Combating Parasites

“Energy Parasites”

Mixed Media art journal entry

The text:  “Energy parasites unintentionally draw emotional energy from others.  Parasites that feed on me leave me drained and fearful.  I just want to sleep all the time.”

I perceive the parasites as blood-sucking bats, drawing off my energy as they fly in and out of my life.   I did not notice when I selected the image of the woman that she is pouring and mixing something with her hands.   As I look at it now, as I type this, I think I unconsciously selected this image to show that I can develop something to combat the energy parasites.

Hmm…. what potion is she brewing there?

Maybe  I’ll explore that in my next journal entry.

  1. Wow, this is so good. It’s colorful and arresting. I think when I get out of the hospital I’m going to start one of these journals…so much potential there for creativity.


    1. Thank you, Vi. Yes, an art journal can be liberating and healing. I highly recommend it. I started mine with a simple notebook and markers. Now I’m into paint and other media.

  2. This is great – I always thought of those folk as energy vampires so the use of bats is inspired – indeed sucking the life out of you … wonderful portrayal. Don’t you love the way the subconscious is working without us noticing 🙂

  3. I love your use of colour – the dull orange and purple against the black really give a feeling of energy draining away. As for those energy parasites – avoid them -in my experience they never change.

  4. Energy vampires is bad business. I try to avoid them when I can too. Or wear amber. Or imagine you are wearing very strong armor to bounce that bad stuff off. I hope that’s okay that my comments have to do with combating the EV. Great visual journal page!

  5. Powerful image, its always good to preserve the energy with more potent sources…

  6. energy parasites – do I ever resonate with that phrase. Leaves one so depleted until the next meditation or gardening time. I really enjoyed your collage.

  7. Energy parasites often do it conciously. As long as you are aware it is happening you can guard against it. They are the people who visit you because you raise their spirits. Being aware allows you to do that without it taking energy away from you.
    Excellent collage.
