133: Understanding Human Design with Brandi Yates

Have you taken ALL the personality tests known to mankind? Hell, you’ve even resorted to finding out which Disney Princess you are and what your name reveals about you on Buzzfeed. While they all have amazing detail – you’re searching for something deeper – something that explains who you are on a level that can’t be explained.

Insert Human Design. When I first discovered Human Design, I was blown away by the accuracy, depth, and the “how the hell do you know that about me?” 

If you’re new to Human Design or have been Googling your chart trying to make sense of it – get a pen because today’s episode is going to rock your world. That’s why I invited Brandi Yates, a Human Design Coach, to help us understand Human Design and what it can tell us about ourselves.


In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The moment Human Design was first introduced to Brandi
  • What Human Design is and why it is a game-changer
  • The four types of Human Design types
  • What are strategies and authorities (and how they are used) in Human Design
  • How Human Design affects your business
  • The Human Design Centers


Brandi is a Human Design Coach that helps individuals understand their energetic make-up so that they can shift their energy to better align themselves to who they truly are and attract the life they truly desire. Since discovering Human Design, Brandi has left her hometown, moved into an RV with her partner, healed herself through connection and nature, and traveled across the US, exploring the different areas and experiencing the US on an energetic level!

1:1 Coaching with LauraAura – My mission is to help you align and simplify so you feel confident, trust your intuition, and expand in ways that make you feel alive. I combine energy work with grounded, practical action, and together we’ll acknowledge the limiting beliefs and habits that may be holding you back while leaning into who you truly are and how you work most efficiently.



“I’m always going to be a fighter, I’m always going to be ambitious. And I know that as a projector, I’ve got to utilize my energy to be able to be effective in that manner.”

“A lot of things that we’re doing, they’re being met with resistance. But the resistance is there for a reason.”

“It comes down to experimenting with your design […] understanding your strategy and your authority, and applying that into into your business can be very beneficial.”

“Utilizing your strategy […] can can help you understand where you should put your energy how you should enter into this situation.”

“When you’re going against your own design, burnout is the first person to show up.”

“When you’re in alignment, and you are being you, you’re performing in the way that you perform best, showing up in the way that you show up best, running your business in the way that you’re intended to run it, things just happen. It doesn’t have to be that boulder up the mountains. It can be more like, look at all these beautiful mountains around us.”
