First of all, thanks so much for having me as guest. And thanks to the readers for reading and stopping by today.
Next for the blog: I thought I’d talk about psychic vampires because my demons are an extreme variety of a psychic vamp. They crave and need lifeforce energy to survive.
Psychic vampires need energy instead of blood from an external source. That energy is the lifeforce from another person, animal and also nature: trees, rivers and earth. Some believe psychic vampires actually exist. I think they do. They’re energy predators. And we may not realize we’ve fallen prey to their attacks. Ever feel drained or exhausted after being around a certain person? The result to the victim can be an emotional, mental and physical drain. They may not even be aware they’re a psychic vampire. Other symptoms include: headache, dizziness, loss of consciousness, disorientations, depression, weakness and tiredness.
In vampire lore, there are those who aren’t capable of generating their own energy and don’t store it either. They must draw that energy in order to sustain themselves.
How to block a psychic vampire.
We all have the ability to control the inward and outward flow of energy with practice and meditation. A quick way to protect from psychic vampire attacks is to visualize a bright white light surrounding you like a large bubble. And with clear intend, make the bubble your guardian shield against all attacks and harm.
Another technique is called the Finger Interlock Technique. Create two circles by touching the middle finger and thumb together of each hand. Then interlock these two circles forming a link. Imagine a pure white light surrounding you and say, “I am now fully protected and energized.” This technique is also a good mini-meditation to help focus before an exam, an interview, before a performance, anywhere you need extra confidence and positive energy. The immortal demons in DAMNED AND DEFIANT, my latest release from Ellora’s Cave (8/12) behave like very bad psychic vampires. They draw lifeforce energy from mortals through sexual encounters to sustain their world. If they collect too much, their prey can die. It’s best that these demons don’t get emotionally attached to their prey, called Kithra, because the risk of killing them becomes higher. Dante breaks that rule when he meets Haley.
Mortal women surrender to Dante’s seductions. He is a Drone, an immortal who feeds off their lifeforce energy—the chi that keeps his kind alive. When his dimension is on the edge of destruction, Dante must seek the help of one special woman.
Haley tries to draw out the man buried deep within the demon. Their fierce, undeniable passion unravels his plans and threatens her life. Can Dante bear to abandon her when he leaves Earth forever? Dante will have to choose whether to return to his world or to give up his immortality and share his future with Haley.
The skinwalker—part man, part coyote—shifted into his human form as he gazed upon the young woman, his quarry. She removed her clothes and dropped them onto the cool, desert sand. She gave him a lustful glance as if she was the one controlling the seduction.
“Something like that,” he answered. He felt a flush of heat on his face. How the hell was she still aware? Something wasn’t right. This Kithra was different than the others, and he wasn’t sure why. He slid his hands over her arms and sparks skidded across her skin.
“I love the desert at night,” she added as her eyelids flickered. The air around her body crackled with electricity, her short, blonde hair stood out from the static. Not his usual choice for Kithras. He preferred ones with long, dark hair like the Drones from Prygos. It had to be her level of energy that drew him to this one.
“Yes,” he murmured, then waved his hand over her face, deepening the trance with little effort. He extended a finger and ran it down the side of her cheek, her neck, between her small breasts and cut diagonally across her flat stomach to her narrow hips.
