The Art of Being - Human Design Generators and Manifesting Generators
There is a very simple art to being a Human Design Generator, also known as a Builder in the BG5 Career and Business language.
WAIT TO RESPOND
Simple? Yes. Easy? Well....
Unless raised from birth correctly
(as yourself), perhaps not.
If you are a Generator (the life-force of our planet, built to create and sustain humanity), your aura has the perfect and unique power to respond from your Sacral Center.
You are here to respond to what life asks of you. You bring the vitality and aliveness that keeps our world running!
Waiting to make a decision from your sacral (and waiting further for emotional clarity if you have the solar plexus defined) is your key to finding the true satisfaction that life has to offer you.
No matter what Aura Type you are, there are grave consequences in not using your energy correctly.
Not using your energy successfully leads to health issues, burnout, depression, overwhelm, stress, exhaustion, and unhappiness. How can you use your power correctly?
My mom is a Generator (with Manifesting potential, to be more precise). I dedicate this article on her behalf to all of you Mothers out there, Generator or not.
This article is part of a new group of learning "Units" in our Facebook Group on the Pure Generator/Classic Builder.
Over 70% of the humans on our planet are Generators (check out the statistics here). As the dominant Type, they stand alone as the only kind of people whose power comes from their ability to make decisions from a center that responds through sounds.
We truly live in a generated, Generator world.
The nature of the Generator is that they are sacral beings. You can read more about the Sacral Center in this article. The Generator is the kind of human that is here to respond to what life brings to it. Through decision making in honor of the form, from the sacral center, following that gut response, the perfection of the Generator is realized.
The sacral center is the center of life - the core of our reproductive capacity, generating our energy for life and work. It is the Generator that creates and maintains the civilization we see around us. As the great builders, with the capacity to sustain work, they find fulfillment in activities they enjoy which bring them satisfaction. Our lives depend on the reproductive, fertile power of sacral beings. To quote Ra, "It is all in the hands of the Generator."
The glory and power of the Generator is in their ability to respond to life. Not to be chasing after things, but to wait to respond to life as it comes to them, to respect what the sacral draws to it, and honor what it has the energy to respond to.
The dilemma of the "not-self" or deeply conditioned Generator is that they do not use their generative capacity correctly. Incorrect energy usage (for example, trying to manifest what the mind thinks it wants without waiting for the sacral to respond) results in the dysfunction of that sacral center, experienced as frustration. Frustration is the not-self theme of a Generator - who through the not-self conditioning tries to manifest in this world without waiting and ends up quitting from sheer frustration.
Generators are designed to take in life in an extraordinary way.The Generator has an open, welcoming aura that wraps around everything it draws to it. It is an embracing aura. If you are a Generator, do you want to understand where your true power lies? It's time you understood the mechanical functioning of your sacral-being auric truth; the depth of your openness to life allows you to hone in on what is correct for you to respond to.
So how do you "be" a Generator? Many Generators feel "stuck" in jobs, relationships, or lives they hate, simply because they've been deeply conditioned. Billions of Generators have no idea about their true potential nor experienced the satisfaction of what it means to be themselves.
Their glorious sacral centers have been shut down so many times by outside forces. From childhood, others told them to use their words or their minds instead of the guttural tones that naturally arise from their powerful sacral motor.
The Art of Being that the Generator is here to perfect is to wait to Respond to life. Responding - waiting for that unmistakable response of your sacral center - honors the deep inner knowing of that sacral center of when and what it can find satisfaction in doing.
If you are a Generator, make decisions ONLY in response. Everything in life that is correct for you as a Generator is only going to come to you as something you respond to.
The beauty of the Generator is that you can tune into your sacral voice, your sacral sounds that have the power to respond to life. No other form has such a mechanism.
A note to "Manifesting Generators" - you are not a separate Aura Type of your own, and your built-in innovative power needs to be released in response. It can be very frustrating and create a lot of anger if you initiate manifestation without the benefit of waiting for a response.
Many MG's have manifesting potential - it can be satisfying to do so in response and alignment with your personal Authority. As your Aura functions the same as a pure Generator, your strategy for correct alignment of decision-making is the same.
All Generators have an open aura - enveloping, embracing other beings in an auric bear hug. Generators, you are open to auric contact, and in that openness you are taking in everything and grabbing it. Is is right for you? Follow your gut response - and be patient, giving it time, if you are emotional!
Remember, the Aura IS you. How you function in the world is based upon this one essential quality that you cannot control - the way your Aura operates.
If you are a Generator, your aura has the perfect and unique power to respond from the sacral center. You are here to respond. Waiting to make a decision from your sacral (and waiting further for emotional clarity if you have the solar plexus defined) is your key to finding the true satisfaction that life has to offer you.
Like all of the Arts, the key to perfecting is to practice. And as a Generator, waiting to respond is the Strategy that protects you from the dysfunction of your sacral center, the powerful feeling of frustration that can leave you feeling incredibly stuck and wanting to quit.
