This series, called Navigating the Projector Path, is intended to explore and address the issues that Projectors face and help Projectors align with their Truth, step into their power, thrive as the full expression of themselves, and perform their vital global role of guiding the energy of others and creating and maintaining the quantum energy grid of the planet (thereby guiding the world!).
A Projector does not need recognition and invitations from others in order to feel good about themselves and about what they have to offer. Period.
They only need others in order to help make things happen or, even better, to contribute to things already happening, so Projectors can bring their immense brilliance and wisdom to help grow and improve those “things.”
If opportunities/invitations are not being offered for whatever reason, that in no way diminishes (or, in no way should diminish) the Projector’s sense of self and value. Getting the correct recognition and invitations may simply be a matter of positioning yourself well and then waiting for the right opportunities to show. Lack of recognition or invitations is NOT a judgment against you.
Think of it like playing golf. If you are a golfer and you want to play, you need several things to come together. Ideally you know how to play and have been honing your skills. You also need some balls, tees, and clubs–the “tools” of the game. Then, you need a golf course to play on. That is where the invitation/venue comes in.
As a Projector, you have skills and tools and are just waiting for the right “golf course” opportunities to show up. You CAN (and should!) continue to feel good about yourself, your skills, and your tools while you wait. Golfers do! They don’t feel diminished as golfers if they don’t have a course to play on today.
Projectors tend to make their sense of self-worth dependent on receiving recognition and invitations. But in truth, self-worth is independent of recognition and invitations.
Let me explain.
Recognition is simply a feedback mechanism for letting us know whether our “positioning” and “message” and “presentation” are aligned with our Truth and our highest good, and are therefore being noticed by the “right” people—the ones who want and need OUR skills and tools.
The value of recognition is the energy and attention (and, usually, opportunities) it brings to the Projector.
Invitations simply provide the venues for us to “ply our trade” and be the best version of ourselves. The value of an invitation is the energy it provides the Projector to fulfill the specific opportunity they are invited into. It also provides a flow of energy the Projector can step into, instead of needing to create that flow themselves. Of course, the Projector should not accept all invitations—only those that feel correct and aligned (based on their personal Authority).
Self-worth is our healthy respect for Who We Are and what we bring to the game. It is not tied to recognition or invitations.
At the risk of “mixing metaphors,” this brings me back to my favorite analogy for Projectors… the lighthouse. The value and usefulness of a lighthouse is in no way diminished if only one (or even zero) ships needed its guidance yesterday, or last week, or last month. It still stands, ready to serve, for those ships who specifically need THAT lighthouse. The lighthouse doesn’t even have to work very hard at doing the guiding… it’s already doing it all the time.
A lighthouse does, however, require regular maintenance (hint hint) to perform its function optimally. So, take GREAT care of yourself while you are putting out your beacon (your aura) to the world and feel GREAT about yourself as you wait for the ships who need YOU to find you and your beacon. If the right ships are not finding you easily, try adjusting your beacon a little. Make sure you are shining YOUR true light into the world. Then the right ships (and opportunities) will be drawn to you.
Disclaimer Note: I’m also a pragmatist and believe in doing what you need to do when you need to do it. You may not always have the “luxury” of waiting for an invitation. I don’t mean to imply that waiting for an invitation is nothing more than a “luxury.” Invitations are of IMMENSE value and benefit to Projectors. But we live in a Generator-led and Manifestor-inspired world that doesn’t yet promote the appropriate recognition of Projectors and their vital role. So, we need to make peace with What Is for now, and find ways to navigate this current world—a world that very much needs us but doesn’t always know how to support us.
