“People inspire you or they drain you – attract them wisely.” ― Hans F. Hansen
I am often asked by my clients how to deal with the people in their life who they find to be challenging and difficult. My reply is always to ask this question:
“What are these people saying to you that upsets you?”
Once they tell me their answer, then I ask:
“Do you ever say something similar about yourself?”
Their answer is always, ‘Yes!’
Which is what led to my conclusion that the fastest way to release energy vampires from our lives is to stop sucking our own energy dry!
When I speak about me in ways that are demeaning, it is as if I have created an opening though which my power can drain dry….which lowers my energy.
And, taking into account the Law of Attraction, it is easy to understand how and why I would attract challenging and demanding people when I am already feeling low.
It is not that those other people drained my energy.
It’s more true that when I am challenged by other people, it is a clue that I have already drained my own energy and I simply do not have the power — or compassion — to give to anyone else.
Each night, just before I fall asleep, I review my day and I acknowledge myself for all my accomplishments and the positive qualities I demonstrated during the day just ended.
In this way, I lift my energy and re-generate my power. I feel my body relax, my mind gently becomes quiet, and my spirit feels calm. I fall asleep almost instantly — sometimes while I am still acknowledging myself — and I sleep soundly through the night.
It works each and every time!
And this is my #1 way to vanquish my own energy-draining vampires!!
