When the Sacral Leaves the Home

hot-airThis past month was a longer than usual exploration of what it’s like to live in my own frequency without the sacral being in my life. My husband, who works away from home, was gone for an extended period of time. I usually start to notice that my energy flags at about two and a half weeks into our separation. By the third week it can feel like I’m limping to the finish line of our reunion. It’s like someone deflates a balloon inside of me, and there’s very little energy to physically keep going.

So needless to say, as three weeks stretched into five, life began to get interesting.  It felt like I had no buffer from burnout. And the more I moved between my own frequency and the outside world, the more I felt the need to isolate. The more I isolated myself, the less energy I had. It was a vicious cycle that gave me much pause to reflect upon the Projector / Generator relationship. It is such an essential dance for many reasons…

There is a certain balance and rhythm that comes with having a Generator in the home… or at least my beloved generator.  For one thing, I have some external cues to tell me when enough is enough. I have someone who checks on me when I haven’t surfaced from my office in a while… even if it’s just to remind me to eat. I have the other to focus upon … the one other who is my partner and my support. And this keeps me grounded.  And what really stands out as I write this is the amount of protection the Generator aura seems to provide. I’m not exactly sure how to describe it. The Generator’s aura is enveloping by nature. Perhaps it envelops the Projector’s aura and buffers it from other external influences. This is just a theory that is worth feeling into and exploring.

What have you noticed about the Generator(s) in your life? Does their aura feel protective to you?

Human Design Projector Holiday Experiment

20141221_203528 The holiday season with its increased social activities is a perfect time to experiment with Human Design.  If you have been learning about yourself as a Human Design Projector for a while, you know how important it is discover how you feel by yourself vs how you feel among others … especially if you have a lot of open energy centers.

My Generator husband and I have been enjoying a visit from my Manifesting Generator stepdaughter (who normally lives with her mother).  At the same time my Manifesting Generator stepson with three motors to his throat and a bad case of Senior Year of High School Angst, is visiting his mother for the holidays. This is not our usual way to spend the holidays.  We usually have both of the kids or not.  But this different arrangement has resulted in great observations about my Projector energy and my relationships with the sacral beings in my life.

Here 2 things I have discovered:

  • The stress and discord in my house the past few months was not mine.  Hallelujah!  It was the result of the conditioning that my husband (who is a Generator with 6 open centers) and I (a Projector with 5 open centers) were receiving from his very defined son.  I’m not placing blame, just observing.  As soon as he left we both relaxed.
  • Sacral energy can be delicious when you’re in the right conditioning field.  My husband and I both share some delightful electromagnetic connections with my stepdaughter.  Her presence activates us in ways that uplift us (especially me) and allow me to ride along under the influence of the sustainable energy to have fun.

Projectors are designed to be conditioned by others.  It’s how we know the other so that we can guide them when invited.  I believe we’re also here to enjoy our lives and perhaps even balance the planetary vibrations with that joy we embody (just a personal theory).  It’s all about the right people.. the right sacral energy … the best feeling connections which make the difference between a Projector who struggles and a Projector who thrives.

You may have already observed the differences in your energy field when you are around your Generator loved ones.  If not, this time of year will give you ample opportunity!

Perhaps the most important thing to remember about your observations is the necessity to spend time alone.  This allows you to feel your personal energy independent of others.  And when you step into the influence of another’s auric field, the difference will be unmistakable.

Enjoy your experiments and your holiday season!

The Drudgery of Work – How to Be Wise About It

As a Human Design Projector you are not here to work like most other people.  Projectors have an undefined sacral center so the energy for work comes and goes.  And because of this, even the simplest activities can turn into drudge work under certain circumstances.  By drudge I mean those activities which bore the crap out of you so much so that you wish they would just do themselves.  They are the ones that you dread because they suck the life out of you.

stressfulA lovely Projector asked about how she can deal with drudge work .  If you find that there are times when you just don’t want to do “it” … whatever it is … you get what she means by drudgery.

If you’re doing hard, physical labor you need to know that most Human Design Projectors are not equipped to do this on a continuous basis.  That open sacral center may fool you into believing you can when you’re around a bunch of Generators, but do this too often and you may find yourself flat out exhausted.  Even the most tenacious Projector will eventually succumb to exhaustion from amplifying all of that Generator sacral energy in their undefined sacral center.  That said, the flipside advantage of the Projector’s undefined sacral is the eventual ability to become wise about how, when and what to do about work.

So here’s what I invite you to do the next time you’re faced with a mind numbing or body draining task.  Start to play with how you can become wise about dealing with the drudgery.

#1 – Can you get out of it?  Well if you have a hamper full of dirty clothes and no one to wash them for you, you probably have to do it.  That’s just a tiny example.  If you’re in a job that’s draining the life out of you it’s a whole different story.  It’s entirely possible that no amount of wise management will keep you afloat and you might have to jump ship. (this is where strategy and authority come in)

Ok if you can’t get out of the mundane, here are some things to consider when you’re experimenting with wisdom about work:

  • Drudge work is “drudgyer” if you haven’t taken care of yourself.  If you’re tired because your self-care is suffering everything is harder.  You run out of energy quicker.  You have less tolerance for even the smallest of tasks that you don’t want to do.
  • You don’t have to do everything yourself.  Even the busiest Generators delegate stuff that they don’t want or can’t do … just to save them time.  Delegating saves a Projector precious vital force energy!
  • Procrastination can become a fine art when you are following your own timing.   You may discover that some things don’t need to be done at all, or something shows up to make it easier. Of course if procrastination is creating more stress it may not be wise to use it.
  • One Projector’s work is another Projector’s joy.  Drudge work can sometimes be a matter of perspective.  When joy is your guide the unavoidable work gets done easily. Perhaps every Projector resonates deep down inside with the bit of wisdom that says “If it ain’t fun don’t do it”.  But what if you can’t get out of it and you aren’t in a position to delegate it?  Is it possible to make it fun with a joyful incentive?  Here’s an example…
My kitchen floor needs to be washed.  Whenever I can, I hire someone to come and do it.  Lately I haven’t deemed it possible, so I put it off.  So today I got a little “joyful incentive”… my husband informed me that he’s sending me 4 lobsters for my birthday which will be here on Friday.  I immediately got excited about having friends over for dinner and voila!… the energy for washing the floor showed up!
Of course I’ve been laying low and conserving energy for the past few days and have planned a
day off after my “clean the kitchen floor and host a dinner party extravaganza”. That’s how I’m
becoming more wise about work …
How about you?  How are you becoming wise about work?

5 Reasons It’s Great to Be a Human Design Projector

It’s not always easy to move through the world in a way that is different from most.  When you are a Human Design Projector it can be even more challenging, because you don’t have the consistent energy to show up in a world that (over)values work and keep up with the way that everyone else (the majority 70% with a defined sacral center) does it.  If you are a Projector who finds it challenging to stay positive about yourself in the midst of the Generator world here are 5 reasons that it’s great to be a Human Design Projector:  

  1. You have ongoing permission to take a nap in the middle of the day.
  2. You can become really wise about how to make the most of the energy you possess and how others can do the same.
  3. When you are being who you really are, people feel your presence when you walk into the room… whether they acknowledge it or not. … That is real power!
  4. You are an expert at something.  It’s your nature.  You can’t help it.  And right at this moment your people are looking for you to share your expertise with them. … How cool is that?
  5. You are here to be adored and recognized.  You feel it in your bones, so don’t deny it!

Please take some time today to recognize and adore yourself!  You play such an important role on the planet.  No other group of people possess the wisdom to shift the broken paradigms of work and productivity in the world the way that Projectors can.  And the beautiful part is that it’s not what you do but how you “be” in your intrinsic power that creates the shift … first for yourself and then for your people who invite you to “be” you with them.  Your authentic presence is enough.  So remember to love yourself deeply and live unapologetically in your joy!
