Many people have asked me why we need to have our Human Design charts done.  They tell me they know themselves very well; they tell me they don't want to be limited by anything; it's just like reading your horoscope - I don't pay much attention to that; they have no need to know etc.

There are so many reasons why we should know who we are and in truth none of us really knows because we see ourselves from one perspective and others see us differently.  Human Design gives us both perspectives.  It also gives us the truth.  We can understand and get to know ourselves as we grow and mature but we will never know what is our true self and what is our conditioning.

With Human Design we understand that we are so conditioned to live in a socially acceptable way, that it is important to fit in, have friends, be polite, not provoke, and some of these behaviour patterns are just not who we are.  There are people whose lives revolve totally around themselves; in Human Design terms this is normal, they are individuals - these people have a purpose here to be unique and to show others it is acceptable to be different. They are not afraid to dive into the chasm. Conditioned behaviour prevents us from being ourselves; we adapt our behaviour as we grow up according to responses we get.  If a child is continually being scolded for behaving as a child normally does with curiosity and questions, then that child learns to adapt that behaviour to suit the adult.  That child then becomes a passive aggressive.  Thus conditioning in childhood often creates dysfunctional adult behaviour; behaviour that does not allow us to be ourselves.  Social behaviour likes to stay the same.  It is safe when we know how to behave properly; individual types of people show us it is acceptable, if strange, to be different.  Humans have a genetic imperative to change; that is what our genes do.  They bring two people together to have children so that the genes can mix and mutate.  That is why our society today is very different from "when we grew up".

When we understand our Design something happens deep inside us.  It is not a mental cognitive understanding, although this happens too, but deep inside, our body can settle when we really live who we are.  We all have limiting behaviour patterns which are set up in order to keep us safe when we are too small to take care of ourselves.  As adults these patterns no longer serve us; they simply stop us from living our purpose and keep us asleep.  Our body then takes on the job of keeping us safe and lives in a state of active alert where the nervous system is constantly in sympathetic mode.  This inhibits the natural body functions of the parasympathetic nervous system such as digestion and breathing.  Our cells can slowly move out from being constricted by fear into love where they become large, expansive and healthy.  ( - the Biology of Belief) 

What we are seeing in our Design charts is a map of our genes.  It is scientific and also has esoteric roots.  It brings both philosophies together into the ultimate wisdom.  It brings proof to astrological charts because every zodiac sign connects with the Chinese I'Ching which has now been found to be the same as our genetic code.  When we look at our chart we see how conditioned we are, how we reflect other people and we can understand aspects of us that are reliable.  We learn to trust ourselves.  We learn what behaviour patterns are not ours and know that we can let go of those.  We find out what happens when we come into relationship with others and why it is helpful to work in teams, using each person's strengths instead of struggling to do tasks that do not come naturally to us.  We learn that each person has their own way of making decisions, their own levels of energy and not one of us can compare with another.  We learn never to judge each other and never to take anything personally.  Above all we learn never to expect anything but advice from a Projector and an abundance of activity from a Manifesting Generator.  Can you imagine these two types dividing jobs equally.  It just would not work, but unless you understand Human Design then of course that is how you would do it.  And you would pay them equally.  The chances are that you have hired the Projector to do the energetic job because at the interview he has reflected your Generator energy.  This is a reflection, not the truth.  A Projector can be energetic in the presence of someone with an energy centre but cannot maintain it.

So knowing Human Design is not just about knowing yourself.  It is just as important to learn about the people you interact with so that you can understand them and treat them appropriately.  Never expect a Projector to initiate anything; in a Generator/Projector relationship the Generator always has to be the initiator even though his normal strategy is to respond.  There are people who have no decision making ability; understanding this helps us to be patient with them.  A Reflector, for instance, will need to wait a month to make any important decision, and an emotionally defined person, at least a week.

Give other people a chance to live their lives by understanding their design, even if you are a little sceptical.  If you check it out even to gain a small understanding, it can change your life and the lives of those who are important to you. 

And finally, far from being limiting, knowing my Human Design is the most freeing experience I have ever had.
