Generally I don’t use shielding. Since we are all one what is the point of shielding from another.
At the same time, I have shielded. I have shielded in a an environment that feels bad to me and around another who feels “sticky”. I think they feel “sticky” because what they got I have a sense may stick to my field.
My understanding is a shield works through your intention and attention. As long as you keep your attention on the shield it will say up. If your attention inadvertently comes off your shield it will come down and with it all the goodies lodged in the outer layers can come into your field. So what you were trying to protect yourself from then becomes yours.
Here are some tips for effective shielding:
1. Make your shield out of several materials with different properties: gold, silver, glass, rainbows, light, etc so the shield is impenetrable.
2. Keep your attention on your shield to keep it up.
2. When you take your shield down do it with intention. Thank it and send it to God with all the stuff it has collected.
