Human Design was meant to be SIMPLE.
As I always promise, I'm going to help you break down your Human Design in a super simple way so you can start your experiment.
No confusion, just clarity.
Today I want to talk to you about type.
There are a lot of components to the chart, but Type, Strategy and Authority will always be the basics to come back to.
These are the first things to live by to experience alignment and better communicate with the universe.
Your Human Design Type is how you energetically interact with life, with others and the universe.
It's the expression of your aura.
What often happens when living out of alignment with your type is that the personality and mind want one thing, and the energy and soul want something else, causing a disconnect and mixed messages going out to the universe.
Connecting with your type is connecting to how it feels in your body:
- Manifestors have the urge to initiate
- Generators feel lit up and energized by the work they love
- Manifesting Generators feel excited by numerous opportunities
- Projectors see deeply into the other
- Reflectors feel good with aligned environments and people
Once you feel the truth of your type in your body, and understand your strategy and authority (which we will talk about in coming days), you will begin to integrate your design and live from soul alignment.
Remember, you are not bound to anything because of your type, it does not tell you WHO you are, but how the energy of your aura interacts with the world around you.
You will never "think" your way into alignment, you feel your way into it, and that's what type is about.
Here's a little more information about each type...
You are a combination of the Manifestor and the Generator. You have a big enveloping aura and are often referred to as the energizer bunny of Human Design. You are designed to do more than one thing at a time.
MG’s can multitask and do more than one thing and have a desire to do this. They can feel suffocated by only doing one thing, they are designed to jump from one thing to the next. You are designed to be superhuman and show the world what people are capable of.
However when you learn to channel this power, action and energy into something you have a "hell yes" from the Sacral for, then MG's are a force of nature, creating with great impact, speed and influence.
Reflectors make up just 1% of the global population, you are a rare unicorn with a "sampling aura" that feels, senses and reflects back the karma of the planet with a strong and powerful aura. You are Incredibly sensitive to energies of other people and of the collective, and you act as a mirror that reflects back what's happening Inside another person or the world.
You amplify the energies around you and bring awareness to what Is working and not working, and what is needed. The challenge for you Is to not absorb the energy, but to reflect it. It's hugely important for you to have cycles of rest and time In your own space and energy to sort out what belongs to you and what does not.
You are a moon being, your consistency comes from the 28 day cycle as the moon moves through your design. In order to make good decisions, you need to be In the right place, with the right people and allow yourself time and space to come to clarity. Consistency and safety comes from others, but be mindful of this as It may be easy to lose yourself In a relationship.
Take your time to "know" and have clarity, create strong boundaries and make sure you have a trustworthy sounding board. It can feel challenging for you to leave someone or somewhere that feels out of alignment, but trust your Inner guidance system and allow yourself the time and space for decisions.
