This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Doubling brackets doesn't work (probably because embeds are not processed like normal shortcodes), but encoding bracket tested and works fine. – Rarst Jun 11 '13 at 20:39

There is a special trick to do that with simple shortcode like [gallery]:


But I do not know if it works with enclosed shorcodes

EDIT: I guess you have to use solution 2 provided by toscho

write it as as [ or [;

If you have to write it from time to time you could use the Quicktags API
