What is your role in the process?
Human Design teaches us that there are 5 different types of energies and every single person on the planet is one of those 5 types.
The fact that you are reading this now means that you likely know which of these 5 types you are.
If you don’t grab your chart here
When we look at the mechanics of each of the types, we realise that each type has a different role in the process of making things happen
Manifestors get the process started
Generator types (Pure Generators and Manifesting Generators) generate the power for the process
Projectors guide and manage the process
And Reflectors hold up a mirror to show how the process is going
There are of course exceptions to how these energies can be expressed and many of us experience exceptions every day.
For example, Projectors, Generator types and Reflectors can get things started. They will get things started….provided they are following their Human Design Strategy and Authority (S & A)
Manifestors, Projectors and Reflectors can provide the power (physical energy, grunt, muscle) to make things happen provided they follow their S & A and, are very mindful about not burning out their undefined Sacral.
They may also find they have the power at the beginning of the project that they have entered into correctly but as they proceed, someone else comes to the party with the energy to finish. (this is often what happens when they follow their S & A)
It really is vital that Open Sacral people use their S & A as it will let them know if something is actually good and healthy for them to do.
Manifestors, Generator Types and Reflectors can guide and manage processes – you guessed it – provided they are following their S & A which will give them the energy, the recognition (in the case of Generators and Reflectors because of their need for recognition in order to make manifest) and ability to effectively to do so.
Manifestors, Generator Types and Projectors can hold up (metaphoric) mirrors to show how the process is going – provided they are following their strategy and authority.5th lines (5/1’s, 3/5’s, 2/5’s & 5/2’s) can be very good at this too.
Just to be crystal clear, if you are doing any of the exceptions listed above, you better be dang sure you are following your S & A because you can very easily burn out. Burnout can take the form of exhaustion, illness, accidents, general gloominess or depression or anything else that takes you out of the game or makes life miserable. Burnout is usually the end result of you attempting to make things happen that you are quite simply not designed to do.
If any of these unaligned ways of being haven’t been working out for you lately, check in with yourself (or a trusted other if you’re a Projector) and be sure that you have been taking correct action according to your particular type’s Strategy and your Authority.
