Radically Being Yourself

  • Are you feeling lost in life?

  • Is your mind beating you up and seeing everything as a problem?

  • Are you stuck in the “should’s” and “shouldn’t’s”, or the “supposed to’s” and “have to’s” of your mind’s chatter or outside pressure?

  • Do you feel yourself hitting walls of resistance?

  • Are you being pulled along by the ideas, beliefs, opinions, and impositions of society, friends or family?

  • Do you often feel frustrated, angry, bitter or disappointed?

How can Human Design help?

Human Design is a tool to help you recognize the way your mind creates your suffering.  Using this tool, you move to an embodied way of being so you can relax into the life that IS.

It’s a map to help you undertake the experiment of living according to your own inner authority.

It is NOT a quick fix.

It is a long-term personal experiment of following your body rather than your mind.

In short Human Design gives you a way to make decisions as your TRUE SELF through your body’s INNER AUTHORTIY rather than mind’s distorted strategies and chitter chatter.

Human Design’s logical elegant map of your personal mechanics helps you see your NOT SELF that is pressuring your mind to create a life that’s not your own, and to then recognize your TRUE SELF.

By simply seeing it, you begin to move away from the NOT SELF pressure.  And bit by bit your TRUE SELF emerges.

Essentially, Human Design is a tool for self-alignment.

The trouble is we think we are the mind.

You can never figure out and control what you’re meant to be.  You can only live it. . . Give yourself a chance to actually see who you can be.  That’s really the great joy in this, because it’s a surprise, always.

Everything changes once we identify with being the witness of the story instead of the actor in it.

He who knows others is wise; but he who knows himself is enlightened.

The Problem & the Solution

We suffer because of our minds.  Full stop.

All of our suffering is because our personality ego minds believe that life should be something other than it is.  Or that we should be something other than we are.

Enter: self-hatred, doubt, frustration, anger, bitterness, disappointment and all the other mental torment and misery you can imagine.

Mind is a beautiful servant but a terrible master, so Human Design is a tool to put it in its true place, which is to witness life.

In order to get out of the suffering, Human Design shows that you can:

  • Give control of decision-making to the body’s intelligence through your inner authority, which is faster and cleaner than mind.
  • Shine a light on the NOT-SELF that is pressuring the personality mind to come up with distorted strategies for life.
  • Confront and question the personality mind’s belief of who you think you think you think you are.

The personality mind slowly quiets down (though it never shuts up!) and begins to live its potential as passenger, simply witnessing life, as the body moves unhindered through life on your unique trajectory.

Life becomes a flow and doing is actually non-doing.

Enter: satisfaction, peace, success and surprise.

We’re here to be aware and that awareness begins with oneself.  It’s not seeking something that’s outside.

Do you want to know what my secret is? I don’t mind what happens.

It’s why I love Human Design, because it empowers human beings into not being sheep. Into discovering their power and their beauty and their uniqueness and their own authority.

Life is not for figuring out.  Life is for living.

Where do I come in?

Navigating your life is like watching your own personal choreography take shape in this dance of life.

No one can do it for you.  No one could ever possibly know what the correct decisions are – only you can dance your dance, one movement (or stillness) at a time.

I can’t choreograph your dance.  I can’t make any decision for you or tell you what to do.  You are alone in your experiment of following your inner authority, alone in your skin.  In that way, this is, in fact, the loneliest endeavour you can undertake.

However, if you invite me into your life’s choreography, and I feel it’s a correct fit, I can guide you to see and recognize your unique design through exploring the mechanics of how you’ve been uniquely imprinted, especially pointing out your personal strategy and inner authority in this life.

I can teach you about the basic mechanics of Human Design and the bodygraph so you can begin to recognize on your own how your not-self pressures your personality mind to make up stories and strategies which take you far from your true self.

I can share with you what I recognize about your process based on your mechanics, as well as what I’ve learned in my own process.

I see the Human Design experiment as a process of letting go, and then letting go even more, and learning to surrender completely to the unknown of what your personal authority has in store for you in life, one day at a time.  Rather than a fight, life can be a big surprise – an unfolding of mystery.

The first step in the process is “meeting” your design.

I divide this up into two sessions so you have time to absorb the information and begin to experiment with it

In the first session we’ll look at this overview and you’ll be invited to start experimenting.

Based on the exact time and place of your birth, I’ll describe the basic elements of your body graph:

  • Not-Self – where you are transparent to the energies and definitions of those around you
  • Definition – your life forces or gifts which you put out in the world in a fixed way
  • Red & Black – your unconscious body and your conscious personality mind
  • Aura Type – manifestor, generator, projector or reflector
  • Strategy – how to interact with the world around you based on your aura type
  • Authority – how to make decisions as YOU – the most valuable gift – your personal compass which leads you to YOUR life
  • Profile – part of the overall frequency you emanate in the world, the archetypal role you play in in this life

Then we’ll do a followup session where we can talk about anything we didn’t cover in the first session, you can share what you’ve noticed as you start to look at your life through this lens, and you can ask questions which may have come up.

* This is not a Foundation Reading which is done by a certified analyst. I am a certified Living Your Design guide and do overview readings and support sessions.

After you’ve had your overview, you will most likely start to have aha! moments as you begin to see how your not-self has dominated your life – and continues to do so! – and how your personality mind plays all its tricks on you.

The tools to living your design are simple: follow your BODY through your personal STRATEGY and AUTHORITY.

Simple, but not easy, as there’s a whole de-conditioning process that needs to take place.

In these sessions it’s not my place to tell you what to do, but rather to constantly point you BACK TO YOURSELF.  You are the only one who knows what’s correct for YOU.

We can discuss situations and relationships in your life through the lens of your design, giving you a deeper understanding of where you’re getting distorted by your not-self pressure on your personality mind.

The goal is to give decision-making authority to the body and get free of the not-self mind’s tyranny.

So we question the mind, over and over and over.  It will throw tantrums and send in all its worst fear tactics, but if you keep with it, it will go into a corner and suck its thumb and eventually start watching life rather than interfering with it.

The process of de-conditioning which happens in cycles of 7 years (remember, we’ve had years and years of conditioning injected into us!) will bring moments of “shattering”, as we begin to see our life with a new awareness and let go of the life which our distorted not-self personality mind had constructed.

These sessions are about supporting you in that process.  I’ve been on that same path for a few years, so I may have some insights and inspiration for you.

If you’ve done an overview or a foundation reading with an HD professional, you can embark on the first foundation course of Human Design – Living Your Design (LYD).

In Living Your Design, you’ll learn more about the Human Design system and the body graph:

  • The Revelation of Human Design through Ra Uru Hu
  • Components of the body graph
  • Each center and its biological and energetic function
  • Each type and their strategy
  • Each kind of personal authority
  • Definitions

This is not, however, a course in the normal sense of the word as we generally think.  The goal is not to study to get information, but rather to grow in awareness so that your mind can begin to recognize NOT-SELF and TRUE SELF.

It’s about bringing the mind on as your ally in the process of its own destruction as the authority.

As you see more and more how life works through the flow of the body graph and how we filter consciousness through the centers as hubs of particular types of subtle energy, we also see our not-self more clearly and the way it pressures the mind.

Seeing is what starts the process of deconditioning.  There’s nothing to do or to work on.  We see, and we take the authority from the not-self personality mind and give it to the body.  And we watch the transformation.

It’s not a bed of roses.  Rather, it’s usually a filtering process of giving up situations and relationships which are not actually correct for you so that you have space for something more aligned with your true self.

The objective is truly to LIVE YOUR DESIGN.
