The Energy Spectrum of Human Design Gate 55
All energy in the Human Design chart exists on a spectrum of potential.
On the “positive” end of the spectrum, Human Design Gate 55 is the energy for embodying faith in the spirit of abundance. For the 55, abundance is the very nature of life. I can feel that God is Everything and that Earth is simply a place for the Divine to play in infinite expressions.
On the “negative” end of the spectrum, Human Design Gate 55 is the energy for rejecting your “low” emotional experiences and using them as evidence for lack, victim consciousness, and punishment. When the 55 doesn’t use it’s emotions as creative fuel, it loses faith.
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 55 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 55 is to become comfortable with feeling all of your feelings and learn about the wisdom of your emotions. This type of embodiment will show you how to use them as creative fuel.
My Personal Experience with Human Design Gate 55 (Gene Key 55)
One of my favorite people on the planet, Leah Badertscher, has gate 55 in her conscious sun.
She has been a long-time friend and was one of my clients when I did private coaching. She was even one of the first to get a Human Design Map.
And though she was my client, she taught me so much about what faith in abundance actually feels like.
Through her, the concept of abundance moved from being theoretical to something tangible I could experience in my body. In witnessing her, I saw what abundance looks like in human form.
She has this tenacious AF spirit that is riding on a wing and a prayer.
She has shown me that faith is everything. And not religious faith.
Sure, that may be the path for some. But as we head into the 2027 transition, cultivating faith in the Divine that dwells within is how we will thrive.
Faith in your own spirit. Faith that if you can dream it, it is already yours. Faith that life is a table and we are here to feast.
What has become clear to me is that faith doesn’t look like sitting around and hoping for some mystical savior to come along.
Yes, there are guides in both the natural and spirit realms.
But those guides are always a mirror of your own inner wisdom.
And faith is showing up and working with what you’ve got.
It’s Creative, with a capital C, as Leah says, and it is about cultivating an intentional relationship with the part of you that already knows and trusts in the abundance of life.
Faith is trusting that when you ask, it is given.
Faith knows that we aren’t given dreams as a torture tactic – they are for our becoming.
The things we most desire out of life are catalysts for knowing our spiritual essence and aligning with our higher purpose.
(This is one of the bazillion reasons I love Human Design. It gives context to the things we’ve always wanted and is the clearest map for aligning with your higher purpose.)
Faith is allowing the spirit to dance through your every move. It is surrendering to the whole experience of being human.
It is being here now, feeling it all the way through, and finding the abundance in all of it.
