Signs that your human design profile lines are blocked

There are six lines that make up the 12 profiles in Human Design.

Line 1: The Investigator

Line 2: The Hermit

Line 3: The Martyr

Line 4: The Opportunist

Line 5: The Heretic

Line 6: The Role Model

As with all energy in the chart, there is a full spectrum of energy to experience in your life and the “frequency” you are on shows us how well that energy is flowing.

If it isn’t flowing very well, you are most likely closer to the “low” end of the spectrum. When you are in the “low” frequency, we often call it being “blocked”. But there isn’t actually a barrier.

The energy is ready and waiting for you.

You simply need to intentionally get the energy moving again.

Here is how you can move the energy in the lines of your profile:

Line 1: The Investigator

If you have a first line in your profile, investigating things and building a foundation of knowledge ensures that you feel secure enough to share what you know with others.

However, in our hustle culture, you may have been conditioned to believe that doing is more important than learning (especially after a certain age). That conditioning can create a “block” in your first line energy.

To get that energy moving again, heal any stories you may have around being a nerd, book worm, or “too lazy” to take action. And reprioritize learning, studying, and understanding how things work; this study time is what makes you the expert on any topic you enjoy.

Line 2: The Hermit

If you have a second line in your profile, making space to be in your natural flow – without others getting in the way – ensures that you can hone your natural gifts and talents.

But, because the second line is in a projection field where others will often tell you what you “should do” with your natural talent, you may be so busy doing what you “should do” that you lose sight of what you want to do. This creates a “block” in your second line energy.

To get that energy moving again, heal any stories you may have around being selfish, aloof, or introverted. And reprioritize spending time alone with nothing on the agenda so that you can get in touch with what you want to do. Your “hermit time” will help you to know which projections are correct for sharing your gifts and which ones aren’t.

Line 3: The Martyr

If you have a third line in your profile, mistakes, failing, and doing it wrong are the stepping stones to innovation and success. Failure is the way.

But, if you’ve been conditioned to believe that failure and mistakes are a problem, your openness to fuck things up may be blocked.

To get that energy moving again, heal any stories you may have around being a fuck up, a failure, or stupid. Start practicing self-compassion and reprioritize doing things even when you don’t know what you are doing. This is truly how you will discover “how” to do anything and everything.

Line 4: The Opportunist

If you have a fourth line in your profile, your network and become known as a resource for the people you care about gives you unlimited opportunities for you to thrive.

But, if you’ve become attached to being a resource in a specific group or force yourself to “fit in”, this can create a “block” in your fourth line flow and bring your opportunities to a screeching halt.

To get the energy moving again, heal any stories around being weird, different, or that create codependency. Reprioritize genuine connection based on authenticity and building the foundation of knowledge that makes you a “no brainer” resource for others. This is how you will build your network and create endless opportunities.

Line 5: The Heretic

If you have a fifth line in your profile, you are here to share your heretical perspectives, teach people why the conventional ways aren’t working, and then offer practical solutions that do work.

But, because the fifth line is projected upon with expectations to save the day, you may be so busy trying to meet people’s impossible expectations that you lose sight of the solutions you can actually deliver. This busyness will create a block in your fifth line energy.

To get that energy moving again, heal any stories you may have around being the villain, the problem, or the disappointment. And reconnect with what you know to be true, be clear about the problems you can solve, and which ones you can’t. Most importantly, let others be disappointed when you say no to their expectations. This is how you show others to be their own hero.

Line 6: The Role Model

If you have a sixth line in your profile, your life will unfold in three distinct phases that culminate in you being a role model of radical integrity.

But, your inner resistance to letting that process unfold naturally can creates “blocks” at each point along your path.

If you haven’t gone through your first Saturn Return, be open to making all the mistakes and trust your inner sense that something greater is coming for you. There is no need to rush.

If you have gone through your Saturn Return but not your Chiron Return, let go of any resistance to taking a step back from the busyness of life and go on the roof to get a higher perspective on the mistakes from your earlier years. Pay extra attention to any places where you are holding shame and heal it.

If you have gone through your Chiron Return, now is your time. Don’t let any stories of being a late bloomer get in your way and forget the idea that you need to be able to teach people “the how”. Your wisdom radiates through your embodiment no through deliberate teaching. That is how you unlock your role model.

Here’s to your healing and flow.
