My shielding tendencies shift from soft and light to heavy and electric, based on my level of fear or sensing negative energies.
When I am simply putting up a barrier for myself to feel comfortable, it is merely a bubble. Soft white and powder blue, translucent and with rainbow shimmers and sparkles all over it. I literally envision a soap bubble surrounding me, with all of its beautiful light retractions shimmering off of it. This shield is meant for everyday use, travel, protecting children, relaxation, and general uses.
If I sense something I fear or feel a bad vibe around me, my shield becomes much denser with energy. It resembles a Plasma Globe, but it surrounds my entire body, with my body being the energy conductor in the center. I only bring this out when I am threatened or in a ‘fight or flight’ mode. This is only used when the negative energies I sense will not go away on their own accord after politely asking for them to leave me alone. This shield is bright and electric, covered in sparks, with lightning-like energy bursts crawling around the rainbow colored sphere.
How I make it happen? Lots of practiced focus. Over time your brain will naturally focus on that sphere the second you subconsciously feel a threat or are even slightly uncomfortable. If you focus on creating your own sphere every day, and create one every time you remember to do so, it is like muscle memory. It will become instinctive. Practice is the only way to make this happen! It won’t just happen if you don’t practice, then you run the risk of leaving yourself vulnerable.
Remember, no one may ever notice you have put a protective bubble around yourself. Making them does not hurt anyone around you, or at least it shouldn’t! If it does start to effect someone next to you then maybe you should re-evaluate the relationship (if you two do have a relationship of some kind). Think about it, if you put up a protective barrier around yourself, not allowing any negativity to enter or come near. Then a friend of yours suddenly gets upset or angry seemingly out of nowhere, maybe your friend doesn’t have your best interests in mind. Is that friendship toxic? Maybe one-sided? Now, if you do put it up and the people you are standing next become relaxed, then you have nothing to worry about. That would mean that you choose your friends wisely and they genuinely care about you.
If you have trouble creating a shield you could always repeat something in your head over and over. For example, repeat something like this; “I am safe. I am safe. I keep myself safe. I am safe.” That will help you stay on track and keep the focus on protection. Shields have to come from within you. If you must ask a higher power for help, I would suggest asking them to give you the strength to protect yourself. The shield is energy flowing through, and from, you. Without you there is no shield, you are important and always worth protecting.
Have faith in yourself. You can always protect you; never tolerate disrespect and mistreatment of your energies. Knowing these things will give you the power to create the shield around yourself. You must train your brain to have faith in your abilities to stop negativity. Repeat the saying repeatedly and over time it will stick. It may take 3 months or it may take 3 years, but keep it up! One day you will experience negativity happening around you and will catch yourself putting a stop to it.
Having faith in yourself will make you stand up and have the confidence to say, “Stop. I don’t like this.” Practices like this will transcend throughout your entire life. Soon you will find people treating you with more respect and asking for your advice. Positive things will naturally pull into your life without resistance. There may be others that try to push you down and make you feel lesser with ever step you take towards self-realization. Those are the people that have taken advantage of you and don’t like the confidence you are showing. Keep pushing ahead! This is your life and you are taking it back! “I am safe and I keep myself safe!”
Go with light and love.
