Hi, I'm Koya

Welcome Love, to another exciting chapter of our journey toward self-discovery and personal growth with a Lifestyle Design-themed blog post.

Today, we dive into the captivating world of “Your Human Design,” a transformative book written by Shayna Cornelius and Dana Stiles, who I had the pleasure of interviewing in our Wellness Wednesday IG Live. This revolutionary guide unlocks the mysteries of our individuality, helping us understand our innate strengths, preferences, and purpose. Prepare to embark on an extraordinary adventure of self-exploration as we unravel the secrets of our unique human design.

The Key Takeaways:

1. Understanding Human Design

In the first chapter, we’ll delve into the concept of Human Design itself. We learn how this system combines ancient wisdom with modern science, drawing inspiration from astrology, the I Ching, the Kabbalah, and the chakra system. Gain insight into the various elements that make up our Human Design chart, including our type, strategy, authority, centers, and profiles. Prepare to be amazed as you discover how this comprehensive system provides a blueprint for living a fulfilled and authentic life.

2. Discovering Your Type

Our journey continues as we explore the five fundamental Human Design types: Manifestor, Generator, Projector, Reflector, and Manifesting Generator. Each type possesses unique characteristics, strategies, and ways of operating in the world, the key is to find which one you fall into to use it as a tool for self-discovery. Uncover your type and learn how to align with your innate qualities to unlock your true potential. By understanding your type, you can make decisions and take actions that are in harmony with your authentic self.

3. Embracing Your Strategy and Authority

Now that we know our type, it’s time to dive deeper into our strategy and authority. Strategies guide us in making decisions and navigating life, while authority helps us access our inner wisdom and intuition. Learn the importance of surrendering to your strategy and listening to your authentic voice. 

4. Navigating Relationships

Human Design goes beyond understanding yourself, also fostering healthy and fulfilling connections with others. The book provides a profound understanding of relationship dynamics, highlighting the compatibility between different energy types and offering guidance on communication, collaboration, and empathy. Uncover the secrets to building harmonious relationships based on mutual understanding and respect.

5. Living Authentically

One of the key goals of Human Design is to live in alignment with your true nature. By understanding your unique design, you can identify areas where you may have been conditioned or living out of sync with your purpose. The key is to use human design as a tool for self-discovery, and reflection and understanding yourself, your personality, and behaviors to make sure your life adapts accordingly.
