Ephesians 6:16 from the Bible has a message for us today.
"Take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one."
I don't believe that an evil one such as a devil with horns and a pitchfork actually exists; however, there is detrimental energy pinging all around us. Empaths feel this as well as picking up on positive energy.
Let's say detrimental energy is the evil one. It might include the pulling or draining we feel around certain folks who inadvertently siphon our energy when we are not keenly aware of our own energy. I'm not saying that any person is evil—all they want is love and light. What they may not realize is that love and light is readily available from within themselves. It is in each of us because we are sparks of the Divine, which is love and light.
How can we be more selective and pick up only what will benefit us? How can we help these energy vampires without allowing them to drain us? By being filled with love and light—pure Source Consciousness. This audio explains how.
