Turn on Your Inner Knowing

The following sayings were probably created by Generator/ Manifesting Generator Human Design types!


human design“Never discredit your gut instinct. You’re not being paranoid. Your body can pick up vibrations, some better than others, and if something deep inside you says something’s not right about a person or situation, trust it and keep it pushing.”- Anonymous

“Always trust your gut feelings, as they never lie the way people do.”    -Anonymous

“Pay attention to your gut feelings, No matter how good something looks if it doesn’t feel right … walk away.” -Anonymous


About 70% of people in the world have a defined Sacral center and are known as Generator or Manifesting Generator in the language of Human Design.


The Defined Sacral Center is capable of sustainable life force energy, that helps us get up each day and work, day in day out. The sacral center is also about providing resources, education, values and nurturing for family and community.

The strategy of a Generator and Manifesting Generator is to “Wait to respond”. This means that when an inspiration, Human Design, Sacral Centeropportunity, idea or possibility presents, the Generator types need to wait to respond until a sign or confirmation shows up in their outer reality that it is right for you and that the timing is correct. Is there something that can help you respond? There is and it is deep within your gut!

One thing that makes the defined Sacral center special and useful is a deep inner knowing generators are capable of IF we get in touch with it! “Trust your Gut” is so true for these types, although not all Generators are connected or aware of this connection and the magic of its potential power for their life path.

The Open sacral center of the Projector, Manifestor and Reflectors types do not have the same access to this deep inner knowing. Their process is different.


What is this Inner Knowing?


It is like a compass that can help us navigate the right directions for life, coming deep from within and is not aligned with the mind/head. In order to get in touch with inner knowing generators need to get out of their head! We may fool ourselves that we “know” better, using our mind. I recall a saying my father used to repeat: “A mind is a great tool, but a bad master!”


Why Should Generators and Manifesting Generators get in touch with their Inner Knowing?


It helps with:

  • Making ‘right’ decisions
  • Responding to the ‘right’ opportunities
  • Choosing the ‘right’ partner
  • Getting in touch with ‘right’ timing


To give an example, I was debating between taking two or three classes related to Human Design. All were appealing to me, and I responded to each positively on some level. I was fortunate to have a sacral session with a colleague, and we asked about the classes that were best for me to take. My sacral said no to one of the programs I was really pulled towards, not to mention savings if I took the special offer for the class now! I was so surprised because I was all but signed up for the class! Afterward, although it was of significant interest, I also felt a deep relief since it was not the correct timing for me.


How can we get in touch with our inner knowing?


Human Design, Sacral Center, GeneratorThrough SOUND! Generators get in touch with their sacral knowing through sound. Most Generators will be able to do this through the sounds of “Un-huh” for yes, and “Un-un” for no. These guttural sounds are often made by children and we are taught early in life that they are rude sounds to make.

Learning to use these sounds again is a powerful way to access sacral knowing.

All Manifesting Generators will be able to access their sacral sounds, some with these guttural sounds, but some have such fast responses that their first response will be appropriate. It may be Yes/No, Yeah/No Way or whatever is uttered first!

It can take practice to begin to get the feel of this way of responding. Simple yes/no questions need to be asked. If someone is pausing, often you can see their head/mental responses coming into play. Then it is important to stop and get back to simple questions to re-engage the Sacral center.

Do you have a Generator or Manifesting Generator in your life? Would you like to help your child or significant other with a decision they are facing? Learning how to do these sessions can help them!


Would you like to experience a Sacral Session?


Learning to trust your inner knowing may come quickly or with practice. A Sacral Session is a fantastic way to learn about and experience the power of this type of session.
