Welcome to a new week! Did you have a fun weekend?
My counseling friend Jessica told me about the MyHumanDesign app where you put in your name, date of birth, time of birth, and location of birth, and the app tells you all about your personality, the way you go about creating things in the world, your optimal eating environment, how you most often feel when you're not living your truth, how you feel when you are living your truth, etc.
(The app is free, but I went ahead and paid the $5.99 for a one-month subscription to get a more detailed explanation of my chart and my family's charts. You certainly don't need to pay for the subscription if you just want to use Google to get more information once you receive your results.)
When the app created my own personal Human Design chart for me, I felt so validated looking at my results, because I know that all of those things are true for me, but I have often felt like I have to explain and defend why I have certain needs and desires.
It turns out that, based on the exact date and time that you and I chose to come into our physical bodies, the energy of the sun, planets, and stars at that precise moment in time provided the exact conditions for our bodies to be hardwired the way they are.
(I don't totally understand all of that completely, but that is my own limited understanding of it so far.)
I ran Chad's chart, and although he was super skeptical, he was nodding, laughing, and saying "Shut up" when he heard the full-blown explanation of his chart.
We were both in utter amazement, especially when we ran our children's charts and found out that Kip is apparently an "Easy Breezy Genius". He has always told us that he's a genius. Turns out, he was right!
Kaylie's chart explains why she gets so emotional for no apparent reason.
This is absolutely fascinating stuff when it comes to understanding yourself and the people closest to you!
Why am I telling you this?
Because if you are like me and like so many other people who have felt wrong or broken in some way because of the way you respond to life (or the way you like things to be a certain way in order for you to function properly), then receiving your own Human Design chart may help you to feel seen, heard, and validated.
Your differences are meant to be celebrated, and you are meant to live your truth- not someone else's truth.
You are unique for a reason, and you have a very special purpose in this life.
Your purpose is to live the most joyful life possible, and knowing yourself better helps you to release all of those things that aren't you so that you can live life to the fullest- grounded in your truth.
So while I highly recommend playing with the MyHumanDesign app if that sounds like fun to you, the tool for the day is to move towards what lights you up in some way.
Those things that you love in life literally light you up from the inside out, because they move you toward your truth.
They help you to be more of you.
What the world needs right now is more people who are willing to be themselves without apology.
Are you willing to be more of you and to shine your light out into the world?
Then join me today as we move in the direction of our joy- whatever that looks like for you.
What big or little thing can you do today that will bring you joy?
I am excited about the possibilities for your life and mine, and I look forward to continuing this conversation about following your joy next time we meet!
Much love to you,
P.s. I am not an affiliate for the app so I don't make any money if you choose to subscribe to it. I just think it's so much fun that I had to share it with you!
I recently completed The Human Design Workbook by Karen Parker, and it gave me so much insight into my unique design. If you think it would be fun to dig deeper into your personality and your special gifts, you can buy the workbook here. I am an Amazon affiliate who only recommends books and personal development products that I personally own and love.
If you would like to create a life that excites and delights you, you can buy my book Celebrating Your Life here.
