The way we think about life directly impacts the reality we create and this is true no matter what our Human Design is.

When we have disempowering beliefs, we feel terrible, take ineffective action, and perpetuate our not-self themes.

But when we cultivate empowering thoughts and beliefs on purpose (sometimes called intentions), we create possibility and a deeper trust in our inner wisdom. We feel better, take more effective actions, and perpetuate our Human Design Signatures.

When we create new thoughts and beliefs based on our Human Design, it takes that power to a whole new level because they are based on who we actually are rather than who we are conditioned to be.

But, just repeating them endlessly in your mind isn’t likely to do very much.

You have to pair affirmations (aka new thoughts and beliefs) with actions that match them. This is how you actually build belief and create a life is full of potential and possibility.

Here are the steps for working with Human Design affirmations:

(or, any affirmations)

  1. Choose an affirmation based on an area that you are working to decondition in your Human Design. (I give a full set of new beliefs for your type + strategy, authority, profile, and all for gates of your incarnation cross in the Human Design Map + Deconditioning Portal.
  2. Think the affirmations, on purpose, by running the sentence through your mind and notice how it feels without attachment to it feeling a certain way.
  3. Remind yourself to think the affirmations often. Post it notes, phone reminder, etc. are all great ways to do that.
  4. As you go through your days, find evidence that the thoughts are already true, either in your life or in the lives of others.
  5. Notice when you are taking actions that align with the affirmations and when you take actions that don’t.
  6. Connect with your future self – the one who lives according to the affirmation – and pay attention to what they are doing (or not doing) on a daily basis. Be very mindful of what your future self is doing in particularly sticky or triggering situations.
  7. Make note of the “future self” actions are totally doable for you right now. As in, would not have to do much inner or outer work to start doing them TODAY.
  8. Start consistently taking those actions.
  9. Repeat.

As you do those doable future self actions, your belief will start to automatically build and your capacity for “doable right now” will expand on its own.

For any places that feel extra “sticky” and like you just can’t seem to take any actions that are aligned with your future self, that is an indicator of energy “blocks.“

(I teach you how to heal energy “blocks”, based on your design, in the Human Design Map + Deconditioning Portal.)

In those cases, I encourage you to get even “smaller” in what is doable right now. Even if it seems ridiculous and not enough, it is.

This is the work that makes outer change inevitable and it is so worth it.
