What energies work for you are often, but not necessarily, related to your astrological elements. For example, I am a Libra, which is an air sign, and by default the easiest shield for me to use is an airy shield.
Elemental shield examples are:
You can also combine the power of elemental shields. For example, earth and fire makes lava, a formidable shield, indeed. Or air and water make a fierce and drowning storm. Be careful though, since (obviously) water can cancel fire (but fire can boil water); air can scatter earth; fire can bake and burn earth (but earth can smother fire); etc.
Other shields worth studying can be found at Chinese Horoscopes. These are from Chinese astrology and the elements added to our traditional Western list are metal (form into anything that works for you -- knives, swords, razor blades) and wood (trees have a tremendous supply of ancient power and will share it if you ask them nicely).
You can really make anything that works for you your shield. Mythical and real animals and beings work nicely as well, such as gryphons, wolves, dragons, eagles, mermaids, lions, banshees the possibilities are endless, really.
What do you want to shield? Are you shielding yourself from general harm, or a specific person / being / force? Do you want a shield that keeps you IN it or others OUT? Do you want to shield an object (like your car) or an area (like your house and the surrounding property)? Each of these is very specific and may need a different kind of shield. For example, dragons make wonderful house shields, fire and the color orange are great for driving in safety (they make you visible so others dont hit you). Your personal element is good for both keeping others energy out of your space and for making your own energy comfortable in it so it doesnt wander around other people (unless you want it to!).
Now that you know what kinds of shields are available to you, you need to learn how to use them. You could do fancy conjuring, but all it really takes is visualization. For the initial shield placement, you need the right atmosphere. Shut out outside noises, turn off the phone, light some candles and incense, whatever makes you comfortable. Sit comfortably and close your eyes. A meditation before you start can really help tremendously. If you like you can go through your ritual of choice to cast a circle, etc., but again, this is entirely up to you. Breathe deeply, and imagine your shield. Each shield comes from above, below, or to the left of you. Elements come from below, colors and birds from above, animals and most mythical creatures from the left you get the picture. Move the image into your solar plexus, breathing deeply the whole time. Feel it getting larger with each breath, slowly encompassing the thing you want to shield. The image really comes from you, it cannot be separated from you. I am saying image but the reality is that it is really there. You are manifesting it by will and intent alone. Continue the visualization until the image becomes solid around the object or yourself. If it is yourself it should surround you completely, as if you are in a giant egg.
Once the shield is up you must do a force of intent (I dont know what else to call it) to keep it there. You can mentally renew it whenever you feel it weaken, or get attacked, or even if its been a little while and you just want it strengthened. To renew it, just close your eyes and imagine it strengthening itself around you. You dont have to go through a whole shield ritual unless you prefer it that way when you are just renewing it.
Shields are one of those things that you must believe in and not doubt, otherwise they will not work at all. Put your faith in them, and they will not fail you! Ive seen near-accidents and violence diverted seemingly miraculously, -- cars about to smash suddenly veer off out of harm's way. Whether you want to be noticed, fade from sight, or just be protected, shields work!
Good luck all!
Eerie America TV Series
Eerie America could very well be called The Fodors Travel Guidebook for The Addams Family. I read some in-depth information about the show and saw the promo, and from what I can tell, this will be an absolutely AWESOME series if they can get it off the ground. (I'm actually praying they will.) Let others know and see who can help. This is something that should happen! Let's pull together and make it so!
