What is Human Design?

There is certainly increasing fascination regarding this modality. As a trained and certified Human Design Consultant with the International Human Design School (and the BG5 Business Institute), I wanted to provide some introductory information, and explain a little about why I now incorporate this into my private practice .....

Simply, I believe it's the most comprehensive personal awareness tool that exists.

It is a synthesis of ancient and modern sciences - a combination of the Kabbalah Tree of Life, Astrology, quantum physics, the Hindu-Brahmin chakra system and the Chinese I-Ching – ancient modalities that have guided humans for millennia.

In essence, it offers a map of your unique genetic design and it becomes your own life navigation tool to reduce confusion, stress and resistance.

It also helps you understand how your body and mind are meant to run properly, offering you the easiest and most natural way to utilise your energy. These insights offer a completely new perspective about yourself and your interactions with others.

Why learn about your own human design?

•improved health and well-being,

•better quality relationships, and

•fulfilment in your personal and professional life.

Understanding your unique design is an incredible gift. It gives you permission to be you – we are all uniquely different and have different roles to play in life.

We are not meant to see things the same way, process information the same way or work the same way. This can guide you in the correct way for you to move through your life….

What is also interesting is that compassion and acceptance of others also become easier. Why? Well, as you begin to appreciate your individuality, you are more able to appreciate other’s individuality….and this leads to less stress and greater levels of happiness in every area of life.

Regular tools you may be familiar with (DISC, Myers-Briggs, the Birkman Personality Profiling tool) can’t grasp the totality of who you are – they can only point out the conscious or personality pieces and the extent to which you are living that healthily or not. Human Design considers not only your conscious characteristics - your personality, but your unconscious characteristics as well.

Think of it this way - have you ever thought to yourself: "Gee, I wonder why I said that or I wonder why I made that decision?” That’s your unconscious side working.

Human Design removes the mystery of why certain things in your life work the way they do, and why some things don’t work the way you think they should. That’s what makes it so much more powerful than any questionnaire-based system.

And just think – you may complete a personality profile on a day you are feeling glum / depressed / sad OR you may sit it on a day where you are beaming, without a care in the world, and thinking that the world is your oyster – I can guarantee the results will be different. It’s all dependent upon your frame of mind on the day/month or year.

In essence, the information provided by Human Design

•is precise and specific to each individual

•brings an entirely new perspective to your day-to-day interactions

•gives you objective information about who you are designed to be.

How often have you compared yourself to someone else? How often were you compared by a parent, teacher or peer?

Comparison creates an impression that it is not okay to be who you are. It’s time for that myth to be dispelled. It’s time to embrace your individuality. You are already perfect—there is nothing to 'fix'.

Want to dive deeper? Let's talk about the Aura Types & Strategy

Type is about your body, genetics and aura. It’s how you harmonise with the world around you and align with your true nature. Your Strategy & Authority help you operate most efficiently. The four different design types are:

Generators The 'Builders' of the planet represent about 70 percent of the population. Their Strategy is to engage with life by waiting for things to come to them so that they can respond. When they initiate rather than wait to respond, they usually end up feeling frustrated. Generators are the life-force of the planet and are designed to know themselves by observing what they respond to. Through responding they experience satisfaction in their life and work. Their work is their gift to the world.

Manifestors The 'Initiators' of the world comprise about 9 percent of the population. Their Strategy is to inform others of their decisions before they take action in order to eliminate resistance. When Manifestors can’t manifest in peace, they experience anger. Manifestors are designed to have a powerful impact and be initiating mechanisms for the other Types. Initiating is their gift to the world.

Projectors The 'Guides and Advisors' are approximately 20 percent of the population. Their Strategy for engaging with life is to wait for their specific qualities to be recognised and invited into things. It is through an invitation they experience recognition and success in their lives. If they initiate rather than wait, they experience resistance and rejection and can end up becoming bitter. The Projector's gift is to understand and be a guide for others.

Reflectors Society’s 'Discerners' represent approximately 1 percent of the population. Their Strategy is to wait through a full cycle of the Moon before making major decisions. Reflectors delight in life’s surprises. When they initiate and don’t use their Strategy, they end up disappointed with life. Reflectors are designed to be the judges of humanity, to reflect back the injustices humanity inflicts on itself. Their ability to clearly discern the 'this and that' of the world is their gift.

Last word: Curious—or even sceptical?

I get it. Sometimes there are concepts that just have to be taken on faith, and can’t be proven by anyone other than yourself. Take the examples of Newton, Einstein, Tesla, Edison—where did their genius come from, and how did they know what they knew was true before it was proven?

I am not asking you to believe outright, however I am passionate about this modality and its accuracy. It certainly changed my life! It brings me great pleasure to bring this to you. I am confident you will find these insights highly beneficial for your life, career, and relationships.
