SPIRITUAL LAWS - The Law of PROJECTION

Updated on September 20, 2010

The Spiritual Law of PROJECTION

All aspects of ourselves are reflected back to us. All that we perceive outside self is a mirror of something within. Therefore, everything that we see outside is a ‘projection’.

We project our energy, both positive and negative, onto other people and assume it is within them, often denying that it is within us.

Every time you say the words ‘you are’ or ‘he is’ or ‘she is/he is’, you are projecting something of yourself onto someone else.

When we assume that someone else feels as we do, it is a projection. For example, statements such as ‘you must feel awful about that’, or ‘you must be so happy …’ are both projections. You are putting your feelings on to the other person.

We project our fears on to the world. It is more comfortable to imagine that someone else has the qualities we wish to deny are within ourselves.

‘When one witch warns you that another witch is evil –

Beware the witch who warned you.’

‘It takes one to know one.’

‘A pot calling the kettle black’.

If you burying your hostility and express it as passive anger, you will project hostility on to those around you and will imagine that people are aggressive whether they are or not. You will selectively imagine angry or threatening attitudes where none are intended or expressed. Those who project their hatred/anger/rage think everyone is out to get them.

We project our insecurities and our sexuality on to others. The person who is paranoid about the morality of others is projecting their own underlying immorality.

Someone who suspects that all around him are cheating him is projecting his inner cheat. As a consequence he may attract cheats into his life.

Someone who accuses their partner of being unfaithful is projecting their own lack of faith in the relationship.

On the positive side, we also project our gracious, powerful, beautiful and brilliant qualities on to others. Every time you think or say good, positive things about people, you are projecting your own qualities within.

We project our love on to others. A person who is kind will imagine that all around them are also kind, and will attract this energy into their life.

Projecting yourself on to someone else prevents you from taking responsibility for Self. Most people do not even realize that what they are saying is actually within them. It is a powerful form of denial.
