Energy Vampires: How to Steal Light, Luck, and Energy From Others (Or Not)

by Scott Jeffrey

Is there really such a thing as emotional vampires that steal energy from others?

Or have I gone off the esoteric deep end?

Here’s the thing: Most of us want to be positive, upstanding, good people.

I get it. I have the same impulse.

But my experiences have taught me unequivocally, that the only way to touch the “true light” in us is through the darkness.

Paradoxical, I know. But perhaps this resonates with some of your life experiences too?

Here, we’ll explore the ins and outs of emotional vampirism—how people are stealing energy from each other every day, right under our noses.

Then, we’ll take a look at what we can do about it: how to detect it, protect from it, and contain our vampirism.

Okay. Let’s dive in.

How to Change Any Behavior: A Definitive Guide

by Scott Jeffrey

Imagine your life without impulse control issues:

  • You get everything done when you decide.
  • The word “procrastination” doesn’t exist.
  • You stay focused on tasks without getting distracted.
  • Temptations and addictions to food, TV, media, alcohol, sugar, shopping, and other drugs disappear.

It’s fair to say that humans would evolve and develop in ways beyond our imagination.

But why does it seem so difficult to change behaviors, create good habits, and stop bad ones?

I know of one executive behavioral coach who Fortune 500 CEOs pay over $100k to change their behavior.

Can you imagine? They only focus on only ONE behavior—and their work together takes over a year!

Crazy, right?

So what’s going on here?

This definitive guide reveals the findings on the science of impulse control and outlines specific strategies you can use to change your behaviors for the better.

Repressed Emotions: A Guide to Understanding Feelings Hidden Within Us (And How to Transmute Them)

by Scott Jeffrey

OVERVIEW: This guide explores how repressed emotions affect us and provides a step-by-step process for transforming negative emotions into positive energy.

______________

I’ve always felt at home with thoughts and ideas; I play with them every day.

But emotions were like aliens inhabiting my body and mind. Like many others, I didn’t know how to relate to them or what to do with them.

As is the case with all psychic content, that which we can’t deal with often gets swept under the rug.

And although this approach may seem to work in the short-term, over time repressing our emotions reaks havoc on our mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing.

So what are repressed emotions? What are they doing to us? And how the heck can we work with them?

Towards the end of this guide, I’m going to show you a powerful process you can use to become conscious of your repressed emotions and to transmute them.

How to Use the Hero’s Journey for Personal Development

by Scott Jeffrey

Treasure, love, reward, approval, honor, status, freedom, survival … these are some of the many things we associate with the hero’s journey.

We don’t find the meaning of the hero’s journey in slaying the dragon or saving the princess—these are colorful metaphors and symbols for a more significant purpose.

Battling inner and outer demons, confronting bullies, and courting your ultimate mate symbolize a passage through the often-treacherous tunnel of self-discovery and individuation to mature adulthood.

At the end of each journey (if there is such an end), you’re different—sometimes visually, but always internally.

Today, let’s explore the meaning of the hero’s journey and see how it applies to psychological development and our ability to actualize more of our potential.
