In this course, Ra investigates Left Strategic cognition, and explains the Left approach and what it means to have a Strategic Personality as a learning process. Through this course, you’ll learn which of the three types of Left Personality you are, and the contribution your personality brings to the consciousness field.
This live 5-week course was originally taught in the Spring of 2009 and was open only to those with Personality Sun/Earth Left orientation. Join Ra for an in-depth understanding of the Left Mind, and the role this approach to cognition will play in the years to come.
This 5-lecture audio course comes with an illustrated eBook transcript and screen recordings of Ra's original classroom presentations. Click on the Lessons tab for descriptions of each of the 5 lessons.
How to find out if you have a Left or Right Mind
To determine your cognitive approach you need only enter your birth data in our free Variable Calculator, which will reveal your Personality Sun/Earth orientation. (You will need an accurate time of birth for this calculation, as the Sun/Earth orientation changes every two hours). On the results page, there are two ways to identify whether you have a Left- or Right-oriented mind:
Approach 1: Chart Properties. If your Variable starts with PR, you have a Right and Receptive mind. If it instead begins with PL you have a Left and Strategic mind.
Approach 2: Your Human Design Chart. The Variable arrow to the top right of the BodyGraph represents the orientation of your Personality Sun/Earth. If it’s pointed to the right, you have a Right and Receptive mind. If it’s pointed to the left, you have a Left and Strategic mind.
The Structure of the Left Personality
What does it mean to have Personality Sun/Earth Left orientation? Ra begins this course with a basic overview of the strategic Personality, explaining the key feature of Left orientation. A map of the Variable grid is laid out as a way of understanding the potential of unique awareness in each human being. If you have a strategic Personality, this lesson will start you on the path of understanding your true unique passenger consciousness.
Themes of Focus
This lesson uses the cognitive Variable map to expound on the three strategic Focusing themes and the ways we conceptualize. It lays the foundation for an in-depth discussion of the Left strategic Variables. The lesson starts with the most strategic focus, the foundation, and its emphasis on detail; it then moves to the 2nd theme and its focus on being deeply absorbed, looking for the new; and finally, on to the strategic focus of assessing circumstances in order to take advantage of them.
Variable Family 1: The First Quadrant
The Variable grid not only lays out the possibilities of the consciousness field expressed by individuals, but also the interconnectivity and the interrelationships within the field. Working from the most strategic, Ra discusses the first Variable quadrant. Learn how one prepares strategic tools for a receptive future and how to develop relationships with the Right.
Variable Family 2: The Second Quadrant
This lesson presents what Ra refers to as the “most human” quadrant, one that is not part of the evolutionary movement. What does he mean by that? Ra explores the part those who carry this quadrant play in our human cognitive achievement, and how they can live out their uniqueness in this changing world.
In the center of the Variable grid we find four Variables which present the intersection, and which carry themes of dilemma and confusion. Ra dives into the uniqueness and complexities of two of the four Variables. Each Variable is set up for a type of conflict, and Ra offers an explanation of how to work with these energies. While these approaches are ultimately quite simple, they are not necessarily easy for the Not-Self.
