“A projection is a very real thing. It’s real energy. If I’m projecting onto my man my adoration of him, that energy is like crutches holding him up.
My energy is supporting him. If I take that projection away, suddenly he’s without crutches, so it’s a terrifying moment in a relationship; he not only loses the image he thinks he loves but loses the powerful support of the projection.
Conscious women (and men) are pulling back the adoring projection. It hurts but it’s much healthier. It lets a man (or woman) be who he is, a human being trying to find himself, just as the woman is. It allows for real love.” – from Conscious Femininity by Marion Woodman
This podcast starts as a discussion of this quote, but turns to something march larger: what relationship, what love, true love can look like when we approach it from a place of wholeness.
This is where romantic love and self love meet and merge to allow all participants to be more fully, more joyfully, more divinely themselves. This is when love serves the highest good of everyone.
Sabrina Lynn also announces the long awaited FREE 7-Day ReUnion Challenge, in which we will do the work of becoming whole, and see how it ripples out in our careers, our relationships, and our life’s purpose.

Discussion of Marion Woodman’s Quote:
7:30 – Discussion of, “A projection is a very real thing. It’s real energy. If I’m projecting onto my man my adoration of him, that energy is like crutches holding him up.”
9:40 – Discussion of, “My energy is supporting him. If I take that projection away, suddenly he’s without crutches, so it’s a terrifying moment in a relationship; he not only loses the image he thinks he loves but loses the powerful support of the projection.”
11:40 – Discussion of, “Conscious women (and men) are pulling back the adoring projection. It hurts but it’s much healthier. It lets a man (or woman) be who he is, a human being trying to find himself, just as the woman is. It allows for real love.”
How projections hold us back from experiencing self love and true love:
15:00 – What projections look like in relationship.
16:20 – What wholeness could look like in relationship.
20:35 – Self reflection: what expressions do I source from outside myself? Nurturer? Protector? Aliveness? Reliableness?
24:15 – Just because one has access to an expression, doesn’t mean they are always expressing it. But they can, and they can also receive it without distortion.
25:00 – Projections are often places where we have rubble in the line that is both blocking our pure expression, as well as our receiving of that expression.
27:00 – Self reflection: where are our internal feminine & masculine judging each other?
Markers of healthy vs harmful projection:
29:30 – Sign posts of unhealthy projection.
30:00 – Example: Adoration vs appreciation
32:10 – It’s not black and white. Sometimes projection serves and sometimes it doesn’t. It’s all about knowing what each feels like.
33:25 – Example of an art teacher who projected onto Sabrina in a way that served her, and helped her through a hard time in her life.
37:35 – Self reflection: what does it feel like when someone is projecting on to you, and it serves your highest self?
43:05 – Self reflection: what does it feel like when you project onto someone and you know it serves?
46:00 – What it feels like when you’re projecting and it doesn’t serve.
47:35 – How to tell we are projecting in a harmful way even when it feels like we are doing it with good intentions.
48:40 – What to do when you catch yourself projecting: have compassion for yourself! If you judge yourself, you will hide it from yourself even more, and never address it.
50:25 – We’ll be talking about this more in our Facebook group, feel free to join us there and invite your friends!

Welcome to ReWilding for Women!
ReWilding For Women is a sacred container, a resource center, a women’s circle.
It was created by women for women, to help us peel back inauthentic layers we have absorbed from the society around us. To guide us along the path of feminine awakening and soul reclamation. To teach us to trust what we already know…
That sacredness, that magic, that endless love comes from within, not from without.
Our practices incorporate tantra, shamanism, astrology, meditation, archetypal embodiment, and personal inquiry that come through via words, transmissions, and activations. They take us far beyond our day-to-day worries and limitations of the mind, and deep into the wisdom of the body, the self, the soul. Into ancient spaces. Into your soul gifts and your everlasting connection with the universe around you.
Join the ReWilding Community!
Join us in sacred circle LIVE (almost) every Saturday! Sit with like-minded friends from around the world as we dive in to spiritual growth, the divine feminine way! Topics range from dark goddess shadow work, to higher self personal growth, to tantra and sacred union. We hope to see you there!
Sign up for our bi-monthly newsletter with astrology insights, words of wisdom from Sabrina Lynn, and monthly sales & free offerings — crafted with care so it serves your awakening rather than clogs your inbox. When you do, you will also get access to a free, hour-long ReWilding workshop exploring the Divine Feminine!
Finally, consider working directly with Sabrina Lynn for a year in our Advanced Women’s Immersion Program. This year-long exploration will profoundly change how you give, serve, love, and create in this world. It will take you beyond the barriers of your own self-limiting expectations and habits and into new levels of sacred self-expression–a truth that is so bold, so heart-connected, and so free that it can be scary…!
Huge love and thank you for being a part of the community!
Sabrina Lynn and the ReWilding Team
