I’ve discussed the logistics of Human Design, now I want to talk about what it has done for the quality of my life, and what it can do for you too.
Shown me proof of 'unexplainable' things I already knew about myself.
You know you have feelings of, “I’m different” but you can’t quite explain how? One of the first things I learn about my design is I am not emotionally defined. What this means, is, I do not consistently output emotional energy. When you don’t constantly output energy, you are open to receiving the vibrations from others in those areas. Here’s an example of this.
I would be alone, driving or walking to school, work, home whatever. As soon as I walk in the door *for no reason at all* I would instantly be in a bad mood. Before I even saw someone. Before I had externally received any information. I just felt miserable. This is picking up on the energy of other people, and I always knew I could do that. Still, it’s nice to have it validated.
(If you are emotionally defined, it doesn’t mean you can’t be empathetic in other ways, such as observing body language or understanding a difficult situation. It just means you won’t be literally feeling the vibrations of others in that area because you are always emitting your own. Likewise this doesn’t mean non-emotionally defined people can never have their own emotions. It just means they aren’t always there, and they aren’t going to happen if something doesn’t provoke them.)
Allowed me to understand my unseen strengths.
As a youth, I was so gutted about the fact that I could never have one passion. Would I ever find my true purpose? As soon as I dived right into something, months later I would feel empty in regards to it. Why could I never find my thing? Well, turns out I came here to be multi-passionate and to juggle many things at once. I’d been so busy beating myself up for starting things I never finished that I had overlooked the fact that not a lot of people have the attention-span or creative energy to work on 6 projects at once.
Added depth to my interpretation of spirituality.
Now, this one sounds a little bit like an attack but it’s not intended that way. I have always been spiritual, however, I like logic. A lot. I studied science at University. I always loved having proof.
Something I never understood in the spiritual community, is how we can be expected to ‘trust blindly’ in things. Why? Why why why?
I want to know why. I want to see the reason, even if mainstream science can’t prove it, I just want to know how you got there.
Something I love about Design is there is always a reason. There is never being told to just ‘believe’. Sometimes the reasonings are so far over my head I can’t figure it out, but I can clearly and logically see how people used scientific and esoteric wisdom to get there. There is a methodical system and explanation for everything, even if it’s wacky asf.
It SHOWED me proof of my skills and gifts and where to find them.
I had heard things like: “your skills are unique” for a while, and while I believed it at a surface level, Design is living, breathing proof.
I have a 1st line profile, which means that research and data is easy for me. I have a capacity to research a lot of knowledge and it’s so easy for me. I always wondered why people ask others questions when they could just quickly research it themselves — turns out not everyone has that natural gift. The fantastic thing about Design is, each gate/profile/type has a gift. There are no bad lines. There are no curses. No matter what profile or type you are, you will have things that you are FANTASTIC at that doesn’t seem so easy to others.
The problem with figuring out your gifts is that the things that are easy for you are often overlooked. Design, along with an analyst, has the capacity to point them out to you.
It gave me a radical acceptance for myself and for others.
Disclaimer: This is achievable no matter what, and it's not just Design I have to thank. However, it's absolute truth that the system has allowed me to feel authentically seen. It gave me that beautiful ahhhahhhhh moment, like I'd finally been acknowledged and understood.
On the flip side, it has allowed me to see my 'faults' as non-personal chemistry. Something that I am responsible for, but don't need to beat up my brain for. Now when I look up the charts of those I know, I am able to see how they consciously and unconsciously operate, and again, it’s not personal. Not at this level. It’s literally just biochemistry. We all add our own personal flair and flavour to things, but some things we attach way too much significance and meaning to certain traits or desires. This has allowed the non-homogenisation of those things.
If you've been thinking about getting a reading or learning about Human Design, I highly recommend it. Especially if you are someone who wants to understand yourself better and why you operate the way you do. Your chart is uniquely customised to you. I can help you interpret your chart, map out your gifts and figure out the highest expression of all of them. Happy reading!
