Human Design readings have the power to completely transform your life. Use your results to run your business in a way that is authentic to you.
There are a lot of tools you can use to learn more about yourself, like Myers-Briggs tests, astrology, or the Enneagram. But Human Design goes beyond those three to get to the root of who you are, how you work, and what drives your choices. And Human Design readings can be incredibly beneficial to you, on a personal and business level.
Human Design, as a system, combines the Chinese I Ching, the Kabbalah, quantum physics, astrology, and the Hindu chakra system with your birth date, time, and place. I know, I know — that’s a lot! But as disconnected as all of those may seem, they come together in Human Design readings to calculate your genetic design in a chart called your BodyGraph.
Your BodyGraph reveals your true alignments and shows you how to live in sync with your authentic self. It helps you learn about your decision-making process, your unique qualities, and how you can find fulfillment and happiness. Many websites will give you free Human Design readings online! But the best way to discover your true nature is through a professional reading.
Human Design readings reveal which of the five main Human Design types you align with. Each has different strengths, weaknesses, and motivators. Knowing your type allows you to pursue a career path that will let you thrive and provide true fulfillment. Here’s what you need to know about the five Human Design types.
Generators (like me!) make up about a third of the population. They’re the driving force behind society as a whole. They love to work, love the work they do, and find their satisfaction through their output and achievements. Being a Generator has really guided my own business and how I make decisions and work with my team.
They may not come up with new business ideas or initiatives, but they will always work hard to get the job done. Generators often overwork themselves and get burnt out, though. If your Human Design reading shows that you’re a Generator, take the steps to prevent burnout from impacting your work life.
If Generators are the workers, Manifestors are the ideators. They’re the ones who are brainstorming new concepts, bringing ideas to the table, and starting new ventures. They’re one of the least common human design types, only making up less than 10% of the population. But they’re powerful.
Manifestors typically like to work independently. They let people know the path they’re on, but they’ll go it alone. It can sometimes be difficult for Manifestors to act in teams. If you’re a Manifestor, take the time to work on your communication and teamwork skills to increase your impact.
Manifesting Generators combine the qualities of their two namesake Human Design types. They also make up about 32% of the world’s population, but some Human Design readings don’t include Manifesting Generators. Instead, the reading will give this type a result of Generator.
And like Generators, Manifesting Generators love to work and are fulfilled by their accomplishments. But they also contribute new ideas and execute them quickly. They’re incredibly efficient and their wide imaginations lead them to a variety of interests and a career path full of twists and turns.
With roughly 20% of the population, Projectors are incredibly rare Human Design types. They guide everyone towards their goals and provide meaningful support along the way. In business, they usually show up as managers or in senior leadership.
They value inclusion and recognition. They want to be part of the group and they want to cross the finish line together. When they’re excluded or direct their energy towards the wrong people, they can grow bitter and hit leadership roadblocks.
The rarest Human Design type is the Reflector. They make up only 1% of the population! Having a Reflector on your team is incredibly valuable. They mirror the energy of their peers and can easily zoom out to see the bigger picture.
One of the greatest strengths of a Reflector is the ability to see the things that often go unnoticed or overlooked. They offer a unique perspective, since they can easily read others’ energies and see what’s truly happening. But as mirrors, Reflectors need to protect themselves from absorbing negative energy from those around them.
Human Design readings are incredibly beneficial on a personal level but can transform the way you run your business. As an entrepreneur, getting Human Design readings for you and your team has the power to unlock your business’s true potential. Read on for some of the biggest benefits of Human Design in business.
As an entrepreneur, leader, and business owner, you have full control over your role in your own business. And once you figure out your Human Design type, you can shift your daily duties to truly let yourself thrive.
Manifestors are the visionaries that come with the ideas. Manifesting Generators can monitor your audience to see what they want your next move to be, and then bring that to your Generators to get it done. Projectors perform best when they’re in a position where they’re regularly invited to share advice, ideas, or expertise. And Reflectors often wait to act until they have a moment of true clarity and inspiration — Reflectors work best when they can see the big picture of the business.
Marketing is all about building connections, strengthening relationships, and reaching people where they are. And as an entrepreneur, your marketing decisions are likely led by how you interact with people, especially when you’re just starting your business.
Using Human Design readings to understand how you interact with others and make decisions will show you where your blind spots are. Then, you can bring in team members who have different strengths and fresh perspectives on your marketing materials and strategies. As a Generator, I need a different type of support than a Manifestor would when crafting marketing campaigns for my business.
Plus, knowing yourself means your online presence will be more authentic and aligned with your values. It may also dictate which platforms you spend more time on based on their unique style. I, for one, love email marketing, but you might prefer to focus on guest posting or affiliate marketing. Whatever works best for your self and your values is the right path forward.
Human Design readings reveal your Human Design type, but they also reveal your inner authority. Your inner authority determines the way you go about making decisions and how you trust your own judgment.
There are seven different inner authority centers: sacral, emotional/solar plexus, splenic, ego/heart, self/identity/G, environment, and moon/lunar. All impact your decision-making tendencies in different ways. Your professional Human Design reader can illuminate how each impacts your life.
When a decision feels right with your inner authority, you’ll know that you’re on the right path. Allowing your inner authority to guide you will lead to better business decisions that align with your wants and values.
I’m not on social media. Like, at all. And knowing my inner authority and how I work as a Generator helps me know that this is the right decision for my business. Entrepreneurs hear all the time that they need to be on social media for their businesses to be successful, but that’s not true! As long as you’re making decisions that feel good in your soul and align with your values, you’ll achieve your own definition of success.
Human Design readings are an essential part of structuring your team in a way that makes true sense for your business. You can apply the wisdom of Human Design to see how all team members’ designs work both independently and as a group. When you know everyone’s types, you can develop systems that support your team’s communication, workflow, and success.
You can better delegate when you’re aware of everyone’s strengths (your Reflectors are your sounding board!) and honor everyone’s unique talents and energies. No one will get stuck with tasks that go against their nature. Instead, everyone will have a chance to utilize their skills and feel truly fulfilled at work.
After getting the results from your Human Design reading, take some time to reflect. Think deeply about how you connect to your type and how your business aligns with those values. And be warned: those two might not be on the same page.
Your business (and your role in it) may require a massive overhaul. There’s no point in spinning your wheels trying to be a Projector if your true self is a Manifesting Generator! You may need to switch up your offerings, bring on new team members (and make sure they get Human Design readings), or shift to a new niche.
With the knowledge of Human Design, you’ll be better equipped to mold your business around your energy and build something that is truly, uniquely you. You’ll embrace your authentic self in life and at work.
Human Design readings illuminate who you are, what guides you, and how you make decisions. As an entrepreneur, you can use your results to build a business that aligns with your values, supports your talents, and lets you and your team thrive.
