Start running your business as a human design Reflector and say goodbye to the one-size-fits-all advice! In this guide, you will learn how wisdom is your code to impact and how community is key to reach your next level of success in business.
Dearest human design Reflector,
I am here to remind you that the answers you’ve been searching for in business have been with you all along. Written in the stars. Written in your soul. Waiting for you to come home and awaken what is already within you.
As soul-driven business owners, we often embark on the journey of starting and building our multi-passionate business dreams with a yearning for freedom and a desire to lead a more authentic life. It’s an arena that gifts us the opportunity to break free from the restrictive one-size-fits-all rules that hold us back, and intentionally pave a new pathway in life that feels in deeper alignment with who we are.
For many stepping into the realm of business, it feels foreign. So we do what every other “smart” person does. Follow the step-by-step six-figure success formulas. Copy-paste the businesses of our greatest expanders. Go along with the cookie-cutter industry approaches, without asking ourselves the very important question: Is this actually in alignment with me, the business I wish to run, and the life I wish to live each & every day?
I too learned the hard way after applying all the standard marketing tricks I used to grow other people’s multi-million dollar brands onto my own business, that no amount of external “success” was worth the burn-out or frustration that came with working against my natural energetic blueprint (read about it in my Year One Human Design in Business Experiment blog post). The truth is success isn’t real success if it means abandoning who we really are as soulpreneurs in business.
So my dear human design Reflector, I’m here to gently let you know that you can stop seeking now…because the real magic in business (and life) happens when you come back home to medicine seeded in the energetic blueprint you were born with.
Growing a business as a Human Design Reflector
Perhaps you’ve already heard of the system that is Human Design and have started your experiment as a Reflector in your own life. You’ve googled what your chart means but you are still left wondering, what does this actually mean for my business?
Right now, your mind may be full of a million questions like…
How am I meant to actually build a stable business when I have ALL undefined centers, let alone an undefined sacral? Business is inherently about being “consistent”…how on earth am I going to be successful when I’m anything but! How am I going to make lots of money or attract an overflow of clients if I don’t have sustainable work-force energy?
How am I going to keep up with the world if I’m meant to wait 28 days? Like, does that mean I need to lie around doing nothing all day and wait for a magical genie to pop out and give me permission to act? How am I going to attract clients or even make money if I need to wait an entire lunar cycle?!
Does being a “mirror” mean I even have gifts to share in business? Every other type has defined centers! How can I run a business if I’m so sensitive and taking in everyone else’s energy 24/7?
Energy type is a foundational area of the human design system, and each type is said to play a certain role in humanity. In my experience of also experimenting and working with the human design system specifically in the realm of business and marketing, I’ve found there to be a unique role each energy type is here to embody in the business collective as well.
Business owners with Reflector energy hold the gift of being able to see others deeply and mirror back. I call them the All Seers of the business collective. Business serves as a vehicle for them to share their wisdom in fluid ways.
Designing your business and marketing strategies around your Reflector energy type, and holistic human design chart (because type is a very small piece of it!) means you get to work in deep harmony with your natural energetics and use your life-force in more effective and aligned ways.
Here are just a few ways Reflectors can start to thrive in business…
1. Drop the hustle and befriend patience in business.
In the old business paradigm, all business owners ought to be ‘go-getters’. You know, out there knocking down people’s doors, pitching and pushing your products or services onto people who haven’t asked in the hopes that you’ll attract more sales. #carsalesman style.
Maybe you’ve even gone ahead and used some of these tactics before like sending cold DMs to a bunch of people you don’t know, and just out there working your absolute hardest without much thought about your human design strategy of waiting a lunar cycle’.
Our human design strategy is about how we are uniquely designed to engage with external stimuli and attract the opportunities that are right for us when also following our human design authority. Business owners with Reflector energy are designed to wait and reflect before agreeing to commit to larger business opportunities.
That means noticing the opportunities that flow your way in the external realm or the ideas forming in your crown but taking your sweet time with them! Not rushing, not forcing, not saying yes to the things you don’t wish to do or saying yes when you really wish you said “let me sit on it…and I’ll get back to you”. It means building friends with patience and cultivating trust in divine timing in the arena of business.
2. Embrace your inner wisdom in business & be intentional about your environment.
As a human design Reflector, you are a wise observer due to your open centers. This can be a significant advantage when it comes to understanding your soul clients and customers and how you can serve them best. Your soul is a wisdom keeper and your business is a vehicle for you to share the wisdom you have gathered with your audience. As a reflector, you are here to reflect back to society where they are at. This means you often accumulate great wisdom that you can share through your marketing- blogging and other long forms of content like video can work really well for you. Ask yourself, how can I fully share the wisdom I have accumulated in my life so far?
Another key thing I’ve learnt working with Reflector types, is the serious importance on the type of environment you place yourself in or the type of community you build around you. With all undefined centers, it’s a common feeling that you’re literally mirroring everyone around you. The benefit of having your own business is having the freedom to choose WHO you wish to mirror! Placing yourself in the wrong environment or a niche you aren’t in resonance with will likely have a disharmonious impact on not only your business but your personal life too. The Balanced Blonde is someone who I see as a massive expander for Reflectors, she’s someone who has built a community that feels like family and this is an incredible superpower you can also tap into when it comes to your marketing as a fellow Reflector.
3. Work smarter, not harder in business.
When entering the realm of business, you’ll be bombarded with messages around the glorification of the ‘hustle’ like experts that tell you to do all that you can to make sales even if it depletes you!
Whilst you have a lot to share, you don’t necessarily need the full kit and kaboodle of marketing platforms if you’re starting out, nor is posting daily or showing up 24/7 a must. Your soul type is highly sensitive as you are taking in, filtering and amplifying out so much energy. Being very intentional with the way you use your energy in marketing and growing your business is a game-changer. Analysing the return on investment of your marketing tactics is important for you to reserve your energy.
It is important to take time for yourself to recharge and have boundaries for yourself in business.
Human Design is the most powerful system you can integrate in business. It allows you to design your offers, market your business, attract dream clients or customers and overall grow your business in a way that aligns uniquely to you.
