The Full Spectrum of Energy in the Human Design Chart

In the Human Design Map, I present the full spectrum of potential of your type + strategy, authority, profile and all four gates of your incarnation cross

One side may appear “positive” and the other side may appear “negative.” 

However, it is important to note that the spectrum of potential is not to be taken as a judgment or as one way being right and the other way being wrong. 

One side isn’t necessarily “better” than the other. 

It is all the same energy. It is just being channeled in different ways.

Think about water. 

Water is life-giving. We absolutely need it to live. But it can also be incredibly destructive. It can flood your house or drown you. 

Either way, it’s water. It isn’t good or bad…it just…is. 

Similarly, if your house is on fire, you want the firemen to pump as much water as possible through a firehose. 

But, if your delicate rose garden is a little droopy, you’d use a watering can. 

You wouldn’t try to stop your house from burning down with a watering can and you wouldn’t water your roses with a firehose. 

You’d match your aims with the correct method of moving the water.

All of the energy in the Human Design chart works this way. 

So, it isn’t a matter of shaming yourself for being this way or that way. You are all the ways. 

You are the firehose and the watering can. 

You are ice-cold water on a hot summer day. And the flood in the basement. 

You are the house. And the garden. And the rose. 

You are all of that. 

What matters is your: 

  • awareness of the full potential of each element in your design
  • intentions
  • skill in harnessing your energy…on purpose. 

And, most importantly, if you enjoy the results you are creating with all of this potential that lives within you.
