Lets talk about those shapes on the Human Design chart.
The 9 Energy Centres.
You may know that the Chakras are each responsible for different aspects of our energy.
In the same way, so are each of the 9 Energy centres (More on the Chakra/Energy Centre correlation later in this post)
Whether the energy centre is defined or not defined as well as which gates come off the centre (and there may be no gates coming off the centre) determine the effect on the energy flow.
The Energy Centres act as hubs for the flow of energy through your bodygraph.
And as with the Chakra system, each Centre is responsible for different parts of the body.
A really brief description of each Centre and what it controls for us.
The Head Centre is the hub for inspiration and ideas.
The Ajna Centre is the hub for thinking and conceptualising
(Pituitary Gland, Neo Cortex, Visual Cortex)
The Throat Centre is the hub for communication and manifestation
(Thyroid, Parathyroid, Metabolism)
The G Centre is the hub for identity, love and direction
The Will (Heart/Ego) Centre is the hub for willpower, self worth/esteem and the material world
(Thymus, Stomach, Gall Bladder)
The Emotional Solar Plexus Centre is the hub for emotions and feelings
(Kidney, Bladder, Pancreas, Lungs, Prostate, Nervous System)
The Spleen Centre is the hub for survival, intuition, timing, living in the now and immunity
(Lymphatic System/Immune System)
The Sacral Centre is the hub for vital energy, responding energy, sexual energy
The Root Centre is the hub for stress and adrenalised energy
Defined Versus Undefined
When a Centre is Defined, it is able to experience it’s energy in a consistent, sustainable way. The energy of that centre is always available for it’s owner and is being transmitted, or broadcast, out into the ethers.
When a Centre is Undefined, it is a receiver for the type of energy information it is responsible for. That is; it takes the energy in from around it – from others and from planetary transits and then it amplifies the energy. But this energy is not sustainable or consistent for the undefined centre. It’s not always available and it doesn’t always ‘feel’ the same.
A few more facts on these powerfully important places in your energy field.
The colours of the centres don’t really mean anything. The original colours of yellow, green, brown and red are apparently the colours The Voice gave Ra Uru Hu in his original download.
The shapes can be any colour. What IS important is whether they are defined (coloured in) or undefined/open (white).
An Energy Centre is defined when there is a channel running between it and another Energy Centre. A channel is made up of 2 defined gates and is what gives Energy Centres their definition. So for example, when the gate 16 coming off the bottom left of the Throat Energy Centre is defined (either red or black or both) and the gate 48 coming off the top left of the Spleen Energy Centre is also defined (either red or black or both), they meet and create a CHANNEL so then both the Throat and Spleen Energy Centres in that person will be defined.
In other words, there must be a channel coming off a centre in order for it to be defined.
The specific way energy expresses itself through your Energy Centres will be determined by which defined gates or indeed, lack of gates come off each of them. This makes us individual and unique even if we have the same gate or Energy Centre definition as someone else.
You may be wondering about the correlation between the 9 Energy Centres and the 7 Chakras. In 1781 the planet Uranus was discovered and so kicked off a massive evolution in Humanity’s consciousness as has been consistent with new discoveries and understandings of our cosmos. This was the beginning of the age of enlightenment. It was also the beginning of a new Bodygraph – one which included 9 Energy Centres, not the previous 7.
At this time the Heart Chakra split in to the G Centre and the Will Centre and what is known as the the Solar Plexus Chakra split into the Spleen and Emotions (ESP) Centres.
Where you are Defined is where you get to experience your energy consistently and reliably. That defined energy is always there for you.
Where you are Undefined is where you get to experience the energy of that Centre is so many ways – infinite ways! It’s where you need to be aware that the energy is not yours. And it’s where you have the potential to become incredibly wise.
Most importantly, it matters not whether your Energy Centres are Defined or Undefined. What matters most is that you use your energy correctly.
