Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #732- FRI, FEB 09- (02-09-2018): #1- What happens when Gringos and Expats come up against Latin superstitions? When faced with firmly held Latin superstitions, its best to just watch, shut up and play along. Don’t argue or try using logic. Sure you’ll win the intellectual battle but in the end lose the war. Brains do not stump superstition. …
The Human Design System’s intriguing predictions for 2017
Each year, the Human Design System provides a chart of the year ahead. It usually gets activated later in January (this year the 21st) closer to the Chinese New Year.
I’ll be speaking with ReGina Concotelli who is also a Human Design analyst, as I am.
We’ll be analyzing the chart and explain the form that this year will take and how it shows us the way to manage it and ourselves.
I can tell you that it truly understands the crazy times we’re in and gives us very specific strategies.
You don’t want to miss this opportunity and be better prepared to tackle the times we are facing.
Are you living a healing life?
Many people have had overwhelming life traumas and are pursuing a healing path.
Lynne Cockrum-Murphy had many of those and has been heroic in finding ways to live in peace.
Her healing journey began as a 2 1/2 year old when her house burned down killing her father and sisters and leaving her with severe burns. Her caregivers became dysfunctional and one trouble led to another.
Instead of losing hope, she began a journey of “Living Hope”, the title of her book. She experimented with many modes of healing and her book is full of powerful healing opportunities.
Every year, the Human Design System reveals the unique world-wide themes and characteristics we will have to deal with. There’s much detail and I’ll be talking with ReGina Concotelli, a fellow Human Design Analyst who I often compare notes with.
It’s uncanny how this system can derive so many unique insights through the placement of the planets, the wisdom of the Chinese I’Ching and a chakra template. Most of the time, these charts are used with people’s birth dates and give an accurate rendition of the mechanics of their personalities.
ReGina and I will examine the Human Design chart for this year and it has a lot to say. Every new year, we wait for the chart to show a particular alignment that signifies the start of the Human Design year. This year, the date was January 22nd.
