Human Design

I’m a 5/2 Splenic Projector. 

I make Human Design simple, practical, and magical. 

Where to start with your Human Design (nope, it isn’t your strategy and authority!)

If you aren’t sure where to start to make changes in your life based on your Human Design, today is your lucky day:

Start literally anywhere that feels easy.

Even if that isn’t your strategy and authority.

My first ever Human Design experiment was related to my 5/2 profile. The 5/2 aura is in what is called the “double projection field.”

This essentially means that my karmic role is be the person that:

  • people project their hopes, dreams, desires, expectations, and needs for a savior onto (the 5)
  • people project their ideas about how I should use/share my natural gifts and talents in the world (the 2)
  • doesn’t make decisions based on others projections and instead, stays true to my inner knowing about what I can and cannot do…

I started my Human Design experiment by beginning to make the assumption that anything anyone ever said about me (whether to me or not) was their own projections rather than a “truth” about me.

Because I had been doing shadow integration work for over a decade, I was already deeply familiar with the concept of psychological projection. I understood that, as humans, we all project our unconscious shit onto others.

So, beginning to make that assumption was a not huge leap.

I didn’t have to burn my whole life down. Or blow out my nervous system by trying to go too hard too fast. Or push against the existing flow of my life.

But, it was one tiny I step I could take immediately with no inner drama at all.

And it changed EVERYTHING. Almost instantly.

I started to see so fucking clearly how much energy I was wasting every single day by making other people’s bullshit expectations my problem. And, how often I was doing things just because other people told me I was good at it.

At that point, the ball was rolling and I started to naturally develop the capacity for bigger changes. Things that seemed impossible at first became doable.

That doesn’t mean I haven’t made changes that felt uncomfortable or like I was “blocked” around them. Lord knows I have.

But it’s because I built the capacity for it, first. I didn’t give into the pressure to only start where all the so called experts said to. And I trusted myself to know what was right for me.

Because the truth is that all roads really do lead to Rome.

The rivers are different but the water is the same.

One tiny spark can lead to a rip roaring alchemical fire.

Your soul is *always* on the right track.

You cannot do it wrong.

Trust yourself. Start where you are. Make one teeny-tiny change today and a year from now, you will be amazed at how far that one simple change took you.


This “start where you are” approach is the method I teach all of my Human Design Map clients. Start with the “low hanging fruit” and keep doing that. And, once you start running into your “blocks”, that is where the deconditioning portal comes in. You’ll be guided through “the inner work” for the changes you know you need to make but don’t feel easy. Get started here.
