This is a short and sweet one on the power of our defined throat. There’s a lot of misinformation about Manifestors, and my hope is that this article will help you understand your defined throat and how it helps you do what you’re here to do, as well as some of the fears and conditioning we experience as Manifestors that relate to our throat.
The square energy centre, third down from the top is your throat centre. When it is coloured in, that means the energy is defined.
In fact, it is uncommon to have an undefined throat. Folks who have an open or undefined throat are rare, only about 20% of the population, and tend to have a reflective voice which mirrors that of the collective, or what the collective needs to hear.
As Manifestors, we have a defined throat connected directly or indirectly by a full channel to one of our motor centres, which gives us a motorised, defined throat which is exclusive to Manifestors and our beloved Manifesting Generators.
Because all Manifestors are undefined in their sacral centre, this means our throat is connected to either a defined emotional centre, ego centre or root.
Our defined, motorised throat not only gives us consistent energy to speak, which is super handy when it comes to informing, but an energetically potent and magnetic voice.
Manifestors across the board tend to have a rhythmic nature to the way we speak, with a consistent cadence and energetic frequency. In other words, our voice demands attention.
The motor energy pushing behind our throat makes it magnetic and amplifies it out into the world. This means we don’t just have the physical capacity to speak all the time, even when we are exhausted, but having a motorised throat is like being on a loud-speaker. All the time.
In Human Design, manifestation is the expression of defined energy up and through the throat, and the throat is believed to be the place that helps us to manifest because it speaks things out into the world.
Of course, our defined throat is a magnificent gift and is INCREDIBLY powerful. But it can also be out of alignment.
When this happens, we call this being in shadow** which is another word for being out of alignment with your energy.
The way that shadow shows up in the throat is very unique, and we often see it in Manifestors because the power and higher volume of our voice triggers other people, leading us to either repressing our power or over-exaggerating it.
When you’re not in alignment, and you are consciously or unconsciously suppressing your voice, this energy gets stuck. Biomechanically, shadow can show up in the throat as asthma, chest infections, laryngitis, thyroid issues or tonsilitis, as well as issues in areas such as the lungs, chest throat, mouth, teeth, gums and tongue.
If you are experiencing any of these things, have a look at how you are using or not using your throat energy.
The shadow expression in our throat can be repressive, feeling like you’re too much and so you dim down your voice or silence yourself. On the other hand, it can also be expressed reactively as feeling like we’re not enough, not feeling heard, being forceful with the way we speak, talking over people interrupt or always trying to “win” the argument.
Both repressive and reactive expressions in the throat are indicators that this energy is not being used correctly. Here’s how to start coming into alignment with your defined, motorised throat.
Start by seeing where you are in shadow, and noticing the physical symptoms. Do you repress your voice and not speak up? What comes up when you express your opinion? How does it feel to speak out loud?
Making noise of any kind activates your throat. You can start to use your voice to speak out loud what you desire and inform other people, and the universe, of what you desire.
Any kind of vocal expression, including talking out loud, singing, humming, yelling, whatever it is, will help to activate your throat. Don’t worry about what the noise is, just make noise.
I know you’re reading this and rolling your eyes right about now because I harp on about it so much. But Mani, do us all a favour and just bloody inform would ya?
I know you hate it. I know it’s not natural for you. But its so helpful. Informing is opening the doorway between your aura and the universe, so just do it. Please. For all of us.

I hope you found this useful! I challenge you to one week of deconditioning your throat. Noticing where you’re in shadow, start informing and making noise everyday out of your throat.
**just a note on shadow vs conditioning: conditioning is what we experience in our undefined and open centres. Shadow is what occurs in defined centres, as these are not as open to conditioning but can still be expressed as a shadow quality.
This fully digital bundle provides you everything you need to move through your conditioning and arrive in a place of Manifestor alignment.
