Recap on Manifestors

Recap on Manifestors

Dec 23, 2021

Hello friends! I’m back with more Deconstructing your Human Design Chart series! Phew that was a mouthful.

So far I’ve shared about the foundations of your chart like type, strategy, definition and authorities separately.

Thought I’ll do a little recap of each type as we start weaving everything together.

Here’s a highlight for Manifestors 🎇

As a Manifestor you have the energy to get things started. You move quick and have the capacity to transform your energy into action.

What makes you a Manifestor, is that you have one or more of three motors directly or indirectly connected to the throat, and no Sacral definition (otherwise you would be a Manifesting Generator instead).

Manifestors make up 9-10% of the population.

Every type is interconnected to each other and have a role to play. As a Manifestor you’re here to initiate. You’re the spark that lights up the fire. An innovator and trailblazer.

You move quick and have the capacity to transform your energy into action. A caveat here, just because you have the energy doesn’t mean everything can be started and/or at anytime. Discerning is a crucial step in our designs which is where strategy and authority comes to play.


In addition to having your throat defined, your authority is the energy that helps you discern and guide you. You might call it a gut feeling, intuition, inner knowing etc. This is what guides you on what, when or even how to initiate.

You’ll notice the saying “use your strategy and authority” in human design a lot. And that’s because it’s one of the first steps in connecting to your inner self and moving away from the mind to make decisions that come from within.

As a Manifestor your authority, your discernment tool, inner guidance on what, when or how to initiate. It’s either Emotional Solar Plexus, Splenic or Ego.

  • Emotional Solar Plexus (riding your emotional waves)
  • Splenic (what feels safe for me?)
  • Ego Heart Center (What do I desire?)



After making a decision through your authority, your strategy as a Manifestor is to inform. It’s the mechanic of how you can best move and transform your energy with the least amount of resistance.

You have an incredible power and can sometimes startle others when it’s turned on without warning.

By informing you’ll pave a path for your energy to flow through, so that the people around you can either support you or get out of your way. Remember, informing is not asking for permission! Look at it as a heads up.

  • What does informing look like for you?
  • Do you feel resistance to informing?


Emotional Not-Self & Signature

A big part of understanding our energetics is also noticing the ways we’ve dampened who we are in order to fit in and what we’ve taken on as coping mechanisms. The process of deconditioning is essentially rewiring yourself to be more you + letting go of what’s not.

Each type has emotional indicators that are like guideposts to check-in, an invitation to see if we’ve honoured your strategy and authority. These are known as the not-self and signature themes.

  • Emotional Not-self: Anger
    Emotional Signature: Peace


Further Exploration

Since you don’t have the Sacral center defined, you’ll notice that your energy comes in bursts.

That’s your ‘incubation/rest’ period. Think of your energy recharging before the next ‘energetic spark’ happens. What to do in between? Give yourself permission to rest. To do the things you enjoy and love.

Notice when you have an urge, that could be an indication of your energy ready to be released. Check-in with your authority and strategy. Is this coming from within or are you fulling the pressure to have to do something?

Give yourself plenty of time to unwind and release excessive energy you might’ve amplified throughout the day.

Any Manifestors here? Do you resonate with this? Would love to hear from you!


One more thing

Remember, your type is just a fraction of your design. You are a unique combination of so many other moving parts. Your definition, profile, channels, gate, conditioning etc. All this information is pretty high level but a good starting point to get you familiarize with the HD system.

You can be whoever you want to be. Human Design simply gives you a little insight on how your energies can support you and what tools can help you get there.
