This is the reflector. There’s only 1% of them. They’re not here to care about impact, they’re not here to respond to life or have an enveloping aura, they’re not here to be focused on anyone in particular. They’re here to understand the totality, because they’re the only ones who are not fixed on anything. They have a Teflon aura, you know, they sample, they sample. The theme of the reflector is disappointment, because when they start off as a child, you know everything new is different and then, you know, after a certain time you just start getting repetitions of everything. Somebody like your father or somebody like your mother, somebody like your uncle, somebody like your brother, somebody… There’s no surprise anymore. People are just normal. Everybody’s normal, you know, and because this type has a Teflon aura, you know, they do not necessarily go very deep with anyone. They do not necessarily come very close to anyone and of course if you don’t come close, you don’t start feeling the differences. So this is what this is all about for this type. They’re here to see who is different. Because you see, the one that is different, the one that breaks the rule, is normally closer to the truth. Read more

The Human Design System is the absolute of the Mechanics of the Maya. Human Design is mechanical knowledge. Everything in Human Design is mechanical and entirely dualistic. How many times have you heard this kind of sentence since you have been introduced to it? It sounds good, doesn’t it?
And yet, by the time you have completed the ‘General Training’ (Rave ABC and Rave Cartography) the mind tends to be very busy trying to remember the different parts and views into which you have learnesd to deconstruct any Rave body Graph that is laid out in front of you.
The difficulty lies in putting all the pieces back together until they form a holistic mechanical unity in movement, or, what is the same, a human being experiencing the full spectrum of diversity in life. A human being, however, that is seen from a completely demystified black and white (red) perspective, in which the homogenized personality is always being faced with helplessness and incompetence as a bottom line existential dilemma. “We are objects moving in space”, Ra Uru Hu would say.
As a matter of fact, more than a human being, what we see in the surface of the Rave Body Graph is the homogenized drama of a human personality struggling with its own form, given the Not-Self conditionings that it is operating under without any real choice. It is only once the basic mechanical laws that rule over a singular chart are clearly understood, that choices do not carry any real meaning or value in what they can contribute to the development of the unique awareness.
In any graphical representation of logic –like in any other map you can find– everything is and has to be always based on hierarchies. Logis is the way of life. Feeling is the human way. Life is always basing everything on hierarchies that are logically structured, and to us humans this seems to be the quintessential denial of justice. because it seems to close the door to the possibility that we can ever truly feel like we are all equals. It is a cruel irony that the Not-Self is always only ‘one step away’ from awakening and liberation. But, ah, what a step this is!
Because this is not a step that you can make on the outside by changing any ‘this’ for ‘that’, but it rather represents an inner leap in awareness, a mutation that transforms everything on the inside while on the outside everything remains as it has always been. This is the power that an individual reading can have, of properly delivered.
The task is to develop the skills to clearly distinguish the inconsistency of the distorted qualities that feed and shape the mental body – where the Not-Self has constructed its fortress – from the organic and reliable truths that emerge when the inner authority of the body is in charge of conducting the life through correct decision making.
It has always been said that, as a visual science, Human Design Analysis is 50% technique and 50% art and creative self-expression. Since the artistic and creative part cannot be taught – it can only be demonstrated – it is essential that the technical part is properly grounded, and the assimilation of the different formulas and their applications is complete.
For this purpose I have developed a working schedule that resumes my over 24 years of professional dedication at the time of teaching this program, both in my personal practise as an analyst as much as in the training of new professionals.
