One of the simplest forms of shielding is what's called a "mirror shield" or a "return-to-sender shield". Quite simply, you visualize that you and your individual family members, are each encased within an egg-shaped, reflective shell of light that acts as a mirror. The mirror shield reflects back-to-the-sender any negative energies that are sent in your
Spend several minutes with this visualization so that you have a firm mental image of your own mirror shield and that of the family members you wish to protect. Until the danger passes, I suggest that you repeat this visualization-of-several-minutes, once a day at the same time each day. And take a moment to visualize your mirror shields whenever you feel the need for an extra boost of protection or when your mind is drawn to think of your shield, your family members or the threatening situation.
I also suggest that you burn some Frankincense and some Sage to clear your house of any unwanted, unwholesome influences.
And finally, I suggest that you find a small piece of quartz crystal or a small stone of some other sort that is special to you. It will need to be something that will ride comfortably in your pocket. Once you've chosen your stone, hold it in your right hand and close your eyes. Imagine that you are an ancient and grand tree. Your trunk is immense with age and your branches spread far and wide into the sky above. Now focus upon your roots which likewise spread far and wide into the soil below. Feel your connection to earth and sky -- you are rooted in both the above and the below. Now draw energy up from the core of the earth, through your roots, through the soles of your feet and the palm of your left hand, and make it converge upon the stone cradled in your right hand. Focus all of the energy you've raised from the earth's core, into this stone. Now let go of your roots and focus just upon the stone in your right hand. See and feel the earth energy it contains! Now put it in your pocket and forget about it.
Whenever you feel that you are being negatively influenced, take your stone into your hands and feel the earth energy it contains. Think also of your reflective mirror shield and visualize that it is reflecting back anything being sent in your direction. Once this visualization is firm and you feel protected, send all of the negativity trapped *within* your egg-shaped mirror shield, down into the earth through the stone in your hand. This will "ground" and diffuse any negativity that you absorbed.
My best to you,
