What is human design and what can it do for you?
The Human Design System is a reading of your genetic code.
It is not a philosophy or belief system. Nor is it spiritual, religious or moralistic. It is simply a logical way in which we can see ourselves clearly.
Human design is about teaching human beings how to be their own authority when it comes to making decisions. We are all conditioned to seek authority and approval outside ourselves and to make decisions from the mind. It shows us that we each have a place within us that always knows what's aligned (or best) for our particular energy.....and it never comes from the mind (or what we think should happen).
It reveals how our energy is designed to flow in this life. This map, or blueprint, shows us our individual flow of energy, and gives us the possibility, through experimentation with our Strategy and Authority, to harmonize our individual flow with the greater flow (life).
This is what the ancient wisdom speakers called being in harmony with the Tao....in harmony with nature and the natural laws of the universe. Lau-tzu, the author of the Tao Te Ching talks about "Wei Wu Wei" ('doing not-doing') which means "The right movement happens by itself, effortlessly without any interference from the mind."
It is what we think of today as being in our creative and easeful flow state.
When we start learning and LIVING our design, Wei Wu Wei begins to happen!
How Does it Work?
Human Design synthesizes four ancient divination tools into one system and produces a bodygraph (chart) based on birth data. It fuses together the 64 hexagrams of the Chinese I-Ching, the Chakra energy centers, the Kabbalah Tree of Life and Astrology....giving us a snapshot of our genetic code, or energetic signature.
We are made up of codes....and the code contains a message of who we are and our higher purpose.
The Chinese I-Ching provides the coding structure of human design, revealing the genetic information stored in every human being (along with every living organism). The I-Ching is a 5,000 year old text that essentially charts the seasons and cycles of the change of life. The mathematics embedded in it is virtually identical to the genetic code and it represents the coding that's embedded in every living thing.
The 64 hexagrams (archetypes) that form the teaching of the I-Ching itself, directly correlate to the 64 genetic codons embedded in the human body.The I-Ching and its 64 core genetic archetypes are designed to attune you to the subtlest inner wisdom of your true essence.
Human Design is an inner journey into the coding that's embedded in you.
This process of self illumination and awareness will literally help you raise the operating frequency of your DNA.
A Human Design chart looks like this picture below. Just as we each have a unique fingerprint, we each have a unique design. Every bodygraph looks the same geometrically and has the same 64 hexagrams (gates) placed within it. They have the same nine centers that represent and hold different energetic expressions and frequencies. For instance, the function of the solar plexus center is to metabolize feelings and emotions. This is where we experience moods, desires and sensitivity.
So much information about ourselves lies right here in the nine centers. Depending on whether we are "defined," "undefined," or "open," in any given center will show us where we have consistent access to energy and information and where we do not. It will also show us where we can get innocently influenced and hijacked by other's energy, becoming depleted and making incorrect decisions for ourselves.
These nine centers, along with all of the other moving parts of the bodygraph, give us a holistic and detailed map of how we are truly meant to thrive with ease and flow in this life.
How can Human Design Help You?
The Human Design system is an empowering tool that helps you discover your unique decision-making strategy, helping you to understand your individual style of operating successfully in life.
A human design reading can bring about great relief and clarity in understanding your energy type and how it's designed to efficiently and harmoniously interact with others. It is a powerful tool in examining the dynamics of all your relationships (romantic, business, family, social) and how to improve them. It can illuminate how you're designed to achieve "success" (in whatever form that takes) in this lifetime and provide a sense of satisfaction, peace and flow when practiced. This tool can also shed light on both current and life-long challenges and themes you're here to work with.
The moment that you live out your own nature and you enter into life correctly, this is the moment that you get what is correct for you. You get the correct career and you get the correct relationships. So, you see, it does not matter whether you are a success or not, because there will be no suffering despite your state. You will be living out your nature and it will be clear to you that what is there for you is right for you, whatever that might be. Only then, finally, will there be no part of you that can say: "I wish I could be something else or somewhere else."

This system provides you with a blueprint of your unique energy field. In essence, it's a reading of your genetic code and it illuminates your hidden gifts & purpose. It helps you recognize your individual brand of genius. When you start remembering on a cellular level how you are designed to operate in this world, a magical flow begins to emerge. I'm not saying that so-called "problems" disappear, it's just that the "problems" become less and less disruptive. The navigation system gets re-calibrated and even the most difficult of situations are met with ease and grace.
It enlightens, illuminates and creates more space to be the YOU, you were born to be….the "you" that was left behind due to the noisy conditioning you have unknowingly adopted since childhood.
It becomes "normal" to be who we are not, rather than who we actually are. We are all walking around operating from habits, behaviors and ways of being that we've taken on from others in our environment. Learning your human design will bring conscious awareness to the ways in which you are unwittingly influenced to act out of integrity with your own energy, thus causing disruption, resistance and frustration.
