The Human Design Spleen center has 7 gates and is about our existential, instinctual, and intuitive awareness. Using the senses of the body – sight, touch, taste, smell, hearing, and intuitive knowing – it attunes to the present moment and sends an alert (aka “true” fear) when there is a risk to our safety, health, or overall wellbeing.
As with all gates in the chart, there is a full spectrum of energy that can be experienced in the splenic gates and the “frequency” we are on with any given gate is about how well that energy is flowing.
When we are attuned to the present moment in the spleen and listening to our intuition about what is safe and healthy, we are on the “high” end of the spectrum. In this space, we can more easily flow through even the most challenging parts of life without getting bogged down in fear, scarcity, or lack.
Here are the signs you are in a flow state with the gates of the spleen:
