As non-sacral beings, Projectors have inconsistent access to sacral energy. You are here to manage, guide, and direct the energy of all the other types. You have a fantastic awareness and perspective that allows you to be sensitive and read others. The key for Projectors is to recognize and acknowledge your own unique gifts first and then wait for the right people to see your brilliance and invite you to share your wisdom. You have a focused and absorbing aura, thanks to the G Center. The ability to access others' energy when acting according to your strategy. When you are invited to share your guidance, you have an uncanny way to help increase productivity, sustainability, and coherence. Ultimately you are here to be a guide for the collective.
Wait for the invitation and recognition to guide others. If you offer unsolicited advice or penetrate others' auras without the invitation, you will experience bitterness. Your aura is absorbing and able to see into others' G Center and the direction of the other. Sometimes people aren't ready or want to be seen in this way.
Emotional (Solar Plexus Center)
You have a consistent way of processing your emotions and are here to learn to ride the emotional wave. When you are in an emotional high or low, is not when to make decisions. Doing so will lead to emotional and impulsive actions in your life. Instead, create space in your schedule and routines to feel your entire emotional cycle. Once you get to a place of neutral, then make the decision.
Splenic (Spleen Center)
Your Inner decision-making comes from your Spleen Center, where you have instant access. It will say it once and in a subtle ping. Think of a whisper like "do this" or "do that"; it might not make logical sense, but you have an inner understanding and knowledge of what to do. Follow those intuitive pings or nudges. Respond to your inner urges and watch where it leads you. You can up-level your life very quickly when you follow your intuitive guidance and trust your instincts.
Ego-Projected (Heart Center)
Your reliable decision-making process comes from the heart center. So follow the urges of your heart, especially after you get that invitation. It's not selfish to follow what you want. Think I statement like "I want" or "I desire ."You make decisions, create and speak things from your heart. You'll work through your recognition and invitations and listen to your heart. Where is it calling you to go? Don't apologize for what you want or where you are going.
Self-Projected (Identity Center)
Your decision-making comes from your connection to the identity center and the throat. Sense of self, direction, and love; you can literally speak from who you are. Listen to the sound of your voice, and express your decision out loud. How is the tone? Surrender to your Authority, and what does it feel like in your body? A No might raise your voice or cause a contraction in your throat. A YES might be an excited tone and expansive feeling in your throat.
Mental (Anja Center)
You have consistent access to your mind. Take time to weigh your decisions. Think of a sounding board; use others to bounce your ideas off of. Not to get their input but to mule over your choices and hear them out loud. You are constantly processing and conceptualizing. Notice how you feel in different environments and what feels right to you. You have a lot of open centers and can be sensitive to the defined centers around you.
5 Tips For Projectors
1) Create balance in your life
As a non-sacral being, you do not have sustainable energy and are vulnerable to burnout. Make sure you create routines and schedules that feel good to you. You can take in and amplify the sacral energy around, which can be unsustainable if you continue to try to keep up with the hustle and grind mentality. You are not meant to work a typical 9-5 or be in school all day long. Try to find work that's flexible or where you can create your schedule.
2) Build in rest
You need rest and space from the Generator field (Sacral Energy). Go to bed before you are tired and sleep until you are well rested. Although you are NOT lazy, you have most likely been conditioned to think you are like a Generator and meant to do, do, do. But that's not the case for you. Projectors need space and time to be in their own energy. Learn to recognize what your system and body needs. Then, you can thrive when you set up the right environment for yourself.
3) Learn to trust yourself + divine
Being in the right location to get the right invitations is very important for you. Make sure you are living in a city and environment that you enjoy. You need to be seen and recognized; if you aren't, your magnetism won't be activated. If you don't love your area, you won't thrive to the level you could. In this case, you will suffer, and other people won't experience your gifts and guidance.
4) Share your guidance when invited
Learn to wait to share your guidance once you have been seen, recognized, or invited. You must be relaxed and become an open channel. Live your life and enjoy what you are doing. You become magnetic to the right people, places, and things. Focus, care, and nurture yourself; as a result, you will be called into service.
5) Work through your wounds of not feeling seen and heard.
In the past, you may have experienced times when you gave fantastic advice, but the other person didn't listen. Then a few weeks later, you check in with them, and they tell you about a great tip they received from a co-worker, AND it was the same advice you gave them just a few weeks earlier! This can make you feel like you aren't seen or heard, but your guidance is only received when you are invited to share. Embrace your own unique nature and value being enough. Over time you will gain a certain sense of inner peace and safety that will enable you to access your gifts of guidance.
