Giving Yourself the Gift of You

How knowing your Quantum Human Design blueprint can help you discover you.

A couple of years ago I discovered something called Human Design. For those of you who have never heard of it, it is basically the blueprint you were born with. It is based in several ancient practices, including astrology, I-ching, and the chakras. Your chart is created based on the time, date and place you were born and let me tell you, it is uncannily accurate!!!


I’ve been a student of Human Design since then, reading and learning and recently, took the leap to become certified in this amazing system. I am now Level 2 Certified in Quantum Human Design™ with Karen Curry Parker and on my way to attaining Level 3 later this fall. 


Why? I could simply say, “Why not?” but in truth, I have always been a student of human behavior and spent a career in human services creating programs to help young people develop into their fullest potential. I always saw possibilities in what anyone could be. I called myself among the last of the idealists.


As I began to explore my Human Design Chart, I had so many “aha” moments that explained why I am the way I am and where my conditioning led to my own limiting beliefs.  For instance, I learned that my open Heart or Identity Center made me vulnerable to feeling unlovable, which I carried with me most of my life. So much so that this became a focus area of my recent Vision Board with the affirmation  ”I am allowing myself to accept that I am worthy and deserving of the love I receive”. Boy, that was a powerful statement for me to write – and believe.


I also learned why gut level, in-the-moment decision-making doesn’t work for me.  Now I do receive those gut impulses that tell me yes or no but acting on them isn’t in my best interest.  When I reflect back, I can see how when I only relied on those, I often regretted my decision later on. Then I’d have to figure out how to get out of it, if I could get out of it.  I have come to understand that, for me, and interestingly for my husband, son, daughter-in-law, granddaughter, we need time to feel the decision through our bodies to ensure it is the right one.  By giving ourselves that time, and for me it’s 24-48 hours, if we find ourselves waffling about it, the answer is clearly “no”.  So now, I ask for time to mull it over, knowing that when I commit to something, it needs to be truly worthwhile for me for the staying power of completing my commitment.


And that brings something else up. My energy levels. I am not designed for sustainable work force – I have to have breaks and work in my natural rhythm of time. When I do, I am actually so much more productive. Now I understand why working as an independent consultant worked best for me for so many years and why now, being an entrepreneur does too.


And this is just the tip of the iceberg. It is reassuring to learn what I know so I can breathe that back into me. It is helpful to see where I was conditioned and learn how to reframe my stories. And my card reading has deepened as I see how the messages are so connected to my design.

I am now offering Quantum Human Design™ readings because I want to help guide you to giving yourself the best gift ever – the gift of you in your ultimate alignment to your blueprint. How amazing is that! Just click here to get started!
