Human Design Details with Jackie Johnstone

Human Design Details with Jackie Johnstone
“You get to be who you are. I get to be who I am. And I can trust that in myself and know that there are a million ways to do it because there are a million different ways that we're all designed.” - Jackie Johnstone

Skeptical of Human Design? Think it’s too woo? Certified Human Design for Business Consultant, Jackie Johnstone was too, even now, she says it could all be bullshit — but it can be useful too. If you’re looking for decision making to feel easier, to get out of your own way, check out Human Design.

When you first look at your chart, there are all these numbers and lines and shapes and colors. You want to know what they mean? And there’s more information on the side. It’s easy to get overwhelmed or get lost down a rabbit hole. We’re here to talk about how to make it something that actually helps you.

Jackie describes Human Design like an onion — you can learn and take it layer by layer. And start to implement it.

We talk about: 

  • How understanding Human Design can help teams work better together
  • Our bodies holding wisdom to help guide us to the right decision
  • The different ways we feel or sense what we want
  • Experimenting with decision making
  • Different variables that can affect how you “trust yourself”
  • Using Human Design in marketing and business decisions

    At the end of every episode, we share three doable changes, so you can take what you’ve heard and put it into action — instead of getting lost down the rabbit hole of research or learning. Change comes from action.

    Doable changes are things that you can add into your life, one at a time to make micro shifts and really create a ripple effect that will create a big change over time. Choose one that really piques your interest and roll with it.

    Here are three Doable Changes from this conversation:

    • START WITH YOUR CHART. Start by getting your chart. It may look overwhelming, but you don’t have to figure it all out at once. Pick one layer of the onion to start with, maybe your type, maybe your authority. And remember, you can focus on you — you don’t have to learn all the types or all the kinds of authority.
    • EXPERIMENT WITH DECISION MAKING. Once you know a little about your Authority, or the way you make decisions, experiment with it. Notice when you rely on logic instead of how you feel. Notice what happens when you approach decisions in different ways.
    • START WITH HOW YOU FEEL. In the FLOW system, we start with how we want to feel. We get centered so we can make decisions from a place of groundedness and starting with our inner self. Where you feel things and how might vary based on the particulars of your Human Design, but start by noticing how you feel in your body.
