If you ever had the sneaky suspicion that a coworker was out to get you, guess what? You might be right. And more importantly, you should watch out because you could find yourself on the receiving end of a psychic attack at work.
Many people have a misunderstanding of what a psychic attack is. Some believe it’s a situation in which someone consciously puts a curse on you. You might envision some voodoo priestess burning a voodoo doll and uttering some mumbo jumbo. But get that dramatic image out of your mind. A psychic attack doesn’t generally happen with that much fanfare. If someone is simply having negative thoughts about you, you could find yourself feeling the effects of a psychic attack. If someone is consciously intending that you experience something harmful, that’s even worse.
At work, this can play out when a co-worker is jealous of you, or if you got a promotion that someone else wanted. It also could play out if someone wants your job or if someone is trying to impress the boss at your expense. Some people even have bosses that dislike them and send negative thoughts their way.
Another thing to note: You don’t even have to be in the same room with someone to be on the receiving end of their psychic attack at work, so the co-worker or colleague could be on the other side of the building and you can find yourself suffering from their psychic attack.
So how do you know if you’re experiencing a psychic attack at work? Pay attention to how you feel when you’re around different co-workers. if you notice that you feel worse whenever you’re around a certain person, trust your intuition and do what you can to stay away. Here are some other signs that you may be under psychic attack.
You may experience confusion. When under psychic attack, it’s common to find it difficult to concentrate on what you’re doing and you may have a difficult time making decisions, particularly when you’re not normally an indecisive person. Obviously, this can be very harmful to you in the workplace.
You may regularly feel drained. Pay attention to your energy level when you’re around different people at work. If you feel a sudden loss of energy around one or physically tired when they are near, as if someone is literally sucking your life force from you, they may be.
You may not feel like yourself. Know your normal. In other words, know how you generally feel when you’re at work. When you find yourself feeling different for an extended period of time and you can’t figure out why, you may be under psychic attack.
You may find yourself beholden to another person. This one can be particularly harmful in the workplace, or anywhere for that matter. If you find yourself trying hard to please someone and that’s not your normal personality style, pay attention to your interactions with that person. If there’s one particular person that you can’t say ‘no’ to, you may be a victim of psychic attack.
