Isolation, fear, divisiveness, the threat of global warming, a major pandemic…with all of these factors and more, many of us are struggling, even children.

People often ask me where to find anxiety in the Quantum Human Design chart.

Over the next few weeks, I want to explore with you how elements in your chart might be making your anxiety worse and how you can use the information in your chart to help you manage anxiety.

Please note, this is not in any way intended to replace professional help if you need extra support. We are simply going to explore possibilities in relation to the Human Design chart.

I’m going to keep these little notes about anxiety simple and easy to follow. You might want to have your chart handy each week to follow along. 

Before we begin, I want to emphasize one very important point.

The chart often explains the mechanics of what you’re experiencing in many areas of your life, but the Human Design chart doesn’t explain everything. Use it as a tool to help you go deeper into understanding the complexities and nuances of who you are.

What is Anxiety

To begin this series, let’s explore the definition of “anxiety”. According to the dictionary, anxiety is a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.

According to the American Psychological Association, anxiety is an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts and physical changes like increased blood pressure.

People with anxiety disorders usually have recurring intrusive thoughts or concerns. They may avoid certain situations out of worry. They may also have physical symptoms such as sweating, trembling, dizziness or a rapid heartbeat.

Quantum Human Design, Spleen and Root CenterAnxiety triggers adrenaline and cortisol production in the body, two hormones associated with stress and regulated by the Root Center and the Spleen Center in the Human Design chart.

The beauty of understanding the Root Center and the Spleen Center is that both of these Centers give us a “code” for managing stress and anxiety.

We’ll cover these “codes” in the next couple of weeks, but this week I want to start with a very simple thought. This thought is built on some core principles that you might have forgotten.

I’m going to list them here:

  1. You are highly intuitive
  2. You are designed to know your Truth
  3. You are designed to follow your Truth and what feels good, right and correct for you.
  4. You are designed to follow what brings you joy

Core PrinciplesYou’re not designed to suffer, endure situations that aren’t aligned with what’s good and right for you, blot out your intuitive response, deny yourself or tolerate a situation that feels wrong. And yet we do this on a daily basis.

We are conditioned to be nice and polite. We spend a lot of our time engineering a polite reason to bow out of situations that don’t feel right to us. If something feels “wrong” but we don’t know the reason why, we often ignore our intuition and forge forward because we’re not trained to trust ourselves.

If you have an Open Emotional Solar Plexus, an open Sacral Center, an Open G-Center or the Gate 19, you are sensitive by design. (This is not a totally inclusive list. If you FEEL sensitive, even if its not in your chart, then allow yourself to KNOW that you are sensitive.)

Your sensitivity might be telling you that you’re not living in a way that feels true and aligned for you.

Here’s the deal.

Most of us want the following (or some variation of this):

  • We want creative pauses that aren’t focused towards “DOING” something but simply focus on being in joy and contemplation. We want just a few minutes in the day to breathe and appreciate.
  • We want restoration and enough rest to heal burnout.
  • We want peace.
  • We want to be passionate about our lives and what we’re doing.
  • We want good, healthy food and to eat for nourishment. We want to divorce ourselves from the stigma of food and body image.
  • We want intimacy, true connection with our partners and to feel sexy and sexual in ways that embody intimacy and our own power.
  • We want to feel confident and deeply rooted in our bodies, to be able to speak our Truth and to be sovereign over our own lives.
  • We want to feel seen, heard and loved.
  • We want abundance, safety and fulfillment for our children, grandchildren and for all the children of the world.
  • We want justice for everyone.
  • We want support, community and connection – to find those places where we have things in common with each other instead of feeling divided and separate.
  • We want to be released from the pain and fear of the past so we can define for ourselves who we choose to be.
  • We want abundance and power so that we are no longer creating out of fear and so that we have enough to share.
  • We want to know our purpose and to live it out fully, without guilt apology or feeling like we have to put it off until we fulfill our social and societal obligations.
  • We want to feel inspired and hopeful about the events happening in the world.
  • We want to really live our love for our family and friends in a healthy, limitless way.
  • We want to fall deeply in love with ourselves.
  • We want to fully tap into our vitality and our full aliveness.
  • We want to express ourselves fully without guilt, shame or feeling like we need to form our words and the tone of our voices to make it pleasing for others.

These are all powerful and natural drives that are rooted in our need to experience the full spectrum of our self-love and self-worth.

Our Inner Voice Begging to Get OutSome of our anxiety is a result of us ignoring the constant internal signals that we are giving ourselves that we need to make a change. Our anxiety is the sound of our inner voice begging us to listen to our inner Truth.

Something feels “off” or “not right” and we’re afraid we can’t do what we need to do to align ourselves with something better.

Getting into alignment with your Human Design and your inner Authority, can help you fine tune some of the inner restlessness and anxiety that you may be feeling.

When is your anxiety triggered?

What message does it have for you?

What is it that you are really afraid of?

Are you ignoring the message?

In spite of what you may have been taught, life is not about enduring situations that are taking you away from your joy.

You are not designed to put off your joy until you retire. (Believe me, I have a lot of retired clients who are still not pursuing their joy!)

You are designed to boldly move forward towards your fulfillment. If you’re not, your anxiety might be a signal from your higher self that somethings a little “off” on your trajectory.

Again, this is a very simple exploration and not intended to downplay some of the other significant causes of anxiety. Please feel into these words with self-love, self-acceptance and be gentle with yourself.

We’ll explore more next week when we talk about the Gate 26 and Integrity.

Have a great week!
