What Is Human Design & How Does It Support Reclamation?
In this short article, I want to go into a little bit about Human Design and why I believe it supports our Reclamation Journey.
Human Design begins at the intersection of science and spirituality (my favorite place to reside!). It is a unique system that integrates the best aspects of Astrology, the I Ching, The Chakra System, and in many ways Myers-Briggs, and the Enneagram.
Your Human Design is made up of several components: your centers (which present as either open or closed), your type, your channels, your gates, and your profile. Collectively, these parts work together to form the collective mechanics of YOU: your essence, your instincts, your thoughts, your emotions, all at the core of what is your authentic YOU.
So what does this have to do with Reclamation?Human Design is a beautiful tool to support the peeling back of our conditioning and unhelpful patterns so we can remember our soul selves. When pairing your Human Design Reading with your Reclamation Journey, notice where your Human Design feels like further permission to just be YOU. As you engage with Playful Curiosity notice what parts of your Human Design feel deeply resonant and remind you of dreams you have had for yourself but that perhaps have been pushed to the side due to stories you’ve told yourself of who you are “supposed to be” or what is “normal”.
Secondly, when you come across blocks on your journey where you are feeling angry, frustrated, bitter, or disappointed turn to your Human Design Reading to see where your Strategy can support you to craft action steps that will actually serve YOU as a unique individual. Use what you find to support you in moving through your blocks, your heavy emotions, and the Phases of Reclamation that you are leaning into.
As always, notice what FEELS aligned and what does not. If part of your reading does not resonate, let it go. If you follow a Human Design teacher and something they say does not feel right, let it go. Just like any tool Human Design can become dogmatic and like its own form of box if you let it. Don’t let this define you but allow it to be a mirror that you can use to ask yourself questions and feel into what is genuinely YOU.
YOU are the leader of your own life.
Reclamation is yours,
