Example of how Type & Strategy can make/break marriage & business [case study]

It’s easy for me to talk about the power of using Type and Strategy in our lives (I’m a bit biased, of course!), but it makes the most sense when we can hear how it really impacts other people in their lives.

So I thought I’d share a quick story with you about Karen and Sergio and how they used their Types and Strategies to improve their marriage (of 27 years) and their business.

When Karen came to me for a Reading, she was struggling. She and her husband run a gallery together… he is the artist and she manages the business.

  • She was worn out from the daily operations of being at the gallery every day
  • She wasn’t using her true brilliance for strategically increasing their business
  • They were irritated with each other from the whole process

First, we focused on her. She is a Manifestor so she is designed to initiate things and get the ball rolling, but not to do all the work of implementing and follow through.   [continue reading…]

Quick Tip: My NEW decision-making process

I love Human Design and the extraordinary knowledge, wisdom and structures that it offers to help us live happier, healthier, more productive, more successful, and more aligned lives.

The top-most tool (in my opinion) that it gives us is our personalized decision-making strategy and authority.

Decisions and actions are the levers that give us access to changing the experiences and the outcomes of our lives.

What I’ve learned, however, in my ten-plus years of experimenting with my own design and strategy (1/3 Projector with Splenic Authority) and helping hundreds of my clients with theirs, is that it’s useful to add a little extra tweaking to our process… as we learn and refine how it all works best for us.   [continue reading…]

How to Tell If You’re Living Your NOT-SELF — Part 2

In our recent article How to Tell If You’re Living Your NOT-SELF — Part 1, we began an exploration of the useful and revealing Human Design concept of the NOT-SELF by looking at Generator and Projector Types.

Here in Part 2, we complete the topic by looking at Manifestor, Manifesting Generator, and Reflector Types.

The introductory sections are repeated below so you don’t have to read Part 1 to understand Part 2!

~~~~~~~~

Does your path feel a bit bumpy at times? Are you struggling, or seriously lacking “flow” in your life? If so, you may be experiencing your NOT-SELF theme!

“What is a NOT-SELF Theme?”

confused round faceWhen you are NOT living according to the decision-making Strategy of your Human Design Type, you are probably living your NOT-SELF.

“So, How Can I Know Who My REAL-SELF Is?”

That’s easy. Your Human Design Type (from your personal chart—if you don’t have yours click here) is the fundamental energy structure you were born with. This structure determines the role in life you are “designed” to play and also gives you the decision-making and action-taking strategy that is specifically correct for your energy.

“Why Is That Important?”

When your choices and actions are in alignment with your natural energetic structure—which they are by using the Strategy for your Type—then you are living true to your real SELF… your Authentic SELF. And that’s when [continue reading…]

Quick Tip: Living Your Strategy is KEY

Living Your Strategy is the KEY to unlocking all of your potential and unfolding all of your natural magnificence.

  • If your decisions and actions are not lined up with your in-born energy patterns…
  • If you are struggling and working hard yet not producing the results you want (and that you know you’re capable of)…
  • If life seems hard and unfair and you feel angry, frustrated, impatient, bitter, or disappointed much of the time…

THEN you are NOT living your Strategy. Only by following your Strategy can all of your amazing energies, themes, and purpose be fully expressed by you.

Human Design Strategy – Back to Basics

How to Make Decisions and Take Actions that Align with Your Authentic SelfQuestion Mark Face

Having a how-to manual for your life would be great, wouldn’t it!

  • Knowing when to zig and when to zag
  • Knowing the best way to approach and influence people
  • Making big decisions with confidence
  • Knowing when you are on-path to fulfill your soul’s purpose, and how to get back on track when you’ve strayed

This is the core of how your Human Design Strategy can help you. It’s the User’s Manual we’ve all been hoping for!

Even if you already know your Strategy, you will get value from reviewing these basics.

All About Energy Alignment

Here are the fundamentals of using Strategy to help you live a happy and successful life.

There are five energy Types in Human Design—each has a different energetic structure.

The five Types are called: Manifestor, Generator, Manifesting Generator, Projector, and Reflector. You learn which Type you are from your personal Human Design chart. Click here if you don’t have yours yet.

Each energy Type has a specific decision-making and action-taking Strategy.

When you make decisions and take actions using the Strategy for your Type, you align with your natural energetic structure. That alignment allows for “flow” because you’re working with your natural energy, rather than against it. It’s like turning your canoe around and floating easily downstream after having paddled upstream so hard for so long. [continue reading…]

Article: Using Sacral Sounds as a Powerful Guidance Tool

Decision-Making Advice for Defined Sacrals

Your Human Design chart shows YOUR configuration of the nine energy centers—the triangles, squares and diamond shape on your bodygraph. Usually, they are a mix of some colored in and some white.

Those centers represent the different types of energies we process as human beings, including communication energy, emotional energy, and life force energy.

Of the nine centers four are MOTORS, which provide energy for taking action.

Of those four motor centers, the SACRAL CENTER (second square up from the bottom) is the most powerful. It provides sustainable life force and workforce energy when it is colored red. It is designed to RESPOND to life.

Only Generators and Manifesting Generators have a colored (“Defined”) Sacral Center. Their correct decision-making Strategy is to wait for things to show up in life and then respond to them. Their response lets them know whether to take action or not.

Using Sacral Sounds

The Sacral Center is the internal navigational tool that allows Generators and Manifesting Generators to make powerful life choices with clarity and correctness. [continue reading…]

Human Design Strategy Basics

[You can read an updated/expanded version of this article about Human Design Strategy HERE]

Let’s get practical.

Why bother learning all this Human Design stuff about yourself?  What good does it really do?

I could go on and on about the profound impact it makes on my clients’ lives, the life-changing difference it’s made in my life, and how it can literally give you a complete ‘paradigm shift’. (That phrase is bandied about quite a bit… but knowing your Human Design does permanently change the way you see yourself, others, and the world. That is a true paradigm shift.)

But I’m not going to. Instead, we’re going to get really practical.

Knowing your Human Design Type and Strategy Human Design Mandalagives you a decision-making and action-taking strategy that is specifically correct for YOU. 

It’s not some generic approach. Not something that works for me but probably won’t work for you. Not something based on subjective answers you gave to a bunch of generalized questions.

This is completely specific to you. [continue reading…]
