Human Design FAQs
Why Get a Human Design Reading?
- It is difficult to see ourselves objectively.
- Researching aspects of our chart online and attempting to piece the parts together into a cohesive picture is not an easy task. It is much more beneficial to have the synthesized story of our chart described to us.
- The reader not only looks at specific aspects of your chart but also looks at the collective story of all of the defined and undefined energy centers, arrows, lines, and channels.
- During a reading, many customers express they “feel seen,” validated, and can now lean into who they really are.
- When we have this information and we live in alignment with our design, we begin to experience an acceptance for who we are instead of chasing who we are not.
- The opportunity to ask questions and gain practical insights
- There are many layers inside of each human design chart. An experienced reader is going to be able to share a deep level of information with you during your session and you will have the opportunity to ask questions and collect practical takeaways.
What will I learn About Myself from A Human Design Reading?
The most critical information you will learn is your Energy Type, Strategy, Authority and Profile.
- Energy Type tells us how we best exchange energy with the world around us. There are 5 energy types:
- “Strategy” is how your energy works in the world to attract the things you want.
- “Authority” is how your energy works when it comes to making big decisions in your life
- “Profile” is your personality archetype.
- Understanding your archetype makes it easier to accept these aspects of yourself and not judge them.
- Purpose, gifts and talents
- A Human Design Chart shows us the gifts, talents, drives and traits that we have consistent access to. We may be aware of some of these and unaware of others.
- Other information in your chart that may come up (depending on the reader)…
- Your optimal digestion
- Your strongest sense
- Your ideal environment
- Your optimal manifestation strategy
- Your Incarnation Cross – (your purpose)
- Your relationship to discipline, consistency, focus and strategy
What to expect in a reading with me including my approach?
- Human Design Readings are typically 90 minutes. During a session we are typically able to review:
- Your bodygraph chart at a high-level to orient you to the chart
- Your Energy Type aura, strategy, authority and profile.
- The energy centers (both defined and undefined) and what they mean for you.
- The activated gates in your bodygraph chart
- The variable information in your chart (aka the “arrows”)
- The potential gifts, challenges and practical tips based on your unique bodygraph chart
- Depending on timing we may get to (if one of these is important to you, be sure to clarify in your intake form and we will prioritize it)
- Incarnation Cross
- Optimal digestion, strongest sense and ideal digestion
- North Node insights
What to expect in a partnership reading?
- Synergy Readings between partners are 120 minutes. During a session, we are typically able to review:
- You and your partners bodygraph charts side by side (on screen)
- Energy types, strategy, authority and profiles
- Synergies in your chart via a walk-through starting from the bottom of the chart all the way up.
- Potential challenges you may experience when in aura with the other
- Potential gifts and practical tips based on the uniqueness of your charts
What will a Human Design Reading NOT Tell You About Yourself?
- Your Human Design bodygraph chart will not tell you which career path you should choose or what you should be when you “grow up”. The chart provides clues to the gifts you have access to and it is your job to find a role or career that allows you to tap into those energetics.
- Your Human Design bodygraph chart will not tell you how you are supposed to make money or become rich.
What is not included in an initial Human Design Reading?
- A deep dive into the planetary influences in your chart and how they relate to the gate activations
- The gates in the chart that are white or NOT activated in your chart
What if I have more questions after my Human Design Reading?
- After your session has completed and you have had time to process the information, if you have a few simple follow-up questions do not hesitate to email me. I am happy to answer follow-up questions post-session.
- If you have deeper questions that require more of a discussion, you are welcome to schedule a 60 min follow-up session. For example, if you have a specific situation going on in your life and you want to understand how you might utilize human design to improve that situation, you might schedule an additional conversation.
Do I have to participate via Zoom?
- While most sessions are done via Zoom, you can choose not to participate Zoom. Just let me know in your intake form if you prefer a phone call.
Does my session have to be recorded?
- Absolutely not! I always record the session for your benefit so if you do not want to have the session recorded that is not a problem. If you do choose to have the session recorded, I will send it to you after the session so you can refer to it whenever you like.
