Projection is a native human dynamic that we all engage in. It is the act of unconsciously seeing “out there” what we are thinking and feeling within our own minds. We see it out there and mistakenly believe that the external situation is the cause of our feelings without realizing that we are merely seeing our own beliefs-made-flesh.
Projection does not make us wrong, bad or sick. It’s the thing that in doing, shows us our own limiting stories. When we are miffed or impatient with others, we learn to examine our thoughts and feelings closely to find that part of ourselves that’s being reflected in the situation that has us disturbed. There’s always an opportunity to grow being offered. This is VERY good news. 🙂
