Using Tools for Transformation – What You Need to Know

Share this

I received an email comment regarding my last post on How to Be Happy that I’d like to discuss with my readers. The person who wrote the comment recommended a system / tool for transformation and raising consciousness about your higher purpose called “Human Design,” with which I haven’t had any experience. The following is her comment:

“I was reading your recent post (have been subscribed for a while) and have the urge to point you to the Human Design System at If you are truly interested in getting away from generalizing ‘wisdom’ and deconditioning it is a most valuable thing to investigate. I have listened to teachers of all sorts (not the ‘Secret’) for years until I found out about my design and how to arrive at passenger consciousness. We each have a unique inner authority and to align with it takes study, understanding and practice.

Otherwise you are contributing to the generalized teachings – albeit in what you perceive as your very own realizations and add to the confusion…”

Firstly, I’d like to respond that some advice is meant to be general and really does pertain to all of us (for example, learn to love unconditionally, learn to connect with and integrate with your higher self) and some advice just doesn’t pertain to everyone (for example, get yourself fit by preparing for a marathon).

The following advice (that I have been saying for years now) is general and pertains to all of us reading this post: Connect with your higher self and follow through with your own inner guidance so that you fulfill your higher purpose, your contribution to the Golden Age that we’re now creating.

What makes a path unique / individualized to you though is that each and every one of you will receive unique and individual inner guidance from your own higher self (your “soul blueprint”) that will help you fulfill your unique contribution.

In my eBook, the steps I share are for the general audience and helpful to anyone seeking to connect and integrate with their higher self, but the examples I have given of the inner guidance received and the results achieved pertain to myself and to people I know who have shared their success stories with me. (And by sharing those examples, readers do get a good sense of how things work and why, so that they can do it for themselves, and also, they get a sense of the kinds of results they can expect in their life.) Of course you won’t achieve exactly the same results; rather, the results you achieve will be unique and meaningful to you.

Secondly, I perused the jovianarchive website and found that the Human Design system uses astrology as well as other methodologies to help people gain insight into their soul blueprint or “design.”

Using a tool or a system such as Human Design can help inform, teach and give people insight into their life (of course, getting extra insight from another person or source can be very helpful). However, I strongly caution that no system is perfect and it makes sense to always check the information you receive from a transformation tool or another person against your own intuition / inner guidance. Regardless of whether you use astrology, Human Design, pendulums, psychics, channeled messages or any other tool or guidance system, it is always wise to develop your own inner guidance system and when any discrepancies do occur, I would always go with my own inner guidance rather than with what Human Design (or any other system) prescribes. (This is where I suspect the source of confusion that the commenter mentions comes in.)

Remember, the ultimate tool for transformation and raising your consciousness is to connect with your higher self and gain more and more confidence in this connection until you get to a point that I call the “critical mass”–where you give your higher self and inner guidance at least as much credence and attention as anyone or anything outside of yourself, including any kind of tool for transformation … because this is when personal transformation and the magic of Interconnectedness really begins in your life.

    You’re right with what you say Christine about the higher self being the ultimate tool for transformation that is so true. As for me whilst i am into astrology,numerology, tarot cards etc for how they ‘help’ shed a lot of light though quite accurate especially the natal chart in astrology, there is none other than the higher self to be the ultimate one of all. Love and light Selina x

    Christine, I have been reading your news letter about one year ago, last two or three months I ‘m surprised by the amount of answering to readers who, in one form or another criticize your posts.
    Why you give them your appreciated energy?
    Sincerely, I prefer you share with us your tips, your experience, tools, etc.

    Good points! As for myself, I am most open to other sources who always, in the end, encourage us to go to source through ourselves rather than some tools from a program. There is nothing wrong with tools in and of themselves, but the quickest surest way to source is practicing the journey within!

    Joshua I have visited your site and found your views as i do mine in how it resonates and ties in astrology with the 12 zodiac signs in the bible,and with how the son/sun of god is i.e 12 lost tribes,12 disciples, 12 months etc,12 along with 3 and 7 are the numbers which our basis of reality are built with there are 7 day and 7 nights ,7 colours of the rainbow/rays ,7 planets, 7 musical notes, 7 planes of being etc, 3 realms of nature Fire =heaven Earth= water Air =mediator of fire and water. 3 is the father,son and holy ghost. The 3 =trinity = eternally= all there is Amen, Namaste, love & light x

    • Thanks Selina. So great for you to have found Joshua’s blog! I like to visit Joshua’s site often; the way he interprets the Bible makes so much more sense than the literal interpretations.

    I should like to add to my comment what i really meant to say is, although i believe the higher self is the ultimate one first & foremost, I do believe that astrology & numerology are a very important part to what is true. And to Joshua, i will visit your site again as you have a lot of interesting topics that i look forward to read. Love and light x
