The Human Design - It’s all to do with our wiring!

We all have a unique energy wired human body

Most of you will know by now that my time that I spend writing on line has been curtailed because of the many other projects I’m involved in. That’s just me. I have always been actively involved with several tasks and according to my human design chart it’s natural because in my wiring I’m a manifesting generator.

Every human been is ‘wired’ in a particular way. This knowledge has often been interpreted by any of several esoteric sciences like Astrology, Numerology, I'Ching or my favourite, the enneagram system. Today my perception about people’s personality and how they perceive the world around them has been revealed with the help of The Human Design program. This system I feel is the most comprehensive of the lot! People who study this decoding system in depth can tell exactly what the person is like and what they will do or not do...

I felt that I needed to investigate this because they were never wrong about me and so I participated in several weekend workshops. I’m by no means an expert at it but I hope that this topic will intrigue many readers. I will abbreviate some more on this relatively new science, but before I do, let me share what inspired me to write on this topic. It’s linked to the ratings or scores hub page writers can see on their account page.


Hub article ratings - what do they tell you?

I promise myself to write an article for hubpages and post chapter 16 of The Self Employed Housewife saga but when I opened the feed page I saw that my first task would be to reply to all my fellow hub page writers who had left comments about my articles. Having done that, I then visited each member’s hub page address in order to read at least one post that grabs me and leave a comment. Now it’s lunch time and I still have not made a start on a new post for hub pages, but instead I looked at my account page with the rating icons.

All my posts are FEATURED but I have two articles that do NOT have ‘featured – Quality’ according to the hub pages staff. Or is it an automatic program that does the ratings? Why would that be?

The two articles are:

Internet addictions

The Hanging gardens from Babylon

It’s my feeling that those two posts do have self promotional issues, but removing some links did not seem to make any difference. I will look at them again after having posted this article, but due to these ratings I understood why I’m the way I am – and I’m OK with it. Why? It’s to do with my wiring! I’m a manifesting generator! That is why this post is all about the human design, and I have to use my own chart above as an example.

( Its now the 15th of August and the post: the Hanging Gardens from Babylon is now being featured again!)

The most important observation anyone should have about themselves, will become a great help in their lives. Learn about our biological consciousness.

What is our genetic code?

What I love the most about the Internet is the opportunity it gives us to learn not only facts we need in our daily life, but also about other people and their lives. I have learned that in spite of all our differences – our opinions, cultures, believes, circumstances, etc. people remain the same.

We are in the midst of a monumental Awakening that is taking place within the heart and mind of every man, woman, and child on Earth. This is true whether a person is consciously aware of it or not. That is why by embracing the idea that we have embodied a biological program and that we all identify ourselves through being human, we must not forget that our soul or spirit is the True IAM. The human body is composed of 100 trillion cells and the instructions for creating all the cells in our bodies are found in our DNA.

The Human Design System is all about the reading of our genetic code. ... Like our cells we are made up of codes….and the code contains a message of who we are, and how we interact with others during our human incarnation.

The five different human design types are:

All you need to find our own type is your birth time and place.

• See who you are.
• Identify your true nature.
• Distinguish between yourself and your conditioning.
• Understand behavioral patterns and habits.
• Uncover the dynamics of your relationships.
• Know how your partners, friends and children experience their reality.
The five types are:

  1. Manifestor - ( They like to inform others )
  2. Generator - ( They wait for a response in their outer reality)
  3. Manifesting generator - (They wait for a response: confirm to a commitment and inform others)
  4. Projector - (These people will always wait for an invitation)
  5. Reflector - ( these people reflect their environment)

The main difference between each type is in their auric energy quality that determines a way of approaching and navigating life. Our human bodies are objects moving in space. Just like a streetcar when driven off the road, we too encounter problems and resistance when we don't respect our unique nature.
Learn to live consciously and in harmony with others

The nine body motor centres

The Nine Centers are represented by nine geometric shapes, and they are the primary building blocks of a chart. These squares and triangles are connected together through 32 Channels.

Like the chakra’s, they are energizing wheels that interact with the energy frequencies around us. In the Human design system they use the term defined or not defined in order to interpret a chart

  1. 1. The Head Center – Inspiration
    Biological Attribute: The Pineal Gland
  2. 2. The Ajna Center - Conceptualization
    Biological Attribute: The Pituitary Gland
  3. 3. The Throat Center – Metabolism
    Biological Attribute: The Thyroid and Para-thyroid glands
  4. 4. The G Center - Love, Direction and Identity
    Biological Attribute: The Liver and blood
  5. 5. The Heart Center - Will or Ego Center, Surviving in the material plane
    Biological Attribute: The Heart
  6. 6. The Splenic Center - Health, Feel-good and Survival
    Biological Attribute: Lymphatic system and the Spleen
  7. 7. The Sacral Center - Sexuality, Fertility, Vitality, Movement and Persistence, the motor of our life force. (Everyone who has this colored (Defined) in their chart is a Generator or a Manifesting Generator like me)
    Biological Attribute
    : Ovaries and Testes
  8. 8. The Solar Plexus Center - Feelings, Emotions and Sensitivity
    Biological Attribute: Kidneys, Prostate, Pancreas and the Nervous system
  9. 9. The Root Center - Pressure, Drive and Stress
    Biological Attribute: The Adrenaline Glands

If any of the centers are open (white) in a chart then this person is open within that energy center to take on others energy, either to learn or to awaken to who they are. In other words when the aura/s of others come in contact with our own (open center) we can amplify whatever is going on for that person, especially if they have a defined (colored or fixed) center. This can also lead to us living out a life that is simply not our own.

My chart shows four open centers, which seem to mean that .... Everything that is white in the chart is filled with 'mind'. The crazy mind that measures everything and is of no value to oneself.

Ra Uru Hu

Ever learned about The Human Design system?

See results

This is a deeply mystical course

The Human Design System began as a revelation that came to Ra Uru Hu who had an encounter with something he refers to as the ‘Voice’ during January 1987. He was told that there is a direct relationship between our chemistry and the spirituality we are attuned to. This is truly a deeply mystical course that will reveal to you secrets long forgotten.

What I have understood so far is that each person is seen as a distinct differentiated being and that each person is empowered to move beyond that imaginary construct towards what is truly consistent in them.

The key to our awakening process has to do with the de-conditioning from our Not-self, by taking us beneath the mental decisions that cause us so many problems. When we realized that our thoughts come from our past experiences and that through self reflective consciousness our true authority will take charge of our lives, only then can this ‘Knowing of Self’ lead us to enjoy this life to its fullest.

Thanks for reading this Human design introduction article.

      Interesting read, Nadine. I also think there are too many guru like types with big ego's who claim to know something, like this Ra Uru Hu guy. At the end they're mainly busy running a business. When money becomes involved there's mainly one KPI left, and that's the money game.

      A truly fascinating article. I learned a great deal. We seem so complicated and yet simple.

      First time I hear about The Human Design. Thank you, Nadine! Voted up, interesting and useful :) Mmm, if I'm not a Manifestor, I'll eat my hat :)

      Very I teresting Nadine. I have heard the term "human design" but know nothing about it. I need to reread this to try to take more of it in.

      Very enlightening article. It is true that we all are product of our wring or conditioning, which limit our spiritual evolution as a human being. It is only by de-conditioning our hardwired mental programs, we begin to learn to evolve. I have no knowledge of The Human Design. Thanks for giving some information.

      This is interesting, Nadine. Where can I go to plug in my info to have my chart generated?

      Written quite well and very interesting. Some very salient points which I highly appreciate.

      My way is one of feel; intuition, gradual transformation through the workings of the Psyche, predominantly by the descent of a pure and Higher Light. It is the devotional way, but I will agree that there are many ways or 'wiring' perhaps.

      You presented your Hub well and it reads like it has some deep wisdom. My love to you on this Saturday evening. God speed, Nadine!

      Yes That might be so, but due to the fact that someone ( who does not know me) could so very accurately tell me things about myself just with my date of birth and place, that intrigued me enough to investigate. When a writing creates characters for a novel, any tools like these are handy.

      Hi Eric nice to read your comment and I'm glad you found in fascinating and informative.

      Hi Martie I'm glad that I could write a hub on this topic, because I did four workshops on it in exchange of an older Apple laptop I never ever used . On my Facebook timeline you can find out who gives these workshops . Dawn lives in Marina da Gamma. If you are a member of the Talent exchange you can also pay her with talents.

      Hi Jodah it was due to the fact that someone ( who didn't know me) could so very accurately tell me things about myself just by knowing my date of birth and place, that intrigued me enough to investigate. I joined her workshops months later because the facilitator, a lady in a wheelchair, lives near us. I'm always interested to make my characters as real as possible and any tools like these come in handy.

      Wonderful - I love Human Design, because it "recognises" my wiring I feel "authenticated", more whole somewhat. It all makes sense the more I peel off the various layers (of Human Design). xx

      Thanks for your lovely comment Dr Pran. Yes to know thyself is the only true reason why I investigate this decoding system - as I like to call it.

      Hi Marisa many thanks for your comment, knowing that you are truly a very good interpreter of anyone's human design chart.

      Your hubs are always so thought provoking, Nadine! I've never heard of the Human Design Program, but I'll look out for it now that you've introduced me to the topic.

      You hubs are truly inspirational. I love them Nadine. I believe rules are formed through social agreements and social expectations and in fact it is generated through social interactions.

      Shauna if you Google ...the human design... you will find a website where you just type in your date of birth and where, then your chart will appear.

      Its always great to have written a post and to read that ( in this case) you the reader has learned something new. Enjoy exploring the human design system.

      Yes you do have a valid point, but its interesting to learn how we all react or respond differently to social agreements, and why we do.
