Reflectors and the Learning Curve of Open Centers

This article has been a long time coming. When I was writing up articles about every type three years ago, I decided to hold off on writing about Reflectors until I felt like I really had a solid grasp on what a Reflector actually is and how energy flows within and around them.  It ended up taking a while.  Reflectors are mysterious creatures and elusive at that. Furthermore, to get into Reflectors means to dive into the intricate workings of energy within the body. We will be talking about experiencing the subtleties and nuances that come with openness, rather than…

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…

What Waiting for the Invitation actually 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.…

Pray for Standing Rock

What I see happening in Standing Rock is the breakdown of the corrupt, unjust American system. We have no idea how insanely corrupt this system actually is. The lies they tell, the violence they commit, the people they kill, the beauty they destroy. All in the name of the big lie of the American Dream. It is not a Dream they sell – it is a nightmare. And they sell it well. As I see the posters with “Black Friday” plastered on stores in my hometown, I realise how the power of this nightmare has taken over our whole world.…

Why I am not worried about Trump

The way I see it, the “system” we are now living in (capitalism, democracy, globalisation) is coming to an end. The economic crisis of 2008, the Brexit, “terrorism” and now these elections are all very clear signs that the current state of collective being is falling apart. In tangible terms, we are all deeply unhappy. We have more than ever! We are richer, healthier, happier and more peaceful than ever. Yet, so many people are not satisfied with their lives. This means to me that there is something “off” with the status quo. It can be better. And we are…

Crash Course Manifesting for Generators

Q: I am a Manifesting Generator – what does that mean and how does it work? A: With Human Design we can distinguish 4 types of human beings. Manifestors, Generators, Projectors and Reflectors. Each of these types can be again subdivided based on the specific authority in a design. The most well known of these subdivisions is the “Pure” Generator and the “Manifesting” Generator. The difference between these types is the way the energy flows. Manifesting Generators have defined Sacral center and a defined connection from a motor center (Sacral, Root, Ego or Solar Plex) to the Throat center. This means there…

Generators: How to Wait for the Response

  Q: “Wait to respond” for generators; what does that really mean? It doesn’t make sense to me that generators should wait a lot. A: It is almost impossible for generators to wait and do nothing. You will rarely find generators doing nothing unless they are out of balance (depression or illness) or in hibernation/recovery mode. The strategy of generators is not about waiting, it is about not initiating. Wait to respond is a moment-to-moment, day-to-day strategy. It is not wait… and then respond. It is Wait for the response. This means you can be busy busy with something, when suddenly…
