Frequently Asked Questions about EMF Shielding Protection using the BioElectric Shield
- Shield Pricing - Putting price, performance and value into perspective- How much does a Shield really cost?
Everyone has their own unique experience with the Shield: some people feel differently immediately, others never feel differently, but life becomes more fun, easier and less stressful. To learn more about this, please visit our New Shield Owners- What to Expect page. You can also read our testimonials or a blog Why do health professional and coaches recommend the Shield.
Please wait at least 12 weeks before any testing is by your health care practitioner, who should be Certified in Applied Kinesiology or have a computerized acupuncture device. Please visit our Research page for more information or contact us.
Is the Bioelectric Shield also called the BioShield?
Yes, it is! In 1990, when the BioShield was invented, we considered this shorter name, but found it was in use as a paint product! So, we extended the name to fully describe it's function - that it would protect the Bio - body, Electric- the electromagnetic nature of the body, by Shielding it from unhealthy energies.
Can you measure the effectiveness of the EMF Protection Shield on a person using an EMF Meter?
Our energy consultant (who sees energy to the cellular level) told us that the testing of a Shield with an Emf meter was tricky because the energy field of the person can affect the meter readings. We work with a family of consultants who has passed down a genetic trait of having the lens of their eyes shaped differently than the rest of us. They ONLY see energy patterns/colors, not solid objects. They have explained that what the meter is reading is the energy that is not getting into that person’s field because the shield is blocking it. The meter stays high, but the person wearing the Shield is completely protected. To the outside observer, it looks like the Shield didn't help the person, but the reverse is true – the energy is just piled up outside their energy field!”.

- Carry or wear the Shield? Can I carry it in a pocket, stick it into a bra, loop it around my belt instead of wearing it around my neck?
You can do any of those options. The ideal location for the Shield is over the heart. It works easiest and most efficiently there, but it is still doing its job regardless of the location. If someone you are giving it to does not want to even carry it in their pocket, they can put it on the nightstand next to their side of the bed, and, as long as it is within three feet of them, it is in their energy field and balancing and strengthening and protecting them as they sleep. See Shield Instructions
- Cell towers nearby? Find out how many cell towers are in your neighborhood, by going to this site: http://www.antennasearch.com. It's free to check. After seeing the number of towers and antennas, you can't help but realize how pervasive this threat is.
- Children and Babies: Can my child wear a Shield?
For the best answer please go to this page: Shields for Children. The short answer is that if you have a baby/toddler, the best approach is to hang a room Shield wherever they sleep. Please do this until they are about 5 years old. At that point, you can move the Shield right next to their bed. (Our room Shield stand is handy for this). Now that it is within 2-3 feet of them at night, it will become their personal Shield, going into resonance with their energy field. Over a period of a few weeks, it will build up a strong cocoon of protection around them and also blend with their bioenergetic field. It will balance and strengthen their energy while they sleep. The cocoon stays around them as they leave their room and go out of the home. When they are older - anytime after 9 or 10 years old, a Level 2 Shield is recommended. If you want to know exactly which Shield is best for your child, take advantage of our free photo analysis.
Children at School? Will the EMF Protection Shield protect my child in front of the school computers?
The basic silver with brass tabs will protect your child 99% from the emf from computers in the schools. If s/he uses a cell phone, we also recommend placing an EMF protection chip on their phone. As we said above, if you want to know exactly which type of Shield is perfect for you child, please take advantage of our free photo analysis.
- Crystals in the Shield? What crystals are in the Shield's matrix?
Our Shields have all-natural crystals in them. They all include quartz crystals, and then the other types vary depending on where you live. (Please see "International Shields" page which explains why this is the case).We don't give out exact formulas as to what is in each shield since this is proprietary information. We assure you that all the crystals are living, natural crystals, of the finest quality available. They are selected for their ability to produce the clearest, strongest vibrational subtle energy support for you. Because the crystals in the Shield are in a very precise pattern, they take on very different properties than those same crystals loose. Even if you knew what stones were in the Shield it wouldn't tell you how it works. Click here to read more.
- Crystals moving? I feel something moving inside my shield, is that ok?
Inside the metal of your Shield is the crystal matrix. The crystals are securely set into a waterproof, shockproof holding material that keeps them safe even if you drop your shield. We usually put a dab of this holding material on the top of the matrix so it will push up against the dome of the shield, thus holding the matrix still. Occasionally it will rub away, and the matrix will be able to move a tiny bit inside the shield. Since it only moves a tiny amount, it does not affect the performance since all the crystals are still securely in place.
- Dependent on Shield? What if I don't want to have to depend on an outside force to protect me? Shouldn't I be able to do this myself?
While each person has tremendous untapped potential to protect themselves without a Shield, why not take advantage of a natural product that will protect you from unnatural energies? If you had a choice between flying between San Francisco and New York or walking, 99.9% of us would use the technology of airplane, instead of taking months to walk! It can be thought of as a modern convenience just the way we think of phones and cars. They make our lives easier.
Another way to think of it is that the Universe provides us with all kinds of tools. We take vitamins, receive health care treatments like massage, use power tools, use a phone - all of which make our lives easier and more pleasant. The world offers us technology that has side effects for our bioenergetic fields. Some people don't notice much, but their energy systems are using energy to maintain their own natural frequency- one that is VERY different from a wireless signal. Again, why waste your energy doing this? In some cases, as humans beings, we are sensitive to this energy, and simply do not have the capability of deflecting all of the radiation coming into our bioenergetic field. Let the Shield deflect those energies so you can use the energy that your body would have used to do that. Read our testimonials to see how life changes when you support your body this way.
- Deplete my Shield? Can the EMF Protection Shield get depleted?
The Shield can get depleted when you are in a high-stress situation, but it has a self-charging mechanism up to a point. If you are wondering if it needs to be recharged, you probably are intuitively picking up that it's time for a "tune-up".
First, try hanging it in sunlight for a day and see if that makes a difference. If it doesn't, try putting it outside again for another day. If this doesn't work, we suggest that you send it in for recharging. You can also have someone do the muscle testing with you to see if the Shield is working to capacity. When you send it in, please add a note that you want our consultant to personally check your Shield while it is in our crystal room. When it's 100% charged, he will see this, and we'll then repolish it for you and ship it back. Muscle testing must be done correctly to provide valid information for you. Here is a video that is muscle Testing Video. After you have watched the video, you can also read over this of instructions from an Internet site we felt was good: http://www.eftstatements.com/articles/muscle-testing/.
To muscle test, refer to the procedure shown in the "Shield Test/Research" section of this website. For the testing, you first do a pretest, then retest by either: imagining a stressful situation or holding up a battery-operated watch or cell phone and retesting. Finally, hold the Shield and retest again. If you test weak even with the Shield, it's time for revitalization. Another note if the Shield is not seeming to work properly, we suggest you take advantage of the free photo analysis.
- Design Issues. Could you design an EMF Protection Shield with another loop so I could wear it sideways instead of hanging?
The 5 tabs correspond to your 2 arms, 2 legs, and head, that is, the anatomical position as drawn by da Vinci. Adding an additional loop could affect the proper functioning of the shield. The function is the key part for you and everyone else. Most people wear the Shield so that it is positioned in the heart area. Wherever you choose to wear it, it's best to stay with that general location. The reason why we suggest this is that we know that the Shield will use your typical wearing location as the "center" of its 360-degree cocoon that it creates around you. If you wear it in your pocket, then this will be the center. If you first wear it at the heart, then move it to your pocket, it has to readjust the center point. For this reason, it's best if you wear it in the same general area each day.
- Differences between Shields? What are the differences among the various shields? See our (how to choose an emf protection shield). The chart addresses your lifestyle and sensitivity to emf as well as other people's energy. We also invite you to call us - or take advantage of our free photo analysis (see top of the page navigation - About the Shield >How to Choose Protection>Photo instructions
- Earth's frequency and polarity - Is the Shield at the earth's frequency? Does the energy of the Shield shift as the earth's frequency changes?
The earth's frequency, sometimes called the Schumann Resonant frequency, is said to be changing based on the consciousness of the inhabitants of this earth. As the consciousness of the people goes up, the consciousness of the planet goes up.
The quartz in the crystal matrix of the Shield are connected to the crystal matrix of quartz all over the planet. They vibrate in harmony with one another, so any changes that affect any of the crystals, will affect all of them in the network, and this includes those in the Shield. They all adapt to the new polarity and then the ones in the Shield, bring the aspects of this new polarity into harmony in your body. (Did you know your body has the same minerals in it as quartz?) This feature is one of the most amazing things about BioElectric Shields - they are always precisely in tune with the earth's polarity, and, because they get recharged by the energy of the sun, they are also in sync with the relationship between the sun's magnetic field and the earth's magnetic field.
This quote below from the article is a great description of how the energies change. The Shield changes right along with all of these field shifts.
"Every 11 years, the strength of this magnetic field gradually decreases to zero, then emerges in the opposite direction, as part of the solar cycle. It’s as if, here on Earth, compasses pointed towards the Arctic as “North” for 11 years, then briefly wavered, then pointed towards Antarctica as “North” for the next 11 years (in fact, the Earth’s magnetic field does reverse as well, but it occurs with much less regularity and takes a few hundred thousand years to do so)."

Other products on the market today are made of computer chips and other artificial materials, and as such, are fixed in their frequency. Because they are artificial frequency generators, they must have a permanent source of energy to power them. Individuals who have submitted their photos in our photo analysis process have found that if they have owned a product like that for more than 2 years, the product is working at about 5% of its original power.
The Shield crystals are easily and permanently recharged by very few hours of natural daylight. It's best to recharge your Shield once a month - or at least every 3 months.
- EMF Detector Meters- Will it show I am protected? (please see video at top of this page)
When we discussed this issue with David Kramer, engineer, and owner of Aegis Corporation, he told us that even though manufacturers refer to their meters as RF meters, none of them actually measure RF, which is a very expensive thing to do. There are no affordable meters that will measure 4G (the current frequency used for cellular communication), and meters that test 5G don't exist. Current meters measure SAR, voltage and magnetic fields.
When you wear a BioShield, it is constantly refracting the harmful frequencies away from your field. And, as our own energy consultant (who sees energy to the cellular level) said: "the testing of a Shield with a gauss meter is tricky because the energy field of the person can actually affect the meter readings". She also stated: “I know it works. I’ve watched so many people and seen what it does for them. It’s just incredible how helpful it is for their energy”. I said – “well, that’s great, but somehow it would be good if I could use an emf meter to prove how it’s working”
She said, “I’ve seen the meters fluctuate – and initially stay high even when the shield is protecting the person, but usually the readings will go down in a few minutes. It can depend on the person actually, so it varies.
"Often it won't go down initially, because what the meter is reading is the energy that is not getting into that person’s field because the shield is blocking it – so the emf reading stays high – but the person is fine. To the outside observer, it looks like the Shield didn't help the person, but the reverse is true – the energy is just piled up outside their energy field!”.
So - in summary, you probably will not get an accurate reading from your meter in terms of how much your body is being protected. We doubt you will see any changes in the EMF meter. The only reliable measurements have been taking on people with and without the Shield. In all those situations, humans have been stronger and healthier wearing the Shield. You can read the numerous EMF Protection research studies.
Room Shields - Likewise, you will not see changes in your Gauss meter because the Shield is constantly processing the EMF in the room. What you may see is a fluctuating meter as more EMF is processed. The Shield is set at a human frequency band and will continually break up frequencies not compatible to living things, be in a pet, person or plant. We have 2 Room Shield styles. Please visit the Room Shield product page to learn about when to use each style.
- Energy Sensitivity: I am sensitive to other people's energies or sensitive to energy in general. How does this Energy Protection Shield help with this?
It helps in 2 ways. First, the Shield strengthens and stabilizes your energy so that you are less affected by your outside environment. Secondly, after 24 hours, it creates a spinning vortex of energy that serves as a "gatekeeper", deflecting any energy that is incompatible with you but allowing energy that is compatible with you. In short, it lets in the "good" energy and deflects the "negative or unhealthy" energy of a person, place or situation.
- Engrave Shield? Can the Shield be engraved?
Yes, within very narrow limits. We have are specific guidelines to make sure the design doesn't interfere with the energy of the Shield. There are certain designs, which will skew and ruin the effectiveness of the Shield. To be sure, please call and discuss it with us or mail in a copy of the design.
- Feel: What will I feel wearing a Shield? What if I did feel something, but now I don't?
The energy of the Shield is very similar to the ocean or old-growth forest. However, not everyone feels a noticeable difference wearing the Shield. If you are already a balanced person, you may not notice a physical sensation change. Rather, you will find that your life just goes more smoothly, or you are less triggered by people or situations that triggered you before.
Research done on the BioElectric Shield by several different clinicians has shown that even when you don't feel anything, there is a measurable difference in how the organs are functioning, the overall strength and balance of the body. How many of us are aware of the subtle changes in our bodies? Usually, we only notice them when we become ill.
The Shield is a subtle energy device and for some, the changes are dramatic, for others they can be very subtle and hard to pinpoint. Many people simply feel things are a little easier and less stressful.
Our guarantee: Keep your Shield for at least 9 weeks from the date of purchase. If you feel the Shield isn't for you, return anytime between this 9 week period and 90 days from your original purchase date. After the 9 weeks, we will refund 100% of your purchase price. Shipping charges are not refundable.
Any returns before the 9 week period will have a 10% refurbishing fee or $45, whichever is more, deducted from the refund. Shipping charges are not refundable.
Custom Shields do not have a 90-Day Guarantee because they are custom designed and made for only your energy field and are not returnable.
Why do we want you to keep your Shield at least 9 weeks? The Shield is a subtle energy device and it takes time for it to blend with your energy field. During the first 4-6 weeks your Shield it is re-balancing your energy field while it is also protecting you from EMF. After this blending period, you should begin to notice ways in which your life is different. Perhaps you will notice that you are not as stressed out as you used to be - you might laugh more - or be less critical of others confrontations and interactions may be smoother. You probably will not get the fatigue you used to get from being around computers, or particular people. But this takes some TIME to accomplish these results and is cumulative.

- Feel Nothing? What if I feel something initially, but then I don't feel anything?
Some people don't feel a difference any longer and wonder if perhaps their Shield isn't working. This is because they are so used to the energy of the Shield. Often when they first start wearing it during the initial balancing process they feel a lot of changes, but after a while, they don't feel as much. This doesn't mean the Shield isn't working. It simply means that the Shield has balanced your energy, and will continue to do so, but many new changes are no longer happening. For many people, if they were to quit wearing it for a time, they would then notice the difference in how they feel. The other reason you may not notice the energy of the Shield is that it tunes to your energy - so when you put it on, you're putting on your own energy, so there isn't that initial "rush" of feeling as when you put on a new Shield. If you are still not sure, please take advantage of the free photo analysis. Our team of consultants, who are able to see your energy field, can determine how well the Shield is working with your energy. Sometimes a person really does need a different Shield, so the photo analytics can be very helpful to you.
- Fix Your Energy? Can the Shield "fix or lock" my energy at one frequency? Does it have only one crystal in it?
No, the Shield contains not just one crystal, but a specific configuration of crystals, which causes the Shield to behave differently than a single crystal. The Shield comes at a balanced frequency band. When you first put on a Shield, your frequency will be somewhere within that band. The Shield will find your specific frequency within 12 hours.
Here's an analogy for this. When you put two tuning forks together which are within a half note of each other, they will tune to the same note within a short period of time. The Shield will always tune to your energy, and then help balance and strengthen it, even as you change and grow over the years. It NEVER fixes or locks your frequency.
- Headache or feeling bad wearing a Shield? What might it mean if I got a headache or feel blah, spaced out, dizzy, or notice some "negative" symptom wearing the Shield?
- International Shields: What are "International Shields?
Different regions of the world have different energy needs. We've developed Shields to specifically meet the needs of each area. If you are traveling or living in an area outside of North America (i.e., USA, Canada or Mexico) for less than a year, your regular (North American) Shield is fine, but if you are going to another continent for over a year then we recommend getting one designed for that region. See Worldwide EMF Protection Shields
- Negative Energy: Will a Shield absorb negative energy?
No, the Shield works differently than a single crystal or gemstone. When a person buys a single crystal, it comes at one frequency and will absorb energy. Then the single crystal has to be cleansed with seawater or the sun. When you are wearing the Shield, it is not absorbing any energy. When it is on you, it is in the "protect and balance" mode, balancing and strengthening your energy field, and deflecting any energy not compatible with you. Therefore, it isn't ever going to absorb negative energy. You can also charge up the crystal matrix of your Shield while you are wearing it. If you wear it outside your clothing on a sunny day, the energy of the sun will be conducted through the metal of your Shield, and revitalize your crystal matrix. You can also accomplish this when you hang your Shield in a window or outside during 6 hours of daylight (rain or shine). Read more: Re-charge or revitalize your EMF Protection Shield
- Other People's Energy? Does it protect me from other people's energy - especially if it's negative?
When you wear a Shield, you can imagine that you are in a cocoon of energy that has blended with your own, strengthening, and stabilizing your own vibration. Thus, you are less affected by any energy which is not a vibrational match with your own. Additionally, at the edge of this "cocoon", the Shield creates a vortex of energy that serves as a "gatekeeper". Any energy not compatible with your energy is spun around you. Many people find that, when wearing a Shield, it is easier for them to establish healthy boundaries with regards to other people and the demands that are placed on them. Watch our video on the home page and visit the How it Works page.
- Pacemaker- Will the Shield interfere with a pacemaker?
We always request a photo of anyone wearing a pacemaker so we can determine which Shield will be best for them. Many people who wear a pacemaker are fine with a standard Shield. Others benefit greatly from having us customize their Shield. Read about this on our individually customized Shield page. It contains both the photo instructions and an explanation of what a customized Shield is. Then, please email or mail us your photo and the answers to our questionnaire.
- Positive Ions- Does the Shield prevent the buildup of positive ions? Or get rid of them if I have too many of them in my body?
Yes, it will get rid of them if you have too many when you first start wearing your Shield. After that, it will keep them in balance.
- Polishing My Shield? What is the best way to polish my Shield? Click here for more details
Level 2 and 3 Shields (sterling silver or sterling silver/14kgold) - You can any commercial silver cream polish or use the polishing cloth we sell - our supplier tells us it is the best cloth in the jewelry industry! It's easy to use and less messy than a cream. It can be used for all your jewelry - not just the Shield.
- Level 1 - all brass Shield. Brass tarnishes quickly. Use our polishing cloth or Brasso to clean. The shiny polished finish tarnishes less quickly than the satin.
- Pregnancy? Can the Shield be worn during pregnancy?
It's great to wear a Shield during pregnancy! Today, there is WiFi nearly everywhere, and research is showing that the fetus is very sensitive to this energy. In fact, research has shown that women who use their cell phones a great deal are more likely to have a baby who has health challenges, ADD, and possibly even autism. (BioInitiative Report 2012- see our blog)
The Shield strengthens a person's entire energy field. Our acupuncture research showed that the immune system and all body organs and systems were strengthened by wearing the Shield. During pregnancy, a woman may need extra strength and a better-balanced energy field for the additional demands that are placed upon her. Because the fetus and Mother are cohabiting the same body, the Shield will be balancing the fetus as well.
- What if I’ve had my Shield for over a year? You can't send it in for credit, but you can send it in to get it recharged and repolished and then sell it, or gift it to someone else. You can also clear the energy by hanging the Shield in a window for 6 days. Read below for more details on how to clear a Shield.
- Recharging Your Shield: How do I get my Shield recharged if I don't recharge it myself?
You can send the Shield to us in Montana for repolishing & revitalizing in our special crystal room, Please check our current pricing for this service by clicking on our EMF Protection Shield Recharge page.
Remember, if the Shield is hung in daylight (i.e., sunny or cloudy) at least once a month for at least 6 hours, then it will stay fully charged, forever! Charging it during daylight only for several days won't hurt it because it can't get "overcharged". If you leave it out overnight, then 3 days of recharging, during daylight hours only, will bring it fully back.
The Shield cannot be recharged with laser pens, ocean water, Reiki or any other method other than hanging in natural light. Read more about recharging.
As for International Shields, please Do Not return for recharging unless you wish to cover the usually high shipping charges and complicated customs procedures!

- School and Computer: Will the EMF Protection Shield protect my child in front of the school computers?
The basic silver with brass tabs will protect your child 99% from the emf from computers in the schools. If s/he uses a cell phone, we also recommend placing an EMF protection chip on their phone. As we said above, if you want to know exactly which type of Shield is perfect for your child, please take advantage of our free photo analysis.
- Secret of the Stones in the Shield -Please link to What's the Secret of the Stones in the Shield Matrix?
- Share my Shield? Can I share my Shield with someone else?
No, sorry - you can't share your Shield with anyone else. The Shield becomes resonant with your energy field within just hours. When you share Shields between people it's like you're actually "putting on" their energy. If your energy fields are very similar, it's might not a problem, but we've had customers who have switched Shields accidentally, and it was very uncomfortable for one or both of them.
If you wish to give, sell or gift your Shield to someone else, you can clear it completely by hanging it in sunlight for up to 6 consecutive days (but remember to bring it in at night) Read more about recharging your Shield.
- Showering? Swimming? Can I/should I wear my Shield while showering, bathing or swimming?
Yes, you can! The only time we suggest you take it off is if you are going into a chlorinated swimming pool - please visit our Wearing and Caring for your Shield page.
- Shunghite - does it provide EMF protection? Shunghite is the latest "rage" among some mineral/gem enthusiasts. We ordered 20 pieces of Shunghite, placed them in a small bowl sitting next to a laptop computer which was operational. We then took a photo of the shunghite pieces I had in a small bowl, and put them next to my laptop. The consultant said that they were dissipating about 20% of the radiation. They could be a nice addition to place near a computer or iPad. He commented that they have about 5% of the overall effectiveness of a Shield regarding EMF protection and energy balancing/strengthening.
- Stress Relief? How does the Shield work to help me with stress?
By reinforcing your own naturally healthy and strong energies, you are less susceptible to outside disturbances. When a person is tired, it takes much less "aggravation" to produce a stress reaction. The Shield helps to strengthen and balance your energies, allowing you to handle difficult situations and people more easily. It also deflects unhealthy energies from other people(depression, anger, etc.) that normally your energy field must deflect. The Shield deflects more than 90% of this unhealthy energy. Stress testing has shown that people remain physically strong even when imagining a stressful situation. For more comments please see Shield Testimonials.

Yes, it is; however, we do not recommend wearing it in a chlorinated hot tub or swimming pool because sterling silver will tarnish much more quickly when exposed to enough chlorine. Shower, bath, lake, river or ocean water is fine. Read the EMF Protection Shield Instructions
- Weaken the body? Can the Shield weaken my body over time as my body becomes used to the shielding and thus does not have to work to protect itself?
The irony of this claim is that the Shield actually does the reverse of weakening the body over time. When someone puts on a shield, it assists their energy field in becoming more balanced, and having more strength, or "chi". Over time, it reinforces this pattern of energy balance and strength. Then if a person takes off the shield, their energy field stays at the new level of balance and strength. Most people wear the Shield for months or years, and then find they are ready to take it off for a while-maybe a weekend, or a month, or even a year. All this means is that their energy field has built up a pattern of strength so that it is deflecting negative energy all on its own.
After a while, most people prefer to put the Shield back on for one of 2 reasons. First, more transponders or cell towers have gone up in their area, and the energy bombarding is more, or second, their body is ready for the support of the Shield again. Saying the Shield weakens the system would be the equivalent of saying that supplements weaken the system. No, they both support the body and make it stronger. If you want evidence for this we invite you to visit our research page as well as the testimonials of people who have worn the shield for years and love how they feel wearing it.
- Wearing my BioElectric Shield EMF blocker pendant?
- Do I have to wear the Shield all the time?
No, we suggest you use your intuition about how much to wear your Shield. Most people wear it all the time either as a pendant or in their pocket. Some women will pin it to an undergarment or (loop it around a strap) so it is not showing, but still close to their hearts. Others use their Shields only during the day or in certain circumstances like when working with computers, when feeling especially stressed and/or being around people, etc.
If I haven't worn it for a while, does it take 24 hours to readjust to my energy field? No, it's still tuned to your body. However, we recommend recharging it for at least 2 consecutive days if it's been a few months since you recharged it. You also might consider sending it back for a recharge in Montana if you have not worn it for a year or more.
- Wearing the Shield with other energy devices, magnets, crystals and/or jewelry?
You can wear your Shield with other energy-generating products. The Shield will actually balance other crystals, jewelry, magnets, or other energy devices that are worn on the body. In fact, the Shield will harmonize the frequency of any other vibrational objects you wear with it to work even better with your own body. The balancing of your Shield enhances the effect of homeopathic, herbal tinctures, and all forms of natural healing.
Is there any form of metal or gemstone that the shield is NOT compatible with, and could it create a sensory overload on persons who are sensitive? Is the shield compatible with Tektite/Moldavite?
- Do I have to wear the Shield all the time?
- Since the Shield balances energy, this would include ridding the body of positive ions if there were too many of them for the person to be balanced. The same answer applies to prevent a build-up of positive ions - the shield will keep the ions in a balanced state.
Not that we've found and definitely compatible with moldavite. As far as sensory overload the Shield keep working to balance your field, but some powerful crystals can be too much because of the intensity of the energy and what they are doing to your field. Again, use your intuition. If it's too strong, either the Shield or the other stones, simply reduce the time you are wearing/using them, allowing the energy to work with your field most gently.
- Wearing Options
- Be consistent about where you wear your Shield - Wherever you choose to wear your Shield, it is best if you are consistent about the location. The Shield creates a vortex of energy around you, and the center will be determined by where you wear it. If you keep moving it around, the Shield has to recreate the vortex with a different center point each time you move it.
- Where is the ideal location for wearing the Shield? Can I carry my Shield in a pocket, stick it into a bra, loop it around my belt instead of wearing it around my neck?
You can do any of those options. The ideal location for the Shield is over the heart. It works easiest and most efficiently there, but it is still doing its job regardless of the location. If someone you are giving it to does not want to even carry it in their pocket, they can put it on the nightstand next to their side of the bed, and, as long as it is within three feet of them, it is in their energy field and balancing and strengthening and protecting them as they sleep. We also have some nice belt-pouches to make it easy to wear the Shield on a belt. See Shield Instructions
- Where is the ideal place to wear the Shield on the body Wearing the Shield so it is suspended over your heart is an ideal location. However, you can wear the Shield anywhere and it will still work just fine. Some people pin it to a pocket
- Does the length at which it's worn make a difference, i.e. if worn at upper heart level versus lower heart level or at solar plexus?
For most people, it's most effective at the heart or upper heart. But use your intuition, if you're feeling guided to wear at solar plexus there may be a reason that it's needed most there at the moment.
- If using it on a keyring, how would that be effective if the user keeps the keyring in their purse for the most part, and then away from the body when not using the purse?
The keyring is for anyone who will keep it in their pockets during the day.
- How close to the body should it be at all times to be most effective? Does removing it at night and placing on a nightstand lessen its effectiveness? The Shield needs to be on your body or within 3 feet if it's hanging up. When it's on the nightstand it's still working, but not as effectively because when it's on a surface the energy doesn't flow around it as well. However, that's perfectly okay. Your energy field retains the patterning it "learns" from the Shield for a period of time, so it's actually good to take it off at night.
- Wear out - Do the Shields wear out?
Not if you recharge them regularly. To recharge the Shield yourself and keep it working at peak efficiency, hang it in daylight, either sunny or cloudy, for at least 6 hours a month. Daylight through a window is fine, but outside is even better! This recharging cannot be done while wearing the Shield in the sun. It needs to be off your body hanging free so there is space around it. This will re-energize the crystals in the Shield. The crystals in the Shield are constantly working and begin to get fatigued. Physicists have been recharging crystals through various methods for years, but we know that sunlight will work perfectly for the Shield. Do not leave the shield hanging in the moonlight. Moonlight will deplete your Shield. See our care instructions page for more details.
- Why get a Shield? I don't use a cell phone or computer at all, or very seldom, so is there any reason for me to be protected?
Yes, just because you aren't using a cell phone doesn't mean you aren't being impacted. The energy of everyone else's cell phones, cell towers, antennas, and all the other technology around us is pervasive and bombarding you on a constant basis. It's impossible these days to get away from WiFi - even if you don't use it, your neighbors, the stores, schools and practically everyone around you does. If you want to know how much WiFi is around you, just go to your network settings and see how many networks are within range of your computer.

- White Gold vs. Yellow Gold - is the Yellow Gold Shield stronger than the White Gold Shield? Gold can be yellow or white, and it is still the strongest amplifier of the energy from the crystal matrix. The color of the gold is simply offering you a different appearance, but the strength of the Shields are identical.
