One of my clients is a Reflector Type—that rare and precious contribution to humanity (less than 1% of the population). Reflectors are open and sensitive beings here to mirror back to us the health and vitality of our communities—and ourselves. Reflectors have all nine energy centers Open (white).
This Reflector has achieved impressive success and worldwide recognition for her work and accomplishments (she’s in her mid-fifties), including psycho-spiritual work and the ability to readjust energy fields.
Yet she shared with me that until her Human Design Reading she was still criticizing herself for feeling different from others and not fitting in, and still judging herself for lacking energy and not being able to keep up with others.
This amazed me and was a great lesson and reminder that outward success does not necessarily erase the self-doubt and self-criticism that so many of us carry our whole lives… often starting in childhood.
I am happy to report, though, that over the course of her three Reading sessions she really made peace with who she is, why she’s here, and how (and why) she’s different. She’s now more honoring of herself, her special talents, and her special path. She saw where she was allowing herself to be a “victim,” she unhooked herself from that, and has found a renewed sense of direction in her life.
Every day I’m grateful for the clarity, dignity, and self-acceptance that Human Design brings to people.
