Human Design: Understanding the Emotional Wave and Making Decisions with Emotional Authority

Human Design combines astrology, the I Ching, Hindu-Brahmin chakra system, quantum physics, and other ancient wisdom to provide a unique understanding of who you are and how you interact with the world — it provides a map to your energetic profile.

One of the key aspects of Human Design is the emotional authority, which provides insight into how you process, express emotions, and make aligned decisions.

In Human Design, there are nine centers in the body graph that correspond to different aspects of life, such as the mind, communication, ego, and will power. The emotional solar plexus is a center responsible for processing and expressing emotions. If your emotional center is defined, it means that emotions play a dominant role in your life, and you have emotional authority.

It is important to note that your emotional wave is more like a mechanism that happens through you rather than to you.

Making decisions with emotional authority can be challenging, as it seems like you are never 100% certain until you make the decision. However, by understanding and embracing your emotional wave, you can make decisions that are in alignment with your true self and bring you greater fulfillment and satisfaction.

Here are some tips for making decisions with emotional authority:

  1. Acknowledge your emotions: Recognize and accept your emotions as a valid part of your experience. By doing so, you can better understand your emotional wave and make decisions that are in alignment with your true feelings.

  2. Practice mindfulness: Mindfulness is the practice of being present in the moment and paying attention to your thoughts and feelings. By becoming more mindful, you can learn to recognize and respond to your emotions in a healthy and productive way.

  3. Take time to reflect: Before making a decision, take some time to reflect on your emotions and what they are trying to tell you. You are always trying to find clarity, so make sure you're giving yourself time to "feel it out". This can help you understand your emotional wave and make decisions that are in alignment with your true self.

  4. Seek a sounding board from trusted friends and family: Surround yourself with people who support and understand your emotional wave. Talk through how you're feeling with trusted friends and family members who can help you gain clarity on your decisions that are in alignment with your true self.

  5. Practice not committing: If you can, practice not committing to plans in the moment. You can say something like, "That sounds like it could be fun, can I get back to you in a few days?" Or, "Let me feel it out. When do you need to know by?" By asking for time you are able to ride your emotional wave and gain clarity on whether your sacral has every for it or not.

By embracing your emotional wave and making decisions that are in alignment with your true self, you can experience greater fulfillment and satisfaction in all aspects of your life. Human Design is a powerful tool for understanding and embracing your unique design, and by using these tips, you can make the most of your emotional authority.

50% of people have an emotional wave, so it's crucial that we understand how it operates. For those without an emotional wave, it will be important to provide the space and time needed so those that do can gain clarity on their decisions and not feel pressured to make a decision that might be out of alignment. By following these tips, you can make decisions that are in alignment with your true self and experience greater fulfillment and satisfaction.
