Human Design Insights #7: the Splenic Center

The Splenic center is absolutely ancient. It is the first kind of awareness that our ancestors developed, the awareness of the Now. This awareness is still the only form of awareness for animals, plants and life as we know it other than humanity. Humans developed two more forms of awareness, mental and emotional, which has made things very complicated for us. The awareness of the Now has only one interest, to be alive. To see how this awareness functions, think about the awareness that animals have. They don’t see beyond this moment. When there is nothing that helps or threatens…

Human Design Insights: #5 the Ego center

The location of the Ego center in the Bodygraph.The Ego center is also called the Heart center, because, among other organs, it encompasses the heart. And the function of the heart is also the function of the Ego center. This center is about the physical manifestation of Love. Because the heart beats, we have a body that is alive and self sustaining every moment until we die. Because we exist in the physical world, we have a certain value. We give and take, and our value is the measure of that. In the perspective of the whole value is meaningless,…

Human Design Insights: the Root center

Ironically, this post about the Root center came to my mind yesterday, but I am only typing it up now – while sitting in a crowded metro full of commuters. For me, that illustrates the nature of the (open/undefined) Root center clearer than anything. The Root center is the base impulse of the whole energetic system. The Root center gives us the impulse to move or to be still. It defines whether we fight, flight or freeze in a stressful moment. “Do I move or not?” is the question it is answering. The Root center is not an awareness center.…

Human Design Insights: the Throat center

All roads lead to Rome, Ra Uru Hu said about the Throat center. All the energy in the body moves towards expression. In other words, everything that happens inside you moves towards the surface. That is why the Throat center is the center of manifestation. The surface is where things become real, our senses can perceive the energy here. A thought, a feeling, an intuition, a desire, a need, or a response does not truly exist until it is expressed. This is why the sacral center needs to respond to something outside themselves. As long as anything that happens in…

Human Design Insights: the Solar Plexus center

The Solar Plexus center is the emotional wave. The movement of expansion and contraction that we feel as emotions. Whatever exists in the Now, the emotional center enlarges it, so it cannot escape our attention. This is how it is a center of awareness, it creates awareness through feeling. The funny thing about emotions – which we often don’t realise – is that they are not caused by anything. They are not big or small because of a certain reason outside of the simple mechanism of expansion and contraction. When you have a defined emotional center, you go from low…

Human Design Insights: The Sacral Center

The Sacral center is the engine of Life. It is a multiplication device. Whether you are a tree, a bee, a mushroom, a dog or a human being, the Sacral builds the form you are alive in. Everything that you see around you in built with Sacral energy. The Sacral receives what is there and builds with that what it is design to build. One sunflower seed receives nutrition from the ground and starts multiplying its cells until it shoots out of the ground and receives light, which allows it to multiply until it has the form of the tall…

What Waiting for the Invitation really means for Projectors

Before I begin this article, let’s first relax a little. Don’t worry, this will not take long – I will get to the information right after this. Just humour me for a bit, and try this out. Take a deep breath. And another one. Feel how the air fills your lungs. Notice your legs, how do they feel? What about your stomach, your chest, your shoulders, your throat, and your head? Scan them one by one. Take a few more deep breaths. Sigh a little, let out some sound on the exhale. Now, close your eyes and feel for a bit.…
