GENERATORS + MGs: Discover/Create Your Right Work

written by Maggie Sale Ostara, PhD | December 2, 2021

Generators and Manifesting Generators: Discovering and creating your Right Work is especially important for you!

Doing so brings joy, satisfaction and fulfillment into your life in a way that nothing else really can. We spend so much of our precious time and energy “at work”, typically more than we do anything else.

This is vitally true for all of us, really. I mean who wants to spend their days doing work they hate or just makes them feel blah?

But for Generators and Manifesting Generators this is especially important because a key aspect of what we’re designed to do is develop MASTERY in our chosen line of work. We’re designed to work and to get really good at what we do.

Yet so many of us agree to participate in jobs that do little more than bring in money, and often not as much of that as we would like. Alternately some of us participate in jobs — or even our own businesses — that do bring in the kind of income we want and need, yet the delight and true sense of satisfaction and fulfillment are fleeting or lacking.

No wonder we’ve been seeing the Great Resignation of so many quitting their jobs in the wake of the pandemic and all of the soul searching it has brought us.

I have not worked for a company for more than a few months since I left my job as a professor 25 years ago. I’ve made my way with consulting and creating my own work during all of that time. I’ve created a lot of success according to our society’s standard of success, grossing over $1.5 million in my high-end business coaching business, and reaching the top tiers of the network marketing business I first joined when I left Columbia.

Sometimes I have felt immense joy, satisfaction and fulfillment. Yet until more recently those feelings have been relatively short lived. Looking back I realize now that what I focused on, and therefore what I created, was not most aligned with what matters most to me. Even in the case of my sizable coaching business, I was trying to fit myself into someone else’s mold of what I should do and even who I should be.

We are all taught to do this. It’s partially a survival strategy, right? Fit in to what seem to be the more powerful people say will bring you success. I did that as a professor, as a network marketer, and even as a business coach. I looked outside myself for guidance and followed what seemed to me to be the path to success.

Don’t get me wrong. I am immensely grateful for the mentoring I have received in my life. Especially while I was in graduate school I had mentors who supported and even championed me and what I wanted to do. I also learned a tremendous amount from the coach I had for five years who really taught me so much of what I know about building an online business. It was my choice to follow the guidance I was given; it was never someone else’s fault that in the end I felt unsatisfied.

I’m sharing this with you because so many of us follow a similar path of looking outside ourselves for answers and not honoring the guidance we can receive from within. Some of this is beneficial for sure, yet it needs to be balanced by dedicated practice to what our Inner Being, or our Soul, yearns for because that is the true source of joy, satisfaction and fulfillment.

In today’s video I provide a series of suggestions and questions for inquiry that propose ways you can get in touch with what’s true for you.

Then I share with how I understand aspects of my own Human Design chart in relation to my work in the world. I hope that this guidance will support you in your reflections on your own work in the world and how you can make it more joyful, satisfying and fulfilling.

Please remember that people are not formulas and you are not your Human Design chart. I do not provide you with ways to fit yourself into your Human Design!

Rather Human Design always, always, always will lead you back inside to what is true for you. This is incredibly radical and subversive. This is one of the reasons I love this system. It’s not yet another deterministic formula telling you who you are. Please do not use it in that way. If you do, you’ll be missing the point.

Instead working with your Human Design you can bring new awareness to how you’ve lived your life so far, and open possibilities that you may have closed down out of your conditioning.

But remember — YOU are the one in charge. And YOU are here to Take Command of your life from the inside out.

Unleash Thyself! Liberate yourself from what you have habitually felt you needed to fit into, and enjoy the profound release of energy that arises.

When you do this new realms of potential emerge that may have been there all along, yet you couldn’t see or feel it.

In our dynamic, complex and sometimes confusing world of today, I believe that it’s through this process of personal liberation that we will discover and also create the solutions to the issues we are facing individually and collectively. We need to change ourselves so that we can become the people, the visionary leaders, who will think, feel and act differently than how we have been conditioned to behave.

When we shift our consciousness in this way, we will create new forms, new ways of being, new relationships with each other and our Earth, that make obsolete the story of never-ending progress, of consumption and consumerism, that’s killing us and our planet.

As you unleash yourself from the conditioning that makes it okay for you to do anything less than your Right Work, you contribute to this shift in consciousness, for yourself and for all of us. Never under estimate the significance of this personal development work.

I hope you enjoy’s today video, and if you do, please “like” it, leave a comment about your biggest AHA or take away and subscribe to my channel. I love to hear how my work supports you and what’s meaningful for you. Responding also helps me YouTube know that people value what I provide and then they show it to more people. Thank you.


Your time and energy are so valuable. Precious really, far more than money. We need money to do the things we want and need to do. But it’s a tool, not the main event. Spend these valuable resources of time, attention, and energy in such a way that energy comes back to you multiplied over and over. That will make you truly wealthy as well as happy, satisfied and fulfilled.

May it be so. And so it is.
