Shielding (I believe by Crystal Moonrayne)
Begin drawing energy into your body. Let it begin to build in your abdominal area. This is where your energy and strength begin to build.
Form a ball of pure light, energy and strength at the core of your body.
Slowly let the ball expand.
As the ball expands, begin to see it as a bubble or hollow sphere with you on the inside.
Let the energy from the earth flow through you and into the shield as it expands.
Let the sphere penetrate the ground beneath you, cover the air above and to all sides of you. You are protected in the center of this bubble. The bubble is incredibly strong. Your roots should either be growing through or from the shield.
The energy and strength you felt when you Grounded and Centered can now be used as an inexhaustible source of power for your shield. You can keep your shield up as long as you like without much effort. You are protected and safe.
If your roots grow through the shield, you must allow the energies of your shield to constantly flow.
Energies should flow around the shield and down the outside of the roots.
The roots should disperse the negative energy outward from the lower edges of the roots into the Earth
Positive energy should flow up from the earth into the tip of the root, away from where the negative energy is being dispersed
The positive energy will rise up into your body to replace the energies you are putting into your shield.
Make your shield personal.
Make the bubble any material or color you want.
Your shield can be as thick or thin as you desire.
It can be solid like a wall, or it can constantly flow like water.
With practice, when you feel the need to raise your shields, you will be able to do so almost instantly.
Your shield should seldom be static. A well balanced shield will be in constant motion, taking negativity to your roots and guiding it into the earth.
While shielding is a good measure to use whenever it feels you are likely to be in a threatening or negative situation, it is not always necessary or desirable to keep shielded at all times. In order to interact intimately with another, it is sometimes necessary to drop your shields in part (or completely). The important thing is to know that you can raise your shields in an instant if you feel the need. The power and control are yours.
Certain stones and symbols have the ability to enhance your personal energies. You should not use these items if they don't "speak" to you; the power of magic has as much to do with you as with the items you use. When choosing stones, symbols, or other magical enhancements, you should always trust your own intuition about whether or not it will work.
