Initial disclaimer: This work is far from complete; however, it is
the result of long study and observation on the nature of some of the
most interesting people in my experience. I would like to say that I have
only the most objective of interests in this phenomenon, but I find it
impossible to be objective about what I am. The following information
is not intended to glorify or impress psychic vampires, nor is it intended
to teach others to become psychic vampires. I am certain that many individuals
will read this and feel slighted due to the fact that I have not included
their popular opinions or false claims in my descriptions. Thus, I must
reiterate that this is not meant to glorify the condition of psychic vampirism.
This work is strictly based on the information and conclusions I have
gathered from psychic vampires, who were approached in a neutral and open
environment. This work also contains ONLY information about individuals
who can prove their nature, either consciously or unconsciously, through
observable energy transactions. I have made every effort to stay away
from popularizing or publicizing psychic vampires, and have withheld names
and dates as a courtesy towards an overwhelming majority of individuals
discussed herein who desire to remain anonymous. Further, the writer of
this document, a psychic vampire himself, also wishes to remain anonymous.
Psychic vampires. What are they? Who are they? What do we know about
the condition of psychic vampirism, or the methods involved in the execution
of such an action? From what I have gathered, the general populace knows
little to nothing about this condition, though it is recognized and even
applauded by certain groups, generally gothic theme web sites and "vampire
support groups." Several researchers and even military institutions
have done studies on the aura and the various methods of manipulating
biotic fields, and have concluded that psychic vampirism is not only possible,
it is an event common in occurrence. But what does all this mean?
From what I have been able to deduce from my own situation and experiences,
psychic vampirism is a condition in which a person has become capable
of and/or dependant upon feeding or absorbing through an osmotic reaction
the perceivable energy in their environment. In some ways, this is similar
to exothermic animals requiring heat from their surroundings; however,
the psychic vampire, or PV, generally requires a more specialized energy
type, especially biotic energies. Whether this is a physical or psychosomatic
differentiation is unknown to me at this point. In my direct experience,
feeding on large quantities of abiotic energy, such as heat or light can
sate a PV's desire for this influx of external energy for a short while.
However, due to the general associative processes of the PV, as well as
certain sensitivities the PV develops, it is often concluded that the
aura, or perceivable biotic energy inherent in humans (and, perhaps, in
other sentient, empathic creatures which may yet be encountered), provides
more 'nutritious' energy. Because of the almost-universally empathic nature
of the many psychic vampires I have observed, this may be so. I daresay
that the input/yield ratio of attempting to feed on biotic energy is much
greater than abiotic sources, though again, this may be caused more by
empathy and synchronicity than simple energy exchange ratios. Another
thing worth note is the general aversion towards direct sunlight that
the PV exhibits. This, and other interesting tendencies developed (to
be discussed later) tend to direct the PV away from abiotic energy sources
and towards the more convenient biotic ones.
At this point, combining the data already at hand can produce a few tentative
conclusions. Whether by evolution or other means of selective trends,
the niche of a being that feeds on the emotional resonance or biotic energy
fields of Homo Sapiens is likely to be filled at this point. We know that
the average human, especially in the wake of commercial entertainment,
exerts a tremendous amount of energy on emotion. Based on my observations,
I must conclude that this is why PVs tend to frequently attend dramatic
movies or other productions, despite an almost universal (among the PVs,
at least) ambivalence towards the films themselves. With all this energy
expended on frivolous, low- to non-impact events, evolutionarily speaking
it would be incredible if nature had not developed a way to feed on the
aura of sentient beings.
It is proven that on a cellular level, all living systems are capable
of transferring, storing, and utilizing energy, generally measured in
calorific value. It is interesting to conjecture the calorific value of
various forms of auric energy, though there is as yet no reliable way
to measure it. Measurements of metabolic reactions producing heat are
the most detailed studies of biotic energy transference that I am aware
of, and so I will use this as an example here. This kind of energy manipulation
of a living system is actually very efficient compared to most abiotic
energy transference methods I have researched. If psychic energies, such
as auric or 'astral' bodies, emit anywhere near the yield of a simple
metabolic reaction in a biotic system, then it is easy to see why and
how psychic vampirism might evolve as a mode of energy intake. What remains
to be discussed and concluded is how this is done in the first place.
Psychic vampirism is, by definition, the method of sating some actual
or perceived need for a non-definitive mental, emotional, or 'spiritual'
energy, as leeched from a 'victim' or 'donor' to a parasitic being by
means of psi energy. This is a pretty broad, catchall definition, obviously
deduced by people who do not yet understand what it is they claim to do.
First, to come to an agreement on psi, the apparent basis of this phenomenon.
Psi is any means by which a person or persons influences their environments,
including other people, without direct interaction. Psi is generally divided
into two categories: Extra-Sensory Perception, commonly known as E.S.P.;
and Psychokinesis, or mind over matter. It is believed that psychic vampirism
falls under the category of psychokinesis, or the manipulation of matter
or energy using forces other than those caused by direct physical interaction.
However, biomagnetism and bioelectric field manipulation are common occurrences,
found in many people who are simply capable of 'thinking' their biotic
fields different in some manner, thus causing a flux in these very important
auric bodies. In fact, nearly half of all people I have interviewed and
experimented with on this subject, who have subsequently attempted manipulation
of measurable biotic fields in this way, are capable of altering their
biomagnetic readings on the first try. Even more people have been able
to suppress or strengthen their bioelectric fields for short periods after
no more than half a dozen attempts. These tests are simple and are conducted
with a simple set of tools: namely, a compass and a camera for measurement,
and a chair and a table in an otherwise plain, neutral-colored room. Both
effects were measured without the person tested touching either camera
or compass at any point. Oddly enough, this phenomenon is generally not
considered to be related to psi in any way. So how is it that psychic
vampirism, which also seems to stem from these simple manipulations, is
considered a form of psychokinesis?
To deduce this, it must be stated that transferring energy requires tremendous
amounts of pre-existing energy. Even metabolic reaction common in warm-blooded
animals is a mechanical process, requiring energy to perform the work
necessary to produce more energy. Food intake is converted to calorific
energy, which is used to fuel the metabolic process to produce heat. This
is the most common model for energy transference-energy applied to a system
is used to fuel the process by which a system produces another form of
energy. And yet, the PV seems to require little to no measurable energy
to fuel the process of psychic vampirism. So the focus of the questions
is, in a realistic sense, What is the energy siphoned from the psychic
vampire's environment used for? Towards what mechanical transference is
the absorbed energy applied? And is this method of energy consumption
efficient enough to fuel the process for which it is required?
The answer to the first question is already a point under debate in some
of the esoteric circles which deal with this phenomenon. Most people who
study psychic vampirism agree that, much like the traditional vampires
requiring blood to fuel their dead bodies, the PV requires this specialized
energy to "recharge" their own auric fields, which are lacking
in some aspect. However, I have found that this is inconsistent with the
observations I have made on PVs. On average, a PV tends to have a noticeably
stronger aura than other people, and is often predisposed, either genetically
or through social pressures, towards fitness and a strong constitution.
However, I have also observed that most PV's are drawn to social interaction,
whether they involve themselves in such interactions or not. When a PV
is isolated, whether by choice or by force, they tend to withdraw into
themselves, and often unconsciously feed on their own auric fields. This
insatiable appetite leads to a cycle of degradation of the aura, which
can lead to various mental imbalances and physical illness. Though I do
not condone testing this by quarantining a PV, the observations I have
already made lead me to believe the answer to the third question, above,
as pertaining to the efficiency of the system of input/yield, is that
the system is not efficient enough to sufficiently sustain a PV. Whatever
"psychic nutrients" are gathered in this way are not enough
to sustain a PV indefinitely, which leads me to believe that psychic vampire
is actually attempting to correct a specific deficiency through specialized
feeding. This is a very old theory about vampirism in general, but investigated
in this light produces startling questions I have never come across in
my research. However, it also remains to be said that it is entirely possible
that the deficiency is created by the act of vampirism to begin with.
Like drug use, a body oversupplied with a naturally occurring chemical
lowers its own production of that chemical, relying on the external supply.
When the external supply of chemicals is stopped, the body, accustomed
to relying on that source, becomes unbalanced as the lag between the external
supply and internal production leaves the body without the necessary levels
of the chemical in question. In the case of PVs, this could mean that,
having found a way to bolster their own auras with external energy sources,
their bodies' natural ability to produce and regenerate biotic energies
would be compromised, leaving them increasingly dependent on the act of
The answer to the second question is self-evident only if you apply the
above theory that the auric energies absorbed are directly used to "recharge"
the aura of the PV. Though this process is not currently accepted as a
standard energy application, I hold the opinion that it is a matter of
bioelectric field manipulation, due to the observations I have made. If
this theory is correct, then psychic vampirism is simply the absorption
of biotic field energies which are then redirected, and not metabolized
or digested. And if this is, in fact, the case, then psychic vampirism
may be a simple addiction like any other, curable through therapy and
possibly medications and treatments promoting the regeneration of the
biotic energies, leaving no need to feed off of healthy systems in such
a parasitic manner.
I'M OK, YOU'RE OK
Psychic Vampires have several interesting tendencies, which should be
discussed to further understand the act of psychic vampirism. First, most
PVs whom have spoken with or observed tend to shun bright lights, especially
sunlight, and other high-frequency stimuli, such as loud noises or intense
vibrations. Although there are several whom I have interviewed who enjoy
parties, clubs, and other social events or locations which feature some
high-frequency or high-intensity stimulus, I have found on most occasions
that PVs tend to try and ignore these stimuli in favor of the energies
they are there to absorb. There are exceptions, of course, and these lead
me to believe that the general responses to such stimuli are learned responses
or, more likely, psychosomatic ones. As a rule, the same PVs that enjoy
the abiotic energies found in such situations are also the few exceptions
to the general thought that psychic vampirism is an "evil" act.
These rare individuals claim that it is a natural, almost universal act,
and of the three that I interviewed, two of them vehemently deny that
their actions could possibly cause any ill side effects in the "victims"
of their vampirism. Although it is fairly obvious to anyone who observes
the target of repeated PV feedings that said target will quickly become
lethargic, unfocused, lose motivation and even can become seriously ill,
it is also interesting to note that of the three socially outgoing, high-frequency
stimuli enjoying PVs I spoke with, none of them admitted to feeding outside
of a group scenario. This may explain why two of the three denied that
their feedings may have negative side effects-they may never have fed
from one individual's energies long enough or intensely enough to do that
individual recognizable harm.
The question of whether psychic vampirism is "good" or "evil"
may be a valid point. Obviously, according to most Judaic or Christian
religious beliefs, any form of parasitic action is inherently evil. Since
most of the psychic vampires I have spoken with were raised in an American
Christian society, it is a good bet that they have been exposed only to
the belief that what they do is an "evil" act, and thus have
a predisposition to viewing themselves as bad people.
From my observations, most PVs under the age of thirty tend to revel
in it, often seeing it as an act of independence or rebellion against
authority, identifying them as special or unique in some manner. It is
largely these PVs who admit to meeting with others who claim to be vampires
of all types, seeking support, friendship, and a social network of like-minded
individuals. Specialized clubs frequented by young men and women of the
"Goth" theme tend to be considered safe havens for PVs in this
age bracket. However, it has been my experience that actual PVs find themselves
either alienated by those who pretend to be vampires of some sort, or
in confrontation with other PVs, some of whom can be fiercely territorial.
Many PVs enjoy the attention they get from aura-sensitive individuals,
and will grow angry and even aggressively attempt to drive off other PVs
who steal their spotlight-because with that spotlight goes that image
of uniqueness that most young people crave. In addition to this odd territorial
behavior I have observed, PVs, generally, themselves very sensitive to
auric energies, may notice another PV feeding and feel competitive towards
their fellow PV. This competitive feeling almost inevitably leads to "feeding
contests", where PVs feed either from the crowd or from each other
in an effort to "out-eat" the other; this is, in effect, a simple
matter of attempting to determine dominance, and I have observed this
almost exclusively in male PVs (though I have witnessed more than one
female PV in the same situation). I have also observed that female PVs
are more likely to be provocative, feeding off of sexual energies in the
aura with or without actually engaging in sexual conduct, and yet it is
the male PVs who are most likely to claim to feed largely on sexual energy.
A popular trend is for males to claim to be "incubi", or male
sexual demons, though the truth of these claims is up for debate. Unfortunately,
most claims made by young PVs are very hard, or impossible, to verify.
Others, those between around thirty and fifty, habitually hide their
acts, and become easily depressed when they are confronted with them.
Having been raised to believe that such things are wicked and unnatural
(and remember, most were raised in an entirely different societal structure),
they are often ashamed or unnerved by their actions, seeing themselves
as "damned" or "touched by evil." A Catholic priest
PV, unconscious of his condition, whom I spoke with at length claimed
that the idea of vampirism was a "taint of the Devil's presence."
He stated that he joined the church because mass, hymns, and other activities
"filled me with peace and strength." When I presented the possibility
that he was drawn to the emotional responses of the worshippers as a source
of energy, he became very upset and concluded the interview prematurely
by verbally, and finally physically assaulting me. This response is one
of the more drastic I have encountered, but his attitude is actually typical
of that age group, as far as observed. Otherwise, this age group tends
to be far more conservative than younger PVs, and has a greater tendency
to be charismatic and polished in their mannerisms. This seems to be a
method of camouflaging themselves in a society which does not readily
accept what they are, nor even acknowledge the existence of PVs as a rule.
Finally, there are the those who have ceased to differentiate themselves
from others based on their acts of psychic vampirism; this appears to
be the tendency in older individuals, those over fifty. I spoke with only
a handful of people who fit this category, though they all had almost
uniform thoughts and ideas on the issue. An older, retired couple, friends
of mine, agreed to an interview on the basis that I never raise the question
of the morality of their feeding. From our conversations, and two others
with similar people, I deduced that at a certain point the PV decides
that moral values are a moot point when the nature of their feeding is
called into question. One individual, a man who had admittedly been a
PV since childhood, made a statement to the effect of, "We are what
we are." This was the theme of all interviews I did on PVs over the
age of fifty, and the expressed desired mindset of the majority of PVs
over thirty. Conversely, I find that the older a PV gets, the more they
become tight-lipped about their actions. It took several hours convincing
to get even my friends, whom I have known for some years and have been
aware that they are psychic vampires for more than a year, to speak to
me on the subject. During the interview, they explained that they are
hesitant because of the possibility of ridicule and alienation, which
can be devastating for a PV, and the general reactions of neighbors and
friends, who tend to be conservative and thus highly suspicious of that
which they are not familiar with. Were general public reaction to be negative,
I dread to think what would become of my friends, who are far too old
to be dealing with harassment, vandalism, or even assault over something
To correctly identify PVs, it is imperative that one is aware of any
individual PV's origins and state of mind. However, many exhibit common
factors, and can be initially identified by these common traits. It is
very important to proceed with caution when attempting to identify a psychic
vampire who does not wish others to be aware of his or her nature, as
psychic vampires can be just as aggressive and vicious as anyone else.
It is often best to avoid confrontation, especially if they perceive you
as accusatory. Respect for privacy and personal choice is golden when
dealing with people, and PVs are no exception.
To begin with, most psychic vampires are very empathic beings, and tend
to be aware of their own energies as well as the energies of others in
great detail. Even those deny their nature, or are unaware of it, are
still sensitive to other people and their emotional states. From what
I have gathered, this is a natural sensory mechanism to aid in feeding-the
PV needs must be aware of where to feed as much as the need to do so.
It may be that the reverse is also true, or that being empathic tends
to lead to psychic vampirism, but this is mere conjecture. Suffice it
to say that PVs are, as a rule, very empathic people.
Another general trait seems to be an aversion to sunlight, and a nocturnal
aspect of the PVs biological cycles. Due to the nature of younger PVs,
I cannot say whether this is a social coping mechanism, a feeding mechanism,
or simple psychosomatic antipathy, but it seems to be a combination of
several factors. First, a PV tends to be secretive of their nature when
dealing with most people, and secretive-natured people often feel the
need to be awake and active at night, when most people are vulnerable.
Second, many PVs, as mentioned before, tend to attend social functions,
popular public entertainment, or frequent clubs, bars, and parties, most
of which take place at night. So this could be a manner of energy availability.
Also, it is unwise to overlook the rebellious nature of youth, when nocturnal
ramblings are "cool" and friends and associates also tend to
make a habit of staying active during the night as much as possible. Further,
over a period of time, night-shift work or school often leaves an individual
acclimated to late hours, and sunlight becomes an internal cue for them
to sleep. This is the reverse of diurnally active people, who tend to
feel tired only when it is dark, and are often unable to sleep in a brightly-lit
room. And finally, it may be that feeding on auric energies actually does
cause some side effects, including discomfort or mild allergic reaction
in direct sunlight. Whatever the case, PVs are often averse to sunlight,
and others claim to be even if they are not. Some actually suffer mild
redness and tenderness in the epidermis when in sunlight, or feel a "cooking"
sensation, often accompanied by itching and discoloration of the skin.
This, I strongly believe, is a psychosomatic reaction, perhaps caused
by associative habit with "evil" and "creatures of darkness."
With younger PVs, this aversion to sunlight, and any physical reactions
associated with it, is considered a mark of distinction in certain social
circles, and may actually be induced by simply because of the individual's
desire to be so marked.
Loud noises and vibrations also tend to be anathema to the PV, who feels
these more readily than other individuals. In my interviews, I have asked
many PVs (and a few who are not PVs, but wish to be) why this is so, and
the universal response was that they are more sensitive to energies and
their fluctuations, on the whole, than other people. Although I have not
found any way to prove this, it is true that PVs have a slightly greater
tendency to immediately react to loud noises and physical vibrations in
a negative manner-extensive exposure also has greater negative associative
effects, such as residual deafness after loud music, or "shiver"
reactions to shrill vibrations (such as nails on a blackboard). However,
this is not a good method to use if you suspect someone (or you yourself)
may be a PV, as all people of all kinds have different thresholds of sensitivity
to loud noises or vibrations.
Fear of isolation is another calling card of the PV, especially those
who require large amounts of energy. Claustrophobia, fear of confinement,
and uneasiness when alone are all common ground for the PV, especially
those who are aware of their needs and have been confined before until
they suffered some negative effects. It is possible that even mentioning
isolation will cause a panic or anxiety attack in a PV who has suffered
such before. This is a slightly more reliable way to find out if an individual
is a PV, though it is a cruel act and may have severe repercussions for
the PV. However, I have heard of it being done in some cases to "punish"
PV teenagers by religiously zealous parents. Should you attempt to broach
this subject, be prepared for an immediate hostile response. This is the
quickest way to alienate most PVs. Also be aware that fear of enclosed
spaces is a common phobia, and by itself does not indicate psychic vampirism.
NOTE: You should NEVER attempt to "lock someone up" for any
reason; this is grounds for criminal prosecution including criminal neglect
(in the case of children), harassment, abuse, illegal confinement, even
kidnapping. If you wish to use this as a means of criteria for determining
if someone you know is a psychic vampire, broach the subject in a relaxed
setting, in a tactful manner, and simply pay attention to their reaction.
If you wish use this to determine whether you yourself are a PV, think
about being confined for a moment, then check your pulse.
Constant social grouping is another sign of PVs, who often feel the need
to surround themselves with people in an effort to keep a ready source
of energy, or to keep from feeding exclusively on one person, thereby
doing harm to that single source of energy. Whether the PV is the center
of attraction or the quiet wallflower seems to be an entirely personal
choice. By and large, those who tend towards the more pagan social circles
find it attractive to be the center of attention, whereas the more conservative
Christian-raised PVs are more likely to feel ostracized and therefore
be wallflowers. Regardless, the major identifying aspect of the PV is
the need to feed from other sentient beings, and with experience the PV
finds that social gatherings are the best way to feed discreetly.
Of course, the most obvious, though apparently the least reliable, method
of determining a psychic vampire is by direct questioning. In most cases,
an individual will need you to explain in detail what you are indicating,
as psychic vampirism is commonly understood and accepted only in a very
specialized social niche. Many young people, especially rebellious teenagers
interested in the macabre, will immediately identify with many aspects
of the PV, despite very rarely being true PVs (though in one case, my
questioning led a curious young woman to pursue the concept and eventually
become a ravenous PV through practice and malicious intent). On the other
hand, many older PVs are secretive by nature, and feel threatened when
confronted about their possible condition. Only in the most rare and unusual
circumstances will the individual you suspect as being a PV be truly honest,
open, and accepting of the idea if they were not aware beforehand. Extreme
caution and prudence is advised.
FACTS and FALLACIES
Finally, to debunk some of the myths and misconceptions of psychic vampirism.
Though many PVs use these misconceptions, and may actively support them
to misdirect attention from themselves, I feel it is imperative to inform
PVs that these are many of the false notions that surround them. Anyone
who is taught to feel and think in a manner that misleads them and forces
them to make decisions based on false beliefs is in a dangerous situation,
and may come to harm either through their own actions or the actions of
other, equally misguided individuals. I find that this is a growing situation,
especially amongst the youngest PVs, who find themselves cast as angels
or demons by the beliefs of others uninformed of the nature of PVs. All
PVs have the chance to be normal, healthy, productive individuals, and
this is their right. Denying anyone this is an act of discrimination,
regardless of intention.
One of the most popular misconceptions is that PVs are akin to actual
vampires of legend, popularized around the turn of the last century by
the Irish novelist Bram Stoker. I have found no evidence supporting this.
Though the symbology of the act of draining the life energy of a victim
or donor is self-evident in both PVs and blood-drinking individuals, the
actual transfer of biotic energies through each of these methods is so
dissimilar as to be impossible to relate in any meaningful manner. Though
it is a common belief that psychic vampires and blood-drinking, or sanguineous,
vampires are two sides of the same coin, their methods, their approach,
their manner, and even their motivations are often completely unrelated.
In fact, on the whole I have found that individuals claiming to be sanguineous
vampires are quite often mistaken about the nature of psychic vampirism.
For blood-consuming vampires, individuals with a physical or mental need
to regularly consume sizable quantities of blood, it is common that the
same side-effects of both feeding and being fed upon are observed as in
PVs. This, I have found, is the most common basis of the belief that the
two methods of vampirism are related. However, it should be noted that
the same basic benefits are conferred upon any living system that receives
a necessary nutrition. After feeding, both psychic and sanguineous vampires
show the same responses as any hungry animal immediately after being given
appropriate food. And victims, or donors, if fed upon extensively enough,
show the same basic responses as any healthy system when preyed upon by
a form of parasite. These responses are not limited to vampirism in any
way-these are natural responses to energy transfer in an interconnected
biotic network. Using this as a way to relate psychic vampirism and other
forms of vampirism is akin to claiming that a sanguineous vampire is obviously
related to a mosquito, or a tapeworm. Though many PVs also believe that
these two forms of vampirism are related, again, I can find no firm grounds
on which to support this claim.
Many individuals, especially those in their teens to early twenties,
claim to be vampires of some sort or another in a misguided effort to
appear unique, be admired by friends, or to instill fear in some personal
enemy. The vast majority of individuals I have spoken with are mistaken
or intentionally misleading about their identities as vampires or PVs.
Falsely claiming to be a vampire, psychic or otherwise, is quite often
a dangerous and foolish act, which opens an individual up to a great deal
of social ostracizing, harassment, public scrutiny, vandalism of personal
property, threats up to and including death, and even retaliation by those
you may be emulating. In other words, all the stress that actual PVs put
up with should they make known their nature, plus a grudge by those real
PVs who wish to keep their nature secret. I must advise anyone who falsely
claims to be a vampire of any sort to reconsider his or her personal agendas.
It is not wise to lay down in snake pit and pretend to be a snake.
PVs, like most people, are not "evil" by nature. There are
malicious, dangerous PVs, yes, but there are just as many that are kind,
loving people who are careful about their feeding. It is foolish, pseudo-religious
nonsense to claim that any group of people, any class, creed or religion,
is "evil" by their very nature. This is false, this is libelous,
and this is harmful to everyone involved in such accusations.
As far as I am aware, PVs do not have any special powers, nor do they
gain any through the act of feeding. Empathic responses may heighten or
depress certain aspects of a PV's biological functions or mental state
(such as increased tension or heart rate from feeding on a chronically
anxious victim, or becoming melancholy and suffering loss of motivation
after feeding on a suicidal depressive). This is, according to overwhelming
evidence, a purely sympathetic response. There is no indication, however,
that PVs gain any special knowledge of the victim after feeding, or become
somehow more "powerful." Again, these claims are generally made
by individuals unfamiliar with psychic vampirism, and should be carefully
considered and evaluated before either being accepted or denied. It may
be that should a PV feed on an individual with telekinetic abilities,
some reaction may occur leading to the development of telekinesis in the
PV. As of now, however, I have found no evidence to support these or similar
claims and must therefore conclude that they are probably false.
PVs are also not subject to any of the mythological methods of controlling
or subjugating vampires of legend. Crosses, garlic, running water, even
wooden stakes are no more or less effective as a method of deterring a
PV than any other human. Obviously, were some misguided individual to
hammer a shaft of ash wood through the heart of a PV, that PV would die
just as readily as anyone else would. Some PVs are in fact allergic to
garlic, just as some PVs are allergic to bee stings. I have interviewed
one PV during the course of this study who was obsessed with the vampire
legends and myths, and this individual does sleep in a coffin, but is
a cleanliness obsessive-compulsive and thus unable to complete his fantasy
fulfillment by filling his bed with graveyard dirt, much to the relief
of his disconcerted parents.
Aura-enhancing exercises, attempts to break the feeding of psychic vampires,
and methods to bolster and empower the aura against such feedings, have
no observable effect on true psychic vampirism. Though certain institutes
who have studied psychic vampirism make these claims, it is generally
understood that these are practices meant to help the victim of such attacks
regenerate whatever auric energies they have lost to psychic vampirism.
These practices do NOT stop or hinder the true PV during feeding. In fact,
they generally promote ease and expediency of feeding, and when used during
a PV attack, often cause more intense long-term effects in return for
the short-term energy boost they provide. It is my understanding that
the aura-enhancing exercises do not suddenly provide more energy from
nowhere-the additional drain on the system to provide extra energy to
the natural fields surrounding an individual creates additional stresses
on the systems which manufacture these auras. And if these stresses are
stacked with the stresses applied when victimized by a PV, it further
weakens the fundamental structure of the aura and other related biotic
energies. Though many people believe otherwise, I have come to this conclusion
from direct observation and testing of these methods. These aura-enhancing
exercises are best reserved for when the PV has finished feeding on an
individual, to promote regeneration and new growth of the aura, and protection
techniques are best applied beforehand. Protective practices merely act
to bolster the existing aura with an additional buffer of energy, and
unless a PV is feeding intensively on a single individual, these techniques
should be enough to prevent serious damage to the aura. To visualize this
concept, consider the armored vests issued to special military and police
forces. This armor is meant to provide resistance to impact, such as from
bullets fired at the wearer, in order to reduce the trauma incurred by
such impact. They cannot prevent the gunshot from occurring, and are not
Oppressive organizations or individuals are not psychic vampires. A psychic
vampire feeds on energies stolen from the biotic fields. Many individuals
I have spoken with on this subject believe that damaging, exploitative,
or oppressive individuals, organizations, governments, or international
communities are forms of psychic vampirism. I cannot verify these beliefs,
due to the fact that these entities do not "feed" on the biotic
energies. Oppressing a source of energy and feeding on it are two very
different things. One does not call a horse a carnivore because it tramples
the snake, nor does one call a tiger a herbivore because it sharpens its
claws on the tree. Even when an entity relies on the emotional response
of a group or individual to reach a desired effect (such as inciting anger
in a crowd to lead them to joining a coup d'etat against a government),
this is not psychic vampirism. Only when an entity actually feeds on these
energies does it become a PV.
And finally, a PV is any individual who is capable of learning to feed
on biotic auras. I have observed individuals train themselves in this
over time, becoming a PV with practice, and yet I have also seen individuals
who claim to be PVs, have tried every method they were aware of, and even
with coaching and guidance could not become a true PV. I have not been
able to determine whether being a PV is due to a genetic trait (or defect),
some side effect of being fed on by another PV, or some other unforeseen
cause. I have read articles claiming that PVs are made, not born, and
other articles claiming the exact opposite. I have not even been able
to determine a majority opinion of the PVs I have spoken with on the subject.
However, I have been able to determine a common thread amongst most PVs,
which is an instance or history of exploitation of the empathic nature
of the PV, leading to a reflexive vampiric response (often, but not always,
the PV's first indication of their nature). If this is the condition,
why is it that not all empathic people who are exploited or otherwise
oppressed become PVs? I tentatively conclude that it is a mixture of some
of the perceived conditions leading to psychic vampirism: a genetic trait
or defect, which allows the potential to feed on external energy sources
without physical interaction, then exposed to some environmental condition
which causes fluctuations in the auric fields, prompting vampiric response.
Realize that this is simply a best guess, not proven fact, and it may
be some time before the actual cause of psychic vampirism is determined.
