The mechanics speak loud and clear when you observe life through the Human Design lens. Suddenly, you understand why people are behaving the way they do and see the obvious patterns that are inherent in all human definition. Some things become so incredibly obvious.
For instance, there are certain channels that I can see in a person’s chemistry through their mannerisms in the way they talk and behave. One channel becomes evident in the person’s inability to stop talking. I call this the channel the “Channel of the Chatterbox”.
The Channel of the Chatterbox is the Channel of Charisma, 34/20, where “Thoughts become Deeds”. This is the place where the mouth utters each and every thought regardless of who is standing there. And if someone is standing there, there is more pressure than usual and the tendency is greater to speak every thought out loud. After all, this channel is connected from the Sacral to the Throat Center activating the voice. This also makes a person a Manifesting Generator, giving their chemistry a fast “zing” causing them to speak non-stop.
So, when I am visiting with certain friends who have this channel, I know that it is almost impossible for them to stop speaking their thoughts out loud when I am near them with my four motors. There is no pause or hesitation before speaking thoughts. It is a pure stream coming through.
One day I went to visit a friend to sit with them in their garden and enjoy the sunshine.
My friend had left for our quiet moment in the garden to go to the store. The front door remained unlocked. After several minutes a man walked through the door, found his way to the back garden and began to charm his way into my good graces. After all, he had just dropped in and walked through the door uninvited on this quiet, peaceful, sunny morning.
He told story after story as he danced in front of me, laughing, smiling, talking non-stop and keeping me entertained. My mind had to race to keep up with his stream of thoughts that poured like a jar of honey from heaven. He was hysterical.
Somehow, our conversation ventured into Human Design and he asked me:
“What do you think? What Type am I and how am I defined?”
I could tell that he had the Channel of the Chatterbox. My friend, the one who just left for the store, also has the Channel of the Chatterbox. It didn’t take long for me to identify and correlate the pattern.
My greatest concern was that soon, I would be surrounded by two “34/20” Chatterboxes. “This should get very interesting”, I thought to myself. “Would it become a chatterbox marathon when my friend returned from the store?”
My friend did return and the visitor became quiet like a dog with his tail between his legs. His thoughts came out in mumbles and he used all of his might to hold some of his thoughts back. It was very funny to watch.
Obviously, the chemistry of these two Chatterboxes was a tiny bit at odds with each other. It must be difficult for a Chatterbox to be in the company of another Chatterbox.
Open Ajna / Defined Ajna
Depending on whether the Ajna is defined or not determines the Chatterbox experience. The open Ajna will talk about things that really don’t matter and you can end up falling down a really bizarre rabbit hole. Often, one will wonder why they are listening to this person talk or wonder why this person thinks that you are interested in knowing what they are talking about and insisting that you listen.
The defined Ajna often has really great, interesting things to say but overload comes quickly with an open head and Ajna. There are the dangers of short-circuiting the brain, headaches in the forehead, a sudden drifting off, bizarre dual-reality viewing and so on. Certain chemistry and definition can only take so much input. After some time, the one who is listening just passes out. It is okay if the one who is listening falls asleep. The important thing is that this channel gets to release the pressure to speak.
And then there is the Chatterbox who craves attention. This is the Chatterbox who watches to be sure that you are paying attention. Even though they may mumble their thoughts out loud while they are moving about doing their thing, they are also conscious of whether or not you are listening to them, no matter how trivial or insignificant their words are. Speaking is their favorite thing to do and having an audience is a thrill.
It exhausts them after awhile too. When the pressure is so great that they cannot stop speaking. In such moments, they begin to exhaust their life-force batteries. Eventually, they will be in bed for an entire day recuperating. It is so natural for them to be turned “on”, active and busy doing something.
I try to keep a balance between the Chatterbox definition and me. It’s a delicate orchestration of sensitivities, loving authenticity and chemsitry management.
It’s good for them to know when it is too much, time to pause, take a breath and enjoy silence for a bit. Gently, remind them.
