Spleen Energy Center

Theme of the Spleen Energy Center

  • Survival, instincts, and fears

Understanding the Energetics of the Spleen Energy Center

  • The Spleen Energy center is all about survival and it cares about helping us stay alive.
  • In Human Design, our instincts live in the spleen and not the gut which is excited by and associated with desire / creativity.
  • Fears that live inside the spleen are basic for survival.
    • Fear is the low expression of any line in the bottom. Every gate – if used the wrong way turns into a fear. If you have fear, you haven’t developed your intuition enough.

Biological Association

  • Immunity and lymphatic system

Defined Spleen Energy Center

  • This individual has a strong, reliable instinct voice. They have their own sense of fears and anxieties so it is important to work on basic fears. May not pick up on when other people are fearful. If conditioned not to listen to instinct – the need to start to listening to it.

Undefined (open) Spleen Energy Center

  • Anxiety is not a helpful driver for this individual.
  • Since they can easily pick up on the fears and anxieties of others this person really needs to be careful to not value themselves more when they are feeling anxious or afraid.
  • When experiencing anxiety or fear, this person should stop and think about what they are doing at that moment. They should be careful to not amplify or encourage the fear and anxiety they are experiencing.

Not Self Theme

  • Holding on to what isn’t good for you
