Human Design Types Sleep Needs

THE NOT-SELF

Piggybacking off the last post that was a video of a speech from Ra, I decided to reflect deeper. Human Design is predicated around trusting the intelligence of your body, primarily through feeling, as opposed to the intelligence of your Mind. We “think” that if we become more intelligent, more strategic, that we can mitigate or avoid life’s unexpected circumstances. I am writing this not only to the public but also to myself as my own reminder that despite “knowing” Human Design at a deep level, it means nothing if you don’t experiment practically with what you know. Knowledge is not power. We can easily get caught up in the issues of the world that often polarize us to one extreme. That then inhibits our ability to see the duality that life really is. We are conditioned by the world through media platforms and there is a reason why they are called “TV programs”. The vast majority of humanity are the not-Self but this is how civilization was built and will never change. People generally are homogenized like sheep just following external noise rather than listening to what your body’s intelligence on the inside has to say. Noise distracts us and moves us away from our natural intelligence to correctly make decisions in the present moment. Remember this is the body’s life, not the mind’s life. Now roughly 50% of people have a defined Ajna center that functions in our subjective or objective conceptualization of thought, representing the function of the Mind. Definition means a recognizable consistency of thoughtful expression but not necessarily correctness. When you are mentally driven, this can often become the “verbal gunslinger” the one who initiates conversations, being overly opinionated for example and then you can often meet resistance. The Mind has 6 channels that are all projected meaning that we need to be invited to express through these life-forces. In following this strategy, then the conversation flows fluently between 2 people as opposed to meeting resistance where the other can “switch off” to what you are saying. This can create an uncomfortableness between both parties. Think of the person who says nothing, there is an increased curiosity of what their thoughts are as opposed to the one that sounds like a broken record and there is decreased interest by others in what they have to say. On the contrary, the open Ajna with its inconsistency of thought can be influenced by the other. Their mental system can be “hijacked”. These people can “pretend to be certain” formulating opinions and beliefs around something they have not experienced for themselves. Either way, the Mind is in charge, it wants control, it wants certainty and it wants to plan in a life that is unexpected. It is then making choices around what you should do based on conventionalism, based on normality all to try and keep the peace and harmony.  These are choices that polarize you and are often made from a basis of fear. This is why, in either scenario, the Ajna becomes the spokesperson for the not-Self or why the Mind can never be trusted in making decisions in your life.
