March 8, 2017 - Usually I add my updates at the bottom of these blogs however this time the following quote of Ra deserves to be right on top!:
"Human Design offers a mechanical understanding of the nature of being. With understanding comes a genuine revolution, the realignment of a life and the awakening of awareness. Human Design offers a methodology uniquely tailored to your design that liberates you from 'not-self’ conditioning (and the accompanying conflicts, pains and sufferings that is inevitably part of that identification). It is called Strategy & Authority and it is the catalyst of transformation. Most important to recognize is that this is knowledge to be experimented with. There is a ‘way' but it can only be your way. Allow this work to guide and inform you and then, if it is correct for you, enter into the most extraordinary journey of your life. Ra Uru Hu Ibiza, Spain March 1, 2011
I have seen others skepticism expressed on different sites and from now on when I do see them (and especially the most caustic ones) I intend to respond (from my Defined Sacral Center) possibly with the above quote (or at least my paraphrase). I've seen what appears to be accusations of a cult of HDS. How does a "cult" form when there is a continuous and free invitation to enter into your own true authentic being? To these naysayers I say: show me the coercion here! Show me the threat, the duress! Where is the usurpation! Everything these naysayers say is all about them! (See the second of The Four Agreements.)

"Human Design is such a gorgeous tool for awakening." However - "Unless Human Design is used for awakening from within, it can be a very potent belief system, where you impose upon yourself things you may not understand fully or well. ... Question everything. If you go back to the individual elements of the synthesis, a completely different possibility exists for how to see the chart as the pathway to awakening into your own understanding of the mechanism that is your life." ~ Zeno
A Human Design reading needs to be "interactive." My "readings" of another's Human Design works best when I have made a connection with the individual and can dialogue with them. I feel I need at least some direct knowledge of the individual to share the particular "mechanics" of their Human Design with them in a way that they can readily relate to in their life either according to what they already know as true for them or according to the life challenges they are struggling with learning. There has to be a shared reality with each individual or it is just a "belief" and that is most certainly not what the Human Design System (HDS) came here for. Sharing the HDS is much like any genuine communication process that has understanding as its objective.
Back to "the beginning":
1/4/2016 With Mercury about to go Retrograde there's not a moment for me to delay posting this.
I'm inspired to create mini "sound and light" presentations on the Human Design BodyGraphs of individuals. My vision is to create individualized charts by hand that are large enough to use as display charts for presentations that I will video-tape for each individual. These Human Design BodyGraphs would also include the corresponding Gene Keys. Most charts would also include description of Channel Definitions.
It is my intention to use mercury retrograde as the time for my research on the particular approach that I will take for the graphic production of these individualized charts. I have thought of silk-screen printing the outlines of the basic BodyGraph and then filling in the rest of the individualized Design by hand. However I think there is a better way for doing the "outlines".
January 9th, 2016 -
I've begun having my initial Human Design introductions to individuals start with a presentation on the Chakras.
"Unlike the traditional Chakra system of the ancient Hindus, Human Design is composed of nine centers. The (Hindus) seven Chakra system was based upon a seven planet solar system. This system was accurate for its time, as humanity had only evolved to the development level of the seven centered being. Humans ... continue to evolve. Our last evolutionary shift occurred in 1781, when we evolved from a seven centered being to a nine centered being. This evolutionary shift corresponded to the discovery of Uranus..."

("Day after day alone on the hill")
The G-centre, (AKA The Self Center)
the ground of being in form,
the location of eight basic hexagrams,
archetypes of man.
These eight hexagram gates and their corresponding Gene Keys all deserve to be familiarized.

Just got a reply from a local energetic healer who wrote: "... I have had my HD done in the past and I believe it is one of the most accurate 'manuals' for our own energy makeup".
Dale Carnegie wrote:
"... even in such technical lines as engineering,
about 15 percent of one's financial success is due to one’s technical knowledge and about 85 percent is due to skill in human engineering-to personality and the ability to lead people."
"Human engineering-to personality"; have you heard that phrase before? (Just got 2,360 results in a Google search with that phrase!) There is an aspect of Human Design that relates to human engineering-to personality, however it's more like "reverse engineering" as it undoes the "human engineering" of societal conditioning as the individual naturally lives as their authentic self in harmony with their own Design!
April 16th -
The Undefined Throat Center -
According to Lynda Bunnell - "The not-self theme of the undefined Throat Center is ‘Trying to attract attention’. People with undefined Throat Centers are afraid they won’t be noticed, so their not-self mind jumps at any chance to think up ways to attract attention. They can easily succumb to undefined pressure to talk, to act, to make an impression, to interrupt, ... They don’t realize that open Throat naturally attracts attention, and if they wait, invitations to speak will come to them. In this way, they will receive the proper attention, at the most opportune time, with no need to waste precious energy doing something to move the process along. ...
When around others with a defined Throat Center, they may feel uncomfortable and end up doing most of the talking to relieve the pressure. ..."
If these individuals give into the pressure then what they say will be unpredictable and likely not well received by others. "When they allow their mind to dictate how and when to attract attention and when to talk, they are not operating correctly according to their (Design). Their ability to ... communicate correctly is then deeply affected."
I know an individual with undefined Throat Center who over the course of about a year and a half has consistently demonstrated the consequences of "the not-self theme" listed above. I feel compassion for this individual! They have their personality Mars activated at Gate 8 at the second line of "Service" and a Design "To Do" however the ability to manage their anger is "deeply affected" and consequently it spoils the "service". It is unfortunate!

"The BodyGraph is made up of these sixty-four gates, which are connected through channels that are rooted in the Tree of Life design of the ancient Kabala. The circuitry map of gates and channels connect the nine centers which are derived from the Hindu-Brahmin Chakra system. These elements creates a quantum field, one in which the Rave Mandala reveals a unified view of the individual that could not be reached by any one element of this synthesis. It is the quantum of the mechanics itself that allows anyone to see their genetic highlighting, the map of their uniqueness."
Inspired by Kim of Love Your Design to search Mercury. "Mercury symbolizes your ability to connect with your soul or your Higher Self" My Personality Mercury is at Crown Gate 64 Line 5. Design Mercury is G 15.4.

A friend has his G-7 activated by Design Earth at Line 5. I also have this Gate with Design Pluto and Design Venus and therefore have a personal interest in continuing my understanding of it. For these two reasons I am reading a lecture by Ra.
"...The Alpha says, 'This is the way to go,' and it means that every logical gate carries within it this quality. This quality of 'this is the way to go.' And because it is shared, because that is the inherent quality of it, and because logic is argumentative, understand that; it is deeply argumentative. ... That is, argument can be also expressed as discussion, however we want to put it. ...
But it is something to understand about what happens to logic. The moment logic says, 'This is the way,' somebody logical says, 'Are you sure?' There is nothing sadder than a king without his people, if you know what I mean. The Alpha is noth- ing without its ability to be able to influence the other, which means that The Alpha in its understanding of the pattern cannot simply benefit from the pattern alone; it's pointless.
In order for them to be able to fulfill what is their role they need to get others to follow the pattern. And in order to do that they're going to have to deal with the basic thematic of logic, which is to debate. You see that in the buildup to political elections in democracies where you have this debating that takes place. This is classic logic, two Alphas trying to influence you in terms of which one will provide you with a better future. ...
In any kind of understanding of this role it is really leading you to appreciate something that logic brings to us that is very profound. It brings an insistence on our ability to be able to express ourselves and to be able to express ourselves well to the other. When you're looking at the logic system, because of the 62nd (Throat) gate, you see that within logic in order to be able to express the diversity of patterns that language, words, had to be added. That language had to be expanded, vocabulary had to be expanded in order to be able to express all the possibilities of the pattern.
It's one of the great gifts that we have as beings. And it is something to see very clearly about what The Alpha brings is that the assumption with an Alpha, because the word has many meanings, the assumption about The Alpha is that this is, like the 1st line of the 7, just a pure authoritarian force, but it's not. ... And its ability to be effective as an Alpha is going to be conditioned on its verbal ability to be able to influence others. And that verbal ability to be able to influence means it has to be able to defend its pattern positions. And of course, with this comes the development of logical linguistic skills, skills for debate, skills for argumentation, and skills for presenting your positions, on and on .... But what we’re getting out of that is something very special. Logic brings us a tremendous advan- tage in the development of our communicative skills."

My "community" and "High Ideals" advocacy has been calling for "Vision Statements" from both individuals and groups. Recent reading of Bob Proctor's article on "Purpose, Vision and Goals" informed me of the importance of knowing one's Life Purpose. Knowing that a friend has apparently been struggling with writing his Vision Statement I took to Bob's statement that: "When you have the right purpose, you'll easily develop the right vision."
Our Life Purpose is designed into our Self Center aka "G" or "Ji" Center -
"... The Self Center relates to giving us direction, purpose and the sense of connectedness with our reality here on Earth. The Self Center also gives us connection to our sense of Love through the incarnation called 'The Vessel of Love’.”
Plus: "Your incarnation cross gives definition and foundation to your overall energy design and is a cornerstone in your life purpose."
I'd work with both a complete understanding of one's Self Center as well as their Incarnation Cross as foundational reference and then build on that as needed, especially including the Sabian Symbols for each degree of the Gate/Hexagrams.
In my Human Design BodyGraph my Incarnation Cross is completely located within my Self Center.
Our uniqueness includes our unique mode of thinking and conceptualizing. The first layer indication of uniqueness is whether the Head/Crown Center and the Ajna Center are defined or not.
November 25, 2016 -
The uniqueness of your Human Design is manifest through your aura, an energy field that encompasses your whole being. "The more resonant your aura becomes with the earth’s natural frequencies, the wider your aura spreads, bringing you into contact with many of the hidden realities and kingdoms within nature. Eventually, as the frequency of your aura comes into perfect resonance it interlocks with the earth grid itself and your consciousness expands exponentially, becoming one with Gaia and all creatures." Therefor - the process of realizing our oneness with humanity and all creatures is a matter of our resonance with Gaia.
December 16, 2016 - Regarding the new Gene Keys Society
"Noting that Chinese New Year is Saturday 28 January, some of us wondered if the Gene Keys transmission might be aiming to return itself to ‘source’? Invited to comment about website timing, Richard Rudd said:
'The new Gene Keys global re-launch seems to be aiming itself towards the end of January, which is an auspicious time. The sun enters the 41st Gene Key each year towards the end of January. This Gene Key represents the Start Codon in our DNA, which is the beginning of every new string of genetic code. The symbolism of this moment is therefore potent and real and it is a natural time for new projects to be born. If you have New Year’s resolutions, it’s best to make them at the end of January rather than at the beginning!'”
December 20, 2016 -
Even with the Human Design System plus the Gene Keys "... it (still) takes years to know another, truly, deeply ... Human Design can be a tool to help us understand people, but is mostly and most importantly a system to help you navigate your interaction style and decision-making in the world." "
31st - 2:50 AM PST
I'm predicting that I'll discover that Robert Heinlein's Human Design BodyGraph has a Defined Sacral Center.
3:14 AM - I don't yet have a verified time of birth however the day he was born may give him:
"The Left Angle Cross of Individualism" -
39 (The Provocateur) 38 (The Fighter) 51 (Shock) 57 (Intuitive Insight)
You are here to be an individual. The energies in your Cross are all individual in nature. This is not about being social or in community. Not that you can't, but ultimately you are here to march to your own drummer. This is a valuable contribution to society as it gives us a chance to view your expression and adopt parts of it if we are inspired to. However it can annoy others who are more community-minded, as it is vastly different from what they accept, so it may be provoking. That provocation is ultimately what leads to change.

"... the only stable thing for an undefined self center is nature.
The sea is the best, seating under a tree or walking in the forest is soothing."
A friend with an Undefined Self Center leaves the city as often as he can on the weekends to hang out in nature. Another friend also with " " " leaves the city on the weekends and stays in a second home across from a hot springs. I'm noting this especially to keep this in mind when I introduce people to their Human Design.
January 7, 2016 -
Just commented at the Thrive site:
And according to the Human Design System the evolutionary change (that started as a central topic here) will begin to occur genetically within the next decade. The preparation for the genetic mutation is in understanding our nine-centered 'mechanics' and especially that of the young people who will be the parents of the children bearing 'the genetic mutation'. A most significant aspect of this preparation is de-conditioning ourselves from the societal demands that all of us were raised under. This is a seven-year process in itself. Fortunately we have the time now to de-condition and prepare the way for the new human design that humanity is genetically destined for!"

I'm finding considerable validation and a lot of enjoyment from my intuitive connection with the Human Design System! I'm noting this now after just having confirmed my intuitive hunch on two particulars in an individual's BodyGraph. After hearing the individual express their upset feelings about other people's behavior I suspected that they had their Self Center Gate 10 activated and sure enough they have Gate 10 activated and by their Personality Earth! I also had previously made note regarding their Heart Center, suspecting that it wasn't defined and once again verified that it is Undefined! I've verified my hunches a number of times now and the more I do the more grateful I am to be all the more connected with the Human Design of others!

"...In the first few days after conception, the Throat Center is the energetic foundation for the fetus, and ultimately affects the formation and operation of all the other Centers, throughout the body’s lifetime."
A Psychic friend asked me how I was doing (my Design truly does a lot better with questions that require a "yes/no" answer) and although I sincerely was open to receiving that as my self-inquiry contemplation however before I could get to contemplating - he told me what he saw. He said he saw a "village" in my throat. I found that remarkable in light of the fact that I had just blogged about the Throat Center (posted immediately above). In addition I am seeing my "High Ideal": Cheeta Village vision possibly have some "expression" through a site that my friend has recently moved onto. In fact just this past day he let me know he'd welcome some of my compost.
Now I have new insight that might be meaningful only to me yet I find it noteworthy for my public journal:
I Am Living in 'The Village' that's in my Throat Center!
My Psychic friend said the village was dark (as in the night) and that we could bring in more light. I immediately agreed! In fact I've already begun to expand my light into this village.:
I Am Light in 'The Village' that's in my Throat Center!
I Am Love in 'The Village' that's in my Throat Center!
I Am Warmth in 'The Village' that's in my Throat Center!
I Am Joy in 'The Village' that's in my Throat Center!

Since I included a reference to the "Not Self" earlier (above here) I now can add an explanation of what this pertains to:
“The Not-Self is a collection of adaptive strategies the mind uses to try and convince us to do what it thinks you should do, rather than what is in alignment with your authentic nature. Conditioning results in us making decisions from the openness in our (Human Design) charts, which is inconsistent and can cause problems leading to further adaptive strategies.
Once you begin to grasp the information within your own Human Design you come to realize the power of your mind and how heavily your decisions have been influenced by your conditioning.” -
An Introduction to Discovering Your Self * The 5 Steps to Transformation
(Available at JovianAchive.com)
The "Not Self" can be thought of as a kind of "mind game" that is not in your best interest and that you would be better off not playing. However the only way I know of out of that "game" is to follow your Human Design "mechanics" just as it is revealed in your BodyGraph. My BodyGraph shows that I have a Defined Solar Plexus Center which makes me an emotional being. (Knowing this one part of my Design has been such a relief for me as up until I saw this I had been resisting and resenting my own "mechanics" and essentially punishing myself with my own self judgement for generating such intense emotions.) Now I know that my way "out of the mind game" is to wait for my emotional clarity before making any decisions that are of any importance to me.

I value maturity! I accept that maturity is an "organic" process that nay not be predictable for any individual. In my case all the early childhood conditioning by my parents to be my father's "little man" did not add anything to genuine maturity and on the contrary I see all that conditioning as an obstacle to maturity. In any case the parenting of about two generations ago was inherited from a long-standing model based on the seven-centered being even though:
"... The 1781 Uranian body is a different package. ... it has an 84-year cycle. ... And if you're looking at it in relationship to the seven-centered being and the way it lived its life, the seven- centered being reached its half point in life at (age) 15. That was maturity. Think about that. And the nine-centered being? Well, somewhere around 40, the Uranus Opposition. Because Uranus has unusual movement, it's between 38 and 44 years old. That's the beginning of maturity in the nine-centered being."
I checked the transits for "the Uranus Opposition" in my astrology and it occurred at 40 1/4 years.

"The moment that you begin to trust in the nature of your vehicle is the moment that you can begin to be secure in this life regardless of what your design is, regardless of what your configurations are, because the moment you're operating out of your Strategy and Authority you're tapping into deep cognitive resources within you that know how to guide you on this plane, know how to eliminate the resistance to keep you healthy, to bring you into contact with the right forces."

It is easy (IMO) to get access to your Human Design information. It is another thing to enter into the great experiment! I have shared introductory Human Design information with a certain number of people now to the point where I feel my function as a mentor rising above just the information. I appreciate what Ra has said in this regards:
Human Design is "not something that you dabble with. You either do it or you don't. You either experiment with it and you find out for yourself or walk away and live in your homogenized life. But don't fool yourself that because you're learning and because you're taking in information about Human Design that this is actually making the difference for you. It is not. So many people search for the truth and avoid it at the same time. The truth is in you. ... It's in you. It's your truth that has to emerge, not somebody else's. Not somebody else's authority, not my authority that says you do this. It's you. You either experiment or you don't, but that's what it's about, nothing else, and then once you're in that process then we can talk."

HDS presents a comprehensive "update" of the 7-chakra system by showing that the human vehicle has evolved from a seven-centered to a nine-centered form. This evolution of our form requires a transition in how we navigate our life as nine-centered beings. The challenge in this transition now is that the predominant systems of the world were established for 7-centered beings. Consequently "we have a problem", especially in the Western world, in how we approach living in relation to our evolved vehicle's nine-centered form within a world on a course that was created for seven-centered beings.
The contribution that the HDS perspective could make in an individual's life and well-being can be truly awesome since only about 37% of people have what Human Design identifies as a Defined Heart Center. In HDS the physical heart is included within the Heart Center and also includes the Ego, the Will and one's orientation to the material world. This means that close to 67% of the world's population is vulnerable to the conditioning influences by way of the typical demands for will-power - at least in the work world - and these individuals are therefore most likely subject to exhausting their Heart Center's energy in their continued attempt to prove themselves. People without the consistent reliable definition of their Heart Center are not designed to be exerting their will forces in the ways that the world demands for their will-power. Consequently the overextending of the Heart Center's Will and Ego forces has a weakening impact on the form's biological well-being and that in turn effects specific organs connected to the four Human Design Gates of the Heart Center. The gate most pertinent to our "problem" is Heart Center Gate 21 - associated with the physical heart.
Just in case you haven't heard - the leading cause of death is heart disease. When the physical heart is seen from a more all-encompassing perspective of mind/emotions/will-body/organ (as a number of practitioners have been discovering and telling us) as well as how external conditioning impacts us then given the present state of how we live in tremendous conflict is it any wonder that the number one disease shows up right in the heart?
March 11, 2017 - It's About Communication!
"To live in the Maya ("illusion") is to live in a unique mental reality, where language seems to be the only civilized tool for bridging the bubbles of consciousness in which we live. Nothing is more constraining than feeling mentally imprisoned within your own body. That is why communication is the most effective medicine for the human soul.
"Tell me something that is on your heart" - has been one of the dyads that I've applied in private sessions as a mentor and have seen a lot of value in activating over the years.

The Sun is transiting the Hexagram Lines through Gate 25 and on Wednesday the 22nd enters Line 5 (description following):
Gate of the Spirit of the Self
The Spiritual Warrior
The perfection of action through uncontrived and spontaneous nature. To love everything equally. Triumph and survival enrich the spirit and result in the wonder of being.
Left Angle Cross of Healing
Godhead - Michael
Line 5 - Recuperation
When innocence is sapped of its vitality, healing is the first priority.
Exaltation: The ability to recognize the inner meaning of an affliction and to withdraw until it is healed. The power of the spirit to heal and be healed.
Detriment: Hypochondria and the need to be healed by others. The weakness of the spirit which requires healing from others."

“We are just coming to the end of the Piscean Age and entering the Aquarian Age. As we move through the long period of transition between these ages (a period possibly lasting some two or three hundred years), we begin to leave the age which has encompassed two thousand years of Christianity - ironically, perhaps, a dark time characterized by much suffering - to move toward the dawning of a new era, where hopefully, a more equal and humane society will begin to manifest. Neptune rules Pisces, and Uranus is now the accepted ruler of Aquarius; therefore we should … use these two planets in unity. Neptune (the mystical) works in harmony with Uranus (the awakener) as the higher aspects of love work in unison with human brotherhood and the Universal Mind - linking the old Piscean Age to the new Age of Aquarius. Within the individual personality, this could manifest as a uniting of Soul and Mind.”
The Human Design System shows us the transitional nature of our nine-centeredness as it is based on the genetic (microcosm) level and which lasts the better part of two hundred and fifty years (comparable to the transitional period between the Ages mentioned above) and with the "transition" between the Ages our transition as a species has it’s correspondence on the macrocosm level!

Another term for the "not-self" is "no-self":
"If there ever was an historical era where getting past the passive no-self phase of awakening mattered, this is it."

Also: "There is no purer alchemy than simply being yourself" -
"... what is all this really about and what do these charts tell us? In a single statement: they remind us of what we already know about ourselves, deep within our hearts. Human Design is in essence a yin teaching. It shows us that human beings are primarily receptive by design. Our prime directive, if we have such a thing, is patience. Buddha used a term known as ‘correct action’, and this is what we manifest when we live our true nature or design. Action that does not come from harmony is desperate action, and usually does more damage than good in the world. Human Design shows us that there is no purer alchemy than simply being yourself. On a deeper level, it is a simple means of harmonising our individual flow within a greater flow. It is about what the ancients called ‘being in harmony with the Tao’.":
