The Human Design Manifestor: The Producers

Manifestors are one of the rarest Types in the Human Design system, making up approximately 8% of the population. Manifestors are the only Type who are pure energy beings because they have a direct defined channel from the Throat Center to one or more of the motors–(Will Center, Root Center and Emotional Solar Plexus). However, a Manifestor never has a Sacral Motor (Sacral Center) defined. This means that Manifestors, in spite of their tremendous initiating energy, are not here to work in a sustainable fashion. A regular Monday-through-Friday, nine-to-five job is exhausting for a Manifestor and most Manifestors, when faced with that as their work option, will feel exhausted or even angry. Because the open Sacral takes in work force energy and amplifies it, it can work intensively for a short period of time, but not for a long period of time. The open Sacral is not here to work in the traditional way. The open sacral types are not here to work sustainably. They cannot maintain the traditional work schedule forever. Projectors crash at 40. Manifestors seem to be able to hang on a bit longer, 45 – 52. Burnout can manifest as an auto-immune disorder, depression…the body eventually breaks down if the Manifestor does not leverage her energy correctly.

Manifestors absolutely have to be out in the world making things happen for their life. They are the billiard ball on the billiard table. A Manifestor who does not initiate will fry their circuits. You are an energy volcano, and if that energy has nowhere to go you will shut down, your creativity will shut down and you might also get sick. Your Life Purpose is often about leading change by sharing new ideas, pushing people beyond their comfort level, and empowering them to do things in new ways.

When a motor is directly connected to the Throat Center, it gives a person the energy to start things such as conversations and businesses without waiting. (Unlike the other four types.) A Manifestor will have a powerful voice and a powerful presence. When a Manifestor speaks or enters the room, most people will feel their energy. Because Manifestors are the only Type who can truly just do things without waiting, the energy of a Manifestor can make people a little uneasy or uncertain. No one ever really knows what the Manifestor is about to do. When a Manifestor gets an idea, they just go do it. And they can usually do it quite well. They are designed to just do things.

Manifestor Strategy: Inform
The Manifestor strategy is to inform others of their actions before they take action. However, Manifestors move so fast that they feel that it takes too much time to explain. Ultimately, slowing down and informing others about what they’re doing, as angry as it makes them, will in the long run save the Manifestor a lot of time and disruption, judgment and misunderstanding.

A powerful Manifestor can soften the impact of her energy and harness it energy to serve herself and others by taking note of all the people who will be impacted by her actions and then tell them what to expect. Informing does not come naturally for Manifestors and they may feel controlled or manipulated by their impact field. Manifestors are not here to be told what to do. Most Manifestors do not tell others what they are doing because they learned very early on that others will try to stop them or tell them that what they want to do is not possible. But, Manifestors who understand that informing can improve their relationships and remove resistance will create support for their power and creative energy. It is important for Manifestors to remember that just because they inform doesn’t mean that they have to stop or change what they are doing. They are just letting people know what to expect.

In addition to informing, Manifestors also feel more loved and respected when they themselves are informed about what is happening. If you love a Manifestor, inform them about what you are doing. It helps them create and takes away some of the natural anger that can be triggered in the Manifestor.

What are some of the challenges for the Manifestor? All of the other types have a decision-making strategy that is sourced or rooted in the external world. They have an opportunity to wait for things to manifest in their outer reality and confirm for them what direction to go in. Manifestor inspiration comes from within, but because of that there can be some hesitancy and lack of clarity about what to do. Often, the Manifestor just has to do it. Only after the fact will they know whether it’s correct for them or not. It is important that the Manifestor maintain an inner connection with themselves or their higher power. A Manifestor must have a connection to an internal voice that’s bigger than them in order for them to have clarity for where they need to go, what to do next.

The emotional theme of Manifestors is anger. Anger often happens when people try to slow you down, help you, or tell you you can’t do something. Not having the skills to manage anger properly can sometimes be destructive. Manifestors often struggle with knowing when enough is enough. If you’re a Manifestor, it’s important to gauge the impact of what you’re doing to make sure you’re not frying everyone else’s energy and burning them out.

The Manifestor Aura. The aura is an invisible energy field that surrounds all living creatures, extending about 6 feet in every direction. Its frequency communicates who we are to others, and governs the way we impact or connect with others. The Manifestor has a closed and repelling aura. The moment someone comes towards a Manifestor, their own aura is pushed back.

Manifestors And Sleep
Sleep can be a big problem for Manifestors. Because Manifestors do not have a defined Sacral Center, they are not designed to be “worn out” at the end of the day like a Generator. Non-sacral people need to lie down and rest before they can fall asleep — before they feel sleepy. This means that Manifestors, Projectors, and Reflectors get healthy sleep when they go to bed and lie down before they are tired. If a non-sacral person waits until they are exhausted to go to sleep, the quality of their sleep may be poor. It is not uncommon for non-sacral people to struggle with insomnia or wakefulness at night.

They will also tend to sleep better by themselves. The time spent alone sleeping helps the Manifestor discharge the extra Sacral energy that they have amplified all day. The idea of sleeping alone can be difficult for Generators to understand but this is not a personal issue. Manifestors will sleep better, feel better and be healthier if they get a chance to renew their energy.

    I have been awakened to my Human Design, and for the first time in my life I feel at home with myself. Thank you.

    • Daniel says:

      Same here Theresa, same here. Are you a manifestor too? I only struggle with finding a way of making money that will allow for such inspirational and innovative impacting on the world. I have zero interest in money per se and it seems to be almost in opposition to the inspiration I am here to bring, but unfortunately one does need to make a living somehow. I know I have a lot to give, but don’t know how to do it. Write books? Articles? May I ask how did you go about this?

      • gloria says:

        Hi, Daniel. Thank you for your comment.

        You are on the road to identifying your calling, and the direction in which you will find it. Since making money is not what draws you, that tells me you are not here to learn how to make money (you likely already have that skill down), or to necessarily make a lot of money.

        I would not put a lot of pressure on yourself to find out what you’re here for. Go easy in getting to know who you really are and what paths will allow you to do this with flow and ease. Finding your purpose and your calling is ultimately about connecting to what fulfills you, to what makes you happy, to what makes your heart sing. When you ask questions like — should I write books? Should I write articles? What should I do, and how do I go about finding what I should do, it tells me that you are already countering the influence of conditioning – the influence of the expectations that your friends, family, and the culture generally, have placed on you. It is important for you to see which of the many things you are looking at as possibilities for your life are truly aligned with you. Which of these things respect you? Honor you? Give you peace of mind and make you feel at home, satisfied, and valued?

        Not everything is yours to do, is your responsibility, or belongs to you. You are designed for certain things, and you came in with a specific agenda, or dharma, for your life. It is this dharma that will help you identify what you are here to do and give.

        How do you know what your dharma is? Follow your bliss, follow your curiosity, follow what calls to you, and keep following that. You will always come to forks in the road, and if you keep following your curiosity, you will know where your next turn is. The forks in the road force us to stay true to ourselves. They force us to be honest about what is truly correct for us. Even when we do take a wrong turn, no experiences are wasted because it is all useful information. If you track in this manner, you will know how to give, how to contribute, and what you should continue to develop in yourself.

        Really, it’s not that hard. When you reframe your thinking that life has to be expressed in certain specific ways to instead allowing yourself to follow your desires, curiosity, and excitement — without putting pressure on yourself for things to look a certain way — then you open yourself to a much bigger horizon of what’s possible for you. Not that you are doing this, but when we try to find our path by attempting to fit all of our interests and yearnings into a neat vocational package, we are actually putting the cart before the horse. Instead, if we allow our desires, passions, yearnings, and so on to lead us, we will give ourselves permission to experience a variety of things, and it is here that we gather the information we need to find where we belong, and what activities and ways of living are correct for us.

        Allow yourself to follow the flow of your interests, and over time you will refine these, and come to know where you want to put more of your time, energy, and attention.

        I invite you to join my facebook community page, Living From Your Essence Community, where I give feedback and reflection on your questions about your experiences, your Human Design and astrology charts, and insights to assist you with your soul’s journey.

  2. John Smith says:

    This is different and better than the other descriptions I’ve seen. I think it’s important to remember we aren’t all the same. I would imagine we’ll drop below 8% as fewer appear over time.

    • gloria says:

      Right! We are not all the same, and as you know, there’s a Manifestor spectrum that includes every single Manifestor. It’s a huge one because each individual Manifestor has a different Design. About the Manifestor energy leaving the planet, that’s what the Ra told us. But aren’t we grateful to all the Manifestors who’ve shown us the way! There’s a Design evolution in play with the coming Solar Plexus Mutation, and we’re all going to be part of it. Thank you for your comment, John.

      • Daniel says:

        Hi Gloria and John, can you tell me more about “the manifestor energy leaving the planet”? I never heard about it.

        • gloria says:

          Hi, Daniel. It has been said that the Manifestor was the ruling human design type for the duration of the 7-centered being. That changed in 1781 when we became 9-centered beings, and the Projector type was born.

          For a long time, Manifestors ruled. They held positions of power over other people in the standard way that this takes place — by having more wealth and resources than others. What they said was how it went and how things were done. Think kings, queens, high priests and priestesses — anyone who had recognized authority that no “commoners” had any real power to challenge.

          My understanding is that Manifestor energy was needed to organize the rest of us. It was not a democratic style of leadership where everyone had a voice and a vote and participated in the decisions that were made — decisions that affected their lives. For good or bad, these were frequently made by Manifestors. That is the power and authority of the motorized throat, and the power of the tremendous amplification of energy that is available to the undefined Sacral. The combination of the two, a motorized throat and an undefined Sacral, produces a highly motivated, highly energized being who takes charge and moves quickly. And you don’t want to be in their way when they’re moving!

          After 1781, humanity crossed a threshold where Manifestors were no longer needed to tell others how to live their lives. This was most often done by decree. Projectors stepped in to become the Guides for others, but not from a seat on the throne, and not by proclamation. Rather, they guide by the invitation that comes when their particular information — facts, insight, and wisdom pertaining to their expertise — is asked for.

          Manifestors are now free to focus on taking charge of their own lives without having to deal with the burden of making decisions for others. That is really not who they are, anyway. Manifestor genius is unleashed when they are allowed to call the shots for themselves, for their own lives, without interference from others. So long as Manifestors let those who will be affected by their actions (just those people) know what they are planning, they are energetically free to go ahead and take action.

          I have heard that there will be a time when the Manifestor design will no longer be, but I need to do research on that. It doesn’t make sense to me, because that design has its purpose and also serves as a role model to others for courage, risk-taking, and innovation. In any case, this is not something that you need to be concerned about. You are here as a Manifestor, it is the design that is with you for the rest of your life, so make the most of it!

  3. Mira B says:

    I’m new to Human Design. My chart says I’m a Manifestor but that doesn’t ring true for me at all. So I’m still struggling to decide if this system is accurate or not. Your article (which appears to just be taken straight from Karen Curry’s Understanding Human Design book) provides a lot of information on what a pure Manifestor is, but I haven’t been able to really discover any information on how a Manifestor reacts to conditioning. Any suggestions?

    • Justine says:

      Hello,

      I can totally relate. The first time I read about the Manifestor, I thought to myself what is this bullshit and even more when I saw that anger was my “theme”…well, it has been a long road and I have as well been doing a Jungian therapy but now that I am letting go the conditioning I can tell you that I sure am a Manifestor…only thing that is not ok for me with Integral human design is that you get the feeling that you are stuck with all that. I know that My aura is closed and repelling BUT that if I trust and love someone it opens and let people in. IN general it is closed and repelling but I can control it and also, yes I am good at initiating BUT for others..a Manifestor has to be of service to others and then he/she will start to have correctness in his or her life…I find the Gene keys a much more soft approach to all this knowledge and it has helped a lot 🙂

      • gloria says:

        Hi, Justine.

        I hear you on “integral” Human Design. If I understand you correctly, you feel that Human Design is often applied in a fundamentalist way such that it boxes people in to a kind of fate where they cannot be other than what their energy type says about them.

        Here’s the thing — remember that you are ALL of the chart because you have all of the chart. You can access any part of it as your circumstances require. The most important thing to keep in mind is your true energy type, your strategy, and authority. This way you will stay in alignment with the energetically correct way for you to pursue your goals. You can be anything you want to be. You are not limited by your energy type.

        Also — what your chart says about you would yield a great deal of information and insight about you as an individual if read with depth and understanding. You are a Manifestor, but who are YOU inside of that? And what is all of your definition?

        Human Design is evolving. I prefer to watch how people are actually expressing their design rather than assume things about them based on the design. There are many variables of expression for each piece of the bodygraph — just as many as there are souls who are expressing their intentions through the design they gave themselves.

        Do not think you are limited by your energy type. It is up to you to push the envelope or the boundaries of expression so that it fits you perfectly, and let the world know that THIS is what a Manifestor can look like, can be, and do!

  4. gloria says:

    Hello, Mira B.

    First, thank you for your comment. I always appreciate interest.

    Second, it’s hard to write about anything in Human Design that doesn’t sound like it was plagiarized from someone else’s work. Human Design is a very specific system, and each component in that system has a certain narrative and certain definitions and understandings. It would be difficult to maintain the integrity of a description if one were to deviate much from standard jargon. As an FYI, the language was not taken from Karen’s book.

    I have taken many courses from the extraordinary Karen Curry Parker — therefore, I may from time to time sound like Karen when I’m writing about Human Design. I appreciate the compliment!

    Regarding your exploration of the Human Design Manifestor and the fact that it is falling short of describing who you are, that could be, as you pointed out, the result of conditioning. We are all conditioned heavily. Another word for that is imprinting. It’s inevitable. It’s how we learn to make our way in the world; it’s our first entry into identity, and it’s how we survive — by adapting to what is expected of us, and behaving inside of the norms and mores of the tribe is the safe thing to do. It will not go well if you try to challenge that too much. Better to wait until you have a solid foundation in yourself, and better to make sure that if you want to do some confronting and arguing, that your battle had better be worth the fight. Otherwise, the bridges of alliance and communication are irrevocably destroyed.

    Eventually conditioning becomes a problem. We all need to find out who we are, what our gifts are, what our real interests are, and what calls to us. Conditioning can get in the way of self-discovery and the experiences that lead to deepening self-knowledge.

    But all is not lost. In fact, nothing may be lost. Often, the best way to find out who you are is to be who you are not. It won’t fit well, and this will start you on your way to find what does fit. You asked about how a Manifestor reacts to conditioning. Conditioning is not something you react to. It is simply something that happens as you grow into becoming a functional member of whatever society you are born into.

    In the initial stages, when we are all learning to more or less obey the tribe/ the rules of civilization, we are being conditioned. Regulation is a useful thing — we need to know what the boundaries are, and what is acceptable. But after a while, who you are will begin to assert itself through your likes and dislikes, and even more importantly, through your choices. When you are energetically aligned with the choices you make, conditioning eventually takes a back seat, and your real self can start blooming.

    I’m happy to work with you privately if you need additional clarification on your questions or want to enter more deeply into what is going on for you at this time.

      I love this comment, “Often, the best way to find out who you are is to be who you are not. It won’t fit well, and this will start you on your way to find what does fit”. As a formerly conditioned emotional manifestor, I thank you! Start as a seeker end as a finder.

  5. Sam Q. says:

    Any advice on recovering Manifestor energy? At 50 I feel like my mind is fried. Poor memory, lack of focus, difficulty in getting anything done. How do you waken up your manifesting potential when it seems to be shut down?

  6. gloria says:

    Hi, Sam. Thanks for posting your comment.

    Dear Manifestor, you are burned out. You are tired, and what you really, really, need is lots of rest. That includes surrounding yourself with beauty, with all things that calm you. Gardens of beautiful things. It’s really important that you maintain a peaceful and loving environment that affirms you and buoys you up. It’s time for a cycle of rest.

    Be with people who see you and appreciate you.

    Keep your heart open by staying connecting to all the people and animals you love. The energy of loving others is very nourishing.

    Make room for play in your life, for fun and enjoyment.

    Above all, stay connected to what you love (your passions will nourish you), and rest, rest, rest. I understand if you cannot rest all the time — but it is imperative that you do only what you HAVE to do. The rest belongs to you.

    After some time you feel renewed and refreshed, and manifesting will come easily to you again. But don’t force it before you’re ready — you need to get your vitality back, and you’ll know when you have that. You won’t be able to help manifesting. It is who you are.

    • Justine says:

      Thank you!

      What you describe is exactly where my deconditionning path has brought me. In my case I used: Shamanism, human design, Gene keys, working with horses, tarots, astrology, Jung, yoga ha ha ha Such a rich Journey and exciting part is that it doesn’t stop 🙂

      • gloria says:

        Hi, Justine.

        May your journey of exploration continue to be rich and exciting, and give you endless insight and knowledge.

  7. Sam Q. says:

    Thanks Gloria! I just thought that maybe it was bad for manifestors to rest too much. BTW what does manifesting really mean? May be an odd question, but how do I know my manifesting is working. Success? Anyone can get up and go start an bus. for example. How is different for a manifestor. Say I want to have an online bus. and a Generator also does. How is that I would manifest and the generator would not?

  8. gloria says:

    Hi, Sam.

    You ask: What does manifesting really mean?

    To manifest is to show, to reveal, to make evident, to make palpable, to make dimensional…to create, to bring something into being.

    We all manifest all the time, but making something happen, bringing something into being can take place at different levels. You don’t have to be conscious or have an intention, for example, to manifest. You can have unconscious motivations that lead to your taking action. Your actions will always cause something to occur, even at the most mundane level.

    When you seek to create something that will take considerable effort, you can work towards its manifestation by streamlining your focus and working out a strategy to get you there. This is deliberate creation as opposed to the accidents that happen because you were being careless with your attention and energy. Your carelessness will cause things to manifest, but you may not want the results.

    There is a new age school of thought that understands manifesting as bringing something into your life that is so far removed from the resources you have to bring it in that causing it to happen is akin to manifesting the miraculous. Realistically, you can manifest what you need by carefully placing your thought, time, attention, and energy on it. Energy also means taking action. Successfully manifesting something also needs the energy of DESIRE. You have to really want it, and you have to believe that you deserve it, and that it is possible to have that. No pretending here.

    Be aware that it is possible to manifest, or bring a situation into being that is not in alignment with your highest interests or the interests of the other parties that may be involved, whether or not they know this. Here’s the thing — if you desire something with enough intensity, whether or not it is aligned with truth and love, you can still bring it into being. This is where we need to be careful around what we wish for! This is where it is really, really important to be honest with ourselves about what it is we truly want, and if what we want is going to benefit everyone affected. Enough energy, intensity and desire will get the ball rolling in the direction you want. The final ingredient is taking the actions that will get you there. Exception: In some cases it is also true that there are some very talented wielders of energy that are able to bring their desired objectives into being just with pure focused intent.

    I prefer to avoid the word success and think in terms of fulfillment. What is it that fulfills you? Success is too often associated with material advances and outward achievements. While those things CAN bring fulfillment, they are not in and of themselves what fulfills you at the core. Fulfillment is related to the meeting the desires of the heart. The heart — not the mind, not the ego.

    A Manifestor’s approach to manifesting is to just go for it. Manifestors are the only energy types that can initiate and not work against themselves energetically. Please keep in mind that as a Manifestor, you are best off by letting those who will be affected by your actions know that you are going to be doing a certain thing — but remember that you don’t need their permission. Just do them the favor of informing them that you are (going to do a certain thing), and then go and do it.

    A Generator cannot initiate. They need to respond to opportunities and suggestions that come to them from their environment, from the external world. Their heart’s fulfillment and the manifestation of what they desire will ultimately come from following the responses that generate excitement and curiosity in them.

  9. Meghann Perc says:

    How does this work for emotional authority manifestors? It seems completely at odds with itself. Manifestors are supposed to act quickly and on inspiration but emotional authorities have to wait until they ride out the wave. How do you know when to act quickly? And doesn’t this run the risk of missing out on inspiration because you are waiting to be in a better mood?

  10. gloria says:

    Hi, Meghann. Thanks for writing.

    An emotional authority Manifestor should ride out their wave and check in with themselves on whether or not an idea they have feels right and is truly in alignment with their principles, and with what they want to accomplish. Once a Manifestor gets going, they go very fast. But before they leap out of the start gate, they should consider whether or not this is something they really want to do. Inspiration may come in a rapid download (or not), but an emotional authority should wait to see if that inspiration feels right along the entire wave before they go bolting out the door. If the inspiration is correct for them, it will not be lost.

    The big thing with Manifestors is this: they don’t need to wait for recognition. They can knock on doors without an invitation or apply for a job that has no ad. And once they get going, they move like a super-hero. But before an emotional authority Manifestor launches, they need to carefully consider whether a thing is correct. Otherwise they can leap off a cliff without a parachute.

    I hope this clarifies for you the difference between moving fast /acting on inspiration and waiting out the wave before you hit the road. Waiting for clarity will not subvert genuine inspiration or impede success. Once you have that clarity, there’s nothing to stop you.

  11. Joy says:

    Thank you for taking the time and energy to inform us so deeply. I only learned I am a Manifestor recently. At first I rebelled; I didn’t want to be one. I could only see negative within it.

    I’m almost 60, burned out, conditioned, with a deep desire to share a message around the globe. I have stepped away from my business, turned my life inside out, upside down and stripped away many layers.

    I yearn to connect to the message I was born to bring, and yet it escapes me. There are times fear grips my throat and heart, terrified of not being able to support myself and family.

    When I’m relaxed, I feel very different. I have invested in many mentors and I gain wisdom and at the same time feel stuck, especially when I put things into the boxes that others fit in.

    Clutching at shiny objects, outsourcing and not trusting myself to have the answers has been an interesting journey. I yearn for peace and play and humour and yet sadness is my ???? can’t remember the name of it. Movement and laughter is my medicine, and yet I don’t seem to have so much of this.

    Like others above, I can’t seem to focus, to find clarity and then I put much pressure on myself. I can feel the push that pushes people away, I don’t like that, I yearn for connection with others and yet don’t have this so much.

    Hmmm does this sound whiny?

    I would love to have the impact I was born to have, to serve, to be the global speaker, and instead, I feel far, far from this.

    I appreciate Your advising rest, connection to our passions, to what lights us up. I tell myself at night I will do this and in the morning it is all gone.

    Love Light Grace and Ease to you fellow Manifestors

  12. gloria says:

    Hi, Joy, thank you for writing.

    I believe that the biggest thing going on with you is that you have just entered your Second Saturn Return. Congratulations. You are in the midst of a deep shift, courtesy of a cycle of time that will inevitably take you deeper into yourself.

    The astrological cycles bring us to new passages, a new fork in the road, and each is rich with the opportunity to dig deep and find your resilience, develop your capacities, find your purpose, and identify your new mission. The key to understanding the transition you are currently in is to recognize that this is a natural cycle, and surrender to it, work with it, and not fear that all is lost. Not having a clear road ahead, a clear direction, or a consistent vision or energy, is part of having crossed a new threshold which is about becoming more of who you are, and leaving behind that which no longer defines you or serves you.

    All transitions come with an ending, and every ending comes with a symbolic death. During this time of disorientation (and even despair), a new beginning will emerge. Be patient with yourself. You cannot force the unfolding of this process. It has its own timing, and that timing has nothing to do with the expediencies or demands of culture. You are in an ending, which always brings grief and confusion. But there is a new beginning. Do not fret.

    With every new beginning an opportunity follows. Watch for it. Hints of the new direction may not be obvious at first. Your initial inclinations may be more subtle and more about an inner knowing. It is important to understand what is emerging within and flow with that new way of being.

    What have you done with your life? You are looking back at the fruits of your labors. You are reviewing the roads traveled, and the roads not taken. The goal is not to be in denial of what transpired during the last 60 years, but to realize that your life is still evolving.

    Did what you created work, or not? Regardless, is it time to let it go? What do you need for this next phase of your life? This is the time when you are creating a new foundation for the new life that is emerging, one that is true to who you are becoming. It is a time for intense review and culling, adjustments, and acceptance that the life you were living is no longer suitable, or available to you anymore. Your horizons have shifted. It may not feel like it, but your life is on the way to greater expansiveness.

    On the way, you may experience these things:

     Reveries of youth are revisited.
     Regret for what was not accomplished
     Imagining the roads not taken
     A need to review the whole of what your life has meant
     If only I knew then what I know now
     Feeling the need to let go of what is no longer essential
     Feeling an unexpected resurgence of creativity

    Experiencing lack of clarity, lack of sustained focus, regret, grief, deep sorrow and confusion is all part of the molting you are now undergoing.

    “In Chinese culture, turning 60 is the single most important birthday of your life, considered to be the completion of one full life cycle, when you are now freed of old responsibilities. It’s believed that this age is the beginning of an entirely new phase where you … can move forward with a new purpose. It’s another yang stage when your energy goes outward again to take new action in the world. The level of vitality you feel at this stage will directly correlate to the amount of willpower you’ve had to use up until this point in your life. We all are born with a deep reservoir of pure will, which is available for us to tap into during challenging times, using it to push through when life gets hard and there’s no choice but to keep going. However, most of us use this will too often and incorrectly, draining it as we charge through everyday life, trying to make things happen—to force, rather than to allow—and that depletes the supply we were meant to draw from in our 60s. But we always have the chance to replenish, to refill the reservoir of will. One way you can do this is to allow yourself what you might call downtime, which is really about rejuvenation and deep rest—for example, a long soak in the tub or time spent in meditation or daydreaming. But on a deeper level, this is about remembering to trust the process, to understand that attempting to force your will on life only drains your energy and can block wonderful things that are trying to come to you, if you’ll just stop and allow.” ~from: Your Hidden Symmetry: How Your Birth Date Reveals the Plan for Your Life, by Jean Haner.

    As a Manifestor, you will likely be impatient to make things happen sooner than later. As someone who is very creative and who may be having difficulty creating, understand that you are crossing a major threshold, and all of the pieces you need to re-emerge are still falling into place. When we are in the midst of deep shifts, it is difficult to manifest anything. This is because when you are in the midst of a big change, the overhaul is such that a new foundation must be created, one that will be expansive enough and aligns correctly with you to give you the space and time and vitality to begin your new life.

    Have patience, and trust the process. Let the process lead you. Be guided by your feelings, your intuition, and the synchronicities that appear out of nowhere. Do not commit to projects that do not appeal to you. Do not go against what feels right for you, what feels like a lot of work with nothing in it for you. This is not the time to be obligated or to feel guilty. Walk through the door that has opened into new territory, and let your sense of adventure and curiosity lead the way. Keep walking, and enjoy the scenery!

    Hi Gloria, I really liked all your answers. I found out about human design just couple of days ago. I am a manifestor and it was such a relief to understand why I don’t like to be surrounded by people. Human Design is helping me day by day understand myself more and more. But as another guest mentioned here earlier, I am struggling when it comes to my income, when it comes to finding a job. Recently I quit a job I loved, but it was one of those 9-5 ones and I felt burned out totally. I changed countries and came home and kept just close friends in my life.

    I started to nourish my relationship with family (cousins, mom, dad, sisters). Each time when it comes to choose a profession, I have difficulty, as each time I choose I enjoy it for a while (2-3 years) and then I get bored when I have nothing new to learn and I change again. I am kind of tired of this. I want to ask you if you can suggest any profession or any direction I can go so I will grow in a field that is for me and that will not burn me out and also stabilize my income so I can focus more on my inner growth. And maybe suggest a way how a manifestor can inform the most effective way. Thank you.

      Hi, Klaudia. Welcome, and thanks for writing.

      It is understandable that you are burned out after several years of working the same job. As a Manifestor, you need your freedom. You need to call the shots for your life. When the energy around you begins to stagnate – as in there is nothing more to be offered to any aspect of you – spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and nothing more to challenge your need for growth AND your need to initiate – then it is time for you to move on. There is really nothing wrong with this. It is necessary for you to explore various situations so that you can find out who you are. You will come to know yourself deeply through the experience of different environments and the people in them. You are learning the limits of what any situation has to offer you, and you are also learning your own limits of what you will tolerate and what you need to be inspired, motivated, and nourished. You are learning what calls to you. Have patience with your process. Know that as you gain more experience, your knowledge of what you are here to do will continue to crystallize for you. You are gathering information. See this gathering as a means to an end, as a reconnaissance mission that is helping you to gain great clarity about what you are here to do. Remember that you are here to do what you are drawn to, what fulfills you and brings you joy. Your job is to dig deep and find out what that is. Surrender to the experiences that are bringing you clarity. Do not see them as a reflection of anything other than they are in your life to give you information.

      I hear you that you want to experience stability. For you as a Manifestor, stability is ultimately about being at peace with your situation and your experiences, and surrendering to the fact that everything is ephemeral. Nothing lasts forever. You may be here to sample a little of this and a little of that, and then move on. The main thing is that you are here to get the ball rolling, and then others can take over. You are not here to finish projects. Your energy opens pathways for others to get in and take over. But we need you to initiate.

      It is, of course, entirely possible that you will connect with a profession that is deeply meaningful and rewarding for you. Even so, in any profession, you will still be an initiator, someone who gives their energy to opening new doors and possibilities that others may not see as clearly as you, if at all, and then they can take over. There will always be a sense of the experimental and impermanent to you because you are an initiator, even though you stay with a profession that you enjoy and develop deep expertise in that profession.

      Informing for Manifestors doesn’t come naturally. And informing others about what you’re up to doesn’t mean asking them for permission to do what you want. Just keep those who are going to be affected by your decisions posted as to what you’re up to. That is not the whole world – people like your roommate or significant other, or your family, and so forth. You will get a lot less resistance from those close to you if you just give them the courtesy of informing, or letting them know what your plans are. Again, if those plans in some way have an impact on them, they have a right to know what you’re up to, but they do not have a right to stop you from pursuing your truth.

      One of the main things you’re here to experience in this lifetime is a deep sense of peace. This comes from your being free to do your thing, free to be you without the people around you resisting, or controlling, or manipulating, or violating you and your integrity.

      Relax and be patient with the process of life as it unfolds on your behalf.

      Warm regards,
      Gloria

    Oh Gloria you are such a blessing. I am so grateful to have discovered my human design. I am exactly like Klaudia. I have started and stopped right at about 3 years. Now I am into coaching women executives, I realize I am truly a speaker at heart as I get burned out at after 8 weeks of coaching. I would love your suggestion on money making…unlike what another gentleman said, I am very much interested in making a large amount of money. I look forward to your response.

      Hi, Monique. Thank you for your comment!

      First things first: if you want to be successful in business you’ve got to:

      * Feel lovable
      * Feel valuable
      * Know how to tap into your unique way of expressing power
      * Trust your intuition and your connection to Source
      * Understand how to use your emotional energy
      * Be relentlessly authentic and aligned with your Soul’s Purpose
      * Know how to leverage fear and find your courage
      * Be energetic and vital and understand the balance between effort and rest
      * Know your unique way of making decisions that are right for you

      Without having these elements in place, you will find that you are starting and stopping a lot, and spinning your wheels. It is important, too, that you understand the specifics of how a Manifestor needs to do business. Your energy flows along circuits that are both an expression of being a Manifestor, and also along the circuits, gates, and channels that are unique to your individual Human Design chart.

      ======================================

      Some business tips from my teacher, Karen Curry Parker:

      Marketing Key:
      Manifestors need to inform potential clients of what the next step is. If you’re a Manifestor you don’t need to ask for the sale. You need to tell the clients what you’re going to do and what they’re going to get. Your sales strategy is very much about get in, share your message, and then get out.

      Examples:
      “I’m going to share a powerful healing technique that is going to dramatically improve your pain.”
      “I’ve got an answer to your struggles.”
      “I have a brand new program that will help you increase your profits in a way that feels good and natural.”

      Business Model:
      Manifestors don’t have sustainable energy so creating a work/rest cycle that supports regeneration and restoration is very important. Have an automated product line mixed with occasional live services is a good mix for a Manifestor.

      Common Traps or Challenges:
      • Working regular 9-5 hours or more is very difficult and unnatural for the Manifestor. As a Manifestor you need to be very conscious about structuring your business around your energy.
      • Manifestors don’t usually make good team players and tend to want to do everything themselves. Delegating can be hard for the Manifestor because it feels “faster” to do it yourself.
      • Manifestors have a unique energy that makes it easier for them to get things started. Sometimes, when you’re a Manifestor, it’s easy to lose your patience with other people who simply are not hard-wired the way you are.
      • The emotional theme of Manifestors is anger. Anger often happens when people try to slow you down, help you or tell you that you can’t do something. Not having the skills to manage anger properly can sometimes be destructive.

      Manifestors often struggle with knowing when enough is enough. If you’re a Manifestor, it’s important to gauge what you’re doing and also make sure you’re not frying everyone else’s energy and burning them out. [END]
      ========================================

      If you are genuinely motivated to make a lot money, and this is a core drive for you, then if you follow your type, strategy, and authority, inform others, and have patience with the process of creating more money, then you will be successful in the way you want to be. The important thing is that you are following what is CORRECT for you. What is AUTHENTIC for you – to your soul purpose, is what will bring you what you are truly seeking. That which you seek will bring you joy and gratitude. And the success that is right for you.

      I would like to further comment that your purpose is ultimately driven by your soul intentions. Bear in mind that the soul is not about hierarchy, ego, or one-upmanship. Your life purpose will not be found there. The soul is about sharing, giving, and receiving. It is about coming from love and being fully present. In its grandest sense, your life purpose is to learn to give and receive love.

      A bit more:
      Your purpose is not necessarily tied to a career; its focus may not be about making lots of money or being famous. On the other hand, maybe your life purpose IS to make lots of money, or maybe your life purpose will have the outcome of making lots of money, but don’t assume that making a buck is your soul’s primary purpose for being in a physical vehicle. Rather than focusing on what vocation will make you the most money, your best road to success is to focus on creating a life that gives you joy and provides you a forum to be of service. If you wind up making a heap of money while doing this, you will know that this is your authentic way to be in the world, or the dharma that you were given to fulfill, and that you agreed to.

      Warm regards,
      Gloria
