The official name for Human Design Gate 43 is the Gate of Insight but I call it The Listener Within.
Human Design Gate 43 is in the sign of Scorpio.
Scorpio is the sign of deep inner transformation, mystery, and erotic power. It’s all about going within and digging deep.
In the Human Design chart, Gate 43 is a gate in the Ajna center and it connects to the Throat via gate 23.
The Energy Spectrum of Human Design Gate 43
It has a way of coming up with ideas that create breakthroughs. It can recognize the essential nature of staying true to your own inner truth.
When Gate 43 is manifesting in your life unconsciously (aka the shadow), you may struggle with making space to listen to your inner wisdom.
Depending on whether you internalize or externalize the shadow of Gate 43, it can look like listening to others instead of listening to yourself. Or filling your time with other people’s thoughts, information rabbit holes, and “educating” yourself.
In the shadow frequency, it feels worried, doubt, and confusion.
But, as with all shadows, there is always a gift. Our inner work is to bring the shadow into the light of consciousness and embrace the full spectrum of its potential.
The gift (aka the conscious side) of Gate 43 is the awareness that your inner wisdom is your most important asset and it is to be trusted, no matter what. It’s knowing that thoughts and ideas can be a playground when we give them space to roam free. It’s making space for stillness allowing ideas to flow and that timing is everything when communicating ideas.
Human Design Gate 43 is all about taking your time to think things through and staying true to what your inner voice is telling you.
How to Choose Worthiness of the Gifts of Gate 43
I have gate 43 defined in my chart.
And, I can definitely say that it has been a lifelong struggle for me to listen to my own inner wisdom instead of listening to other people’s insights and advice. My own fear of rejection convinces me that my inner wisdom is not enough.
And whether you have the gate 43 or not, we all fear that our own inner wisdom, insights, and ideas will be rejected. So, we ignore ourselves and yield to the opinions of others.
And, that my friend, never leads you to the life you really deserve. It leads you to a life of frustration, bitterness, anger, and disappointment.
With each choice to ignore your inner wisdom and do what other people think you should, you drill into your subconscious that you are not enough, that you don’t deserve a life guided by your own knowledge, and that you are unworthy of a life of satisfaction, success, peace, and delight.
Remember, worthiness isn’t something you prove or earn. Worthiness is a CHOICE you make – in your heart, in your mind, and with your ACTIONS.
The first step is to CHOOSE WORTHINESS of the time and space that you need to hear your own inner wisdom. And that means time and space that is completely free from the influence of other people’s thoughts, ideas, and insights.
Now, you don’t have to be precious about this. The time and space does not need to be bathtubs on mountain tops with Unicorns frollocking in rainbows.
It can be as simple as driving to work or washing the dishes in complete silence, without podcasts, music, or audiobooks. It can be taking an extra three minutes on your pee break at work. It can be a tiny moment of placing your hand on your heart and breathing.
You deserve that. And then some.
So, no matter where you are on the spectrum of making space to HEAR your own inner wisdom, I challenge you to expand your capacity for your deserving by making just a little more.
