According to lore, a vampire cannot enter your home without an invitation. Putting a spiritual spin on this well-known, mythological rule, Claudia Cunningham pioneers a powerful strategy for dealing with freeloading friends, suffocating spouses, harmful habits, and other "vampires" who drain the heart, mind, and spirit.

This fun, humorous, and indispensable guide, based on spiritual principles the author used to battle dependency - teaches how to cope with toxic relationships and beliefs. Learn how to take personal responsibility for your life and detect vampires with the light of truth. Arm yourself with honesty, humility, and clarity. Practice self-reflection, prayer, and meditation to establish strong boundaries.

With an arsenal of self-knowledge and confidence, you'll be equipped to defeat any Draculas coming your way.
