Energy workers, Vampires (!?) and all that stuff.

An online conversation regarding the difference between a Reiki practitioner and those living with the “vampyric condition”. The questions were from a young woman in the midwest USA.

“I am doing an paper on how being vampiric is different from Reiki and I need some help, I am finding that the way Reiki is used is very similar but yet different. Can you all be so kind to help me out?”

*If you have some specific question(s), I’d be glad to be of help.
Fire away….

“First question is what is the difference between the ways we (the psi-vamp) use energy and a reiki practitioner?”

The vast majority of the vampyric encounters I took part in *see below* were of the cleansing kind, as in my counterpart would be in a situation of needing to remove or release some pent up energy or energies, and I would facilitate the removal of said energy.

As for others in the community, it’s my understanding that there are some who draw energy for the sole purpose of self-sustenance, and some for the purpose of (you asked, I’ll say it) malicious intent, such as causing discomfort either close up or from a distance, and always it would seem for selfish reasons.

A Reiki practitioner (if working according to Reiki precepts and concepts) doesn’t work for their own benefit. They work for the benefit of the client or recipient.  Also, the Reiki practitioner acts as nothing more than a channel or metaphysical siphon of sorts for the Universal Life Force.

I found in the past (pre-Reiki attunements) that when doing energy work, I would end up being exhausted and drained, mostly because although the energy I was exchanging was clean and wonderful and marvelous and all that, it was tapping me of other physical resources. It was my energy that was being sent here there and everywhere, leaving me sometimes a bit senseless and more than a bit dazed.

Being tuned in to Reiki allows me to open up to energies all around me on levels that, as much as I was aware of them previously, I guess I didn’t have the access I do since being attuned.

“Last question, on many reiki sites I see how to defend yourself against a psychic vampire why is that?? “

Are you sure you want me to open up that particular can of worms?

Okay… I will.

If you look at all of the “information” on vampires, they are described as being creatures/lifeforms/beings that inherently take what they need, with no apparent regard for the, shall I say “victim” or “donor”. (Keep in mind, this is not my opinion or attitude, just what I’ve gleaned over way too many years).
That being said, it is a seemingly common school of thought that interaction with a vampire is a generally negative, shall I say, soul-sucking interaction. Now, logically thinking, that’s not something that most people want to have happen to them, so, information on how to protect oneself from an energy/chi/ki/spirit sucker is going to be out there for all and any to see.

So, why are people cautious? Because they don’t have the knowledge to understand the “vampyric” condition, because they haven’t experienced that side of the coin.

Experience tends to bring knowledge, unfortunately, it’s not always possible to experience all the wonderful weirdness out there….

Energy worker? Vampyre? No, a Heyoka

Energy worker? Vampyre? No, Heyoka.

Oh yes, the see below part.

Prior to becoming a certified and registered Reiki teacher, like many out there,  I wandered through a collection of philosophies and, shall we say, lifestyles. One of them being the “vampire” community, a group of people who I learned very quickly WEREN’T living the Hollywood/fictional/role-playing version of “vampire”. People who were quite practiced in energy manipulation, both up close and from a distance, hence the term “psi-vamp”.  This is why the term was used in the interview.
