Welcome fellow souls to « The Human Family Crash Course Series, » a new project collaborated together by and Together we will be working on a different topic for each crash course; our second topic is focused on «Western Esotericism.» Each topic will have eight posts with posts on Mondays and Thursdays. We hope you enjoy our series and we look forward to knowing how our posts have inspired you!

The Human Design System. An emerging system of empowered self awareness. Designing is the tool of how you are on the genetic level and it provides a laser pointed insight on how your energy interacts with others and how you can live and choose authentically and what’s right for you, in love, in career, travel and all of life’s biggest decisions. 

Albert Einstein once said, “A new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move to higher levels.” 

The History and Theory of Human Design

Human Design came through the 80’s and it was channelled and received by a man who then went by the name of “Ra”. This system is a really profound tool and what Human Design practitioners say is just live your design, live the experiment, and see what happens. Human Design is basically a sign of differentiation. It says that we all are 99.9% genetically identical but what we are interested in is that 0.1% that makes us different. Human Design also has the ability to show our conditioning, how we get influenced or affected by our environment and by relationships. It offers profound insights and inexplicable wisdom in every area of our lives including the kind of career we will choose, relationships, the home environment, even talks to us about our sleep patterns and what’s healthier for that. Family relationships are probably the most important aspect of what affects our human design system. 

If we look at the history a little bit, in 1987, this is when “Ra” who was formerly an entrepreneur himself, a magazine publisher, ad executive and also a musician.He was on an island of Ibiza in Spain and he had this profound and life altering experience where he received the system through what was called the voice over a period of 8 days. There is a human design system video from Ra on youtube where he describes how intense this experience was and was excruciating even. Basically the voice shared with him this kind of cosmology for the mechanics of the universe. It was both mystical and scientific at the same time and Ra has these experiences of insomnia, confusion. Headaches and what he thought was insanity coming his way. In the years that followed, he slowly started with individuals and friends and clients and that is when he really started to see value in this system. Since its inception in 1987, we have this system of Human Design practised all over the world. In many countries there have been conferences and quite a few books written now.

    I have a very difficult time trusting someone who hears “voices” or gets revelations that are not Biblically based. Demons can too easily deceive those willing to be fooled. And the demons can appear to do good, and even quote the Bible. (See Matthew 4.)
    The fault with humans is we always try to find quick and easy answers apart from the God Who Is There, who has revealed Himself through history in Adam, Noah, Abraham, and many prophets. His greatest revelation was in Jesus, His “uniquely born son.”
    “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel—not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.” Paul to the Galatians 1:6-8
    Ra, the sun god of Egypt, was not a nice guy. Most likely he was a demon fooling the Pharoahs and priests.

      Our mind is a very fascinating thing. It regulates so much of our different experiences in life; how we perceive them and how we react to different things. Hence, you can almost say that the world actually goes on inside our minds, and not really outside, when you think about it. Even things that don’t happen in the outer world might happen in your inner world, your mind. We can day dream and think of nice things we wish for to happen, but we also quite often worry and think of worst-case-scenarios that could happen. We constantly process different impressions that we get from the people and situations around us, and even when the outer world is completely still and silent, we still so very often experience a torrent of thoughts swirling around in our heads. Does it sound familiar? We all have very busy minds and our thoughts can be very hard to regulate. When it comes to your inner voice, are you controlling it, or is it controlling you? Many of us are slaves under our thoughts and we often have quite a toxic relationship to our mind. It tells us mean and negative things way too often, which can affect both our inside and our outside world a lot.
