INTRODUCTION OF THE HUMAN DESIGN SYSTEM
WHAT IS THE HUMAN DESIGN SYSTEM?
Human Design is about decision-making. It can show you how to consistently make the right choices in your life. It is a way of allowing your body's intelligence to guide you. Making decisions based on what is fixed and reliable in you as opposed to making decisions from your mind. The mind is always influenced by the outside conditioning and propaganda and doesn't reflect your uniqueness. It can show you how to live not according to rules, advice and opinions of others, but as an original human being, as yourself.
Human Design uses your birth time and place to calculate your personal Human Design chart. In this calculation, the positions of Sun, Moon and planets at the time of your birth play an important role. Astrology also uses the birth time and place to generate your natal chart, but it interprets the data differently – and Human Design is not astrology.
Human Design is a logical, easily understood system that requires no beliefs. It offers a unique approach to spirituality - one that talks about things like definition, inner mechanics, correctness, differentiation and inner authority. This language can seem a bit technical at first glance, but underneath is the opportunity for a profound life changing transformation that brings about self-acceptance and self-love.
WHAT CAN HUMAN DESIGN DO FOR YOU?
Human Design is a science of self-discovery. From your personal Human Design chart you can gain enormous insights into your own unique nature: your health, your psychology, your vulnerabilities and limitations as well as your talents, strengths, and gifts. It's practical application carries an immense potential for betterment and fulfillment of the life of each individual. Human Design also provides a framework for understanding human life itself.
Your reading will tell you Who You Are and Who You Are Not. Human Design chart is like an operating manual for life. It can help you understand the story of your life, your successes and failures.Your chart can show you what your authority is and how to use it in making clear, reliable decisions. It can describe your subconscious behavioral programs and patterns. And, it can tell you which of these condition you away from your truth. Making the right decisions eliminates resistance in your life. This alone transforms the places where you are open, vulnerable and conditioned, into areas where you get your deepest wisdom in life.
Often people feel a huge sense of relief when they have their first Human Design reading. They feel validated for being who they are rather than trying to be what others want them to be. This often releases years of guilt, anger, shame and blame. A reading can restore a sense of purpose and meaning in your life. You can give yourself permission to "be yourself."
Here is how Ra Uru Hu, the originator of the Human Design System, describes its value: Learn to see how the vehicle [your body] operates... and the moment you can see how your own vehicle operates, you enter into mythology, real mythology, not made up stuff, not fantasy. You see, it is clear to me that each and every human being has a unique archetypal nature that is here to be explored and expressed. Not by doing anything, but by being yourself. It is our major task, and begins with you simply understanding how you operate. It is the first step for anyone... just to understand the basic mechanics. What is on in you? And what isn't? What is fixed and reliable? And what is open and vulnerable? Where is your voice? Where is your power? Where is your awareness? The greatest gift is to be able to see clearly the basic matrix from which you operate. From that point on, you can begin the experimentation. This is the most important thing about the nature of Human Design; it is here to be experimented with.

STOP TRYING TO LIVE THE LIFE THAT YOUR MIND THINKS YOU SHOULD HAVE
At the core of Human Design is the following message: You are the only authority in your life.
As you live according to your design, the vibration of your energy field (your aura) changes. Resistance and other negative aspects of your life that you were meeting until now are giving way to something new. People you meet and situations that you'll find yourself in are empowering you and support your growth. They are the right ones for you - they “belong” to you. Eventually, you will accept yourself with all your imperfections as well as your uniqueness. You will see the futility of comparing yourself with others. You will live the life that is truly yours. And you will finally love yourself.
As you live out your truth and walk your unique path without trying to control your life, your inner strength and wisdom grows accordingly. And you will slowly, slowly learn how to look and see. The moment that you take the control of your life away from your mind, and start making the right decisions, you are safe.
WHERE TO BEGIN
1. The true initiation into the experiment of living as yourself is your Human Design reading. You need accurate birth data: date, time and place of birth. During the reading you will learn many things about yourself and get the tools to apply that knowledge in practical ways in your daily life.
2. If you can't or don't want to get your personal reading yet, you can get you chart for free online here or here. Alternatively you can also download the MMI software to generate your chart on your computer (Windows only) here or the 64-bit version here. Basic version is free.
Having your chart, you are welcome to read about type and open centers and browse other available material online.
3. If you still want to know more, I recommend you to get a CD with Ra's lecture about your type. You may also purchase the Living Your Design Manual and take
a Living Your Design course.
It is often difficult for people to trust something new and different, especially when it challenges our current ways of thinking. It is normal and healthy for human beings to doubt. New does not necessarily mean true or reliable, but sometimes we have to experiment. And the change is possible only if we step in the unknown. If you will repeatedly do only that which you know, your life will stay the same.
There are many paths of self-discovery, various techniques and processes available today. Perhaps you have been already "working on yourself" for a long time in various ways, and perhaps you have made real progress. In order to try this experiment, you don't have to change your beliefs. You don't need to study the Human Design System. Just follow the simple strategy of making decisions according to your own design. Stop trying to live the life that your mind thinks you should have. And watch how your life unfolds itself into a masterpiece.
