Human Design was channeled by Founder, Ra Uru Hu in 1987. It’s a synthesis of Astrology, the Hindu-Brahman Chakra system, the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, the I-Ching (an ancient Chinese text 5000+ years old), Quantum Physics, Quantum Mechanics and even Genetics. The way all of these modalities intertwine is profound and what we’re left with is essentially a map of our Aura, or energy field. Your Aura is the electromagnetic field that encompasses your physical and energetic bodies. It’s the way we process and filter energy/information. Each one of us has a distinctly individual aura and this is what Human Design teaches us. Ra called it “the Science of Differentiation”.
It shows us where we receive energy (and potentially conditioning) from the outside world, and where we transmit energy from our core outwards. The Open/Undefined or White Centers, Channels and Gates are where you’re a receiver of energy. The Defined or Colored in parts of your chart are where you transmit your fixed/consistent energy.
This map of your aura is calculated by taking your birth date, time and location. This gives us your “Conscious Personality”. You may notice that the planets and signs in your Conscious Personality are the same as your Astrological Natal Chart. The second calculation is taken approximately 3 months prior (88° exactly) and this is your body and “Unconscious Design”. Together they form your Quantum Design.
The goal of Human Design is to learn how to tap into the wisdom of your body, heart and soul. To learn how to listen to your inner Authority without letting the mind override it. It teaches us that while the mind is great for conceptualizing and computing, it’s role is not Decision-Maker.
Human Design is a deeply transformational experiment that opens the potential for you to live as the highest expression of YOURSELF.
