Welcome fellow souls to « The Human Family Crash Course Series, » a new project collaborated together by empress2inspire.blog and sensispirit.wordpress.com. Together we will be working on a different topic for each crash course; our second topic is focused on «Western Esotericism.» Each topic will have eight posts with posts on Mondays and Thursdays. We hope you enjoy our series and we look forward to knowing how our posts have inspired you!
9 Energy Centres
There are 9 energy centres in human design body graphs. The crucial thing to understand is that each centre ‘communicates’ and crosses over with the designs of other people, meshing together in a daily dance and influencing all our interactions on a moment-by- moment basis.These invisible energies are forever interweaving by simply being in the same room as someone else. So, on the surface, our eyes and mouths may well be doing all the obvious communicating, but it’s the powerful undercurrents of the nine centres that are doing the real work, pulling out strings on a deep bio-energetic level.
The 9 Centres are as follows :
- The Crown
- The Mind
- The Throat
- The Self
- The Heart
- The Spleen
- The Emotions
- The Sacral
- The Root
Once you understand how different designs interface, engage and communicate, you’re better able to understand the dynamics and under currents running beneath all relationships and associations. It is basic quantum physics – the fact that everything in the Universe consists of vibrations and energy and that we are an integral part of that same energy. All that needs to be understood is something which is supported by science – that the nine centres of the Human Design system interface between the Universe’s energy and the energy within all of us, translating it into individual functions and expressions.
5 Energy Types
What type of person do you think you are? If you had one minute to sum up your nature with a self-appraisal that allowed you to be understood and recognized on first impression, what would you say?
The world is a colourful assortment of approximately seven billion different characters and there are endless descriptions of different types. Sometimes we’re identified by our jobs and professions: the executive type, the labourer type or care-giving type. Or we stand out by personality: the shy type, the confident type, the thoughtful type or reckless type.
Which is where Human Design comes in. It recognizes five types of person, five types that we’re designed to be:
- Manifesting generators
Your type is determined by noting which centres, if any, you have defined, and to which other centres they connect. Put simply, your type depends on which of the nine centres are in colour. It reveals some of the most insightful information about you – and others. And once you understand someone’s natural state of being, it allows you to rethink your approach to them. Of course, old habits die hard, and long-established behavioural patterns are notoriously difficult to break. But Human Design encourages us to break down stereotypes, see the real person and interact in a far more authentic way.
Every human being carries a unique encoding by birth, a basic structure for the self. Life is oriented towards the unfolding of these innate potentials. The Human Design chart, called the Body Graph, is a visual representation of the sum total of human possibilities and energies. The entire archetype of humanity is contained within the structural framework of the chart. In other words, all of the possibilities for the expression of being human is in the chart. The Body Graph shows us the different ways we love, hate, lead, follow, learn, know, grow and so much more.
There are 32 channels in the Human Design Body graph. Each channel has two halves called the Gates. So there are 64 gates. The 64 gates correlate to the 64 Hexagrams in the I’Ching. Each active gate in your chart adds a different flavour to your “personality”. It is not an accident that the graphic construct of tone, the triangle, because in fact color is a hexagon and base is a square that tone graphically is a triangle and this triangle mirrors, in an eerie way, it mirrors the BodyGraph itself.
In other words, this is the underlying architecture. This is the basic plan that’s here underneath, but by the time that basic plan, that tone is integrated holistically into the vehicle we don’t know whether that information has actually moved across. Because color is something that transfers and if somebody is not-self they are cut off from their cognition, and therefore they’re cut off from their architecture underneath.
