The Balance of nature

In nature there is balance, things are born and die, and things grow and rot. In the world of energy this isn’t much different either and some of us are more suited for the “clean up” job than many trained and skilled healers. Gifted in ways some of them never have heard of.

The Vulture

The Vulture is a beautiful animal if you think about it. Sure the way that it lives and the fact that it eats carcasses can be seen as “icky”, yet it has a very important role in nature. Just like some insects and fungi clean up, so do the vultures, as they do so, they stop the spread of diseases like botulism to healthy living animals. Sounds useful right? 

Their stomach acid is so powerful that it dissolves bones and kills diseases that could otherwise kill creatures less suited to the job of cleaning up decaying bodies. 

The Role of the Psychic Vampire

Vampires exist, psychic vampires exist, and within the energy community, similar to vultures, we don’t have the best name because of the role we play.. Energy vampires are usually very capable in handling energy that makes most energy workers sick, because we are made for it. It is almost as if we have a natural knack for dealing with gunky yucky energy few can handle.   This natural resistance to harmful energies could make us rather useful long term if we were accepted more within the energy community. 

The world of energy has a flow, stagnancy is bad, and to keep things flowing something has to take and transmute the gunky stuff back into something useful. 

Tendrils that are attuned to feed can be used like sharp blades much like a scalpel in the  hands of a skilled physician operating on a wound. Notice I said the word SKILLED. Any intrusion in someone's energy can lead to long lasting damage if done incorrectly. 

Since the psychic vampire is instinctively aware of how to draw in energy, they can use their tendrils to hone in on the rot and draw it out by controlling the flow of the energy. 

More useful then you think

Let's say you got someone who has a lot of nasty, gunky energy in their system; how will you heal them? Drain out the gunk and replace it? Good idea, but  how many healers are adapted to handle the gunk naturally? How many are trained to cut through energy systems right into the source of the gunk? How many have the skills and experience to do this with only the slightest of wounds? 

How many will have to put up heavy shields or undergo rigorous grounding/cleansing to even handle such a procedure? Life isn’t always just about putting IN energy, sometimes you also have to drain the poison, cutting out the cancer with the sharpest of tools. 

You see where I am going. A healer + vampire make a great couple. The vampire targets the bad energy, easily cutting right through the energy system, to draw it out, and the healer puts in healing fresh energy and then helps seal the wounds in the energy body.

But for this pairing to work,  the healer has to trust the vampire, and of course the patient has to trust the situation as well. With so many preconceived notions and biases about vampires this isn’t  always so easy.

Additionally, as some say, aftercare matters so, someone (usually the healer side of the coin) will have to check up on the situation to see how things went and if the person is healing up well. 

Two sides of a coin

Some healers will deem vampires as utterly evil, but this is a question of ethics. Is the blade evil for being able to hurt? What defines evil are the choices the wielder of the blade makes. I am a person who believes in ethical feeding, which for me either means feeding from areas, not directly targeting people (i.e. ambient feeding); or from willing donors. Just because I am born with the tools of a hunter doesn’t mean I am automatically bad. The hunter hunts, that is its nature.

Now consider, some people have TOO MUCH energy so they need to off load it. To whom do they offload? This excess energy can be used to heal others, or even to sate the hunger of a psychic vampire.

So why can’t healers work together with vampires? Each using the inherent skills given to them to their fullest potential.  

Consider that there might even be things you learn from listening to those of us who are forced to work with and feed on energy to survive. Again, every person has to decide their own ethics on this. Just like with everyone else, no two psychic vampires are going to be exactly the same, and no two healers will be exactly the same, but by confronting our biases towards psychic vampires, the energy working community as a whole can benefit from cooperation- utilizing both sides of the coin, instead of just the side of the coin you find most appealing. Just as the vultures have their place, so too do we.

Elemental Feeding (or how to munch on trees)

Author: Masticina Akicta

Date: 9 September 2021

What is Feeding from Elements

Did you know that psy vampires and energy workers can feed from the earth and the trees, or thunderstorms. You might feel giddy around thunderstorms and feel energized. Nature indeed has a lot of energy to offer. And some of that energy can be fed upon. 

 For many psy vampires feeding from nature is a secondary option. Not all vampires can do this, not all psy vampires can do this and the gains are different then feeding from mainly human life energy. It simply is not the same. But it is good having an alternative ready if the worst situation hits. 

During the early phases of Covid with its long lock-downs my human energy resources were dwindling. I would travel by public transport you see, so easy energy! 

 The COVID diet was forced it upon me, meaning munching trees, and I find that it simply couldn’t fully fill the hunger and needs. You survive on it but don’t thrive on it. A glass half full isn’t the right word for it. Trees just don’t fill you up as much. A thunderstorm though can be delicious but the afterglow doesn’t lasts long. Worse when those thunderstorms go by and not over you.

The Hunger

The hunger drives us to seek sustenance, be it through blood or energy. And psy vampires have ways to get energy indirectly, from distance and certain locations. Just go to the right place at the right moment. A bar, a disco, the local super-mall or train-station. Wherever many people share a smaller area for a long time. Energy is around, this is called Ambient Feeding.

Yet in the days of COVID with restricted travel and people working in their own houses where possible such wells have dried up. And even now, in many places life hasn’t started up fully so it is so hard to connect with people. 

About Frequencies

Everything has a frequency, earth has a very slow one, trees got slow ones, thunder has quick ones. And humans have certain frequencies. I would say that vampires have a different frequency then most humans as part of their own nature. Thing is it is easier to pull down frequencies than to raise them. This makes feeding from storms much easier than feeding from trees.    You can feed from trees, but it is a slower thing as the energy moves slower. 

There are methods to use energy constructs to raise the frequency. Or one simply has to be out in nature quite a bit longer. 

Using constructs it works much like a batdetector, an adjusted radio lowers batsound down to our hearing range. 

Another much slower way it so to let the energy get to you, slowly, as nature goes. This takes a much longer time! You probably will need to learn a few new tricks in meditation among the way to get there.

Mostly an alternative

I won’t go all hippie on you, in my eyes nature feeding, the slower ways. Is mostly an alternative to our inner needs for human living energy. Prana, Chi, Ki. That is the stuff. And some things like trees, nature, are too slow to be really a permanent solution. I would more call them a backup if all other options run out. 

Potential for survival, but not thriving. The highs are simply not there. 

Yet if you have to survive you take what you get. 

How To

Many vampires will just enjoy sitting outside, or inside, watching a thunderstorm, a huge rain or other strong weather patterns. Allowing the energy to pour into them. 

But if it is a lower type of energy, like trees and earth, then it takes longer. 

Unless one uses constructs to raise the frequencies. Think bat detector but then the other way around. One has to be out there in nature for a long time, mentally connect with it and let it give you some energy slowly. 

Note: Do not overfeed of specific trees or an area. Nature needs the energy itself to survive. An overfed tree might get sick and die. 


  • How did you deal with Covid and the lock downs so far?
  • Did you find any alternative source of energy to work out for you?
  • Did your need for coffee rise up hugely too?

Simplified Ambient Feeding

Author: Masticina Akicta

Date: 6 September 2021

Who Am I

I am Masticina Akicta, I woke up to my psy vampirism more then 20 years ago. In that time I had a lot of energy experiences and learned a lot. And got quite some insights into energy. In time reading and energy manipulating became a second nature. Much of what I learned what by experience. 

Now the question, why does this matter? It became obvious that maybe I think too easy about things at time. After all, when I was just 2 years in my awakening I had trouble with shielding, feeding, filtering and so on too. I have through time reached advanced skills levels. But this is for the vampires who just woke up. So, lets simplify things a bit. 

Simple Ways to Feed

We all swim in energy, so the easiest is to go somewhere there is much energy and just soak it in. This will give you good energy and bad energy. And let me tell you that there is a difference in energy. The energy you feed on matters. In quality and effects it can and will have on you. I used to feed in rather dirty but high energy areas. Meaning the energy could and would affect me. 

A lot of young psy vampires know to get energy one is just having to find a fight or maybe causing it. Fights or irritations lead to release of energy and easy food. Or to draw attention from others on other ways. But many of these have a negative name to it. The reason why psy vampires get a bad name. 


If one has a busy party scene in town. Or a shopping mall, maybe a sport place where big plays happen. You don’t even have to like the music, or shopping, or sport. But the energy there is high chance on much free energy out there in the ambiance. 

I used to feed a lot at a dance hall where they had different kinds of feasts. Yummy delicious energy and so much of it you could cycle it. 

Changing where I lived and getting older led me too feed in public areas like train stations. A lot of people rushing in and out, not as yummy but functional. 

Simple Ways of Improve Energy Quality

Energy in public places can be quite dirty. REALLY dirty, or contain things that will affect you badly. You are what you eat! So early on it helps to use some basic tools to improve the energy quality. Even the most basic filter-shield can help take out much of the gunk. Gunk, my word for the yucky energy you don’t want to feed off. As on learned to filter and process things become quite clear, that the syrope like stuff isn’t good food. 

Energy Constructs

First all all, an Energy Construct is something you create to do something for you. Like a shield to keep bad stuff out! Or an energy transmutation machine. To create a construct visualize and will your energy to do something. At first it will be hard, but like muscles energy manipulation will become easier and at a point you’ll be able to use perma shields and highly advanced transmutation systems. 


Transmutation is changing energy A into B. It is treating energy to change it, or do something with it. A basic filter shield won’t require knowledge about this though. But more advanced methods will use transmutation.


Cycling is when you open up your energy system and let the energy pour through you. No filtering, no cleansing, no transmutation, nothing. You and the energy are one. This can be done at big dance parties, rock or metal concerts and so on. It also means you’ll draw into yourself a lot of “crud” and other stuff that WILL affect you. If people use drug at the party, expect to be affected by such too, to a lesser degree. 

It is easy and cheap and if it is safe enough you can quickly refill your needs. At the price of feeling groggy the day after. 

Filtershielding/Filterbox Shielding

A basic shield can be used to force the energy through to block most of the bad energy out. What it bad? That is up to you! Emotions technically can be seen as bad energy. Emotions do add taste to energy and many vampires start out as Negative Energy Feeders. Aka, able to feed upon bad stuff. Some energy is obviously bad and would take work to transmute and turn into useful, and transmutation requires energy! So filtering that out means less work is needed. 

Visualize a box in what energy goes in one way, is pushed through and gets out without said bad things. Filter shielding might require a number of filters on a row, much like how in nature water is filtered and cleaned. 

In nature water goes down into the earth, through a few layers of ground and sand with pebbles and finally pours out much cleaner. 

Think of your box the same, energy goes in top, then goes through a number of filter layers, ending out much cleaner. It might come out like a clear enough quick running syrope. 

Yet just as nature this takes time. So you are probably stuck in the same location for a while as you do this. Train Travel, or bus travel if that is common in your area means you are stuck in an area and got the time. So using slower methods to feed make sense. 

Make sure energy is captured in something, like a cup made of energy, so you can sip from it. And take it slow and enjoy the ride. 

Time and Experience

As you get experience and your gifts awake some things seem ever so easy or obvious. But this depends on the person, there is innate needs and ways to deal with it. And yes it helps to learn things guided. 

In the beginning life is pretty darn harsh though for a psy vampire or a hybrid. Not to mention sanguinary vampires. But those have other teachers. 

My suggestion is to learn basic shielding techniques and use that as crude and basic filters. That way you can decide what energy you feed on and what you won’t. Keep a dairy, find good feeding grounds, and learn to keep track of your own energy levels. So that you feed on time! A dairy is bound to help with that. If required create your own little secret language of signs that you can put aside normal dairy entrances. 

The Fuel-tank

So how do you know how much energy you have? That takes experience. See it as a fuel tank on a car, it only lasts so long. So you need to check its level every once in a while at least. And, if you have a very busy time you might have burned up more energy. 

Learning your energy body will mean you can see ahead when you need to have fed. And keep healthy and sane. 

Personally I can do a pressure test, much like a blood pressure test. I try to compress my energy system, a within a certain range, and I measure its reaction. If it goes very easy it probably means I am running low. If it shows much tension then a lot of energy pours through my internal system and systems should be fine. Another way is to learn to recognize your hunger…

Basic Beacons

Basic Beacons

Author: Masticina Akicta

Date: 24-06-2021

What are Beacons

A beacon is a strong energy signature. It forms from inside of you and begins to shine out like a lighthouse. It is like a finger print of your deeper energy systems that shines through the outer layers. And it can be used to find others within your own frequency. Usually people talk about this within the vampire community. But other people have it too. 

More then just Vampires

Usually the vampires talk about the beacon as if it is their own. But that isn’t true, within the VC we simply talk about the beacon as how we can recognize each other and why certain things happen. Like how people react to us or how donors find us.

Witches also seem to have a knack of finding each other. And people gifted with energy too, and dragons, therians, otherkin, it is like an invisible scent that makes two people meet up and send out information to each other. 

Among a world of people who hardly pick up any hints knowing someone is different or part of a certain group you share is very useful. 

From Awakening to Lighthouse

A beacon begins like a little seed, it is what you always where but waiting for you to grow and become. 

In some families things like vampirism, witchcraft, or even otherkin is strong. And a child might be born with a gift. For a while though the child probably shows no sign. Sometimes early on a kid begins to show signs of their energy gifts. And those who know might be able to guide them. Or sometimes fate has it that a child takes longer to fully understand their nature and wakes up. Not all are as lucky.

But once one truly wakes up and learns the depths of their gifts the energy shines like a lighthouse. Calling out to others, to make connections! 

Kin seeks Kinship

Your awoken energy will begin to attract others. Be it others equal to you, or close to you. For instance I might be a vampire and a rabbit-therian, something I can’t deny, that doesn’t means I only attract those. Witches for some odd reason find their way to me too.

No reason to complain, I offer advice and I can learn from their ways. 

Also many vampires will note that people at attracted to them. Maybe not sexually but for some reason want to hang around. While many dragons denote that people are quicker to fear them. They might not be able to tell WHY but they will be effected by it! 


In a way the beacon is like the tag on a new fridge you plan to buy. With information about the efficiency, energy use, size and storage etc. 

The Beacon is an invisible energy based tagging system that helps one find one like one self or find someone for another reason. 

Through shielding we might be temporarily adjust how the energy world sees us. But in the end our identity is written on us. 

Which leads in our lives to many interesting experiences and meetings.

Ambient Feeding 1

Ambient Feeding 

Author: Masticina Akicta

Date: 21 June 2021

Different Types of Psychic Feeding

Lets work out the basics, Psychic vampires need to feed. There are different ways to feed, from donors to surroundings and many different sources. Yet, human life energy is what most if not all psychic vampires know the best. It is just on that right frequency.

Human life energy can be found in many places, donors and of of course areas a lot of humans frequent or get stuck in. 

In the most basic terms there are a few main ways to feed psychically

  1. Touch, touching the donor.
  2. Distance Feeding, connecting with a donor through tendrils.
  3. Astrally, connecting with someone through their energy signature.
  4. Sexually, hello Succubus. A very interactive form of touch feeding.
  5. Ambient, hovering in the left over energy from an area.

Ambient feeding can be used to draw from nature, storms and other things. Ambient is the most distant, though astral feeding can be seen as distant too. Ambient is the world of energy around you. 

What is Ambient Feeding

You probably the term Ambient Feeding or Filter Feeding. It means taking energy from around you into yourself. Everything that lives has energy, Chi, Ki, Prana, whatever its name. And like energy fields it can leave out into the world as they pass. 

Direct feeding by touch or distance by tendrils does connects you with a source for a much easier and cleaner way to feed. 

But not all have donors or don’t always have access to their donors. During Covid many of use learned that all to well! 

So Ambient Feeding is taking up the energy that is left by others, energy is all around us, people leave it as they move through areas or amass in churches, rock concerts, train stations and so on. The quality of the energy depends on the area, a disco tends to have, depending on the crowd, very happy hyped energy! While some parties will have a lot of people using drugs and that will influence the energy too. 

The worst places to feed probably would be the DMV. 

The thing is with a donor you have much more control what kind of energy you get. With ambient though you hover in a lot of stuff you won’t like. And though vampires can handle some bad energy it takes time to burn through and treat. 

Every location has different levels of energy, I remember that before Covid the train station had energy enough to top up 3 vampires. During C, I got quite hungry, Even at the points I could travel, human movement was so little, there just was no food. It slowly is returning to semi normal again. Yum, food! 

How to Ambient Feed

Though to many it comes naturally once the basics are understood there are a few different ways one can feed. One can open their energy system and just like a black hole draw energy in. Or one could draw the energy to them through tendril's and later advanced energy systems. 

 Simply begins means going out to places with a lot of energy, public transport hallways, disco’s, rock concerts and so on. Then just drawing the energy close to you and let your body feed. Trusting my vampiric nature to deal with the after effects. Which wasn’t always too nice. Again the energy isn’t very clean. 

Unfiltered feeding has side effects! You also feed on the emotions of people and just ask the average empath how “fun” that can be. I remember feeding at my local disco, venting wide open and feeling all that emotions and energy pour through me. Almost like a drug high. I loved it! 

Young vampires ought to first get a handle on basic feeding methods, the experiences they get from such and learn the ways of energy. Your vampiric energy body can handle quite a bit, but don’t be too crazy. Using shields as filters will help a lot with getter a handle on a healthy way to feed. 

Shielding and Filtering

One of the first steps going from unprotected feeding to protected is by using shielding. You will the energy to do something. In this specific case to envelop you and only allow certain energies through. Shielding itself is quite the topic, how to do it and how to make it efficient. There are many layers to it, I know bad joke! 

But think of it in the most basic terms as standing in a see through ball. And you can adjust just what can pass and what can’t pass. Apply your understanding what you want to feed off and what not and adjust the shield to such. Then draw the energy into you. What happens is that the shield will bounce off the energy you don’t desire.

To theoretical? Lets say that someone in your house is fighting. You don’t choose your own family after all! What if you could use a shield to stop the negative emotions and pain from coming into your energy zone? What if you could will the bad energy to stay out of your room? Empath’s approve of that! Now apply that filter instead into use of feeding. 

Theory into Practice

So you are in an American shopping mall, great area to feed in most situations. A lot of people passing through, leaving their energy behind. A lot of slowness too as many hang around for quite a while with all the little shops and things there are too do. There is a lot of energy. Free unclaimed energy. For me this would be the train station, I don’t mind hanging around there for 25 minutes in a busy station. 

In short FREE energy. Thrown away, nobody has a claim on it anymore, just waiting to slowly be absorbed by earth. In short, dinner!

So there you are, just visiting, hanging out on a seat watching the people pass as you draw that energy to you. Now I hope that you are willing to put up some filtering as the energy is dirty, very dirty. But you draw that energy too you and let your nature do the rest, drawing that energy into you. Your tendrils, extensions of your energy body, can be used to guide the drawing of energy. You can use tendrils to feel the energy of the area and guide it down to you. Take your time, feed as slow or quick as make sense and enjoy the view. You might notice that your energy sensitivity goes pretty wild as you now connect with the ambient energy around you. You might see energy where most people see dullness. 

Again take it slowly and just feed, relax, trust your vampirism to be smart enough but keep an eye out. Dirty energy means it will have to burn it off. For instance burn off emotions, you might feel hyper after a good fed for a short while. 

Now after feeding take good care of yourself good. Burn off what is too much or has to get out and give yourself at least one day to heal up. 

Word Meanings

Tendrils; part of the vampires energy system, they can be moved around at the will of the vampire. Energy Sensitives might see them as “weird hairs” on the aura at rest. They can elongate and reach many places and far. Are sensitive and give you insight into the energy of the area. 

Astral; A realm of energy where time and space work very different and things can connect. 

Energy Signature; Everything alive has an energy signature. It is like your passport in many ways. The key to find you and connect to you.

Shield; much as expected a wall between you and something else. In the feeding case one that lets certain things through and keeps other things out.

Empath; Someone who feels the feelings of the others too. Meaning they are never to sure if what they feel is theirs or someone else feelings!

Walking on a Knives Edge

Author: Masticina Akicta

Walking on a Knifes Edge

This is written more then a year into the Covid situation. Covid has changed a lot, many places one could go before to find a lot of energy freely laying around are closed. Even lesser options are much harder these days. The once in a while travel by train isn’t doing to push me above surviving to midrange levels. And with that I am luckier then many others.

Nature can feed, yes but never seems to come up to the level human energy gets me.

I am lucky that train travel still is allowed in my country and train stations are usually capable to retain some energy. In Europe we use trains more. In some countries it is very common for people to use the train to go to their jobs, of school, or university. The thing is with schools shutting down, jobs limiting the amount of people that can show up and universities only opening up a little. The good times are over! Sure they are slowly opening but the big herds of people walking through train stations doesn’t happens as much as before.

As a psy-vampire I can go to a train station, draw energy through a filtering and cleaning system and get out life energy. Some call it bottom-feeding, but I am quite pride on the ways I have worked to long term be able to feed without needing direct donors. And with adjustments living like that is doable. I rather go to a club or a big event but hey gotta take what is given right? 

And then Covid came, no more clubs, no more big places where a lot of people get together and even though travel has opened up again and I can feed once in a while. Even train stations are not in the level to really feed m e up to the point I could easily before Covid. 

Some weeks I am on a knives edge, that hunger always in my mind. And making my tongue a bit sharper then I hope to have. I really don’t like to piss off other people. Not more then they deserve! 

Surviving not Thriving

I know my situation is better then some other vampires, after all blood and donors are much harder to find and get too. Many of us are stuck surviving, not thriving, some of us deep bouncing against the lowest levels we have been in a while. And yes even I with all the methods I have can’t find enough resources. Or at least not to the level that makes me thrive. 

Edging on that ever hunger, seeing the tank getting emptier and knowing that you are easier to topple or end up making rough mistakes. A thin skin, emotional less stable and sharper of tongue. It is surviving, not thriving. Also less fed our energy shifts and some people being to notice. Luckily I have a few tricks but yeah I wish I had fed better and hence more stable energy to do more stuff. 


I think many of us know solutions that work for us. Sang’s have sources of blood, not the best choice and harder to get but there are certain 3rd options. A donor still is the best and getting that donor to you or being able to travel to them is going to be the only long term solution.

For psy-vampires having more then just human energy as sources is one way. Yes, munching trees, I know it isn’t what you want. But you survive… just not thrive. 

And me? The few train trips I still can take are my source for the human one… the rest is the vegan diet. 


The future seems simple, vaccinations and getting the Covid virus down. That opens up access to things again, travel and that also means food for psy-vampires and donors for everybody.

I get it, vaccinations, ergh. But it seems the science behind it is solid enough and in areas that vaccinate a lot the spread is a lot slower. Nothing is 100% in life as they say. But one thing is sure, we have some weapons against this virus. And we have potential to open up certain things again for our needs.

Safely Releasing Tension

Author: Masticina Akicta

Date: 25 March 2021

Emotional and Energy Overloads

We life in a world in what we are expected to behave certain ways, act certain ways and follow certain rules. We are told to behave, expected to behave and “othered” when we don’t. How many haven’t been pushed out of accepted society because they were too different?  

Yet we are human, and nobody is perfect. Energy and emotions build up, many of us can’t easily find others to talk to about emotional issues or other issues. Our society expects us to be strong and able to walk on our own. And it is the question if you got a partner if they are going to take the role of listening ear. 

This leads to heavy builds up in the end which can lead to some really explosive behaviors. Which lead to even more eyes looking at us and fingers pointing at us. 

The question is how to release that all safely. Because if you can’t release the energy somewhere it can easily lead to blockages and rising tension. Which breaks! Usually violent.

 Lets talk about Volcanos! You’ll understand why I go into this soon enough.


I am not sure if you were the kid in school that loved learning, or you were bored and do other things but Vulcanos are points in the earth where magma from below cause a lot of tension. At times it breaks through the thin skin the earth has and causes a releases. Much like a pimple, vulcanos always have been around ever since this little ball of matter formed and clumped together. 

There is always tension in earth as long as there is heat in the core and with moving tracts of landplates vulcanos will always show up.

My question to you; what kind of vulcano are you? One that builds up till it explodes violently or one that has pressure releases?

Humans also can store a lot of tension much like a battery. They go through their days, shit happens, they worry about things. They are not sure how they can talk to and then just as the pressure is very high…something bad happens and BOOM you explode. It usually isn’t even the fault of the last person to talk to you but… it just happened. It was the last bit of pressure needed to make it happen.

This happens to everybody! Babies can cry if they need something or are unhappy, and once grown up you have to release the tension better and explain your disagreements in a more fitting matter. Being a grown up sucks right. Being responsible for your actions doesn’t always mean your emotions agree with the rest of the expectations.

A healthy mental way to deal with such is to release some of such tension on way or another in something. Usually suggested is someone to talk to, who is willing to listen without judging. Or find something like sport to pour that energy out into.

Vesuvius versus Hawaii

I talk about two different main vulcanos here. Vesuvius is the vulcano that builds up, and up, to explode quickly and sharply with a lot of force. It can be silent for a long while and hence dangerous. You could trust that all is fine, but underwhile the last bit of pressure is building up till the big boom. Even you can’t say when it breaks. Just that it is close to exploding.

The second type of volcano is the the ones you see on Hawai. They are always going off and release a steady flow of lava out. But this also means that they are known, well monitored and due to the release of tension huge eruptions don’t happen as much. 

The danger you don’t see is the most dangerous after all. 

There are also super volcanoes but that is a whole different ball game. The type you get when a marriage with a terrible choice of mate finally breaks and all the negative feelings in one flow break out. Ouch! 


Of course one way to deal with problems is to deal with the cause. Sometimes we can’t really or require help from others too. Sometimes it means stopping meeting certain people or finding other work, if possible. Sometimes it means dealing with a nasty past that still shadows you. 

And sometimes it is just a lot of factors that on itself wouldn’t cause trouble too much ending up on the same few days. We can’t always clear up with a cause, but if we try to fix a few of those underway things improve a lot. And I don’t say it is easy because some times there are huge issues that take years to heal. Release of the energy is the first part though. Draining out the energy to allow healing.

On a more average level new work, issues at work, money issues, kids sick etc can lead to a lot of pressure building up. Little things that all together are too much. 

Safe and Healthy ways to get rid of energy

Much energy can be rid off through guided release of it through actions, like running, boxing and other activities. Some of us make paintings filled with our emotions or write words. Emotions are like pressure in this situation they have to go somewhere. When musicians go through bad times they make sad songs. When they explode their songs are raw like mothers little explosions.

Metal is a healthy form of music, it is full of emotion and sometimes positive too. But usually very raw and strong. It is one of those places where you can yell and bang your head and feel so good after such. A metalsingers scream is very close to a baby using its one and only method to be noticed. 

Of course, there are always the people who are there to listen to you and who are trained guide you through releasing such and thinking about things. Trained to listen and put 1+1 they can guide you into dealing with the underlying issues. But many things are just normal daily rising tensions and issues. Which can’t be talked away. But have to be taken out another way.

It is healthy to keep draining rising pressures one way or another. And taking care of yourself also means taking time to mentally release energy. So it won’t explode in the worst of moments. Think after a busy week do a sport activity that you can push most of that energy into. You’ll feel much better and the energy has been used well. 

Personally I am well self-trained with grounding so I can ground myself, areas, or others. 

And I can see how rebirthing retreats and other strange sounding things make sense for the Japanese society. A very closed off and expecting society in what one has to be subservant to the system. Having an own Identity is bad there. Ah, so much rising tension. Hence the drinking! 

I am sure you have some ideas how to deal with tension, pressure and sometimes deep laying pains. What matters is making sure it doesn’t crawls upon you and you explode. Healthy regular tension release is good for everybody.
