In Human Design, success is the signature of a Projector.

Regardless of someone’s Human Design type, I rarely tell them what their signature means because each person experiences the sensation differently. As a Capricorn-heavy Projector, my answer to what is success is cut and dry: when it rains cash. 💰️💰️💰️

One of the callings I’ve felt this year is to unsubscribe myself from bad money narratives.

I use bad money as a catch-all for social conditioning that suggests a form of receiving or spending money is bad.

Some examples of bad money narratives are:

  • Making easy money because you’re white/hot/light skin/young/have family money/have support from a spouse/etc.
  • NSFW money-making.
  • Inheritance, welfare, food stamps, any sort of gifted money due to circumstances outside of your control.

I see these narratives as conditioning I've subscribed to for a long time. They were relevant to me because they were relevant to the people I surrounded myself with. My immigrant parents instilled the fear that if I didn’t work hard enough, my family might face deportation. The current social issues in North Carolina reveal that people think if you’re not working two jobs and hurting yourself, you’re lazy and deserve to be in the situations you’re in.

I unsubscribe from these narratives.

I should be terrified of poverty. I’ve been homeless as a young adult. Being cold and hungry wasn’t the hard part. It was the shame of picking food out of the trash or asking the pizza guy if he’d spare you a slice right before he closed. To this day, I still struggle to accept donations for my content because it brings me back to a time when I begged.

I should be bitter that a portion of what I make goes to taxes or that some people want to stay on food stamps. I should be calling people who prefer collecting unemployment (which in NC, pays more than most entry-level jobs) lazy.

All because I’ve been there before and if I can get out of this, so can they.

I unsubscribe from those narratives, too.

Because it’s none of my business where someone is in their journey, how they’re receiving their resources, or how they use their resources.

I unsubscribe from the narrative that someone else receiving money means they’re taking away from me.

This works for the other side of the spectrum, too.

People treat you differently when you have resources.

They question where the resources come from. They question whether you’re really worth what you’re capable of calling in. You become a walking magnifying glass to the narratives that they are still subscribed to and sometimes, they’ll need to unsubscribe to you. I honor where they are in their journey. If my field is too out of alignment for whatever they’re experiencing, I hold the space for them to resubscribe to me later.

I recently had someone question why I’d purchase $150 Dungeons and Dragons dice from an indie creator when I could’ve made my own set for a fraction of the price. The narratives here include, “She is not deserving of $150 for something so simple,” or “$150 is too much for something you love.”

I also had people laugh at why I’d pay for a game of Dungeons and Dragons when so many people offer it for free. The narratives here include, “I do this for free, why would you pay someone for it?” or “It’s not possible to turn this hobby into an income.”

People who have a healthy relationship with their resources are often seen as greedy or money-hungry. Unsubscribe.

Dance in your money.

Scream down the hall when that Paypal alert pops up.

Invest in things you love.

Hire that awesome person.

When you receive a check for something you didn’t put an ounce of energy into, say thank you.

When you’re gifted something that someone else felt you deserved, honor their narrative and subscription to you.

The old conditioning and narratives will still pop up – catch them. Honor them. Thank them for their time. Collapse them. Unsubscribe.
