Navigating Predator Energy: An Essential Guide for Empaths

To my empaths and highly sensitive beauties ❤ ️...

It’s important to remember that not everyone may understand or respect your need for boundaries. Some individuals may exhibit what can be described as predatory behaviours, which often reflect a desire for control rather than mutual respect and empowerment.

Understanding predator energy

This “predator energy” can be associated with individuals who display traits associated with personality disorders, such as antisocial, borderline, histrionic, and narcissistic personality disorders. While it's not appropriate to diagnose someone without professional training, being aware of these traits—which are thought to be present in around 9.1% of the population—can be beneficial for your mental health and safety.

In her book, Women Who Run With The Wolves, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés discusses how individuals exhibiting predator energy may use others to alleviate deep feelings of loneliness.

While these individuals deserve empathy, your primary responsibility is to protect yourself from potential harm.

How to identify predator energy

Here are some signs of predator energy/predatory behaviour to watch for.

Do they:

  • Create a false sense of urgency to coerce you into immediate action.
  • Perform kind acts with the expectation of something in return.
  • Gaslight or make you doubt your thoughts and feelings.
  • Ignore or undermine your needs.
  • Have hidden motives that may be harmful to you.
  • Persist even after you say no.
  • Try to involve you in unwanted activities.
  • Disregard your privacy.
  • Use others to communicate with you indirectly.
  • Avoid confrontation with you.
  • Deliberately push your boundaries to destabilize you.
  • Be dishonest about their intentions and feelings.

Protecting your mental space

If you recognize these behaviours, it's crucial to affirm your autonomy. Remember to stay connected to your body and don't ignore what it is saying. Often, what is required is completely removing yourself from that relationship for the time being, even when it is someone you serve. Your sensitivity and your commitment to being of service and sharing your gifts with the world demand that you steer clear of people with this type of attitude.

Empathy at a distance

You can have embodied empathy and compassion for them, but you must do this at a distance.

When predator energy is present, no amount of attention, love, and conversation will make the person able or willing to respect your need for space and growth.

It is not your responsibility to make them feel good or understand why you are doing what you are doing.

More often than not, a break is needed. Give yourself a few months away from that person and you will see how your perspective will expand, including your ability to see more clearly.
