Because of its likeness to its Creator, the Soul is creative.
No Child of God can lose this ability because it is inherent in what he is, but he can use it inappropriately.
Whenever projection is used inappropriately, it always implies that some emptiness or lack exists and that it is in your ability to put your own ideas there instead of truth:
First, the assumption that what God created can be changed by your mind.
Second, the concept that what is perfect can be rendered imperfect or wanting is accepted.
Third, the belief that you can distort the creations of God, including yourself, is accepted.
Fourth, the idea that since you can create yourself, the direction of your own creation is up to you.
These related distortions represent a picture of what occurred in the separation of you from your Soul.
