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:
#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.
