Protecting your energy from negative Nancys/ negatrons aka energy vampires 🧛
Can we just talk about energy vampires, aka negative nancys/ negheads/ negatron aka the people you spend 5 minutes with & feel like they've sucked out your soul... 🧛
We all know those people who alllllll they do is moan and bring down the vibe of the room.
You know the times when you spend 10 minutes with someone and feel like your soul has being sucked out. (Where's the Harry Potter fans at? You know the dementors...). Basically the human version of them (I can guarantee right now you're thinking of someone, don't even lie & say you're not 😂😂)!
You go into a room or for lunch with good, positive energy, spend some time with X person (we'll call her Pam), then leave your time together feeling down, like wtf just happened, as if you've just absorbed all the bad vibes and bad energy from the room. Well guess what... you have.
We literally absorb the vibrations around us.
Then there's the times when someone who is just a ray of sunshine enters the room and they light the whole room up. They bring such a great energy to the room, you can't help but feel good after spending time with them. You've absorbed their energy too!
Think of the times you do that. You're in a great mood, like your heart is about to explode. You feel so inspired, have all of the energy and just want to spread the good vibes to every single person you see for the rest of the day. And it does, right? People pick up on that energy. That's what people mean when they're talking about VIBES. Literal energetic vibrations.
Back to energy vampires. I love that phrase cos it's so bang on. Like vampires suck your blood... energy vampires suck out your energy.
You know the phrase 'healthy relationships'? Well, THESE ARE NOT THEM ❌
When you spend time with people, you should feel...
💡 Lit up
❤️ With a happy heart.
Don't you agree? Ain't nobody got time for low-vibe hangouts. And i'm not talking about if your bff is having a bad day and wants a little moan, because we all have those days.
I'm talking about the people who are ALWAYS like this. They live in that bubble of low vibes, moaning about everything, grumbling about something that happened today, slagging people off and go around popping everyone else's happy bubbles.
The people you let into your life should contribute to your good energy, not infuse you with their sucky, negative energy. ☠️
Relationships are SO crucial for good health.
You may initially associate health with diet and exercise. But it's sooooo much more than that. And amongst the gazillion other things is relationships.
Romantic relationships, friendships, family or colleagues. All relationships.
You know when you have a fight or an argument with someone, you feel so shitty after, you can feel physically sick, get a lump in your throat or give yourself a headache. 😢
What other feelings have you felt before? Any other physical symptoms you can think of off the top of your head? I'm sure if you sat down and thought about it you could think of at least 10.
These are just some of the ways relationships effect health, but imagine the long term effects of poor relationships. NO THANKS!
Take some time today to assess who you're giving your energy to. Are they deserving of it and appreciate it? You give so much to others in terms of energy, but what are you actually getting back?
Is there someone, (or multiple people) who you maybe need to cut ties with, or at least put some boundaries in place with them?
Setting boundaries can be tough. Especially if it's someone close to you or a loved one who is the toxic person.
But I can't explain to you how crucial it is to do this for the sake of your health. I'm not saying you need to cut ties completely, but put boundaries in place to protect yourself.
When thinking of exactly HOW to set boundaries, think of...
What you value (people, certain feelings, actions?)
What you need in your life to make you feel good?
How you will get this? (What do you need to do?)
Put these together and voila! You have a roadmap to setting your boundaries to protect your energy.
Here are some tips for the actual boundary setting itself and those heavy conversations...
✅ Be super clear with your intentions and what you want
✅ Be firm and stand your ground. If you notice yourself backing down, take a breathe and stand tall!
✅ Don't be too nice or people will walk all over you and take advantage of your good heart
✅ Remember that you aren't responsible for solving their problems
✅ Practice saying NO - and realise it's okay to say no!
As I mentioned, it can be tough setting boundaries initially, but remember to do what is right for you. Realise that your health and wellness is priority.
If that means spending less time or cutting ties with certain people, then so be it. YOU are number one. You've got this.
