Human Design
with Christie Inge

I’m a 5/2 Splenic Projector. 

I make Human Design simple, practical, and magical. 

Profile Lines: Things you think are a problem but are actually your greatest gifts

As I’ve shared a gazillion and a half times, learning about my 5/2 Design Profile was radically healing for me. The other major parts of my design (Projector, Splenic Authority, and 57/51, 62/61 gates in my incarnation cross) were areas where I had already started to do a lot of healing.

I had already come to understand that waiting to be invited before guiding worked best. I knew that trusting my intuition was the best way to make decisions. And I was already aware of the patterns of clarity, awakening, esoteric translation, and mysticism unfolding in my life.

That isn’t to say there isn’t still deconditioning to do in those areas. There is.

But, when it comes to my 5/2 profile, that was a whole other ballgame.

Learning about the double projection field – where others “only” see me through the lens of what I can do for them, rather than for who I really am – instantly changed my perspective on my entire life.

And layer upon healing layer began to unfold.

As each new layer peels away, I feel more and more like myself. Freer to express my heretical views and able to nurture my hermit as needed. I see the twisted knots of karma falling apart before my very eyes.

It is a sight to behold.

This past week was an intense week of more layers disintegrating. Evaporating like water under the hot gaze of Fierce Grace. Dissolving like sugar as I bathed in the sacred river of emotion.

I came to understand that other people’s expectations and projections aren’t a problem.

There is no need to be afraid of them. They cannot hurt me. I don’t need to defend or protect myself from them.

They aren’t about me, after all.

Instead, they are my platform, my soapbox, my stage.

I can stand on top of them, use them to send my message out further, and alchemize them into medicine.

I will eat them for breakfast and transform them into Gold.

For them. For me. For you.

With this potent awareness, I was inspired to think about the parts of our profile that we can often make a “problem” and how, as with all things, they are actually a point of alchemy. A place where lead becomes Gold.

Things you think are a problem but are actually your greatest gifts (by Human Design Profile Lines)

First Line

Not having all the information isn’t a problem. It’s the fuel that drives the development of your expertise.

Second Line

Being unaware of your natural gifts and talents isn’t a problem. It is an opportunity to see your beauty through the eyes of others.

Third Line

Making mistakes and failing aren’t problems. They are the building blocks for unparalleled success.

Fourth Line

Your foundational beliefs and values changing aren’t a problem. They are the stepping stone to more authentic connections.

Fifth Line

The “incorrect” projections and expectations of others aren’t problems. They are the soapbox you stand on when sharing your practical solutions.

Sixth Line

Being a late bloomer isn’t a problem. It is the fertile ground for your showing others what wisdom looks like.

What are you making a problem that is actually an opportunity for alchemy?
