Basic Human Design Reading

A basic reading covers your Human Design Type and Strategy, your unique energy and decision making strategy. There are five energy Types in Human Design, each with their own strategy for creating and living. Understanding your Type and Strategy is the most important thing to know about your Human Design.


“Thank you so much for introducing me to ‘human design.’ Learning about the design of my life and my family’s lives was one of the best investments of time and money that I have ever made. I am now a more confident, informed business-woman, as well as a better parent. For years I have lived the life that I was “programmed” to live by society. Now I live the life that God intended.”

–K.H., North Carolina

A basic reading also helps you discover how you process energy. There are nine energy Centers in Human Design. Each Center is responsible for processing different kinds of energy.


Energy Centers that are colored in on your chart are energies that you have consistently and are for you to share with the world. Energy Centers that are white on your chart indicate energies that you take in from the people and the world around you. It is in these white Centers that we sometimes carry confusion and pain.

These “open” energy Centers create very specific patterns and habitual behaviors in us. Oftentimes, if you feel “blocked” or “stuck” in your life, understanding these open energy patterns can help you change your behavior to help you create different outcomes in your life.

For example, if you have the Solar Plexus Energy Center “open” on your chart, you may find that you are very sensitive to other people’s emotional energy. You might even consider yourself to be empathic (BTW, this is NOT the only place in the chart where you can experience empathy…).

People with the Solar Plexus Energy Center “open” will often have a lifelong pattern of avoiding “unpleasant truths” and conflict. They can be “pleasers” and can often take responsibility for trying to keep others happy.


When you understand your energy, it helps you break old patterns and truly live an authentic, fulfilling life as your magnificent self. A Human Design reading will help you understand all of your Energy Centers and how they work.

Your Human Design reading will also reveal to you your unique learning strategy called your Profile. (Your profile looks like a “fraction” at the bottom of your chart.) Different Profiles have different ways of learning. (Did you know that some of us are designed to “make mistakes” and that getting things “wrong” is crucial to helping us learn how to get it right?)


Your Human Design reading will reveal to you your unique Life Purpose and give you even deeper insights into your personal energy and your destiny. Your reading will give you a profound new way to see the magnificence of who you truly are.

In addition, your Human Design reading can show you your unique money-making strategy, your relationship strategy, strengths and vulnerable points in your physical health and the best ways for you to connect spiritually.

Human Design for Everyone Specialists are trained to help you use your Human Design to create breakthroughs in all areas of your life, support you in shattering old beliefs, hurts and traumas and start you on your journey to your amazing Self.

To access this Inner Authority, a Generator and Manifesting Generator sometimes need help “turning on” their Inner Authority.

A Generator Coach can help Generators and Manifesting Generators “turn on” their Inner Authority and work with them to gain clarity in their lives. These sessions are for Generators and Manifesting Generators who are just discovering their Inner Authority or for any Sacral Being who needs to respond to get clarity about a specific life situation.
