How You Experience Alignment According To Your Human Design

Updated: Apr 5

New to Human Design? Start here! In Human Design, there are 5 types of energy, each with a corresponding theme that is experienced when aligning to your highest expression. 𝙏𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙨 𝙘𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙙 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 “𝙨𝙞𝙜𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙚”...

But, before you dive into the depths of the words written below, I urge you to pause and contemplate this idea. For much of our life, we've learned language that helps us process, contextualize and organize our thoughts, perceptions, beliefs...our whole world really! An incredible complex and valuable process. But, what if these words were meant to move through our minds, and into our bodies? What if we were meant to feel the words - their sensations, their weight or colours, their overall energy. As you read about your signature, can you feel these sensations arise within you? At the bottom of this post are some questions to help support embodying your signature feeling. Happy learning!


Your signature of surprise is pure wonder and awe. Here you see possibility & feel delighted about what there is to experience. You know you’re in the right place for you & you’re able to take space, observe and experience depth.

When the reflector is honouring their energy and moving into their own alignment, they will experience their signature feeling of surprise - sometimes felt as delight. In this experience, the reflector can see the possibilities that lay ahead. Reflectors are naturally joyous and carefree humans who ebb and flow and when meeting their needs and feeling well in their environment they will express wonder, curiosity and awe. Reflectors can remind themselves that there is always something new to experience or see, which can help keep them open to exploring the depths they so deeply desire.


Your signature of success comes through being recognized for your wisdom & skills. You attract opportunities that allow you to guide others or processes by sharing what you see, while being supported yourself.

It takes a lot of patience and self-development to honour waiting for the right timing and people. When the projector does so, and feels they are being recognized for who they truly are, not just what they do, they will experience their signature feeling of success. It's worth noting that the word success for projectors is so much more than the language and significance society has placed on the word itself. It's more of a feeling. This feeling of success is different for each projector, but it usually comes into their body through having energetically well humans around them that they can trust, through being recognized for their wisdom they've acquired, by attracting and receiving invitations that are aligned, and when they are using their energy correctly to guide others in their journey or process.


Your signature of peace is both an inner and outer experience for you. In this space, things flow effortlessly and limitlessly through your streams of creation. You feel free to be your fullest self. You are carving your own path and creating an impact in a way that honours your energetic needs.

Manifestors are often naturally pulled towards their signature feeling of peace in their design. This is often experienced when they are informing others and clearing the resistance so they can do what they want to do and when. The more freedom a manifestor has, likely the more at peace they will feel. It's also imperative that manifestors initiate to have the impact they are here to have. In the moment, this will not always feel peaceful. But, once they feel into the impact of their energy they can feel a deep knowing and feeling of peace while they rest and wait for the next surge of energy ready to be initiated. If a manifestor does not have enough of a forward momentum of initiating, or if where they put their energy is not aligned, it can feel extremely chaotic in their body.


Your signature of satisfaction is a full body knowing & trust that you can attract what you desire, instead of chasing it. You are provided for, lit up by what you engage in and feel deeply satisfied by completing tasks & gaining mastery. A deep, relaxing exhale.

It takes trust to lean into the concept of divine timing, but the generator that can surrender to the flow of life will find less resistance and experience their signature feeling of satisfaction. Understanding that all of the steps along the path may not be clear, but at each step, there will be confirmation through the sacral gut response. It is crucial that generators feel into what lights them up, and follow the burning desires that their whole body feels YES about. There is nothing more satisfying to a generator than completing what they have responded to and feeling like they are using up all of their powerful energy each day before bed, towards things that they love. Gifted at the follow through, generator energy is highly sought after and very special, but it’s important to notice when others want access to the sacral energy held within. Just because the energy is accessible, does not mean it needs to be immediately used to take action or given away to others. Having clear boundaries and trusting the body to guide the decision making process can help the generator feel more satisfied.

Your signature is multifaceted, as with your energy. You desire both peace & satisfaction. Freedom to do what you want, and when ensuring you are making an impact every direction you go will have you feeling pure peace. Through trusting, using your energy in ways that feel good to you and letting your powerful energy attract what is most aligned, you’ll experience deep satisfaction.

It takes trust to lean into the concept of divine timing, but the manifesting generator that can surrender to the flow of life will find less resistance and experience their signature feeling of satisfaction (from the generator energy) and peace (from the manifestor energy). These feelings come to the manifesting generator when they are using their energy towards things they love, when they are moving their bodies and using up their energy and when they are informing others to clear resistance and allow them space to move at their own pace and have the impact they desire. Understanding that all of the steps along the path may not be clear, but at each step, there will be confirmation through the sacral gut response (and that sometimes there may be a step that needs to be revisited). Letting go of control and allowing their multi-passionate energy to move in various directions they are excited will help this energy align to their two signature feelings. Freedom & flexibility is key.

Now that you have learned about your signature, take some space and stillness to ask yourself or journal on these prompts:

  • Where do I feel this in my body?

  • Does it have a temperature? A colour? A weight?

  • What am I often doing when I feel my signature? Where am I? Who is there?

  • How often do I feel this feeling (never, not often, sometimes, frequently)?

  • What is one practice I can do for myself to cultivate more of this feeling?

Lastly, I encourage you to celebrate yourself every time you feel this signature theme in your life as it signifies living according to your Human Design & your highest expression. You deserve to feel your signature feeling. Every human does.
