I've hit a ceiling with what I can do, energy-wise. I'm in need of a few exercises or ideas to help me improve. I believe I've covered most of the "basics"; raising, shielding, throwing it at people (and I mean that in the best of ways), grounding, and pretty accurately moving it around my body.

Diana Paxson's book _Trance-portation_ has some of the better exercises I've seen.

Other things to try:
- drawing energy from and grounding energy into different physical elements (a tree, a rock, running water, a lake, a bit of earth, a fire, a breeze, a piece of music, a piece of art, etc.)

- working with other people (which, really, is energy 201 in a lot of ways, because you have to negotiate the difference between their perceptions of energy and yours, which tends to hone your skills fast.) This can be energy exercises, or it can be ritual work where multiple people are combining their energies.

- trying different approaches: for example, if you normally base your shields on a visual mode, try something kinesthetic, or audio based. If you normally do big-bulky-study, try doing something more delicate and subtle. Basically, expand your range of options. (Reading fiction where magic is a part of the world is actually a good way to get some ideas here about general approaches/things to try.)
