The Generator at work

In the professional world, the human design Generator is also known as an implementer. About 36% of humanity are Generators. They have a defined sacral centre (and are therefore energy types) and have no connection between a motor centre and the throat centre. The Generator radiates realisation power, perseverance and determination.

Are you a Generator? I (Thomas) am a Generator. For me, the knowledge of my Human Design type was a game changer in my life. Many things in life suddenly made sense. I felt the greatest benefit at work because I didn’t feel I had arrived for a long time. And not in relation to a specific company, but in general. My type also showed me why this was the case in many other aspects. But now back to the Human Design Generator at work.

The importance of passion at work

As a Generator, you have energy reserves that are available to you for a long time. However, it is very important that you do a job that you really love. A job that activates your vitality and brings you joy. Without this deep appreciation of yourself, nothing in your professional life really makes sense. Even if you earn a lot of money and try to motivate yourself with it, you will never effectively bring your natural energy to the streets. I can guarantee that from my own experience.

Use your strong body as a Generator if you enjoy physical labour, or exercise every now and then after work if you have an office job. Your adrenaline needs to be released so that you can live a grounded life.

You love to be busy. Being busy can satisfy you without you having to think about the meaning of your work. At least in the short term. In the work process, you prefer to be in the flow and forget everything around you. You are more interested in the process than the goal. This works well for you if you don’t completely lose sight of the goal or if you have someone to remind you of it, e.g. a boss, mentor or sparring partner. Projectors (coordinators) are particularly good at working out with you whether you are (still) on the right path.

The sacral centre as a guide for the Generator

Listen sensitively to your abdominal voice (sacral centre). Is the fire of your sacral centre activated when you allow yourself to be asked or does it fail to ignite? Only invest energy when you really feel the energy available for the tasks. Avoid making decisions with your head. Your head does not provide you with the energy for your decisions, your body does.

Human Design Generator professions

One particular Human Design Generator profession is that of a craftsman. Your strong motor is generally predestined for physical labour. But this is just one example and should not be generalised. There are of course many other professions. Among them, of course, are office jobs in which you can experience job satisfaction as a Human Design Generator. To get a clear insight into a particular profession, you need more Human Design characteristics than just the Human Design types. A Human Design Career Reading will help you to find your personal Human Design Generator profession.

My opinion as a human design Generator about sacral life energy

Every human being is born with an innate life energy. In childhood, we like to waste a lot of energy, partly because we try out a lot with our bodies and the urge to play transforms this energy into joy and laughter. This is entirely positive and natural. In the course of life, this life energy is used up. Even the sacred energy of the energy types, such as the Generator in Human Design.

As a Generator, I sometimes ask myself whether I really have as much energy as the Human Design theory says. And in my own Human Design experiment, I have come to the conclusion that it mainly depends on lifestyle. Excessive stress, an unhealthy lifestyle, lack of sleep, drugs and bad sex use up this energy excessively and prematurely. Incidentally, this is also what the wise teachers from China say.

Sufficient sleep, meditation, correct breathing, stillness, a healthy lifestyle and loving sex, a healthy diet and a life in harmony with the forces of nature can stop the excessive consumption of life energy. For me personally, this doesn’t mean that as a Human Design Generator I live like a longevity fanatic, but I try to keep my life energy at a level that makes sense to me by consuming moderately in everything. So that I can live my Human Design type to the full.
