I much prefer online shopping. I can spend more time thinking about what I want and have stores from all over the world at my fingertips without anyone elses emotions flooding me while I shop. I am working on grounding and shielding too but I have never been very good at visualizing so it is slow work.
Have you tried Grounding, Shielding or Cleansing your Energy right before you leave to go shopping or even while you are in the store, on your way, etc. ?
It can be as simple as rolling down the window & letting some fresh air hit your face, splashing water on your face, washing your hands, chewing a piece of gum or a mint, etc.
You might also find this odd, but do you have a place that makes you feel safe & very serene?
It could be a room in your home, your back porch, a beach, your backyard, a favorite place to eat, etc.
If you do, you might want to try this:
Take something from that place where you feel safe & at peace & carry it with you.
It could be a piece of the ground(dirt, earth, gravel cement, brick, limestone, etc.) You can place the loose dirt, etc. in a small baggie or tiny container & carry it in your pocket , a seashell, a coin, a dollar bill, a postage stamp, a stone, a book of matches, a napkin, a business card, a marble, etc.
If you haven't used the Empath Survival Program, you may want to take a look at it.
I hope you find relief soon,
