Human Design Insights #14: Step 1 for Living your Design

Living your Human Design has nothing to do with changing, improving or helping yourself. If you try to “do better,” “become your true self” or “learn a new way of life” you will only keep running around in circles. Simply because if you have any idea of who you are or who you should be, you are probably wrong. The mind is such an artist and can conjure amazing pictures of the future, the past and what we should be doing right now in order to get the most out of it. None of what it can think of has…

Human Design Insights #13: Gate 33 “Retreat”

The Sun is currently moving through the 33th gate. This is last gate of what is called the Quarter of Civilisation. Each year is divided into 4 quarters, with each a specific energetic theme. The Quarter of Civilisation is the quarter of building. It is all about form and the feminine. On August 5th the Sun moves into gate 7, the gate of The Army and the first gate of the Quarter of Duality, which is the quarter of bonding and interaction. This week being a week in the energy of gate 33 means that we are retreating from what…

Human Design Insights #12: Interconnection

What I love most about reading a chart is revealing the beauty of how all the different components fit together as a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. Human Design shows the many levels on which we operate. From the primary binary of yin and yang to the 64 gates to 69.120 bases, each level containing essential information as to what it means to exist. It shows us how we can endlessly find fractals inside fractals inside fractals – the universe is infinite. We need to take that information and condense it into something that is…

Human Design Insights #11: The Ajna center

The Ajna center is the archive of our mind. All facts, stories, ideas, beliefs that we carry around are stored here. The Ajna filters the information/vibration that enters our consciousness through the Head center and selects what it retains based on whether the information is in any way significant. This is not a process that we have control over, but it is the process that creates the world we live in.   We do not consciously decide which information is important to us and which is not. In the Head center we are conscious of which information comes in or…

Human Design Insights #9: The Throat center, Words and Truth

The throat center is a gateway, it doesn’t have energy of its own. It defines the energy passing through, but it has no influence over the content. Nothing said is ever written in stone. I have personally come into the habit of never holding anyone to their word. I trust deeply that there is more truth behind words than in words. Because minds change, emotions change, intentions change, energy changes. The moment of now disappears and appears constantly. Words convey what is there is the moment. And every moment is new and different from the previous one. Truth is the…

Human Design Insights #8: the G center

The G center is the center that holds us together. It is a perfectly balanced magnet that attracts exactly everything that we are and repels everything that we are not. Where the Ego center is the physical manifestation of Love, the G center is the nonphysical experience of Love. We experience it as the push/pull in the right direction, the direction of our true Love in every sense. Our G center is the driver our our body vehicle, the compass that holds our true north. When your G center is defined, you can experience the G as a pulling sensation…

Human Design Insights #7: the Splenic Center

The Splenic center is absolutely ancient. It is the first kind of awareness that our ancestors developed, the awareness of the Now. This awareness is still the only form of awareness for animals, plants and life as we know it other than humanity. Humans developed two more forms of awareness, mental and emotional, which has made things very complicated for us. The awareness of the Now has only one interest, to be alive. To see how this awareness functions, think about the awareness that animals have. They don’t see beyond this moment. When there is nothing that helps or threatens…

Human Design Insights: #6 The difference between definition and openness

Q: How does energy enter the body and how are centers activated by this energy? A: The head receives energy/vibration through the nerve endings which communicate with the brain from everywhere in the body. These nerve ending receive information in the form of vibration from both our outer environment and inner body. All cells receive information but this remains unconscious until it is sent to and filtered by the mind. For example, your eyes receive light, but it carries no meaning until the vibration from this light and the code/message that it carries is received by the mind and interpreted.…
