As an empath, I can feel the presence of psychic energy within and around me. I am extremely sensitive to energy vampires, and it is easy to spot ‘good’ and ‘bad’ people by a simple parameter of whether they try to subtly steal psychic energy. Though it is not always that simple or obvious. Often people close to you can unconsciously drain you of energy. I have also had several encounters with strangers who are so energetically evolved that they naturally radiate warmth and positive energy.

I had a curious experience in early July this year. A group of us were at a pub celebrating the completion of a course, and I was talking to a poet who was the first person I had met on the course – as a team of two, we had exchanged our first assignments and introduced each other to our cohort. As we recollected the memory, a woman who had been standing close to us chipped in, ‘and then it all went downhill’. She said it a smirk indicating that it was a joke and we laughed politely. ‘It all went downhill, downhill’ she kept repeating again and again. As a sentimental person who believes in the power of words, I found her words distasteful and inauspicious. I reversed them mentally, and yet they still left a bad taste in the mind. There is no point in being polite and positive to such beings who wish ill on others, even in jest.

I finally did a meditation invoking Archangel Michael to cut away the energetic cords with her and placed a mental mirror between me and her. I don’t expect to see this woman again. But if our paths were to ever cross again, I will make sure to avoid her in order to keep free from her negativity.


So Mary-Jane, whether you read this or not, I have cut the cords of any friendship that may have existed between us and placed a mirror shielding me from your ill-wishes. Everything that you said about ‘it all goes downhill’ reflects and returns right back to you as many times as you said it and as per the law of karma, three times over.
