Putting the spotlight on the Projector aura type this week - if you have no idea what an aura type is and want to catch yourself up - click here to learn about aura type, strategy and authority.

If you're not sure of your aura type, you can pull up your free bodygraph chart here.

Projectors are the guides of our time, here to usher in a new age of being. They are the newest of the aura types and about 20% of people make up the Projector population. The Projector aura absorbs the energy of others, penetrating auras that come within its presence one by one.

Projectors are considered ‘non-energy’ types, meaning that they

  • do not have a defined sacral centre, and,

  • do not have a channel bridging a motor to the throat centre (motors refer to the sacral, heart, solar plexus and root centres).

This means that Projectors take in and amplify the energy of the people they surround themselves with.

As such, Projectors should be wary with their energy. They can be incredibly productive by using and amplifying the energy of others, but sustaining such an effort will lead to eventual burn-out. Ideally, Projectors work best in environments that allow them to work in spurts, taking breaks and rests when possible.


Because of the Projector’s ability to take in and absorb the energy around them, Projectors become especially good at understanding and gauging the energy of others. This allows them to feel into a person or situation and thus give relevant guidance and direction to others.

Projectors are here to be seen, for both their unique depth and for their ability for sound counsel. Their very genetics cause a longing for recognition, recognition that brings them eventual success. However, Projectors need to learn to wait for just that, recognition, before they share their insights.

Waiting for an invitation is the Projector’s strategy. It’s when a Projector has been acknowledged for their wisdom, and invited to share their ideas or understanding of things, that their discernments are appreciated. In fact, when a Projector shares their knowledge or perspective and it hasn’t been invited, it is often dismissed, resented or misinterpreted, thus leading to a feeling of bitterness.

As a Projector, myself, how true this rings. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made a suggestion to somebody that totally disregards it, only to have that same person adopt that behaviour, claim it as their own and then suggest that I do it. The resentment is real!


Projectors are designed to see success, which will bring them a sense of deep fulfillment. To see themselves to success, it helps greatly when they can become masters of knowledge. If you’re a Projector, finding what it is that makes you tick, and gaining a deep level of understanding on that subject (or subjects) will see that you’re ready when the invitation comes.

When it comes to career, putting yourself in a situation where you can be recognized and called on for your expertise will see that the invitations flock in. Projectors make great solopreneurs, coaches, consultants and even politicians.

Marketing yourself in a fashion that allows people to see you as the one with the answers will ensure people recognize your ability for guidance. However, and this is a big however, this doesn’t mean you have to accept all invitations! Be sure you’re consulting your authority to determine which invitations it is that are best for you to accept. Just because you’ve been invited, doesn’t mean you need to share your valuable wisdom.


If you’re a Projector - here’s an exercise for you to try and contemplate

  1. Bite your tongue for a while, see who recognizes you and who doesn’t. Your very aura is genetically designed to see that you get noticed by the right people. If somebody doesn’t take to you, they’re not somebody who will help you flourish anyways. Try not to take it to heart and wait for the next one.

  2. Share or agree once you’ve received an invitation, and after you’ve consulted your authority. Depending on your authority, this might mean playing hard to until you can gain some clarity. If somebody asks you on a date, for example, and you have emotional authority, tell them you have to check your calendar and get back to them later. Get your clarity first.

  3. Notice what happens! You should find that the caliber of people and experiences in your life goes up and that those people are able to see you for you, rather than for their projection of you, thus leading to much deeper fulfillment than you might have known otherwise.


  • You don’t need to be invited to everything. You can decide when you want to exercise and when you want to go to sleep. Waiting for the invitation really just pertains to any major life decisions - career, relationships, living situations etc.

  • You’re not here to prove anything, to anyone! Being recognized isn’t about proving yourself. You have incredible depth and the beautiful ability to see others for who they are, but not everybody holds that capacity. When you wait for the invitation, you allow others the time and space to see and appreciate you for who you are. It’s about being seen, not about proving your worthiness.

  • Take breaks! Go to bed early. Cleanse your energy. Spend time alone. You’re not designed to be a workhorse. You’re designed to guide the workhorse.

  • Have fun with it. This is an experiment - not a life rule! Experiment with it and see how it goes. However, you might find that you turn it into a life rule as you learn the success and fulfillment it brings to you - but that’s up to you.
