Starting with Basics | Generators and Projectors

Generators

Human Design GeneratorAbout 70% of human beings are Generators. Generators are said to be the natural workers of the world. Their aura is open and enveloping and they attract life to them. Notice I said “attract life to them.” What are most people doing? They are going after life! The Generator need not go after life, they are life.

The healthy “strategy” for the Generator is to “wait.” Wait for what? Wait for life to come your way. How is that possible, you might wonder? Nothing will happen! Continue reading

Response is Specific

A couple of months ago, after I finished crocheting a poncho for myself, a friend asked me if I would make one for her. She rarely asks for anything and I was happy to do it. She gave me the yarn and I got started. Around this time, she’d also said something about writing up and selling the pattern for the poncho in the store where she works. I thought, “OK,” but it was not really that important to me and I did not commit one way or the other.

About a week after I’d started working on it, I got a weird feeling, that she asked me to make it for her but she really wanted me to make it for the store to go with my pattern. Notice, I opened by saying that she rarely asks for things, so missing that cue is on me. Continue reading

Emotional Authority | No Truth in the Now

 In a world where get-it-done now is the norm, I can only imagine what Emotionally defined humans (Generator, Projectors or Manifestors) must contend with when they first decide to experiment with “waiting through their wave” for clarity. However, I have witnessed the positive difference it can make when emotional beings give themselves the time they need to feel their way through a decision. Continue reading

The Shock of my 1st Human Design Reading

I guess it’s a good thing I’m designed to withstand a little shock in my life (Personality Sun in the 51st gate). When I got my first reading in October 2009, and then started to actually absorb the “news,” it WAS shocking. Everything I’d been trained to do to be successful, and everything I was helping others do for the same result, was challenged.

First of all, what is so special about being similar to about 70% of the people on the planet? Plus, who wants to be a Generator; I’d rather be a Manifestor! Too bad. Continue reading

Experimenting with Waiting | In the Beginning

experimenting with waiting - human designI was a relatively successful business coach when I learned about my Design. It was suggested to me that I start very simply, to practice “waiting” in traffic when driving my car, and in grocery store lines. OK, that could be fun, but what about my business? In business, we are taught that it’s up to us to make things happen, and so I was curious about how this would work in real life.

I started to experiment with “waiting” at networking events. I already had a policy to only attend events that I was drawn to. I added one more ingredient. Continue reading
