Profile Summary Heart Centre

In the context of Human Design, the correct aspirations of the ego are willpower, adequate self-esteem, the ability to support "your people", the ability to keep promises and value your own contribution no less than the efforts of others. The Heart Center is responsible for all this. Based on its energy, human communities are born, each member of which cares about others.

Egoism is not only a personal property, but also a social one, and our Ego does not always say “I” - much more often than we think, it says “we”. The material plan, the specific goal is not only money, it is everything that can be touched, measured or achieved. For example: a joint vacation, winning a competition, gaining status or property, etc.

Defined Heart Center
A person with a defined Heart Center is characterized by purposefulness, willpower, endurance and stable self-esteem. He has a healthy egoism, knows how and with pleasure disposes of material resources. It is the ideal Motor for achieving ambitious goals that require a lot of effort but are limited in time. In order for the end result to bring joy and satisfaction, you should focus on your own desires and interests, and not on the opinions of others.
Undefined Heart Center
For the owners of an undefined Heart Center, the very thought that one must set some goals and achieve something is painful. Their desires can change every day, which can sometimes be uncomfortable, but still normal! The self-esteem of such people will be in order when they learn to live without promises to themselves and others and stop relying on their discipline and willpower, because they have this in a very limited amount.
An undefined Heart Center can cause constant competition, evidence, and the devaluation of people and things if its work is distorted. Therefore, such people, when choosing a direction of activity, should rely on personal feelings and allow themselves not to achieve what they no longer want. Indeed, in the end, happiness lies not in the number of conquered peaks, but in the joy of the process itself.
Open Heart Center
As a rule, it is difficult for those who have a completely open Heart Center to understand what is value in general and how to measure it. More often than not, they unconsciously find someone who controls them and tells them what matters and what doesn't. By the way, such interaction can be very useful, however, much more often it leads to the fact that this "assistant" in this way simply realizes his personal desires. The potential danger of an open Heart Center is that, if it works incorrectly, it can induce a person to not be himself, to be not himself.
Do not forget that the consequences and nature of the conditioning of your indefinite or open Centers by the people around you and planetary transits directly depend on the correctness of your living your Design!
