Ego Authority Explained

What is “Authority” in Human Design?

  • In a nutshell, “authority” is the way we gain clarity to make decisions. When you are presented an opportunity or a choice in life – how do you know what the right decision is for you? How do you know if something is in alignment for you? Your Human Design Authority is how you achieve clarity to know the right path forward.
  • Authority is especially useful when you are making “BIG” decisions such as accepting a new job or relocating to a new city.
  • There are 7 different “authority types” in Human Design. Ego authority is one of them.

The Energy of this Authority

How it Works

  • The energetics of the Ego / Heart center is not a thoughtful or reflective process.
  • The Ego center is about motivation and willpower.
  • The Ego center is about motivation and has more space to talk. It is a loud voice that says “Do I selfishly want this thing or not?” or Will this help me feel like I am more in my power even if I can’t explain why?”
    • It is important to note that the word “selfish” in the context of the ego energy center should not be viewed in the negative sense of the word. The things you “selfishly” want are the “heart pull” that tells you when something is energetically correct for you.

Practical Tips

  • Pay attention and understand how this Authority speaks to you
  • With this authority, it is important for you to just start talking about what you want to do and then pay attention to the things you SAY you want to do. Doing this will help you bypass the Mind (Ajna) Center, which wants to analyze, rationalize, and problem-solve. The idea is to hear, through your own voice, what you “selfishly” want, and then take action based on the energetic response of the Ego / Heart Center.
  • An energetic “yes” that feels like your heart is being drawn to the “thing” in question (i.e. you ‘selfishly’ want it).
  • An energetic “no” feels like you are being pulled away from the “thing” in question (i.e. you ‘selfishly’ do NOT want it.)
