If you look at your Human Design, it is plain as day how you are meant to make decisions. Of course, you may need someone with some training to explain it to you fully, but I'll tell you one thing, none of us were meant to make decisions with our mind!
By my Human Design, I get warning signs when something is not right. They can come once, they can come quietly, or they can just keep coming and coming and coming. And if I let myself, I can start to come up with reasons, and pros and cons, and other people's ideas, and I can ask other people's opinion, and I can see how I really feel, and on and on and on. But every step I take away from this warning signal in me, is me stepping away from MY truth!
That said, in my Soul Contract, I have a tendency to be impulsive and make foolish decisions. And this is probably echoed in my Scorpio and Aries nature. So there is a balance. And you can also see in my Soul Contract, that I am at risk for asking others what I should do, which is the same as giving away my power, which causes low back pain. And, guess who woke up with low back pain this morning? ME!
So, I need to make this decision, that is hard, because I have to deal with everyone's thoughts, and emotions around my decision. And because in my Human Design I feel pressure and pain from other people's questions and emotions, this is not really that fun for me!
The date of the event where I have to make a change, is also represented by Soul Contract Numerology as - War and Peace, or Great Movement, Exploration, and Development of Self. So, what do I choose here? I'd say, this one at least is a no-brainer. Exploration and Development of Self over War, and Peace can be found when I go within to find my own inner peace, and don't even engage in the potential Social War, because the Social War is usually just a distraction from our own Inner Peace.
Even Spirit asked me to slow down before writing this article by making my laptop a little slower to load this morning. And again it slowed me before I could hit submit by making my internet crash, until I consulted my cards and Book of Light before moving forward.
Here is the message I received:
Book of Light - Compensation (feel your emotions)
It is interesting, as above I said that I can get distracted by my emotions, and yet, here I am told to feel them first, before I act. And only act if I still feel I need to. And this is the balanced advice I would receive from my Soul Contract and Astrology, but NOT my Human Design. So, there are many layers, and it is important to know the nuances. And none of my approaches involved giving my power away to someone else or ignoring my feelings (although I did try both).
Everything is intentional and sent with love. Frustration is just the ego wanting to go faster than what is in the highest and best good. We just have to be able to listen to ourselves and to the subtle signs that are being sent.
Unless you prefer to be hit by the truck? - The subtle signs are the feathers in the title of this article (my initial red flags). If you can't decipher them or don't listen, along comes illness or injury (like the sore throat and back ache I was starting to feel). And if you can't or don't listen to that, here comes the truck (and I will let you use your imagination on that one!)
Will you listen to the feather, the brick, or the truck?

No one knows what is best for you, other than YOU! And until you know what parts of you are actually you, and what parts of you are other people's opinion or emotions or whatever, amplified, you may struggle.
Even with this knowledge, I can struggle, because it isn't always easy to be who you are, and feel the impact or reaction that who you are may cause on others. But I am ever striving, every day, every moment, to be true to myself and the people that matter most in my life: my kids, myself, and my husband!
