Generators Need To Be Asked

I’ve been doing readings as a certified analyst for several years now.  Many times I will check in or hear from my clients a few months after their initial Foundation Reading.  One thing I hear from some Generators is that they are still feeling frustrated about many things.  There is still a stuck energy with work, with relationships, with how to move forward in life.  So where is the resistance happening in their experiment? After some inquiry, I am seeing a few of the missing links. 

Generators need to be asked.  You cannot ask yourself questions with your own mind.  There are no shortcuts to bypassing the mind.  The Sacral Center operates through response, not through initiating!  You cannot go on quietly trying to push forward, making daily decisions that you have not run past your Sacral Center.  So what steps can you take today to make these changes and start living out your Strategy?

 1)   Have allies.  Generators need their people around them who understand the experiment and the value of being asked.  An ally is probably not someone enmeshed in the outcome of your answer, but someone who can be neutral and non-moralistic towards whatever comes out of your mouth.  Really, they do not even need to know about Human Design, but if they can recognize the value of being an ally who evokes a correct decision making process, then they can be correct for you.

2)   Teach the people in your life to honor you as a Generator and ask you questions or give you options.  It sounds so simple, right?  It could be something like, “Hey (friend or loved one), I realize that I really get in touch with my truth when I can hear my response from being asked a question.  Can you ask me more questions?  Can you rephrase that as a question so I can hear what comes out?”  Something, anything like that, but it has to start with you being asked.  The age of being told what to do is over. The next time someone tells you what to do or demands an answer out of the blue, that is another opportunity to educate them that you need to be respected as a Generator, in your own words, of course.

3)   Respond to your responses.  When we are asked, we have a chance to hear our Sacral Response, but not all responses work that way. Sometimes it is not always 100% clear what is an authentic Sacral Response and what is a response from the mind.  Sometimes in life, we do just have to take a step in some direction.  What if you think it was an authentic response, but as you take action, you meet resistance and things feel off or do not flow?  Respond to your response! Change your course and take it as a learning experience to get to know and recognize the subtleties of the Response mechanism.  It is an experiment after all.  I love the idea of “responding to my responses” because it doesn’t leave me frozen in my tracks, but creates some movement and awareness to check out what happens and how I enter into any situation.  Since “response” is happening all the time and we aren’t always asked, this is a more subtle recognition where we can develop awareness.
