What Is Human Design And Where To Start?

What Is Human Design And Where To Start?

Human Design is a synthesis of modern astrology, the Chinese I’Ching, the Hindu Chakra system, Judaic Kabbalah and quantum physics, so it combines spiritual learnings with science.

With Human Design you discover what makes you different from everyone else, what lights you up and what drains you when it comes to your energy, motivation and drive. It offers profound insights into your psychology, along with strategies and techniques for making correct decisions and ultimately leading to a life and business of more ease and fulfilment. For me, Human Design was the missing piece of the puzzle that helps me and my clients to understand themselves and their businesses.

Where to start with Human Design?

Based on your date of birth, time of birth and place of birth, you can get your profile on a free website called mybodygraph.com (not my website). It provides you with your energy type, your strategy (your best way to navigate life) and your authority (your decision-making tool).

Knowing your own Human Design opens your eyes to your zone of genius and helps you to navigate the stuff in life that’s hard for you like pitching in a networking group, or selling your services to a potential client.
