What is your experience or thoughts on shielding vs filtering? I have found that there is a place for each and a time in which to use each.
Shielding - Shielding is good for a total block and shut down of all incoming emotion. I have found this very useful when an overload occurs. Using this shield give me an opportunity to cleanse myself of the negative emotion that has overloaded me without anymore being added.
Filtering - Filtering is a wonderful technique that I try to implement at all times. Using this filter allows the positive emotions to pass through and filters out the negative allowing me to stay cut off from the drama and allow others to still feel my openness to them.
