The "Shoulds" Voiced by Your Human Design Centers

Updated: Mar 8

I talk a lot about the "shoulds" and how powerful it is to simply start with the awareness of the voices within you. Each of your Centers is speaking to you throughout your day and sometimes they have adopted the conditioned voices of those who have raised you, teachers, society, or other outer authority figures.

And, yes, you can experience conditioning in BOTH your defined and undefined Centers!

Often the voice of our undefined Centers sounds like someone telling us we are "not enough" and should know, do, or be "more" in some way, while the voices of our defined Centers sound like someone warning us we are "too much" and we should "tone it down" to make others feel comfortable. Here are some examples you may experience based on your Design.

"Shoulds" of the Defined Centers

Undefined Head:

I should figure out the answer to this question.

Undefined Ajna:

I should have an opinion on this topic.

Undefined Throat:

I should say something to be seen in this conversation.

Undefined G-Center:

I should know who I am.

Undefined Heart Center:

I should be motivated to make this commitment.

Undefined Solar Plexus:

I should know how I feel.

Undefined Spleen:

I should stop because I am afraid of what may or may not happen.

Undefined Sacral:

I should have more energy.

Undefined Root:

I should get this done right now.
