Have you ever felt like you were struggling to find your place in the world or wondered why specific patterns and obstacles keep repeating in your life? If so, you might be interested in exploring the world of Human Design.
What Is Human Design?
Human Design is a system that combines astrology, the I Ching, the Kabbalah, and quantum physics to create a unique blueprint for each individual. According to Human Design, every person is born with a specific set of traits and characteristics that make them who they are.
Human Design is not a religion or belief system but a tool for self-discovery and personal growth. It can help you better understand your strengths, weaknesses, and purpose. By aligning with your true nature, you can live a more authentic, fulfilling life and uniquely contribute to the world.
Where did Human Design Originate?
The origins of Human Design can be traced back to the 1980s when a man named Ra Uru Huh (born Robert Alan Krakower) – began studying various esoteric teachings. In January 1987, he had a remarkable, otherworldly experience followed by an encounter with “a Voice,”. This encounter lasted eight days and nights, during which he received a transmission of details—what is known today as the “Human Design System.”
What is a Human Design Chart?
The Human Design chart is a visual representation of an individual’s blueprint. It consists of nine centres, each representing a different aspect of a person’s life, based on the chakra system – the head, anja, throat, heart/ego, g centre, sacral, solar plexuses, spleen and root. Each centre is further divided into gates and channels representing specific traits and characteristics. As a Human Design practitioner, I only need your birth date, time, and location; I can then create a chart that reveals your unique blueprint by analysing the positions of the planets and other celestial bodies at birth and 88 days before birth when the soul is believed to enter the body.
What Are The Key Elements of a Human Design Chart?
One of the key elements of Human Design is your type. There are five different types, each with its own strengths and challenges. These types are manifestors, generators, projectors, reflectors, and manifesting generators. Understanding your type can help you make better decisions and live a more fulfilling life.
Another critical element of Human Design is your strategy. You should take this living approach to achieve your goals and fulfil your potential. For example, a manifestor’s strategy is to initiate, while a generator’s strategy is to respond. By following your strategy, you can tap into your natural abilities and find greater success and less resistance in life.
In addition to type and strategy, one of the fundamental principles of Human Design is the concept of “authority.” Each person has their own inner guidance system, which they can use to make decisions aligned with their true nature. Understanding your authority can help you make decisions that align with your highest good rather than based on societal or familial pressures. This refers to the inner voice that guides us in making decisions. There are several types of authority, including emotional, sacral, and splenic. You can make better decisions by learning to listen to your inner voice.
Human Design also includes the concept of centres, the energy centres in the body responsible for different aspects of life. There are nine different centres based on the chakra system, each with its own unique qualities and challenges. By understanding the centres in their chart, you can learn to work with their energy more effectively and live a more balanced life.
In Human Design, your profile is the two numbers that represent your personality and purpose in life. There are 12 different profiles, each with its own unique characteristics and challenges. By understanding your profile, you can better understand yourself and your place in the world.
Another important aspect of Human Design is the concept of “conditioning.” This refers to the ways in which the people and environments around them influence individuals. By becoming aware of our conditioning, we can begin to untangle ourselves from the patterns and beliefs that are not truly our own.
