Why do some people give energy and others drain us? 

As many prepare for the holidays, here are 3 strategies for surviving energy vampires:

1.   Meditate — Daily Metta (Loving-Kindness) and Mindfulness Meditation are particularly useful [see: mediation section]. Meditation is both a daily discipline with a set practice time as well as a way of moving through your day.

2.   Move Slowly — Learn to eat, talk, walk and move slowly.  Move with the pace of gentle Nature.  Become a messenger of silence, stillness and simplicity.

3.   Move On — When possible, simply move out of the orbit (at least 9 to 12 feet) from energy vampires.

Chapter 46 – Tao Te Ching


Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.

John 14:27
