The Human Design Roadmap (Part 9): Gates and Channels Made Simple - The Human Design Podcast #270

podcast Apr 27, 2023

We’re back with Part 9 of the Human Design Roadmap Series! The purpose of this series is to help you answer the ultimate question, “okay, I have my chart, NOW what?!”. If you’ve discovered Human Design but are overwhelmed and confused, I’m giving you the freaking roadmap!

In this episode of The Human Design Podcast, I’m going to be talking about the gates and channels and breaking it down in a super simple way that is practical and actionable.

I hear and see so many people trying to learn every single gate and channel in the design, and this is usually when the overwhelm kicks in. Plot twist - you don't NEED to memorize every gate and channel (there are gates I didn't even realize I had until last year)...

In this episode, I talk about:

  • What the gates and channels are, how to locate them and what they "mean"
  • What resources you can use to help you understand your gates better
  • What a hanging gate is and how to know whether the energy is "on" all the time or in certain circumstances
  • How the transits or another person's aura can "switch on" the energy of the gate
  • How to interpret the gates and know what's true for you and also move through resistance

In short, your gates and channels are absolutely your superpowers and gifts you bring to the world. Pay attention to what resonates with you and what you have resistance to when learning about your gates (they are both worth looking into).

Don't overcomplicate it, sometimes all you need to do is read about your gates and then allow your external reality to show you how these themes play out in your life.
