Welcome back to the Self-Love Fix! Today, we have a very special guest rejoining us: Cynthia Davidson!
If you aren’t already familiar with her from our last episode that we did on energy release and releasing trapped emotions, Cynthia is the founder of Intuitive Essentials. She is your human design strategist and energy alchemist with a wealth of empowering tools to support you in realigning your life personally and professionally. Let’s get started!
Beatrice: Welcome back, Cynthia. I’m so excited to have you here.
Cynthia: Me too. Thank you for having me back. This has been an amazing journey, and I’m glad that we’re circling back into each other’s realm.
Beatrice: Last time you were here, we were chatting about releasing trapped emotions. We talked a little bit about trauma as well, and how we can connect those two things. And now, this week, we’re going to be talking about human design.
Beatrice: First of all, can you share with us what human design is and what it can be used for?
Cynthia: Absolutely. For me, it’s the absolute number one tool in my chest. I come back to this as a core piece of my work; reason being, it takes all of these other tools, all of these other different types of ways of looking at yourself, and it rolls them into one.
I sometimes like to call it an artsy science, because you have things like the astrology aspect on one end, but you also have the genetics and the quantum physics that go into it as well. All these things get rolled up into a ball, and that means human design goes deeper than most personality tests.
A lot of people like to go with the Enneagram or the Myers-Briggs, and those are cool, but they’re kind of like a snapshot of you in a moment. And for me, every single time I take any of them, I get a different result.
My human design actually helps me understand why that is, actually. I’m a bit of a unicorn.
I like to view human design as your user’s guide to how you’re wired at your core. It can really help you with finding your path on this journey through human existence.
Human design helps us have much more flow and much more ease in our lives. It helps us avoid taking detours or going over speed bumps or even hitting brick walls.
What I like to do with it is to help you get into the fast lane so that you don’t have to circle around and around and around. Instead, you can get that deeper understanding of yourself in order to make the better decisions for who you truly are at your core.
I find it all starts with human design. It’s just about helping you understand yourself better.
Beatrice: How do you use human design with your clients? I know you’ve got some fun different ways you implement it.
Cynthia: It’s morphed over time. In the beginning, I was still really learning my design, at the same time I was helping others understand the core pieces of theirs.
But now that I have gone so deep and I’ve embodied so many key aspects of my own human design, I’ve now been able to support people with shifting their energy in a way that’s beneficial and aligns with their design.
So with their energy type, for example, I’ve sat with people who are a Projector, but they feel like a Manifester. And if you don’t know, the energy is very different for those two types.
Once I showed them that they were actually trying to live some way that they weren’t built for, and that was part of the reason why they were stuck or felt drained sometimes, they had a better understanding of how their energy should flow, and everything fell into place.
A lot of what I’m doing now is what I call mentorship. I help them understand how they’re wired based on human designing, and we go through some real-life situations that they’re going through in that moment, whether it’s with their personal life or in their business or in their career.
I help them understand how their energy can be shifted based on what works best for them to move forward.
Beatrice: I love that human design brings awareness to what works easiest for you. It sounds so simple, but I think most people are not even consciously aware of how human design will tell you the easiest way for you to handle decision-making and manifestation.
If you knew how much your life would change from the simplest bit of human design knowledge, your mind would be blown.
Cynthia: Absolutely. When people hear these things, they always say, “That explains so much about myself.”
If we could just learn how we’re wired, how best to use our energy and get out of our own way, how to stop being something that we’re not, everything just falls into place. It all becomes so much easier. A light bulb goes on and we’re like, “Where was this all of my life?”
Beatrice: It’s like a Fast Pass. When you’re at Disneyland, you could totally wait in line, and you’ll get where you want to get eventually, but if you have that Fast Pass, you’ll get there so much quicker and easier.
That’s literally what human design feels like to me. It is getting you on the express lane.
Beatrice: So what can we debunk about human design? What is it not?
Cynthia: The past several years that I’ve been diving deep into human design, I’ve run into so many different people who use it as a hammer to tell you what you’re not supposed to do, or how you’re not supposed to do things in life, and I found that so disempowering.
It just hurts my heart, the way people limit themselves. Some people go and say, “Well, I’m a Projector, and I have to wait for invitations to come.” Well, that’s a subjective interpretation. Invitations come in many different forms.
So instead, I choose to look at human design as if there is a wealth of different ways you can use it as a tool.
It’s not prescriptive in nature. Yes, it’s there to assist you. It’s there to help you. It’s there to give you a better understanding of yourself, and then it’s up to you to choose what resonates and how you apply it.
It’s not meant to tell you what you’re not. It’s meant to tell you what you are and how life can be so much easier. I don’t think people always see it that way.
Beatrice: I like your perspective on it, especially what you said about how it’s not prescriptive in nature.
I love that, because I think that’s what happens with human design sometimes; it becomes a tool that limits them as opposed to expanding them. But it’s about who you are, not who you aren’t.
I think sometimes people will use human design and be like, because I’m a Generator, I can’t do this. because I’m a Manifester, I have to do it this way.
This is something I teach my students as well in Self-Trust Alchemy. I make sure to say it every single time we cover an aspect of human design. If you are feeling limited by it, we’ve got to rearrange how we’re looking at it, because human design is an experiment. That’s one of my favorite things about human design.
Cynthia: Yes, it absolutely is. You can’t do it wrong. If you test something and it doesn’t work for you, then it’s not meant for you, and you can move on to something else.
