200. Exploring the Depths of Emotional Authority With Kristin Quattlebaum

200. Exploring the Depths of Emotional Authority With Kristin Quattlebaum
On top of that, I'm so excited to welcome back Kristin Quattlebaum to That Projector Life. Kristin is a 1/3 Emotional Projector, and in this episode, she's sharing how she's learned and grown since we last spoke with her. (I highly recommend checking out Kristin's first TPL interview. It's episode 85.) We talk a lot about emotions and emotional healing as Kristin shares about her approach to working with her emotional authority. She also walks us through the idea of a secondary authority and how that influenced her ability to connect with and work with her emotional authority. This was such a fun episode, and Kristin shares so much insight into the workings of the Solar Plexus and her own experiences with it. If you or someone you know is an emotional authority, I definitely recommend giving this episode a listen and reflecting on the power of emotions. And even if you're like me and don't have an emotional authority, Kristin's approach to emotions is definitely one worth reflecting on - because we do experience emotions.   Kristin's Links TPL085 - https://www.thatprojectorguide.com/tpl085/   Special Session - https://kqunplugged.as.me/tpl   Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/rewildingkq   Website - www.kqunplugged.co     Episode Links Check out the Projector Pivot Challenge and start working with your energy in just 12 days!

196. Exploring the Layers of Human Design With Leann Wolff

196. Exploring the Layers of Human Design With Leann Wolff
We have a super special guest on That Projector Life this week! Human Design Professional and BG5 Business & Career Consultant Leann Wolff is joining us to talk about all thing Human Design. We start off by discussing the Mani-Gen/Projector relationship and how it differs from that of a Generator/Projector one. (Those of you with both Mani-Gens and Generators in your house, take some notes.)  Then we move into talking about money, business, and manifesting as a Projector. And this is a huge topic, but Leann really did an amazing job of offering guidance on where we can look in our chart to determine the best path forward. She also shares her view that Projectors have a special connection with the quantum field due to our aura, something that comes into play when we talk about manifesting.  Leann also talked about Cognition and how we can use that to give us greater depth on whether or not an invitation is correct for us. We dove into my Smell cognition and discussed how I can literally smell invitations, something I'll definitely be leaning into in my own experiment.  If you want to connect more with Leann, check out her links below!

195. Understanding the Creative Cycle in Human Design
11-10-2023
195. Understanding the Creative Cycle in Human Design
We're exploring the creative cycle, what it looks like, and how it shows up throughout the Human Design chart. (Notice that we're using the word "cycle" instead of "process" - that's going to be a big thing in this episode.) The creative cycle is a mysterious, sometimes frustrating thing to deal with. However, we'll explore the mechanics of it with some help from the Gene Keys system.  We'll dive into Gates 1 and 2 (a.k.a. Gene Keys 1 and 2) to talk about how and where they contribute to the creative cycle. Then, we'll look at how the creative cycle itself shows up in our lives - and what to do when we're in the shadow or winter part of it. (The answer here likely isn't going to be what you expect.) Finally, we'll zoom out and look at the Human Design chart to explore how creativity shines through the different centers.  And we'll hammer home the idea that inconsistency is ok - and it's actually how the centers work. (Not even the Sacral center is going to be on all the time. It also needs to rest.) Even if you don't feel like a creative soul, give this episode a listen - because I promise the creative cycle shows up in your life. You just may not be aware of it yet.  Episode Links Become a Patron and get access to exclusive content + early access to TPL episodes!

193. 5 Things to Do When You Dislike Your Design

193. 5 Things to Do When You Dislike Your Design
Have you been trying - and failing - to connect with your Human Design? Are you sometimes frustrated - or angry - with your design? How about just plain disliking it? In this episode, we'll address all of those feelings and go through some action steps you can take to begin to connect with your design.  It's important to note that not everyone connects with their design instantly. For some people, it can be a struggle to see themselves in their design. And it can feel rather lonely when you're feeling frustrated with your design while watching other people fall in love with theirs. While these action steps may not help you change your perception or feelings toward your chart overnight, they'll hopefully give you a place to start if you're ready to connect with your chart.  Ultimately, the biggest thing to keep in mind is to give yourself time and space to feel and process what you need to. If you feel like you're forcing things by doing this work, then take a step back and return at a later time. It's ok to take space if things aren't feeling correct.

191. How to Make Money as a Projector
30-08-2023
191. How to Make Money as a Projector
In this episode, we're talking about a topic that pretty much every Projector I talk to asks me about: Money. Because making money as an aligned Projector is both straightforward and non-linear (rather like being a Projector, right?). It's possible for Projectors to make money as their true selves - but it will likely take some reprogramming.  And that's where this episode comes in. We'll talk about some steps you can take to begin shifting your understanding of money and how you relate to it. We'll look at your mindset and your energy around money and talk about how those impact your Projector journey. We'll also talk about how our Projector strategy and authority come into play when it comes to making money. And yes, we'll also talk about following your bliss because that's really important, too.  I'm under no illusion that this single episode will completely overhaul your relationship with money. That's not what it's here for. This episode is meant to plant some seeds - to help you change your perspective and to begin a new understanding of how your Projector energy is tied to money. Take what I say here with a grain of salt and find what works for you.  Episode Links Note: My links have changed since this episode dropped! (I've just moved platforms).

190. Human Design and the Power of Active Listening With Victoria Fragoso
Join me and my guest, Victoria Fragoso, as we talk about all things listening. We haven't talked much about listening on the podcast, and this episode aims to remedy that. Listening is such an important skill to develop. It enables us to really see - and hear - the other person. Being a good listener makes people feel like they matter - and that's an incredible gift to offer.  As Projectors, we're so often convinced that we know what to do and what others need, but it's also important to actually stop and listen to them. Victoria has fantastic suggestions that Projectors can use to help us hone our listening skills. And she shares her insights in actionable ways. Hearing Victoria speak about the importance of listening was so fun. I walked away with a lot to think about - and improve - when it comes to being a better listener.  Ready to brush up on your listening skills?

189. 7 Challenges Projectors Face (And How to Overcome Them)

189. 7 Challenges Projectors Face (And How to Overcome Them)
Look, I think being a Projector is awesome. But I also know that sometimes it can suck. And because I believe in looking at both the awesome and the not-so-awesome, we're diving into 7 challenges Projector face. However, we won't just talk about the challenges - we'll also talk about how Projectors can move through those challenges and overcome them.  Because every challenge we come across is a learning opportunity. It gives us a chance to learn more about our energy, the world around us, and how we really want to move through it. And while you will see the top-of-mind challenges like waiting, making money, and burnout, we'll also talk about some other challenges that don't get quite as much attention.  As you listen to the episode, notice where you feel a lot of frustration or resonance with a particular challenge. And then take what I recommend for overcoming that challenge and tweak it to work for you and your energy. It's ok to say that things are difficult or hard - and it's ok to give yourself the space to process them. But after that, it's time to shift and move past that challenge - in alignment with your Projector energy.    Episode Links Note: My links have changed since this episode dropped!

188. How to Understand Relationships Using Human Design

188. How to Understand Relationships Using Human Design
In this episode, I'm joined by 6/2 Manifesting Generator Stacy Gissal, and we're talking all about relationships. Looking at - and talking about - relationship charts in Human Design is Stacy's jam. So that's what we're doing!  Stacy gives us a great walk through the Human Design relationship chart and shares the different types of energy dynamics we'll come across and how they can play out in our lives. She also points out that you can't always change how the energy works, so it's important to understand these dynamics. (Also, looking at and understanding your relationship chart can create a lot of "ah-ha" moments for you.)  We also talked about how to support your partner, friend, or child when their design is completely different from yours. And here, Stacy's emotional authority really shone. She offers some great strategies and tips for people without an emotional authority when it comes to living - and working with - an emotional authority. And she rightly points out that it really comes down to respect. Trusting the person you're living with is really important.  This was such a fun and enlightening walk through the Human Design relationship chart. I hope it helps shed some new light on your relationships with others.

187. What Does Work Look Like for Projectors?
In this episode, we're talking about work and Projectors. This tends to be a complicated, personal, and nuanced topic. But we'll do our best to cover everything. We'll look at how Projector energy works and how it differs from Generator energy (and why that matters).  We'll also create a space to reflect on our feelings around work and explore how Projectors energy contributes to the world. Oftentimes, it's not that Projectors need to do more or work harder. It's that we need to change our mindset and frame of reference when it comes to work. Projectors may not be here to work in the traditional sense, but we are here to contribute.  What we offer is unique to our design, so spend time with your channels and reflect on what you want to offer the world. You know what you want to do (even if you can't quite mentally describe it). And reflect on how your energy wants to work - or offer itself to the world.    Episode Links Note: My links have changed since this episode dropped! (I've just moved platforms).

186. Let's Talk About Invitations (Again)
We're once again revisiting invitations in this episode. But we're not talking about how they work, the energetic mechanics at play, or anything else in that vein. We're actually going to be addressing the more abstract (but equally important) questions around invitations like: What's my understanding of invitations? How did I arrive at that? Is my understanding the correct one? And more!  This episode was actually sparked by an email that I received, and I'm so excited to dive into these questions. We will go into invitations a bit as I outline my philosophy behind them. But we'll spend more time answering how I arrived at my understanding of invitations and whether or not it's the correct one (spoiler alert: I don't know - but it works for me).  So if you had questions along these lines, hopefully this episode will answer at least some of them. And if you have more questions that I didn't answer, let me know.    Episode Links Note: My links have changed since this episode dropped! (I've just moved platforms).

185. Exploring the 5th Line's Impact With Miran
In this episode of That Projector Life, I have a fantastic chat with Miran, a 5/1 Self-Projected Projector. And our conversation touches on a little of everything. Miran shares a lot of his experience being a Self-Projected Projector and how he's learned to decondition and step into being himself. He also touches on his experience of being a 5/1 profile.  It was so neat to listen to Miran share how his 5th line show up in his life and how he's handled it. I learned a lot listening to him speak on these experiences. If you have a 5th line profile, or if you know someone who does, what Miran shares will be incredibly helpful.  We also talked about the not-self and how Miran has learned to clarify what is and isn't his. At the end, he walks us through an exercise we can do to help move away from energy that isn't ours and back into our peace and power. It was so powerful to hear!  If you want to connect with Miran - and check out his not-self course - all of his links are listed below.    Miran's Links Website - https://raphaelsabitzer.com/  Spotify - https://open.spotify.com/show/3YmyfafLvK1oU7NPblWQbm Apple Podcasts - https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/florescence/id1653234944 The Not-Self Training -

183. How to Work With Coaches
In this episode, we're covering a few different things relating to coaches and how to work with them. We'll talk about whether or not Projectors can and should hire non-Projector coaches as well as how to prepare for working with them. (Spoiler alert: They really need to be able to recognize you in order for things to go well.)  But there are lots of great experiences that Projectors can have with non-Projector coaches - experiences that you wouldn't have with a Projector coach. It's a great way to learn how to work with a different type - and to see how that type operates.  We'll also talk about working with a Projector coach and why that can be helpful to do at least once in your journey. Ultimately, which coach you decide to work with is a highly personal decision - and not one to make lightly. As always, follow your authority and energy. They won't lead you astray.    Episode Links Note: My links have changed since this episode dropped! (I've just moved platforms).

182. What HD Marketing Doesn't Tell You

182. What HD Marketing Doesn't Tell You
Marketing is an important part of being in business. If you don't marketing your products and services, you don't make as much money. And business need to make money. But marketing is also here for another reason: to solve problems. Marketing allows a business to get their solution (or system in the case of Human Design) into people's hands. And naturally, when we market, we want to polish everything. We want it to be shiny and exciting. However, marketing tends to gloss over some difficult truths when it pushes out its product, service, or system. And this tendency isn't just limited to Human Design marketing. Every marketing team worth their salt is going to focus on the benefits of their solution...not the hard work that it takes to achieve those benefits. And that's where this episode comes in. We're diving into some of the hard truths about the Human Design system that are often brushed over in online marketing (my own included). So let's dive in and look at the things we need to know when in the presence of marketing.   Episode Links Note: My links have changed since this episode dropped! (I've just moved platforms).

181. 3 Things to Know About the Incarnation Cross
17-05-2023
181. 3 Things to Know About the Incarnation Cross
We're talking about Incarnation Crosses in this episode of That Projector Life. The Incarnation Cross is something I get lots of questions on, which makes sense. It's something people want to know more about, but there doesn't tend to be a lot of information readily available online. So we're going to talk about what you need to know about your Incarnation Cross and how you can approach it.  Yes, your Incarnation Cross is your life's purpose (though I really like thinking of it as story beats for your life - kind of like an outline that you can flesh out on your own). But that's not all there is to it. Many people want to know exactly what they're supposed to do in life, and the Incarnation Cross just doesn't provide that kind of specificity. (Don't believe me? I break down my Incarnation Cross in this episode and then create a story out of it. And not once do I mention podcasting or being an entrepreneur.)  If you're interested in learning more about your Incarnation Cross, this episode will give you some great things to keep in mind and help you understand a little more about how to approach this important part of your chart.    Episode Links Note: My links have changed since this episode dropped!
