Despite what you may have heard, your boundaries aren’t about what other people are doing; they are about what YOU are doing.

Boundaries ensure your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. They are “if this, then that” formulas for how YOU take care of YOURSELF inside of relationships.

For example, If you project some disintegrated bullshit onto me online (if you do this), I will block you (I will do that). 😉

Making other people responsible for your boundaries is a symptom of codependence. 😲

And it’s a sure-fire recipe for frustration, bitterness, anger, and disappointment.

Because, the truth is, we can’t control other people.

To live to your highest potential, you must be the one to take full responsibility for your boundaries.

And your Human Design chart is like a shortcut showing you where your boundaries are and what you need to be doing to honor them.

Here are some for each Human Design type.

When you are a Generator, you can honor your boundaries by…

  • Saying no when something doesn’t light you up.
  • Surround yourself with people who “just love to be in your energy.”
  • Leaving situations where you are treated like a workhorse or machine.

These boundaries will ensure that you are able to carry out your purpose to light up the world with vital life force energy.

When you are a Manifesting Generator, you can honor your boundaries by..

  • Everything on the Generator list
  • Informing others when you are about to make moves.
  • Not believing others when they tell you that you need to pick one thing to focus on.

These boundaries will ensure that you are able to carry out your purpose to light up the world with vital life force energy.

When you are a Projector, you can honor your boundaries by….

  • Only accepting invitations from people who eat up your wisdom and guidance like candy.
  • Saying no to opportunities where you are wanted for your ability to do something, rather than for what you can see.
  • Letting go of the pressure to always be on and giving yourself plenty of unplugged time.

These boundaries will ensure that you are able to carry out your purpose to hold the highest potential of energetic flow and guide others into that flow.

When you are a Manifestor, you can honor your boundaries by…

  • Finding environments that foster your creative urges and need for uninterrupted time.
  • Surround yourself with people who want you to have healthy boundaries.
  • Let others know what you are initiating and then go do it (without waiting for permission or approval).

These boundaries will ensure that you are able to carry out your purpose to magnetize the people who are ready to be initiated into new cycles of growth, transformation, and Creativity and repel people who are not.

When you are a Reflector, you can honor your boundaries by…

  • Finding an environment where you can spend plenty of time alone and really love who you are when you aren’t.
  • Not staying in relationships with people who do not ADORE your fluid nature.
  • Knowing your lunar cycles and crafting your plans around them.

These boundaries will ensure that you are able to carry out your purpose to be a revered and sacred mirror for your community.

What boundaries do you need to take responsibility for in your life?

p.s. If you are feeling a lot of frustration, anger, bitterness, or disappointment, your boundaries could use some attention.

In the Human Design Map, I spell out the most important ones for your type + strategy, authority, profile, and all four gates of your incarnation cross. And, teach you the “inner work” skills you’ll need to set them, even when other people don’t like it. Get started here.
