Got Feelings? A Closer Look at the Human Design Splenic Center


Centers Graph• Are you physically aware of your body?
• Do you feel good and healthy in your own skin?
• Do you trust your instincts and intuition?

Perhaps you’re someone who makes quick decisions. You love spontaneity. Or, maybe you’re the opposite, afraid to take risks, to change or make quick decisions, therefore you hold onto things longer than you should.

Whatever you feel, and how you answer these questions, has everything to do with your splenic awareness center, how it’s defined, undefined and how you’re imprinted with the individual gates of fear. Your splenic awareness center yields enormous insight into your survival, how you navigate your world and embrace and overcome your fears. You FEEL YOUR LIFE through the experience of your body!! Let’s explore how...

The spleen is the oldest of the awareness centers. It has the potential to guide your life through awareness in the “now.” Its function is health, well-being and survival through spontaneous response of intuition, instinct or taste. Its frequency, vibration and voice is a spontaneous response which comes only once. When you’re not attuned with your body, how you feel in your skin, and your instincts and intuitions, you miss the value of one of your greatest awareness tools; not only for surviving and navigating your world, but transforming your fears and creating the life you desire.

A defined spleen (colored in) has the potential for good health and a sense of well-being that is consistent and spontaneous. Well-being depends on being attuned to and paying attention to the signals of your body. Your gut feeling, intuition, instinct and taste will guide you, in making healthy choices and navigating your fears. When you feel healthy, everyone around you feels healthy.

Undefined spleens (open) have no consistent sense of that same “feel good.” Well-being is vulnerable to the vibrations of others. When people around you feel good, you hang on forever to their “feel good,” and their spontaneity. When others feel sick, bad or afraid, you take those feelings in and amplify them. When aware and attuned to your own feelings, you aren’t as vulnerable to the vibrations and fears of others. You are deeply wise about assessing energies and understanding how to transform these fears.
