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 contemplation of Human Design Gate 57 (Gene Key 57)
I have gate 57 in the conscious sun of my incarnation cross which means it is the most important gate in my chart. And, I’m a splenic projector which means I make decisions, in the now, with my intuition.
And to say that I’ve been on a journey with my intuition would be the understatement of the century.
The reason Human Design pulled me into its web so quickly is because of how affirming it was to learn about the basics of my design.
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 and, many times, my mind would convince me that my intuition was illogical and therefore, untrustworthy.
I was deeply afraid of being seen as weird, crazy, or “too” suspicious and mostly let my mind run the show.
Things started to turn around after having a life-changing session with a healer that helped people trust their intuition.
I told her about an experience I’d had where I felt suspicious of a well-known business coach that all of my colleagues seemed to love to pieces.
The moment I visited their 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 won’t get into all of the details of what went down but 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!). She said:
“Your suspicion is your intuition.”
My mind was so blown.
I’d made suspicion wrong in my mind.
After that session with her, I started to notice feelings of suspicion, mistrust, and leeriness. If I picked up “bad vibes” at all, I started trusting them more and more.
By the time I found Human Design, I was already doing the deconditioning work around my intuition. And Human Design took it all to the next level.
As I have deepened into my experiment, my splenic NO has become more and more refined. I’d already peeled back the bigger layers of all the “reasons” I wasn’t trusting my intuition.
Now, my focus is really on noticing that more subtle layers and doing the work to trust those.
And what I can say, without 100% certainty, is that it has changed the quality of my life in ways I could have never imagined.
I am truly thriving. Life isn’t perfect, of course. Life is 50/50.
But, my relationships are thriving. My business is booming. My body is becoming healthier and healthier. My self-care is on point.
More importantly than any of those “outer” things, though, is 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?!?!
