Welcome, to "Raising the Roof"! I'm Laurie Alfano, your enthusiastic guide on this exciting adventure through the intriguing world of Human Design. As a 4/6 ego authority Manifestor, I've been immersing myself in the depths of Human Design for since 2019, and I can't wait to share, learn, teach, and grow with all of you. So, let's dive in together and uncover the hidden treasures within ourselves!
What is Human Design? Let's Make it Fun!
Human Design is essentially your personal guide through life, like a cosmic GPS. It maps out the unique aspects of your personality and life journey. Imagine it as a dance where each step and turn is part of a bigger plan. In this system, we all fit into one of five types: Manifestor, Generator, Manifesting Generator, Projector, or Reflector. Each type gives us clues about our energy and how we move through life's dance.
Overview of the Types:
Manifestors: The initiators, paving new paths and sparking action.
Generators: The powerhouses, brimming with energy and passion for their pursuits.
Manifesting Generators: A dynamic blend of quick thinking and enduring energy, moving through life with zest.
Projectors: The insightful guides, offering unique perspectives and wisdom.
Reflectors: The rare mirrors of society, reflecting the world's complexities.
Join Me on a Personal Story of Growth and Discovery:
My story is a vivid illustration of living true to being a manifestor. In the realm of Human Design, manifestors are the initiators, the trailblazers who start things. We're not the ones to continue and toil; our essence is in creation, in sparking new beginnings. This understanding has been pivotal in my journey, especially in the face of a world that often expects us to be something we're not.
My career in the fitness industry is a testament to this. I always excelled, rising to the top with ease, not out of arrogance, but driven by a deep-seated passion. I gave everything to what I loved, and success naturally followed. However, the challenge arose when the structure of my career began to resemble more of a generator's path — an ongoing, sustained effort without the recognition or reward that was due. It was a square peg in a round hole; I was being nudged into a role that didn't align with my inherent nature.
In 2019, following my manifestor's instinct, I decided it was time for a new beginning. I left the comfort of a predetermined path to start my own fitness business. This wasn't just about a new venture; it was an embodiment of what it means to be a manifestor. I created something innovative and empowering, a program that others could take and run with, forming their mini-businesses. It was about initiating a movement, not just sustaining a business.
Then, when the world shifted in 2020, my manifestor traits were again called upon. I had already set the stage for an online transition, seamlessly moving my operations and clients to a digital platform. While others were adapting, I was already there, not because I foresaw the future, but because my manifestor nature had guided me to start something that was already a step ahead.
Throughout this journey, I've faced pressure to conform to a generator's role — to be the ever-present face of my business, to maintain and nurture it continually. But that’s not where my strengths lie. Manifestors ignite; we create and move on to the next spark. My refusal to bow down to these generator-like expectations was me listening to my inner authority, staying true to my manifestor essence.
This realization and acceptance have been liberating. It's allowed me to focus on what I do best: creating, inspiring, and then stepping back to let others carry the torch forward. It's not about being in the limelight or continuously driving the business. It’s about being the catalyst for others’ success.
So, this is part of my story. A journey of understanding and living my true nature, amidst a world that often misunderstands what drives a person like me. It's a narrative of starting, creating, and leading the way for others to follow, in their own time and their own manner.
