Why It’s Hard for Human Design Projectors to Wait

As Projectors who have the Human Design strategy to wait for invitations, the wait time is often unnerving and anxiety producing to say the least.  I thought I had become pretty good at waiting until I decided to really pull back and wait for the next thing to come through my business.  What I learned helped me to understand why it’s hard to wait and why it is also very very important to wait with clarity and trust.

This video was made for anyone who is struggling with waiting for someone.  But for Projectors who often have to wait for so long for a big invitation or even for recognition, the message about what you do while you wait could give you something fruitful to consider.

Why Play Is Important for Human Design Projectors

sleep-330869_640For the past few weeks on my  Coaching With Sandy blog and on my Facebook page, the talk has been about play.  This is such an important topic for Human Design Projectors.  Did you know that play is like the lifeblood in our veins?  If it were the air we breathed we would all be functioning at our best and living those “royal” lives that we’re here to live.  Let’s get honest.  For all the conditioning that our open sacrals have sustained throughout the years… not to mention the other open centers which cause us to work hard to please others, prove our worth, make our point, or any other number of things … if it were just us Projectors in a room together we would probably all admit that deep down inside we’ve known all along that we were not put on this earth to work hard.  And if we were together long enough we would eventually abolish work as it’s known today and discover a way to make play a primary means of financial support.  Ok stand up and cheer now if you’re ready to play for a living!

I don’t mean to preach to the choir here, because I know that so many of you are already comfortable with the concept of play.  Some of you are even playing for a living.  Woo Hoo!  Big Cheers!  But for the rest of you who may still be struggling with making the shift into the almost insufferable strategy to wait (usually for long periods of time) for a big life-changing invitation, playing more and working less could actually be your saving grace.  Play rejuvenates the spirit, gives the mind a rest and opens up opportunities for deeper social connections.  It’s so essential to the well being of everyone, but for Projectors it holds a special role.  Play makes the waiting way more enjoyable and facilitates your own self discovery.  In other words, when you play you discover more about what you love.  You will be naturally inspired to go deeply into those loves and passions … ’cause that’s just how we roll… And when you go deeply into what you love you’re getting yourself ready for fabulous invitations and recognition.   Play also puts you in tune with the synchronicities which arise from your inner rhythm.  And it’s the synchronicities which put you in the right place at the right time to meet your people who are looking for you… your people who recognize you, adore you, and support you in countless ways.  So playing isn’t just something that a Projector does to kill time while waiting for an invitation.  It’s what gets you in touch with your true nature.

It can be a challenge, when you’ve been on the Generator treadmill for a while, to make the shift into making play a priority.  Invite yourself to try it everyday… a little at a time… Consciously make room for it.  Give yourself permission.  When you give yourself permission to play you give yourself permission to be you!

An Amazing Human Design Projector Empowerment Group

Colorful-Lines-and-Dots-Vector-BackgroundOn July 2nd we finished the first round of the new 90 day Projector Empowerment Group format, and boy was it powerful!

If you have been with us for a while you know that the Projector Empowerment Group started about a year ago as a monthly membership program.  By the Spring of this year the regular members were ready for something more.  They had become well versed and well practiced on following their strategy and listening to their authority.  Some of them had gone through the Projector Survival Study Program and they wanted to experiment with how to apply the information in the Projector’s Survival Guide to transform their lives.  We worked with the concept of cultivating life-balance and awareness from the inside – out.  It was so inspiring to watch the participants blossom.  Those who really focused on their inner awareness made huge positive changes in their lives.  They got intimate with how to make great decisions and what it really feels like to be recognized and invited.  They let go of pre-conceived limiting ideas about themselves.  They healed bitterness.  They surrendered to the trust that is so necessary for living as a fully empowered Projector.

Here are a couple of comments (edited for privacy) that the participants shared in the private 90 Day Projector Empowerment Facebook group:

 “Having breakthrough!! … Transforming and trusting in being true to my projector self!”P

“Because of the information Sandy gave me on our call, I have been able to give separation between me and the voices/feelings that run around inside me. … Now I can differentiate  “me” “not me”. I am so grateful.” – RRG

It just goes to show that what you do while you wait for recognition and invitations makes a huge difference!  Waiting is hard, especially for Projectors, but support can not only make the waiting easier but it will also make it productive.  

Speaking of waiting… The Projector Empowerment Program is on a little break while more Projectors get ready to join.  If you’re interested just go over to the Projector Empowerment webpage and enter your name and email into the sign up box.  DON’T PANIC you’re not committing to anything yet.  When enough people have signed up I will contact you for an interview to make sure you’re ready for the deeper work that’s required to succeed in this group.  In the meantime, here are some ways to begin to prepare:

  1. Get into the Projector Survival Study Program or study the Projector’s Survival Guide on your own (contact me to see how you can get a copy)
  2. Get a Human Design Reading and perhaps coaching sessions from me or another practitioner
  3. *****Start practicing your strategy and listening to your authority*****

Most of all do number 3 and discover how your life starts to transform even before you play more deeply in your own self discovery.
