Wait for an Invitation – Zeno Speaks about Human Design Projectors

Questions always come up in our Projector Teleconferences about the strategy of waiting for invitations.  The black and white guideline that Projectors must wait for an invitation before  taking action can often create more confusion than clarity.  The bottom line is that when you are able to observe yourself in relation to others, the clarity about how and when to wait… and why you are waiting becomes clear.

The explanation provided in this video by Zeno about waiting provides some information for you to find your own clarity.  Zeno of Zen Human Design is a mental Projector with a defined throat.  She was one of the original U.S. students of Ra Uru Hu, and as the result of observing how the instruction of Human Design changed from the original she developed her own clarity about understanding the Human Design Chart.

Is Barack Obama a Burnt Out Human Design Projector?

Human Design Barack Obama

Barack Obama August 4, 1961 7:24 p.m. Honolulu, HI

As we enter into the end of the summer, a time when long awaited vacations are typically taken, it seems the President of the United States has met with much criticism for taking time out as tensions in the world and at home heat up.  Photos of Barack Obama’s golf swing pepper the media, fueling criticism that this president is lazy and ineffective in his approach to the many crises which potentially threaten the U.S..  In spite of the fact that he has taken markedly fewer vacation days than any other modern day president, it doesn’t seem to Improve upon the widespread perception that he is not doing his job.  Could it be that the lack of vacation time is actually working against him?

Regardless of your political feelings about President Barack Obama, there is much that can be learned from observing this 6/2 Projector’s experience.  So I’m going to put a few observations out here which are pertinent to all Human Design Projectors.

Unsustainable Work-Force Energy

In essence, the Projector’s purpose on earth is to guide and direct the people who actually have the sacral energy to do sustainable work in the world.  A Projector’s workflow needs to incorporate lots of space and time to recharge themselves, because it’s not about putting the nose to the grindstone for the Projector.  It’s about lightening up to let the innate wisdom that the Projector embodies surface and unfold.

We live in a world where 70% of the population has sustainable sacral energy to do the day to day, nose to the grindstone work.  That’s what they’re here for.  And if they are in work that’s right for them they can continue to do that work day after day, week after week, year after year with no problems.  It will actually energize them.  But it’s because the majority of people have this ability that our collective belief systems reinforce the idea that everyone must work relentlessly in order get something accomplished.  If you’re built that way it works for you.  If you’re not, you ultimately bring something else to the world that the sacral beings don’t have… a wisdom about what is worth working for, and how to go about doing it in the most beneficial ways.

As an open sacral being, Mr. Obama (as well as other Projectors) need their down-time. When the Projector doesn’t get the time to relax and play they get very burned out.  This burnout isn’t something that is easy to come back from.  It has the potential to affect the Projector at very deep physical and emotional levels.  Now here’s the interesting catch 22. Often the Projector knows deep down inside what they need in order to do their best.  But if they’re in a traditional situation which expects them to show up day after day and keep working and working and working like everyone else they may be reticent to honor their own needs.  If they’re caught doing what’s right for them by taking a break when others are working, they’re often heavily criticized for it, judged as lazy, and in many cases deeply resented.  And if the Projector keeps working in the way everyone else is working they ultimately become burned out and ineffective.  This subjects them to more criticism and judgement.

Is that what’s happening here?  What do you think?

Open Energy Centers and Burnout

The ability to take breaks from work is essential for the Projector, especially one who has as many open energy centers as Barack Obama.  All of those open energy centers are taking  in and amplifying energy from other people.  With this much openness, the potential to fry yourself out is huge!  This president is absorbing a multitude of influences from other people and the environment around him … work behaviors, fears, varying ideas and opinions .. just to name a few.  When Projectors don’t have sufficient alone time to discharge all this energetic “stuff”, they don’t ever fully get back to themselves and the true wisdom within them. They start to act like those around them in intensified ways.  And eventually they just crash.

Do you think this President is in the midst of a crash?

Energy Comes With the Right Invitations

Projectors are here to manage, guide and direct others when invited.  If ever there was a position of leadership for managing, guiding and directing, it is the office of the president of the United States.  The issue of invitation is, in my opinion, the most fascinating thing about Barack Obama’s presidency.  Half of the American population invited him to be president and the other half dramatically opposed him.

When Projectors enter into large things which require a lot of time, energy and commitment they need to be invited into it.  The more formal the invitation the better.  And just because the Projector was invited doesn’t mean that it’s the correct invitation.  The correct invitation recognizes and upholds the innate gifts that the Projector has and sets the stage for them to use those gifts for the benefit of those who invited him.  Inherent in the invitation are the resources, support and sustenance to carry out that role.

So did he enter into he presidency in the correct way?  Was he really invited?  Is this the correct invitation for him?  And does he truly have the support that the right invitation would afford him to be a success at his work?

Of course there are other markers in Barack Obama’s Human Design chart which are very specific to him and the dynamics that he is here to live out.  But the issues discussed in this post today can set up any Projector for burn out.  So as you read this and get your own insights about potential burnout and the presidency, ask yourself how you may be experiencing these issues in your own life.

Are you a burnt out Projector?  What dynamics contributed to your burnout?  What issues in this post do you see in your own life?

One Thing That Gets in the Way of Projector Invitations

At the first of the year I made a commitment to myself to experience more creativity, adventure and flow in my life.  And last week I got an amazing invitation which allows me to express these intentions and share its fruits with others.  I don’t know why invitations which bring everything together in my life still astound me.  Perhaps it is the Generator conditioning that keeps telling this isn’t the way things work for most people.  I know that many of you struggle with the invitation issue, so each time I hear of someone getting a great invitation or I get one, I like to go back and retrofit how they came about.  During the latest retrofitting session aimed at this invitation I discovered something crucial which gets in the way of Projectors getting great invitations. I call it “limiting my possibilities by thinking I know myself”…. or “putting myself in a box of so called self knowledge”.

This invitation involves music, healing, meditation, improvisation… something very different yet somehow related to the soul mapping of Human Design.  I had been thinking along those lines for a while, but my idea (which I kept to myself) was extremely limited compared to the brilliance of the idea of the beloved Generator whose aura I showed up in for him to respond to me and invite me to collaborate.  When I kept my “box” to myself and didn’t force my limited idea of what I thought was right for me onto the world, the giddy, life-giving, soul-soothing perfect invitation came gushing forth. …. almost by surprise!

It’s not just the box or the limitation which gets in the way of the Projector invitation.  It’s thinking that I know myself when I don’t really.  This example illustrated that completely.  No one can know the Human Design Projector… and the Projector can’t really know him/herself.  We live in a projection field from which we peer out and observe the individuals in our world.  It’s the mind that thinks it knows what’s best when it doesn’t.  This recent invitation made that clear.

This video from Devin at http://ahumandesignperspective.com  confirmed my epiphany and may explain some things to you.

How Projectors Can Recognize Good Invitations

InvitationWe had our first Projector Empowerment Call on August 8th and I was blown away by the energy. As one of the members put it: “Wow, the energy really picked up pretty easily and quickly and was really high at the end!

Our topic was invitations… How to recognize good ones. I shared some information and examples about the ins and outs of good invitations (which can be found in the pdf handout on the membership page), and then everyone else jumped in. It was an evening of ideas, real life examples, food for thought (and practice) and clarity.

Invitations are essential for success as a Projector.  We can’t do without them.  It’s like getting a big break into your true life.  When you follow your strategy to wait for them you start to attract them with relative ease.  Sometimes the good ones aren’t easily recognizable.  Sometimes you can dismiss an invitation which is really right for you.  And all too often, because at first the are far and few between, you accept invitations which aren’t right for you.

Do you know how to recognize a good invitation which honors the real you and your energy levels?  Have you ever accepted an invitation which seemed like a good idea at first and ended up draining you?

It’s not too late to get really good at finding and accepting the right invitations that allow you to use your Projector magic.  The recorded call and worksheet are archived on our special private membership page.  When you join us in the Projector Empowerment Program you will have access to this and so much more.

So this is your official invitation to join us.  We had so much fun and were so productive and uplifted by this first call that we would really love to keep the love, learning and collaboration alive by sharing it with you!
