I recently led a workshop in my membership, The Intuitive Business Academy, looking at how you can use your Human Design insights to adjust the way you work, after we had an introductory session last year. I thought I’d share a few of the insights from this that people found useful…
Human Design combines Astrology, I Ching, Kabbalah and the Chakras.
“The Human Design system is not a belief system. It does not require that you believe in anything… it is not stories, it is not philosophy. It is a concrete map to the nature of being. It is a logical way in which we can see ourselves.”
– Ra Uru Hu – creator of HD
Your Human Design is calculated based on your time, date and place of birth. The idea being (explained in my Laymans terms) that when we are in the womb and when we are born and draw our first breath, we are imprinted with the energetic fields around us. This happens because Neutrinos which move at the speed of light but also have a tiny mass are able to pass through objects and then pass through us.
If a neutrino passes through the planet Neptune and the next thing it hits is you as you are born, the Neutrino leaves the frequency of Neptune in that millisecond in your body. As a baby we are a ‘blank slate’ until the 6th month in the womb when we start absorbing the energy around us. This is because, according to Human Design, the soul enters the body at the point 3 months before you are born (even if premature – perhaps the soul is in a hurry!) The Human Design system uses this plus ancient wisdom to calculate your chart. (If you are interested in digging more into Astrology specifically, check out my recent blog posts on this here)
The Human Design Chart Consists of 9 different energy centres as below- these are like hubs of energetic traits and talents that come naturally.
The other elements of your chart are:
There are many good resources online to find out more in depth, but in summary:
Their aura makes them push energy forward. They are ones that can clear the way and initiate new things.
Their aura is receptive. They have consistent life force energy that becomes available through response. Generators want to spend their energy on things that they love to do.
Similar to Generators, they have the consistent energy but like to have multiple projects on the go at once. (This is me!)
Their focused aura penetrates others. They are designed for one on one guidance of Generators. They are most successful when they are invited to do so.
Their aura is constantly taking information in and putting it out again. They reflect their surrounding. That can be fun and surprising if you live amidst an awake and aware community, but reality is often different.
Manifestors= Broad Audience – far reach, making impact with your ideas
Projectors = A narrow niche that focuses on your zone of genius works well
Generators = A more niche audience works as you are here to master your craft, but this may change over time as generators tend to move sequentially from project to project – just don’t try to do it all at once!
Manifesting Generators = You are not meant to have one narrow niche- you may find you have several different sub-niches on the go at once or overlapping projects with different niches
Reflectors = It depends on your environment and who you surround yourself with, but generally you don’t like to feel restricted so keeping it broader and flexible works best
These are the two numbers given in your profile – for example mine are 6/2 – this is my chart below – the fact I have the 12-22 channel defined (between Throat and Solar Plexus makes me a Manifesting generator rather than pure Generator)
When you combine these, you get a sense of the role you play in society using your energy type.
1- Creatrix | Entrepreneur | Investigator
Very new, self expression, creativity. Wants to create a stable foundation. Go deep on research and investigation. Want to feel safe through knowledge and facts.
2 – Natural | Intuitive | Hermit
Pick things up easily- natural ability, natural gifts. Doesn’t need to study- gets on with it- just pick up tools and go. People want to call out natural gifts. You also need to recognise them.
3- Expander | Martyr
Learn through life – trial and error. Move through change. Reframe failure as discovery / experimenting. Try things out. Naturally likeable. They know what works and what doesn’t and use this knowledge from experience. Need to make mistakes. Fearless when using natural energy.
4- Sister | Influencer | Opportunist
Loves her community. Big heart – wants to serve. A natural story-teller. Here to influence. People are drawn towards them.
5- Healer | Coach | Heretic
Great guides in life. Far reach. People want them to save the day – to fix, heal guide. Superwoman energy. Have to chose which problems to solve. Do I actually want to fix this? Listen to inner authority.
6- Sage | Teacher
Ahead of her time – to find a way of living not relying on rules. Questions rules. Leader. Able to see bigger picture. Wise.
