The 5 Inner Authorities
Decision-making… what a process, sometimes! How to be sure this is right or wrong for me? How many times haven’t you wavered between this and that, wanting so much the way would clearly be shown? Such a pain – a mental stress – that often we choose the first advise been given by a friend, just to get our mind released from that stressful indecisiveness.
Any human being is a highly evolved and complex energetic field, layered in multiple strata. Unfortunately, no one gave us the manual when we were born… Not our parents’ and forefathers’ fault, for they too did not get it! How can people fly jets without knowing all about their plane? Crashes are unevitable! Unless you get your flying licence; that is, you learn about your own vehicle and the ressources it already hosts.
Human Design tells you that you do not need any one to show you the way; your vehicle is fully equipped with the fine GPS to direct you properly, have you be at the right place at the right time. This fine GPS already inside of you is called “Inner Authority”. It is responsible to orientate your vehicle into the special and unique geometry according to the purpose Life selected for it.
Five Centers – energy hubs – inside your aura can pretend assuming the Inner Authority guiding your decision-making process. The prerequisite is that they have to be functional – defined and colored on your HD Chart. Once there is one – or more – of the Centers below activated, you are self-sufficient in your decision-making process. No one else than your Inner Authority knows best what is for you good or bad, true or false, healthy or unhealthy. Accepting to trust it is taking back your individual power to follow your unique path!
the emotional Authority: my feelings decide
The most powerful Inner Authority there is!… emotions, feelings, moods… very powerful and always changing, never reliable as they follow an up and down wave of hope and pain. There is no truth in the now for emotionally defined individuals: waiting for the morrow and letting the night pass by is so essential in their case, especially when they have to meet big decisions. Emotional Authority takes over all the other 4 when it is activated in your Design. It is never 100% clear, and can never fully satisfy your mind, as this later searches for the absolute certainty; most of the time, emotional clarity comes at the time the wave reaches its starting point again.
the sacral Authority: my guts decide
Your inner guidance comes from your sacral voice, these sensorial sensations of “mmm” and “nnn”. Your sacral intellignece always and doubtlessly knows what will feed it or not – hence the pleasant or unpleasant sensations inside your guts feelings. The sacral energy is at its best when it is given the chance to respond; the surest way to get it to respond is to have you being asked as precise questions as possible. Then feel inside the nature of response you get… mmm? or nnn? There is the direction for you to trust! There lies the way to your uniqueness! Paying attention to your sacral results in being at the right place and time, properly vehiculating yourself in the geometry of your life’s purpose.
the splenic Authority: my instinct decides
As a splenic being, you are instinctive; you feel what to do here and now. Instinct is an intelligence that is instanteneous and absolute. It tells you… but never repeats; don’t ask it again! What it says is right… for now; don’t follow it if you do not act right away. The proper use of your splenic Authority requires that you never wait after it delivered its guidance. Splenic people tend often to wait for the last minute to act, as their instinct cannot decide before action must take place. It is so hard for them to function correctly in a society that pressures these beings to decide way before the occurence… Are you splenic? tell people that your surest answer will come at the time the thing has to be done; before, your word could be retrieved
the will-power Authority: my motivation decides
With your Ego-Center defined, you are a will-powered being. Motivation is your driving motor, leading you to action when you feel its fuel, causing you to stay in bed when motiveless. Will-power is a highly appreciated energy in our societies: self-made men and women are praised and honored. So many try hard reaching this social goal and get burned-out in the process! Ego energy is tricky, as it appeals to forces like competition, selfishness, control, power, duality, becoming at all costs the first one… Listening to your body needs for balance between rest and activity is a must, since the Ego-Center deals with the organs of the heart, the stomac, the gall-bladder and the thymus gland controlling the T-cells in your body.
the identity Authority: my heart decides
It is out of your defined G-Center that comes the sense of “who I am”, “what is Love”, “what is my role, my place”. It connects you to the sense of well-being which can guide you in times of decision-making. In other words and in the absence of one of the other 4 Authorities, do what your heart feels well with. When your heart do not feel well with someone or something, it is telling you there is an energy around that doesn’t want you any good. Never decide out of a person’s advice that you do not feel well with! Instead, sit at a place where your heart is “at home”; then, launch your decision-making process. Pay good care to the sensations coming from your G-Center; the feelings out of it are not alike emotions. G-Center Love is all unconditional – nothing in common with solar plexus feelings and emotions like passion, rage, jealousy, anger etc.
