There are 9 centers in the Bodygraph: Head, Ajna, Throat, G, Heart / Ego, Sacral, Root, Spleen and Solar plexus.
Centers are areas of special energetic significance in our body. As such, they represent certain types of energies as well as govern the functioning of their associated organs and functions in the body (for example G center is responsible for the liver and blood).
Our definition, everything that is colored in our chart, is Who We Are. The definition represents consistency. On the other hand, when the center is undefined, there is no consistency in experiencing its energy/attributes.
Undefined/open centers is where we go to school in life. If we don't follow our strategy and authority, the open centers are places where we get our deepest conditioning, creating great resistance and suffering. Yet when we honor the mechanics of our design, it is through the open centers that we get the greatest learning and wisdom.
When the center is open, it doesn't mean it's empty, or broken. Our mind can easily judge our characteristics as something “wrong” or “bad”. Each design is perfect, when it is honored in a person's life.
DESCRIPTION OF THE OPEN CENTERS
The following information is a simplified overview of the undefined centers (the white ones). Notice your mental chatter in regards to your specific open centers and how these centers influence your perception of life almost without you noticing it.
Head is the center of inspiration, thinking and mental pressure. Having it undefined means that most of your thoughts, questions as well as your inspiration come from outside. That's why you constantly think about things that don't matter (to you) and why your head is full of questions. Trying to answer them all creates a lot of mental pressure. You can learn to have questions without the need to answer them.
Ask yourself from time to time: Am I thinking about things that don't matter? Am I still trying to answer everybody else's questions?
Potential wisdom of the open Head: I know which questions are important for me to think about or not. I know who and what is inspiring for me and I am free of mental pressure.
Ajna is the center of research, thought processing and analysis. Having it undefined means that you have no consistency in the way that thoughts are accessed and processed. Your thought process is conditioned from the outside. Feeling uncertain about your capacity to communicate and express ideas, you compensate by pretending to be certain - the one who knows and hates to look foolish.
Ask yourself from time to time: Am I still trying to convince everyone that you're certain?
Potential wisdom of the open Ajna: I am OK with not being certain. Great flexibility and thus creativity of thought process.
Throat is the center of communication and manifestation (action). Having it undefined means that you have no consistency - and at the same time great flexibility - in expressing yourself. The need to attract attention by talking. Useful tip: don't be the first one to talk.
Ask yourself from time to time: Am I still trying to attract attention?
Potential wisdom of the open Throat: I don't have to ‘do' anything to attract attention. It happens when it is correct for me.
G is the center of identity, direction if life and love (center of the spiritual heart in the middle of the chest). You don't know who you are, where is your life is going (direction) and don't always get the love you need (not knowing who to love). You can trust that life will guide you by following your Strategy & Authority. Only be in a place that you like, be it your home, city, restaurant or office.
Ask yourself from time to time: Am I still looking for love, for yourself and your direction in life?
Potential wisdom of the open G: I no longer look for love, my life, direction and self ‘out there'. By living according to my design, love comes to me and I know the next step to take when the time is right.
EGO / HEART CENTER (this center has two names)
Ego is the center of ego and willpower, self worth/self-esteem and survival in the material world. Having it undefined means that there is no consistency in applying your will power. That leads to lower self-esteem and underestimating yourself. You try to overcompensate this by being competitive, in control and proving your worth to others and yourself. Don't make any promises.
Ask yourself from time to time: Do I still have something to prove? (i.e. are you smart enough, good enough, trustworthy, loyal, successful, sexy, etc.)
Potential wisdom of the open Ego: I have nothing to prove.
Sacral is the center of vitality, sexuality and persistence. Having it undefined means that you don't have a consistent access to vitality, you can easily exhaust yourself. Not knowing when enough is enough, you tend to overdo things (work, eating, anything). Remember, you are not here to work, but potentially to guide others in how to work, rather than actually doing it all yourself. Go to bed as soon as you are tired.
Ask yourself from time to time: Do I know when enough is enough?
Potential wisdom of the open Sacral: I know when enough is enough.
Root is the center of physical pressure (adrenalin), drive to do things and kundalini energy. Having it undefined means that you do things as fast as you can and work hard, in an effort to get rid of the pressure (that never goes away). You have the potential to be naturally still and allow the pressure to flow through you without acting upon it. Following your strategy brings you the correct pressure and protects you from the pressure that would harm you.
Ask yourself from time to time: Am I still in a hurry to be free (of the pressure)?
Potential wisdom of the open Root: I know what pressure is correct for me or not.
Spleen is the center of intuition, instinct, survival and well being. Having it undefined means that you are open to all kinds of fears and you hold onto things that are no longer good for you. You have a weaker immune system, which makes you sensitive to your body and potentially good at seeing the health of others. It's easy for you to get addicted to the “good” feeling others bring you. Spontaneity can easily create problems for you.
Ask yourself from time to time: Am I still holding onto what's not good for you? (i.e. relationships, jobs, places, things)
Potential wisdom of the open Spleen: I knowing what is healthy for me or not and I can let go of what doesn't serve me.
SOLAR PLEXUS CENTER
Solar Plexus is the center of emotions and moods. Having it undefined means that you are very sensitive to emotions, open to the emotions of others as you take them in and feel twice as strong. This leads to strategy of avoiding conflicts and unpleasant truths. Living a secret life. It is best to avoid all emotional decisions.
Ask yourself from time to time: Am I still avoiding confrontation and truth?
Potential wisdom of the open Solar Plexus: I can experience the full spectrum of emotions and survive.
