Types of Human Design Readings
There are several kinds of Human Design readings, each focused on a specific area of your life. It is good to start with a Basic Human Design Reading before choosing to do an advanced reading.
Advanced Readings include:
A basic reading covers your Human Design Type and Strategy, your unique energy and decision-making strategy. In a basic reading you’re going to learn how your personal energy works in the world. You’ll discover your best way to make decisions, how you can tap into your right work, life your life purpose, create healthy relationships that honor who you are, how to activate greater vitality and well-being and what you can do today to start living a truly meaningful life.
“Thank you so much for introducing me to ‘human design.’ Learning about the design of my life and my family’s lives was one of the best investments of time and money that I have ever made. I am now a more confident, informed business-woman, as well as a better parent. For years I have lived the life that I was “programmed” to live by society. Now I live the life that God intended.”
–K.H., North Carolina
A basic reading also helps you discover how you process energy. There are nine energy Centers in Human Design. Each Center is responsible for processing different kinds of energy.
In traditional Human Design you learn that Open Centers (the ones that are white on your chart) are where you are “conditioned”, meaning that you take in energy from others in those Centers. Understanding this is vital because it is in the Open Centers in your chart where it is easy to have your own energy “hijacked” or for you to become confused about what you are experiencing from others and who you really are in the mix of the energy you’re feeling.
It is common to mistakenly believe that the energy you experience from others belongs to you. It’s also common that, in response to the Open-ness in your chart, you adopt certain behaviors and motivations that can sometimes keep you from creating an authentic life.
For example, half of us have the Center called the Emotional Solar Plexus “open” in our charts.
If you have the Emotional Solar Plexus in white on your chart it means that you are emotionally empathic. (This is not the only way to experience empathy in the chart but it is the most prominent and common.) That means you feel other people’s feelings.
It’s very natural to, in response to your experience of the emotional energy of others, to give up what you need and want in order to make everyone else happy. It’s kind of the perfect configuration for being somewhat “co-dependent”.
It’s often hard, if you have an Open Solar Plexus, to feel like you can “manifest” what you want in your life because you’re often worried about how your desires will impact others…sometimes to a fault.
In Quantum Human Design (non-traditional Human Design) we also look at how the Defined (colored in) energies in your chart influence your sense of Self and your authentic expression.
Your Definition in your chart is the energy that belongs to you and that you have consistent access to. It represents the archetypes that are key part of your Life Story and that you are most likely to explore and experience in this lifetime.
Everything that is on your Human Design chart represents and archetypal energy that you can express in an infinite number of ways. I like to think of the expression of each element in your chart as operating on a “spectrum” or a sliding scale.
We have ways of experiencing our Definition that feels good and supports us creating what we want in our life and we have ways of expressing and experiencing our Definition that doesn’t really serve us very well.
Once you understand your Definition from your Human Design Reading, you gain more control over where on the “spectrum” you want to choose to express yourself and how you can start living out the highest expression of your potential and your Authentic Self.
When you understand your energy, it helps you break old patterns and truly live an authentic, fulfilling life as your magnificent self. A Human Design reading will help you understand all of your Energy Centers and your unique configuration.
Your Human Design reading will also reveal to you your unique learning strategy called your Profile. (Your profile looks like a “fraction” at the bottom of your chart.) Different Profiles have different ways of learning. (Did you know that some of us are designed to “make mistakes” and that getting things “wrong” is crucial to helping us learn how to get it right?)
Your Human Design reading will reveal to you your unique Life Purpose and give you even deeper insights into your personal energy and your destiny. Your reading will give you a profound new way to see the magnificence of who you truly are.
In addition, your Human Design reading can show you your unique money-making strategy, your relationship strategy, strengths and vulnerable points in your physical health and the best ways for you to connect spiritually.
