Jung believed that the vampire image could be understood as an expression of what he termed the “shadow,” those aspects of the self that the conscious ego was unable to recognize. Some aspects of the shadow were positive. But usually the shadow contained repressed wishes, anti-social impulses, morally questionable motives, childish fantasies of a grandiose nature, and other traits felt to be shameful.
HOW TO FRUSTRATE A VAMPIRE:
Develop healthy boundaries for yourself.
Never give them personal information – respond to their questions with your own questions.
Keep yourself focused upon your own positive creativity. “Idle hands are the vampires workshop.”
Never engage with these people. Remain aloof.
“Cut off their head” – since they live in their heads, having no heart connection, this is the source of their power. Example: Questioning their intelligence
Stay conscious! These people are stopped in their tracks by the Light of Consciousness. Show them what they are. Respond that you are feeling drained by them.
Go for the heart! Example: When you feel drained by a person, a class or a speaker, just get up and walk away. This is staying conscious.
