How to protect yourself from the emotions of other people - Shielding Technique

By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.

What is shielding?

When was the last time you sat with a sad person and ended up feeling sad?
When was the last time your emotions changed just because you was with a person who feels bad?

Shielding is the method you can use to protect yourself from experiencing unwanted emotions that are transferred to you by others. In my last article about empathy I pointed out that you can feel bad by just sitting near someone who feels bad.

If you were to find a method to shield yourself from these emotions you will only feel down when you are really down and not because someone beside you is not in the mood. This method of protection is known as shielding and it provides you with a way to filter the emotions coming to you from others.

Shielding Technique

Do you know why do you see strange symbols in your dreams?

It's Because your subconscious mind works by using symbols and images and that's why we are going to use symbols to communicate with it.

If You want to tell your subconscious mind to stop receiving the bad feelings that others send then you must decode this message into a symbol that your subconscious mind can understand. While your subconscious mind might not respond to a direct order it can certainly respond to the messages encoded in a way that it understands.

By visualizing an imaginary shield surrounding your body your subconscious mind is likely to start preventing these emotions from being received. Do you know why this works?

It's Because your subconscious mind treats these images as commands sent to it. This is why it will start to act based on these images you are sending as if they were orders.

Visualization is a wonderful method to program the mind because the subconscious mind sets a new goal whenever you present it with an image. For example right before you feel like wanting to eat a delicious cake most probably you will discover that you have visualized it first.

The image of the cake was treated by the subconscious mind as if it's an order and that's why you became motivated to eat the cake. see subconscious mind rules

Shielding effect

Some people start to feel better as soon as they start visualizing that shield and usually this happens because they were loaded with many emotions that they were not responsible for.

Emotionally sensitive people are the ones who experience these unwanted emotions the most because of their high emphatic abilities. This means that many of the bad feelings you might be experiencing right now might actually be coming from different people and not from within you.

Being able to shield yourself from such emotions can certainly provide you with better self understanding insights because you will be able to recognize your own emotions in a better way.

Whenever you feel down without finding a real reason try to visualize that shield and see if these emotions belong to you or whether they are just emotions coming from other people.
