Power of the Basics
Don't underestimate the power of the basics!
When I first discovered Human Design I thought that the fastest track to living my design was knowing ALL.THE.THINGS.
I can't pinpoint exactly when, but I had a major wake up call when someone asked me if I could explain my design to them and I literally went blank.
I couldn't find the words to describe my projector type.
I had such little knowledge of the projector strategy that I was convinced I needed to wait for someone to make life happen to me.
I had 0 knowledge on how to actually use my self-projected authority.
The only thing I thought I knew about my 6/2 profile is that apparently the first 30 years of life were going to be a shit show.
I was so consumed with following other people's lifestyles that I had no time to figure out what was correct for me and my body.
I was so focused on knowing the things that I was missing out on the most important elements of the system itself. Everything changed when I realized there was always something new to learn about the foundational elements of our design.
How I explain it:
Your TYPE is the dance you do with the world
Your STRATEGY is how you learn the steps to master your dance
Your AUTHORITY is how you navigate your way to the dance floor
Your PROFILE is the costume you wear to the dance
Your DIGESTION is what keeps your body fueled while you're mastering your dance
Once you master your dance… the fancy steps, correct dance partners, and opportunities to showcase your moves will follow. But before life can work for you, you have to assess the basic elements that are missing as well as your relationship and understanding of those elements.
My favorite way to dive deep into the basics is by re-parenting myself with my Child Chart Reading offering. It allows me to pinpoint the most basic needs that weren’t honored for me growing up, and gives me the tools I need to meet those needs in a way that serves my design.
Whether you’re parenting or re-parenting it’s never too late or early to invest in these tools for your little one or the little one within you.
The basics are key! Tend to them.
