Why I’m Obsessed with Gene Keys as a Transformational Tool

I want to share with you why I'm obsessed with the Gene Keys. If you are following me on any of the social channels (follow me on Instagram here), you will see that I'm talking about it quite a bit, and even joking that I've come out of the “woo-woo” closet to share more on this topic. But in all honesty, I have been really going deep with this tool called the Gene Keys, and like I always do, I like to go really deep to get the insights and the breakthroughs for myself so that I can then bring it to you. 

I remember one of the last times that I did this, I had been working with Bob Proctor. I had been getting certified as a consultant with Bob Proctor and his approach around shifting your paradigms and really thinking into the results that you want. It was amazing. After I did the work myself, got certified and was leveraging the tools and the lessons for me, I then brought it to all of you. My clients absolutely went crazy over bringing Thinking into Results to them. But after that, it kind of brought up a new issue, if you will. After you understand that you have paradigms and habitual ways of thinking and feeling, and realize that there is certain conditioning that is holding you back. But, how do you identify what those limiting beliefs are? How do you identify the paradigms that are holding you back from being able to fully step into your gifts and who you are? How do you step into your true calling and higher purpose? Well, that is a quest I started to go down.

1:1 Coaching

What was interesting is that I tried some different modalities to help with this. I think the obvious one is working with a coach one-on-one. That if you can work with a good coach, one-on-one, through a series of questions, they can help you to unearth what those paradigms are, which is great. In fact, I actually spent $15,000 for a five hour session with a master coach to unearth some of that. Was it worth it? Yes, but that's a lot of money. And you know what? It wasn't ongoing support. It was literally for five hours of a VIP coaching day where I, yes, had a very big breakthrough, but then it was over. I couldn't recreate what happened because they used their skills as a coach to get that out of me. Well, how do I keep doing the transformation if that's the case? That's one obvious way is to work with a coach.

The Enneagram

The second tool that I tried was the Enneagram. It was fantastic in the diagnostics. I really felt like the diagnostics of who I really am in terms of my thinking and what I desire were awesome, and a lot of my clients really loved getting typed by the Enneagram. The problem with the Enneagram is that it's very subjective, and it's really hard to get it right. You need a trained expert in the Enneagram to type you because if you don't get typed, more often than not, when you take the test it's not correct. What I have been told is upwards of 60% to 75% of the time, the tests are not correct. This actually happened to me. I have taken the test probably seven times, and it's never actually given me my true type. 

In fact, I could only figure out my true type by working with an expert in the Enneagram to get typed. That's challenging because as I'm in the pursuit of bringing tools to thousands of women like yourself to help you be able to identify and transform your paradigms, and step into your true gifts and your true calling, if you need to pay an expert, that doesn't scale.

Human Design

I was on the quest. I was continuing to search. If you continue to ask the right questions, the answers will become available. It just so happened that a friend of mine was doing Human Design, and I wanted to learn a little bit more about it. You know, I'm a very curious person. I love personal development tools and really getting to know myself, and how I can become better, so I started to look into Human Design. I'm not going to lie, my eyes went a bit cross when I first started getting into it. It's a lot of information, and there were some things that weren't totally resonating with me. Don't get me wrong. I really love different aspects of it, it really excites me, and I have fun learning it. But, my quest was to find a tool to help transformation. To help deconditioning. To help truly create paradigm shifts. In the process of understanding Human Design, the Gene Keys presented themself.

Gene Keys

The Gene Keys just absolutely blew my mind. Some of the reasons that I love the Gene Keys is that it ties to a fundamental principle that I believe in. In this world of coaching, if you don't teach your clients how to self coach themselves, then I don't think you're doing a great job as a coach. We don't want our clients to be so dependent on us as coaches for results. Even if you're working one-on-one with a client or you're working one-on-one with a coach, you're, you're meeting once a week probably at best, and maybe there's some interaction with email or Voxer. In a group setting, it’s even more limited. You are in your own life. Throughout the rest of the days of the week that we’re not being coached, we are with ourselves. We are with our own mind, with the noise in our mind, with the habitual thinking, habitual feelings, habitual actions that we’re working to shift and to change.We’re working on that transformation day in and day out. If you don't know how to self-coach in the moments of the day, you're not going to win this game of life. If you're a coach and you don't help your clients be able to self-coach themselves in the moments of the day, they will not get the results that they want. 

For some reason, I think that people can think that if we teach self-coaching, then they don't need us as coaches. That's not true at all. There's still things we're blocked in. There's still ways in which we need coaches to help us. There's no doubt about that. This doesn't eliminate the need for coaching, but it's so powerful. 

When I discovered the Gene Keys, I think the thing that got me so excited is the ability for you to self coach yourself and a pathway to do that. That's what I think is so phenomenal. You have the ability through the guidance, through the Gene Keys, and through your profile in the Gene Keys to follow a path of inner transformation through self-coaching and contemplation. To me, that is a win-win-win! 

The second component as to why I love the Gene Keys is that there are very specific transformational journeys that you go on through the Gene Keys and through your profile in the Gene Keys, and there's three ones. 

The Activation Sequence

The first one is called the Activation Sequence. It's really your Incarnation Cross inside of Human Design, if you're familiar with Human Design. This activation sequence is like a plot line of your life. Your life is very unique. When you go through the journey of transformation through this first sequence in the Gene Keys, it reveals the plot line of your life from your core challenge and patterns that continue to raise their head until you learn their lessons through to the breakthrough of your higher purpose in this life. It's the genius pathway. You can walk through that and literally completely change your life with that one sequence. In fact, we are working on that exact sequence right now in our program called InHer Circle

InHer Circle is a coach mastermind. In this program, we're working with coaches to bring them through their Activation Sequence so that they have their own transformation, but then they also learn how to use this to be tools with their own clients, which is really powerful. The Activation Sequence is incredible, and it's been so eye opening for me.

Your Prosperity Path

The second sequence that's really powerful is what Richard Rudd, the creator of the Gene Keys, calls the Pearl Sequence. I really look at it as your Prosperity Path. It's your pathway, your transformational pathway to prosperity. Your definition of prosperity. My definition of prosperity is freedom and fulfillment. What we define as prosperity is very much unique to each of us. I don't need to be extremely wealthy or anything like that. I'm not looking for that in my life. I am looking for freedom and fulfillment, and that is like the definition of prosperity to me. Yours could be different, but the path to prosperity, which is the Pearl Sequence inside of the Gene Keys, gets me so excited. It reveals your true vocation. 

The Pearl Sequence, or as I like to call it, the Prosperity Path also reveals who you're meant to be working with in this lifetime. I like to call it your Soul Society. If you are in business, it's kind of like your niche and who your dream clients are. It also then helps to reveal your brand. Then ultimately it reveals the harvest of your prosperity. Who you're really meant to be in this world through doing all of this work. It is so cool. When I looked at my Pearl Sequence, my Prosperity Path, I was blown a away at how I've actually been living it. It took me years of hard challenges to get here. Had I had the Gene Keys much earlier, oh my goodness, it probably would've been an easier path. This is why I'm bringing it to all of you. It actually shows exactly what I've been doing in my business, who I've been serving, and ultimately the harvest I'm trying to create in terms of my life's work. 

That is a powerful sequence that is just so eye opening in terms of how to create that prosperity in your life. I think the coolest part is understanding your vocation and your true calling. 

The Venus Sequence

The third sequence is called the Venus Sequence. This is all about relationships and love. We're not meant to do inner transformation and create prosperity and just live on our own. We're here to have really meaningful, fulfilling relationships with other humans. The Venus Sequence really is so eye opening on your journey and your pathway to fulfilling relationships. It's such a powerful sequence that it is also a journey that we include in our programs as well. Even though a lot of women come to me to understand their calling and to get help in standing out in their business in the online space, at the end of the day, we are here to also be alongside others and have beautiful relationships. Therefore, we always bring that piece in as well. Um, it's a really beautiful, uh, transformational journey around relationships. If you think about it, when you think about joy and prosperity and purpose and love, it’s all included. Now, what we do in our programs is I help to coach you and guide you, but the ultimate responsibility is you really doing the work. You have a pathway. You have a compass and tools to do it in the comfort of your own home for a teeny tiny fraction of what it would be to work with a master coach. 

Keep it Simple

Another reason why I'm obsessed with the Gene Keys is that the pathway of transformation is not complicated. To go from what Richard Rudd refers to as your shadow frequencies, which are your limiting patterns and beliefs to your highest potential frequency, your highest potential energy, your highest level of thinking and feeling. He calls that your Siddhi. It's kind of like your divine essence. I call it Her. If you've been with me long enough, we call it BEcoming Her. In the middle of all that, you have a gift. 

This gift is the field of transformation. What happens is, is that your lowest frequency energy of one of the spheres in your profile if they're in your lowest frequency, you're not going to feel good. Either your health, your wealth, or your relationships will be in a tough spot when you are in the shadow of your specific Gene Key. When you are in the Siddhi frequency of your Gene Key, you are like one with the divine. You are Her. You are your Highest Energy Realm. Honestly, that's really challenging for humans to stay at that level. We're humans, of course. The middle ground of the highest and the lowest frequencies is the Gift. It's that field of transformation. It's where you start to work to embody and practice to embody that higher energy and that higher frequency. 

You're not always going to be able to maintain your Gift, and that's where you have the awareness and the consciousness shifts and the new paradigms being formed, and you literally have a process to do it. It is the coolest thing. I'm obsessed with the Gene Keys for transformation, for awareness, for understanding who you truly are, your plot lines in life, the patterns that you need to overcome, the gifts that are inside of you, your true vocation. The list goes on and on.
