If you have ever returned home to find your place burglarized or vandalized, then you know that feeling of violation – like actually having been raped – that pervades the scene. You feel dirty and slimed-on. Magicians say that this feeling is a “light fiber” – like a curse – left by the burglar to suck your energy (your anger and fear at your own helplessness and vulnerability) . Magicians believe that that is what the burglar was really after – not whatever it was he stole, but rather your anger and fear – which he can suck through the line he left there like soda through a straw.
In fact, these light fibers – which emerge from a person’s navel and form an egg-shaped aura around the physical body – are visible to psychic people; that is to say, to people who are born with or have developed this faculty. See Barbara Brennan’s book Light Emerging, which contains vivid drawings of what these lines look like to people with psychic vision. Carlos Castaneda’s books also discuss light fibers at great length and detail, as does my book Thought Forms. The point is, that when we talk about vampires, we’re not talking about Transylvania, we’re talking about everyday society: abusive parents, spouses, teachers, bosses, cops, airport officials, etc. Any bad faith; bullying; lying; sneakiness; even gossiping behind someone’s back; is quite literally a vampirization of energy. Black magic is what everybody is doing to everyone else all the time, beneath a superficial veneer of social niceties and tea-party hypocrisy.
Magicians say that the idea of other people’s “webs” is no metaphor: that everybody is tied up with everyone else in the universe by fibers of light. In normal human relationships there is a give and take of energy (love) through these light fibers, which is what happens when people are making each other feel good. However, there are people who use these fibers only to take, not to give. These are the black magicians.
When someone presses you for something which you really don’t feel like giving, but you do it anyway and then feel put out or used in the process; or when someone starts an argument or fight with you when there was no need for there to have been an argument or fight in the first place; or when someone invades your space in some other way (such as by being gratuitously nasty, threatening, or annoying; or by making you feel dirty, used, or frazzled) ; then that person is literally a vampire who is out to suck your energy. What actually happens is that the person shoots a light fiber into you, and sucks your energy (your good feelings, your joy) through it, leaving you feeling bad.
Women are used to men coming onto them for sexual favors; and practically everyone has experienced hustlers coming onto them for money. However the actual gain when someone tries to force you to do something you don’t want to do is not the sex or money (the surface payoff) , but rather the bending you out of shape. By making you react they can suck your energy. Even a refusal, if made in anger or fear or disgust, is a positive payoff to such people.
There are certain people who are natural vampires. Just being around them is energy-depleting, and becoming involved in an intimate relationship with them can be devastating. We all know of couples where one partner emotionally trashes the other one, but the victim can’t seem to separate, or even understand what is going on. This is because the vampire has his victim bewitched. Alcoholics and drug addicts often literally vampirize their families and friends – deplete everyone around them energetically. There are lots of families where one tyrannical dictator has everyone else in constant turmoil or jumping through hoops because of them: this person is literally sucking other family members' energy (and feeding it in turn to his or her demons) .
What makes this subject so difficult to understand is that – except for people with developed psychic vision – there is nothing visible going on. There is nothing you can point to or see openly when someone is deep in your space and sucking your energy. Vampirization takes place on a feeling (light fiber) level. To the victim, the feelings are as palpable as being physically attacked. The only way to avoid being vampirized in such a situation is to not react at all. To refuse the vampire in anger, for example, or to recoil in disgust, is as much a gain for the vampire as acceding to him is. However, the light fibers that a vampire has in his victims are themselves irritating, like mosquito bites. It is difficult for the victims who have such lines in them not to react to the vampire’s provocations (by constantly thinking about him) .
People can only enter your space if you let them enter it. The way you let them enter is by thinking about them and reacting emotionally to them: caring what they do or don’t do. To eject them from your space is a matter of ceasing to think about them. You free yourself from them when you stop caring about them, when you stop fawning or feeling offended by them, when you stop rehearsing mental scenarios of validation or vindication or vengeance. But until you get their lines out of you, it’s impossible to stop thinking about them.
To have other people’s lines in you – to have them encroaching in your space – drains you of energy. To have your lines in other people (which you feel as a compulsive need to be on their case all the time) may give you an immediate jolt of ego power, but in the long run it weakens you by making you dependent on the people you are sucking, and extremely vulnerable to them if they should ever decide to turn on you.
Therefore, it is a good idea to pull out the lines of vampirization, which other people have in you; and pull back the ones that you stuck into them. Detaching these lines of vampirization through visualization is an easy way to begin the disentanglement process.
Pulling out lines is not difficult to do. You may want to preface it by casting a Scat spell (see the BOS file posted at
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MagicalAlmanac/files/Magic%20101/ for details. A Mars planetary hour would be a good time to cast such a spell and to cast out a vampire's lines, particularly if it is a person you are afraid of.
Go to a power place in nature, or a big tree. Take a firm stance, and imagine that you are gripping with both hands a rope or cord stuck in your navel. This is the usual place where vampires stick light fibers in your body. If additionally you feel hypnotized by, and unable to separate from, the sexual relationship, then the vampire probably also stuck lines in your genitals. If there’s a lot of hatred underlying the relationship, particularly accompanied by health or financial problems, then the vampire probably has lines in your head. You have to banish each line the vampire has in your body.
Try to actually feel or imagine something like a rope in your hands that goes from the respective part of your body to the other person, through which they are sucking energy from you. You can look at a photograph of the person who is vampirizing you while you do this, or just visualize him or her standing there before you. Then, with a movement of great repugnance, determination, and finality, jerk the line out of your body and cast it to the ground. You don’t have to actually see the light fiber as long as you can feel it – i.e., imagine that it is there (although some psychic people do indeed see the light fiber: things like that tend to be seen for a split second – a fleeting glimpse or impression – out of the corner of your eye) .
Next, pull your lines out of the other person. Take a firm stance, and imagine you are gripping a line that goes out from your navel (or wherever) to the given part of the other person’s body. Imagine the person is standing right there in front of you. Then with a sharp, determined jerk, pull the line out of the person and cast it to a tree.
If that vampire was really bringing you down, you should feel immediate relief and release after doing this exercise. Sometimes you don’t even realize the extent to which they were bringing you down until you get their damn lines out of you. You should feel more youthful, since that’s what vampires suck: other people’s youthfulness and joy. This is one of those psychic techniques, which works so well and so quickly that people are surprised by it.
To cut the light fibers you have in others and they have in you is like breaking a hypnotic spell. For the first time you can see exactly what is going on, and in time to stop reacting to it automatically if you so choose. If another person says, “Please pass the salt!” with a dart of anger behind it, you can clearly see the dart of anger before activating a dart of your own, and you can choose not to activate it if you so desire. You can just pass them the salt as if they’d asked for it nicely; you’re not compelled to throw anger at them with the salt, as you would be if you still had lines in them and they had lines in you.
The next time you meet that person you’ll be surprised by how different you feel about them, and by how much clearer your understanding of the dynamics of the relationship is. You’ll have much more detachment, objectivity, and freedom from this person. If the vampire puts lines back in you (which can happen; you might even have a dream war with the person, since these lines are often put in during dreamless sleep) , then just do another line-pulling out ceremony.
Pull the person’s lines out as many times as it takes until they give up and leave you alone. It is by getting control over yourself, by not letting yourself be jerked around by other people’s lines, that you can take control of any relationship.
