Up next is the Sacral Centre – you will have this open if you are anything but a Generator. Generators are the only Type who has access to Sacral power.
If you have this open, you can get exhausted trying to keep up with us Generators! You don’t have the same battery power of consistent energy to keep working at the same level we do. You might find yourself feeling super tired and exhausted with keeping up with everyone.
So…how can we turn this into our superpowers?
First – what are the superpowers of the Sacral?
With this centre open, I would refer you back to your Type and Strategy to know how best to support others. Are you a Projector? Great! Remember, you’re here to advise us generators on what to do! (But only if we ask). If you’re a Manifestor you’re here to initiate & galvanize a new concept or action (but only once you’ve informed!) – but you guys aren’t really here to DO the work. That’s for Generators – we love to work!! If you’re a Projector, Manifestor or Reflector hire generators! Hire us to help you BUILD what you want to build. Don’t do it on your own – you’ll exhaust yourself trying to do all the things. You’re here to work as a specialist for short bursts at a time, and know when you’ve had enough of “sacral” energy – remember 70% of the population are Generators, with half of that being Manifesting Generators – they’re the super duper workhorses of our society. If you are trying to keep up with MG’s, you will find yourself feeling like you’re lazy and can’t keep up. You’re not, so don’t.
Turning it into your superpower takes the following steps:
First, slow things down in your life – if you’re not already doing so, start to either meditate or just take 5 Minute Silent Chambers throughout your day where you are not troubled by anything or anyone and you have a chance to allow the running thoughts to die down a bit.
Then you can start to become aware of where you might be in the unhealthy splenic state.
Things you might say to yourself:
I’m so lazy.
I’m so exhausted, why can’t I keep up – my energy is so low all the time.
Let’s keep working. We really need to get this done.
We need to say yes to that, otherwise we might miss out on something.
I can keep going. Let me just get a cup of coffee. •
We can do that, too. Not a problem. We’re not tired yet.
I don’t want to take a nap or lay down – there’s too much to do.
Let’s take care of that for them.
I have to do it myself.
Life is juicy – who wants to say no.
Boundaries? What boundaries?
Journal questions to ask yourself:
Do I know when enough is enough?
Do I stop when I need rest?
Do I honor the inconsistency of my energy?
Am I afraid to stop because I’ll look weak?
Journal on the above questions, and start to observe what comes up for you – is there something you really need to break off but aren’t sure how to? This is where having a support network would be critical for you. A good friend, coach, mentor or therapist. Someone who will not let you fall back into old patterns and who will keep you accountable would be best – learning that you’re not here to work like the rest of us might be a big shock for you since our society doesn’t understand it, so be sure you’re supported!
Once you start to notice all the areas this pattern is playing out in your life you can start to make positive change and let go of the things that no longer feel good to you so you can bring in the stuff that is healthy and in alignment.
Profit Potential – using this as a spidey sense in any kind of sales or marketing situation means that you can get a sense of whether or not the person you’re about to do business with is able to have the energy to carry things out, and you can help others to see when they’re about to burnout and how to use their energy properly (e.g. you can really help guide Generators to decide whether a project is good for them or not by asking them questions to activate their Sacral response).
One thing to note – you may have some of these patterns even if yours is “defined” (coloured in). It’s because you’re likely not following your strategy & authority so you exacerbate the fears within you (or fears of others). Whatever you learn about your design, always remember your strategy & authority.
