Manifesting Generator

From a pure Human Design perspective, Manifesting Generators are considered a variation of the Generator Type, yet some HD folks are calling them the 5th Type. No matter how you categorize them, Manifesting Generators (33% of the Generator Type) have a defined Sacral like pure Generators (37% of Generator Type) but also have a connection between a motor and their Throat Centre which enables them to move quickly from response to manifestation! This allows them to see which steps are essential and which steps can be missed, resulting in greater efficiency in the creative process. Yet this same gift of efficiency can create a dilemma for them which is impatience and moving through a project so fast that they skip important steps. Then they have to go back and complete those steps which can lead to frustration and anger.

In contrast, pure Generators, on the other hand, have no motor connected to the Throat so they will hit plateaus of energy in their creative process. And at each of these plateaus, they need to be initiated again with new input, insight, instruction or information before responding.

When the Sacral response hits the Throat Centre of an MG, the centre of communication and manifestation, the MG likely wants to get into full action mode before acknowledging there’s even been a response.

So the advice is “Patience, Grasshopper!” MG’s are so fast, they can act like Manifestors, initiating instead of responding like the Generators they are. It may take more practice and patience for MG’s to re-establish a connection to and trust in their Sacral.

The advice for a Manifesting Generator in making decisions is:

#1 wait
#2 feel the authenticity of your sacral response – did you tap into your sacral or did you respond with your mind? If it was from your mind, take a moment and drop your awareness down into your belly, place your hands on your lower abdomen, breathe and listen to your sacral response.
#3 respond

AUTHORITY

SACRAL

Sacral Authority is your belly’s knowing or intelligence. It’s how you know if a decision is correct for you or not.

If your chart has the Sacral Centre, 2nd box up from the bottom, coloured in/defined and your Solar Plexus Centre is white or open, you have Sacral Authority.

WHAT THIS MEANS

Having Sacral Authority means that your inner source of truth is rooted deep in your body, in its energetic gut response to life. Notice when “uh-huh, ohhhhh, yah, eeek, nah, oh-oh, uhm hmmmm”…. comes out of your gut and through your voice box. Your sacral grunts, groans and moans are the voice of your Sacral centre communicating about whether or not it has the energy for something/someone. That gut response is your “yes,” “no” or “maybe” in response to an outside stimulus.
*This is not instinct or intuition (both found in the Splenic centre) nor the feelings or emotions (from the Solar Plexus).

How to access your Sacral Authority:
If you’re a Manifesting Generator with Sacral Authority… when someone asks you a question that you can respond yes or no to, this allows your Sacral to respond. So when you’re making a decision about something, get a friend to ask you questions like, “Do you want to take this next course?” Your mind might jump in right away with an “answer,” but to access your Authority correctly, drop down into your gut (not your mind) and pay attention to how your belly responds to that question… in this moment. THAT’s your inner, sacral authority.

A Manifesting Generator’s Sacral truth lives in the NOW.

QUESTIONS TO ASK:

What does my belly say about this?
Do I want to do this? (listen to your gut)
Do I have the energy for this? (listen to your gut)
Is the life force itself rising up from my belly with a “yahoo?” Or is it a “hmmm.” Or a “nah”? (If it’s a “yahoo,” go for it, if it’s a “hmmm” or “nah,” it’s not for you in this moment – move on to something else)

TO BE AWARE OF:

Often your Sacral leads you right into a movement toward engaging in the decision. For example, you might find yourself putting on your coat and gathering the dog leashes before even realizing that your sacral said “yes” to walking the dogs. While this is correct for a Manifesting Generator, remember to “take a moment” to check in with the authenticity of your sacral response before taking action.

As a Manifesting Generator, feeling frustrated and angry is a sign that you’re likely not in alignment with who you truly are. When you feel satisfied, that’s a sign that you’re grooving as you! The more you listen to and follow your Sacral Authority, the more you’ll be living true to you and your magic.

AUTHORITY

SOLAR PLEXUS

Solar Plexus Authority: It’s how you know if a decision is correct for you or not. This Authority is about making decisions when you’re emotionally clear, the nervousness is gone, and it feels right to do it.

If your Solar Plexus Centre, the far right lower triangle, is coloured in/ defined, you have Solar Plexus Authority.

WHAT THIS MEANS

If you have Solar Plexus/Emotional Authority, it’s likely that your most aligned decisions appear when you’re emotionally clear. “Sleeping on it” is one of the best things you can do for yourself when you feel emotionally charged around a particular decision. This is because you’ve got what’s called an emotional wave. These waves move from highs to lows and back again. If you make a decision in a high or low state, chances are you will end up frustrated. If you have Solar Plexus Authority, PATIENCE is the key. Riding the emotional wave takes time to get to relative (usually 75-95%) clarity. Once the nervousness is gone and you’re emotionally clear, it’s a great time to make a decision.
There is no truth in the now for someone with Emotional Authority. Take your time!

How to ride your emotional wave:
Don’t make any big decisions when you’re on the high or low end of your wave. If you can be present with your emotions without story and without judgement, you’ll eventually notice that the wave changes. Once the nervousness is gone, you have an optimal point to choose. Let others know you need some time before you commit to something. You need TIME to get to emotional clarity, which may be especially challenging for you with your sacral to throat connection that wants to manifest as soon as it gets a sacral hit!

QUESTIONS TO ASK:

How do I (really) feel about this?
Do I feel nervous or pressured to make this decision? (If so, take your time until that angsty or nervous feeling is gone)

TO BE AWARE OF:

Emotional Authority is challenging for a Manifesting Generator who feels huge pressure to manifest right away. However it’s crucial for an MG to take their time until they have emotional clarity. The more present you can be with your emotional wave, without identifying with it, the more ease you will have with your emotions and moods. And so will those who are within your aura. Don’t make decisions in a pressured state.

STRATEGY

TO RESPOND

Strategy: The strategy is the way your energy type can maximize the way you attract opportunities and synchronicities. It means making decisions with your own authority, and not based on the authority of others.

WHAT THIS MEANS

Waiting to respond is the Manifesting Generator’s Strategy which means being open to possibilities and tuning in to your Sacral knowing.

It means making decisions with your own authority, and not based on the authority of others.

HONE YOUR CRAFT, LIVE YOUR ART

If responding is your Strategy as a Manifesting Generator, it means your body and your energy is constantly responding to life. You have a built-in compass to let you know what you and your body have the energy for or not. In truth, you respond all the time. Your sacral response is not something you have to learn… rather… all you have to do is to start paying attention to your sacral responses and follow them as a strategy for making life decisions!

QUESTIONS TO ASK:

When making big decisions, have a friend ask you yes and no questions so that your Sacral can respond. Remember, your gut response is key to your empowerment!

TO BE AWARE OF:

Be aware of your impulse to initiate. This will be especially challenging for you with your motor-to-throat connection that wants to manifest right out of the gate! Remember that ‘initiating’ is the Strategy of a Manifestor Type, NOT a Manifesting Generator.
When you wait to respond to that life force energy rising up within your body before taking action, you’ll be heading in the right direction for you. Your aura will bring you the people, the money and the resources you need… TRUST in your warm enveloping aura that is open, waiting and responsive. It’s part of your magical genius!

SIGNATURE

SATISFACTION

Signature: Your signature is what your energy was naturally designed to experience, and it is probably what you crave the most out of life.

WHAT THIS MEANS

You know you’re living in alignment with who you are when you are satisfied. Satisfaction is the signature for a Manifesting Generator.

HONE YOUR CRAFT, LIVE YOUR ART

The sense of satisfaction within is a sign letting you know you are living in alignment with your design. All Generators including Manifesting Generators find their life through their work and through how they respond to using their daily supply of energy. The right work transforms their lives and slows down the degenerative process of their bodies. It’s so important to engage in what lights you up!

QUESTIONS TO ASK:

Do I know the voice of my Sacral yes and no?
Do I follow it even though it doesn’t always make sense to my mind?

TO BE AWARE OF:

Sometimes what your Sacral says yes to might scare your mind, especially the way you’ve always done things. That might not feel so satisfying at first. But remember, you don’t have to figure out HOW it will all work out. Just listen to and follow your Strategy and Authority and see what happens. It’s all a grand experiment!

NOT-SELF THEME

FRUSTRATION/ANGER

Not-Self Theme: Each energy type has a different emotion that tends to surface when we are misaligned from our design. This emotion is called the not-self theme.

What this means …

The dilemma of the not-self Manifesting 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 centre, experienced as frustration or anger.

HONE YOUR CRAFT, LIVE YOUR ART

While “frustration” is a sign for a Generator that they’re not living in alignment with their true self, “anger” is a sign for a Manifestor Type. Manifesting Generators may feel both anger and frustration because “patience” is not their strong suit, yet patience is what they’re here to learn.
Waiting to respond doesn’t mean “doing nothing.” While you’re waiting to respond, you can be actively engaged in generative conversations and activities, yet there is a “waiting” quality to it. Be Relaxed. Alert. Waiting. Be RAW. When you operate from this RAW state, you will learn to be present enough to listen to your Sacral response and move when guided.

QUESTIONS TO ASK:

What’s my motivation here? Did I respond to something or someone? Am I acting out of pressure from others? Am I trying to prove something? Did I initiate this out of boredom or fear? Have I enslaved myself to someone else’s will, need or vision for me? There are many personal, public and professional institutions that benefit from owning, directing and using the Generator life force energy. Is my life force energy being owned and used by someone else? Is it correct for me?

When frustrated/angry, ask yourself, Have I been initiating instead of responding? (If so, go back to waiting, tuning into your Sacral, and then responding)

TO BE AWARE OF:

Manifesting Generators are more prone to impatience and aggression than pure Generators. Because of the motor connection to the throat, they may tend to bypass their Sacral sounds. It takes the MG more practice and patience to re-establish a connection to and trust in their Sacral.
***To transmute frustration/anger to satisfaction, follow your Strategy and Authority.

From the mundane to the magical!
