Celebrity Chart: Frank Lloyd Wright — innovative trailblazer (Manifestor)

posted 2019/08/03

Frank_Lloyd_Wright_portraitI’ve always had a fascination with Frank Lloyd Wright and his unusual perspective on designing homes, working spaces, and functional furniture.  Maybe it’s genetic… my father was an architect!  I’ve even visited Wright’s Fallingwater house in Pennsylvania. It is extraordinary.

Since learning Human Design, I’ve had a fascination with the charts of people throughout time who have had a major impact on the world, particularly those who have elevated our consciousness and propelled us forward in positive ways.  Now I get to bring these two fascinations together!

“Human Design TYPES in Relationships” Series: Manifestors

Manifestors – “I’ll Do It My Way”

[Manifestor image]Manifestors, approximately 8% of the world’s population, are crucial pieces of the human puzzle, but relatively rare. They are here to initiate action, get the ball rolling and make things happen.

They don’t need to wait for any outside confirmation before taking action. They rely only on their own sense of right timing although that tends to get them in trouble with the people around them when they don’t inform beforehand of what they are about to do!

Most Manifestors are not particularly good at finishing the things they start. They are really not designed to do the sustained implementation of their ideas and projects, or do follow-through and maintenance tasks. Theirs is a creative and initiating energy.

Manifestors give the rest of us things to respond to—they are like the cue ball on a pool table, bumping into the other balls and causing them to move.

With this basic understanding of Manifestors, we’ll look at their issues in relationships after the description of this Series below.

About This Series

Quick Spotlight: Manifestor & Projector Relationship Dynamics

A couple came to me a few years ago for personal Readings then a Relationship Reading. She is a Manifestor and he is a Projector.

They were eager to learn how to improve their already loving marriage and also how to work together better. They own an art gallery–she runs it and he is the artist.

First of all, the day-to-day running of a business is not ideal for a Manifestor so after her Reading she began delegating more to their employee and taking some time off each week to manage her energy better and focus more on her brilliance—which was generating ideas for increasing their business.

Their pattern prior to their Readings was that she would enthusiastically share a new idea with him for the gallery (maybe a new painting style, subject matter, or arrangement of the gallery), and he would begin the process of shifting to align with and implement her idea. Within no time, she would have several new ideas and be eager to implement those instead. She’s a Manifestor so that approach of “throwing the spaghetti against the wall to see what sticks” is correct for her.

But he admitted to feeling exhausted from trying to keep up with her ideas. It was like he had whiplash from the speed of her frequent changes in direction! And it was a source of friction and frustration for both of them.

When we discussed the dynamics between their different Types and Strategies, they realized that he could simply wait until some of her ideas “stuck to the wall” before he began implementing. And she agreed to “invite” him to implement when she felt good about really pursuing a particular idea.

They were so excited (and grateful) to have a clear and sensible solution to their issue. It honored and respected their respective Strategies. And above all, the solution felt inherently right to both of them.

Health Indicators in Your Chart – Part 1: The Five Types

Use Your Human Design Chart to Help You Stay Healthy and Vibrant – Introduction

There is no shortage of theories and advice for addressing health issues and challenges, and for attempting to maximize our well-being.

Here is a very different approach:  use your Human Design Chart!

[When you’ve read this article (Part 1),

Your Human Design Chart contains information about the energy configuration you carry—it shows the energetic structure you were born with. (Click here if you don’t have your Chart yet.)

This set of energies interacts within you, influencing your behavior and your ability to handle stress and pressure, and determining the most effective way for you to operate in the world.

Your set of energies also interacts with the people around you, influencing them and being influenced by them.

Evelyn's ChartThe energies you carry (your “definition”) are colored in on your chart. These are energies you experience consistently and broadcast out to the world.

The Centers, gates and channels that are white (your “openness” ) are areas where you take in the energy of others. The inconsistency and intensity of these open areas can be confusing and overwhelming, but our openness is also our greatest source of wisdom in life. This wisdom comes from experiencing the full range of human expression in each area where we are open.

How Your Chart Affects You

The Human Design Chart is a bit like a circuit board. Energy flows through [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…]


Celebrity Chart: George W. Bush

posted 2013/05/30

Here is a brief look at a celebrity’s Human Design chart using just a few of many aspects and layers of a chart. Our purpose here is to give you just a partial glimpse, through Human Design, into this person’s energy dynamics.

George W. Bush

Birth: July 6, 1946 7:28am in New Haven, CT

Our 43rd U.S. President, George W. Bush, was—and still is—quite an enigma.

He won the presidency in 2000 in a very close and controversial election against Al Gore. He is only the 4th president to ever have won that office despite having fewer popular votes than his opponent (because of our electoral college voting system).

He was both the most popular and least popular president in U.S. history! He reached the highest approval ratings ever (90%) after the 9/11 attacks in 2001, and received the lowest ratings ever (19%) during the financial crisis of 2008.

He was controversial at home and internationally, even among our allies. This quote captures the enduring irony of this man, “Although his presidency has been ranked among the worst in recent surveys of presidential scholars, his favorability ratings among the public have improved since he left office.”1

George (I’ll call him by his first name for convenience) grew up in Texas, the son of former President George H. W. Bush. Young George went to private boarding school and graduated from Yale University in 1968 and Harvard Business School in 1975. He was active in fraternities and cheerleading and was also a rugby player.

After graduation, he worked in various oil businesses throughout his private sector career. He married Laura Welch in 1977 (after knowing her only 3 months), and the following year lost his first run for an elected position (in the U.S. House of Representatives) by only 6% of the vote. In 1994 he was elected governor of Texas beating Ann Richardson by 7%, and was re-elected in 1998.

He served two turbulent terms as U. S. President from 2001 until 2009. His first year in office saw the 9/11 attacks. He launched wars in Afghanistan in 2001 and Iraq in 2003. He is also known for his controversial economic policies, tax cuts, the Patriot Act, the No Child Left Behind Act, his highly criticized handling of the Hurricane Katrina disaster, and his refusal to implement the Kyoto Protocol on global warming that had been signed by the previous president, Bill Clinton.

Since leaving office he published his autobiography, Decision Points, in 2010 and opened the Bush Presidential Center—which includes his presidential library and a museum, his policy institute and his foundation—in April 2013 in Dallas, TX, where he and his wife currently live.


His Chart

Regardless of your politics or opinion of former President George W. Bush, his chart offers a fascinating look into his personality traits and leadership style—helping us all to understand him a bit better.

We’ll look at just a few key aspects of his chart that illuminate his character.

Type & Strategy

George is Manifestor Type, among only about 8 or 9% of the population. Manifestors are here to make things happen. They are often intent on [continue reading…]


Human Design Strategy

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…]


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…]
