Most people know all about keeping their possessions safe from robbers, but there’s another kind of thief you should watch out for…

…the Energy Vampire.

Also known as an Energy Thief.

The energy thief robs you of one of the most important things in your life, your energy, leaving you feeling tired and drained.


What Is The Aura? energy_thief1

The aura is the glowing energy that emits from and surrounds the human body. It acts as a shield protecting you from negative energies.

Your aura is a field of energy, which surrounds all living things. It’s an egg-shaped energy field, which surrounds your body. Your aura reflects the current state of your thoughts, feelings, and emotions.

In most cases, your aura is made up of layers of colors which surround you. Your aura not only mirrors what is going on inside of you, it also shows your overall wellness –physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

Your aura also acts like a second skin, serving as a protective shield against negative energies in the environment and from the people around you. It is a vital part of your life force.


How Will You Recognize An Energy Thief or Vampire?


You’ve probably come across energy thieves (Energy Vampires) before.  These are people who just seem to suck the life out of you.

An energy thief is someone who unknowingly drains your energy just by being around you, or by interacting with you.

Interacting with an Energy Vampire who steals your energy, even for a few minutes, will leave you feeling exhausted.

Energy thieves give off a bad vibe and are usually surrounded by negativity. So they feed off your energy.

Energy thieves are:

  • Always complaining
  • Negative
  • Needy
  • Gossipy

Now you know what energy thieves are, how will you know if someone is stealing your energy?

In a few seconds, you’ll learn all the signs to watch for when someone is stealing your energy, along with what you can do to stop it.


Signs Your Energy Is Being Stolen


Your energy is in danger of being stolen every time you interact with a negative, needy, complaining, or gossipy person.

Knowing the signs to look for will help you spot energy thieves and protect your aura from being drained.


  1. Someone greets you in a very friendly manner then suddenly changes their mood.


You might come across individuals who will greet you warmly or happily at first like you’re the best person they’ve seen all day.

However, once the pleasantries are done and they got you hooked in on the conversation, they’ll quickly change their mood.

They’ll suddenly become surly or start to talk about a depressing topic. This type of energy thief will suffocate your aura with the negative energy they give off.  

How To Stop Them:

You can stop them from draining your energy by simply smiling at them. The act of smiling helps give off positive energy, countering-acting an energy thief’s sudden mood swings and protecting your own energy field.


  1. Someone is trying to drag you down to their level


Energy thieves who are dragging you down to their level want you to feel what they’re feeling, too. They want someone to empathize with them. As they’re trying to get your mood to match theirs, they are also subtly sucking your energy dry.

For example, you may have a friend who keeps on calling you and asking for help with a problem. After giving your counsel, your friend will feel better but you’ll be spent.

This type of energy thief isn’t getting energy from your intentionally. Most of the time, they just need guidance and support.

How To Stop Them:

What you can do is offer a few positive words of advice and change the subject to a lighter tone after. Most people need help from time to time and your words of encouragement will go a long way.


  1. Someone is trying to make you feel bad for them energy_thief2

Distance yourself from people who are always complaining about their situation so they will not deplete your positive energy.


You may know someone who keeps on complaining about not having a job but doesn’t really try hard to find one. They often become argumentative when you try to give logical advice or become resentful of your positive attitude.

These energy thieves have self-pitying behavior but show no signs of wanting to take responsibility for their own energy. 

Constant interaction with such energy thieves will deplete your positive energy. So you will need to think about letting these people go or make sure you interact with them sparingly.

Having a healthy relationship with these types of energy thieves is almost impossible. You shouldn’t feel guilty about wanting to distance yourself from them.

How To Stop Them:

There’s a very big chance they will keep functioning as a victim if their behavior is allowed to continue. Cutting ties with these types, or showing them you’re moving on, can gently force them to find their inner strength and to conquer their own hardships.


  1. Someone is trying to make problems bigger than they really are


Energy thieves often try to blow things out of proportion – especially their problems. They overreact to the less important things in life and greet everything with a pessimistic view.

You see this kind all the time. This energy thief exclaims that the whole day is ruined just because a barista didn’t the right amount of syrup in their coffee, or they complain over and over again about having to walk an extra five minutes, simply because the parking spaces closer to the office was taken.

How To Stop Them:

Make sure to share an optimistic view with this energy thief instead of letting them overreact. They’ll have a more positive attitude once they realize great things can be learned from natural human experiences.


  1. Someone is trying to make you focus on the negative


Energy thieves who want you to focus on the bad side of things fuel themselves with your energy, and will make sure you don’t have any positive energy left for yourself after interacting with them.

These types often try to make you feel like nothing is going your way and will fill your head with doubt. They’ll point out the negative things in life and will make you feel like you don’t deserve to have positive energy.

How To Stop Them:

You have to immediately think of things that make you happy or do something you enjoy after encountering these energy thieves. Take your mind off whatever they were saying and act as if nothing happened. This will send a message to them that they should take their negativity somewhere else.
