How Negative Energies Prey on the Vulnerable

I had just moved into a new apartment and usually I am pretty diligent about saging a new space but for some reason, around two weeks in I still hadn’t done it.

For those of you who don’t know, saging is an old practice that is supposed to clean away negative energies and protect your space.

My apartment however was brand new and I wasn’t really concerned about it…… of course, until something happened.

I was laying in bed trying to fall asleep when suddenly I heard a really calm voice talking to me. The voice started telling me about my past life.

I was confused as to where this ‘voice’ had come from and was just lying there listening to the fairly negative recount of a supposed past life. The voice then started telling me how I had failed to listen to the signs. 

Not listening to the signs has lately been a fear of mine as I attempt to take this spiritual path. The voice then became negative and I tried to shut it off, blaming my silly inner fears for its presence.

The voice then prompted to tell me that it could confirm it was here by using my boyfriend, then out of no where, my boyfriend grabbed my hand and squeezed it.

I froze, what the hell was in the room here with me? And was it just a coincidence that at that very moment my boyfriend squeezed my hand?

I fell asleep and had weird dreams all night.

Our thoughts create our reality, I have seen that universal law in action too many times to mess with it, and at the end of the day its my decision to believe the ‘voice’ or not, but my question now was, what benefit did this entity get out of doing all this?

It didn’t really feel like a positive thing to me but it didn’t feel super negative either, in fact I just felt quite vulnerable.

When people become vulnerable they give their energy away. Not just to wondering spirits but in real life too.

When we feel vulnerable we lose our power, our self-control and our confidence. People or even spirits who try to make us vulnerable do so to feel in control.

When they are in control, that is when they can take over and manipulate.

This can be used in all areas of life, in relationships, in jobs, with families and even with negative spirits.

I am still not certain what exactly this ‘voice’ was in my room and I am not even really sure if that was it’s intention but I do know this, that to stop vulnerability all you need to do is remember your truth and who you are.

You can only feel vulnerable if you allow yourself to. Remember, your emotions are your responsibility.

Vulnerability is not all bad either, in fact vulnerability can be one of the most revealing things we can allow ourselves to experience.

Mantra for staying in your truth: “I am strong, I am in control, I can handle this, I will work through this.”
