When you think back to your childhood, were there topics that were taboo in your family? I know for me growing up in a biracial household, there were so many topics that we just didn't talk about. We either ignored them or we, we just, you know, didn't face them head on. So I'm excited to bring you today's guest because she's someone who helps other people dive into some of these taboo topics. And we're going to talk about maybe how we can start to lean in, pay attention, and really uncover these stories and move on from them.

Have you ever felt like there was something missing in your business, something holding you back from the success you're seeking? If so, you are not alone? For nearly 20 years, that's exactly how I felt as a business owner. It wasn't until I discovered Human Design, that it all became clear. And it turns out that I was the missing piece in my own business. Join me on this journey of discovering the real me and hear stories from other business owners, building businesses around all of their awesomeness. I'm Yong Pratt, and it's time my friend to Amplify Your Awesome™.

Yong Pratt 1:16
Hey there, everyone. Welcome back to the podcast. I'm Yong Pratt, your host and Expert Content Gold Mining Guide. And today, I am really thrilled to bring you another guest. She is someone that we connected years ago in a mastermind. I've been watching her silently on places like Facebook, seeing the awesome things that she's doing than many pivots that she's had. So I'm excited to bring her on today. Today's guest is Judy Tsuei and she is known for building real engagement through powerful content creation as a forward facing a brand voice representative. She's a Simon and Schuster author, and has been a guest on numerous top rated iTunes podcasts, as well as featured in Fast Company, BBC travel, mind body green, and so many more. Her popular podcast fluxing face empowers mental and emotional health for Asian Americans by breaking through taboo topics. This is gonna be a juicy one, Judy, welcome to the show.

Judy Tsuei 2:14
Thank you so much for having me. It's been so fun to watch your journey as well. And every time I get your emails in my inbox, I celebrate what it is that you're doing. Because we did meet so many years ago, and there have been so many life stages that have happened since then.

Yong Pratt 2:26
Oh, my gosh, yeah, I know, I just have my oldest just graduated from high school. So I mean, it's just all these big milestones. And, and I always celebrate yours as well, when I, whenever I see your your thing pop up in my newsfeed or I get your emails like, Oh, I can't believe she's doing this now. So I'm always just amazed. And I know, when we were connecting to this podcast, you also share that you're a big fan of human design. So I want to start there and talk about what is your human design because I love sharing the people that there's so many ways to create a business and create content. So let's talk about human design. What are you?

Judy Tsuei 3:03
I'm a generator. And what's funny is that when I first discovered that so the Asian-ness, which is part of what the podcast is about, I had so much judgment. I'm like, wait, that's it, I'm just a generator, like I'm not one of them, like special projectors or you know, anything that's like a little bit more rare. I want it to be like a plus. But then, the first time I discovered Human Design. I was living in Hawaii at the time. And I never heard about this before. And so I was invited to this kind of group gathering where they were learning about human design, but they would also, you know, choose someone and put their chart up and just kind of like read about, you know who they were. And so as I'm having this teacher, his name is Genoa read to me or just share with me about kind of like the way that I'm, I've been programmed all of my life just the way I was innately born and like, you know, things that have happened in my life, I started laughing out loud, because I was like, how do you know about my life entirely based on this random complex chart that you're looking at right here right now?

Yong Pratt 4:01
Yeah, I had the same experience and, and I found it through a local friend, actually. She had interviewed someone for her podcast introduced me to this to this mentor of mine. And yeah, learning these things. It really was like someone had had lived through the story of my life and opened up a random page and could tell me exactly, you know, certain things in my life. And I thought, whoa, like this magical window into this alternate universe was opened up and, and so I'm a projector. So when I learned that, I think I was kind of disappointed to because I was like, I have to wait. Why do I have to? I am not good at waiting. I am not a very patient person. And so if you're taking along a lot of deconditioning, and a lot of relearning and knowing that it's okay in this space where I get to wait, I get to create, which is the best part of what I get to do.

Judy Tsuei 4:50
I love that and it felt like you know, as you were describing, it just felt like I was just suddenly given permission to be exactly who I was. supposed to be and it felt very liberating. So for anybody who hasn't done their human design, I think it's a fascinating art, and science. And you know, it blends all of that I actually interviewed someone on my podcast who's a Human Design expert. And so the people, the listeners reached out to me to say, like, I loved hearing that interview, I love discovering, like, Oh my gosh, I can kind of get this guidebook to how I am and how I could better thrive in life with less hustle and more flow. But it's definitely a practice for sure.

Yong Pratt 5:30
Yeah, cuz it's so easy to fall back into the old habits, the way we were conditioned. And in your life being a generator. I'm married to a generator, so I see it play out. And you know, I have one one daughter, who is a manifesting generator, and another who's a projector like me. However, she has very different strengths in her projectors. So it's been interesting to sort of uncover and learn more about the people in my life and how I can then better stand up and serve them and ask them questions or engage with them. By understanding what they need from me like then the dynamic of that interchange, has really, really been beneficial for me in my life. And so I'm sure you, you have dealt with that as well. Because what is your daughter?

Judy Tsuei 6:11
She is she's also a generator. So yeah, we live

Yong Pratt 6:13
Oh a lot of energy in that household.

Judy Tsuei 6:14
Oh, yeah. What's funny, though, is I was mentioning to you that you know, currently, as we're filming this, I'm at my partner's house. And he also has two kids. And one of them came over to me yesterday, and she was like, she had a little horse on the back of her journal. So I said, Oh, you know, that's while their zodiac sign. She's like, Oh, well, then what's mine? So we went online, and we looked at it, and I was like, wait a minute. Wait, you're a horse, but you're a year older than my daughter. And so I was like, wait, have I been getting my daughter's zodiac sign wrong this whole time? Because I thought she was born three cycles after me. And we were both born in the year of the horse. So I'm still waiting for the verdict from my mom. Just see like what she is. But when it comes to like energy in that household? Yeah, for sure. We have a lot of strong personalities.

Yong Pratt 6:58
Yes, yeah. Which, which just makes it more fun. And yeah, just just takes gives us more evidence of who we were designed to be. And who are the people that we create in this world are designed to be and how we can guide them to discover their awesomeness, because so often, and this leads us to today's topic is this whole idea of taboo topics, things you just don't talk about, because they're either politically charged or emotionally charged. There's just something about them we don't talk about. So my question for you is, we think about these taboo topics, what is a good place to start to kind of assess maybe some of the topics that we learned growing up that were more taboo for us?

Judy Tsuei 7:37
Yeah, that's such a great question. I think that what I realized throughout this journey is I hadn't up until maybe, like five years ago, even start to look at what my core values are, I kind of just like live my life based on the success metrics that were set for me. And a lot of that was financial, you know, like, you better achieve a financial amount of success to be deemed worthy, or you know, that you've made it somehow. And so I started to look at my core values, because my life has always been built so differently, you know, I've lived and I think I counted this recently in over 26 cities and over like six countries, you know, in over like 10 states, and my daughter has come with me on a lot of those journeys, you know, she was born on Guam. We lived in a camper van. We ended up in Austin, then we moved to Asia, and then came back to California. So it's been a whole journey. And it's been hard to kind of figure out that I was built differently, as we touched upon, you know, at the start of the interview, and yet, the old programming is so strong of like, you know, you better if I interviewed a guest who said, Oh, you were supposed to be a doctor or lawyer, or if your parents were really progressive, and engineer, and it was definitely like, you know, how do I create my own model of what's important?

Judy Tsuei 8:50
So I think looking at your core values, and so one of my core values is freedom. And it's time freedom and location, independence and other core value is connection. That's so important to me. And so, you know, when I look at my life, I'm very rich and abundant in those spaces, and I've had other moms reach out to me just saying, like, how do you do that? How do you create community, wherever it is that you go. And then also just being able to have experiences, you know, like memories that are worth telling stories about since I'm a storyteller. And so I think you start with the core values and really assessing that. I think, also understanding when it comes to taboo topics, where do you hold a lot of guilt and shame? And if you're feeling those feelings, like what is it around? You know, I think that that's a great indicator to see like, what am I not supposed to talk about.

Judy Tsuei 9:36
Where do I feel like, you know, I'm not living up to what it is that I'm supposed to be living up to? And I think it's so easy to compare our insides based on someone else's outside, that's what social media does so well. Yes. And so it's hard to think that other people are also going to those states of vulnerability or that also, you know, other people are feeling challenged or struggling, and it's not until You open up and you start to have these honest, authentic conversations that you start to realize, like, Oh, wait, other people are going through this too. So then I don't have to feel that shame in not seeing that. And secondly, when you open up like that, I feel like it automatically creates a deeper connection with the person that you are talking to. I used to be a yoga teacher and a Reiki practitioner.

Judy Tsuei 10:19
And one of the things that I learned along that way was, when you meet someone for the first time, what you're seeking within them is their vulnerability. And it's not to, you know, try to attack or like, you know, understand what their soft points or weak areas are, it's because that vulnerability is what helps us feel safe enough to connect. And so if we're willing to share our vulnerability with them, then they're also willing to do that. And, you know, I can't even count how many times people around me have remarked, like, that stranger just totally opened up to you about their lives, or like, I've never shared this with anyone before. So like, I don't know why I'm sharing it with you. And so, I think that if we're willing to lean into that, and just, you know, reflect and be okay, with being imperfect, which is definitely not like an Asian, no, no, no, then I think that that's how we form those connections and that community.

Yong Pratt 11:09
So good. And this idea of holding on to this guilt and shame. That was a big part of growing up, you know, with with an Asian mom, that was just a huge, like, you just are made to feel guilty about certain things that if you don't achieve certain milestones, so your parents can show or tell your story and show up show you off to people around you. But that's not that's not a good thing. You know, we don't ever want to be standing out. That was another thing I learned like you Indian, which, which I think is so funny now, because for a long time, I was the only half Asian kid in my town with red hair and green eyes and freckles, like how do I not stand out right? amongst a lot of Caucasian people, amongst a lot of people from Mexico, I definitely did not fit in.

Yong Pratt 11:49
But in my culture, that was a thing, like you just, you just stick to your own path, you don't veer off of it, you don't want to cause embarrassment, you don't want to be looked upon, even though there's this expectation of achieving these things that may not be aligned with your values. And I remember, when I went to college, I wanted to go to medical school. And I quickly learned in my first semester, and I worked, I went to go work in a hospital, I took those classes. And I just thought you, I do not want to be doing this because my idea of what that profession looked like, through the eyes of my culture, were very, very different than what they actually turned out to be so. And I stopped with that path for a long time, because there was that guilt and shame of letting other people down. So the day that I graduated from college and decided to leave, pack up my suitcase and go travel the world and perform for a year, I honestly felt my parents were going to fall over. Because they were thinking, no way like you went and you did all the schooling, or you're just gonna waste it. You know, we don't do that you did this thing.

Yong Pratt 12:51
So yeah, so it's taken a lot of years to decompress from that. And I love my parents dearly. And they were doing the best from what they had learned. So it's just been a big learning process. And the human design element has helped me understand why some of those events may have occurred and unfolded in a way that they did versus doing something different. And I just needed to carve this own path. So yes, again, if you're listening, and you're feeling guilt, or shame, yes, start there. Because for me, that's kind of where I had to start. Because there were these just these, these blinking lights, like I knew what they were. And because I didn't, I wasn't equipped with how to emotionally deal with them. It's taken me a long time to unpack that. So let's talk about the emotions behind this because that's a whole different layer. Once we've discovered our core values, once we figure out those places where you might feel shame or guilt, how do we unpack the emotions? Because I think there's so many walls that everyone is taught to put up? How do we dig a little deeper into the emotional vulnerability, and start to let people in through our journey?

Judy Tsuei 13:57
I love that I think that, um, one of the things that I learned when I was in therapy, so I had an eating disorder that I battled for the better part of 15 years, and just really had to uncover a lot of just repressed anger to, you know, the eating disorder of choice, quote, unquote, that I had was pollinia. And it's a very violent like self attacking kind of eating disorder, because you're like, bingeing and you're purging and just really like pushing your limits and boundaries. And so I realized that I just had a lot of this, a lot of emotions that were stored up that I didn't know what to do with. And now that I have a daughter, I think, you know, especially in the schooling that she has, which really focuses on social emotional learning. I can see how valuable it is to start creating those tools from an early age. But that doesn't mean that you can't, you know, not learn them.

Judy Tsuei 14:43
So when I was in therapy, I was offered this feelings chart, and at the top is the predominant emotion. So there were like, you know, six to eight, like main emotions, and then underneath that all the gradients that you could feel and I looked at this sheet of paper, and I thought, Wait, what, you can feel all of these feelings. What do you mean? Like all I knew were like, maybe two of the top ones. And like that was it. And so starting to become aware that we can have all these gradients of emotions. And then the other thing that I learned in therapy is that feelings are not linear. And they don't always make sense. So they can pop up whenever in the middle of some other activity that has nothing to do with what it is that you're going through right now, it's kind of like when I was teaching yoga to, you know, anytime that we would do a class with a lot of hip openers, a lot of our emotions get stuck in our hips. And so once we open that up, I would often see an emotional response from people because we're also holding those emotions in our bodies, which is, again, why I think mindful movement and just movement in general, especially out in nature, if you can be outside is so helpful, you're processing through it in a different way.

Judy Tsuei 15:45
And I was just listening to a podcast interview with one of the guests who I'm bringing on who's going to be talking about ketamine, as like a mental emotional support therapy modality. And he was saying, like, when he was working in the ER, he had to put up walls because of the trauma that he saw day in and day out. And you don't even have time to move from delivering like terrible news to one family before you have to go address another one. And so he also had to go, you know, through his own journey of figuring out how to reconcile that. And so his journey took him through, you know, shamanic work, it took him through a lot of coaching courses, a lot of different things. So I think that also demonstrates that each of us is so individual and what it is that we need, so to go explore different modalities of what speaking to you right now, and maybe also what's at your growing edge and see, you know, what can you start to pursue that might be really helpful and you connecting to what it is that you specifically need. So some people are really into EMDR, you know, hypnotherapy or energy healing, or whatever it is, and it could totally look off the wall. I think this goes back to it doesn't need to be accepted by anybody else, because nobody else is living your life. I've been doing all these like peloton hit workouts, the coaches are great. And one of them says like, no one's gonna work out your tissue other than you. And so it's like such a good reminder of like, Yes, that is true. Like, I need to be the one who's gonna be responsible for this.

Judy Tsuei 17:03
So I think that, you know, figuring out, like, how can you express these feelings in ways that feel safe, because initially, it's probably not going to feel safe, it's probably gonna feel very terrifying. And even in the current relationship that I'm in, I've had to really practice over and over again, of how to find that safe and secure place. And thankfully, my partner has been remarkable in that and super communicative. And, but I can see that my pattern is to regress and hide and then just be like, I don't need anybody, I'm not going to rely on anybody, I don't need anything. And so you know, starting to understand yourself really well, that quote, Know thyself, which by the way, I'm obsessed with the show Ted lasso. So if anybody's watched it, he like says that line in the show, and he's like, Know thyself in this moment, that's like a joke, but it's true. So knowing yourself, and then allowing yourself giving yourself permission to explore whatever it is, for me, one of the best way that I've ever found to express my feelings is through art therapy. And keep in mind, I cannot draw at all like, I can draw a stick figure, maybe. But I can definitely collage and I can definitely bring a lot of materials together to make something.

Judy Tsuei 18:16
And it was through art therapy that I actually had, you know, a break down to have a break through, like, I started crying, I am not one of those people who cry in public. It is rare that I still, like cry, have to watch a sad movie in order for me to access this emotion sometimes, but again, that's what I need. That's how I do it. And then you grow and evolve from there. And, you know, I always try to remind myself that what works one time, may not work the next time, but that's why we keep learning and growing. So we can figure out like, okay, so where, what are the tools that I can rely upon in that moment.

Yong Pratt 18:48
And so many things that you share in this process, as I'm listening, there are so many parallels to what we need to uncover in our lives that translate into our business are the things that we're holding back on ourselves in our businesses. I know I've done that, too. Again, this this fear of not wanting to stand out, like that was just a core identity I had growing up and how do I now unlearn that, and I love that you talk about different modalities. And because it worked one time does not mean that will work the next time you try it.

Yong Pratt 19:17
So I think we're hard on ourselves in so many different ways. But especially when it comes to uncovering the emotions, uncovering these old stories, discovering these patterns we have in our lives, there has to be so much openness, and so much fluidity. I feel and we have to let go of so many things. And I think this is why many of us don't go down this route. willingly because there's just these big messes we don't really want to deal with against we dealt with them once or we thought we did. But like you said, we're often repressing them in our body. So the idea of getting out in nature and using movement mindfully, not in any sort of structured way. If you want it to be structured, awesome, do that. But for most of us, using movement, to be that space where we can let go of other things, that's such a beautiful idea for us all to really consider today. So if you're listening, and you're, you're outside, or you're inside, you're inside, I want you to go outside and just take in that air and move.

Yong Pratt 20:20
However, it feels good for you just whether that's blowing in the breeze or standing on one foot or stretching to your side, we got a new puppy recently, and I'm always in awe that he's always stretching. And I think there's so many things that we forget that we forget to stretch, just like we forget to breathe when we're anxious. And we have to consciously remind ourselves that God has given us so many wonderful practices to go and do, but movement I feel is kind of at the core, if we can get our bodies involved our minds, I feel for me anyway, my mind is usually a little more willing to be open and to give up things and to feel things when my body is involved in that.

Judy Tsuei 21:02
Yeah, and I wanted to point out, you said, like, you know, it is a practice the emotions that are going to come up or just this practice of life. I think when I used to teach yoga a lot, too, I'd say like, this is a practice and the practice isn't what's happening in the four corners of your yoga mat. When I was in therapy, it was not in the four corners of the Office of the therapist room. It's out in the world, like that is the practice. And so there, that's been really challenging. And even just this last weekend, I had these like experiences with my parents who again, I have learned to have much more compassion. And it's been a challenge to be raised in a culture that's completely the antithesis of the culture that they were raised in, you know, so they're like, born in China, fled to Taiwan, they grew up in Taiwan, then they came to the States, but I grew up in the States. And I've actually gone back to both of those countries. And so a lot of the values are diametrically opposed. And it's hard to take expectations from one set of culture to put that lens on someone else.

Judy Tsuei 21:57
And so you know, even now, I was like, I am about to turn 43. How is this still happening to me? How am I still being triggered? And it goes back to the idea of a practice. And I think what you said that suggestion of going outside and just like tuning in, to feel what it feels like and ask and connecting and asking your body what it is that it needs. I don't know how often we give ourselves permission to do that. And to be able to do it in a way where you're not judging it like, Oh, well, you know, this is such a loopy kind of movement that I want to do. How can I do this.

Judy Tsuei 22:28
So oftentimes, when I was teaching yoga, I would also encourage people to take like two minutes in class, close your eyes, so you're not paying attention to what anybody else is doing. No one's paying attention to you. And just truly move with that kind of intuitive sense of what's going to feel good. On Fridays, on my podcast, I offer mindfulness practices. And one of the recent episodes was dying bug pose, which when I discovered it, I thought it was hilarious, because it totally forced me to like break through what I thought yoga was supposed to be or the seriousness of life. And you basically just lie on your back and stick your arm straight up into the sky, your leg straight up into the sky, like your reverse, you know, upside down or your U shape. And then you take a deep breath in, and then as you exhale, you just shake everything out all your arms and your limbs or whatever. So you're a dying bug. And then you just plop onto the ground. And it was such a playful moment. And so if you were also raised like me, where play was not necessarily something that was very much encouraged, you were serious, you had to achieve certain academic goals, or you know, family responsibilities, whatever it was, I think being able to infuse play into your life, however, that's gonna look small or big is super important. I just had three people recommend to me they're like, have you been in the ocean lately? Because I surf and I was like, No, I haven't. Like, yeah, maybe you should go get some vitamin C, like SEA. So yeah,

Yong Pratt 23:53
Yeah, absolutely. The idea of play. I also didn't have that growing up. I mean, I reached a certain age and, you know, the, the nighttime hugs went away, because I was too old. And going out to play was not something that it was ever encouraged. And I recently interviewed Jeff Harry, who was a play expert on the podcast. Yeah, we did a two part series on play. And he gave so many different ideas. And I was like, that's play, I had no idea because I had never been exposed to that or really explored that I just thought, again, conditioning. Play is for kids, adults don't play. So giving myself some space and some freedom to do things that are more playful like this, you know, I got to go try this dying bug pose. I don't know that I've ever actually done this. But, you know, it reminds me to when I was teaching choreography and dance classes. I love the improvisation classes the best because people could interpret them in so many different ways. And I thought that was so beautiful. Nobody was putting up guidelines. So if you're listening, go find a yoga class. Go find a playful yoga class, go find an improvisational dance class where you can just there's no new rules and I think as adults Going through spaces where there are no rules. It's really challenging. However, on the other side of that challenge is a different person that can walk out of the room than walk in that room.

Judy Tsuei 25:14
Oh, my God, I love that. Yeah, I mean, I feel like play is processing. And if we give ourselves it's what, as a parent, I've learned from my daughter that one of the essential ways she needs to, you know, process through the emotions and the experiences that she has is to be able to play to be physical to get out there. And recently, one of the fellow moms that I know created a group text message, it's adult summer camp, because we're constantly focused on our kids, bringing them to jujitsu classes, skateboarding classes, foreign camp, like whatever it is, and then they're having the greatest time. And then we're just running around like China, like, keep up with them. And so then we were like, wait, wait, wait, hold on a second. I think the parents need like a summer camp too. So now we've, you know, built in surf we've built in yoga classes we've built in, like, you know, working out like whatever it is that we adults also yet a little bit of fun.

Yong Pratt 26:03
What a great idea! That is, I think we need to mass market that to have adult summer camp because yeah, how often do adults just gets it play and, and, and relate to one another on a completely different level? Because a lot of times when you meet other adults is kind of like the surface thing. And like you said, you have the ability to get people to share their stories really quickly with you. Do you have a line for in your chart? Um, oh, yes, I do. Yeah. Do I ask Do I. So yeah, that idea to connect and really easily connect to people. You know, it's one of our gifts. And I love that. So I want to shift the conversation a little bit, I could talk about these topics all day long, I do want to talk about content, because that's such a big part of our business, the idea of creating content for other people to enjoy other people to learn from, to move them closer and bring them into our, to our spheres, so that we can really help them achieve their goals. So my question is to you, what is your favorite way to create content?

Judy Tsuei 27:05
Hmm, I love this. I love it. Because I think that, you know, we've been told, like, structure out your content, plan it all out, like all that kind of stuff, which I think is very beneficial. And I think that there are, it's suitable for certain personality types, or certain business ventures and you know, things like that. I've also realized that just as much as we're learning the rules, or whatever best practices for business, you really got to adopt it for yourself, and like your business and your audience. And that's also been just kind of a journey for me to learn, like, you know, I would love to say that I have it all mapped out to make my life easier.

Judy Tsuei 27:40
But the most powerful content that I created from outliving life, taking a moment to process what's going on, and then being able to share it. Because I'm a generator. You know, for me, content just comes through really, really quickly. It's one of the pieces of feedback that I get all the time, which is like, how do you generate that content? And I was like, how do you not because I feel like when I don't it's a it's a big challenge for me, I feel really like bottled up. But I've had to learn, you know, to, even though that that might be the case that that sparks inspiration. And that's where my most powerful content comes from. Okay, that's great, and how can I still repurpose it work smarter.

Judy Tsuei 28:17
So take some of those tools and techniques and apply it to the way that I'm built. So part of it has been for me recently, you know, building a team around me so hiring an assistant than hiring a few Junior copywriters, and starting to also use that kind of mentorship component that I always look to. And I feel like teaching is such an innate part of what it is that I do that I want to help uplift other people and help them come up in their careers and their goals and whatever it is. And so that has also been just like a really interesting kind of pivot of learning, like, okay, so I can still access and grow and build the content, but maybe I also don't have to be the only point person for it, maybe I can also start to train other people who can, you know, write similarly or who can, you know, bring their viewpoints forward in a way that aligns with my brand and my voice. And so that's been a very interesting journey, too.

Yong Pratt 29:14
This idea of mentorship is really interesting to me because I like you, I find that I'm a teacher, by my very nature. So I've never really thought about that when you bring people onto your team, you become this mentor for them whether or not we know that the idea that there's this exchange of energy, this exchange of knowledge and it can go both directions I think is really sort of a key piece of that so and I love it too that you could you could actually get your team to go source ideas for you right they could go meet they could go to your ears and social media, they could be your eyes watching videos. I just I love that idea.

Yong Pratt 29:49
So the idea that you said that you get a lot of inspiration on the fly doing that cuz I know that society or gurus tell us you need to batch content for Six months. And it sounds really awesome in theory. But then six months later, when you're a different person and your content is still coming out, to me, that feels a little bit disingenuous. I'm just not Yeah, like who I am in that moment. So I don't, I used to have a year of content planned out ahead. I used to be really, really good at that. But any more like, you know, what, if I can be a couple of weeks ahead, that's good enough for me, because then I have the ability to, to mold and move and pivot if I need to, up in that space. So thank you for sharing that. So I want to ask you to how do you make sure that your core values your authentic self is being translated in your content? Because again, there's that conditioning that comes up and says, Wait, that's a topic we're just not going to talk about where we talk about it, it's only going to be surface level? How do we give ourselves permission to really talk about what we want to talk about and stay true to who we are.

Judy Tsuei 30:56
So we're currently working on a memoir, and the book coach that I've been working with has told me, you know, you have to first think about your muse, which I think if you translate it into business, it's who your target audiences and who you're speaking to. But, you know, secondly, making sure that as you're creating this content, and being very vulnerable, and deep and honest, because the memoir, you know, it's a prescriptive memoir, so it's taking stories and experiences that I've had, and then sharing the lessons that I've learned along the way through them. But also making sure that I'm not re traumatizing myself, nor my traumatizing my reader by sharing this information. So I think that making sure that healing, and you know, whatever the growth opportunity is, like you being a responsible leader in that, and you making sure that it's not like, you have to package it perfectly, I'm not saying like, you have to, like, put this content out. And it's got to be pretty wrapped in a bow and like you already know, the conclusion, because that's not how life works. And I think that part of what I'm hoping to do is by being open and transparent, that we break through, like what social media can create.

Judy Tsuei 31:58
So instead starting to see like someone's humanity, and at the same time, you know, not making it someone else's problem, like, we're not going on there to complain about our lives. But instead, we're going on there to like, you know, share our process of how we're moving through this, and then what we're learning or, you know, where you still have questions, and then just making sure that you're being a responsible creator in that way. I think that that is very important. And I think that also, you know, I think one of my key superpowers has always been to the very authentic like, you would, I would always joke, like, you would see it on my face, if I was not happy, I don't have the ability to like, hide that. Even though I, you know, was trained, and I learned it, but then I realized, like, my inherent nature is to not do that, I will just get very quiet. So I won't like, you know, be talking shit, excuse the expletives. You had to say it at the beginning of the show, too. I was like, Oh, my gosh, that's right, like my podcast has an expletive in it. But, um, at the same time, you know, just, I think that just from my own personal experience of the more that you like, just peel back the curtain a little bit and let people see like that you are a real human being in personal settings, and in professional settings, I feel like that's never put me down a wrong path. In fact, it's really been such a benefit and an advantage.

Judy Tsuei 33:22
Because, again, you're creating those meaningful connections. So I have people who've been following my newsletter for years, so I've never met, I have people who've been, you know, in my facebook group, or like on social media, and just sending me these really personal messages, about their lives. And I think that that's such an honor and a gift that someone feels that safe and trusting of me, considering we've never met in person, you know, like, and it's only through the power of my words and the content that I put out there. But even when I used to publish a lot for like my degree, and and all these other platforms, I'd have readers reaching out to me too, and I would always remind myself, too, that for every person who's reaching out to you, there's so many other people who feel the same way. But they just didn't take the time or the energy to send you that message. But if you get one of those, like positive, affirming, you know, pieces from someone, I put it up on a praise wall, I like, print it out, I stick it up. Because being an entrepreneur can be very lonely, especially if you're doing the type of work where you're supporting other people and empowering other people. You know, you can definitely have doubts that imposter syndrome and everything else can come through.

Judy Tsuei 34:23
So what can you do as a practice to like keep yourself elevated? So yeah, when it comes to like being authentic, like, whatever your growing edges, this is also another reminder is, someone told me before that, and this was years and years ago that whatever you publish is going to live forever on the internet somewhere. I mean, just imagine those people who've like broken up with other people and then trying to get all your Facebook images off or like what it's like, it's a bear. So even though we're writing to our consciousness right now, and of course, we're going to grow and evolve as a person source. And our ideas might change. And my friend was just quoting this religious leader that she follows. And she said that this person had gone from like a very devout person in the faith to being a complete polar opposite. And so, you know, I think Glenn and Doyle does a lot of that same stuff, too. She shares with you where she was where she is now.

Judy Tsuei 35:18
But just to be responsible in terms of how can I be at my growing edge when I'm creating this content? And how can I be responsible for like, you know, how I feel now I'm being really authentic and true. And just also knowing and having that compassion and that grace that in the future, you might have a different viewpoint? Are you going to be okay with that, like, you know, my neighbor always says, like spacing, Grace, spacing, Grace. And then I'm going to curse one more time. But when I was living in Koi, I met this girl who, you know, she's a yoga teacher, and we were talking, she was on my first friends. And at dinner one night, she said, I mean, don't future fuck yourself. And I was like, Ah, that's a really good way to put it. Like, we're not living, you know, and hopefully not like so much that you're anticipating the future and like trying to, and avoiding being present. But also just being cognizant, like, there is a future self out there of you. Like, yes, you know, how do you want to feel, then?

Yong Pratt 36:16
Yeah, and the term you use be a responsible creator, I think that's a really just a good reminder. Maybe we need to put that word up on our wall too, just to remind us that, yes, we want to share, but I've seen people take it too far to where when you read their posts, or you see him on video, I sometimes get triggered by them, because they're showing too much. Is it just too revealing? And I know that I've personally struggled with, how much do I share? Like, how much do I want to put out there Am I going to feel like this later, because I know in my business life, I've taken so many pivots and and while I still 100%, believe in everything I've ever created. But thinking about that future you and is that message you're sharing right now, going to number one, put you in a good light in the light that you want to be seen in, versus something that could be triggering to someone and we can definitely all be triggering to other people. I'm not saying never do that, or Judy's not saying never do that by any means.

Yong Pratt 37:11
Just be responsible and, and take ownership of what you are creating. And by doing that, taking ownership and thinking about that muse, that target audience, those two things combined are a really powerful formula for all of us to take from this day forward and think about, okay, what I'm creating, here's a space I want to create from because it's so easy just just to create in the moment, because we feel like we have to versus being really present and sharing authentically, and sharing the journey that we are going through in a way that's going to really benefit or showcase something that we truly believe in.

Judy Tsuei 37:53
Yeah, and if you need a check and balance, go back to the core values that we talked about at the very beginning. And I have different core values for like, my personal life, my relationship life, and then my professional life. And I mean, there's some overlap. But you know, there are different priorities too, for like, which core values are most meaningful in this phase of my life in this particular experience, or whatnot? So if you're ever in question of like, what it is that your posting, you know, going back to the core values of why you're doing what it is that you're doing, like does it fit? Is it in line with all those things? And there are definitely times where, like, I've had other people read my writing before I publish it just to make sure. Before I recorded a podcast episode, you know, things like that. So I do have those checks and balances in place, just to be sure when I have a question.

Yong Pratt 38:39
That's a good point to having someone on our team or someone in our tribe that we can call upon and say, does this resonate? Does it sound like me? Am I staying true and authentic to who I am? Because sometimes without those checks and balances, we can go a little bit outside of what our core values would say, Judy, I could really continue to you for so long, we could talk for hours and hours, I am sure. I do want to make sure that we're being conscientious of time. And I want to have your social media be a demonstration of how you put your core values into action. So where is the best place on social media, we're on the on the internet, that people can come see you putting your core values and your authentic self into action.

Judy Tsuei 39:22
I love that. So there's two different you know, kind of ventures, the wild hearted words is where I've done a lot of strategic content marketing with all of my clients, and so on Instagram, it's kind of also where I've used it as just a personal space to kind of share my journey into everything from motherhood, entrepreneurship, to relationship to whatever it is. So that's like a very authentic kind of view of me. And then in the F*ck Saving Face Podcast. There's a corollary website as well. It's fun, they'll be you. But I published episodes three times a week. So the first day Monday is going to be a personal essay so you can really get a sense of you know, writing and Storytelling there once is an interview with an expert that elaborates on the theme that I set forth on Monday. And then Friday is a mindfulness practice. That's kind of the healing, wrap it all up together for the week that we've, you know, finish up for whatever we whatever conversation we started on Monday. So that's another really great way to kind of just see storytelling in a different kind of way, and content creation in a different kind of way.

Yong Pratt 40:22
Amazing, I will definitely put all of those in the show notes. But I just want to say thank you so much, Judy, I've had such a fun time reconnecting with you catching up about where life has taken us in so many different directions over the past couple of years. And just want to thank you for showing up authentically, and being an example for how other people can show up in their businesses by being who they truly are, by living into their human design, if they know that, and just really using the creations they put out into the world really be that Guiding Light and beacon for other people to find them. So thank you so much.

Judy Tsuei 40:56
I love it. Thank you.

Yong Pratt 40:59

Finding your Soul Purpose with Uma Girish

Finding your Soul Purpose with Uma Girish

[0:00]  Turn up the volume and grab a pen. Today we’re diving into intention, energy, alignment, serendipity, and of course, Human Design. Continue the discussion 👇

[2:12]  Meet Uma Girish a spiritual mentor for women who are ready to find their life purpose. She helps them to hone in on their dreams so that they can live the next chapter of life with passion, purpose, and joy.

[3:23]  Celebrating and planning for success in the new year Uma-style 

Questions to guide you:

  • What do I want to call in this year? 
  • Who do I want to be? 
  • How do I want to show up? 
  • What’s the energy with which I’m going to meet this year?  

[5:00]  The wholeness of life. Intention versus goals and why Uma prefers the former

[7:11]  How to set intentions with the right energy.

“The energy of fear drives away the energy that love always draws in.”
– Uma Girish

[9:50]  Shifting energy and the miracles that can happen when you do. 

“I am not the brilliant coach or mentor who is saying all the wonderful things and giving all the wonderful insights. I’m just being a channel for the divine to come through me to flow through me.” – Uma Girish

[11:55]  

“The best thing you can is to get out of your own way and just let that universal energy pour through you.” – Uma Girish

[13:35]  Working hard and struggling with deservingness verus letting go and embracing simple and easy. 

How do you define alignment and how do you use them. They’re your intention. Your energy to get to alignment.

[15:03]  Alignment through Human Design 

“When things are flowing, when you feel lit up, when all the doors that you want open up effortlessly, and you get the thing you desire, you’re in alignment.” – Uma Girish

If energy and intention are in place, alignment is a natural result, you can’t go wrong.”

[18:21]  “When we are in alignment, the most amazing synchronicities and serendipities happen.” 

“Imagination gets a bad rap but imagination is a gift from the divine, to help us live in that space of alignment.” – Uma Girish

[23:41]  Applauding her parents for their encouragement to write, speak, and tell stories

[25:06]  Encouraging our kids to explore and lean into their gifts 

[25:55]  â€śI believe a lot in synchronicity and serendipity. I know when something appears three to four times in my life, I’m meant to pay attention to it.”

How Uma discovered her Human Design and how it’s helped her to understand her gifts as a Projector [same as Yong]. And letting go of the shame around not being a doer and living into her role as a guide.

[29:04]  How being a Projector has changed the way Uma works in her business and how she serves others 

The way Uma now creates her social media content as a role model

[35:26]  Staying in your own lane and finding your Soul Purpose through Human Design 

“You are your purpose. You don’t have to find it”. 

“We think if we have someone else’s map we’ll be successful. But we are failing. And the reason we are failing is that someone else’s map is not going to guarantee our success. We have our own map and that’s what Human Design shows us.”

[39:30]  Differentiating between our conditioning versus our human design 

[42:01]  Who are you? What makes you tick? What do you dream about? What are the longings of your heart? How do you want your life to be? You’ll find this and more in Uma’s new program, Meet Your True Self launching in January 2021

[44:02]  â€śWhen you own your life purpose, anything that you invest in you, you are in that seat and cultivating that seed of your purpose. So how can that ever be wrong?”

“When you spend money on improving yourself, on expanding your knowledge, on expanding your energy, on learning a new skill, it will always, always, always multiply. It has a multiplier effect and it serves the world. It’s not only an investment in yourself, it’s an investment in everyone you touch.”

[45:35]  Connecting with Uma on Planet Internet

https://umagirish.com

https://www.instagram.com/umamentor/

https://www.facebook.com/umawrites/

[46:30]  Uma’s advice on building a business based on the real you:

“Everything that you are. Everything that you stand for. Everything that you believe in. Everything that matters to you, is what will impact your business. So you are a reflection of your business. So it’s really important to get clear on your values.”

[49:11]  Share your biggest takeaways or favorite Uma-ism 👇

You're listening to Episode 316 of the podcast. Today, we're continuing our discussion into Human Design, and how you can use it to Amplify Your Awesome™ with our second of three guests, Brittia Kubeczka. If you have questions about Human Design or want to connect with Britta directly, come on over to today's show notes at www.YongPratt.com/316.

Have you ever felt like there was something missing in your business, something holding you back from the success that you're seeking? If so, you are not alone. For nearly 20 years, that's exactly how I felt as a business owner. It wasn't until I discovered Human Design, that it all became clear. And it turns out that I was the missing piece in my own business. joining me on this journey of discovering the real me and hear stories from other business owners, building businesses around all of their awesomeness. I'm Yong Pratt, and it's time my friend to Amplify Your Awesome™

Yong Pratt 1:10
Oh my goodness, I cannot wait for you to dive into today's podcast. I'm interviewing someone who's been on the show before. However, she's pivoted a lot in her business. And we're gonna dive really deep into Human Design, well as deep as we can in less than an hour's time, right? There are lot of layers, a lot of things to really dive into. But we have such a good conversation about Human Design, what it is, how to use it to build better relationships, how to connect with people better, and most importantly, how not every type of Human Design is meant to show up in the way that is portrayed online. And this is really huge. This is the part for me that when I learned about my Human Design, and I'm a Projector, so you can learn more about that, through this episode. When I learned I was a projector, and I was not meant to do all the things and be on doing everything and hustling and, and really adhering to what is expected when you're having a business online and doing all the things showing up having all the energy waking up early go into bed late, when I discovered that it was not how I was designed, and it was okay to not be designed like that. And I could still show up and be my authentic self. It was literally like the lights went on. All of a sudden, business became much more enjoyable, and life became much more enjoyable. And being able to just be me and relax and not have to hustle every day has literally changed everything in my business. If I were just to compare my business in the few months that I've known about human design, from February until now I'm recording this episode in October, not very many months have passed. However, I've grown an immense amount in this time. And this episode with our guest Brittia Kubecza is really going to blow you away because we dive into so many facets of Human Design and really set the stage for how important understanding about ourselves, knowing more about ourselves, allows us to show up differently. And as the best version of ourselves in life and in business. I cannot wait for you to dive in.

Yong Pratt 3:39
Hey, Hey, everyone. Welcome back to The Amplify Your Awesome™ Podcast. I am so excited you're tuning in today because we're talking about a topic that has come into my life pretty recently but has really dramatically shifted, how I run my business how I show up every day. And today's guest is someone who's been on a parallel journey. She's been on the podcast before and we talked about something very different. So today I'm excited to introduce you to Brittia Kubecza. Now let me tell you a little bit about Brittia. Now we've known each other for a couple of years now at least. And in that time, I've seen her do some really pretty big pivots. Fhis most recent pivot and she'll explain why she's doing it and and how she's going to be showing up from now on. It really just speaks volumes about the ways in which we as online entrepreneurs, especially women are expected to show up online and why if we're doing that sometimes it doesn't resonate. So let me tell you a little bit about Brittia. So Britta is a wife, a mom, a free spirited cowgirl, a wild hearted life coach, Human Design expert, and an ultrasound technologist. She was born and raised in Southern California and moved to Texas in 2005 to pursue her higher education, and to nurture her country roots, which is something I can absolutely grab ahold of, because I just love that about Brittia a nd this wild spiritedness. So Brittia, I am so glad you're bringing your wild spirit, and all things, Human Design and online business to this conversation today.

I'm so glad to be here, too. I, as you said in there, that we've known each other for a long time. And it just feels so right that we reconnected on this path. And in this way, and I'm so excited to talk to you today.

Yong Pratt 5:34
Absolutely. It's so funny, because it was just probably a couple of months ago, I think I saw one of your posts on Facebook. And I thought, oh, what? Brittia knows about human design as well. Because I've talked a little bit about it here on the podcast, and my journey to discovering the real me and how human design has really played an integral part in helping me to understand the best ways for me to show up as a person, and the best ways for me to show up as a business owner. So I want to go back a little bit and talk about how you discovered Human Design, and how it's really impacted your life till now.

Yong Pratt 6:12
Yeah, so I tell people that I discovered it by accident, and I really did. And it was one of those things that people talk about. It's like it found me, you know, I wasn't looking and it found me. And that's, that's really in, in all honesty, how it happened. Excuse me. I saw a post from somebody. And, and it just had alignment. That was what I was thinking, I just felt out of alignment. I knew that the path that I was on just had no I couldn't see into the future on that path. And I was like, something needs to shift, I need something I'm looking for something, what is it? What is it? And then Human Design, just like I said, it just showed up, I had no clue what it was. But once I started to, like, learn about it and figure out, you know, my profile, my type, and it was like, a ton of bricks just slapped me across the face. And I was like, Oh, my gosh, this is exactly what I've been waiting for and looking for. And it was like, that weight just lifted off my shoulder. And I was like, This is it, I have to share this with everybody. Everybody needs to know this and feel this. And because what I experienced was like nothing that I've experienced in the five years that I've been in the self development world in the world of coaching. In the world of online business and entrepreneurship. It's just so different. And it gave me something that I could really hold on to. And it was it was that. I don't even want to say permission. But it was like I felt more seen heard and understood than I have in probably my entire life. It was it was literally everything I've known and know about myself. It was like seeing it written out in this book about me. And it was so cool. So that's where I am now.

Yong Pratt 8:05
No, and I can totally relate to so many of those points. Because I think in a lot of ways Human Design also found me. One of my podcasting students had said, Hey, I just interviewed this interesting person on my podcast, and she's an expert in Human Design. And I had never heard of Human Design. And this was in February of this year of 2020. And I kind of jumped in and like you said, it feels all of a sudden, I was talking about I relate it to you know, putting on your comfiest pair of jammies and just feeling so, so aligned and so right with everything that that is all about us, right? So I no longer felt like I had to try to be like everybody else because I could finally embrace everything that was true about me about the way I was on the inside. That I was really scared to, to show up with, especially online and bare that part of my soul. Because, you know, when I started business more than two decades ago, it was all about, you know, I want to build this business. I want to feel corporate. I want to be hidden away. I want to be I want to run it like a big business, even though I was a small business. So I really removed myself from the business. Human Design, when it came along. It was like, it was like a smack upside the head or the bricks falling on you because all of a sudden, you think, wait, how how's that possible that someone else knows this, about me how to do that, and especially things that I've always known about myself that just wasn't really quite sure what to do with? That's how human design was for me as well. So I love that. So for everyone listening, if they haven't heard my story of Human Design, or know what human design is, can you explain to us what it really is?

Brittia Kubeczka 9:45
Yes. So it's it's more like a tool, if you will. It's a tool or a system. And it's like, there's this this spiritual piece of technology right that allows you to kind of take a peek or, like look into, or look at your soul contract, kind of, in order to confirm the person that you are like, it's already written in stone, it's already there. It's been there since the day you were born. But it kind of helps explain if you will, like, why you're here on this planet, and what lessons you're here to learn and what gifts you're here to share, like what gifts you hold within that, that you're put here, like, that's what you were designed to do. And it kind of combines these ancient teachings from astrology, and it has a Kabbalish tree of life in it. And it mixes a little bit of Chakra systems and the I Ching, but my favorite part as as a science girl, if you will. And it mixes modern science of biochemistry, genetics, in theory and theoretical quantum physics, it mixes that with this spiritual world. So, and I've kind of explained it to other people who are more of like, spirituality in the sense of God and church and that sort of thing, that it has that too, because if God created the universe, and in the world, and He created you and me. Then he knows exactly how he designed us. And this puts it in a way that we can like, grasp and see it. You know, it's like that, that blueprint of our life of that blueprint of our soul, and who we were designed to be, it's like, he just handed it to us on a piece of paper, where he's like, Look, I told you, I put this in your heart. And I told you, this is why I put it there. So you can see it all written out. And, and really, that's kind of the gist of it. It's, it's just that tool or that, that system, if you will, that helps you kind of Peel off the layers of who you really are.

Yong Pratt 11:51
And as a fellow science lover, science nerd, I found these things really fascinating because it did take these scientific principles and merge them with kind of the woowoo side. So whatever side of the fence you're on, maybe you're in the middle someplace, there's something that's going to appeal to everyone. And it really is like opening up a page in your diary thinking, oh, oh, my gosh, yes, I react like this in this situation. And if you look back, and they always say hindsight, is 2020, right, you can look back and through the lens of Human Design. It's been fascinating to go back and say, Oh, well, I know why that didn't work. Or I know why that was really successful. Because it all aligned with my design. So can we talk about the different types of people in the human design world because there's a lot of different layers, and we can peel them back a little bit. But let's talk about the overall general different types of ways that we can show up in this lifetime.

Brittia Kubeczka 12:48
Yeah, so as the as we've kind of talked about a little bit already, there's, there's different layers, so you could kind of start to peel back each layer at a time. And I think the first layer would would start with really what your type is. So there are five types. There's a Manifester. And there's a Generator. There's a Manifesting Generator, a Projector, and a Reflector. So each type is kind of the big picture of kind of how you operate. And when you go deeper into that, it's, it's more about centers and where you get your energy from. And so each one is different in kind of what lights their soul on fire and how they get their energy and that lifeforce energy.

Yong Pratt 13:36
Yeah, it's so fascinating. And when I first discovered my human design, and found out that I was a projector, and Brittia is also a projector. So when we found each other, and we were both this type, all of a sudden, a lot of things made sense. And earlier at the beginning of this episode, I had said sometimes, you know, when we look through the lens of Human Design, a lot of what we see online are people who are showing up and they're going going going hustling, hustling, hustling. However, that doesn't fit with every type. And projectors definitely do not fit in that type. So Brittia, I would love for you to share this story, because I think it'll illustrate the point of what I what we're talking about as far as the hustle. Because, you know, when it comes to online business, we think we have to, I think we talked about waking up at five in the morning going to do these things working the entire day, you know, going to bed late, burning the candle on both ends and repeating the process. And for you and I as projectors. When we do that, we get exhausted we get burnt out. And again looking back over my life, I can see the trend because I was trying to show up with way more energy or react to the energy around me because there was a lot of energy. My husband is a generator. I am pretty sure my mom is a manifesting generator. I've not run her chart, but just in the ways that I've learned about human design and how the different types show up in the energy, energy they bring. I want to hear the story about you Growing up in a household of generators really and, and how that affected the way you perceived yourself before Human Design and how you perceive yourself now after knowing your human design,

Brittia Kubeczka 15:11
Yeah, so for the longest time, I mean, I, I've hired many coaches and and this has come up with every coach that I've hired, I'm like, I just can't get myself up and moving in the morning. Like, is it that I don't care about my business? Is it that, like, I don't have the drive to make this work? Like, I, for so long thought that it was something wrong with me. And why can't I do business, the way that all these people are doing it in the way that they're saying to do it, and just get up early and just hustle and, you know, as somebody. I still work a full time job. So as somebody who, quote unquote, side hustles, and has a full time job, I struggled so much with this idea of just hustle, you know, just hustle it out, just, you know, work it all, you can do all the things all the time. And, and I tried to, I did, I tried to. And as she said, My mom is a generator, my sister is a generator, I grew up in a house, and still I have a Manny Gen son, and a generator daughter, my husband's a manifester. But like there's just so much energy around me all the time. So I kind of used it.

Yong Pratt 16:23
I can see now too, that I've kind of used it as a coping mechanism just to stay busy. And you kind of forget all the other stuff that's going on. And so a lot of people, we have to talk about conditioning influence as well. When we talk about human design, because the way that you were raised or the way that you're told to tone something down, or you know, maybe you're you're just a big out there kind of person, and you've been told your whole life, not to be so big not to be so loud. Or maybe you're like us, and we're more of the quiet like we need time to ourselves. And you know, we need to to regenerate because we don't have that lifeforce constantly within us. So, I grew up feeling like I had to always be doing something in order to be successful, or in order to win or in order to, you know, all of these in order to use that you had to be a specific thing. And you had to constantly be working and going. And when I finally saw this in writing, I was like, hallelujah! Like, it was it was just like the heavens opened up for me. And I'm like, Thank You, Lord. Like you just gave me that permission to, to sleep and to rest. And like, this is why I can't constantly push. I can't constantly go cuz I'm not built like them. And my sister, for instance, I mean, she has an amazing Instagram, she does all the things side hustles and has a job. And she's redoing her whole house. She's a Generator. She had a week off of work last week, and I told her, I'm like, you're gonna get so much energy from doing what you do in her house. So she spent an entire week redoing her house. She's so creative. And that's where she gets more energy. That's how Generators and Mani Gens work is that when they do the things that they love, they get more energy, and they can keep going and keep going and keep going. And she was like, you're so right, like, I just feel so energized and lit up. And I have all this time to do what I love to do. And that just keeps them going. Whereas Projectors, we don't have that energy. Once we run out, we run out for the day. And, and and the same can go for Mani Gens and Generators, they can also run out of energy. But they just are able to tap into that, that sacral generator for a little bit more.

Yong Pratt 18:48
So many parallels here as far as growing up and feeling like we always had to go go go go go and to rest was being lazy. And if you're not in constant motion, then there's something wrong. And if you're not struggling and hustling, then that can't be wrong. Because of course business and life can't be easy. It has to be challenging and hard. And and so when Human Design came along to and you have a hallelujah moment, I had the same thing. Like, Oh my gosh, yeah, it was all of a sudden in writing, saying, okay, you are a projector, your energy shows up differently. You have a maximum amount of energy per day. And you have to be really efficient with it. And so it's so interesting. As I dig into what I love to do, and what I love helping entrepreneurs do in their businesses and repurpose their content. This was something I had to do for myself because I needed to get the most done, but to preserve energy in the process. So being able to tap into systems and making sure I have really good workflows. And I really have a designated time when I know I can be busy and when it feels the best to be busy because sometimes during the day like mornings, I would not call myself a morning person by any means. I mean, I get up relatively early now and I just started making a new habit of going for a walk pretty much first thing in the morning. And doing that will give me energy. But then I'll come home and have a cup of coffee and do something creative. So literally, it's not till like 10 or 11, that I feel like I'm ready to dive in and do something productive because by then I've recharged, I've charged my batteries enough to go do my important work. And I'll do it for a couple hours. And then I'm out because I know when I reach a certain point in the day, I just know, I mean, I could keep plugging away and I used to, but you just used to always just be busy just to be busy, it was non productive right? Now I know like, okay, I can be productive for two, maybe three hours a day, three or four days a week, not more than that. If it's more than that, I can feel it. I start to get feeling like I'm sick. I get a sore throat like something happens in my body to remind me that, yeah, you need to slow down. And so human design has been such an amazing tool in so many respects. So if people are out there listening, and they're thinking, Wait, I want to know more about Human Design. And can you point them in the direction of a resource, maybe at your website, where you can show them how they can tap into this, this book or this, like the scroll or however you want to visualize human desire this map for you this blueprint, where's the best place to do that?

Brittia Kubeczka 21:16
Yeah, so everyone can take it for free. And the to find out your body graph, it's all free, you can go to www.mybodygraph.com and it'll give you a body graph. And tell you your type and your strategy and, and all those things that will have it laid out for you, which might look like a lot the first time you're looking at it. So that's where I come in to kind of help explain the things and dive deeper into the meanings behind it all and and how you can use it like how to turn it into your strategy or how to turn that into your power moving forward with it. And so you can find me on Instagram, I'm just Brittia K. B-R-I-T-T-I-A-K - just like it sounds. Britta K on Instagram or Facebook, and then website is coming soon, it should be at BrittiaK.com. Depending on when this this launches, airs that it might be up for you, but and lots of resources. I'll be going live or more stories on Instagram to kind of help you dive into that. But I'm also available for readings, mapping, all of those things. So just reach out to me.

Yong Pratt 22:20
Yeah, and you definitely want to reach out to Brittia because we were talking about human design. And I think I was confused on something. And she did a reading for me. And I thought, Oh my gosh, it's one of those moments where you listen to something, you hear something and you get goosebumps, and you know that it's speaking to you. I had that moment she Voxered with me and and told me all these things. And I thought, Oh, my gosh. And the funny thing is when when you did my reading Brittia, the idea of dance and movement and music came up so frequently, because that's what I did in my former life. I was a professional dancer, that I ran a performing art school. So even to this day, though, this idea of movement and music is still so important. And I trying to figure out now how to bring that back into my business at this level, because I feel like I need to share that. Again, I've put that into dormancy for a while. But it's really time to share that part of myself with, you know, everyone who I want to connect with. And I know that you, you just created this brand new Instagram page. And yeah, that's a resource for people to talk about human design, and really just show up in a space for them where they literally are given permission. And I know, permission has a weird connotation in our culture, right? We're not asking for permission. But all of a sudden, when you read something about yourself, and you have this deeper understanding, and there's an aha moment, it's like, oh, I can really be free to be me. I can show up in the way that makes sense for me. I can tap into my energy, the way that I'm meant to. I can show up and do the things I meant to. And it's been such a fascinating journey with me too. I pulled all the charts, of course on my husband and my girls and just to see it unfold now that I have a better understanding. And I'm no expert by any stretch of the imagination. But I'm just curious about this because it has been such an eye opening experience to learn this. So now that you know this Brittia and you are raising these beautiful kids and your hubby, how has knowing your human design, and there's changed the way that you relate to each other?

Brittia Kubeczka 24:25
Yeah, I want to touch on one thing first, and and instead of permission, I actually read a post the other day, and it was confirmation that word confirmation came up and and that's really what it is more than asking for permission or getting permission to do things. We're all grown adults here, right?

Brittia Kubeczka 24:43
Like we can make our own decisions and we make our own choices and, and we know most of the time what's good for us and what's not, but it's confirmation. It's saying like, like me and you both said it was like we know ourselves, but it was that confirmation of like seeing it and writing or like hearing it from somebody else that's like, Oh, thank you, you're like, yes, that is me. And then you get to grab a hold of it, and then you get to own that power, and then you get to move with it. So it's more of confirmation, I would say then permission, but, and you brought it into it, you lead into it, but I was gonna say, too, it's more than just about business. And it's more than just about like, you owning your power and having that kind of confidence. But it does, it rolls over into relationships into motherhood, or, you know, your your family, and my husband is very non woo, okay. He's a Texas man. A true Southern man does not buy into any of the woo woo mystical stuff. And, and I actually had a conversation with him about human design the other day. And, and, and was, he was kind of like, still a little iffy. And I would got to explaining a little more about, we could talk more about centers and stuff, but he has a defined throat, and this man can talk to a rock. I mean, he can talk to anybody, for any amount of time. And I am not a talker, unless I get around somebody with that defined throat. I'm usually very quiet, very closed off, I think more than I speak. And, and so I was explaining to him just that little bit. And he was like, okay, but what about this, and what about this. And I was able to kind of explain about the conditioning. And, and imagine if you were told all your life, that that you need to speak more, or maybe you don't need to speak as much, but that's how you were designed, you know, that's, that's who you are. And it lets you kind of lean into that more. And so getting him a little more on board and just kind of, you know, dropping little things here and there about this is why you because you're a manifester, and you need to rest and recharge. And but for my kids as well, like, it's really given me so much more understanding of them. And my son is the emotional Mani Gen. And from day one, we have said, Oh my gosh, he is so emotional. He is so emotional. And this is why I mean, he is an emotional being. It's in his design. He's emotionally led, emotionally charged. And, and so in order instead of telling him like, Don't cry, like tough up you know. Be a man, blah, blah, blah, like, instead of doing that, we can now embrace that in him, and let him know that these emotional waves are going to happen for the rest of your life. And that gives him the power to move with it. Instead of saying, like, This isn't how you're don't act like that you're not supposed to cry. You're supposed to be tough, blah, blah, blah, you know, that gives him the power to say, now I can I can learn more about myself. I can. He's five, by the way. So we have a long way to go with this. But you know, really giving him that power and embracing him for who he is and how he was made. And my daughter, she's a generator, bless her heart. She just is constantly on the go, and my projector ness is like, bahh! But she just cannot sit still for the life of her and, and that's it. She does things that that she likes doing. And it gives her more energy, and she just keeps thriving up and charging more. But I understand that I understand why she she is the way she is. Because I can see it all in her chart.

Yong Pratt 28:33
Well, I think it's really fascinating to talk about this energy because my husband is a generator. So I get it like he never stops. When we go on vacation. He just wants to go do more things. And, you know, I'm like, I really just need to, like hang out at the beach or the hotel, I just need to read I need to take a nap. And he's like, I just think it's so weird. People want to go on vacation and take a nap. It's like, well, I don't really love to do that, you know, I'm pretty accommodating and will kind of go as long as I can. But at some point, I need to step back and say, Okay, I gotta stop. But when we think about this energy and this behavior, and we think about school systems, though, here's the big disconnect, right? Because I think I can definitely get on my soapbox here on this one as far as getting labeled with a DD and ADHD and I am not saying that that's not, you know, a diagnosis for some people, for some people. Absolutely. But I think a lot of times this energy gets mislabeled misdiagnosed, because it's easier rather than understanding the what's behind it. Rather than looking at Human Design and Human Design. I feel like you know, I'm immersed in this world. So I see a lot of things about it. But for the for most people, they've never heard of this right. I didn't even learn about it until February. So that's really just a very short time. Yeah, to really dive into this when our kids are having issues in school. Knowing Human Design in your kids and then being able to speak up and and advocate for them in school and say, You know what, my kid is a generator. In order for them to do these things, here's what I know, you know. And when I wrote my first book all about Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences, it goes in line with this so much, because, you know, schools are not designed for every kid.

Brittia Kubeczka 30:16
Yeah

Yong Pratt 30:17
Which I know some people listening are gonna say, but that's not true. It is my belief that schools are only designed for certain kids, because the way that their brains are wired, the way that their human design is, you know, some kids, less than 20% of kids who are in school, are going to excel, because schools are designed specifically for kids who are really good in math, and who are really good in English. And if you fall outside those things, you get labeled quickly. And we're made to feel badly about not excelling in that situation, which I think is such a travesty for kids, because they they don't know. I mean, they're just being who they're meant to be. And unless we are better as parents and understand these things, you know, the more we can understand about our kids and advocate and say, Look, here's the situation, here's how we need to address this, can I help you understand this better? So I think, you know, as parents, we know, our human design, and we know that of our kids, that can only serve to benefit them, to help them grow into the people we know that they can be.

Brittia Kubeczka 31:19
Yeah, I couldn't agree more with you. And, you know, just just that idea alone, of like, kids don't learn the same way. And teachers, I mean, our kids are spending more time with their teachers than they spend with us most of the time, unless you're a homeschooling parent, you know, if you have that luxury, that that's amazing. But my son is with the teacher more than he's with me. And they have such a big impact, you know, on on there. As I mentioned earlier, that conditioning influence of like, this is who you're supposed to be, this is how we're supposed to learn, you know. And unless we are at home doing that deep work with our children of like, no, this is really who you are, this is what you can own. And this is what you can walk in your truth knowing, you know, we have to give them that, because the teachers have 15 of them in front of you, and 20 of them, whatever it is, you know that that's not the teacher's responsibility. It's our responsibility to to know our children and to nurture them in a way that fits who they are. And, and allows them to discover that on their own and really own that part of them.

Yong Pratt 32:32
Yeah, and I think that's really the gift of Human Design. I have to apologize about my phone, because of course, I put it on Do Not Disturb and the phone rings. And of course, I kind of figured it would right. So that was my husband. I will call him back. So don't worry about that. Normally, that doesn't happen. But yeah, I agree that it's the more we know, as parents, the more informed we are, and especially through this lens of Human Design, about understanding the potential. Because I think that human design really taps into what is the potential of every single human on the planet, and understanding more about ourselves and knowing more about ourselves and knowing, just just understanding and and then having the ability to see other people through that lens of knowing. I think if the world if more people in the world would know these things or be willing to learn about them. There could be a whole lot less animosity in this world, which I definitely go for.

Brittia Kubeczka 33:30
Yeah. So So two more top two more things that I was thinking about when you're talking. One is that I I've had a client that I read her daughter's for her as well. And she said it actually changed the relationship with her youngest daughter. Like she just felt a deeper connection with her after knowing her chart, because there she was. She's an emotional generator. And once you know, once you know and understand your life lesson becomes knowing how you affect other people. My husband and my son are both both emotional. I have an open Solar Plexus or emotional center. So I have told him even before I knew Human Design, I feel your energy when you come home in a bad mood, I'm in a bad mood. Like I take on so much energy as a projector. I'm very open. And a Projector so I take on so much energy and and that that goes on to the person with that defined energy center because it's up to you to balance and to know how you're affecting the people around you. So her knowing that she had this power, if you will, you know that she she was affecting literally the energy of her children and how she can kind of monitor that now or how she can lean in with them and teach them lessons of it of this is what I'm going through and this is how I'm handling And it teaches them to do the same. Same thing. So that was one point. And the second point about just the world being a better place is that all of us, you know, we could go into all this woowoo stuff now. But the world is all made up of energy, tiny particles all around you, this is the quantum physics thing, right? Energy is all around us. We connect to the people who fill us up in some way, you know, they always say like, and people come and go into your life and out of your life for a reason, a season or something else, I don't know. But that's what it is. It's our energy connecting with other people and, and somebody else is going to come into your life and fill up a spot that you needed, just like you're going to be in somebody else's life filling up a spot that they needed. And if we could all just see that we're all here to work together and to build each other up instead of take something away. That's not how it works. We're here to fill each other up. And, and if you could understand a little bit more of your design, you might see how you're affecting somebody else's design. And, you know, it gives you so much to work with of like, you know, you may have a closed define throat and I'm able to speak through you I'm literally able to speak through you now, or speak to you more easily because it flows out of me into you, you know, it's just that attraction. And, and a lot of that manifestation stuff just comes with that. Attracting quality, like your vibe attracts your tribe, well, they're really attracted to your energy. It's what's around you, it's what's within you.

Yong Pratt 36:36
Yeah, this idea of energy is so fascinating. And it does definitely goes on the side of Woo. But there's definitely that scientific part of that I can grab on to so again, wherever you are on the side of woo, we're, you know, science. I mean, yeah, Human Design can really fill you up on either side or somewhere. Because I probably am in between, you know, I have two science degrees. So I mean, I definitely have that brain for wanting to know and be curious and want to want to dig in and figure out, you know, why things work. And, you know, this idea of energy is so funny, because it reminds me of a story, which is totally unrelated, but I think, illustrate the point.

Yong Pratt 37:12
So back in college, as an undergraduate, I took organic chemistry, right? It was one of the hardest classes ever taken. But literally, we had these little, these little kits, where you could build these atoms, and you could actually go in there, okay, if these two things if these these elements bond together, what is it going to look like? Right? So it's sort of the same, the same thing, right? I loved that class so much. And I saw something online. I'm not sure who did it. But you reminded me of this where it was an illustration of if everyone lived together in a town, what would each of those five people what were their jobs be because they every everything is equally important, without what kind of person because other work can't get done. So we really do need to rely on each other, just like in organic chemistry, you know, to create bonds with different chemicals. Everything is important, every every part of that chemical reaction is important. And in Human Design, every person, no matter what your design is, we're all meant to do certain kinds of work. But again, having the energy other people in different aspects and areas of our lives is huge. I know for me, personally, when I learned that networking and talking to people, I used to hate the word networking, like I don't want to go to a networking event. I mean, that sounds terrifying to me. I don't want to go do that as an introvert. Like, that was my worst nightmare. But now the ability to understand that, that's how people get to know me. And that's how people come into my world. That's how people come to do work with me is through that relationship and that connecting. And so the weeks when I don't get to connect with people, I feel really energetically low. And now that I understand that I can fill my week with things that fill me up, because I need that energy, you know, because, again, as projectors, we don't have a ton of it. So being able to find people who can fill in those gaps is really important. Just like you said, you haven't you have an undefined throat. I have a defined throat. So I think part of the reason we communicate so well is because of that, right? We're filling in the energetic gaps for each other and be able to, to give to each other and complete the circuit. I guess maybe I can use that analogy.

Brittia Kubeczka 39:22
Yeah, I think that's a great analogy. And that's what it is too, you know. Being able to kind of draw off Mani Gens and Generators that we hang around, like we can, we can draw off their energy because we feel their energy and we can we can take a little bit of it that we need, but then we might have to back off and be like, okay, now I'm gonna hide it my hole. You know, kind of calm down a little bit, and they might still be managing over here. And that's totally okay. Like, that's what, that's what it is. It's just that completion of the circuit, you know, and I too have a bachelor's degree in science of health science. So I mean, I totally dig into all of this. And you can go as far as to seeing which centers connect to which body organs. And as a stenographer, I literally look at people's insides with sound with energy. And, and just knowing the difference that things bounce off, you know different organs differently, and they come back to you. And that's what it is, it's, it's the energy that you're putting off is going to bounce off somebody, and it's going to come back to you, in whatever way you're able to receive it. But knowing you know, what, what center connects to which body organ? And I'm like, well, that's why so many people, you know, have gallbladder disease, or That's why, like, you know, I should start asking them like, is your, you know, heart centered. They'll think I'm crazy. But you know, it really is all connected. And it's so fascinating to me, I could talk about it all day.

Yong Pratt 40:49
Oh, my gosh, it is fascinating now that you're saying this about different organs, and you can see it through the work that you do. I think I'd be totally right, I wouldn't work all the time just to find out actions and talk to people. And that sounds amazing to me. And I know that I know, you're fortunate to get to do that. And I know you're leaning more into this human design world, which I think is awesome, because we get to go on this journey together. And for all of your clients, including myself, who've gotten readings from you. I mean, again, knowing more about yourself is having the power to go out there and showing up and having that confirmation, like you said not the permission, right? Because we're taught from kids to ask for permission. So I think in my head, that word was like okay, permission, but confirmation, like you said, No, I'm your human design, understanding how it all relates, understanding that this exchange of energy in our bodies, and with other people, these are all the things that make this idea of Human Design. so fascinating. There's so many facets, so many layers there. But I just It is so it is so esoterical in my head. I mean, I'm not there yet to where I can understand, I read some things thinking, I don't even think that I understand that. However, I'm curious. And I think this lifetime, the more curious we can be about the people, in our families, the people that we serve in our businesses, I think that's what really drives us forward is having that curiosity and wanting to do these experiments and find out more about ourselves in the process.

Brittia Kubeczka 42:22
Yeah, it's all about connection. We're human, we're mammals, we, we need and we crave and we desire, that connection with other humans. You know, and and I think this human design is just a way to like, see into other people and, and projectors, as a whole, we're meant to be that guy, then we're meant to kind of lead people on their journeys. That's, that's just who we are meant to be. And everything in my design and profile is, says that this is what I'm here to do. I'm here to lead people on their journey and, and I'm the one that's walking up that mountain so I can turn around and help you up as well.

Yong Pratt 42:59
Amazing. Thank you so much for sharing your vast amount of knowledge. I know, you've inspired many more future conversations, and hopefully here on the podcast with you. But this idea of Human Design and understanding and knowing ourselves, and then using that information and applying it having the power to go do these things, having confirmation that it's okay to show up and all of our craziness and our weirdness and our quirks. Those things are things we need to embrace because they help us to differentiate ourselves between other people who may do the same things. And that is okay. But everybody, all of you listening right now...We're all placed on this earth to do really important work. We were not placed here just to, you know, be okay. In life, we're here to really just excel and Human Design is one of the most fascinating tools to help us to understand ourselves. So Brittia, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for coming to be here and sharing your wealth of knowledge in this amazing arena.

Brittia Kubeczka 43:59
Thank you for having me. I'm so glad to share. Like I said it, it does it just lights me up to talk about it. And I hope you guys all discover your designs and tell us tag us in when you take your body graph. Tell us what type you are.

Yong Pratt 44:14
Yeah, absolutely. And when this podcast publishes, you can come over to the website to and share with us there and I'll tag Britta. I'll make sure all of her links are directly on that web page. So you can you can go see what she's up to see how she is exploring Human Design. See how she is helping people. Because just knowing this information about yourself can literally change the way you're showing up the way you feel about yourself, the way you relate to others and most importantly, how you connect with others because that is what the world is about is about connection. So thank you for connecting with me for tm until next time.

Yong Pratt 44:46
