Before I begin this article, let’s first relax a little. Don’t worry, this will not take long – I will get to the information right after this. Just humour me for a bit, and try this out.
Take a deep breath. And another one. Feel how the air fills your lungs. Notice your legs, how do they feel? What about your stomach, your chest, your shoulders, your throat, and your head? Scan them one by one. Take a few more deep breaths. Sigh a little, let out some sound on the exhale. Now, close your eyes and feel for a bit. Then continue reading when you feel like it.
Do you feel that? Do you feel your body? How do you feel? Let me just take a wild guess and say, you feel exhausted. I know I do. I have known I am a projector for seven years now. For seven years I have rested, taken it easy, slowed down and still, I am tired.
Now this statement “I am tired,” I will unpack it in a little bit. But first, I just want to give you some recognition. I understand how tired you are, and it’s okay. If you would rather take a nap right now, please go and do it. There is enough time to read this article later. Just relax, lay down, take it easy. There is no need to be active right now.
If you are not a Projector and you are reading this, thinking, “But, I am also tired!” I hear you. We are all tired. We are in an extremely tumultuous time. Our Planet is in chaos. Fear is the name of the game. At work we are afraid that we don’t work hard enough, make enough money, that we are not liked or don’t live up to the expectations of those around us. And then we get home and try to relax by watching some TV or scrolling through our phone, and there we are only faced with even more fear, terror, violence, drama, tension and just general unhappiness. We are living in an atmosphere of constant panic. We have been for a long time, but now this panic is coming more and more to the surface.
Now regardless of whether this is good or bad or where it comes from – look at the open centres in your chart and imagine that you are receiving this energy all the time, wherever you are, whoever you’re with. These centres are like eager black holes, absorbing all the shit – let’s just call it what it is – of the world. Because that is what they’re designed for. They absorb energy, because that is what they are here to do. In that sense, as Ra Uru Hu reminded us often, there is no choice. Open centres are designed to learn. All the energy they receive is information. Through energy we communicate with the world around us, and every photon of energy is carrying a message.
It just happens that in the world today, this message is often some version of “I am afraid.” And that is why Projectors are here, to answer that message.
Projectors are not here to be busy, they are here to guide the busi-ness
Projectors as we know them today have started coming into the world in 1781. That is when humanity mutated from seven-centered, strategic beings of mental awareness, to nine-centered beings transitioning to a life of emotional awareness (see image caption for more). Projectors have been here for not even 250 years. We are here to guide the transition. We are here to awaken to deeper awareness, to learn that there is no need to be afraid, and to guide humanity into this perspective.
Projectors play the beautiful and important role of guides in this mutative time. It is also a challenging role. Because the society we were born in is not designed for us. It is designed for Manifestors and Generators – people who produce physical matter, energy that we can touch, that has material value. Reflectors have always had a place in this world. In a world of constant activity, they are the seers, the oracles – they gave (and still give) a space for reflection, a moment of silence in the storm.
The contribution of Projectors is, like that of Reflectors, nonmaterial. Guidance is not something you can touch. Projectors are not designed to do the work that Generators and Manifestors do, they are designed to be receptive to it and guide it. Projectors now number almost 23% of the population, and that number is growing. That is almost a quarter of the population functioning in a way the opposite of what we are familiar with. Let’s just say, it is taking us some time to get used to it.
Projectors are not here to be busy, they are here to be participating observers. They join in the processes of life primarily to learn about them. This is the nature of the open Sacral center. Projectors are here to guide the energetic process of manifestation and generation.
The world as it is now is incredibly dysfunctional. Sacral energy is being used in mostly distorted ways more often than not. Therefore Projectors will find plenty to fix. We usually know very well how, but we are hindered by the feeling of disempowerment. We simply don’t know where to start, how to get our voice heard, how to get recognition for the wisdom we bring. And since humanity has only had a few centuries with Projectors, no one else knows either. The education system is designed to educate Generators and Manifestors – in a very distorted way. No one even knows what a Projector is – let alone Projectors themselves. We are usually way too busy trying to fit in, pushing ourselves to be able to make a living, struggling to survive, to even consider that there might be a completely different way of being alive.
Where Manifestors have the power to just barge in a door and start telling people what to do (for some necessary nuance, click the link), Projectors who try the same, are simply ignored. Their energy is not designed for that kind of interference. And for very good reason. Manifestors get accomplished what they want, but this is not always necessarily what those they involve want. Projectors are able to recognise the needs and wishes of those they guide. This has everything to do with the concept of free will. They are designed to integrate the energy of the other. They are not able to do anything, that the other does not consent to. In other words, they need to be invited. When the other, out of their free will, chooses to open to the energy of the Projector, that is when they can give their guidance. In this way, the contribution they make is of exceptional value. They are able to give back exactly the energy they receive from the other.
So, it is essential that the other opens their energy, so the Projector can receive it, analyse it, and then project their wisdom. When the energy of the other is not opened – there is no invitation – then there is no energy available for the Projector, or the energy that is available is not the “right” energy. To continue trying to make something happen only leads to exhaustion for everyone involved. And this is the reason most Projectors are so exhausted all the time. They are in unhealthy or unfulfilling interactions or working on ideas that have no energy behind them.
Waiting for the Invitation is all about recognition
This is why Ra Uru Hu gave as the most important strategy for Projectors, “Wait for the invitation.” Waiting for the invitation allows Projectors to take a step back and hold out for the right energy. This is quite effective, but in my own experiment as a Projector I have found that an even more crucial concept to understand is recognition. An invitation is the product of recognition, and therefore recognition always needs to happen first. A Projector recognises and is recognised – or not – constantly. This is the theme that marks the path of the Projector, from one recognition to another.
The most important recognition is the recognition of Self. In other words, knowing who you are and what your qualities are. I found that working on my self-esteem has been the best thing to do in order to be Seen by others. Ra Uru Hu said that the most important question for the Projector is “who is the other?” In my experience, this is because a Projector can see themselves projected on the other. That is why the name of the type is Projector. The other being like a silver screen on which the Projector can see who they are, and who they are not. In the way the other responds to their projection, they can recognise themselves, or recognise what does not actually resonate with them. You are what you project. The more amazing you think you are, the higher the esteem others will have of you.
So, first and foremost, recognise yourself. Recognise how much you know, the awesome wisdom you have to offer. Develop your abilities, work on what excites you and what you are good at. You project what you are – when you are joyous and excited about life, this is what others will see in you and then surely the invitations will flood you. Who doesn’t want to invite such a beautiful, exuberant being into their life? And you know, some won’t. What you offer may simply not be what they need. So if you don’t get invited, it must be right for you both somehow – because it sure isn’t because you are lacking in quality.
What is crucial to understand here, is that any situation is a situation that you create for yourself. You are not a victim of circumstance in any way. Projectors create the invitations. We call them towards us – literally, we ask others to invite us, or energetically by being open and ready for invitations. We project who we are and what we have to offer. We radiate wisdom out into the world. Others receive this call subconsciously and are consequently drawn towards those Projectors whose wisdom will help them further.
Waiting passively and doing nothing is not going to get you anywhere. I am not saying that you should not do nothing, by all means relax, take your time, be gentle on yourself, rest. At the same time, hiding your true Self is not going to do anyone any good. If you want something to happen in your life, you cannot just passively wait for it to come to you. You are only going to get further when you show yourself and when you work on what it is that you are showing. If you are going to work every day to a job that makes you miserable and spend the rest of your time in bed resting – then that is who you are and that is what people will see. You are the advertisement showing what you have to offer the world.
How to live the ultimate Projector life
If you find yourself in a position where invitations are not coming, there is nothing that is stopping you from making those invitations happen. Look at yourself and who you are. What is the image of you that you are projecting out into the world? What do people see when they look at you? And definitely ask for reflections about this from people in your environment. Who you think you are is not necessarily who you actually are. We have a conscious as well as an unconscious aspect of our being after all. If you realise the image is not 100% what you wish it to be – develop yourself.
Invest in yourself. You don’t have to wait for the invitation for everything, you just need to recognise what is right for you. You can recognise where you will find energy. Show yourself to the world, find the energy, engage with life – and life will respond.
Getting back to this feeling of “I am tired.” As I outlined in the beginning, we have every reason to be tired. It feels like an uphill stuggle, sometimes, this life. I am struggling with my energy levels every single day, so I do not take it for granted. I often feel desperate about where I am supposed to get the energy to accomplish all I want to accomplish. I honestly have no idea. Contemplating over and over the idea “I don’t know where to find the energy,” I realised that this is the very nature of the open Sacral center. The energy is not defined. It is unknown and unlimited. Think about this, unlimited energy. Think again about Obama, who managed to run a country for 8 years with only two defined centers in his chart.
Projectors can do anything. Everything. Unlimited potential. Whatever a Projector needs to do, they will be able to do. The only reason you feel tired, is because this tiredness is preventing you from doing a lot of things that you do not need to do.
Unlimited energy potential can be easily manipulated and set to work for things that are a complete waste of time for a Projector. That is in fact what is happening to most Projectors in the world. They are running around, working harder than anyone, because they don’t realise that they don’t need to do that. As soon as you get a hint that, maybe – just maybe – you might have something better to do, the exhaustion sets in. Some people just burn out immediately, they get ill, break a limb, fall into depression – whatever their body feels is a good way to slow them down. Others learn their lesson more slowly. As soon as your consciousness opens up to the possibility that what you’re doing may not be right for you, there is no going back. The learning from hard work is done. The way to your true self becomes inevitable.
Feeling tired – like any sensation of the body – is a message. A message that tells you to take it easy. It is not a state of being. Therefore “I am tired” is not a correct statement per se. “I am Ariane.” “I am human.” Tired is just a feeling I get a lot, because I need to hear it. It is reminding me to rest. Therefore identifying with it is more disempowering than it is useful. So I found it much more useful to recognise my exhaustion, every time I feel it, and then to not take it seriously. Yes, I feel tired often. Yes, I need a lot of rest. And rest needs to be the basis for life as a Projector. I also have limitless energy. That means that whenever I do need to have energy, and it is correct for me to be busy, I will have all the energy I need. So much more important than waiting for the invitation is listening to your inner authority. What are you excited about? What feels right to you? Where do you want to be? Follow that, and you will have all the energy you need.
I can honestly say that I am never actually tired anymore. When I do feel tiredness in my body, I know it is just a feeling that is there, allowing me to take it easy. If the next minute someone calls me with an exciting invitation, the energy is coursing through my body again. Where did the exhaustion go? It was never there!
So it is very simple: follow your joy. You will have all the energy you need. When you go against your nature, you exhaust yourself. You don’t always need to wait for an invitation to do anything. You do always have to sense whether the energy is right for you to engage with. When you follow your inner authority, you will always find the right energy for you.
When you find yourself in front of obstacles or challenges – in other words, things that go wrong or feel bad – these are only there to help you realign with your truth. Bad situations only come into our life to teach us. Always. You are never a victim of anything. Whenever you feel like a victim, this experience is only there to challenge you to step into your power and learn the lesson that is there for you. When you rise to the challenge each time, you will learn the truth of this deeper and deeper.
Becoming wise about life is the most important job of the Projector. It is the whole purpose for which you were born. So you can count on every single thing that you encounter in your life being there so you can become wiser. When you view every aspect of your life as an opportunity to learn, you will become wise beyond your wildest imagination.
How to accelerate as a Projector:
- STOP doing things you don’t want to do. Stop wasting your time and energy.
- Relax. Take your time, you have all the time in the world. Make rest the most important aspect of your life.
- Learn, investigate, absorb everything you find remotely interesting like your life depends on it (because it does).
- LOVE YOURSELF. Recognise how amazing you are and let the whole world know.
- Expand your awareness. Consciousness is your most powerful tool.
This is a short audio I recorded when inspiration struck me while I was out walking with my dog. It is therefore not the best quality, but don’t let that prevent you from letting the resonance strike a cord deep within you.
