Human Design is a system and a tool for self-awareness and personal development that combines elements of astrology, genetics, quantum physics, and spirituality. In fact, some might say it’s somewhat similar to an astrological birth chart, as it also uses your place, time, and date of birth to calculate your design.
It was developed by Ra Uru Hu (Robert Allan Krakower) in 1987, who claimed to have received a revelation on the island of Ibiza, Spain, which led to the development of this system. During this experience, he stated that he received information from an inner voice or “voice of truth” that provided him with the foundations of the Human Design system. From this revelation, Ra Uru Hu spent several years developing and refining the Human Design system. He integrated ideas and concepts from various disciplines, including astrology, genetics, quantum physics, and spirituality, to create a coherent system that helps people understand their nature and purpose in life.
Ra Uru Hu began teaching Human Design to a group of students and began spreading his ideas through seminars and workshops worldwide. As the system gained popularity, communities of practitioners and interested students formed, looking to apply its principles in their lives. Over time, various schools and organizations have been established that offer training and certification in Human Design. These programs allow practitioners to become Human Design consultants and work with individuals and groups to help them understand and apply the principles of the system.
Interestingly, Human Design is still used today in psychology consultations, coaching, and workplace settings. By knowing your Human Design, you’ll understand with whom you need to work to complement your strengths, and you can continue cultivating your strengths. Ultimately, it’s about combining all types of Human Designs within a team to create an almost perfect puzzle!
Human Design is based on the idea that each person has a unique “design chart” that describes their innate nature and potential. This chart is created from a person’s date, time, and place of birth.
