6/2 Profile My Own Experience
Two weeks ago I went to a women’s circle nearby. The organizer of the ceremony asked me if I could take another woman who needed a ride with me, and I said yes. The woman came to my place, and it felt a bit weird that someone was entering my cave, my cozy house.
We discovered during the ride that she is also an Emotional Manifestor, with a 6/2 profile. We both had to laugh, and it felt very natural to ride together. Along the way, she wanted to know more about the 6/2 profile. As I shared about my experience, I realized how much I enjoy talking about this profile, and how much depth and beauty I discover within it.
2nd Line in the body – The Talent & The Call
The second line is natural at what it does. It is talented, and is the most spiritual line in the hexagram structure because it is here to be called, called out to express its hidden talent.The second line wants to hide, to not be seen, and to spend time at home and just be, doing its thing, until it hears the call. Then, from the shyest place, it can express its boldness, and then it will recognize its own talent, its own natural gifts.
Until the call, the second line is not aware of its own capacity, of how much it instinctively knows; that it has a natural gift without any need for studying or doing anything special. The question for the second line is: “What is my call?” It is not solely about the talent that people recognize from the outside and want us to perform.
What is the call that comes from Spirit? What is that “special something” that transcends me and that is connected to the mystical forces? The call that I cannot understand directly, I can only sense it deeply coming into knowing that I am called on a certain path; the path that will reveal itself to me. Very often in my life, I received different kinds of proposals. People would tell me, “You can be great in that…”,“ You can do that easily…” or “ Why don’t you do this, you’re so good at this…”
All proposals were somehow possible to me, I could see what they were talking about. I felt like, ”Yes, I can do this. I don’t know how or why it all feels so natural to me”. On some occasions, I did try to follow those outer recognitions, but they never fulfilled me. They were recognitions of my capacities, not the specific call that I was waiting for. I must admit that it was very tempting to surrender to outer propositions. To see myself doing this or that, or performing this kind of skill or another, with no particular effort. My mind liked the idea, but my body did not feel complete or fulfilled. Once again, it was not “The Call”, the higher call, it was too mundane and simple. I asked many questions of myself, “Why are you not following the opportunity?”, “What is missing for you?”
I did not know what was missing, I just knew that something else was waiting for me, and I must wait for it.
The 2 Line in the body – Selectivity
The second line is very picky about its surroundings.
It has a selective discernment mechanism within it that observes who will be permitted to enter its cave. Who will be the lucky one to take it out of its shyness? Who deserves its boldness? Who will connect to its sense of spirituality and mysticism, without seeking or asking for an explanation?
The second line is saying, “I’m in my cave and I’m doing my things. I am very happy here and connected to all the things that I need. I am supported by higher forces, and in simple presence. Please tell me what you need from me when you come. I need to see if I can trust you, and if it is worth my energy to stop my calm cozy routine at home.“
It might seem arrogant, but it’s not a choice. This is the mechanism of the second line. It will carefully discern its environment and activities, and it will not engage easily with anyone. It would rather stay home and be left alone, not needing to deal with the talent that might be pulled out unexpectedly.
In my life, I never understood why I’m not so easy going with people, why I’m not so interested in simple interactions, and why I cannot connect, or find interest with most people? I felt something was probably wrong with me. I felt extremely shy in social situations, and I barely knew how to behave. But, once a real connection was made, I was surprised to see myself blooming and opening up, expressing the boldness within.
Until I met Human Design, I could not figure out why I was so picky and selective, although the people approaching me were extremely kind and wanted to form a bond.
When I started to accept and surrender to this mechanics, I felt a huge relief. I could trust my aloofness and my solitude, knowing that when the time comes, I will be fully engaged in the human encounter. I do not force myself anymore to open up if the chemistry is not there for me. I let go of the need to explain or justify my behavior.
The 6 Line in the Personality – 3 Stages of Life
The sixth line has 3 episodes in its life.
The 6th line wears the costume of the 3rd line from the day of birth until around the age of 30. The 6th line will behave as a 3rd line, playing the mechanism of bonds made and broken in relationships, work, and movement in space. It will have its 30 years of trial and error. Not necessarily mistakes, but rather trying things out, eating whatever is there – some of it will fit, some of it you will be able to swallow, and some of it will be rejected.
At the end of those 30 years of trial and error, a person will have a long list of things that they have tried on and that simply don’t work. This is the wisdom of the third line episode. A person gathers experiences and wisdom about oneself by being completely engaged in the material plane and human interaction. The path is not always easy, in fact, it is mostly challenging.
I’m about to go on the roof, ending my 30 years of the 3 line personality. I must admit that it felt like hell within these 30 years. I felt completely unequipped going through all kinds of experiences, and it was completely overwhelming.
I was experiencing relationships that didn’t last, and trying all kinds of behaviors that left scars and wounds within my memory. I felt like I was constantly falling and rising again, and that nothing seemed to get better. It felt like I was building a sand palace, where the waves of the oceans constantly came to destroy it.
When I met Human Design and was told about the mechanism of the 6/2 profile and its first 30 years… There was no happier woman on Earth than me that day!!
I whispered to myself, “Thank God it’s about to be over!”
I knew it deep inside, that something was wrong there… that it was OK, it was supposed to be like this but it will not last forever.
I could start to embrace myself and all the things that I’ve gone through with compassion and understanding. My life did not appear so bad if you looked at it from the outside perspective. But, from the inside, I was experiencing an ongoing roller coaster. I came out of it full of bruises, bleeding and sweating, wondering when it will all stop?!
I feel that this is one of the most valuable pieces of knowledge for the 6th line beings to know (or for the people that have many 6th lines). The awareness that it is just temporary, and it’s here for a reason. So although it hurts too, just try to play around it and learn from it as much as you can.
6th line in the Personality – The Roof
The second episode of the 6 line is the roof. It is the time where the personality gets space to observe, a feeling of detachment from the mundane plane. It is the opportunity to objectively look at things, no longer looking to be engaged and to try things out, just seeking for simple observation. It is the time to lick wounds, it’s time to rest, time to invest in oneself and its own unique individual process.
The 6th line is searching for integrity, the ability to have a correlation between intentions, words, and actions, so they are all in line with each other.The 6th line is saying to the others: “Don’t tell me, don’t show me, don’t talk about it – just be it!”
And it’s not just telling it only to others, it is telling it mostly for itself. It is asking itself to be loyal to its own movement, not compromising, simply doing its way, not trying to prove or bring a new message out there, just to be authentic to its journey.
I have started to climb on the roof, and it will take me, I believe, 3 more years to fully embody the transition. I’m amazed how everyday I can see the change in the way I think, the way my personality behaves and how I express myself in the world. I no longer tolerate certain behaviors, both of myself and others. There is no curiosity about just bumping into people and trying things out, something that was very evident in my life before.
It’s like I got tired, and this tiredness brings focus, as I finally have a thread of line to follow, it’s not glamorous, it’s not shiny. It is simple.I feel protected being away, not so arrogant in any way, just looking for my own quiet place to follow my process.
The personality is no longer looking for outer simulations, it is just getting to a deep mode of observations, and I know it will become more and more present as time goes by.
6 Line in the Personality – Butterfly’s Time to Fly
At the age of 50 more or less, the third episode of that 6th line plays itself out. It is time for the butterfly to fly, it is represented in going back to the mundane perspective, more interaction with the world, more engagement, maybe even having the feeling of meeting the same experiences from the early first 30 years of its life.
It’s not a choice, it’s just the unfolding process of the 6th line. The 6th line is pushed to be part of the whole again, and to be among others. To share it’s wisdom, gained in the first 30 years of engagement, and in 20 years of observation.
The key note for the 6 line is “Role Model”
A role model of oneself, a role model of how a human can just be who they are, not perfect, just divine in its simplicity and its authenticity. Knowing that wisdom is gained through experience and through life process. Knowing that life is made out of layers and stages, the perfection lies in the imperfection, in the journey of each one.
I observe people that have come down from the roof. I enjoy hearing their stories. I enjoy feeling the frequency in their body, and I enjoy sensing the ease of simplicity that is displayed. I see how they bloom, and how they bring certain gifts to the world. I can see the marks on their faces, the marks of wisdom. They make me feel it is possible to be oneself, and that there is nothing to chase, that nothing is found elsewhere.
The 6/2 profile is one of my favorite profiles, I enjoy the combination between seeing and experiencing the shy mystical, gifted frequency in the body, childlike. And the wise old soul represented in the personality. Throughout the years I always felt special connections with the 6/2 profiles, like an unexplained understanding and immediate warmth that goes through my veins.
I’m looking forward to continuing to explore and see this profile playing out its role in the movie of my life.I’m ready to continue to see the nuances of its behavior, to continue being curious and to get the perspective over time on what it actually means for me and for others.
