Calling all fellow bookworms, library nerds, and general lovers of literature — it’s time for another book club episode of the podcast!
Whenever there are five Fridays in a month, we devote the extra Friday to a book that we can’t get enough of. This time we decided to have a conversation about a rampant problem that a LOT of people in our audience are likely suffering through — being preyed upon by energy vampires.
One in five people is on the vampire spectrum (YES, you read that right), which means you’ve known many throughout your life, and have likely been preyed upon by more than one.
If you’re an empath, highly sensitive person, people pleaser, peacemaker, or anyone who has difficulty enforcing boundaries with other people, this conversation about Dodging Energy Vampires: An Empath’s Guide to Evading Relationships that Drain You and Restoring Your Health and Power by Christiane Northrup, M.D. is going to hit home for you!
We talked about:
- The type of people who are tasty prey to an energy vampire, and how to tell if you’re an easy mark.
- How to spot an energy vampire from a mile away.
- How to set hard boundaries, escape the drama, say no, and steer clear of the people who are draining your energy and making you miserable (even if they’re a member of your family).
- How to heal the wounds and blind spots that made you susceptible to energy vampires, so that the pattern can’t repeat itself.
Leave us a comment below after you’ve listened and let us know if you’ve been an inadvertent snack to an energy vampire, and how you’re going to start shutting that down ASAP!
