Hello all. You guys and gals can call me Kev. I've studied psionic techniques for a while, but some new situations have arisen in my personal life that make practicing some techniques, especially defensive techniques, seem advantageous. Since I like to bounce ideas and glean insight from others, I thought it might be a good idea to join a community so I could learn from others, and get some critiques on my work.
I've got a few questions. I know that a lot of beginners ask stupid questions, but don't worry, I'm not going to ask how to create a death-construct or a psi-sword or anything ridiculous. First, in your opinion how long would it take to maintain a basic, sturdy, dependable shield with around thirty minutes to an hours practice each day? I'm not talking anything unbelievably fancy, just something that would impede an incoming telepathic assault or directed negative psi. Second, would it be ethical to set up a defensive perimeter around my home to cannibalize incoming psi to maintain itself?
I ask these questions because I have a feeling that I'm about to come under attack by a couple of punks living in my city that unfortunately do have a bit of ability, and I'd like to be able to defend myself if possible.
