The Train Sometimes Leaves the Station Without All the Cars
When I think of these past 6 weeks of being on a new real estate team with two Manifesting Generators, it reminds me of a quote I once read from Ra Uru Hu about the relationship between Projectors and Generators. It went something like this…
(paraphrased) – Once the Projector is invited into a relationship by the Generator it is up to the Projector to grow and nurture the connection.
This bit of insight from Ra has been my guiding light since entering into this team. It has been a great ride so far with lots of twists and turns, brief pauses to reflect and changes in direction.
Her husband (we’ll call him Scott), is the administrative person and back up buyer’s agent. He is a Generator with manifesting tendencies. He doesn’t have the 34/20 channel of a pure Manifesting Generator. He has the 12/22 from the solar plexus to the throat. The difference in their energies is palpable. Scott is very laid back. He’s charming and great with clients, but only wants to have contact with them when he is in the mood. … This is a typical 12/22 trait … which is why I am now the primary buyer’s agent. Amy is much more energetic, not only because of the 34/20 channel which brings work energy to the throat, but also because she has all of her other motors, the root, the solar plexus and the will center defined.
When we started our journey together we decided to try to do certain things consistently for a limited amount of time. In pure 3/5 profile style (which we all have) we approached our first hundred days together as an experiment in developing new routines and finding our unique way of supporting each other as a team. Consequently we discovered much that hasn’t worked, like a regular daily routine where we do the same thing in the same place with each other among other things.
The main thing I learned right away is how to roll with the quick changes that a Manifestor Generator can make. During our first week together I got a text from Amy as I was going out the door to our regularly scheduled daily morning time in the office. She was letting me know to come dressed and ready to participate in a promotional video. This was the first I heard of it. She apparently decided in her head that it would be a great day to do a video, but was moving so fast that she hadn’t told anyone… not me and not even Scott! It was Scott who reminded her that she was “leaving the station without all the cars”. I’m really flexible, so this was no big deal for me. I just put on some extra blush and rushed out the door. Amy was very apologetic when she realized what she did.
This experience was a defining moment for me in understanding how a Manifesting Generator truly works. She hadn’t intentionally skipped a step. She just responded so quickly to the opportunity to shoot the video that it seemed to catapult her forward before she had a chance to bring everyone else along. She didn’t mean to leave the station without all the cars. Her engine just lurched her ahead.
So much has changed on our team in these few short weeks we have been together. We let go of most of our original experiments. We have switched some of the business that we started out associating with. We quickly discovered that the routine that we agreed to try wasn’t working form us. Much to my relief and Amy’s too, we no longer feel that we need to keep regular office hours. Amy’s routine was always to work from home, and so was mine. We also gave up the office space, preferring to meet in coffee houses where we can relax and feel free to chat without interruptions.
The biggest challenge I had when some of these routines began to shift, was feeling like I was staying connected and informed. After several cancelled “regularly scheduled” team meetings, I needed to speak up about how I felt and help guide the process of how and when we meet into a more workable format. For us that no longer meant every Tuesday at 10:00 am. It means meeting over coffee on a day and time that feels good for all of us several times a month. In between, we text, email and call to keep each other informed as we’re each doing our thing for the team.
The 34/20 channel of the Manifesting Generator is part of the individual circuitry of the Human Design chart. Amy has this along with other gates which assist me in feeling empowered when I’m around her. As we concluded our meeting today she commented on how much more free she feels without all of the restrictions that “the experts” wanted her to try as a team leader. She feels free to be who she is and work in the way that feels authentic to her. I echoed her feelings with my appreciation for having that freedom as well. I am free to set my own schedule and work in spurts… as I am designed to do. And now that I have provided some gentle guidance about what I need in order to feel connected to the team, I feel even more secure in my freedom.
BTW I am still very much involved in Human Design Life Coaching. As I learn and grow from my experiences in real estate I’m also getting clearer about the focus of my coaching work. If you want to know more about where I’m headed and how you can ride along, check out Harmonious Work & Life
