The Energy Spectrum of Human Design Gate 57
All energy in the Human Design chart exists on a spectrum of potential.
On the “positive” end of the spectrum, Human Design Gate 57 is the energy for trusting your intuitive knowing above all else; it is highly intuitive, clairaudient, and quite possibly psychic. Gate 57 believes that everything you need to know is alive in the present moment and that the body is the most trustworthy source of intuition. The future is bright when you trust yourself.
On the “negative” end of the spectrum, Human Design Gate 57 is the energy for not trusting your intuition or writing off your intuitive knowing because there is nothing logical to back it up. This lack of trust can lead to trusting other people’s opinions or overriding intuitive wisdom with logic, reason, and mental rationalization and creating a life that is frustrating, bitter, anger-filled, or disappointing.
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 57 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 57 is to spend plenty of time in your own pure aura so that you can hear your intuition speak to you. Being attached to whether your intuition is “right” or “wrong” will impede your ability to trust. There are no wrong ways or wrong decisions. It’s all leading to you knowing your Divine nature.
My Personal Experience with Human Design Gate 57 (Gene Key 57)
Gate 57 is defined in the conscious sun of my incarnation cross, which means it is the most important gate in my chart. It is my “Divine Invitation” to trust my intuition and create the kind of life that sets me up for intuitive clarity.
And, well, it has been a journey.
For most of my life, I was on a path of repeatedly ignoring my intuition and regretting it later.
I would get very clear NO signals but I would discount them. My thoughts would convince me that my intuition was illogical and therefore, untrustworthy.
I had disintegrated shadows around being weird, crazy, or “too” suspicious. I never wanted others to judge me as odd or strange for my “illogical” decisions.
That completely shifted when I had a session with a healer who focused on helping others reclaim their intuitive gifts.
I told her about an experience I’d had with a well known business coach.
My colleagues wouldn’t shut up talking about this guy. But when I visited his website, my whole body said NO and I felt immediately suspicious.
But, in my mind, I believed that because “all the cool kids” were hiring this person, that I should too. I thought that, clearly, my body was wrong and that I should do what everyone else was doing on.
You know what they say about jumping off of bridges?
Well, I jumped. And while I won’t get into all of the details of what went down, I will say that my suspicions were 100% spot the fuck on.
As I was telling the healer that story, she stopped me and she said something that would change my life forever (Human Design Gate 23 vibes!).
“Your suspicion is your intuition.”
My mind was so blown. Literally blown.
I cannot tell you how many times I’d felt suspicious in my life only to be told that I was being too sensitive (Human Design Gate 19) or ungracious (Human Design Gate 22). And, of course, only to realize later that I was right the whole time.
But, because I’d made suspicion wrong in my mind, I ignored it.
After that session with her, though, I started to pay extra close attention to sensations of suspicion, mistrust, and leeriness. If I picked up “bad vibes” at all, I started trusting them more and more.
I would walk away, no questions asked. And if people thought I was weird, strange, odd, crazy, or whatever, they could fuck right off with that noise.
I live by my intuition, not by other people’s thoughts. I embrace my weirdness. 😉
By the time I found Human Design, I was already doing a ton of deconditioning around my intuition. But, learning my design helped me take it to a whole new level.
(I’ll guide you through deconditioning inside the Human Design Map portal and integration course.)
My spleen is heavily defined and, according to Human Design, I have splenic authority.
That means my NO is essential to my safety and wellbeing.
So, now, my focus is all about peeling back all the ways my body says NO to things. Not just sensations like suspicion or “bad vibes” but things that don’t sound, smell, taste, look “right” are also ways my body says NO.
I’d be lying if I said that I trust those signals every time.
But, thankfully, I have compassion and Grace for myself. I know that with gate 57 in my conscious sun, my relationship with my intuition isn’t supposed to be all rainbows and butterflies.
There is “supposed to be” some grit there. And I have surrendered to the knowing that I will be on a lifelong journey of expanding my capacity to trust my intuition.
What I can say, though, with 100% certainty, is that leaning into my intuition more and more has changed the quality of my life in ways I could have never imagined.
I am truly thriving. Life isn’t perfect, of course, because it isn’t supposed to be. Earth is a place of duality.
But, my relationships are thriving. My business is booming. The map portal conversations I get to have with people, from all over the world, blow my mind.
My body is becoming healthier and healthier.
And, more importantly, that I actually trust myself. I am way less inclined to let my mind overrule my inner knowing and I am deeply embodied in my emotional signature of success.
How does it get better than this?!?!
