Self-expression & the throat center in your Human Design


Human Design is a system that helps individuals understand their unique energetic makeup and how they can best navigate the world. One key aspect of Human Design is the throat center, which is responsible for Communication, Self-expression, and Manifestations.

Are you expressing your true mission?

Are you letting the words flow and sharing what is in your heart?

Are you trusting that your message will find its way to the right people who need it?

The throat center in your Human Design chart is responsible for that. All the energy leads there ✨


This center hosts your Communication, Self-expression, and Manifestations.


Deconditioning & Calibrating your throat center has a direct response to your marketing AND positioning in the online (& offline) world.

✨If you experience the following things, it’s time to calibrate your throat center 👇🏼
Self-expression & the throat center

🔇 Wanting to say something, but holding it in

🔇 Thoughts like “What will others think when I say this?!”

🔇 Unsure about the words you want to use

🔇 Showing up on Instagram stories just for the sake of it

🔇 Apologising for something you said, just in case you offended someone

🔇 Feeling that silence is awkward


Try this: Undefined Throat center

If you have an undefined throat center, you may struggle with consistency and may feel pressure to perform at certain times or on certain days. Here are some tips for improving your communication style:

Let go of planned communication. Instead of focusing on content planning, try exploring spontaneous content creation and communication. Give yourself creative space in your calendar to come up with ideas naturally, without feeling pressure to perform.

Practice active listening. Sometimes, the best way to improve your communication skills is to listen more and talk less. Make an effort to really listen to what others are saying and respond authentically.

Gate 8 – The Gate of Contribution

Your words are powerful.

Make it a daily practice to write/speak about something you are excited about. This can be in a diary, voice notes, or directly to social media.

The more you practice sending out your powerful words, the easier it becomes.
