What is Human Design?

Human Design, also known as the Science Of Differentiation, the New Astrology, or the Science of The Aura, combines modern science with ancient practices like Western Astrology, The I Ching, The Chakra System, and Kabbalah The Tree of Life. By analyzing your birth details, Human Design provides insights into your unique energy, aura, decision-making style, intuitive guidance, gifts, life purpose, and more. Understanding your Human Design type reveals your individual energetic blueprint and serves as a manual on managing your energy effectively.

The core purpose of Human Design is to facilitate personal alignment. When in alignment, you experience reduced resistance and increased harmony, abundance, and ease. Instead of struggling against the current, you learn to attune with the supportive energy flow that aids you in living your purpose with greater ease.

What sets Human Design apart from personality tests?

Unlike self-assessment personality tests like Enneagram and Myers-Briggs, Human Design is not based on subjective responses but on calculations using your birth date, time, and place. While systems like Enneagram and Myers-Briggs offer valuable insights, Human Design delves into inherent qualities that remain constant throughout your life. This distinction is crucial as it highlights the difference between who we think we should be and who we truly are at our core, devoid of societal conditioning. Human Design unveils your inherent nature with precision, offering a deeper understanding of your authentic self.

What’s my Type?

You can generate your Human Design chart online for free using your birth details. Look for your designated energy type among the five categories: Manifestor, Generator, Manifesting Generator, Projector, and Reflector. Each energy type describes how your aura functions and the unique role you are destined to fulfill.

  • Manifestors: Drive change and inspire others.
  • Generators: Utilize their creative energy to pursue their passions.
  • Manifesting Generators: Inspire through diverse creative pursuits.
  • Projectors: Guide others towards efficiency and authenticity.
  • Reflectors: Empathetically assess the well-being of their environment.

I know my Type…now what?

Once you identify your Type, you’ll discover a corresponding strategy to implement your purpose effectively. By practicing this strategy in your daily life, you begin aligning with your aura’s natural rhythm. This initial step in Human Design is immensely powerful.

  • Manifestors: Inform others about your intentions and feelings.
  • Generators: Respond to situations by tuning into positive energy cues from your body.
  • Manifesting Generators: Respond, then inform, staying present and involving others in your energy pursuits.
  • Projectors: Wait for genuine invitations before sharing insights.
  • Reflectors: Wait through a 28-day lunar cycle to make significant decisions.

How can I use my Human Design to live out my life purpose?

Understanding your Human Design empowers you to confidently navigate new experiences authentically. By grasping your unique energy dynamics, you naturally align with your life purpose. While we often view purpose as a specific action, it’s more about embodying our authentic energy in everything we do. Even without delving into the deeper layers of your design, following your strategy and integrating Human Design insights can help you organically connect with your purpose.
