You were out on a date or out with a friend. By all accounts, it seemed as though you had a good night. You felt a bit tired, but you figured it must be due to the demands placed on you at work. The following day, you open your eyes and immediately sense something is wrong. You feel as though someone hit you in the head with a baseball bat. You try to get out of bed but can’t. Your head feels heavy, not quite a headache; it’s a feeling that drops you back onto your pillow for some much-needed rest. This is an energy hangover and is not fun.
How do we get such a thing? Simple. Energy Vampires. They are everywhere. We work for them, date them, hang out with them, and yes, in some cases, we are born to them.
Simply put, they are human beings who feed off the life-force energy of their unsuspecting victims. Vampires are not just mere soul suckers; they also unload their toxic energy. Spending time with them will eventually make you tired, confused, sick, and emotionally drained. Even if you’ve only spent a short time with them, healing might take a while. Not only have they drained you of your precious life force, but they have dumped an enormous amount of toxic energy that will need to be cleansed for you to heal.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?
Don’t go running to a healer, as many of them are also vampires, and so this will send you into an endless cycle of energy loss. Never underestimate your power to heal and care for yourself. Below are some things I’ve used with great success. I use these regularly to keep myself free from toxic cording and drainage.
WATER WITH LEMON: The single best drink for a detox of the energetic system is water with lemon. It also helps with depression and anxiety, which is a plus in this fast-paced, high-energy, technology-run world we now live in.
NO CAFFEINE OR COFFEE: Any coffee, even decaf, is highly stimulating, and it will cause you to crash harder than on a regular day. This can send you right back into bed for longer than necessary. Caffeine should be avoided until you are feeling better.
NO SUGAR: Few things can disrupt your body, like sugar. I’m not talking about fructose as fruit can be a great way to get your energy flowing again. No, I’m talking about sugary sweets, candy, and chocolate. Do not consume these while nursing an energy hangover. Sugar has no vibrational energy; it’s dense and will send you back to bed, making it harder for your body to heal.
LIGHT FOOD: Avoid eating fried or greasy foods, which lower your energy. I will never tell you not to eat meat as that is a personal choice, and in some cases, some people cannot sustain a vegan or vegetarian diet. So, if you are a meat eater, opt for chicken or fish and some lightly grilled veggies. If you are a vegetarian, veggies or other plant proteins can energize your body and get you rapidly vibrating again.
NO SMOKING: I don’t care if you’ve smoked for thirty years, it lowers your energy field, and it should be avoided while healing an energy hangover.
NO ALCOHOL: There is no hair of the dog here, so stay away from anything alcohol based. I know this should be common sense, but there isn’t anything common about sense. Alcohol lowers your energy fields and contributes to terrible feelings, so stay away!
EPSOM SALT BATH: Epsom salts remove negative energy and toxins from the body, and restore calm. Soaking in a tub with a cup of Epsom salts will remove any cords and cleanse your aura. I recommend 20 minutes if you can tolerate it.
COLD SHOWER: Resetting the pituitary gland is essential for restoring your energy. If you can tolerate 68-degree water, rinse your body, allowing the cool water to run over your neck and down your back. This stimulate the blood and gives you a much need boost in energy.
DEEP BREATHING: Inhale deeply for a count of five and exhaling softly for a count of six. Repeat this while sitting calmly on your bed or in a comfortable chair.
RESTORATIVE YOGA: Not to be confused with trying to do every challenging pose created in Yoga. These poses are designed to calm and reset your entire body. If you are unfamiliar with these poses, you can check them out here.
REST: This is the most important part. It would be best if you rested, as it is the only way to truly recuperate from your energy loss.
Lavender Oil: A few drops on the back of your neck and right under your nostrils can do wonders for relaxing into a restorative sleep. If you can’t tolerate or are sensitive to oils, grab a lavender mask at any drug store.
Sage: Burn that good ole sage to clear any unwanted negativity chords. This will clear away the dark energies and restore you to a clean aura. New to Sage? No worries, read my blog post-Sage: Why you can’t live without it.
It is essential to take care of your energy fields. They protect us from harm and keep us from getting ill. The mind/body/spirit connection is far more powerful than we can comprehend. Our health depends on ensuring we are free of energetic toxins.
The next time you are out and start feeling unusually tired, tune into your body and see what you feel. Our bodies are excellent at giving us messages. When you doubt whether or not you are in the company of energy-draining humans, trust your gut. It will never lead you wrong.
