If you are good enough with energy manipulation, constructs and sheilds will last even after you are no longer concentrating on them. At this point they will still carry out their intended function.

Golden_Psi is correct, but something that may be helpful to keep in mind is that the shield isn't so much holding your thoughts in as it is redirecting them--for example, when a thought "hits" the shield, it slides down and gets grounded. That way there's less of a problem with "build up" inside the shield.

that was acually my next thought, that it might build up inside the shield.

im able to form all types of constucts, as you call them, but i lose concentration quickly thats my issue on that.

would simply putting the thoughts into the ground work when its something i don't want to fire off?

I'm not sure, you could experiment and find out though. A shield which directs thoughts/emotions/etc. down and grounds it has worked for me, but I don't know about trying to just aim one's thoughts at the ground. My guess would be that unless you're really good at focus such that your thoughts go *only* where you direct them to and no where else, you'd have better success with learning to make your constructs last independently of your continued attention.

Longevity of constructs is a skill worth practicing. It can help from constructs to sheilds, and therefore can help with a great number of problems. However, it is a skill, like everything else.

is there a basic practice page I can look over, or would it just be better for me to practice my own and coem up with my own drills?

There are some suggestions for places to look for training suggestions in the FAQ.

Is this the technique being used by magicians on TV like David Blaine and the others?

Doubtful. David Blaine describes himself as an illusionist, not a magician or an energy worker.
