Human Design is a fascinating system that combines astrology, the I Ching, the Kabbalah, the chakra system and quantum physics to create a blueprint of your unique energetic makeup. One of the key elements of Human Design are the centers, which are like energetic hubs in your body, similar to the chakra system. Each center is responsible for processing specific energies and has a specific role to play in your overall design. Understanding how they work can be incredibly helpful in navigating your life.
There are nine centers in Human Design, and each one is associated with a different aspect of our lives.
Defined centers are the colored shapes on your bodygraph and have a stable and consistent energy that you can rely on. This energy is always available to support you and also affects those around you. While defined centers may have their own challenges, they are generally easier to handle compared to the sometimes intense experiences of open centers. To unleash the beauty and profound impact of your defined centers, it’s important to follow your human design strategy and live accordingly. This will empower you by providing a clear sense of what to do.
On the other hand, open centers are white, undefined and mutable. The energy in these centers is inconsistent and varies depending on your environment and mood.
The head center is linked to the pineal gland in the brain. It serves as the source of inspiration and constantly feels the pressure to provide answers. The specific questions that the head center tackles can vary, depending on the gates that define it. These questions can be abstract, logical, or unique to each individual. It is not motorized, but it has it is a pressure center.
The Open Head Center
If you have an Open Head Center, you don’t have a consistent way of receiving inspiration. So, when you do come across something inspiring, you tend to absorb and magnify it. It’s quite common for people with an Open Head Center to feel constantly inspired. Not only do you experience inspiration, but you also feel a sense of pressure to act upon it. As a result, it may appear to others that you’re unsure of what you’re doing or constantly jumping from one thing to another, trying various endeavors. Some people might suggest that you simply need to make decisive choices and stick with them.
However, those who understand their Open Head Center can develop a deep understanding of what truly inspires them. They can become wise in discerning which inspirations to act upon and which ones to simply observe without taking action.
Additionally, people with an Open Head Center also tend to take in the questions of the world and amplify them. This can sometimes make it challenging for them to make decisions.
Despite being flooded with inspirational energy and questions, the key to making good decisions is to follow your Strategy for your Type.
The Defined Head Center
When someone has a Defined Head Center, their energy is constantly active, making them a source of inspiration in the world. They naturally emit this inspiring energy outward, although they may not always be aware of it since it is energetic in nature.
Defined Head Centers have a reliable and steady flow of inspiration. They are always curious and tend to feel uneasy if they don’t have answers to their questions. Inspiration is a process of reflection. If you have a Defined Head Center, it’s important to process the questions you are receiving, but avoid relying on the answers to make decisions about your life.
People with Defined Head Centers may not realize that they are constantly questioning things. You might even notice a perpetual look of curiosity on their faces. It’s simply a characteristic of their consistent energy.
The Ajna Center, located in the anterior and posterior pituitary of the brain, serves as an awareness center. Its primary role is to research and conceptualization.
The Open Ajna Center
If someone has an Open Ajna Center, they have the ability to see multiple perspectives on any given issue. They tend to be fair, impartial, understanding, and open-minded. People with an Open Ajna Center often possess a strong intellectual capacity. Since their way of thinking is not fixed, they can process and comprehend information in various ways. When individuals with an Open Ajna Center are able to relax, they can even become great mind readers.
The challenge for those with an Open Ajna Center lies in “locking on to” a fixed idea or belief, as their natural inclination is to consider different layers and levels of understanding. It takes significant effort for them to hold onto a specific idea, and it may not come naturally to them. If you have an Open Ajna Center, you may have encountered advice urging you to make up your mind about something and stick to it. However, the beliefs you hold onto should be ones that you arrived at through following your Human Design Strategy and Authority.
The Defined Ajna Center
The Defined Ajna Center is intended to store and retain information. It is a dependable and consistent center, but its functioning is rigid in how it works. It’s important to remember that relying on the mind to make decisions is not advisable. While the mind is a valuable resource, no decisions should come from the mind.
The Throat Center is the square below the Ajna and Head Centers. It serves as the center for communication and tmanifestation into action.
The Open Throat Center
The way you communicate is influenced by the Definition of your Throat Center. People with Undefined or Open Throats often feel pressured to speak, which can be difficult in group settings or school environments. Those with an Open Throat may sometimes blurt out comments or answers without full awareness of their source, especially if their Ajna Center is also Undefined. However, there is a profound wisdom within the Open Throat. Many talented singers (like Celine Dion) and renowned speakers (like Bill Clinton) have Open Throat Centers. People with an Open Throat possess the ability to speak in different ways depending on the situation, and they can excel in speaking foreign languages or imitating others’ speech.
To maintain the health of the Open Throat, it is essential to align your speech with your Strategy. You can experiment with not talking at times. For instance, when attending a party or gathering, try refraining from speaking unless you have something specific to respond to or if you are invited into a conversation. By remaining silent, your aura will convey your message! Just observe and see how people can’t resist initiating conversations with you.
The Defined Throat Center
The Defined Throat Center is designed for speaking, but how it expresses itself is influenced by what it is connected to. Understanding the connections of the Throat Center is crucial in comprehending how you interact with others. For instance, if your Throat Center is connected to your Ajna Center, you can freely speak your thoughts. If your Throat Center is connected to your Emotional Solar Plexus, you have the ability to effectively communicate your feelings.
In order for those with a Defined Throat to be heard, it is essential that they engage in communication according to their respective Strategy: Manifesters and Manifesting Generators can initiate conversations, Generators need to respond to others, and Projectors should wait for an invitation to speak. Reflectors, on the other hand, will never have a Defined Throat Center.
Effective communication plays a vital role in personal and global well-being. By experimenting with living according to your Strategy, you can observe how it enhances the quality of your relationships.
The identity Center, sometimes called the “G Center” or the Magnetic Monopole, is the diamond in the middle of your human design chart. It is the place where the soul is seated, the center for love and direction, and is one of the most important centers in the Human Design System.
The Open Identity Center
Individuals who have an Open Identity Center possess a deep understanding of others’ sense of self and direction. They have the ability to absorb and amplify the identities of those around them, gaining valuable insights into different perspectives. Many professionals such as therapists, teachers, and intuitives often have an Open Identity Center.
Since the Identity Center governs direction, being in the right place at the right time holds paramount importance for individuals with an Open Identity Center. When they find themselves in the appropriate location, they experience a profound sense of alignment on a cellular level. It’s as if they breathe a sigh of relief, knowing they are in the right town, restaurant, or office. This alignment enables them to attract the right opportunities. Conversely, being in the wrong place affects them deeply, causing a sense of unease. In such instances, they may encounter unfavorable opportunities or none at all.
The expression of individuals with an Open Identity Center tends to vary depending on the person they are interacting with at the moment. This aspect becomes particularly important for parents of teenagers. Children with Open Identity Centers may appear more susceptible to peer pressure and may readily assimilate into cliques.
Due to their dynamic sense of self and personal direction, individuals with an open Identity Center often harbor fears of being unlovable. Their perception of themselves is ever-changing, thus influencing how they receive love. Consequently, children with Open Identity Centers may be more prone to self-esteem issues. Parents of such children often yearn for their child to “find themselves,” yet these individuals are not meant to embark on a self-discovery journey. Instead, they possess wisdom in experiencing others.
With an unlimited capacity to empathize with others, people with Open Identity Centers tend to forge diverse friendships with people from various backgrounds. They can effortlessly connect with both a drug dealer and a district attorney, as they see no reason why these two worlds should not intersect. Observing who attends an Open Identity Center’s social gathering proves to be a captivating study of humanity.
The Defined Identity Center
Having a Defined Identity Center implies that your purpose is to bestow love upon others. You likely possess a strong and unwavering sense of self. While you have a clear understanding of who you are and your direction in life, the specific path to reach your destination may not always be apparent.
Individuals who possess a complete Channel connecting their Identity Center to the Throat Center are particularly susceptible to criticism, as their creative expression stems directly from their core identity.
The Will Center is the small triangle located to the right of the diamond in the middle of the chart and is one of the four motor centers.
The Will Center is the motor that is responsible for bringing things forth on the material plane. It is part of the business circuitry in the Human Design system, and energetically it is all about value, allocation of resources, business management, and the energy to accomplish tasks, even during challenging circumstances.
The Open Will Center
Having an Open Will Center means that consistent willpower isn’t readily available to you, and it’s important to understand that this isn’t a flaw in your personality. Take solace in the fact that the majority of people lack willpower as well. In fact, about seven out of eight individuals don’t possess a Defined Will Center and thus don’t have reliable access to willpower.
When you have an Open Will Center, it becomes crucial to follow your Strategy when making commitments and promises. Failure to do so can result in expending energy you don’t possess and entering unfavorable situations where you feel obligated to follow through. It’s possible that you might also miss out on the right opportunities because you’re busy forcing yourself to do something you don’t want to do.
Since the Will Center is associated with matters of value and the material realm, it’s common for individuals with an open Will Center to underestimate their worth. They may tend to undercharge for their business services or even provide their services for free, even when not explicitly asked to do so. If you have an Open Will Center, it’s essential to research and ensure that you’re charging an appropriate amount by examining the prevailing rates for similar services. If you’re employed by someone else, make sure you’re being compensated fairly for your worth.
Because the open Will Center can be driven by a need to prove itself, it’s important to reflect on the intentions behind making new commitments. Ask yourself what you’re trying to prove in such situations. Are you attempting to demonstrate your kindness or prove that you’re capable of surpassing others?
Remember that the open Centers hold profound wisdom within us. The open Will Center can guide you in gaining profound insights into what truly holds value in life. With time and experience, you can become wise about your own worth in both the business world and your personal life. You may also develop the wisdom to discern when it’s appropriate to work and when it’s necessary to rest.
You might be wondering, “If I lack willpower, how will I accomplish things?” Rest assured, you are capable of getting things done, but it’s crucial to approach each commitment in accordance with your unique Strategy. When you have an Open Will Center, following your Strategy can be a life-saving practice. Society conditions us to believe that we possess willpower, emphasizing a “just do it” mindset. However, if we push ourselves to “just do it” without considering our strategies, we often end up failing and experiencing feelings of exhaustion and dissatisfaction.
The Defined Will Center
When you have a Defined Will Center, you have consistent access to willpower and can be willful.
If you have a Defined Will Center and decide to start a daily running routine, it will be relatively easy for you to establish a regular habit and make yourself run each day, even when you lack the motivation. While you may take occasional breaks to rest, you’ll easily resume your routine after a few days and maintain consistency.
For individuals with a Defined Will Center, it holds significant importance for their self-esteem to make promises and fulfill them, even when they may not feel inclined to do so. If you have a Defined Will Center, take your commitments seriously, as it takes time and energy to follow through, and you always uphold your word.
The Defined Will Center operates on a cycle of work and rest. It’s crucial to take periodic breaks or vacations. Pushing yourself excessively without rest can lead to potential health issues such as heart problems or stomach ailments.
If you have a Defined Will Center, your energetic presence empowers others, making them believe they are capable of accomplishing anything. When individuals are within your aura, they feel the influence of your strong willpower.
For instance, let’s say you are a motivational speaker with a Defined Will Center. While your students attend your class, they are enveloped in your aura of willpower. Consequently, they feel inspired and committed to implementing the knowledge gained from your teachings. However, many of these students may return home and struggle to apply the newfound knowledge independently. They are no longer within the sphere of your willpower-driven aura and lack their own innate willpower.
It’s important to be understanding and gentle towards others who may not have the same ability to “just do it” as effortlessly as you do. The reality is that most people lack willpower and require a different approach to fulfill their commitments compared to someone with a Defined Will Center.
Emotional Solar Plexus
On the body graph, the Emotional Solar Plexus is the large triangle on the far right of the chart. It is a motor center, and this emotional energy fluctuates in waves.
The Open Emotional Solar Plexus
Approximately half of the population have an Open Emotional Solar Plexus, indicating that they are receptive to emotional energy. Such individuals are meant to gain knowledge about emotional energy and develop wisdom regarding feelings. When someone is emotionally open, they possess genuine empathy and can absorb and intensify the emotional energy of others.
This attribute can be considered a valuable gift. Many emotionally open people excel in sales because they possess the ability to quickly perceive their clients’ emotional state and customize their sales approach accordingly.
However, having an Open Emotional Solar Plexus can be a source of intense pain if one lacks understanding of its functioning. It is easy to mistake the emotions one experiences as their own, and when negative energy from others enters their awareness, it can be distressing. Consequently, emotionally open individuals often develop coping mechanisms such as being agreeable, avoiding conflicts, and maintaining a hidden personal life.
It is important to note that emotionally open people are not weak or lacking in character. Rather, they find highly charged emotional situations to be particularly painful. To navigate this, it is essential for them to consciously acknowledge emotional energy, allowing it to flow through them without assuming responsibility for it or feeling the need to fix it. Rather than being a sponge, they should strive to be an emotional screen.
Often, a child who consistently exhibits dramatic behavior is an emotionally open child. This child absorbs and amplifies the emotional energy present within the entire family. However, when left to their own devices, these children tend to be relatively calm and do not experience a significant amount of emotional energy themselves.
The Defined Emotional Solar Plexus
The Defined Emotional Solar Plexus consistently holds emotional energy. The channels between your Emotional Solar Plexus and other centers determine the nature of the emotional waves you experience. Your emotional frequency can exhibit subtle fluctuations or significant highs and lows, with periods of stability in between.
Due to the wave-like nature of emotional energy, it’s easy to mistake the melancholy at the low end of the spectrum for depression. If you have a defined Emotional Solar Plexus, seeking a reason for feeling down can lead to significant challenges with depression. Our culture tends to stigmatize negative emotions, but not all of them are harmful. Melancholy, or the low point of an emotional wave, carries essential creative energy. It allows for the evaluation of various emotional perspectives when examining an issue.
Keeping a daily log of your emotional energy is a beneficial practice if you have a defined Emotional Solar Plexus. Each person possesses a unique emotional rhythm, and understanding your emotional patterns will assist in making sound decisions and determining the time required to attain emotional clarity regarding a particular matter.
Given that emotions come in waves, it is vital to respect your personal process. Your emotional definition serves as your Authority, regardless of your Type. Therefore, it is advisable to wait until you achieve emotional clarity before taking action or responding. Waiting for the appropriate emotional state prior to making decisions will prevent impulsive emotional choices that may lead to regret later on.
The Root Center is the square located at the very bottom of the body graph. This is the center for adrenaline. It is also considered one of the two pressure centers in the system (the other one being the Head Center). The Root Center energy operates in pulses.
The Open Root Center
The open Root Center is like a sponge for adrenaline energy from others, and it has the power to magnify it. If you have an open Root Center, you might find excitement in being in front of a crowd or engaging in thrilling activities like skydiving or bungee jumping. On a simpler note, you may satisfy your craving for adrenaline by opting for safer options like sipping caffeine or indulging in chocolate.
Since the open Root Center is closely associated with pressure, individuals with this type of center can often feel that everyone around them is under pressure to be constantly active. In other words, people who process energy in this way have a tough time unwinding or having fun until all their work is completed. It might seem logical to finish your tasks before enjoying leisure time, but those with an open Root Center feel such an intense pressure to accomplish everything that they rarely allow themselves to recharge their batteries. As a result, they can become drained and less effective at work.
Sometimes, the amount of energy absorbed by the open Root Center can become overwhelming, leading to stress, stage fright, or even panic disorders. Different individuals may vary in their sensitivity to the energy absorbed by their open centers.
The truth about the open Center is that the work is never truly finished. If you give someone with an open Root Center a task, they’ll complete it swiftly just to relieve themselves from the pressure of having to get it done. While they may be efficient, their rapid pace can sometimes result in mistakes or skipped steps, especially if they are manifesting generators.
Unfortunately, we often tend to assign these individuals more work because the more tasks they have, the more pressure they feel to complete them. It becomes an endless cycle of doing more. That’s why it’s crucial to realize that the open Root Center is simply an energy center, and you don’t have to be a victim to that energy. Just embrace your freedom and be yourself anyway.
The Defined Root Center
When your Root Center is defined, it means you have a consistent way of processing adrenaline energy, and it follows a specific cycle based on the colored lines around your Root Center. When you’re feeling that surge of adrenaline, you’ll be motivated to tackle tasks and get things done. But when that adrenaline pulse isn’t present, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be productive. Your productivity naturally follows the rhythm of your adrenaline energy.
Having a defined Root Center provides some immunity to feeling pressured by adrenaline. However, it doesn’t mean you’re immune to stress altogether. You might still experience stress, but it could arise from other factors or through open centers in your body graph. In simple terms, when you have a defined Root Center, tasks and projects are completed at their own pace, without the constant pressure to get them done immediately.
The Spleen is the large triangle located on the left side of the Human Design chart. The Spleen is the center for intuition, time, and the immune system.
The intuition located in the Spleen is all about survival. It operates solely in the present moment. When you have a gut feeling, it tends to be fleeting. That’s why it’s often tempting to ignore your gut and go ahead with something, only to later regret it. The Spleen is a feel-good center.
Intuitive guidance based on survival can sometimes feel like fear. The Spleen Center is similar to the primal instincts of our ancient ancestors. Some fears can be healthy and beneficial, like being cautious about entering a dark alley at night. However, when many Gates are activated in your spleen, you may find yourself prone to various fears, not all of which are helpful. The good news is that Spleen fears exist only in the present moment, and although they can be terrifying, it’s often easy to overcome them, especially when they seem illogical.
Remember, the Human Design system is solely about energy. At times, we encounter these energies that may not be logical or even personal. Understanding your Human Design can truly empower you and free you from being a victim to certain energies, such as fear.
The Spleen also serves as the center for our perception of time. People with a defined spleen find it effortless to stay fully present in the moment. In fact, sometimes they may struggle to move beyond the current moment. Additionally, the spleen is responsible for our immune system, playing a crucial role in our overall well-being.
The Open Spleen Center
Having an open Spleen indicates that you likely have a sensitive immune system. It might seem like you catch illnesses easily, but what it truly means is that you are highly attuned to the subtle changes in your body, and you notice when something feels a bit off. You may also find that you’re sensitive to medications and require lower doses, or you may respond better to homeopathic remedies. Additionally, be aware that your tolerance for alcohol or recreational drugs may be lower, and you might feel their effects even with lower consumption.
When your Spleen is open, you don’t have consistent access to “feel-good” energy. People with open Spleens tend to enjoy the company of individuals with defined Spleens, as it makes them feel nurtured and strong.
Letting go can be challenging for individuals with open Spleens. This can apply to possessions, addictions, relationships, and even grudges. For example, suppose you have an open Spleen and are dating someone with a defined Spleen. Being with this person brings you a sense of well-being. You feel nurtured and protected in their presence. However, they may not treat you as you deserve, and it can be difficult for you to end the relationship because, unconsciously, your energy field is drawn to their energy.
It’s important to remember that an open Center offers unlimited ways of experiencing the energy of that particular Center. If you have an open Spleen, you have the potential for unlimited intuition. However, it won’t always manifest in the same way. One day you may have “gut feelings,” another day you may experience “inner knowingness,” and on a different day, you might hear a guiding voice or have prophetic dreams. While an open Spleen lacks consistent access to intuitive energy, many people with open Spleens mistakenly believe they have limited intuitive insight. How an open Spleen receives intuition varies depending on the people they’re around, but they often possess a deep sense of intuition.
Since the Spleen is also associated with our perception of time, it’s common for individuals with open Spleens to struggle with the concept of time. Some may frequently be late, while others who have had negative experiences with lateness may be compulsively early. This is especially important to understand if you have a child with an undefined Spleen. It’s helpful to leave some extra time when you need to rush out the door quickly, as it can be challenging for people with open Spleens to hurry. Our open centers are where we carry our deepest conditioning, so if you have an open Spleen, you may be hyper-aware of time, particularly if you’ve had negative experiences with losing track of it. Remember, openness is where our wisdom resides. When someone with an open Spleen begins to comprehend Splenic energy, they become wise about healing, intuition, and time.
The Defined Spleen Center
When you have a defined Spleen, you are designed to live in the present moment. Your decision-making process is immediate, and your sense of timing aligns with “right now.” Having a defined Spleen speeds up your actions and provides a consistent stream of intuitive insights in the present.
Individuals with defined Spleens possess powerful immune systems. Their immune strength is so robust that they might overlook the initial symptoms of illness. If you have a defined Spleen, you may not realize you’re sick until it has progressed significantly. It’s also common for people with defined Spleens to continue working despite being unwell. It’s important to periodically check in with your body if you have a defined Spleen or pay attention if someone asks about your well-being. Sometimes others may notice your illness before you do.
The intuition of a defined Spleen speaks only once, and then it doesn’t repeat itself. That gut feeling telling you whether you should or shouldn’t do something is your Spleen communicating with you. Many of us with defined Spleens learn to listen to the “voice” of our Spleens around the age of 40. It’s at this point that we’ve spent a lifetime saying to ourselves, “I knew I shouldn’t have done that…”
Since the Spleen is survival-oriented, it can also communicate through fear. Some of these fears include inadequacy, responsibility, imperfection, the meaninglessness of life, and the fear that your dreams will never come true. These fears can easily paralyze you. However, the fantastic thing about Spleen-based fears is that, no matter how daunting they seem, you can overcome them by simply pushing through.
The challenge of having a defined Spleen is distinguishing whether your intuition is conveying a vital message about survival or if you’re simply experiencing the energy of the Spleen, which requires you to move forward with understanding and insight. This is where following your Strategy becomes crucial. If you’re facing Spleen-related fears, use your Type’s strategy to determine whether you should take action or not. Don’t allow the Spleen’s fears to immobilize you into inaction.
The Sacral Center is the square located toward the bottom of the chart and is one of the most important centers in the human design system, and it is the most important of the four motors. It is the energy center for workforce and life force energy.
The Open Sacral Center
Having an undefined Sacral Center means you have an unlimited capacity to experience workforce and life force energy. This special aspect of your design allows you to absorb and magnify these energies for short periods of time, sometimes even surpassing the productivity of Generators and Manifesting Generators. As a result, people with undefined Sacral Centers often believe they can do more than anyone else, and to some extent, they can.
However, it’s crucial to understand the concept of sustainability when it comes to the energy of the Sacral Center. Individuals with an open Sacral Center cannot maintain a consistently high level of energy for an extended duration without risking burnout. This means that if you have an open Sacral, the traditional Monday through Friday, 9-to-5 work routine may not be suitable for you. Fortunately, most people with open Sacral Centers find relief in hearing that they aren’t designed for conventional work. It doesn’t mean you can’t work or that you don’t need to work; it simply means that you’ll likely thrive in a more flexible work environment.
It’s not uncommon for non-Sacral individuals to experience a “crash” around the age of 40, struggling to keep up with their previous busy lifestyles. Since sustainability is crucial for those without a defined Sacral Center, it’s essential to regularly assess whether you’re doing more than enough and learn to recognize when it’s time to stop.
Society often holds strong beliefs about the value and importance of work, leading to judgment and misunderstanding towards non-Sacral individuals. They may be labeled as lazy or incapable due to their inability to sustain continuous labor. However, non-Sacral beings bring their own wisdom and unique energy contributions to the world. They simply operate differently when it comes to work.
Non-Sacral individuals may also face judgment for their need for naps and alone time. However, these requirements are essential for their physical well-being. If you don’t have a defined Sacral Center, it’s crucial to give yourself alone time to discharge excess Sacral energy from your system and to nap for rejuvenation. Both of these practices are vital for maintaining your overall health.
Sleep can be a significant challenge for people with open Sacral Centers, often leading to insomnia. If you have an open Sacral, it’s important not to wait until you’re exhausted before going to bed. Waiting too long will make it difficult to fall asleep. Instead, it’s best to lie down in bed at least 30 minutes before you feel sleepy. You can read or watch TV, but make sure you’re resting in a reclining position before sleep.
Furthermore, it’s beneficial for you to sleep alone a few nights a week. Sharing a bed with a Generator can drain your energy, preventing your Sacral Center from discharging excess energy and affecting your overall well-being. It’s a topic worth discussing with your partner to find a solution that benefits both of you. Remember, understanding your Human Design and taking appropriate actions to protect and nurture your energy system are integral to maintaining strength and good health.
The Defined Sacral Center
Having a defined Sacral Center is what categorizes you as a Generator Type. This center holds significant importance when it comes to work. If you possess a defined Sacral motor, you are designed for work. However, the challenge lies in finding the right work that truly resonates with you.
Many Generators and Manifesting Generators often feel frustrated and stuck in their work situations because they dislike their jobs. This usually occurs when they approach their work in the wrong way.
The energy of the Sacral Center contradicts much of what our culture has taught us. We’ve been raised with the belief that we need to go out and “make things happen” and “manifest our destiny.” But as many of you may have experienced, if you have a defined Sacral Center and you try to force things to happen, you often end up feeling frustrated because nothing goes as planned.
If you have a Sacral motor, you are designed to wait for things to come to you. This can be challenging because the Sacral energy is always buzzing and longing to be active. Sacral beings are naturally busy individuals, constantly inclined to be “doing.”
However, the Sacral Center emphasizes waiting and responding to what shows up in your external reality. Consider this: If you have a defined Sacral Center, how many times have unexpected and miraculous things occurred out of the blue? What happens when you try to force things to happen?
Sacral energy functions best when you learn to wait for the right opportunities and then respond to them. Remember, though, just because something shows up doesn’t mean you have to jump into it. You have the freedom to choose.
For individuals with defined Sacral Centers, it’s important to exhaust themselves every day and experience a state of tiredness before falling asleep. It’s crucial to sleep when you’re truly exhausted. If you’re waiting for a second wind, you’re operating on energy you don’t actually have, and this can eventually harm your health.
If you have a defined Sacral and struggle to fall asleep at night, it simply means you haven’t engaged in enough physical activity during the day. Consider incorporating more movement and exercise into your routine. Generators need to “burn out” their Sacral motors.
This becomes particularly relevant when dealing with Generator children. Many children have been diagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). However, many of these children are simply Generators who aren’t getting enough exercise and therefore not tiring out their Sacral motors before bedtime. As these children become increasingly sleep-deprived due to difficulty falling asleep, their serotonin levels drop. Low serotonin can lead to irritability, lack of focus, and low self-esteem, which can mimic the symptoms of ADD or ADHD. Simply finding ways to help these children engage in more physical exercise can significantly improve their ability to fall asleep and sleep well. In most cases, when these children can consistently sleep well for a few weeks, the symptoms of ADD or ADHD magically disappear. The same principle applies to adults.
The Sacral Center also plays a vital role in sexuality, encompassing both sex and reproduction. It is the energy center for sexual encounters, raising children, and ensuring their journey to adulthood. When you have a defined Sacral, your experience of sexuality generally remains consistent throughout your life. Sacral beings are also designed to have and nurture children. The Sacral Center provides sustainable energy for caring for children and working to provide for them.
The key to understanding Sacral energy lies in recognizing that a defined Sacral Center grants a Generator access to sustainable life force and workforce energy. This is an essential distinction between Sacral beings and non-Sacral beings that should be kept in mind.
