At the heart of many cultures, religious faiths, and philosophical systems, you will find the concept of surrendering to some form of a “higher power.” It is said that you are led to enlightenment, heaven, or Unity by surrendering.
And while Human Design isn’t a religion (despite the deep fundamentalist behavior of some HD die-hards 🤣), there is an invitation to surrender to the “Magnetic Monopole” which resides in the G center.
The magnetic monopole is a magnetic force that only attracts. It enters the G center at the point of conception and is the guiding force in a person’s life. It is the “soul.”
And no matter your specific HD definition, the magnetic monopole is the source of “correctness” and it “speaks” through our authority.
Your Authority = the Voice of Your Soul
Sacral authority speaks through guttural sounds of uh-huh, uh-uh, and hmmm.
Emotional authority speaks through moments of clarity after the emotional wave.
Splenic authority speaks through the body’s instincts and NO.
Ego authority speaks through the desires of the “higher heart.”
Self-projected authority speaks through the tone of voice.
Mental authority speaks through the environment and bounces itself off of soundboards.
Lunar authority speaks through the cycles of the moon.
When we honor that voice, we create more ease, flow, and synchronicity in our lives because we are surrendering to our soul.
And that path isn’t for the faint of heart. Literally.
If you are more concerned with…
…other people’s opinions…
…making sure everyone likes you…
…playing by the rules…
…keeping up with the Jones’…
It will be nearly impossible to trust your inner authority…the voice of your soul.
Because here is the thing:
As you walk the path of surrender, your conditioned mind will absolutely try to talk you out of the things that are right for you.
Not maybe. Not sometimes. Not every now and then.
Especially in the beginning.
Your mind will tell you that it isn’t safe…
…you will die alone…
…you will end up in a van down by the river…
…you will be burned at the stake…
…you can’t handle it.
But that voice is WRONG.
You can handle it.
Your soul will not steer you wrong.
And oftentimes, the shit (relationships, jobs, beliefs, locations, etc.) that you are holding onto HAVE TO GO before you have room for the incredible things that are awaiting you when you deeply TRUST your soul.
If all your time, energy, and resources are going towards things aligned with your lowest potential, you have nothing left for the things aligned with your highest potential.
It really is that simple.
You just have to get out of your own way and be willing to confront the part of you that is terrified of losing everything. You have to show your brain and nervous system that you can do it. You have to keep putting one foot in front of the other even when you have no idea where you are headed.
You can’t have a quantum leap without a leap.
