Human Design - The Problem with Emotional & Ego Authority



I have been asked what my opinion is regarding Emotional Authority and Ego Authority in Human Design. I have also been asked, “Hi China, I've been wondering what's your perspective on the topic of honoring the the emotional authority and going with the flow when it comes to e.g. only putting content out when it feels right vs. practicing consistency and doing sth we committed to even when we don't feel like it.

Thank you in advance. <3”


This is from the point of view of a splenic 5/1 Manifestor.

I am splenic authority. I will give you a little bit of a background on what each authority is sort of like. Splenic Authority makes decisions in the moment. Moment to moment. I call authority- I believe that it's the same thing as body wisdom, intuition, and womb wisdom. What I really love about human design is that the core of it is all about not making decisions with the mind. So, bypassing the mind. That's what meditation is all about. That's why I am a fan of Human Design. It's talking about bypassing the mind. Because the mind is very limited. The mind wants to categorize everything into little boxes. The mind is designed to keep you safe. Well, that doesn't allow you to enter into the realm of imagination and unlimited possibility. So the mind will only see A and B. But there's also more than just two options. There's always a third option. There's always a 100th option that the mind doesn't see because it can't perceive it. And this is where intuition comes in – the 6th sense. The mind wants to work with the 5 senses and label and categorize via the 5 senses. But the intuition is the 6th sense and this is where Human Design Authority comes in aka body wisdom.

So with the splenic authority - I feel in each moment in my body whether or not something is for me. That's how I make decisions. I don't make decisions with my mind. Because mulling it over in the mind isn't going to necessarily going to be helpful. And when a person mulls it over in their mind – goes back and forth – then all these fears come up. And they may try and convince themselves of all the reasons why they can't. All the reasons why it's too hard, it's to scary, they are going to fail. And then they just won't do it. And they will cock block themselves in that way.

This is actually a huge issue that I have with emotional authority and ego authority. Emotional Authority will use the excuse of, “Oh well, I need to be on my emotional wave. So I can't make this decision to change my life and uplevel my life right now.” And they will use that to honestly placate fear sometimes. I'm not saying that every emotional authority person does this, but I have seen quite a few do this.

Myself as a splenic manifestor – there's no waiting. I don't have that wait period where I need to wait. I know right away if something is for my uplevel, if something is beneficial for me and my growth – I am going to just move toward it right away. There is no room for fear. There is no allowing myself to indulge in fear and be entertained in fear to cause me to backpedal or say no or whatever.

Emotional Authority has said, “Well that spleen is too much and it's like a hurricane and a whirlwind.” Okay well, the thing about the spleen is – I would guess that it's difficult if you've got a splenic person who is misaligned and in the not self vs when you've got a splenic person who is aligned and in the self. When the splenic person is aligned and in the self and they come for you – they come for somebody to help uplevel them – it IS correct. The person should just say yes.

Now the same is true with a person who has got an ego authority that's in the not self. For the most part what I have seen – I haven't really met a lot of ego authority individuals that are really in the self and really aligned. I have met quite a few that are not in the self and are misaligned. Ego Authority – the main question is – what's in it for me? I have seen some ego authority people take that way too far. And I have seen some ego authority people take that not far enough. They are too timid with that and some people are too much with that – mulling everybody over with their need to control. Then again with the emotional authority it's the, “Oh, I have to wait. Let me go on my wave. I have to think about it.” And by that time – the opportunity has passed – the moment has gone.

The way that I make decisions as a splenic authority person is – it's literally like the guy in Human Design Hawaii explained in his video about splenic (fantastic video). He's a projector – I don't quite remember his name but I'd like to give him credit where credit is due. He mentioned it like a gong going off in his body. I have the same experience in my body as well. When something is for me I will feel tingly in my whole body. When something is REALLY for me, I feel like I am having a hot flash. My whole body lights up. And I mean from the bottom of my feet to the top of my head – and everything in between. That's when something is REALLY for me. Like, I need to do it – immediately without thinking about it. Without mulling it over. Without pondering it. I need to just do it. Forget about the how. Forget about the time, energy, money, resources – who cares about that. Do it anyway and figure it out as I go along. If it's kinda sorta for me then maybe I will feel a little tingle in my arms or a little tingle in my legs. I know how much something is for me by way of the tingle in my body. I know the degree to which it's for me. If it's not for me – if it's a no – I feel a couple of things. I feel flat – like nothing. When it's REALLY not for me – I feel nauseous. I feel sick. And that's when I know to run away – don't walk – run away.

Now because I have also gotten into massive alignment, I can really sense the alignment in the self or not self of others. And the percentage of where they are at with that. Some of the emotional authority – like I have said – have said that the spleen is too much. And absolutely – when the person is in the not self and they are coming at you with that splenic authority – that's when it's overwhelming because it feels pushy. But when a person who is in the self comes then the, “oh I feel pushed and I need time to decide,” is completely invalid.

And this is the issue that I have with the Human Design System as a whole. I really love Human Design. I think it's a fantastic tool. But what I really believe that it is – is training wheels. It's training wheels for the new, evolved, expanded, aligned human being. The human being who is aligned with source, god, allah, buddha – the I am that I am. Truly truly in alignment with God.

The issues that I have with Human Design – and I do have them – is that it's compartmentalization. Labeling. Categorizing things is not good. Because if you say, “Oh I am this way,” then your mind is going to believe that you are this way. And it's going to be difficult for you to be any other way. So if we label ourselves then we really put ourselves in to this box. And it becomes difficult to get out of that box. And that's the issue that I have with human design.

For example – if a person is told that they are emotional authority – then will use sometimes as an excuse that emotional wave. “Oh, I am going to take a while to decide. And everybody else has to be susceptible to my emotional wave. Everybody has to deal with it and go on it with me as I can't make up my mind. I am indecisive and using it as an excuse to be indecisive.” What's difficult for me – is that as a splenic manifestor 5/1 – my whole life purpose (my god purpose and core intent) is to help people get into alignment. So when I come to offer a person support with their alignment and they want to use that emotional authority or ego authority to push me away because underneath it all they are afraid. It has nothing to do with me. (p.s. I have actually had emotional and ego authority people come back and apologize to me for this later and tell me that they were afraid)

They will use the human design system as an excuse to not have to take action – to stay stuck in fear.

I heard another person – she is an emotional authority manifestor – and she said that she's really been distancing herself from the human design system. She says that every time she goes to follow her emotional authority that it doesn't serve her. She ends up missing out on opportunities. She takes all this time to decide. And it just makes her indecisive. She says that's not working for her either. She says she hasn't been following the system as deeply as she used to. I would tend to agree with her on that – in a way I would.

I was also asked the question from an emotional authority individual about creating content. And how do I feel – I was asked – in creating content do you just go with the flow and do it when it feels good? Or do you keep a schedule and stay consistent? First of all – there is a talk I had – a channeling with King Clauneck who is a spirit of astral wealth, astral bank vault, and an accountant for many other spirits. He had a lot to say about the new age movement. Which in large part I believe to be propaganda to throw people out of alignment – to misalign people.

He had something to say about that whole thing. There's the concept of 'yummy yucky'. Which is – if it feels yucky then you don't do it and you don't move toward it. And if it feels good you do it and you move toward it. Here's the thing with that – that only works if a person is already in alignment and in the self. If a person is in the not self then it doesn't matter. What they deem and feel to be 'yucky' could actually be something that they need – and vice versa. For example, what he was saying is that it might feel really great to do heroin everyday for a while – that may feel yummy. And then – in the long run – it's going to feel yucky. Things can feel great and then we overindulge and then they feel yucky. This is where discernment has to come in. And really – a person has to be aligned and in the self. Which means – aligned with God first. Because that whole 'yummy yucky' thing can come into play.

And, a lot of new agers use that as an excuse to not do the hard stuff. Because hard stuff doesn't always feel yummy. That can't be an excuse to not do the work – to not face the self and uplevel and do the work that's needed to be done.

So when a person asks me that question – I would say that it really depends on their own individual level of alignment – where you are at in alignment. And depending on the individuals' alignment – then they can take a look at that.

I believe that being consistent is important. It's a mixture of doing what's important and doing what feels good. Things are very transparent right now and people can feel when someone is putting out content just to put out content and to remain relevant and current. But when that content isn't really connected to their soul – it's just robotic, it's automatic - and it's not coming from a genuine place of experience and inspiration. And people want that deep authentic inspiration that's coming from that individuals' alignment. Because what people really want out of content is – they want content that's coming from an aligned person. They want aligned content that's coming from an aligned person.

I like to batch create content. I'm in an aligned state and I start batch creating. I found that being consistent with content is necessary. Think about it – those people that you love to follow and pay attention to on facebook, instagram, youtube – some of these people you check their pages every day for some content. They are breathing, speaking life into you. You check them on the daily for that dose of powerful truth. For that hit of energization. You go to their page and you're like, “Okay, I can fight another day. If you're going hard still – you're doing it – you're showing up then I can do it too. Because for a moment, I wasn't sure.” It's like – you go to their page and it's like – they got you. So, I believe in consistency. I also believe in following the authority.

Here is how I use my authority for content – in fact – my authority has been telling me that I need to be doing way more content. But I wanted to be in deep, intense alignment before coming out with more content. Like, work on myself alignment wise and then really just – bam (!) - hit it. So that people are getting the best of me. They are getting the best vibrationally, energetically. Because we impact others – we influence others with our content via entrainment. Brainwave Entrainment. You've heard about when a bunch of monks get together in a town and they meditate at once then the crime rate goes down – that's what we are talking about with entrainment. You can literally influence the vibration of people, paces, things around you by your frequency. The more you raise your frequency and you are grounded – really grounded – ground and then raise like a tree. The tree grounds its roots in first and then it begins to sprout leaves and branches and flowers and fruit. But the tree isn't going to branch fruit until the roots are so deep into the ground – which is what I have done. Over the past couple of months – so deep in ground. I actually spent a couple of weeks sleeping on the literal ground on a friends land to get my self super grounded. And then – get into alignment. And you will bear fruit. So I use my authority to tell me what kind of content to create. What is going to be a win win for all involved. What's going to be the most inspiring for them and also what's going to be the most lucrative for myself. Because this is my paid job. You are listening to my paid job right now.

I will use my authority - my spleen, my body wisdom, my intuition – to tell me the percentage of something. How aligned it actually is with my core God Intent – which is my God Purpose. And that's how I figure out what content to make and what content to leave alone. In a sea of – you can create anything – it can be very overwhelming. What do you create when you can create anything? Well, alignment is key.

What is so amazing – when you have 100% alignment of Being in God, 100% alignment of Action in God, 0% resistance to the vortex of ascension, 100% commitment to doing the work, 100% alignment with your Core God Intent and with God's Core Intent, 100% alignment with God's Intent – THEN you can do what feels GOOD.

And I am telling you right now – what is going to feel good to do is going to be some of the hard stuff. It's going to be to show up consistently with your content.

That's going to FEEL GOOD. But you will be doing content that feels good to you. It's authentic, real, spontaneous – ORGANIC!
