The Open G/Identity Center

Posted on: December 16, 2009 by: peter

The G or Identity center is the seat of the soul in Human Design. There is probably no more empathetic or vulnerable part of the design then when this center is open or undefined.  Someone who has the open G is influenced at birth forward by the identities of those around them. Early on they can be swayed, pressured and conditioned to be someone they are not. There openness, that white diamond at the center of the chart is like a portal. It can get clogged with their parents ideas of who they should be. It can be overly influenced to aspire to be just like an older sibling or maybe the opposite of what they represent. But the beauty of the open G is to be empathetic and recognize aspects of other individuality’s so what comes forth are the aspects that resonate on a deeper level.

The open G that finds their place and allows their soulful identity to shine through is a magical thing. To see that watch the video in  an earlier post, click here, where Sarah Maclachlan releases her soul through the window of the Open G in her song Angel.

But like a window the Identity of an Open G can become smudged. Because of this the person with an open G needs to take care to shield and even coddle their openness. Comfort is a big factor. The size, the design and the layout of the rooms they spend time in are very important to the open G. They need to be comfortable in their surroundings. An open G that walks into a house or restaurant that is not deigned to their comfort will want to leave. They know right away whether it is right or not. This is an energetic thing that only they can know for themselves. If you are with an open G then it is important for you to respect that openness and help them comfort the G.  Take the seat at the table that they shy away from, don’t force and open G to move into an apartment or house that they are having second thoughts about. If they are not comfortable there now they never will be.

This comfort that the open F seeks is also a barometer. When the open G finds its place of comfort then it is in the flow of humanity. Like the flow of the river, if they are comfortable then they will be in the right place, at the right time, to meet the right people and or have the right experience to move them forward on their path in life.
