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.

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.
Brittia Kubeczka 5:21
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
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
