This book is written for Projectors and those who love Projectors.
As you may know, I have a passion for helping my fellow Projectors (I am a 1/3 Projector with Splenic Authority) through the amazing tool of Human Design. My new book, Becoming an Empowered Projector, has been a true labor of love and I am beyond excited that it can now be in the hands of people who can benefit from its content.
As I pondered how to structure the book, many months ago, I realized that we needed to start with knowing Who We Are. That alone, when understood fully, can be inspiring and empowering. There are a lot of half-truths and misunderstandings about the role and strategy of Projectors that need to be cleared up. And, it’s especially important because I know that many of us (myself included) were not excited about learning we are Projectors. In fact, that’s a rather large understatement for some of us. (Those of you who cried for a week… you know who you are!)
The truth I share in Part One of the book is that we are AMAZING, brilliant, and absolutely vital to the world–even though the world may not acknowledge, recognize, or invite us… yet.
Part One is called Projector Identity, and the first chapter within it is “Projector Role and Aura.” Here is a little taste of what it says.

“The role of the Projector is to guide. In the language of Karen Curry Parker’s Introduction to Quantum Human Design book, we are Orchestrators. …
“True guiding is not doing. It is the offering of guidance. Guidance can include suggestions, advice, directions, illuminating questions, corrections, next steps, etc. That sounds rather passive because it is. Guiding is not the implementation of guidance; it is the delivery of guidance. Delivery in this case means communicating, not doing.
“Be careful with phrases like: Projectors are here to manage, guide, and direct others. First, people don’t like to be “managed” even if they have asked for your help. Second, managing and directing are often active functions which require sustainable energy (more about that in a moment). We are not even here to be leaders of others, although we can be and many of us are. Simply providing the guidance is the truly correct role for us.
“This does not mean that we never take action. We have bodies and lives and need to function in this busy and complicated world. Of course we take action. When we are able to do that in the way that is right for us, life is much easier. An entire section of this book (Part Two – Decisions, Actions, and Success) is devoted to how Projectors can take action correctly, effectively, and sustainably.”

Here is a little more.

“We easily see how others can improve what they do and maximize their potential. This is our creative energy—our superpower. This creativity is not for the doing of actions but for the gentle guiding of actions and the choreographing of the flow of energy. We are powerful when we are being our naturally wise, insightful, and knowledgeable selves and guiding others from that place.
“The easiest and most productive way for us to accomplish all of this is to recognize and observe the systems and patterns that surround us. Then, we may bring our keen awareness of those to others—when they ask. We are an amazing resource for others because we know so much and can see the bigger picture of how things are working now and how they could work better.”

I hope some of this resonates with you, whether you are a Projector yourself or you know and love a Projector.
I’m delighted to report that the book reached #1 Best Seller status in several categories and has generated some glowing reviews on Amazon. The book is available in paperback and digital (Kindle) versions.
