Now…introducing…Human Design! What is Human Design? Well, its another method from metaphysical science that can open up the door to deep self knowledge. OK…yes, loving it so far? Now, what is Human Design?
Your Human Design Chart, also called a BodyGraph, is calculated using your birth date, time, and place, to reveal your genetic design. On the most practical level, Human Design shows you where and how to access your body’s consciousness as a decision-making tool, and ultimately, how to live as your true self.
Like Astrology, the very moment of your birth sets the stage of your lifepath. Human Design is an amalgamation of both ancient systems and modern science. It combines astrology and astronomy, the I Ching and biochemistry, Kabbalah and quantum mechanics, the chakra systems, and genetics. In other words, this packs a punch!
When talking about Human Design or any other metaphysical practice, its important to remember these things are not religions, having no rituals nor taking any stance on god. It is similar to a personality inventory system to assist one with a deeper understanding of how they best operate in the world. More knowledge, more power!
Who designed Human Design?
Human Design was originated by Alan Robert Krakower, who published a book called The Human Design System under the pseudonym Ra Uru Hu in 1992. Krakower claimed that he developed the Human Design system following a mystical experience in 1987. So…yes, many of us were already alive before this system was introduced to the world, but as it is with other things, we just did not know that it was there, it took somebody to break the ground.
In Human Design analysis, planets are displayed in a type of horoscope called a bodygraph. The bodygraph shows the 64 hexagrams of the I Ching at various locations on the body. It is sometimes shown within a mandala, overlaid on the 12 signs of the zodiac. Human Design also addresses dietary regimen and ideal environments for living, working and relationships. Basically, its electromagnetic biology.
