Let’s talk about quitting…
This is a big topic at the moment and it might be fun and/or important for you to know what Human Design says about how you are designed to go about it.
Right now and indeed for the last couple of years, more people than ever are really feeling into what it is they want their lives to look like going forward. There is a palpable sense that change is in the air. What used to fill their cup no longer does. They know they are here to do something else – something more meaningful, more beautiful, lighter or just…more in alignment with who they are.
Many people are considering quitting.
You may well be in the picture!
I’m going to use an example of how this might play out for someone using their Human Design to know which right action to take, and allow you to apply it to your own circumstances in whatever way feels best.
We have 5 people – Kate (a Manifestor), Sarah (a Projector), Lily (a Reflector), Max (a Generator) and Darcy (a Manifesting Generator)
For the sake of this conversation, they all want to quit their middle management corporate jobs.
So just how should they go about coming to a decision on whether they should or not?
If her authority tells her to stay, and it might, she should stay.
should firstly ask herself if she has in some way, been invited to quit? This may or may not have happened. If it has, does it feel right to her according to her authority (Emotional, Splenic, Self Projected, Mental Projected) to quit? If she hasn’t been invited to quit, then as a Projector (who is not here to know herself), she may find that talking to other people who she trusts about her situation revelatory. She is likely to find her answer in the other persons words. Once she has done that, she can then use her Authority (see video) to help her with her final decision.
needs to wait a full month before she has all the information she needs to make this very important decision. Because she has none of her Energy Centres defined, she doesn’t have access to the consistency that a defined Energy Centre can bring. So she doesn’t have information at the ready for her to ‘hang’ her decision on. She gets that consistency from the energy coming from the astrological transits in particular, from the Moon, as it travels through all 64 gates during the following 29 days. Once she’s waited the month out, she can tune in to the information to see if she has clarity around the decision. It is important for her to realise though, that she may need more than one 29 day cycle – it’s not uncommon for a Reflector to require more than 1 cycle is required to gain the clarity needed.
Generator Max and Manifesting Generator Darcy
need to first ask themselves where this urge to quit is coming from. Is it coming from their heads? Or are they responding to something outside of their heads?
If it’s coming from their heads, then they are going to need a more ‘external’ sign. This is really important! If they are satisfied that they are responding to something outside of their heads then they need to go about following their strategy.
For Max, it’s a matter of asking her Sacral if she should quit. She can get someone else to help her with this by having a Sacral Session (more in this video). If she has Sacral Authority, then she needs to heed the answer she gets in that moment. If it’s an Ah ha – she puts in her notice. An Uh uh – means she stays put, at least for now – till the next time she gets an external nudge to respond to. Her Sacral knows what is best for Max, her body and her future.
If she has Emotional Authority, of course she needs to wait through her wave to get clarity around which decision is correct for her. However, no matter which of the 2 Authorities she has, if the correct Sacral answer turns out to be no, it will be because for some reason, at least for now, it is in her best interest to stay put. There may be a change on the horizon that is only possible if Max stays in this position. Who knows!
(psst…Her Sacral does.)
There you have it – decision making to take you into the new world.
By the way, not all of us are meant to be doing something different. Some of us are already doing what we are meant to be doing. And some of us are acting as a bridge for others, at least until they are ready for us to move on.
Have trust that your body knows what is correct for you and use your Strategy and Authority to guide you.
