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.

How do I know what my “Authority” is?

The Energy of this Authority

  • The energy of this authority is “If I want it to happen, I will make it happen”. 

How it Works

  • The Ego center is about motivation and will power.

  • This center 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?”

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. 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 want, and then take action based on the energetic response of the Ego / Heart Center. Your voice is what leads you and your heart/ego say “yes” or “no”.

  • An energetic “yes” that feels like your heart is being drawn to the “thing” in question.

  • An energetic “no” feels like you are being pulled away from the “thing” in question.
