How Projection REALLY Works

Hey Old Souls,
I had a giant epiphany the other day that totally made the whole 'projection' mechanism make sense - and wanted to share the insight with you.
For those that have been on the healing / shadow work path for a while now, you'll recognize the term projection, but for those new to it...
Projection is a coping mechanism we all subconsciously do. How it's commonly known to work goes like this:
I don't want to feel (emotion - let's go with anger). So since I have repressed this anger, then I tend to find everyone around me to be angry (I'm projecting my own anger out onto them).
And while this isn't exactly wrong, I now see that this is NOT the whole picture!
So if you want to hear the full epiphany, watch my rambling video about it below :)
I hope this insight lights up some deep healing work inside of you like it did for me!
