Human Design Myth-Busting: Why You Don’t Need to Practice Your Design

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.

We can learn ABOUT our design, but we don’t learn our design.

When we learn about our design, it allows us to discern what is truly us from what is conditioning from outside sources. When you understand your design, you can see that you do already know to trust yourself. So that you can move from a place of anxiety to deep trust within yourself.

You don’t need to practice your design, because you already are yourself.

When you consciously understand your design you can begin to gently release everything that is NOT YOU. What knowing our design helps us with is letting go of learned behaviors and habits that we’ve picked up from society and our surroundings. You are uniquely designed as you — and when you can see that what you naturally want to do is built in, you can move through with world with more ease and less effort.

Human Design is the art of coming home to yourself.

A lot of our internal suffering is rooted in the not self.

If you are a Generator or Manifesting-Generator, you’ll know you’re in the not-self when you feel frustrated.

If you are a Projector, you’ll know you’re in the not-self when you feel bitter.

If you are a Manifestor, you’ll know you’re in the not-self when you feel angry.

If you are a Reflector, you’ll know you’re in the not-self when you feel disappointed.

These are signs you can use to know you aren’t in your authenticity. We adopt behaviors and habits that aren’t in our best interest because we believe we need them to survive. We’ve been conditioned to act differently than what is natural to us — so the push and pull of our conditioning and the wearing of false identities we think we need to survive is typically what is causing our strife.

Understanding how you were designed brings you back home to yourself. It frees you to be how you naturally are.

There’s nothing you need to practice when you are wholly yourself.
