I like your videos, don't get me wrong. But the problem is that you said "Decepticons" as the soul suckers in Harry Potter. They are actually called "Dementors". I just wanted to let you know.

When I put the "Energy Comp" on Screen Mode I can barely see it, it's very light blue and i only see the very wide line. Why is that?

You are using a newer version of AE. Just activate the motion blur for the layer and the comp.

I used to cry to because Andrew Kramer is THE VFX God! It's hard to look at these tutorials while he performs his miracles! I learned that I could pause the video and go back a few seconds until I got the technique right. You can do it! And at night, before you go to bed, be sure to ask Andrew Kramer to bless you with the skills and patience to do his tutorials.
