HUMAN DESIGN IS A TOOL
First and foremost, Human Design is a tool for making important decisions in life. Decisions such as;
1) What is the correct activity for me?
2) Who are the correct people for me to connect with?
3) Where is the best environment for me to thrive within?
Typically, we are taught to make these very important decisions based upon conceptual thinking or rational fact finding. In other words, we attempt to figure the answer out by listing the “pro’s” and “con’s”, comparing the decision to our wants and preference, or choosing the most logical or economically feasible answer. One of the main problems here is that we are largely attempting to predict the future which is, in and of itself, rather impossible. Additionally, this vain belief that we can predict the future is mostly based upon past events and experiences. Is the future really predicated by the past? Additionally, given that our memory of the past is jaded, filtered, and quite likely incomplete, the source for information we are attempting to use is questionable, at best. But, what are our options? We could ask around and see what other people have done but that doesn’t mean it is correct for us. What is there to do? There the ancient wisdom that says “To Thine Own Self Be True”. While this truly us sage advice, the problem here is, do you really know who you are? Is there any method for navigating life in such a way that we are being true to our own, unique, nature? Yes. This is precisely what the Human Design System offers.
HUMAN DESIGN SPECIFIES YOUR ENERGY IN DEPTH
Human Design specifies the Energy that you came in to this life with. The essential principle of Human Design affirms that if one knows the true nature of who they are and how conditioning and programming will interfere with that, then that person can make those important decisions of life free from their robotic, learned reaction to life and are freed to make choices based upon what they are Energetically designed for. The result is a life of grace, ease, and flow. This does not mean that life will be some sort of Utopian, fantastic, “happy, happy, lollipops, unicorns, and rainbows” sort of life. Life remains life; complete with all of the challenges, risks, and struggles. The difference is that these are now fully in alignment with what your Energy is designed for and is fully capable of handling.
THE HUMAN DESIGN BODYGRAPH
How does Human Design do this? That’s a rather complicated answer but it involves the synthesizing of three ancient wisdom teachings; Astrology, the Chinese I Ching, and the Hindu-Brahmin Chakras. These are brought together in to a new structure graphically pictured as the Rave BodyGraph. Much like the schematic drawing of an electronic device, it is not a literal picture of the Energy but a representation that is organized in such a manner that allows for interpretation after one is thoroughly trained. Training in to the Human Design System is a 3 1/2 year process simply to be Certified as a Professional Analyst.
This gives some indication of the depth and sophistication of the information found in a Rave BodyGraph and the skills required to genuinely provide a full Foundation Reading.
HUMAN DESIGN IS PRACTICAL AND EXPERIENTIAL
The highest and best use of Human Design is to provide clear, practical methods for following one’s own, unique path in life. It does not offer clairvoyant or psychic predictions of the future nor does it claim that life is predestined with each person simply living out their fate. Human Design offers insight in to the indestructible, unchanging Energy one is born with, what it is designed for, how the egoistical mind will get in the way of this inner truth, and identifies the decision making process best suited for this Energy. How this all interacts with the unpredictable and varied nature of life is completely up to the person practicing Human Design to witness, observe, and report upon.,
