01 - What if I don't know the exact time I was born?
If someone doesn't know the exact time they were born, oftentimes, they can check around and ask family members in order to get an exact or very close approximation of the time they were born.
Also, a copy of their birth certificate can often show the exact time they were born.
Some of my clients have re-ordered a copy of their birth certificate from the State they were born in and requested that the time they were born be included on the certificate.
02 - Is an accurate time of Birth important in order for me to receive my life chart or a human design reading?
Having the accurate time a person is born can make all the difference in the world as to how the chart energy expresses.
I encourage you to hunt this information down, as there can be times where the Type or Profile could change in one minute's time, which would change the energy and tone of how you make clear decisions in a dependable way in your life, as well as how you interact with your environment.
My desire is to offer clear and accurate information during the readings I offer and the information I send to you.
In order for me to be able to do that, we must have the time you were born to be as accurate as possible.
If it becomes totally impossible to obtain the accurate time you were born, you will need to pay for some consultation time in order for us to got through making up charts around the time that you have your best guess, creating potential charts, and interviewing you for accuracy and applicability in order to get closer to the bull's eye, so to speak.
03 - My chart is different on another website or app than the one you emailed to me. Can you tell me why and what to do about that?
TL;DR -- Chart Calculations - Whichi One Should I Choose? (GMT or Not?):
Entering the town/city you were born in offers an accurate Life Chart according to the location (longitude and latitude) you were born (if this is the calculation you wish, leave this box empty in the request form). This is the one I usually suggest choosing. 😉💗
Checking the GMT calculation box in the form creates a "generalized" chart for the time zone you were born in and is not guaranteed to produce an accurate Life Chart (if you know this is the calculation you're looking for, check this box in the form).
Choosing one or the other of the above kinds of calculations can change any of the components of your Life Chart, most especially the Moon Activation, and, at times, the Type and Profile and other Gate and Line Activations (which could become very frustrating if you're wanting to follow the Blueprint of your Human Design/Life Chart). This is the reason a different Life Chart could be produced when requesting a copy of your Chart from any of the platforms that offer one online, especially if the chart is produced instantaneously.
If you've been enjoying using Human Design apps that provide an instantaneous chart (which I encourage you to do, because each platform comes at the information in a slightly different way, which is very good), occasionally, there are charts generated that do not match with the longitude and latitude of the exact physical location of the City/Town you were born in due to being calculated in accordance with GMT* instead, and accuracy is not guaranteed.
This can potentially cause confusion, and can happen more often with the rarer Profiles in the Human Design System (in particular, the 5th and 6th Line Profiles), but can occur with other Profiles, as well.
The two Charts will have differences, sometimes in only one or two Gates and some of the Line Expressions, as well; but occasionally, it could even change a person's Life Theme, which would be even more confusing!
I personally struggled with this as a 6/3 Profile for quite awhile (I'm actually embarrassed to say how long - lol), which wasn't very fun, to say the least, and is the reason I'm going over this with you here!**
In case this is happening with your Life Chart, check out this article by Erik Memmert, the Software Engineer at NewSunware.com (this is the software I use to generate Human Design Life Charts) regarding using GMT versus using your City/Town to calculate Human Design Charts -http://newsunware.com/help/DateTime.
When you fill in the request form to receive your Life Chart, there is an option to request that your Life Chart be calculated in GMT if that is what you're looking for. If you prefer having your Life Chart calculated according to the exact location of your City/Town (which will be most people), leave that box empty.
If you have any questions regarding this, ask me in the comment box inside the request form so I can help you with it. ♥ ;-)
My intent is to support you in feeling Empowered, Confident and Clear as you begin consciously activating the energies of your Design by being Your Authentic Self and who you are born in to this Beautiful Earth Plane to Be. ♥
**There's a work-around for all this, though. If you find yourself in the position described above, or, you're unsure of the exact time you were born, get in touch with me by clicking the green "Contact Me" button underneath my picture at the top of this page and let me know what's happening so I can help you with that. It's super important to me that you receive an accurate Life Chart for your auric field so you feel supported as you move forward to activate the genetic energies present within your Design. If it's not accurate, it will feel "off". I personally don't enjoy feeling that way, and I don't want you to feel that way, either, as it would defeat the purpose of receiving your Human Design Life Chart in the first place!
04 - MY HUMAN DESIGN MANDALA IS PRETTY AND ALL, BUT HOW DO I USE IT?
There's really not that much focus placed on the Human Design Mandala, but I personally enjoy referring to mine and connecting with the energy of it.
At the top of your Mandala, you will find your Life Theme (may be referred to as your Incarnation Theme in the Human Design System).
Also, in referencing astrological information, the Mandala gives you a way of seeing which Gates are being activated by the transiting planets and in which astrological sign. The planets transit through each astrological sign in a counter-clockwise direction around the Human Design Mandala Wheel.
The Moon also transits through each of the 64 Hexagrams/Gates throughout each month in a counter-clockwise direction on the Mandala Wheel. This knowledge can be especially supportive for those with the 29-Day Review (all Reflector Types and some Projector Types), so they can track when a Gate is activated in their Chart and how that can potentially affect the energy in their Life Chart during the transit of the Moon through that Gate.
It's also nice to be able to print out your Mandala on a high quality piece of paper so you can frame it and have the energy of it in your space to connect with it at the subtle energetic level if you wish to do so.
Another tidbit of information regarding the Mandala is, that if you're able to find a grid showing the polarity sequence of the hexagrams, it will actually create the yin-yang sign, which is not highlighted anywhere that I'm aware of in the Human Design community. I noticed this pattern pop out when I was studying a book I have for reference that is no longer published. (At some point, I will be offering Human Design eCourses and Group Coaching, and this information will be included somewhere along the line.)
05 - IS MY HUMAN DESIGN MANDALA USED IN ANY OF THE READINGS YOU OFFER?
During your Reading, we may refer to it briefly so you can see where some of the Activated Gates may reflex their energy or connect with one another through the radiating light rays in the Mandala.
Notice on your Mandala that all the light rays (your Activated Gates) radiate from the area of the Self Center (the diamond in the very center of the body graph). This offers a picture -- both energetic and visual -- of how you radiate and shine your light in the world!
06 - HOW DO I RECEIVE A HUMAN DESIGN READING FROM YOU? HOW DOES IT ALL WORK?
In order to receive a Human Design Reading and/or Consultation, you'll need the most accurate time you were born, along with the date and place you were born.
Choose the Human Design Reading option that you'd like,
Click a time that is available on the calendar that will be a relaxed, quiet time for you to enjoy your Reading.
Booking the time for your Reading is included in the check-out process. Your Reading will take place via Zoom online conferencing.
You will also receive an email confirmation containing the Zoom links as soon as you've booked and paid for your Reading (if you do not receive this confirmation, get in touch with me by clicking the green "Contact Me" button located at the top of the booking page so I can help you with that).
Once you make your purchase, you will receive a link that takes you to the in-take form that all my students and clients fill in before receiving readings, consultations, mentoring, workshops or sessions with me.
If you've never used Zoom before, I encourage you to click the link about 5 minutes before your Reading begins, as you will need to download a small snippet of software code to your computer in order to hop on Zoom with me.
In order to fully enjoy your Reading, it's best to make sure your web camera and microphone are functioning beforehand so you have the ability to be fully engaged during your Reading and see your computer screen clearly and comfortably.
Once inside Zoom, we will be able to see and hear one another via our web cameras and computer microphones. For best quality and viewing experience, it's suggested that you use a PC, Mac, large tablet or a laptop computer.
Your Reading will be recorded via the Zoom platform so you can receive both video and audio recordings of your Reading to refer to at any time you wish, as it can have a great impact on your life in a very good way!
07 - HOW WILL A HUMAN DESIGN READING BENEFIT ME IN MY LIFE?
A Human Design Reading is intended for uplifting and empowering you as you move forward in your life path.
For many people, as the energies are applied and played with in their life experiences, it can have a deeply internal, calming effect.
Some people feel that they're truly being "seen" for the first time in their life!
Others may have feelings of courage in making decisions based in their Design, as well as feeling empowered to let themselves be who they really are.
Still others may feel totally validated as to how they were feeling regarding themselves, where they're heading and how they're focused in their life path.
On occasion, there are those who feel upset regarding the information in their Life Chart. In these cases, I encourage them to study their reading, release attachment to outcome, and just be and play with it and see what can happen for them. It may even be helpful to "sit it on the shelf" for awhile, and then return back and refer to it at a time in the future when they feel drawn to doing so.
During a Reading, I offer ways of physically applying your Design, as well as belief system upgrades that you can refer to whenever you may be experiencing a frustrating or upsetting day, or if you're feeling down in some way.
These belief system upgrades have the potential of drawing you up into a higher state of well-being, as well as anchoring you more firmly in the energies of your Design from a super-positive outlook.
08 - AFTER I HAVE MY HUMAN DESIGN READING, WHAT DO I DO WITH THE INFORMATION YOU GAVE ME?
I encourage you to re-listen to it as often as possible and have your Reading Notes handy on your computer devices so you can pull them up at a moment's notice if necessary.
I once heard of a man that re-listened to his reading over 50 times because he knew it would take that many times of re-listening to the new information before his brain actually began to fully take in and apply the information at a deeper level. Since the human brain works this way, it brings recognition to the reason why hearing and seeing the same advertisement over and over and over works as well as it does! The information will go in at deeper and deeper levels of understanding the more you re-connect with the energy of who you are.
After your reading, you'll receive both a video and audio recording of the consultation in order to make it easier and more flexible for you to re-listen to it, as well as a complete digital pdf copy of your Reading Notes.
The more you listen to your Reading in a relaxed, open way, allowing it to "run through you" like a quiet, nurturing and gentle stream of water, the greater the impact it will have in your life.
This is the specific reason I offer the complete intensive verbal Personal Life Chart Reading in the manner in which I do, so that you have all the information in one recording, and you don't have it separated out in different pieces, making it hard to pull together. My intention is to make it easy for you to access and listen to.
I personally found all the Human Design information to be confusing when I first connected with it, and ended up feeling frustrated, and felt determined from the outset to organize the readings I offer in a way that would provide a logical walk-through, from top to bottom, of the combined and synergized energies of the Life Chart for those desiring Readings from me.
During your Reading, we persistently stick to the Reading Notes so you can refer to your Notes while you listen to and/or watch the recording of your Reading in the future if you wish to do so.
Clarity is Key!
09 - WHAT KIND OF HUMAN DESIGN READINGS DO YOU OFFER?
At this time, I offer Personal Life Chart Intensive Readings, Yearly Relationship Attraction Readings and Human Design Interactive Readings, along with Consultations that can be focused any which way you like so it applies to what you have going on in your life right now.
10 - HOW DO I KNOW WHICH HUMAN DESIGN READING TO RECEIVE FIRST? WHICH ONE DO YOU RECOMMEND I BEGIN WITH?
In my personal experience, I would suggest for you to receive the Human Design Personal Life Chart Reading first so you can receive the foundation of energies your Soul intended on experiencing while here in the Earth Plane.
This Reading will be the most impactful in the long run in your life, as you'll be able to refer to it, especially in moments that feel rough, challenging or uncomfortable, so you can get yourself attuned and re-aligned to the energy of your Design so things flow more easily in your life.
You'll be able to confidently refer to this Reading for the rest of your life, if you wish; however, the information in your Human Design Life Chart itself is meant to act much like "training wheels" do on a youngster's bicycle. It helps you get your balance, and then, once you're up and running, you can ride without the training wheels, and start to even do some fancy tricks on your bike if it makes your Heart sing to do so!
If the training wheels were never removed, we would not gain the confidence that we as humans deeply desire in our lives by fully living and serving our Divine Life Purpose and Potential.
We're designed to step out into the world and give it a good go around the block in order to feel truly satisfied about our Life Journey when all is said and done!
11 - WHAT KIND OF INFORMATION DO I RECEIVE DURING A FULL PERSONAL LIFE CHART READING?
During your Personal Life Chart Reading, we go over your Type, Strategy and Authority, and how they work together in order for you to make clear decisions in a dependable way in your life, as well as your Profile and the expression of it.
After that, we go over the energies of your Defined Channels.
The bulk of the reading is focused on the body graph itself, by moving through each of the Centers and the way they behave according to your Design, along with the Gates you have activated on each Center, and the way that these energies can show up for you in your life.
As mentioned above, your Reading is recorded via Zoom online conferencing, so you'll receive a video and audio recording of your readings afterwards, along with a pdf copy of your Reading Notes so you can refer to them far into the future if you wish.
12 - I NOTICE MY INCARNATION THEME IS SHOWN AT THE TOP OF MY HUMAN DESIGN MANDALA. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR ME?
Your incarnation Theme, or, Life Theme, is the overlighting energy you experience in your lifetime.
It flavors everything you experience and explore, as well as your personal perspective that you carry and the kind of interactions you have with others in your life.
13 - I DON'T LIKE MY INCARNATION THEME -- IT SOUNDS TERRIBLE! CAN YOU HELP ME WITH THAT?
First of all, this it totally understandable!
I'm going to agree with you that many of the names of the Incarnation/Life Themes definitely do not sound delightful.
The names are what they are due to archetypal energies, some of which are drawn from association with the blended stories of the Conscious Sun, Conscious Earth, Unconscious Sun and Unconscious Earth Gate Activiations in your Human Design Life Chart.
The titles are most definitely not to be take personally. They're only meant for an energetic reference.
To be real, some of the Life Themes can be and feel challenging in a person's life.
This is why it's super valuable to receive a complete Human Design Personal Life Chart Reading, so you will receive a more complete picture of the expressions of your Life Chart as a whole, and options for focusing with it in a positive way.
Taking only portions of the Life Chart, and looking only at that part, could be likened to the story of the blind men who were asked to say what an elephant is, when one man was examining the elephant's truck, another the foot, another the tail and the other one at the elephant's ear. Each individual offered a different story about what an elephant truly is!
Your Life Chart is most helpful when brought into a cohesive whole.
When I offer readings, I focus on moving you up to the next highest level by focusing on the positive path, regardless of the Line Expressions or Life Theme, etc., and include actionable ways for you to do this via the information offered throughout your Reading.
