Who We Are…

About Alison Van De Pol

Hi! I’m Alison Van De Pol, wife, mom, Human Design Specialist, Holistic Health Coach, Registered Nurse and much more! Above and before all of those though, I am a soul surrendering to my Design and helping others do the same.  

Several years before Melissa Wright and I founded Guided Life By Design, and synchronistically created #SurrenderStory, I was divinely led down a path that included Human Design. With my nursing and integrative nutrition background, I am trained in literally hundreds of tools, techniques, and philosophies, but from the moment I learned about Human Design it resonated to my core. 

I often say Human Design combines Science + Spirit, directing you to “turn in and tune in” to your unique and perfect Design that is in your energetic DNA. 

When my personal Human Design chart was presented to me for the first time, it felt like coming home after being gone a lifetime.  It was familiar, yet distant. It lit a fire within me that drove me to start living as my authentic self.  Prior to this, I had been conditioned to live otherwise – always looking outside for strategies and resources that were widely accepted by society and appeared to be working for others. This took me far off my path and often made me feel like I wasn’t enough. It led to years of serious physical illness and mental and emotional discomfort.  As you can imagine, and perhaps you can relate, not living as your authentic self manifests in all areas of life, which is why I am so incredibly passionate about holistic health.

As I surrendered to my Design, magical and miraculous things began to happen.  Things that were difficult to explain, but were anything but coincidental. Some of these things have been challenging, but in those times I further surrendered and was further awed. 

For these reasons and more, I am emphatically grateful and blessed to help others “turn in and tune in” and surrender to their Design.  Your journey will look different than mine or anyone else’s because your Design is different.  I’m not here to tell you what your path should be, I’m here to inspire and support you as you find it from within.

About Melissa Wright

When I first found Human Design I felt trapped living a life that always felt like something was missing. I was struggling in my business and still working a day job that sucked the life out of me.

I felt like all of the relationships in my life were superficial and I was longing for deeper connections.

I was feeling guilty about the lack of results I was having in my business, but no matter how hard I worked I just couldn’t seem to make any progress.

And it felt like I was neglecting my kids, with almost nothing to show for it. And in truth, I no longer trusted myself to make good decisions.

Learning my Human Design helped me to see how trying to
were keeping me from becoming who I’m meant to be and the success I desired. 
Everything has changed for me because of following my Human Design and Decision Making Strategy
