Human Design Energy Type Aura

The aura or energy field that surrounds our physical body extends about 2 -3 feet around us and interacts with the outside world including the auras of our fellow humans.

There are 5 different energy types in Human Design and each energy types aura has a specific way it is designed to work. The 5 energy types are Generator, Manifesting Generator, Manifestor, Projector, and Reflectors. (For more information on each energy type see the related articles linked below)

In Human Design, the aura has a specific way it likes to work and comes into play in the following ways…

Self-acceptance and recognizing our natural talents and gifts

As we interact with others, our aura will pick up on the energetics of other people and vice versa. When we don’t know the difference between the two (the self and the other) – this can lead to conditioning and situations where we are putting unnecessary pressure on ourselves to be something we are not. Knowing our Human Design and leaning into our gifts and talents is a mechanism by which we can embrace our authentic selves and our understanding of others.

Communicating our desires to the universe

The soul is always clear on what it wants but the aura may communicate mixed messages based on the external conditioning we experienced as we were growing up. This can create confusion with the universe and when this happens, we may feel unsupported by the universe. The idea is to allow our aura to be clear so the universe can bring in all the things our soul desires. The more we lean into our strategy, talents, and gifts the more clear our aura will be.

Energy Type “Strategy”

In Human Design, each energy type has something called “Strategy”. Our strategy is how we attract the things we desire into our life. Everything we desire or are attracted to is not a coincidence. Our desires act as signposts telling us where to go on this material plane. Everything we want is available to us but it is in an energetic holding pattern.

When we live in a way that is in alignment with our strategy…

  • The universe will make our desires available to us.
  • We are able to sift through any external conditioning and clear our aura to reveal what our soul really wants.
  • We are in the fast lane to getting what we want. 

Energy Type – Not Self

Human design also shows us the qualities that we embody when we are NOT living our design. Knowing the signs to look for when we are not aligned with our energy type gives us an opportunity to course correct.

“Authority” or Inner Knowing

In Human Design, our Inner Knowing (aka Authority) shows us how to achieve clarity to make decisions. It is the intuitive voice within us that tells us when something is energetically correct for us to act on. Whether or not something is a “yes” or a “no”. When this voice speaks to us, we will feel it in our body, and isn’t coming from logic. It is the voice that says “hell yes, I want to do this thing but I can’t explain why!”

“Profile” or Personality

Personality or “Profile” in Human Design is defined by 2 numbers from a chart. There is not anything that we need to do with this information but when we understand this aspect of ourselves, we can remove any conditioning we may have had against it and live in the flow of it. These are also things we may want to celebrate and honor in ourselves.
