Human Design and Aura Mechanics

Alright, I’m *all in* on the Human Design experiment right now. I’m studying this system several days a week with pleasure and ease. 

If you don’t know your Human Design type, you can find out what it is here. Then come back and get the skinny below.

This system is highly effective in increasing self-awareness, but what seems to set it apart from other systems I’ve studied is that it provides actionable solutions to experiment with.

Where should we begin? With HOW THE AURAS WORK FOR EACH TYPE 


  • INTRO TO MANIFESTORS (9% of the population):

Manifestors often feel as though they’ve been called to this life to *do something big* or that they’re *here for a specific reason*  — and indeed, they are here to start the fire! The Manifestor aura is closed, repelling, and cannot be penetrated by others. The mechanics of this aura allow for the Manifestor to spend time uninterrupted + it allows them to come up with (or channel) their next contribution to humanity. The Manifestor’s strong presence may have an intimidating effect on others, so it’s crucial that they learn how TO INFORM others of what they are thinking, doing, feeling, emoting, etc.  Manifestors do not need to wait to act upon anything in order to have support from the Universe, and their ideas are often believed to be channeled via Divinity itself.

  • GENERATORS AND MANIFESTING-GENERATORS (31% and 37% respectively)
  • Strategy: TO RESPOND

Generators and MGs create the most dominant aura energy type on the planet, together making up roughly 70% of the population. Their auras are magnetic, inviting, and warm, so Generators and MGs can rest assured that all opportunities will come to them. Generators and MGs are the custodians of the sacral energy; the buzzing, electric energy that’s required to accomplish tasks, create things, meet goals, etc. over long periods of time. This is what makes them the natural hustlers, doers, and go-getters. Learn more about how to exercise your Generator/MG authority here.

  • PROJECTORS (22% of the population)

Projectors have a penetrating, focused, and absorbing aura. This makes them able to see and feel the experience of the other types (more on that in 1:1 sessions), so that Projectors can effectively GUIDE the other(s). Projectors hold within them the template for a new era in humanity, and they are here to guide the other types toward that new future. Because the Projector aura is penetrating and can see deeply into the identity of other people, this aura has potential to come off as invasive or uncomfortable to other types, which can be managed by exercising the Projector strategy,  to wait for the invitation.

  • REFLECTORS (1% of the population)

Reflectors, the rarest Human Design type, have a SAMPLING aura which allows them to mirror and amplify other people’s energy back to them. The other three types have their purpose “shining” through them, while Reflectors are designed to reflect the sun’s programming; Reflectors have no defined centers (their whole chart is white). Due to their openness, Reflectors have the potential to yield the deepest wisdom of all 4 aura types. Many aspects of the Reflector can be traced back to our early human ancestors that lived in harmony with the cosmos, and therefore their strategy is to WAIT A 28-DAY LUNAR CYCLE.

Synchronicity + Hilma af Klint

Synchronicities: Some write them off as coincidences, but many spiritually-inclined folks understand these experiences to be meaningfully related.

I recently released a painting series and made it available on my artist website. My friend Dawn, who is also a medium, purchased a print of the painting above, and she told me it reminded her of Swedish artist Hilma af Klint. Naturally, I began to research Klint extensively (I have a degree in art history, which many may find useless, but I have found it to be remarkably practical in my life).

When I researched Hilma, not only did I discover that we are both psychic mediums (!), but also that we both paint without underdrawings, or preliminary sketches. We paint intuitively and from a completely receptive state. Many people don’t know about Hilma, a member of  the pre-Modern abstract movement, because she requested that her paintings not be shown to the public until 20 years after her death; she did not feel as though anyone would understand them yet.

While I was looking at her work, I saw a yellow spiral in this piece, which I immediately recognized. Turns out I had subconsciously cut out that spiral and added it to a Sunlight Oracle promo collage on my 1:1 page. See here:

The night after Dawn mentioned Hilma to me, she visited me in a dream. When people ask me about visitation dreams, I’ve always understood them to be the Spirit’s last-ditch effort at trying to get your attention, i.e. when you’re in the vulnerable state of sleeping as opposed to the waking state of supressing. 

In my dream, Hilma and I were on an air plane together, painting the same MEET YOUR MAKER painting in front of a large group of onlookers. We were mixing neon oil paints in my prized food processor. I can now welcome Hilma into my artist process, and I am so excited to create more spirit-inspired painting for the world with her help.



Spirit portraits in oil, pt. 3

This week I have three unclaimed oil painting Spirit portraits. 

If you’re new here (many of you are!), I paint Spirits that come visit me without knowing who they are or whom they are trying to connect with. If you recognize them and at least 80% of the accompanying information, you can claim them as your loved one. Please read the description and e-mail me ( if you recognize these folks. You can scroll down and check out the last couple of entries as well. Have fun.
