FAQ – Visualization

I received a really good question about the feeding method I posted the other day. (The Aura Net.) And I thought I’d share it as a post, since it might help some others who are struggling as well. 🙂

Q: I am very aware of visualizing auras, but I always seem to have an issue keeping concentrated on the thing at hand. I can concentrate on the overall aura, but the second I move my mind on to the next step, I have broken concentration with the first step. I have been studying the aspects of auras for over 5 years and I have yet to master this problem. Do you have any tips as to how to keep concentration going during an aura feeding?

A: I used to have the same problem actually, so first of all it’s great to hear I wasn’t the only one. 🙂

The thing I found that really helped me was to stop concentrating so much on the feeding aspect and concentrate on the visualization aspect. As irrelevant as it seems, I did some completely unrelated visualization exercises to strengthen my “psychic sight.” Basically, strengthened my ability to visualize so that my concentration could go into the actual feeding and not struggling to see it happen.

The most simple but effective ones I found were the ones that had to do with color. Try these and see if they help:

1. Close your eyes and imagine that you are holding 7 balloons, each tied to its own string. Each balloon is a different color: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. If you can’t visualize colors yet (and some can’t), just label each balloon with the word of the color it is. Then, one by one release each balloon in any order you please and watch it float up and out of sight. Each time you do this, it will be easier to see the colors, and you’ll be able to hold on to the balloon in your sight longer.

2. Close your eyes and visualize a red ball at the very very far right of your vision, then watch it move across your vision all the way to the left and out of sight. Then do the same for an orange ball, a yellow one, etc. for each of the 7 colors I listed above. Again, if you can’t see colors, just label them in your mind. Like the balloons, the colors will be more recognizable and the shape of the balls more definitive after a few tries.

As silly and pointless as these exercises seem, they really do help you train yourself to put yourself into the mental state to do successful visualizations to the point where it will be second nature to you, and concentrating on feeding will be a breeze. 🙂

Psychic Feeding Method #3 – The Aura “Net”

This method is great, and completely non-intrusive if you don’t have a specific donor and you have moral issues with taking from a stranger without permission.  It’s called the Aura/Aural/Energy Net.  Choose your favorite. 🙂

The technique is simple and can be used a multitude of ways.  Like most feeding techniques you kind of have to experiment a little and see which is most comfortable and effective for you.

The Aura Net is used to feed on ambient energy, meaning that it is no longer connected to a person but “given off” by them, like–body heat.  Ambient energy exists anywhere and everywhere that people are expelling energy or emotions, but it is most concentrated where there are large crowds (clubs, concerts, rallies, etc) who are preferably gathered for a similar purpose, this synergy makes the energy more intense.

When around such a crowd, it is often the nature of a psychic vampyre to absorb the energy anyway, but for more concentrated feeding, you use the aura net.

Take a moment to focus on your own energy field, visualize it if it helps.  Some see it as a sort of field of light, or a big amorphous cloud, but it can be whatever you see it as.  Now, as you imagine this energy field, or your aura, focus on extending it outward from yourself and into the crowd around you, thereby creating a “net” that captures the ambient energy in the room.  At this point, the energy joins with yours and can be absorbed through your “net” and back into yourself, or simply pull your energy back in and bring the ambient energy with it and into you as your energy closes back in on you.  Always always remember though to pull the energy back in after feeding rather than leaving yourself open.

Simple as that!

With this technique you are not “stealing” the energy from another human being, but simply taking what they willingly give off.  Though, it should be considered that it is not often suitable for sustaining most psychic vampyres for long long periods of time.  Energy directly from a donor or other human being is almost always more potent and sustainable, and should be used if available.

Psychic Vampyre Feeding Method #2

Contact feeding.

This is a very common and simple way of feeding, but more importantly it is very very easy for most people.  This can be done by holding hands, hugging, kissing, or even through sex or sexual activities. This is very similar to biting, except it involves you taking rather than your donor giving.

Here’s the gist of it:

While in contact with your donor, concentrate on his or her energy or aura.  Imagine that through touching them you are physically connected to this energy.  Then, with a deep breath in, imagine drawing that energy from them, through wherever you have contact and into your core (this differs for many people, some consider it to be their chest, heart, solar plexus (right below the rib cage), or throat, most often in line with one of the seven chakras).  Use whatever visualization works best and feels most right to you.

Some people do not use visualizations but merely breath alone to focus and feed on the energy of another as they can “feel” it and do not need to see it.  Like I said, the method differs slightly from person to person, experiment and see which works best for you.

IMPORTANT: BY NO MEANS should techniques like this be used for “fun,” out of vengeance, on someone you don’t know or has not given you permission, or if it is not soley out of need.  Psychic vampyrism can easily harm those who it is practiced on if it is abused.

Hunger.

I’m not usually one to just come right out and talk about my vampyrism. Vampyrism in general, no problem, but I’ve seen enough ridicule and misconceptions to be wary about connecting all of this to myself.

But–I haven’t fed in weeks–and call it the effects of hunger, but this was the only thing on my mind, and the only thing I could think to write about right now.

I was dumb enough to think that–after 2 weeks, I could easily make it through another 2 until Matt’s lip piercing was healed (don’t ask why this is important to feeding, it just is), and I’ve never reacted so badly to not feeding for so long.

I’ve been enduring the normal fatigue, compensating with gratuitous amounts of caffeine, but today, somehow, everything just fell out. I woke up this morning STARVING. Not energy hunger, physical, real, painful hunger, and dying of thirst. I didn’t make the connection.

I of course scarfed down my breakfast and chugged my bottle of water, feeling more than satisfied, but less than fifteen minutes later the hunger was back full force and I found myself reaching for more water. Strangely enough though, the normal fatigue that cued me to feed was gone and replaced with this horrible can’t-sit-still restlessness, SANS caffeine believe it or not.

This is about the time when I began recalling Day’s horror stories of insatiable hunger and unquenchable thirst when she’d gone for a while without feeding. I assumed it was because of her sanguinary side, but this matched completely.

I scoured the internet and my books for feeding techniques other than the one I used and this is what I found:

  • Use of aural “nets” to capture energy from other people
  • Using the same technique but on large crowds
  • Physical touch involving deep relaxation and concentration

The first two are difficult–one: I haven’t refined my strengths enough to feed without physical contact, and two: I have absolutely no access to a “large group of people” in an office for 6.

Now, the physical touch technique held no problems for me–until I considered my donor. A restless, angsty, and skeptical guy who couldn’t sit still if you were paying him. Deep relaxation and ESPECIALLY deep concentration were out of the question. And you can’t necessarily go up to strangers and say “Hey uh–can I borrow you for a second? Real quick.”

I settled for a big bloody steak to tide me over, a sort of placebo if you will, to trick your body into thinking its consuming real energy. Cruel, I know, but it helped me for a couple of hours. Now I’m back to scouring the beautiful thing called google for help. :/

Glorious, right?
