Kinds of Definition

#

One of the most interesting human phenomena is the connections that happen when people meet. Have you ever wondered why some people seem just to click (and stick) together while others don’t?

With Human Design, you can see the mechanics behind those connections. Why and how we connect can be very complex and deep, but the truth is right there on the surface of the bodygraph for anyone to see.

One of the most important things to understand about why connections (and relationships of all kinds) happen and last between us is that some of us function more independently than others by nature. Connection possibilities depend on the particular configuration of your Human Design bodygraph definition.

Definition is what is consistent and reliable within us; it is what creates our Type and determines our Strategy and Authority. Definition in the bodygraph shows us a schematic of the way energy flows within us. It also determines the way we operate, how we interact with and what we look for in others.

Here is a basic overview of the Five Kinds of Definition you'll encounter in a Human Design Bodygraph, with links to free audios by Ra Uru Hu discussing each. Would you like to listen to Ra’s introduction to Human Design Definition here, then read and listen to an explanation of yours below?
  

Split Definition - Approximately 46%

"You complete me." Introducing your significant other as your "other half" is a sentiment that almost half the people on this planet deeply resonate with. 

As a basic Split Definition, you have two separate areas of definition in your Human Design chart that are disconnected from each other. You are choicelessly drawn to people who bring the aspects that connect your areas of definition. The quality of your life depends on your bond with the right other. When you find a person with the right bridging gate(s), you experience a sense of wholeness. But just because you feel that way when you are with certain people doesn't mean they are correct for you.

 

Here's the conditioning simple Splits need to be aware of:

It's possible to be blinded by bridges if you are a basic Split Definition. You could spend all your time and energy looking for what you think you need (if just one gate would bridge your split) to be whole.

What you feel is “missing” that would bridge the two parts of you is what can become where you focus all your attention and your decision-making upon.

More rarely, when it takes more than a channel to bridge your split, now you think the missing elements in your design are what the world is missing, and that's why you don't have what you need in life or feel whole.
