Human Design Gate 50 – Gene Key 50 – The Tuning Fork

The official name for Human Design Gate 50 is The Gate of Values. But I call it The Tuning Fork because its primary action is to harmonize the vibration of a group to a frequency that is rooted in the values and beliefs that will serve everyone.

The Energy Spectrum of Human Design Gate 50

All energy in the Human Design chart exists on a spectrum of potential

On the “positive” end of the spectrum, Human Design Gate 50 is the energy for harmonizing the vibration of a group to a frequency that is rooted in the values and beliefs that will serve everyone. Gate 50 has an instinctive knowing that groups are only as healthy as each member and can easily spot fears that “corrupt” a group. With this awareness, it is able to determine the values that will serve it, the community and the collective. 

On the “negative” end of the spectrum, Human Design Gate 50 is the energy for staying in groups even though you can sense their “corrupt” nature. It may live out of fear, anger, and poor boundaries and is be easily persuaded into incorrect values and beliefs by unhealthy groups. This ultimately can lead to burnout and confusion. 

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 50 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 50 is to know your values, revisit them often, and live in integrity with them. 

My Personal Experience with Human Design Gate 50 (Gene Key 50)

Gate 50 is undefined in my chart but it does hold a special place in my heart.  

The first Human Design Map I ever made was for someone with gate 50 in their incarnation cross. I wrote about what a profound experience that was in my post on gate 15

But, that aside, gate 50 has played a pretty significant role in my life because my conscious south node is also defined by its harmonic gate, human design gate 27.

Since I have passed my Uranus Opposition, I have shifted into gate 28 being my nodal “petri dish.” (I explain the petri dish concept in my post on gate 48). 

But, for most of my life, I have been deeply challenged in finding the balance between my needs and the needs of others. 

There are lots of places in my chart that can point to that, having transpersonal karma being the main one. But, the chart aside, I think most women, especially of my age, were conditioned to sacrifice themselves for the sake of others. 

So, whether it all comes down to gate 27 in my south node, I can’t say for sure. 

What I can say, though, is that the thing that shifted my energy in gate 27 was knowing my values and aligning myself with them. 

Inside the Human Design Map portal, I have a guide on defining your values. If you are a map client, you can find that here

Some of my top values are integrity, intention, and clarity. With a mix of individual and collective circuitry, I also value individual and collective empowerment. 

And nowhere in those values do I put myself at the bottom of the list. More importantly, I don’t surround myself with people who expect that from me. 

I no longer believe that I was put on this earth to please others. 

I started surrounding myself with people who understood that you can’t get water out of a dry well. I stopped being attached to what certain groups of people thought about me. And I let go of the idea that my value as a human being came from what I could do for others. 

I can’t say that I always get the balance right. As I said before, I am a 5/2 profile which means my karma is transpersonal. So, on some level, I will always be balancing my need to serve others with my need to go within and be in my own flow. And deconditioning is about practice, not perfection. 

(You’ll learn about your profile and karma in the Human Design Map.)

But, for the most part, I do understand that honoring my needs + values and giving from the overflow is the way to go. And, I practice letting the chips fall where they may – by letting others think whatever they want about me. 

And, I am starting to see that, as a karmic mirror for others (5/2), doing what is best for me and in alignment with my values is a powerful mirror to hold up. 

Affirmations for Human Design Gate 50

Using your Human Design to create affirmations is a powerful way to activate the full potential of your chart. Here are some affirmations for Gate 50:

I live according to my values.

I know which groups are healthy and which ones aren’t.

I harmonize groups to a higher frequency.

Inside your Human Design Map, you’ll get a full list of empowering beliefs for your type + strategy, authority, profile, and all four gates of your incarnation cross and show you how to go from affirmation to full-on embodiment. In the meantime, be sure to also check out my post on how to make Human Design affirmations work.

Now it’s your turn to contemplate Gate 50

When you stand in the truth that the gifts of gate 50 are always available to you (whether it’s defined in your chart or not)…

What do you value? (not sure? There is a bonus worksheet in the Human Design Map to walk you through defining your values.)

What do your values look like in action?

On a scale from 1 to 4, do you honor your values each day? 1 is not honoring your values at all and 4 is absolutely putting your values first.

How might the people you surround yourself with be influencing the way you show up for your values? Do you want to keep it that way? Or change it? 

I encourage you to take some time with these questions. Take them out into your world and let their answers reveal themselves to you. Intend for deeper levels of clarity about gate 50.

And, if you have gate 50 in your Human Design Incarnation Cross, be sure to check out The Human Design Map where I go super deep into each gate of your cross.
