What it Means to Follow Your Strategy and Authority

Strategy and Authority - steering your boat through the Universe

Hello Cosmic Revolutionary,

I was recently imprisoned at a very nice resort in Boca Raton, Florida.

I say imprisoned because I’m basically a feral human. I’m an outdoor person. I’m most comfortable in jeans. My favorite kind of networking event would be a group hike followed by a campfire circle under a starry sky filled with deep, meaningful conversations.

Staying in a resort spa hotel with lots of people who are all dressed up, eating tiny little plates of food, and having people open doors for me just makes me uncomfortable.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m actually pretty conditioned by the resort lifestyle. I grew up in a fairly affluent family. This isn’t about money mindset or anything like that. I just don’t like the fancy life.

And I can open my own doors – which I prefer because, frankly, as a Time Bender (Manifesting Generator), I move through doorways faster than most people. I hate plastering a fake thankful smile on my face while someone dramatically sweeps the door open for me.

My Mother was very poor growing up.

She really, really, really likes the high-end lifestyle. She raised us to set the bar high on our expectations for wealth and success. It took me a lot of years to realize my own definition of wealth and success.

To me, success is living in my 1900 square foot farmhouse in rural Wisconsin.

I don’t give a hooey about cars. I’m more worried about whether there is dog hair on the seat versus how fast a car goes and how much burled oak is integrated into the high-tech dashboard. I LOVE cooking (and growing) my own food.

I have the freedom to be “off” from work every day at 3:30 to spend my afternoons with my teenage daughter after school. I take half a day off on Fridays to hangout with my grandsons. I can travel and see my family pretty much anytime I want to. THAT, to me, is true WEALTH.

Part of learning what defines success for me was de-conditioning all the expectations I was conditioned by around wealth and success. It took a lot of courage and faith to define success on my own terms and to go against what the world told me success “should” look like.

A big part of the journey to de-condition your own definitions about what’s good and right for you is tuning into how your body feels when things are right for you – and when they’re not.

The purpose of your Human Design is not to lock you into a box and tell you WHAT you are.

Human Design is NOT a labeling system. Your Human Design Strategy and Authority is a prescription to help you remember how it FEELS in your body when something is “right” for you – or not.

Following your Strategy and Authority at the beginning of your Human Design experiment helps you remember your OWN definitions of what you love and what’s right for you.

This week I’d like to review your Authority with you.

Authority influences what you need and, in some cases, the timing to use your strategy effectively to help you make decisions. Depending on which software you use to generate your Human Design chart, there are many different ways to talk about Authority.

All Generator Types have Sacral Authority, called Evolutionary Authority in Quantum Human Design.

Evolutionary Authority

When you have Sacral Authority it means that your “gut” response in the moment is letting you know whether something is right for you or not. The biggest challenge with Evolutionary Authority is learning to trust your instinctual response.

Quantum Definition: The gut-level pulse of Evolutionary Authority informs the Alchemists and the Time Benders about what needs to be done to further the Divine Imperative and the evolution of the world.

In the name of keeping it simple, there are four other basic kinds of Authority; Orchestrated Authority (Self Authority), Creative Authority (Emotional Authority), Actualizing Authority (Splenic Authority), and Resource Authority (Ego Authority).

Different Human Design software programs will list other kinds of authority but these variations are simply sub-categories of the three basic kinds of Authority.

Actualizing Authority

Actualizing Authority

Actualizing Authority means that you are designed to know, in the moment, what feels right to you (or not). Having Actualizing Authority means that you can be spontaneous with your decisions. You don’t need time to contemplate or “sit with” decisions. You will know what is true for you immediately.

Much like Evolutionary Authority, Actualizing Authority is a “gut” level sense of what feels right or aligned. For those of you who are not EvolutionaryTypes, Actualizing Authority can help you make smaller decisions about your daily life choices.

For example, if you have Actualizing Authority and you are at the health food store searching for a vitamin supplement, your Self-Actualization Center might give you a “sense” of which vitamin is right for you.

Often we master Actualizing Authority in hindsight. Actualizing Authority is that feeling of “knowing” something is right or wrong and realizing, upon reflection, realizing you should have listened to yourself. With practice, you can begin to notice your Actualizing Authority in the moment, allowing the wisdom and awareness of your intuition to guide you and give you essential insights about what you need.

Quantum Definition: The instinctual awareness to know when it is time to expand resources, align with greater integrity, take actions to sustain or increase value or your own value, and to fully self-actualize your gifts, experiences, and talents.

Creative Authority

Creative Authority

If you have Creative Authority, you are not designed to be spontaneous. You need time to make decisions and learning how to wait for clarity is essential to help you not experience disappointment in your life’s choices.

Creative Authority can influence the way your Strategy for your Type works. Your Strategy for your Type is still essential, but if you have Creative Authority, it means you have to check in with your Strategy and “sense” how you feel over time.

When you have Creative Authority, you tend to have a lot of emotional energy. You are passionate and experience big feelings to various degrees depending on other aspects of your chart.

This internal emotional energy makes it essential that you take your time to make decisions. It’s easy to leap into things in the moment when they feel good only to wake up the next day doubting whether you made the right choice. Waiting for clarity helps avoid some of the regrets you may have experienced in your life.

With Creative Authority, your decision has to stay consistent over time. If you are all over the place with how you feel about your choice during the course of waiting for clarity, it’s probably not the right decision to make.

Here’s how this might look.

Let’s say you get invited to speak at an event sponsored by a group that you like but you’re not crazy about. You love speaking but you don’t necessarily enjoy this particular group. When you get the invitation, you’re so excited to land a speaking gig, that you immediately accept the invitation. The next morning when you wake up, you question your decision and you have a small anxiety stomach ache from worrying about whether you did the right thing.

Over the next couple of days, you try to talk yourself into believing that it was the right choice. You manage to stir up enthusiasm along the way but you can’t quite get your energy aligned with the opportunity. When you finally give the talk, several group members want to hire you, but they end up being clients you don’t really enjoy and you’re left continuing to feel obligated to do business in a way that doesn’t feel good to you.

If you had followed your Creative Authority, when you got invited to speak, you might have answered, “Thank you. This sounds like a lovely invitation. I need to check my calendar and get back to you. When do you need to know my response?”

Your answer would have bought you time to really check in with your feelings to see if this was the right choice for you and you would have been aligned with whatever felt correct.

The most important thing to remember with Creative Authority is that your decision has to stay consistent over time. If you feel a “yes” in response to an opportunity, that “yes” has to stay true over the course of a couple of days. If you’re all over the place with your feelings, it’s not the right decision for you.

Quantum Definition: The ability to consciously cultivate a baseline emotional frequency that allows you to sense through feeling the right timing and alignment for decisions and actions.

Orchestrated Authority 

Orchestrated Authority

Orchestrated Authority is kind of a catch-all phrase for a few different, less common Authorities. If you have a chart that says, Self-Projected Authority, No Authority, No Inner Authority, or Mental-Projected Authority, it simply means that you need to talk through your choices to get clarity.

You don’t need advice. You simply need a sounding board, a good friend, or someone you trust who can listen to you while you talk through your options. When you have this kind of Authority, it means that you are gifted at seeking the potential of all possibilities.

Talking through the potentials helps you gauge where the energy flows, the conditions field, and your own alignment with what needs to happen to fulfill the potential in your own life.

Orchestrated Authority is common for Orchestrator Types and for all Calibrators.

Quantum Definition: The ability to see the potential in all choices which requires externalization in order to clarify which potential is correct and aligned with action.

Resource Authority 

Resource Authority

Resource Authority means that you have a defined Resource Center and you don’t have Creative Authority.

Because the Resource Center is about having sustainable energy and resources (or not!), if you have Resource Authority, it means that you won’t decide to do something unless you have the energy or the resources. It also can signal whether a choice is aligned with integrity or not.

This can present a challenge sometimes because it means that you have to have healthy self-worth in order to be comfortable saying “no” to something if you don’t have the energy or the resources for it or if something about the decisions feels out of integrity. If you’re in a pattern of trying to prove your worth by pleasing others, you may find that you have to strengthen your sense of value before you can truly follow the Authority of your Resource Center.

Quantum Definition: The ability to know when a choice is in alignment with available resources, sustainability and integrity.

Take some time this week and really feel the wisdom and the response of your body to the world. Notice what feels good and right and what doesn’t. Let this experience be a start to helping you remember what YOUR definition of success and true wealth is…

I spent years rewriting and reviewing traditional Human Design to make it more accessible and easy to use as a powerful tool to help people fulfill their potential, activate higher states of well-being, and empower people to learn to use their Human Design to create the life they truly love.

I call this new variation of Human Design Quantum Human Design.

If you have a deep desire to make the world a better place, and you are building or expanding a coaching or healing business, and you want to help people create a life they love faster & easier than ever before. I invite you to explore more about Quantum Human Design (see below)
