Our Open Center Illnesses

“This is the potential in each of us that lies there that waits for expression.
Instead, what do we get? We get the disease of the open centers, we get theRa disease of conditioning, and we get all these human beings trying to live out what they’re not, trying to be secure, trying to save themselves, and fucked up in their minds.”

Ra Uru Hu

For many years I have been psychically attuned to energetics. At one point in my past, I conducted psychic healing treatments for people, seeing the energy centers, colors and causes of illnesses that were manifesting in the centers, impacting their health.

When Human Design came into my life, it made sense when I saw the interpretation of illnesses according to the Centers and the organs and glands associated with those Centers.

After so many years of this psychic awareness, it is evident that all disease does come from the dysfunction of how the mind controls the life and creates disturbances for the body, through the open Centers.

Below is a review of each open Center and the disease that manifests coming from that center. You may find it interesting and it may shed some light on what is happening with your body if you are feeling ill or fighting a sickness.

Through the observation and management, in awareness, you can turn the dysfunction around.
