I remember distinctly being in 4th grade and the girl next to me in music class lamenting her “fat thighs.”
As I heard this girl tear her body apart, I was struck by what she was saying. I hadn’t really given too much thought to my thighs before this moment and her words drove into me like a wedge.
Was I supposed to hate my body?
A huge part of living your design is releasing the conditioning that you’ve picked up along the way that pushes you to live in your NOT SELF.
I say this as someone who entirely missed the point of exercise for years. I internalized exercise = weight loss and smaller body = better body narrative that we are soaking in every single day and tbh, I am angry that this is the world we live in and I hope my pain and experience can help shift your perspective.
It wasn’t until I blew out my hip joint so terribly that I had to take a year off of strenuous exercise, that I was able to examine my relationship between exercise and my body. …
If you follow any Human Design hashtags on Instagram, you’ll find endless ways that people recommend you try or do or buy to “practice” living your design.
There is nothing to practice in Human Design. There is nothing to believe. There is nothing TO DO. Human Design isn’t another skill you’re adding to your to-do list.
FACT: You are already living your design!
FACT: YOU ARE ALREADY WHOLE + COMPLETE.
You don’t need to practice your design because your design is innate to you.
When we learn about our design, it allows us to discern what is truly us from…
Body wisdom is our innate intelligence (intuition) we have with us at all times. When we’re living authentically, we’re flowing with our unique skills, gifts, and wisdom that we unlock by being embodied.
As a map, it helps make sense of the different messages and pressures we receive and shows us which energies will be consistent versus not.We learn to betray ourselves pretty young — so using Human Design as a layer as you tap into your own body wisdom is a wonderful avenue to bring you back into harmony with yourself.
We are designed to optimally perform with our…
You’ve read all the books. You’ve gotten all the degrees. You’ve got the dream job. So why aren’t you happy?
I have one question for you. When was the last time you celebrated yourself?
The culture we’re all steeped in is one of endless acquisition and no rest. This keeps us on a escalator leading to no where. Life is meant to be and is a spiral. We’re cyclical beings, but we live like we’re on an upward trend graph. It’s out of alignment with our nature and it shows.
If you’re looking to increase your satisfaction and live a…
Do you know why I love Human Design? It has built-in signposts that we can use to evaluate if we’re balanced and in our authenticity.
The not-self themes of the energy centers and aura types are incredible tools to evaluate our wellbeing.
We don’t need to learn everything there is in our charts, we just need to understand some key elements. One of those crucial elements — especially in our culture of productivity and more is more? THE SACRAL CENTER!!
When we’re out of balance in the sacral center — or swept up in someone else’s sacral energy — we…
Human Design can help you get in touch with your natural gifts and talents, helping you develop own authority + fight the power.
We are being called to figure out how we will survive in a world we’ve fantasized about for ages — what happens when society as we know it begins to crumble?
Well, here we are.
In the overlapping worlds of self-development, New Age spirituality, wellness, and self-help, a word you’ll come across often is authenticity.
Finding your authenticity means being deeply rooted in your body, feeling connected to who you are and feeling confident enough to make decisions that feel right for you.
As a Human Design reader, I work with clients who are looking to align themselves more deeply within. In fact, the way that I found Human Design was through my own quest for inner and outer alignment.
The great news is that you don’t need to study Human Design or have a…
Let’s start with a little check in, shall we? Grab a pen and some paper and be as honest with yourself as you can be. Let your first instinct lead you.
Before you begin, center yourself by closing your eyes and taking a deep breath. Be open to the answers that appear and don’t judge yourself for your answers. It’s okay if you need more clarity on your answers, come back to these questions as often as you need.
1) Am I seeking permission to do what I love?
2) Am I searching for validation that my feelings are justified?
Zibby: Have you ever thought of that?
Jesse: Thought what?
Zibby: How everything in life is basically improvised. There’s no script, we’re just makin’ this up as we go.
Jesse: That’s true.
