The Energy Spectrum of Human Design Gate 32
All energy in the Human Design chart exists on a spectrum of potential.
On the “positive” end of the spectrum, Human Design Gate 32 is the energy for guiding one’s community into its highest potential. Gate 32 sees the big picture, can sense what needs to change, and is in a healthy relationship with both success and failure. With this perspective, it is able to lead its family, friends, and community into a state of well-being without getting thrown off by the “failures” along the way.
On the “negative” end of the spectrum, Human Design Gate 32 is the energy for using fear as fuel for unhealthy relationships and community dynamics such as codependency, hierarchy, and pressuring others to conform. It can isolate itself from its family, friends, or community due to a belief that you must go through life alone. Or become immersed in groupthink, cults, or fundamentalist systems that reject the outer or natural world.
If you don’t like the results that the “negative” side of the spectrum is creating in your life, you can raise the frequency of Gate 32 with a number of boundaries, practices, and tools.
(I cover the practices for the gates of your incarnation cross in The Human Design Map.)
The most important thing to raise the frequency of gate 32 is to create a conscious and empowering relationship with both success and failure. And do shadow integration work — especially in areas where you believe that you (and your group) are superior to others. This will help you to navigate successful change.
My Personal Experience with Human Design Gate 32 (Gene Key 32)
Like most of the tribal human design circuitry, Gate 32 is undefined in my chart. In fact, relative to my individual and collective circuitry, I have very little tribal definition in my chart.
After many years of deconditioning, through Human Design and otherwise, I’ve come to understand that I’ve never really valued being part of a group. My attachment to being liked was more about who I thought I should be, rather than what actually feels true for me.
I would even go so far as to say that groups are hard for me. I thrive 1:1 but become easily overwhelmed when in a group environment.
Other than my map portal community, where I am the “leader”, I mostly find myself “on the edge” groups and rarely feel “part” of them.
That is especially true in groups where the “leaders” are put on pedestals and worshiped or where you “have to” believe and value the same things to be accepted. That kind of thinking has never really made sense to me. My autonomy has always been more important than group think.
For a long time, I made that mean that something was wrong with me, that I was unlikable, or that I was a “bad” person.
And I can see the threads of Gate 32 running all through it.
When we were cavepeople, we lived in small, close knit communities, often of only around 100 people.
Everyone played a role in the survival of its tribe. If you couldn’t play your given role, you were banished and left to die alone.
In other words, success was dependent on the group structure and failure meant imminent death.
This has created a deep lineage of fear around belonging and a world where groupthink is revered.
But, the world is changing; we are moving into a new aeon.
We are headed into a time where true success is dependent on individual empowerment rather than blind adherence. And it is why I am so honored to do the work I do with the Human Design Map.
We, you and me, are the leading edge of this change. And I am here for it.
Now, of course, doesn’t mean that groups, families, or communities are dying all together. In fact, I think we are seeing them begin to take shape in whole new ways.
The old structures that have been held up by dogma, echo chambers, and authoritarian leadership are crumbling.
They are being rebuilt with the well-being of individuals in mind. We are moving into the awareness that a group of empowered individuals is actually stronger than ones made of disempowered people.
When I look at my experience with the group structures in my life, I can see that my definition of success was always rooted in individual empowerment.
And, on some level, I’ve always trusted that empowered individuals create empowered groups, and empowered groups create an empowered collective.
I don’t have the energy to surrender to groupthink, fundamentalism, or “leader” worship. And, if that means staying on the edges, so be it. I’d rather be inside the map portal blazing a new trail of empowered individuals, anyway. That is what success means to me.

What is your relationship with success? What about failure? How are they working for you?
