Most metaphysical and religious people are taught and continually asked to project energy, light, and love to all those around them. We live with many different dualities in our three-dimensional world. Many metaphysical people project their thoughts, energies, and ideas, so that other people will know who and what they are. Many people, when in love, seeking a job, creating, helping, or healing others, end up projecting energetic parts of themselves outside of their own space, hoping to control and interact with others.
I have also observed that the energetic fields of most people are out several hundred yards. To keep themselves energetically safe, they built a barrier around themselves by pushing their energies outward. Another reason for having their fields pushed out is that they are not safe being fully in their bodies.
An interesting phenomenon occurs when we project anything to anybody outside of our personal spaces, no matter how innocent or well-meaning our original intentions might be. By projection, I mean sending to others ideas, meditations, prayers, thoughts, or feelings in an effort to influence them physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually.
For instance, if I project love onto you, it would be my idea of love, not yours. The projection is really not love - it is energy. This energy would immediately cause some form of distortion within you and result in an interaction between us. Most of us are doing well just to know what we are learning on a soul level. Even if I believe that I am projecting positive energy onto you, if you have not asked for it, a part of you may subconsciously feel a type of psychic intrusion or personal judgment, because part of you may not be in alignment or balance with whatever energy I am sending to you.
