Stop Settling and Start Trusting (by Human Design aura type)

My Human Design content is always written through my heretical + alchemical lens. It may, or may not, align with traditional HD views. And, this post may contain affiliate links. If you make a purchase after clicking one of my affiliate links, I may make a commission. 

The people that recognize and invite me have deep values around making a contribution to the world by being authentic. (I know this because I have human design gate 8 in my Unconscious Jupiter.)

And we have been conditioned to believe that it is just our actions that contribute.

It is that very belief that drives us to settle in our lives. It turns us into people-pleasers that hustle for worthiness.

But, it isn’t just your actions that contribute. It is your frequency.

This means that…

If you are settling for less, you are contributing the frequency of settling.

If you are trusting yourself, you are contributing the frequency of trust.

And that is true no matter what actions look like on the outside.

If you are posting on Instagram because you think you have to “provide value”, you are contributing settling and inauthenticity.

If you are eating Cheetos and watching Netflix because you need to take care of your nervous system, you are contributing trust and authenticity.

Now, please, for the love of all things holy, do not use these words as a weapon against yourself.

You aren’t broken or doing your life wrong. You are a human being living under the weight of conditioning. And this awareness is what liberates you.

You cannot heal what you are not aware of.

So, all that said:

Here are some signposts of what settling might look like for each aura type and what to trust instead.

Generator

Stop settling for things you think you “should” or “have to” do.

Start trusting that what you love doing (while you are doing it) is enough.

Manifesting Generator

Stop settling for other people’s how-to methods and step-by-step formulas.

Start trusting that your unconventional way is the right way for you and can actually show them a thing or two.

Projector

Stop settling for mere attention or being overlooked.

Start trusting that the people you are here to guide will eat up your insight like candy.

Manifestor

Stop settling for the drudgery of seeing things through to the end.

Start trusting that your greatest impact comes from initiating and letting the rest go.

Reflector

Stop settling for environments, people, and lifestyles that you aren’t wildly in love with.

Start trusting that your well-being is the mirror and reflecting back love is the best medicine.

Take a few moments to consider where you can settle less and lean into trust more.

Where are you settling because you think your authenticity isn’t enough?

And what would trusting the true gifts of your aura look like?

What tiny step can you take today to settle less and lean into trust more?
