Virgo ☀︎ Scorpio ☽ Aquarius ⇧
Hi, I'm Sarah, a New England transplant who's called Texas home for the last two decades. I currently reside in Dallas and when I'm not busy googling celebrity charts or posting memes, I enjoy cooking, traveling, photography, and contemplating why I continue to watch The Bachelor.
My Journey with Human Design
I’ve always been compelled to understand people and where they are coming from. What motivates us, what intentions are behind our actions, what fears and anxieties are dictating certain behaviors? So naturally I was drawn to subjects like astrology and psychology from a young age. I found it comforting to know I was a Virgo and an INFJ because I felt seen and it gave me a group to identify with. And it helped me make sense of other people around me and why they were different from me. This is a desire we all share collectively. To be seen, to make sense of ourselves and others, to feel like you belong. I mean, who hasn’t been tempted to take one of those quizzes to find out “Which type of cheese are you?”
Though it wasn’t until I "randomly" discovered Human Design during my 2020 quarantine, that I had this huge aha! moment that I didn’t even know I was so desperately seeking. I pulled up my chart and as I began to comprehend it, never had I ever felt so seen and recognized in my entire life. Suddenly everything was crystal clear. Things I had long believed to be flaws, areas I needed to work on or aspects of my personality I had rejected about myself, I now understood were actually my superpower. And the way it was suggesting I live, work and achieve success actually sounded easy and exciting to me! All the big challenges I’d faced in my life, impulses I’d always had, it was all laid out and explained right there in my Human Design chart. I realized that the dissatisfaction and bitterness I felt in my life actually stemmed from me trying to be someone I wasn’t. Trying to live up to other people’s expectations and ideals. And most of all, ignoring what felt good and natural to me. For someone who considers themself to be pretty self-aware and autonomous, I was shocked at how far off I was from living authentically.
We live in a society that believes there is just one right way to achieve success and happiness. This is what’s known as Conditioning. These layers of expectations, pressures, and fears are put on us from the time we are born. Wake up early, hit the gym, work hard, stay late, take initiative, make sacrifices, be assertive, be aggressive, speak up, just do it, sell yourself, go out there and make it happen! Some of these things might be aligned for you, but for many they are not. Yet we are all spinning our wheels trying to strive for unreachable ideals while ignoring who we really are, getting further away from what we really want. And it’s only causing us burn out and depression.
Wouldn't it be so much nicer if you could just let all of that go and be who you really want to be and do what you really want to do? Not only is this your key to discovering your purpose and living the life of your dreams, but it's also the easiest and most aligned way for you to do it. It really is that simple, however simple isn't always easy. Human Design aims to de-condition us, to show us who we really are, so we can discover our true purpose, thrive and succeed, and live freely as our authentic selves. However, de-conditioning can be painful. It can challenge beliefs that we’ve held for a long time. It can be scary to take steps that no one around us understands. But the rewards are worth it and you will experience so much more ease in life and less resistance.
Like Albert Einstein said, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.” Human Design has helped me cultivate and deepen my self-awareness, self-acceptance, and even more importantly, self-love. It's guided me back to my authentic self and freed me from what wasn't me.
And now I want to share this life-changing gift with you.
