Human Design Insights #9: The Throat center, Words and Truth

The throat center is a gateway, it doesn’t have energy of its own. It defines the energy passing through, but it has no influence over the content. Nothing said is ever written in stone. I have personally come into the habit of never holding anyone to their word. I trust deeply that there is more truth behind words than in words. Because minds change, emotions change, intentions change, energy changes. The moment of now disappears and appears constantly. Words convey what is there is the moment. And every moment is new and different from the previous one. Truth is the…

Human Design Insights #8: the G center

The G center is the center that holds us together. It is a perfectly balanced magnet that attracts exactly everything that we are and repels everything that we are not. Where the Ego center is the physical manifestation of Love, the G center is the nonphysical experience of Love. We experience it as the push/pull in the right direction, the direction of our true Love in every sense. Our G center is the driver our our body vehicle, the compass that holds our true north. When your G center is defined, you can experience the G as a pulling sensation…

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: #6 The difference between definition and openness

Q: How does energy enter the body and how are centers activated by this energy? A: The head receives energy/vibration through the nerve endings which communicate with the brain from everywhere in the body. These nerve ending receive information in the form of vibration from both our outer environment and inner body. All cells receive information but this remains unconscious until it is sent to and filtered by the mind. For example, your eyes receive light, but it carries no meaning until the vibration from this light and the code/message that it carries is received by the mind and interpreted.…

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 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…
