empowered by design

what do Human design & cake have in common?

Fabulous Question! Life & our purpose here, on earth, as consciousness in human bodies is certainly a mystery. At least to me it is. 

In my clearest moments, the mystery of life is like cake.

Well, better put, it's like the mystery of baking cakes. 

Cake is this fluffy, delectably sweet treat. Iced perfectly, the airy crumb is veiled in frosted glory, ready to spread sensations all over your tongue.  Like life, many of us take cake for granted, assuming that because we have easy access to it, it must be simple to create.

That doesn't change the fact that baking the most scrumptious cake is truly a science:
You need the right ingredients, the proper ratios of flour to liquid, and eggs to sugar. The oven must be the exact right temperature, the ingredients need to be combined correctly, right-timing is imperative, so, your patience must be well-seasoned as you wait for the cake to cool before icing it. Oh! And geography, or more specifically, the elevation of your geography matters; no one wants a flat cake. 

All of the aforementioned variables are combine into a recipe - the science - which can be replicated for an ideal cake.

You see, making & baking the perfect cake is a science. A science that, when the individual pieces are understood, can be alchemized into an absolute art form. The art form transcends the science (the recipe).

Baking cakes (from a recipe), as a science is the metaphorical equivalent to the system of Human Design. Once we implement the system and science of human design, living becomes an art form. 
How so? 
Like a great recipe, Human Design makes the mysteries of life a bit more graspable and applicable. Sort of like a recipe does for baking cakes. 

Essentially, human design equips us with an understanding of life's ingredients, timing, cycles, patterns, and how to apply the understanding of those variables to our specific cake - I mean, situation. It gives us the recipe.

What you're very likely to notice as you experiment with your unique human design recipe, is that your life will be continually refined & better understood. As you become more aware of your own ingredients, and how to best use them your cake becomes ever-increasingly perfected.

Perfected in its own, delectably unique way of course.  At least, that is what has happened for me since, 2018 when I first started learning about and apply the concepts of human design. 

My cake used to be pretty good. Now it's freaking delicious. 


And that, my friend, is exactly what delivered me to this point: The point of deep study and sharing of the Human Design system. First, I started learning and using it. Then, I began to pull nourishment client charts on the back end, so that I would personally have a better idea of how to guide my clients to use their unique ingredients to bake their best cake.

Then, as I noticed it was working for me and my clients, I started a year-long, four-part training to become certified as a Quantum Alignment, Human Design Analyst. Now, I have not only added this system to my Avenues of Nourishment client structure, but have created an offering that is solely Human Design, as an ode au gâteau - that is, an ode to cake (it sounded cooler in French).
Your cake to be exact.

Why? Because I want your life's mystery to be as rich, refined & deeply satisfying as the best (in your subjective opinion) cake on earth. 

So, now that we've whet our metaphorical appetites, let's look a bit closer at the more literally logistics of Human Design.

Okay, I like cake.
but what on earth is

human design? 

Human design is an augmentative system that we'll use as a road map to navigate your energetic patterning, conditioning & de-conditioning, archetypal reflection & deep understanding of the Self.

Human Design is one of the best ways to cultivate more awareness (of Self & Other), as it equips us with an energetic & mechanical blueprint of the following:
1) Your aura & energetic type
2) Your strategy: how your energetic type can best move through the physical world
3) Your inner authority & decision making
4) Your emotional themes
5) Your consistent & variable energetic patterning
6) Your unique cognition, awareness & optimal environment
7) and, the archetypal rolls we find ourselves moving within through the phases of our lives

Human design is an illuminating road map when used alone & a helpful accessory to any other modalities. 

It is a synthesis of the Chakra System, the Kabbalah, Quantum Physics, Astrology, the Chinese I-Ching, and Nature versus Nurture.

It is a cross-cultural archetype tool. It draws on ancient & modern archetypal patterning, and there are no competing modalities, as Human Design compliments all of the various modalities by providing insight into the mechanics of how we operate.

Human design facilitates our deconditioning process, making room for more of our truest, most authentic selves. It is an accurate decision making tool that, when practiced, gives us access to our true self, The Secret Self, which is liberated by living in accordance with one's Type, Authority & Strategy. 

The most fascinating thing about Human Design is to experience what happens when we cease making decisions from the mind - the mental awareness - and begin using out authority to make decisions.

But, as we say in Human Design, don't take my word for it. It's not something you need to believe in.

But, something you're encouraged to experiment with. Try it on to see how it fits.  

Or better yet, taste your cake now, and taste it again, after using the Human Design recipe.
Then, you choose which is more tantalizing. 


You can generate your Human Design here. And, don't worry if you have no idea what any of it means! That

is absolutely normal and is what I'm here for.
