DEFINED compared with UNDEFINED energies in the chart
Your Human Design Chart has coloured shapes, and coloured lines marked on it. (If you’re a Reflector, it won’t have coloured shapes, only coloured lines.) The coloured in bits of your chart are where you are defined. Areas that are white including the shapes and the areas where the lines run are where you are undefined.
Where we are DEFINED in the chart, be that in the energy centres – the 9 shapes on the chart, or in the gates and channels – the black, red or black and red lines on the chart, is where we experience consistent energy of our own depending on what the particular area of definition represents. These defined areas are where we are designed to truly know ourselves and to broadcast this energy out into the world.
For example, if you have the G Centre defined (the yellow diamond in the centre), then you are likely to know who you are and always have. You have a sense of self, a sense of your direction.
Definition of the gate 48 (which comes off the top of the brown triangle on the left of the chart), means you are likely to be very detail oriented.
Where we are UNDEFINED (often referred to as “open”) in the chart, is where we take in the energy of those around us and the planetary transits, and we amplify them. It’s in these undefined areas that often with time and experience, we become very wise about that particular energy. We can over time, develop a real richness of understanding about the energy because we experience it in so many ways from so many people and transits. We are able to use this wisdom of the open centres to help ourselves and others. It’s a beautiful thing.
It’s also where we are most prone to conditioning . Conditioning comes from believing that we are/should be what we are not. Because we have no consistent energy of our own in these white areas, we can believe that what we told by those around us. Conditioning can come from parents, teachers, bosses, marketers trying to sell us things, our environment. Often it’s only true for them (or perhaps not even for them – due to their own conditioning). However, it’s not necessarily true for you. If you want to know more about conditioning, read this post.
So if you have an undefined Emotional Solar Plexus (the triangle at the bottom right of the chart), then you don’t have access to your own consistent emotional wave. You take in the emotions of those around you. You know how they are feeling emotionally. And…you amplify these emotions for yourself – especially if you are unaware that they don’t belong to you.
The potential for great wisdom
Where you undefined in the gates and channels is where you are experiencing the energies that they represent in infinite numbers of ways and becoming incredibly wise about them in so many ways as you get to experience more and more of what life brings you.
Be aware that this usually takes time to achieve and is part of your journey here on Planet Earth this time around.
