Inner authority is our body intelligence that enable us to make correct decisions. The mind doesn’t know what is correct for us, as it is deeply influenced by conditioning. Therefore, making decisions with our mind leads us to frustration, anger, bitterness and disappointment. It leads us away from our true self. Our mind is a perfect tool, but as an outer authority. It can help others, it can inspire them, but not for your decision making.
Threre are 7 types of Inner Authority:
Centers are energetic hubs inside the body graph that receive and transform the energy that circulates throughout our body. There are 9 centers and each one has different qualities and biological correlation
According to your design it can be defined (consistent flow of energy) or open. The open centers, predetermine and the not-self strategies of the mind in your decision making.
All the white areas of your chart, is your openness. These are areas where there is no continuous flow of energy and therefore they are not stable and reliable. These are the areas where you are vulnerable to environmental influences. These are the areas have conditioned the way you have learned to make decisions with your mind, and as a result to be taken you away from your true nature. When operating correctly, these are the areas that potentially you can be wise about.
Depending on which areas of your chart are defined there are 5 types of Definition
Profile is another basic component of Human Design. It adds further nuances to Design, diving deeper into what truly differentiates us. While you share certain characteristics with others, for example, those with the same Type and Authority, a different Profile takes you on very different paths. It can be seen as a costume we wear while learning to play specific roles. These roles enrich our experience of life, as we engage with and impact others through our particular part. Altogether there are 12 Profiles, with six primary roles representing basic themes in combination with each other.
There are 6 lines. Below I will give a brief description of each.
1st line – Investigator – person who studies and looks at things deeply, a strong foundation is needed to feel secure.
2nd line – Hermit – a natural talent, will need a lot of alone time, waits for the calling.
3rd line – Martyr – trial and error, finds out how things work by going through what doesn’t first, may have many relationships, jobs, etc. to find what works
4th line – Opportunist – influential, very communicative, network of friends, acquaintances and associates
5th line– Heretic – seductive and attractive energy that attract projections and expectations from others
6th line – Role Model – acts as 3rd line in the first 30 years, then authority for others, detached from life (between 30th and 50th year) to finally become a role model (after 50th year).
There are 12 profiles: 1/3, 1/4,2/4, 2/5, 3/5, 3/6,4/6, 4/1,5/1, 5/2, 6/2 and 6/3. The profile must be seen in relation to your type.
