Why should you shield and/or ground?
Good question, any energy worker will notice quickly enough that this world is full of energies, good ones, and bad ones. And the human world we are stuck in has a lot of bad energy to offer. Isn’t it nice to walk out there in the forests, on the beach, or even just in the park? Away from the busy streets and suffocating roads. Where little green lives and if it shows up it is killed? Yeah right. Cities do that, there is more pollution to cities than just what you can see, but also what you can feel. Though must say, it also has a lot of lovely places full of free energy.
Sometimes you enter a room and feel directly that something is wrong, just to learn that someone died. That is energy affecting you. It is the reason football games, concerts and public transport has its own “taste” to it. It gathers energy and that includes good and bad energy. It is the reason certain churches make sure you wait long for the main course so the energy is there for them to offer a “spiritual” experience. It is how groupthink works and how people can influence and connect with each other.
Shielding can offer you a whole lot of things to help your own life and those around you. So can basic grounding methods, a room that is high on energy and a fight might happen can be aided by a ground-wire. Shielding can aid you against negative energy and people trying to sway you.
So, you got it? Shielding and Grounding isn’t just fun and games. There is a deeper reason behind it all. If you can work with energy you better learn to protect yourself.
After showering or taking a bath you pull the plug and all the water goes down. You should feel better too, cleaner in so many different ways. That is grounding, connecting to the earth and letting all the overcharge, extra energy go right down. You can visualize it as a tree-root growing from the earth to where you are. Or where you want to earth because you can also earth others and places. One of the great uses of earthing is to lower energy in an overcharged situation. When a fight is about to break out to draw the over energy away from the situation.
But also it is great when you work in an office and share those meeting rooms to cleanse the energy of the worst muck once it is your teams time to go there. But lets first talk about YOU!
You feel rotten, chaotic, not yourself, something is wrong. After a day of work you just feel F-ed up. Your boss was a jerk again, your co-workers not much better and the weather sucked. Or you are at school and there is something foul in the air, muddled nasty energy you gotta walk through.
This is where you can use a good cleanse yourself! So jump in the shower and, that isn’t a bad idea. But lets say you are traveling, busy, had a hard or boring lecture and just need to get some clean good energy back. Grounding will at least get the nasty stuff away from you.
This is for energy users and manipulators a required skill. And many probably have some very basic inborn abilities waiting. But still let's go over the basics. It can help you feel healthier, safer and deal with what life throws at you.
A shield is like wearing a full body condom. Less sexual terms would be envisioning yourself in a ball of energy and said ball only lets certain energy through and bounces off energy off. These energy constructs require energy to be created and training because energy works is like muscles you need to train to get better at it. So at first you only can keep your bubble up for a short time but as you practice it gets longer and longer.
Now if this is your first time sit down, try to relax and envision a con… see through ball around you. Feel the energy and visualize it blocking out energy you don’t want in. Test it out in places where you normally feel others energy. For instance shopping malls or busy public transit places. Maybe you are in school, or in university or at a job place. And the energy can be not the best. Basic shielding will help you survive the storm, just remember that swaying trees survive the longest. Energy has to go somewhere, you need to get rid of it too.
Train regular and in time your ability to keep it up and adapt it even in harder situations gets easier, to the point that it will take very bad energy or a strong mind to penetrate it. Even a simple shield can be a message to some.
Visualize that a tree root grows from the ground and into you. Also, it is a great thing to walk grounded, aka outside without shoes. It sounds silly but contact with earth will help you. Wearing shoes puts a barrier between us and the earth.
Just remember one thing, the earth is very slow energy. And in certain situations, you need to be fired up, quick on your feed or super caring and passionate. And earth, in that case, might draw too much energy down. So you don’t always have to be earthed. Sometimes it is better to follow the rising energy. To at the end earth and return to rest again. But always know you can draw up an earth wire and slow down again.
As you progress in your energy workings you can keep track of how you feel and what you did to help yourself out of such situation. You’ll find that shielding and grounding as some of the most basic tools an energy user must be able to handle. There are other tools out there for other situations. There are times when you need to dig deeper. But for the basics you can use these two handy tools to keep yourself in balance.
Tips and Tricks
Self Feeding Shield
After you learned how to shield, why not hook up the shield through a smart system to feed from the energy it blocks. That way it is cheaper to keep up. And this also leads to the beginning of trick shielding. But first you need to know the basics.
Combining Shielding and Grounding
A little thing you can do is to adjust your shield to drain the energy through the earth wire you create. Just be sure the earthing doesn’t annul your shielding. It is tricky I know it. But a combined earth/ground can eat up the bad incoming energy.
Mirror Shield/Bouncy Shield
I am rubber and you are glue, just send the energy back to its source. If the energy is an attack on you, why not bounce it back?
This is a highly advanced shield method in what you adjust the outer layer on the shield to be the same as the surrounding energy, for this of course you require a multi layered shield with “feelers” sticking out. It goes by many names and is one of the party tricks many vampires learn. We can just slide of the radar. Did you know that everybody, yes everybody is sensitive to energy to a certain point. Now you know! By adjusting your energy profile you just fall away.
A rapid adjusting shield that is about impossible to track what the hell is going to do. I hardly use this but it is a method to break links or disrupt connections.
You can ground others, and you can shield others too. Same systems apply, you can shield someone you love for instance.
