Quick Spotlight: Manifestor & Projector Relationship Dynamics

A couple came to me a few years ago for personal Readings then a Relationship Reading. She is a Manifestor and he is a Projector.

They were eager to learn how to improve their already loving marriage and also how to work together better. They own an art gallery–she runs it and he is the artist.

First of all, the day-to-day running of a business is not ideal for a Manifestor so after her Reading she began delegating more to their employee and taking some time off each week to manage her energy better and focus more on her brilliance—which was generating ideas for increasing their business.

Their pattern prior to their Readings was that she would enthusiastically share a new idea with him for the gallery (maybe a new painting style, subject matter, or arrangement of the gallery), and he would begin the process of shifting to align with and implement her idea. Within no time, she would have several new ideas and be eager to implement those instead. She’s a Manifestor so that approach of “throwing the spaghetti against the wall to see what sticks” is correct for her.

But he admitted to feeling exhausted from trying to keep up with her ideas. It was like he had whiplash from the speed of her frequent changes in direction! And it was a source of friction and frustration for both of them.

When we discussed the dynamics between their different Types and Strategies, they realized that he could simply wait until some of her ideas “stuck to the wall” before he began implementing. And she agreed to “invite” him to implement when she felt good about really pursuing a particular idea.

They were so excited (and grateful) to have a clear and sensible solution to their issue. It honored and respected their respective Strategies. And above all, the solution felt inherently right to both of them.

    Dear Evelyn,
    It is wonderful to see you describe “this couple” and guess what – today is their 27th wedding anniversary! We certainly have benefited from your wise and helpful insights as you described so well in your article. It has been about 6 months since our readings and we are doing things much differently. Sergio says to tell you he sometimes forgets about ‘screening’. I have really been able to stay away from the gallery and put my energies to our website and lots of other aspects of our artistic endeavors – Sergio is enjoying being in the gallery much more and people love meeting ‘the artist’. We also can laugh lots more about our types and strategies and this lightens what used to be tension provoking! Thank you Evelyn for your help and for reminding us of our story on this day!
    Karen and Sergio Ladron de Guevara

    I thought I knew something about people and their HD, and then Yvonne reads the article and starts naming channels 🙂 😯 💡

    This article will help me help my friend. Simple and easy to digest article.

    I was assuming that the best solution for Manifestor-Projector would be such:

    Manifestor gets an idea and informs Projector about that idea, and proceeds to doing – which is called manifesting.

    When Projector is informed, but not asked, there is no action required from Projector, which is correct mechanically, and so Manifestor manifests, while Projector can get another nap 🙂

    If Manifestor comes to a definite outcome – fails/succeeds – and informs Projector about the outcome, then Projector can be supportive/joyful – no energy wasted/gained.

    If Manifestor informs the Projector that “Projector’s insights are the best thing at the moment”, then Projector can read this as an invitation to share wisdom and can guide the energy of Manifestor.

    Please correct me if I am wrong? 😉

    LOVE this article, Evelyn! I know a handful of Manifestors and it SO describes my experience with them as well as their experiences with other Projectors (I’m a Projector)! Thank you. Carry on!
