(In the last 6 years before he died in March 2011, Ra (the founder of Human Design). intensively taught advanced classes about the architectural structures below the surface of the chart. It was my great good fortune and privilege to be a participant in those classes.)
Advanced readings involve analyzing information that is called – substructure. It can be looked at in an Advanced Imaging chart which shows attributes of the cognitive architecture (base, tone and color) that bring differentiated nuance to the final expression on the surface at the line level.
A foundation reading deals with the surface mechanics, and the surface is the place where life is played out. Understanding the nature of those mechanics and experimenting with the decision making that aligns you to the form principle is always at the core of the HD journey.
However there is incredible information below the line that can support the journey of differentiation. It always helps the mind to be educated in just how unique you are actually designed to be. The substructure information is very specifically about the cognitive capacity that is the gift that your unique vehicle carries, both physically and mentally. In fact it amounts to a combination of cognitive ability that can be looked in 4 different areas in a chart. Two on the body consciousness side (Design)and two on the personality side. The FOUR TRANSFORMATIONS are the STARTING POINT for working with the substructure in the advanced session work. That is why in this website they have their own ‘page’. There is another page for continuing advanced session work that is less central (though not less powerful) to the four transformations information.
PRIMARY HEALTH SYSTEM – PHS
PHS deals with our potential for differentiation of form. (just as with finger prints, we potentially have as unique body’s and brains)
1.DIGESTION how you are designed to eat (not what you eat) 2.ENVIRONMENT where your body meets the least resistance
PHSAmazingly in the substructure there is information that concerns how we are designed to eat (NOT what we eat) so that our bodies and most importantly our brains, get the exact nutrients that support their unique functioning (known as a genetic pre-disposition to form differentiation – as in, everybody’s ‘nose’ is shaped differently, so also with their brain and how it can specifically function in service of that unique form)
As we evolved as a specie we went from eating simple food (cave man diet) to eating within a very population dense context (modern man), there were resulting adaptations in our digestive system. The level of adaption that a digestive system carries can be read in the color and tone information.
Recently I was telling a mother that her child likes to eat ‘hot or warm food’, she told me the two and half year old refuses to eat anything cold. When I pointed out that this was the intelligence in her body speaking, the mother instantly acknowledged that the pre-disposition for how her daughter wanted to eat was obvious and without this specific information she might over time have tried to dissuade her from this somewhat inconvenient inclination.
This genetic pre-disposition is very clear in young children, and supporting it is key to the development of the full potential for neural capacity in their brain. For us adults that were subjected to homogenized eating habits, those neural pathways were not optimally structured to support our uniqueness. When we come later in life to the PHS regimen it does bring the possibility for serious enhancement of the physical brain. Though it is not the same as the opportunity that is there when the brain as an organ is first forming.
The information relates to both digestion and the environment that most enhances our physical well being in that it is the context for our lives where me meet the least resistance (wear and tear).
Rave Psychology deals with the potential for differentiation of mind. (we are designed to share from a deeply subjective unique awareness).
3.PERSEPCTIVE the view of life that establishes yourunique awareness 4.AWARENESS represents the passenger’s unique awareness of their journey
Watching DISTRACTION of the perspective and COLOR TRANSFERENCE in the awareness are further tools for consciousness from this info.
RAVE PSYCHOLOGY with its mapping of the mind is the information that educates the mind about the mind. We each have a differentiated ability to mentally process the world, the notion of an IQ test is totally 7 centered, it is setting an arbitrary standard for intelligence whereas as 9 centered beings we are equally intelligent in our own way. From a very early age we get the message to use the mind to run the life, we end up lost in a mental maize that is disconnected from our real cognitive mental gifts.
Rave Psychology is an incredibly accurate mapping of the true cognitive capacity that each mind is carrying as a birth right. It is mind blowing to learn about the specific unique mechanics within the mind. We have never before had a tool like this for diffusing the runaway mental movie.
Obviously the decision making experiment of accessing a ‘yes or no’ by aligning to the form is the first evidence for the mind that it has another job. The information in the mind mapping is a whole new level for educating the mind about the mind to be the incredible cognitive measuring machine it is exactly designed to be.
The tools of Rave psychology are about discovering your differentiated mind and in the process of standing back and observing the mechanism of mind, the awareness of passenger consciousness emerges. In the 9 centered life we serve evolutions purpose by developing our cognitive ability to cleanly take in the view that our particular ride involves.
In the end Rave Psychology in dealing with the end-point of the
mind is the umbrella information that supports integration of the
READINGS & SESSIONS WITH KUMUD It is recommended to receive the sessions in the order of starting with 1, and
ending with 4. However everyone being unique that order is not essential. Everything in Human
Design concerns the power of making decisions from strategy and authority.
WHAT IS YOUR PHS?
DIGESTION: PHS READINGS
PRIMARY HEALTH SYSTEM – PHS is about how we are genetically designed to digest food and take in the nutrients that support the uniqueness of our form and in particular our cognitive differentiated brain function. (this is about how to eat, rather than what to eat).
The digestive wiring can be seen in the Color. The 5 keynotes are: Appetite, Taste, Thirst, Touch, Sound and Light
Below the Color is the Tone, this indicates the main cognition the brain is works with. We have all of them but there is one, that is the specialization that is inherent in our design.The 5 keynotes are: Smell , taste, outer and inner vision, feeling and touch
In-depth PHS reading:1 hour plus extra time for questions and interaction about what is happening in the actual life and how that fits the context of the whole design. This big picture understanding supports the deconditioning that gets enhanced from the PHS eating - $150
PHS reading and Environment Reading combined 1.5 hr, plus extra time for questions and interaction $200
PHS SUPPORT SESSIONS
Eating according to the dietary regimen that is indicated in your chart, initializes a long term cleansing process. It takes 7 years for the cells of the body to change and integrate the new frequency that results from this way of eating.
There can be obvious physical cleansing reactions. However many times as the resulting individuation process unfolds, people ask for support for how their minds can handle the changes as old mental patterns also loosen.
Support sessions - 1 hour - $100
WHAT IS YOUR ENVIRONMENT?
The PHS eating involves the transformation of the body and brain. Once this is in process, there are three other readings possible. These involve information on the variables attributes - Environment, Motivation and View.
ENVIRONMENT - this is reading, where there is information in the chart concerning the environment that is most supportive to the unique life. In the end it is related to longevity since it is the place where you meet the least resistance on the body.
Color indicates the categories - Caves, Markets, Kitchens, Mountains, Valleys and Shores Tone indicates the cognition within the environment - Smell, taste, outer and inner vision, feeling and touch
A reading will give a context for how to understand those broad almost 'poetic' categories and what your Human Design chart indicates for you personally.
Environment Reading: 1 hour - $150
WHAT IS YOUR PERSPECTIVE?
VIEW: PERSPECTIVE READINGS
VIEW - once we are in the right environment, then there is the question of what we are designed to be looking at. This is known as the view, or the perspective. It is information about the frame through which the mind is designed to take in information. Color - Survival, Possibility, Power, Wanting, Probability, Personal Tone - fear, uncertainty, action, meditation, judgment, acceptance
These are obviously very cryptic categories and there is a lot to say about what exactly is involved. There is a dualistic component since to see in one way must involve the reference of seeing within a spectrum of a polarity. The information points to the correct proportion of our ‘true seeing’ out weighing our ‘distracted seeing’
View Reading: 1 hour - $150
WHAT IS DISTRACTION?
Follow up sessions deal with Distraction. Distraction is the terminology used to understand how easily the mind will see in the opposite polarity from how it designed to take in the world. It must be able to see in that opposite way to some extent but not make a home there. When the conceptualizing is based on the distracted view then distortion happens in the thinking process. Watching this is a knack that takes time and deconstructs ever deeper layers of not self habitual thinking.
Sessions working with Distraction: 1 hour - $100
WHAT IS YOUR AWARENESS?
AWARENESS: MOTIVATION READING
Motivation is used in Human Design terminology to describe how the mind is designed to think. Our mind's are designed to be aware in a very specific frame.
Color - Fear, Hope, Desire, Need, Guilt, or Innocence Tone - fear, uncertainty, action, meditation, judgment, acceptance
Again these are very cryptic words that need to be de-coded in a reading so that they are meaningful. None of them have a negative connotation.
Motivation Reading: 1 hour - $150
WHAT IS MOTIVATION TRANSFERENCE?
Follow up sessions work with Motivation Color Transference. This is Human Design terminology for how the mind can be pulled from the motivation it is designed to think from, to the exact opposite. This is a very interesting tool, not for trying to 'do' something to change the way we think, but that there is a specific mechanic observable. It is a device to allow standing back from the thinking and watching. Anything that can help us dis-identify with thinking our mind is in charge of running the life is an amazing tool.
Sessions working with Motivation transference: 1 hour - $150
Motivation Color Transference and Distraction
Motivation Color Transference and Distraction information is about giving the mind 'signposts' for measurement. The gift of the mind is in it's measuring ability, it’s clearly useless at running the life. Most of us have a sense that it is a waste of time worrying, and know that knowing that does not stop the mind for a moment.
Motivation is a
mechanic that concerns the style of the mind’s thinking. Distraction is the
mechanic describing what feeds into that thinking style. Duality must involve a
referencing from a spectrum between two opposite yet complimentary qualities.
Guess what? When we live from homogenized mental conditioning we get pulled to
the polar opposite quality that would represent our ‘natural’ mind. To know the
specifics of the ‘distraction and the ‘transference’ is to provide a very
interesting mechanic for the mind to measure and be watchful about.
Watcher and Watched
can be ‘done’ to change the way
we think, (ever tried to not think about monkeys?) it is not about
with the mind or stilling the mind. However because an accurate mechanic
can be described from a person’s chart, about the
specific track their ‘thinking’ will take, a device emerges that
teaches standing back from the thought process. This separating the
from the ‘watcher’ accesses the passenger consciousness realm. There can
be a disentangling of our identification with mind and it can be
allowed to function
as the differentiated awareness mechanism it was designed to be.
The first step is always about building a trust in
life through the decision making experiment. The evidence from that provides an
anchoring to the being that we belong the way we are designed. From that
grounding then there is the possibility to educate the mind about it’s true
value. Working with Rave Psychology may not be everybody’s cup of tea. It is
information for those who want to work with a very sophisticated tool for
undoing how the mind built its survival strategies.
Motivation Color Trajectory
Rave Psychology information is very specific in
any given chart for the trajectory learning curve of the mind’s
process (seen in the personality color). There is a doorway to passenger
in observing this exact mechanical track. First it concerns watching the
the mind predictably and habitually produces the ‘not-self ‘identity
movie and the intensity of the conditioning to use the mind for decisions
but also to be the protector of a ‘self image’.
There are two levels; one concerns watching
the transferred motivation come and go. The other concerns watching an evolving
awareness that will take place along a specific track – called the trajectory.
Transformation It is in the process of acknowledging the presence of the not self with compassion and
non-interference, that a slow transformation is able to take place As we locate in the
neutral watcher we access the passenger, as soon as we do that, we have
unhooked from the fuel to build the not self. Beyond that is the true functioning of mind as a cognitive measuring tool that filters the awareness in self reflection. That allows for the expression of true outer authority.
