Hey there it’s Sandy Freschi, Professional Life Coach and Human Design Specialist. And I just want to spend a few moments with my beloved Human Design Projectors, because one of you had a really great question. So I’m going to answer this question in several parts, and first of all I’ll let you know what the question is.
You asked, “if Human Design Projectors have to wait to be invited how do we earn a living?”
And that is a fabulous question. And I’m sure if you have Joss started down your path of learning how to live as a human design projector, and learning to practice your strategy, this may be your number one question. Because many of you are finding that you’re in the wrong jobs. We’re not built as projectors to do the 9 to 5, 40 hour a week grind. And so if you been doing that for a long time and you know instinctively it doesn’t work, and you have gotten that confirmation by finding out you are a projector, you’re probably asking
“What in the world do I do from here to earn a living?”
Well in this video I’m going to just give you a few ideas about what you can do. So as you know, Human Design Projectors are here to manage guide and direct others. I was listening to a lecture by Ra Uru Hu the other day, the founder of human design, talking about the difference between guiding and leading as it pertains to Projectors. And the differentiation he made is that we are not really here to lead in the traditional sense where we are at the top of the chain of command so to speak, and to order people around. If you’ve tried that before you know that it doesn’t work very well, and if it does work you’re probably exhausted by the time you were done doing it. So when we’re talking about managing and guiding and directing, we’re talking about doing it from a place of helping other people find their truth, then helping other people find their directions. We are really good at seeing the big picture and knowing exactly what needs to happen in a situation or what a person needs to do to get to where they want to go. The caveat to that is that we have to be invited to let them know that. So when you’re in a profession where you can do that you’re automatically be invited to do that, as long as your continue to be aware of how you are communicating through your energy field, how you’re affecting people by your energy field and you honor that and you don’t push.
So here are some great career ideas for Projectors.
Number one on the list is coaching, and I love coaching. I just love coaching because I don’t have to find the answers for people because I recognize that people have their own answers. Those answers just need to be brought out in ways that the person can use. So that’s what coaching is all about in terms of helping other people and guiding and directing them.
You can also be a consultant. If you have an expertise in something you can use that to consult with other people to help them get a handle on what they’re trying to achieve through your own expertise. And then of course they invite you in when they hire you to consult with them and tell them what needs to be changed and what they need to do.
Healing is the other profession that is really great for Projectors, because most of us are very open and our energy fields, and we take people in very deeply and we know what they’re about. And when we get really good at managing our own energy we have a transformative effect on other people, and a healing effect. When you couple that with mastery in a healing technique or two then you’ve got a really great combination to help guide people to a better place of wholeness and health. So that’s another thing that you could possibly do.
Of course you could also have a traditional managerial position in a company as an employee, and that would work really well also as long as you have the expertise to feel that you’re managing in, and you’re given the leeway to honor the ups and downs of your energy so that you can replenish. For instance, if you’re a manager and you have your own office then you can close the door to get away from other people so that you can discharge all that energy that you picked up and rest a little bit between your different tasks. So that’s another thing of course that Projectors can do to earn a living.
I’ve also seen Projectors as… I also know a few projectors who are fabulous actors, very talented actors and artists. Of course this is on the fringe of nontraditional and it may not bring you immediate financial reward. But if it’s something you have a gift at it something you must pursue at least on some level.
So the key to finding a career or a way to earn a living as a Projector is to find what you really love and go very deeply into it.… And to study it… And to… Embody it… And live it and breathe it…
Now when I was a massage therapist I had a very vibrant and thriving massage business. One of the secrets of my success, (even though I wasn’t fully aware of living my projector strategy, and a lot of times I was following the generator model)… But one of the things I credit to my success of there is that I didn’t immers myself in massage techniques that really put me a cut above in terms of skills of everyone in my area.
So when you approach a job, whether you’re an employee or whether you’re becoming an entrepreneur or are an entrepreneur, that’s something to keep in mind. When you go deeply into what you love and you bring that out and share it with others people will naturally flock to you because they will know that you have the answers. And they know that you can help them find the answers for themselves.
So here’s your assignment for today…
Sit down and take about 5 minutes, and just make a list of all the possible things you would love to do. Now take out the whole issue of how much does it pay or would people pay for this and all of that. Just make a list of all those things that you would love to do… in terms of work, in terms of what you would love sharing, in terms of what your gifts and talents are. And then choose one or two that are at the top of your list and ask yourself how you can begin to do those things or move toward those things in your life… regardless of whether or not you’re working at those things now.
So that’s my tip for today or that’s my answer for this question for today. I know that some of you are really struggling with finances, so in the next video I’m going to talk a little bit about how you survive for naturally as a projector while you’re waiting for that great invitation. So until the next time go ahead and do the assignment, leave a post on my blog or e-mail me and let me know what you came up with. I look forward to hearing from you and I look forward to talking to you again real soon!
