Apparently if you bring your ball of energy over your heart and such their is a possibility of stopping your heart with it lol.... so I am little nervous haha.
I think this is highly *highly* unlikely to happen unintentionally. I wouldn't worry about it. Smiley If it makes you feel better, then just avoid your heart.

Mirrors I'm not a big fan of, they are great at reflecting and bouncing stuff but they also can seal you in. To an empath *which I'm not* it would be like being put in an empty room with no windows or doors. *can have that feel even when your not an empath. imo.
Yeah, I've never actually created a shield with any of the imagery I mentioned, and none of it sounds particularly appetizing, for reasons like you mention. lol. The thing is I tend to shield myself without really meaning too... and I think I might do it too well, really. In that things that *should* by all means bother me, simply don't.

Anyway, if I were to describe my shield I would describe it almost like those bug zapper lights. Tongue So that things that aren't welcome just get zapped off. haha.

Not exactly.  Issues of that kind would apply (if they're going to - Marilyn's case is a fairly unusual one) as you move energy through your body, before forming the psi ball.

I've never actually formed a ball - I'm talking about the same thing you are - moving the energy itself through my body.  Some 'stuck' things need to stay stuck in order for me to continue, and energy tends to unstick even necessary blocks.  (my damage is left ventricular, a by-pass, the surgical equivalent of 'unsticking', would do me more harm than good, in a possibly fatal way, as well.  According to my cardiologist, who I have no reason to distrust.

Anyway, you've just shone a light for me here with your explanation.  A ball of energy would by necessity have some sort of 'skin' around it in order to hold its shape.  It is possible that moving something like that around would be better than raw energy because it wouldn't inter-act in a physical way in the same manner.  Kind of the way a coating sometimes helps people who can't take plain aspirin.

If I was better at controlling energy to begin with, I might experiment with this ball thing and see if I could feel a difference.

Well, hell - I wish this had come up a few months back; we could've checked this out some while I was there.  When I make an energy ball, I don't think I move energy through my body (though it's possible I'm so used to working with the stuff that I'm not aware of it) - I'm not sure I could explain what I do do in words alone though.  But this might be something you could apply.  OTOH, you've got a good, viable system of practice that doesn't rely on manipulation of (this sort of) energy, so it's more curiosity/tools for the toolbox than any sort of necessity.

I haven't much experience with psi balls so I've never thought of that.  In my experience I've never had trouble containing the energy where I want it.  The psi balls I've made have stayed cupped in my hands though so I don't know if they would act as a 'skin' to contain the energy.  Interesting though.

I've never really thought of them as having/needing a "skin" either - my own experience is that when I shape energy, it retains that shape until it's released.  But possibly that will vary depending on what consistency different individuals perceive it to have - someone who perceives it as very fluid might need the "skin" imagery as a technique for managing it.
