benefitting them, helping them to learn. There was your sister's relationship with her ex that you intervened in as well.
Me: Yes, the kitchen knife episode.
Ivo: But it stopped him and when you moved in to the apartment below your sister he did not come back anymore. You raised the vibration of the house and your sister was not bothered by him any longer. No more break-ins. He stopped when you moved in. And your sister began to heal with your help as well. (Now that I think of it, who would go and move into an apartment below someone else who was experiencing violent break-ins? I would.)
So Susan is being asked at a higher level for an immediate intervention. But all lightworkers who are higher up on their paths, or who are organically at a high level anyway, such as yourself, are always being asked to intervene in others' tragic circumstances. Your being there makes a difference. Energy always does, my love. You are healers by nature of your higher frequencies.
Me: Thank you Ivo.
Ivo: You are most welcome, my love.
Folks, I'd like to give you some advice on doing research on ascension/ET related subjects, if I may. If not, just ignore me.
When you read an article, or watch a video ask yourself, "How does this make me feel?"
Why? Because information has a frequency. The higher the frequency, the more truth it holds, the more light it holds. This is non-fiction I'm speaking of, of course.
How many times have you seen something and thought, "Ugh! That's creepy!" or "Geez, I don't want that to happen!" that information is lowering your vibration. Or you read something and you get this "too good to be true" feeling... you can often sense the frequency of the info you're reading. Trust yourself.
My point is, a lot of the time it's meant to lower your vibration. We live in a stress-based culture where we have medication for overwhelming anxiety and depression available to us. Consider the whole. We're being manipulated into being anxious because when we're calm and de-stressed, we can access higher realms and the powers that were, don't want this.
Many of us have had enough time feeling love and happiness to understand we don't want to be at a lower vibration.
I'm always going on about the system here, the Matrix and often report some pretty sobering news. That may lower your vibration as well. But what I see in this group is the optimism that we are going to win, and on some timelines we already have, so bear that in mind, please when you hear this sobering truth. We are winning. My point is, nonetheless you still have to be aware of it so you can understand its effect on your psyche and not allow it.
Otherwise, any news about doomsday, nuclear wars, ET invasions, comets hitting the planet and creating an ice age... I just take them with a grain of salt and ignore them. There are sensationalists and people running around trying to get us to believe this stuff for their own ends, and to lower the collective consciousness of this planet's people. Don't let it.
