Human Design gives you a genetic blueprint of who you are. Many people have asked me why we will need to have our Human Style graphs done. They tell me that they know themselves very well, they tell me that they do not wish to be restricted by anything, it is exactly like reading your horoscope -that do not pay much attention to this; they do not have any need to know etc.
There are numerous reasons why we ought to know who we are and in fact not one of us really knows because we see ourselves from one standpoint and others see us otherwise. Human Style gives us both viewpoints. Additionally, it gives us the facts. We can understand and get to know ourselves as we grow and mature but we will never know what our true self.
With Human Design we know that we are so conditioned to live in a socially acceptable way, it is very important to fit in, have friends, be considerate, not excite, and some of these behaviour patterns are simply not that we are. There are people whose lives revolve completely around them; in Individual Design conditions this is normal, they are individuals – those people have a goal here to be unique and to show others it is okay to be different. They are not afraid to dive into the chasm.
Conditioned behaviour prevents us from being ourselves; we accommodate our human design behaviour as we develop according to answers we get. If a child is always being scolded for acting as a child normally does with questions and curiosity, then that child learns to accommodate that behaviour to match the adult. That child then becomes a passive aggressive. Thus conditioning in childhood often creates dysfunctional adult behaviour that does not allow us to be ourselves.
Social behaviour likes to remain the same. It is secure when we know how to Behave properly; individual kinds of individuals show us it is acceptable, if odd, to differ. Humans possess a genetic imperative to change that is exactly what our genes do. They bring two people together to have kids so the genes can combine and mutate. That is the reason our society today is quite different from when we grew up.
As adults these routines no longer serve us they just stop us from living our goal and keep us asleep. Our body then takes on the task of keeping us safe and resides in a state of active awake at which the nervous system is continually in sympathetic mode. This inhibits the body functions of the parasympathetic nervous system like digestion and breathing.
