im trying to make a streaming life force effect running from one actors mouth to the other in particular yet i cant seem to make the particles flow to one point and die at that point. i tried doing this with the direction setting but its very hard to animate where the direction is and i can only seem to animate the Y axis and when i try to animate the X axis all it does is rotate like the Z axis please help.

Use more than just Particular. You could use the puppet tool (as this tutorial shows) or if that's not quite what you want, Bezier Warp, or some other distort tool might do it.
Here's a tutorial on creating a life force type thing that you might also find useful.
