Spleen Center

Spleen Center

Feb 27, 2022


The Spleen center represents instinct, intuition, fear and immune system.

It is also the oldest and most primal awareness center. Helping us to tune into our body consciousness to discern what is good for us and what isn’t. This is body consciousness awareness.



All awareness begins with a fear frequency. In the case of the Spleen, there are 7 primary fears. It is believed that Splenic fears can only be moved through taking action.



Approximately 55% of the population have a defined Spleen, a constant connection to what’s safe or not for them. Defining others with their sense of safety, security and even broadcasting their fears.

While an estimate of 45% of the population are undefined or completely open. Taking in and amplifying the instincts, fears and intuition of those with a defined Spleen center.


Defined Spleen Center

With a defined Spleen you have a consistent connection to your instincts, intuition and fear. You know what’s good for you and what’s not.

There is a difference between fear and intuition. Fear can feel emotionally charged (shame, guilt could be attached) and feels a but more contractive. While intuition feels more expansive, gentle and compassionate.

Explore your relationship between fear instincts and your intuition. How does each energy feel on their own?

The Undefined Spleen Center

With an undefined Spleen you take in and amplify the fears and intuition of people around you. Which could be a lot if you’re not aware of what you’re taking in!

It’s important you become really clear about what fears are yours and learning to release those that are not yours.

You have the capacity to develop incredible intuitive awareness over time, specially around people. There might be a false sense of security and even dependancy on those with a defined spleen.


The Not Self of this center is: “Holding on to what isn’t good for you”

If you have an undefined or open Spleen center you’re taking in and amplifying the fears and intuition of those around you.

You might notice you feel comfortable around certain people who are grounded in their defined Splenic energy, feeling a sense of security and safety. The problem that could arise is when you’re holding on to people, experiences that are no longer good for you because of the false sense of security you felt at the beginning. So notice, whenever you’re holding on to something even when it’s ‘run it’s course’



Gates in the Spleen Center

Whether you’re defined or undefined notice what gates you have activated in the Spleen center.

That’s the area where energy will be flowing and processing most often.

There are also fears associated with each gate. Noticing and naming the fears that arise can help you hold space for them.

Fears are not bad! They are data about how we’re doing, what might be underneath that fear and also a gateway to our intuitive selfs. Learning to recognize the voice of your fears and intuition will help you hear what they’re trying to tell you.

One more thing

Remember, the centers are a fraction of your design. You are a unique combination of so many other moving parts. Your type, 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.

Knowing what energies we broadcast and amplify gives us a better sense of awareness. It helps us build a better understanding of ourselves and others.

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

♥️ Do you have a defined, undefined or open Spleen center?

I have a defined Ego. A lesson I carry with me is that if I set my heart on something I’ll likely follow through, so it’s important I commit to things that are aligned otherwise burnout happens. This little but mighty Will center has often been misused by pushing myself further than my body can handle.
