6th line Profile Needs solidtude

Do you have a 6th line in your Profile or
lots of 6th lines in your Human Design chart?

As you know from reading some of my posts, I’m 6.2 Sacral Generator, post Chiron Return.
The other day I was feeling the pressures of the speediness of my life experiences (work and home). I was doing my best to balance and stay awake in the present moment. As I was ending my work day, my housemate left to run some errands.  Within minutes of her departure I could feel my body relax. I notice that I was breathing more deeply. I notice my head felt clear, open and expanded. I tracked and noted this experience as self-awareness most definitely reflective of a 6.2 Profile. To be clear, my housemate and I get along. The spaciousness of our house is more than enough…

If you were to place the 6 lines of the IChing Hexagrams over the body, the 6th line is in the head or right above it and the 2nd line is body (sexual area). The 6th line can connect to other worlds and perhaps other unseen subtleties. They are psychic and  spiritual people. The 2nd line loves to be  naturally flowing, without any pressures and luxuriates in feeling relaxed.

Tracking my current experience of my housemate and how I felt being alone, reminded me the basic Human Design training for Children. Parents with 6th line beings is to  give your them their own room, if possible, or at the least give them extended time alone. (Safety first)
Stone on pond
Later that night, I speaking with another 6.2 Human Design friend, we were musing about the 6/2 process. She shared with me that her housemate had left earlier that day for a 4-Day holiday. She had a similar experience as I did upon their departure. She recalled feeling relaxed and expanded both physically and mentally.  It was very validated for us, especially since the conversation came up organically.
I wanted share our experiences here so you could share your comments and experiences; either for yourself, as a 6/2 Profile or others you know who are 6th Line beings.
Do you notice a need to have a lot space (alone time)?

    Oh, boy does this speak to me. As a 6-2 emotional manifestor I crave time alone and didn’t realize how much I need to be in my own home operating from my own natural flow or I get disconnected from what is important and meaningful to me. With such a powerful energy field I need contraction time away from people so I can just be.
    I love your posts specifically speaking to the 6th line beings, thank

    Hi Nattalee,
    Yes I see this in my life as a 6 – 2 Emotional Manifesting Generator. I need and value my alone time and this has increased more recently. It’s like taking a bath in my own energy! I am able to relax and breathe easier. I am in gratitude for your articles, especially pertaining to my Design.
    Sending Love!

      Thanks for sharing your wisdom. I love this “It’s like taking a bath in my own energy!”
      I learned that my feelings of struggle, resistance and worry were damaging. After I hit that wall a couple dozen times 🙂
      I too surrendered to my own nurturing. An important reminder to all 6/2 is the form/body is a 2. The 2nd line wants to RELAX. You can do that anywhere but a bath sounds like a great place to start.
      Love and light,

    I’m a 6.2 and this is ALL sooo true! I love being by myself, is like I could expand in the space of a whole house. Living with others require instead for me to have some *me time* and for them to really be *correct* in my experience.

      Thank you, Sabrina! It is wonderful to hear that you practice self-love and self-care. Knowing who you are and honoring that. Excellent!
      It is essential for 6/2 to set boundaries with others, especially asking for what you need in your living space.
      There were a couple of times in my life, over the last 10 years, where I had to house share with another who did not understand my need for solitude. I learned, again, how important my alone time is.
      All the best,

    Yes, for sure. As a 6.2 Sacral-Splenic Generator married to a 6.2 Emotional Manifestor, we live as hermits in the countryside. Every time there is someone else staying with us in the house, though we may love their company, we feel a great relief when the house is inhabited again only by us. It’s as if I can feel my consciousness field expanding indefinitely the moment they leave and I can feel myself coming back to myself in a simple and harmonious way. Thank you for this post.

      Thank you, Susannah. So great that you have that awareness and that your partner in 6/2 as well.

    Interesting! I am 6/2 emo manifestor, kitchens. What I don’t get is that is that apparently I am supposed to be out among the masses impacting them in a busy city enviroment being a manifestor AND a roll model, yet I am a hermit. Any advice on how to make this work?

    • Nattalee K Lillico 14th September 2017 at 10:22 am - Reply

      Thank you, Jambo. What I have found a for myself and others over the years, we have parts of ourselves/Design that contradict. This gives the mind something to “try to” figure out. The mind moves to “how: do I do that.
      Since Human Design is an experiment, personal to each, I recommend going back to the basics and the foundation of human design, which is strategy inner authority.
      It is the Aura, and your inner authority that holds your wisdom. You have to trust (not easy for 6th line) that you will connect with opportunities for all these different possible ways of expression fulfillment.
      As an Emo Manifestor, when you wait out for your clarity you will move towards the environment, the people, the situations that bring peace. If you were a generator you would be pulled towards people and environments that would be satisfying. The hermit wants to have time alone, and not be pressured. Those needs can be met just the same when you are in tune with your clarity.
      There is no way to plan out a strategy to answer “how” it unfolds with each day, each way of your solar plexus and with you informing others before you act. Make sense?
      Blessingslds with each day, each way of your solar plexus and with you informing others before you act. Make sense?

    I’ve just come across your site whilst rather desperately googling ‘sixth line’ (hd) and not expecting much to come up. Or rather, not much did come up til I found this gem of a site!
    Thank you so much, I’m 6/2 solar plex with all centres defined (single definition) ‘except’ head and ajna! Struggling with desperate need for space but overwhelmed by being ‘trapped’ in a city with little money, and picking up so much that I can’t get to ‘who I am’ and to hear my inner guidance in the energetic racket all around me.
    So good to hear others talk about need for self-care and for space. I needed this validation today, fearing that I’ll never get to a life that is right for me. and that caring for and loving my Self is somehow self-indulgent and immoral. So stuck! Is this stuckness and tendency to despair, also a potential feature of the 6.2?

      Dear 6/2,
      Congratulations on your progress and finding Human Design. Such a relief to know you are not crazy, you are just a 6th Being. Really, I think we’ve all been where you are at. Struggleing may be your way of life, if that is indicated in your chart?
      Here is my advice for you:
      1. get as much time alone each day that you can – nature has amazing healing qualities
      2. remind yourself many times a day what your Strategy and Inner Authority is, keep a journal for the times you follow it and the times you don’t. Forgive yourself and move on when you don’t.
      3. dig deep into your inner world by questioning yourself (in your heart of hearts) What do you have control over?
      What can you do today to make positive changes in your life?
      4. Avoid negative people as best you can
      5. Get support with other Human Design folks. see below 2 links to get you started.
      Love yourself – more

    Yes, I am a 6/2 sounding board projector. I have only my top two defined, everything else is open to conditioning. If I do not have alone time I can lose myself in others very easily. I need 5 hours at least of alone time to every hour spent with an energy type hahaha. If I don’t have alone time I get very crabby and start getting snappy with people…

      Thanks, Samantha for sharing. Excellent self-awareness and self-care! Yes, getting crappy is one of the signs that it is time for a break from people.
