This is an article that was written to be read more than once. I realise that my advice regarding mental discipline will fall on deaf ears with some readers, but I suppose that is to be expected. After all, I certainly ignored similar advice when I first set my feet on the psionic path. It was only later, and through other studies, that I learned the value of a clear and disciplined mind. I hope that the reader won’t fall into this trap.
Entire articles have been written on the related subjects of shields and filters. Having already discussed construct creation, we can skip the process of creation and look at what makes a good shield or filter, and why.

Exercise: charging hand Time Per Set: 3 minutes Number of Sets: 5 per day Notes: non-dominant
Exercise: arching Time Per Set: 5 minutes Number of Sets: 5 per day Notes: Placing both hands facing it other, about six inches apart. Charge the dominant hand. Imagine that energy jumping from the dominant hand to the other.

Thoughtforms are, as I mentioned in the beginning of this article, rather similar to constructs. The terms “construct” and “thoughtform” have been used interchangeably in some circles, but the definition usually accepted is that thoughtforms are unintentionally created, whereas constructs are created with intent, and with purpose. The notion of accidentally popping out energetic creations may seem strange, so I’ll explain with an example.
Now that you have a functional construct to play with, we can move on to one of the more interesting things about constructs; how they are put together. This is a largely visual exercise, which leads me to re-state my warning from earlier: how you see things in the energetic has nothing to do with your physical eyes. By attempting to perceive a construct visually you are signalling to your mind that you want a visual representation of a non-visual phenomenon. Your mind will happily oblige, but you must understand from the outset that what you see will very likely be far from literal, and
“Shelling” is commonly taught as an important part of many tutorials on construct creation. I’ve omitted all mention of it for a very good reason; using this method, it isn’t necessary. For the sake of clarity, I’ll explain.
The method of construct creation I’ve described is different to that commonly taught and used in many circles. The “normal” method goes something like this:
The energetic body, or subtle body, has been described by some as the framework upon which the physical body exists. I prefer to think of it as an essential part of the totality of a living being. Just as our physical bodies exist in and interact with the physical “layer” of reality, the subtle body exists in and interacts with the subtle layers. We describe reality as having layers as a means of classification only, so as to separate things out and make them more easily understood. Your physical and subtle bodies occupy the same space. Studying the energetic body is a good introductio
