Human Design System

From The Definitive Book of Human Design by Lynda Bunnell and Ra Uru Hu –

“The Human Design System synthesizes aspects of to types of science: The ancient observational system of Astrology, the Chinese I’Ching, the Hindu-Brahmin Chakras and The Tree of Life from the Zohar/Kabbalist tradition; and the contemporary disciplines of Quantum Mechanics, Astronomy, Genetics and Biochemistry. As a logical, empirical and practical system, Human Design does not ask you to believe anything. It merely offers you the opportunity to explore and experiment with the mechanics of your nature, and your evolving consciousness, in order to find out for yourself exactly what works for you.”

Well, I’ve been studying all about the Human Design System and I’m impressed! I wanted a place to explore this experimentation and I couldn’t think of a better place than here. BTW, the above photo isn’t my chart.

So, hop along on my personal Human Design experiment! It’s called experiment because it’s NOT meant to be a ‘follow it all or nothing’ type of thing. It’s NOT a belief system. It’s just a guide, another tool to help us understand ourselves and others better. A self-knowledge system. Becoming aware of how we can put our best foot forward according to our unique energy life force.

As with most of the Human Design language, I urge you not to take the meaning of some words at face value.

Have you explored the Human Design System? You can find a little explanation when you click on the Human Design Session under my extras tab. There is a ton of free information on the web and on YouTube.

There’s a lot to discover on this journey of experimentation but the first thing that intrigued me were the 5 types in the Human Design System. So, let’s begin there.

5 Human Design Types

  • Manifester

  • Generators

  • Manifesting Generators

  • Projectors

  • Reflectors


Per my Human Design Chart I’m a Projector which means I’m able to see into the energy of others and experience people in unique ways which allows me to be a great leader. My wisdom comes from seeing others, seeing a system, or seeing a concept in a new way. Projectors are GUIDES.

Side note – So far on my own personal wellness journey, I’ve discovered that in my Human Design chart my type is a Projector who sees into the energy of others. I identify as Clairsentience (described as a clear feeling) meaning sensing and feeling the energies around me. And I’ve always identified as an empath which is described as highly aware of the emotions of those around me (could be a trauma response for not knowing how I feel but knowing the feelings of others). And there’s also something in my Human Design chart that says that I carry the energy to bring the unknown into knowing bringing into the world an inner knowing. AND my chart has the 3 bottom centers undefined. Actually I have a lot of centers that are undefined. Which means I absorb others energies in those centers.

There are two other key factors that aide in the Human Design to go along with the Projector type. One is what is called strategy. The projectors strategy is to wait for recognition and invitations.

This means that as I’m waiting for an invitation, I’m studying my craft, possibly putting myself out there a little bit in the direction I want to take, and doing the back end of things to prepare for the invitations. It’s said that I must protect my energy with whom I choose to accept invitations. Invitations can be for jobs, relationships, moving, and etc. I haven’t always been good at this, but am learning through the unconditioning process.

Projectors are here to help guide the Manifesters (best when they are making a difference), the Generators (destined to build/do the work), and the Manifesting Generators (holds both Generators & Manifesters characteristics). The Reflectors are very attuned to the world around them and quickly pick up on the quality of energy that they come into contact with daily.

Projectors are better when working about 3 hours during the day and resting more often.

The Second key factor is the Authority. This is how we make our decisions. Mine is the Ego Authority. In this case the ego has more to do with the heart and isn’t what you may think of when hearing the word ego.

My decision making process comes from my will to do something. When I receive the correct recognition and invitation for something, I listen to my will. Do I have the will to sustain, participate, and/or move forward with such an invitation? If it’s a strong yes, I’ll accept the recognition and invitation.

Another factor in my particular Human Design chart is the way it’s recommended for Projectors to manifest. I have a ‘strategic’ way that is recommended to manifest which means the usual way; lists, visualization, and etc. The other way within the Human Design chart is to have the ‘receptive’ way to manifest which doesn’t require the lists and etc. I will write about this one later.

There’s so much more to go into about this, but our attention spans are limited now-a-days. lol

Just having this awareness about myself has already impacted my life and how I interact within our chaotic world.

It’s time to explore Human Design Profile lines 2/4 the Hermit/Opportunist. As with most Human Design language, I urge you not to take the meaning at face value or think that your profile lines is literally what drives you. It’s just another tool to provide some insight for us to understand what could be driving our patterns and behaviors. (The photo above isn’t my chart.)

You can find all sorts of free information on the web and Youtube. There’s also a few places to make your FREE Human Design chart. I like GeneticMatrix.com and MyBodyGraph.com

The above profile isn’t mine. But you can see the profile from this one by looking at the first numbers in the two rows. The right side is the conscious/personality side 38.1 and the left side is the subconscious/design side 48.3. So, this profile is a 1/3. the 38 and 48 are gates and we can dive into them at a later time.

Even if your profile is different than mine (2/4) You could have the 2 or the 4 line in other parts of your body graph. Such as the example there are four line 2’s in the conscious side and two line 2’s in the subconscious side in different gates.

There are 12 Profiles and is considered the costume of our purpose. It is the recognition of the fundamental duality that exists within each of us. The basis of the Profile is the Hexagram.

The six basic Profile line themes are:

(1) Investigator

(2) Hermit

(3) Martyr

(4) Opportunist

(5) Heretic

(6) Role Model

I’m a hermit opportunist by design (Human Design). That’s a 2/4 profile. Which means I’m aware (conscious) of my hermit tendencies and unaware (subconscious) of my opportunist tendencies.

The Hermit (line 2 profile) loves to recharge by being alone. Has the natural ability to pick up on things quickly. Needs someone to draw them out of the hermit mode by recognizing what they are good at and inviting them to do something. Then it’s up to the hermit to accept or not accept that invitation depending on their strategy to make the best decision for themselves. My strategy is the ego/heart/will which means I need to feel a strong will to know that it’s something I really want (have the will) to do before accepting it.

The Opportunist (line 4 profile) is a natural born people person/networker. A natural connector of people/bringing people together. This profile line is in my subconscious. Which just means I identify more with the hermit (which I do) rather than the natural born people person! Although relationships mean a great deal to me, I still would much rather be alone.

Our Human Design Profile is just one part of the whole picture. Take in the information and experiment with it. Do you find that things work out differently when you follow your Human Design Profile? Remember it’s important to follow your type (mine is a projector), your strategy (mine is to wait for the invitation), and your authority (mine is ego/heart).

What are your Profile numbers?

It’s time to explore the Human Design of Motivation (not the typical definition of it). Starting with the first one which is Fear (not the typical definition of it). I will post the other 5 later. (The photo is not my chart)

You can find what your motivation line is by looking up your chart on GeneticMatrix.com

There are 6 Motivation lines:

(1) Fear

(2) Hope

(3) Desire

(4) Need

(5) Guilt

(6) Innocence

Motivation in the Human Design System describes how you are designed to provide your uniqueness to the other when it’s correct for you to do so. It’s a deeper part of the Human Design substructure. As with most of the Human Design language, I urge you not to take the meaning at face value or think that your motivation line is literally what drives you. It’s just another tool to provide some insight for us to understand what could be driving our patterns and behaviors.

(1) Fear Motivation –

This motivation is tied to survival instincts. It’s our most basic need to understand something to its core.

We want to know all the details of the things that we are interested in. We dive deep, research, and explore in constant pursuit of truth. We question things that others may not question and are not satisfied with knowing things just on the surface level. We need to know everything or as much as we can in order to feel safe. We wonder if it’s better to work on things alone or in a group.

We prefer to give ourself plenty of time to really investigate something before we commit our energy to it completely. Although we are always searching to get to the root of truth, we must be mindful to not let that need to be 100% certain stand between us taking action for our own personal growth.

When we feel rooted and secure in our knowing enough about something, we are better able to make a decision.

Our Human Design motivation line is just one part of the whole picture. Take in the information and experiment with it. Do you find that things work out differently when you follow your Human Design motivation line? Remember it’s important to follow your type (mine is projector), strategy (mine is to wait for the invitation), and your authority (mine is ego/heart).

P.S. If you want a deeper rabbit hole, there’s also the Transferred Motivation to look into. My Human Design Motivation is Fear and my Transferred Motivation is Need. Basically, the Transferred Motivation is like the Not-Self Motivation. If I make a decision from my Transferred (not-self) Need Motivation instead of my Fear Motivation, it typically isn’t the right decision and will lead to feeling bitter. Bitter is my Not-Self theme as a Projector Type.
