it’s been a couple of years since i set it up (which shows part of its beauty, set and forget…). this could be done as a shield, but i think i morphed it into more of a mask. but it could be tweaked however one wants i imagine… i haven’t really thought about it so let’s see if i can remember the basic steps…
1. start off in a nice meditative/trance state.
2. mentally go somewhere unlikely to be found much less searched, and even if found likely to cause confusion or even fear to the person. somewhere with an energy signature that will mask yours.
3. blend in with the surroundings and lay low.
now that’s seriously nutshelled, but the basics of it. now let me give an example.
say you project yourself into outer space. (a method to mask your trail would be nice, though i didn’t, at least not deliberately, and haven’t had problems) find a nice place to hide yourself. put yourself into orbit next to a planet, a moon, an asteroid field, or how about right in the nearest star itself? perhaps an ice planet… a nebula? move in, blend in, lay low.
i did something similar and the energy field of whatever i’m partnered with must be masking me. as soon as i came out of my trance state my sister came into my room because she said i disappeared. she couldn’t feel me anymore. i told her what i did without giving details so as not to weaken it. she started checking up on my hunter. she sensed nothing but confusion and anger. and more confusion and more confusion. then fear. they kept looking for some time after that. but after a couple of months they pretty well stopped. they knew i was alive, which made them even angrier. but they couldn’t detect me.
i kept thinking about this, even as i was typing this up and what popped into my mind was like yoda’s exile. the dark place on dagobah acted as a mask. vader, the emperor, they couldn’t find him. they couldn’t detect him. similar principle i think.
