When your sacral center Is defined you are a Generator. As a Manifesting Generator you have sustainable energy from your sacral center and are here to master your work and LOVE what you do. This motor turns off and on, so you must wait to respond before acting. In addition you also have a channel that connects your Emotional Solar Plexus motor to your Throat Center. By having a motor to the throat you are able to manifest. When energy from one of the motors gets to the throat, then what we say has power and force. It enables us to create. It Impacts others. It can be heard. You can empower people just by your presence, as your energy Is able to fill In other people's channel to their throat (if they don't have one on their own).
So not only do you have sustainable energy, but It also has consistent access to the energy of impacting and creating. But this energy Is only available to the Sacral Center. Manifesting Generators are uniquely designed to move quickly and to multitask. They are highly capable and often prefer to handle things themselves rather than explain to someone else what to do.
Strategy - Wait to Respond, Inform, then Act
Because Manifesting Generators have the Sacral Center, they are designed to live In response. Thus, they must wait for the Sacral Center to be turned on before engaging. It Is not enough for the Manifesting Generator to have the thought "I need a vacation," then book the vacation. They need something from the outside world to flip that switch. Say their best friend says "You look like you could use a vacation." The Sacral turns on, they have a yes response (body expansion, verbal uh-huh or excited facial expression). But they can't just go book the vacation; they need to Inform their boss, partner, or whomever It will Impact. There's a tendency to want to act on their own, but when they Inform, they have a better possible outcome.
5 tips for Manifesting Generators
1) Learn to inform others
In addition to waiting to respond, Manifesting Generators must also inform others. With the connection to their throat center, they will be impacting people, and when they learn to let people in on the projects they are working on, they will have a far easier time completing their goals. They incline to move forward once they have the sacral response to something. They tend to get completely absorbed and forget the outside world. Project isolation can get them into trouble in their relationships with others. The key is to remember to include the people around them in what they are doing, and things will unfold much more smoothly. Remember that not everyone is as adept as you and will need to be told what's going on.
2) Learn to ask for help
Manifesting Generators are so talented and efficient; they tend to want to do everything by themself. Doing everything on their own can lead to burnout and take a toll on their energy supply. There will be times when it's right to ask for help, which can be challenging for them to recognize and accept. A few tools that can help are body scan meditations, regular check-ins with an accountability partner/spouse and say what's working and not working. Through these types of exercises, you might realize you have aches/pains, repressed emotions and some key warning signs telling you to slow down and ask for support.
3) Learn how to be in a relationship with others
Because they don't need people in the same way that most do, they can be challenging to be in a relationship with, especially if their partner wants more time and connection. If their partner can support them with space and time to work on their projects solo, then the relationship can work well. Clear communication and informing others will help mitigate misunderstandings in their relationships. But the Manifesting Generator needs to be aware of their absorption and navigate the needs of their partner in a healthy and balanced manner.
4) Know your intention and why
If a Manifesting Generator is not harnessing their Sacral Center inner GPS, their tremendous energy can be unfocused. They tend to be very busy doing multiple things, and having scattered energy not backed by intention or a heartfelt why can lead to burnout. It's key to recognize their limits and not push themselves to overdo things they aren't passionate about. Remember, Generators are to do work that they love! Not just use their energy to check things off their to-do list.
Regular spiritual practices, whether that's going out in nature, praying, meditating, singing or dancing, can help Manifesting Generators connect to something larger than them. In return, their intentions and life purpose will become more apparent.
5) Have healthy outlets for frustration and anger
Like a Pure Generator, the Manifesting Generator can become easily frustrated when resistance and blocks occur. They must sort out where their Sacral Center is guiding them. Sometimes their best strategy is to shift directions, while other times, they need to stay and obtain mastery. Also, anger can arise for Manifesting Generators when things don't go their way. It can get ugly, as many of them unleash these emotional sensations internally on themselves or others.
The key is to have healthy outlets for your frustration and anger. Try a high-intensity workout, hit a pillow and scream. Clear this energy, and then do an activity that excites you. Get that Sacral energy flowing again and tune into your internal GPS. Where is it guiding you?
