In Human Design, the types without a defined Sacral Centre (Manifestors, Projectors and Reflectors) don’t have the same work force energy that Generator types have. They’re not designed to go go go all the time like Generators can nor do they have the ability to recharge their batteries while they sleep so they can do it all again the next day.
If you are one of these types, you must find work that allows you to go with your energy flow so you don’t risk burning out. You can’t sustain continuous work over the course of your life the way Generator types can. You may work longer and harder than Generators while you’re young because of your ability to borrow their sacral energy and live off their energetic fumes, but as you get older your open sacral loses the ability to borrow the same amount of energy. Think of it like your smartphone battery that gradually needs recharging more often because it loses its capacity to stay charged for as long.
This is why finding a way to work flexibly is vital for you as you get older when you need to put strategies in place that allow you to rest when required and work when you’re feeling vital.

The human design body chart has 9 centres. Each centre relates to one of the chakras and represents a specific aspect of how we function.
The Solar Plexus, for example, located on the very right side of the chart is the centre for emotions. The Throat centre, located near the throat, is the centre for communication and so on.
In our own personal human design chart each of these centres are either coloured in, which means they’re defined, or they are white, which means they are open.
While the actual colour doesn’t mean anything specifically, when a centre is coloured in – anything other than white – it means you have definition in this centre and therefore a consistent way of experiencing this energy.
When a centre is white it means you are open in this centre and you can experience the characteristics of this centre in many different ways. For example, if your Throat centre is defined you will have a consistent way of communicating and using your voice. When your Throat centre is white, and therefore open, you don’t have consistency here so you can use your voice in many different ways.
Having an open centre also means you can pick up on the energies of other people who have this centre defined and you can amplify this energy. This means with an open Throat centre you can adapt your voice and communication style to suit to the person you are with.
Having an open centre allows you to become wise about all the different ways of experiencing the energy from this centre. It can also cause you to pick up the traits of the people you spend the most time with who have these centres defined. This can lead you to believe that these traits are actually your own, conditioning you to believe you are/feel/think something you are not.
Which centres are coloured in and which are white on your Human Design chart? Remember the colour of the centre isn’t important; centres are always the same colour if they are defined. What’s most important to notice, is where you have consistency because you have these centres defined and where you don’t have consistency because you have these centres open. Your open centres will be where you have the most opportunity for growth and wisdom but may also have caused you to become conditioned by the people you’ve spent the most time with.
If you’ve never seen your Human Design chart you can get it for free here. If you need more help understanding your centres and your chart please get in touch for a Human Design session where we can explore your chart in more detail.
I am a human design Reflector type. 1% of people are this type and we are the karmic mirrors who reflect back the health and energy of our community.
One week ago I was released from my job because of the coronavirus. In spite of all the fear I see and feel around me at the moment, I can’t help but feel this overwhelming feeling of excitement at this time.
The past 6 months were challenging for me as I felt myself and everyone around me living out of alignment with who they truly are. I felt sick and stuck and experienced a lot of conflict within me.
Over the past week, these feelings have shifted to excited anticipation about what is to come. I feel happiness in my bones in a way I can’t articulate properly here. Change is afoot and while there are many distressing things happening at the moment because of this virus, there is so much to be gained. Life will never quite be the same again but this is a good thing.
As a change manager (my normal job title), I help businesses and people transition through change that has usually been thrust upon them. To help people make a transition, after the old way of doing things has ended, they typically go through what is called the ‘neutral zone’ - when no one truly knows what is going on or what the outcome will be. This is a great time of learning and discovery. In this time of chaos people find themselves, find meaning, and discover ways to evolve.
We are currently in a global neutral zone and as confusing and chaotic as it is, from this place we will evolve our global consciousness and find new ways of living more authentically. I know things are tough right now, but hang in there, things are just as they are meant to be.
