One thing I am becoming very aware of in practicing my Human Design is when my root center feels when it is on or off. Our root center is the anchoring force of the Human design system. The root center is the center for Divine Timing, or knowing when you have the energy to get the job done. Divine timing all the way. It can also be a pressure center when it is too full. It feels like it is pushing you like you are anxious + twitchy to get things done in order to let go and rest.
So the question to ask yourself: is it the right time for me to do _________? It’s a pressure center, so sometimes it can feel like someone is pushing you to get things done or make a decision. But what it is telling you is the timing in the grand scheme of things which is your life flow. It is divine, and when you Let go of the “I have to hurry” + the pushing, you can trust when the energy is there to support your choice of action to take you will feel it.
Sometimes after waiting for it to be the correct time, it will turn on, and BAM, you feel an inner push to get something done. Then you know it’s time to take that action you’ve been waiting on. This is your sign to move forward.
For me, when it’s a great idea, but not the correct time, I feel the need to move forward…kind of like when you have an electric scooter. You know when you want to go. Someone offered the opportunity to go, but you cannot get the damn thing to turn on. Then all of a sudden, “varooom”. You feel like you could go for days. And maybe you can. That’s the power of the root center.
This is a prime example of root telling you to wait…and when it’s the correct time to move forward.
I could have pushed myself to say something. Believe me, it took all I had to NOT say something, but human design has taught me to know when to wait.
Benefits of waiting? What shows up is graceful and feels effortless. It will blow your mind. Natural, like it’s meant.
But this is a practice. It will not happen overnight and stay that way every day unless you are doing your part to pay attention + listen.
It can feel magical even.
And you have access to this magic, you just gotta know in your body how it shows up for you so when it tells you to wait, you wait knowing there is something coming that’s even better than you can imagine.
