Vampyres: Skills & Explanations



Skills & Explanations

An Introduction

Vampyres possess many skills and abilities, far more than I have the time or interest to document and write how-tos for. Use of one's abilities initially comes via instinct but will require practice and time to hone into a real skill or useful ability. Much of it is a lot of trial and error, but don't give up. Remember also that a skill is only useful if it is used, and much like brain or muscle tissue, will deteriorate if not used. Our first and most basic skill, and the one the comes naturally to us all is the manipulation of energy. Almost all skills that come after use this first skill at least partly, so it is important to practice this skill and become well versed in it. Energy manipulation is really only just extending your awareness to include your energy and using your mind and thoughts to command it at will. Focus is an essential part of energy manipulation. It is also important that you do not doubt yourself and have confidence in yourself and your abilities or whatever you try will not work, just like with the practice of magic. Below are some skills that include this ability that are pretty simple to do for any Vampyre, regardless of their progress.


Augmentation is essentially using your own energy through the command of your will to go beyond the limitations of your body. Again, focus is important and so is your confidence. Know that you can do this, don't just simply think it. Start by extending your awareness to include your energy and gather it at the center of your being. As you gather this energy pick a specific intent for it, as in running faster, seeing farther, raising your pain tolerance, healing faster, lasting longer in a sports game, etc. Now that you have a specific intent in mind, force the energy through out your body. You have just used augmentation. The more you practice this skill, the longer you will be able implement it. Realize however, that use of this skill as with almost any skill, will increase the 'burn' rate of your energy meaning that you will have to feed more often to replenish yourself.

The Energy Ball

This is exactly what the name implies, a ball of energy. Also known as the chi or ki ball and is quite simple to perform. Begin by placing your hands in front of yourself and cupping them, slightly apart with the palms facing each other. As soon as you do this you should feel energy gathering in the space between your palms. If you push your hands together a little you should be able to feel the energy give slightly while at the same time offering a slight resistance. Using your hands, form the energy into a ball. Know that you can form the energy into whatever shape you desire, but for now I'm keeping it simple in choosing the form of a ball. Now that you have crafted a ball of energy you may charge it with an element, emotion or sensation if you like. You can throw an energy ball at people and most people will react to it, though those who are not sensitive to energies will not understand what it is that struck them unless you choose to charge it will a specific sensation.


You go to bed feeling exhausted. You dream, a rather realistic seeming dream about feeding, perhaps on some one you know. You awaken feeling refreshed and ready to go. You happen to run into the person you dreamed about later in the day, or perhaps they even give you a call. You discover that you both had the same dream and realize that it was more than a dream. The person you fed from may even have marks on their body where you fed from and they are a complete contrast to your energized, happy self. You wonder what this strange experience might be.

For an underfed, energy starved Vampyre this can be a common occurrence. Most Vampyres will experience this at least once in their life. This experience is known as dreamwalking and it is a survival mechanism, a default setting if you will that ensures you get the energy you need one way or another. It is mostly an unconscious process, but it doesn't have to be. You can learn to control it in time and with practice, but if you neglect yourself or for whatever reason are unable to get the energy you require, the survival mechanism will kick in again whether you desire it to or not.

Dreamwalking is a talent largely used by Astral Vampyres. However Astral Vampyres consciously control their dreamwalking, unlike the example given above, which is usually the case for Sangs and Psys. Sangs and Psys can consciously dreamwalk, but rarely do because it is in their nature to obtain energy in other fashions.

Basic Healing

As Vampyres energy manipulation is second nature for us. Though we already have increased healing time when compared to humans, sometimes you just need something to heal faster than usual. Gather some of your energy and send it to the afflicted area. Some people use their hands to channel the energy, do what works for you. Charge that energy with the intent of healing. Visualize your body on the cellular level, will it to send more blood, antibodies and white blood cells to the area. Will your cell growth to increase and visualize the flesh knitting itself back together. If it is a broken bone, visualize the broken ends coming together and knitting. Fill the area of the wound with as much energy as you can spare. Once you have done this and you feel you have accomplished all that you can, gradually decrease the amount of energy you send into the area until the flow finally ceases. This is the simplest, most basic form of healing.

Advanced Healing

Not all things that cause a wound or illness necessarily have a physical cause but are instead something subtle. In this case, expand your awareness to the internal level of the afflicted and seek out the cause. It may appear as a dark area or spot, or just a sensation of perhaps pain or coldness. When you locate it use your energy and hands to pull it out and throw it away. Do not take such energy into yourself as it may cause serious problems for yourself.

There are times when a wound or illness has both a subtle and physical cause. Should this be the case, follow the steps in the paragraph above first before healing it on a physical level. If you were only to heal the physical problem and leave the subtle one, the physical one would eventually resurface.

Filters & Shields

The nature of a Vampyre is to feed on the energy of others, be it through blood, pranic energy, or the energy of dreams. Anyway you look at it there is energy flowing into a Vampyre at almost anytime. Due to this fact, shields do little good for a Vampyre. What sense does it really make to cut oneself off from that which sustains us? Filters make far more sense for our kind. Filters serve the exact purpose that their name implies, to filter out that which is unwanted. Filters can be used in place of a shield, and can be created to filter out whatever you wish. To create a filter begin as you would to create a shield, but instead imagine it to be a screen-like mesh that blocks out what you wish to keep out of yourself while allowing everything else through. Focus on that which you wish to keep out while crafting your filter. Conversely, you can use a filter to only allow in one type of energy while blocking out everything else. In this way when you draw energy from an individual you can use your filter to block out everything except the effect of the intoxicant they are under the influence of. You essentially rob the person of their high while experiencing the effect yourself, without actually having to ingest the intoxicant yourself. Though you can do this from a distance it works best when there is physical contact with the person. Once you have had your fill of the experience you can remove the intoxicant from your system. Look within yourself on the subtle level, find the cause of the intoxication, gather it up and release it outside of your body. If you have actually ingested the intoxicant the above mentioned process will work, but to a lesser degree. You should be able to use your Vampyre to override the rest of the effects.

Shields are often used for protection from attacks but as I mentioned above, being what we are makes a shield not the optimal choice for us. Energy manipulation is second nature for most Vampyres, so in an attack situation we need only use the abilities we already have. Our abilities afford us several options. You can use a filter to strip the attack of the harmful intent, send it back to the sender, drain the attacker or any shields they have, or you can take it into yourself. For the filter option see the above paragraph. The second option involves taking the attack, converting it and sending it back to whom ever sent it to you. If you are unsure from where the attack originated, trace it back to its source as you would a link or tendril of energy. You can then use this link to drain the attacker. You may also drain any shield the attacker has. If you choose the latter you will have to break down the energy yourself, a process that your body normally does on it's own. Just strip it of everything and make it into neutral energy. This all boils down to energy, which is something that we can manipulate.

Colors of the Aura and Common Interpretations

Please keep in mind that these are the common interpretations of the colors, but they are not necessarily set in stone. These colors may have different meanings to you.


Possible Interpretations

Red: The color of strong energy, fire and primal creative force. It is the hot, life-promoting energy. It can indicate strong passion, mind and will. A dynamic color that can reflect anger, love, hate and unexpected changes. It can also indicate new birth and transmutation. It effects the circulatory system of the body, reproductive (sexual energy) and an awakening of latent abilities and talents.

Orange: The color of warmth, creativity and emotions. It can indicate courage, joy and socialness. It can reflect an opening of new awareness (especially in subtle realms, {aka the astral plane} of life). It can also indicate emotional imbalances and agitation, depending on the shade. Muddier shades of orange can mean pride and flamboyance. It can also reflect worry and vanity.

Yellow: One of the easiest colors to see. Pale yellow around the hairline can indicate optimism. It's the color of mental activity and new sunshine. It can reflect new learning opportunities, lightness, wisdom and intellect. The more pastel shades can often reflect an enthusiasm for something in life, the power of ideas and spiritual development(especially in the pale yellow to white spectrum). It can represent the awakening psychic abilities and clairsentience. Deeper and muddier shades can reflect excessive thinking and analyzing. It can reflect being overly critical, feelings of being deprived of recognition and being dogmatic.

Bright greens moving toward the blue spectrum in the aura indicate healing ability. It's a color of abundance, strength and friendliness. The muddier or darker shades can reflect uncertainty and miserliness. The muddier shades often reflect jealously and possessiveness as well. It can indicate self-doubt and mistrust.

Blue: The next easiest color to see in the aura. It's the color of calm and quietness. It reflects devotion, truth and seriousness. It can indicate the ability for clairaudience and for the development of telepathy. The lighter shades reflect an active imagination and good intuition. The deeper shades can indicate a sense of loneliness, which on one level reflects a life-long quest for the Divine. The deeper shades also reflect devotion. Royal blue shades indicate honesty and good judgment. They can also indicate the person has found or is about to find her chosen work. The muddier shades can reflect blocked perceptions, melancholy, rushing and worrying, domineering, fearfulness, forgetfulness and over sensitivity.

Violet and Purple: The color of warmth and transmutation. The color of the bleeding of the heart and the mind, the physical with the spiritual. It reflects independence and intuition, as well as dynamic and important dream activity. It can reflect an ability to handle affairs with practically and worldliness. The paler shades and lighter shades can reflect humility and spirituality. The red-purple shades can indicate great passion or strength of will. They may also reflect a need for greater individual effort. The darker and muddier shades can reflect a need to overcome something. They can also reflect intense erotic imaginations. Tendencies toward being overbearing, needing sympathy and feeling misunderstood are also reflected in muddier shades.

Pink: The color of compassion, love, purity. It can reflect joy and comfort and a strong sense of companionship. It can indicate the quiet, modest type of individual, along with love of art and beauty. It can also reflect immaturity, especially the muddier shades. It can reflect truthfulness or lack of it. It can also reflect times of new love and new vision.

Gold: Reflects dynamic spiritual energy and a true coming into one's own power. It reflects higher energies of devotion and a restoration of harmony. It indicates a times of revitalizing. Muddier shades can indicate the person is still in the process of awakening higher inspiration and has still not clarified it yet within her life. It reflects the alchemical process still being active, i.e. the person is still working to turn the lead of her life into gold.

White: Often seen in the aura prior to any colors. It's often seen as a diaphanous shade. When it does appear in the aura its often in conjunction with other colors. This is how you know whether it is an actual energy color or just a poor perception. When the white does appear it reflects truth and purity. It indicates that the energy of the individual is cleansing and purifying itself. It often reflects an awakening of greater creativity as well.

Gray: The color of initiation. It can indicate movement toward unveiling innate abilities. Those shades of gray that lean more toward the silver reflect an awakening of the feminine energies. These are the energies and abilities of illumination, intuition and creative imagination. The darker shades of gray can indicate physical imbalances, especially if seen next to specific areas of the physical body. They can also indicate a need to leave no task undone. Much gray in the aura can indicate a person who is secretive and who is the lone wolf type.

Brown: Often appears in the aura. Although many think it reflects a lack of energy or an imbalance, this isn't always so. When it is seen in the aura, especially around the head and feet, it can reflect new growth. It indicate establishing new roots and the desire to accomplish. It can reflect industry and organization. But brown across the face or touching the head may indicate a lack of and need for discrimination. If seen in the areas of the chakras can indicate cleaning of those centers are needed. It can indicate a blockage in those areas. It can also reflect problems in the physical, but don't jump to conclusion. Feedback from the person is the best means of understanding it.

Black: One of the most confusing colors in the aura. It's a color of protection. It can shield an individual from outside energies. It can also indicate that a person has secrets. Can also indicate that a new understanding of burdens and sacrifices is going to manifest. It can indicate imbalances. Physical imbalances often appear as black or darken areas in the aura around the physical body. In the outer edges of the aura black can indicate holes or tears in the auric field.

Silver Twinkles: Often appear as soft twinkling lights with in the aura, usually very sparkly and in silver in color. They can mean many things. They are almost always a sign of great creativity and fertility. When they appear in the aura of a person it indicates the creativity is being activated within the individual's life. When seen around women they often indicate fertility and pregnancy. They are always present around women who are pregnant or have delivered a child within the past six to nine months. You must remember though that not every one that has the twinkles is pregnant.

You must remember that when you are observing someone else's aura you are doing so through your own aura. Because of this the colors you observe may not be the actual colors in the person's aura. For instance, if your aura is yellow and the other person's is blue you will see green as the colors of the two auras blend together. Just something to keep in mind.

The information about the colors was compiled from experiences of the author, other individuals and a book called "How to See and Read the Aura" by Ted Andrews.
