The Human Design Ajna is the centre for data processing and awareness. People who have this centre defined have a very fixed way of thinking.
With this centre open, you don’t have a fixed way of thinking about anything. Instead you can see things from many different perspectives. You can use this open-minded way of thinking to help people with a defined Ajna centre see things from another angle.
You can be easily influenced by the thoughts and ideas of the people around you so make sure your thoughts are you own and not absorbed from someone else.
You struggle for certainty and to hold onto a vision, but you’re not meant to be mentally certain about things. Instead, tune into your body. Your answers to any thoughts you have will come through your body in response such as a gut instinct. Look for clarity in your body in response to something, not certainty in your head.
The Human Design G Centre is the centre for self-love, identity and life-direction.
When you have this centre open, your identity and life direction is changeable; you adapt yourself to whoever you are with and wherever you are.
This centre is linked to the heart chakra and it’s all about self-love and love for others. When you have this centre open you can fall in love with anyone because you see the potential within them. This open centre can also cause you to question your lovability.
The most important thing you can do is to spend time in places that feel really good; your home and work are especially important. It’s also important to spend time with people who are good for you because you become like the people you are around. These people should feel good to spend time with.
The Human Design Solar Plexus is the centre for emotional energy. People who have this centre defined experience a consistent emotional wave.
With this centre open, you take in the emotional energy of the people around you and then amplify it. This makes you susceptible to the emotional energy of other people. You will do whatever you can to keep people happy so as not to stir the emotions of others because this ultimately affects you.
The best thing to do when you notice the stirring of emotional energy picked up from someone else is to remove yourself from them. Take yourself away for at least 15 minutes to let the energy subside so you can release it.
The Human Design Root centre is a pressure centre. It has an adrenaline pulse that is either on or off for people who have this centre defined in their chart.
With an open Root centre, you can struggle to relax and unwind without feeling like you should be doing something. You can completely exhaust yourself and push yourself beyond your energy limits because you don’t have a natural internal pulse that tells you when it’s time to stop and rest. This can ultimately lead you to burn out.
You must find a way to stay out of the pressure that your open Root centre creates within you. Meditate, swim, read, yoga are just some activities you can engage in to unwind and stop yourself DOING all the time. Your to-do list will never be complete so give yourself a break and hide that stressful list of action items.
In Human Design, the Throat Centre is the centre for communication and manifestation. Everything in the chart leads to this centre so it can be expressed as words and turned into actions.
A defined Throat Centre which is connected to a motor centre gives Manifestors and Manifesting Generators their manifesting power.
Those of us with this centre open are designed for silence. We need to wait for recognition or to be invited to share what we know with other people if we want them to hear us.
Our vocal power comes when we wait to be recognised or invited to speak. It’s only then that the benefit of having an open Throat Centre can be harnessed; we can adapt our voice and our words to suit the person or people we are talking to so our words are truly understood.
The Human Design Spleen is the centre for survival, health, intuition and time. It’s a mastery centre. This is a feel good centre so people who have this centre defined have natural feel good energy.
When you have an open Spleen centre you are attracted to people and things that make you feel good because you don’t naturally have this energy yourself. This causes you to hang on to these things for longer than you should. This can cause you to hold onto unhealthy relationships and circumstances.
You’re often so in the flow with whatever you’re doing that you loose track of linear time; there is only NOW. At times you may be so into the moment that you don’t have the consistent energy to be aware of other commitments; you can lose track of time. This can cause you to be overly conscious of keeping your time commitments.
Fear plays a big part in your life if you don’t learn to feel the fear and do it anyway. Fears are only in the moment and once you push through them, you’ll achieve your next step in mastering whatever you are doing.
Your body lets you know when things aren’t right, so tune into your sensitive immune system. It signals to you when you need to stop and take care of yourself.
The Human Design Will is the centre for willpower, money and ego. People who have this centre defined have access to willpower energy to commit to things and see them through.
With an open Will centre, you don’t have access to consistent willpower although you can sometimes mistakenly think you do. When you are around someone with this centre defined, you temporarily borrow their willpower energy and you can feel invincible.
With this centre open you question your value and are terrified that you’re not worthy. You have a drive to prove yourself. You can completely burn yourself out because of this. This open centre can cause us to constantly push yourself with energy you simply don’t have; trying to prove to yourself and the world that you are productive and committed.
It is important that you enter agreements with other people using your strategy so you protect yourself from committing to something that you just don’t have the energy for.
You have an enormous amount of potential to find out what is truly valuable in life and what is worth committing your energy to, so make sure you tap into this.
The Human Design Sacral is a powerful motor energy centre. 70% of people have this centre defined which gives them the energy to do and to keep going.
With this centre open, you don’t know when enough is enough; you may crash and burn out but not realise why. You, therefore, need to manage your energy. If you don’t, you may completely burn out after 40.
You need a lot of rest and to get good sleep every night; don’t wait until you’re exhausted to go to bed. Ensure you get lots of time alone and take naps if you need them.
In Human Design, the Head Centre is the centre for ideas and inspiration. Divine inspiration comes through the Head centre and ultimately allows us to expand what is possible.
When you have this centre open, ideas come at you from many different directions. You could be having a shower, hanging out with friends, walking on the beach…it doesn’t matter…the ideas will find a way into your open Head.
You may think you need to action all of these ideas, to understand them and to work them out; this causes you an undue amount of mental pressure.
Your ideas can keep you in a constant of mental processing. You can wake in the middle of the night with random ideas and struggle to get back to sleep because of it.
Your open Head Centre is designed to dance with all the different possibilities of thinking.
Enjoy the wisdom you receive pondering ideas and inspirations. Then release these ideas so they don’t consume you. Find a way to escape the pressure of your open Head Centre by finding a way to relax your overactive mind. Reading, listening to podcasts, dancing, meditation, or a big glass of wine are all great examples of techniques you can use to escape the pressure of your mental chatter.
