  • Spirits can, and sometimes will feed on your energy and leave you feeling drained, tired and lethargic. Those of you who are open to spirit and have psychic abilities can also draw energy from others with much the same effect. True honest psychics wont intentionally do this.

  • Any scientist will tell you that there is no way one human body can leach energy from another over any distance. Even static electricity can only jump a distance of millimeters between bodies.
    There are no real “psychic vampires”. It is nothing more than a self-induced, self-perpetuating delusion, and is classified as a delusion of grandeur, with overtones of the victim or martyr.

    “Psychic vampires” cannot drain anyone of anything – it is a autonomic response triggered by a biofeedback mechanism. They truly believe that they can do this, and believe it so strongly, that their bodies release a wave of adrenaline and endorphins, resulting in the “feel good high” they claim to feel, and the adrenaline boost is responsible for the physical “augmentation” of strength and speed some report.

    As with any high, they eventually come down, resulting in a period of feeling tired, sluggish, etc. until the next time they “feed” – which is a delusion, but their bodies release the endorphins anyway. Not understanding the actual way their bodies work, these people rationalize that they are therefore “psychic vampires” in order to feed their egos and bolster their sense of confidence and self-worth. They claim this “awakening” happens during puberty, and that they spontaneously develop a “lack of energy”. Funny how that coincides with teen angst, rebellion, searching for self, etc. and all the phases of the developing Id and Ego.

    As for their “donors”, once again the response these people report to a “feeding” is in line with a sympathetic response brought on by their delusion that they have been “fed upon”. A good analogy here is how some husbands report sympathetic labor pains when their wife is about to deliver. It is real to them, but the source is in their own bodies – not because they are empathically “transferring” some of their wife’s pain to themselves.

    I encountered a self-professed “psychic vampire” in the hospital during my clinicals. He had wrecked an ATV, and his leg was broken in multiple places. He claimed he was “taking energy” from everyone around him in order to heal faster, and that when I got home I would probably be “really tired”. I went home after eight hours, went out and did 7 miles on my kayak, and bicycled 6. Slept normally, and woke up well rested. As for him, he attempted soon thereafter to get up and go to the restroom by himself because he was “healed” well enough. The idiot rebroke his femur as soon as he put weight on it. He eventually did make it home, but friends of mine on that floor said it took him longer to heal than normal.

    The human body only generates three quantifiable forms of energy: 1. Neurological (electrical brain and nerve signals) which travels along nervous pathways insulated in deep tissue. If this is the energy “psi” vamps claim to use, then their “victims” would collapse in a manner similiar to a neurological stroke as the electrical pulses were drained. In all likelihood they would die, because these signals also control autonomic responses such as the breathing reflex and your heartbeat. If this is the energy they claim to need, why not just carry around a few D-cell batteries?
    2. Electromagnetic, generated in tandem with your neurological output. Every living thing has an EM field. The idea that you could “drain” or feed from it is ridiculous. All EM fields are in constant flux. So-called “psi” vampires point to Kirlian photography, which is EM sensitive, as proof that draining can occur. All EM fields interact and are in constant change. Regardless of what anyone tells you, Kirlian cannot provide scientific, empirical data. If this is the energy they need, it would be easier to carry around several magnets, as their fields will overlap yours and strengthen it.
    3. Caloric, or heat energy. If this energy is what the vampires need, then a draining would leave you cold and shivering, and probably hypothermic. If this is the energy they need, it would be much simpler to eat a sandwich and put on a sweater.

    If anyone claims that “psy vamps” are real, fine. Here’s a challenge: find a policeman and drain him to the point where he is so tired he can no longer stand or resist, make off with his gun, badge, and nightsick – and do it on video with no stops, edits, pauses, or lookaways.

  • I don’t believe in them, because there’s been absolutely no concrete evidence that points to their existence.

    I mean, sure, it’d be cool if psychic powers existed, that we all had energy auras and whatnot. But these things are impossible to observe and measure. Furthermore, the claims of people that have “witnessed” these things either come across (to me) as being people deluding themselves, or people wanting to feel deep, unique, or in possession of some secret occult knowledge.

    Remember, just because you believe something, or want something, does not make it real.

  • I do believe, because I know two personally. They’re very close friends our ours. I’ve felt the effect they can have on people and it’s not always pleasant, but the two I know try hard to not drain energy from people. I haven’t felt the effects in a long time because I’ve learned how to put up a psychic shield.

  • i do very much. i was once surrounded by them. i mean literally surrounded, there were a number of them. presently they are gone. the last one was especially devious. i had escaped the others and i guess i was feeling smug and ignorantly opened the door wide to the last one. it takes an awfully mighty force of will to deal with the problem. unlike most parasites they readily feed on poisons. as i’ve learned sometimes the hardest part is seeing them for what they are. you need to see your weaknesses and own them, admit there are weaknesses. we don’t usually like to do that.

  • the type that claim they are are very real, but whether or not they actually drain auraus im not so sure, there was a thing on the history channel about vampires and there was actual proof of some sort of energy being drained by one of these psychic vampires. even if that is BS there are certainly people out there that thrive on the constant attention of others
