Every month I write a new age, (Aquarian age) Advice Column for Soulacy Magazine.
I thought I'd share a couple of the questions and their answers so you can see the type of thing I get asked and how I answer...
This is a great question. First off, there is no ‘right’ answer to this. Although we live in a time when everyone seems to be the expert on everyone else, the only real expert on you, is you and there is no shortcut to understanding yourself.
That's actually what you are here to discover and learn.
Who are you?
How do you work?
What is your legacy?
What are you here to experience?
There is no one way to manifest. Believing that there is one way or even two ways to manifest is simplistic at best and dangerous at worst.
Also, while I am at it, manifesting isn’t ‘creating’ anything, it's calling forth that which already exists somewhere.
Recently, I have seen a lot of talk about whether someone is a nonspecific or specific manifestor in terms of their Human Design.
And, I want to make clear that there is nothing actually taught about this in the Human Design original teachings, but it is in fact an interpretation of an aspect of the ‘Variable’ concept.
The arrow in the bottom right corner is the personality node variable and some people suggest that if it points left you are ‘specific’ and if it points to the right ‘non-specific’ - sometimes these are referred to as ‘abstract’ and ‘general’ - the idea being that left favours ‘yang’ or ‘masc’ approach and right is more ‘yin’ or ‘feminine’ in its energy.
The idea is that if you are a specific manifestor, you work best when getting really specific about your desire and if you are nonspecific you work best when you tap into the feeling or ‘what kinda thing would delight me’
According to more old school HD teachers, the personality node tells of the individual's perspective as either having a focused (left) or peripheral (right) view of their environment. This aspect of Variable in the original teachings gives insight into what a person is designed to see in their environment.
Nowhere in the source material is it suggested that Nodal Tone has anything to do with one’s auric Type or manifesting/ creating potential. However, because there is much talk right now about being ‘specific or ‘non-specific’ I thought I would share where this theory originated.
In Human Design, “manifesting” is a question of energetics or mechanics. That is, whether one of the body’s motors (Sacral, Ego, Solar Plexus, or Root) can bring its energy directly to the Throat centre where it is articulated into existence.
If I step away from human design for a moment and mix my modalities by stepping into energy body speak - We speak things into existence, by pulling them through our energy bodies from our Soul body, (that lives right in the centre of our being, near our heart) through our negative mind, positive mind, neutral mind, into and out into the 3D physical world, through our 3D physical body.
Each person's desire is truly unique and the way that they manifest will also be based on their energetic design, their ability to emotionally and spiritually alchemise the resistance they have, and their journey with de-conditioning from the cultural, societal and familial conditioning that we are all subjected to.
A key point of Ra’s teaching was that the body is designed to guide the truly differentiated life. This means that each individual has the potential of entering into a totally unique expression of frequency and purpose. Many “manifestation” strategies appear to amplify our unconscious fixation on survival, getting attention, and proving self-worth. As such, this question about how to manifest can often be a distraction from the important process of de-conditioning, where we learn to allow the body to lead and let the mind take its place as a tool, a measurement device, a source of awareness for others, and a witness to life as it unfolds.

Ultimately, we have each been incarnated in human form, at this time in history on this frequency and timeline to experience being human. By which I mean to have an emotional and physical experience (which is only possible in human form) and to learn and expand.
How much control we have over that experience will never be fully known. More and more I believe that our lives are like a choose your own adventure novel; the basic narrative, themes, moral lessons, beginning and end are written, but we get to choose which journey we take at each chapter.
Manifesting for me is actually about tapping into your true desires, by knowing yourself really well. Not wanting what everyone else wants, but listening to your Soul and then uncovering it by aligning your intention, and attention, your energy and your action. De-conditioning, and alchemising to find yourself in alignment with your true and uninhibited self.
I hope this helps,
I am writing this response to you on day one of my cycle while binge watching Grand Designs on Netflix. In the last two episodes the people building houses both took on old ‘wrecks’ of a building and in an attempt to restore them.
The general consensus is that whilst sometimes it is easier to start from scratch, there is a certain beauty and magic in making something new out of what already exists.
My advice is not to get too attached to where you’ll end up specifically but focus on how you want to feel and start saying yes to what truly lights you up and no to anything that is no longer for you.
Stay in touch with your desire and allow it to change as you try things and become clearer on what you like and what doesn’t feel as good in reality as you imagined. Stick to your values and you’ll find yourself as the babe bathing in an ocean beyond your current wildest dreams.
