Have you ever wondered how you were supposed to exist in this world, how you were meant to interact with the people around you, and how you as a human were designed? Perhaps you have dabbled with personality tests, astrology basics and other elements that have piqued your curiosity in the spiritual and non-tangible explanations for your existence. You have probably even heard of the term human design and are interested to know more. This article is dedicated to cutting through the confusion of what human design is, telling you exactly what you need to know.
Human design, putting it simply, is a system for self-knowledge and self-growth. This system consists of separate parts that together, create a road map of your unique genetic design. This system was originally founded by Ra Uru Hu in 1987, when he had channeled information over a period of 8 days that would later become known as the Human Design System. It is not a system that is based off any specific faith or belief, but a synthesis of both ancient and modern sciences from astrology, the I-Ching, the Kabbalah, the Chakra system and Quantum Physics.
The Human Design System offers information and strategies for working with each of your unique strengths, helping you to navigate through daily life, career and business, so that you can lead your most abundant, fulfilled and authentic life path. It teaches you to embrace the parts of you that make you different.
A part of our life purpose on an individual level is to learn lessons that aid in growth, coming back to our true, most authentic selves. If we do not make the effort to become aware of our true nature, we are often met with resistance and frustration in various areas of our lives, be it love, success, health etc.
I believe that by peeling back the layers of conditioning, healing and living in alignment with our true nature, it provides the key to unlock abundance, success, love and ultimately, fulfilment in our lives. Human Design can help you in your journey to discovering the essence of who you are, providing a map of your unique energetic design, including the conscious and unconscious aspects of you. The knowledge of this system can empower you to live your life in the most authentic way, helping you to discover what is not really you, but a part of the conditioning that became a part of you somewhere down the line and no longer serves you as an independent adult.
Through Human Design, you are able to:
Human Design provides you with the information and tools to unlock your full potential by shedding light on:
Looking at your own chart for the first time can look confusing and intimidating. You will not get much information from purely looking at your chart for the first time if you are not familiar with the system, so let us break down the 7 main components to get started with understanding your chart:
You are definitely going to learn each of these components more in-depth during your human design journey, but there are two particular aspects that I personally feel would be the most impactful and important to dig into. They are:
Your energy type, or aura type, can be categorised into 4 distinct types.
Generators are and have been known as the great builders of civilisation. Due to their energy and endurance, they are considered extremely valuable to society. They have an open and enveloping aura that makes others feel warm and vibrant just being around them. Generators possess incredibly sustainable energy and is the only type that was truly designed to work. They are capable of getting more things done than most people, and have the stamina to do so.
Manifestors comprise only 9% of the world’s population. They feel different from others and often wonder why. They have a reserve of incredible power that can be turned on suddenly and without warning. They need to feel in control of their lives and strongly dislike having others tell them what to do. They need as much freedom as possible to carve out their life according to their own values. Manifestors do not wait for things to happen, they initiate and impact the world around them. They possess a natural curiosity for things and is the only type that can initiate action freely.
Projectors are a fairly new type that came into existence in 1781, making up around 21% of the population. Projectors, unlike Generators, are not here to be the workers who do things repeatedly. They need to study and be informed, so that they can guide and be intelligent with their energy usage. Projectors can gain access to vast energy resources by accepting the correct invitations and by directing these resources correctly. They should be and are naturally good at perusing information and studying other people. Waiting for the invitation is important for Projectors before making any important or major life choices.
Reflectors comprise 1% of the world’s population. The aura resists, samples and reflects other auras. This type is a wise observer of life with a great gift of reading other people. They have to wait a full lunar cycle before making major decisions in life, and possess the opportunity for a mystical life because of their openness. It is important for Reflectors to find the perfect environment to live in and supportive people to live with. They should be aware of the daily transits of the planets to see the effect it has on them for that day. They are meant to be at the heart of their community and know exactly when a community is functioning properly, and when it is not.
Now that you are aware of the 4 major human design types, I want to let you know that everything you desire as a soul is not a coincidence. The things you want and are attracted to you are signs towards where you should go towards in order to find and discover your gifts and live your most authentic path.
Human Design helps to clear ourselves of conditioning so that we can get into alignment with the things that we desire, what was meant for us, and live our purpose. So, summarising this post, we have discussed:
