What is Human Design?
Human Design tells us how our energetic bodies move and operate in the world.
It pinpoints the way in which our energy flows naturally and inherently through us individually. It is the science of differentiation - supporting the widely accepted notion that none of us are the same.
What makes you uniquely you? What drives your soul forward and what is a reliable way for you to make decision? What are you here to accomplish and learn in this lifetime? These answers and more are revealed through our unique Human Designs.
Human Design combines the I-Ching, Astrology, Hindu Chakra System, and the Kabbalah System all into one and has been proven by science and our DNA to be an accurate representation of our energetic body and aura.
In Human Design, every person falls into a category of one of 5 Types - with their own unique combinations of strategy, authority, profile, and definition.
Knowing this information can provide deep insight into why we do what we do, what we need to stop doing (or de-condition from), and how we can move forward in our lives as our most magnetic, abundant and authentic self.
Generators are approximately 37% of the population. They produce their own energy, and when doing something they love - they can work on it for hours with a seemingly endless supply of energy. They are here to work on what lights them up, and in turn, light up others and the world around them.
Approximately 7% of the population - Manifestors are here to create and give their creations to the world. Their strategy is To Inform and they thrive when they do just that.
They are not here to "do" in the same way as a Generator or a ManGen. By creating new things and creating what THEY want in the moment, they "do" the best service to themselves and the world.
Approximately 33% of the population - Manifesting generators are a mix of a generator and a manifestor! When doing what they love they have a super human ability to create things and then see them through to completion. Like the generator, they are here to do what lights them up and light up the world around them - and they can be extremely efficient because of their ability to manifest new things.
Approximately 21% of the population - Projectors are here to act as guides for the world around them. Every projector has the ability to see things in a way that others cannot, and with their penetrating aura, they have the ability to connect with other energies very well. Projector's greatest desire it to be recognized for their unique gifts and to share their guidance with the world. Once recognized, projectors can have an incredible impact on the world around them.
Projectors do not create their own energy, and rather fuel off of the energy of those around them. It is vital for their health to prioritize having a lot of rest. They can burn out very easily, and because they are so productive when they have energy, they really should only be "working" 2-3hrs a day, and spend the rest of their time resting or honing their skills. This will bring them success and abundance in life.
Approximately 1% of the populations - Reflectors have a completely open chart. This allows them the potential of being the wisest among the types as they can chameleon and take in the energies of those around them through all of their open centers. This also means that they have the potential for being very conditioned.
They are here to sample, reflect and judge the environment around them with a unique wisdom that only they possess though their experience of feeling the world around them. They amplify and mirror other people's energy in a completely non-judgmental way. It is key for them to learn how to live as themselves instead of living as an amplified version of the world around them. They are here to move humanity into a just, peaceful and cooperative global community having great wisdom and discernment.
We each have our own Strategy and our own unique Authority.
The goal is to decondition ourselves and Live by our Strategy and make Decisions with our Authority.
Emotional - Solar Plexus Authority
Give yourself time
Those with an emotional authority need to take their time in making major decisions. Their motto should be "let me think about it" or "I'll get back to you". This time allows them to settle their emotions to a neutral place to then find clarity in what decision to make. Unlike other authorities, those with emotional authorities will not benefit from making spontaneous decisions. This may work for them every now and then, however, it will not be a consistent and reliable way for them to make energetically correct decisions. If they make a decision in the moment when they are excited, happy, or upset - they may regret the decision they've made later on when they get calm clarity on the matter.
It is important for them to ride out their unique emotional wave (your chart can tell which emotional wave you have) and then act from a place of neutrality. This waiting period can come across as very alluring and attractive to those waiting for you to make a decision as this is in flow with your seductive energy and others can feel that magnetically.
Experimenting with this form of decision making will reveal to you just how powerful it can be for you to wait.
Respond in the moment!
If you have Sacral Authority, this means that you need to respond to questions audibly, in the moment, to make decisions. If you audibly respond with an "ah-huh" (yes) or "uhn-uh" (no) when asked a yes or no question, you will have an answer that you can trust. If you respond with a "hmmm", that means you need more time or need to be asked in a different manner. This is always a reliable way for you to make decisions that are energetically correct for you.
Truth and clarity for this authority is found in the present moment (with a gut feeling or audible response) and is reliable in reducing resistance in your life and maximizing satisfaction.
Listen to your present intuition & body
For those with Splenic authority, it is crucial for them to stay in the present moment and to be deeply in tune with their body and its signals. They have a subtle, yet reliable intuition that they must use to make decisions in the moment. It is important for them to listen to their body and instincts, moment to moment, as they will "know" what is correct and safe for them and what is not. People with Splenic authority must practice trusting this inner wisdom/voice/signal, in the moment, as this is their truth and will bring ease and flow to their lives.
This authority and intuition is only in the present moment, meaning what was energetically correct for them now may not be tomorrow - and that is okay! Those with Splenic authority should allow themselves the freedom to change their mind and go a different direction if they choose. If they can release the societal judgement and conditioning to "finish what you start", they will thrive and live a more magnetic and free life.
Heart Center - Ego Manifested Authority
Trust your voice
This authority is driven by the desire to manifest and to inform others. To be connected to their authority and truth, those with Ego Manifested authority must verbalize, in the moment, their truth without controlling or thinking about what to say. It is not about what they think they should say or inform others of, but rather what they say when they are not trying to control it.
They can trust their decisions based off of anything they "blurt out", unscripted, and then listening to what they said. What they say in the moment is their truth, rather than what their mind may be telling them.
This authority is meant to make an impact on the world, and if they can surrender to the truth of their voice, they will have their biggest impact on the world around them. This is always a reliable way for them to make decisions.
Heart Center - Ego Projected Authority
What's in it for you?
This is a special type of projector for whom it is really REALLY important to always wait for the invitation and trust in that process. Once invited or recognized - this is the only authority where it is energetically correct for them to be “selfish” in the sense of asking themselves “what’s in it for me”, “what do I want", or "how will I benefit”. They will then either have enough energy (or will) to do what they are asking themselves to do or they will not. The key is for them to trust that energy/will when they ask themselves these questions.
This “selfishness” is actually not selfish at all because they will make correct decisions for themselves, and that will best serve the people all around them.
Because they have a defined heart/ego center - it is important for them to finish things they start or finish what they committed to doing. This will bring them fulfillment and success. So it is VERY important that they only commit to things that will serve them and that they feel energized to do. Otherwise they will burn out.
Conditioning/society tells you that asking "what's in it for me?" is selfish - and for other authorities that may be true- but for people with an ego projected authority, it will actually serve the world around them as they will be in FLOW and make decisions that are energetically correct for them.
G Center - Self Projected Authority
Talk it out
Those with a G-Center authority often give direction to others, however, they can only hear their own direction by listening to what they themselves are saying in the moment. When making a decision, it is important for them to talk out-loud and listen to what they are saying.
This authority has a powerful voice of identity, however they cannot see their own identity directly on their own - they must hear their identity through their own voice. It is helpful for them to talk to friends/family to bounce their ideas off of them. This will allow them to hear how lit up/excited or unenthusiastic they are.
For those with this authority it is OKAY for them to ask others "who am I?" or "what should I do?", simply to allow them to hear themselves talk and find their truth. "Will this make me happy?" or "will this give me self expression?" are great questions for them to ask and hear if this decision makes them feel like themselves! Learning to trust their voice and not "think" their way to a decision is KEY for this authority.
Environment - Mental Projector Authority
Go to places you love
Those with Environmental authority receive guidance from the sensory information around them through all of the open centers in their chart. It is important for them to be in an environment that feels right and energetically expansive and safe for them. If an environment feels wrong to them, ideas shared there or decisions made there will not be correct for them either.
It is important, healthy and beneficial for them to visit new environments and then ask themselves "is this environment correct for me?" and then see and recognize within their body how it "feels" to be there. It is key for them to feel this in their body and not let their mind take over.
It is good for them to have friends/advisors, not to direct them in what to do, but rather to use as sounding boards to hear their own thoughts about a decision - but only in the right environment.
Give yourself a full lunar cycle
For those with Lunar authority it is best for them to give themselves a full lunar cycle (28 days) to make important decisions. If they make important decisions in the moment they will find dis-ease and disappointment in life. This 28 day cycle will allow them time to find the clarity they need and allow them to be delighted by life and slow down and appreciate the process. (This does not mean they need to wait a month to decide if they should get a coffee - they can have fun with the small decisions in life and allow themselves to be surprised and experience life - this is only for large important decisions in their life).
It is important for those with Lunar authority to be in a healthy environment and surround themselves with the right people as they mirror the environment and people around them. Having a close group of friends/advisors is good for them to bounce off of during this 28 day cycle, and by hearing themselves talk over time, they will come to a deep inner knowing of what they need to do.
