It is my honor to support you in using Human Design to discover your life purpose, understanding yourself, improving your relationships, finding your right work, and even getting healthier—easily and without compromising who you are!
Human Design gives you the information you need to start living joyfully and intentionally, to find strength and abundance so you can thrive no matter what’s going on around you. Over the last thirteen years, I have produced thousands of Human Design charts and conducted more than a thousand readings—all with the same powerful results. And I want to introduce you to this incredible system.
Human Design has helped people learn to love themselves, improve their self-esteem, live authentically, and act with awareness, deliberation, and courage. With Human Design you learn to leverage your energy correctly to avoid becoming overwhelmed, despairing, and burned out. Human Design shows you how you understand and “know” things (hint: it’s okay to not always be logical), and it teaches you how to honor and express your feelings so you are never a victim of emotional pain and suffering again.
Where does Human Design Come From
A synthesis of astrology, the I Ching, Kabbalah, the chakra system, and quantum physics, Human Design is a relatively new science of self-discovery. The entire system was transmitted to Robert Alan Krakower during a mystical experience in Ibiza, Spain, from January 3–11, 1987. A voice told him that this system was crucial to helping people on the planet make vital shifts in consciousness for the evolution of mankind. Krakower emerged from this experience a changed man, and soon after he changed his name to Ra Uru Hu.
Ra was told that while he was one of few people who consciously received the information about Human Design, the energy of the system was transmitted to all of us, and it belongs to all of humanity. He was a reluctant messenger and mystic at best, but he spent the rest of his life sharing the theory of Human Design. His courage has helped people discover who they really are, what they are here to do, and how they can go about living an authentic and abundant life.
Human Design is not a religion. It doesn\’t matter whether you come from a Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, or metaphysical background. Knowing your Human Design simply helps you know how to become the person you were created to be in an easy and joyful way.
Though the Human Design system is complex, and it can take years to learn how to create a body graph and chart on your own, the ideas behind the system are actually pretty simple. Your personal Human Design body chart, calculated from your birth data, gives you very specific knowledge about your personality traits, your health, your personal psychology, your talents, your wisdom, and your vulnerabilities. Once you discover your unique energies, and you are able to differentiate between the energy you create versus the energy you absorb from the world around you, you can start immediately making powerful decisions that will help you create a life that is in alignment with who you truly are.
Through the chapters in this book, I will show you how you can realize your inner authority about what is correct for your unique life. In part 1, we will cover the basics of Human Design—what it is and how you can begin to read your chart to effect change in your life from day one. In part 2, we\’ll look at types, centers, and profiles. These are three key aspects of Human Design. In part 3, we\’ll dig deeper and cover gates, circuits, and channels—the inner workings of your personality. And in part 4, we\’ll put it all together and go out into the world with this new perspective.
Human Design is not about changing yourself. It simply gives you the tools to journey back to a deeper understanding of your gifts, your wisdom, your drive, and your vulnerabilities, which can set you free from old, self-defeating patterns of thinking and the judgment of others. It gives you a new perspective so you can see the beauty and magnificence of who you truly are.
When you understand yourself, you can make choices about your life that are in alignment with your true nature. When you work with your true nature, your life becomes a much smoother ride. And once you approach life with ease, you get to live out the beauty of your true self! It\’s all connected.
One of my favorite Human Design success stories comes from a man who was having a really rough time at his job. He worked for an international oil company and had just been demoted for not following through on a couple projects. After doing his Human Design chart, we discovered that he had the energy for starting new things but not finishing them. Project management was the worst role he could be assigned to! And yet that was his job.
Once my client gained an understanding of his true nature, he asked to be moved from management to project start-up. Very soon after, he found that working in a job that was in alignment with his true nature was pure joy. And to this day, three years later, he is doing the work he loves and getting paid very well for it!
My hope is that the information in your Human Design chart will set you free, and that this book will give you the information and the confidence to live a life without limits and find your perfect place in the puzzle of humanity.
