Merry meet all,
I have reviewed my posts and realized something. I have never truly and deeply explained how shielding is done. The other posts explain using tools. This time, you simply sit and meditate. Yup the only tool, the most powerful tool is your mind. So get a coffee and sit back down here.
Now get comfortable at your altar or wherever you are seated. Close your eyes and quiet your mind. Take a deep breath each for mind, body and spirit. Concentrate on creating in your mind a shield around yourself. Visualize a shield around yourself. Imagine it around your whole body from the top of your head to your toes. Imagine it expanding around you, blocking out anything else. Imagine it growing in light and form. You may at this point discover you are tingling. That means it is working. It can be any color, light or texture. It can be in layers. Imagine the shield can expand away from your body, is in your body and protects you. The shield can be any form you choose. That can range from a beehive to a sphere of light or a sparkly white aura. Try to concentrate on a clear bright aura to repel the unwanted energies. See in your mind your shielding radiating around your body and glowing and indeed shielding you. Now if you practice this, you will get better at it and repel bad energies. You will feel more confident. This can be googled. There are meditations online to follow.
Remember to be grounded- imagining roots coming from your feet or root chakra into the earth. The roots draw up energy and that connects you or roots you to the earth. Once you get good at this stuff, you will start to feel different. Only in a good way.
Believe that the shield exists. Faith and believing it exists instead of going half ass about it is the key. Believe it will shield you. Feel the shield around you. If you feel goosebumps, that may be the shield you created. I have envisioned a dragon’s egg around me and a sparkly white aura. The aura expands around me. It radiates so much light nothing dark could affect it. This is the point of shielding.
Practice shielding regularly. When you get good at that, then try adding textures and layers to the shield. You can color each layer of your aura depending on your intention. Pink and white are good, but darker colors can be used, depending on your intention. If you have a situation coming up, that makes you feel upset, then try a shield with a thicker texture and darker color. The situation you are in can help determine what type of shield you need. If your boss at work upsets you, then try a thick dark shield. Bear in mind we are all responsible for our own energy too. Make sure you have a clear intention for a shield because it can backfire if you are not careful.
You can even lock a shield onto an object. For example, keys, a diary you want to keep away from prying eyes, your wallet- to attract riches!. It can be anything. The shield can be anything you want it to be. It should be what works for you. Also if you are at work, and your colleagues try to one up themselves around you, seriously try this trick. Put an open jar or glass of water on your desk. It will absorb the negativity from them. They don’t need to know what the water is there for.
A shield can defend you from unwanted nasty otherworldly entities. You are truly empowered when you can shield yourself. The shield deflects them and angers them. They can’t feed off you if they can’t get to you. That is what you want. It’s like you taste bad. Insects defend themselves by tasting bad to other predatory insects. This is the same idea. I have spirits around me but they don’t succeed in feeding off of me or hanging around. I can really deflect their energy. If you continue to practice how to shield, then you will get good at it. You will be empowered. It is harder for anything to mess with you. They find someone else to feed off of once they can’t get what they want from you.
Again, sit and meditate with your eyes closed. Do the deep breathing, concentrating and visualizing again. Concentrate on a shield around yourself. A shield is not a physical matter. It is what you meditate on but a shield can still be effective. See the shield around you deflecting the entity. It will back off because you are sending a message to it for it to back off. Keep the image of the shield in your mind. A shield is a barrier around you. Now it is up to you for how long you keep the shield you. But you won’t live in fear, you will be strengthened. White light is as powerful as black. If you want to deflect, and still use a black shield, then use it with care. If they are trying to feed off of you, they have enough of their own dark energy and don’t need more from you. Once you start shielding yourself, you have to maintain it.
I hope this posts helps my readers understand shielding and why shielding is important. I have mixed feelings about whether witchcraft should be elite or not. I think everyone should know about shielding. It is so helpful and so is grounding and centering. I think this information should be shared with muggles. Empowerment is a good thing! So why not let others know right? How are you going to practice and know how to protect yourselves unless you know this stuff? That is how I look at it.
