For all those interested in Human Design, I've rounded 5 tips for Manifestors. New to Human Design? Get a free reading on My Body Graph or Google "free Human Design graph". There are 5 Aura types in Human Design; manifestors, reflectors, projectors, manifesting generators and generators. Today we will be talking about Manifestors.
If your chart has an open (white) Sacral Center and one of the other three motors going to the throat center you are a Manifestor. Only 8 percent of the population are Manifestors. With an open Sacral Center, Manifestors do not have sustainable energy or that inner GPS. Instead, the open Sacral Center takes in and amplifies all the Generator energy around them. Manifestors can do more than Generators and Manifesting Generators but only for a while. If they try to sustain this energy, it leads to burn out. Manifestors need rest and alone time to cool down from being exposed to the rev up from Generators motors. They are vulnerable to not knowing when enough is enough and can overdo it.
Manifestors are here to impact people, situations, and projects. They are here to get things moving. They are designed to initiate a process, then step out and let the Generators do the legwork to build. Since Manifestors don't have a defined Sacral Center they don't have to wait to respond. Yet since they don't have that clear inner guidance system, Manifestors often need to take an experimental approach to see what will work. As a powerful force, Manifestors have a closed repelling aura. They have typically been leaders in our culture. Having a motor to the throat means they don't depend on others to take action and can be loners paving their own way.
Having a non-verbal process requires time to cultivate, and they need to be allowed to be in their creative process flow. Interruptions and help from others can break their flow; it's important that Manifestors have enough time and space with their thoughts.
The strategy for Manifestors is to inform. At times the power and impact of Manifestors can be intimidating and challenging to others. They are designed to do what they want when they want. In today's society, this can be unwelcomed behavior "stay in line" can be mumbled from the sidelines. That's why when Manifestors inform people; they stand a far greater chance of diminishing resistance they might encounter.
If interrupted or when things don't go their way, Manifestors can get angry. This can be tough on both the Manifestor and the people around them. Manifestors need to find proper outlets for their anger to avoid shutting down their creative flow.
5 Tips for Manifestors
Tip 1 - Learn to balance time alone and time with others
While we admire individuality, we also value connection, and it can be not very clear to Manifestors where they fit on that scale. They are fiercely independent and aren't always team players. Especially if other people on the team have opposing opinions or when authority tries to tell them what to do.
It's essential to create space and time alone to work on your projects and ideas. When working in team settings, be aware that your anger might flare if someone argues your viewpoints and tries to tell you to do something that you disagree with it. Just by being aware of this, you can calm the internal dialogue and body sensations that arise.
Tip 2 - Create healthy outlets for anger
Anger can arise for Manifestors 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 anger. Try a high-intensity workout, hit a pillow and scream. Clear this energy, and then do an activity that excites you. Time alone or out in nature to connect back to your vision and something bigger than you can help soothe your pent up negative energy. Find self-soothing techniques that work for you. With your power and anger, you can create an unstable environment and repel others. Learn to manage how you handle your anger both internally and externally.
Tip 3 - Know when enough is enough
You take on the energy of the Generators around you, which leads to not knowing when enough is enough. You can risk burnout out or be perceived as "too much". You may overindulge in unhealthy self-soothing behaviors, not knowing when to stop engaging in these negative patterns.
Create a schedule that allows solo time. Cultivate spiritual practices that allow you to clear the energy of others and get back to your natural energy cadence. Write a list of healthy self-soothing techniques such as meditation, taking a bath, going for a walk, whatever feels best for you.
Tip 4 - Cultivate mindfulness or inner guidance practices
Without the inner guidance system of the Sacral Center you are meant to experiment with your ideas and see what sticks. This can be incredibly challenging as you might feel pressure to know what is next. Release that pressure by cultivating mindfulness or spiritual practice that allows you to relax into the present moment. Everything is unfolding exactly as it should. Trust in the divine plan. Be curious and open to the present moment. Learn to surrender to the now, and you will uncover a new way of being with less worry and pressure to perform. You are powerful and impactful; trust in that knowing.
Tip 5 - Schedule in rest, relaxation and isolation time
You are not designed for our cultural norm of school and work from nine to five. You simply do not have sustainable energy. You do best by initiating a project and then leaving the work aspect to the Generators. Create space in your schedule for downtime and rest away from all the Sacral motor energy. You'll need to learn to pay attention and manage your energy levels. Naps and solo time are daily musts!
